For a camping spot in the heart of the thicket, this was great! I had a spot right on the river and it was always quiet - even being right next to the hotel. The trolley comes right to the park and there is also walking paths to nearly everything you need if you would rather do that. My kid loved it too because he was able to play without worrying too much. Everyone was friendly and we had a blast.
The only place we will camp in pigeon forge
We stayed here earlier in the year. This campground is very clean and has great amenities. Clean bathhouse and laundry room. It also has a jump pad and playground for kids.
New looking bathrooms and shower house. Washers and dryers. Big and clean pool. Big bouncy contraption for kids. Utility hookups are close. Sites are close together and a little cramped but enjoyed our stay. Campfire wood sold on site was very expensive. Office hours were a little short for us but worked out fine. Store has very nice hats and stickers for sale. Ice for sale on site. Shuddle runs through camp regularly to take you downtown. Staff was nice. Picked up trash bags before 10am every morning. Overall a great experience.
You can get to it all from here.. The strip, Dollywood, Gatlinburg and River tubing.
The campground is only a block from the main drag in pigeon forge, but you feel much further away. A mountain river flows right beside the campground to give it a restful feeling.
This is a great site for kids, with a good pool and jump park area. Also a nice loop for bike riding. The track ( go carts and game room) is a short walk away. Dollywood and splash country are about 10 minute drive time
The only negative I notice is the noise from the go cart track. The advantages far exceed this though
If your coming to pigeon forge, hard to go wrong with this place
I don’t like camping in the city, but Elkmont is closed from Nov-March. We try to come up camping in this area 4 times a year. Camp Riverslanding is our campground for after Christmas/New Years. We’ve stayed 2 years in a row & have reservations for this year. It’s quiet, spacious sites, some site on the river, very clean restroom/showers, laundry room & large play area for children. The staff are always extremely friendly & we’ve never had any issues while camping there. There’s a trolley that stops in the campground to take you wherever you want to go. Would definitely recommend this campground.
This is the best camp ground I have ever stayed at. During the summer they have activities for the kids. The camp staff is friendly. The bath house is awesome. It is like your own personal bathroom with shower. There is several of them. My son loves the pool.
Campground is located right downtown on the river. Kids loved jumping in the river, floating down a bit, and climbing out to do it all over again. We did several trips into the Smokey Mountain National Park. This was very convenient. The kids loved the bounce pillow and pool. The laundry and bath house were extremely clean and very upscale. I would say the only downside is that right across the river is a tall hotel.
We have begun to make this a yearly trip to this campground. The people around the grounds are always welcoming. Bathhouse and laundry area is the best I've ever seen. close to everything and has several trolley stops.
