We stayed one night this time (we have been here many times). July was just too hot for us in a motorhome. We stay in a 40 foot Motorhome and there are only a few sites we can fit in. The one that was available was in near full sun all day and the temps were in the 90's. We had to seek a campground with hookups this time. I think we would have been able to stay longer if we would have fit on a different site. The campground is one of our all time favorites. It has no hookups and no showers, but a stay here is well worth the primitive nature of the campground. Wildlife (deer, turkey, and an occasional bear wander through the campground. We have met the nicest campers here and made some lasting friends from across the country. The Cades Cove Loop Road is the major attraction, but the entire Smokey Mountain National Park is available for your enjoyment. We will stay here again.

We had booked 8 nights at Cades Cove Campground in late July. What were we thinking? As much as we love Cades Cove in April or October, with no hookups it was just too hot for us to enjoy our stay. We left after one night and went looking for a campground with hookups. Big Meadow was our choice after looking at about 6 campgrounds in the Townsend area. The campground is very clean and although the sites are close, the concrete pads were level and provided plenty of room for our slides with a picnic table and fire pit. The staff was friendly and helpful and the campground was relatively quite after dark. It filled up on the weekend nights with friendly and courteous campers. The location was great, close to Cades Cove and just a drive across Wear Valley to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. We visited Cherokee and fished in the Smokey Mountain National Park streams. We stayed in a motorhome and would stay again if we came in the hot summer time. This was the 20th anniversary of the park so we hit a special rate. Pay for two nights at the regular rate ($55 for a premium pull thru) and get the third night for $20.

We stopped here for a quick overnight stay while traveling from Townsend, TN to Louisiana. This campground was a great choice. Pull thru sites with concrete pads, very clean and nice grass area. The sites were close together but my slides had plenty of room and it was easy to get in and out of the site. The power held both AC units on a very hot evening and night. Water pressure was good. They allow Passport America but I could not find my current card, the one I had was expired so I had to settle for the Good Sam discount. For one night, and after driving for several hours I wasn't going to argue and this campground was much better than Walmart and running the generator all night to stay cool. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.

Davidson River Campground is located in the edge of the Pisgah National Forest, next to the Davidson River. The campground has several loops with some electric only sites. Most sites have no hookups. A dump station is available with potable water available at the station. The sites are shaded and spacious with trees and forest separating them from each other. Campground staff patrol the grounds at night and enforce quite times. We have enjoyed several stays at Davidson River and will return in the near future.

We stop at Auburn RV Park on our trips from Louisiana to North Carolina as a mid point overnight. Campground Staff is friendly and helpful. The campground is conveniently located near the Interstate, but the drive in is a little hard to find, turn just past the hotel into the ball park parking lot, with a couple of tight turns, but it can be managed with a 40 foot motorhome with a tow. There are a pull thru sites and back in sites available. The sites are clean and level. We have stayed here multiple times in a motorhome.

Convenient one night stay with pull-through sites and utilities. Didn't use facilities. I would be leery of some sites during a storm as the pecan trees are old and the limbs heavy. You can see a couple that have broken recently. Easy in and out and we would stay here again but only as an overnight stop. People were friendly and could really make this a nice park. Many long term sites were apparent.

Buffalo Point is a great place to stay. We stayed in a 40' Class A and it was tight. There are several sites that can handle a 40', but you must read the details at the online reservation site. The river is nice and swimming and tubing and canoeing are fun. Several concession services are available to help you plan a long distance float or you can float from the boat launch to the "D" campground. It takes about an hour. Restrooms and showers were clean. The camp host was friendly. A very pleasant stay.

Ozark Country Campground was a nice park with plenty of shade, a nice pool, and clean facilities. The staff was very helpful and friendly and made our stay a pleasant one. Easy to find and a very convenient location in Branson. Very near Table Rock Dam and located on one of the back roads that wind around Branson's busy entertainment corridor. We stayed in a 40' Class A and had no trouble getting to the campground or parking at the campground. We would stay here again.

As a one night stay, Sam's Town was better than just OK. My only gig was it was way off the main road. Easy to get in and out and clean facilities. All pull through sites and plenty of room. Note that you have to go to the hotel to register and pay. I called the front desk from the phone provided at the restrooms and had a guard come get me and take me to the front desk. I would stay here again, but I would think twice about not spending a little bit more and staying closer to the route of travel.

The KOA in Springfield was a nice place to stay while working for a few days in Strafford. The rate was a bit too high as are all KOAs in my opinion, but it was where we needed it to be and was clean and available. We would stay here again, if we need to be in this area.
