This was our first time to Bear Cove. We will be back. The campground is new. The bathrooms are clean. WiFi signal is very good, which is important to us. The owner is very cordial and friendly. The kids enjoyed the pools. We would highly recommend Bear Cove for a great camping experience. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The owners and managers of this park do not care one iota for the guests. They are not helpful, do not keep the premises clean, overwork and poorly treat the work campers and generally have no business running a campground. None of the sites are level. You have to climb a huge hill to access the dog park. The tent sites are actually camper sites on cement slabs and no sites have shade. If you arrive after office hours, no one will help you locate your site, hook ups, etc. If you have any problems after office hours, the on site managers will not help. Appalling. The website promises all sorts of things that are not there. Pictures show beautiful mountains that cannot be seen from any of the sites. Instructions are given to work campers to not engage in conversation with guests!! Would never return as long as under same ownership. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Registering was efficient and friendly with assistance provided to back into the site. (That is very helpful here as the sites, like many campgrounds in Pigeon Forge, are slightly tight.) Facilities include two pools, playground, clean restrooms and showers and a fire pit at each site. Most sites back up to a hillside which provides a feeling of privacy. Wi-Fi reception and reliability was unsurpassed. Although it is a bit close to Veteran's Boulevard with slight traffic noise, this is also a plus because it allows you to avoid the congestion of the parkway. Learn a few secondary roads and you can get anywhere with a minimal wait. Many pads were obviously poured recently and are level, however it appears this is a work in progress as there are some unlevel pads on the backside of the park. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great RV park close to everything. Sites are paved but patios are gravel. Trash cans at every site was nice. Unlevel sites not a big deal but need to be fixed. This was easily corrected with the provided 2 blocks on the drivers side. I'm not sure if it was left over from previous campers, but our fire ring was stocked with fresh firewood. Not having all the common sense rules posted everywhere like most parks was nice too. This park is new and well maintained. They would have gotten a 10 if the sites were level. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was our first time camping here, however we go to the area 10 times a year. This campground is more out of the congestion and still close enough to walk to most attractions. The only drawback was no shuttle pickup at the park, shuttle station is about a ten minute walk. Really nice will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Paved road and concrete sites but our pad was not level. A manager told us they are re-doing all the pads which is a good thing. Nicely landscaped but not much space to park your vehicle. Although, there is a separate parking lot up the hill. Cable and WiFi connections were good. Helpful staff. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean and new RV park. Clean restroom/showers, nice laundry facilities, and nice facilities in general. Close to Dollywood, and like other camper said, you can hear the train whistle. The negatives: many sites aren't level, had to really lift the front and one side, small size cg (not negative to some), and no kids activities. Great voltage no matter the load. It will really be nice as the trees and shrubs mature. There were mostly full timers there, we just left and there were very few "regular" campers. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a wonderful campground with 2 pools, a fishing pond and a super friendly staff! All sites have concrete pads, picnic tables and fire ring. It is clean and well-maintained, and the closest park to entrance to Dollywood (you can even hear the steam train whistle!). We have now visited this campground x2 and will certainly make it our park of choice at Pigeon Forge. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff; Helpful and friendly Price; $41-45 per night, Monthly $425. + Electric. Site description; All sites are back ins. Roads are paved, sites cement, but very uneven, front to back and side to side. Our site was so uneven when we leveled our wheels on one side were off the ground. So we pulled out and put boards under the wheels then leveled. This year they did take out 10 sites and put in level pads. But if they only do 10 a year it will take 10 or more years to level all sites. We had full hook up with 50 amp electric. We back up to a drop off with woods behind us. Across the road from us you back up to a very steep bank. Parking your car/truck is very very tight. When we put our sun shades on our awnings they were almost on the other site. Sites are close, but this is norm in this area, except for a few RV parks. Our site. Not much room to park car/truck. We had to park our truck in a overflow lot up the top of the hill. Parking for at least 8-10 trucks. Amenities; 2 pools, one with a small play area aside of it. Two laundry rooms with individuals showers and toilet area. Both Very Very nice. No club house, just a small office. Very very small pond. There is a fee to fish. Not sure about the fishing. We did see a few ducks use it, also a large snapping turtle. There are a few benches around the pond, and it is a nice place to sit and relax or read. Phone/Wi-Fi/TV; Verizon had 4 bars. Wi-Fi in park worked great most times. If close to an antenna and no RV between you and the antenna, the signal was always good to excellent. When someone pulled in between us and the antenna the signal drop to fair to good. Sometimes it would go to poor/fair. But for the three + months we were here we used it about 90% of the time and it was good or better. There is cable TV with at least 40 channels. Dog Friendly; Yes, but next to no place to walk them to do their business. Very little grass, and were there was grass it was between sites, what little there was. Night Lighting etc.; good low lighting at night. No road noise at night. Book exchange; Tiny, tiny, tiny book exchange in each laundry room. Comments; Ideally located close to Dollywood and all Pigeon Forge attractions and many restaurants. About 6 miles to Smokey Mountain National Park. About 2 miles from Food City, 4 miles to Kroger, 6-7 miles to Walmart. Opinion; If we would return to work at Dollywood we would probably stay here again. If just visiting the area we would stay somewhere else. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our second trip to Bear Cove Village. The camp hosts are very friendly. They helped me back in and then provided boards to level my trailer. Yes, you need boards to level. I needed 3 2x6s on one side to level. The sites are very close together, but there are a few that have some space so that your picnic table is not next to your neighbors sewer hookup (1, 6, 11). The bathrooms are very nice and very clean. They are the individual style, private bathrooms with their own toilet, sink, shower, and locking door. They are also air conditioned. The campground has two pools that are nice but kind of small. The office/store is well stocked and reasonable priced. While we were here, they had a cookout with free hot dogs and hamburgers. Very nice. We really like this campground (just pick your site wisely) and stay here because of the close proximity to Dollywood/Splash country. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Sites can be very tight when they have cars parking across from your site. We were able back in but it was not easy with our 40 ft 5th wheel. It was close to most activities but far enough away from the road such that road noise wasn't bad. I think that I would look for a park with a bit more room the next time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It was a nice park with cement pads. We liked it because it is off the main road and not so busy. Sites were a little tight but we were gone most of the time see the sights. We would go there again and recommend to other people. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Newer park with concrete pads to park on. Sites were somewhat narrow and weren't big enough for us to park trailer (29ft) and truck without sticking out in the road. Pool was nice but small and playground was creekside and small also. A good park if you have a small camper or can get one of the few larger sites. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is great campground and good location. The bath houses were clean and plenty of room in showers and toilets. The owners kept campground very clean. If you need any supplies or something to eat, it's all at campground. You are only .4 of a mile from main strip, so if you don't want to drive you can walk to everything. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Here for the 4th time an maybe last. Staff friendly and helpful and park pretty clean. Sites were muddy after a rain and I know that happens but they need to do something about the run off. Cable TV was not very good, some clear channels but more that were not. Great WiFi. It looks more like its turning into a seasonal or full time park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My spot had a picnic table and there was a nice creek across the road from my site Pull through gravel site. I needed one board to level side to side. The access roads are good. Cable and free WI-FI work well. Many trees, but they are trimmed not to interfere with the sites. Lots of rain but the sites drained pretty well. Staff was very friendly. I was unable to leave my truck hooked up to my vehicle and still fit into the site. I had to park my truck at almost 90 degrees to the trailer to fit in my spot. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
With 2 pools, a lazy river, playground and a creek there is plenty of things to keep kids happy. The staff was friendly and happy to help. Our site, a pull through was not level front to back, but we had plenty of room between the other campers. We decided to stay an extra day and the staff was very accommodating finding us 2 spots on the other side of the campground because our sites were reserved by someone else for that day. One tip is don't feed the ducks, if you do they will come back everyday wanting more. All in all it was a great experience. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites are on the tight side. Staff isn't the greatest. Clean facilities. Has a small store/deli. Store was pricey but better than fighting the traffic. We had a loud neighbor otherwise this is a nice park!!! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Spent four nights and was mostly pleased. Sites are cramped, but actually about par for the Pigeon Forge area. Needed a little hands on supervision/application for the many rules listed. Lots of barking dogs and late night noise went apparently unchecked. Grounds were mostly well kept and location was great being close to strip and activities in area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a huge RV park, good atmosphere here. The sites are close together and are all gravel with concrete patio. Each section of the park has its own bath house. The park has a full time custodial and maintenance staff that are present 7 days a week. This makes for clean bath houses and grounds. The Wi-Fi is pretty good here. The park has 2 pools and a laze river for the kids. GREAT location, about a mile from the parkway. The Clabough's operate a convenience store/deli which also houses the campground office with everything you'll need from breakfast to gas to ice! They also sell basic RV supplies. We camp here often. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The staff was very pleasant. The park is clean,and the amenities are very nice--live music on the weekends. My only constructive comment is new guest should be taken to their camps site, due to the size of this place. I will be backnext summer, and who knows,maybe more often. We camped here in a Motorhome.
When we arrived to this campground we were greeted by numerous hungry ducks. The campsites were very close together. The lazy river was the best feature at this campground. Please don't forget your bug spray!! Bathrooms were very clean. The staff members weren't very friendly. I will not stay at this campground again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We moved to this park because the one we were staying in could not extend our stay. Clabaugh's is clean and quiet. There are shaded areas but ours was not because we needed a long pull through. It has 2 pools and they are well maintained. It's a bit high in price for what you get. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Photos on the website are all from the "long-term" section, not at all what we found in the short-term section. Sites are small, pack-and-stack, and very hard to access. Bathroom/shower in short-term was filthy; one of the shower stalls had no bench, hooks, etc., so the only place to put your things was the dirty floor; smoking in the bathroom isn't discouraged. The facilities in long-term were very nice and much cleaner, but venturing there got us dirty looks from the long-term campers. The pool is large and fairly clean but crowded; other campers seemed to have no courtesy for others--excessive horseplay, PDAs which weren't really appropriate around children. Most of the staff wasn't rude (one was). but also wasn't helpful. It's probably a step above staying in the Wal-mart parking lot, I can't imagine actually paying money to ever to back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Is not a wheelchair friendly park! Unable to get a wheelchair into the restrooms (huge step into it), has no large stall for toilet, and there is no handicapped shower available. I specifically asked if they were wheelchair friendly. They lied to me when I made reservations! Excessive garbage overflowing the garbage bins causing lots of bugs!! Not much for kids to do. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Did not spend much time at the campground, we were on vacation and were gone just about every day. We were right next to the playground which was nice for the kids. Not much traffic at night in the campground which was nice. After visiting there website I thought we would have a little more interaction with the staff. We only seen them when we checked in and we were there for seven nights. There are a few permanent residents. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Looking for a campground to go tent camping and picked Claboughs Campground. Not very impressed with the tent section. 20 foot of gravel in between the road and small creek.The campground has a major problem with ducks near the creek. Duck droppings every where. There were near 100 ducks quacking all night long. The bath house was clean and air conditioned. The pool and lazy river was great. The staff were perfect and very friendly. I think we will not be back. It would probably be OK if you were in a camper. We camped here in a Tent.
I would stay here if no other campgrounds were available. It is a very large park and full of full time residents. The spaces are gravel and very close together. There are only four restrooms/showers for almost 400 spots. Restrooms may be 100 yds away. The Cable tv was excellent, as was electric, water and sewer. Next time I'll try other campgrounds in the area first. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff is VERY friendly. This must have been the week for everyone to visit the Smokies, 2 hours to get into town, 2 hours to get out of town. The only way to get around town is to have a good GPS. I forgot how small the spaces are! We were in the front, I was able to get into the "front" Wi-Fi node fairly solid. They do have a bandwidth issue, when it gets loaded, you still get a good signal, but no DNS resolution. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First time here, and not very impressed. Sites are very close together, and had to really position camper just right to able to open awning. If our camper had slides, we would not have been able to use them the way the trees are positioned. Our site was long enough to have our camper in it (26') and had to park truck sideways in driveway/grass. There is a playground advertised, but none here. Heard that they tore it out very recently to do some renovations, but we were not told about it. With two little ones, this is very important to us and really wish they had mentioned it. Wi-Fi depends on where you are. We were in D133 and were told that the Wi-Fi doesn't work "in the back" for unknown reason. It will work sitting in front of the office. Our site was pretty unlevel, but not terrible. It was ok, but next time will try Pine Mountain, Riverbend, or River Plantation. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Three generations of family run the park and are very personable. Referred us to El Paso Mexican restaurant that was great! Park has a restaurant, grocery, gas, and RV parts store which was helpful. Purchased the RV park behind them and are underway to improve it. Great location and easy to reach. Does not have a dog run/park. The ducks are a nice distraction, very kid friendly, allows campfires in fire rings. Wood at nearby Kroger $4/bundle. For a resort park the slots are not tight, but not overly large either. We plan on visiting this park many more times. We stayed in section A, pull-through #40, 80' long, close to front of park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is not an awful campground, but could be much better. I think maybe the owners have just neglected the sites for a few years. The sites are small and offer a little patch of grass. However in most cases the grass is dirt or mud and fire rings are missing from many sites. The sites were gravel at one time but most of that is gone. My site was pretty much dirt. The overall appearance is best described as kind of shabby. The good things would be the location. Very near the main road in Pigeon Forge. Plus the trolley service actually stops inside the campground. The roads are paved which is nice for bike riding. Just wish the sites were better maintained. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We found it to be a very nice campground. The restrooms and laundry were very nice. The kids loved the pool, game room and snack bar. It was close to everything. The sites are a little close but they all are in Pigeon Forge. We would definitely camp here again. The staff was very nice and kept the campground very clean. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
First stay here. Staff very nice. Sites small and there were cables for tv running from site to site above ground, I think they were working on this problem. Kids on golf carts everywhere!! Would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is probably the best we have ever camped in. We will never stay in another campground when camping in Pigeon Forge. It was better than we could have ever imagined. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 3 / 10 ]
This was our first time at Clabough's. At check in the office was tidy, office workers were pleasant. Our site was cramped, un-level, dirty and very noisy. I could go on, but it would only sound like I had a bone to pick. I do not. We cut our stay a day short because of our experience, and we actually needed some sleep because of the noise. This was the worst campground experience in our 3 years of camping. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
4th time staying at GC. Stayed at site 114 site which was not level, and could not use awning due to having to park next to camper. However, this was not a problem due to shade trees. Sewer hook up was higher then camper outlet causing problems with back up and smell. Nice pool and playground they added, and as always, my child had fun feeding the many ducks that come to your camper. I will camp here again but at a different site We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground was very nice! Lots of shade, very clean, and the staff was very nice. Every evening we had a huge family of ducks come visit from the stream. Everybody seemed to get a kick out these ducks. Wifi was good but was down 1 night. The site was not level, so bring lots of wood to balance out your RV. Next time we are in Pigeon Forge, we will definitely come back and stay here! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great CG. Nice large spaces. They charged us for 2 sites since we had 9 people. Don't know why they couldn't just have a per person surcharge. Anyway, nice site, plenty of shade. Close to the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg action. We avoided commercial stuff and took a tour of the smokies, went to the Forbidden Caverns (fun) and just hung out. Had a problem with the valve on our black tank and Ricky's RV Repair was there within two hours and fixed it right up. Highly recommended. Nice guy too. Don't know why people complain about pulling out of this campground. I never had a problem with our 40' diesel rig. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Called for reservation while in route. Gentleman on phone said reservations not necessary. Wrong! Upon arrival staff was apologetic and very nice and tried very hard to find a space large enough for us (38') for the 4 nights. Found one for 3 nights and then had to move to a different site (didn't mind). We had car trouble and were unsure if we would be able to leave on time and campground reserved our site for one extra night just in case we had to stay. Staff was very helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay here again and again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great park. I have never given one a 10, but I think this cg rates it. We were on the creek and had ducks visit us everyday. The only improvement could be, the sites marked a little better, but surely not anything to complain about. The staff was great. I has a small electrical problem the first day and called the office. Less than 5 minutes a service man was there and took care of it. Clean, easy in and out. Quiet , even as close to the road as we were. I cant say enough good about the park. This will be our place to stay when we are back in Pigeon Forge for vacation. Wifi was good and free.Many staff people going around painting picnic tables, doing maintenance, and trash pick up at your site . We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very clean, staff was friendly and helpful. My only complaint is that we made a reservation 2 months prior and were placed right beside 2 other campers who also booked sites weeks in advance, while that doesn't seem bad, we were the only three campers on the entire road that had 15 other empty spots the entire week we stayed, we could at least have had some distance between us. Luckily we made friends with the other 2 campers and had a good time. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The staff was quite helpful to us. We booked three nights and they held two additional nights for us until we could run out to Townsend to see if we wanted to move there for the weekend. In this high volume season, I thought this was quite nice. We have no slides so the site was perfect for us spacewise. Most of the campers around us seem to be return visitors as we will be. Also it was quite warm for October so they still had their pool open. Most other campgrounds had already closed theirs. If we hadn't been on the go so much, I would have used it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice park, great location to visit all the major attractions in Pigeon Forge. Staff helpful and friendly. You check in at the Exxon station they have a great big store and restaurant. Two pools but no hot tub. We was in site 113 and it was unlevel but not enough that we couldn't live with it. Also had really poor WiFi signal in this site. Plenty of room to walk around, over all its a really nice campground. I gave it a 8 because of the unlevel site and poor WiFi signal. We would stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was year #5 here. We really like Clayboughs. We always try to get a space near the creek, and the kids love feeding the noisy ducks. Did I mention that the ducks were noisy? they are just plain LOUD. We love the Smokey's in the fall, and early October is after all the "Rod Week events". We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff has been accommodating to our request to stay an additional 3 days during a high season. Nicely laid out with wide roads and easy sites to either pull thru or back in. Has 2 swimming pools, one seems to be for small children. Nice laundry facilities. General store and restaurant are in same building as the office. Also has Exxon gas station on premises. Easy to walk to the trolley stops. Some seasonal people with nicely decorated and maintained sites. This is our second stay here and would return again. Also has free wifi. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We liked this campground , nice paved roads and a fair amount of large sites. Pull throughs have more room I think, some of the back in sites were small. There is a bunch of ducks 100 or more that gather at night near the bathhouse at the rear of the campground, pretty smelly. They have a nice store up front with a ton of supplies and restaurant. Nice pools and they have entertainment on Friday night and kareoke on Saturday night. Nice place to ride bikes and the Pigeon Forge Trolley has a stop inside the park. Good cable with lots of channels, but internet was slow. We will stay here again when we return, good value for the money. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park would have received a higher rating from me, but the drive from I-40 to get there was bumper to bumper at a snail's pace. The CG setting was very nice and well maintained. Staff was not real friendly, as I had to call a couple of times for directions to the CG (the directions made it sound like it was right off I-40). Pull thru sites are nice and we had a nice view of the stream. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Huge quiet campground, nice sites, nice sized concrete pads and paved roads, huge camp store and nice pools. Wish had a playground for the kids. Convenient location for vacationing, supplies and gas (convenience store on the campground). Campground has plenty of shade and is nice and flat for bicycle riding. Excellent selection of cable channels. Otherwise nothing special over any other campground in the area. Price includes 2 adults, four kids, and a pet with full hook-up including cable. Excellent value for the price. Will come back again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Fairly large campground with decent sized sites, some were pretty close together but really pretty much average for the area. Restrooms were reasonably clean and well maintained during a busy Memorial Day weekend with almost every site full. Country music entertainment at the campground pavilion on Friday and Saturday night. Campground office is located in a convenience store with quite a few supplies. There is also a smaller store in the campground with very limited supplies. Two swimming pools but one is very small. Campground was very busy and crowded but quiet time was enforced. Convenient location. Don't know if campground has WiFi etc. or not since I have no use for it. We will probably stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Overall the campground was nice and quiet. It is not a very good place if you have small children who like a play ground, they don't have one. When we arrived they had given our site that we had reserved away to a bigger rig. This upset me very much. This was our first big trip in a fifth wheel and we wanted a pull through site for the ease of setting up. They accommodated us in a different site, which turned out to be better after all. We met some really great people here. The food in the deli was really good, but a bit high in price. All in all we would stay here again, so that we could see some of the really nice people that we met while here. We stayed nine nights. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped at Claboughs during spring break this year. We had reserved a pull through site but when we arrived, the site had a tree keeping us from using our awning. We called and were given a few options to move to and selected a back in site. The management told us the campground was pretty much fully booked for the upcoming weekend even though there were several open sites. We hooked up and found the site we picked was fine. During the remaining days, only five to ten more campers came in the area where we were set up. Appeared to me the management was trying to cluster the campers together to make it easier for their clean up crews. The campground was quiet and clean. The showers were clean and all were working with the exception of one. We used the laundry room and it worked fine and was reasonably priced. Claboughs is located off the main traffic of Pigeon Forge and is a good location to visit the area. There was a new grocery store within a half mile and Clabough's had a store and gas station on the site. There were two pools at the campground that looked to be in fine shape but it was way too cold to even think about getting into it. I did notice when I dumped my tanks before leaving there was some overflow out of the sewer hookup below our site. I would recommend you stay on the higher ground or in the middle of the flatter areas. I would recommend this campground. It was worth the price we paid. It had a good selection of cable channels and was easy to get in and out of when we left for a day of looking around. I rated it an 8 because of the sites being a bit tight in spots and the management maybe not being totally truthful about what was going on. I have to give them the benefit of the doubt and say maybe there were a 100+ cancelations. We will camp there if we visit again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camp at this campground 4-5 times a year and have never had a problem, the owners are great and have done so much to fix up the campground.They bought the back section a few years ago and have added concrete pads at all the sites. We prefer the back section only because it is less packed with bigger campers. The sites are level and the store and snack shop are always stocked. The food is great that they serve during breakfast and lunch and having the trolley there is great for people who want to save gas. Come and see why I love this place so much. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Our favorite campground in Pigeon Forge. Owners were great and keep a very clean campground. 2 pools and weekend karakoe made the weekend very fun. Oldest son fished in the river and my youngest 2 children loved to feed the ducks in the campground. If you have family who do not have a camper then they may rent either a vacation home or log cabin home for less than a hotel stay on the strip. Store makes a great breakfast and lunch and it is very reasonable. You may catch the trolley right in the campground also. We camped in the back "D" section better section for pop-ups and such. The paved roads make it easier for kids riding bikes or golf carts to travel around the campground. I would recommend to anyone and we camp here at least 4-5 times a year, can't wait till spring!! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Large campground. Staff is not willing to work you on finding a site. Several sites are uneven and some very difficult to back into. The sites have not had stone placed for many years and have ruts. Knowing how some of the sites were, we recorded the sites we felt would be able to accommodate us. We called for reservations for one these sites. We were told that they have 310 sites and there was no way she could put us in a requested site. Will not stay here again unless managment changes. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The park was very clean. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The park is pet friendly, which is great if you have pets. However, hearing dogs barking didn't rank high on my list for a relaxing weekend. The only other negative to mention is that some sites such as the one we stayed on (55) is very small. It would have been almost impossible to sit around a fire without catching someone's RV or vehicle on fire. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice park with good interior roads. The sites are level and well maintained. It is quiet, neatly kept with a friendly staff. WiFi coverage is spotty. Park location is handy to the attractions in Pigeon Forge. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed in this park for two weeks. It's location in Pigeon Forge makes it somewhat in the middle of all of the activities in the area. We like going to the national park and this park is just a few minutes drive from there. There was confusion about trash pickup for several days, but problem was then solved. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice setting along Walden Creek, not far from the main strip in Pigeon Forge. We found this to be a great park with clean bath house, great WiFi, nice clean grounds. The staff was very friendly and helpful. This was our first time here but after looking around at other parks in the area, we will coming back to this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a great park in the Pigeon Forge area. We found the park to very well maintained. The pool was nice and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. It rained about every day but we were able to float the creek in tubes a couple of times and really enjoyed it. The bath house was clean each of the times we used it and we saw the staff clean them several times a day. We have stayed here several years ago and will continue to come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good Wi-Fi, water and electric. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Close to town, but far enough away to be quiet at night. That's the good, but this is the first campground in the last 8 months where I would not use the bathrooms. Gave them 2 chances, but no go with me. And if it rains the drainage is a no go. The place is a swamp. I would not call it overly big rig friendly, but it is certainly doable. We would probably camp someplace else next time and maybe even out in Townsend or Wear Valley. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First time back here in a year or so and as usual it was fantastic. They have done away with the trash cans and now pick up your trash a couple of times a day at the site. We camped on the stream and that was very nice to hear the water. Close enough to everything that we rode our bikes and used the vehicle to get around. Bikes were much easier than sitting in traffic. This is our favorite park in Pigeon Forge and we come several times each year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent park!! Very clean and extremely quiet. We had a spot on the stream. Perfect at night with a fire and hearing the water. I was skeptical about this campground due to the pictures on the website....looked old and/or outdated, but it is a Passport America park and we did receive a free night for being a member. When we arrived I was happy in many ways. First off it is close to the parkway but tucked in off of a side road so you do not hear any road noise of any kind. Second, when we pulled in the campground looks very new. I believe the web site needs updated badly. It is very nice. Bath houses were exceptionally clean. Did not use them but took a look for the heck of it. Very nice pool and crystal clear. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. We did venture over to other campgrounds for the heck of it. And I will say this, Creekside would be my only choice of campground when visiting Pigeon Forge. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great park and the staff is very friendly and very helpful. This is a Passport America park and only takes cash or checks. Very close to all the action but far enough away to be quiet. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I thoroughly enjoyed this park! There weren't many other campers here, so we stayed in site 43. We loved the stream right at our door, as well as the ducks that were always around And the people in the office were very nice. The restrooms were really clean, as well. The location was great; just off the strip, but literally minutes away. I didn't have a problem with a 42' Class A, but if it were crowded, I might've had more of an issue with it. I will definitely be here again in the future, and would recommend it to any families passing through. We used our Passport America discount, and paid only $18 for a 50 amp site. HOWEVER, you can only pay with cash or debit for the PA discount, and when I didn't have it on me, the guy in the office told me to just come back tomorrow and not to worry. I liked that. LOVED it, compared to some of the other parks that are right beside this park. The pool was closed for winter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is beautiful, with shade trees, paved interior roads, picnic tables, fire rings, and a creek. It's fairly well maintained. It has WI-FI and cable included in the base price. Sites 1 - 19 are against a very, very busy road. If you have a rear bedroom motorhome, you will not like the noise. Our site was very, very mushy and uneven. The trailer wheels sunk into the gravel. There was ample evidence of water problems at some sites with mushy sites, uneven RV parking, deep tire ruts and the like. WI-FI works well and the check in process was friendly and helpful. Like many RV parks, there needs to be more tree maintenance to keep tree limbs out of the way! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A great value. Plenty of space between sites with grass and trees, especially at the creek-side sites. Staff was friendly and very accommodating. Quiet with a park like setting. We enjoyed the birds and feeding the ducks. Price reflects PA with a creek-side site. We highly recommend. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Friendly staff, clean and no issues. Laundry facilities were clean. There is some traffic noise from the street that borders the camp ground. Septic hook ups were towards to rear of our site and had to use 3 segments to connect instead of the usual 1 or 2. We would camp here again but would explore different RV parks as there are many to choose from. Overall, clean park and everything worked. