A great place to stay! One of the nicest campgrounds in the area. Sites are a little tight with no buffer between. Creek side sites are the better sites. Inner sites are mostly open with few trees. Sites are gravel and almost all are level. We had no issue with the roads while towing a 30 foot TT. Park is clean and well kept. Staff friendly and helpful. WiFi is good, a little slow at times, AT&T/4G cell service is good, Cable has about 70 channels, 50 amp service and good water pressure. They honor Good Sam and Passport America. Location is great to explore the area. If you have never seen elk before, worth the ride to see them. Office has directions. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice campground, but the sites are a little bit close to each other. Friendly staff. Just passing through so only an overnight stay, but we will stay here again and see the area some time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice campground in a pretty setting. The sites along the creek are the nicest. The roads in the park are tight as cars and truck park along the road, so access can be a problem but the sites themselves are big enough. The staff is friendly and the park is clean. We look forward to returning. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park located near Waynesville. Site are a bit tight, but the staff helps you get located. We had a stream side site and it was very nice. Gravel and pretty level. Staff very helpful. Restrooms and showers are among the nicest I have seen. Each shower is in its separate room. Very clean. Nice place to stay as a base for touring the area. Nice pet run area very clean park. We would stay here again We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park in the mountains. The individual full baths are among the nicest I've seen. Cable TV was fine, Wi-Fi was intermittent on a day when the park was virtually full. Sites are gravel with a fair amount of grass in between. Our site was a bit unlevel, but manageable. Roadways are quite narrow and with tow and towed vehicles parked along the road maneuvering to and from sites is problematic when park is full. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We paid $20 (half of $40) for three nights because of Passport America then the 4th night 10% off for $36. At the second last of the stay the manager rode by and stopped by to talk. I told him I was thinking of staying for another 4 nights; he said he would do Passport America for $20 for 3 nights the 4th at 10% off. Now the campground was clean, quiet, and everyone was friendly staff and everyone in the campground. The washroom/showers were clean and nice. Free coffee and pastries Saturday morning was also a nice touch. I would stay here again! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park was conveniently right off highway. The cable and Wi-Fi were great. The restrooms could of been cleaner. The very nice young lady in the office was a great help to my wife who is in a wheelchair. That was very much appreciated. Now what I found to be wrong, The older gentleman who checked us in took 30 minutes trying to do his job when he finally took us to our site his attitude took over. I have driven a large RV for years. I had a hard time understanding his directions. I was then informed I did not know what i was doing. Incidentally, that same day another victim of his scratched his RV due to his direction. Otherwise, I would return to this park - one bad apple doesn't ruin it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here three nights while attending a family anniversary and enjoyed it enough to return in future for vacation. Excellent location for good restaurants and shopping, as well as touring Great Smokey NP. Rate shown was discounted by Good Sam ten percent. Creek sites are quiet and very scenic, well worth paying for, if you don't need a pull-thru. Fire pits are available for rent. We had a good wifi signal at our site and cable, Nice staff, nice camaraderie among the RVers even if you aren't there for the season. Enjoyed the coffee and sweet rolls Saturday morning. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a beautiful park!! We were at a park in Asheville and moved after 1 night. This park has spacious sites, clean showers, and nice laundry. You can sit and watched the peaceful stream. Staff could of been friendlier. The only problem I had was with the office guy. He wasn't the fastest I ever seen, but his lousy attitude ruined it. Otherwise, its not the park fault they need to get friendlier work kampers. We will definitely stay again when we arrive back here in October. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of the nicest parks we have stayed in since we started this trip five months ago. That said, I did not understand their billing procedure, and thus, did not get my discount, so paid top dollar, $42 plus, for six night stay, which would have given me the seventh free, but had to move on. Would have done better to take the discount on the six days. My bad, not the campground. Nice folks here, and the camp is situated on a small, but lovely stream that we're told is trout stocked. (Get a fishing license if you intend to wet a line, the game warden checks here). The sites are well kept gravel and level, with picnic tables at each site. Strong 50 amp and water pressure. Grounds well kept and mowed. Pancake and sweet-roll breakfast on Saturday mornings, and entertainment Saturday night. (Good pancakes, and the band was good as well). GPS will try to take you the wrong direction, unless it is a TomTom. If you are going east on I-40, when you come off the exit, turn right at the bottom of the off ramp . . . your GPS will tell you to make a u-turn. Don't! The campground is on your left about a mile down the road toward Waynesville. Great place to spend a few days or the summer. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a pleasant surprise. Stayed here because it is Passport America CG, but very nice. Friendly staff and well taken care of park. Pancake breakfast in the morning was nice touch. Think that we will stay here again when visiting Smoky Mts. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate cited reflects Passport America discount. This park was a pleasant surprise. It was immaculate with very friendly folks taking care of it. The sites are all gravel and level. FHU, cable, and Wi-Fi. Lots of grass. A beautiful stream running behind the park. All in the NC mountains with gorgeous views. Close to restaurants and shopping. We stopped for one night, but will come back for more. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We returned to this campground because it is just off I-40 at Exit 20 with easy on/off access for an overnight stay. Sites are level and facilities are clean. We arrived after office hours so we found a place and put our money in the drop box with no hassle. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed five nights at this park. The electrical, Wi-Fi, water, and sewer worked. The sites and roads are gravel but well maintained. The employees were polite and friendly. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great folks. Wonderful weather and temps. Lots to see and do in the area. The campground is extremely well maintained. The sites have lots of grass. The creek that flows through the park is very soothing and settling. We will definitely return here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Expectations may have been too high given the many rave reviews, but we found the facility had some downsides. First, it really seems quite crowded. The sites are rather close together. Moreover, tow vehicles park in front of the RVs. Some don't get in as close as they could, making the roadways a bit narrow at times. All those trucks, cars, cycles, etc. out front contribute to a sense of clutter. Finally, despite the claim of Wi-Fi, the signal at our site was so weak as to be unusable 90% of the time. I had to go to the laundry/shower area to get acceptable signal strength, and even then the bandwidth was pretty marginal. Picky stuff, perhaps, but for the price I had expected first class. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here several times in the past. Very clean park with nice folks running it. This is mostly an adult park since there are no activities for young children. There is, however, bingo a few nights a week as well as entertainment (usually country/bluegrass) on Friday evenings. They keep this place very clean and the "visitors" here respect that. If you are bringing children, you will have to travel outside the park to locations in an around Maggie Valley which is an easy drive from the campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park 1 mile off I-40, but little road noise. Friendly and helpful office staff. There is no escort to site but they are plainly marked. Water pressure and quality good. Smooth gravel roads and level sites with crushed stone picnic pads. No fires allowed at the site but a nice communal fire pit area. Very nice and clean bathrooms. Would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice little park. Our site was right on a beautiful creek. Sites are small but this was not an issue since there were very few campers at this time of year. Very clean, well kept with friendly staff. VERY quiet, which we liked and has beautiful surroundings. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice clean little park. Level sites but kind of tight. All utilities good and includes cable TV. Not busy this time of year so the campground itself was quiet. The constant loud sound of the logging operation across the road and/or trucks from the wood chipping behind, kind of drove me crazy however, starting at 6 AM every day but Sunday. If it weren't for that noise I would rate this higher. Price is Passport America. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Extremely well kept small campground. Very clean private bathrooms, activities for adults, and overall a great base for exploring Maggie Valley and the surrounding area. Not geared for kids, bit we were made to feel welcome. Only reason not a 10 is smallish sites and no fire rings. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here only one night on our way to Branson, MO. Excellent overnight stay. Very friendly staff. Had everything we needed. Close enough to interstate 40 to be convenient but far enough to not be bothered with highway noise. Would stay here again, hopefully longer the next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great place to stay when touring western North Carolina. Though it is a bit crowded if you get a stream site you have plenty of room in addition to a fast running stream to fall asleep to. Reservations and check in was a pleasure ... they actually informed me they were a Passport CG and offered the $17.50 nightly fee. Sites and road are level with crushed rock throughout. There is a lack of landscaping for the non-Creek side sites but otherwise very pleasant and helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our rate is based on the weekly plus PA (3 nights). The park is right off I-40, easy access. There is some road noise, not from I-40, but from the road in front of the CG, logging trucks entering a lumber facility across the street. You can hear the mill, but both trucks and mill are daytime only. Check in is friendly and efficient, and since most sites are back ins, if you are a MH towing, unhook at check in. The back in sites are 90 degree from a narrow road, but the CG staff is very good at guiding you in. The site size is good, not overly spacious, but more than adequate. Creek side sites are more costly, they are beautiful. If you don't want to pay extra, you can access the creek area via a footbridge. The staff and guests are very friendly. There is entertainment (about once a week), Saturday breakfast, and bingo/cards. There is no pool or playground so the crowd is on the older side, but we did see some kids. The cable and Wi-Fi worked perfectly. The owners/staff keep the CG well manicured. We will definitely return, the location is great and the CG is lovely. