30 RV Parks near Knoxville, Tennessee

I didn't heed the reviews and took a chance. BAD decision!!! We were crammed into a spot between two trees with about a foot between each. This was a dirt spot, no gravel, no concrete or pavement of any kind. On top of that, it was on a very steep incline. So steep that I had to put the truck in 4X4 to get into it. Had it been raining or wet, we would not have made it. Did I mention crammed in?! Oh my...I have never seen such tight spaces. We could hear everything the couple next to us were saying, smell the food they were cooking inside!
I've said all you need to know to NOT go here. If you decide to take the chance, you only have yourself to blame...I tried to warn you. - TheTideRide

The park appears to be more of a full-timer homestead, than the traveling RV'rs.
The staff was accommodating, I requested a river spot and they changed our site, not a problem.
Beautiful river spot with nice patio. - Dksnapshots

Hilly and a bit tight for a 43 footer but was able to get in and out of our site with no problem. Had to wiggle a bit to get level because our jacks are inoperative. Felt secure and had a great view of the lake. Would stay again when in the area. - rdb1

We stayed one night on our way to KY. Easy on and off from I-75. Lots of permanent campers. Site was adequate for what we needed. Office man was nice. You take yourself to your site. Some trash in fire ring. Roadways were somewhat tight and we had to disconnect to park our tow so others could get through. All in all it was ok for one night. - gmasharp

Very friendly staff. Easy layout to get around in, but not too "structured" (meaning perfect rows of parallel parked RV's). Only stayed one night, but liked parking amoungst the trees rather than just a token tree here and there. Appeared to be quite a few "long term" residents. - Don Gagnon

The super site I was charged $5 extra for barely fit my 23' camper. The paved pad was above grade making it fits unhook. Campground shares road with landfill and quarry. Truck going by constantly. Most of the trailer were permanent with carports, fencing and junk around them.
The speed limit is 5 mph. I was going slow but owner chased my truck down and blocked it from moving on his golf cart. He was yelling and berating me. It was frightening because I was a woman traveling alone.
This is a trailer park with the front spaces for campers! - Susan Hill

Our review of this park was a difficult one to write because the manager was extremely friendly. Her family owns the place but honestly this is only a hobby park. It was not well marked on the east ( exit 117 off of I-75N and turn right ) side of Raccoon Valley Road. Their park sign is almost non existent. Once in the park the gravel sites were only moderately level ( we needed boards to level). From our count there appeared to be only three 50 amp sites: the others were 30’s. They have one washer, one dryer and two complete restrooms, one of which is handicapped accessible, and one shade tree site but it’s not level. No Wi-Fi but our Verizon air card worked well. No trash cans so we put our full bags in the laundry area. We found, per the managers recommendation, a really good restaurant called Aubrey’s at Exit 112 on Conner Road. On the plus side, this campground was quite unlike the noisy campground on the other side of Exit 117 ( quarry trucks ). This is good as a stopover park but not much more unless some corrections are made such as Wi-Fi, re-level the sites, more 50 amp hookups and trashcans. Having said that, in our estimation it’s almost on a par with the very few surrounding campgrounds and this is in large part due to the very accommodating hostess. Our return to this park would depend on seeing what, if any, of the above suggested improvements get made. - 5thwheeler

Small, quiet park with friendly owner and campers. Was able to set around a camp fire at night and relax. - User1850

A new RV park great for stop-overs or long term stays, just north of Knoxville. Just close enough to everything, but still has that country surroundings. The owners were friendly, the place was clean and neat. A great place for Vol's fans to park. - acresofitems

Stayed here as an Escapees member. Nice quiet park. Sites are a little tight but not bad. No wifi or cable. We're traveling with friends who are in a 44' motorhome and they had sites big enough to hold them and their tow vehicle. We would stay here again. - RayN

