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

A beautiful park with a beautiful view of the mountains and river below. Happily we did not have to go up the hill in a big rig, but no problem with our travel trailer. We could have used an extra 5 feet of sewer hose to permit us to fit the site better but we were OK with that. We would definitely stay here again. - 1coloradan

Pad site was unlevel, had to do a major adjust side to side. Dump station is located and installed backwards going the wrong way on road. No gravel but mud beside the station and the water connection to backwash the black tank had a nozzle that matched or hooked up to nothing. - MichaelRay

The office staff was so friendly and helpful that I hate to give a bad review but this was possibly the worst campground we have ever been in. It is right next to the interstate and is, by far, the noisiest we have ever stayed in and we've stayed at many campgrounds near busy interstates. The interior roads are not really big rig friendly but they are doable. However, when exiting, RVs have to go both ways and there isn't room to pass so you have to hope you're the only exiting at that time. Sites are gravel and dirt, a bit messy when it rains. One tree at our site needed trimming. We would have had to back out of the site so we wouldn't scratch the side and top of the rig. Fortunately, The rig across from us pulled out and we were able to pull through that site, then make the tight exit turn. We will not return. - dickens

This came up as a Good Sam recommendation - three 9's.
I have read the reviews and do not understand...
The site is on top of I-40 highway, very noisy.
The sites are very small, on top of your neighbors and a heavy slant.
Compared to many of the KOAs that we have stayed at - roughly all around, less facilities for the kids. - BettieFordonTour

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

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

Wonderful, quiet. Great staff. Loved site. Baths are wonderful, private.
Was good for overnight. If we had known how wonderful this campground was, would have planned to stay longer. It is wonderful, quiet, lovely.
Will be back. - ToniB

Overall a nice campground about a mile off Interstate 40. Easy entrance and exit. The place had a friendly vibe - mostly adults and pretty social. They advertise pull-through sites - which are actually two sites back to back. They are only pull through if no one is in the other site otherwise you have to back in. What is really strange is the placement utilities. In almost every situation - if all spaces are full - your door will be about 5 feet from your neighbor's sewer connection. Not an issue when we were there but the spaces by our door was vacant the whole time. I am generally a "rules" person but there seemed to be an overwhelming number of rules and posted signs with rules. Not a problem but just different. Nice stream runs through the back of the property. There is a wood/tree processing facility across the street - in the early hours you can definitely hear the plant. Not a big deal but not exactly peaceful either. I would stay here again - it is about 5-7 miles to any number of restaurants or stores. Office people were helpful. After we were there for 3 days they decided we were not far enough forward in our pull-through space - so we had to disconnect, take in slides etc and move 10 feet forward. We were apparently using the wrong sewer connection. Kind of a pain as we ere leaving first thing the next morning. All in all - we would sty here again. - Zoey and Reba

I've been coming here every October since 1998 when it was under the old name Fox Den - this place is & has always been GREAT! Nothing fancy - no arcade for the kiddies or fancy amenities, but the owner & his son couldn't be nicer or more fun to be around. There's usually a couple people who come & go and they're always nice, too. It's close to everything! Yet far enough away from it all to truly relax and enjoy. You can choose between 4 hiking trails (1 to a waterfall & 2 to the A.T.) without even having to drive! The sites are level, the bathrooms are clean, the firewood is dry, plus they sell ice and just about everything else you may need and then some. If you're more interested in your TV reception than being at one with nature, you may want the KOA closer to Gatlinburg, but if you want to sit by the stream, enjoy the forest, stargaze, hear your campfire crackle, or go "jaw with the fellers" in the general store, this is the place to be! - SilverJ

Previous posts giving this place a 9 must have been made by the owner’s mother and grandmother. It’s nowhere close to being a 9. Gravel interior roads and grassy sites. Hookups are adequate. I checked them out and would not use the laundry or bath/shower. I don’t have kids and I am in the area to explore, thus I’m gone early and return in time to cook dinner. Posh parks with lots of amenities are wasted on me. This place with its lower cost serves my purpose. Staff is very helpful and Wi-Fi is good. Convenient to I-40 and Gatlinburg without being in the midst of the chaos. I would stay here again under the same circumstances. - plove

This is a delightful small park - very quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed nearby places and ate at the Apple House. YUM! YUM! We will certainly stop by Cosby Ranch if in the area. It is easy to find on State Route 32. It's a little off the beaten path, but worth the effort. - john rv

What a delightful place but not for the faint of heart if you have a really big rig. Be sure to follow the driving directions from the website so you will miss all the congestion in Gatlinburg. There are several places for big rigs and the owner is an expert in getting you maneuvered into your spot. Once you are in you can hear the water from two creeks and the wind through the many trees on the property. Great cable TV and Internet. We will come again. - Bev&Dick