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Interstate 40, Exit 20, south 1 mile, park is on the left. This is a motorhome and fifth wheel haven. Quite a few smaller campers but mostly large rigs. Very clean and well maintained park. Friendly and helpful owner and staff. Sites are gravel with a picnic table. Sites are close together in some areas but not too tight. Interior roads are not difficult to navigate. Sites are not deep enough to park a tow vehicle straight in. All vehicles are parked parallel to the site. This is a pretty park and everyone seemed very friendly. The park is not rustic but it’s not a concrete and asphalt park either. Free Wi-Fi. AT&T had a decent connection. We would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park. Rate is for a month. Very clean. Everyone is very friendly. Shady over by the dog walk. Fairly close to Asheville and very close to Waynesville and Maggie Valley. Road noise is sometimes a little loud due to trucks. Will definitely be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice Campground, specially at the Passport America Rate of $17.50 per night. Very clean and neat, well cared for. Spaces nearly all back in, had a gal from the office guide us to our space and then direct our backing in. Don't usually let a stranger park me but she did and absolutely amazing job! And that was good since the back in spaces are all a little on the tight side. Watched her squeeze in a 44 foot Prevost next to our rig and she did another amazing job. The campground fronts on a creek with some back in sites adjacent to the creek available for a few $'s extra. All in all a very nice park. Definitely would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our 3rd visit here. We were on site 30 which has it's pros and cons. It's an easy site to pull through and it's close to the bath house. All the traffic going to and from the bath house walks by this site, which is right on the road. They had live country music Friday night, really cool. Some sites are close, but acceptable. It is very clean. Very few kids were here. The sites along the stream are beautiful, though might be tight to back into. Coffee and pastries are served in the morning it the club house. Sites were level, for the most part. Water pressure good. Cable TV was nice to have. The Wi-Fi dropped us a few times. People were friendly. Bingo on Saturday night. Great place to base camp for touring the area, Maggie Valley, etc. Definitely a CG to return to. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the cleanest, well kept RV Park we have ever visited. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. They escorted us to our site and stopped by regularly to visit and check to see if we need anything. On Saturday morning the staff cooked and served a pancake breakfast to the campers. We accidently locked ourselves out of our motorhome and the Manager was very helpful in getting a locksmith to our site. This park has a dedicated pet walk with pet waste disposal cans, which we really appreciated. We will definitely return to this RV park again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy access off I-40 was a plus. Clean grounds with good views of mountains. Friendly and helpful staff. Enjoyed our stay and will stay here again if we are in the area. We enjoyed using our Passport America rate at such a nice campground. We camped here in a 35-foot rig, and found access to be easy and spacious. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here a week. While it is listed as "Big Rig Friendly" I didn't feel as though it was. The sites are short: just long enough for our 40ft MH. We were suppose to park our tow in front of our MH, but not on the grass. Well that's hard to do with a full size pickup. I thought the sites were too close together not spaced very well. There were a few pull through sites but not many. With all the other campgrounds in the area we will not be camping at this one again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wow!! I wouldn't mind living here full time! The mountains surrounding the campground were amazing! This is a picture postcard site! Mallard ducks in a babbling stream that runs the length of the park. The bathrooms were pine paneled extravaganzas. The heat was up, the restrooms and showers were like new. You could eat off the grass. Not a speck of anything on the ground. Grass and gravel that looked like a well manicured golf course. I was impressed. The staff was polite. Across the street was a skydiving rig and nearby a ski resort. I'd come here just to camp and fish on a weekend. This is in the foothills of the Smokey Mountains on Rt. 40, exit 20. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great campground. Stayed a week and everything was great. Every employee was friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make you feel welcome. The office has preprinted directions to grocery stores and other places, and willing to give verbal directions and recommendations. Park was busy with rigs coming in and out but never felt too crowded. Restrooms were spotless. Sites well kept and everything worked great. Great cable TV selection. We will stay again next year for sure. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This CG is simply put: a great CG. Clean, well laid out, friendly staff, etc. This was our second stay this year. Pull through this time, back into the creek last time. I noted a couple of lower ratings based upon not being "family friendly". If you need a baby sitter for your kids (or yourself) read the description of the CG. Don't give it a bad rating just because it doesn't have what you think it should, but never said it did. Yogi Bear awaits you with open arms. Judge it for what it is. It is located very near I-40 and plenty of shopping, etc. We don't miss the kids flying through the CG on bikes, screaming in the pool, etc. Maybe we aren't family friendly. The only knock we have is that the Wi-Fi was spotty. Cable TV was great. We will be back, soon. Don't miss this place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We chose this park based primarily on reviews contained on this site. It lived up to our expectation having received numerous tens and nines from other reviewers. We did not have the grandchildren with us thus no need for pools, playgrounds or loud bands and thus found the park rather inviting. This was our fist stay however many of the other campers were returning from previous years which is always a good sign. I found the bath/shower facilities way above the norm. Personally I believe many of us tend to over compliment the campgrounds that do a very good job with the facilities they have at their disposal. But given the value and friendliness of the staff you can round my 9 plus up if desired. I will stay at Creekwood Farm again if our plans put us on that side of Asheville. There is another campground very near that also receives fairly good ratings. We did a walk though and thought for our needs and age we had chosen the right campground to stay at. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place is nice. Very peaceful and awesome sites on the water. Had the kids and the dog out there walking in the creek. NOT A KID FRIENDLY PARK!! The only thing for kids to do here is play in the creek, but for my boys that was enough. Majority of the RVers are older adults, but very friendly. You need to clean up after your dogs. I have a dog, but I clean up after him every time. Good location to see some waterfalls. Cleanest bathrooms I have ever seen at a campground in my life. Overall, it's not really a campground for under the age of 60. We probably will not return, but it is nice. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
First, the rate reflects a monthly rate of $600. We stayed here for 2 months. It gets really crowded here and the biggest problem is the parking. You have to park your car/truck in front of your camper and it sticks out into the street. A lot of people had to move their cars to allow for others to back into their site. The next big problem is the internet. There is a "house" size router and only 15 people at a time can use the internet. With 125 sites you can see the problems that arise. Its not good at all. Also, although the bathrooms are very nice, there is not air or ventilation in them at all. You can't breath in there in the summer. And finally: the club house is the size of a living room in a house. No activities at all except a small weekend band. Last, this the most expensive park in the Maggie Valley area. If you don't mind the things I mentioned: Have at it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
What a delightful place. It is quiet, comfortable and very pleasant to while away the cooler summer days. We sat on the creek bankside, feet in the water reading with the only noise being the rippling water. Staff was very nice. Facilities are nice; has shaded spots available, but for the roof satellite folks, there are enough open areas too. We checked out a lot of the other camps, and this won hands down. Just don't you'all pack this place out, leaving me no room to visit again. We are coming back next summer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great place: it's clean, quiet, and has friendly people. Located in a beautiful area. We had a creek site and it was really nice sitting by the stream, hearing it running. We love it here. We made reservations to return in September for a week. Large easy access to the sites, lots of room between sites. Nice patio area with table. Grass is cut neatly, flowers planted. Clubhouse and laundry area is clean and accessable from all campsites. Bath rooms are the cleanest I've seen. You won't be sorry you came here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground is clean, generally level, with gravel sites. Facilities are nice. Seems to be generally adult campers. Park staff are very helpful and the area is just gorgeous. Creek side sites are very tight (shallow) for large rigs. Backing in and pulling out can be problematic due to "on street" parking of tow vehicles and cars. Next time here, we will request an inner site where the roads are a little wider and the sites a little larger. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good gravel level sites. Can accommodate any size unit. Picturesque stream runs alongside some of the sites and are very shady. If you don't get creekside, chances are you will not have much shade but if that is not an issue with you then this is a great campground. It appears to be mostly adults which suits us just fine and makes for a very pleasant, quiet stay. Will we return? "You bet'cha." We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a very nice, quiet campground. It was kept very clean and neat. The landscaping around various items (poles, etc) was a nice added touch. Children were allowed but there was no playground for them to use. The restrooms were very clean each night when we went to take our showers. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a wonderful park, large spaces and a stream running through the back of the park. The staff was more than friendly, led us to our space and came back later to help us with the WiFi. We have stayed here before and will be coming back again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We are backed into a large space with a fast flowing creek behind us. Electric is solid. Wi-fi is strong. Campground is clean and neat. When we checked in, they were very pleasant and led us to our site, and helped us as we backed in (our first back in, ergo nerves) and hooked up. An hour or so later they came back to make sure everything was OK. There are only a few permanents (manager excluded). The only negative thing we have to say is that we only planned 5 days here. Next time, it will be at least one, if not two, weeks. Even if you can only squeeze in a day or two, put this campground on your list. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We couldn't have been more thrilled with this Park. The management went out of their way to ensure that our stay was a pleasant and unique experience that took advantage of the local attractions. The private showers and toilets were warm and clean, as was the meeting room and laundry. All facilities and amenities were of an exceptional standard. Sites were level and easy to access. Wish we could have taken this Park and staff with us on the remainder of our trip. Highly recommended. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice enough campground located in Maggie Valley, NC. The amenities were fine and the park was clean, but this campground really did not offer much in personality. It was right off the main road which was convenient but lacked in rustic and natural beauty of other campgrounds we had been to. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park. We were escorted to our site. The site was level and easy to back into. There were some that might be a bit of a challenge to back into because vehicles must park along the road in front of their sites. The bathrooms were very clean. The park personnel were friendly and helpful. They had coffee and donuts Saturday morning, bingo Friday night. There are many campgrounds in the area, but this is one of the better ones. We will stay here again when we are in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an attractive and well-maintained campground, and the only problem we had was the over-zealous bathroom cleaning crews. They wait impatiently and obtrusively (some of them rudely) while customers use the bathrooms in the morning. The owner-managers should tell these employees to back off and preferably do their chores at a more appropriate time of day. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an excellent park. The laundry facilities and bath house were some of the cleanest we have seen. Wide sites, level, and clean and neat. We camped on the creek, and it was wonderful. The staff was nice, friendly and very helpful. We would recommend this park to anyone camping. You won't find anything in the area any better. We shopped around before we decided on this campground. We joined and used our Passport America at this campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our first time at this campground but it was recommended by friends who stay here regularly. Stayed 8 nights: loved our creekside site. Yes, this cost more than the sites not on the creek. Well graveled sites throughout with full hook-ups, including cable TV. Free Wi-Fi from the site. Some sites are shaded and some are in the open. Very clean campground and well maintained. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The individual bathrooms with private showers are beautifully maintained. Small recreation hall with laundry facility. Very convenient to I-40 with Ashville to the east and Sieverville, Tennessee 75 miles west. Best of all is being in the Smokies with Maggie Valley down the road. This is a quiet campground without a pool or playground: probably limits the number of children here. None here during our stay. We enjoyed our stay very much: will return and will recommend. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have used this campground for several years and have found it to be one of the best maintained campgrounds we use. The staff is friendly and helpful. While some of the interior sites are somewhat tight for a big rig the staff is very competent at directing you in. Nice creek with ducks along one side. We will stay here again. Manager runs a very efficient campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had reservations to stay here for two nights. My wife made the reservations over the phone around five hours prior to our arrival and discussed several items on the phone with the campground representative: price, discounts, type of site, even the representative's name! When we arrived, a large group of motorhomes was checking in and we were told that we did NOT have a reservation and the woman at the desk even said, "Your wife did not call us!!" At that point we left and went next door to another campground that had some vacancies. In order to do that; however, we had to drive our 40 foot motorhome through this campground. The interior roads and sites are very narrow and almost every site had a car parallel parked in front-- making entering/exiting these sites in a big rig next to impossible. Upon seeing the tight quarters I was happy that they had botched our reservation and that they were so arrogant as to call my wife a liar (I heard her reservation request on speaker phone while we were driving toward the campground). This campground obviously has some serious management issues and is certainly not the place to stay in anything approaching the size of a big rig. We echo the other reviewer who stated: I WOULD NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN! We did not stay in this park! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed a week and I have mixed feelings about this location. The roads are narrow and its a problem backing into sites because of vehicles parked across the street. No parking on the grass and must park sideways in front of your unit to get off the road. The wireless was useless for me as it always said low signal and would not connect. The dial-up in the community building showed no connection. I had to drive to Maggie Valley to a cafe to get on-line. No pool was disappointing. The manager and staff are hard working and very helpful. There was entertainment some nights and a nice breakfast on weekend. The cable TV choices was very large. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I WILL NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN!!! We thought we had found a nice, peaceful place to stay! Yesterday they came around weed-eating the grounds and basically told my friends to move off of their 'porch' and take their child inside so they could cut the grass on their campsite! HOW RUDE! That's like a maid telling you to get to of the bed so they can clean your room and change the sheets! Or a waitress telling you to get up from your meal so she can sweep under the table! To make matters worse, when my friend told the manager he told her it would be "prudent" of her to move her child when they were cutting grass! The nerve! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Outstanding. We selected a premium site along the creek which I recommend. Staff was friendly and welcoming. Park was spotless and sites were excellent. Private restrooms with showers were very clean. Ice on site as were laundry facilities. Beautiful setting in the mountains and Waynesville is a must to visit. Stayed 2 nights in Winnebago View. Other campers very friendly. Highly recommend. Thanks to the wonderful staff. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were assigned spot 66, beneath a large Sycamore tree by the stream--very pretty. Folks very friendly on staff. Our campsite was infested with thousands of tiny bugs. We did not notice them until the next morning. Over the next few days they made their way into the interior of our camper and it has been a real mess to clean up. The campground is convenient to interstate 40, quiet and picturesque. Don't stay in spot 66. The campsite next to ours had bugs as well. I don't know about any of the others. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 9 / 10 ]
Wow - what a beautifully maintained park and at a Passport America rate! At arrival we were checked in by very professional staff and led to our site. The level, gravel sites have a patio area, table, and manicured grass with some shade. Sites are not huge but are large enough to extend slides and awning without feeling cramped. The free cable TV was excellent, and although the park has no Wi-Fi, Verizon cell and AirCard service was very good. The park is surrounded by hills and forest and is quiet and dark at night. Disneyland could take landscaping lessons from these people - a great stay and we'll definitely visit again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a really nice park. The restrooms are private and great if you have winterized. This was our second stay here and we just stopped over on the way to Myrtle Beach. The last time we came we spent a few days skiing at Maggie Valley. Easy in and out from I- 40. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here over the Memorial Day weekend. The staff were very friendly and noted all the details at the park upon check-in. We were escorted to our site by one of the staff members and were guided as we backed our camper into the site. We had a river site which was spacious, shaded and fairly level. It was definitely a treat to be able to walk out the door and to the river, no woods, bushes etc in your way. The bathrooms here are one of the best kept we have ever seen. Attention to detail was the key here in our opinion. We would have given this park a '10' rating but there were no firepits on any of the sites although we did notice you could rent one from the office. We always ask about firepits and if fires are allowed so we were prepared as we brought our own. They offer free Wi-Fi and the reception at our site was good. We would definitely camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was our final stop on our way home. We stayed for 2 nights. The park personnel were friendly. Escorted to our site and was guided when parking the rig. The roads and sites were gravel, but fairly level. We had a pull through and parked the truck parallel to the road. There are back in sites along the stream; very nice, but kind of close. Even though it was a Holiday weekend, there were empty sites, which made our site seem bigger. A few permanent or seasonal campers were way in the back of the park. They had pancakes & pastries on the morning. Saturday night there was a live band, I guess due to the Holiday. Water pressure was adequate. Campground is very clean. Long dog walk on the edge of the property. Beautiful area. Great place to set up base to tour the area. Heard no road noise when inside, outside an occasional noise from US-276. Even with a dozen campgrounds in the area, we would come back here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a wonderfully clean and attractive park. The staff was excellent. They were very capable and very friendly. The bathrooms were the cleanest and nicest we have ever seen in our 2 years of full timing. All facilities were excellent. I give it a 9 rating only based on sites being a bit close together but no closer together than any other RV park in the area. I highly recommend this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have been on the road full time for 2 years, and this park rates in the top 1% of parks we've stayed in. It is by far the top Passport America Campground we've stayed in. They advertise the cleanest restrooms/showers you will see and they are right. It is very quiet at night and beautiful next to the stream that runs along the border of the campground. This is a definite stop if you are coming through this area of the Great Smoky Mtns ... and the price is right if you are a Passport America member. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I agree with the other posting: this is the best Passport America park we have ever stayed in (discount good only two nights). Facilities were immaculate. Back in sites with gravel pads on and off river. Wi-Fi was great. River has fish in it. Convenient to highway, but far enough away to be quiet. We would definitely come back to this one. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Only stopped in for 1 night, but will definitely be back. Stayed right on the creek. Trout fishing should be great when we come back. Closed for winter, so it had just opened back up. Cabins available. Club-house, with Bingo and weekly activities going on. Live entertainment outside by a big fire once it warms up some. Office looks like a log cabin and has well-stocked store inside. This place rates high on our list of visiting again. Located only 1 mile off Hwy I-40. Pleasant camping experience. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
An excellent park, with some sites by a fast-rushing stream and others around an old barn with a silo. The bathrooms are a 10, with individual rooms each containing a fiberglass shower, a sink vanity and toilet, as well as an overhead vent/fan and another, separate fan and individual heat controls. Super. The rec hall has a book exchange, a stove, a TV, tables and comfy furniture. The wi-fi was fast. There is a little road noise from I-40 and the US highway, as well as some from the wood processing plant across the highway, but it wasn't very loud. It's convenient to the Smokies. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park. We only stayed one night but would have stayed more if time allowed. Very well manicured gravel sites with healthy grass between. Picnic tables at each site. The riverfront sites are more expensive but probably worth the few extra dollars when the stream is flowing and making nice noise. Easy access to I-40 but no freeway noise to speak of. Great access to east side of Smokies -- go see the elk! We'd return in a heartbeat. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here during snowing conditions and this place felt like an oasis. They were the only campground in the area to have heated restrooms open and they were of the nicest kind. We came there when the office was already closed. We could just pick a spot and the owner checked on us later to ask if we needed anything. The wifi worked flawless over there. We would definitely stay here again but at the nicer Passport America rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
