Odd little campground. It is about five years old and the owner does most of the work himself, making for a very rustic, hand built feeling which is nice in a campground. It is clean and well kept, and his clientele are mostly motorcyclists looking to ride the Cherohala Skyway or the Tail of the Dragon, both nearby. This is not a family friendly campground. The campground is on the side of a hill, with a mostly paved, concrete drive up, and gravel sites that are level and tiered. Sites were large with good functioning utilities, wifi was excellent at my site across from the office. Clean bath house, very friendly people, free coffee in the morning, and in a great location to explore the NC side of the Smokies, but a bit pricey for an overnight stay.

This is a difficult campground to review. There are things I really like about it, but their website is also a little misleading and their bathhouse is just terrible. Start with the good, we were camped in the lower portion of the campground on a water/electric site. The sites are in a great location, well spaced, level, with large trees and a picturesque fishing pond. Water and electric were both in good working order. There is some light and road noise from nearby Rt 100, but it died down in the evening. The downside of the location, and what the map and website don't explain, is that these sites are on a different property, even in a different municipality, and more then ½mile from the bath house and the rest of the campground. There was a port-a-pot there, but you had to drive to take a shower. The bath house was the other downer. It had nice showers that seemed to be recently renovated, but one of the toilets was clogged all weekend and the whole place smelled due to poor ventilation. There were no mirrors above the sinks, and it finally it was a struggle to work the lock to the ladies room, we could not open it at all the first night we were there. We never ran into the crazy owner and in fact we only saw one staff member who checked us in when we arrived. She was wonderful, leading us to a site of our choosing and bringing down a large load of firewood which she helped unload. In all I would return, but only if they resolved the bath house situation.

Stayed just one night while passing through. Nice campground, clean and quiet. We were placed in a back-in site that was level and everything functioned well. Friendly staff, no problems at all.

We stayed here for four nights for a special event at Holiday World. It is the perfect location if you are headed to the amusement park, it is an easy walk or a quick shuttle bus ride. Overall it is not a bad campground, it has several areas that are very spread out, which is why I guess they rent so many golf carts. While their facilities are generally good, I found that bath houses were in somewhat poor shape, and while mostly clean, there were times during our stay when they were worse than others. The staff was very friendly, and the shuttle drivers were excellent. They even ran late shuttles to support the event we were going to. We also spoke with the manager at length and he seems genuinely concerned about us having a good stay. Our site was a premium concrete pad next to the lake, but it was not remotely level, with an incline towards the lake. We also plugged in to find the power had a bad ground. Maintenance was out very quickly to fix it, but he could not find the problem so he simply flipped the 20 and 30 amp lines. Not a problem for our small trailer, but could be for larger units. Sites were close together but easy to find, though there are a few tight turns.

This is a very solid KOA, close to Six Flags St. Louis, with a very friendly, helpful staff. Check-in was easy. We were placed in a gravel pull through and guided to the site. Good thing we were as the sites were not well marked and you could easily pull into the wrong one. It was a little off level, but everything functioned correctly. Site was a little overgrown, grass all around the park was not too long, but was due for a cutting. We stayed midweek to visit Six Flags for a convention, did not spend much time in the campground during the day. At night it was very quiet, even with the highway close by, I didn't pick up on much road noise. Bath house was clean and well maintained, and the store was nice and well stocked. Staff was both friendly and very knowledgeable of local attractions. Would stay again if in the area.

Visited this campground for a few nights to visit Adventureland and the surrounding area. I pulled in with no reservations but they had no trouble placing me right where I wanted, by the walkway to the park, so it was just a minute walk from my door to the park gate. Dated, but clean, well kept campground. Everything functioned well. Site was a bit off level, with a sinkhole to one side, and showed its age. Several sites showed brand new concrete pads, but they seemed to only be as wide as the campers, with drop offs on the edges. All roads and sites are paved, and the park is very well laid out. Bathhouse was very clean but also dated with no climate control. Check-in was a breeze, very friendly staff as well as campers, many of whom are work campers working at the park. Park also had a nice pool and arcade, playgrounds, and dog runs for both small and large dogs. Will stay here again when in the area.

Great campground for a stopover or to explore the area. Pulled in on a midweek afternoon got the last site available. Very nice, clean facilities, showers were great, with good pressure and hot water. Very friendly staff, a nice store with a few RV supplies. Sites are all pull through, gravel, and level. All utilities worked well, including WiFi. Only downside is the campground is very open, there are only a few young trees. Sites are close, but not too bad, with a grassy area between each.

