We were able to check in after hours. Permanent residents take up most of the 50 amp sites. We found one after hunting around the campground. This site is located in the middle of a resort area that is loaded with attractions. The road is heavily trafficked and you are in the city. The back of the site abuts the Pigeon River but access is restricted by a large burn. There is still heavy construction being done to the roadway. Access in and out of the campground is not convenient but easy enough to navigate. I'd might use this for any overnight.
Wow!! I wouldn't mind living here full time! The mountains surrounding the campground were amazing! This is a picture postcard site! Mallard ducks in a babbling stream that runs the length of the park. The bathrooms were pine paneled extravaganzas. The heat was up, the restrooms and showers were like new. You could eat off the grass. Not a speck of anything on the ground. Grass and gravel that looked like a well manicured golf course. I was impressed. The staff was polite. Across the street was a skydiving rig and nearby a ski resort. I'd come here just to camp and fish on a weekend. This is in the foothills of the Smokey Mountains on Rt. 40, exit 20.