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a Good Sam park. The front desk got my reservation wrong but corrected it immediately. I was told there is a 3 night minimum which was waived since when I made my reservation I was not told this. Very considerate of the front desk; however, I don't see anything on the website about a minimum stay. This is a good park just off of Hwy 321. It's close to everything. If I had intentions of staying in Sevierville and Pigeon Forge just to go shopping and enjoying all of the regular tourist activities, I would love this park. My intention was to find a quiet out-of-the-way park where I could relax for a week and not hurry to do anything. This was my mistake as I had no idea how much Pigeon Forge had grown in the past dozen years or so. The RV sites for most of the parks, but by no means all, in the area are quite close. I have a space of approximately 2 feet between my awning and the slide out dining area of my neighbor. We have a concrete pad which is nice, and we are under a couple of shade trees. We parked the truck at an angle between the neighbor's shade tree and the front of our RV in order to keep it out of the road. Seems to be the norm for this park. The pool is a very small one ranging from 3 ft to 5 ft deep and is about 20-25' long. There is a wide but shallow creek running along one side of the park with a wide swath of green area for the doggies to go run a bit. Leashes are required. And owners appear to be properly picking up after their pups. I don't believe I would stay in this area again unless my intent was to just use my RV as a hotel room while I went shopping and to Dollywood. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pretty little semi-shaded site on the trolley route for Dollywood and Pigeon Forge, trolley 50 cents a ride. Helpful, great WiFi, good bathrooms and shower, nice little pool and cheap. Would definitely stay there again if we were ever to visit the area. We stayed in a motorhome. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for the week. Had two sites with the family. Loved every moment. Took the Trolley, and it is wonderful to sit back and read or talk while someone else takes you to where you want to go. They pick you and drop you off right at the front. Perfect. Bathhouse was clean and the laundry room was one of the cleanest I've ever encountered. As always we will stay there again in the future ASAP. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a nice park in a good location with friendly staff. The trolley runs through the park and is a handy way to get around town. Like most RV parks in town the sites were a little tight, and if the park was full it would feel pretty packed. Wi-Fi worked fine and was plenty fast. Our sewer hookup was in the back of the site and we had to buy an extension hose to reach it. We like this park and will be back again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Super nice little park. Nice staff. The $19 rate was via Passport America. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is it was FULL of de-composing leaves. I say 4 people collecting garbage every morning, so I know they had the manpower to rake them up. Leaves everywhere and a lot of them were beginning to rot!! They got on your cloths and all over your shoes. YUCK !! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is one of the tightest RV parks we've been in. Our first site was so tilted that it took our front wheels off the ground to level. The manager, worked hard to find us another site during their busiest time of the year. His kind attention was the reason we liked this park. Also very convenient to area attractions. Cable and Wi-Fi were good. Roads were paved, and there were cement pads for picnic tables. Trees provided shade but challenged pulling into sites in some cases. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Creekside was a wonderful RV park. We extended our stay two nights. Met very nice people there. Staff very friendly and helpful. Lots of rain but concrete pads and paved roads and rock made it very nice to walk at any time. Lots of dogs (we have one) but all well behaved and on leashes and controlled by owners (great way to meet people). Great place to stay...didn't want to leave but had to! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our 4th time in this park and I don't believe it has went down in anyway. In fact, it's probably better. The staff is friendly and accommodating and there's probably not a bad site in the place. It's far enough off the parkway to be quiet and close enough to be handy. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our first RV experience. We rented a Class "C" Gulfstream Conquest. We camped for four nights and had a wonderful experience! The trolley came right into the RV park, picked us up and we went all over Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. We had a grand time! Didn't have any trouble, however everyone at the park was always there if you needed anything. We showered at there facility because it was so very clean and nice to use! I give them an A+++++ We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our 3rd time staying at Creekside RV Park. The staff was excellent as the other 2 times. Our site (68) was excellent. Had some shade which was welcoming as temps were in the 90's. We are planning on making the trip to Pigeon Forge yearly and will be staying at Creekside RV Park next year. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Should you be looking for a campground in Pigeon Forge: this is the one! We stayed here the month of May. Not One disappointment. Folks that stay here are great repeats and the staff expresses why. They are good at their jobs . The grounds are well kept, the bathrooms are very clean. The trolley comes every hour. Lots of people used it as a means to get around. Sites can be a little tight for the largest rigs, but everyone is accommodated. We will definitely be back for the month of October. Hope to see you here. [The rate is for a monthly rate divided by 30.] We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice, clean campground in a great location for visiting Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and the surrounding area. Staff was friendly and helpful. Passport America rates during the week. Small pool but big enough to cool off in during the summer. We camped here for four nights and will stay here again when we're in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful campground. Extremely kind staff. We stayed here for 3 nights. Had a great stay. The park was very full as there was a car show in Pigeon Forge. We had a great time and will stay there again when visiting the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were able to check in after hours. Permanent residents take up most of the 50 amp sites. We found one after hunting around the campground. This site is located in the middle of a resort area that is loaded with attractions. The road is heavily trafficked and you are in the city. The back of the site abuts the Pigeon River but access is restricted by a large burn. There is still heavy construction being done to the roadway. Access in and out of the campground is not convenient but easy enough to navigate. I'd might use this for any overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I would rate the campground a 7, but our site 65 and experience a 4. When we are outside it is not at all quite and peaceful! While sitting out by our camp fire the air conditioner unit at the bath house is running and it is loud! At 2:00 PM everyday, the high band is preparing for their Friday night show featuring Elvis tunes...they are practicing "Ain't nothing but a hound dog" as I type this review. The campground is clean with paved roads and pad. Our site is a good size, but in addition to the noise there is a paved walkway through our site to the bathhouse. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Clean, quiet campground out of the busy area of the Parkway, yet close enough. Would recommend not taking a site next to the road if you like to sleep late as morning traffic is busy, otherwise very peaceful and quiet. Price reflects Passport America, which they accepted for an entire week. Verizon cell and internet connection worked well here. Level gravel sites. The ducks walking around the park were pretty cute. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects Campground USA and Good Sam. Blacktop roads. Lots of room in a pull through for our 40 footer. Staying here about 5 days, have stayed before. No organized activities, but we were taking a couple of grandchildren to DollyWood and could not ask for a better location. Less than a mile from all the action, but very peaceful. This is a great place to stay to see Pigeon Forge. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We didn't have a good experience at all this time. As I have mentioned before, you have to really watch your charges to make sure that you are charged correctly. We learned while talking to another camper that they do not get charged for their 50 amp trailer because they use 30 amp at a 50 amp site, while she has always charged us extra when having to stay in a 50 amp site when we only have a 30 amp travel trailer and only use 30 amp. One night while walking we met a nice gentleman with his granddaughter so we all were talking in the road and the owner pulls in with her Mustang, gets out and comes up to all of us to say that we need to move on because she promised the guy staying in the trailer next to her office that it would be very quiet. We said we would move on but felt like we were treated rudely because if anything made any noise it would be her loud muffler on her sports car when we were all just having a quiet conversation. So, we moved to the other side of the park to finish our conversation that night. We have stayed here many times but never when school was in. The band and sports practices were going on across the creek at the school and was extremely noisy. The Internet was not working at all during this trip and has always worked fine before. The last day we were there we called the campgrounds from Dollywood to see if they had our spot available one more night and he said they did so we stayed an extra night because we wanted to go to Dollywood one more day since we have season passes. So the next morning I put a check for the extra day in their box as they were not open yet. They not only cashed that check, but a week after we returned I noticed they took that same amount out of our checking account with the check card number I gave them when we booked our stay, but didn't use to pay with. I called them to tell them that they had done that and the man made excuses, not an apology it was more like we were the bad guy here. He tried saying that we stayed another day and I said NO, the extra day that we stayed I paid for with a check, which you had already cashed a few days before you charged our card. Not only did they fraudulently charge us, if I didn't pay attention I may not have realized it and they would have an extra day pay. And, they are keeping the numbers to your credit cards, which is against merchant rules. I don't like anyone having my credit/check card numbers, so that they can run when they feel like it. He said that he could just keep it on our account instead of refunding us our money, but we don't ever plan on staying here again and told him to credit it back. And we got it back in a few days! The first time we ever stayed here was the best time we have had at this park, as you notice in my previous reviews, then down hill from there. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is our second time staying here. We stayed on site 53 which was next to the pool. Had problem with the WiFi and was told that they are adding a transmitter on the office. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We will most likely camp here again next year. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a Passport park that gives you your money's worth. Easy access and level. Sites are a little snug for a big rig. We also had to change sites to get satellite. Wi-Fi is excellent. Park is close to everything. This is our second stay here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites are close. Pool is small. Overall campground is clean and kid friendly. The roads are wide so you can easily maneuver your camper into the tight sites. Close to Dollywood and all of the other attractions in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Found this last year and came back. That should say a lot. It's just far enough off the parkway to get out of the noise and close enough to get to things when you need them. Very pretty park. It looks tight at first but the roads are wide which make maneuvering very easy. Good Wi-Fi, cable and even has one of the trolleys that comes to the front gate. The sites are close, but I have never noticed people being on top of each other. Definitely recommend this one to all sizes of rigs. They also honor passport. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed here before & really like this park because it is so close to everything & is a good clean park. With that said, though, we had a few things that we were not happy campers about! Upon arrival the first time we stayed, I was told that since we use Camp Club USA we must pay for the stay with either cash or check; this time she said they have changed, and we can now use our credit card. That was better for me, but I remember her making that point last time we were here. They really should tell you that policy on the phone when you put down your deposit, using a credit card! So we paid for the stay from May 28th through June 1st. We paid full price because it was the weekend & holiday plus the extra for our 15 yr old son, extra for a creekside site, & extra for 50 amp even though we didn't use 50 amp. That is the only site they had available. We got Good Sam discount & then the last few nights we were able to receive our Camp Club USA discount. We had a nice stay, & we always enjoy the paved road to take walks throughout the day with our doggy, & our son loves to ride his scooter. There is plenty of areas for you to walk your dog to let them go potty; of course you need to pick up after them. They have plenty of trash cans around to make it easy on you. We decided to stay one extra night & had asked them if we could. The park pretty much was cleared out after the weekend so it wasn't any problem. I went to the office to pay for the extra night which should have been what it was the night before. The owner told the lady there that she thought her computer had given us the Good Sam & the Camp Club USA together so now it will not cost the same & will be higher. I didn't have the paperwork with me at that time to compare and since I do know how to add I thought something was off. Once we got back to the campsite I added up the fees for the site, and she had overcharged us $5, but I didn't make a big deal out of it. It just didn't set right with us, though, that she would do that & went out of her way to override the charges. At the same time I was in there paying she was having to refund another camper for overcharging them for their whole stay again blaming it on the computer. The computer was correct, though! It just wasn't good customer service to be like that with a regular camper; even if the computer was incorrect she should have honored the pricing. No big deal though as we really love the park. We just have learned that we have to really look at the charges. This park has a trolley that comes through regularly for the people that need that service, and it has a laundromat, restrooms, etc. We don't use the facilities, but they all seem clean from what we see as we walk by. This is a great park as it is so close to everything. We enjoy going to Dollywood since we have season passes & love that Kroger is just down the road. We look forward to staying here again in July! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a wonderful campground. The staff is extremely pleasant and helpful. The restrooms and showers were always clean and very comfortable. The campsites are very tight, but every RV park in the area is tight. There are quite a few trees as obstacles that can cause a problem for large rigs, but there are many sites that accommodate them nicely. There is limited space to park tow vehicles, which causes a problem if you have two vehicles or people visiting. There are ducks that like to visit the campsites and really enjoy being fed bread. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a really nice campground, although the sites were close together and the trees need to be kept in check. We were glad of the shade though! Helpful staff, level sites, and good price with Escapees discount. Lots to do in area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Price was CampclubUSA price plus an extra $2 per night for a pull-thru. The site #111 worked well for our big rig. A tree on the left will be a problem in a few years if not kept trimmed. Garbage can is positioned for every two/three sites. Many brochures for the local attractions were available. Certainly convenient to the Smoky Mountains National Park (no entrance fee). Very congested area with construction on main parkway road and it's not even high tourist season yet. It seemed like there were hundreds of CG's to choose from. This is a good one. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staying here for a week. Price is $22 because of Escapee's discount. Sites close together and might have a problem backing in a 42 or 45 foot motorhome. They have a few pull thrus. Water, electric and sewer are all good. Staff very friendly. Would stay here again if visiting Dollywood or the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Exceptionally clean park. Laundry facility was clean and easy to use. The staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgable. The trolley stop at the campground entrance is very convenient, the trolley drivers were friendly and helpful. This is a busy, congested town, we recommend taking advantage of the trolley service, it is easier to use than other places we have visited. For fifty cents it is well worth it! We highly recommend this park. If we are lucky enough to return to this beautiful area, we would definitely stay at this park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed here for a short Spring break vacation. (Friday - Tuesday). Quiet park. No playground if you have younger kids, but I did not need one. Nice paved roads. Pool not opened yet, but small. Close to the areas main strip. Very convenient. Had a nice time there. Manager very friendly. Reasonably priced with Good Sam membership. Some shady areas more than the campground next to it. Will stay again when we go back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The owners are very helpful and easy to work with. The cable TV had a long list of channels. The Wi-Fi was fast most of the time. We will being going back there next October. The trolley has a stop inside the CG. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here in the peak fall color season, so the area was packed. This campground is clean and quiet. The sites are small, which seems to be the norm for the area. The location is very convenient to most attractions, and the trolley comes through. The Wi-Fi was good, as well as the cable. We had two days of rain during our week here, and since the drainage isn't very good, there were lots of muddy places. We saw the staff adding gravel to one site where the coach door opened onto mud. Some sites are short, but the staff knows their campground well and will ask questions about your unit before you are assigned a site. There isn't much dog-walking space, unless you're parked on the edge of the creek, but there's a steep hill down from most of those sites to the creek. Of course, we pick up after our dogs, but you still hate to have your dog do his business on someone's campsite! The bathhouse was really clean. The laundry looked nice, but we didn't use it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I guess this could be a 9 1/2 with the Wi-Fi being sometimes slow, however those things don't mean that much to us. This park is very clean, quiet and reasonably priced. We have already made our reservations for next year. This park can be a bit tight, but manageable. The manager is very helpful and friendly, there is a trolley stop on the premises and it's handy to all the attractions. I would definitely recommend this park and it's a passport park (one of the better ones). We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A nice Park. The sites are a little tight for a large rig, but we made it. Hosts were willing to give us at least one day of Passport although they don't usually do so in July. Park is close to all the activity as well as having a trolley that comes by. This would certainly be our base when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a nice campground for the money. Spaces were a bit tight to maneuver into with a 34ft 5er but we were able to get in okay. Enjoyed the pool and the location of the CG in relation to area attractions. Staff was not real friendly but did no interact with them after check-in. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice park close to the action of Pigeon Forge, but out of all the noise and lights. The parking pad was level gravel and next to it was a cement patio with a picnic table. We found the site a little too tight. Our picnic table had a great view of the neighbor’s sewer. Lots of ducks and duckling roam the park. The restrooms and showers are newer looking and clean. The laundry room has AC which was a nice plus! Free wifi was available; however even though we were within two spots of the office we got a stronger signal from the neighboring campground and used theirs. The Pigeon Forge trolley stops at the campground regularly. We found the staff helpful and nice. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Relatively quiet campground in a not-so-quiet, bustling town. Campground is only about 10-15 minutes from Dollywood and Dolly's Stampede. We didn't get the Passport America rate--guess they sold all of those? Campsites aren't too large. Fortunately, we paid extra to park on creek so we had a deeper lot than most. Oh, yes, those ducks and ducklings are adorable! People in office are VERY nice and gave us names of several RV mechanics. Plenty of trash cans around, and they are emptied every day. Yes, we would go back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is awesome ! Very friendly staff. Family owned and I agree with the comment below that it seems like they take pride in keeping this park up ! I don't know what the last person (who gave a not so good review) was expecting. There is no bathroom in the same all around gated pool , but they are less then 200 ft away !!! Bathhouses are extremely nice and looks like they were re-tiled recently! Wi-Fi was ok on some days and great on others, but we talked with one of the owners and they said a modem went out and it was replaced the next day . Wi-Fi great after that. Close to all the main attractions but far away from all the noise at night too.We will definitelhy stay here again and will recommend to all ! Would have given it a 10,but the pool wasn't heated, but not an issue at all. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a very nice neat and clean park. The site are a little tight but usable. There are only five pull-through sites and they are fairly short. You are charged extra for a pull through and extra for 50 amp service. Since all pull through sites have 50 amp service, you will have to pay for it if you need it or not. The free WiFi worked great, the free cable TV provided close to 100 channels. It is far enough away from the busy roads to be reasonably quiet at night. We used the Passport America 50% discount rate for our stay. The park has a dog walk area along the creek but you have to walk through an occupied site to use it, which I do not like to do. Many sites have plenty of shade and with the provided cable service it is not a concern if your satellite antenna is blocked. There are numerous trash barrels throughout the park. This is a fine park with a friendly staff. It is right near everything that you may want to see in and around the Smokey Mountain National Park. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Passport America rate. Has picnic tables, small trees, and cable TV. Wi-Fi was a bit slow; air card was faster. Small swimming pool was not heated. No bathroom by the pool. Laundry room dryers did not work, but office refunded money. Dump hose had to carry water up a grade. Our site backed on a regularly used road. We used ear plugs. Sites are close together. Lots of ducks, but more in the future: we counted 20 babies. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our 2nd time to stay here. The park is absolutely great. The bath house is very clean, and the laundry was also great. This is family operated, and you can tell they take pride; no paper or cigarette butts on the grounds. The Wi-Fi was free unlimited use.The pool was not open yet but they were getting it opened. We would stay again next time we're in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great RV park. Sites are a good size with shade trees. The pool is very clean. It is easy to pull into site. There are picnic tables and fire rings on each site. Thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day stay and will definitely stay here again when we are in this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park should be a model for all parks to follow. First of all they accepted PA discount all week. Talked to other campers and they used another discount which was accepted. I look at private parks completely different than state or county or Corps Of Engineers because usually you are subject to a completely different environment to make ends meet. This park had no long term tenants. The bathrooms appeared clean. The laundry seemed clean. Wi-fi was great, staff very helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice RV park. Most of the sites are shaded. There are some pull thru sites. The back in sites were roomy enough to not be a problem. Sites were graveled with a concrete patio and picnic table. Sites along the creek had a nice grassy area leading down to the creek. Check in was fast. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. There is a pool, camp store and a Pavilion. The rest rooms and showers were extremely clean. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed there two nights. The CG was nice. It's basic with nothing fancy. But it was clean and quiet. All roads are paved. Sites are gravel with a concrete slab and picnic table. Nice area to walk dogs along creek. Decent shade trees. 50 amp sites are limited but since it was winter and we didn't need both a/c's that wasn't a problem. Low price due to Passport America discount. I gave it a 9 only because they advertise Wi-Fi but when you log on you find out that you only get two free log ins. Either I overlooked that or they failed to tell me. There is a Pigeon Forge bus that comes to CG but it takes 45 minutes to get to bus station. Recommend driving to bus station then getting on trolley. Of course we did this in the winter. There may not be enough parking in the summer to do that. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here for several years for New Years. Each year we come we find the owners to be very friendly and the campground to be very clean. We used Passport America and will keep coming back for years to come. This campground is close to everything and yet far enough to be quiet at night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice park & convenient to anything around. Plenty of grocery stores, gas stations & shopping. We always enjoy going to the Black Bear Dinner Show & Dollywood so it was nice not having to drive a long way there. We stayed on stream side for 10 days & love the ducks (approx. 40) that are quacking, love being fed & swimming in the stream. The park is pet friendly with a lot of room to carry your dog on a walk- of course you should clean up after your doggy. The only negative we found is the parking. We stayed in one that does not have enough room for a larger vehicle to park so thankfully we have a Land Rover that could be parked sideways. There are quite a few other spots that we would like to stay in next time that has enough room for parking. I don't know why everyone says that this park doesn't have room enough for their trailers because we didn't have a problem there. Ours is a 30' travel trailer & we fit fine. We really enjoyed our stay here because of the convenience & how nice the park is. The only other negative, I guess, is the owners are not really personable, but that is fine as long as they are not mean & they weren't. You never hear from them really so as long as you follow the rules of the park you will be left alone your entire stay. We will definitely stay here again. You can't beat the price ($18 - $30 with discount clubs). During the holidays we got the 10% discount for being a member of the Good Sam Club & other times we got 1/2 off because of being in the Camp Club USA travel club. We didn't use the bath house but we heard from others that it is very clean. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Passable size sites with cordial office staff. The grounds are well taken care of. There is a huge cable line up. The pool is small for the number of sites. A good as a base for local attractions. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The spaces were tight but really was not that bad. Staff was really helpful and nice, especially when we were trying to find a space to fit our trailer. Spaces were level and the concrete pad was nice, a little small but at least we had one. Pool is on the small side, but was good. Very convenient to everything Pigeon Forge has to offer, it's not far off of the main drag. Campground very quiet and family oriented and I would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Passport America. Nice clean park, but very tight sights. I could reach out my window and touch the neighbors awning! Some shade. Our site #10 was a back in and the front to rear was so slanted that I had to dig out the ground to get the rear stabilizers down. Took about a 1-1/2 hrs to set up. Sewer was WAY at the back. I used 40 ft. of hose! Small concrete patio, gravel site. Quiet and I felt secure. Staff was nice. Water pressure was OK at 35 psi and volume and taste we just OK. With all that said if I was in the area again I would probably stay again. The ducks were a neat sight. Nice compared to other parks in Pigeon Forge. A real nice park is in Gatlinburg...Twin Creeks RV Resort, but expensive. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
From the moment we called to schedule our reservation early that morning, every single person we spoke with or worked with was excellent and super friendly. The campgroup was clean, easy to find, easy to park and was beautiful. We had a creekside spot and it was wonderful! The ducks walked by several times and the kids loved it. We would highly recommend this campground to everyone. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place is everything an RV park should be. It's also well-located to the attractions of the area, including Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mtn National Park. Owner's are an extremely friendly young couple who recognize what it takes to make RVers happy: Great wifi, a clean park, friendly check-in, knowledge of the area AND they take Passport America. Be sure to ask at the front desk for the new restaurant discount program, which includes some of the area's most popular restaurants, not just places that are starving for business. Congrats to Creekside for getting my first 10 out of roughly 20 reviews. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not a large campground but they offer all the necessities. The trolley service has a stop at the campground which makes getting around easy. The owners are nice and helpful. Have reservations for next October already. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pros: Very attractive campground. Sites include concrete area. Cable and WiFi work well. Clean laundry. Trolley takes you to the main trolley system. Cons: Most sites are permanent residences. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground for being in the Pigeon Forge area was a nice surprise. The sites were wide for being located in the city, but were still close at the same time. This campground does have a trolley that runs every 45-60 minutes that brings you to the main trolley terminal. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites very narrow but adequate. Full hookups. Nice family of ducks. Pool small but adequate and clean. On trolley route to Pigeon Forge. Would stay here again. WIFI worked well. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a very nice park, with a great price. We paid about $27 with GS discount. Like all the parks in the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area, the sites were very close together, but from what we saw from the other parks that we drove through, this park has as much room as any of them and more than most of them. This park is also located off the main road, so it was not as crowded getting in and out, and traffic noise was non-existent. It was however centrally located, so getting to all the attractions was easy and convenient. The staff at this park was friendly, and the one and only issue we had (a breaker kept tripping), they had replaced on a Sunday afternoon very shortly after I reported it. The sites had level, gravel RV pads, and a great concrete patio with picnic table. The utilities were in good shape (especially after the breaker was replaced) and were well positioned on the site. There was standard cable TV with lots of choices. There was plenty of grass between the sites and a nice amount of shade. I had no problems backing in my 33’ fifth wheel. The restrooms were clean, air conditioned, and well appointed. The pool was very small but adequate to accommodate my kids. It was open until 10 or so during our stay in mid July. We highly recommend this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The good is, the campground is clean and relatively quiet. Restrooms and showers were clean. Staff friendly. We stayed on the water view, which are the only sites I would consider. The bad is, that the sites are tight. Took me 20 minutes to back in due to vehicles parked on road, tree on side of site, and small sites. They are back ins and are straight back, not angled. If the vehicles had not bee parked there it may not have been so bad, but it would have been tight just the same. There is a small pool on site that was very clean, but it is crowded on a hot day. May stay here again, but will explore other campgrounds in Gatlinburg, which is 10 minutes away. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed in one of the premium sites along the creek. This gives you more space behind your campsite since another site is not behind you. This is a typical commercial campground with relative small sites; pads are made from crushed rock; and are pretty level. There are trees and grass at each site. The park is quiet. I also talked with several campers who had tried other parks in the area and they said that this was the quietest park in the area. The trolley runs through the park to pickup campers, but it only runs to the central station. You then have to catch another trolley and pay again to go to any other attraction in Pigeon Forge. I would have rated this park higher if the sites had been larger. We would probably stay here again if we wanted to visit Pigeon Forge. If we wanted to visit the National Park only we would probably camp somewhere else possibly in Towsend. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice rv park, plenty shade...decent size sites. A member of Passport America...PA rates Sunday thru Thursday...Good Sam for the other days. We would stay here again and recommend it to friends and family We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We've used several campgrounds in the Pigeon Forge area. Creekside is the pick of the lot. The bathroom/shower upgrades were a significant improvement. Land is expensive in this area, so don't expect lots of space. If you need a big site and want distance between you and your neighbor, you'll have to stay far out of town. If you want a clean, convenient location as a base to visit the area, Creekside will do nicely. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here and absolutely loved this park. The employees were very helpful. The bathrooms were beyond great.I cannot believe that someone would give this park a 2. It may not be perfect for every RV, but it was perfect for ours. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We came here via passport America. We found the woman working the check in desk to be very friendly and fully accommodating. Sites were limited and we ended up taking a site that backed up to the road. I could not get not the motor home level even after 3 try's (auto levelers), After deciding to spent the night in the downhill position I went out to hook up. I could not even come close to hook up to the sewer with my 20 foot hose. Electric and water were within reasonable reach. Then after giving up on Sewer I went inside to set up the dish. Satellite is "iffy" on the side of the street. Also I was unable to put the awning out due to a tree that was close to the coach. We left a day early on a 3 night stay because we were unhappy. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground. Sites are gravel with grass on the side and concrete patio area with bench. The sites are very tight. We stayed in 110 which is a pull through with enough room. Shore power and water was not in the middle of the site so I had to pull a little farther through the site to connect water. Sewer is in the back so you may need a long sewer hose. There is no dog run. Can't get to the creek banks without walking through a campsite. Restrooms and washer room are nice an clean. Attendant was nice but busy. Church service was held on Sunday in an out door pavilion by a young lady from Smokey Mountain Ministries. There is also a cowboy church that is in the area also for church services. Info is in the laundry room. Overall this is not a bad place to stay. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice clean park. Owners were friendly and looked like they took real good care of the park. Will be coming back to stay again. Close to all the action but with easy assess to get in and out but still far enough to get out of all the Pigeon Forge traffic. Able to also get a good satellite connection. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice mid-sized park. The management is very friendly, the facilities are clean, the park grounds are well-maintained, and it's located right near everything you'd need to have but far enough away (about 15 min) from the hustle and bustle of Gatlinburg. The trolley even runs through and will pick you up at your site! We camped here in a Motorhome.
