This park is very well maintained and manicured. It is compromised mostly of seasonal and rental trailers. Fellow campers and the staff were very friendly. However, being a family with children, we found there to be a lack of on-site activities. Basically, there are the 2 small swimming pools, and that is it unless you have boats, sea kayaks, or Sea Doos. What we assumed was a once lovely view and walk to the beach is now obstructed by the construction of a giant resort complex across the street that does not fit in at all with the quaint environment of the Sandbridge area. Campfires, one of the things we enjoy most when camping, are not allowed. For those who like the rustic, natural feel of camping, this park is not for you. We will probably not return.

We really enjoyed our week long stay here. We had a site right on the river/stream. The campground staff were very friendly and helpful. The campground is not large but they make use of their space, nestled into the Smoky Mountains. There were campground activities for the kids and lots of nature to explore. It's about 20 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg, which some might not like if they enjoy being closer to the hustle and bustle. We thought it was wonderful and would definitely return. Be aware, though, the weather in the spring in unpredictable. During our trip we experienced temperatures in the 80's one day to snow flurries by the end of the week. But, that's what makes camping fun!