The setting of the park is scenic, in a pretty valley with tree covered ridges on either side. The campground itself is basically a gravel parking lot. Sites are very close to one another with one's neighbor's utilities in your front yard. The grounds are well kept, the rest rooms clean, and there's a nice activity center. The campground hosts a weekly gathering of local musicians who sing and play for a few hours each week. Anyone who plays an acoustical instrument is welcome to join in. Our monthly rate was quite good. The campground hosts traditional Escapees who travel in their RV's full time and also working people who had never heard of Escapees, but joined to get the discount rate as residents of this park. Most everyone is friendly or at least cordial. Because of price, location, and limited sites the park stays pretty busy. My Verizon signal was good. Our satellite TV is via Dish Network. There are plenty of over-the-air TV stations but the primary Dish channels are on the Dish "eastern arc." Honestly, a month was too long for us to be at this park. Had the campsites had a bit more elbow room we would have liked it better but it still would have been longer than we really wanted. I'd return here for a week or maybe two, but that's about it. - nazpaz

Rate was figured from a monthly charge. If you plan to stay long term you will get an un-level cramped site. The sites come with picnic tables but there really is not enough room for them. I cannot say cramped site enough. Wifi is so unusable our Edimax router wouldn't even help and the Verizon signal is weak. A positive note, the staff here is very nice, the utilities work, the laundry is very nice and they have a maze of walking trails. We would stay here again in a short term site but never again long term. - Ghettomedic

Our 3rd stay here and it's obvious they've upgraded and made lots of improvements to the park. The result is a beautiful and well maintained park. It definitely shows pride of ownership. We were only overnighting so we got a pull thru with full hookups. Check in was quick. Site was long and a wide enough to put out our slides and awning. No problem leveling. It's fine for an overnight. Cable and wifi were great. Water pressure was good. There's a nice dog park near the entrance. Lots of permanent and long term residents but their sites looked well kept. We love that we can return to this KOA every year and we'll always get great service and a safe stay. We'll be back. - Flippitti

Overnight stop for us....looks like significant upgrades since my last stay. All new utilities, fire rings, etc. Props to the owners for the improvements. - Cousin Eddy

We only stayed one night while traveling. The sites appear to be mostly pull thru and are advertised as Big Rig friendly. We would have to dispute that claim. The site was barely long enough for our 42 ft RV. If the park had been full - it would have been very difficult to navigate thru it. Leaving in the morning was a challenge. If there is someone equally long next to you - or across from your site, there is not enough room to turn out from the site onto the driveway. Fortunately for us, the site across was empty so we could pull thru it to the next driveway and then turn out. We had to wait until we left the park to hook up the tow vehicle. Overall it is a nice location and the staff is very friendly. - rv time

This is a state park, it only has 50 sites and some are small. It would be tight on a large rig would have some trouble getting around the area. For smaller units this place is excellent. You can get lake side sites and even put your boat right next to your site on Norris Lake. Bathrooms were clean and the staff and rangers are very friendly. Plenty for the kids to do here, almost all sites are shady and plenty of room around the sites. Picnic tables at every site along with a garbage can for every site. Very quiet campground with mostly level spots. - Rheatherly

Very well managed, clean campground. Not a "resort". On the cleanest lake in TN. Staff very helpful. Boat ramp nearby as are walking trails. Have what appears to be a well stocked store, but I was there in off season so they were scaling back some on supplies.
Some of the most friendly people I have ever met. Follow their directions to campground. Can be tricky. Boats are welcome and it looks like there is plenty of shore to tie up there. They have a beach area also. - wvbassmistress

About 25 miles north of Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Great place to stay to avoid crowds, traffic and higher prices of RV parks closer to the action. A large field with many sites. A nice section of pull-thrus with FHU 50 amp and level. Wide open with no shade, but great for satellite reception. No wi-fi. Quiet and pretty scenery. - krb

We stayed one night here while traveling through. It's very close to I-40. The hosts live on site and when we arrived and called, a man on a ATV guided us to our site. As others have mentioned, it's basically a big pasture with hookups every few yards, but we had plenty of space as there were many unoccupied sites (the bluegrass festival was the next week). Connections to 50 amp electricity, water and sewer were all good. The hosts were friendly. Not a lot of amenities, no picnic tables, grills or anything, but everything you need really for a night's stay. The area was very pretty, rural farms. You could hear the interstate, but it was not too loud. Cost was $33 for 50 amp, $27.50 for 30-amp. - Maggie420

Good overnight stop just off I-40. Owner is very nice. There is almost no shade so if you use a satellite dish it should be no problem. All sites are grass and require some leveling. Had a problem with the circuit breaker tripping but the owner was quick to replace it. 50 amp sites are limited. Most sites are 30 amp only. The campground is set up mainly for their annual bluegrass festival which is held the middle of September. - MarkandMarty

