Pluses: Lots of Halloween activities for the kids, nice clubhouse, and firewood delivery right to your campsite. Outer loop spots are decently spaced but inner loop look hit-or-miss. Minuses: Roads are in terrible condition - doesn't look like they have put fresh gravel down in a year so the potholes stayed a muddy mess even when it didn't rain. WiFi was useless - it was crowded, but we couldn't log on even once the two days we were there. Playground is small.

Pluses: Convenient to I12, friendly staff, quiet (except for fairly high one-night camper traffic), Kamp K9 was in rough shape, but they were starting a complete remodel of the dog park as we left, nice pool/hot tub, and decent camp store. Spots have concrete pads and paver patios. Minuses: Most spots have no grass (all gravel). While the spots are long enough for most rigs, they are VERY close together. Access roads are rough, and while the showers were kept clean, they are long overdue for an overhaul. If they only charged $30/night, I would have given them a 7 instead of a 5 at $46/night. Would look for a better campground in Baton Rouge before staying here again.

Convenient for an overnight stop. Sites are well space with grass in between, but absolutely no shade. Completely first come/first serve; pick a spot and put cash in an envelope (provided) and slide under office door. Office/shower house/dumpsters are at least 50 yards from the closest spot and 200 yards from the farthest. Wi-Fi was slow and became almost useless during peak time. Lots of long-termers with rough looking campers, but quiet. Will only stop here again as a last resort.

Very convenient to interstate and the best Wi-Fi we have experienced anywhere. Staff is very friendly and they provide you with a nice packet of information on the campground and the surrounding area (places to eat, get gas, Walmart). Lots of grassy and wooded common areas with gazebos, a large fishing lake, and level spots. The pool is very small, but well maintained and the office has long hours with a nice little store inside. Now for the not-good: Spots are narrow with little grass, roads need re-graveled, playground equipment is marginal, and the bath house is long overdue for a remodel (not dirty, but well worn and a long hike if you are in the upper spots). With a few more upgrades, it could easily work it's way up to a 10 in our book.

On the plus side: they have paved roads and level concrete pads at most sites, it's well maintained, and conveniently located on the north side of town so you don't have to fight the worst of the PF traffic in the RV. On the minus side: sites are close (we had 12 inches between our awning and the neighbors slideout), they don't take credit cards. It doesn't say that on their site or on the phone (cash, check, or debit card only.) And most of the river sites are across from the PF baseball fields, (noisy in the evening, but quiet after 9pm). We'll add this one to our "only if our favorite campground is full" list.

Very, very large campground is well staffed and maintained. They have as many rental RVs and cabins as sites, large pool with lifeguards, rental golf carts, rental boats, and frequent free shuttles to Holiday World. The roads are somewhat narrow and there are too many dangerous, unsigned intersections that make it unfriendly for kids on bikes/scooters (my main reason for a 9 rating). Go ahead and rent a cart as soon as you arrive or you will never survive the walk from the camp store/game room/lake to the pool!
Date of Stay: July, 2007
Level sites with decent spacing, trees, and grass. Combination fishing/swimming pond with entertainment on the weekends. Decent WIFI, but bath house is in serious need of a remodel (and bug spray)! Lots of children and dogs, nearby (busy) train tracks and small airport next door make it a little on the noisy side. We plan on trying a different park next time, but it is not off our list for future stays.
Date of Stay: September, 2006
An old KOA with friendly staff, good rates, and minutes from Green River Lake. Lack of road/site maintenance makes it tricky to maneuver, but is cozy with a low price.
Date of Stay: June, 2006
Sites are narrow, but typical for the area. Still no cable TV hookups. WIFI is available, but signal is very weak in a lot of the campground and their internet connection is intermittent. They were having sewer issues when we first arrived, but the staff worked hard to fix it. Plenty of shade and the staff is friendly, but the park is showing its age. Excellent location and quiet if you're not at the edge by the Parkway. On our next trip to Nashville, we will try one of the neighboring parks before staying at the KOA again.

Gets our award for nicest and cleanest showers. Well stocked and reasonably priced camp store, nice playground and pool, and the whole park is kept very clean. Sites are somewhat small and very few were level. Loose gravel roads and hills make it bicycle unfriendly. Plenty of family friendly activities and theres an open shelter with a bigscreen TV for evening get-togethers.
Date of Stay: March, 2005
Clean, quiet (except for the frogs) park with level sites and very clean. The sites are very close together with almost no grass or trees except along the dog walk by the creek and in the tent area; we suggest a creekside site to get shade on you backside. Fire rings and grills were rusted out and the lower bath house was still closed for the season making for a long walk to the upper bath house. Off-strip location but close to everything on the North end of town.

Our top recommended site in Pigeon Forge! Plenty of space between sites, level, clean, lots of shade but not clausterphobic. Just off the strip but quiet. Great location at the South end of Pigeon Forge; turn left for Gatlinburg or right for Pigeon Forge. PS: Stop by the Pepperidge Farm outlet on your way in to stock up on Gold Fish for the friendly, but not pushy, resident ducks.
