This campground is 5 miles off of main highway but easy to locate. Most sites for overnighters is back in but easy access to site. We were placed in a back in with the river showing outside our rear window. When checking in I saw the price chart for other sites were $35.00. When asked they said they were the only ones available so the rate was $45.00. Good Sam discount but taxes brought it back to 45.00. There were 4-5 $35.00 that went unfilled overnight. Makes me wonder if they did this on purpose. Our site had 30 amp only and there were NO breakers to turn power off and own. Power was adequate. There is a restaurant for breakfast on site open from 7:00-2:00 pm. Wi-Fi was good and a large number of cable channels available. All hookups were in center of sites and easy to access. Be very careful when entering park as a fence juts out and easy to hit your rig. Because of the fence the entrance is narrow. Turns are a little tight because they have placed large boulders on the roads that are low and easy to hit. - Tigggerdad

This is a clean park. The site is pretty level, easy to get to. The park is in a beautiful place, has the river running right beside it & even in March (before any thing blooms) just beautiful scenery. The couple that have the park are very nice & very helpful...enjoyed just visiting with them. They have a small grill that serves a good breakfast at a reasonable rate...didn't eat lunch while we were there. The WIFI is EXCELLENT! Will always stay here when we come back next year! - Melabeem

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

As others have stated, very narrow roads in this park. Very concerned with our 33ft 5th wheel, but didn't hit anything. Bath house/bathrooms out of service during our stay, so can't comment on them. We stayed in spot 14, which was plenty long and easy to back into. It almost paralleled the road but climbed steeply up so that our wheels were about 5 feet above the road. There were two more sites between us and the road, which would have been pretty close, but no one was in them during our stay. Wifi was slow/spotty unless we walked towards site 16, which has an antenna near it. Leaving the park from our site requires a sharp left climbing turn that has a steep drop off if you cut it short. - av8

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

$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

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

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

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

RV park located at a working horse ranch about 6.5 miles from Interstate, somewhat out of the way in the country but a good place for a quiet stay or base to explore this section of the Appalachians. No problem with our 36' Motorhome plus Pickup Truck toad. Gravel entrance road that needs a little work on the potholes. Both back in and pull through sites available. Sites are grass and mostly level. Simple park in an open field. Small but clean bath house. Nice camp store on site along with fishing pond & small playground for kids. The owner was very nice and accommodating. He checks visitors frequently so the park is secure and he makes sure you have what you need for a nice stay. - dscottwilliams

This campground is a hidden gem! We pulled in for a week and stayed for a month. Beautiful mountain views and great staff. The blueberries were ripe and we picked our own. The apple orchard was not yet ready for picking but we enjoyed walking through it. The camp mascot is a pot belly pig named "Miss Piggy" and the campground dog is a little Jack Russell mix called "little man." If you want a different experience in camping try this place: large sites (all with 50 amp) and easy in/out in our 42 ft motorhome. It is about 6 miles off I-26. Park has great hosts! - David Buchanan

One of the most unique experiences we've ever had RVing! This is a working horse ranch with an adjacent RV park. You have beautiful 360 degree views of the Smokey Mountains. You can back right up to the lake, and watch the horseback riding events, etc. It's wonderful to see all the animals, including a 27 year old horse who roams free and never wanders off, and a family pet named "Miss Piggy", a cute as a button pot-bellied pig. This is a real camping experience and one not to be missed if you're in the Bristol/Johnson City area of eastern Tennessee. The owners were wonderful accommodating hosts...we will be back! Oh, and the cleanest bath house I've ever seen...well worth the money! - kakampers

We enjoyed an overnight stay in the campground at this state park. Park attendants were efficient and helpful. Our campsite #22 overlooked the Holston River. Be sure to review sites carefully before reserving as they vary in size, quality and scenery. Some sites are not level. We walked the Devil's Backbone trail and enjoyed the views. As the brochure says, it is one of the more challenging trails in the park but the payoff is worth the work. - CherylRV

I found the park to be conveniently located for my needs. It seemed safe and the staff were pleasant to deal with. The campsites are a little tough to back a larger Travel Trailer into, but the roads are wide enough to compensate. Would stay there again. - Travelforlife2015

Stayed in spot 60, easy to back into with 40', got satellite reception even though surrounded by trees. We had plenty of space next to us with fire pit over to the side. Pretty park with lake trail. Not too far off of I-81, sorry we only had an overnight stay. Sites have electric and water only. - dorcol

Rate reflects Bristol race weekend rates. Very nice campground with extremely friendly staff. We were disappointed to arrive and find out that there are no planned activities on race weekend. My daughter spent the whole summer looking forward to the pony rides only to find out they aren't offered on race weekend. The staff was very nice and created a craft for her to do since she was bored on Saturday. My daughter enjoyed feeding carrots and apples to the horses and donkeys as well as petting the goat. The jumping pillow and playground were a hit as well. The pool is a little small but clean. Our site was a very easy back in near the playground and easily fit our 40 foot fifth wheel. My husband paid the extra $25 for the race shuttle on Saturday. When the race got rain delayed to the next day several laps in, we learned there would not be a shuttle provided for the following day. We would camp here again. - asquared

This is not your typical KOA. Sites are not level and are packed together. Interior roads are steep and you can drag your RV back end. Rate was after I used Reward Points. This was an overnight stop. Will not stay here again. - Bobo Pruns

We camped here in the winter and were among the few non-permanent campers here. The pool, pony rides, restaurant, and other summer features weren't available as well (naturally), so I can't speak to those. Everything in that part of Tennessee is hilly, so you can't fault the campground for being on a hillside as well. We arrived late and left early so we didn't meet the staff in person. That all said, there was something droopy about the place. The roads and sites weren't well maintained. We were on route to visiting someone further south in Tennessee and this was a perfectly adequate stopping spot. - ShoreXplorers

What a lovely little park. The staff were so helpful and friendly. The park is very well kept and delightful. We left wishing that we had time to stay longer. We will stay there again if we are in the area. - Tjai Forster

This was my first experience with Rocky Top Campground. I was impressed. Lot's of positives and very few if any negatives. The pros: very clean restrooms (a HUGE plus), terraced pull through sites, clean 50 amp power, very friendly and helpful staff, quiet location, good wifi, clean dog walk and easy access to I-81.
Can't think of any negatives except that we didn't get to stay long enough. We will be back! - Maddog11

We've stayed at this campground before, so we knew what a great little campground this is. It is clean, management is very accommodating, decent wi-fi, etc...everything that makes for a friendly, receptive place to stay. I'm not so sure kids would have much to do, but that is not a concern for us. Their lower exit does have a bit of a dragging issue as you make your way onto a blind curve road...although, true to form one of the staff was out in the road watching for problems as we left...nice! Great stay...very convenient for I-81 travelers. - Tcamperman