Courteous ranger. West CG preferred to east. Numerous hiking trails in park and nice visitors center. I recommend park. Sites have adequate separation. - Falco

This park needs some TLC. We stayed in the west area in site #6. The approach to the camping was not too bad as we disconnected our Jeep at the office. The site was not level so we used boards under the front wheels as the leveling jacks could not compensate for the pitch. We couldn't get all the way back into the site as they had timbers that would interfere with our stairs when they opened. The bathrooms had tons of spiders everywhere! You had to be careful bending down in the shower or else you were in a web....I used the handicapped stall as it was the only shower that the temperature could be adjusted. Also used the hand held wand to spray the bugs away before getting in, had to put the sprayer on the rail as the holder didn't work. The screen windows had hundreds of dead bugs stuck to the outside. The walk to the showers went by sites with broken benches, trash and cigarettes in the firepits, and picnic tables that you would need to scrape the dirt and debris from underneath before using. The volleyball court had broken concrete pieces in the playing field...ouch. Simple neglect. ...I don't mind old outdated showers but clean is important! On the good side our site was spacious with beautiful trees! Loved hammocking. Not very many people in the campground which was lovely. - Blowfishqueen

This park is heavily shaded in most areas. Nice in hot weather but there is little grass as a consequence. Most sites are on the small side. There are a few that will take a 35 to 40 foot unit.
Water and electric hook ups were in good working order. Many sites have paved pads. Sites have large concrete picnic tables on concrete pads. There is a playground for the kids.
There is an extensive hiking trail system from the campground.
Negatives: no near by dumpster and dump station is down the road not within the campground itself.
This campground is called the "west" campground. The "east" campground is located near the marina and dam. It is more open and grasses. The sites look quite narrow but will accommodate large RVs. The road going into that campground is very narrow. Caution must be used not to run off pavement.
The road into the west campground is very good however there are a couple of switchbacks that are manageable. - petendoll

In all my RV travels I rarely run across a non-ownership RV park that is as nice as this little (only 55 sites) relatively new gem! The park is immaculate with wide spacious sites, very attractive well maintained landscaping and a low shrub hedge separating sites. The roads are paved and sites have level concrete pads. Length of site fit my 45 ft MH and tow. Half the sites are pull-ins on a river with grass and trees. The view is excellent. The other half are back-ins across the single street with grass and trees in back of sites. Each site has a new aluminum picnic table. Park is about 4 miles off I-40 but about 8 miles from Pigeon Forge. WiFi was excellent and could stream Netflicks. No trouble getting satellite. - Tom Willing

This is a first-class RV park with all the amenities you could want or need. It is small with only one road and about 50 sites. You park on concrete and every site has a large concrete patio. I like that they have a neat hedge row on both sides of each site. It makes your site seem much more private Park Wifi was excellent as was the cable TV. The office/meeting area building was beautiful with comfortable new furniture, a small but modern workout facility and a back porch with rocking chairs overlooking the river. They also have a nice new swimming pool that also overlooks the river. There is lots to do and see in the immediate area and Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg are a short drive away. Highly recommend! - JonnieK

First off, I've stayed here in the winter when the park was nearly empty. Camphost was great. I travel alone & appreciated a safe/clean place. I was a late arrival (8:30pm), plenty of sites open. I backed into the exact one from before. No hello from camp host. He only said it was reserved. I was tired from fighting the wind all day. I asked if I could just pull forward. The answer was "No, those sites are reserved for Class A". I told him it sounded like discrimination. He said I could park way in the back. Due to my RA/Lupus I said I needed to be closer to bathhouse. That was a no go, even with over 14 sites open. I felt like because I was a single woman & Airstream (instead of a class A) I wasn't wanted there. I didn't find him very friendly and the customer service was poor on this night. The guy was following rules or he was giving me a hard time. I left the park. In the morning I went by to see if the site was filled. It was empty! I've never had this experience. I'd say to other women or travel trailers, go to Riverside instead. It makes me sad to write this, but this is what I do for a living. Honest and I hope it helps others. - AirstreamKitten
