This park is older, and is in need of a few updates. The new owners are really trying to bring the park up to what the public expects of a campground. It has a pool, but has been closed most of the 2016 season due to leaks, but the owners assure that it will be repaired and hopefully ready for the 2017 season. The bathrooms need to be remodeled. The owners are nice and try t0 make everyone comfortable. - DaryRon Steffe

Stayed in 25' hybrid travel trailer for four nights. New owners since last year have been working on improving the campground. They were very supportive in helping us get a fire grate setup and wood when I forgot to bring my own. There is perm camping in this campground, however, the folks that were there were quiet and very considerate. The circle around the campground is tight. Backing into our spot took a bit of effort for the spot that it was in. Not all sites are like this, and all sites seemed very reasonable. Spacious sites, being preseason, we could park next to the camper and the kids played in the spot on the other side of that. Park should be much better for kids when pool is fixed and playground is setup as the owner said should be happening soon. The road into the campground is narrow, but there were no branches hitting our camper. You just have to watch what you are doing. When you get to a Y in the road, do NOT go right. Google maps sends you right. You will go to Cherokee, and face a tight turn around. Go LEFT at the Y, and save yourself the hassle! Turning back out onto 107 can be a hassle when traffic is going. This campground was nice for the price on PA. Everything described as is and delivered well. Take it easy going in and out of there, and everything else should be just fine. We had 30A hook up with sewer and no problems with either. Would camp there again. - scarter4work

The park is located in a beautiful farm valley next to the Cherokee National forest. The park has shaded and open sites. The road and sites are gravel. Sites are medium to large. Rest room and shower facility is small but clean. The campground has a large activity building equipped with a wood stove, fireplace and refrigerator. The owner is very friendly. We will stay there again when we camp in the area. - dogwood96

$13.75 per night (half off-season senior rate for any row except the front row nearest the river but the park was empty this time of year so I could see/hear the river without problem and the max length of stay is extended to 21 days) was for a mostly level asphalt pull-through site with 50-amp electric, water, and sewer. Follow the posted brown park signs to the park as opposed to your GPS to avoid having to do a 180° turn (I had to disconnect my tow vehicle too) to enter the park. Site #34 was wide and long enough for my 40' motorhome and tow to park on comfortably. Slides and awnings had room to extend as well. Although sites are narrow, each site has a picnic table and some room to set up chairs. The park has community fire rings but there was a burn ban when I was there. It was very quiet during my stay. When I arrived, a very personable campground host was staffing the campground office and provided lots of information on the park and the local area. The night sky was brilliant with stars. Nearby larger cities have every amenity. AT&T was acceptable for texting and voice. My Verizon jetpack worked very well for internet reception. They do have park WiFI but I did not use it. I received eight (ABC was the only major network) digital over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. - DD Rolling Ranch

Stayed one night.
Clean and well kept.
Wi-fi has limited capacity, they tell you upfront that streaming video, etc users will be automatically cutoff. Signal not consistent.
Look at site descriptions when you reserve online. Our lot was nice and level. Most in the row closer to the river were slightly inclined.
Lots of overnighters.
Kind of far from nearby towns. The park and campground are next to the scenic Nolichucky River. - TomAndKathy

This is a popular park that offers many weekend activities which help attract folks. It is well off of US 11 on winding roads. They have many pull-through FHU sites which were long, paved, and nearly level. The large tent area and the back-in sites included fire rings. The campground borders a rapidly running river. It is about midway between Johnson City and Greeneville. - exceltraveler

We spent two nights here in the spring, on our way to Ohio - we were so impressed, we just spent two more nights here on the way back. We stayed in a river site (#29 - had #30 in the spring) which costs $10 extra, but to us, is well worth it. We would like to spend a week or more here next summer - it is a little gem of a park! The food in their diner is tasty as well. - rburckhart

We stayed here to escape the Heat in SC. It's a beautiful park on the Nolichucky river. Nice size sites. Maneuvering in a 40 ft MH was a little tight but manageable. The sites right on the river are worth the premium.
The wifi was above average. AT&T cellular signal was -110 to -120db...equal to 1 bar.
Maybe we just got a bad batch but the firewood was the most green we've had in a long time. I'd find someplace else locally to buy it. - DCRichardson

We decided to pay the extra $10 for a riverfront site; it was money well spent! We were in site #30 right next to the rapids - it was quite noisy (the water) but we didn't mind. We will stay here again on the way back to FL in the fall. - rburckhart

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

First off, this park is nestled into the forest and right up against the river. It is probably the most scenic park that we have stayed at. However, I would not say that we had an overall positive experience. I do think that this park is geared toward tent campers much more than RVs. We have a 42' rig and the drive in was pretty scary. I am still kind of surprised that we didn't damage anything. There are dogs that run free in the park, that are not picked up after. There appeared to be full-time resident tent campers which I didn't even know was a thing. One of the cabins had a Confederate Flag flying from the porch. We ended up leaving early. - glanotte

Before school started back, we stayed in the heart of the Applachian Mountains at this truly gorgeous campground right along the Nolichucky River. Our kids were able to swim and fish right out the front door and we're so happy to have found such a lovely place close to home for a mini-vacation. Since it's such an easy drive from Knoxville (only 1.5 hours away!), we plan to return next summer a few more times and we even went whitewater rafting while we were there! The Noli is just a hidden gem for families to get away. (I almost hate to review it and tell others to go since we really loved the low-key, non-crowded facility!) The road was freshly paved and very easy to navigate our RV into the campground and into our slot. We quickly made friends with our neighbors and a few other families there that weekend that had kids the same ages as ours, so they all want to plan a trip together next year! I'm so glad to have found such a wonderful place for quick weekend visits! - PeachyCreative

