Stayed here overnight as we were traveling through. Would definitely stay here again! The owners are super friendly and helpful, the sites were just right for what we needed and the campground was in a beautiful area. Was easy to get to right off the highway and fuel and food was right down the road. Bass Pro is right there too! - Loving God's Country!

A great stopping place along I-40/81 near Sevierville attractions. Basically a family-owned working dairy farm, that hosts a bluegrass festival in the fall. The RV sites are well equipped, grass-covered and level. Will plan to stop here again. - Dunwoodyradio

Very nice one night stop for us. Called ahead and was instructed to find a spot if arriving after hours and come to office the next morning to settle up. Owner came by site shortly after got settled to verify everything was good, which it was. Super nice people. We discussed the upcoming Bluegrass Festival they will host in the fall and told me to make myself at home and take a look at the festival stage. Easy in and out off of I-40. Will stay here again. - ov1to

This is a very nice park. It's it's right on the river bank very close to Highway I-40. We did not use the bathrooms or showers but I am sure if they look as good as the part they're fabulous. We will stay here again the next time we pass through. Management was very nice. - P Texas

This park tho small, is one of the nicest, prettiest, best kept, friendly (including the staff) campgrounds ever. There is a pool & playground, mtg room in the office & a gazebo on the river for anyone to use. The staff tho older (70s), are pleasant with a good sense of humor & knowledge of the area. The rules, no one w/o a drivers license to drive golf carts, no hanging laundry outside, pool closes at 8, no bikes or skateboards where people typically walk. Contrary to an earlier review I appreciated being able to walk in the pool area w/o having to dodge bicycles or doge golf carts driven by someone not licensed, not looking at someones laundry or trash (you take it to the dumpster). Good to know the staff was on top of things. The street is paved & the sites concrete with picnic tables, grass in front or in back of site, beautiful crepe myrtle trees, and hedge between each site make this an outstanding park! If you don't like the rules, or don't think they were made for you, then don't stay here. This is a GREAT park! - MamaD

Don't blink or you will miss this place! You'll be sorry if you do. The pull-in sites overlook the river. Bald eagle, herons, various ducks and other flying creatures.
There is decent spread between sites and a hedge to add some more privacy. There are trees along the river that provide afternoon shade. The back-in sites are equally nice with not quite as good view. The whole place is manicured and the upkeep seems quite good. Our Tiffin group looks forward to returning.
The is a pool and a meeting room available. Within a short walk, the is the Knife works, Tool Stoe (aka men's day care), a Coleman outlet, gun range and more. It is right in the middle of all that yet it feels private. You can hear some road noise but it never disturbed us.
Don't blink! - jubilee32

Stopped at Riverside for an overnight. Very impressed with the facilities and staff. We have stayed in the area several other times but have now found the campground we will definitely return to next time in the area. Parking pad was fully graveled with a concrete patio pad. Well manicured grass areas on each side of the parking space. Restrooms were the best I have seen in a long time. Camped here in a class C motorhome. - Tiger6

This our go-to overnight campground as we head west. We have not used it to do the tourist stuff in Pigeon Forge. It is nicely laid out with concrete pads. We use a pull-through, although there are lots of lovely river-front back-in sites. The staff is friendly and efficient. The bathrooms look new and are spotless. We were in the section with trees and good shade, which was nice since it was hot. Fortunately there is a stoplight at the intersection of the main highway into town...otherwise it would be hard to make a left turn to head back to the interstate. - mom2wildlife

