This is a very nice well designed resort. It is worth the 5 mile drive down a 2 lane country road to get there. We stayed in a premium site, which is $69 a night. But with all the taxes and fees, the true cost was $80+. The only thing that would have made this park a 10 for me was if there was a hot tub and a workout room. The challenging part, if anything, is that most of the resort is built on terraced slopes so a lot of what you want to do is either up or down a pretty good grade. I would still highly recommend it though. I will stay here on my next trip through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a beautiful and well-maintained RV resort. We stayed for a month and enjoyed our stay very much. All of the sites are ample sized and have great views of the mountains and Douglas Lake. When we first arrived we were assigned a site that was sloped too much for us to get our 45' motor home level. The owner accommodated us by allowing us to choose a site that worked for us. The staff is very friendly, the owner is always on site and he will do anything he can to make your stay enjoyable. The facilities are exceptional and everything is kept clean and inviting. We highly recommend Anchor Down and plan to go back next year for a month. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is truly a resort. Many places claim resort in their name but this place really lives up to the title, with first class service and amazing views, sites, and amenities. All paved sites with great in-ground fire pits or above-ground stone fireplaces . The swimming pool was equipped with a great slide and bathrooms were individual "family style" rooms. Staff was very helpful and delivered firewood to site prior to our arrival. We can't wait to return here in the fall. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the nicest campground we've ever stayed in! Beautiful views, large sites, all paved and concrete pads, beautiful fire pits and fireplaces on some sites. It's close to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and Smoky Mtns. Some very good restaurants in the area. It's clean, spacious, and managed extremely well. Beautiful pool! I can't say enough good things about this place! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful park on the lake with awesome pool. The sites are large and some premium sites have free standing large fireplaces. Gorgeous views from site 43. Only complaint is that most of the campground has zero trees and therefore no shade. Could be much more beautiful campground by either leaving trees when building grounds or planting trees if none were there. That's the reason I rated the park an 8. Would camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent CG in every way! This one beats Disney's Fort Wilderness or any ocean front site. Camped here in a Class C with view of Douglas lake from front of coach. The owner's have really put a lot of money and detail into planning this RV Resort. Hookups are well placed. I had no problem with the "Arizona" feel landscaping-just added to the neatness of everything. Can't wait to book a return visit. The office staff are Excellent, too! When word gets out about this "paradise in our back yard" it'll be hard to get a site! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a beautiful park overlooking Lake Douglas just a short distance from I-40. Excellent landscaping, all paved sites and patios with picnic tables, and plenty of room on most sites for big rigs. Nice pool although crowded with children when we were there, but there is also a dock and a lake swimming area. Many sites have direct lake view but all sites have some lake view since it is on a hillside. The place is new and bathrooms and facilities were perfect. Only problem we had is getting level. Many of the sites slope considerably and our front wheels were off the ground. We saw one DP with rear axles off the ground. But most of the "premium" sites looked more level than standard sites. We would go here again but would be sure to pick a level site next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Admittedly without a large sample size, this place clearly strikes me as the difference between a "park" and a "resort." For those who prefer ANY element of "roughing it," I'd suggest looking elsewhere, but otherwise one would be hard pressed to find anything to complain about here. Easy to locate and access, wide open on-site navigation, spacious and level concrete sites. Friendly and helpful staff. Spectacular views on Douglas Lake and excellent recreational amenities, including a pool with big water slide from which we had to pry our young grandson. Granted, this place is a bit pricey, at least compared to our other experiences, but definitely falls into the get-what-you-pay-for category. We will certainly return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The owners obviously spent a fortune on hard-scape to put this campground on a slope down toward the water. It is severely lacking in green, though. I almost felt like I was in Arizona or something. Lots of pavement, rock, but not much shrubbery or trees. Staff was real friendly, facilities fantastic. View was awesome. Great Wi-Fi. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I will say this is one of the nicest parks I have stayed in to date. I have covered over 350K miles in my RV and have stayed in most almost every state in the union you can get to. The view is fantastic, and I fear that it will be impossible to get a site here soon. The resort area of the Smokies is always packed during the fall but this place is a bit more expensive then most of them, and that might help out a bit. First time I think I have been happy for an expensive park. The views are amazing and the power is strong and the water pressure is good. They have cable TV, too. The sights are large. It has stamped concrete and they ask you to put boards under your jacks. I have air leveling so there is no issue there. The sites are either down by the lake, on the lake, or up top a bit overlooking the lower sites as well as the lake and the mountains are in the background. It is a wonderful location and they have an area for kids to play in the water. They are building boat docks so you do not have to pull your boat every night after being on the water. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great new RV Park. Friendly folks and family oriented. Great view of Douglas Lake. Boat ramp. Shoreline fishing. Playground. Beach volleyball.. Pool with water slide. This is our second stay and have another one booked for December . We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a brand new park, no mature trees for shade. The pads are fairly level, no boards needed. They do request you use pads for your jacks, if you don't have any they can provide them. The park has really nice landscaping, the views of the lake and Smokey Mtns. in the background are beautiful. I met the owner and he is a really nice guy that works hard to please his customers. Only problem we had was we had to leave earlier than we reserved. I didn't expect a refund, but a free night voucher would have been nice. Will definitely be back here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
On of the best resorts we have ever visited. There is not a bad site in the entire park. The owners are great people and very friendly. WiFi is super fast. All sites are concrete pads and perfectly level with great water pressure. Many of the sites have large beautiful fireplaces, too. Golf cart rentals are also available. The park is built on the side of a mountain with 4 different levels/tiers with amazing views of Douglas Lake from all sites and even the pool. It's a must visit destination. It also has a boat launch and sand beach to swim in the lake. The owner has future plans to also build a convention center on the property for rallies and club events. There are a lot of interesting attractions in the area if that's what you enjoy. You will not be disappointed. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped Memorial Day weekend and from the time we arrived at the resort they exceeded all expectations. Check in was very fast and professional. We choose a Signature site which had a very nice fireplace and was large. The views from anywhere in the resort are breath taking of the lake and mountains. The bath house is tile and granite with individual showers and dressing area . Pool area was perfect and water crystal clear. This is a AMAZING place to stay. I met the owners and from speaking he strives for excellence and wow did he achieve his goal. I can't say how perfect this resort is. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent 5 days at this lovely new resort. The owners and camp hosts are very friendly and helpful. Our site was atop a hill overlooking the lower part of the park with a magnificent view of Douglas Lake and the Smokey Mountains. Absolutely stunning! We were in the shade because of large pine trees. It many of the sites are sunny. Verizon signal was 4-5 bars but the resort WiFi was very fast. Cable TV was free and most sites will have good satellite access. This is a beautiful, well thought out place to stay. We will definitely be back! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is brand new resort just east of Sevierville, TN. This is a resort, not a park, with paved roads, concrete pads, and full hookups. If you're looking for rustic, go else where. The signature sites have awesome outdoor fireplaces and wood is available at the office. The owner has big plans and has done a great job laying out the resort, and it was a pleasure to stay here. The views are excellent! It's a short 10 min drive to 66 and you'll bypass most of the construction. Make sure to take exit 412 off 40 and head south on Deep Springs road. Much shorter trip, and there's a Love's truck stop at that exit. We will definitely be staying here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We used this RV park as an overnight stop on a long trip. It is just a short drive from I-40 and you cross a long narrow bridge just before getting to the park’s entrance. It’s a combo marina, rental condos, RV park, and casual fine dining restaurant The complex is only two years old. Somehow they lost our reservation that was made a few days in advance, but getting a site was no problem since we were here in the off-season. Maybe half of the sites were filled with newer, modest RV’s, set up for extended stays with PVC pipe for sewer hose, and real patio furniture. The one and only pull-through site was occupied by a long term camper. Our site was a back-in which overlooked the cove. Spacing was good, minimal road noise from Route 92, some nice landscaping details, but no picnic table or fire ring. Utility connections were fine, cable TV had thirteen channels. Did not try the Wi-Fi. Restrooms over by the docks were clean when I checked, but there didn’t seem to be any showers. Lots of litter around the lake, but maybe during the peak season more effort is put into cleaning that up. Having been on the road all day we had dinner at the resort’s restaurant, Angelos at the Point. The place features outdoor dining and an outdoor bar; both overlooking the lake, but both were closed this time of year. If you check Trip Advisor, this restaurant gets mixed reviews. They were pretty busy the night we were there and we thought the food was really good. Overall it would be a decent place to stay for a while, but for us it was an expensive overnight stop. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The total per night including tax is $46.50. Small campground with level gravel sites, great electric, good water pressure. Except for 1 pull-thru site (which would accommodate a big rig) the sites are back-in. There is no bath house, no playground and no pool. Good location overlooking Douglas Lake not far from I-40 (exit 415 or 417). The bridge from Dandridge (SR92) is two-lanes but narrow. I had to pull the passenger mirror in. It is 8 miles from the Bush Beans cafe and general store/museum. It is about 16 miles (via US411) from Serierville/Pigeon Forge. Nice quiet location. Good restaurant and bar on-site, with deck overlooking lake. Boat ramp access and docks. Very friendly folks. They also have villas that are rented if family coming without RVs. Would recommend reservations. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We chose this park because of the description on the website and because of its close location to the interstate. We made it across to see an empty parking lot and a restaurant, a small apartment building and what looked like a small parking lot for RV's. There was no place to check in so my husband got out and walked across the lot to the restaurant to find someone. The person in the restaurant called someone from the apartments to check us in. There were about 5 or 6 trailers with no one there. About 3 trees in the middle of a parking lot. There was no showers or toilets, just parking with hookups. Warning, If you have a Motorhome getting across the "tiny bridge can be a nightmare. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is located 5 miles from Dandridge and 6 miles from Newport with easy access from I-40 or I-81. Dandridge is a charming old town on Douglas Lake. Smoky Mountains are not too far away. The new owners are really trying to improve the park and a new name will be part of the change. It is a quiet, pleasant place to spend a few days. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
RPI rate for this park. RPI can't know what this park actually is. Entrance off Oak Grove Rd is steep down hill. Sites are on the hill side, very narrow and not level. Sites are not designed for larger RVs and NARROW. With slides open you hang over the next slab. If you don't line up the wheels of the RV on the edge of the slab you are over the edge of the site & downhill. Hookups are at the far back of the site. I used up the whole length of the space with the 34' fifth wheel & no place to park the pickup. Additional hose length is needed to reach the pedestal. 30 amp only & no circuit breakers. Mostly long term residents and poor attitudes, barking dogs and late night parties. Temporary or short term sites are poor and the interior roads are dirt/gravel and very narrow. The pool is locked. The lake is very low, no access. The fishing pond is sludge & scum. No laundry. This is not a typical RPI resort, definitely not PREFERRED. We would NOT return to this poor excuse of a campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very old and run down. Web site says they take Passport America and other discount clubs, but when we asked they said not on a holiday weekend. The web side did not say they excluded holiday weekends. We only stayed one night. We walked by the shower and bathroom area and the doors were open. We did not go in as it looked very dirty and run down. Many of the sites have permanent old RV's and trailers on them. There is a pool and small playground area for kids and a laundry room but way over priced for what you get. We will not come back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park but I had to move between sites to get one with a working 30A box. And, when I hooked up, there was a loud noise from the inside circuit cabinet and smoke rolled out of the entrance box. After disconnecting and airing out the inside, I moved to a different site with no problem but the damage had been done. A Very large voltage spike ruined my AC/DC converter (capacitor exploded) in a 5 year old Intelli-Power. Camp manager gave me a substitute DC charger, was sympathetic and said to contact the owner. No response a week later. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Comments are the same as for the last entry. Only good for an overnight stay. If 40' MH the park is tight, but you can make it. Park is not worth the $18 PA rate. Would not stop again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is the Passport rate. About 4 miles off of I-81. Maybe 2 miles from I-40. Lots of noise from I-40. Strictly a level place to park for the night. Self service. You arrive and call the owner. He gives you instructions how much and where to pay. You open the gate and let yourself in. Close the gate behind you. Lots of permanent residents. Good electricity. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had called the campsite several times to make sure they could accommodate us, it was difficult to get them on the phone which should have been the first clue. We arrived to a completely empty, closed for the season site and via phone told to pick any site and put our money in an envelope. The bathrooms were closed for the season and electricity at the site shut off, contrary to what we had been previously promised. Whoever was on the other end of the phone made it clear he had no intention of coming over to help us, he didn't care whether we stayed or left, so we left. I can appreciate that this late in the year and at a Passport America rate we shouldn't expect much, but this campground outright lied to us. So far we have traveled near 50 campgrounds in 6 months and we put this at the bottom because if management. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is strictly an "overnight" campground. Everything is done over the phone and honesty method. A rolling fence is in place. You have to let yourself in an out. The water quality was so-so. It was close enough to the highway to feel secure. We were the only campers there for the night. Plan your exit if you are there in a longer unit. One site is best to pull through and around. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
