The owners are friendly and helpful, stopping by the RV after we got set up with brochures and information on the area. The park has numerous flower gardens and everything is kept up nicely. The laundry is in a shelter type area and has tables, fridge, benches, etc for gatherings. The park is located near the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains, so the view from the park is nice. The internet is free and worked very well...a pleasant surprise from other parks. It's quiet and well managed and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. We stayed for 9 days. We camped at Trails End RV Park in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
I found pickleball at the Old Armory Rec Center in downtown Waynesville, always a need of mine.

This campground was a little different from anywhere else we have stayed, but we enjoyed our time there. We always take our showers in the campground bathrooms, and after I had made our reservations, we realized that they don't have a bathroom at all! All the sites have full hookups, so for the time being, you must use your own. I think there are plans to build a bathhouse. There's also no real "office", but we were greeted by a man on a golf cart as we drove in. They had already emailed us our site number, so they told us to pull in and they would register us when they could. Some of the sites are pretty short but we were fine. Some are gravel and some have concrete pads. It's in a valley with nice views of the surrounding mountains. We were invited to a pot-luck supper on our second night there. Don't miss the winding drive to Cataloochee Valley to see the elk herds, which has its entrance very near the campground. We camped at Trails End RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is one of my favorite campgrounds, with an awesome view of the Smoky Mountains. The campground is well taken care off, with a small stream, and flower garden. Quiet and away from the main roads, but easy to get to. The only negative is that the sites were not very long. So if you have a 40 ft or longer RV, there is not much room to park your tow vehicle or toad. A lot of sites are taken by those there for the season or are annuals, still we had a site that had an wonderful view of the mountains, corn fields, and cows. The seasonal campers were very friendly and helpful. Close to the Smoky Mountain NP, Waynesville, Maggie Valley, and Elk viewing. The cost was an average for the Labor Day week and includes a Passport America discount for 3 days. Excellent cable TV and WiFi are included in the price. If we go back to the area, we would stay there again. Highly recommended. We camped at Trails End RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Price shown reflects seasonal rate. This park is a little piece of paradise, up the road from the Jonathan Valley. Normally, I would not give a park a "10" rating when it doesn't have a pool or even a bathroom or showers, but we are having such a good time here, I have to give it my top rating. It's not fancy, but it feels like home. It is a peaceful, quiet environment far enough off the major roads to avoid the sound of traffic, but not so far as to be out in the middle of nowhere. We had no trouble getting our 39-foot rig up the road or into the park. At about 2400 feet altitude, the nights are cool and the days are warm (it's the middle of July and we haven't had the air conditioner on yet!). The view of the mountains all around is breathtaking. The park is landscaped with beautiful flowers and plantings and the owner and camp hosts are constantly improving and sprucing up the park. They are responsive to any problems or requests. Convenient to shopping in Waynesville and Maggie Valley and it's only about a 40-minute drive to Asheville. There is no end of places to visit within a two-hour drive, mostly less than two hours. There are some true big-rig sites and some more suitable for smaller trailers. The owner frequently hosts cook-outs and ice-cream socials in the clubhouse and also arranges for motorcycle outings and lunch runs to scenic areas. Today, I realized that it is less like he is running a RV park and more like he has invited 75 of his "cousins" to spend the summer and he wants them to have a good time. Mostly permanents and seasonals but there are spaces for shorter stays. Everyone is extremely friendly and welcoming. Very pet friendly (and if you don't have your own dog, no worry.....Duke and Blizzard - the park dogs - will adopt you). Good places to walk dogs and a big open area for throwing balls. Strong Wi-Fi, cable, water pressure and electricity. Sites are very level. Two washers and dryers in the club house. We camped at Trails End RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
This park has beautiful landscaping and beautiful mountain views. It is well off the highway, so it's very quiet. Residents are mostly seasonal, and the park was mostly full when we were there. The sites still available were neither as large nor as level as those already taken. Our slides were against a tree on one side, while the awning was against a tree on the other side. Cable and Wifi worked well. We also had ATT cell coverage, not real common in the area. Rate quoted is full rate; Passport America is available weekdays. We camped at Trails End RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Park is nicely landscaped. Hosts/management are very friendly. The sites are somewhat small for a big rig (no parking in the site for a tow vehicle). If the park was full, tow parking would be a big issue. The WiFi did NOT work well for us. We camped at Trails End RV Park in a Motorhome.

Had a wonderful time in the Waynesville area and at Trails End. The campground was very quiet as most of the campers were long term (month or more). Nicely landscaped and very clean. Hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Close to Waynesville, Maggie Valley, Cherokee and Great Smokey Mountains NP. Will definitely be back there again. We camped at Trails End RV Park in a Motorhome.
If you want to stay in a beautiful, quiet, peaceful, scenic RV park surrounded by mountains and operated by friendly people, this is the place for you. The flowers and grounds are beautifully maintained. There is a small creek running alongside the property and you can hear the sounds of the small waterfall all day: absolutely wonderful! We camped here for a month and will definitely return. The owner and his assistants, were absolutely delightful and did everything to make our stay pleasant and comfortable. The rate was a monthly rate with electricity being an additional cost. I highly and heartily recommend Trail's End RV Park! We camped at Trails End RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is a bit on the spartan side but the views and surrounding countryside are spectacular. This is a wonderful spot for some quiet and tranquility. The owner is friendly and helpful and quite interesting to talk with. At the time of our stay there were no laundry facilities but I believe there were plans to add them. It seems a bit pricey for the amenities (or lack thereof) but we would stay here again. We camped at Trails End RV Park in a Motorhome.
Very nice, clean park. Gorgeous views of the mountains on all sides. Small stream through property, new landscaping. Close to Maggie Valley/Asheville. Very nice management. We definitely will be back. We camped at Trails End RV Park in a Motorhome.
A very relaxing, beautifully kept property. Owner is "green" and very diligent. Location is bucolic: way of the main road but still easy to find because of signage. Worth a retrip. We camped at Trails End RV Park in a Motorhome.
Park is actually closest to Maggie Valley, and our favorite in the area as it is off the main noisy roads. It has improved over the several years that we have been staying here. Some sites are next to a creek. They have recently added some pull through sites which helps with our Toyhauler to get bikes out and in. Nice folks and they will work with you to make you happy. Rate is $35-41 and they have monthly rates. We camped at Trails End RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
