We pulled in for an overnight stop. I wish we hadn't. The first words out of the office staff when I walked in the door were "there's somebody ahead of you". Since I didn't see anyone on my way in, nor was anyone parked ahead of us in line, I was a little confused - but let it pass. Turns out, they were parked in a side area and had gone to get their tag number. This seemed to be their main goal in life, the tag number, model and length of your camper. As important as this seemed to be to them, they still didn't get it right on the receipt (or my name for that matter), but it was probably because you had to shout over their blaring TV. When we were escorted to our sight, it was immediately apparent that the sight was not long enough to accommodate our truck and TT. When we asked for a long enough site to stay hitched, we were rudely informed that: "It's only a travel trailer and that site is long enough". Then made some comment about not knowing where our sewer connection was. In 25+ years of camping, I've never had to tell anyone where our sewer connection was. Needless to say, the attitude of these 2 staff members set the tone for our impression of this campground. Had they been the least bit accommodating, polite or understanding, our opinion might be very different. The sites are gravel, un-level, no grass, the roads are narrow with very tight turns. The Wi-Fi worked, but as another reviewer mentioned, ignore the sign in the office about turning off your security. It's not necessary and can be dangerous to your pc. If you need a place to stop overnight - keep driving. We will NOT stay here again.

This was our 2nd visit to Tremont. The campground is very clean, the sites are large, most have good shade and the staff very nice. Wifi is free and works well - cable is included. Fire rings are provided and wood is available (for a price). Cell phone service is hit and miss (not within their control) I do wish we had been able to reserve a different site as we were backed up to the main road (lots of traffic)and too close to the dumpsters (noisy, busy place!). I'll know to call sooner if we're going to be there again around a holiday (I thought 3 months ahead was enough). Try to get a river site if you can. The water level in the river was very low which made the tubing slow going - we saw lots of people with blown out tubes from hitting the rocks (again, not within their control). The only thing I would change would be to move the dumpsters to a different location and provide garbage pick-up so everyone wouldn't be driving to dump their trash. Other than that, we had a very enjoyable experience and would definitely stay here again.

We were very pleased with this campground. We were in the "A" section, nice big, grassy (gravel pad) sites with fire rings. Campground is very clean, but were surprised they didn't pick up garbage. Roads are a mix of pavement and gravel. We were originally given one site, but had to change to another site as it had steep grade to it and we couldn't get our 31' up it without tearing off the back bumper. Then had to move again the last day as we decided to extend our stay and our site was already reserved. (they let you reserve a specific site if you stay 6 nights) Campground staff was very nice and very helpful. Store wasn't over-stocked, but all we ever needed was ice. The river was fun but the tube rental fee ($8 a day) was a little steep in my opinion. Guess you pay for convenience. We toured the other campgrounds in the immediate area for future reference - we would definitely stay at Tremont again before any of the others. Wi-fi was adequate, laundromat ate my money and nightly fee of $46 includes tax. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - be sure to take a drive through Cades Cove and keep your eyes pealed for bears!

Stopped here on our way North. Had been here a few years ago and were pleased. Nice long pull through sites, did not have to unhook. We were a little disappointed that we didn't have a cable hook up, although we could see that some sites did have them (and I think we paid for it). The lady in the office was nice, wasn't sure we'd fit in the full hook up sites they had left, but we had loads of room. The only things I could see needed improvement were the grass needed mowing and our sewer was backed up.

Very nice campground! Roads are paved and sites are a nice size. Plenty of room for our 31' with 2 slides. There were some HUGE sites in one area, but unfortunately these had no trees. Staff was very friendly and helpful as were the other campers. Lots of families with kids of all ages. There are 2 pools and a spa and being a holiday weekend, they stayed pretty crowded. Fire rings are provided and wood can be purchased. Please be careful with your fires as we have had lots of brush fires here in Florida and all it takes is one small spark. They offered some planned activities and a pancake breakfast (bring money). We don't normally use the showers, but I walked in once just to check them out - needed cleaning, but again, it was a holiday weekend and they were full. I was surprised they did not have cable, but our antenna worked well enough to pick up a few channels. There is a nice boat ramp and dock to fish from. Just be aware of the love bugs this time of year, they are swarming. For those of you not familiar with love bugs, they don't bite - they just make a mess of your vehicle and rig and are very hard to remove it you don't get them off right away. We would definitely go back.

This park was very nice as far as facilities go. Roads were paved and wide enough to get around. The pool was heated, which was great since the weather was a little cooler than we hoped for. There is also a hot tub. Sites were decent size and overall the place was very clean. There were lots of 'seasonal' residents, mostly snowbirds (I don't mean that in a bad way). A little older crowd than we expected and hardly any children, made it a little boring for our 12 yr old. Check in staff and residents were very nice. We did have an escort to our site. However, we were not offered any information on activities, I found that on a bulletin board outside. Planned activities ended on March 31. They have a fenced pet area, but it could use a little cleaning up, there were dead tree branches and lots of leaves - no grass or places for humans to sit. The only other bad thing is the noise - it's very close to I-4 and you get lots of road noise - too bad since the park is very nice overall.
