We have been coming to Up the Creek shortly after they opened. This campground is a short drive off the main strip in Pigeon Forge which makes for some peacefulness while camping. We love the fact that there is trees between campers so it doesn’t feel like your camping on top one another. There are clean a lovey creeks around the campground that makes it nice to camp by or kids play in. The shade helps with cooling in the summer, and makes it nice to sit outside. They have grown and now have some new larger campsites, and there is a dog area that is fenced in. This is a very clean campground and the pigeon forge trolley comes around every so often for guest. They don’t have a bathhouse yet, playground, but they do have full hook ups, cable, WiFi and super friendly staff. If you wanna be away from traffic give this campground a try.
We discovered this park summer of 2018 and went back 4 times. This park is geographically in the middle of no where and squeezed in between two states (hence interstate park). Even though it’s in God’s country it’s worth the drive. It’s a quaint park with amazing and friendly staff who pride their jobs and park. It had full hookups for RVs and decent campsite for tents. Bathhouses are clean, the campground is quite and restaurant is clean. There is a small water park for families, nice trails, play grounds, shelters, basketball court, small lake and access to some of the best views in Appalachia. This truly is a hidden gem if you can get past the road to get there. But on a side note for that- they are building a new road to access the park and hopefully it’ll be done soon.