I would give this campground a 10 , except for the one lady who worked the office was rude(when we did talk to her) and the time that we stayed there the store was never open and no one would ever answer the phone when we tried to call. The campground itself is very nice, sites are clean, trash is picked up often, bath houses are big and clean. Seems like a nice place to stay , if you could get the staff to do their job . We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an excellent campground. It is just right off the main parkway. The sites are a little tight, but everything is paved and very level. The bath house and showers were VERY clean. The staff was helpful and the store had supplies needed for the laundry facility and other supplies needed for camping. We camped creekside, and those sites are very pretty facing the creek. Will stay here again! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
All I can say is for this being our first time here. I can't say enough about this campground it really is located about a mile off the main street (441S). The only thing to watch out for is when you turn onto Henderson Springs Road to go to Creekside Campground, you'll first see another campground but immediately after is Creekside We almost went right past the drive. The roads are all paved and the pool is clean, there is a basketball hoop by the office and the bathroom/shower houses are very clean and air conditioned. Also the wife said the laundry room was clean. You can catch the trolley in the campground. I would recommend taking the trolley at least if you plan on going to Gatlinburg, as it was convenient and we didn't have to look for parking. There is plenty of shade and full hookups. Cable channels seemed to have a good selection. The owners were nice and the had firewood, ice and limited rv supplies available. They do accept good sam's. The campground is close to gas & stores. We had a great stay and we will camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We love this campground. Owners are friendly. Pool is clean. Restrooms are clean. We always stay at this campground when in Pigeon Forge. Pet friendly. Quiet. Cable TV is great. Sites are large and clean. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice Park! Small and somewhat off the beaten path but still very convenient to everything. Staff was very friendly and even though had older camper parked next to 1/2 million dollar motor homes, everyone was exceptionally nice. Pool was not open due to cold weather but appeared to be very tidy and laundry facilities were spotless. First night we were there, it snowed 1-2 inches and found that campground owners had came by and taken off water hoses to prevent damage. I was very impressed with the care they provided. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The sites are a little close together but many RV parks in the Pigeon Forge have sites even closer. There is a scenic little creek that runs behind some of the sites. Security is excellent. Owner/managers are doing a fine job. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff was GREAT. The roads are now paved and nice. The trolly passes all the way through the park. We stayed on the stream side and the gravel sight sloped down towards the stream and also there is not much space between sites. You will get to know your neighbor very well. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very well managed, family-owned park. Spotless laundry, etc... and nicely maintained landscaping. Quiet,yet convenient to all attractions. Would be a 10 except we were in the pull thru section where there is no shade and it got very hot. Other sites have nice shade. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here the week of Christmas, 2004 Staff was very friendly. The bathrooms were very clean. The trolley came through the campground about every 45 minutes. Some of the fire pits are too close to the camper, especially with slideouts. We were able to use a fire pit on another site since it was not crowded this time of the year. We would camp there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 8 / 10 ]
They were paving the roads the week after we left. Well maintained park with level sites. Some sites are small and some are a bit difficult to back into because of small tree locations. Nice location out of main traffic of Pigeon Forge. Sites are fairly deep but not real wide although enough room for slideouts and awnings. We will return if in area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very friendly staff. Extremely clean park. Bathroom/shower/laundry areas all very clean.
Many campers with pets but we never saw dog droppings anywhere. Garbage was picked up every morning - never saw any paper or trash laying on the ground.
Gravel road did make the area dusty. Trolly comes right through the park every 45 minutes. You can stand at your site and they will stop to pick you up and bring you back until 9PM. Small trees separate each site which have cement pad, table and full hookups 30/50 amps and cable TV. Sites are a little close together but we were able to open all our slides and put awning out. Looked as if some people had set up camp for the season but everything was neat and tidy. We will definitely return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 10 / 10 ]
Stayed here for the month of July. Very friendly staff and close to all attractions.
Restrooms were very clean and big. Sites are close and with the gravel road it can get very dusty,but I would recommend this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Nice place to stay when visiting the Smokies. Owners were very friendly and accommodating. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Located approximatley 3/4 of a mile off of the main strip in Pigeon Forge TN. Campground is mostly open and airy with small trees in between most sights. Not enough to provide any shade yet but also does not complicate positioning your RV. Main road is an elongated oval made of gravel and the sights are gravel. Each site has a concrete pad that you can position RV next to and put awning out to cover picnic table and have a nice sitting area. Campground is clean with trash cans at most sites or strategically placed so you don't have to walk far to get to one. Bathhouse is kept in good clean condition. Haven't used their showers but they look clean. They are a Good Sam's campground. Stream on one side of campground. Not a rushing mountain stream but still gives you a nice little extra something to look at. Stayed there several times in last 3 years wtih a 31 ft. fiver. We camped here in a camper.
Not a bad place, however we can confirm previous comments: cat urine smell, in both office and outside; identified seven different cats sneaking about the sites; blew a air conditioner (on a 50-A connection) - starting cap and thermal reset replaced at our next stop in MD. No accessible breakers on power stands. My bad in this regard - I'll be installing two pairs of meters - one on each leg, both inside and outside locations, so I can monitor voltage when connecting and applying A/C load. Management needs to go around to every site with a 3000 watt load-bank and check each leg on every pole for correct voltage - there are high-resistance connections somewhere. Location was OK - sites were reasonably level, at least within 2-2x6's stacked, cable selection good, trees could use trimming (up and back), vehicles up on blocks, couple of long-term trailers could use "bulldozing." Was quiet; reasonably well drained (rained two days). Office staff "OK"...but not much chance of a "visit breaking out" with them. Chainsaw sculptors, out front, do GREAT work! Had a good time at Dixie Stampede, regardless. Don't think we'll stay here again, unless website acknowledges problems and corrective actions. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Older campground with grass pads and dirt roads. Some full-timers, but mostly tourist. Most sites had some shade. Pool area looked very clean and inviting. Rate is PA. Would stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
DANGER, DANGER, DANGER: This campground nearly set our camper on fire. The electric system is flat out dangerous. The power pedestals breakers are all bypassed in the campground and the real breakers are in a locked breaker box. You will be plugging into a hot pedestal at all times and if you need to trip the breaker in an emergency, you CAN'T. We suffered a power surge that pegged my volt meter in the camper and fried some electronics. It would have done more damage, but I flew out of the camper and ripped the plug out of camper (because I had no breakers to trip). We moved from a 50amp outlet to a 30amp and that keep tripping with only an A/C unit, fan and TV on. We had to wait for someone to come unlock the breakers and reset it. The camper next to me was having electric problems also as they came over to see if we were having problems or it was just them. The sites are horribly unlevel and we needed to use the full length of our legs to get unhooked. The laundry room is infested with wasps and I was swatting them away from my wife as she did the laundry. If for some reason you chose to stay, be cautious of low hanging limbs. The sites: you will be very close and back to back with the camper behind you. The roads are often blocked as there is no parking and people block the roads with their tow vehicles. We should have avoided this place when booking, as the person on the phone was dumb as dirt. She ended up giving us a 30ft site for our 38ft camper. Worst campground we've stayed at in over 40 states we've visited. You couldn't pay me to camp here ever again. Avoid this place at all costs. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We visit this park 3 times a year. We have stayed everywhere in the forge and this is your best bet for peace and space. Lovely mountain backdrop that is not covered in cabins. Bathrooms and pool were clean. Wi-Fi worked well. Staff is very friendly. Our last stay we fried our plug on our cord at 2 AM due to me not fixing it before we left home. We found the owner's son who was the so helpful and polite. He was able to repair our cord. He had an extra 30 amp plug at no cost, just the promise to keep coming back, and we always will! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was my first camping experience and I found the park nice, shady, and convenient. The only downfall I found was with the office area; it stunk like cat urine and the hostess didn't know much at all about trailers. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
First of all the rate reflects PA for the entire time we were there (13 days). We would rate this park higher, but we had problem with neighbors noise until the wee hours of the morning and there is no contact number or security number to address this. Park is nice, though, and your stay decision should not be based on our experience. We have stayed at other parks in the area and this one is better in that sites are larger and have cable TV. Wi-Fi was a problem for our entire stay, but we have smart phone so could work around it. They supposedly "updated" the internet system while we were there but it was no better after the "update". Facilities are a little older but clean and no problems. All in all a nice place to stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is not fancy, but it had spacious lots and nice shade trees. Compared to some of the parking lot campgrounds nearby, we'd stay here every day of the week. The restrooms are old but clean and the laundry is spacious. Our lot was reasonably level. My biggest complaint was that the tire rim fire ring at our site was small and would not fit a normal sized fire log completely inside. We would stay here again. If I did so I would try to get closer to the playing field to give the kids even more space to run around. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is an older campground but we liked it. The people were helpful and friendly. The pool area is older but clean and refreshing. The laundry area was clean and everything worked. They have bath and shower facilities, which are older, but looked clean. We did not use them. Our site was shaded, which was really was nice since the weather was WARM, and close to the pool and laundry area. The best part about this place is it's close to everything but not in the middle of things, it's quiet at night and inexpensive compared to it's competition. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Had read previous reviews about unlevel lots and no gravel, but I guess they've really worked hard to correct those items--plenty of gravel--even had a pile over to the side to add to a site if needed. The site was almost level when we pulled in. Spaces are plenty big, and nice and wide even though you are butt to butt in some cases but that's ok. We priced some other parks in the area and there are about 4 or 5 within 2 miles of this one and one in particular is very nice but twice the price with no discounts. This one gives most of the discounts. One of the parks we considered must be new; looks ok but all the trees are young and short so there's no shade. About l/2 of this park appears to be long term people and the front part is for transients. The chain saw carver is still here, but he's 10 lots down(we are in spot 11 and he's opposite lot 1) and we've never heard any noise. There's lots of brochures on things to do. The trolley is a real deal at 50 cents per person per trip and there's about 6 routes or you can buy an all day pass for $2 and go to Dollywood, into Pigeon Forge, over to Gatlinburg. Better-- than driving and looking for a parking spot for a big dolly and in Gatlinburg parking is $5 to $8 per day. We took in a show with oldies from the 50's and up; no dinner but sometimes the quality is poor and the price is high--this one is 2 hours of good entertainment ranging from $10 to $24--Oldies American Theater. We are here for a week and would definitely stay here again. Only drawback is the trash dumpsters--3 OF THEM need emptying and they'll all at the very back of the park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Lots and lots of tent sites here right on the creek. The tent sites are very level. The staff was friendly and helpful. We never heard the chainsaw artist next door. The bathhouse was clean. Passport America is not accepted for tent campers. They do have a policy: no pets on the tent sites which we thought was strange. The policy should be: no leaving pets alone at your tent site. We have a small dog and we got away with it. We camped here in a Tent.
This campground has the most unlevel sites I have ever seen. Owners need to invest in a little gravel and smooth out sites. The help at this campground is not good. Sites are back to back, so if you are the 2nd to arrive, you may not have room for the trailer. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Eagle's Nest Campground was very noisy, a chainsaw going off @ 7 AM and the traffic on the nearby highway was all night long. We paid through Friday night but left Friday morning for some well needed rest at a much quieter campground. The people who worked there were very nice. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It was not our best RV experience. There is nice staff, but out of level sites. There was a chain saw art fabricator on the site, so if you like lots of chain saw noise this is the place for you. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice campground, Camp Club USA and Passport America. We stayed here 4 week days. 50amp, water, sewer, cable tv and Wi-Fi are good. At first I was not sure if I would like this campground or the site I stayed in. The site was #1. The cable is jury rigged at this site and the ones next to it. Many of the sites were shared back to back but each having it's own services. Most sites are very long. I had to use blocks to level side to side but had to drop the front almost to the ground to level. This makes it difficult to raise the front when getting ready to leave. I came to really like site 1. It has a small fence around the door side and gave us a separate area to sit and our dog to lay. I would come here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stopped in to stay for 2 days and ended up staying 3 weeks. Love this park. They let you use passport for as long as you want, park is clean and very shaded. Will definitely return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Passport America rate 19.00. Small older park. Pool is small, also lots of tent sites. Small sites in the area they put us also we was put in with perments no one around. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. For the rate of 19.00 in July its a great deal I guess. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Although I was promised a level site months before I arrived I found that my site sloped down so that I could not get the coach level. The gravel interior roads were full of holes. We left within 45 minutes of arrival. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Too many monthly or annual people here. Kind of run down. Management is not very friendly. There are too many nice campgrounds in the area to waste your time staying at this one. We won't go back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here Thanksgiving '05. We loved it. Located just out of the rush. Staff was very friendly. Plenty of room, not stacked in too tight. We will be back here to camp again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice park. Clean, well laid out, shaded. We were there the first night of the 2012 season, and all appeared new and ready. Suspect it could get a little crowded when full, but still more spacious than many other places we have been. Wi-Fi worked well. Nicest restroom/shower facilities we have seen in a long time. Office staff was knowledgable, friendly and helpful. The only drawback is that you have to be careful how you approach the park from the north. Turn in before the last Pigeon Forge traffic light and then go through another campground that appears to have built on both sides of a city street. We will look forward to staying here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We picked this park because of the good reviews we'd read, but it does have some drawbacks worth mentioning. It's easy enough to find and get into, but getting out was always a problem. It's located right at the edge of Pigeon Forge and the traffic pouring into town made getting out on the road a challenge. Also, there was no left turn available so heading toward Gatlinburg meant making a U-turn, not an east thing to do with a camper. We stayed near the front of the park and the traffic noise was pretty bad there. The back of the park had no nice views though so it was a tradeoff. The WI-FI was pretty much unreliable at our camper, but walking closer to the bath house made it much better. The park staff was very friendly and helpful and that made up for some of the drawbacks. If we stay there again we'll definitely go to the back of the park away from the traffic noise. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A really nice park above the highway and noise. You actually drive through another large RV park to get there. Very clean, quiet, clean restrooms and showers. Great pool. Plenty of room for slide and awning with picnic tables provided. Trolley stop is right out front. We would definitely stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This small campground is above another larger campground which is at the south end of the main strip in Pigeon Forge. Because we stayed during the week during the off season, there were only a few other campers in the park. It was immaculately maintained and the bathrooms were always clean. There were 3 spacious shower rooms with doors and step-in showers with curtains. They always looked as if they had just been cleaned. The pool was small (5 ft. deep), but very clean. We had little interaction with the staff, but they were very friendly. The campground is very close to everything (walking distance to Krispy Kreme *fresh, hot doughnuts at 6 p.m.!* and Cracker Barrel), yet quiet with a secluded feel. The paved circle around which all the RV's are parked is level and smooth- perfect for skating, biking, etc. The spaces are not huge, but comfortable. There is a picnic table and fire ring at each site, but no grill. We just picked up a cooking grate at Walmart, which is about 10-15 minutes away depending on traffic, and it worked great. It is about 10 minutes up the mountain to the foot of the Smoky Mountains if you by-pass Gatlinburg. If you turn right at the visitor center, then right again and pass the visitor center, you will find a "quiet walkway" on the left with just enough room to park 1 or 2 vehicles. This level path leads to a stream with a narrow bridge that looks like a fallen tree not very far from the road. It is so peaceful and a great place to let the kids wade. Be aware that most hiking paths in the Smokies are not pet friendly, but there were no signs on this path prohibiting pets. We had a wonderful time and would definitely highly recommend Foothills. We camped in spot #3 to accommodate our 32 ft. camper and it was great, but I think I would try to get spot #17 if we go again because it is backed by trees, has more shade and is closer to the excellent bath house and pool. Did I mention is was clean? We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This small RV park is tucked away behind another facility on Husky Street in Pigeon Forge. You have to look for the office sign at the end of the street PAST the other RV park. The proprietor here was very friendly and gracious, helping us with suggestions for where to go, eat, and do in the area. They also have discounts coupons on many of the shows and attractions. Our site was perfectly level and we also had a nice deck overlooking the area for our personal use. It was extremely quiet and peaceful in the evenings. We will be returning again next year, and this time with other family members who will rent our their nearby cabins. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground next door was recommended but after seeing its proximity to the road and a public road through the middle of it, we tried Foothills instead. This is a small campground at the edge of town. Check-in was nice and we were told which sites were open and allowed to choose the one we liked best. Took site 4: it was nice and close to the pool and restrooms. The toilet/shower area had A/C, was spotless, and played nice background music. The rate shown reflects 2 extra kids. Also, we didn't see the inside but other guests were raving about the rental cabins. This is a small, very well maintained campground close to it all, and we would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great little park! Friendly staff and clean restrooms. Nice, paved sites with shade trees. We would definitely stay here again. Quiet, yet still accessible to all Pigeon Forge attractions. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park on the Great Smoky side of the town. Very little interaction with the office, but none was really needed. Our space was a little short, but all facilities were adequate and a very good value. This camp is near the main road but pretty quiet and isolated from traffic noise. Do not camp in this town (unintentionally) during any of their car shows. There are at least 7 this year, and we waited in traffic for an hour coming back from Great Smoky hiking on Saturday, a traffic jam of 2-3 miles outside of town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a wonderful little secret located in Pigeon Forge. This place was awesome and located out of the way, but short walk down the hill to the trolly, which took you anywhere in Pigeon Forge, but also to the Gatlinburg Welcome Center. There you can jump to another trolly for your Gatlinburg journey. Everything was very clean, staff was extremely nice. A great experience. We found a new place to stay from now on. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great park, small but immaculate. Definitely a 10. $29 for full hook-ups, 95 station cable TV, and free Wi-Fi. They are also the closest campground to Smokey Mt. National Park. Also very close to Dollywood and all the attractions in Pigeon Forge. The staff is super friendly. Restrooms and pool are first rate. Everything is newly paved, level and shaded. One of the nicest places I have stayed. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our first time there. This is the best small campground that we have ever been to. Our site (#1) was fantastic, being on the corner, we had no neighbors on one side. Sites are a little small, but they are very nice, all hook-ups including cable and a cement slab. Bathrooms and showers were impeccable. We did not give a '10' because sites are small and fire ring of the next side was too close to the unit and towing vehicle (we had to close all windows when neighbor made a small fire). Very close to main street, you can even walk. Very quiet and relaxing campground. We will come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is by far my favorite campground! They have immaculate bathrooms and showers. The laundry facilities are very clean also. It is quiet and very family friendly. Nice pool and clean well taken care of grounds. I would recommend this to anyone! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Foothills is a really great place. We camped in their #1 cabin and our daughter and her family camped in the #2 cabin. The grounds are very well kept and the bathhouse extremely clean. Owners are helpful and friendly and a wealth of information on the area. Foothills is very conveniently located and has a trolley stop in the front of the campground. The cabins are well kept and well furnished. Beds are very comfortable. We will definitely stay there again. We spent one week there and can hardly wait to go back. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
This rate is for 30 amp. Extra charge for 50 amp. One block from main street. Quiet and clean. Fire rings. Sites 26 & 27 have decks with a view. We were in a 38'MH and we had to park the car in the next lot. Paved and clean. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed her for 6 nights. We visited Smokey Mountains and other attractions while here. Location is fine. Sites are pull through but narrow and not much room between sites. Empty the first three nights we were here and then busier during the weekend. Staff is not friendly and would NOT stay here again due to that. We have many places to choose from, this will not be one of them next time. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Used the park as a hub for other activities in Gatlinburg and GSMNP. Was not there during daylight hours, just used it for sleeping. It's a nice place, roads are somewhat narrow, but we stayed near the entrance so it was not an issue. It was quiet and peaceful. Worked well for us - no reason not to stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Typicsl of parks in urban or busy tourist areas this park has somewhat narrow roadways and minimal space between sites. We had a pull-through with a tree tight against the left side of the site. In order for our living room slide to be clear of the tree, we needed to park towards the front of the site, which was too far for our 40 ft. of sewer hose to reach the sewer inlet. Since we were staying just a few days, we were able to back up to the sewer and dump our tanks before we left. The park is well-maintained, sites reasonably level, although backing into some of the spaces looked like it would be a challenge. The restrooms and showers are modern and spotless. The park is about one mile off the main drag of Pigeon Forge, which makes it convenient to the tourist attractions, but far enough away to be quiet. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very clean, staff friendly, easy access. Don't let the small sites scare you, there is plenty of room. We had a 40' motorhome, motorcycle and truck and the site size was not a problem. This is the quietest park I have every stayed in. I would rate this park as excellent. Nice experience. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I don't know what those folks are talking about in the other reviews about not big rig friendly. I saw many big rigs come and go with ease. Sites are very level. Wi-Fi is great at site and cable with many channels. We stayed from Mon. thru Fri. Quiet at night, staff very friendly and helpful. Swimming pool was excellent, very clean. Sites are close but not too close. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
We're 45 feet: and were mighty surprised when we arrived, as we read here, and were told on the phone that this park was Big Rig friendly. Hardly. We couldn't get into our assigned spot, which was a pull through. We got lucky that there was ONE larger space available. Getting to the space was tricky as the interior road in the park is very, very narrow. Had there been RVs parked in the spots across from ours, we'd not have been able to back in. All of the bigger rigs were in back-in spots. The pull-through sites are all tight, and not diagonal entry. Gravel spots are OK, but for the price we expected paved pads. Staff was friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The sites were very small for us as listed as Big Rig Sites. Ours was very narrow and short. The park was clean and well run and seemed secure, but I am not sure I would call the site they assigned us a "big rig" site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park, well maintained. Sites are close but not really a problem. Bathroom and showers were clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the ducks that strolled through the grounds. Trolley stop is located at the entrance to the campground. We were here for a car show and the staff was very helpful with moving and parking the trailer we used to transport our antique car. We will definitely camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I gave this a 5 cause I was really 50/50 with it. I must agree with the other reviews that discussed the creek access. The owners definitely stretch the whole "creek front" thing, I promise you this. The only really pretty creek front was at the south end and that was really only for small travel trailers and tenters (The creek picture on the website is of this area, don't be fooled). On our site you could barely even see the creek cause of weeds grown up with trees hanging over in it and it was down a steep hill. This creek was no where near as pretty as the one that flows through Townsend by any means. I didn't have any issues with the people at check-in like others said (maybe they do read this stuff). My major complaint and I mean major was with the design of the electric boxes. Instead of being at the back of your RV like normal, the electric box was near the front of the gravel pad. I wasn't paying attention, and my super slide on that side of my RV almost hit it as I was putting it out. I had to take up my levelers and try and pull forward just enough to barely miss the box. I couldn't go backwards cause I would have hit the trees. The nose of my RV was almost in the road but, that was all I could do. I must have backed up and went forward no kidding for 30 minutes trying to miss the box and get close enough to the patio, it was that bad. Nothing else was available as my favorite place in Townsend was full due to the Labor Day holiday. There was also really no room between our RV and our neighbors, although they were super friendly and that was definitely a plus. The place is really clean and the pool was great, I swam twice in it and met some other nice people. The elder, tattoos, leather-skinned ,bikini clad woman, I could have done with out though, ha ha, but other than that it was really good. Would I stay here again? Yeah possibly, but, I am seriously sold on how pretty Townsend is and want to go back there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground. We stayed for two weeks and couldn't say enough good things about it. The grounds were well maintained as well as the bathrooms and showers were very clean. Management was a little snooty, but they didn't let anything improper go on for very long without putting a stop to it. I will definitely return again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice campground. Sites are not spacious, but we found ours to be very level. We where in the very back of the campground with a field behind us. Family campground. Pool very nice. Playground for the kids. Laundry clean. Showers and bathhouse clean and water hot. There was also a stream that runs along one side of the campground that you could walk along. Mother and baby ducks walked down the road everyday from the stream. This campground is off the tourist road and very quiet but crowded. There are trolley stops nearby, but I would not pick this campground if that is what you are planning to use. That was what are original plan was but it was better to drive than wait for it to come by the campground. Near Dollywood and about 40 minutes depending on traffic from Smoky National Park and many other attractions in the area. We camped here 4 nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Had it not been for the fact that we had a site on the "stream", we would have turned around and left upon arrival. When we called to book our sites, we were told that you can go tubing in the "stream", but as we soon found out, the water was barely moving. To get to the restrooms you had to walk across a neighbors site because there were no pathways and there was no parking area either for the restrooms or the laundry room. The sites are very small and we camped in a pop up. The staff was purely business, not overly friendly. The one good thing that I will say is that the restrooms were the best I have ever seen in a campground and the lady that maintains them should be commended! The next time we are in the Pigeon Forge area, we will stay elsewhere. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Biggest issue was the attitude of the management which was noted by several guests. Site for a 40 foot MH was a 90 degree turn in with untrimmed trees right on the corner and patio at the other corner which damaged my roof. The site was crushed rock and small concrete patio at the back of the site. We will never return. This is my worst rating ever given a campground, due to the management. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our second stay in this campground. Grounds are very clean and well maintained. The park has paved roads and gravel sites with a concrete patio. Sites are small but large enough for the larger RV's. We will probably use this campground again when in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very clean park that seems to be one of the newer parks in the area. Close to all attractions in Pigeon Forge. The cable on our site was not working when we arrived but was fixed early the next morning. One negative is that the sites are very narrow. Positives include concrete patio, clean gravel to park on and neetly maintained grassy areas. We would stay here again when in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I cannot say enough good things about this RV park. The restrooms are the cleanest I have ever seen and the people who run the park are very nice. The park is so quiet and peaceful and yet you are less than five minutes from Pigeon Forge. Quiet hours are strictly enforced and the park is patrolled by security on a regular basis. The only reason I did not give this park a 10 is because the sites are extremely close together and it can be difficult to pull your RV into the sites. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Upon arrival we were told to go to site 138. Had to pull back to office when this site was still occupied. Told to go to site 148. Both of these are pull through sites. Had to move a picnic table and literally jack-knife the trailer to get in. Still wouldn't have made it except the people across the road from us were not home which gave us a little extra turning room. Definitely not a big rig friendly campground although several were here. Sites are so close together that when you let your slides out they almost touch your neighbors awning. Overall a clean campground with friendly staff but we will look elsewhere next time. We pull a 38 foot 5th wheel with a long bed crew cab dually. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
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. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I must take exception to one review of this park. It does have a swimming pool and a playground. The sites are about average in size. This is a fairly new campground and is very well kept up. The creek sites are not really on the creek but down a pretty steep hill but there is a trail down to the creek. The trolly does come by the campground and it is not that far to walk thru the campground to the road where the trolly stops. We were there for Thanksgiving 2004 and the rate was $22 per night. It is about one mile from "the strip" in Pigeon Forge and is a quiet campground. If you want a fire they will bring you a fire ring if one is not already on your site. We will be going back again this Thanksgiving. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

We did not find it to be as advertised with creekside sites, shade etc. Sites were cramped, but park is very clean and was full of bus RV's. We never saw anyone walking about etc..., but a/c running in the bus rv's. Our spot was on concrete and there was no shade, so we had to run air conditioner 24/7. Park is about 2-3 miles off main drag and you had to walk to highway to catch the trolleys. We noticed that the trolleys went inside of other campgrounds on the route, and trolley driver told us that campground owners pay the trolleys to come into the campgrounds. This one didn't, so be prepared for a lot of walking. I don't recall seeing a pool or arcade or anything for the kids and they barely had enough room to set up a badminton net and play a little. Did not seem to be family oriented, but a true Class A big bus RV place to park and stay inside. We would not stay there again as it was very boring! This is not what camping out means to us! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
The cleanest campground I have ever visited. Bathrooms were spotless. Only disappointment was with the description of our site not matching what we actually got. We asked for and received what they called a "Creekside" site. Creek turned out to be down an steep embankment that was covered with trees. Could not see or get to creek from camper. We could walk down a small trail to the other end of the campground where the creek was accessible. But I had in my mind that I was going to be right on it and that was very disappointing. I would still recommend
the "Creekside" sites because they are the only sites with shade. Not much in the way of trees through the rest of the grounds. Very quiet and peaceful. And
again, the cleanest campground I have ever visited. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

Campground is very close to major attractions and shopping areas, such as Dollywood and
the factory outlets. Park staff is very friendly, and park is very clean. The site I was assigned was not level, thus the 9 rating; but the majority of the sites appeared to be level. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 9 / 10 ]
Overall a nice park. Sites are a little close,but close to all attractions.Camped in August. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 8 / 10 ]
Overall a very nice campground. The sites are gravel with a concrete patio. The grounds are well kept and the staff is friendly. The reason we did not give it a higher rating is the lack of shade and the close proximity to your neighbors. The other reason for a lower rating is the trolley stop. Although there is a stop at the entrance to the park, there is no shade or seat to make the wait more comfortable. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We enjoyed our stay at this campground. This was our firts time at a RV park in this area and we got lucky to have picked this one. Most sites were not shaded but if you get one along the outer rim you should find some good shade. Along the creek sites are shaded from about 3pm until sundown which was very nice. The staff was friendly in the office. One worker politely accused my dog of making a mess he had to clean up. I guess he thought all dogs and owners are the same. This was the only bad thing that happened. The bath houses and laundry are very clean. The park grounds are very well kept. The sites are spaced very well. Plenty of room you put your awning all the way out, unlike other parks in this area that we checked out. We will definitely be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 9 / 10 ]
Very clean , very quiet, very friendly , easy access to all attractions . Only negative, needs more shade. They have trees planted so one day there will be shade. Would recommend this campground very highly. Also sites are very level. We camped here in a camper.

