Family friendly and great location

Great spot with good access to pigeon forge, gatlinburg, and seveirville. Some spots are tight but the blob trampoline made my kids stay!

Great for kids

Great location. There were 2 pools, a lazy river and a kiddie pool. One of the pools looked brand new and had a snack shack at it. Clean nice bath houses. No complaints about this place. We will be back.

Great Access To Pigeon Forge and The Island

Spent a few days here in Sept of 2019. We camped in a tent and the weather was awesome. The Tent sites are raised beds with a gravel base. When i called and asked about the size of the tent sites i was told that the sites are 12'x12' but the two that we were on were much bigger than that. The sites had water and power and were with in reasonable walking distance to the bath house that was there at that time. The only real problem that we had was that they were building next to the tent camping sites and the workers would come in very early and very loudly. If I was to camp there again I would camp closer to the other end. 

The bath hose was very clean and tidy. I believe they cleaned it almost every morning.  The river that the tent sites bored isn't the best view but it was nice to see so many ducks. We even got a few visits from a friendly skunk, well I'm not so sure about friendly but we kept our distance and didn't get sprayed. 

We took in all of the near by amenities like Dollywood and The Island. If you're planning on having a night out and don't want to drive it was very easy to get an Uber driver.

All in all we will be back. The staff was very courteous and it was very convenient to have the gas station/convenience store as the front office. I liked having the accessibility to the main strip of pigeon forge while still being far enough off of it that road traffic didn't faze my sleep.

Great location

Beautiful location on the creek. It's near everything in Pigeon Forge but feels much more secluded. The thing that makes this campground stand out are the ducks. There are ducks everywhere. They will walk right up to your camper door and wait for you. They will eat out of your hand as well. Amenities include dog park, swimming pool, game room, and lazy river. There were alot of of renovations going on here when we went (during Covid-19). The place is going to look amazing when completed. One problem with this place is that it seems to have too much gravel and not enough grass. Alot of campsites don't have any grass at all. There are some dog bag stations throughout. Some pot holes too. I would suggest some repaving next.

Nice Campground

Nice campground with plenty of sites, most with full hookups. Plenty of 50amp options. The campground does have a section of full time sites and some of those are beginning to look a little shabby, however they all are in an area together. Clean Bathhouses, 2 nice pools and a lazy river along with a playground. Campground is along a Creek so there should be fishing available. We have stayed here several times over the years and will do so again.

Family Favorite!!

We have stayed here many times and absolutely LOVE it! The atmosphere is wonderful, family friendly and very peaceful. There are 2 pools, a lazy river, a playground and air mattress, plus it is just a couple of minutes from the Parkway, yet it feels like it is much farther from town. The bath houses are very clean and there is live entertainment on the weekends. This is our go-to stay when we are hiking The Smokies.

Pretty good spot in Pigeon Forge

Plenty of shade at all the campsites for campers and RVs, at least on the side we stayed on. Campers are pretty close together though. Two pools, a lazy river, a jumping pillow, basketball court, a couple of playgrounds, and occasional activities planned by the staff. Very close to a beautiful city park with a great playground as well. Drawbacks are as follows: 1) during the day, there seems to be a lot of vehicles parked on the basketball court 2)they are doing construction, which is great, but they start at 6am, which can be annoying for tent campers. 3) An open field for kickball or softball would be nice

First to Review
Easy to find and a fun place to stay.

We stayed at Clabough's Campground for only one night. The campground sits right off the main road (Wears Valley Rd), so it is easy to find. The downside to this is traffic is easy to hear from the sites towards the entrance. The sites towards the back (section D) probably don't hear traffic at all. There is a market and gas station that you go inside to check in and get your parking pass. The market sells fishing supplies, food, firewood, camping stuff and propane. The campsites were clearly marked and easy to locate. We stayed in a tent site. The designated tent sites are very small and can only accommodate 1 tent. There is a raised area with smooth river pebbles that you set your tent on. This is nice if it rains, because all the water will drain away quickly. However, I would rather not sleep on rocks, even if they are smooth pebbles. If the raised tent area was not there, I believe we could have set up 2 tents on the site. There are many sites that are right along Walden's Creek. This is perfect for fishing of swimming right next to your site. The moving water was also pleasant to listen to at night when the campground got quiet. The water, electric and dumpsters are easily accessed. Our fire ring was delivered very quickly by friendly staff. The tent sites are a close walk to one of the 2 pools. The other pool is right behind the market. You can drive or walk to the lazy river on the campground site. The lazy river is small but the kids really enjoyed it. There is a playground, jump pillow and basketball court. The restaurant is located inside the market and is a great place to cool off and use clean restrooms. The map of the campground is easy to read and well marked. We were at tent site C23. There is no shade at this site until the afternoon and then it is perfectly shaded by the trees on the opposite side of the creek. My kids swam in the creek, which ranged from only a couple of inches deep to about 3 feet deep. The water was flowing but not crazy fast. The tent sites are right next to the pavilion, arcade and snack shop which is in the process of being re-built (June 2019). The sites in section D (144-154) are located in the trees and have good shade and also back up to the creek. The cabins looked nice from the outside and were nestled among the RV campers. The sites are a close fit, but all the sites were booked while we were there and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves! Lots of kids on bikes and scooters on the paved road throughout the campground. This campground is so close to other activities as well. We went to Smoky Mountain River Rat and tubed The Little River. Overall, this is a very nice campground with a lot of amenities. Great for families.

Product Review:

I had the opportunity to test the Grub Stick intro kit:

The Grub Stick intro kit includes 1 handle, fork, grubcage, release tool and carrying bag. We only used the grubcage to make s’mores. I don’t like making s’mores because they’re so messy but there was basically no mess using the grubcage. The retractable handle is comfortable and easy to attach. The cage is easy to open and stack food in. It snaps together with a strong grip. The release tool worked perfectly to open the cage. The handle and cage cooled down very quickly and was able to be touched within 30 seconds of taking it out of the fire. This is a product I would recommend!

Ranger Review: E+Ready Emergency Crank Radio by Midland at Clabough’s Campground

Campground Review

This is a family run campground. All the employees we encountered were super nice and accommodating. They have a gas station, convenience store, grill and car wash all right close by the office. There is free BINGO on Friday nights with some nice prizes. The bathrooms were nice, clean and cool and the individual shower setup with locking doors was nice. We had some outlet issues, and the traffic on the nearby road was constant. Between a hot pop up, light and noise pollution sleep was in short supply. The location was convenient to The Island and other attractions in and around Pigeon Forge. The on site lazy river was a great way to cool off and relax.

Product Review

As a Ranger for The Dyrt, I get products to test from time to time. This time I got to try the Midland ER310 Emergency Crank Radio E+Ready. I love this radio! It is light, rechargeable, can be used as a charging station, has a flashlight, and picks up great. It is an emergency crank radio, and can be solar charged, so it is useful and purposeful. We enjoyed listening to music at the lazy river and at the campsite to help plan outdoor activities accordingly. You can check them out at

Calyboughs Campground in Pigeon Forge, Tn

I really enjoyed this campground. It had a-lot of things for the kids including 2 pools, a small lazy river and a bounce pillow. It had a trolley stop in the middle of the campground that would take you to Pigeon Forge or Gatlingurg for 50 cents. The bath house was very clean and had doors rather than curtains which were a big plus. Its a half mile from Pigeon Forge so its easily walked. The only bad thing is that the camp sites are very close together, some literally a few feet from others.