About 5 miles from I-40 at exit 407 and away from the Gatlinburg traffic. It's acceptable for an overnight but perhaps too far if Gatlinburg and the national park are on the agenda. The entrance road, Boyd's Creek Highway, is a little narrow but manageable. The office staff checked me in quickly and handed me a map. No escort. It's a large park, so some help would have been a plus.
Our gravel pull-through spot was somewhat level. Took a few adjustments with the levelers. Spot was narrow but we didn't have anyone on either side, so it was OK for overnight. Hookups were acceptable. Concrete patios were cracked from tree roots.
Cable was analog with a limited line up. WiFi iffy. Gave up on it.
Our section wasn't really attractive. There were some back-in sites next to the river that were shorter but scenic. I noticed some sites on the way to ours that were very close and very unappealing. People had to sit in their lawn chairs very near the main road.
Pool looked small for a campground as large as this one.
They had a church service on Sunday morning.
Propane was available, but the tank was on the wrong side for us, so we passed on it.
This resort wouldn't be my first choice, but it served the overnight purpose. - User3617

Very nice campground. Sits by the little Pigeon Forge river that flows into the big Douglas Lake, TN. You can hear the rippling water for real. Nice large sites with green grass and gravel pads. Some sites have concrete patio and others do not. There are some full timers but they are in one section against the hill. This campground is away from the hustle and mess of the Pigeon Forge but still on the main road to get there. I would return to camp here anytime I am looking for that out of the hustle of the main tourist stops of Pigeon Forge and Gatlingburg, Tenn.
we really enjoyed our stay twice this summer. - byrdr1

Sites are gravel, two to a pull thru, back to back, and narrow. Our patio looked at the back of the rig next to us and their sewer. Only the riverside sites had concrete patios, the others did not. The restrooms and pool are older but very clean and sparkling, same with the laundry room. The campground is only 5 miles south of the Interstate so you don't have to drive the rig thru heavy traffic in Pigeon Forge. We were able to use our satellite and our ATT worked well. - SGF

We had stayed here several years ago and were not impressed but decided to stay while we were in the area this year. What a difference. Nearly a 180 degree turn-around. The campground was well-tended, the office staff very helpful, the restrooms had been cleaned up and painted and we really enjoyed our stay. The entire area has changed with its proximity to Pigeon Forge and The Great Smokies National Park. Exercise patience - the highway is under construction so you may be in traffic for some time, both getting to and leaving the RV park. We would return. - grandma0942

The check in here is so simple. Just pull in and check and see if there is a site you like and pull into it. The Host will come and check you in. The sites range from very unlevel to somewhat level. I'd say about 50% of them would not accommodate a class C RV. Each site contained a picnic table, a fire ring, and most had some sort of concrete pad. About 90% of the sites had water and electricity. The overall campground had plenty of trees: however, there were plenty of sites without trees. The bathhouses were very clean. The overall campground was incredibly clean too. Thankfully the grass and landscaping was extraordinarily well done too. The dam was a site to see. There were a few overlooks that were great! The location of this campground was super! It was only about 4-5 miles away from several grocery stores and about 5 miles from a major flea market. Lastly the other facilities at this place were top notch too such as the swimming area, boat launch, and the ability to have your boat very near your site. We were only about 50 foot from the waters edge. We are coming back to this campground. - mudhound

Stayed here one night as an overnight on our way to South Carolina. First come first serve and we happened to get the last site with electric and water that was open. Nice setting, shade, close to the water. Mosquitoes were pretty thick at dusk, but all in all a nice site. I do think people are putting cheap tents on some sites to make other people think someone is already camping at the site. I saw at least 4 sites that were set up this way with nobody around. Restrooms were clean, did not use the showers. - tjsprinter

Friday, June 21 – Douglas Reservoir – Douglas Dam Headwater Campground, Sevierville, TN This is a TVA self-service campground. Sixty five campsites and 61 with water and electric hookups. We checked in on a Friday afternoon. First, we had gone down the road to another TVA campground Douglas Dam Tailwater Campground but there was nothing available. Some sites at these TVA campgrounds almost looked like permanents. So we headed back up the road and checked this one out. When we crossed the highway we could see the campground just below the dam and it looked like it was full. We decided to drive down and check it out and we found a small site that we could have fit in but a large RV was at the dump station and had just left a nice site right on the river with hookups. So we stayed the night with a nice view of the dam and downstream. We were lucky to get a spot. It is a self check in campground so we had to fill out the form and put cash in the envelope to put in the box. With a Golden Age pass, the $22 per site was 50% off to make it $11. Nice stop, but we were in driving range of interstate 40, Pigeon Forge and Smokey Mts National Park that the traffic on the highways was busy so I don’t know if we would ever stop again. This is a tourist area and very crowded. The campground was full but it was very enjoyable and peaceful. The restrooms had heated showers and flush toilets. There was a dump station, picnic tables, boat ramp, walking trail, wildlife viewing area, bird watching and a swimming beach (I don’t know about swimming in the river because we found a lot of trash and dead fish in it right in front of our site). - gsnakehill