Newest park in area, very clean and friendly, on trolley route. We camped here in a camper.
The rate we paid was based on our RPI Membership. The park is a couple of miles from the town of Pigeon Forge along a windy road with Mill Creek running along side. We had a spacious back-in site with a concrete pad for tables & chairs. They have a clubhouse and a pool. It was a nice setting and a great base for touring Smokey Mountain National Park. To obtain a 10 rating it needed picnic tables and a little more landscaping between sites although some of the sites up the hill from the Office/Rec Room may have been a little nicer. Our site was close to the entrance to the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
All the graveled sites were back-in. Ours was not level either front tp back or side to side. There was only one bathhouse for the whole campground. To get to the park, you have to travel on a narrow street, and you really have to watch for the turn onto the street between two "landmarks". We camped in a motorhome. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice friendly staff. Very helpful and informative, Sites were a little close, but most are. A lot of campers looked like full timers that lived there most of the time. The park was clean with some shady spots. There was a non denomination church service and Tuesday game night. The trolley stops by there every 15 minutes to take you to town or Gatlinburg. We would stay there again, especially for the price of being close to Pigeon Forge. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Shady, and off the main road. Shuttle to town. Convenient to attractions and National Park. Our site was a bit tight, but okay. The shuttle driving by was a little annoying. Laundry was inexpensive, but only 3 out of the 6 dryers were working. 50amp has additional charge, but 30 was okay at this time of year. Many regulars here, and full time residents. Sites are close, but not cramped. Road into park is narrow, but park itself is roomy enough for navigating through. Just FYI, they charge you if you check in early! We camped here in a Motorhome.
I am not so sure what the other reviewers were looking for but we thought this was a very nice place. It was quiet with nice sites. We had no trouble with our awning not being able to open. We also didn't see any sites where we would not be able to open our awning. There are some sites on a hill but the sites themselves were level. It was tucked away a short distance off the main road and that was very nice. The bathrooms were clean and the pool was nice and clean. All of the folks were nice. This was a timeshare campground so a lot of regulars were there. Our site was one of the ones between the country road and the entrance and we had no problem with our three small boys wandering off. So overall we really liked it and would definitely visit here again. They also have a brand new really nice playground! We thought the place was kept up nicely. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Came under Coast to Coast. Assigned OK campsite, but treated as interloper when I complained and asked to change. Was offered 2 terrible sites as alternates. Kept the assigned spot. Restroom & shower only OK. Nice pool. Very small site. Could not get reception on Dish Network but I was at the bottom of the hill between the entrance drive and the county road - glad I didn't have small children. Water was muddy off and on all week. Campfires only allowed in raised fire pits. Mostly quiet & pleasant. Trolley pickup and drop off every 15 minutes is good option. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were looking to stay, but with a drive-thru in our tow vehicle without the TT, we decided this was not the place for us. The campground is old and not had a lot of upkeep done to it. There are many campers that seemed to have been parked there for decades with no upkeep. We just kept driving. Don't think I would ever stay there, unless it was a have to case. They may be the friendliest people, but the place just looked derelict. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Depending on which site you get, forget putting your awning out since the sites are terraced and there are trees. The interior roads are paved but steep. There are also cottages to rent. The trolley comes through the park to pick you up, and takes you to the trolley station where you can either tour Pigeon Forge or go into Dollywood. The laundry is old but clean. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good interior roads. Staff very friendly we paid coast-to-coast plus extra for cable and there is a charge for electric but still was a good price . The trolley stops here We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our site was cut into a slope, and too narrow to open the awning, but this seems to be the exception. Campfires are only allowed in above ground fire "pits" -- bring your own. Far enough off the main drag to be relatively quiet, and actually had openings over Thanksgiving weekend, though overpriced, in my opinion. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice, quiet park just two minutes off the main parkway. The shuttle stops at the park so you can explore Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg shops and restaurants. Bath house and pool are clean and well maintained. Sites are mostly on the hill, and kind of close together, but full hook-up. We camped as Coast-to-Coast members, and this was quite a good value. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice campground and very convenient to Patriot Park, which is the hub for the trolley. The park does have some big rig spots but most are rather tight but still okay. I have stayed here numerous times but have started choosing other campgrounds strictly for the price difference. I personally feel the prices at this campground are excessive but it is a nice campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is clean and well maintained. The bathrooms and showers were clean. It was very quiet there. The only problem I had was the site we were given (90). The camper on our awning side's slide outs were into our site. One of the sites behind us had the coach's rear end at our awning. The sites were staggered. When they ran the engine, the exhaust from the coach blew over me as I sat under my awning. I think we just had a bad spot. We would stay again, but in a different campsite. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Had all the basics needed: level, clean bathrooms, Wi-Fi, and full hook-ups. The amenities were: rec room complete with weights, had Dollywood trolley connections, and grounds were well maintained. We stayed at the premium sites of the campground. Will stay there again on every return visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy access to trolley and area tourist sites. Right by patriot park which has lots of activities. Good playground, pool and grill. Fairly level gravel site with concrete patio. Paved sites available as premium. Narrow sites (like most tourist areas) and the Wi-Fi would work on computer, but not iPhone or iPad. Have stayed here several times. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pros: close to Dollywood,Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg attractions, shaded sites, strong WIFI, digital cable TV, nice pool, park with paved walking trail next door. Cons: No escort to sites, standard pull-thru sites very tight, some impossible to connect your tow vehicle before departing, these sites are 3-4 feet from your neighbor, very close camping, trees at end of sites make some turns impossible, deluxe pull-thru sites available at premium rate. I don't consider this a big rig friendly park. Because they advertize pull-thru sites that don't work. If you are towing a trailer and can't disconnect you may have a serious problem exiting some sites. Use Caution We camped here in a Motorhome.
I would very much like to give this KOA a 10 but alas, like the last 2 KOAs we've been in, their Wi-Fi is pretty crummy. We had site #154, which was less than 20 feet from an access point, and the connectivity/service was slow and sporadic. Other than that, we found this KOA to be really nice. Our site was fairly level and had adequate buffer between us and the neighbors. The landscaping and grounds were very well maintained. The pool area looked clean and well kept. The office staff were very friendly. The interior roads were well taken care of and only a little snug in spots when navigating. Easy access to all the local touristy stuff. Our trip to this area was only made better because of our good experience with this campground (except the Wi-Fi). Cable TV worked well. We will most definitely camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A very nice campground. We had a spot (#28) on the end with the stream behind us. Like the whole park, the restrooms were very clean, the store is nice. The campground is easy to get to from the N by taking the Teaster Rd (at CVS) which avoid the Parkway traffic. They are located next to the main trolley station which seemed like it would be convenient, but we found the buses, if you are accustomed to city public transportation, to be less than optimal. The office couldn't give the travel times between stops and the bus drivers wouldn't even tell us where the nearest stop was located (at Tanger Five Oaks). However, if you were just shopping up and down the Parkway the Trolley may suite your needs. If you are going to Dollywood, this park is a short 5 minute drive or ride to Dollywood. The park does offer Wi-Fi, although it was low signal and wouldn't connect on Friday and Saturday which may be due to the park being full (or nearly full). It worked fine on Thursday. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Close to Dollywood and most Pigeon Forge activities. We had a gravel pull through site. Sites are close together but quiet. Bath house was clean and well maintained. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
If you have a big rig, chose the premium sites. The office staff, while friendly, does not know their park well. Tried to park a 34 foot fifth wheel in a pull through with a tree on one side blocking access and a sewer inlet on the other making pulling in impossible. Park clean and maintained. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Location, location, location. That's really all this CG has going for it. My reservations were made over a month in advance. When I arrived they had assigned me to a site that would suit a unit with no slides. I refused the site and they moved me to another which could accommodate a 31' TT. I have been a KOA VIP member for a number of years and have always made my reservations online. This CG shows it's premium sites in there on-line description but these are very deceiving. The area we were put in was very unkempt. We arrived on a Friday and none of the lawns had been cut. 5 days later the grass continues to grow. Today we went to the pool and found the water to be extremely cloudy. On the bright side, the staff is very friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 8 / 10 ]
Very clean,bigger rigs beware of tight sites unless you get a premium or patio site. Other campers walk through back-in sites near bathrooms. Friendly, helpful on-site owners & staff. Great location to walk to restaurants, half-mile walking track adjacent to park, nearby greenway along river for jogging & biking. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is a great location! Our pull-through site was roomy enough. There are clean restrooms/showers, and very friendly staff. The pool was nice although it was closed for the season. The store was well stocked with necessities as well as souvenirs. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The rate is for a 30 amp pull through. We have stayed here many times before and always liked it here. The only "complaints" are sites are very close and shower and toilet share the same rooms. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were most disappointed with this campground. Since we didn’t have reservations, we took what was available – premium site (concrete pad, patio furniture, cable TV, fire pit). All back-in premium sites abut bath house. In front of our site were rented cabins which do not have bathrooms. Consequently, people would constantly cut right through our site all day and night. We asked the office to put up signs telling people to walk around and not cut through sites. Their response was that it was our responsibility to tell them to walk around and not to cut through sites. If you’re paying premium rates, it’s the campground’s responsibility, not the camper’s. In addition, nobody guides you to your site. Many campers kept going in circles trying to locate their site. We would never stay here again. You don’t get the bang for the buck. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The draw for this campground is its location. However, there were several issues during our stay there and also a few changes that could be made to improve the campground. The wifi did not work the three nights we were there. If you were fortunate enough to get online, you were immediately disconnected. Most of the time you could not get past the log in page. Two calls were made to the office. They were unconcerned. The second time we called we were advised that "maybe" they would upgrade the internet when they were closed for the season. For some people, wifi is not an issue. Due to work and college classes, wifi is a must for us. Also, while the hot tub was hot, there were no bubbles for the duration of our stay. The bathhouse closest to us was dirty and smelled. The cable tv worked well. It would also help if they knew/considered the limitations of certain sites (i.e. trees) and took that into consideration when booking sites. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We just returned from a week long vacation at the KOA Pigeon Forge and we loved it. It's close to the main strip, Dollywood, Dixie Stampede and The Old Mill. There is a city park that borders the campground and you can walk across the park from The Old Mill area. The campground has a playground that was a big hit with my 6 year old and 4 year old. They also offered a day camp weekday mornings. The pool is small, but average size for the area. The sights were on the small side, but for the campgrounds in the area they were on the larger side. We drove through four campgrounds in the area before stopping at the KOA. The sites are grassy as opposed to mostly gravel at the other area campgrounds. Staff was friendly and helpful. Dollywood is only one stop away on the trolley and KOA was offering a special rate on tickets while we were there that was not available online. Lastly, the street that the KOA is on connects with Teaster which is the road that parallels the main street in Pigeon Forge, so you can go all the way to the other end of the strip without traffic and with a lot less lights and then come out right where you needed to be. Easy! FYI, the rate was $47 S-Th, but raised to $57 for F-Sat that's for a full hook-up, back-in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The sites in this park are too close together. It was difficult for us to park our 40 footer. When we put our slides out, our neighbor had to come watch so we did not touch his coach. The dump station is in a bad place: really it is useless. Yes, this campground was clean and everything else you expect from a KOA, but the squeezing us in and dealing with the congested neighborhood that it is in: makes it awful. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We had a wonderful experience here at the Pigeon Forge KOA over spring break this year and can't wait to go back. The campground is spacious and very well maintained. The staff are friendly. The scenery is gorgeous. You are right next to all of the attractions in Pigeon Forge, yet the setting is quiet and serene (we were surprised after pulling in from the busy main drag). There is a river that separates the campground from the town proper. The campground is right next to a park, shops, and the very cheap (25 cents I believe) shuttle that will take you anywhere in town, down to Gatlinburg, or over to Dollywood. Dollywood tickets were sold at the campground at a great discount. The bathrooms were large and clean. We stayed in a cabin, which was heated and very comfortable. The RV sites looked lovely. The playground was nice and there were lots of kids riding around happily on bikes around the beautiful lanes of the campground. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the Pigeon Forge KOA. Enjoy your stay! We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
We got stuck in traffic during Columbus Day weekend and it was very late. This campground was the only one that had a few spots left. I paid the price posted at the night registration. Cheapest was $40 for no hookups. A pull-through was $80. I had no choice but to stay. They have everyone jammed in very tight with no room between sites. There was a smelly dumpster right across the road from us, and about a dozen other sites. When I went up the next morning they tried tell me there were special rates for fall and tried to charge me more than the posted price which I refused. I will complain to the Better Business Bureau later. Tax is 11.75 percent in Pigeon Forge. The dump station was located just behind the office on the way to the campground: as you pulled into the campground it was next to the pet and children's play areas. It was an open grate with toilet paper hanging all over the grate. You pull up over the grate and dump on top of it. I wonder why the health department lets them do that. Especially with the children's play area close to it. WiFi is misleading, It is available but you have to register with a third party , separate from the campground, after you log on with their user name and password. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park location is great, walking distance to the main street of Pigeon Forge. The camp is clean and nice. The price is very high. The sites long but very narrow, you are almost on your neighbor site and its hard to open the slide out. I was on a pull throw site that was very long, so I could park my car and my motorcycles on it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Well maintained and clean park. Average size sites for area. Somewhat tight maneuvering through campground and into sites. In a good location in the middle of Pigeon Forge. Not as many amenities as some other KOAs. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very friendly staff. Nice camp store. Lots were a bit small, screaming kids next door was not relaxing but not the park's fault. Has bus pick-up at entrance for Dollywood, quick 3-5 minute drive, bus also goes to shopping area. Would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My family took-off on a spontaneous weekend trip. Before we left I called to make the reservation, and the lady seemed like I was bothering her. She never asked if I wanted a paved spot so I assumed we were getting one because I wanted a full hook-up site. When we got there I had to go back out to get both tags numbers...it would've been nice to know they needed that information beforehand. The sites are narrow, and we had to hold our breath going into it. The campground was clean with a nice playground and basketball court for kids as well as a quiet location right on the river to watch the mallards. When we left we were fortunate that our neighbors two sites down were nice enough to move their truck so we could pull out. (That's right--two sites down!) We again held our breath trying to get out of there because the turns were tight. Very nice if you want a quick off-season trip, but I wouldn't go during peak season as the road getting in and out is extremely busy. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The campground is nice, clean well taken care of. The sites are EXTREMELY close and hard to manuver around. This is KOA was setup so that campers are very close to each other. While the sites are pull-thru, you CANNOT pull-thru the $50 sites without unhooking. It is impossible to make the turns and weave your way through two other sites. The higher end sites ($80/night) are a traditional pull-thru that dont require an un-hook. We stayed here one-night as we were passing through the area. Having to un-hook to park, is what caused me to deduct 1 rating from the score. Dense sites took 2 points off. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very rude office staff, acted like it really annoyed them to check you in, or give you a refund. We spent one night there because they refused to give us a refund of $50.00, because we had made a reservation. But when we called we asked about the refund policy and was told if we didn't like the site with in a hour we would get a refund of our money. The site, 13, they put us on was very unlevel. Front step of MH was about 2 feet off the ground and still could not get it level. They moved us to site 10 that was right on the road to Dollywood. Site 12 is also very unlevel. The MH on that site, the front step was way up in the air. The hot tub was nice but closes at 7:30 so we didn't get to stay in long. We had booked for 4 days but the next morning at 10:30, we went in the office to get a refund for the balance of 3 days. Check out is 11:00, and they said we had to be off site before they could refund our money. We were ready to go so we had to back out of the site cause there was no way to turn the MH around from site 10. Then go back into the office to get our money.The Wifi service was very bad kept cutting off and very low signal.There are parks just as nice, if not nicer, a lot cheaper in the area. I will never go back to this campground, and the dog walk is a joke, if you have a large dog he will fill up the fenced in area they have for a dog walk. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is nicely located in town and next to a local park which makes for a good walk or bike ride. The park is also located next to the town's tram depot which is very convenient. We were put into a water & electric only site which was mainly dominated by tent campers, but no one seemed to mind. The pool was nice but is right next to a very busy road which seemed to be a distraction. The camp store was not well stocked and staff seemed preoccupied. We would probably stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Busy campground behind the Pigeon Forge "strip". Sites facing each other so no privacy on your (concrete) porch. The few trees made It look like a town Instead of a campground. Maybe a great place to visit If you want to go to Dollywood but no "back to nature" experience. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Overall this campground is clean, but small. Some sites are located right next to the main road to Dollywood. This is not so great if you have little children. When I checked in I was asking some questions about the campground to the young woman at the desk. She seemed very annoyed and told me everything I need to know is in the flyer she gave me. Just what I wanted to hear after a 10 hour drive. I would have scored it a little higher if the woman in the office cared about the campers and their questions. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Overall, this was a good park. The roads are paved, as are a small number of the sites. It appears the back-in sites have a little more room than the pull through sites, because of the configuration of the pull through spots. The restrooms were a bit out of date, but they were clean. We had a very good WiFi signal even back at the rear of the park. It is about a quarter mile walk to the main Trolley terminal at Patriot Park. From there you can take the trolley system to any point in the town. You can also pick up the trolley at the campground entrance, but we found it easier to just walk to the main terminal. Cable TV feed was good with at least 60 channels. Most sites appear to have a patio, fire ring, picnic table, and a small grill. We didn't use the pool, but it looked clean. There is also a pool-side jacuzzi. It did rain a bit one night. There was no standing water to speak of the next day. There didn't appear to be any "activities" going on at the park, but that is to be expected as most campers are here to do the tourist things in town. We would use this park again based on our experience. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice enough, but nothing spectacular for the price. The sites are a little close, but that could be said for just about all parks in this area. Nice pool and playground for the kids. Close to Dollywood, the Old Mill and Patriot Park. Our site was level, but not all of the sites are so you might want to ask if you don't have auto levelers. No real complaints, but there are parks just as good or better for less money. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed in May after our family beach trip was canceled. Great place! Staff friendly and very helpful. Sites fairly wide, well maintained, and clean. Game room, playground, hot tub, and heated pool in spring made it a very enjoyable stay. Paved roads enabled the little one to ride his bike safely. Only one bad item our wifi did not work for most of the week. Very quiet until the weekend. Expect very high traffic, some noise and every site filled. Close to everything. Great walking trails and Patriot Park next door. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The site was small and very hard to maneuver in getting our 38.5' fifth wheel into the site. Each site faces the neighboring site, so when you step out in the morning your greeted by your neighbor in a facing site. The water spigot for both our site and out neighboring site was "under" our slide. Between slides of our and the neighbors, it wasn't more than 1 foot. Concrete pull through and back in sites were larger but left vacant and never offered at the office. Lady in the office didn't seem to care either way if we liked it or not. I took pictures of the "close" quarters if anyone is interested. Very dissatisfied with Pigeon Forge / Gatlinburg KOA! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is perfect. It is spotless, and maintainence is always working. The pool was heated, and open it was wonderful. The entire park is paved, the sites are paved, with concrete patios, and patio furniture, plus a fire ring and a fireplace, its quiet, incredible. Staff was very helpful, and friendly. Would highly recommend this campground, and it is close to everything. Awesome! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fairly standard fare for a KOA. Perhaps a bit nicer than we expected, due to the 'tourist' flavor of Pigeon Forge. We expected small sites, but they were reasonably large. However, staff seemed a bit too businesslike, and the "pets welcome" seemed like they were welcome simply to fulfill the KOA requirement, rather than being truly welcome. Our site, was quite nice, reasonably large as stated above, and overlooked the park next door. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We frequently visit the Pigeon Forge KOA and have had nothing but good experiences every time that we visit. The staff is friendly and eager to assist us with special requests. The grounds and facilities are very well maintained. The restrooms and showers are the cleanest that we have seen of all of the campgrounds we have visited. We will definitely continue to return to the Pigeon Forge KOA! The deluxe pull through sites are wonderful with added amenities such as a home like patio set of furniture, large concrete pads, chimneas, and a lamp post. It tends to be a little pricey but well worth the convenience and what you get for the money. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I thought the price was way too high. The sites were shady, clean, and nice. Pool was nice and well-kept, and it was in a great location. We would stay there again but want to try someplace new next time. A nice place but I still thought it was too high and we saw some campgrounds while we were there that were priced considerably less and just as nice. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We didn't have a problem with the park or the facilities, however, the office people were just plain rude and unresponsive. We arrived for a long weekend on a Thursday evening. Assigned a sight that was very wet and unlevel. They claimed to be full but had a number of sites that went unused all weekend and refused to let us move. Additionally, closed the store 30-40 minutes early each night. Even locked the door on me as I was walking up to buy ice one night 30 minutes before they were supposed to close. A letter and an additional e-mail to KOA went without a response from corporate or the park. The only KOA I'll stay at in the future is in Nashville where the people are great. Other than that, I'll dry camp. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice park, easy access to town and Dollywood. Level sites. But we thought expensive. Nice river next to the park (one reason for choosing this park) but health department sign said not to get in it due to bacteria problems. Stalls in the main bathhouse were too small. Bathroom was clean but the doors to the toilets open into the toilets making it difficult for any walking person to enter easily much less be able to help a handicapped person in. No ADA compliant bathrooms. The shower stalls weren't any better. For healthy 'normal' people who don't want to enjoy the river it's a nice park. One nice thing was that it is directly next to the town's Patriot Park which has a paved walking track around it. Bathrooms don't work for us though. We tried it twice, sorry, not again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Plenty of room on the sites. Well taken care of. Very clean restrooms. Very quite considering it is just off the Pigeon Forge tourist area. I would not hesitate to stay here again . In fact, most other places should learn from this one. Internet was very good. Site was pretty level and had barely adequate parking for my Honda Fit. There were sites for larger units, just make sure you check ahead. ONE MAJOR complaint. The two week reservation cancellation policy is absurd and we would not have stayed if there had any doubt. We made reservations two nights before arriving. Many campgrounds are taking this attitude and will, overall, lose our business. I traveled on the road for very many years and never had something like that except during special event times. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice and clean newer park. Great location. We planned to stay for a few days, but left after one night. We were in a premium site that was directly next to the bathhouse. I am a light sleeper and all night heard people coming and going to the bathhouse with the door continually slamming. The park was full, so we could not move to another site. They were apologetic and refunded the remaining nights of our stay. We would stay again as long as we were in the rows at the back end of the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Hands down, one of the nicest parks we've stayed in. It's fairly new (I was told 4 years old). Sites are concrete pads with patio, nice lighted hookup posts next to the site, everything within good reach. If you have a larger rig, I'd recommend one of the creekside sites as they are larger. There were quite a few 40+ rigs parked in the center loops, and some of them were nearly hanging out in the road. Those ARE pull-through sites but not as nice as the back-in creekside sites. There are also some large trees by the creek that provide some shade. Nice dog walk area. Cable TV worked great, and the WIFI connection was strong enough to stream Netflix. Very close to the strip, and there was a shuttle that stopped at the hotel right across the street if that's your thing. Pool is sort of a kiddie splash type pool, but they are owned by the large hotel across the street and patrons can use their indoor pool for free. We had a very enjoyable stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one of the cleanest and best manicured parks we've ever visited. The wide sites all have concrete pads and blacktop parking for tow vehicles. Just 1/4 from the ""strip" and most major attractions and shows. Staff incredible! We would definitely stay here again We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our third time staying at this park. The location is excellent, less than a mile from the Parkway and it's on the shuttle route. Bathrooms and showers are exceptionally clean and well kept. Sites are good-sized, paved, level, and well-landscaped. Haven't ever used the pool area, but it looks like fun for kids. The office staff is very helpful and efficient with check-in and out. Will definitely stay here every time we camp in the Smokies. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed here in April. It was a little cool but loved the park! Very friendly staff and very helpful. We didn't like our first site so I went back to the office and he said to just pick the one we wanted and let him know. We stayed close to the road and it was still very quiet. The park is very close to everything in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. We plan on returning to this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here during a cold spell, it was still a great trip, loved the park! Nice big concrete sites. Has got to be the largest sites I've ever had. Bathhouse was amazing. Never seen anything like it anywhere else. Even in 25 degree weather, we enjoyed this park. We will be back. Just maybe when it's a little warmer! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 9 / 10 ]
