What a poor value. First the campground is mostly dirt. Very little grass to be found. The roads in the campground are full of holes and are mostly first. When it rains so it did yesterday they turn to mud. At $40 per night a totally overpriced campground. It was hard to know where your campsite ended and another one started. - GLL

This park was in a great location. Walking distance to downtown Hot Springs and the spa. The Appalachian Trail goes through the town and along the river, so I was able to accomplish a goal by "hiking" the AP. The bathhouses were minimal, but not a problem since there were sewer hookups. Great little town and beautiful location so we would probably stay here again. - ebshaw

Very nice park along the river: quiet and restful. Hiked way back in the campground along the river. Good place to eat: Iron Rail. There is a very neat Craft Gallery next door. Not much else, but relaxation in the Hot Springs across the road. Campground is very clean. Love to come here as much as possible, especially in the winter to enjoy the tubs. - Wren

The camp ground is well established with trees but the buildings have not ben updated in years. Looks dated. Great for kids and has friendly campers who maintain their individual sites year round. - vols_24

We visited this campground in late April. The bathrooms were below par. We stayed for a week, and the staff did very little to maintain the bathrooms during the week. Showers were below average. Sites were mostly rock with very little shade, not very level. The staff people were nice though, and willing to help out when asked. - dschwark

Nice park... But not close to the interstate; it was a long drive to get there. - Bullardbill

This is a fairly remote campground located right at the base of the Appalachian Mountains 12 miles east of Greeneville, Tn. There are no pull through sites, however most of the sites are large, have shade, and a beautiful view. There is a fishing pond that is open to campers. Managers/owners are very friendly and helpful. This park is a "destination park"; it is too remote from the interstate for an overnight stay. The only negative is the narrow winding roads to get there and are truly a pain requiring slow speeds and caution on the curves. We have a 36 foot 5th wheel and it was very scary at times meeting traffic. There is cable available, but only in one section that is taken up by "long stay" campers. Overall a very good campground that deserves a 10 but we had to give an 8 for a lack of cable to all sites and the narrow winding roads. We would stay again. - sweetandlocker

Well this is a tough review to do. Without a doubt, the one thing that makes this park special is the **spectacular** location along the expansive, beautiful French Broad River. The sound of the river was so peaceful and there were ducks and geese with their ducklings there. We'd wake up each morning and see the sun sparkling off the water with the uncomparable sounds of the river running over the rocks.
**However**, then you turn around and see the rest. The sites are very close together. The cabins are tired looking. We were happy to find that for two consecutive nights we had two different cool Millennial couples next to us. (I'm an X'er and we seem to only run into Boomers at the parks. Love the Boomers but nice to see some younger folks camping out!). Hung out with each couple in our shared inter-site space with fires going, relaxing, enjoying the local craft beers, good conversation.
There were some questionable looking people hanging around but turned out to be nice. I didn't use the bathrooms but heard they were run down and not very clean, so I stuck to just using our RV bathroom instead.
We found Bill (one of the owners) helpful. He assisted us with backing in and encouraged us to come find him if we needed anything. He also strictly enforced the rules (no parking on the grass, keeping all the items restricted to your own camping space, etc.). But I liked the rule enforcement, made me feel safe.
The place would greatly benefit from a makeover. It has a commune feel to it. - GearDown

We stayed at FBRC for 2 nights, us and a couple friends. We wanted somewhere close to Asheville and it was close enough. The campground was OK, the bath house needed some cleaning but heck you are in a campground, you can't expect the Ritz. Hearing the train didn't bother any of us, its really not that bad.We loved being on the river, very lovely. If we need to camp near Asheville again we may just return. - Meg Hollaway

This park was adequate. We were disappointed when first arriving due to unkempt and aging status. We did enjoy cooling off with a drink in our chairs in middle of river. Could be much nicer if utilities and sites updated. Manager/owner ? Friendly. - pwdorris

