This is a hidden gem, clean, beautiful landscape, friendly gatherings in beautiful shelter plus the most helpful, hardworking camp hosts we have ever encountered, they have been so helpful to everyone, from answering questions to helping with mechanical problems. This is definitely a 10. We camped at Franklin RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.
This is undoubtedly the prettiest park we have visited--small but flowers and extra touches everywhere. We were in a back-in space in back section which is well shaded all day. Pad was mulch, which was soft and drained well when it rained but may not be so great if site is not level. Hosts were fantastic--friendly, helpful, and even had campfires in evenings in pavilion. Park has large pull-through gravel sites up front, which are full sun, but easy for big rigs. We camped at Franklin RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.
We made arrangements over the phone earlier in the day that we stayed. The camp hosts could not have been nicer. They made the reservations for me over the phone earlier in the day and when we arrived late in the afternoon they were both there to welcome us and get us situated, even providing ice for our Happy Hour cocktails. Later in the evening we joined them at the camp pavilion where they had a nice fire in the fireplace and we relaxed with good conversation. This is a small, but outstanding campground, on a secondary highway which is quiet at night in the midst of beautiful mountain country. We camped at Franklin RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Near Franklin and in the midst of beautiful mountain country of the Smokies.
This may be the prettiest park we have stayed in so far! The park is small, but very nicely laid out and landscaped. There are a couple of large pull-throughs near the front of the park. We stayed in the back of the park. Our site backed up to a nice meadow with plenty of trees. The sites are large, some close together (for groups) and some set apart (what we wanted). The pads are wood chips, which are soft to walk on. There is a great covered pavilion with rocking chairs, tables, games and a fireplace. The bathrooms were clean, modern, and were nicely decorated, also. We didn't notice any road noise, although the park is convenient to US 23/441. Note that the signs from the highway and the turn are not very clearly marked. We will definitely stay here next time we visit Franklin and Highlands.

Wonderful, friendly park just off the highway, but quiet enough. Large park, small sites that are level with wood chips on road base. Wi-Fi was weak, but Verizon signal was strong. Cable was good. As mentioned, 50/30/110@20, water (tastes great too!), septic, cable. Tends to fill up on weekends, so reservations are a must. Franklin, NC is a nice sized town with all amenities and mountains, rivers, waterfalls, biking trails, hiking trails,etc. Great fall color!

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights and had a great experience. The campground is extremely clean and well kept. The camp hosts are very friendly and helpful. The only two drawbacks were some tight spaces for large RVs and road noise. We stopped at other campgrounds in the area and this is definitely the nicest we found. We camped at Franklin RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for 1-1/2 weeks. Beautiful and well-maintained park; staff extremely helpful and friendly. Love the surrounding area. Entrance is steep but short so getting up to the office is easy. Recommend pulling around the office to unhook your toad. Will definitely visit this park again. We camped at Franklin RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

This is the 3rd time we have been here. One of our favorite places to camp. We liked it so much we stayed 2 months. Camp hosts were friendly and helpful as were the camp owners. The place was clean and the bathrooms were great. We plan on coming back this summer! We camped at Franklin RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice quiet park with a beautiful shelter for campers to gather. We travel with a dog, and there is a wonderful mowed open park-like field for him to run, plus no dog waste to watch out for. Very clean, nicest park in the area. We will stay 2 weeks.

We did not like this campground at all. It was dirty, and noisy from the highway. They have no propane, pool, laundry, campstore or nice people working there. I like Franklin NC, I don't like this campground! We camped at Franklin RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is ok if you want to stay inside your camper. There is not much room for outside living. The ticks are horrible. You can hear traffic all day and night from the highway and the neighbors across the street are rude and loud. We like Franklin, just not this RV park. You are parked in a field. They have no pool, laundry, playground or campstore. I guess it is a nice place if you only stay a night or two and you're out sightseeing all day. We found better parks in the area and will go to one of those next year. We have travelled all over the USA, and stayed in nice parks, this is not one of them.

We have just spent 3 days at Franklin RV Park. It was perfect for us, a great location situated between Franklin, Dillard, and the Highlands which provided plenty of sightseeing, shopping, and good restaurants. The campground is small, beautifully maintained, the bathrooms and showers spotless, the hosts could not have been more friendly and helpful. We had one of the pull thrus for our 37' class A motorhome. The campground has a common area with a big beautiful fireplace that was lit for campers to congregate and socialize. We really enjoyed our stay at this campground and look forward to coming back when they reopen in the spring. We camped at Franklin RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is quiet (although you can hear cars), clean and the hosts are great. A lot of attention to detail here in the landscaping, bathhouse and pavilion. We were lucky that the campground wasn't crowded - the sites are very close together. We didn't have anyone next to us fortunately. While sites are very level and wide enough to accommodate slides, there is not a lot of space to hang out on the campsite. All sites do have fire pits and picnic tables. Rated an 8 just because we like more wooded spacious sites. But honestly, this is the nicest full hookup campground in the area - we looked at them all.

This is beautiful park to spend some relaxing time in, and the grounds are beautiful. For a fall trip the leaves will be spectacular. The managers were friendly, nice to visit with and concerned about our comfort. There are many things to do in the area and there are some great restaurants to visit. We definitely would visit here again. We camped at Franklin RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.
We stayed here July 5th through the 13th. We gave this campground a 10 because it was exactly what we wanted. The park was quiet and clean, and the landscaping was beautiful. The owners/managers were very friendly and helpful. We drove to other campgrounds in the area and we were glad that we picked Franklin RV park, we would definitely stay there again.