Such a Beautiful place to stay! Spacious concrete sites with fire pit/grills. Newer park with extremely clean laundry and restroom facilities. Just wish there was a fenced dog area. Would love to stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is absolutely a wonderful campground! We stayed here 6 nights and it was a pleasure from start to finish. The sites are a little tight, but I haven't seen a campground in this town that isn't that way. We have a 5 year old and an 11 year old and the pools across the street are great! The restrooms and showers are immaculate. We will definitely make this our permanent Pigeon Forge campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We loved this park. We camped here with 4 teenagers for access to the Pigeon Forge area. All level concrete pads. Great pool even though shallow. Showers and bathrooms were great, like a nice hotel. Shuttles all over the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean and well-maintained. Wi-fi worked well. Campground was quiet and a pleasant place to relax between activities in Pigeon Forge and Sevierville. The campground itself did not appear to have many activites for children or teenagers (other than the pool) but with the strip just over the hill and trolley stop across the street, it wasn't really needed. The only negative is that the park isn't shaded; however, you can get some partial shade if you get a spot by the creek. I plan on going back soon. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Perfectly level concrete sites. Back-in sites seem to be longer than pull-through sites. All 50 amp, full hook-up, level concrete pad sites. No cancellation fees if canceled outside a week, makes it easy to make reservations in advance. Alas the Wi-Fi is terrible, reason for 8 instead of 10. Wi-Fi needs to be fixed or changed, no excuses! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean facilities. Far enough off the strip to be quit, but not too far to get to everything, very close actually. We loved the fact they had camp fire rings, we love having a camp fire. Was a little loud on the holiday weekend, the quiet time hours weren't very observed by other campers. All in all we loved the campground and would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Very clean bathrooms and large private shower rooms. Park manager was extremely friendly and helpful. Level concrete pads with grass and shrubs separating sites. Price included use of pool, jacuzzi and lazy river at Mainstay Hotel across road. Price included Good Sam's discount. Would gladly stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Excellent campground. It was very clean. Love the fact you put your trash bag at the curb and they come pick it up. Only drawback to entire campground, is there are only 2 washers and dryers. This is a new campground and all pads are paved and level. Very nice. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great park and the cleanest bathrooms and grounds of any campground. Park was very neat and clean, check in smooth and friendly. Ysed all the facilities and the pool at motel and everything was great. Would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I can only think of one negative about this campground and it's not even the owners fault. The wireless internet can be patchy if someone else has a Wi-Fi hot spot. Other than that, this is the perfect park! The concrete pads are level, in great shape, and easily pulled into. These are some of the cleanest and most up to date facilities we've found. The showers, restrooms and laundry receive great attention and were always clean. Trash pickup each morning was very handy. Access to the main road can be hard to navigate, one suggestion is to take the back streets, or leave a little earlier as the parkway is always crowded. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is definitely the best campsite we stayed in but it is reflected in the price. It is nice and tidy and the showers are great (although very early in the morning it took a while for the hot water to come through). Unfortunately we arrived when it was dark and left very early in the morning so we didn't get to experience everything the campsite has to offer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here 2 years ago and it is even better now than our first trip. Friendly professional staff and everything is extra clean. In our opinion this is pretty close to a perfect RV park. Perfect location for attractions but back far enough from the main roads it is almost like being in the country. Indoor pool, cable was great, bathrooms/showers were very clean. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is perfect for big rigs. Like brand new. Clean, level, concrete pads. 50 amp full hookups at every site. Wi-Fi was spotty, so used cell phone to check email. The Pigeon Forge trolley comes to hotel, owned by the campground, right across the street, very convenient, only 50 cents per ride. The hotel serves breakfast in the morning. Reminds me of a Class A resort in terms of landscaping and perfectness of each campsite. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is excellent, with clean bathrooms, INDIVIDUAL showers with locking doors, a nice pool (odd splashing shallow pool), and access to the pool area at the hotel across the street. All hookups were the new type in a central location along your site. We had a site along the river, which seemed nice to us. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is still a new park but is very nice, we were on the stream which our lab loved. Splash pool has 3ft end air temp to cold for us but we did see kids in there. Everything worked well, nice landscape between sites, trees are still young. Pads on the bigger sites allow enough room for our 42 footer and our SUV. Tables and fire rings at each site. Use of heated pool and hot tub across street at hotel, very small two lane road to cross no problem. Great place off the beaten path in the busy side of the Smokes. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice newer park, paved streets, cement pads and patio with table. Great park for visiting all the attractions in the area. We were in Pigeon Forge for the Spring Grand Rod Run. The staff was friendly and helpful. Sites have ample space, small trees with very nice grass areas. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV park is very new and well-maintained. The sites were level with concrete pads. Our site backed up to the stream which was small but was still nice. Guests are allowed to use the indoor pool at the Mainstay Suites across the street which was very nice. Location is great, it is located at light #6 in Pigeon Forge and is off of the main road but is still close to everything. Wi-Fi worked without any issues, cable TV had around 60 channels and the sites were very clean and well groomed. The only thing that was lacking and I wish we had, was a playground for the kids. We will definitely stay here again! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is excellent park with all paved roads and cement sites. Everything is new and well maintained. The sites are spacious. I would have given it a 10 if not for the short pull throughs and the Wi-Fi. The pull throughs are some of the shortest I have seen. Most were occupied with smaller campers, but I did see some larger RV's parked in them. The larger 5th-wheels were parked in back-in sites near the creek which has longer sites (where we parked) and they are sufficient. The Wi-Fi was terrible, coming and going. Other than these negatives to us, this is a great place and we will use it again when in Pigeon Forge. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Clean, quiet, well maintained newer park. Wide sites are hard-surfaced and are level side to side with slight natural rise away from Creek. All services were good. Great site for exploring area. Trolley service across street provides a very economical means to visit area attractions thus avoiding driving in heavy traffic. Wi-Fi was strong. Stayed here 3 nights and will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a newer park with well kept grounds, paved roads and concrete sites with patio, table and fire ring. It is in an excellent location. The large negatives are only two washers and dryers and very poor internet connection (low strength and unreliable), which is a must to our camping. These problems should not exist in a park with higher rates. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A wonderful park, beautifully laid out and maintained with super friendly staff. Absolutely the largest, cleanest showers and rest rooms I've ever seen at an RV Park. I would recommend booking well in advance, the Fall season books up out to a year in advance. The stream side sites are well worth the extra rate. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed 4 nights at this RV Resort and loved every minute of it. Restrooms were extremely clean and heated too. All Resort personnel were very courteous and professional. The crew tending to the sites after a departure even cleaned out the fire pits, you had to look very hard to find even a cigarette butt on the grounds. We will be returning soon. We had a back in stream front site which tend to be a little larger than the pull throughs. I really like this place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice, new RV park in the center of Pigeon Forge just a couple of blocks off the parkway. Very convenient to Dollywood, Old Mill, and other area attractions. Back-in sites along stream are wide and long. Pull-through sites are somewhat shorter and closer together. Very level concrete parking pads and patio area with paved streets. Trees have been planted, but are not yet large enough to provide much shade. All facilities were very clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed in a spot by the creek so we could have a longer spot. This park was spotless. Each and every spot was level and meticulous. We had a few problems picking our dates and the staff could not have been more helpful. The pool was a little small but you had the opportunity to use the pool at the motel across the steet, so this was no big deal. All in all, this was a beautiful park and we will be visiting here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our first time to go camping. We were very lucky to find such a wonderful campground. We are planning to come back ASAP. Everything was perfect from the showers/restrooms to the campsite (level and concrete). Love this place! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice clean park at the edge of Pigeon Forge, with very level concrete pads. Very quiet. Sites are a little close together, and your neighbors fire ring may be right at the corner of your RV. Keep that in mind if you plan on having your windows open. You could easily get filled up with smoke. Also, if your neighbor gets careless you could end up getting scorched. A little scary. We paid the premium for a creekside site. Only worth it because the sites are longer back in sites. The stream is small, but made for a nice setting. Also, you have no neighbors to the rear. Staff was very friendly. There is no shade here, so the hot summer days may be a little uncomfortable. We would stay here again if our intention was not to spend a lot of time at the RV, as was the case for this trip. Otherwise, we would look for a little more shade and privacy. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great park, especially for the area. The park is pretty, well maintained, quite even though it is close to attractions. Friendly staff. Will stay here again when in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We've stayed at a number of parks in the area, and Pine Mountain is the best by far. The park is new, the sites large and level, the bathrooms/showers spotless, and the ambiance excellent. Additional bonuses include the availability of the indoor/outdoor pool at the new motel across the street and the fact that the area trolley (bus system) stops at the motel. The only suggestion for improvement is the laundry room. Only two washers and two dryers are available. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our fourth visit to this park since 2009. I reviewed this park previously and gave it a 10. However, this visit soured our feelings about this park. Everything posted by other members are true. Shower house is the cleanest I've seen, not much shade, flat level pads, close to town, etc. We really do love it here! This trip my sons bike was stolen by some local youths raiding bikes in various campgrounds. Several bikes were stolen at the KOA (across town) and dropped in this campground when they decided that they like my sons better. The office was closed and we informed the local police and the main desk at the Main Stay across the street. When the campground office opened we informed them as well. They were unaware of the incident and said that they had not been informed by the Main Stay that it had been reported and nothing was addressed. We have stayed in this campground with some friends since this happened. They obviously did not "remember" the incident, and told us that they had never "had any trouble with anything going missing", and "nothing had ever been stolen". The owner of this campground also owns the Main Stay across the street. I would like to urge him to encourage better communication between the two sites. The office staff is the finest you could ever hope for, but they are lacking in the truthfulness department. If you stay here, LOCK UP YOUR BELONGING! We will stay here again, but we will not be as trusting of others as we once were. Pack your locks and be prepared to use them. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our second time staying at this park, and it was as wonderful as the first. The sites are easy to get into and very well maintained. The bathrooms were clean and well stocked, and the private tiled showers were always clean and had ample hot water even though the park was crowded while we were there. Campers can use the indoor pool at the hotel directly across the street, and it is also well maintained and supplied pool towels at the front desk. The park itself has a great outdoor pool but it had not yet opened for the season. We used the wifi while there and found it to be reasonably fast with good reception from our site which was a good distance from the office. The laundry room is equipped with new coin operated washers and dryers that worked great and fast. There were no negatives about the park. Things to be aware of: the creek sites are a little more costly, and the creek is not all that impressive. The back in sites seem to have slightly larger parking pads/areas - not really in length but in width. However, all sites have room for anything from small trailers to big rigs and ample room for awnings. Each site has sewer hookup. The park is still relatively new, and there are no trees, but it is well landscaped in order to avoid the parking lot feel. It was warm while we were there, and there were tons of kids on bicycles all over the park so be careful driving. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were on our shake down cruise in our new rig. We picked Pine Mountain because it was new. We are glad we did. All the sites are cement pads and the streets are paved. We stayed in a stream side site and it accommodated our 38 footer easily. The resort is great for walking as it is very flat. It has no shade so if you want shady sites this would not be for you. It is off the main drag in Pigeon Forge so the noise is very little. This time of year the park is allowed to use the indoor pool and hot tub at the main stay suites across the street. The only negative about this park is the amount of animal waste all around the park. We only saw one other pet in the park and I do not believe that it was the culprit. It was just a nuance for us and our two pups. We will return when we go back to the area. The nightly rate included 50amp, Good Sam and Tax. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is really clean. It's only a little over a year old. All of the sites are paved with concrete patios. Two reasons I didn't give it a 10 are the sewer connection is in the very back of the site. You need a least 20' of hose to connect. The Wi-Fi connection was poor at best. I was all the way in the back of the campground. I only saw 2 transmitters for it in the middle of the campground. Other than that it was fine. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground is very nice with paved roads and sites. We camped in a motorhome backed up to the stream. Staff is very friendly. The rate was a Good Sam discount price, although extra is charged for 50 amp. There were two problems we encountered: 1) Even though there is a rule that all dogs must be leashed, we saw at least one or more large dogs unleashed every day of our stay. No one seemed to be monitoring this situation. 2) At times it was difficult getting on to the highway from Pine Mountain Road even though this was during the off-season time. The access road to Highway 441 is in the middle of Pigeon Forge. We have experienced the extremely heavy traffic in this area during the Summer and Fall months. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate is for Good Sam discount at a stream front site with a travel trailer. This park was awesome! The young lady at the front desk was friendly and knowledgeable. The park was spotless. Roads are black top paved and new, sites were all flat clean concrete. Park would have been a "10" if it had shrubs or trees between the road and the sites on the end to block the lights and sound a little. We stayed at site #41. We would definitely come back to this park with out hesitation. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Top notch newer campground. Had nice paved sites with new landscaping. Lots of Class A’s, staff was pleasant and professional; restrooms were very clean and modern. Priced higher than some in the area but, perfect location if you are planning on seeing attractions. (Be sure to save a day to see Dollywood it was much nicer than we expected). Wi-Fi worked great. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice RV "resort" type campground. It just opened this season. All paved roads, although a bit narrow, paved sites are wide with nice patio area, picnic table and fire ring. There are nice grass areas between sites with plenty of room between you and your neighbor. The park is meticulously maintained. Pull through sites are a bit short and it would not be possible to leave a toad hooked up to a big rig. Excellent Wi-Fi and cable TV, a great pool with water features for the kids. They are pet friendly with plenty of open areas to walk dogs, we even found a beautiful mowed grass field behind the hotel across the street to play some frisbee with our dog. The location of this park is great: it is 5 minutes to all of the attractions in Pigeon Forge but it is set on a quiet street, away from all of the traffic and noise. It is a bit pricey for the area, but the quiet setting was worth it to us. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What an awesome park. Best RV park we've stayed at in a long time. Look forward to going back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

What a wonderful campground. The location was great for sightseeing in the Pigeon Forge/Gatlingburg area. The owner was very accommodating when making reservations over the phone as we needed a cabin for relatives. The concrete pad was fairly level and nice. We had a stream-side site and the cabin was one of the nicest we have ever seen. Did not use their wireless. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is wonderful. It is one of the best RV parks that I have stayed at. The park is very clean and well maintained. The bathrooms were always clean, and the tiled showers had private entries and were spotless. I constantly saw staff cleaning the restroom areas. The pool at the park is great. It only goes to about four feet deep, but it has all kinds of sprinkler systems set up and it is just deep enough for both kids and adults to enjoy. Campers can also use the pools (indoor and outdoor) at the hotel across the street which is also very nice, new, and owned by the same people. The park has both back in and pull through sites, but they were all about the same size. Each site has a concrete pad, very level, full hookups, picnic table, and a fire ring. Sites are pretty close together but about average for the area. It is a new park, so there are no trees of any real size to speak of, but the landscaping (trees, shrub, decorative gravel) breaks it up and keeps it from looking like a parking lot. The Wi-Fi worked great, and we had no trouble connecting. This place may be a little more pricey than some in the area, but well worth the price. If you look online, you can probably find a coupon at some of the tourist sites. The creek that runs at the back of the property is nice, but not overly impressive since it is kind of small and shallow. Lots of nice big rigs at the park, and none of them seemed to have trouble getting in and set up. No junkie campers at all and very well lit at night.Overall, this place was great. No real negatives, just suggestions: add a dogie park. There is no playground for children, but we only have furry ones, so it did not bother us. Have a great stay! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is one of those campgrounds that you want to tell others to stay away from. Not because it was bad, but because it was one of the best campgrounds I have been at in some time. This was the best I have stayed at in Pigeon Forge. So if I tell you that I will not be able to get a reservation in the future. So, do not stay here. We had a creek side site and it was beautiful, well landscaped and large. We have a 36' fifth wheel with a long bed crew cab dually and had no problem parking all on the site with room to spare. I do believe the pull through and back in sites are smaller than the creek side sites. The management was excellent and extremely friendly. Pigeon Forge is our favorite places to visit and we will be back to this campground, hopefully in October and November. It is across the street from a Main Stay Suite hotel which are owned by the same company. You can use the facilities of the Main Stay Suite if you wish, such as the indoor pool. If you want to be a couch potato while there they have around 98 TV channels on cable. 30 and 50 amp service and well placed hookups. Even those this is a NEW campground the landscaping is beautiful. Trees will come years later as they mature, but my air conditioning and awning will suffice until then, so no problem. I cannot say enough good things about this campground. So, do not go here, stay away, you will not like this upscale campground, that is new and beautiful. Wait until the new wears off and it is overrun with tourists to visit. I really wish I could give this a higher rating. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed at this resort in our 41 foot Travel Supreme motorhome and it's an absolutely wonderful place to camp. We only stayed for 2 nights, but the grounds were immaculate, the pool was very nice, the office staff caring and very personable. We would definitely go there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Absolutely one of the cleanest parks in Pigeon Forge. We have stayed at a few of them and this one is laid out well, extremely clean, and great place for fun with the family. We camped here for 3 nights in July with a 45 foot rig and a toad, and had no problems getting in at night and the place was sold out! All we hade to do was watch out for all the kids riding bikes: which was great for our 9 and 12 year old. We will be back! We camped here in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at this RV Park five times since January 2009. The staff is very friendly and helpful. This campground is new with paved roads and sites. We like it because you are just blocks from all the attractions in Pigeon Forge, TN however you feel like you are away from it all at this quiet location. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Just returned home from a 16 day stay at this campground. We have camped in the area 3 times in the last 9 months, and this is our favorite park. The staff is very friendly and helpful and very accommodating. We were originally scheduled for a 14 day stay and had such a great time we wanted to stay through the 4th of July and added the 2 extra nights without a problem. The owner was on sight almost every day. He is extremely picky about the park and makes every effort to provide an enjoyable stay. Bathrooms and shower house are cleaned 2 times a day and are very clean. The grounds crew worked every day that we were there maintaining the look of the park. It is very clean and well cared for. Even though it is a new park and has limited shade, I would highly recommend this park to anyone who plans to visit the area. The location is fantastic, a little bit of "country" in the city and close to all the area attractions. It is the first stop on Trolley route and gives you access to the area without driving. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is tied for the nicest RV park we have ever stayed at. Everything is relatively new and exceptionally well kept. There is very nice grass between sites with plenty of room and nice landscaping. The shower stalls are clean and luxurious (big with very nice ceramic tile). The campground has a very nice pool and you can use the pools (2 outdoor and 1 indoor) and lazy river at the resort across the street. The trolley stops right across the street which is very convenient. We had a spot next to the stream in which the boys enjoyed playing. The only reason I did not rate this campground a 10 is that it does not have a playground. So, it is missing one thing, but everything that is there is exceptionally nice. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very new "RV Park" so not much shade. All concrete and Asphalt which makes for very level, but hot sites. Very close to downtown attractions. Great "zero" depth pool for kids and access to pools across the street at the hotel (associated with the Park). Very friendly staff. We enjoyed this location. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
After much searching and other campgrounds we have previously used being booked tight, we tried Pine Mountain. We could not have been happier. The staff was superb, park immaculate, can't say enough about the bathrooms and showers. The ONLY downfall is the lack of shade and established trees, but the place is new. It is in the middle of Pigeon Forge, and 2 blocks off the parkway. The solitude would let you believe you were miles away. Our 5 Y/O DD fell and busted her lip running around. When the staff in the officer heard her crying they came running. Once they found out she was O.K., they made a big deal over her and brought her into the office and let her pick out a popsicle "on the house". We fought downpours off and on over the weekend and it so nice to have the firerings in a gravel area and paved roads and paved LEVEL pads. This is going to be our campground of choice from now on when we come to Gatlinburg. The hotel across the street has 2 pools, workout room, 2 hot tubs, and a lazy river that are all available for your use since both are owned by the same owners. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Found this fairly new park by accident. Great place, Staff very nice and helpful. Restrooms and showers were great, strong wi-fi, nice kids pool and hot tubs and 2 more pools across street at sister hotel. The only thing about this park is no shade trees yet. Planted but can't rush nature. I think this is where we will be staying when we are in Pigeon Forge. Will be back !!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park!! Level concrete pads. Paved interior roads.Fire rings for the ones who must burn. Wonderful bath house, with tiled individual showers.Friendly and fast front desk staff. Sister hotel property across the street will allow you to use their lazy river ride and indoor pool. The outdoor pool at the RV resort is clean and the five year old really enjoyed the added water attractions. Trash pick-up from the curb of your site. Shade trees have been planted and landscaping is coming along nicely. They even have some camping supplies in the clubhouse for purchase in case you forgot anything.Resort on the Trolley route. WIFI worked great.Cable worked great. Nice quiet atmosphere. We stayed toward the back away from any possible road noise. This is our second stay and it was nicer than the first. The "barking dog" problem at the residential area behind the resort has quieted down. This is our place of choice for the Pigeon Forge area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground is one of the nicest in the area. It is fairly new and is well maintained. The Mainstay Suites across the road is owned by the same people so you can also use the facilities over there if you want. The pool is very nice, the sites are level and concrete with great fire-rings. The bathrooms were spotless! The roads are paved. The trolley comes by if you want to ride instead of drive to Pigeon Forge attractions and Gatlinburg. Truly one of the nicest campgrounds we've ever stayed in! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We felt this was a wonderful park. It is newer, so the planted trees need more growth. Everything else was great; beautiful clean bathrooms, good holiday weekend entertainment and so nice to have the Trolley right there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very beautiful park that is professionally run. Staff goes out of the way to make you feel welcomed. Did not need a towed vehicle as the trolley stop was in the front of the gate and took you anywhere in the vicinity. Very spacious lots and very clean and maintained. Would recommend this location and will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed at this park twice since it opened last year and have reservations again next month. It is a very neat, well kept park. Close to attractions, yet quiet. The sites are paved and level. This is our favorite park in the Pigeon Forge area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very well managed park!! All around it scored very high marks. It is a newly constructed park so tree growth/shade and some grassy areas are yet to develop, but will be absolutely wonderful in years to come. Reasons for not getting a 10 were; sewer hookup was over 15 feet away which required a purchase of an extension, the camp store is primitive with selections of items, otherwise an excellent campground! Met the owners as we were leaving and they were very informative and pleasant to talk to as well. Based on other campgrounds in the immediate area we would not consider any other. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is great because it is off the "Parkway" (main road through Pigeon Forge) so you aren't bothered by the constant traffic noise yet they have a trolley stop if you need to use the local transportation and do not have a car or want to drive your car. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. They have a great pool for the warm summer months and right across the small street is a hotel that has both an indoor pool that is heated which is great for the winter months that can be used anytime for free and outdoor pools. The hotel indoor pool was open until midnight and it also has a nice jacuzzi indoors. Outside at the hotel they have a lazy river pool and swim pool for warmer months. The campground is pretty sterile with paved pads and not a lot of trees. The surrounding area is nice to look at and there is a creek but it is small and not wooded or anything. If you like a clean, new park, this is it. Since we went there to take in the different attractions in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg and it was still cold, it was a perfect location and terrific with the indoor pool for the kids. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a new campground and is very nice. I was impressed with the size and levelness of the sites - very easy to back into. The roads in the campground were also wide enough to make for easy maneuvering. I highly recommend this campsite to stay at. It is conveniently located and the trolley comes and to the front gate to take you into Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great campground. The staff was fabulous, courteous and could not do enough for you. The sites were concrete and paved with as much room as any campground I have seen in the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area. The showers are individual showers that open to the outside, but are heated. They were very clean as were the bathrooms. The pool in the campground is quite cute and they cleaned it everyday even though it was Thanksgiving and 25 degrees at night. The pool and hot tub at the motel across the street, which we had access too was clean, nice and warm. My only complaint and the reason it got a 9 instead of a 10 was a dog across the street at a residence that barked incessantly from daylight until late in the evenings, around 10 pm. I guess the owners returned home then. I did mention this to the campground clerk that was on duty when we left. She said that she would make sure the campground owner knew about my complaint and others had also complained. Otherwise, this is a wonderful campground, especially when the landscaping gets more mature. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great place! The staff was friendly, and they told us right away we could use the indoor pool across the street in the hotel which is affiliated with them. Sites are very clean and well laid out and level. WI-FI works great. We will return here for sure. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A great campground with huge sites that were level and had concrete pads. Paved interior roads were great for the bikes. Clubhouse with laundry is attached to swimming pool. The Wifi worked great. Some units may require extra sewer hose. All hookups at the very back of each site. We saw some big rigs that did not have an adequate amount. We used the Indoor pool next door at the "sister" hotel. We read that we could do this in prior reviews. The front desk personnel did not volunteer any information until asked. Trash pick-up is provided each morning. There are just a couple of things to add to reach the elite 10/10 mark. A playground for kids, a dog walk, basketball goal, and some planned activities during the peak stay times would be my picks. They are doing an excellent job for a just opened resort. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I wish that I could give this park 100! Seriously, it was wonderful. New, not overgrown and had a resort feel. It is very quiet, even though it is just 2 blocks off of the parkway. I can not think of one thing that wasn't perfect. Pigeon Forge was bumper to bumper and this was a sanctuary around mass chaos. We will be back for sure and soon! Loved, loved, loved this little place. We stayed and traveled to Knoxville for a ball game, very short drive on 441. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a new campground. It is great. Have stayed here twice since it opened. It is central to everything in Pigeon Forge/Smokies. Excellent sites. Cannot find anything bad. Will try to stay here each time we visit the area. Has "sister"motel across the street for non camping family or friends. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very clean nice park. Would have rated this park a 10 if the it was not so expensive. There were very few people here during our stay while other parks in the area were busy. We enjoy walking in the evenings and looking at the nice rigs and people from all over. You meet the nicest people that way. They should lower the rates and get people in. All these empty sites is revenue not received that is difficult make up. Many RV parks in the area don't offer monthly rates but Pine Mountain does, so that was a plus. We would stay here again depending on rates at that time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Brand new park. Found it by internet search for "new campgrounds" in Pigeon Forge area. A little pricey (price for 2 adults and 1 teenager), but worth the clean concrete pads. Sites are adequately spaced except the fire rings at some sites need to be moved. I'm glad no one decided to use the one behind my camper--I was afraid we would go up in smoke!! The sewer connector needs to be dropped a couple of inches--we had to back up in order to dump our tanks. Also bring a good 15-20foot sewer hose. The sewer connector is at the end of the concrete pads. Never used the pool across the street at the motel--will have to try it next time. The small kiddie pool was nice for the kids and it stayed busy!! Will definitely go back--this place will be hard to get reservations in the future--Would give it a 10 except for the fire ring and sewer connect problems. Also close to attractions and the trolley. Will definitely go back!!! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a new RV park and will have shade in a few years after the trees mature. Campsites range in price from $38.00 and up. All pads are concrete and are very large. The owners are great to deal with and own hotel across street. This gives you the opportunity to take time out in the swimming pools and hot tubs in hotel. Sewer hook up is not in a good location so make sure you bring at least 20' of hose. There is no children's playground as of yet, but I have been told that one is possibly coming. Great location to shopping and a trolley stop is across the street at hotel. Some views are better than others in campground, but whole campground can be seen from any site. There are no permanent sites available at this time. Garbage pick up is in the am at each site. Leave trash by road. All in all this is a good campground, but keep in mind that they charge extra per person and child after the first two adults. This may discourage some family camping with families that have children. After age six a fee is added. Also, per campground rules you are not suppose to have clothesline hanging so this can be a problem after visiting the pools or local water parks. Quiet time is 11pm. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This site is located in great proximity to all of the sites of Pigeon Forge. It was easy to find and maneuver within once we arrived. The park was clean although there isn't anything that makes this park stand out above others of a similar nature. The sites were level and most were paved. We were allowed to park an extra truck and small trailer on any gravel site for free. The restrooms and showers were clean and in good condition. The front part of the park and road into the area for RV's is for mobile homes, but they were all well maintained. The staff was friendly and we enjoyed our stay in the Pigeon Forge area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great staff! Clean restrooms. Level sites. Love camping next to the river. Often has singings nightly. Away from all of the hustle and bustle that one would have in campgrounds on the parkway. Feel like we are really camping in the mountains! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park. The sites were fairly level and large. Quiet with fireflies around. Good staff to work with and helpful on tourist information. The river is running by the sites and very pleasant to hear and watch. I would recommend this place to anyone. Loved it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here as a Good Sam Chapter monthly camp out. Beautiful campground. Close to everything, but extremely quiet at night. Check schedule on website as they have gospel singing groups on Saturday nights. They also have a campground wide church service on Sunday if you choose to go. Any of our problems or questions we had, they were eager to help us. One thing that is good to know, however, they do not take credit cards, so check, Debit cards, or cash is the method of payment. We had a wonderful time and would like to camp here again!!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground, we were in a cement pad back in site. It was a little narrow but OK & backed up to the river. Good rooftop dish TV reception, good Sprint cell & internet access, did not use CG Wi-Fi. Nearby road traffic could be heard but not bad. 50a power, water & sewer good. We made good use of nearby pavilion with picnic tables during a rain storm. Good paved wide roads. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here during the recent heavy rains from Tropical Storm Lee. We were next to the river when it almost flooded our campsite. We were concerned about flooding but decided to stay put. The campground staff were very friendly and helpful and stayed up all night to watch river levels in case it did flood. They told us we could move to any available site if we wanted to move (some campers actually left the campground because of fear of flooding) but we stayed put. We have stayed here several times, they are always improving, adding more concrete pads, etc. However, WiFi is terrible, usually could not get on at all or else connections would drop even when had strong signal. Some sites are packed fairly close together, especially if you extend slides. Overall, a very nice park, clean, VERY quiet yet close to everything. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I agree with all the previous reviews. They had a crew here adding more concrete pads. Shows they are improving the park. Only downside is that their Wi-Fi is horrible and was unusable. I would stay here again. Almost 100 channels on cable TV. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price reflects camping here before they officially opened. Many sites are paved with pad. Sites are a bit narrow but with two slides we fit. Narrow grass strip between sites. WiFi worked nicely. Only campsites that have fire pits are those right along the river (all back ins). Many permanent mobiles homes. Many of which are really dumps. Other than that it's a nice park. This park is two blocks from the main road but you don't hear any road traffic. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This place is great. Our club has been coming here for years and we love it. The sites are nice, it is clean and very quiet. The owner is always around to assist you if you need anything. Easy for big rigs to get around. It is very close to everything the area has to offer. Our favorite thing is the creek that runs behind the sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park was a real GEM! Our site was very nice and backed to the river. The bathrooms were clean and a great laundry room. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Excellent campground to stay at while visiting the Smokies. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Really liked this park. It was easy in and out. Yes: they only take check, cash or Debit card. Very clean and quiet (yes there is a ballpark across the river but that didn't bother us.) Would definitely stay here again. Had very level concrete pads. Clean moderately priced laundry, all equipment worked well. We camped here in a Motorhome.
