Lots of Amenities and Close to the Smoky Mountains National Park

We loved this campground! Very nice and spacious sites. The campground was developed along the Little River and is absolutely gorgeous! The bathhouses are the nicest I have ever seen. The sites were level and had full hook-ups. They are renovating the pool and it looks like it will be amazing. It…

One of the best campground in Pigeon Forge

The staffs works around the clocks even after hours keeping the campground clean. They constant clean bathrooms and showers and stopping by to make sure all is good and a friendly chat. The staffs are knowledgeable of the area and provided great tips and hidden gems to check out.

A little hard to find.

The coordinates on here will lead you to the middle of the road, however, if you keep driving, right before you hit the state park, you will see a campground to your left that is free free free. It overlooks some hills and is relatively level. Decent cell coverage if you need to work. Overall,…

Great access to GSMNP

Nice park with amenities close to the NP. Grounds were well kept, staff was super friendly, good laundry room. Pool and plenty of room to walk dogs. 

A good (and affordable) park near the Smokies, spaces are big rig friendly.

Great little spot

We were just passing through and it was the perfect spot to stay the night. We called that afternoon and they had a site for us, the gentleman who welcomed us was so kind and friendly. It’s just off the highway, close to gas and coffee, yet it felt like we were way out in the middle of nowhere.…

Great place right on the river but no Verizon coverage

Great place. Beautiful views on the river. Very clean. Large sites with really nice patios. Only problem is no and I mean zero Verizon cell coverage. Internet it’s OK to stream movies but I had to go to their coffee house for reliable WiFi when I was working.

Amazing location in the Smokies

We stayed for a week on an RV back in site. The sites can be soemwhat close together, but with this mostly just being home base, we didn’t find it to be a problem. Our oldest rented a bell tent, and when I say they are the cutest camping spot, I am not exaggerating. The bell tents sit on the river…

Lots for kids to do

Our back in site was very difficult to get into. We also noticed another campers were parking, they also had issues getting into their back in sites.
There are many things for children to do at this campground. Trolley also pick up right at the main entrance of the campground.

Beautiful clean park

We stayed here overnight just as a stopping point on our trip, but we were pleasantly surprised! Nice pool, very clean park, lots of things for the kids. They have activities on the weekends. We stayed in a pull through site and it was not very level (we had planned to not even unhook from the…

Good campsite

Campsites are nice but electric hookups only at certain sites. Its a national campground so its beautiful with nice bathouses but not much activities other than hiking. There are a limited amount of sites that would accommodate a large RV, mostly tent sites. It is first come first serve with no…

Great State park

Awesome campground! Great trails, campsites are big with fire rings and grills, and bathhouses are kept clean. Watch for copperheads!!! There are lots at this park. Watch your step not only on the trails, but everywhere you go! We found one under our trashcan
