Great family campground

We stayed at campsite 81 and it had plenty of room for our family of 3 human and 2 K-9's. Very pretty area and the playground close to us was a great benefit. Highly recommend the campground but some spaces are tight and blindside back. Added: The lady running the Rangers station was the absolute nicest person so far at all the State Parks we've been to.


Wasn’t horrible. A bit crowded. Hard to park longer campers and trucks (especially at night) . Survived nasty rain storm. We were on higher ground. Flood warnings. Felt safe with all the rangers driving around.

Great spot!

Great spot! Just Beautiful. Went in off season. But definitely want to come back!

Close together

Site's are close together.   We book a site on the river but they built a sloppy levee that blocks your view of the river.

Great camping at State Park prices

We stayed for a weekend in April and it was great for the price. You can camp right on the lake or above in the woods. The site for rv/tt are a good size. Spaced out pretty good for a state park. There is plenty to do around here from hiking, biking, fishing, large group areas. The rangers were really nice. Bathrooms are clean. Will stay here again

Quiet and relaxing

Check in and out were effortless and efficient. The playground kept our kids entertained almost the entire weekend. They have a swing zip line that everyone was taking turns on. The bounce pad was a blast. When that wasn’t enough to wear out our little ones we headed to the heated pool to enjoy some swimming. Everyone was polite and helpful. The grounds are kept clean and there is even an area to have your dogs off leash. Overall it was a great trip. The sites were a little tight but luckily we had plenty of guidance backing into our spot.

Clean, bear proof encouraged

Walking distance to light hiking. Very clean campgrounds. They even have a small house with running water to clean your kitchen pots and pans etc. There is a water refill station and plenty of bear approved garbage bins. Fishing is open year-round. Rhododendrum‘s bloom In June. We had a great experience!

Absolutely Fantastic RV Campground!

First time staying here and we absolutely love it! The campground is so clean, safe and adorably decorated. The owners have thought of everything. Each site is perfect and has a bbq and campfire ring. Very clean and well maintained. They also have little cabins to rent for those that don’t have a camper or rv. The owners are extremely helpful and friendly. There is firewood, charcoal and ice for purchase. Wonderful laundry and bath facilities. A small store and soon a pool. Would highly recommend. Family friendly. Looking forward to another visit.

My Favorite Smokies Campground !

Best Campground in The Great Smokies National Park! Sites are private, most are very wooded, they have tables, fire rings and usually paved tent pads. The showers are nice and clean and the river runs right through the campground so many sites are next to it and the sound is WONDERFUL!!!!