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. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived without a reservation. Sites were big enough for a 31' class A motorhome. We parked by river which was very nice and quiet. Park was clean and well maintained. The only drawback was the internet access did not connect even with their password, so we were unable to use it. Signage could be better. Not sure if we would have found it without GPS. Overall, if they had working Wi-Fi, we would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our second time to stay at this campground. We have stayed at two or three others in the Gatlinburg / Pigeon Forge area: this is the nicest we've seen overall. Very nice campground and the staff is great. We'll be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived without reservations, and were very pleased. The staff was friendly and helpful. We got a back-in site on the river, which was paved and partially shaded. The sites were easy to manage and well laid out. The roads were a little confusing. They are one-way and not clearly marked to lead you through the mobile-home area, and getting in and out of the campground. The whole campground and the permanant area is clean, neat and attractive. We will stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground is great. The price is reasonable & the staff are great. There is an abundance of wildlife; ducks,squirrels, coons, fish & muskrats. The spaces are a little tight but OK. The sites are mostly paved with numerous sites on the river with lots of shade. You can build you own camp fire. Very nice. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here over Easter weekend. The staff was great! The sites were paved and level, several pull-throughs. The campground is conveniently located within Pigeon Forge but far enough off the parkway so that you don't hear the road noise. This is a great campground to stay at in this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here in August. Nice park and very convenient to Pigeon Forge activities. Our only concern was the entrance into this park. It's in a very sharp curve, with a blind spot. It would be helpful if the park or the county, would put up a mirror so you could see oncoming traffic, or at least a big warning sign - we almost got hit turning in once! Would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed 5 nights in August. Not crowded at all good utilities, good set up, a lot of shaded sites, no road noise, concrete pads most sites, easy to back into, good location to everything, beautiful stream deep enough for kayaks and tubing, lots of fish and ducks. Ice and newspaper on site, good Wi-Fi and cable. Owners obviously take a lot of pride in their site and are very nice. One small drawback the band practiced from noon until evening for a youth service (only 1 day) and the music got a little irritating after 5 hours. Will stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Love this park, we have two more trips planned there this year! Level spots, plenty of water pressure, WI-FI works great, no problems with cable or power. Concrete pads with easy access. It is about 2 blocks from the main drag but far enough away to be quiet and out of the hustle and bustle. You can walk to the main drag to catch the trolley and go anywhere in Pigeon Forge, or even transfer to another trolley and go to Gatlinburg. Owner was seen constantly checking out everything to ensure everyone was having a good, safe time. Highly recommend this one. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed at this CG on a recommendation from a friend. This is a nice, clean campground with good amenities. Clean bathhouse and laundromat with cold drinks and ice machines on site. Our site was roomy and many are shaded. We will stay here again on our next trip to Pigeon Forge. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
For the most part, a well maintained campground. Restrooms and showers were only fairly clean and construction (particle board walls and ceiling) not the best for a shower house. Most of the sites with concrete pads were nice but small. The gravel sites were all extremely small and you had to be careful how you parked to be sure you had room for your awning if the camper next door had a slide. Very convenient location and friendly staff. No pool or other activities but a good place to stay if you want to shop or see the sites in Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We liked this park and will be back. The office staff was friendly. They have no supply store but WalMart is about 2 miles away. Our fellow campers were nice and the park was very quiet. Wish the park had a pool, but the area had so much to do that the kids didn't notice. Only bad thing was the lack of a designated pet walk. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 9 / 10 ]
Very nice,clean campground. Close to parkway but was very quiet. It has concrete, very level pads and patios. All the roads are paved. The river is wide,fast moving and clean. They have church services on Sunday AM. Have camped at most of the campgrounds in the area but will continue to camp at Riverbend. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is located at turn signal #1 area. The park is off US 441 about a mile and very quiet. All of the sites are cement with full hookups on each site. I will stay here many more times. Close to everything and still quiet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a awesome location - at beginning of Pigeon Forge at Light 10. Perfect access to get on bypass to Smokey's, through tunnel to Gatlinburg, or straight on to Pigeon Forge. Pro's: Site actually have room for awning and place to sprawl out or let kids play, Sites are very well kept, Pool is small, but not crowded, great shade, awesome location, well stocked store, perfectly level site (first time I didn't have to lift a tire), great arcade for young adults, the bathrooms are insane. Cons: Big Rigs fit, but you will have a heck of a time parking (clearance on road and tight parking mean asking neighbors to move or being blocked in when trying to leave) - Once you are in place the site is worth it, water pressure is low (but campground was 100% when I was there in labor day weekend), TV signal is analog so picture isn't that great. The bathrooms only have 3 showers in each - but the bathrooms are immaculate and done like they were in a mansion (coordinated tile, chandeliers, spa style shower heads and massagers, piped music). You have to see these. Was very happy here. The clearance to back in and maneuver became really annoying, but I'll overlook that for the quality of the experience. The lack of maneuverability is what took score from 10 to 8. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Nice park, but too busy and the sites were small. We have a 40' 5th wheel and we had a time getting into our spot. Super clean campground. I would recommend to others that have a smaller camper. Good location. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great place for small units and trailers, especially if you have kids. Very shady and difficult to get satellite signal at most sites. Very busy place with lots of people everywhere. Hard for big unit. We have 40 ft and if our neighbors had not been home and moved 2 cars we would never have gotten in. Very tight sites with very little room between sites. We would not go back mainly because of the size of our unit. Just really difficult to move around and park and get out. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is just outside Smoky Mountain National Park. The area has many attractions and activities. The campground is clean and has a pool. Our site was right on the river. The most exceptional thing about River Edge is the bathrooms. They are spotless and have private shower stalls with a wood door entry. They are like you would expect at a nice hotel. We would return to River Edge. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stay at Riveredge when we camp in the Smoky Mts. This is a great location, lots of shade, level sites, and very clean. The showers/restrooms are always clean. The grounds a kept up very well. The internet is very good and a good selection of cable TV. The only negatives were that the water pressure is a little low and the hot water in the showers is warm. The lack of HOT water at the shower is the only reason I did not give Riveredge a 10. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Extremely tight spots. Office staff was no help. It took four people to get us backed in. When our neighbors left, several of us had to move our vehicles. There was no fire ring at many of the sites including ours. We were told to burn on the ground. We won't be back to this one only due to the tight, small sites. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Liked eveything but the tight turns/road width. Concrete pads and paved roads was great during the rains. You can also use the motel facilities across the road and it's 3 blocks from the street with the main attractions. It's on our return list. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground has the tightest sites we have ever seen - everyone is packed in like sardines. The office staff was friendly but they did not use good judgement in assigning a site for our 38' motorhome. We had to drive up a narrow, steep, paved road and at the top, make a greater than 90 degree turn. Tree limbs scraped our motorhome all the way up the hill, and had the site across from ours been occupied, we would have NEVER been able to get into our site. Worse, there is no way to turn around once you are at the top; the road does not continue in a loop, it just ends with fully occupied sites on both sides of the road. The sites are so small that cars and trucks line both sides of the road making it impossible for a large rig to turn around without access to an empty site. The only other option would be to back down the hill again! We have been backing into tight spots for years, but this one took us at least 30 minutes of maneuvering, and the aid of 4 other campers who saw our predicament. There may be some better sites for larger rigs at the bottom of the campground, but we definitely didn't have one of them. We would have appreciated being told that the campground was full and didn't have a site suitable for our size rig. Instead, they tried to fit us into a section of the park not designed for larger units. We will not be back to this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground. Sites are small like all in the pigeon forge area. The creek sites have a steep tall bank not good if you have little kids. Bathrooms are super nice and clean. Park is located right before the entrance of the parkway to Gatlinburg right in the middle of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg which is nice. Pool and hot tub area is nice with a small wading pool for little kids 3 and under. It has a very small playground set for kids. Our Neighbor had a large slide out and was within about 3 feet of our fire ring. Close to Dollywood also. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. It was our 1st visit. We found this campground to be fairly tight on the spaces but still plenty of patio area. Each site had a large concrete pad with very nice coated picnic table. The sites were level with plenty of trees for shade. We did miss the fire rings but they did permit campfires on the gravel drives on each site. There were lots of young families with kids on bicycles and at the pool. The pool and playground were both on the small side and very crowded, but it was a holiday weekend. The WiFi service was pretty good but slow in evenings when everyone was online. Overall, we'd stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We loved this park. The restrooms are the nicest we have ever seen, better than most hotels we have stayed in. Although not spacious, the sites are wide enough that your neighbor's sewer isn't in you sitting area as in some parks. We had no problem fitting our 40' motorhome with two superslides and awnings in our site, plus our tow vehicle. Sites are level. Concrete patios are large and well maintained. Very nice picnic tables. We will camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park and staff. Great restrooms. The park and pool area are nice, and the arcade was a nice touch. Only drawbacks are the sites are pretty close together, but we will definitely camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I have mixed feelings about this campground.The sites were very difficult to manage. We have a 30 ft travel trailer and it was very difficult to maneuver in and out of the sites. Several other guests mentioned this as well. The bathrooms are extremely nice and clean. The pool and playground area are well maintained. The sites are very close as the sewer connections from your neighbor will be beside your sitting area. We were unable to put up the awning because the sites were so close. Very convenient to town. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was our first camping trip to Pigeon Forge and we will definitely be back! All the sites were level. The staff was excellent and very helpful. The facilities were immaculate. I felt very safe letting my 8-year old and 5-year old bike around and go to the playground area. They also had a great feature of being able to watch the arcade from security cameras right from the cable feed into our camper. We could watch our kids at any time. Right off the main road, but the campgrounds made you feel like you were off the beaten path. Very homey. Highly recommended. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our first stay at a campground. We were so impressed! First off, the grounds are very, very clean. The pool area is well maintained. The staff is excellent. Everyone was friendly and the park felt like home. It had a very safe feel to it. The sites themselves were all level and had more than enough room for sitting, eating, games or anything else you wanted to do. Located near all activities and attractions. Can't wait to return!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pros: clean site, nice pool and kids pool. New spa by the pool and playground. Located right off the main drag in Pigeon Forge and right outside the entrance to the park. Full hook ups and level gravel sites. Cons: site are very close (which seems to be the norm for the area). A road runs right through the campground. Our site was on this road and proved to be a problem since we had a toddler. Vehicles from other campsites made it a challenge to back in. Wi-Fi was very choppy and dropped connection several times. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park was very nice. The bathrooms were the best of any campground I have ever been to. The staff was very friendly and helpful! The sites are a little too close together and we didn't have a fire ring. I was there along with 2 other friends in their campers and none of us had a fire ring. That was the only down fall, no roasted marshmellows. Had lots of fun and will return in the future. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We had time for only one night here. Paved interior roads and gravel sites. After reading the wonderful reviews we were expecting more. Sites are packed pretty tightly together, as is everything in this area. In our area back in sites are angled for a "herring bone" type pattern. While eating our dinner a large motorhome was backing in to an adjacent site and backed right into the corner of my awning. Bath house was wonderful as described in previous reviews. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful at check in and at other times for information. Campground is on trolley line, but for Pigeon Forge only. We wanted to go to Gatlinburg and had to make two trolley transfers to get there. In general we enjoyed the campground and it is extremely convenient location. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground. The bathhouse is the cleanest I have every seen! There is a camera channel on the cable TV system to be able to watch your kids in the game room. The only draw back is the sites are very close to one another. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at Riveredge this past spring. This is an attractive campground. It is very convenient for all the activities of Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevierville. The sites are somewhat close together at Riveredge. We had a site beside the river which was a nice place to be. The outstanding feature of River Edge was the bathrooms. They were on a different level from any we have ever found at a campground. They were spotless. The tile floors and wooden doors on the private shower stalls are more what you would expect at the Ritz Carlton than a campground. We will be back to River Edge any time we are in the Sevier County area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Riveredge RV Park is our favorite campground in the Sevier County area. It is convenient to all the Smoky Mountain attractions. The family that owns the campground welcomes their campers. The most amazing thing about Riveredge RV Park is the bathrooms. The granite countertops and private showers are what you would expect in a five star hotel. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It has excellent sites close to all shopping etc. Location is in the central portion of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Expect traffic and congestion. A good stop with a tow vehicle for access to national park. We would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here because we have some friends that come every year, now we see why. We had ample room on each side of our camper with the slides out. The campers on the row behind us were pretty close, but it didn't cause us any problems. The roads are paved which was great for bike riding. The bath house was very clean with piped in music and nature sounds which I thought was nice, they were very clean although the shower that I used could have been cleaner. The campground is convenient to all the attractions and outlet malls. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We booked our 2 night reservation in advance. My deposit hold was $50.00. We were able to pick our site at the time of our advance booking. We knew we wanted to be by the pool, restrooms and trolley stop. We were at site 33. I found this to be prime real estate at this park. We hit the pool right away. It was packed. My 2-year-old got hit in the head w/a water ball being thrown the length of the pool. Then I was hit in the head as well. Oh joy! Needless to say the pool is pretty small for the size of the RV Park. We found the bathroom facilities to be spa-like. What a pleasant surprise! The 2nd morning we walked to a pancake house for breakfast. After walking back to the RV Park we hopped on the trolley and didn't return until dinnertime. We knew we would be out on the town for most of our time at Riveredge. We did get to visit the arcade and also did up our wash in their laundry room. The dryers are top notch drying at lightning speed! We also enjoyed the novelty of ordering a pizza to our campsite. There are several to chose from in the area. There aren't campfire rings but you can set up a campfire on the gravel section of your lot. That's what we did. It was cleaned up by the staff the next morning. The garbage dumpster is right by the restroom which we were situated right next to, a nice convenience. This is a nice park to stay at if you are in the area to see the sights and chat up your fellow campers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The only redeeming feature to this campground is it's close to the Great Smoky National Park, Dollywood and Gatlinburg and all the related commercial tourist stuff. Otherwise, it's a pretty dismal place to camp, at least when we were there. While it is on a small river, very small. The river, and the campground, is right on route 441, which is really a highway and the main "strip", so there is constant traffic noise. Most sites are very small and tightly packed in. Our site was right on the main road going through the campground. We were so close to neighbors we could not extend our awning, and our sewer connection was literally under the neighbors picnic table. Behind us, we were no more than 3 feet from two campers. By far the most crowded, overly "stuffed in" campground we have ever stayed at. Barely enough room to park our car in front of our coach to get it off the road. Many others, especially fifth wheelers, had to park their truck partially in the road. It seemed this campground was going way over the top as far as trying to squeeze every possible nickel out of space rental. They left no space unused, even parking rigs on the front lawn of a house on the property. Really bizarre. No place to walk the dog, but there was a small grassy area just outside the campground that we could at least walk him around so he could do his business. We will never camp here again, that's for sure! But, I guess there are a lot of people who like this kind of camping as the place was totally full, as were all the campgrounds nearby this time of year. October is one of the busiest months in this area. People coming out for fall foliage. We actually found the Blue Ridge Parkway to be way nicer and much better fall colors than the Great Smoky Park. And MUCH less crowded! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV park was very family friendly, but we felt packed in like sardines. We had a site right on the river, but just through the trees, you can see the main road and hear traffic noise. The staff were very friendly and the bathrooms were very nice and modern. Everything was well kept. I also wished for trash receptacles that were placed closer to sites instead of having to walk all the way to the restrooms to get rid of trash. Overall, a very well kept park, but I wished for more space and a more "scenic" setting. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We just stopped here on our way to Washington DC. I should have read these reviews a little closer I guess. The sites are extremely close together, and parking is very close quarters to the roads. We are in a 31' 5er, our steps opened out onto the picnic table pad and our slide went out onto our neighbors pad. The whole place is well manicured and restrooms are very well maintained. They say there are no tents allowed, but there's one right up next to the office, albeit a big tent, it is still a tent. This place is well maintained and close to everything, however DO NOT be fooled by their website. The website shows rivers and mountains, you will not see any views at all like the ones on their home page, instead make sure you look at their map on their home page. The sites are that close together. Our site is slanted about 5 to 6 inches from side to side, not too level. So after I backed around the trees, with limbs that need to be trimmed, I could scrapes on the branches that overhang our site and others. I go to enjoy the fun of leveling 5 inches. This may sound a little negative but their website should be a little more honest as well, Also No discounts. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent paved RV resort campground. Well, not really a camper’s campground but a base for relaxation after shopping and sight seeing. On the plus side they have the cleanest hotel quality bath rooms— enough for the pickiest relatives to accept. Nice pool and an up-to-date small playground. All just enough to do for the kids. We came on a slow weekend with nothing going on in town so the main thoroughfare in the middle of the campground (15 mph speed limit) was not an issue for the safety of the kids. Nice well manicure lawns, nicely trimmed trees, and very large concrete pads so when it was raining all weekend, mud was non-existent. Sites are on the small side but adequate— ours did not have a fire ring. The host was nice enough to allow us to use the adjacent site to have a camp fire. If looking for a place to camp and enjoy nature or for the kids to have fun experiencing the busy camping experience, this is not the campground for you. If looking for just fancy place to sleep and sightsee during the day, this is the ideal place. With all of the fanciness, it is still pricey, did not even accept club discounts because to be honest this campground is in the best location between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge right on the strip with trolley service right at your front door. Price includes eight of us including pet, full hook-up, and cable. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Absolutely loved it here. It's close to everything and very,very clean. The bathrooms are incredible. We stayed here in a camping cabin and I will never stay at a hotel in Pigeon Forge again. The workers were always friendly over the phone, even after we had to change our reservations beyond the time allowed due to an emergency! We will stay here many more times!! We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
Bath houses surprisingly clean, bright, modern but a tad too cool...it was 28(f) outside. Sites a little too close for our comfort but it 'worked, and w/o noisy or close neighbors. Overall, a pleasant experience. Interior roads paved and in excellent condition. Concrete decks and 'close-in' hookups. They have included thoughtful and considerate amenities. Super spot. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

A nice campground but the sites in the front row are tight. Our site was on a street that ran right through the camp ground. Not a suitable site if you have little children because some of the cars were going way to fast for that street. However, the rows behind us looked very spacious and the street was much quieter. The facilities are some of the nicest and cleanest I have ever seen. I will visit again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have camped here 2 times. First time was for a few days, second time was 8 days. Campground is tight but well kept. First visit was in October 2005 and the campground was not completely full. Second visit was July and you need reservations or you will not be staying here. Also, we suggest coming in before the crowd because maneuvering with your rig can be tricky and if you check-in late you might have to ask people to move their vehicles in order for you to park. Also, if you go during peak season expect the pool to be crowded. But we enjoy sight seeing so this is not a problem for us. The only problem we had, and we suspect it was because the campground was full, cable and internet did not stay connected. But it was nothing that would keep us from coming back. Restrooms and laundry facilities are very clean. We will be back next time we are in Pigeon Forge. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
On the plus side, It is a very clean place with showers and bathrooms you can eat off the floor. Close to everything in Pigeon Forge and not far from Gatlinburg with a trolley stop on site. On the minus side, spaces are too close together and hard to back into due to the width of the access roads. One street goes right through the park where children ride their bikes, and traffic noise is constant. We live in Kentucky and a snow storm was forecast for 2 days before we were due to leave. We were concerned about the mountains so decided to leave for safety reasons. Due to it being the middle of the week, there were many open spaces but they would not refund our money for the 2 days. No compassion and sometimes rude, although we stayed here last year and was fond of the park, we will never come again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Let me begin by saying that if you are camping because you are looking for a return to nature then this is not your campground. This is more of an RV parking lot. We stayed here in a Pop-up and were so close to the next site that we could hear their conversations. It is located right on the main highway through Pigeon Forge and the traffic noise really picks up around 6:00 AM. However, other than the urban setting, it is an incredibly well kept campground. You couldn't have a cleaner bathouse/restroom which had elaborate fixtures and granite countertops. They even blow/rake the leaves from each site daily. Staff is friendly and helpful. Great location for Dollywood and area attractions and the Trolly stops here. Even though my family would rather stay in a more natural setting such as national park campground, we will definitely stay here again because the facilities are incredible. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

Pretty close spacing. Fortunately I had an end space, might not have been able to get my 36' 5er into a space in the center of the park. Very nice, clean laundry, concrete patio, paved roads. Staff not to helpful (I wound up parking in the wrong space because of poor site numbering, but they let me stay there). WiFi didn't work. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Plus - nice management, good power & water , pool and maintained grounds. This park is not my vision of a River's Edge - a dozen or so sites tighly packed overlooking the creek and on the other bank - a main highway from Gatlinburg to Pigeon Forge. Lots of road noise for folks on those premium sites. It was quiet a couple of rows over but our site was tightly packed in as were most. I enjoy space to breathe and limited my stay to just one brief night. Their own "In-House" Cable TV seemed to be limited to just a few channels - it had typical D-TV issues of total loss of signal in heavy rain. WiFi seems that night but recovered the next morning. Some of the sites are right on the Pigeon Forge Trolley route which rolls through the park till around 11pm. Good if you use the trolley - bad if you have minimal sound proofing on your camper. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Unbelievably nice and clean restrooms, laundry, recreation room etc. Heated pool and hot tub. Nice and helpful staff. Trolley stop in campground, very handy. Excellent camping supplies available. Lots of mature shade. Would definitely camp here again. The road as earlier post described has been changed and is much safer. We camped for 7 days at RiverEdge. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground has many pluse's with a few minus's that make their price a little over the top. We have stayed at this campground a number of times because its close to our home. The biggest problem with this campground is 1-Price 2-Staff attitudes 3-The City Street that runs through the center of it. We feel the price is really to much for what they have to offer. The staff can get real testy sometimes too and one of the ladies in the front office is known to be a bit terse when dealing with her. The biggest problem with this campground though is the paved street that runs through the center. It's busy with cars cutting through to another street and the speeds can be extremely high for campers with kids. It also add's to the noise of the place as its already a very noisy campground being so extremely close to the main drag in Pigeon Forge. My advice if you stay here is to ask for a site on the upper south side. This is especially true if you have small kids or want some peace and quiet. If you get one of the river sites, beware you will have a great deal of traffic noise from the main drag which is on the opposite side of the river. Overall, we are now using other campgrounds in the area after being treated a bit rudely at the front office. They also do not offer any discounts for Good Sam, FMCA or any other organization. What is advertised is what you pay. The other campgrounds in the area do offer discounts to members of organizations. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There is a public street running thru the middle of the campground with a 15mph speed
limit. We had small children, and keeping them from getting run over was a task everytime we were out side. The rest of the park had a 5mph speed limit.
