Beautiful, manicured grassy (barefoot worthy) meadow on an active farm. Grass sites are "tiered", may need some leveling. There is no shade so it might get pretty hot in the summer. Very uncrowded when we were there. Single set of bathrooms/showers were clean and functional. No tables or fire rings. - VATom

Did not see an issue with low branches when pulling in by the house. There are about 5 well setup, well packed (with some stone), level, 50 amp, FHU sites as the first ones on the left. Others are seemingly just grass and not necessarily very level. Call to see what is available. I was happy with those first sites. There is no WiFi but my Verizon Mifi worked just fine. There certainly is nothing special about this place but it is quiet and safe. Note that there are go-cart races across the street on Saturday. This can be noisy but otherwise it is very quiet. I would stay here again. - cwier

Big Rig accessible but not particularly Big Rig friendly. Enquired about height when reserving (our Big Rig RV is 40'+ long and 13' 6" at its highest point), was told no problems, but found upon arrival a tree at entrance had low branches which scraped roof of RV. Sites are grass over sparse gravel and exiting requires driving through a grassy former farm pasture with an incline which was wet and left us very apprehensive. Charged $33 for a nights stay even though sign in the office advertised $30 per night. Verizon signal poor but AT&T LTE was very fast. Very friendly owner and everything was well-kept. Quiet at night. I thought it was slightly pricey for full hookups in a grassy field. I doubt we would return. - Snidely Whiplash

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

This is a pristine park with pull in sites for class A's facing the river and back ins for others with river views. each site is concrete slab with shrubbery bordering each site. Good wifi and cable as well as other utilities. Friendly staff. One of the best we've stayed in. - padre

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

Have stayed here before for several days but was only here for one night and will stay here again when through the area. Excellent location for going into the local area but far enough out not to be overcome by traffic. - Jack&Wanda

Stayed here 4 nights while waiting to get rig into dealer for service. The staff were helpful and extremely friendly. Access from the interstate was easy, however getting out of the park one has to turn right then do a U-turn to head back to the interstate. Sites were level and due to low occupancy we were able to "pull through" to our site. Some road noise and some litter but overall a nice park. We would stay again. - Doc Randy

We stayed here four nights in our 33' Class A. The CG is very clean and well kept. On the row furthest from the water are worker RVs. A few of them down on the far end are almost in the undesirable category but we were on the opposite end from them. It wasn't bad enough that I wouldn't stay here again. The staff/owners are all very nice an helpful. Great wifi; very limited cable tv selection. When we arrived we thought - wow, these are some long spots, but after closer examination we discovered that two units can fit on one - back end to back end. Pool was closed due to the time of the year. Very few travelers or vacationers while we were here. Would definitely stay again. The location is wonderful because it's before you get into all the crazy, heavy tourist traffic. Just a short distance past the huge knife store. We were in spot 54. - want2go

We stayed 3 nights in a 5th Wheel. Sites are nice size with lots of pull through and level back-in sites. Campground was very well maintained and clean. Restrooms and laundry also clean and well maintained. The campground is located just off the main road. The office is easy to spot from the road and the campground itself is located slightly downhill, creating a fairly quit remote feeling. Roads and camp sites are gravel with concrete patios and picnic tables on sites. The office personnel and maintenance person were very friendly and accommodating. The WIFI was a little shaky, but okay for simple emails. The location from Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg was good for this visit. We would recommend and absolutely plan to stay on the return trip. - Travel Talk

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

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

By far the best RV Resort we have ever stayed at or visited. Extremely clean, wide spaces and roads. Excellent staff members. Location is beautiful view of Douglas Lake and the Smokey Mountains. You are about 20 minutes from Pigeon Forge TN and about 30 minutes to Gatlinburg TN.
Campgrounds has lake frontage with boat launch, docks, swimming, and fishing available. Also has a pool. Beautiful bathhouse with private suites. There is very few sites with trees but the reason is because of blocking the view of the lake and mountains. The sites on the hill top are the furthest away from the pool and lake but they do have a few trees. - Pine tree

Our second visit here (the first being two years ago), and it again earns high marks. We again stayed fairly near the pool (two thumbs up from our young grandson), but may try the upper level on a future visit. Beautiful lake views, park is extremely well kept, and the staff is exceptional. - Pappaw57

Most lots and interior roads are gravel. Lots level, spacing close with little vegetation between. Lots of kids on bikes when we were here, but relatively quiet park. Good hook ups. Large RV wash facility on premises. - Teb

Price reflects rally rate. Nice park is located convenient to attractions, shopping and restaurants. Ample shade did not interfere with satellite reception. Good Verizon signal. We would stay again. - BigRigTravelerUSA

We stayed for 5 nights in the north section where the larger RVs are usually placed. Very helpful, friendly staff. Pool area was newer and entire park was clean. Close to attractions, quiet, plenty space between units. WiFi was spotty, Sprint cell service good. Most sites are gravel with concrete patios but level. Many large hi-line rigs. - jtlipecki

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
May 2015 - $39.00
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
