Stay-at-home mom to three littles, we love to get out and explore and are eager to share that love with our kiddos.
Spacious and wooded campground/outdoor resort

We stayed here off-season, so it was super quiet and empty, and we could experience all of the amenities that they have to offer, but what we saw if the grounds was wonderful. The sites are nice, and the RV sites have a stone patio, stone firepit, and a composite patio table with patio chairs, which was a lot nicer than the 'rustic' wooden picnic tables we are used to. The resort offers free WiFi and cable. The playground is huge and newer and my kids loved it. The KOA campstore onsite had groceries, cold drinks, camp essentials, and firewood.

Primitive camping in the most beautiful State Park

We have camped here in our tent and my only complaint is that the tent pads are slightly elevated and we have a huge two room tent that would not fit on any of the tent pads. We found a site that didn't have a tent pads and that's where we set up. So of you have a large or abnormally shaped tent you'll need to do some research first to find a tent site that will accommodate your tent. We love how wooded and shaded the sites are. We camped in the middle of a hot sticky Tennessee summer and felt just fine in all of the shade. Right around the corner from the loop of historic Cade's Cove, we were able to explore the loop and all that it offers. We were also close to the gift shop and camp store so the kids could go grab an ice cream cone in the afternoon. We had a a great time here.

If Pottery Barn made a campground...

This is a BEAUTIFUL outdoor resort with five star amenities, truly. We have camped here as a tent camper, and in our camper. The sites are small and close together, but this is still one of my favorite places to camp. You don't feel like you're on top of one another. The grounds are well appointed, landscaped, and maintained. The playground is beautiful and the kids loved it. There is a community firepit with rocking chairs around it, and it looks like it came out of a Martha Stewart magazine. The bathrooms were FABULOUS. SERIOUSLY. I've never wanted to bathe I'm a campground bathroom before, but I do it out of necessity. Well these bathrooms were luxurious and modern and so SO clean. I gladly bathed in the showers here and felt so clean afterwards! Lol. The bathrooms are locked with a pinpad and the codes are given upon check-in so you know random people aren't walking in off of the highway or anything. There is a pool on site, but we stayed in the fall so we didn't get to use it. There are also cabins and yurts available and they look really nice! There is a coffee shop on site also, with a playroom for small kids, and nice comfy chairs to lounge in. The coffee comes from a local artisan coffee roasters up the road and it was so tasty. The owners live onsite and are present and interacting with the campers. They run the office and shop, they checked us in and sold us our firewood. One weekend we were there (Fall) they had a live band for entertainment, on a Saturday evening, and it was awesome. They also had a S'mores bar set up for the kiddos, so that was pretty cool. We spent a lot of time at the community firepit meeting people and having adult beverages. It was wonderful! The campground also offers free WiFi and cable so we hooked up our TV and tailgated (during football season) and had an awesome time.

Family-friendly/tween-friendly outdoor resort

This is a large campground resort that offers cabins, spaces and hookups for RVs and travel trailers, and camping spots for tent camping. We have stayed here in a tent and in a camper so I can give a pretty good review as a camper here. The tent spaces were pretty large and very shaded and wooded. They offer electrical and water, and have a designated firepit and picnic table. We did not feel like we were on top of our neighbors at all, and with all the trees we were able to set up our hammocks easily. When we returned with our camper we still had a very wooded space,(although there are sections for larger RVs that are typical RV park spots that don't have much room or trees.) Our spot was on the river towards the back of the campground and felt secluded and was very shadedand and awesome. We were a little far from the pool, but still within walking distance, it was ok. The kids had room to play and explore and we were close to the playground, where many kids were playing, so my kids had a great time. The campground offers events on weekends, like pool parties and water balloon fights and scavenger hunts, and there is a gameroom on grounds for older kids. The pool is huge and there is a mountain waterslide and inflatables for the kids(and some grownups too) to enjoy. We loved camping here and felt that it was great for kids and tweens and teens. Probably not the best place if you want a quiet getaway though, lol. Also restrooms were okay, not the worst but not the best.
