53 Parks near Kodak, Tennessee
Sep 2016 - $33.00
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

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!

This was a very clean, friendly, well maintained park. It has everything you may need, or want. The staff was very helpful. For a small park, it was well worth the stop. - Larry Burkett

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

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

The park was clean with well-groomed gravel roads. The sites are typically spaced for parks having sewer service in a popular area. By this I mean there is a narrow strip of grass between sites. The back-in sites along the river have a great view and most have a very nice concrete pad next to the drive. This park also has cable TV although the picture quality was not too good. - BurrKo

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 camped here for a group camping trip with other members of our camping club. Upon arrival, we had a hard time deciding which direction to head since there was no signage indication which way to go to our reserved site. We had reserved a pull-thru site and it was of good size, but we were way out of level side to side. We pulled back around and were able to set up, but it did require us to use 1 1/2" of wood to get somewhat close to level. The hosts (4 different campers onsite) were quick to arrive and get us checked in and given our paperwork. There were two bath houses close to our site, one up the incline and one down in the day-use area. We had a huge tree over our site, which was wonderful. Our site was very large with a small concrete pad, but it was nowhere close to level. It offers water/electric. If the sites in front of us were not full, we would have had a great view of the lake. The hosts were out and about from early morning until late in the evening, although they did go "off duty" at 7 pm. We saw them out on their golf carts until almost 11 pm, so they may have gone off-duty, but were still working some. The campground was completely full, but was quiet after quiet hours. The bathrooms were cleaned daily, but during the times when the day use areas are in full use, they have the potential to become really dirty. This was not the case this weekend. There needs to be more signage and the dump station is located on the wrong side of the road when you are leaving??? You have to pass it up, then turn back into the dump to get the workings on the right side. We really liked the campground and will definitely return soon. - MerryKalia

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

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

This is our second stay at anchor down. Excellent campground! Clean facility, excellent sites, great views, not a bad spot in the entire place. Bathrooms / showers were extremely clean. New basketball / tennis facility was very nice. Dog park looked pretty nice as well. I would recommend this CG to anyone looking for a place to stay in the area. Definitely cannot go wrong here! - James S21

Very clean, well maintained park. Paved through out, level, FHU, everything worked great. One of the nicest and most scenic sites we have had. We were right on the lake. Took us about 20 minutes to get to Pigeon Forge. - Banker bill

RV Parks/Resorts don't get any better than this one! Absolutely beautiful park overlooking Douglas Lake! Close to Sevierville/Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg, so there's all kinds of things to do and great places to dine in the area. Extremely friendly Park staff and they're continually adding amenities. - tr4petty

The only real negative about the park is that the wireless is useless. If you need internet then you need to go to the store/office where the signal is strong.
One needs to be real careful pulling out onto the main highway as the traffic is terrible. I'd bet that more than one RV'er has been hit pulling our onto the main road.
The site itself was fine. Interior roads fully paved.
Next time, I'd probably look at another RV park that had wifi. In this day and age it's really unacceptable for a upscale park not to have reliable and stable wifi. - minnow
Sep 2016 - $45.00
This is a very fairly priced campground in proximity of Pigeon Forge. Only true negatives were that the WiFi is pretty useless, the river sites aren't really scenic, and the concrete pads on gravel sites are not very well placed for modern day larger rigs. Big Rig friendly. There are quite a few seasonal sites here, but NOT of the park model / "trailer trash" variety. A ton of golf carts running around. Sites are pretty well maintained and very well spaced. More amenities than you'll ever need, including a Dog Wash booth ($10 fee). - Eagles Fan
Aug 2016 - $52.00
This is a very clean park. The exterior (ring) road is paved but the middle streets are gravel. Most of the sites are grass/gravel. We had a premium lot which was a concrete pad, full hookups, a table and a tree for shade. There are several pools and a hot tub. There is a nice walking path along the river which is located to the rear of the property.
I took away one point because they do not recycle and I would have given a point if there was a fenced dog park on the property. - Michael47

We couldn't get into the park we usually patronize, but we're so glad, because we really liked Riverbend Campground. The location is almost perfect for Pigeon Forge, close to everything we wanted...easy access and exit with a stop-light...beats trying to dodge death getting out of some campgrounds! Most of their sites and roads are paved. Pretty good WiFi. Management is more than accommodating, and if you're a gospel music fan, you'll like the in-park singings every week. We feel like we've found a new home at Riverbend when we head for Pigeon Forge. - Tcamperman

This place is better than a 10, first the bathroom shower area is like nothing else piano music plays when you open door granite everything amazing. Game room above for children. Sites are big level and shaded. Motorcycle riding is wonderful up there. Campground manager is right there if you need anything and cleanliness of pool and sites is top notch. Can't wait to stay there again. - Daniel Huber

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
Oct 2016 - $29.00
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 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
Apr 2014 - $35.00
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