The rate shown is a weekly rate with Good Sam discount. Not many amenities for the price! The bathrooms were clean but showers were small with nothing but a small bench for your 'stuff.' We stayed in the low numbered sites and it was a long, long walk to the showers/laundry/store. If you were located at the middle or end of the RV park you would have a very, very long walk to shower/wash clothes. Sites would be shaded in the summer at the end of the day if you are parked on the river. The rest of the park has small trees that wouldn't provide much shade. Sites are gravel but the grass between sites tends to hold water & provides a soggy area to walk in. There is a comfortable distance between sites. Although there are 50 back-in sites along the Pigeon River, there were only 10 or 12 that had heat tape for their water faucets. The rest of the river sites had the water turned off to prevent freezing. This required the office staff to place overnight RVers only in those 10/12 sites instead of being able to spread out the users along the river. When late night arrivals came, they were right next door, making noise. The only playground was near the office which was a long walk if you were parked in the middle or farther back. Washing machines were $2.25/load. The Pigeon River was 'ripplin' by & is nice to 'contemplate' in a comfortable lawn chair with an adult drink or two. Wi-Fi was slow to tolerable but they did provide a rinky-dink ID & password for basic security. Because of the wet areas almost everywhere, we would not use this park for a long stay again but it would be fine for overnight. - Drgnfli

The campsites are very roomy, pets are welcome. Love to wake up early in the morning and look out over the lake while the sun comes up, very relaxing. The bathrooms are OK, just need cleaned a little more often. This is a managed campground, so its first come first served place. Was hard to find a spot, people try to save sites for friends that might not come in until the next weekend. We were there for three days when somebody came up and accused us of moving their tent they put on the site nine days prior to our stay, but another camper came and said he had seen the tent get blown into the lake in one of the storms that came through. I do not like other people coming up to my site to look at my departure date on my power pole, but I guess that's all part of staying there. I will go back and try another vacation there, if there is anything available In September. - terryzgt

We stayed here 3 nights and really enjoyed our visit. The view was fantastic from our site which was a signature site overlooking the majority of the campground, and it was also very quiet here. I would have rated it higher except for the fact that the site was not level even though it was paved. We had to use additional pads to drive our 43 ft Class A coach onto to be mostly level and have our drive wheels on solid ground. We were told that the owners were in the process of redoing the concrete in order to level the sites. Most of the sites in our area of the campground were also not level. There is much for the younger children and teens to do at this campground. We will definitely return here when in the area. - John & Bobbie

We just returned from a 2 week stay at Anchor Down RV Resort, we enjoyed our stay immensely.
It is a clean, new RV park, built on a section of land overlooking Douglas Lake, part of the TVA system. The view of the mountains is stunning along with the sunrises and sunsets.
It is a family campground and many families enjoyed the facilities, including a pool, lake, and dock access. Thee are places close by to rent a pontoon boat or jet skies to enjoy on the calm, refreshing waters of Douglas Lake.
As we were there, a new dog park with dog exercise stations, basketball and pickle ball courts were being added. We travel with our Airedale Terrier and found plenty of green, grassy areas to walk him away from other campers - look at the camp grounds web site and it will be obvious.
There are different prices and site sizes and amenities, one to meet your needs, we never felt crowded. As a side note - we started "camping" in our motor home 2 years ago and we learned quickly if we wanted privacy, most campgrounds are not the place to go unless you boon dock or go to a land management facility.
Anchor Down has a friendly staff and great facilities. The bath house actually has "private" bathrooms, each with their own sink, commode, and shower. I have never seen this before. I would also recommend renting a golf cart, although not required, it makes getting around the camp ground easier.
I highly recommend Anchor Down when in the Tennessee Smoky Mountain area. It is a little drive to the attractions of Pigeon Forge, Smoky Mountain Park, and Gatlinburg, but what a great place to come "home" to after a day out on the town. - Indy Glenn

