This is probably one of the best parks in the area. So clean and neat. The only thing that kept me from giving them a perfect 10 was the limited cable and the sites were a little tight. Maybe a 9.75? We camped at Smoky Bear Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Campground was very well maintained. Owners and staff great and knowledgeable about the area. HENCE, why you should follow their directions to get there on their website instead of your GPS. The back in spots seems to have more room than the pull through site. If I had any complaint at all it would be that there wasn't a fenced pet area - but not the end of the world for sure. I would certainly stay here again. We camped at Smoky Bear Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a lovely park located east of the tourist insanity of Gatlinburg (i.e., it's quiet) but still close to all the area attractions. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. They provided us with a very informative list of area attractions, including good descriptions of various hiking trails in Great Smoky Mountain National Park. On our last morning, we had a bad problem with our landing gear as well as a tire issue and they helped us out so we could safely hit the road. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Smoky Bear Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

So happy to have found this lovely little campground. As far as I'm concerned the further I could get from tourist-centric Gatlinburg the better. My level, gravel back in site # 29 is wooded in back, preferable to me with my Class B cargo doors that open onto that view. Limited traffic noise and few TV channels, but excellent Wi-Fi. Spotless bathroom and quiet, serene atmosphere. We camped at Smoky Bear Campground in a Motorhome.

Excellent park and very helpful and friendly staff. Concrete pad. Quite area except for small amount of traffic noise from hay 321. Pool and hot tube close due to October and falling leaves. Only draw back is that it is 10 miles East of Gatlinburg. We camped at Smoky Bear Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice smaller campground that is well kept and the owners take pride in keeping it that way. The sites are spacious with fire rings and picnic tables on each site, pretty landscaping throughout the campground as well. The pool was nice and clean. It's a little far from the main entrance to the Smoky Mountain entrance and Gatlinburg, about 14 miles. Not many grocery stores close by either, and it's on a pretty busy highway linking Newport to Gatlinburg but we enjoyed our stay (4 weeks) and would return.

The park is layed out in an irregular loop pattern on a slight hill. The interior road is paved and the sites are gravel or concrete pad with the electric and cable on a pedestal. The water is clean and great tasting. The cable is only 6-7 channels with poor reception, but we did not come to the smokies to watch TV. The electric is reliable and strong. The pool and hot tub are new, clean and inviting. Landscaping, which includes rock beds, flower beds and other decorations are meticulously maintained. When a facility looks and feels this good the customers tend to behave accordingly. This is a family friendly place and a destination campground with lots to do in the area. The owners live on site and should love to come back. We camped at Smoky Bear Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice family park. Staff extremely helpful. Kids had a great time. Bathrooms clean, but no heat so it was very cold coming from the shower. Very tight turing. because of trees but it was beautiful. I would stay again. We camped at Smoky Bear Campground in a Motorhome.

This is one of the nicest and cleanest campgrounds we have ever had the pleasure of camping in. The hoists were both very helpful in every regard. We spent 3 nights here, but would happily return for a week or more in the future. If you want to stay somewhere with entertainment galore nearby and one of the nation's nicest campgrounds look no further! We camped at Smoky Bear Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We loved this well kept, smaller campground. No trouble for our 42' coach on a nice wide cement pad. Hook ups located just right. Site nice and level and landscaped nicely. There are only a few large sites for big rigs. Owners take great pride and make a point to introduce themselves to see if all is OK. Gatlinburg is a wonderful clean city with unique shopping and close to Pigeon Forge, where we had a dinner show at one of the many places along the strip. A lot like Branson, MO. Would definitely stay up here in the mountains again. Owner provided alternate route for easier trip into campground. We camped at Smoky Bear Campground in a Motorhome.

I might not have the right to comment on this park because I only stayed one night. I had to depart early and was refunded. I didn't ask. Beautiful park with better yet great owner. Thanks again! Will be back. We camped at Smoky Bear Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The Campground owners made sure our visit to the area was a happy and memorable one. The campground is exceptionally clean (even the bathhouse). They have a pool, hot tub, playground, and various activities for campers. I would stay here again. We camped at Smoky Bear Campground in a Travel Trailer.

A super clean and very nicely landscaped RV park with nice amenities. Lots of beautiful flowers. Friendly owners who treated us more like guests than customers and utilities all worked well. Access to and in the park was easy for our larger RV if you listen to the park owners directions ref: getting to the park. Park faculties (paved roads, pool, etc) were all in very good condition. Super clean restrooms. Reasonably sized and nicely landscaped sites. Only downside: its a bit of a drive to most Smokey Mountain attractions and the most popular National Park areas, but we expected that in order to be away from the crowds and noise at the end of the day. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Smoky Bear Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Immaculately maintained park, very helpful and friendly owners and staff. It's a bit of a drive to Gatlinburg, but this park's focus is the GSMNP, and they encourage you to take advantage of great hikes you can get on from the campground. Close to Greenbrier and Cosby (read far from the maddening crowds) areas of the park with trail heads and excellent trout fishing located there. Very nice concrete pull through pads, and plenty of maneuver room for the back in spots as well. Drove through a couple of the nearby campgrounds and didn't think they were nearly as nice and well maintained. I would give this one a 10 if they improved their laundry, it was all in good repair, and the facility was nice, but there were only 2 washers and dryers-think it would really be a problem come summer time. Highly recommend and will stay again. We camped at Smoky Bear Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a good campground but quite aways from Gatliburg. Overall it's a good value for the money. I would have said it's a great campground but like all the other campgrounds that are along Highway 321 the road noise is terrible and all the locals need a new muffler We camped at Smoky Bear Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