Campground is set in a river valley farm and has riverfront sites. However, these sites are occupied by "permanent" campers with a waiting list and are angled back in sites. Most all other sites are parallel to the roadways. Sites are roomy enough with most having some shade. Only a few sites have 50A service. Campground roads are not paved but are easy to maneuver. Campground is about 10 miles off I-81 located about 20 miles from Morristown, Greenville and Newport. No nearby shopping. Swimming pool and picnic shelter are nice. Owners are friendly and helpful. We would stay again only for 1 to 3 nights, but not a destination stay of one week or more. - igor2brvn

We loved this park! Sad thing was its off exit 15 and no signs showing how to get there! its out in the middle of the smokey mountains.. We love it here.. wonderful place.. its so peaceful.. Only bad thing is if you have any cell phone service other then Verizon you won't have cell phone service.. I myself have AT&T and it said "no service". My hubby has Verizon and he had service.. Its about 9 miles off I-81 and is a great RV park... I will come again! so glad i have Verizon for broadband internet! - trvlnfmly99

Reservations are required. The road to the campground includes a narrow, steep, winding and exposed section of a couple of miles of gravel road over a mountain. Large RVs and large trailers might find it difficult. There is no electricity, water, or sewer hookups at the sites. There are flush toilets and cold water sinks but no showers. The sites in the center of the loop have little privacy. The sites on the outside of the loop have somewhat more privacy. The campground is along side Cattaloochee Creek. - Teardrop11

This campground has become very popular in recent years due to the elk herd in the nearby fields. This campground does not have a dump station or shower house. It does have a small bathroom facility with flush toilets and a small sink to dump gray water. There are a few potable water spigots located throughout the campground. - Lance-a-Lot

The road to this park is one lane winding rough and not easy in a car or with a big rig motor home! 5 sites have a beautiful view, but the others only view trees so you miss the view of the other mountains and the valley. I WOULD NOT advise this for big rigs. Our tow stuck out and we parked as closely as we could. Most other vechicles were obstructing traffic. - Jimjul

Beautiful rv park that offers stunning views and in close proximity of all that Asheville offers. This relatively small campground classifies its sites as either premium or deluxe. The deluxe sites offer shaded sites with filtered views of the French broad River valley and distant mountains. The premium sites have tremendous, unobstructed views of the river and mountains but are not very shaded. Both types are full hookup. The gravel road up to the campground is a little narrow and a little steep in spots but I had no issue pulling our 31 foot travel trailer up or down. The sites are all fairly level and have a fire ring and picnic table. The campground also has some decent trails to explore. - Denver James

This park is absolutely gorgeous! It is quiet and peaceful. The sites are huge and far apart. They are slanted in such a way that they give you maximum privacy. The premium sites have a gorgeous view of the valley and mountains. And, if you have a regular site in the trees, they have a nice viewing area with benches where you can relax and watch the sun set. The bathrooms were individual bathrooms with a toilet and shower in each. The tent sites were secluded and in the trees. There are not a lot of kids screaming and running around like at a KOA because there is not a lot of kid things to do but this makes it perfect for people like my husband and I who want the peace and quiet to enjoy nature. The only problem with this campground is that it is up a mountain and maneuvering a big rig can be difficult at times. There is about a 1/2 mile curvy, bumpy, narrow, gravel road leading into the campground and backing into a few of the sites was pretty tight. If you have a big rig (especially a fifth wheel), I would avoid spots P8 and D9-13. We had site P8 and, although it was (in my opinion) the best site in the park, parking was extremely difficult due to the narrow road with a drop off on the far side. Don't get me wrong, there were plenty of big rigs up there. Just be aware that that maneuvering can be tight. This is not the place to be if you are not confident of you RV driving skills. Other than the roads, this park is my ideal RV park and I highly recommend it. - AgilityCardiMom

Beautiful campground nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. The sites are a little tight, but nice. Our site backed up to a beautiful trout stream. Owner was very friendly, welcoming, and helpful. Plenty of trees all around the campground. Would recommend, and would stay again. - GrandmaLee