On the positive side, this campground is clean, clean, clean. Also, the office camp workers are friendly and very helpful. My big issue with the manager is this -- we stayed here long term for two years and paid over $10,000, yet we were frequently told how the campground was "losing money on us" even when all the sites were not sold out. I spoke to several other long-term campers and they too will not be returning because of this same treatment. However, if you stay here for a short while and pay full price, you will be treated royally and wonder what this post is all about. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
An outstanding campground. Sites are a little close but the beauty of the stream and the peace and quite make up for any shortcomings.The campground is very well kept and the showers are among the cleanest we have encountered. Very nice staff. We enjoyed the entertainment. We look forward to staying again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a nice campground, but sites are very small. We stayed in a creek side site, and our picnic table was literally up against our neighbor's sewer hook-up. They also don't allow dogs to wade in the creek, which disappointed ours. The roads are gravel, and the campground is centrally located. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We love this campground. It is right on Jonathan Creek with lots of beautiful ducks. This is our second time to be here from Fort Walton Beach, Florida and we will return as often as possible. The ladies in the office are wonderful. The bathrooms and showers very, very clean. The laundry room well kept with good working machines. There is a meeting room here, and they have scheduled events at the Recreation Hall, i.e. bingo, etc. We like a site right on the creek even if they do cost a little more - well worth it. We will return! (800) 862-8110 We camped here in a Truck Camper.
This could be a wonderful campground, but it is not. The pros: Campground is in a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains, and is on a very relaxing bubbling stream. The staff is almost entirely composed of elderly women who are absolute angels. Cons: The most desirable sites in the campground are on the creek, but these sites are so short that our motorhome was literally hanging over the creek and there was almost no room to park our car. Yet these sites are almost all out of the range of the one wi-fi antenna. This park has one small antenna in the middle of its 12-acres, and the signal is good only for about one-third of the sites (the owner-manager says "if you want wi-fi, drive over to the base of the tower." The park is jammed up like few we have seen before. Bumper to bumper, side to side, and very tight with difficult parking. All facilities are miles and miles away. In short, the park could be a wonderful place but it is not, primarily due to the pig-headed attitude of the manager. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for four nights. All of the staff we met were very friendly. The park is very well maintained. Every site was filled while we were there. The majority of the campers were seasonal (many from Carolinas and Florida) with extended stays. The restrooms and showers were spotless. They are actually a private room, very spacious. An activities room is available and planned activites were scheduled most nights. You can watch the creek flow over rocks in two access points and several sites backup to the creek. If you are retired or don't mind mingling with older folks, this would be a great place to stay. It is close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Great Smokey Mountain National Park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice park in a good location. Warning that is town does not have a near by grocery and you can not buy beer in this town. Come prepared as it is a bit of a drive to "Ingles" on exit 31. The sites are nice and level, good hook ups. Wifi is a bit slow but that may depend on your site location. Nice steam that would be worth the extra money to stay on unlike some other campgrounds that boast "waterfront". Good breakfast and singer on Saturdays. The dog walk is a bit small and you are restricted to this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Superior camp ground experience. Great Bingo, and campfire during the week and social breakfast on Saturday. Each Saturday great country music in the rec-room. All sites clean and weed free. Picnic tables on nice gravel beside your parking spot. Very helpful with things to see in area, these folks that work here work real hard to make it great. Creek beautiful and good fishing. Stayed a month. Would return, again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped next to the creek, it was clean and beautiful. The sites are spacious, the largest I have ever seen and easy to back into.All utilities were excellent. All sites had gravel and grass, ( no mud to be seen anywhere) even after a morning shower. The park staff was very friendly. The only problem; some jerk 4 sites down thought everyone loved to here his Harley idle as much as he did. The only improvement this campground should make is require all motorcycles to park at the entrance and not allow them into the campground. We camped in Myrtle Beach during motorcycle weekend, the campground we stayed at had the above requirement and we didn't hear a Harley all weekend. It was wonderful. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Creekwood Farm RV Park with its large sites and great hosts made our stay very enjoyable. We were guided into our site by one of the host even helping to line us up with the hookups. The mountain stream, that was just a few steps from our site, was an added draw to the beauty of the mountainous setting. We will be back for another visit. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have a seasonal site on the creek at this campground. The park is well maintained and the large bathrooms are spotless. The park manager and staff are very helpful; in fact, one of the staff came to our unit to try to help me get better WIFI reception. We had a seasonal site here last year (2007) and enjoyed every minute. We have stayed in other nearby campgrounds and were not as satisfied as at Creekwood Farms RV Park. The only improvement would be to expand their WIFI capability. The staff does not go overboard with rules and the ones that they do have are typical of most campgrounds and are for the enjoyment of all camping there. The ratio of seasonal to other campers is good with only about 10-15% as seasonal. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A truly outstanding RV Park. Meticulously maintained by people who take pride in it. Great, level, wide sites, many right on a bold creek. This is one of the best and we highly recommend it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staying here ruined my long anticipated trip to see the leaves change in the Smokey Mountains. Creekwood Farm employs a manager who is agressive, offensive, overbearing, and downright unfriendly to his guests. He acts like the park is his own little 3rd Reich. I was verbally assauted in the office when I dared to inform him that there was no water at the outlet of my site due to the cold weather. Instead of offering to help, he informed me in a loud rude and agressive manner that it was freezing weather and that my hose was probably frozen. I told him that I'd removed the hose and that wasn't the problem. I was just trying to be helpful, and he jumped all over me. He told me that I should switch to the built in water in my coach until the weather improves. I told him that I'd already done that, and that although I may look stupid, that I wasn't a complete idiot. The next morning it was frozen again, and I was removing the hose from the faucet. He came driving across the park in his golf cart yelling at the top of his voice, "Don't touch that lever! Don't touch that lever!" At this point I'd had enough. I told him that he needed to learn to treat his guests nicer, and that if he didn't he wouldn't have any guests! If they didn't have a policy of "NO REFUNDS!" proudly displayed behind the office desk, I would have pulled out that day and never returned. Aside from the manager's attitude toward his guests, the park is actually pretty nice. If you go beware the park manager and hope you don't need any help at your site! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
First off, the staff was very friendly, best around. A little too much by the book though. People were leaving everywhere on Sunday, we asked if we could leave the RV for 2 extra hours to go back into town (Last weekend of the year , end of Oct.) and they said I would have to pay 17.00 for 3 hours. BUT they gave suggestions on parking at K-Mart parking lot. Anyway, the cleanest restrooms available. Very, very nice people there, stream was great! Just a litlle closer than I normally like. Over all I liked it and would suggest it to others as long as they knew that. On a side note, it was right next to Pride Resort and I am glad I did not stay there. The pictures on the webite are nothing like the actual campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is first time to stay here, but we will be back. We had a site right on the stream, and loved it. Lots of trees and enjoyed the ducks out on the stream. Site was level! The bathrooms are some of the best anywhere and very, very clean. Staff could not have been better. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Sites are not too roomy, and most are not shaded, but they are not cramped, level, and very nicely maintained. There were individual bathrooms that included showers and were spotless. Staff was very friendly and helpful. It was a great place to stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We reserved a site at the front of the park, but when we got there, they let us move to a better one on the stream. Very conveniently located to the Blue Ridge Parkway. They are very strict about their rules, but pleasant about it. Sites are very close together. They have a dog walk, but it is a very narrow strip at the front of the park. While we were there, they had a band one night and it was a lot of fun. The laundry and bath areas were spotless. It is not my favorite place to stay due to the spaces being so close together, but all in all, I would stay there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very nice campground with a real friendly staff, but be warned that it is expensive. As others have mentioned there is Bingo on Friday nights and coffee and pastry on Saturday mornings. They have live entertainment on Saturday nights and other activities on the week day nights. The campground advertises pull thru sites but, the pull through sites are not real pull throughs, if you are fortunate enough to be able to pull through, another camper may be placed behind you. This park has numerous rules that are explained to you in detail when you check in and are informed that the rules are taken seriously and if not followed you will be asked to leave without any refunds. The dog walking area is restricted to one area on one side of the park and is approximately 3ft wide. The sites are large enough for big rigs with room for slide outs and awnings but, everyone should be prepared to back into your site. Also one of the rules is that all the cars must park parallel to the road which makes the main roads narrow. When anyone arrives the campground staff must ask everyone parked in front to move their cars until the arrival backs in. I saw a lot of sites with fifth wheels and travel trailers that could have parked their cars into their actual sites, but the rule is parallel parking only. This is a PA campground so maybe that is why other's rate this park higher than I would. There is no swimming pool and all the sites are gravel with gravel patios. Rules state that camper rugs and carpets cannot be placed on the grass and only on the gravel patio area. I could not find anything that would make this campground outstanding and I would not make a special trip to return here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice clean park and nice people at the front office. We had a 'big' rig and were only able to park by pulling through a back-to-back space. If someone else came in, they would then have to back in behind us. Something to consider when staying there. Nice laundry room and nice community center with activities. We camped here in a Motorhome.
