PROS: off the main drag, quiet, extremely well maintained, clean, level sites (most gravel unless you pay premium for paved), very nice staff, beautiful mountain views. CONS: cable box (pain for us as our TV is connected from back, and mounted to wall), sewer pipes were tall--took some work to get them to drain well. OTHER: we decided to stay two more nights, and were told we had to change sites. We did so willingly, but nobody ever showed up for the site we vacated. Upon check out, we were told there was no other reservation--we had moved for no reason--and they don't promise specific sites for reservations. Bottom line is that there is inconsistency in staff. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is clean as were the restrooms/showers. Both the laundry area and pool area were spotless. Overall the park is very clean and nicely laid out (except for site size). WiFi was a little slow and hard to get connected to and any type of television is all but non existence. The sites are very close together and for the most part setup for motor coaches. Our camper is 38 feet in length and pretty much filled up the pull through site we had. Once unhooked, parking the truck was an issues. Now the park does give some beautiful views of the mountains. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Wears Valley, where the park is located, is a wonderful area to camp. Important note: If you are considering this park do not let your GPS bring you into this park via Townsend, TN. The section of road (HWY 321) that runs from Townsend to Wears Valley is not a safe pull for anything larger than a pop-up. Use Hwy 321 South from Sevierville, TN. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate shown is a rally rate. Very friendly and helpful staff. Was escorted to our site. Entrance roads are paved, but interior roads are gravel and well groomed. Sites are both concrete and gravel, but all are level. Cable system requires changing the hook up on your TV to connect a cable box given to us at time of registration. We were told a new company is coming in and the boxes will be history, but this process is still a couple of month away. WiFi was slow. Grounds are well kept and there is a beautiful view of the mountains. Very quiet park, but is located about 8 miles from town. We would return to this RV park again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for 2 months this fall and can honestly say this park is in the top two of the hundreds of places we’ve stayed in our 7 years of full timing. The word Resort is quite correctly used in the name because of all the beauty and all it offers. But it is not snobbish like so many “resorts” can be; just very real people who are very warm and accommodating. True southern hospitality at its finest. The sites are spacious and most are appointed with small lawns with shrubs and flowers. There are picnic tables and fire rings too. The water is city supplied, clean and odor free. Pressure is about 55 so we used a reducer. The Wi-Fi was always reliable and speeds only slowed if the park filled up on holidays or weekends. The park appears to be only 4-5 years old and all the facilities are absolutely immaculate and always spotlessly clean. The hosts are extremely helpful and friendly and we always felt like we were home among friends. The views of the gorgeous Smoky Mountains are spectacular and a highlight. No better vista to see out of our windows. Elvira’s Café a couple miles toward Townsend is a wonderful place for breakfast or lunch. Other restaurants as well and there is a zip line and a mountain sled ride nearby too. Lastly, it is the people who run this park that make it so inviting, warm and nice. We highly recommend staying here if you’re visiting the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area and we will definitely return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not sure I would call this a resort, but a campground. We stayed here 3 nights with PA and had gravel site that was not level. Campground, restroom and showers were very clean. The pool was cleaned everyday, had trash pickup in the mornings. The air card and cell phone had good signal. Don't think I will camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good sites. Great views of Smoky Mountains. Very winding road driving to park and it is also about 7 miles from the activity of Pigeon Forge. Advertised cable but it was a type of digital box that you had to hook up to your television and it would not work with our system. No security, no trash pick-up. Passport America sites were gravel back-ins that were not adequate for our RV so we had to pay for a premium site. Would not stay here again. Would stay closer to town with better choices in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park has a beautiful view of the mountains. They have an up charge for the concrete sites, so we took a back in gravel site. Nice and long, no problem parking the toad in front of the RV. Very close to the back entrance Smoky Mountain National Park. Went in the back way and was shocked at the line of traffic that was coming in front entrance out of Gatlinburg. Glad we were able to miss the long lines. Park was clean with nice club house and wash house. Front desk did not seem to be very friendly; ask about what to see and where to eat, and they seemed a bit put off. Is a ways from town if you think you are going to it often. I think we would try another place next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful park with stunning views of the Smoky Mountains! Park was apparently built to sell each lot, but economy did not support that, so rental spaces are available on a nightly basis. Many open areas that will eventually be developed when economy improves. Our site was a huge concrete slab, with a nice patio area. Grass between sites, and nice landscaping. Our site was 70+ feet, and very wide. Picnic tables at each site, and nice hookups. Views are awesome from every site! Laundry room, restrooms and showers are very clean. However, noticed that when walking our dog late at night, men were using the laundry room (that is in same unlocked hallway where showers are located) that were not staying in the park. There is no onsite park host currently, so not sure how security is handled. Park is very quiet and away from the terrible traffic in town. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
if you want a great view of the smokies all day every day, all you have to do is look out the window here. located at the base of the smokies just outside the national park. very new and a great place to stay to get away from the noise and the crowd. its about 7 miles from 441 and all the restaurants and shopping. We will be back here soon. great staff, very friendly and accommodating. Nice pool if you like to swim, closed for the year while we were here but we don't use the pools anyway. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wonderful new park! Most of the sites are concrete and large with an offset area for your tow car. It's far enough away from the busy Pigeon Forge attractions that it is a quiet and wonderful place to return to at the end of the day. The office and lodge area is cozy and welcoming. There is a "back door" entry to the Great Smoky Mountains just a few miles away. The individual shower rooms are outstanding; the pool area is beautiful; laundry room is top notch; and the exercise room is modern and has walls of windows to enjoy the view of the Smokies. The WiFi was one of the best we have had in an RV Park. We loved this park and would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I would consider this a resort "in the making". The gate is impressive, as is the Clubhouse. VERY nice. Great contact by phone and very helpful last at check-in. The pool area, game room, showers and laundry are first rate. The existing sites are nicely laid out (except for one left near the pool where a large rock might have been placed a tad farther out from the road) and we managed nicely in our 40' motorhome without unhitching our toad. Large, level concrete pull throughs with ample parking for car, nice table, many with fire rings. The landscaping is new, but thoughtfully done. There are back-in gravel sites that are already filled with "weekend" 5th wheels, and a few longer term residents, but everything is very tidy and clean. No tree cover, so our satellite worked very well, but they have cable access. We had decent Verizon service and OK MiFi signal, but their park Wi-Fi was very good. I would love to see this park expand and work towards completion. This was our first stay in the area. We were close to the Nat'l Park and had an easy drive to the entrances, close to the restaurants and attractions in Pigeon Forge, but that is not our main focus. We prefer the Park and fewer tourists. This location gave us a quiet place to come back to. Our price reflects a Passport America mid-week rate. It was certainly a great value. We will return to this park on our way across the US. We are full-timers who crisscross cross yearly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here 2 nights on our way out west. The rate is a Passport America rate. They are expanding, and when done, the park will have 156 sites. There are gravel, concrete and grass sites. 8 of the concrete sites are extra long for big rigs. All the concrete sites have picnic tables and an offset for parking your tow vehicle. No shade yet, but will be a little once the trees grow more. The restrooms, shower, laundry and game/exercise room are very clean and spacious. The whole park is clean and well laid out. The Wi-Fi was excellent, but the park wasn't busy. Don't know how it would be under a heavy load. We were in a long site, but received the lower rate for the shorter sites. Not sure why, maybe because it was so early in the season? We might bring our grandchildren to see the Great Smoky Mt. National Park. If we do, we would consider staying here. It's close enough to the park and other attractions, but out of the way enough that it is quiet and relaxing. They would be kept busy with the pool, creek and game room. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park will be a 10 when extensive revamping is finished. Many of the sites are not finished at this point, but we had a beautiful long concrete site with paved car park area and picnic table. Landscaping has been thoughtfully done. Utilities were well placed for big rigs. We would have been better in a shorter site, but that was our fault, since we came in on Sunday when office was closed. We had called ahead and were told to pick a pull-through site and come up Monday to check in. Facilities are luxurious, both in the "Welcome center" and the pool/shower/laundry/game and exercise area. Quiet, outside the amusement park atmosphere, and extraordinary mountain view, make this a find. I was surprised to find a neighboring rig received a "Passport" rate. We asked and were told no. Still it is a lovely park and the trees will grow. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice new park still under construction away from noise and traffic of Sevierville-Pigeon Forge-Gatlinburg strip. Roads and sites wide, long and paved. Utilities good. Wi-Fi signal very strong. Pool, showers, rest rooms very clean. Two washers and dryers, but not busy. Good location for entry into NE section of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Don't miss thrill ride of the Tail of the Dragon along Route 129. There are 318 turns over 11 miles. Particularly great for motorcycles and small sporty cars. Park has no shade trees yet, but good view of mountains and countryside. We would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a fairly nice campground that appears to be still under construction. Our first site was a gravel site and we had no water pressure, after speaking with management she moved us to a concrete site which was much better. The gravel sites are tiny and do not have picnic tables or fire pits and can be quite muddy in the rain. The concrete sites do have picnic tables and some have fire areas. The Wi-Fi was spotty but acceptable most of the time the cable was fuzzy when it was raining. The biggest issue we had was with the water it was often muddy even though we had our filter on, so we used bottled water for cooking and teeth brushing. I probably wouldn't stay here again, just because it was too far out of town for me and the construction going on. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Friendly staff and a very nice park. Although the park is a little ways out we enjoyed the peace, quite and the views from our site, very pleasing. The clubhouse had clean bathrooms, exercise area and a pool that we used a lot during these hot days. We will return as we enjoyed the park and the area around it's location. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A great park with great managers. A little out of the way of Pigeon Forge but nice and quiet. Beautiful views of the mountains right outside your windows and local stores and shops close by. The only reason it's not a 10 is there is no shade. We loved it there and will go back to see Scott and Rebecca again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you want to be in the hustle and bustle of Pigeon Forge this is not the place to stay. However, if you want beautiful views of the Smoky Mts, clean air, cool temperatures at night then this is a great RV park. Service was great. The park features cement pads, and a nice swimming pool. The trip to Pigeon Forge is about 8 miles down curvy mountain roads but easily accessible in a 42 ft RV. It is a family friendly park. It is five miles to the back entrance of the Great Smoky Mountains Park. There are still sites to be completed but not a hindrance to the rigs. The main park complex was very nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
For a park setup to sell lots, they need to work on the first impression of potential guest. We stayed on Passport America, but being in on a holiday, I would think they would have better prepared by mowing the grass and having the park look its best. Great place for $20, but no way I would pay $80K to buy a lot. Very good interaction with staff during reservation process, checkin and even when we asked them to mow our grass, just should have already been done. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a brand new resort with about 90 sites when finished. The park is still under construction with about 20 sites usable as of this writing. Pool area laundry showers and landscaping are not complete.Owners expect to to finish at the end of June. The site we used was cement but not level (#43) and appears the other sites will be the same. A lot of money spent for sites not to be level. Directions from Rt 441 turn on Rt 321 south approximately 8 mi towards Townsend, park on left. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There's no resort here just a RV Park. Staff is helpful, sites are quite large but not very level. All sites are gravel. No laundry or restrooms. They do take Good Sam although it's not noted on their web site. Several of the sites have the hookups on the left side requiring you to pull in instead of backing in. Nothing exceptional just average facilities except size of sites. Nothing much for kids to do. Cable TV requires an adapter box be installed in your TV coax input to access all the cable channels. If you only have HDMI connections then you're going to have problems. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We've stayed in some very expensive RV resorts over the years, but this was absolutely the nicest place we've stayed at a very good price. I was in a slot that had to be close to an acre in size. The landscaping was superb and with no hesitation in saying the quietest and most serene location you can imagine. The office personnel was SO nice and helpful. No doubt if ever this way again, this is where I will stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Don't be fooled by the Sevierville address. Park is a long drive from Sevierville. 9.5 miles from the activities at Pigeon Forge. Beautiful park with helpful, friendly owners and managers. No bath house or laundry. Nice pool with snack bar during summer. Drive carefully on US 321 between Pigeon Forge and Townsend. Curves will test your driving skills. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice visit. We stayed in the shaded sites, but in return, the views we're obscured. We were told to check in before 6pm; when we got there at 5:30pm, door was locked and envelope with our name was taped to the front door. Limited information was given to us so we didn't know that trash pickup was only at 11am. They did agree to let us stay until 1 pm the day of departure. Pool was nice but crowded. Overall the grounds were nice. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed here 10 days for our every-5-year trek to TN. We have a 34' fiver and a 30' truck to pull it with. Informed the park of our size while making reservations, and they chose a site for us [#2] with more than enough room to spare. Easy in and out for big rigs. Park is very clean, and sites are well spaced for privacy. Only reason we didn't give it a 10 was because of very poor wi-fi which they say they're trying to upgrade. Office staff is super friendly and willing to give directions and pointers to the nearby GSMNP. Good Sam discount is honored. GREAT place and loved our stay! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 9 / 10 ]
Large lots. Excellent view of the Mountains. Full Hookup and 50 AMP service. Stayed here for 2 weeks and did not want to leave. Owners keep campgrounds very clean. 10 miles down the mountain to Dollywood and attractions. Will absolutely come back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is amazing. It's tucked away in the mountains instead of right off the main road like several other campgrounds we past. The staff is very friendly. The sites are HUGE. The view is amazing. There are several residential sites. I chatted with a few of them. They are very friendly and welcoming. Our site was next to a pasture of cows, but I never smelled them. They do not have restrooms or showers. However, since they have full hook-up, we were fine. They do not have laundry facility, but, from what I understand, they plan on putting one in. If you plan on visiting the Pigeon Forge/Gaitlinburg area, I would definitely recommend this place. I can't say enough great things about it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A new park that is in Wears Valley and away from all the traffic. Ten minutes from the National Park via Lions Springs entrance. Half of the sites are in the open and half are in the woods. There is a lake for fishing too. The owners live on property and are always doing some impromptu event like Friday night movies or a bonfire. My favorite park in the Smokies. Motorcycle friendly too. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate shown is a weekly rate with Good Sam discount. Not many amenities for the price! The bathrooms were clean but showers were small with nothing but a small bench for your 'stuff.' We stayed in the low numbered sites and it was a long, long walk to the showers/laundry/store. If you were located at the middle or end of the RV park you would have a very, very long walk to shower/wash clothes. Sites would be shaded in the summer at the end of the day if you are parked on the river. The rest of the park has small trees that wouldn't provide much shade. Sites are gravel but the grass between sites tends to hold water & provides a soggy area to walk in. There is a comfortable distance between sites. Although there are 50 back-in sites along the Pigeon River, there were only 10 or 12 that had heat tape for their water faucets. The rest of the river sites had the water turned off to prevent freezing. This required the office staff to place overnight RVers only in those 10/12 sites instead of being able to spread out the users along the river. When late night arrivals came, they were right next door, making noise. The only playground was near the office which was a long walk if you were parked in the middle or farther back. Washing machines were $2.25/load. The Pigeon River was 'ripplin' by & is nice to 'contemplate' in a comfortable lawn chair with an adult drink or two. Wi-Fi was slow to tolerable but they did provide a rinky-dink ID & password for basic security. Because of the wet areas almost everywhere, we would not use this park for a long stay again but it would be fine for overnight. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The campsites are very roomy, pets are welcome. Love to wake up early in the morning and look out over the lake while the sun comes up, very relaxing. The bathrooms are OK, just need cleaned a little more often. This is a managed campground, so its first come first served place. Was hard to find a spot, people try to save sites for friends that might not come in until the next weekend. We were there for three days when somebody came up and accused us of moving their tent they put on the site nine days prior to our stay, but another camper came and said he had seen the tent get blown into the lake in one of the storms that came through. I do not like other people coming up to my site to look at my departure date on my power pole, but I guess that's all part of staying there. I will go back and try another vacation there, if there is anything available In September. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Following a last-minute decision to take the camper out on a long holiday weekend -- and to a typically crowded "tourist spot," to boot -- we believe we made a good choice with this campground. Thanks to a cancellation, we were able to get a riverside site (our rate reflects Good Sam for this type site), which proved to be very pleasant. The staff was very friendly and helpful on the phone and at check-in, and a staffer in a golf cart led me to our site and helped me back the camper in, which is always greatly appreciated. Our site was level and plenty spacious for our 29' TT w/ slideout. This campground was generally very quiet (tho it is across the highway from one of the local helicopter tour operations, which is a sound we eventually got used to while outside), and appeared to be well maintained. Our grandson greatly enjoyed the nice pool (well, we did, too), and the adjacent bath house was very clean with good upkeep. There's also a small playground which we didn't visit. The free Wi-Fi was hit-or-miss while inside our camper (perhaps a function of being near the far end of the property), but no issues while outside. A big plus in my (i.e., the driver's) view was this campground's general location -- close enough to the various local attractions, but not "too close" as to be a traffic hassle, and close enough to I-40 to beat much of the departing traffic at the end of our stay. Should we opt for this trip again (we live ~90 minutes away), we would definitely consider returning here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The staff was friendly, but the campground is not very well maintained. The grass immediately out our door was tall and needed to be cut. All the grass surrounding our site needed to be cut. Other areas that had been cut were full of dried grass clippings. As a result, taking pets out was messy. The sites are gravel, and ours was not level. This is a nice place for an overnight, but not longer. May be better if you have no pets. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had a water front site with nice grassy area. The office staff was friendly and helpful. The small store was well supplied. I would have given a higher rating but the location was very congested due to the main road construction. There was a constant problem of getting in and out of this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good campground we were backed up to a river friendly staff nice level sites. With construction you can only enter the park from one direction and the helicopter rides across the street are noisy. Showers and laundry are not close to any campsite. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Lots of construction on road out front. It’s a real mess right now but should be much nicer when completed. When leaving you must turn right out of the campground and find someplace to make a U-Turn to get back to I-40. Lady in office was kind of sour and yelled at her son while registering us. Sites are cramped but fortunately the park wasn’t full so nobody was next to us. The full-time/seasonal sites are packed on top of each other and some are messy and dirty. Too steep to access river. Level sites, steady electric and water pressure. Small pool, looked clean but a long walk up hill from sites. Only one dumpster for the entire park which was also an uphill walk. Good for an overnight stop off I-40 but too far out and too much traffic and construction to battle to make this a good place to stay if you plan to go to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Dollywood or other attractions. Think we would try another place next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The Good 1) Staff is friendly 2) Close to lots of entertainment 3) Bathrooms are pristine 4) River is nice The not so good 1) No privacy whatsoever 2) sites too close together 3) Internet keeps dropping out and slow (I am on it now) 4) Older folks in big rigs the norm. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a beautiful RV park, right on the river. The park is well kept with beautiful trees and grassy sites. The roads and parking are gravel but the gravel is tightly packed making for easy driving and walking. The management was friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a large park situated on a stream and they have a pool. We managed to get in here just before a major thunderstorm, so I was hooked up before the rains came. There is cable TV but we found the All Stars game using the antenna so we left it that way. There are many stations you can get with an antenna. The internet and TV came and went but I have to blame that on the storm. When it back up and running, both ran well. We are going to stay here 3 days. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground is a little far out to be used to see Gatlinburg. However, it is within a reasonable distance for going to one of the two main Flea Markets. The smaller of the two is within walking distance. The sites seem to be laid out in an efficient manor. All the sites look to be mostly level. The site (#80) we were in, needed just a little bit of leveling. Most all sites come with a picnic table and they all look to be in good shape. Some of the river sites come with a concrete pad that the table sits on. Plus, some of the river sites have a built in grill. There are no fire rings in this campground. The WiFi worked but was spotty at times. The pool was of good size and looked to be in good repair. There were not enough chairs and table for the number of sites in the campground. The roads were all gravel and were not dusty at all. The river is all but useless. It is too steep to go down to and looks snaky as well. The bathhouse was in good shape but this campground could use another one for the amount of sites they have. We did not use the cable TV. The sewer drained well and the water they had was ok. The only thing I can complain about it the helicopters that flew overhead. There was a tour company just across the hwy. Also, getting back out was a little trouble. You have to make a right and find a place to turn around to get back to the interstate. The owners were more than pleasant to deal with. This campground does not allow tents. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had reservations at another park, but the ownership changed hands and the new owner's were rude. We contacted Ripplin Waters Campground and they agreed to let us hold our Good Sam Chapter campout here. The staff and the park could not have been any better. Campgrounds were great. I would like to see them add an enclosed pavilion at some time. I will also be glad when the road construction is finished as it is a little hard to return to I-40. Was it worth it? YES. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stopped there coming down westbound from the Smoky Mountains National Park. This place is quiet even if it is near a main road. Owners are friendly. The restrooms and showers are ultra clean. Lots of trees in the campground but bushes between sites would be great for a little privacy. We would stop there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground. Good location, spacious sites, very clean restroom/showers. The staff was very friendly and helpful with guiding us into our spot. The only downer was no fire rings, but it was rainy and cold when we were there. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This beautiful campsite is on the river in the heart of town. The level sites are well spaced and include free cable and wi-fi. There's lots to do in the area and we would come back here for a week's vacation. Down the street is a drive through automatic motorhome wash which we haven't seen before. We'll try it on our way out of town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our second trip to the Gatlinburg area where we stayed for 2 nights. The park is actually a little off the road and that was very nice for the peace and quiet we like when camping. The sites were very close together, which wasn't optimal, and there weren't very many trees. We usually request shady sites. The park wasn't full, so we didn't have someone right next to us, which made it better. The restrooms and showers were excellent, clean and nicely organized. The check-in person the next morning seemed to have no idea that we changed to a spot next to the one we were assigned, and she didn't have a clue who we were or if we had a reservation, completely misspelled our name despite the fact that I spelled it repeatedly for her on the phone. This park is convenient for Gatlinburg sites, convenient for the interstate and quiet. It is clean and has all the amenities we usually need and want in a park and was just fine for a couple days stop. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice level park. It is all gravel with grass patio areas, but not dusty at all. Pool and park are decent. Only complaint is that it is directly across from a helicopter tour company, but you get used to them. It's up away from the action...but also away from the traffic. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Clean and pleasant with level sites. Short drive to Pigeon Forge, etc.,and out of the worst of the traffic. Campground was having a problem with cable. Limited channels. Could do without the U-turn leaving. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Sites real nice and level.Staff nice and friendly. Bath house and rest rooms located up hill across from office they where all pretty clean but a long walk from the campsites. Wifi signal great, pool all ready closed. Awful entrance coming from Sevierville, had to go pass the campground and make a u turn, when we left we needed to go to 1-40, so had to go right and make a u turn, no crossover, really bad. The campground is located to far away from any main attractions if you want to go to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and the National park. It's a terrible drive, just to far and the traffic is terrible. If you want to go to the Smokey Mts and just relax and not do nothing it would be a nice place to stay. From what I saw, the store was stocked with a limited supply of merchandise. I can not recommend staying here if you want to go to Dollywood or any shows, etc, as the drive will get you. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our 2nd time at Ripplin Waters. We truly enjoy this campground. Mostly because you do not have to deal with the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg traffic just to get to your campground. We used to stay in Pigeon Forge but have decided we prefer Ripplin Waters. We have learned some backroads to get into town when we want and it is must easier to drive without a trailer when picking some of the less traveled roads. The only thing that I would say is bad is the left turn when you are leaving and needing to go back to I-40. You have to go right and make a U-Turn. But my husband says that is not a problem for him, after all he is driving. Park is clean and even though there are some children, it is still quiet. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice park, friendly, helpful staff. Sites were all clean and nicely landscaped, most are average size for a commercial campground. Restrooms and showers were very clean but are located across from campground office and store and are a good walk from most camp sites. Wifi available but I don't know how well it works since I don't have a need for it. Some seasonal campers in park but all sites were well kept with no junk etc. Very good park if you want to stay out of the worst of the crowds in the Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg area. Be warned, if you stay on a peak weekend, the drive into these area may take an hour or more because of heavy traffic. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had a nice back-in spot on the river. We stayed during the week in early June and found more seniors than families, which was our intent. This park has everything you would want in an RV resort. Bathhouse and laundries located around the park were very nice and clean. Great area on the river for pets to walk and they even had a poo bag dispenser and disposal station along the river. However, no scenery or view other than the river. Blue Heron fishing, ducks, geese and very friendly robins. Every thing worked as it should except we couldn't figure out the WiFi which was no big deal. Great for kids. They were building a new specialty pool called Lazy River for the kids to float on tubes. Nice amenities. Close to everything that this vacation mecca has to offer. We will return soon. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here 11 days for a rally and sightseeing in the area. The park is older and needs some maintenance, but we enjoyed our stay. The electric was strong and steady, water pressure good. The park was quiet and we had pretty good Verizon cell and broadband service. The Wi-Fi was sometimes spotty, but usable most of the time. The office staff was friendly and helpful and rally facilities good. We would stay here again. Cost is based on rally discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a park in progress, with partially graveled, partially paved sites and interior roads. The office staff was extremely pleasant and helpful, and the park is centrally located to all attractions. With this being said, we soon found out there were many "full timers" with permanent gardens, and storage buildings. We had a problem with the electricity, it seems that at peak times you cannot use both air conditioners as it overloads the campgrounds system and trips the units breakers ( the cg was less than half full). The rock quarry located behind the park was blasting and needless to say everything got dusted. WiFi was not working, but we did have our own. Cable TV went off after 10 PM or so, states we were out of range. We will not camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice large park. Excellent location. Our site was not level but livable. The utility post was located in such a way that with my driver side LR slide out I could not open my vertical lift basement doors. The sewer pipe top was 8 inches above ground so dumping tanks was a challenge. We would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here 17 days while attending back-to-back rallies. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Gravel sites were mostly level and clean. WiFi was spotty and could be a little stronger, but we do not rate parks on their WiFi as we feel a traveler that needs Internet should have their own mode of connection. Will stay here again if possible. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy entry from the very busy road out front. Steep grade leading down to the campground. Plenty of space for check-in. Very friendly personnel in office during check-in. Only the perimeter road is paved. All interior roads are gravel. Most of the sites are gravel with the exception of those occupied by long-term residents. Gravel sites not completely level. Sites have sewer hook-ups at the back and mid point for easy connections regardless of RV type. Nice touch. High water pressure. Good cable. Wi-Fi is sporadic. Found ourselves continually having to switch between multiple Wi-Fi channels that they offer. When connected, signal strength wasn't very strong, but acceptable. Voltage at pedestal was very low. Consistently 108 volts throughout stay. Luckily, we didn't need our a/c this time of year. But our breakers would trip several times a day when using 2 appliances at once. Ground covered with leaves due to time of year. No problem with that. The problem was with ground maintenance guys who rode around on mowers chopping up the leaves and blowing the mess around. If they're not going to rake them up, just leave them alone! Leaf dust and debris from their mowing was all over everything we had outside. Campground is close to everything in the area. Noise from roads in front and behind the campground can be heard at all hours. The appeal of this campground is its proximity to the tourist activities of the entire area. It's a large campground and big rig friendly. Nothing flashy, but provides visitors with full hook-ups, cable, Wi-Fi and access to fun. We would stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed here for the last 4 years first part of November. This year will be the last. When we got to our site, someone was already in it. A call to the office, we were told not possible, we must be at wrong site. The site they moved us to was very un-level, the fire pit was full of cig butts and trash, grounds staff was non-existent. The office staff seem to not care if you were staying there or not. Next year we will be somewhere else. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We selected this campground because they advertised they had WI-FI internet access. We have 2 laptops an ipad, two wi-fi phones and a Wii, none of which would connect to the internet. We stayed here 4 days and called every day they always promised they would look into it, but never even tried until the last day of our stay and then still no internet, we had to use our Verizon data plan to gain access to the internet and most of the time the Verizon signal was weak. The sites are gravel and not level, The staff is unfriendly. there are too many nice campgrounds around Pigeon Forge to ever fool with this campground again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had a rally here. Great site and easy registration, too. Got the rally price even though we came in early. The catering staff in the rally building was excellent as was the camp group. Good power, water and strong WiFi at the sites the one issue is that the park is very flat and drainage is an issue in heavy rains. The combat it by putting a lot of gravel on the sites and the roads that flood. It works but it is odd to see your coach tires dropping three inches into the fresh gravel. In a couple weeks the sites will be packed down as they put it on for first the Samboree and then our rally. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Looks aren't everything. This park is immaculate. The grounds are kept. As a matter of fact I was sleeping and heard a mower come across our site. We went on a "car show" week so we were forced into picking the "TOP SPOT" #15. The most expensive and nicest spot they claim. But, what they don't tell you that just behind the nice tree wall perimeter is a concrete business, a rock quarry of some sort, and a highway. The little "river" was kind of neat, and got really wide after a full night of rain. Also, we were told as we were setting up that no dog pens were allowed. We didn't read that on the website when we were reserving. Because we had seen a couple of others that did not allow and we stayed away from those. We were stuck because of the car thing being in town, so we could not move. A staffer came down to the site to act like he may let us keep our non-evasive fence, but did not. Rules are rules, but need to be posted clearly! The campground was loud, and not peaceful at all. Make sure you ask about all the rules before reserving in a way over priced campground. We will not be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Excellent campground. Very nice staff that quickly sent someone to trim limbs. Really nice riverfront sites, but others seemed small. Very reasonable prices for location and amenities. Good location if you take Collier to Veterans to avoid traffic. We will definitely stay hear again if/when we visit Gatlinburg. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park, but poor drainage when it rains - and it rained a lot when we were there. Staff not very friendly and not willing to accommodate change. Wi-Fi poor (probably because there were too many people trying to use it at once). We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This a large campground with one paved loop, which is nice for biking and walking.Two pools one for kids with splash tree. A hot tub next to the pools. Some of the river sites do not have access but the others do. The river water was not clear but we kept getting allot of heavy rains, one even caused the river to rise some 8 inches. Sites have lots of room and grass areas. Some spots have more shade than the others. Easy access to and from the park. Cable was good, WiFi is ok but we were close to one of the buildings! Water pressure is good and we never had any problems with power even in the rain storms!! Nice family campground, we would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is another RVC park in which we stayed and probably not our favorite. It was very crowded. We could only get a back in site (no reservations) which became challenging because of the car in front of us overflowed his space slightly. However, the back in site was nice with a green patch of grass between us and the other rigs. We have a 5th wheel and it is nice not to look in our neighbor’s window when using a back in. The staff was accommodating, but I wouldn’t say they went out of their way to assist you. They were always busy with their computers when I entered the office. It is a perfect stop for visiting the Great Smoky Mountains, Dollywood, and Gatlinburg. You wouldn’t want to drive much further on the main road with a rig (very, very crowded). We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
River Plantation is a very nice campground. Sites are spacious. The kids enjoyed the pool and the mushroom fountain. We rented a golf cart and enjoyed cruising the campground. The Sevierville area has a lot of activities and attractions. For us, River Plantation is our favorite campground in the Smoky Mountain area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is clean and very nice. Paved entrance road, paved road around sites, gravel on sites, nice concrete patio. Nice friendly staff. Small store inside check in area but adequate. Nice pool and kiddie pool, game room and work out room (weight room is very nice). A few cabins but have not seen inside them. Restrooms are nice and were clean. Gas fire place outside the check in office with rocking chairs adds a nice place to sit in the evenings. As stated before in other reviews, this is a tourist area and traffic is VERY busy. No fault of campground. Many times we come here there is a motor home rally or something going on but everyone is nice and you hardly notice it's a rally or get together. We will come back again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Once you get here, the campground is spacious, meticulously maintained with large sites and very quiet. We didn’t use the bathrooms or laundry room, so we can’t comment. I was put off by the heavy traffic and heavily commercialized highway (US 441 also named Parkway) leading to the campground. Cross-traffic turns are nearly impossible if not down-right hazardous. Having said all that—if Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg are your destination this is a very nice campground—one of the 3 best I have ever used. If you are not looking for this as a tourist destination, I recommend you pass on by to find someplace else for a stay. We stayed here a week to visit the Great Smokey Mountains—the commercialized development took us by surprise or we might have found another way to access the Park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Gravel sites and roads except for entry and main circulation around site. Gravel roads are washed gravel and well compacted and don't produce high levels of dust nor mud when raining. Sites are reasonably wide, very long and level. Trees could be a problem for some sites for satellite reception. There are concrete patios but not all are in good condition. Permanent resident sites are well kept and do not distract from the park. Several pet areas were convenient to our site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our favorite "local" campground. The campground is kept clean, staff is helpful and friendly, it's very close to the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg and all the activities available in that area. Good WiFi available. We usually camp here several times a year. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Riverside site #418 was $27/day with Good Sam discount. Sites are fairly close together, with a grassy area and at least 1 shade tree. Mostly back in, some with a river view. Has full hook ups. Didn't look at the bathrooms. Laundry was clean with 4 washers/dryers with at least 2 laundry buildings. Pets are welcome. Many areas to walk the dogs with waste bags and garbage cans available. Wi-Fi is free. Great connection and fast. Verizon, Sprint internet was good. Verizon, AT&T phone was good. No book exchange. Tourist town. Lots of good and bad restaurants, lots of entertainment. Great Smoky Mountain trails fairly close. This is a huge park with 400 sites. Most are back in. The river view isn't really worth it because it is mainly blocked by trees. But the river side sites have a lot of open grassy area behind the site. We were here in the winter, so the park looked like a parking lot with grass patches. But in the summer, this place is probably beautiful. The majority of the sites have TWO shade trees, 1 in front and 1 in back. Cement patio with picnic table. Fire ring. Some sites all cement, but the crushed gravel sites seem level and clean also. Great park for rallys. There is a large pavilion with picnic tables and also a conference center. If in the area again, I would return. But there seems to be a few other decent campgrounds in area further away from the highway. This campground is "secluded" in between two highways, but is not noisy. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A short drive from Gatlinburg and entrance to the Smokies, but close to Pigeon Forge attractions and restaurants. Quiet at night. Easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. We will definitely return to this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
