Initial impression was excellent. After prompt checkin, staff escorted us to our site. He assisted with the backing and gave us orientation of the site. Excellent service. Garbage pickup is provided if you leave it out around 9AM. There are 3 bathrooms on the top level and 1 bathroom on the bottom level. Each of those bathrooms are private style. You lock the door and it is yours until you are done. Sink,toilet,and shower. Very clean, like in a hotel. I am not kidding. Only thing that they don't allow is campers that are not fully contained. I didn't fully understand that definition when i checked in. I later learned that to qualify as "fully contained" means that your camper needs to have plumbing, meaning toilet/shower/kitchen sink. My camper does not have a toilet or even a sink. I did not install it not wanting to keep the camper simple. So, I am not sure now that I can go back to that campground, knowing that I will be going against their rule. My wife and I did fully enjoy the place. We camped at The Great Outdoors RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Park is beautiful. All sites are back in but not a problem to get in to. Clubhouse is one of the best I have seen, with two working kitchens available. Sites are gravel and level. I did not see one RV with tires off the ground. Plenty of staff around and even someone to help you plan your stay and give you info on all the activities going on during your time in Franklin. I will return and I encourage clubs looking for a club friendly park to visit Great Outdoors. We camped at The Great Outdoors RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This campground was very nice and staff was extremely helpful. They drove us to the site and directed us for backing in, I didn't even have to get out of the coach! A friend was arriving later than us, and they were not able to get level in the site next to us, the campground quickly gave them the option of changing to a nearby campsite and gave them several options. We would stay there again when in the area. We camped at The Great Outdoors RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a first class CG. I would like to have given it a 10, but there are a couple of cons that prevent that. The Wi-Fi is wimpy, often barely working. A few of the sites are pretty narrow and another few are not level. Otherwise the CG is a clear 10. The pool was spotless and warm, 83 degrees. Very little road noise. The sites are going to be reworked to improve them and level them. The staff is first class. The one who directed us to our site is a great guy. He seemed to know every guest by name. Entering the CG is a bit challenging. The drive is very steep, but easily manageable if you take your time. Yep, we will be here again, sometime in the spring. Do yourself a favor and book reservations there. We camped at The Great Outdoors RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice park with a spotless shower and bath. The staff is great and helpful. We have stayed here many times in previous years and will be back again. Reasonable rates for a very clean campground. We camped at The Great Outdoors RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We recently stayed at this park while attending an RV rally. The park is beautiful with nice views of the Smoky Mountains. The staff of many workampers bend over backwards to attend to your every need. The pool was nicely heated and we swam in it several times. We would definitely stay here again. Our rate was the rally rate. We camped at The Great Outdoors RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is wonderful RV resort. Very friendly, helpful, and considerate staff. The resort is located in the Mountains near Franklin, N.C. and close to a verity of attractions. The resort offers a pool, exercise room, laundry, and clean showers and restrooms. Lots of activities are offered to the RVers, cable TV, and extremely good Wi-Fi. I recommend this resort to anyone for a few days or a few months stay. We camped at The Great Outdoors RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Great campground. Exercise room was nice. Pool was nice. Weekly activities, pot lucks, desert nights, ice cream socials, campfires. Great staff (work campers). Close to many activities: golf, greenway walking trail, casino (Cherokee), Smokey Mountains, Smokey Mountain Performing Arts Center. Great mountain views. WiFi was poor but the owner added 100 MB/sec service and it now flies. Nice monthly and extended stay rates. We spent 5 months here and will be back in the future.

The nightly rate based on one month stay. Friendly staff. Grounds are kept up very nicely. Not all sites are level. Sites are all gravel and back in. If your site backs up to Hwy 441 bypass, the traffic noise is non stop and loud. We camped at The Great Outdoors RV Resort in a Motorhome.

There is much to like about this RV park: it is a modern facility, exceptionally clean, close to Franklin, and the staff, mostly seasonal workampers, are incredible! But, it is on a bare hillside and suffers from sites that are too close together. Most sites have very little useable area adjacent to the parking pads -- on ours, we had to place the picnic table and chairs right next to the coach, almost touching, due to the slope. There are no trees. Worst of all, the Wi-Fi is terrible: e.g., over the course of a week I was never able to get access to G-maps to help plan our local excursions. Would we stay there again? Not likely. We camped at The Great Outdoors RV Resort in a Motorhome.

I cannot say enough good about this park and our camping experience there. We have camped for 45 years. They called us to verify when we would be arriving on the afternoon of our first night's stay. Someone was waiting for us ( no packet on the door!) We were escorted to a clean and open site. While my husband was assited with set up, they invited us to share with their Father's Day Dinner in the community room. A welcome thing for weary travelers. The rest rooms/showers are elegant. The pool is clean and heated when necessary. The WiFi, electric,water,sewer, and cable all worked excellently. They provided a map of the area. They also included a nice tv channel guide and a listing of area stores, hospitals, clinics, vets, and restaurants. Everyone was so friendly and outgoing ! We will definitely be camping here again. No cons! We camped at The Great Outdoors RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very well kept. Extremely clean facilities, especially restrooms. Friendly staff. Great pool. Lots of CG-sponsored events at no charge. I would give this CG a "10" if the Wi-Fi were better--it varies from unavailable to good. We camped at The Great Outdoors RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We arrived at this park late April intending to stay for a month. The park is so nice, and there is so much to see in the area that we extended for the 3 month special rate. The park is maintained in excellent condition. The owners are constantly sponsoring events such as dinners and movies to make the stay enjoyable. The work campers are all friendly. The rate I quoted reflects the 3 month rate. We camped at The Great Outdoors RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very nice park, which the owners are diligently working to further improve. Pool, restrooms/showers, and clubhouse are extremely clean and well maintained. Laundromat and restrooms were superb. The sites are close together and trees have not grown large enough to provide shade. Our gravel site was almost level. Propane refill was quick. As the landscaping matures this has potential to be a beautiful park. Owners and staff are friendly and attentive. We enjoyed our stay and are recommending it as a future rally site for our camping club. We camped at The Great Outdoors RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
