Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Park is sandwiched between I-40 and a local road with significant road noise. They charge a premium price for a poor facility. Sites are very cramped. My rv steps ended right on the neighbors sewer connection. The site next to us puts the rear corner of the rv a foot from the side of our trailer. Forget opening your awning or opening your basement door. As previously noted the cable is strange where you use the parks remote to change channels on a device outside your rv. The cable did not work on my site. You only get 2 over the air channels (ABC & FOX). The Channel Cable repair guy came the third night of our stay and still could not get cable to work on our site. As previously posted, the restrooms, showers and laundry have seen better days. Nice folks who run this park are great but as far as I am concerned the park is very poor.

Easy access, everything worked including Wi-Fi. Only staying a few days and wanted to stay closer to the interstate instead of being in the middle if the action in Pigeon Forge. This park fit the bill perfectly. Rained during my stay but the gravel sites stayed dry. Would come again for sure.

Date of Stay:

Rate based upon multiple day stay at Passport America rate. It was raining everyday of our stay and many sites were under water. Ours was not but it was extremely muddy. Its not totally treed but most sites have two mature trees that canopy the site. It's likely nice and shady in the summer but this time of year the trees drop twigs and small dead branches on your RV and vehicles. Its very noisy and you will need to shovel off your slides before leaving. The majority of the residents are seasonal/permanent and there are a significant number of unsupervised minors at the park. Most of the minors are well behaved but pay no attention to the quiet hours and were very noisy till after midnight. Only one restroom was open and while the sinks and toilets looked clean the floor was like the inside of a barn: very muddy (likely due to the constant rain). The laundry room on the other hand was very dirty and I used my finger to write my name on a dryer door in the dust. The park is certainly not worth the high daily rate (PA was $36) but you are paying for the great location.

Date of Stay:

Large park with residents turning over every few days. Large volume checking in each day and handled well by very efficient staff. The problem with this park is that the sites are short and tiny. There is hardly enough room for you RV and no room for your toad or tow vehicle. Everyone parks on the street making it impossible to back your RV in without getting others to move. The restroom and showers are very nice but there are too few for the size of the park. There are lineups constantly for both. The pool and hot tub looked very nice but were closed for the entire length of our 3 day stay.

Date of Stay:

Rate based upon a monthly stay in an ownership park. Local realtor rents out sites owners are not using. Large concrete sites with manicured lawns and trees. Everything is pristine, many activities, friendly staff and residents. I would return anytime and while I have rated it highly there were a couple of things that annoyed me. The park does its best to promote the them vs us (owner vs renter) mentality. Owners get a remote to open the park gate as they drive up. Renters have to stop at the gate and enter a code. One of the two clubhouses has a Wi-Fi hot spot, fitness room, pool tables, restroom, showers and office. The office closes at 4 and everything gets locked up shortly after. Owners get keys so they can use the facilities anytime. Renters are locked out. I asked the office twice if I could leave a cash deposit for a gate remote and clubhouse key. Both times the response was "only for owners". The other item that I didn't like was that some residents took their dogs to the pool. I noted this at both clubhouse pools. I shouldn't be surprised as in Florida you see dogs in bars, restaurants, malls and grocery stores but it creeps me out when I go to the pool.

Stayed here 5 years ago when it was unfinished and it was a good park. Now its a great park that has done most everything well. Stayed in a pull thru in the old part both times. The only thing that changed was the underbrush has been cleared out. As an example of the things done right, our 125' pull through was 14' wide pavement. (25' wide at the patio) In a majority of parks its not as wide, meaning your rv fits on the pavement but you step out onto dirt or grass. The only item not perfect was the Wi-Fi which was the same as most rv parks...useless.

Easy access with long and wide sites. Everything works except the WiFi. Bring something to sweep off your slides as you are in a pine tree forest and there will be pine needles and cones all over your RV. We really liked this park but will never return. The highway noise is extreme and even with ear plugs we were unable to sleep.

Really a beautiful park with large washed gravel roads and sites. No trees near roads or sites so its great for access and satellite but likely warm in the summer. Sites are spread out and while not super spacious, there is plenty of room in the park with many open park like areas. Wi-Fi is typical for an RV park. It works occasionally. The office shower restroom is in a 20 year old double wide that has not changed since it was constructed. The one restroom is clean enough with peeling vinyl tiles but contains only 2 toilets enclosed in shower curtains. There is one dirty and disgusting shower with a moldy shower curtain that appears original to the double wide. Great park if you never use the shower or restroom. Not sure why the ball was dropped on the facilities when the rest of the park is so nice.

Rate based upon monthly stay in 50amp site. We have stayed before and always enjoyed our stay. The landscape while not pristine, is very well looked after. The grass is always cut, trees constantly being trimmed and fallen branches taken away. One day the water service was shut off while I was doing laundry. I asked the people digging up the pipes about it and was told it was to repair a leak found the day before. It was only off 3-4 hours but some notice or a bulletin posting would have been nice. We suffered about 20 short power outages during our month. One neighbor disconnected and used his genny preferring not to risk the erratic (mostly high) power. Like the park but degenerating services are a concern.

Wonderful park and super value. Rate based upon a one month stay. Paved roads, packed sand sites, clean park. Easy in/out but sites are side by side and very narrow. With sand sites it is extremely dusty. I only have one complaint which has been voiced before. Being only inches from your neighbor, when they wash off their rv, you will get wet. The dust when wet will get your rv muddy. That being said, its a friendly park with great facilities and friendly staff. I would come again for sure.

Spectacular park, great location, extremely clean and well maintained. Rate based upon monthly stay with power extra. Would rate 10 except for 2 things. Park has a theft problem. At check in, they advise keeping all belongings locked inside your rv. A few locked their bikes outside and they disappeared. We had no problems. The Wi-Fi occasionally worked but usually not. I would come back.

Have stayed before when it was way cheaper (before KOA) and it was a cramped marginal park. At $50 its a real rip-off. Lots of children, snowy cable, very tight spaces and no changes other than a price increase, with KOA. I will not be back.

Well maintained, clean park. Water was off for the season but other services worked well. Great area for dogs with dog run and river/bush area for your dog to explore. Well behaved pets can treat the park as an off-leash area. The rules state dogs must be leashed but no one does.

Nice park close to interstate, clean, spacious, and well maintained. They are a little paranoid about water freezing. Not allowed to hook up water, only able to fill tanks. Was 37 overnight (forecast was 36) They have underground valves for water so it seemed a bit strange. My hose would freeze long before any damage to park facilities.