With our Good Sam Discount it only cost us $25.20/night. It is a GREAT campground. It is located off the main drag in Sieverville along a nice river. There are large grassy site there for extra $$. The regular site we had was nice, level and had adequate space between our neighbors. Full hookups, 50 Amp/water and two (2) sewer line options at each site to hook up the sewer hose. Each site had a campfire ring. The new office had a well stocked campstore and a nice firepit outside with cable TV for some fall football watching on a bigger screen. The campground was not far from the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains NP. This was a great find and far better than the other two in Pigeon Forge that we looked at while we were there. We will be back. We camped in a 40' MH. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a wonderful park. We had difficulties finding it, but the office staff guided me there on my cell phone. The staff were very friendly. The restrooms were very clean as was the laundry area. Lots of space between sites. Good W-Fi and cable. Would definitely stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Was a nice place to stay. Plenty of shady sites. Nice lake area. We stayed here unknowingly during hot rod car weekend and it was very busy on the roads,but were told it becomes a ghost town when car weekend was over so would check out the city's tourism calender before going again. Would stay here again if in the area or passing through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is surrounded by a paved drive with all gravel internal drive ways and level gravel pads unless you are over 75 feet long. The 75 foot motor homes with stacker trailers did use jacks on the motor home's front wheels. We had a pull through gravel pad. Concrete was available. We have a 36 foot motor home with a toad and did not have to unhook. Great grassy space between the pads. Water pressure was 40 PSI and our SurgeGuard had no faults indicated. Great speed on the WiFi. Cable TV was great. There is a nicely mowed, wide walkway by the Little Pigeon river that borders the park. Maybe it was the time of the year, but we experienced no bugs, flies or mosquitoes. Most all of the RVs were newer motor homes or fivers. A few must have been in the $1 million dollar range. The staff was courteous and business-like. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent park near all the Pigeon Forge/Sevierville/Gatlinburg action. Brand new office/store, freshly paved road surrounds the campground exterior (rest are graveled including sites). Just enough rules to make it pleasant to stay here without being too restricted. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Have stayed here several times and will continue to do so. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The campground is very nice with large gravel sites and is definitely big rig friendly. The staff is very nice. The pool and restrooms are very clean. The campground is far enough off the road to be really quiet. You are just minutes from everything. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Paid a group rate of $28.50, plus 11.75% tax or $31.85 for a FHU site with cable and Wi-Fi. A very nice park. Our site was a back in and we had a slight grade. There were no water problems. Overall the campground was very clean and in very good repair. The Wi-Fi was spotty speed wise, but our Verizon was 4G and fast. We enjoyed our 7 night stay. There is a ton of things to see and do in this area. No problem with grades getting into or out of this park. A lot of former posts on puddles, but we drove by a lot of campgrounds that had grades into or out of that I would not want to deal with. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy in & out. Concrete patios, gravel sites. Very flat, causing water pools, as it rained the whole time we were there. Bathrooms were nice, as were the employees. Wi-Fi worked great, as did the cable TV. Very nice place to stay away from the hustle and bustle. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice spacious park. The only negative is that it is quite flat so rain runoff can be a problem. Some sites can be under water for days after rainfall and water filled potholes last for days. Beyond that its a great park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park was easy in. Sites where OK. Our pull through was fairly level with crushed gravel as was the roads inside the park. Interior roads could stand some work, lots of potholes. My gripe was the staff at registration. They where more interested in watching the large flat screen TV behind the desk instead of taking my money. After a long day of travel in the rain, I was ready to get parked. Would probably look elsewhere next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Check in was easy and pleasant. The pPark was clean, but needed the grass to be cut. It was rainy the first couple of days, but very pretty the last two days, and no grass cutting was done, so hmmm...Roads are graveled with small pebble gravel. This wasn't an issue for us. This is a park that caters to retirees with oversize motorhomes and dogs who don't know they are dogs. It is a little too stuffy and all about those with money. No, the cost isn't bad, but you definitely pay in other ways! I have never seen so many restrictions! If you go with kids you better find a way to keep them quiet, in there place and behave like Stepford children! And if you take a dog, they better be extremely well behaved! And PLEASE don't let them relieve themselves at your campsite, despite the fact that you may clean up after your dog. I come from a well respected family and raised with the class to hang around the most important of people. My husband, the same, and have raised our children to be on their best behavior. No, we aren't rich, but we are blessed. But here, just being blessed certainly will have you feeling like everyone is looking down on you. I hope to one day be able to travel in a nice RV, but I hope I never get to the point that simple people can't feel comfortable around me, as this place certainly can make you feel! We camp in a high end pop-up, but among what was there, you would have thought it was a shack! We left before our reservations ended and we definitely will NOT come back to this campground! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We liked this park. We had a premium site which was cement and nice but all of the sites were good. There is good room between the sites and they are angled well. Most are pull throughs. The sites were level will good hookups and wide roads. The location in Sevierville seemed to be the best for us. We were there for Rod weekend and the roads from the campground to Gatlinville were packed so it was good to have the campground at the North end of the congestion. The pricing is expensive but on par with everywhere else. We would stay there again We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Still a great campground and no complaints what so ever. Yes, 4 days of rain will make the grass grow and not suited to cut when wet. Some people just have to find something as stated before. Will be back soon. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed here many times but never have seen maintenance so poor. I realize that they have had rain BUT...the grass on our site is a foot high. We have been here 4 days and have not seen a mower in sight. We will not return if something is not done in the next couple of days. We cannot use the fire pit because of the lack of maintenance. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park has some of the largest sites in the Pigeon Forge/Sevierville area. They say they are big-rig friendly and they are. Very helpful staff. Downsides: all of the interior roads and the vast majority of the sites are gravel, so it does get a bit dusty. The Pigeon River does flow behind the campground and some sites are on the river. That's nice, except that the Pigeon River is contaminated and therefore anything but looking is out of the question. River sites are $2 per night extra, but we paid that for the extra room and are glad we did. Next time we are in the area, we will probably stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is always a favorite in this area. Spacious level sites. Right now, it is quiet and peaceful with few campers here but if you want to be here for a holiday like Labor Day, you had better have made reservations early. They pack them in on Holidays. There are a few seasonal permanents but they pretty much have their own little cliche. Close to many stores and restaurants. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Large, level sites; wide roadways; large, well-maintained pools and hot tub; playground; organized activities for all ages. Staff is very friendly and helpful, as are the other campers. Campground rules are clearly posted and strictly enforced, which we like. Very peaceful. This is our first choice of campgrounds in this area. The laundry facility does stay busy, though, so a couple more machines might be a nice addition. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Clean park with wide pull throughs available. I had no trouble with my big rig that was towing. Wi-Fi signal was a little weak and definitely slowed down during high demand. Lot's of trees (had to have them trim some branches that intruded into campsite), but still open enough for satellite signal. My rate was based on a weekly rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground has good level sites. Roads are gravel. Staff is very friendly and helpful. WiFi is poor at best. On a good day, when you can connect, it is like a 100 people going through a dial up modem. WiFi at office is good however. BEWARE OF GPS. Ours tried to take us through a residential area across the main highway from the campground. Would consider returning if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very big rig friendly, only gave an 8 because roads and sites are gravel and there is very little shade. Clean, well kept and most of the sites were fairly level. Staff friendly. Surprisingly quiet, even though it was on a busy highway. A little too far off Interstate for just an overnight stay. I didn't notice a playground for kids, but this is mainly a campground for taking in the local events. Some permanent, but well kept. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Love, love staying here. Best campground in the Smokies. Staff is wonderful. Campground is clean and well kept and close to all of the attractions without being right in the middle of all the traffic and noise. We have been staying here for years with our pets who love all the grass to run and do their business. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very nice campground. Real easy to get into, and out of the sites. Close to all the attractions. The two things we didn't like was unclean, fire pits, and a lot of cigerettes in the camp fire ring. They should have a traffic light at the entrance. The campground was very quiet. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice clean, quiet park, even though there was a large rally here. The only reason we didn't rate it a 10 was it didn't have paved roads. Beautiful setting. Rate was Good Sam rate. Would definitely return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park - We had a level, good power, and good satellite site. It was easy to get in and out. The park has good roads, is clean and well maintained. This was our second visit and we would return again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great campground that is located right before the start of the Madness of Pigeon Forge TN. Pros: Has good sized campsites, free WiFi, a large pool, friendly staff a good location and they allow golf carts. Cons: Most of this campground is gravel and there is no red light at the entrance. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Really enjoyed our stay here. The sites are a decent size and are laid out diagonal to the road which makes your neighbor seem a little farther away. You can feel comfortable bringing any size rig into here. Store just has a few necessities but you can buy anything you want in the local outlet shopping. WiFi was good signal strength even far from office but access was occasionally slow. On busy weekends you probably ought to enjoy the local attractions instead of playing with your laptop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A VERY nice campground, with modern and clean showers and toilets, very decently sized sites; two pools and a hot tub, as well as a friendly staff. Most sites provided shade as well. For the price of $38 a night, the place can't be beat. The only things that kept it from being a 10 were only one table and umbrella at the pool, poor TV reception (OK...who really needs it camping) and narrow bandwidth on the free wireless. The stone roads were fine, prefer them, rather than muddy roads when it rains. We will definitely aim to come back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a large facility with many year round residents. There are plenty trees, and the grounds are well kept. The pull thru sites are a bit narrow, and some have low hanging tree branches. The park advertises internet service, but it was not working on the two occasions that we stayed there. All in all, this is a nice park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We enjoyed our stay here. The staff is friendly, and the park is well maintained. We were in site 123, a long, level pull-through. Good cell service, but the Wi-Fi didn't work well, even though we were very close to the Wi-Fi repeater. There is open Wi-Fi from the real estate development company that is located upstairs from the park office, and we would take our laptop to the front porch and log onto their Wi-Fi. Very convenient to local attractions. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Convenient to most of the Pigeon Forge area. Can be very dusty, even though it rained every day we camped. Would stay here again, but not my first choice. Park was very busy with traffic, hard for the kids to ride bikes, walk, etc., with all the traffic. Also I understand the need for campground rules and security, but I felt like I was constantly being watched by security. They reminded me of Roscoe and Enos hiding behind a bush waiting to catch someone going 8 mph so they could then yell at them to slow down. Facilities are nice and the pool area was adequate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Still one of the top notch campgrounds in the area. Would have given a higher rank if the security people riding around, would stop some of the people who don't recognize the speed limit within the campground. The dust was bad because of all the new gravel in place. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for a week for an Allegro Club Rally. The campground is well laid out with gravel sites and concrete patios. They had just added fresh gravel to the sites so some were a little unlevel but they were leveling sites as needed. I agree with the previous reviewer about the sewer hookups being too high: don't know what they were thinking. Cable TV worked great and Wi-Fi was good most of the time. They have a wonderful dog walk area but you must walk through someone's yard if all of the sites are full which I felt guilty about doing. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice CG. Stayed 1 wk and enjoyed our stay. The check in was the fastest and most professional we have seen yet, as full timers. Sites were good with easy setup and level. Cable had 65 channels. Our only complaint was sewer connections on some sites were too high above the ground which made it a little tricky for dumping. Would stay here again by far the nicest one along RT 441. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park which had all that we needed. We were with a group of Blue Birds and were treated very well as a group and as individuals when we were in the office. The location was good, being right in the middle of shopping restaurants and entertainment. There was some muddy parts of the park at the sites but rain is rain and we dealt with it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
An excellent place to stay, with very nice sites. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
[ 8 / 10 ]
We stay at this CG on a regular basis. Have looked at other cg's in the area, none match up to this one. Roads and campsites in the newer section have not completely compacted yet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a great park. Nice cement pads for picnic tables. Showers were really clean although there's only a curtain, no locking door. Driers worked especially well: 48 minutes actually dried all my clothes. Only complaint were the little dogs left in the neighboring trailers that yapped and howled all day when the owners were out. Would happily stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was our second stay here. Front desk folks were kind to newbies. Sites were clean and well maintained. Easy access and solid hookups. This was a one night stay, but the one before was 3 nights. This site was gravel: the other one "CC's" were concrete. We will stay here again I am sure. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I don't necessarily like to give a bad review, but this place was something else. First they had our reservation for the wrong dates, off by 1 day and couldn't find us in the computer. When that was finally taken care of, we went to our site, a 50a back-in (I had reserved a pull thru but didn't complain). While backing into this gravel site my rig sank 8-10 inches. It took everything our Ford 4X4 diesel dually had to get it in there, while backing our neighbor said they had the same problem and blew their transmission. I went to the office to see about another site and was told that there were none (even though there were empty sites all around). So I decided to tough it out and stay there. Every day the trailer sank deeper and deeper, I used blocks and bottle jacks to try and keep it up. The a/c and refrigerator units were not cooling very well because of the trailer being out of level. Anyway I wrote them and my reply back was how wonderful and popular they are. I was never allowed to speak to the manager, and the kids in the office (need I say more) they probably answered my e-mail too. LOL We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed for week, great time. They have a large pool for children that starts at 0 to 5 foot deep, and a separate pool for adults. Everything was clean and neat. Close to Wal-Mart and other stores. Concert of local singers on Friday night, stopped before ten. Security made regular passes. We will be returning. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There were many kids at this park. Park map showed an adult pool but kids were in both pools. Kids walk and bike right through your site. Premium sites are nice. Sevierville and Pigeon Forge has traffic congestion unlike we have ever seen. Pigeon Forge is a family tourist destination. We recommend visiting the Apple Barn complex. We probably will not return to this area - been there, done that. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great campground. It is our favorite in the Pigeon Forge area. Good location, nice large level sites. The staff is great. We had a river site with a lot of grassy area between the site and river. We camped in a travel trailer and will stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a wonderful park away from the hustle and bustle of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, but still close enough to everything. The staff are very friendly, helpful, and professional. All sites are well maintained. We chose a pull through site near the office and convention center("CC" site) which was spacious - there are only 4 of these type spaces so book early! CC sites offer a concrete patio and landscaping and front a large grassy field yet they are very convenient to the pools and facilities. They offer more "peace and quiet" than the other sites on busy weekends. There are plenty of sites that can accommodate 45 footers and we recommend the CC or the newer back area where there are few trees to obstruct satellite reception. If you like trees, don't worry - they have plenty of cable TV channels, too. There are also cabins with/without kitchens. The only reason we rate this facility "9" is that most of the roads and sites are gravel (premium and the CC sites are paved as is the entrance and check in area). So, don't let our rating discourage you. This place is a gem!!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice campground and centrally located. The only problem I have is the dust. On dry days they will run water trucks to help out against the dust. Each day our cars & motorhomes were covered with dust I also noticed that all campers doesn't pay the same rates. There was 4 campers in our party and we camped together but each one of us paid a different price, I don't understand that. We don't plan on returning We camped here in a Motorhome.
