Great views and this place is a resort, not a campground. Cons, 17 miles to Pigeon Forge / Dollywood.

This park has spoiled us for any other RV park! Where do I begin? From the moment you drive up and see the beautifully landscaped flower gardens greeting you, you know this is nice. Wide, paved streets lead you to nice wide spots that are paved - you park on paved, and have your firepit and truck parking on paved. Everything else surrounding that was nice neat big gravel. Some of the spots have more shade than others; some have better views (and are more expensive) than others. We were there in September, so the only time we saw kids was on the weekend. But there was so much for kids to do - their own white sandy beach and swimming area; playground equipment. The park is right on Douglas Lake, so had a great launch place for boats or, in our case, kayaks. The lake was nice and quiet when we kayaked. There were two bathhouses, each with several private bathrooms, with sink, toilet and huge shower. Those bathrooms were amazing, with tile and granite! And very clean. They also had a "Campground Cafe" food truck right by the swimming pool, and they served all kinds of foods. We didn't get a chance to hike, because the weather was hot, humid, or raining, but look forward to that next time. Also - we were having a problem with one of our slides, and my husband was standing on the truck to try to fix the outside of the slide cover, when along came a man on staff in a golf cart, asking if he could help. He went and got his tools, came back, and probably spent almost an hour helping my husband. When he left, we asked his name (to give him a good review), and he said he was the owner! What a nice, humble guy he was. I just can't think of anything bad to say about this place! Decent wifi, great cable. We camped at Anchor Down RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Cleanliness was outstanding in all areas of the park, especially in the restrooms/showers. The rest room "compartments" are totally private, spacious spaces that contain a sink, toilet and shower and are spotlessly clean at all times. The campsites are mostly level and are all hardscape so they stay clean. Unfortunately, our site (a pull-in) was next to a back-in site, so our awning and door faced our neighbor's awning and door, so we were face-to-face with them. On the other side, we were only inches from that neighbor. Both our neighbors were quiet and friendly, so it was not much of an issue, except for privacy. Our site was on the road to the "beach" and boat launch, so there was a lot of golf cart and vehicle traffic going by throughout the day, especially on the weekend. Most other sites also seemed close together but many had a fantastic view of the lake with the mountains in the background. The sandy beach was very nice and very clean, with a super water slide close-by that was excellent fun. The pool was also clean and fun, with a water-slide that was enjoyed by children. We cannot say enough about the staff at this site that was extremely friendly and helpful. They constantly worked to make sure every bit of trash or dirt was picked up, and would offer you a ride to your site if they passed you as you were walking. The campground was quite hilly, but they rent golf carts that appeared to be fairly new so that makes it easy to get around. Wi-Fi and cable was excellent. We thought we could ride our bikes, but it was too hilly, and the main road had no shoulders so we were restricted to staying in the park as it was too dangerous to walk or ride the main road outside of the park - and, since the park was so hilly, we did not ride the bikes at all after day-one, a disappointment. We do not tow a car, and usually rely on walking or biking. There are several sites on the hill that had outstanding views, and some nice shade. If we go back, we will try to reserve one of those sites. We camped at Anchor Down RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We called to sign up for the boat tour and were told he would contact us the next day with a departure time. He did not call. We called him the second day and he told us again he was going out the next day and would call us - he did not. We gave up.

A true resort. This place would be fabulous for families with kids. It has EVERYTHING: pool, water park on lake, views, dog park and more. We had site 17 up on a hill which was very spacious with a view of the lake. The sites that were on the lower level with back ins on the lake looked congested. One must rent a golf cart for $39/day to get to the office, pool, water park, etc. unless you young and athletic. Sitting by the pool one has a beautiful view of the lake. There is a little walk-up place near the pool that has hot dogs, hamburgers and pork sandwiches. The surface where you park your RV is a little strange. It is kind of cement but slick and textured. We tried to use our Camco leveling blocks, but they just skidded along and got chewed up by the texture. Luckily we had some wood we could use. The pad was not far off level. We camped at Anchor Down RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Absolutely go to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville North Carolina. Rent a golf cart at Anchor Down - just count it as part of the cost of staying there. Sit down by the pool to take in the view of the lake.

