Date of Stay: April, 2017
If you read through the other reviews and find the median that's where I am. It had rained a couple days prior to my arrival and during. I ended up positioning the RV with my left to wheels in the grass/mud so I could step onto the paved parking pad which was the exact same width as the RV. Otherwise I would have stepped into a mud puddle. Cash or check only due upon check in. Old men were running the place are friendly and helpful. Water and electric were centered fore/aft which worked out well. Sewage was near front of coach so I stored and dumped before I left. I didn't see any trash. Fire pits clean. I didn't see any cats. One dog belong to a long term resident barked a little. I could hear a mule occasionally bay but only when outside. There are some older campers and even some with roofs built over them. But I didn't find them bothersome. I came here to fish Cave Run Lake and was only at the RV from 9p - 7a. I would stay here again due to easy access. I did find one of my basement doors open after returning one evening. I inspected all other doors and there wasn't anything missing. Pull through sites are long. I had 36' MH, 17' of boat and a SUV in mine.

Overall very good stay. Staff was very helpful but seemed overwhelmed at times due to it being very busy. Strange layout for a GG. You need to be pretty good at maneuvering your rig for some spots. All roads were gravel and smooth. No paved spaces. A good portion of the roads are through wooded sections where some small branches will contact your rig. Be sure you have at least 30 feet of power cord and water hose available. Many sites have a single pole with 4 water and 4 elect connections in the center with four campers parked in a square around the utility pod. Not many 50 amp spaces avail. I think about half the spots were seasonal rigs that never move. It seems that 95% of the sites were families with kids but from what we observed people were friendly and just there to enjoy the outdoors, hang out with friends and swim in the quarry. Several families had dogs but all were leashed and everyone seemed to pick up after themselves. No trash cans. You must take bagged trash to dumpsters. This seems like a pain but it there weren't a bunch of bees and no overflowing trashcans with keeps the place looking nice. Overall a very good weekend. Reservations are a must. Oh, not CG fault but be aware that AT&T cellphone coverage is extremely week.

Overall a good CG and well kept. Although we had a very good stay, I took a couple points off for minor annoyances. All sites are gravel with lots of trees and grassy areas for tents. The pool is only open 10-5 which I thought was silly if a person is out doing tourist stuff during the day and wants to relax by the pool in the evening. Most of the roads are narrow and curvy so you may want to walk to your assigned spot first to ensure you can make it. During the weekend there are a lot of tent campers, kids, and dogs but everyone adhered to noise hours. There are a lot of full-timers and some of those spots look rather trashy which initially cast a negative outlook to our decision to stay there.

Wonderful CG. Lack of sewer at each site could become a pain during long stays. However. the greatest thing about this CG is that most everyone followed the rules and were courtious. When quite hours began the place went quiet. Even those who were hanging out and drinking kept it quiet. There is a nice pool and play ground for kids. We liked the multitude of trails to walk the dog. The grounds were very well kept. I would not hesitate to visit again.

The owners and workers were very friendly. CG is small but well kept and quiet. Their Wi-Fi was down the first day but they repaired it. If you are in a site along the stream the front of the site is perpendicular to a road going to a Tyson factory but didn't present a problem. Our rate is Passport America. I took one point off the rating because the sites are rather close together. I'd stay here again if in the area.

We arrived approx. 7:30 pm for a one night stay. I had booked ahead of time via email to confirm they could handle my 36' MH pulling a 26' enclosed trailer. They had a perfect spot for that instance. Basically a site with it's own loop. CG is somewhat small without fluff and perfect for someone who is looking for a quiet place to park either for the night or a few days vacation in the area. The staff was very friendly. I'd stay there again.

We stayed there two nights. The CG was nice. It's basic with nothing fancy. But it was clean and quiet. All roads are paved. Sites are gravel with a concrete slab and picnic table. Nice area to walk dogs along creek. Decent shade trees. 50 amp sites are limited but since it was winter and we didn't need both a/c's that wasn't a problem. Low price due to Passport America discount. I gave it a 9 only because they advertise Wi-Fi but when you log on you find out that you only get two free log ins. Either I overlooked that or they failed to tell me. There is a Pigeon Forge bus that comes to CG but it takes 45 minutes to get to bus station. Recommend driving to bus station then getting on trolley. Of course we did this in the winter. There may not be enough parking in the summer to do that.

CG was very nice. I echo the first portion of a previous review where the person gave several 10's for the sites, view, etc. We found the stay very enjoyable. I had limited interaction with the staff (3 minutes at check in). Four of the six water closets were closed for repair when we were there. I didn't find that uncommon as it's winter and a good time for renovations. The one I used was very clean and was 100% functional. The reason I gave an overall of 9 is the road getting to the place. Once you turn off the highway there is about 100' of pavement then a curvy narrow dirt road cut into the hill. Being from WV I didn't find it abnormal, but a person who isn't used to driving in confined spaces may find it difficult. It takes some planning on where to position your rig to make the next turn. If possible stop at the bottom of the hill and call the CG to inquire if any rigs are coming down as there is no place for passing.