Still one the best campgrounds around the area despite all the negativity from other campers. I love the one about the lady crying about her mutt not being allowed to be caged during freezing temperatures, makes sense to me. NOT. Enjoy what is here or leave. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park has the potential to be a excellent campground if only a little more effort would be put into it. First of all their on-line registration apparently doesn't work well all the time. I made reservations about a month and a half early online but they apparently "didn't take." Just happened to call a week ahead of time to confirm and they had no record of our online reservation (even though I was sent an email). Per the staff member who answered the phone, "The computer registration hasn't worked right since I started here." Luckily they did have a site available. We camped here during "Spring Break" and it seemed to be very busy. I'm not sure why the store was not stocked very well. In the playground and horseshoe pit areas the ground needs to be fixed so you don't have large holes in the ground. Again, little things make a difference and are not hard to fix. As someone else mentioned, there are a lot of permanent sites but they are well maintained. But they need to keep in mind that if they have too many permanent sites is it really a campground or a mobile home park?? Regarding their rules: the only one that I saw being enforced this week was the 7 mph speed limit. Other rules like washing campers and bringing in firewood from out of state seemed to go unnoticed or they didn't care. The river is very pretty; however, there is a concrete company on the other side of the river that it seems to me the county should regulate and make them clean up (trash and wood palates, etc. are falling in the river). We did drive around to quite a few other campgrounds in the area and most were not very desirable. Seems like a lot of negatives but I do think we would camp here again. Large campsites, friendly folks. Just a little TLC needed. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Camped here for the first time in April 2009. Very clean and well taken care of. We had only one complaint...pets! We brought our 70 pound sweet chocolate lab with us on his first camping trip. We brought his tie out and I paid 100 buck for a fold down wire kennel/crate to keep him in at night as he is not potty trained and we don't keep him in the camper. Nowhere on the website does it say that you can't have the kennel or crates. Security quickly came up to us and said we could have the crate. We had to leave him tied out to a tree while we went places. I was afraid someone was gonna come and unhook him and release him. It also dropped to freezing temps while we were there and they wouldn't allow him us to put him in the crate under our slide out to give him shelter from the rain and freezing temps. I will not ever stay at this resort again! We will be staying at Riveredge or Creekside RV park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This park is convenient to Dollywood and Gatlinburg attractions. However, it is kind of shabby. The river sites are all back-ins which means they are really for travel trailers and fifth wheels. There are many permanent residents. There are 4 big rig pull-thru sites near their "convention center" that were an afterthought and are facing the maintenance shed. This is where we were with our bus and car trailer. Most of the park is gravel with some paved sites. Wifi was mediocre; cable worked. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There were two of us in motorhomes and they worked to put us next to each other. We are backed in by the river and it is very nice. It has rain (poured really) the last two days. There is a few spots were the water has puddled but most of the campground is not flooded or puddled. They have good drainage. They have a nice building and a shelter as well. The sites were very nice and spacious. I saw some pull thrus that must me close to 100 foot long with three sewer connections. The campground has multiple free Wi-Fi connection points as well. I am sitting here in the coach writing this and watching the rain fall. They have shaded sites and open sites. The pool was still closed as it was cold still. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park. I used one of their select sites on the river with concrete pad. It was very nice. The personnel are very pleasant and help out on any issues. The bath houses are very clean and up-to-date. It the was very cold here but they kept bath houses very warm. They take care of all landscaping on daily basis. The only negative I have is the noise from trucks. On the week days there is some kind of gravel or concrete company across the river. Starting at 7am the dump trucks are rolling in and out. Not a big deal but is a little annoying early in the morning. I would still highly recommend this campground and the river sites. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park set back off major highway. The park interior roads are wide gravel. The sites are about average size the river site we had was easy to back into it was gravel with a concrete pad. The park has a lot of seasonal campers on site most were empty when we were there. The staff is very nice. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is very spacious. We camped the week of Thanksgiving and were not disturbed with the concrete company located nearby. The check-in was efficient and quick. The staff was very helpful and answered our questions. We were given a site with a Bradford Pear tree. For those of you who own these trees you know how beautiful they are but also during the fall how messy they can be when the "pears" begin to fall. We asked to be moved to a site that had no overhang of the tree on our slide. We were promptly given a choice of three different sites and we were able to choose our site. How refreshing to actually have customer service! Our visit was very relaxing we will return again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a large, efficient rv park. It is very clean, sites are level, gravel with concrete patios. There is some grass between sites and around the perimeter of the park. The sites are fairly well spaced but there isn't a lot of landscaping, which can be both good and bad. We had no problem getting our satellite reception, but there's no shade or screening from neighbors. It was not very convenient to get to the dog walking areas, and there was a lot of loose grass to get tracked back in to the rig. We didn't have a lot of interaction with office staff, and we didn't shop in the store there. Navigating the roads was not a problem with our 40' motor home and tow car. It's off the main road a bit, so there isn't a lot of road noise, but there is a rock or cement processing business nearby and they start work pretty early in the morning. We wanted to stay longer, but they were booked up for a holiday weekend. It was convenient to lots of attractions around Pigeon Forge and the Smoky Mountains. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A clean campground with sufficient space at our site. For those who want easy assess to the Pigeon Forge-Gatlinburg shows and attractions, the campground would warrant a 9 or 10. For those who want to spend more time in the Smokies and the smaller town in the area, the traffic on the main north-south drive can be frustrating. Since we are in the second group, we would have been happier in a less busy location. That being said, we stayed here for four weeks and were pleased with the site, the staff, and the facilities. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A great park. Sites were level with a nice concrete patio. The location is ideal to visit the Smokey Mountains. We would highly recommend and will visit again. The bathrooms were very clean! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A nice campground. The staff could be friendlier. We were overall pleased with stay. Pool was closed for season but looked nice. The negatives are the staff weren't overly friendly, the store didn't have hardly any supplies or food in stock, there is a concrete industry next door so there is some noise and dust but not bad, gravel roads were very dusty (very dry when we were here), lots of permanent sites so fills up fast with what's left for travelers. Positives were: nice campground, well kept, bathrooms were clean, near everything (hiking, stores, shows if you want that sort of thing). I had been here once before and was not pleased with the way I was treated (a person that was on the site we had reserved wanted to stay longer so we were moved three times. They put us on another site and then had to move because someone else had reserved it for later that week. The same thing happened later on in the week and we were eventually given the site we had reserved.) This time I saw that happen to someone else. Keep this in mind when you make your reservation. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is the premier destination for the Smokies! As I type, I am using their wireless internet, it is working good. Well priced for the area, a mile from Super Wal-Mart, (why do we always go there first?) but before the main hustle of the area. Roads are gravel, but dust is not too bad. Staff was friendly and it appears that there are many activities on site for kids and adults alike. Bathrooms and laundry rooms were clean and up to date. We will for sure stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This place is the best. Level roomy sites, easy access for big rigs. Excellent cable TV with lots of stations. Wi-Fi was free and worked well for me, although other campers complained the signal was weak. Hookups were well placed and maintained. Nice looking pool and a game room for the kids. Streets and sites are gravel, but well maintained and smooth. Nice patio at each site. Price was reasonable and the staff was nice, but not overly friendly. In my opinion, this is the best campground in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a decent campground with long pull thrus and a decent grassy area at each site. The staff was quite friendly and reasonably helpful. The down side to River Plantation was the awful traffic (which did NOT provide traffic noise at the campground). It was tee shirt store after tee shirt store after outlet center after outlet center. And a "dry county"!! Once we got outside that craziness the area was just beautiful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I really liked this park. Staff was friendly, many nice clean rigs in the park. Nice landscaping. I would rate it a 10 except for the gravel roads that produced a lot of dust. Monthly rates are not offered or else we would have stayed longer. Would stay here again for sure. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice campground. 5 Star rating to us! Staff were very friendly. Strict rules such as speed limits,pets, and golf cart rules enforced. Concrete patios on all sites, fire rings, neatly trimmed grass, and clean facilities. This should be the standard for all campgrounds. Even the wireless internet was free. You can tell that the owners of this campground aim to please. Highly recommend this resort. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice campground and staff goes beyond. This is one of the nicest Good Sams around. They have sorted out some of the seasonals and opened up the choice sites. Wi-Fi worked great and campground was completely full. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice CG will well spaced sites for this area. We had a super site which was nice, however there wasn't any shade. Not sure I would pay the extra next time. Very clean grounds and appears to be a well run park. We will stay here again when in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very nice park, we had a super site, completely paved site, which worked well for us. The pool, hottub, game room, all nice. I wish however, that they would at least pave the main loop around the campground, the white dust from the slag gets on everything from vehicles to carpet..etc. We had a great time, but It doesn't seem to be as nice as the first time we stayed there. We would probably look for something else next time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campgroung used to be a great place to stay but it seems the permanent residents have taken it over it has really gone downhill. You cannot use the hottub for all the kids running and jumping in and out back and forth from the pool to the hottub.It is posted no childen in the hot tub unless supervised by a adult but no one enforces the rules i think the parents just drop the kids off and turn them loose. You can not walk for all the golf carts running around kids driving them, bicycles and car traffic bad ,real small children driving around on them little elec cars its a mess.Loose gravel is really bad. There is just too many perments in the park and they have took it over and think that they own it and you shouldnt be there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is very nice. Its a large park, plenty of room to move around. There is room to bicycle ride. However the gravel can throw you at times. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park. We spent a week here. The staff was very helpful and courteous. They had frequent security patrols and always seemed to stop and ask how things were going. The park was very quiet and peaceful. The only suggestion would be to have a bath house on the left side of the park. I would definitely stay here again! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is our favorite campground in the Pigeon Forge/Sevierville area. Nice big level sites, bath houses always clean. The staff is very helpful. In my opinion it is by far the nicest campground in Pigeon Forge. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I like this park,it is very close to everything, stayed here a week and would return. One comment that we have is the fact that if you want to use the hot tub, you better be prepared to share it with a bunch of kids. Even though the signs clearly state that no kids in the hot tub, they are jumping in and out. Parents and staff seem to let them. I guess that is what happens when there are so many seasonal campers here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was really nice ... if you get a site along the river. We did and were very happy with the size and the view. We walked around and saw that the sites in the middle were a little tight and the fire rings were too close to each other. But that said the park has all the feature, great cable TV good water and a great location. Right close to everything ... shopping, sightseeing, tourist traps all you want. We would definite be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We've stayed here several times. Love the large sites and it's a very clean park. We were a little disappointed this last time, the bathroom near us was closed for renovations the entire 4 days we were there, but this wasn't mentioned to us when we made our reservations or even when we checked in. The game room was also very "hot" - no fans or a/c and a sign on the door said the "door has to remain closed at all times". Otherwise, we really do like this campground & would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park just before you get to all the Pigeon Forge heavy traffic area. Within a mile or two of Walmart, outlet shopping, great restaurants. Park wasn't nearly filled, and it was nice that they didn't put us all together in one section. Nice to have some space between vehicles, and nice of them to provide it since many parks don't. Stayed here in a 37' motorhome and had plenty of room on a level site. Will return. Good Sam rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for two nights for a short visit to Dollywood, which is about 10 miles from the campground. The campground was practically empty. The campground itself is mostly flat. Our site was long, but not very wide by comparison. If we had neighbors, I think the site would have seemed small. It did have a nice concrete pad. I didn't hear any road noise and we didn't camp here on a Saturday, so I can't speak to the previous review. We never did get our cable to work, but we did not contact the office given our short stay. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to a return when the weather is warmer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our first visit to this campground. We had a "signature" riverfront site. Positives: This site was very large, had a lot of space between us and our neighbors and a lot of open space behind our site. Negatives: They neglected to inform us that all the bathhouses except the main one in front were closed. Also, they neglected to inform us that the repeaters for the wifi were turned off meaning WiFi was only available at the front of the campground near the office. And, this was the loudest campground experience we have had yet. There is a busy and noisy road behind the river and the concrete plant was up and running and LOUD very early Saturday morning. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great park, we stayed in the "off season" but the park was clean and very nice. Our only complaint was that the gravel in the sites is very loose and tends to rut and get carried in the coach on your shoes. The grounds are great. The restrooms were clean the park just feels good. Be aware, however, the speed limit is 7 miles per hour, do not go 8. The worst thing about this park is the fact that the Sieverville, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg traffic. Gridlock can occur at anytime, not the parks fault, but be aware that you may only be able to turn right out of the exit. We loved this park, we will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had a pull through site and I think these were bigger than most. We camped here over Thanksgiving and experienced rain and COLD temperatures. My younger son said after a couple hours of being at the park that he wanted to come back during the summer. The park had a basketball court, game-room, horseshoes, and many grassy areas. (The boys and my husband kicked around the soccer ball one evening!) The roads are gravel and we had a nice concrete pad. Cable was good and the internet was better than most CG's. Being there on a holiday, the traffic was awful, but would be no matter where you stayed. There was a Christmas program at the park on Saturday night, but we did not attend since the Alabama vs. Auburn game was on ESPN. This CG does have designated areas to carry your pet to potty, with bags, and you are asked to only let your pet use this area and not other areas of the CG. I would enjoy camping here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice park with fairly large sites for the area. Shower house and restrooms were well maintained and clean. Quite a bit to do in the campground even in cold weather with a game room and conference center with entertainment while we were there. Somewhat messy with a lot of dirt and dust from the gravel roads in the park. Riverfront sites have lots of room behind the campers going to the river. Two dog walking areas with bags provided for clean up. The campground does not allow pens which we usually use for our small dog when we are at the camper, so we probably will not return even though we rate the campground as very good otherwise. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great park, however, pick your times you visit this area, the traffic is incredible, seems to always be backed up. No fault of the park but it would be nice if they had a traffic light at their entrance. The WiFi worked as good as any park I have ever been at. They seem to have three antenna's for you to connect to and we were back on the river and had a great signal. Nice clean big park, would go there again if we go back to Gatlinburg area for a vacation. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Just returned from a 2 night stay here and it was great. Great sites with full hookups concrete pad with picnic table, fire ring at site, cable TV. Well groomed campground all around. Staff extremely nice and helpful when needed. Great location to all of major attractions in area. Arcade area for children was only down side as most games were old and inoperable. Pools were drained so cannot comment on that. Will return again in future for sure. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A very nice RV park with several hundred sites. The sites aren't too close together and are angled for good privacy. The pads and roads are gravel, but there are cement patios and grass between the sites. There are some trees; but, they were very accommodating in the office to give us one of the numerous sites where satellite reception isn't a problem. There is a little noise from a nearby quarry - machinery humming, trucks growling, and backup beepers beeping. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We would rate this a 10, but our cable was out one night (seemed to be an entire campground problem). There was no one to fix it. Our site #128 was a long, level pull through. It was next to the picnic pavilion and trash dumpsters. While it was not a problem while we were there I could see if a party was going on, it could have been. We'd stay there again, but would ask for a different site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I'd have to say this is one of my favorite rv parks. We stayed here for 2 weeks with easy access to the pigeon forge strip. The pool was very clean along with the whole entire campground. Very friendly staff . The river isnt a swimming type river as it has a muddy bottom to it but, it was great for fishing. We had a river front site and every morning would go out with chairs, and fish. I'm not a fishing expert but I caught something every day! Its also very level and has nice patios at site. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here on a recommendation, and I was very glad I took the recommendation. The place was extremely clean, the gravel roads were watered daily to keep the dust at a minimum, we stayed in the "older half" and had huge shade trees, which were very welcome since the temps in August were in the HIGH 90's. The park is located on the Pigeon Forge/Sevierville border so it is close to the action in Pigeon Forge as well as Sevierville. The sites are wide, perhaps even twice as wide as the sites found in parks closer to town. I found that the WiFi had several nodes placed around the park, and never had a problem getting access. If I could find any fault, it would be that the trolley does not run thru the park, but neither does normal traffic, unlike a couple parks in Pigeon Forge. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground was nice but could use some more shade trees. We had a site right on the river which was nice as the dog walk is right along the banks here. On Friday night we did have an Elvis impersonator who put on a show, its was great. The campground is right in the middle of, and handy to all the tourist points of interest. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a nice RV park along the banks of the Little Pigeon River. Sites are not as close together as in most private parks. It also has a few cabins. All sites are level and have full service including a large selection of cable TV channels. Free WiFi throughout the park. Interior roads and sites are gravel and were in good repair. Two pools, one an "adult only," and a jacuzzi. Excellent parking for check-in which was quick and easy. The entrance to this park is off Hwy 441, the "main drag," which makes it very convenient to local businesses yet the setting in the park is quiet and peaceful but we have had the windows closed and the A/C on. Lots of grass and trees throughout the park. If this park had paved roads and sites, I would rate it 10. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great campground and people were very friendly and helpful. Restrooms were good as far as clean goes but very accommodating with seperate showers and great heat. Many campers with dogs that barked at night for a while. Overall the six nights were quiet and restful. The fire pits are way too close to the campers though and can provide a smoky situation especially in the summer. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
WOW! Super Nice Campground! Nothing bad about this park except somewhat difficult to turn left out of. Wi-Fi Internet at the time was $5 a day which I did not think was bad, after all when your on vacation you tend to pay more for things than normal anyway. Now I have heard that WiFi is free, that makes the park even better. Would love to store my travel trailer there but unfortunatealy they are to capacity on storage. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was an excellent rv park; we had signature site 16; the only bad thing I can say is the slag place across the river ran from 7 am to early evening and the trucks were loud..If that does'nt bother you; you will have a great time! I'm sure the rest of the park could probably not hear it as well as the row we were in and there are signature sites on the other end of the campground also... Also, If you think this is out in the country it is not. It is right in the middle of Seiversville and route 441 is very busy, (it is the route to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg). Everything about the park was very neat, clean and tidy; the pool was clean and the office folks friendly. We would definitely stay again, only on the other side of the campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were way impressed with the assistance given by the front desk personnel on several issues. This park is clean, spacious, and quiet. It is definitely a family campground. All bathrooms were clean and kept up very well. It was apparent that there were upgrades being made very recently in some of the restrooms/shower areas. We had a very pleasant stay. The only bad part of our stay is the WiFi. It would have cost five dollars a day to use the wifi through the park. We went to Hampton Inn and offered to make a donation to the breakfast area waitress to use the Wifi and they were more than happy to have us. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We love this park! We have camped her numerous times. Consistently clean facilities, courteous attendants and manicured grounds. We reserved a riverfront site and loved it! The dog walk areas provide pickup bags and disposal facilities. Great family atmosphere. We will be back!!! The campground guests enforce the 7mph speed limit. I deservingly got yelled at for my lead foot!!! Little shade in the entire park!! Wi-fi is very-very pricy!!! All sites are level. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We camped on one of their signature sites, #116. We had some rain while we were there, so we really appreciated the concrete slab. The only complaint we had with the site was the location of the electric, cable, and water hookups. They were closer to the front of the site rather than the rear making it difficult to position the MH so our parked car was not an obstruction. The problem could have been avoided had we had a longer cable TV cord but then we might have had to use an extension for power. We loved the view of the river and the nice fire ring. The site was perfectly level and landscaped nicely. We visited in December so we did not use many of the amenities; however we did walk around the campground and found the bath houses and pool area to be very nice. The only other negative is the difficulty of making a left turn onto 441 from the campground. Traffic was not too bad while we were there but we could see it being very difficult during peak season traffic. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice park - level parking gravel spaces w/lots of grass between lots - small concrete patio, with fire pit and picnic table - very clean. However, the staff is not exceptionally friendly and are selective on how they enforce their "rules". For example, dog pens are not allowed - but a dog pen that is used for a "baby" is allowed. I don't see the difference. WiFi is independently billed - we signed up for a week and for 1 1/2 days were not able to get connected. The first day this happed, I called the contact person and was then able to connect. The second day, the contact person was "out of the office" - I called the emergency number he gave me and left a message. I am still waiting for an answer! There are two laundry facilities with only 3 washers and dryers in each - for a park this size it is very inadequate. The two dumpsters are located quite a ways from our parking spot - not easy to get rid of trash. There are two sections of the park - the old section has nice trees and the new section, where we stayed, has a few small trees that provide no shade. The exit from the park is onto a VERY busy highway - hazardous and very time consuming. No traffic light. Within 1/4 mile, there is a rock quarry and the noise continues 24 hours a day with "back-up" beepers on trucks constantly. We would probably not stay here again - too many other parks to choose from in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent campground. We stayed here for 4 days in August 2005. Restroom/Shower are was super clean. Pool/Hot Tub area was also clean and organized. No complaints from the wife or myself. We had site #66 with W/E/S & cable hookup. The concrete pad under the awning was a nice addition too. I highly recommend this campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Peaceful campground in valley on Parkway near Pigeon Forge area. Convenient to all area attractions. Extra wide and spacious sites with concrete patios. White rock roads can get dusty in dry periods. Beautiful pool area with two pools and hot tub. Nice playground area. New conference center. We have stayed here numerous times and will return whenever we have opportunity to visit this area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here on Memorial Day weekend and loved the campground. We had a river front site that was very spacious. There is a large grassy area between your camper and the river. It is a very well maintained park with nice facilities. We did hear some noise from the cement plant, but nothing even near bothersome. We were in the old section that had plenty of shade. This is probably one of my most favorite places to camp. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pros: wide sites, fire rings Cons: Difficult left turn into campground and difficult left turn (to town) leaving campground--no light, multi-lanes, and much traffic. On an often-sluggish river, not creek, many mosquitos. All gravel roads. Campers selling stuff, from RV's, even at entrance to campground! Construction company on other side of small river--loud in morning. Storage of many RV's on site and visible. Paid for wi-fi, but unable to receive signal. Nasty attitude at check-in. We've stayed here for years. Never a problem. We'd noticed a six person site limit and asked about it. (We're family of 4 adults, 4 kids). Were told: "that's to keep out spring-breakers /college-kids." This time at check-in, manager was nasty. Shocked at family size. Patronizing. Asked what we were camping in (as if expecting junky converted school bus?) Were then told not to make noise! Disappointing way to be treated after a long-days drive, especially as long-term customers. Manager showed complete lack of hospitality--even hostility. We've never had an incident here at all and confirmed this by subsequent call to owner. Owner was responsive (promptly returning my call) and did disagree with manager's behavior, but is not on-site. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a pleasant enough family-oriented campground that seems to have an older section and a newer section. As a matter of fact, there seems to be quite a lot of newness going on. There is a building that looks new and another large new building is going up. The roads are old pavement covered with gravel in the front and fresh gravel in a newer rear section. Some of the gravel in that newer section, on both the roads and the sites, is a litle thick and can get quite soft, but it looked as though they were starting to pour some concrete sites in the last rows. Maybe shades of better things to come as our soft-gravel site made it tougher than it should have been to get level. Although sites do have concrete patios, picnic tables and two sewer hook-ups, the water and electric connections seemed inconveniently placed. Another recent addition is WiFi, but they charge extra for it. Everything was clean and the staff were pleasant. It's nice to see a place that seems to be interested in re-investing in itself instead of just taking profits off the top. The potential to be an even better place to stay is certainly within reach. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed during the Thanksgiving holidays 2004. Everything went smooth with reservations and the staff was friendly. Sites were nice and were easy to back into and I have a 40ft coach. They had a good many pull throughs as well. Sites were level and clean. While we didn't use the pool facility, it looked very clean and nice. The campground was nice but not the most scenic place and the water pressure was pretty low. Didn't seem to bother anybody as they were sold out. Would definitely come back or recommend this campground. Oh by the way we did not hear any noise from the plant across the river. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is a nice campgground. Roads are gravel but in excellent shape. Park is well kept and
clean. Had a few dog walk areas located around park, and each had a dispenser for "bags" along with a trash can. We camped on the river, and did notice some
noise from the road on other side, but not enough to disturb us. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 8 / 10 ]
Nice park, dusty gravel roads. Excellent facilities and monthly campers are well kept. Campground close to attractions, but out of the way enough to be quiet. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here for a short visit. The Park is very nice. We will be back. Our only complaint was that there was no water pressure. The overall campground was great. The people were very nice and so was the staff. We really enjoyed the Sunday School Service. It's location was a plus too. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 5 / 10 ]
We thought this park was great. Very convenient to all attractions and quiet. We didnt
hear any noise from the cement plant and we werent parked that far from the river sites. We will definitely be back again next year. The sites were perfect for a big rig with three slides and an internet dish. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 8 / 10 ]
I have to dissagree with most of the other reviews. We stayed on one of the river front
lots and it was very noisy. At 4:30 every morning, the cement plant just on the other of this small river, starts their operation. You can hear cement trucks and 18- wheelers all morning. The people in the office are very friendly until they get your money and then develop a real attitude. They had a problem with one of their pools, so instead of closing just that one, they closed both pools and said you could go down the street to a motel to swim. We will never go back to this place. There are a lot better campgrounds in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.

