We enjoyed our stay. This is kind of a local park for us but its was good for a quiet getaway, and we went to work from the campground. As mentioned, it is a quiet park and the scenery over Huntsville is something to see. Park is close to Huntsville so there are plenty of places to eat. Staff was friendly. I would have given it a 9 or 10 but the roads once you turn off of Governors drive are kind of narrow and go through some neighborhoods along the way. Also they need a better entrance sign. It is kind of hidden and to close to actual turn off spot so you can run by it before you know it (like I did). Luckily there was some more roads that led back to it without much trouble. All in all we had a good stay and we would stay here again for a short trip.

Enjoyed our stay at Desoto. We like the trails and the little river canyon area is always a treat. Its almost like a uncommercialized Gatlinburg. Try the Ice Cream shop on the corner. You can't miss it. Staff at campground was friendly and helpful when needed. Sites were large enough for our 5th wheel. I would have given it a ten but the roads once you turn by the big rock can get a little snaky and the edges need some grade work so the drop offs are not so extreme. Once you get in the campground there is plenty of room. We will camp here again.

We had a great stay at Up the Creek. Sites were level and well maintained. Quiet campground and out of the way from the busy Pigeon Forge. 3-4 miles from all the entertainment and then you can escape to the quietness of the campground. Wi-Fi was weak at times and a little difficult to connect.
