We stayed here four nights in November. We backed up to the river and the nearest occupied site was six away. Campground was clean, staff helpful in leading us to site and helping get backed in. Was a little tight because of the trees but sites are good size, although with a large unit on either side, it may get a little close. There are a large number of apparently at least semi-permanent residents along the row nearest the highway but they are well maintained for the most part. Park is handy to I-40 and the tourist sites in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg if you take the trolley; pick it up at Walmart. Staff gave recommendations for places to eat that were great. Down side was spotty internet and the fact that you have to make a right turn out of park, meaning you have to find a place to turn around to get back to I-40. Not a problem in November but would not want to try it in July. Rate was with GS discount.

We were here one night and were the only RV. The park is difficult to find; our GPS could not find it. Finally found a cop who gave good directions. Also, the staff was impossible to find; never saw a live body other than a few tent campers. Called the number on the website and always got voice mail but no callback. Finally sent email and did get response but it may have been automatic. When we left, put cash in an envelope and dropped it in a slot. This campground may be fine in summer when the Katy Trail is busy and it was fine for a one nighter but we probably would not stay here again.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here six nights and will stay here again. Only down side (some will say up side) is there is no cell service at all and the internet service is very iffy and slow when it does work. Were able to get a few cable channels; don't know about sat TV. The laundry and restroom/shower facilities were the best we have seen anywhere. The sites are large and clean. There is a creek and a lake on site and fishing available if you have a permit. Staff was very helpful. Campground is not on Ft Knox but is military only. About six miles to the Fort and 20 to Elizabethtown. We also went to Bardstown and Glendale; scenic areas especially with the fall colors. There are also a number of distilleries within reasonable driving distance. Would be a 10+ if our phones worked.

We stayed here for six nights and will stop here again. By being careful with water, we did not need to dump until we left. We used the laundry and it were satisfactory, although other military campgrounds have better facilities. Lots of open space for our dogs to run with a lake and shelters. Our site (#5) was spacious and shady although the water hydrant was on the door side and was a stretch to reach with my hose. Coming on base was uneven as only one of us has a military ID; sometimes we were waved through and sometimes they wanted to see a pass. We finally got the pass and no more problems. Trees were beautiful. Only down side was lack of sewer. Otherwise would rate it higher.

Campground is handy to I-40 and there are adequate services available. Apparently all 50 amp sites are in one area so it was crowded. Sites are close together and a tight fit in and out but doable. Sites are not level; we had two tires off the ground getting level and others had the same thing. WiFi was weak (two bars) but worked eventually. Staff friendly and helpful; sent us to a great all-you-can-eat catfish place. Premises neat and well kept even with a number of apparently permanent residents. Rate is with Good Sam discount. We will stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Easy access off I-40. Sites are set up so that one set of utilities can serve two sites; therefore the door sides of RVs face each other but there is plenty of room between units. Little to no grass. I rated it as a 7 mainly because of the airport, I-40 and railroad noise. May not be a problem in well-insulated units.

Camped here after Labor Day and it was less than half full. No campers in sites next to us and that was a good thing, as it would be too tight if campground was full. Sites are laid out in a circle with front of the camper to the inside of the circle, so hardly enough room to walk between spaces at that end. Only saw a manager once at check in and had to wait on him for half hour to get around to checking us in, and this was early afternoon, not night. Saw a little trash along the river. On the good side, power, water pressure, Internet service were all fine. Was able to pick up several TV stations on antenna, even though that is not mentioned anywhere. The daily rate is with Good Sam. This place is fine for a few days but there are better parks in Charma, at higher price.

This park is within 2 blocks of the main street of Silverton. Easy walk to any of the stores and restaurants and the D&S depot. At 9000+ elevation, it gets cold at night in September but the days warmed up nicely. Like everything else in Silverton, this park is a little overpriced but is quiet except when the trains arrive and depart. We will stay here again.

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend and it was full to the point they posted a sign on the office door saying tent spaces only. All services except cable worked fine. Spaces are roomy, most with grass. Management was friendly and helpful, not that we needed any help. We were on the front row next to the highway so noise was somewhat of a bother, although we also have stayed several rows back from the highway and did not notice noise. Rate shown is week night with Passport America discount.