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

Rock Creek National Forest campground is located in Cherokee National Forest in Northeast TN. Roads inside the campground while paved are fairly narrow. We had no trouble navigating the roads with our truck and 31' toy hauler trailer. Sites are gravel and many are large and deep. The larger sites can easily hold the largest RVs. The old growth trees and thick understory provide privacy for the sites. One loop, C has 50 amp electrical service while loops A and B have 30 amp service. This is a beautiful area and it is usually 10 degrees cooler than surrounding areas. Fees are $20 or $15 with a golden age pass. If you tent camp, there are 5 walk in tent sites with pea gravel pads at the top of loop C. The swimming area is unique. It is a large rounded cement pond with creek water glowing through it. Numerous hiking trails nearby. No reservations here and it is a very popular park. I recommend you arrive mid week to improve your chances to get a site. - linnemj

Well-shaded and very private sites in this lovely, quiet campground. Verizon signal very weak but usable with antenna. Beautiful trails and rhododendrons everywhere. It's probably spectacular in the spring! Ended up staying six days. - mockturtle

Beautiful NFS campground. Roads are paved, sites are gravel, level, huge, and well-spaced for privacy. Campground is shady and cool, nice for family camping. Restrooms/showers could be cleaner. Rate reflects senior discount. We would stay here again. - tnyankee

We stayed at WoodSmoke Campground on our first outing with our new travel trailer. There is a Walmart a few miles from the campground and we used our weekend as a time to get things we had not thought of for the new camper. There are also many small restaurants and shops in Unicoi and Erwin, TN, close by. The campground is a small family run facility. It is immaculately clean (Cleanest camp bathhouse we have ever seen in many years of camping!) and all sites have some degree of shade. There were a few seasonal campers, but most sites were open for rentals from short stayers like we were. The camp ground was nice and quiet. I-26 is less than a mile away, but there is very little truck traffic on that portion, so you don't notice traffic noise very much at all. We did hear train whistles two times and thought that was charming. The owners are very conscientious and helpful. Our only confusion was why they put us on a corner site with little privacy when there were several other more private, more heavily wooded sites available the whole time we were there. If we had it to do again I would ask ahead what sort of site we were renting and express a hope for privacy. But we were still happy and enjoyed our stay. - TN Vogels

We stumbled upon Woodsmoke Campground because our original choice was full. The reviews of Woodsmoke sounded good, so we decided to request a site via their website. Usually when we request a site online from a campground, we do not hear from them for days. Woodsmoke was a pleasant exception, as they replied within an hour of our request. I was able to call the following day to confirm our reservation. The lady I spoke with was extremely nice and accommodating.
Our initial reaction was that this campground was too close to home, as it is 30-35min. As soon as we drove into the beautiful private entrance, we realized that we were badly mistaken with our initial reaction. Just a half hour from home, we felt we were hours away.
The owner met us at the office and politely guided us to our spot and assisted in getting us perfectly positioned in our wonderful, private site. Our site backed up to a small stream, which added to the wonderful ambiance of our experience. The sites were large and well spaced. The bathhouse was extremely clean. It is obvious that the owner's take an exceptional amount of pride in maintaining this campground.
At the entrance to the campground is the trailhead to the Pinnacle Tower Trail. This is a 4.8mile hiking/biking trail. The views from the tower are beyond words! I mountain biked this trail two times during out stay and thoroughly enjoyed it. This is a must for anyone able to make the trek!
Within walking distance (or a very short drive) are a Dollar General store and a package store with all of your liquor, wine and beer needs. The package store had a great selection of craft and high gravity beers as well as the yellow fizzy stuff.
Woodsmoke is great whether you are coming from near or far. The owner's are exceptional, the facilities are phenomenal, and the location is convenient. We have ruled out return trips to other campgrounds after a wonderful weekend at Woodsmoke Campground! You must experience! - JandJ TN Travelers

This park is clean, well maintained and simple. We stayed for 2 nights. Did not use the bathhouse, but did see them on site. No on site laundry. No activities for children, but my kids enjoyed just being outside. Sites are gravel and well spaced. Roads are a bit tight, as stated previously. Our travel trailer is 36' and we found some of the turns to be tight, but doable. The real gem here is the staff. They were amazing. Very knowledgeable, helpful and hard workers constantly on the move bettering this park. The scenery is nice being this close to the national forest. The park is wooded and natural. If you're looking for a quiet, simple place surrounded by nature with full hookups- this would be for you. I would stay here again! - Brownsonthemove

42' 5er. Stayed for a month. Great location off of 81. Easy to get large units in and out. Great staff that will go out of the way to assist. Nice pool and a huge area to run dogs. Will return again. - On the way

Small park with easy access to I81. Sites are level and surfaced with gravel. About 8 foot grassy area between sites. Roads were gravel surfaced also and wide enough for easy navigation. Wifi was ok, AT&T phone and hotspot worked fine. Trees blocked satellite, but park cable was good. - westwill3

Peaceful and quiet. Large field for dogs to run off leash. New pool. Staff VERY friendly! Trash pickup at your site twice per day. Great for adults wanting quiet setting. Will definitely stay here whenever we pass through east TN. - Frethel
