This facility is absolutely beautiful. It is off the beaten path for the tourism, has amazing views of Douglas Lake, and the Smokies across the lake. The staff is professional and friendly. The facilities are fresh and clean. The resort is on par if not exceeding the former Outdoor Resorts, Blue Water Key in Key West yet is not a lot owner held resort. This place is on the top five of our campgrounds we have stayed at. We WILL return. Soon. We camped at Anchor Down RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We have been RV'ing a little over two years and we have found the "Mecca" of a campground!
Nestled on the side of a hill overlooking a lake the campsights are the best we have ever expierenced. There are many options but, we were in Lot #61 - a back-in with a freestanding full fireplace. The view is to die for and the lots are paved with some grass trip.
Landscaping in the campground is immaculate and well kept. WiFi was good - we did not use their Cable because we have a dish.
Pigeon Forge and all of that is about 15 minutes away across the lake but, we only went over once - stayed in the campground. We'll be back soon! We camped at Anchor Down RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

ALL campgrounds should be measured against Anchor Down RV Park. WOW....We glamped in site 158. Amazing views of lake. Full hook up with free standing stone fireplace. All sites are stamped concrete. All roads are paved. Most sites are large and have excellent views. These owners have set a high bar for RV resorts. I would recommend everyone with a motor coach camp here. No tents allowed. The bathhouse has seven privaye bathrooms/shower/toilets with slate floors/walls and granite counters, very spacious. Their is a large pool with water slide. Closed for the season. The grounds are spectacular. Block walls, stones, paved electic golf cart path. (rentals available) Laundry has three washers and six dryers (2.00 each). Large sites. Very well layed out. We camped at Anchor Down RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Many things to see and do in the area.

This resort has to be on our Top Ten all time places to camp. Even though it is only a short drive from our home base we enjoy the short drive to get away and spend time with other campers. The staff is always friendly and extremely helpful. The sites are large and easy to get in and out of with plenty of space to stretch your legs. Not to mention the views of the lake and a backdrop of the Great Smoky Mountains. We camped at Anchor Down RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Anchor Down is just a short trip into Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg for all your shopping needs.

Beautiful views, very clean - one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. Wonderful kids programs. Not good for kids on small bikes as the recreation and pool are down a steep drive. Rent your golf cart way in advance as they are gone quickly. Looking forward to returning with grandkids next summer for the pool and water park.

This is an excellent RV Park - other RV Park owners need to visit Anchor Down and take lessons in how to design and run an RV Park.

Great sites - really excellent sites - many with stained and patterned concrete and stone wood burning FIREPLACES. all set up around a beautiful lake in Eastern Tennessee. If you're coming near Knoxville don't stay anywhere else and don't complain about the pricing ($69 a night PLUS taxes and fees that come to nearly $80 a night.)

I have two complaints - one: not enough washing machines in the laundry room and two: you are required to use pads under your jacks on their concrete pads. Hello, people come here in their million dollar coaches yet must crawl on their belly under the coach to place a pad under their auto leveling jack stands??? On concrete no less?

Still it's a great place. We camped at Anchor Down RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful and well run resort but is very expensive ($68.89 with taxes & fees)for an overnight or a couple of days layover. It is their off-season and one would think they 'd lower their rates to attract those RVers traveling through the Knoxville area. We camped at Anchor Down RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Anchor Down is in an excellent location only about 4 miles from I-40 and a eleven miles from Sevierville. Anchor Down is one of the nicest RV parks we have visited. The views are incredible. Sites are either down near the lake, or an upper level overlooking the lower sites with the mountains in the background. We chose an upper site with an excellent view and some shade from a row of pine trees. The majority of the sites in the lower area have no shade. Many sites have beautiful rock fireplaces and the other sites all have very nice fire rings. Many of the sites have coated stamped concrete. They require you to use wood or plastic jack pads as not to damage the concrete coatings. The staff was great, bath and laundry facilities very clean. Golf carts can be rented as the walk to the pool, beach or lake can be quite a hike from some areas of the park. The only negative we found was the number of off level sites, the only reason I can't give it a 5 star. The site we were on, once our Level Up system got us level the right tires were 3 1/2 inches off the ground. That is a 3 1/2 inch drop in 7 feet, side to side. What were they thinking? We will return but will ask for a more level site. We camped at Anchor Down RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground has the most beautiful view of the lake and mountains. The access roads and sites can accommodate the largest rigs on the road. Our site had 2 sewer hookups depending on how you put your camper on the site. The staff and camp hosts are great. I wished I lived closer because I would definitely go there more often. We camped at Anchor Down RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Follow their directions to exit 412 to avoid the traffic.