We camped here for a week while we visited the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area. The owners were very personable, helpful, and friendly. It is very clean and well maintained. We had a stream-side site which we loved. There was a movie every night for the kids, small ice cream parlor, game room, and store with some basics. As stated, it is about 15 miles from downtown Gatlinburg, but we knew that when we booked and were happy with that. It's close to zip lining and white water rafting. We would definitely stay here again. - RVingMama

Excellent family campground. It would have received 10 stars if it wasn't 30 minutes from the entrance to the Smokies. The campground is crushed gravel which seemed odd until a couple of days into our week long stay and I realized that our camper was the cleanest it had ever been, no dirt, no sand. Fantastic. The stream side site was wonderful. Owners were very friendly and helpful, gave us a menu when we wanted to order out pizza. The playground is great and with the campground being on the small side, it was easy to get to the laundry room (which had plenty of washers/dryers). They do advertise that you can hike into the Smokies from the campground, but this is quite misleading; it isn't as easy as it seems and is nearly impossible for anyone under age 10 because the bridge is out and you have to rock hop. - michigansandzilla

This park was ok for an overnight. However as many other reviews have mentioned there are alot of trailers and run down campers in this park. We had a pull through that was just barely long enough but it worked. The hookups were good no issues. Pool was closed as chemicals were just added but looked nice enough. Road into park was narrow and dicey and sites were very tight. We would look for other options next time, although not many in this immediate area. - Harlee79

As many other reviewers posted, this was a one night stay on a trip to another destination. First, the staff was very friendly and accommodating when we arrived. The bathrooms were clean and pool area looked decent. However, this was overshadowed by the overall hillbilly atmosphere of this campground. There were numerous rundown campers and several random pieces of construction equipment stored throughout the campground. The campground is also surrounded by sketchy mobile homes and is very close to the highway. We would not stay here again. - thor4

We stayed in a creekfront site. IMHO it was a bargain at the Passport America rate. Our site was long enough for our RV, but the toad had to park alongside (for which there was room). We could deploy 4 slides without feeling cramped. Utilities were good, except for wifi, which was weak and intermittent at our site. AT&T cell coverage (4g) was good. We had good satellite coverage, although many sites might not; however there is cable that appeared to work fine. The creek and grassy area along it are really neat for walking dogs. Most residents are "mature" and seasonal. All we met were pleasant. The pool looked inviting, although we didn't use it. It can get a little muddy when it rains. We were positively impressed, and will try to return. - Just Dave

Sites are gravel and grass with that are fairly level. Lot of shade trees. d easy to Roads were gravel. Bathrooms are very clean as well as the showers. Very good cable with plenty of selection. Wi-Fi seems to come and go depending on the time of day. Not much of a camp store. Very pretty scenery along the creek that runs on the backside of the campground. - Biggyrat

We stayed here for a week while touring the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This park is very nice and we would definitely stay here again. The roads are gravel/dirt but very smooth with few potholes. The sites are grass/dirt and level; they are rather close but have plenty of room for slide-outs and awnings. The cable TV and wi-fi worked very well. The cafe they advertise is no longer in business but is now a small store. The mini-golf course could use some TLC but it's free - just bring your own score cards. Water pressure was kind of low but adequate. The laundry was extremely nice (6 washers and dryers) with comfortable furniture in the attached lounge. They have a large pavilion which is rented out for private functions but is sound-proofed so noise is not an issue. Everything was clean and well-maintained. There was some noise from highway 276 during the day but was not noticeable at night. The large trees provided lots of shade but weren't a problem when moving our 40' rig around. - SandyA

First of all, the owner is miserable. I think its time they retire. There are several really dumpy looking trailers here with things just laying all over the place. There are 7 TV channels and they are all news except ESPN. Alot of the sites were really old looking and for this time of the year, the place was half empty. That tells me alot because other parks in the area where full. Restrooms were clean, and there is a laundry that was OK. They say they have a store, but its empty. Place is old and needs to be updated. - rvhermit

This is a perfect place for folks who want peace and quiet. The lots are shady and huge. There is a creek in back with picnic tables. I would not take my grandchildren there as it was mostly older people. But it is my favorite place to go alone with my husband. You will love this place. - ILoveLucy

This park is in a nice location, sites are very shady. Cable TV consists of 8 channels of which 2 or 3 work well enough to watch. WiFi worked well. As for the creek side sites, none of them are 50amp and most are taken by seasonal campers. Lots of Floridians nesting here. Park was neat in appearance. The biggest negative was the owners themselves and all there pesky rules posted all over the campground. Avoid the owners and enjoy your stay. We would camp here again. - Paul Bunt