The personnel at the park were more than rude when I had to go to the office. There was no hospitality what so ever from two of the three women I had to
deal with..in fact they were mean and nasty!!!! Will never stay THERE AGAIN OR RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 10 / 10 ]
We stayed 7 nights and loved every minute of it. The park is very nice and the bathhouses
are 5 star. The trolley was convenient as we did not tow a car and did not need one. We plan to go back a couple of times a year. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We camped here on Spring Break of 2003, in a freezing ice storm and 2" of snow and had a blast. The park is sooo close to everything, Dixie Stampede, Gatlinburg, tons of great restaurants. Make sure that you take a ride on the Trolly, my son loved it. Also the campground has a video camera in the game room so that parents can keep and eye on their children while at their campsite. Staff was very friendly and the park is so clean, the restroom/shower house is like the Holiday Inn, maybe even better. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
[ 10 / 10 ]
Loved it! Yes, the sites were close, especially if you had one near the river or pool. The bathrooms and laundry rooms were the cleanest I have ever seen! The help was great and except for the heavy traffic in Pigeon Forge during the weekend, I would highly recommend this park! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

Sites SMALL real close together.Only 2 people per site charge 3.50 extra for anyone eles with you.Nice clean place staff real friendly.Really nice bathrooms We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

very clean great location for Pigeon Forge / Gatlinburg area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Nicest campground in Pigeon Forge. Clean, well maintained, friendly staff. Sites are gravel but level with concrete patio pads. Open all year. Bathrooms resemble a those of a 5-star hotel. Additional $3.50 a day for 50 amps. We camped here in a camper.
[ 8 / 10 ]
Very clean, very nice bathhouses. Best I have ever seen. I was told to expect very clean facilities when recommended to me, but I never was prepared for that nice of bathhouse. We camped here in a camper.
[ 10 / 10 ]
One of the finest parks I've seen. Beautiful park with a rushing river on one side of the park. The cleanest restrooms and showers I've ever encountered. The Gatlinburg-Pigeon Forge shuttles run through the park. Within walking distance to shopping and restaurants. We camped here in a 1999`
Most disgusting campground we have ever stayed at!! I thought perhaps it was slightly shabby per the other reviews, but no, this place is nasty! Dirty, junk piled everywhere, dogs and children running all around, filthy bathrooms that reek of cigarettes, pool looked like a health hazard. We made sure to lock the doors and roof of the Jeep, a safe neighborhood it is not. Stay here at your own peril. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We lost $50 because we paid before looking. They do not give refunds at all. We should have looked before paying. I felt very uncomfortable, so we drove around and found another campground that was a 1000% nicer. Shady Oaks is very shady with a lot of permanent dwellers that have very run down campers and mobile homes. The bathrooms are dirty and run down. They have a lot of stray dogs running around. The owners are very old, and I guess they just can not handle it anymore. Would not stay here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Would not recommend this park if you have other options. If we had not already paid we would have left. They do not give refunds and do not take credit cards. Basically this is just a run down trailer park. Restrooms are falling apart and not clean. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed in this park because it took Passport America. It's an older park with a number of rundown permanent trailers. Most sites are for smaller rigs with only a limited number for larger rigs. Sites are very close together. Very treed park so difficult to get satellite reception unless you have a remote dish. Local channels available via antennae. Would stay at a park in town if had to pay full price. Was quiet except for the oak nuts falling on the roof. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The individual sites need better definition. Gravel has apparently been spread many years before and had not been renewed. Picnic tables were available but were in dire need of refinishing. Tables were covered in something that looked like moss or mold. Several dogs (although friendly) were running free through the camp. Hook-up points were reasonably maintained. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Campground is quiet and off the main road. The park is full of people that live in the park and there sites are very junky. The office of the campground is dirty and smoke filled. The sites are not level and the roads are in desperate need of repair. We camped here in a Motorhome.
You do not wont to go here bad place to camp. Sites really small. Old really bad looking permanent travel trailers people are living in. Wires strung in trees running to them have to watch to keep from getting in them when backing into your site. Dogs running around loose (friendly) but dogie doo all over the place (bad) have to watch to keep from stepping in it. They advertise security on their site but there is none. No cable and no TV reception. They also advertise a store but i didn't see none. Its bad I will never go back even though they are Passport America and you can stay 1/2 price its not worth it. The cabins are real small and looked dirty from what I could see of them also I think the guy beside us (permanent) was drunk. It was really bad. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our choice when coming to Pigeon Forge area. The staff is very friendly. Our favorite site was originally taken when we first booked, and we put in a request for it if it came available. It did, and they changed it for us! We love the fact that you can pick your site when reserving instead of waiting and hoping to get one when you get there. Bath houses were clean. Wi-Fi is not so great, but will do. I guess my biggest complaint would be the roads. It would be nice if they were re-paved. We will continue to come here when in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is our 3rd time staying here. Stayed all week of July 4th. We really like it here. Been rainy for a few weeks and the river was up as much as I've ever seen it. The only complaint that I have at this place is the bath houses are starting to need some remodeling. Wi-Fi was not so good this time, kept getting knocked off line. CG was about 90% full or more. They have put down some gravel on at least some of the middle sites. Would love to see the road re-paved. Grass was a little high, but its been raining a lot and they were trying to mow while we were there. I think bath house cleaning was understaffed this time. I'm getting picky here, but the color of the pool bottom and sides make it look a little dirty. It is a pale blue/greenish color and makes water look like it starting to turn green. Bright blue make pool water look really nice. We will stay here next time we come up. Nothing real fancy, but nice for us. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice park. Pretty quiet. Sites are tight, but handled our 38' fifth wheel ok. Sites are gravel with a concrete pad and picnic table. Ours was level side to side and fairly level front to back. Not much extra room to put up a 12x12 sun shelter. Had to squeeze it in. Wi-Fi was good and bath houses were very clean. Close to the parkway on the south end of Pigeon Forge. Trolley stop in the park. Playground for the kids. Pool was clean. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice people, clean rest rooms, pool, clean campground, easy access to and from. Gravel site a little unlevel, about 2 inches up and could have used more blocks. Good areas to walk our dog. Sites had fire rings, but ours couldn't be used due to close proximity of our neighbor. Wi-fi at our site was non-existent. Our site was plenty large for our 29 ft. trailer and truck. This is a nice park but not a resort and not a 10, but we would return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The campground is clean and well kept. It is easy to find and has convenient road access. It is in close proximity to the DollyWood theme park and is easily accessible to drive back and forth from the park. We stayed in campsite 65. It had a tree, fire ring, picnic table, concrete pad, electrical, water, and sewer hookup. The concrete pad did not line up with the entrance to our door once we located our camper. There was plenty of space between us and the neighbor. The angle of the sites provided additional spatial separation. The campground was approximately 40 percent filled. We appreciated this campground for the friendly staff. They were relaxed and easy to deal with. We also appreciated that there were no permanent residents. The campground did not feel like I was visiting a mobile home community. I actually felt like I was visiting a campground. The restrooms were clean and we saw evidence of a daily cleaning schedule. They were cleaned each morning and the paper products were always stocked. There was no soap in the bathroom to wash your hands. We did not use the pool or playground. It was too cold and the pool was closed. Overall, this campground was clean, well kept, and managed well. It did not provide the lap of luxury, but provided us with exactly what we were looking for in our visit as a launching place for day trips to DollyWood. We will be using this campground for our next trip to Pigeon Forge in a couple of months. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is our 2nd time at this campsite, and we really like it. Stayed at site 76. Great site next to big bath house. Weather was not on our side while there. Cold and rainy till the day we pulled out. Anyway, this is our campground of choice when coming to the Pigeon Forge area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We really liked this park. All the utilities (water, electric, sewer, internet) worked flawlessly. Lots of shade, and the sites were wide enough that you didn't have that cramped feeling with your neighbor. I would caution those who want a river-side site: These sites are sloped pretty severely toward the river, and they aren't very deep. Best for pop-up sized units. There are three bathhouses, so no matter which site you have, you are never very far from a squeaky clean one. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We chose this campground for trolley access. Site was fairly easy to level, on the river. Staff was friendly and helpful with our questions about the area and fishing licenses. Quiet park, even with Pigeon Forge's main drag just a short distance away. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Can't beat the location, in between Gatlinberg and Severville. Stayed at site 201, river site with a lot grassy space behind the bus. Nice fire pits, good Wi-Fi, water and clean friendly park. Small playground for kids, decent pool. Will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good mix of riverside, sun, and shade spots. Nice helpful employees. Enjoyed the.pool. Trolley stop inside park. Pretty location and convenient. Sites weren't huge but typical. Clean, showers with good pressure.small game room. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
First the good. The people who work here could not be nicer. They will go out of their way to help you any way they can. The Pigeon Forge Trolly makes two stops in this park and it is a very easy way to see the area. The location is great. Easy to see all the sights in the area. The Bad-- Our site was so steep that it was impossible to get it level. It was site 903. If you want to be level, avoid this site. There were several in the park that appeared to have this problem. The office people tried to help me get my unit level but the grade was just too steep. The bath house were a bit short in showers. They staff did a good job keeping them clean, but the bath house nearest us had just one shower. The sites along the river are really nice and if you get a bit further from the entrance, they seem to level out. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our first 'real' trip out in our camper.The size of the park was just right. Not too big, not too small. Great location. Site 83 is where we stayed and it was easy to get in. All hook ups worked, but I think water pressure is a little low. Bathhouse was small and not real clean,but livable for camping. Water pressure in the bathhouse was great. River front sites have alot of traffic including the trolley system till midnight. Pool OK. Lots of shade around it, so water is pretty cool.I will probably come back to this one because I loved the location and size. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice shaded sites with mature trees. Very clean and quiet. Two trolley stops right in the park for easy access to Pigeon Forge and Dollywood area. Restaurants are also within easy walking distance. Wi-Fi signal was strong and fast at my campsite. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 5 days and just loved it! The river front sites are the best. My rate was for 4 adults and two vehicles. The restrooms were cool and clean. The trolley stops in the campground (super convenient). The sites are pretty close together, but with the river in your back yard it wasn't a problem. Make sure you have plenty of blocks/jacks if you take a river front site. I would have given it a 10 but the WiFi was unavailable most of the time. We will definitely stay here again next year. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We found this park as a last minute reservation. As my bride says, "all things will work out" and it really did this time. We camped in sites 63 & 64 and they were very level sites for our 40' MH and 5th wheel. The smaller sites next to the river are not level and designed for small units and tent campers. Located on the end of Pigeon Forge, it was very quiet and the trolley ran by every 30 minutes to carry you shopping or to the attractions. No need for a second tow vehicle. This is a hidden campsite and used by the locals as their retreat away from home. A definite campground to stay. Playground is very small and also is the pool area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stay here 2 to 3 times each year. This is not a resort type RV park, but for ease of access to Pigeon Forge, it's great. Sites can be a bit close together, but we've never had a problem pulling a 33' travel trailer with a long wheel base, crew cab tow vehicle. Nice little playground with a fence and gate. Trolley comes right through the campground with 2 stops. Bathrooms are always clean, but a bit old. Staff is nice. They allow a late check-in. We'll continue to stay here in the future. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The park was nice as always. $42/night was for 1 adult and 3 kids on the third row. Excellent reservation system online; you can pick your exact site and see pics. River sites can have a bit of a slope, but all the others are fairly level. Concrete pads, fire pits, and picnic tables at all sites. No concrete pads on the river, however. Right off the main road, but well away from the traffic. It also connects to a small back road that will get you to Dollywood in just 3 minutes. I recommend this place. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stay here about 2 times a year. Staff very nice. sites are close and some very unlevel. Wi-fi was poor and could not hook up. I do not like their no refund policys although I have never needed it. Not the best park, but far from the worst. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It was convenient to town. Very nice place. My only complaint is that there was no soap in the bathroom and you had to bring your own. Otherwise I would recommend it highly. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We spent 7 nights at this campground. We were on the second row and these spaces are flat so no leveling of camper side to side necessary. The washer/dryer facilities were very clean with new looking machines. The first night the cable was not working very well and a call to the office brought a repairman first thing the next morning. The bathhouses were clean though we used on board facilities since we had full hookups. Because the campground is on the back road, we were able to go to Dollywood without entering the main drag. 5 minutes and we were there. We will make this our campground any time we travel to Pigeon Forge. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I am very happy with this campground. They welcome dogs, the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. While some spots are small, some are really nice. I am going to ask for the same space again next year. Fall is wonderful in the Smokies. The "stream" that runs along the campground is actually the Little Pigeon River. The sites are gravel and fairly level, but extra 2x6 pieces of wood under the levelers is needed. Some sites are worse than others. The WiFi is slow - 802.11b, but the signal is strong everywhere. There are also a couple open nets via the nearby motels. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were disappointed only because we were not expecting "city" camping. From the CG's website, we thought that the location was more remote. We stayed for one week. We excitedly pulled into our riverfront site... only to notice that there is a moderate rise, i.e., 5 to 7 story motel on the other side of the creek with several balconies of folks peering down to watch us back in and set up camp. These buildings are strategically just outside of the view in the CG's web site photos. We did not like the thought of being watched the whole time while we camped, nor the lights and sounds of a motel less then 100 ft away so we went back to the office to seek another site. The staff was very nice and cheerfully let us switch sites. We choose one in the back and against the woods. They even gave us a credit since these were cheaper sites. Otherwise, the campground was clean and well maintained with level sites. The free pancakes at breakfast across the street was nice. The campground store was well, I would not call it a store as they had very little. However, being in town anything you need is close by. Yes, the trolley/bus does run through the CG. Nice if you want to use this transportation, but if you have little ones that wonder off site, you may have to keep an eye on them. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We didn't spend much time here since we were in Pigeon Forge for the Chevy Avalanche National Get-together. Staff was extremely friendly and we were offered free pancakes at a local pancake house. Our site was on the river and we didn't have any problems leveling. Site are extremely close together. There were plenty of ducks to watch and many campers were tubing. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is fine for a one or two night stop-over while in Pigeon Forge; however I wouldn't recommend it if you want to have a peaceful quiet time at your campsite. This is because the sites are extremely close together offering zero privacy. The sites on the water were across a narrow stream from a multi-level building. I was glad that visitors to the campground were not charged a fee to enter, as is the case with most private campgrounds. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The staff was friendly and helpful allowing us to choose our site. The trolley runs through the campground about every 30 minutes. The cement patio was nice. The bath house was clean, but could use some updates allowing more room in each. Our grandson enjoyed riding his bike and the swimming pool. This is our third time at this campground and it had a new playground. As an added bonus, we were given tickets to eat free pancakes each morning at a nearby restaurant. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great park. I have stayed in many State parks that were not as nice as this one. Staff was very friendly. We had a site right on the river so view was very nice. WiFi was not so great but did work better near the center of the park. Most sites look level except for ones near the river. We spent some time leveling our trailer but was ok, adds to the charm of this park. Lots of geese and ducks, even saw a beaver one day. There is a Tram that comes by about every 20 minutes. Perfectly positioned between Smoky Mountain attractions and Pigeon Forge attractions. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We had a wonderful stay here. It was prime time in Gatlinburg/PF area. The campground was full, of course. The sights were VERY close together, but the back sites where we were we very long, so there was plenty of room in the back for campfires, etc. It looks to me like a big rig might have issues pulling in here--there are peoples trucks and toads all over the road, making it difficult to navigate, but manageable. We will go back here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This one didn't tickle my fancy. We were in a river site that, due to a couple of strategically placed telephone poles, was very difficult to back into and was so pitched that there was no chance of getting level without lifting my rear axle 10 inches off the ground. A poorly stocked store and indifferent office people who just shrugged their shoulders when I asked if I could be moved sealed the deal. I will say that being backed up to the river was really nice. The kids and the dog had a ball. Was able to sit outside and listen (couldn't see) Clint Black perform on Saturday night. Being a holiday, it was really busy, but there were 3 suitable sites that stayed open even though I had asked to move. Additionally, due to heavy traffic on the main roads, allot of people cut thorough the campground to save time. It's a wonder some of the little kids didn't get hurt. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice campground, we stayed at site #2 and even though it is near the entrance you get lots of room. You can get the rig level pretty easy.The site is right next to the stream, the deeper you go into the park the sites get higher from the stream. Towards the end of the row you see a parking garage on the other side of the stream. The sites away from the stream look like they just got concrete pads, which is nice.It is nice and quiet at the campground. The kids had fun riding there bikes and swimming in the pool. If we ever go back to Pigeon Forge (tourist trap) we will stay there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here for 10 days in December. We were able to enjoy Winterfest and a very nice CG that wasn't crowded. Mother nature tossed us a bit of light snow and then record setting single-digit cold. It would take more than inclimate weather to inhibit the exuberance of this park's staff. A lot of work has been going on for the past couple of years and the upgrades are readily evident. This has got to be the numero uno CG for family camping in this area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed every minute. The only negative was the Internet service could be slow or unresponsive at times because it was satellite (DirecWay) into the campground versus DSL or cable. The only other issue was when we tried to extend our stay, the office didn't seem able to or didn't try very hard to accommodate us but this was our fault and not the campground. We will definitely be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I highly recommend this campground. Sites 1 - 10 are the best waterfront sites, but most all sites are good. Clean pool, restrooms and WIFI service. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This was our first time camping in this area. We had a really good time. Campground was in a good location. Close to everything but off the beaten path to give you some peace. Trolley comes by I believe about every 30 minutes to take you in to pigeon forge. We stayed right by the pool and the kids loved it. Sites are a little tight but it was fine. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here in a Travel Trailer the last week of June 2006. Let me first say that I have never traveled to this area before so the whole experience was a bit overwhelming! I was not anticipating the unbelievable traffic/crowds and commercialism we found in Pigeon Forge. That being said, I was disappointed to find that the campground was not located in the mountains (not even the foothills), but was just one block off the main strip in Pigeon Forge. We requested a stream-side site and luckily were assigned a very nice one. However, some stream-side sites are directly across the stream from a parking garage. The campground was clean, very quiet, and small which we greatly appreciated after battling crowds everywhere else. It is also very close to Dollywood and everything else Pigeon Forge has to offer. Another nice thing about the location is that it is at the far end of Pigeon Forge and offers convenient access to Gatlinburg, as well. We visited many campgrounds during our stay and believe that Twin Mountain was certainly the best place to stay in Pigeon Forge. Just don't anticipate a mountain-type of atmostphere at this campground. My husband and son had a ball tubing on the stream, and the pool was always nice and clean. If we were to visit Pigeon Forge again, we would definitely stay here. For a campground more in the mountains, you might want to consider staying in Gatlinburg a very short drive from Pigeon Forge. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
It had been a couple of years since our last visit here. The policy of ongoing improvements was very obvious. The electrical service was new at all sites and paved patios were the order of business during this visit. I guess about thirty or more patios were done and progress was being made on providing this amenity to all sites. What had not changed was the friendliness and professionalism of all the park employees. This is made clear to you from reservation to check-out. We had a wonderfully relaxing stay once again at what has to be the "Best of PF!" We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Camped here the last of September. Weather was a little warm but the campground is very nice. Bath houses are clean and pool was very kept up well. Campground has a little store , clean laundrey facility, three clean bathhouses,and a pool. Stay here when we come to Pigeon Forge a couple of times a year. Lots are spacious with fire ring. Very peaceful and quiet. Trolley runs through campground every 30 minutes or so if you don't want to drive. Gas station and grocery store close by with access on side street so you dont have to get on the Parkway. Love coming here and would recommend it to any one. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Great shady location for tubing on the Pigeon River. Besides the outter and middle sites, they have around 35 spacious water front full hool-up sites on an active portion of the creek that have substantial usable room behind your rig for grilling and enjoying the shade and creek. Great utilities - Cable TV was from the local cable provider with all of the channels. Picnic tables and fire rings can be found at most sites. Firewood can be puchased at the store. There are several well placed bath houses and the Pigeon Forge Trolley passes through this camp. We fell in love with this place and plan on being regulars in our 41 ft. coach. We camped here in a Motorhome.
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. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park was very nice,very clean,and quiet. Lots of shade with adequate room to park. Creek
was fun for the kids to go tubing and the water was cold. One block off the main drag behind Dixie Stampede. Camped here in a 5th wheel in 2003. Will be back again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

We had an excellent experience from the reservation phone call forward. A young man assisted with reservations and was working while we were here. He is the manager that most parks dream about. Second to none! The park is very well maintained. Shower houses and laundry immaculate. We are already looking forward to our next visit. Web site makes site selection easy and resrevation confirmation was in hand in three days. Trolly stop in park was just too convenient for words. We even rode trolly to Gatlinburg. (Fifty cents instead of six bucks for parking.) A great little park! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 10 / 10 ]
We stay at this campground every year during Thanksgiving. Great folks, prime
location, on Trolly route, older park but taken care of. We camped here in a camper.
Stayed here last year, about the same time. Nice wide shady sites, concrete pads & fire rings. Close to the area attractions, but far enough off the beaten path, very quiet. There are no shower or bath facilities. We made the trip to Cades Cove in the Smokies the day before the so called Gov't. shut down. Previous posts had some issues with water quality, we didn't have any issues with the water. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We camped there for 5 days in our motorhome. I called the day before on the road and they had a campsite available for us. We then paid on a daily basis not knowing how long we would be in the area. Again the staff was wonderful. It is a quiet campground. No bathhouses or showers, but we are self contained so no problems. Great Wi-Fi service and cell phone coverage (Verizon). I would camp here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park. Very quiet. Check-in was smooth and staff was very friendly. We stayed in one of the outdoor kitchen sites. That was a nice feature, but we'll skip on that next time and save some money - too much sun. The park is bordered by two streams which our dogs and grandson loved. The campground is far enough away from the madness of the strip, but a quick drive in. There is no pool, no bath house, no laundry = nice and quiet. AT&T service was spotty. Wi-Fi was intermittent. Grounds are meticulously maintained. Lovely to listen to the birds in the morning. We'd definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for 2 nights. It is a nice, quiet campground. Everything worked, but the water had a funny smell, we weren't sure what that was. Sites are wide, compared to most campgrounds in the area. we thought the price was reasonable. We had a regular site. You can request a creek-side site, but it is a higher price. We had some trees on both sides & in the back of us. we had some shade as well. We arrived after the office was closed. They had a folder with our name, site, paid receipts, brochures & coupons for the area. This campground has all full hookups & free Wi-Fi as well, which worked very well. Verizon wireless worked well also. There are no bathouses or swimming pool, so if you need these, you wouldn't want to stay here. You need to be fully contained to stay. It was very quiet during quiet hours - 10pm to 8am. If you like a quiet, peaceful & relaxing campground, then you would love staying here. If you need activities, this isn't for you. Would highly recommend this campground. The reason for the 9 rating is because of the smell of the water. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pretty park, you have to weave through Las Vegas in the Smokies, and our neighbor was 20 feet away. I'm sure the sites with the outside kitchens were outstanding. Ours wasn't. We won't stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is owned by a young couple who are very professional and helpful. The area is landscaped and decorated in a pleasing manner. The couple live on site and handle after-hour issues quickly and promptly. The interior roads are paved and level. We were very pleased with the park except for a few items. Our gravel site was slightly off level where I had to board the front jacks but not severely. The water pressure was consistently low which required us to use our water pump. Sites were much farther apart than most other RV parks we observed in the area. Wi-Fi had good strength but had to be reset several times by the owner. Verizon cell strength was strong but AT&T was weak to none. Park was very busy and was full most of the time. We would certainly stay here again. A very nice place with great owners. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one of the most beautiful, quiet, serene RV parks we have camped at. Even though we had a general site, rate was good ($32-$36) with plenty of room for slide-outs and awning. Staff was excellent, and although there are no facilities on site (restrooms, showers, laundry) we didn't require them. We will definitely stay here again! Very close to Pigeon Forge, yet still away from the crowds/traffic. GREAT PLACE! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for 6 days, well laid out private sites. Location is ideal, quiet but still close to Pigeon Forge strip. There are no bathroom or shower facilities but with full hookups at each site they were not missed. Park is very well maintained. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
What a hidden gem. Campground is located about 3 miles from the main drag through Pigeon Forge, but it is in another world. Treed sites along a brook. Very quiet and peaceful. Not the crowded feeling you get at other campgrounds in the area. No restrooms so you have to be self-contained. No swimming pool so not the best for families, or if you like to cool off in the pool. But if you can do without restrooms and a pool, this place is ideal. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of the best parks we've camped at. Campground runs between two streams and if you can get a spot along the stream, it's really nice. You can hear the running water. We had a pull in site, so out our front window was an open, wooded area and stream. Park is peaceful and quiet, and had a gated dog area with trees for shade. There are no bathrooms or showers here so you have to have your own facilities. With full hookups this is not a problem. Access from 441/321 is no problem and there is unlimited things to do in the area. Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and Sevierville are all within 10-15 miles. Smokey Mountain National Park nearby, scenic roads, Cades Cove, and hiking trails. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed on a deluxe creek site on the Cove Creek side on site 4. We loved our site but the ones further down had more yard. We moved over to 30 later in the week and liked it the best. We enjoyed our stay here and even caught a couple of fish in Walden Creek. Far enough from town to be away from the noise but close enough for convenience. There is also a great little grocery store around the corner to pick up things you forgot that has a lot of locally made items. Will definitely return here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice little park, paved road, level gravel spots with concrete patios. Quite with nothing to do at the campground but play in the creek. Easy drive to smokie Mountains. Large grocery store and small market, deli close. WiFi and cable work great. No bathrooms provided, if you need them stay somewhere else. We loved the quite and the price. New park, hope it stays the way it is now! We camped here in a Motorhome.