This campground is new. Gorgeous views from every site. We have learned that we prefer the sites at the top of the hill. Obviously families would prefer to be near the swimming pool at the bottom. We did not use the amenities, we just stared at the view for 5 full days. We had a huge site with a very cool stone fireplace. It was too hot to build a fire, but our last night there we had company who did. It was gorgeous in the dark as the firebox opening was round. This has become our favorite campground. The staff was so friendly and helpful. We found not a single fault. We camped at Anchor Down RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is by far the nicest RV park we've stayed at in our 4 years of RVing. It is not cheap, but everything you could ask for. Sites are all concrete, large and level. WiFi is typically slow but all other utilities are good, although cable is limited. Park is on a hill and sites are terraced so you can see the lake from almost everywhere. Like all parks they ask you to pick up after your dog, but unlike most, they have cans for the poop bags and new bags. The pool is nice and there is a beach and dock along with a boat ramp. The bathrooms are all private and complete with shower, sink and toilet. Staff was very friendly upon checking in. Web site was great for making reservation and you could pick your site. We will definitely stay again. We camped at Anchor Down RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We have been here for six days now on site #175 which is a pull in site with a huge stone fireplace. Looking out over Douglas Lake and seeing the Smoky Mountains in the background is beautiful! All sites are paved with full hookups and 30/50 amp. Cable tv and WIFI included in the price. We got a pay for 6 get a free night price. Our site was $69 a night...... Beach area on the lake for swimming, with a huge floating trampoline and another in water inflatable. Also a large swimming pool with slide and a kiddie pool too. Large bathhouse with separate rooms with sink, shower, and toilets. laundry room is large also! Staff is very accommodating and friendly. Also has a dog run so you can let dogs off leash for a bit. There isn't really any shade as it's still a newer place, but tree's have been planted. Sites are all quite large, I believe 50' so lots of room. Overflow area for cars to park. Also have a boat ramp and a lot for trailers to be kept. Dock with jet ski ramps and boat slips for rent while there. We have enjoyed our stay here and don't really want to leave. We camped at Anchor Down RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This campground is truly a "10". Our site was level and long enough for our truck and rig. There was a stone fireplace and a spectacular view of Douglas Lake from our manicured elevated site. All utilities worked well. Rental golf carts are available for those who prefer not to navigate the hills on foot. There are a host of activities from swimming, boating, and sightseeing in the area. It is within an hour travel to Gaitlinburg, but without the congestion and hype. A great place to stay for an extended vacation. We camped at Anchor Down RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Bush bean factory museum is a fun place nearby. We enjoyed the historic town of Dandridge but missed lunch at the Tindle Bible Drug store. There is counter service available from 12 noon to 2pm, with the best burger in the country we were told! Unfortunately the counter was closed for vacation during our visit, but we will be sure to return.

A beautiful park that is well developed with concrete sites and paved roads. Four levels of sites that provided beautiful views of Douglas Lake from your camping site. Great staff at check-in and campground host was very helpful since it was our first time at this great campground. A short drive to Sevierville and Pigeon Forge but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quite. Not cheap but you pay for the quality of a great experience. We will return in the near future.
