I read some of the other reviews. I don't know where a couple of them stayed. I read some reviews on another website, it helped me decide to give them a try. Glad I did. This place is great. Paved entrance and basketball court. Nice pool and play area. They have a great pet area all fenced in, they make sure all pets are kept on a leash at all times. The park is gated and the owner was almost always there. I spoke with him (very helpful) he is planning on Paving more this fall and making more improvements every year. I love this place. - Camp fun always

We have just begun full time RVing so have little knowledge about the wide variety of places we could stay and the amenities or lack of them. Before staying here, we stayed at two pretty awful places, so we felt like we arrived at Shangrila when we got there. After the first day, I think we did. Everything was immaculate. The bath house provides about 10-12 private rooms with toilet, sink and shower. Laundry was clean, nice updated washers and dryers. Spaces were level and the staff was very helpful guiding us into our spot. All hookups worked well. Internet was fine and cable TV was also good. The staff was always there, very helpful and friendly. Spaces are a little tight, but enough room for your rig, tow vehicle, picnic table, chairs and fire pit. Would definitely go back. As we were leaving, the owner came running out of the office, whistling and hollering to get our attention. We thought something was wrong...he just wanted to say goodbye and thanks for staying with them. Nice! - Becky N

The way to the campground (321) is a narrow, somewhat windy road, With trees close to the road edge.
The campground itself, is all gravel, dusty, and the sites are stair stepped, so you may not feel that they are that large, as there is a 2 foot drop to the site on one side you, and a 2 foot bank to the site on the other side of you. With our large rig, the picnic table, fire pit and our basement doors open, it was really tight for us. We were on site #50. We paid $66.00 for over night standard pull through site. There are trees on all the sites, and with our slide out, witch made it a little tight for us,. They do have super pull through sites, but they are 2 back to back sites that you can use as one long pull through. Thay are almost $80.00 per night, including tax.
The plusses to this park is that it is right at the Smokey Mountain National Park. It had a large mowed area just out side the campground that you could let your dog off lease as long as the listen, and come back to you. The office people were GREAT, pleasant, and helpful. The roads are adiquit, and they escort you to your site, and help you to park. If you want a quiet, Rustic park, that gives you the feeling of a state park with full hookups. This is the park. We did not use the bathroom, or laundry. We only stayed one night. Also DO NOT GPS THEIR ADDRESS. GOOGLE WILL TAKE YOU DOWN SMALL ROADS. The office told us that. - Honeybear & Sugarbear

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

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 fun Halloween weekend filled with activities, costumes (both children and adults) and guests decorating their sites. This campground celebrates Halloween every weekend in October and first weekend in November. There is also trick or treating for the children. Campers treat the children if they choose to do so. Already made reservations for next year. That's how much we enjoyed it. - mgrant

We stayed in premium site 38. Backing into the site in our 41' motorhome was tight, but the help from the staff made it easier (departing early in the morning in the dark was a fun experience, but doable).
Our stay was very enjoyable as the park was not crowded so we could really enjoy the peace and quiet - hearing animals/birds and the flowing creek was nice. We also enjoyed being able to hike to trails in the Smoky Mountains National Park right from campground. The office staff was very friendly and helpful and the park was organized and clean. - MHA AAA

We took our family to the foothills of the Great Smokey Mtns. to experience what the south has to offer. The Imagination Mtn campground is unique in their offerings of campsites. From back-ins, pull throughs, cabins and even yurts. They have an awesome ice cream counter/soda shop and lots of family friendly amenities. My favorite part is the creek that runs through the campground. It was a great to listen to and fall asleep to. We unfortunately had mostly rain our week stay here so we could not enjoy everything. We did venture into the mountains and rode the river rapids, the alpine slides and watched bears. We had an issue with hornet bees in the campground near the creek. They nested in the ground so we didn't see them. They are very aggressive and will chase you. My daughter had no less than 6 stings at one time. She was miserable and the stings were large enough to draw blood. The management came out and attempted to remedy them. There are a blue zillion campgrounds in the area. We really liked how quaint this campground was and would consider returning in the future. - cschafer

Pricing was $45/night less 10% Good Sam discount plus tax. We ended up about $46/night. Reservation and check-in process were professional, efficient and friendly. Signage from the street is good. We hooked/unhooked in front of the office. The entire property slopes so we felt it best to unhook first. All hook-ups worked perfectly. We were able to obtain Verizon cell, Sprint Mifi and DirecTV signals. Our pull-through site was level. There is a pool and hot tub but they were buttoned up for the winter. There is slight road noise but not enough to be annoying. There were a few pieces of small trash (plastic tie wrap, cigarette butt, candy wrapper) in our site but I wouldn't say our site was "dirty". Campground wifi didn't work for us. We had a decent stay - nothing especially good and nothing especially bad. If returning to the area, we would be open to staying here again but might explore other options first.
Our biggest disappointment (not the campground's fault) is how far the CG is from area attractions. The number of miles might not seem like much on paper but when you factor in the extent of traffic in the area (both in/around downtown Gatlinburg AND in/around the Smokes), the extra miles to/from the CG was a bummer. There is another CG closer to town with a Trolley Stop in front of it that might be more convenient. - GottaGoNow

Quaint Campground. Not that large, but adequately spaced sites. Peaceful location. Friendly host. - Maltaman

We were fortunate to get the last spot in the campground. It was a little tight, especially the car, but staff very helpful getting us comfortable. The owner and staff were excellent and helped with ideas in visiting Gatlinburg. The campground was well maintained. Pool and hot tub were already closed for the season. - Fitzcat