For the second year in a row, we have spent an entire month at this campground. We had a back-in site on the creek. The sites have been upgraded since last year, with gravel on the site as well as approximately 8' x 12' gravel patios at every site. It really cuts down on the mud when it rains. It's very quiet here, even though it's only about a mile off I-40. We've already reserved another month here for next year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stopped for one night, but wish we could have stayed longer. Very nice management. Nice sites. Had Saturday night entertainment that was excellent. Pretty stream. Will stop again and stay longer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stay here several times each year and once again were very pleased with the staff and this park. This is one of the nicest parks we stay at. Our rate was for PA members. We will return many times in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent location near Interstate for easy travel to area attractions. Clean park with nice level gravel pads. Dog walk has individual trash containers for refuse. Quiet park with bingo, entertainment, plus breakfast on Saturday in the rec room. Nice, big and homey-like bathrooms. Vehicles are parked in front of campers same direction as road. Rules are clear and easy to follow. Helpful staff with ice and propane for sale on site. Reasonable driving distance to town for supplies. Gas station less than mile away. Would highly recommend this park for anyone. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had a shaded site next to Jonathon Creek. The sites were wide enough to accommodate our multiple slide MH and our awning. The staff were very friendly, accompanied us to our site and directed us into the site. The campground has cable and since it did not carry a specific station, we were able to use our satellite - no problems with the foliage in getting the signal. Our overall experience at the park was positive and only slightly dampened by the noxious odor of fertilizer that was prevalent on both nights. We would stay here again! The location was close to Maggie Valley, Cherokee, Blue Ridge Parkway, and Smokey Mountain NP. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great Passport America Park. The free wifi worked excellent and we had over 70 cable channels. The park is very nice with level gravel sites and lots of grass in between. It has an exceptionally clean dog walk area. It is very quiet. The owner is friendly. He does have rules. One rule mentioned by other reviewers is the parallel parking issue. Since our RV is only 26 feet I made sure we could park straight in! He assured me we could as his concern was simply that your car should not stick out in the road. There are six individual shower/bathrooms. We will definitely camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a well run campground with good facilities for adults. There isn't much to do for children. The CG was full when we were there, and some of the sites were close together, but not too bad. We had a creekside site that was very nice. Grounds were clean, restrooms were excellent, rules were enforced, but in a friendly way. The staff was friendly and helpful. We will stop there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park with a barn and silo for us farm boys. Just about the nicest and cleanest shower/restrooms I ever seen. Not much to do in the park but in the Smoky Mountains so lots of scenic drives. Lot's of Floridians in the park for extended stays. Great and helpful staff. Sites were pretty close. Grounds were well kept. I believe it's actually closer to Maggie Valley than Waynesville. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Visited here last year and gave a better review. Decided to rent a pull-through site this year and was told I could only use half of the site although my receipt clearly stated I had rented two sites. (The one I parked in and the one directly behind me.) Upon being told how to park, the lady steered me directly into a tree, which scratched the corner of my new RV. I had to yell at her to stop her parking directions because she was bound and determined to back me into this tree. I then had to pull up as far to the front of the site as I could in order for my rear slide to miss the tree, which it didn't. The second person trying to park me stated they would go and get some equipment to trim the tree branch ends so my slide would not be scraped by them. The manager then showed up and told me they were not going to cut/trim any trees without the park owners visual supervision. He offered to move me to another site, but I just settled for this one and decided to live with the aggravation of the tree. Then there was no room in front of my coach to park my car and I decided to use the space behind me. I was told cars were to be parked parallel in front of campers and no parking was permitted in empty sites. When I asked why both site numbers were on my receipt if I could not use the one behind me for parking, I was told, "This is the parking policy of this park." I had to park my car in their overflow parking area for the entire week while the space behind me remained empty. I don't know what has happened from last year to this year, but I personally felt extremely uncomfortable being here with the present people running the place and I will not return. Nice park, but weird management attitude. And, for gosh sakes, trim your trees! RV's and fifth wheels need the camping space. The trees will survive some slight trimming to accommodate your customers! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We really liked this campground. The staff was very friendly and answered lots of questions about the area and gave very good directions. The roads are narrow and someone had to move his truck so that we could back in, but after we got settled there were no more problems. The sites were level and plenty wide. We backed up to the creek which was very pretty and relaxing. The WiFi and cable TV both worked well; lots of channels. The individual bathrooms were spacious and very clean. Only odd thing was the parking. We had enough room to pull our car straight into the site without it being near the street, but we were told we could not park like that so we pulled in parallel as directed. We viewed this as only a minor annoyance since everything else was so great. We hope we get to visit here again, and we do recommend it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Spent the spring camping here. Sites were big and fully graveled, your not in your neighbors door. Staff was very friendly. It is close to Maggie Valley which has many attractions, and it is peaceful and quiet. I would highly recommend this park. Is is laid out very well, with one way roads and part of the sites are pull throughs. The restrooms are the cleanest I have ever seen. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground is located about 2 miles from I-40 and is easily accessible. The office staff was friendly and helpful. The interior roads are narrow and the way the campground is laid out makes it very difficult for a large rig to make a swing to get out of the site. We had to have 2 big trucks move in order to get our 30 ft. travel trailer out. The pull thrus aren't really pull thrus unless there is no one behind you. The clubhouse and laundry room are in a cabin that also houses the bathrooms. This is the site of the only restrooms in the park. There are no facilities for children to play on. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Spent the spring camping here, very well laid out campground. Sites were big and fully graveled and not in your neighbors door. Staff was very friendly and helpful. It is close to many attractions, but it was peaceful and quiet. I would highly recommend this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wonderful RV Park just outside Maggie Valley. Grounds are well kept and all public facilities were extremely clean. Individual private bathrooms with shower, etc... , in Rec House. Sites are slightly "tight" to back in larger rigs and fifth wheels due to narrow driveways and the way you must park your car. Not a negative, just an observation! No problem with my 35' Class A. Just may take a couple of tries to get backed in. Wonderful creekside sites in park are available. Planned activities during the week (live music, bingo, community campfires, etc). A fun place to stay. All WNC and East TN. attractions are close by. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Highly recommend this park for it's picturesque and peaceful location, cleanliness and friendly helpful staff. Passport America park with easy access to the Interstate. We would definitely stay here again. We visited the park a 5th wheel in April 2005. Booked for a week and stayed two. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The noise is tolerable, but if you are looking for real peace and quiet you won't find it here. Gunfire, mainly on weekends, came from just across the road. Industrial rumblings also originated from across the highway. Traffic noise was annoying although sporadic at night. Sites were fairly long and quite level. The gravel did not get muddy after heavy rainfall. Restrooms were clean with good showers. Laundry was one of the nicest I have seen in any campground. Hookups were too far forward in the site. Roads were narrow leaving little room to maneuver if adjacent sites are occupied. Rate is for AOR. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The other reviews of this campground I find to be accurate. The staff was super helpful and friendly and the campground is an easy drive from I-40. Shopping was close by. Verizon cell and data was strong. We spent 5 nights here. It was quiet, peaceful and uncrowded. The lumber mills may not have been in full operation because we didn't find them to be an issue. Everything quieted down at night. It is one of the most well maintained campgrounds we have stayed at. The sites are tightly spaced but maneuvering wasn't a problem with our 37 foot RV. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed one night, and did not unhook. Site G12 was nearly level gravel, and just barely long enough for 38' plus toad. Nice view of creek that was running full and strong. Picnic table at site. Called ahead to check on pull through availability because we didn't want to unhook. Staff was exceptionally friendly, and put a reservation tag on office window for late arrival. Did not require prepayment for reservation. We paid in the morning, and staff was again friendly and helpful. Park was nearly empty. We might not have been able to make a turn with toad attached at end of section C if sites there had been occupied. Bathrooms and shower were uber-clean, but there were signs posted that there was no hot water available since Nov 7, 2013. Strange--glad we didn't need to use showers there. Amenities like pool and cafe were not open off season. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects our RPI membership plus the "fees" that were tacked on. The resort offers super easy access to I40 and the Smoky Mountains of North Caroline. The facilities are quite good with a big building for events, plus a “pavilion” for either open air or enclosed activities. The mini-golf is nice and there’s a playground for the children. There’s a pool and spa. One of the nicest things is Jonathan Creek which borders the eastern side of the property. Also, the Wi-Fi, included in the "resort fee" is quite good. Unfortunately, the resort is placed between two lumber processing facilities. Opposite the creek is a saw mill with heavy equipment making lots of noise. A short distance across the highway is another mill which makes a low pitched, penetrating whine that is pretty mush inescapable throughout the workday. The highway is just a few feet outside our back window. During the week when the one lumber processing plant was in full operation the sound of the trucks downshifting just outside our rear window was pretty loud. Also, our neighbors our just a few steps outside our front door. As you can tell, this place is a rather mixed bag of good and bad. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful big trees and lovely Jonathan Creek in mountain valley! The creek area and a long, wide grassy strip are parklike, with picnic tables, swings, and fire rings for anyone in the park to use. Facilities are beautiful and very clean! Large open/closed pavilions for groups and weekend live gospel/bluegrass music. Easy access to shopping and sightseeing--Blue Ridge Parkway, Smokies, Asheville. We will return! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was our first stay at this park. If will be our last. The park needs a lot if TLC. Park was quite noisy with too many unsupervised kids. Pool looked dirty; office staff was not very helpful. We went to park another park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We traveled here with another camper. When we called and made reservations, we were given sites we requested. On arrival, our sites had been changed. The change might not have been so bad except they placed us right by the pool. This meant having to listen to every screaming brat in the park. The park was clean and well kept. Most sites were level. The shaded sites are all in the middle or outer edge of the park. The downside is they are located next to a busy highway. There are two lumber mills nearby. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The campground is certainly dated and needs a ton of work. I did not see any sites that were not needing new gravel. The sites have not been updated for several years. We found rusty screws at multiple sites that appeared to be the same as used on the picnic tables. I requested and moved from our first site because of a ditch that had been dug to repair a water line and not properly filled back in. This hazard was right out our door, and I could just see the wife tripping and falling. The campground sites are short in length. Our rig is 37.5' long and needed a little play to get positioned well on the site. Some of the other units we were camping with were even worse. There is no camp store. The advertised breakfast cafe was not open, no propane, no ice or anything else available. While clean, the showers and restrooms were certainly dated and needing work. The campground is right off a major road, and there is a lot of road noise all night long. Cable worked well, internet connection worked well, but that was about all. The water pressure was at best around 20# according to my gauge. This would not be a place I would want to stay for many nights and only as a overnight if nothing else was available. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate reflects Passport America discount. We stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed our stay. The Management/Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The woman who checked us in felt that we might have trouble with the site assigned to us so she had us drive around and look at some alternates. We ended up selecting a different site. The roads are gravel and drain well (we had 1 day of rain). Community fire pits are convenient to the 50 amp sites. The laundry was very clean and well-maintained. Nice Clubhouse, too. Several of the amenities were unavailable. We had to go get a picnic table from where they were being cleaned/re-stained. We felt there should have been more of an off-season price, but they were the only RV Park offering PA discount in October and for more than one day. Overall a nice park. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed at Pride RV Resort under our Coast to Coast reciprocal agreement under our membership with our home park. The first time we stayed here was in 2000. We noticed several amenity upgrades since that first visit. There were nice level gravel sites, 3 point full hook-ups as well as creek side and mid-park pull throughs. There is located in the park a church building with resident pastoral family, laundry facilities, club house, pavilion, and a seasonal cafe and pool area. The park overall is a very nice place with many amenities; however, we did not enjoy our visit this time. We were charged $94.50 over and above our advanced payment with our Coast to Coast points and when we questioned the charges telling them we didn't need a 50 AMP site nor did we need a pull through creekside we were told it was a mandatory charge. Be advised that Pride Resort will apply these charges to Coast to Coast members. Upon calling Coast to Coast member services, it was agreed that the charges were exorbitant and the management was going to be contacted. Furthermore, be advised when we disputed the charges the manager became angry and was extremely disrespectful. I understand this isn't the kind of review that is welcomed but indeed it is a fact and fellow campers and potential guests at Pride Resort need to be made aware of these extra mandatory charges in addition to your Coast to Coast point charges and the angry display of management to a guest is inexcusable. I recommend as per the Coast to Coast member services representative that you contact the RV Park in advance and ask what the extra charges are going to be before you make your reservation. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We tried to stay here but were unable. First, the park did not answer our email. We drive an rv with auxiliary trailer for our motorcycle. The park would not let us keep our rig together on our site, even though it fit easily on a pull-through site. There fore, we decided to leave. They insisted that they were "motorcycle friendly" but we do not consider this to be the case, considering this policy. We did notice that the sites were very narrow, and jam-packed together. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one nice RV resort. Located next to a beautiful flowing creek, so relaxing. Lots of entertainment and things to do for all ages. Been here several times and plan on future visits. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground. Sites were a tad close together for my taste but overall the park was filed with amenities, clean, and in a good location. And, you can't beat the PPA discount. We stayed for 3 nights and would have stayed a few more, but they didn't have room. Will certainly stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a nice park. We checked in under one of our memberships at $10.00 a night for a weeks stay. By the time they tacked on cable, 50 amp, and G-row it came to $164.50 ($23.50 a day) for the week. That still is not a bad price, but when you expect $70.00 and it jumps that high, its a shock to the purse. Will inform my membership office that they need to warn of the extra charges. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I would have rated higher but the highway is right next to it, and the water kind of has a hose taste. The staff was great and our site was level and shaded. There is a lot for the kids to do and it is set at the base of the Smokey's an exit away from the parkway. I would return if in the area again! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here one week, parked in water front site (G area). The park is very nice with many amenities including a dance hall and Sunday morning non-denominational services. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Pool and spa facility was unavailable as it was the beginning of their season. But the area looked very inviting. Sites are gravel and grass, some with concrete pads. Saw mill across Johnathan Creek fires up at 7:00 AM. So, if you're a light sleeper, don't pick a water front site. Pets are limited to dogs under 30 pounds. Overall, a very nice stay with easy access to the Smoky Mtn Nat'l Park, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Asheville (Biltmore). We camped here in a Motorhome.