This campground is very quiet. It has a nice country setting. The sites are good size and most are shady. The managers are very nice and very helpful. We would recommend this campground to anyone. - VICJIM

This a border line rustic campground. We stayed here because the Foxes Den Campground (Cosby,TN) was not as convenient. Single washer/dryer. some shade and a good shot for satellite TV reception. Many nice mom-pop restaurants near by. Wonderful real country cooking. Newport,TN supplied us with a Super Walmart and other facilities plus a Catholic Church on the hill. All views of the Great Smokies were breathtaking. The park host did a nice job keeping the Campground Mowed. (Side note) the Camp Ground cat will talk and chatter up a storm, but don't get too friendly. He will become unfriendly very quickly. He spends his evenings fighting The coons. - oldcutup

Located about 1 mile off I-40 very easily accessible. Park is on nice sized Johnathan Creek. This park is roomy and kept very clean. There is a small store within the office. Propane is available. The staff couldn't be more helpful. Of all the parks in the Maggie Valley/Waynesville, NC area this is the best. It is not a resort but they do have various activities. The creekside sites are AWESOME! We spent 7 days along the creek which provided the sound of rushing water 24/7. Premium sites have a fire ring and fencing but for the money a creekside site on gravel is the best option.
There are back in sites, big rig sites, pull through sites and one site dedicated for washing your vehicle. Some sites that are not on the creek have trees and some do not. With a small fan running at night there was absolutely no noise to disturb a good nights sleep. - dc1gator

Very nice check in process - well organized, knowledgeable, informative staff. Taken to site and assisted in backing in. Sites are not very long and everyone has to park extra vehicle across the front of your site. It gets a bit tight when sites are full. Sites are both shaded and unshaded and close together like so many commercial parks. It looked like there were nice sites along the creek (Premium) that might have more privacy in the back. It was busy and crowded. Gravel with picnic table, pretty level, utilities worked well - water pressure is high so be careful of your connections. Lots of rules which not everyone paid attention to. Laundry was too busy to be able to use on the weekend so I can't comment on that - except that having more machines or all machines in working order would be helpful. Wi-Fi was strong and fast. Lots of cable TV stations, but it was "noisy". Satellite was better. Several dumpsters around so you didn't have to walk too far. We would come back for a night or two. - SerenityRVing

My wife and I stayed at Creekwood Farm for 5 days over the July 4 weekend.
This is not a bad campground. My wife and I much prefer national parks and state run campgrounds because they typically have more room. But we don't mind staying occasionally at private campgrounds. Creekwood is a very prime example of why we have problems with private campgrounds. If we had been given the option to not be in the middle of the party all day on Saturday and also have to not have traffic through our campsite the entire weekend it might have been more pleasant.
When I called and made the appointment I asked for a creek side site. The lady said they had one creek side site left and I reserved it. Nothing but a blatant lie. The site they gave us was site number 75. It IS NOT on the creek even though their VERY misleading site map shows it on the creek. Not only that, #75 is not a premium site. It is smaller and the utilities are misplaced toward the front so I couldn't back the motor home into the site so I had room for the toad.
So this "premium" side it nestled in between the last REAL premium site and one of their permanent cabins. Right behind side 75 and the cabin is their recreation area. They had a big cookout on Saturday. That was cool, but when I arrived I found a hose hooked up to our water spigot. It ran out the end of the site. I figured they were using it to water the grass so I unhooked it and did my hookups. The next morning someone had installed a "Y" and hooked that hose back up. We had to compete with their party for water pressure. And guess where everyone in the campground walked, or drove their golf carts, through to get to the picnic? Yes, site #75. And not a word about any of this when I made reservations. We were totally misled. And they didn't mention that you had to rent a fire pit if you wanted a campfire. How ridiculous!!!
We won't be back. - Glenn & Becky Puckett