The nicest state park campground I have ever stayed in. Beautiful, fairly level, spacious sites, some with tree cover, others in the open. Good electric, but no water at site, and no sewer, though a very nice dump station was available. Even had good wifi at site. Modern, clean bath house. Everything was well kept, nice hiking trails and a swimming lake. Nice new playground. Camp hosts were very friendly. Being that it was just a few miles off the interstate, I used this as an overnight stop, but wish I could have stayed for more. If in the area, I will return.

There was a time, many years ago, when this was a great campground. That is no longer the case, as it is now run down and in poor shape. Sites are very close together and just unmowed grass, with picnic tables that are falling to pieces. On the plus side, they were at least level. Electric was good but water was terrible, with so much rust in it that it clogged my filter immediately. The showers smelled of the rust as well, I just turned it back off and decided to wait until my next stop. Many, many well established seasonals in this campground. Some keep nice sites, others not so much. Roads were worn down, as was the mini golf course, and parts to a ride were scattered about the tennis courts, which had not seen use in a very long time. The water play area looked nice, the camp store was well stocked and staff was very friendly. Campground is only worth a single night if visiting the amusement park.

The bath house was the only negative to the stay, it was designed poorly, with little ventilation and no climate control. There was no curtain between the shower and the small changing space, so water splashed into the area onto cloths and towels, and because there was no drain there, it puddled so you were stepping into several inches of water when you came out of the shower. Several showers were broken and out of order for our entire stay. It also could have used better, more frequent cleaning. All sites are concrete pads, with little shade, though trees have been planted. The site was level and everything worked as expected, and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The grounds were well cared for and the pool and hot tub were very nice.

Nice campground for an overnight stop. Site was level with good electric and water as well as a deck to pull up to. Sites are close, as is the highway, so expect noise which is made worse for tent campers as they are closest to the highway. Facilities were clean and well cared for. Nice looking pool and playground, lots of activities. Staff was very friendly and lead me to my site, even though it was only right across from the office. Would stop again if passing through the area.

Our third weekend of camping in a row took us to Small Country Campground. A pig roast for all campers that weekend is what attracted us, but it turned out to be just some BBQ, that was just OK, and a few sides. They actually ran out of food! People there were friendly, but the campground itself was just OK. They would only honor Passport America on Thursday night, even though their listing shows no weekend restriction, and then because of that one night discount they wanted to charge us for the "pig roast" at 12 a head. They seemed very confused. The sites were OK, the one we ended up in was a decent size pull through with good water and electric. Many sites were very, very close together, most were not even close to level. All sites and roads are gravel, very few pull thru, most are back in sites (we were on a corner, it pulled through across the corner). The bath house was dated but very clean, but showers offered very little hot water. Pool was already open for the season and looked nice, and they had a very nice mini golf course, one of the best I have seen at a campground. I don't know that we would return to this campground.

As others have said, this is a newer park, and the RV camping is basically in a big gravel field. There are trees, but they are young and offer no shade at all. Hook-ups are water and electric only, no sewer. Sites are gravel and level, everything was in good working order. The restrooms and showers are very nice, modern and were very clean. I noticed they were cleaned several times a day. Staff was very friendly and helpful, even in the rain all weekend. Only real problem we had was getting to the campground. We came in in the early AM dark and as you approach the amusement park you can't see the signs for the campground, the entrance is hidden to the left before the parking lot toll booths, where there is a lit sign. A lit sign on the road would have been very helpful. The main reason for visiting is the amusement park, but this is a good jumping off point for other local attractions, and the campground itself has activities as well. On our visit they had a Mothers Day pancake breakfast that was excellent. Overall it is a bit pricey for a W/E site, but still a nice place to stay and we plan to return.

Just stayed for a very quick overnight while on the way south. Did not see the campground in the day light, but can say the bath house, while dated, was clean and well maintained and the woman I spoke to on the phone was very pleasant. I was also pretty dark and very quiet. Sites seemed close from what I could tell, but campground was not busy. Price reflects Passport America rate.

Second review of this campground, my last stay was more then a year ago. Not much has changed since then, the campground is well maintained, clean and very functional bath houses, and very friendly staff. Price remains very high for an electric only site, but you are paying for convenience to the amusement park. Our site was fairly spacious, shaded, and level, but not all sites are the same. Roads are paved but tight. It is the perfect campground for visiting the park, which is outstanding.