When we made reservations they did not tell us that they had no hot water for the showers and laundry. We assume it was turned off for winter months but no one could give us an answer. Also, we were surprised when they told us we had to pay an extra $3 per day because we had 50amp. This was not on their website and they did not tell me when we made reservations. Across the stream is a lumber company and the smell of this and manure was unbearable at times. We would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here two weeks using our AOR membership. Hated to leave. Great park and very friendly people. A lot of seasonals that live a few hours away and come here for the summer. Since the season was winding down, a lot of the activities were over except for bingo and "holey ball?". Beautiful laundry in the club house so you could sit in comfort while doing that wretched job. I would give this park a 10 except for...We were charged $13/day for AOR (usually $9) and $3.50 for "Amenities/cable TV". I asked why the extra AOR fee and was told it was because we were on the G row (creekside). We didn't ask for that row but it was pull through and very nice. We have satellite TV and it would work on that row so we didn't need the cable TV but had to pay for it regardless. AND if you didn't use the water for awhile, you need to run it a few minutes because it is brown and needs to be cleared out. Asked a few seasonals about it and they said that it is only that way on the G row. Talked to the manager and he said "they" were doing some work down the road and hit a water line so just "run it for a few minutes". I used to work for a water company and I know that if a water line is compromised and fixed, there can be muddy water for a couple of days, not 2 weeks. I think they have a problem on G row. Maybe the extra fee for that row is so they can afford to fix it someday?? All in all, a wonderful place to stay AND a great area with the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway and just awesome, beautiful, Jeep and motorcycle roads. Can't wait until we can make it back someday. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a really neat park... miniature golf course, pavilion with square dancing and lots of fishing spots. There were geese that bedded down right on the shore of the pond near our space each night. There were a whole lot of full-timers there, and it was a very friendly community. The spaces were very close together, and there was no shade in the row we were in, but the folks on either side of us couldn't have been friendlier, so we didn't mind. The reason I rated this a 7 is because it's right off of the main highway and the truck traffic is so loud it kept us up at night. We stayed here for 5 nights - and had planned to stay 7, but just couldn't stand the traffic at night. The office staff was not overly friendly about it, but did give us a refund for the nights we had paid for, but didn't stay for. If you're a heavy sleeper, this is a wonderful place to stay. We're used to the quiet of the country, so parks that have a lot of road noise aren't so enjoyable for us. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Check in was quick and easy. Our original site had no water available due to a break somewhere. So, we were upgraded to a stream side site without extra charge to us. The only negative we found to this park was the large number of permanent residents whose sites were junky and very unattractive. Some had two or three tents that were open over onto the next site. It was not even pleasant to walk past those. We do not think we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very very clean and neat. Stayed at site G-9 "stream site" across the road. Pool, laundry, clubhouse and bath/showers etc. were spotless. Great activities for all. Putt putt was the best we have ever seen from west coast to east coast. I was surprised we were not charged extra to use any of the activities like the other "campground." I don't like to be nickled and dimed for everything. We had a lot of fun. Another plus is you are in the middle of Waynesville and Maggie Valley. OK, the mill across the creek does have a smell. Most of the time you will smell a mild cedar/pine/mulch smell. On our 4th and last night, we did smell the manure smell; it was very thick and lasted for approximately 45 min. Do not pass this one up because of this. This campground has been the best one for all of us so far. Only reason for not giving a 10 is that the sites on "G creek front", are not really creek sites since the creek is across the road and the sites are not level. Everyone had to block and jack the front off the ground approximately 6-7 inches. This might be normal for the water shed. We will absolutely be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate for RPI. The Park is well maintained and neat. The clubhouse and pavilion, office and laundry/restrooms/showers are all immaculate. Our only contact with the staff was at check-in and they were friendly and helpful. We noticed a slight odor (compost maybe??) but the noise others suggested was not evident during our stay. There is a mill across the creek and a topsoil business across the highway but not offensive. The interior roads are all gravel and sites are crushed rock, drive through with full hookups. The site I was assigned (D-8) required two leveling blocks on the left side, not really unusual in a lot of parks. The issue which lowers the score is the lake which develops at sites D-7, D-8 & D-9 in heavy rain storms. The water does drain eventually but is really a mess when you step out of the RV into a puddle 3-4 inches deep during or following heavy rains. Other sites did not have this problem. There are lots of activities here, for family or specific age groups. This park hosts square dance and line dance classes and also books entertainment groups. The group which entertained during our stay was a vocal quartet and three piece band. We thoroughly enjoyed our stop here and would return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Clean park and nice location except for two things: 1.Directly across the creek is a mulch grinding operation that ran all day long. Very Noisy! 2. Smell from manure / compost, not sure where from but you are surrounded by farming. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found the staff to be friendly although we did not come into contact with them after check-in. The sites were adequate enough and the campground was very quiet. The WiFi did not work in that we were too far away from the office. The other disturbing thing was the logging operations that were going on across the creek: noisy all day long. Although they did not honor any discounts, if we were to return to Maggie Valley, we would consider this campground again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The lot sizes are extremely well-spaced and the campground is very neat. Our site was along the creek but within site of the pool and laundry facilities. The pool water was sparkling clean and heated which made evening swims very comfortable. The laundry facilities were well-maintained and clean. The employees are very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed our stay there immensely! We will definitely stay there again! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great park, the staff was helpful and friendly. Very quiet with mostly older couples like us, a plus to me. It rained 3 times and roads had some water but not a problem. They have some type of square dancing every night. I would give them a 10, but Wi-Fi would not reach our campsite but club house was nice. The rate is the C2C rate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here in a 40' 4-slide motorhome using our AOR membership. The resort is very nice, well maintained and has friendly/helpful personnel. We had 50 amp and table. We were in site G10 looking at the stream. The park is quiet and within distance of The Great Smokey Mountain National Park and Ashville: Biltmore Estate. We had to use blocks under the front jacks to get enough lift to level out our motorhome. Otherwise, the stay was great. We would return again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here for 4 nights with this being our second time this year and will be back again as we love this park. It has all the amenities you could want. We have had sites facing the stream both times and enjoyed them. The staff is friendly and efficient. Entertainment was good also. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here for two nights in our forty-foot motorhome after having our reservations totally botched at another campground next door. Pride Resort is extremely nice: large sites, large interior roads, very well maintained and very well managed. Everything about this location is extremely positive except that some of the sites are not level. We had to move from one pull-through to another and still our motorhome had great difficulty leveling. Otherwise, we would have rated Pride as a "ten". We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here under AOR which is $9 a night and had to pay $3.50 for cable TV even though we have a sat. dish. Still the best buy in the area (place next door is $39 a night). Very friendly staff - lot's of activities and great breakfast buffet in the restaurant. Near enough to town for shopping. Very quiet area and parked next to the stream made it nice. I would recommend for small children as a lot of things for them here also. Sign at checkin list dog breeds (pitbull, etc.) not allowed and I only saw a few small ones around. I guess they really enforce that rule. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a private resort campground. We stayed a week in a motorhome. We have a nice stream side pull site with a gravel pad and full hookups. The park was neat and clean and everything was well maintained. The Wifi is transmitted from one location at the clubhouse. We were too far away to connect. Nice park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A clean pleasant park. We enjoyed the stay and would return. It is close to so many areas and activities in Western North Carolina. Our rate was $8 because we are AOR members. Our two small (12 lbs) dogs were not an issue. (800) 926-8191 We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here for one night. The campground is very nice and clean with excellent showers, pool and spa. They have a cafe' that serves breakfast at a reduced rate for guests. Were asked not to return because our dog was over 30 pounds. I could understand, if you have an aggressive or barking dog. My dog is a professionally trained hound dog and is well behaved. She didn't bark and was only out twice to go to the bathroom (I did pick up after her) and walk up the street and back once. Will not return. Taking pets along is the main reason why I camp. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We camped at a creekside site. The park was very well-kept with lots of amenities that kept our kids entertained. Some seniors who stay in the campground also work there. They are very friendly and take great pride in their campground. The cafe has a wonderful breakfast offered to campers at a discount. The pool is very clean. We enjoyed watching the square dancing and attending the Sunday morning church service. The only disadvantage was the lumber mill across the creek that started up very early and woke us up. But even with that, I would give this campground a ten. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful camp ground and nice location. Stayed there three seasons and last time was reprimanded by management for washing off love bugs from front of camper. I just sprayed the front of camper, not an entire wash job. Walked down the street and the same person was washing their entire camper. Inconsistent rules for all campers. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Some of the sites facing Jonathan Creek are difficult to level. Large sawmill operation across the highway is quite noisy at times. Otherwise, this is a great destination for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We will definitely return to this park. Less that half of the sites are satellite friendly but cable and WiFi are available. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found this to be a very pretty well kept public campground that was also a Coast to Coast park. They had pull thru sites although we had a pull "in" site facing the stream, with full hookups and cable TV Were charged a surcharge of $6 for Cable TV for the two days. Had to pay for cable even though we didn't want it. We did have free Wi-Fi that we didn't know about or anyone mentioned. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wonderful park. Clean. Free putt-putt, Hillbill golf, heated pool, hot tub, beautiful stream, stocked fishing pond (catch & release), playground. Friendly staff works hard to keep park clean. This is one mile off I-40 with a well lit entrance. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is the roads are gravel as well as the sites but they are in great shape. They also have park model and cabins for rent as well. There are activities almost daily. They are about 40 minutes from Cherokee, and a little over an hour from Pigeon Forge. They are part of C2C, AOR, Passport America and RPI. I'm not sure about the nightly rates for public, but if you're part of AOR it's only $9/night. What a deal! We will camp here again and probably on a regular basis We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very small park. Its very shady, and right on Jonathan's creek. It has about half park models. Its also pretty quiet, but does get road traffic noise. The creek is beautiful and peaceful. The owners are wonderful people and try to take care of all of your needs. Big rigs may have an issue here. You have to be able to move your rig around in very tight spaces. We stayed here in a 40 ft 5th wheel. We loved the campground and would come back here again and again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very small,very nice, very old RV park on Jonathan Creek. Run by very nice helpful couple. Majority of the park is old RV's with locals living there full time. A few sites for nightly, weekly stays. playground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It was a nightmare! We arrived to find the smallest campsite we ever saw. We couldn't even get in to it. The neighbor on one side had his awning out which came over on us at least 3 feet. On the other side there was a camper with about three big tents that had eased onto us a couple of feet. Even if we made them move and the guy took down his awning, it would have been tight. We did not stay here. We went down the road and found a beautiful, shady place that was 3 times the size. Anyone we talked to knew of that park's reputation. We were told they changed their name from Jonathon's Hideaway to Somers Cream. There are many other options for Maggie Valley. Choose Wisely. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Sites were very small. Need gravel at sites only bare dirt/mud. Bad road noise constantly from Hwy. 279 Nice stream. Shady locations, Decrepit permanent residence travel trailers, and weird people in them. Their are a lot better sites within 3 miles. Would rather stay home than go back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We booked this place sight-unseen. When we pulled in, it was much smaller than I expected. We checked in and proceeded back to our site, which was directly on Jonathon Creek--beautiful! The entire campground is shaded, so it was wonderful in July. All the sites had fire rings and a picnic table; although, they were all tight. Thankfully, there was an empty site next to us. We were directly in front of the bath house. We used it--the women's and handicap were clean and nice. The men's looked like they forgot to finish it when the built the building--unfinished, bare studs, crowded stalls. And nasty! So, for the rest of the time, I used the handicap bathroom. There was 90% seasonal; in fact, I don't think anyone else checked in the three days we were there. Loved the shade and creek, love the area. We would stay here again. The price was right! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Price shown reflects seasonal rate. This park is a little piece of paradise, up the road from the Jonathan Valley. Normally, I would not give a park a "10" rating when it doesn't have a pool or even a bathroom or showers, but we are having such a good time here, I have to give it my top rating. It's not fancy, but it feels like home. It is a peaceful, quiet environment far enough off the major roads to avoid the sound of traffic, but not so far as to be out in the middle of nowhere. We had no trouble getting our 39-foot rig up the road or into the park. At about 2400 feet altitude, the nights are cool and the days are warm (it's the middle of July and we haven't had the air conditioner on yet!). The view of the mountains all around is breathtaking. The park is landscaped with beautiful flowers and plantings and the owner and camp hosts are constantly improving and sprucing up the park. They are responsive to any problems or requests. Convenient to shopping in Waynesville and Maggie Valley and it's only about a 40-minute drive to Asheville. There is no end of places to visit within a two-hour drive, mostly less than two hours. There are some true big-rig sites and some more suitable for smaller trailers. The owner frequently hosts cook-outs and ice-cream socials in the clubhouse and also arranges for motorcycle outings and lunch runs to scenic areas. Today, I realized that it is less like he is running a RV park and more like he has invited 75 of his "cousins" to spend the summer and he wants them to have a good time. Mostly permanents and seasonals but there are spaces for shorter stays. Everyone is extremely friendly and welcoming. Very pet friendly (and if you don't have your own dog, no worry.....Duke and Blizzard - the park dogs - will adopt you). Good places to walk dogs and a big open area for throwing balls. Strong Wi-Fi, cable, water pressure and electricity. Sites are very level. Two washers and dryers in the club house. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park is nicely landscaped. Hosts/management are very friendly. The sites are somewhat small for a big rig (no parking in the site for a tow vehicle). If the park was full, tow parking would be a big issue. The WiFi did NOT work well for us. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has beautiful landscaping and beautiful mountain views. It is well off the highway, so it's very quiet. Residents are mostly seasonal, and the park was mostly full when we were there. The sites still available were neither as large nor as level as those already taken. Our slides were against a tree on one side, while the awning was against a tree on the other side. Cable and Wifi worked well. We also had ATT cell coverage, not real common in the area. Rate quoted is full rate; Passport America is available weekdays. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Had a wonderful time in the Waynesville area and at Trails End. The campground was very quiet as most of the campers were long term (month or more). Nicely landscaped and very clean. Hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Close to Waynesville, Maggie Valley, Cherokee and Great Smokey Mountains NP. Will definitely be back there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you want to stay in a beautiful, quiet, peaceful, scenic RV park surrounded by mountains and operated by friendly people, this is the place for you. The flowers and grounds are beautifully maintained. There is a small creek running alongside the property and you can hear the sounds of the small waterfall all day: absolutely wonderful! We camped here for a month and will definitely return. The owner and his assistants, were absolutely delightful and did everything to make our stay pleasant and comfortable. The rate was a monthly rate with electricity being an additional cost. I highly and heartily recommend Trail's End RV Park! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is a bit on the spartan side but the views and surrounding countryside are spectacular. This is a wonderful spot for some quiet and tranquility. The owner is friendly and helpful and quite interesting to talk with. At the time of our stay there were no laundry facilities but I believe there were plans to add them. It seems a bit pricey for the amenities (or lack thereof) but we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is actually closest to Maggie Valley, and our favorite in the area as it is off the main noisy roads. It has improved over the several years that we have been staying here. Some sites are next to a creek. They have recently added some pull through sites which helps with our Toyhauler to get bikes out and in. Nice folks and they will work with you to make you happy. Rate is $35-41 and they have monthly rates. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A very relaxing, beautifully kept property. Owner is "green" and very diligent. Location is bucolic: way of the main road but still easy to find because of signage. Worth a retrip. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice, clean park. Gorgeous views of the mountains on all sides. Small stream through property, new landscaping. Close to Maggie Valley/Asheville. Very nice management. We definitely will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First of all, the owner is miserable. I think its time they retire. There are several really dumpy looking trailers here with things just laying all over the place. There are 7 TV channels and they are all news except ESPN. Alot of the sites were really old looking and for this time of the year, the place was half empty. That tells me alot because other parks in the area where full. Restrooms were clean, and there is a laundry that was OK. They say they have a store, but its empty. Place is old and needs to be updated. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a perfect place for folks who want peace and quiet. The lots are shady and huge. There is a creek in back with picnic tables. I would not take my grandchildren there as it was mostly older people. But it is my favorite place to go alone with my husband. You will love this place. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is in a nice location, sites are very shady. Cable TV consists of 8 channels of which 2 or 3 work well enough to watch. WiFi worked well. As for the creek side sites, none of them are 50amp and most are taken by seasonal campers. Lots of Floridians nesting here. Park was neat in appearance. The biggest negative was the owners themselves and all there pesky rules posted all over the campground. Avoid the owners and enjoy your stay. We would camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground was ok, but we were told we would have a pull thru site next to the friends we were traveling with. We got a back in site several sites away from our friends. We made our reservations months in advance. The campground was mostly senior citizens from Florida. Not really designed for families or campers under 60. The owners were helpful, but it was just not what we expected for our week stay in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground has paved interior roads and lots of shade trees to escape the summer heat, which is why it is a favorite for snowbirds from Florida. The park manager, Hamp, is very nice but the female owner scares people away. They have lots of petty rules posted and you feel unwelcomed. We had stayed here many years for short periods of time, and the best suggestion that I have is to avoid the owners and you will enjoy your stay. Although they do have clean bathrooms, they really don't want anyone to use them. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Campground has very wide sites with a lot of large, mature shade trees. The pull thrus are grass; however, there appears to be a rock base under the grass. Campground is very clean and neat; a beautiful mountain stream runs along the back of the campground. There is some traffic noise from the highway especially at the pull thru sites, but the traffic dies down at night and did not disturb us. There are a number of seasonal campers in the park. Everyone was friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay at this campground again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