I think this park is excellent. With over 300 sites, it was the quietest campground I have ever been too. They have 2 swimming pools and a hot tub. The sites were very spacious for this area. We were in the old section where there was lots of grass and shady areas. However they have added and are currently adding new sites. This area does not have trees. They do have sites on Little Pigeon River. You do have to make reservations far in advance for these. They have entertainment in the pavilion 2-3 times a week. Being in this area several times and having stayed at other campgrounds, I was totally impressed with the overall quality of this campground. The owners truly take pride and care in their CG. Thank you for a wonderful week! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Great Campground for going to Pigeon Forge. You are far enough out to have a good time
and close enough to avoid a lot of the traffic. Two Pools. All the staff are very friendly. For those that don't like to tow their camper they offer camper storage there and you can call ahead of time to have them pull your camper to your spot. Reservations are a must though. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Add $2.50 for each extra kid (bith adults free). Stayed there during Easter week which is
considered "in season". When we got there most of the summer facilities were closed (pool, etc). Main bath house was under construction. The campground is used for RV storage during the winter months, and most of the stored RV's were still sitting there parked one on top the other inter-mingled with the active campsites. Very little shade if any. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

The $18 rate was during off-season, with one extra person and the Good Sam discount. The people were very friendly. There was a small playground (for smaller children) and a concrete basketball area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice Park We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 10 / 10 ]
Sites are very level and easy to pull through or back in. The older part of the park is shaded, the newer part has new trees planted, so it will be a few years before they are as shaded. Grounds are very well maintained and they are adding several new sites. Look for this place to go over 300 sites. Very well located right off the main road (441) between Sevierville and Pigeon Forge. Also only 20 miles from the
Smoky Mountain Natl. Park and 15 from Gatlinburg. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful park stayed there 4 nights really enjoyed this park. Beautiful 2 pools large Hot Tub really well kept park. Free Cable TV great place to fish in river. Hated to leave. Camp there in May 2003 and going back in June. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have a 43 foot RV and always like to get big rig sites. The campground is easy on and off and has an automatic signal to get you in and out of the facility. Staff is always friendly. We have stayed there many times and it is a favorite. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Friendly helpful staff. Great facilities. Large pull through sites, well maintained, good interior roads, lovely riverside sites, good pet area. Very convenient to I-40. Very reasonable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed two nights, in site 17. It was a level, gravel site, backed right up to the river and all utilities worked well. Wi-Fi also worked fair to good. The site was nicely shaded, but we were able to get our DirecTV dish working. We used the laundry facilities and they were clean and worked well. The staff was friendly and we would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice, clean park. Very nice staff. Bathroom and showers very clean. Only problem is only one bathroom ( 2 toilets ) for the large area we stayed in. For most campers it will be a long walk, as it is at the far end, not centrally located. And, the most direct path has a cable across it, making the long walk longer, as you have to walk all the way around to the other side to enter . Also, toilet stalls have no lock and the 2 showers only have 1 clothes hook each. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very good campground with friendly staff to use as base for exploring the area. We were in the area during the week and local schools were still in session so it was a little less crowded than normal. Easy access for big rigs with plenty of pull thru sites, mostly gravel sites. Utilities worked well and TV reception with an antenna was good. If you are just passing thru, this is a good choice since it is close to I-40 for easy access. Christian atmosphere with church services on Sunday. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rating drops if you are NOT riverside. Discounts: Good Sam Sites: All sites are close together. Most have a shade tree. The riverside sites have a huge grassy area leading to the river, so your site fFels larger. FHU, bathrooms clean, pets welcome, pand lenty of area to walk the dogs, although they do have a specified dog walk area. WiFi worked well, satellite easy access to open sky, Verizon and AT&T cell good. Mail delivery accepted. Plenty to do in Sevierville. Very touristy area. We were on the outskirts of town, so not so bad. We chose this park because all the other local parks were around $50./night. Riverside Park owners prefer to keep their prices low as long as possible. Very nice owners. We stayed two weeks, then decided to add a week. We then had to cancel the extra week and they gave a full refund, no questions asked. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The good: beautiful location (river on one side, view of the Smoky's on the other), nice level sites, wonderful staff (the best we've ever run across), area activities, and beauty. The bad: 5mph speed limit on a LONG campground road to the sites takes time. The rate shown includes discounts for a 3-week stay. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is really a nice park. Access was easy to get in and out. Sites were level and longer than normal. They were a little narrow with about 12 feet between sites. The park was clean and well maintained. The staff was very friendly and helpful. All utilities worked fine and the cable TV was great. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stopped through on our way to Mount Airy and had reserved two spaces on the return trip. Nice park. Religious theme and presence. Sites are okay, level, Wi-Fi worked well. Cable channels limited. The main problem with the park is the traffic in October. The office staff said that is just the way it is in October. It took us 30 minutes to go 4 miles to the park. You have to take an alternative route to the Walmart or sit in traffic forever. We did not even go anywhere after crawling in the traffic. The highway is being widened, but did not look like they had been recently working on it. Would have given the park an 8 were it not for the traffic. We canceled our reservations for the return for that reason. It is a very high tourism area. We prefer scenery to tourist destinations. They have a one week cancellation policy and we canceled 5 days early so we were not refunded our deposit. I think that is too stiff of a policy considering they would have no trouble filling the space this time of year. Would not stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Clean, large RV park. Sites are fairly narrow, but decent in length. Very clean with daily pick up of trash. Utilities worked well including the Wi-Fi. Not very many washers/dryers and quite expensive to use. Even though the temperature was in the 80's the pool was closed so not much in the way of available activities. Staff friendly and professional. Area close to Great Smokey Mountain Park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is very clean. The staff was very polite and helpful. Access is easy to get in and out and close to the exit so as to avoid the traffic. Only stayed one might passing through, but will be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice campground on the outer edge of Sevierville. This is a good thing because when you leave on Sunday you're already ahead of the march out of Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge. We had a pull through site, easy to access and the utilities worked great. Cable TV service on site. My only regret is that maybe I would have taken one of the back-in sites right on the river. Good place to call home when visiting the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an excellent park for overnight or a long stay. The staff go out of their way to assist. Thought I had a bad cable site, they brought another cable, ran it through the window and cable was picture perfect. Because it's off season they seem to be making an effort not to jam us in, by keeping at least one empty site between campers. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Staff was friendly and helpful. Had a back in site on the river. Site was gravel and level. Definitely will come back again. Close to the Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg but far enough away to avoid to crowds. Highway is being widened so traffic is a bit of a mess for the next year or so. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Best choice if you wish to avoid the traffic and congestion of the Gatlinburg area. Cars were bumper to bumper leaving as we drove right into the campground South of I 40. Nice campground close to attractions. Had a concrete slab which helped compensate for the gravel drive. Lot was level with easy access with our 43 foot rig. We made a good choice and would return. Nice not to have the road noise you experience with parks near Interstates. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful park, well maintained. Friendly staff who work hard to please the customer. Would have received a 10 except for two things. (1) Wi-Fi service is horrible. (2) Park is anti-cats. I was told unless my pet could be put on a leash, it cannot be outside. Cat do not sit quietly on the end of a leash like dogs. Not sure if the owner hates cats or is ignorant about the difference between cats & dogs. I have 2'x3' nylon carriers for my cats and are only outside when I am, but I was told this is unacceptable. Have never run into this before and it ruined my stay. I was here for a rally so moving to another park was not an option. People put out tents in front of their RVs, so why is a 2'x3' carrier that can be collapsed flat when not in use not allowed? Unreasonable restriction that discriminates against cats. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good location, nice people, clean, good price, easy access to main highway with a red light. It is tight and crowded at the front when you are driving to the back of the park where the "big rig" pull-through sites are. Once back there it was open and easy to get into site. Sites were gravel and a little unlevel. Our motorhome was under 35 feet so we were able to get a spot right on the river in the shade. The restrooms were clean but in need of an update. All in all this is a good place to stay for a few days. We will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Daily rate and they had a deal: buy 6 days get one free. Very nice staff and park. Gets busy on the weekends. River was full of turtles! Wished they had a better deal for monthly RV'ers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice campground right along the Pigeon River. We have stayed here many times and it is a great place to stay, very quiet and everything works great. It is very easy to find and very easy to get into and out of with shaded or non-shaded sites and lots of room around them. We will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed here in the off season so it was very quiet, I'm sure in the warmer months it's a very fun park. The park is very clean and neat and located on the river. There is a lot to do and see in the area so it is in a great location. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice resort CG located in the beautiful Smokey Mountains. It is close to everything you could want in a resort vacation area. The area is very busy as it near so much, but overall it was quiet. We were in a "river side" site, which is more of a creek, but still nice. If traveling to this area again I would not hesitate to stay here again. Friendly staff, a small store that did not have a lot, but there is so much nearby it does not matter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rates reflexs Good Sams. We got here and the grass was very high looks like they have not mowed in weeks. Was very disappointed as I was told this was one of the best park in the area. We stayed 4 days and on the last day they started mowing. No weed eating at all. WILL NOT STAY HERE AGAIN. I can go somewhere cheaper to stay and it a better park. Ask when you make reservations if they mowed or weed-eated lately. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed in the 50 amp area which is sparse of trees (which we like for satellite) but most of the sites in this area are not level. The pull through we stayed in had a hump in the middle and we had to park right in the middle to maintain level. The utilities are at the very back which is best for 5th wheels but made it harder for us. When we checked in the lady who helped us was rude. Overall the park is fine but maybe over rated by other guides. We would not stay here again but only because of our checkin experience. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very disappointed. Site was next to Hwy. with view of loud concrete plant. Picnic table rotten and unable to use. Site also next to dumpsters and RV storage area. Mosquitoes will carry you away. Grill rusted through, pool very small for such a large park. Looks nothing like pic's on website, very congested. 75-80 really nice sites on the back next to river. Other than that don't wast your time. This is more of a retired mobile home park. Not to mention hitches being stolen during the night and police state this was their 3rd time coming to this site. Staff was really nice. This could be a nice place, but need to improve amenities for size. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Here for an RV Rally, and what a great place. We look forward to returning. The sites are very large and shady for the most part. Concrete patio was a nice touch. Gravel roads posed an issue with dust when a few people did not keep to the 7 mph speed limit. The park personal were the best, and the meeting hall out did it self with food and entertainment. One of the best parks we have been in. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice campground. Our motorhome was under 35 feet, or whatever the limit is to get a spot right on the river in the shade. I really liked that. I would have given this campground a ten except that the plug for our cable TV was broken. We complained about it within hours of our arrival, they said they would fix it, and never did. Also, the wireless internet was very sketchy and unreliable, at least at our site. But, we will definitely stay here again. The people that were camping here were all nice. The campground is pet friendly for small dogs. You are close enough to sites in the area but, far enough out not to have major traffic issues. It's just a short hop to get back on I-40. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good location, nice people, clean, good price, easy access to main highway with a red light. It is tight and very crowded at the front when you are driving to the back of the park where the "big rig" pull-through sites are. Once back there it was open and easy to get into site. Sites were gravel and unlevel requiring pads under wheels and jack pads. Also they had an electrical problem with high voltage spikes in the afternoon which they were aware of but had not fixed. Thank heavens for surge protector. They had to replace the breaker when we first arrived on our site. They addressed the breaker issue very quickly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Overpriced for a one night stay. Our price was for a 30 amp only site. Pad was buckled and not level. Lots of trees. Poor satellite service. Good fishing. Good 3G service. We have stayed in this area before and a few miles south are nicer parks at a lower cost. We picked this park because it was closest to I-40 and we were just passing through. Sites are narrow. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park off the main road. Easy to get to and has helpful owners. Only draw back is you are north of Pigeon Forge and the traffic can be an issue when you go to a show. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here for thanksgiving holiday. Sites are narrow, but clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. Good starting point for adventures to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. The traffic to get through Pigeon forge was very busy. It took over and hour to go seven miles. Found some back roads from the lady at the office. But i wont tell you so the next time we come there they are not back up. Nice clean sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Although the park has all gravel roads, they are well maintained. The sites on the river are back-in, but long and level. Our 40' motorhome went right in and there was no problem with space for the slides or awnings. The river view is wonderful. We watched birds, turtles and fish splash while sitting at our campfire. We used our DirecTv so can't comment on cable TV. Good Verizon reception on our wireless internet. Only improvement they need are trash cans at the pet walk to dispose of the pickup bags. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stopped for an overnight. Had pull through site, only 30 Amp electric. Advertised 25 channel cable in brochure; had to use antenna as cable quality was poor, couldn't see picture. Tried Wi-fi, gave up, very slow and couldn't call up site. On the way out roads were very muddy, even though there was no rain the time I was there; need to put some gravel down. Very disappointed for the price. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had a one night stay and there were huge potholes filled with water throughout the camp. Most of the camp is gravel, with little landscaping. It is located directly next to a main road, which was very noisy. The internet connection was extremely slow and actually non-existent most of the time. There was nothing appealing about the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We absolutely love this campground! It is very well maintained, bathrooms are super clean, wonderful river view and access. Both the owners and the staff are exceptionally friendly. We can't wait to go back! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Office staff was not very friendly upon arrival: five people trying to check in at the same time and the staff was really flustered. Sites are gravel and fairly level with a small concrete pad and picnic table. The picnic table was very old and twisted wood which made it unusable. If you stay in sites 260 through 285 and it rains: you will find yourself in deep puddles all around the site. These sites need alot of added gravel. There is no shade in sites 235 through 285. Cable TV was only fair with the ESPN channels snowy. The Wi-Fi was reliable and strong. We will not return here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites are gravel but level, clean, and spacious. For the price, it's the best RV park in the area. This was our first visit to this park, and we plan to return and make our reservations well in advance just to make sure we get a site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wi-Fi is now FREE here. Nice, clean campground run by a family with a family attitude. Located on Boyd's Creek, it is convenient to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg via the back roads. GREAT PARK! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our second visit to this campground. The back section has paved pull through sites that are big rig friendly. Campground is a good value for the money. Has easy access to the main highway with a traffic light. Staff is friendly and helpful. Would stay at this campground in the future. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great park to tour the area. Easy in and out. Water, electric & sewer all great. Nice and quiet at nite although nearby helicopter flights (site-seeing)during the day are a little irritating. Have stayed before, will stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A great park with a nice staff. One thing I like in particular is that they do not increase their rates during holidays. In late 2008 they said they were going to "try" to offer free wifi but not sure. Very good family campground located on Boyd's Creek which makes for easy back door access to Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our family really enjoyed this campground! Pros: Close proximity to attractions; level sites; riverfront sites; nice employees; clean restrooms/bathhouses; pool; fishing in river; trash pickup daily; playground. Cons: Very close campsites; no fire rings or grills at sites; cost to access Wi-Fi. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We came to this campground for a family reunion in Knoxville. I really liked the easy on and off the interstate. The staff was nice and helpful but it would have been nicer to have some shade at the pull through sites. We will continue to use this campground for our trips to TN. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good clean campground, newer pull throughs and creek fronts on the backside be sure to specify these on reservations as ones closer to office and pool are really close together. Nice gravel drives. Kids everywhere but well behaved. We have used this campground many times for extended stays and as just overnighters never had a bad experience. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a large campground with many sites close together. Upon entering they couldn't process our credit card so we had to pay by check. The credit card company had no idea why. The showers were nice. They have free cable TV but very limited stations. There is a charge for Wi-Fi with poor connection speeds. There are only 4 washers and dryers for 285 sites with at least a half hour wait to do laundry. Good gravel interior roads with level sites. This is a very Christian-type campground with a sign over the office that says "Jesus" and they have gospel concerts on Saturdays. The campground is close to the highway and services without being noisy. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The worst thing about this campground is the sites are right on top of each other! And, it seems that they allow more than one extra vehicles per site. It is convenient to Knoxville, as is only four miles from I-40. However, getting to Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg is a much longer drive. Use Exit 407 off I-40 onto Route 66. As we were here on the 5th of July, the traffic going toward I-40 was backed up at least five miles. We inquired of the traffic at one of the shops and were informed that the traffic is bad every weekend. The campground was full when we arrived and the pool was inundated with "unwatched" children. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our home away from home. Whenever we head to Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge we always make this CG our home base in which to explore the area. Huge, long pull thru sites that are very level ( all new ), excellent utilities and a quiet relaxing atmosphere. The staff are very friendly and helpful. If your going to be in the area, this is a great ( cheap ) place to stay. An ultra clean, no frills place to stay over for a night or a week. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped in a pull through in the new section. Roads are limestone and well maintained. Our site was long and level with a concrete patio, but rather narrow. Trash was picked up at the site and the grounds were well maintained. Sites in the older section looked tight. We didn't use Wi-Fi as it was $5.95 per day. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Clean and well maintained park. Sites are fair size but not huge. We stayed in a riverfront site in the newer section of the campground and had a pretty view of the Little Pigeon River. Most of the campground's pull through sites are in this area and they appear to be designed mainly for large motorhomes since the concrete pads are located toward the front of the site. There is not a showerhouse in this area so it is a fairly long walk to the closest one. It is also a long walk to the pool, store and pavillion areas. The campground was quiet. It has several seasonal sites but all of these are extremely well maintained. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This “L” shaped park is different. We had a spot (255) near the river. It was flatland which I enjoyed. I had very little leveling to do. Most other spots near me were level too. The grounds were kept up very good. I noticed them mowing and weed eating. Plus, I saw them using some sort of grass killer around the concrete pads. I think all the spots had these pads. The grass was very full and felt nice under my feet. They had planted trees in this area about 4 years ago. They were about 15 foot tall and provided some shade. There is a picnic table for each site. The one we had was in good shape. This place has a pool but I was not able to make use of it. I could not help but notice they had a bunch of cabins. They were all seated on the riverbank. The fire rings were all placed near the riverbank too. The river was placid and I did notice several people fishing on it. I was unaware if they were catching any fish. The bathhouses were spotless. But, there are only two of them for over 300 sites. I say that is not enough for the number of potential campers. The arcade was very outdated. I noticed an Ms Pac-man game and 3 others. They were all way out of date. They do have a nice pavilion. It looks to seat about 100 people. I understand they have church services and they do tend to be well attended. The camp store was fairly well stocked. I would guess that in the summer it would have even more items. The interior roads are gravel and well kept. This park also has internet but the cost is about $3 per hour! For this reason and the lack of bathhouses, and the lack of fire rings I give this park a 7+. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for spring break with an 18 yr old girl, 14 yr old boy, 3 yr old girl and 9 month old girl. They all enjoyed the trip. The campground is out of the hustle/bustle of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, but is close enough to allow easy access. The campground was quiet (with the exception of some highway traffic noise late at night). There are several permanent sites, but they are well kept. The latest addition to the campground features flat, level sites that are right on the river, but they have no shade yet. The trees that have been planted are still very small, less than 6 feet. Overall, nice quiet campground close to the interstate but still close enough to the action. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I was somewhat disappointed upon arrival. The park really didn't look that nice. It was also a mobile home park. When I checked in, the only thing the lady told me was how much I owed. She didn't even tell me there was a trash pick-up. We found out the next morning as we saw someone in a pick-up trick driving down the road with trash in the back. The back-in sites were close together and somewhat of a squeeze to get in. The roads were gravel, so you heard "crunch, crunch" as cars and trucks drove by. The park was close to the interstate and not that far from Dollywood, which was convenient. The price was great and they didn't require a minimum three night stay like the other parks wanted because of the holiday weekend. We probably will try another park if we visit the area again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice, quiet park. Open shot at the southern sky for satellite dish. Two comments: "no public display of alcohol permitted" per the rules. And, if the water pressure in your rig seems low, clean or replace your filter. The park is on a well with high mineral content. Water tastes good, but it plugs the filter up. We cleaned our filter every couple of days. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park. Closest we found to I40. Park clean, staff pleasant, wide streets and easy-to-negotiate pull-thru's. Limited TV selection. WIFI was adequate. Had some permanents but they were very nice and well kept. Would return again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful Campground. Wide Roads, beautiful pull through sites with full hook ups, concrete patio and grass. Sites are level. Excellent WIFI connection available at site($2.95 hr, 5.95 day). River Front sites available. Cabins and some residential sites. Everything is well cared for. Convenient to I-40, and recreation areas around GT Smoky Mtn Ntl Park, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites a little uneven and difficult to level. Moved from first site allocated due to large slope and impossible to level even with all of our lumber blocks. Gravel and ground in big ruts and ridges. Helpful staff. Electric and water very good. Cable TV connection poor and 'snowy' picture. Plenty of space and campground quite neat and tidy. Restrooms awful - old, primitive and barely clean - we didn't use them. Excellent location for visiting the Smokey Mountains Area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our 4th stay here, like coming home. Great office folks, they keep your info in computer, this check in took two minutes. Great level sites, clean parking areas/streets, always friendly folks camping in the park. Lots of kids for the pool area. We stayed in the back in the 200's, lots of pull thru sites. Back area is always great and quiet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice campground with a large number of pull through sites in the rear section of the park. There are quite a number of permanent residents in the front of the park. Mobile homes and cabins are available for rent, the cabins are along the river. Everyone at the campground is friendly and try to make sure you have nice stay. There is a nice pool but there is no shade. It would have been nice to have some patio tables with umbrella's around the pool to provide some shade. Overall, this is a very nice park and I would stay at again even for an extended stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The RV park which is closest to the Interstate (about 5 miles), which is why we chose it, as we did not feel like driving the coach through traffic. The park is very "Christian", but it's nice. The old section surrounds the office, through which you drive to get to the "pull-through" section. Huge spots, river access/views, nice atmosphere, and quiet. A good location for getting in and out of town(s), without the hassle of driving your rig through them. Lots of wash/cleaning companies, and RV repair companies. Found that Rick's mobile RV Repair was quite expert in all areas of repair, and certified. We will return in the Spring, and will have a list for Rick! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground was about five miles south of I-40. Staff was very friendly and allowed us to pick a site to our liking. They spread out campers which increased privacy. The roads are a mix of paved and gravel. Sites are long, wide, and gravel. Most sites are long enough to handle any size coach with any number of slides without unhooking toad. The utilities are modern and placed well. Each site has a concrete pad and table. Most sites are satellite friendly. On a grassy knoll over looking the river there are fire rings and BBQs. The pool and laundry room are modern and very clean. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Over all not a bad park. Cable tv is very limited, I got more channels with my antenna. Staff at desk was very unfriendly and gave away one of the sites we had reserved and didn't care. It is a christen camp owned by by ministers but we were not treated accordingly. I don't intend to return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you do not use your RV bathroom, make sure you get a site near the bath house. It is nearly 1/2 mile from one end of the campground. Cable system is poor. Wi-fi did not work well and was $6 a night. Owners know nothing about the wi-fi. I asked to be camped near the wi-fi antennas and they did not know where they were. Park was clean, sites were level with fresh crushed stone. Grass was very well cared for. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice campground. Laundry services only available before 6 pm. Some vending machines did not work well. Staff in office helpful on some things but unaware on others. Overall, very nice campground but does need some catching up to compete with others in area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was the first time that we camped here. Thanks to the reviews on this site, I chose this campground. We were in at a river waterfront site on the Little Pigeon River. They are a couple dollars more, but are worth it. You have more room behind your camper to spread out and there are campfire rings behind these sites. We had a nice view of the river and it was fairly quiet. We have stayed several times at another campground down in Pigeon Forge that was much more cramped. The next visit to the area, we will return to Riverside Campground. The staff was friendly, the garbage was picked up and the place was clean and welcoming. Our site had a concrete patio, picnic table and full hookups (including CATV). We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here for a week in the newer open section which was level and roomy. The pool was clean. Most of the staff were friendly. We liked the location away from the tourist congestion. The Wi-FI is spendy, but it is an additional take it or leave it option. I need it, and it worked well during the entire week we were there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground. Some sites are somewhat small especially for a larger rig. Recently expanded area has very little shade but in time the trees that are planted should provide more shade. Friendly staff, family atmosphere, reasonable prices for area. We will probably return. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Grounds and bath facilities were in excellent condition. However the sites were very close together, our awning was only 18" from our neighbors hooks ups. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very clean, friendly, and helpful staff. Restrooms and showers very clean. Shaded sites however are very LIMITED, and only on the outer perimeter of park. Sites are Level and graveled with each site having a concrete pad. Sites were deep but very close...our awning was only 26" from neighbors sewer and water hookups. Fire rings / up-right grills available depending on site. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Well laid out and maintained campground. Pull through sites will accommodate all sized campers. You will see no trash or clutter here. Owners/operators are friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is very clean and neat. There are some permanent sites but no garbage or unsitely plastic coverings and items laying around. Permanent sites are together and not spread out amongst the temp. sites. Showers are newly renovated. Personnel are very nice and helpful. Laundry clean & neat. Sites and roadway are all gravel with grass areas in between. There are lovely large trees (trimmed trees no problem with high vehicles) We like the sites along the river. Steps lead down to a wonderful walk with benches along the rivers edge. This will be our park each time we visit family who live in the area. Only one problem speed bumps are too high. We broke our coffee pot this time as we left. A little shorter would be good. We camped here in a camper.
The park has pull through and back in gravel sites and cable. This is a nice park in the country and 1/2 hour from Cades Cove. Verizon good, Wi-Fi fair and road noise was at a minimum. Beautiful mountain views. Love this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice, quiet park about 10-15 minutes outside of Sevierville. The people are friendly. TV reception was hit and miss, but we didn't go to the area to sit and watch television. No playground equipment or pool, but we are retired so not an issue for us. If you're looking for plenty of stuff to entertain kids with, this is not the place for you. But, if you just want a small, friendly park then this is a little gem. We would not hesitate to stay here again. Rate is for CCUSA. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here at Smoker Holler from July 3 - 12th and loved our stay. It is located 9 miles off the Parkway from Pigeon Forge and is in Sevierville. It is only 4 miles from Townsend and you can be in Cades Cove in no time at all. This is a very quiet park with beautiful mountain views. We really enjoyed this park because we loved being able to go hiking in the mountains and didn't have the traffic of Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg just to get there. We have always stayed in Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg and also visited those areas while staying here but found that we loved going to Townsend and Cades Cove on our trip. If we hadn't have stayed here we would have never visited all of these new areas. The owner is very nice and she will even walk over to your campsite to help you pull into your spot if you need it. She likes to make sure that she gives you the old fashioned service that you don't get anywhere else. We found her through our Camp Club USA membership and received 1/2 off for our stay. At $12.50 per night for my husband, myself, our son and our dog. You can't beat that at all. She welcomes you, your kids and pets. This was the only park that we have stayed at that has huge sites. The back ins and the pull through sites. It was nice not getting woke up in the morning when your neighbors are leaving. We didn't hear a thing! This is the quietest park! There is also a nice big pavilion to use for larger groups or just to go up there and sit under for shade or eat at the picnic tables. The work campers are super nice too and will let you know what to do in the area. It was a pleasure to meet everyone. Our son, who is 14, enjoyed staying here too. He liked riding his scooter on the paved road next to the park. This park is gravel and grass, but they are very level. There are many stores, gas stations and a laundry mat within a short driving distance. If you need to have a pool, concrete sites or noise then this is not the park for you. If you want a simple, quiet park with awesome mountain views then this is the park for you! We can't wait to stay here again! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Top notch! This is very quiet and secluded. The view is outstanding! We have stayed here several times and will again until our park is finished here. Note: if you have an emergency and have to leave early, as our friends did, you will not get a refund! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Lovely exclusive park for class A only. Privately owned sites, not all of which are available to rent. Very quiet. Easy to visit Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and even Knoxville if you don't mind a relatively short drive. There are no bathhouses or showers - not needed, but there is a lovely pool at the clubhouse at the top of the hill. Only negative was that our chosen site was not quite as depicted in the online pictures, however we were quickly moved to another site which was spacious and very nice. Several owners were there during our stay - wonderful people. Highly recommend. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The Dell is a small very exclusive motorcoach only resort and many of the sites are privately owned - some of those (and others) are available for rent and the entire park is managed by Hidden Mountain Resorts - Very nice people. The park is gated and most sites are paved and very roomy. You can visit their website and see pictures of the sites that are available for rent. Rental fee depends on how developed the site is. Owner sites have much privacy, pavers, large patios with cooking areas, fountains and stonework. They offer less expensive sites with concrete, grass or gravel pads. Each site has a small storage building, but they are not available to renters. Not all of the private site amenities are available to renters. Check with management. The park has lovely ponds, extensive manicured landscaping and is beautiful. They are dog friendly and management can tell you of other places in Hidden Mountain where you can walk your dog. The Dell is not far from the main road that runs to Gatlinburg (10 minute drive weekdays-longer on weekends and holidays.) It's very quiet and away from the chaos of Pigeon Forge, yet close enough for access to all. It's very near to Apple Valley Farm for dining and shopping. Two caveats: there is little shade, and the sites are subject to a very hot west sun in the afternoons. We stayed for a couple of weeks in Aug/Sept. and ran the AC round the clock. Also, there are no restrooms, showers, or laundry on the property. You must be self-contained and use your own facilities. That said, we really enjoyed this peaceful and charming park and will stay here whenever we are in East Tennessee. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here one night as an overnight on our way to South Carolina. First come first serve and we happened to get the last site with electric and water that was open. Nice setting, shade, close to the water. Mosquitoes were pretty thick at dusk, but all in all a nice site. I do think people are putting cheap tents on some sites to make other people think someone is already camping at the site. I saw at least 4 sites that were set up this way with nobody around. Restrooms were clean, did not use the showers. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Friday, June 21 – Douglas Reservoir – Douglas Dam Headwater Campground, Sevierville, TN This is a TVA self-service campground. Sixty five campsites and 61 with water and electric hookups. We checked in on a Friday afternoon. First, we had gone down the road to another TVA campground Douglas Dam Tailwater Campground but there was nothing available. Some sites at these TVA campgrounds almost looked like permanents. So we headed back up the road and checked this one out. When we crossed the highway we could see the campground just below the dam and it looked like it was full. We decided to drive down and check it out and we found a small site that we could have fit in but a large RV was at the dump station and had just left a nice site right on the river with hookups. So we stayed the night with a nice view of the dam and downstream. We were lucky to get a spot. It is a self check in campground so we had to fill out the form and put cash in the envelope to put in the box. With a Golden Age pass, the $22 per site was 50% off to make it $11. Nice stop, but we were in driving range of interstate 40, Pigeon Forge and Smokey Mts National Park that the traffic on the highways was busy so I don’t know if we would ever stop again. This is a tourist area and very crowded. The campground was full but it was very enjoyable and peaceful. The restrooms had heated showers and flush toilets. There was a dump station, picnic tables, boat ramp, walking trail, wildlife viewing area, bird watching and a swimming beach (I don’t know about swimming in the river because we found a lot of trash and dead fish in it right in front of our site). We camped here in a Motorhome.