This was our 6th stay at this top-shelf RV resort. We have been coming here since they first opened and they just keep adding on and getting better and better. They now have an awesome dog park, a basketball / pickle ball court, a white sand beach at their lake front with a couple of huge blowup slides. They have also added a concessionaire near the pool and lake that offer sandwiches and ice cream, etc. A first class RV resort that is extremely popular. You better book early if you want to stay here or you'll be out of luck. We camped at Anchor Down RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stay here every Memorial Day with family in a second unit. We love it here and have the next 2 Memorial Days already booked so we can have our buddy sites. They are continually adding to this park. They upgraded the "beach" area this past season and added two awesome water slides. You may want to rent or bring your golf cart as it can be a hike up hill to some places in the park. Always spotless and the staff are always friendly. Excellent dog park and tennis/basketball/pickleball courts. Also a pretty decent pool. We camped at Anchor Down RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a premier campground. There was nothing not to like about it. We were promptly greeted when we arrived. Check-in was a breeze. Only suggestion would be to have someone guide guest to their site. Having never camped here before we weren't really sure how to get to our site. We were in site #129 which is a row back from having a perfect view of the lake. This campground is big and thankfully we had the foresight to rent a golf cart for the week. It definitely came in handy. The bathrooms are first class, very spacious and very clean. Anchor Down even had a little cafe that served sandwiches, drinks and ice cream. We will definitely camp here again. We camped at Anchor Down RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

A beautiful RV resort. Park located approx. 4 miles off I-40, good access roads. They provided directions, and we by-passed heavy traffic once off I-40. Entrance is wide, up on a incline. When we entered the park, there was staff outside check-in directing where to park for staging as there were 4 other RVs coming in at same time. They had two people working check in inside office. Check in took a few minutes but staff very friendly and helpful. We were directed to our site, easy to locate. We couldn't unhook at check in, therefore were able to once we arrive in front of our site. Internal roads are wide. Our site was back in, 50 amp, with patio and picnic table. We have 40 ft RV, Rig fit great and there was room for our jeep at site. Plenty of room between our site and the next one on the side and back. Rig needed to be leveled in the front, but back was close to level. Our site didn't have trees, therefore was able to get satellite. They also have cable as there are some sites that back up to mature trees. Clean, individual bathrooms located around the park. There is a laundry room, but didn't use it. Garbage is picked up at site in the AM, or there are dumpsters located in overflow parking. There is a dog park, plus plenty of green space to walk dogs with trashcans and bags. Beautiful views of the lake from around the park. There are activities in and around the lake as well as ball courts. There are two overflow parking lots for extra vehicles, boats, jet skis. There is a food truck on site located near the pool. Park is clean and well maintained. We saw staff out and about all day. Park was sold out when we were there, yet it was quiet at night. We were here for a Rally, had a great time, and will be back on our own soon! We camped at Anchor Down RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. The staff was friendly and helpful. The view from our upper level site was fantastic. We used the lake, pool, basketball court and dog park. We rented paddle boards and used the fire place nightly. We would suggest using the webpage to look at the sites offered and pick one with view of water and mountains. We made reservations over one year in advance. We drove 10 hours to get there and I wouldn't do it for a site that's located on lower lot with no view. We will return.

We were the smallest unit in the whole resort :) Be ready to see the mega-busses and 5th wheels arrive. Beautiful park, our site had a fireplace - loved that feature. The lake and mountains are amazing. Very clean and wonderful amenities. Yes, expensive but worth it.

Never paid this much for a campsite, but I do have to say that this place is beautiful! Some of the campsites have huge fireplaces, there are some nice views of the Lake, etc. Many amenities, pool, beach volleyball, arcade, etc. The restrooms/showers were all private rooms..awesome!! Very impressive, and the price would not have been bad if I were there longer to use Resort more..kind of expensive for just an overnight stay. We camped at Anchor Down RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This was our first stay here but we would definitely return. The sites were so well-maintained, paved, metal picnic tables & we got a site with a fireplace which was our favorite amenity. The view was so peaceful & the flowers were out in full bloom, even the birds seemed happy here with their singing! The staff was friendly, delivered firewood & picked up the trash every day from the curb of our site. We didn't use the restrooms but looked into them & liked how they were tiled, individual full-size bathrooms. We just loved the quietness, view of the lake/mountains & fireplaces!
