Family friendly

Very clean and spacious bathroom/showers, staff great and perfect distance to tourist and Nature destinations

Nice accommodations

Nice pool, right on the river so you can fish. Also adjacent to a massive open field park that’s great for the kids or dogs. Super close to Dollywood.

Great place for kids

Nice campground with a bunch of amenities for the kids. Including a lazy river and pool.

Great shower houses, overcrowded campground.

Being unfamiliar with the area and this chain of campgrounds, I just wish I had done more homework here. Booked a last minute trip in a hurry and “you get what you pay for” didn’t work out with this campground. Other, more secluded sites were dramatically lower, but I blame myself for not learning about the campsite first. The campground is very crowded and loud- I was shocked when we saw it was smack in the middle of an extremely commercial area. Not something I would have thought to check first for camping! Upside was the convenience of the general store for forgotten items and two very nice bath houses. Big downside was how loud it was every night. Just across the river our site sat on were restaurants and a busy road. Our tent site was covered in goose droppings when we arrived and anytime we left we came back to a new mess. It had to be cleaned off daily just to use our site, but maintenance was responsive in assisting with that. The sites are small and very close together, which was new for us. Had a lot of activities to offer campers, but wasn’t our style.

Great location

Small campground with full hookups and cabins. Great location to walk to the streets of Pigeon Fotge

Family Friendly full service

There are lots of activities for the kids. Campsites in the newer sections are very nice and worth the upgrade charges as you are not as crowded. The older part of the park is well maintained and nice, yet was designed and laid out in an era of smaller RV's so it is a little crowded. Bathhouses are very nice and well maintained. We stayed over the Thanksgiving Holiday and the park was full to capacity.

Great staff/Horrible Tent sites

The positive: Great and friendly staff, clean facilities. There was an otter living near our site. Close to park entrance.

The negative: Photos of tent sites along the Little Pigeon River are misleading as can be. Being in Pigeon Forge I knew not to expect complete solitude but this was over the top nonsense. When the noise of the amusement parks and traffic dies down you get about an hour of peace before the food warehouse on the other side (about 50 yds) starts loading trucks non stop through the night. We were awakened every night at 1 am or later to the sounds of tractor trailers backing up. The came the loud bangs of the trucks actually being loaded. We left a night early and drove halfway home because we couldn’t tolerate it any more. Do not stay here ever if you actually like real camping.

October getaway

Love it!

Nice park, great location, pool and grounds!

Great campground, my kids love the bouncy pillow.  Pool is a little small.  Sites are small but efficient in the standard section.  Friendly staff

Beware Tent Camping

On screen, the tent sites look downright idyllic. Bordered by a little creek, ducks visit during the day, the park is very well kept, extremely dog friendly; it seems perfect upon arrival. Then after a long day of hiking, you return to your tent to crash, and get to listen to the sound of air brakes, back up beeping, and bay doors slamming all. night. long. Just on the other side of the cute little creek is a grocery/bakery that has semi trucks coming in and out CONSTANTLY all night. We might as well have set up camp in the receiving bay. We were super disappointed, the site itself was everything we wanted. Sadly, sleep is also important so we won’t be returning.