The previous poster pretty much nailed it. For the most part the sites have plenty of space between them with the exception of the lake front spots. Most of the sites are level enough for a trailer or fifth wheel, but motor homes might have to use some blocks under their jacks to get completely level. Our biggest complaint was the quality of the electricity. It was real easy to pull the voltage down into the 105 to 108 range when loading it with 20 plus amps. I would be concerned about trying to use an air conditioner at this campground. We had one of the lake front sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) clean, neat, campground on Douglas Lake impounding the French Broad River, the camp off to the north of the dam with electric power generation. Paved roads, with nicely graveled sites, but most not level, with water and 30 and 20 amp electricity, a dump station, and clean bath house with shower. Huge boat ramp and parking right by campground. Many ducks and gray herons to view. Great view of the huge lake. With a Golden Passport the $22/day reduces to $11, a real bargain. There is also a Tailwater section below the dam with 62 more level sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fabulous small big rig RV resort that is absolutely spotless. We pulled our motorhome into a river front spot for a great setting--right on the riverfront. Short 7 mile drive to Pigeon Forge...will stay here when ever in the area. Very, very nice staff so anxious to help with suggestions about activities in Pigeon Forge. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great park for visiting the surrounding area. Easy to find, very quiet and exceptionally clean. Very friendly and helpful staff. The sites are fairly small compared to what we are used to, but it is perfect for winter use. We stayed in the cheaper sites which we thought were ideal. There is a nice field right next door where we let the dogs run, but this is not part of the campground. I would say that the park is more geared toward adults, although there is a small play area for children. If you stay here, make sure you ask for the best way to get out, as the obvious route is pretty dangerous turning onto the main road. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you are camping in a motor home...this is a very unique campground as you pull into your site and are facing the river. The park is fairly new and laid out very well and nicely for larger rigs. The property manager is extremely friendly and helpful as are his workcampers. We will definitely be back to this place as we prefer being somewhat out of the way with the motorhome and driving our toad into Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg which are both about 25 minutes away. It is a very nice drive, and you will not have to pull your rig through that craziness. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean and quiet. We have been traveling over the past two years all over the US. This park is one of the nicest we have stayed at. Staff very helpful with directions and suggestions of things to do. I used the laundry and it was very clean. We had a pull in, water front site and it was worth the extra money. Very peaceful. Easy on and off I-40. We would definitely recommend, and stay here again. Sites are long, concrete and the hook ups are in the right place! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very, very clean RV park. Very quiet, staff nice. Would recommend, but if we go back to that area I would probably stay in Gatlinburg area - close to more attractions, restaurants, etc. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park. My only complaint would be no security or not being gated for this price. It seems a little pricey for no security. This price included tax and a Good Sam discount also! But all in all very clean and very beautiful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very well maintained campground, with full hookups, very friendly and helpful staff at check in. Road is paved and the level pads are concrete. Only 55 sites, some are back in and the others are pull in. Big rig access is good. Very quiet, with plenty of space and privacy around the RV. The landscaping is lovely, but as yet too small to give any shade. All sites have a picnic table. We had a wonderful view over the French Broad River. Bathrooms are spotless and the laundry is large, well equipped and clean. There is a dog walk with pick up bags, and video surveillance 24/7 which adds to a sense of security. Wi-Fi and cell are good. A pool and exercise room are also available. This is a great location close to Pigeon Forge, Dollywood, Gatlinburg and the Great Smokey Mountains National Park; however, the area is notorious for its nightmare traffic and crowds. Lots of good places to eat. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful Park. A bit pricey, but to be on the serene river front was to die for. Exceptionally clean and very quiet park. Getting in and out of the spaces was easy, especially for our rig (42' and a toad). I would go back and stay again and again! Lots to do and see all around the area, especially for young families. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 10 / 10 ]
This park is without fault. Sites are 60' by 20', level concrete pads. We had a riverfront site, which you drive into, so you face the water. Nice grass area between the front of the coach and the river, where we were able to set up table and chairs. The view is incredible, tons of wild birds, and we saw eagles every day. Staff are great and very friendly. Small activity centre for kids, plus swimming pool. Good location, close to everything, yet far enough off the highway to be quiet and peaceful. Would definitely recommend, and will stay here next time. Our rate reflects a 7 night stay (seventh night free) on a riverfront site inc all taxes, with Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Simply an extremely fine place to stay. The sites are all paved, level, private, and beautifully maintained. The manager and his staff are very friendly. Showers are modern, clean, with a lovely clubhouse. When you look at the pictures online, it is what you will see there. Every site is just perfect, not just a few. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is maybe the cleanest park I've ever stayed camped at. The grounds, camp office/meeting area, and bathrooms were spotless. Every sight is paved and level. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Access is easy off the expressway without having to drive through all the madness that is sometimes associated with traffic in this area. The price shown ($25/night) for our stay reflect the off season cost. I asked about in season price and was surprise to find it was cheaper than other campgrounds we have stayed at in the area. The only amenity I did not find here was propane refill. Wi-Fi was free and fast. The view of the river and area is great. With all that, the park only has 55 sites and if you're planning an in-season stay I would recommend reservations. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is essentially a road off of a business park that isn't developed. We had reservations and called ahead that we would be arriving much later than expected (about 9:30pm), well after their check-in time. They had no issue with it and said that they would leave a site assignment and map on the front office door for us. Just as advertised it was there. The road through the park is black top and each site is concrete. There is essentially no room on each site, outside of the concrete pad. A picnic table was provided, but fires were not allowed. The Wi-Fi signal was strong, but it wasn't the speediest and they're doing some kind of throttling. I tried downloading a rented movie on our iPad in the morning, and it just didn't download. We only glanced at the playground and pool, but they seemed nice. The bathhouses were large and the showers private with their own doors. Though, my daughter said her water went cold mid-shower. I'd gladly stay here for an overnight stop again, though it's not really my cup of tea for a stay of any length of time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a beautiful park. It features spacious, paved, level, landscaped sites. It is a couple blocks from the main road to Sevierville so it is quiet. Showers are roomy, sparkling clean and have good water pressure. Good areas for dog walking - bags are provided. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found this park to be extremely clean and well organized. The park is basically a long road with 25 sites on each side. The river sites are for class A motorhomes only and offer a larger concrete pad. We have a fifth wheel so we were on the lot across from the river sites. (lot #48) The lot is very level and easy to back in to (no pull through sites). The sites are fairly wide and offer some privacy due to low bushes. The area was very quite and everyone was very nice. There is a great sidewalk for walking your pet and nice amenities for the children (pool, playground). Overall, this is a great park and we would camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a great campground! We had a site facing the river and really enjoyed the experience. Beautifully maintained with all concrete pads and paved roads. Nicely landscaped. Pleasant view across the river. Good services including cable. All back-in sites. Located about 3 miles off I-40 right behind the Smokies Mountain Knife Works. About 20 miles to the entrance to Great Smokies Mountains. Stayed longer than we had planned. We camped here in a Motorhome.
5 year old smaller park, but pristine. Nice clubhouse and pool. Class A motorhomes allowed along the riverfront with a great view, but all others relegated to the second row. Friendly staff. Very private. Watched sunset over the river, and saw 3 wild turkeys, and fish jumping in the river. Interesting shopping just up the street. No restaurant on site or in walking distance. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Outstanding! This is an amazing RV resort. Clean, neat, and very beautiful as we are currently parked with a gorgeous view of the river, shaded by trees, on a level concrete pad. Bathroom, showers, pool area, everything clean and neat as a pin. This is definitely someplace we will come back to. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park with great concrete pull in pads. Unobstructed views of the French Broad River right out your windshield. Satellite is no problem on any site and cable is also there. The staff was very friendly and helpful helping us get around the traffic in Pigeon Forge. The park is well cared for and everything is in the right place. They do have rules for the park but they are in place to make your stay more enjoyable. The rates are a little pricey but it does have the look and feel of a very nice condo park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I give the beauty of the park a 10, management a 1. Probably one of the prettiest parks I have ever been in, but my family and several others had bad experiences with the management. We felt as if they were lurking in the bushes waiting to bust us for every little thing, very strict. Kids can't even ride on the sidewalks with their bikes or walk in the grass next to the office. No towels can be hung on chairs. Felt very uncomfortable the entire time, we won't go back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for a week. We were very pleased with the RV resort. The restrooms were always clean every time we went to use them. The staff was very friendly and helpful in locating back roads to take to avoid traffic in the area. The pool was great, over looking the river. It took about 20 minutes to get into Gatlinburg if the traffic was not too bad. With this RV park you did not get the feeling of being on top of everyone, the sites were nicely laid out. I would highly recommend this park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here in a travel trailer just for one night. It was a really nice park. The landscaping is excellent and seemed to be well kept. All sites are concrete and plenty big. Each site has a small landscaping light that comes on at dark. Each site has a picnic table. The bathroom and showers were very upscale. The staff that we met, the campground host, and the manager were certainly as nice and accommodating as they come. The pool looked very nice, but we didn't use it. There is a really nice play area for the kids. I saw security cameras on the property, but other that that, there is no security and it is not gated. It is very pricey at a total of $55.32 for the night (that is including tax). The scenery is very nice here as well. Not sure if we would be willing to pay these prices for an extended period. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This a beautiful RV park although no pull throughs. Should be for the price. We could have stayed cheaper in a local motel in this off season. Stayed one night, was all that was open. Will say if you have the money can't get much better. Large full concrete pad about 20' x 60' pull in. River view and landscaping. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites are paved and landscaped nicely. They are very wide, pull-ups facing the river. The park is quiet, the staff extremely friendly and helpful, and the entire park is exceptionally clean. We will stay here again if we come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed for a week in a large, paved site facing the river. This is a beautifully landscaped campground with a friendly staff that went out of their way to be helpful. The peaceful setting and seeing eagles and deer across the river made this a memorable week. The RV resort is within easy access of I-40. We most definitely would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great place to park an RV. Nothing to do there other than the pool. But make no mistake, a very nice place to stay. All sites are level concrete and beautifully landscaped with fragrant bushes. Very quiet campground. But don't use the water for cooking and drinking. Apparently, TN uses quite a heavy dose of chemicals in the water, so be sure to bring water for drinking and cooking. We will stay there again for the quiet, convenient access to the Gatlinburg area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an amazing park. The view out our front windshield was gorgeous. We sat outside for several hours in the morning. The kids loved the pool. Everything is immaculate. It's a quiet refuge from all the noise and activity of the area. The sites are concrete, with gorgeous flowering bushes between each site. The staff was extremely friendly. My 14 year old son got a wealth of information on the area from Joan at the front desk. She even dropped off more info at our site. We'd love to come back! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Agree with the others. I'd like to say that I will come back but at $63, it would be a tough call. This is an instance of economic theory that a cut in price would vastly increase the bottom line. Outstanding facility but not worth this much money. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place wasn't the RV Park that we had originally decided on for our stay, but a wrong turn took us here. One look, and we decided that we had found our spot. The location is flawless, right on the bank of the French Broad River, a quiet large river of great beauty. The park is beautifully landscaped and extraordinarily well maintained, and the sites are all concrete pads, perfectly level. The sites at the riverbank are all head-in, so you can open you drapes in the morning and see the beautiful river. The staff are extremely helpful and accommodating, and the restroom/showers are clean and very nicely appointed. We do think that they would increase their business by at least fifty percent if they were to reduce their rates by 25 percent. The place was never more than one quarter full during the five days we were there. Regardless, we wouldn't stay anywhere else in the area. The Deli just up the hill is great for lunches. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Large sites, paved. Friendly staff. Good fishing in the small river. A little far out if you plan on trips to Gatlinburg. Plenty of restaurants and shopping. Will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Smaller park, just two rows, with preference to buses. They get the front row next to the river, trailers on the second row. Quite nice, good paved road and level concrete pads. Nice office complex. Wide spaces with tables. Very clean and up to date (this is the second year open). A little expensive, but this is the nicest park in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Resort? I'm not so sure I'd call it that. Nice place no doubt as it appears new. Nice landscaping between sites,hook-ups well placed. It's one wide strip with back ins on the left for 5th wheels and pull ins on the right for MH with a river view. The night we stayed there were about 13 MH's + us and one 5th wheel. The concrete slab was long enough for our 42' MH and Tahoe toad. There is also enough space on the side to park next to the MH. One thing I didn't like was our site was unlevel, sloping toward the river. Be sure you have your wheel chocks! Again a very clean,nice new place but pricey. I'd probably try the other place down the street next time, but only due to price. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place is first rate, though the price is high. Wi-Fi is at least free. It is quiet with a river view. There were 8 - 10 rigs overnight. Prior reviewer talked about gravel - wrong campground. There is NO gravel anywhere around. All concrete roads and sites. This is our second time here, and we would clearly return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is big and well maintained and looks like gets a lot of traffic (not surprising given the location). Lot's of large slips in the back, all gravel with concrete patio (big rig accessible). Located yards from Hwy#441. Was a good overnight (we stayed 2). We were looking for a quick stop for a hike in the smokey's without taking the MH all the way to Pigeon Forge. If we were going back to the area this would be our second choice. Sprint had good coverage but park CHARGES $6 PER DAY FOR WI-FI which is a big neg for us. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a first class RV Resort only a few miles from I-40 on Highway 66. Paved roads and oversizes concrete pad with enough room for Motorhome and tow vehicle parked end to end. Lots of landscaping, great view of river, and well maintained and managed. Really nice clubhouse, small playground, and pool. If you want clean, quiet, and upscale, this is as good as it gets. Great place all year but especially nice during winter months of rain and snow. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Expensive CG-but sites are concrete, level, nicely landscaped. Not anything for teenagers to do at this CG. Has a nice playground area for children 5-12 years old. Have to drive a while to get to any attractions from this CG. Not family oriented. Bathrooms and showers are extremely nice and clean. We stayed at a comparable CG at Hilton Head for a lot less money, and more for teenagers and small children to do. Will not go back due to the high price--that's why I give it a 7. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is one of the nicest campgrounds I have ever stayed in. There is a beautiful office. The pool was decent, and overlooked the river. The sites were beautifully landscaped, and easy to get into although a bit close together. That was not a problem because the campground was nearly empty, so the site next to us was only filled a couple of nights. The bathrooms were immaculate. The cleanest I have ever seen in a campground. They were cleaner than a lot of home bathrooms. The showers had a private dressing room and glass doors into the shower. The Comcast Cable was very good with 70 channels or more. The campground manager and the other employee working there were probably the nicest people I have met working at a campground. This campground is a lot more expensive than other campgrounds in the area, but it is the only true resort. I would highly recommend this campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This facility opened on Labor Day, and Memorial Day weekend was the first time they'd had a full house. It won't be the last! The campground is well situated for exploring the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area (it's within walking distance of Knifeworks and outlet shops, including Coleman). The sites are all level cement pads, well manicured (no shade), and half of them face the peaceful river. There's not a lot of space between sites, as is typical of city camping. There is a small pool (5 feet deep) and playground. The office offers a nice lounging space with a gas fireplace, along with a small fitness room, and the wrap-around porch is complete with several nice wood rocking chairs. The staff were friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be back! We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is a brand new RV Resort! It is truly a hidden treasure since it recently opened, not many people are aware of it yet. It will be booked far in advance once the word gets out about this RV resort. The staff is extremely helpful! Since I was traveling alone, they did not hesitate to take me to my site and guide me while backing my 5th wheel in. The resort was originally designed to be a motorcoach only location, however, the owner had a change of heart and decided to also allow travel trailers and 5th wheels - I am very happy that he did! The grounds are beautifully maintained and the campground office is absolutely beautiful with very high ceilings and awesome fireplaces in the office area. There is a very nice workout room, pool, and playground. I would highly recommend this RV Resort. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
