Thanksgiving Weekend

It is so hard to get a reservation here, so we decided to take what we could get so we could try it out! Staff is very nice, park is clean and I’m sure in the summer it is bustling! Lots of cool summer activities and some amazing scenery and views of the lake. A tip to get reservations! Call and put your name on a waiting list for the dates you need. If they have cancellations, they call the people on the list instead of releasing the dates on the website!

Definitely going back!

We love staying here. It is so well done. Each site is clean and roomy with private fire pit. The premium sites have custom fireplaces and the views are gorgeous. I imagine it’s lots of fun in the summer with the lake and the private beach. People are so nice!!

Great views!

Lots to do here, don’t hesitate to rent a boat and enjoy Douglas lake. This place is very clean and the staff are amazing, doing whatever it takes to help you. Your 20 minutes from Pigeon Forge and all the amenities it provides.


The campground was beautiful and the staff was amazing. Best campground we have ever stayed at.


Price is a little higher than most but you get what you pay for. Great amenities and great views. There is so much to do you don’t even need to leave the campground

It’s nice

2nd time going with family and friends. It’s always a pleasant trip. All the amenities are nice. It’s a well deserved relaxed vacation away from working all the time. Stress free 😬👍

Best start to a road trip

Our first stop traveling cross country and it will be hard to beat! I know it’s called an RV resort but I didn’t think it would actually feel like a resort but it did. So beautiful and the dog exercise area was amazing. Should spend a few nights at least here.

Beautiful and clean!!

Stayed in mid September 2019. Beautiful views of the lake from almost everywhere in the park. Sites are meticulously maintained by staff and the staff was more than helpful. Pool was clean with two great water slides that many of us adults enjoyed it on many nights. Some sites were larger than others and some would be best for smaller trailers or class c/van campers. Bathrooms were each large individual rooms with a toilet/sink/shower each tiled beautifully and always clean. Rented a pet friendly pontoon boat and enjoyed the beautiful lake. Local marinas also offer rentals as well. Not a bad drive to Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg and we had Uber/Lyft drivers both share some great local info for next time. We loved this place so much we cancelled a trip to Disney to return here in fall 2020 (this time with one of the fancy fireplace sites). Suggestion- book FAR in advance…this place fills up quickly.


A beautiful campground on the Lake with lots of stuff for kids. No trees for shade but the sites are good size. Beware they charge if over 4 people and if you take two Vehicles.

I can’t say enough about this place

This was the cleanest, well maintained, friendliest and most beautiful camp ground we have visited so far. The staff was great.