This is a very clean and well-maintained park, with friendly and helpful staff.
All sites are owned, with some rented; therefore it is safe to say not all sites are equal. Ours was great! If "satellite-friendly" is important, be sure to ask in advance. WiFi was absolutely terrible. We were also surprised to experience very low water pressure - really low. This may have been a temporary issue, but would not hurt to ask when reserving.
As another reviewer pointed out, this campground is 11 miles from Gatlinburg. This, in our opinion, is too far from the action. - CO2RV

We loved this park! It was beautifully landscaped and we had a great site right next to the pool and activity center. The seasonal owners made us feel very welcome :) The laundry room was very clean and had ample washers and dryers. The roads are all paved and were a bit hard to maneuver around a tight corner to our site and back in but we made it in after a couple of tries. The only issues we had were no phone signal or internet. I would definitely stay here again if I went to this area. - RetiredCoppers

Stayed here for 3 days and was a very nice experience. Park is very well kept and staff is very friendly and helpful. Some "rental" sites are hard to back in, due to angle of road to site and up hill angle. Our site, #30, was right on the creek w/a nice terrace and fire pit, although it was a bit tight for our 35' 5'er w/triple slides, especially on the road side property line. Some older units, but all are in good shape. Many units for sale. Biggest disadvantage is the distance form town which is almost 9 miles, but otherwise an excellent place to stay to enjoy the scenery and just relax. - A C Willaman

This KOA is showing some age. However, most items seem to be in good working order. The bathhouses were spotless and up to date. The pool was in decent repair and was clean. It had plenty of lawn chairs to sit in. The sites were mostly level. There were about 10-15 long term sites and most of these were well maintained. There was a fire ring, a picnic table (painted yellow), water, electricity, and cable at each site. The trees were in the correct place. Overall the staffs were OK. A few negatives include too many signs. The dog run needed water and a place to sit. The office looked like a souvenir store. The WIFI was spotty at best. Lastly, the grounds were well maintained and the grass was mowed. - mudhound

Glad we are only staying here one night! Road to get back to the park is very tight and narrow! Once inside the park it's uphill on gravel road. One way in, one way out! A lot of permanent residents all throughout the park. Old cable with a converter box system. I thought in 2016 that everyone had cable without boxes. Boy I WAS WRONG THERE!
Site was unlevel and gravel. Hope you have 2 fresh water hoses cause if you stay here you are going to need them. The water is in the very rear of the site; and also 2 sewage hoses to hook up. The fire ring is an old rusty hub off a tractor trailer. The picnic table looks like someone made it and didn't look safe to sit on.
Oh, it's shady all right; they need to trim them.
If I only knew we would have stayed in Gatlinburg! Spend the money and stay there. I will next time! - virginiagirl2015

Super friendly, kind and courteous. Pull thru lot with full hookup. We stayed here a week ago on a trip to a campground in Cherokee, NC. On our way back from Cherokee we stayed here again and it was like returning home. We love it here. Customer service was exceptional. - Ed-Kat

Under new ownership. New name Tana-See. New owners are fixing up and taking pride in the park. Targeting families. Restrooms older but freshly painted and clean. Office staff beyond friendly and very accommodating. Sites are gravel with hookups. 5 sites are pull-through. Other sites are back in...not sure how many they have. Pool has new liner and is clean. Homemade mini golf. Play area and games. "Train ride" with engine being a lawn mower. Picnic shelter with stage. Pond for fishing. New electric, water, and sewer at the sites. New picnic tables at each site. We are here on July 4th. They had a free hamburger, hot dog and chip cookout with all the trimmings and you could take sides. Games for the kids. Fireworks. New owner is great. This is just off 40 so easy access and great for our overnight. They have cable TV with 24 channels and the Wi-Fi is great!
We would come here again. - BorntoCruise

We stayed here in our 32ft motorhome. The checkin for our reserved campsite was very easy. We camped in a back in site with lots of shade. The level site was covered with small gravel, also had a new picnic table and fire ring. We spent a lot of time away from campsite during the day, but at night it was very quiet and peaceful. It is about 9 miles from Gatlinburg, and out in the country. We liked this. The cable tv worked good. No problems with the electric or sewer connection. We will be coming back here on our next trip to the area. - Bonzo656

Older campground just a few miles from Gatlinburg. The level shaded lots are spacious and easy to back-in. They only have 30 amps and our voltage kept dropping to below 105 volts which caused some issues with our appliances. The water and sewer hookups work fine but no cable and we couldn't pickup any over the air channels. Nothing fancy but clean and in a good location. We would stay here again. - dandg

Very pretty location at the foot of the Smoky Mountains. The campground is well named, as it is an island, with the river running on both sides. Most sites back directly onto the river. The campground is easy to access through Gatlinburg with our 39' fifth wheel but is far enough from the main roads to be very quiet at night - all you hear is the river flowing past the campsite. However, all the water also means mosquitoes, so don't forget the bug spray if you want to sit outside. If you have a taller rig, you may wish to avoid driving on the 321 east of this campground where it joins the I40. We drove this route with truck only first and decided there were too many low branches and wires for 13'6". 12' or less may be fine. West of the campground to Gatlinburg is no problem. - Dave Forster

We stayed here in our smallish TT in October. Hard to get to on a very windy and narrow dirt road, but if you take it slow it was easily doable. Wooded and pretty campground. One side of the campground is right on the water. The other side is close to the main road into Cataloochee. The first night we had tents all around us which was great. The next night we had a large 5th wheel on one side and another one behind us. Kind of lost the ambience for the second night. It is NOT generator free so that was a little bit of an issue as well. We like nature and quiet and even intermittent generator use is bothersome to us. The ranger was a lot of help and very friendly. There were hikes within easy walking distance from the campground and the elk were an easy bike ride away. Traffic could surprisingly get pretty tight in the afternoons when the elk are out and about. - Marciekaputnik

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