I almost hesitate to let the word out about this CG. This is a CG built and run by fellow RV'ers. Each site has full hookups. There are no bathhouses. Most sites have some amenity that is unique to the CG like big fireplaces, kitchen/grill/ or patio furniture. The sites are level with ample room between sites. The location is off the main roads and is very quiet at night. No playground for the kids, but a nice dog walk area. We've either stayed at or visited most of the CG's in the Gatlinburg/PF area and this is our favorite. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a very scenic little park with lots of trees. I had a creekside site and it was beautiful and nice to listen to and walk alongside the creek with my dog. There's a great general store and cafe a short drive away, on Walden's Creek Road, in a little shopping center. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is about 30 minutes away, with lots of antique stores, shops and restaurants along the way. I highly recommend the Great Smoky Mountain Heritage Center outside the park, and Cades Cove inside the park. On the downside, my site was not level. I was able to get in touch with the manager of the park on the phone to answer some questions, but there was nobody there during the couple of days I stayed when I went to the front office. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a delightful park. Off the beaten path, but not far out of town. Very quiet and pretty. May be little over priced for the facilities, but all of the area parks were priced high. We really enjoyed our stay and would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice small quiet park. Not wooded, more like a city park with small trees and shrubs. Larger trees near creek. Gravel sites a little unlevel in spots. Concrete patios with available outside fireplace hearths. Some have grills. Wi-Fi inconsistent in the back of the campground. No bathhouses. A dog walk area available. Near a small creek which is nice. Not far from Pigeon Forge strip. You have to travel a country road, but big rigs should not have a problem. Our 36 footer plus toad did fine. Staff friendly upon check-in. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground with lots of shade & my site was spacious.. There are many many bugs, had to battle them every day & night. The water is terrible, make sure you have bottle water to drink. The campground is some what new but we can see them trying to make it better each year.. Wi-Fi was good. Interior roads are paved but the sites are gravel with concrete patios.The office is very un-organized, in our party, we had reservations, & confirmations, to be placed together but when arrive we were scattered out. There was 3 sites ALL together, empty, during our entire stay. We all could have stay together if office had properly organized. We will probably stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here while visiting the Smokie Mountains and the Pigeon Forge area. This is a great, well kept park. We spent a week there and enjoyed sitting outside in our site. There was a patio on each site with a picnic table. We were in site 18 which was shaded and quiet. We had a Cardinal that seems to like our RV as it spent a lot of time pecking on our windows, but that was the only thing I could say that was not a compliment to the park and the friendly hosts. The park was close to the attractions with easy access to the Smokies. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice place to park your RV while visiting the Pigeon Forge area. Only a 10-minute drive to the "Parkway" main drag. Well maintained campground and easy to access. The only disappointment was that the sewer connection was at least 10' from the water & hydro hookups (at all sites) so you'll need extra sewer hose to connect. It would be nice if they eventually build a bathroom facility for all to use. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very small campground but we loved it. It is bordered on both sides by creeks. There is no pool, no bathhouse, and no store, so you will have lots of peace and quiet. The owners are very helpful with information about attractions and directions. The landscaping between sites makes you feel like there is no one besides you. The creeks provide a beautiful place to take an evening stroll. The sites have different levels of amenities available. This was a wonderful place to stay while visiting Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. This campground ranks as one of our favorites so far. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice. Lots of Shade for you & your RV and roomy. Waldens creek flows on both sides of the camp. Well kept acreage. Maybe 30 sites, but this is what makes it nice. Not wall to wall people. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We just returned from out trip to Pigeon Forge, and this was my favorite campground there so far. We have stayed at one other but toured several. One thing about Pigeon Forge is that the campgrounds are packed in and very tight. I did not feel this way at all about this campground. The sites are some of the largest at a non-state park. We did not have a hearthside or outdoor kitchen site, but enjoyed ours just the same. They have paved patios and full hookups. WiFi was very strong and the cable TV worked great. The only complaints have nothing to do with the campground per se. It is a little farther out than others we have stayed in, but we enjoy Cades Cove, so that was more accessible. Also, there were many, many no-see-ums. So bring your bug spray and citronella. We had candles but I wished for torches. Very quiet and well maintained. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Only reason I didn't give this park a "10" was just because it doesn't have shower houses nor a pool. However, that does not take away from this park as far my wife and I are concerned. The folks in the office are very nice and the park is extra clean. Other than a few dogs barking once in a while, this would be the best park to relax in I've ever seen. Sites are large and well laid out. We stayed on one of the standard sites and were well pleased. Will stay here again and would recommend it to anyone. It's just far enough out of town to be really nice. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Actually the address is in Sevierville but sign for Pigeon Forge is right next to the driveway. Great park. Agree with everything mentioned before. If you want a pool and rec hall and activities at a campground, then this is not for you. But if you want spacious, quiet sites be sure to check it out. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This place is amazing. Probably the nicest place we have ever stayed. Everything was done right. Wide roads, easy access for the sites - both pull through and back-in, as well as everything working perfectly. Sites are all level, we had a nice patio, grass is trimmed, and sites are spacious. The majority of the sites are creekside. We travel with our Labrador, and they have lots of places to walk the dog, big fields, and a pet friendly area. The owners did a great job of building this place. Small enough that it is quaint, but so well thought out. No bath house or restrooms, but that is OK for us. Great cable and best internet. It is off the beaten path, but that is a great advantage here. If you want a pool, noise, and a playground, then this is not the place for you. However, if you want a great serene locations, quiet area, and picturesque setting - then I would recommend this place. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We arrived the day before Thanksgiving for our 2nd stay at this park this year. We were greeted again by the owners at the cabin check in area and they were super nice, as always. We stayed in site #18, right across from the Walden's Creek side, but in the middle. We stayed on Cove Creek Side, on the creek during our last stay and went ahead and booked this site before we left from our last visit. This spot made it easy to just take a walk over to the creek area while walking our doggy and the huge grassy area on that side. It is easy to get to the creek on this side, of course there are houses across the way, but they don't bother you at all. I enjoyed listening and watching the water flow in the creek. They have the best Internet of any of the parks in the area, however phones are spotty though due to being in between the mountains. This is our favorite park because of the location, how clean and nice it is, the size of the sites are HUGE and it is off the beaten path, but still close to everything you need. We don't mind at all that it doesn't have a pool or bathhouse as we have our own bathrooms and never really use the amenities at campgrounds. We went to Dixie Stampede on Thanksgiving, drove to Gatlinburg for the lights, walk downtown and eat at No Way Jose's, went to Dollywood for the Christmas shows and lights and just enjoyed staying at the campgrounds on some days. This is so convenient to everything you want to see and do and local shopping. If you need to run to the store there is a country store down the street or Kroger is not too far away. You can catch the trolley if you want to walk to the stop, which is about a mile down the street. This is one of the nicest parks in the area...you will never go wrong when staying here! We can't wait until we are camping here again! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
It is a new campground and they gave us one of the newest sites. It did not have sewer, but we knew that going in, so no problem. It is a bit out of the way from everything, but sometimes that can be nice too. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Just want to say if there was a rating above 10 then we would definitely rate them higher. This park is very well maintained, clean, decorated & friendly! This has been our favorite that we have stayed at in the Smoky Mountains, and we plan on staying here each time we visit. Every other month at least! Now let me tell you about the park. There is the cutest covered wagon at the front entrance of the park with a lot of decorations throughout. The office is the cutest little log home style office and very nice inside. The owners are super nice, live there in a travel trailer next to the office and really care about their guests. We stayed on Cove Creek side in spot 4. Upon backing in we just couldn't believe how huge the sites were. Nice, gravel drive/parking area with huge pea gravel concrete pads and fire rings. You can also get sites with outdoor kitchen/grills or fireplaces. The site is the size of 2-3 sites you normally get at other campgrounds. You truly have a yard all the way around your camp site. There are 2 creeks, Waldens Creek is on the other side. Love the wooded feel and the creeks. The electric panels were lit up with your number so if you arrive in the dark you know where to go, and it makes for a great night light too (they leave the light on for you). We have a teenager and he really enjoyed the paved level roads as he loves to ride his scooter. He also liked being able to use his iPhone and the Internet since it rained a few days of our trip. Our doggy loved this park: enjoyed walking and roaming everywhere, especially the creek area. They have a nice fenced in area if you want to take your doggy in there to potty, along with a waste scooper and bags handy for you. We have our own, but it was nice to have that available too. The dumpster is right beside it so it is easy to toss in the bag when you scoop it up. You carry your trash over to the dumpster to keep from having it outside in case the bears are around. The park is so quiet, peaceful and attracts friendly campers as we talked to almost everyone in the park on our stay. I think the only thing that was a negative, if you want to call it that, is that there is not many channels of cable TV, so we will hopefully have satellite to carry on our next trip. The Internet was great though: better than any other park we have stayed at in the area. We have iPhones: in the area we stayed at we could get reception, but sometimes you had to walk around to get a signal. We didn't mind at all that there were no bathroom facilities as we have our own and never use them. So you don't want to stay here if you need a bathroom, showers or pool. This is a newer park so they will probably add things as time goes on as they have a lot of land, but it is perfect just the way it is. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to our next stay at Thanksgiving. We stayed here in September and enjoyed going up to Gatlinburg, Black Bear Jamboree, Dinner Show in Pigeon Forge and Dollywood. So it is close to everything. You can go the opposite direction and go up to Townsend. This park is off the beaten path, but not too far from everything. It's close to grocery stores, pizza delivery, Kroger, gas stations and Dollywood. I think it is only 4 miles off the Parkway. There is a trolley stop down the road on Wears Valley, before you turn onto Walden's Creek. We said that this was our most favorite camping trip to the Smoky Mountains so far and one reason is this campground was so nice. We look forward to returning for Thanksgiving. We travel every other month and this is our new place to camp. Great family, kid and pet friendly park! We have already referred this place to other camping friends. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice quiet park, well laid out, good spacing between sites. A few sites had some drainage issues from recent rainfall, but none appeared flooded or unusable. Nice enclosed dog walking area. Some sites had deluxe propane grills and/or fireplaces. Wi-Fi coverage was excellent. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
New park, gravel roads and sites. Friendly owners who clearly take pride in their park. Stable electric, good water pressure. Adult oriented as there is nothing for children (no pool, playground, etc). A little further away from the main drag but that made for a nice and quiet park. Must be self-contained as there are no toilets/bathhouse. A creek runs on both sides of park. Sites along creek on office side of park sloped down towards road and could have been a little more level, center sites have new trees so not yet enough shade area. Satellite on some sites is “iffy”. Off leash dog area was nice but lacks bench or picnic table to be able to sit and watch “Spot” playing. Nice spacing between sites was a refreshing change from others in town where you are crammed one on top of another. Run by a very nice young couple and everything was tidy and clean. One big drawback was the ants: there were many untreated ant hills all around the concrete pad. They swarmed up my wife’s leg and those of our dogs leaving really nasty bites. Ant powder around the wheels and hoses is an absolute necessity. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This a small campground on a very nice piece of property. Quiet. The sites are BIG. Easy to get to from highway. Cable TV worked great. The landscape is very well kept. The owner was working hard in the campground the 2 days we where there. He helped me find a local tire shop that worked out good for me. Close to local strip/Pigeon Forge. Not much to do in campground other than walk along side a nice creek. Hope to stop at this park again some day. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very quiet park approx 10 minutes from downtown Pigeon Forge. Well spaced sites, very clean, open ground between two creeks for kids/dogs/walking. Once trees have matured along inside sites, it will help greatly with the heat and sun. If your looking to camp somewhere and not be smashed up against your neighbor or have to listen to their kids, dogs, fights, parties, this is the place. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Don't miss this park. This is a small, quiet park. Lots are large, shaded and level. Great location for the area attractions. We loved it so much we stayed 2 extra days to sit and watch the creek flow by. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We love small parks. We especially love small parks without the pools and other attractions that are nice for families with small kids. The creek front sites on the office side of the park are the best for privacy. The lower numbers are closest the creek bank but higher numbers have a bigger "backyard" which is nice for walking your dog. The nicest place to walk your dog is along the creek bank of the other side of the park (25 through 32). There is a berm to make it possible to walk this area without infringing on anyone's privacy. There are some homes across the creek on this side (the reason for my preference of office side). It is a trade-off. There are no bad sites. Patios are paved, pads are gravel but very level, interior road paved. As stated in other reviews, no bathhouse but we have never used one anyway. The only thing I would add would be a laundry room. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pros: Pretty park, landscaping at the front entrance is beautiful. Sites are wider apart than usual. Creeks are small and pretty. Cons: Owner mowed around the other outer areas, but during the 6 days I was there, my site was never mowed and the taller grass was difficult with small dogs. The water at our site smelled strongly of Sulphur. I asked the owner about it, she said it was well water and she would check, but never heard anything else. Also would have liked to use the dog run, but poison ivy was on some of the bases of the trees. No bathhouse. Overall, a pretty park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We just returned from a week long stay in the Gatlinburg area. We would HIGHLY recommend this park. The owners were friendly and helpful. The location was fantastic. Even though it's address is Sevierville, it really is closer to Pigeon Forge. It is out of town just enough to be really quiet and peaceful. The grounds were kept very nice and clean. It sits between 2 creeks that run constantly. The only down fall for some would be that it doesn't have restrooms and showers. For us that was not a problem as we are self contained. It doesn't have anything to offer such as a pool, arcades, etc., but it does offer peace and tranquility which we LOVE! Even though there wasn't a pool, our 10 yr old son had a blast wading in the creek, skipping rocks and rearranging the little water fall piles! I highly recommend this campground and have marked it as a future place to stay! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Super small RV park set between two creeks: with the largest sites we have seen since camping in Pigeon Forge. Our 40' motorhome and tow fit with plenty of room to spare. We had site 6 overlooking Cove Creek and the sound of the water and ducks was a nice change from the traffic noises we had at the last park in the town we stayed at. Cable TV and Wi-Fi was very good. Has nice paved roads, super-sized cement pads with fireplace. Children and our dog loved the lower grass area along the creek and even went in the creek. Made reservations to go back in the fall. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a great park! Small but has very nice space sizes, clean, with great owners/staff. This park is about 7 miles from Dollywood, which was great as you are out in the country and away from all the Pigeon Forge congestion. There are no community (campground) amenities, i.e., laundry, showers, etc., but being self contained we wouldn't have used them anyway. Being out in the country was fantastic, and Walden Creek running through the property was really nice. We would definitely stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great new park. Camped in site 6 next to the water. Level and had plenty of shade. No noise except for all of the birds. Great!! I would come back again. Close to the main drag, yet far enough away to be in the country without all the noise. Also good to get into the Smoky park from the less traveled entrance. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A gem of a new park in the Pigeon Forge/Sevierville area. Located 4 miles from "the parkway" so it's near, but out in a little valley between two creeks. It's quiet, it's pretty, it's going to be a winner. Really like the setting and it's our new campground of choice when we visit the land of traffic. Great job by a young couple building and operating the park. WiFi worked well, just be careful on Little Valley Road, it's fine for a forty-footer + tow, but a little narrow. We made reservations for a return visit before we left. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is fairly new. Just a really nice, quiet place to stay. Has paved roads, gravel driveway, and large concrete patio. Some sites have complete outdoor kitchens. We stayed in a standard streamside site. There is plenty of room between sites. Some sites have trees. It's very pet friendly. Has a nice camp store. Away from traffic and busy Pigeon Forge, but close enough to get there with little trouble. Just off of Wears Valley road. Owners were very friendly. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground has spoiled us for any others. The sites were spacious and very well maintained. Lots of grass and trees. Concrete pads and picnic tables were complemented by free standing fireplaces or outdoor kitchens in some sites. All we heard were the crickets and the creek behind us. The absence of a bathhouse or pool didn't bother us. We enjoyed the peace and quiet. We'll be back soon! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is much better than most of the other facilities in the area, but lacks in some areas. There are no on site restrooms or pool which is a trade off for the quasi remote location, however there is other structures in the area, on the water side that greatly detract from it's beauty and is not shown in it's advertisement. I think next time I will go closer to Townsend. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful site and friendly folks running the place! Our site had the creek running behind it and a stacked stone fireplace on the cement patio! We really enjoyed the fireplace on the cool evenings while we were there. It was so nice! It was wet so that made getting onto the site a little difficult. The host came with his bobcat and fixed the driveway and road. No bath house or laundry although it is coming soon! I would stay here again for sure! It is conveniently located without being in the middle of things. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a little hidden bit of heaven. You won't be sorry you came here. It is "Not too far out, nor too close in." The owners were very nice and helpful. They even came by and swept the leaves from our table. Oh my: the leaves and the stream behind our camper just made this place even more awesome! We met the nicest of neighbors, which all gave us a lot of helpful tips for newbie travel-trailers campers. Can't wait to go again! We will be back next year! Bathrooms: I heard they were coming later so I can't review about that. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Up the Creek RV Camp is just awesome. The greatest host & hostess that we have ever met. Our visit there was the most pleasant visit that we ever had to any camping area. Peaceful, quiet and just a little of heaven on this earth. We highly recommend this campground to anyone who plans a visit to this are. This deserves a 5 star rating!! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
As soon as we entered the camp we had the feeling that we were in the right place, and after being greeted and registered by the owners our feelings were confirmed! We were escorted to our site and offered any help needed onto our beautiful site. There is not much that I can add to previous reviews, but I do agree with their posts without hesitation. Although they do not yet have a bathhouse/laundry, we were assured that it is in the plan for 2010. The roads are now gravel and were a little messy due to all the rain we had while there, but they were tended to every day and paving equipment was delivered and in place to begin paving as soon as the weather allowed. It is very clear that much thought went into planning this park, and it is foremost in the minds of the owners that everyone has a pleasant stay with them. We can't wait to go again! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We found this wonderful campground by accident. The usual campground we stay at had water problems when we came into town and could not honor our reservations. They recommended Up The Creek. What a pleasant surprise! It looks brand new, run by a real nice young couple, and has a beautiful, quiet, country setting. (It's about two miles from all the Pigeon Forge traffic noise.) We had site six. It looked to be at least 50' by 100'. (We camped in Pigeon Forge before, and this is really a big site for the area.) We could see and hear the creek from our patio, which was a nice added treat. Good wifi; didn't use the cable so we can't rate it. The roads were nice and wide getting in and out. We'll camp here again and stay longer next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is a gem! It is located less than 10 minutes from all of the activities in Pigeon Forge but it is set on a quiet country road with almost no traffic. It was a treat for us because since we own a big rig we are not often able to camp along a beautiful creek and hear nothing but the creek, the birds and the crickets! We even slept with the windows open, it was great! The access to the park is easy, the sites are very large, long and wide, mostly back in. Interior roads and parking is gravel and each site has a huge concrete with inlaid stone patio, picnic table and fire ring. All sites were full hookups. Great W-Fi and cable TV. The owners of the park were friendly and helpful, stopping by after we were all settled to see if we needed anything and suggested areas of Smokey Mountain National Park that we should see and the best way to get there, avoiding the traffic. Landscaping is very nice with lots of grassy area between sites as well as around the park. The park is dog friendly, our shelties enjoyed their walk every morning along the creek. I should note that the bath house and laundry facilities are not complete yet. Since we always use our own shower and laundry on board it was not a problem for us. I wish we could have stayed at this wonderful park longer and I am sure we will return on our next trip to the Smoky Mountains. If I could give this park more than a 10, I would! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff at this small park was very friendly and helpful. The main circle is paved with level gravel sites. Each site has a concrete pad with picnic table. The sites are all back-in and very close to each other both on the sides and end to end. The bath house was very clean and well equipped. Great location for visiting Pigeon Forge and surrounding attractions. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our second time at this campground and for us it is a nice small campground. The owners are friendly and helpful. The campground is small and some spaces are tight for big rigs but I haven't had a problem with my 35' motor home and have seen quite a few big 5th wheels come and go with no issues. The only issues are the Wi-Fi is pretty sporadic but other than that it is a nice campground and also there is a trolley stop at the entrance. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We decided on short notice that we would go Pigeon Forge for the Rod Run and a long weekend. We found a few campgrounds with openings that would accommodate our 40+ ft motorhome. We picked Waldens Creek because when we called we were told they had two spots available, and they would put us in the second spot on the left as you enter the campground (can't remember the number). We were happy with that and made the reservation. When we arrived the spot was taken, and we were given a spot in the middle row which we barely fit in. We actually had to go over the line on the site behind us and we were still right at the edge of the circle driveway. We told the lady at the front desk we were given the other site when we called to make the reservation, and she replied, "We DO NOT assign spots." We told her we had other campgrounds where we could have stayed, but we decided on this one because of the site we were given. Her response was, "Well, why didn't you go to one of them." The internet was horrible. Half of the time you couldn't connect, or the signal was so poor you couldn't do anything. The water pressure was awful; anytime we used water we had to turn the motorhome pump on. Overall, bad experience. This was one of the worst trips we have been on since purchasing our motorhome. The site was so tight that we couldn’t even open our awning without hitting the camper beside us. We won't be going back. Disappointed in SC. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price reflects our Passport America. We stayed 4 nights here and although it is small, we got a site that fit our 40 foot motorhome and our car. Office personnel are very helpful. Sites were well maintained. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our first stay here at Walden's Creek. We had a very enjoyable stay. The yards were clean and well kept. We did not use the bathhouse. The folks at the front office were extremely friendly and helpful, even helped us to park our fifth wheel. It is a very close parking community. So be prepared to have some folks move cars on your way in or out. It was still very nice and we will return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is Passport America. Sites are indeed very short for big rigs and all sites are very close together. My RV is only 23 feet so that was not a problem. But, we were disappointed that in the 4 days we were there the bathrooms were not cleaned even once. The owners are very friendly and seem to know a few of the other campers very well, I assume they are long term, the owners spend a lot of time sitting and conversing and not much time maintaining. There are many others parks very close by that might be worth trying. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Small private park on Waldens Creek. Only tent sites are on creek, Park is very crowded and has tight turns. We damaged the side of our 34 foot fifth wheel on one of the turns. One row of back in sites back up to Henderson Road. The wood fence helps block the noise. We did not hear any loud vehicles. Park is conveniently located to attractions at Pigeon Forge and has local trolly stop at main entrance. Easy drive to Cades Cove, or just a drive through the Smoky Mountains. Would we stay there again? No. There are many other RV Parks in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate reflects Passport America, we stayed here 5 nights.This CG is a good base camp for the many things to see & do in the area, you are pretty close to your neighbor. We backed to the road which could be a bit noisy. Staff/owner is very friendly. We'd stay here again but request the other side of the CG in order to avoid the road noise. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I now know how a sardine feels. Sites are entirely too small. Perimeter sites are perpendicular parking and if you don't have someone to guide you it could be a problem. The interior road is all to pieces and the internet is as slow as dial-up if you get it up at all. The Passport America ad does not tell all the restrictions but you will find out when you check in. I was thankful that I had my own bath and toilet. We will not stay here again. There are too many other parks in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Sites were small and close together but level and had concrete pad with picnic table or table and chairs. No facilities other than restroom/showers and laundry room, which were all clean. Grounds well maintained. Low Wi-Fi reception. We paid $21.50 per night for a weekly rate, added an extra night and was charged $31.50. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very tight - when someone came in we felt like they would be driving right into us. Water pressure very poor. When we called to make a reservation we were quoted a price, when we arrived price had increased over $100. We paid it only because it was a holiday weekend and we were afraid we couldn't find another park with a vacancy. We stayed a month - that's the reason for the price. Won't be staying here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Small CG easy access from Gatlinburg. Sites set up essentially in inner or outer oval. Some grass, concrete pads, picnic tables. Acceptable reception from Verizon phone, air card, and Wi-Fi. Staff great and very helpful with guiding you into your site. Clean, newer bathrooms and showers. About 50% capacity, with about half big-rigs. No pool, but much to do in the area. Price reflects Passport America discount. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found this campground via Passport America and what a great find! We planned to stay a week and stayed a month. The owner is terrific -- very friendly and accommodating. We were disconnected when we originally called but she called us back and found a spot for us even though the park with full for the holiday weekend. The park is very clean with full hookups. Very conveniently located and reasonably priced. This is now the only place we'll stay when we are in the area and we'll be sure to go out of our way to be able to stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park. Paved roads, concrete patio, good cable, good Wi-Fi. Sites are close. Park is starting to show wear, but very clean and well kept. Staff very friendly & helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a small, very tight RV park. The sites are very close to each other. The manager was wonderful: very pleasant and helpful. Water pressure was low, and internet was good. Physical facilities were very clean and in excellent condition (laundry especially). This park is close to all the attractions in Pigeon Forge and the Smokey Mountains. We would return to this park again for short stays. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for a month and the rate reflects that. The park is convenient to the strip but it is cramped. The park owner is very helpful and friendly and she is the reason we liked the park as much as we did. Sites are gravel, mostly level but some are uneven due to the weight of big rigs. Laundry facilities are on site and they work well. Wi-Fi was good with about 95% up time. Restrooms and showers were generally clean but could be cleaned much better. Electricity and water pressure were both fine the whole time, even when the park was full. She really needs a workamper to help her but she got burned by one so refuses to do that any more. Overall, we enjoyed our stay here and will certainly stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The lady who runs this park, bends over backwards to help her visitors. She runs this campground by herself and manages to get everything clean and keep it working 100%. We were very impressed and this is a Passport America park. The sites are close together and the small park is crowded but all of the parks in this area are. Utilities were great and free Wi-Fi and cable top it off for only 16.00 per night. A stream runs right behind the camp and features fishing and duck feeding. The hostess makes this park great. It would get a 10 if there was just a wee bit more room. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park's location was very convenient for visiting Pigeon Forge. Both cable and Wi-Fi were excellent. The streets need to be repaired some, and my site was barely level enough. The staff was very friendly. Don't get that first site at the entrance of the park: every car, truck, motorhome, etc. will shine their lights on your rig when entering and their passage will be quite noticeable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Friendly & accommodating staff, clean laundry facility with 3 washer & dryers, iron & ironing board. Nice deck with picnic tables outside the laundry room, overlooks stream. Concrete patios with picnic tables at each site, small shade trees. Good Wi-Fi service. Trolley stops frequently to transport to entertainment areas & shops. Enjoyable stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nicely paved interior road. Level gravel (river rock) sites. Clean 50 amp power. Adequate but not terrific water pressure (measured 35 psi). Owner is very friendly. We'll be here 7.5 months, so I may update this review. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place was a joke. Except for the low price, I would not recommend. It was noisy, owner was rude, sites are to close together, there was only one bathroom and shower for ladies bath house, and there was no toliet paper! We will not be staying here again . Next time we will probably stay next door at Creekside Rv Park and pay the extra 4.00. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Small and sites very close together, but that is expected in a new park in a very busy area. Owner, will do whatever he can to make the stay good. Close to attractions, cable & wifi excellent. No shop. Laundry and amenities very clean. Trash can at every site and collected daily. Not the biggest and most spacious site, but friendly atmosphere. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fairly noisy as located next to busy road. Owner advertised sites as 'concrete pad' but the pad is a small one beside your RV, not to park on! Concrete pad to me means that is where you will park your RV. Sites are large gravel that is not packed at all which means that you will have huge ruts where your tires are. Very difficult to level and very difficult to drive in. Road inside park is paved. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Owner/Manager was unfriendly. Spaces were VERY close together. It was noisy at night. There is only one shower and one bathroom for women and for men. RV spaces were muddy. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 7 / 10 ]
This is a new campground in Pigeon Forge. It is located next door to Creekside Campground. The sites are gravel with concrete pads. There is no shade yet. The owner has planted lots of trees so one day there will be shade. Nice views of Waldens Creek. Bottom line, nothing spectacular but the price is right and you are right in the middle of Pigeon Forge. Wi-Fi worked great too! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
