Beautiful view to the west, but windy on the hilltop. Good size sites, we stayed for a night, and would stay again.

Date of Stay:

The staff were great on check in. Roads and sites were paved and level. Grass between sites. The roads were wide and the lead ins and exits to the sites were widened to allow access to big rigs. We stayed one night, but would stay for longer if time allows. The campground was owned by the RV dealer next door. The dealer had an extensive inventory of repair parts and inventory.

Very convenient to Graceland. In town shuttle buses left from the Heartbreak Hotel, only a short walk away from my site through a gate. Upon check in, we were told about the site and how to get to the buses. Very helpful staff. Security at gate and guards made frequent runs around the campground. Although there was no dog park, there was a large field to walk you dog. Would definitely stay there again.

Date of Stay:

The owners of this campground take great pride in the campground, and rightly so. It is only about a year old, and the owners are still planting trees and bushes. The roads and sites are gravel, and my site was level. The owner led me to my site and made sure everything was well. It is convenient to I-81, but there is road noise from the highway. Due to the cold, we had our windows closed and did not notice it. We will definitely stay there again.

Stayed here before and would stay here again. Good sized sites, convenient to I-40, very quiet. Grassy area along the river to walk your dog, but no dog park. Roads are gravel, but wide. Easy access to all campsites. Close to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg (12 miles). Good experience at the campground.

All in all, it's a good campsite. The people working there were friendly and knowledgeable. Convenient to get to, and although close to the road, it was quiet at the back of the campground. It has a few shortcomings, including not enough 50 amp sites. Our site was a little short for our rig. The sewer connection was just under the water hook up, which I don't like. I would definitely stay there again.

Date of Stay:

Park office staff barely had time to greet us as they were talking to friends. Not the usual Escapees greeting we are used to. Dated facility catering to long stay campers. Site was uneven even in the Oaks section. Could only get my truck off the road by parking it parallel to the road. WiFi is Tengo, so it might as well have not been there. If I hadn't had an appointment for Smart-Weigh, I would have left sooner.

New owners and improvements make this a great place to stay. The pull-through I stayed in was very long and when I saw the site I thought it was not level. However, the first 75-80 feet were level and required no blocking. Site hook-ups were new, but as with many other newer campgrounds we stayed at, included the wastewater drain at the same pad. Campground was well serviced and clean, and was being updated even as we were staying there.I would definitely stay again and highly recommend this campground.

Very nice and well kept campground. Owners and staff involved in campground and with campers. Sites set up for big rigs and are level. Very good local TV reception and WiFi. The creek provided a place for my dog to swim, and was a pleasant place to walk. The "Watering Hole" was the gathering spot in the late afternoon, and gave us a chance to meet and talk to most of the wintering campers. Lots of good information was paassed around. Definitely will return.

Originally planned on 3 weeks, but left after 1. Had to have branches removed from trees to even ge on the site. Was told later that I was the longest rig they had put on the site. I was told by a neighboring site if I had a problem, it was not their problem, but mine. True- low water volume, my pressure regulator; low voltage, my EMS. Near the highway, but almost no road noise because of location, Nearby trains are active 24 hours of the day. Stone Creek had only stagnant water from the laundry discharge, gray and stinky. Probably ok for smaller units and short stays.

Rate includes $2 per night for 50 amp service and is the rate for Escapees. Wide, long grass sites. Quite level, but puddled after rain. Great staff and residents. We were immediately welcomed into the fold. New Years pool plunge--49 degree water. Went into the 'teens several nights so I could see why the pool was closed. There was always something going on, and you were made welcome. Excellent location - Gulf Shore, Foley, Mobile all close. Will definitely return. We were there fo three weeks.