I have stayed here once a year ever since they have opened this awesome resort. The owners and staff are great. Stayed here July 4th weekend-forgot to make reservation for Golf cart- sold out-staff very accomadating to haul you to your destination.Took a one hour tour ($10 per person-new this year) on a very nice pontoon boat-staff made you feel safe and at home. Enjoyed the lake-warm and clean. Pool was very busy. This resort is our "mountain ocean getaway." 5 Stars,again, Anchors Down! - n2camping

Management has changed the Wifi and Cable carriers and the wifi is working most of the time and the cable is awful. Your better off using your antennae...We have camped here many times but really charging for services that aren't there is nothing but greed. They will say the cable is fine and its your system, but when you go buy a new cable and hook it directly to the TV and its still fuzzy, then its their system. - srbuynow

Had a great time. Wish we had brought our bikes. We used the pavilion with our RV club. Excellent. Easy to park as it was a drive through We traveled with our dog, plenty of places to walk him. My only wish would be a fenced in area so he could go off leash and run. Excellent park, close to the mountains for a nice hike. - TJ-Paul-Deb

A well-maintained park, slightly off the maindrag. Turn at light #1 in Pigeon Forge. This park is at the back of a mobile home area. However, the long term units are well kept and seem to be older retirees. Lot spacing is very close with a sunny/open exposure. Site surface is gravel and features a fire ring, picnic table and patio. - MThome

Had a beautiful back in site on the river with level concrete pad where we could watch the herons fish after a day in the hustle bustle of "Dollywood Land". Right in the heart of everything yet removed and quiet.
Bathrooms were older and satisfactory but nothing special. Cable/wifi electric and water were all fine. Good value if you don't need a lot of kiddie amenities or a pool. We would definitely stay again. - Camaraderie

Park is clean. Right in the center of town, so it's very convenient. Getting a reservation by phone is very frustrating if you get the person who doesn't speak very good English. (He's a very nice man, but should not be allowed to take reservations). Park has no pool, but is on a creek. We stay here often. The staff is very friendly and the location of the park is great. - BethAnne

We have traveled the whole United States with the exception of Utah and North Dakota with our 5th wheel camper. I would have to rate this park as the absolute WORST experience we have ever had. The sites were cramped and unlevel. The built in decks were rotten and dilapidated. The whole park just had a dirty feeling about it with lots of permanent residents in rundown trailers. There is nothing wrong with something being old but it doesn't have to be rotting down. A Walmart parking lot would have felt like a Hilton Inn compared to this dump. - dlouroberts0419

Sites are not leveled. Very steep roads, so steep that my 5th wheel hit the truck bed when it got to the top. A lot of sites have a wooden deck but they are so old that I didn't risk stepping on mine. Will not go there again, ever. When we got there they sent a local to guide us to our site and the guy asked me $2 for the "service". - paks

Unclean! The manager refused to allow the campers access to the bathrooms for 3 hours because he claimed he didn't have time to clean them. Park has 1 bathroom but has a capacity of 400 campers. The grounds are dirty and littered and have limited trash receptacles. Tent sites are wired to RV sites, so campers may have to drive 10 miles to purchase adaptors/converters. Office store has limited supplies. Lakeside tent sites have no water or electric and quite a bit of duck droppings. Location has laundry facilities but primitive appliances. The employees SPORADICALLY work in the office, so it may be hard to get any assistance. Travelers would be best advised to keep going and find a nice spot in Pigeon Forge. - ksp
