Nice park, very friendly and helpful at the front desk. We were met at our site and again were made to feel welcome. We soon realized that location was a big plus. It's just off I-40 before you get too far into the horrendous traffic through Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg. Tough enough sitting in traffic in your car, but navigating that congestion with an RV would be much worse. Park was clean, and with our Good Sam card the price was good given the heavy tourist interest. Folks were friendly and we went to a church service at the pavilion sponsored by a local congregation. Only problem was with spotty Wi-Fi performance. I wouldn't be in a hurry to go to that area again, but if we did I'd definitely return to Ripplin.

We've been RVing for many years, and this is one of the nicest places we've seen. Check-in was easy and the staff was always pleasant and helpful. The grounds were immaculate and everything seemed to be in good repair. Remarkable for such a large place with so many RV sites, tent sites and cabins. We walked around the park and the small "lake" every day and found it to be a very family-friendly place. Everyone seemed to be having a great time, and they even have a fenced in area for your doggie. Over the weekend the place was full, with mostly VA license plates, which suggests that it's a popular local getaway. We stayed a week and it was $245. This website insisted on a nightly rate and I don't have that - so I divided by 7 - it might be a bit higher. I'd rate the park a 10 but the Wi-Fi in our location was consistently poor. Cable was OK but spare, (not a lot of channels) and some channels were not clear, but if you're coming to be outside and camp I suppose those aren't big problems. They do have a number of newspapers available too.

We wanted a place to stay for a week and our trip was business-related, so all the extras for families wasn't a plus for us. It was likely worth the extra cost for families, but not in our case, so we just stayed one night. We didn't check out the whole place. The staff was friendly and the park was clean and attractive, with lots of trees and shaded sites. That was not so good for us, because we couldn't get satellite coverage and the campground's Wi-Fi was spotty. It looked like a family-friendly place, and children seemed to be having a good time.

Just an update that agrees with earlier reviews: An unremarkable place, but good for when passing through. No amenities, showers, etc. but they do have a dumpster, and the area was clean. Water pressure was always low, and the Wi-Fi signal was consistently noted as "poor" on my laptop. Fortunately we had another option. Price seemed high, but only one other RV park in the area and they are higher yet, and in sight of I-95. As another reviewer mentioned, the park is right on US-1, but it wasn't a noisy place, especially later at night. Remarkably quiet. I didn't find the office people particularly friendly. And never saw anyone during the day. We were there for a week. I was concerned by all the chain link fencing, video cameras, and security in the tiny office (with one-way glass all around)but it seemed to be a peaceful place. It is all part of a larger mobile home park in the rear. The neighbors there were friendly.
