54 Parks near Kodak, Tennessee
Oct 2016 - $33.00
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

We have enjoyed this area before but Our first stay at this RV park. Can't add much that hasn't been mentioned already. We were here almost a week in site #22 and treasured every single day. We chose a site that overlooks the water and just loved sitting outside with the view. Location is great just a few miles off 40. If I had any complaint water sites pitch a tad more than necessary toward the river. Since they are pull in the front of the coach can be higher than I would prefer after leveling. I wouldn't lower from a perfect score because of that just an observation. Anyway, staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We will return to this RV park again. - Two Jayhawks

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

We were in site 52, towards the front of the campground. Most of the sites are pull-through, FHU on gravel with grass between, table & shaded, cable (analog, used antenna for HD), great WiFi. Long enough to get truck & travel. Neighbors nearby but enough room. I preferred the sites in the back. Some of them back to the river. Seasonals are neat & clean. Cabins & Park homes. - jcpjane

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

Sparkling clean laundry and bath house! Very friendly hosts, wonderful and a pleasure to talk with. Sites are a little narrow but easy to access. Grounds well kept. - travelcade
Oct 2016 - $37.00
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

This campground is located just northeast of Sevierville, approx. 3-5 miles from I-40. Signs were posted and easy to follow. Campground has 3 hosts that rotate days on. Check in was simple (had reservations). Had 19 reserved, but when we arrived noticed that 2 sites butted up to each other. They gladly moved us to a pullthru. Sites were gravel and concrete pad. However, depending how your site is laid out and how you pull into your site the concrete pad ended up under our camper. That was not a problem, just helped when putting the jacks down. The leaves were falling during our stay and the hosts blowed the leaves from the roadway and the campsites daily. Campground was spotless and nicely mowed. There are 3 bathrooms/showers in the campground. One bathhouse is individual so you can lock the door, it is an all in one type (toilet, shower and sink). Showers were hot. Only negative was they are the push button type, but not a big deal to me. The hosts said they had to go to this type due to people leaving the showers running. Beautiful view of the lake at most of the sites. There are two loops. One section has a lower section where the sites are right on the lake. These sites are sloped then level off. Check the website and it describes each site. It is a 10-20 minute drive into Sevierville/Pigeon Forge depending on traffic. The road in from the campground is a little curvy but nothing major. We will diffently will return to this campground. - Gary Stanton

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

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 a new and pristine RV park on the shore of Lake George. The park is immaculate and I do mean that sincerely. As in WoW! We stayed in a premium waterfront back-in site with a fire ring. If you choose a site with a "fireplace," expect a custom hearth etc.; each one is a bit different. Nice but we like the fire ring built into the patio.
They spent a lot of money and worked hard to terrace the park down from the hilltop to reasonable level above the waterline. If you are concerned about watersports, swimming, boating, you should check the Lake George web site for seasonal water levels. The water level fluctuates by as much as 50 feet and, based on the most recent three years, it is high and usable during the summer months but low and not accessible from the park during the winter months. We planned to kayak but I simply cannot carry two kayaks up and down that long ramp.
The roads are asphalt, the pads are concrete, the space between sites is gravel. The sites are level. The views are fantastic with the water and the Smoky Mountains in the distance.
The only area with trees are sites 1-29 and 30-36 and those are just on the ends of the sites. If you are a back unit like us, sites 20-29 are on the top of the hill with a great view but you do also overlook the rest of the campground. Sites 81-124 are on the same level so you will not have the same great views.
We have not heard of "buddy sites" before but they have them here. The idea is to park on pull-in and one back-in side by side. Your patios face each other and you typically share a fire ring or fireplace. Nice if you have a buddy.
The location is a 20 minute drive to Pigeon Forge and about an hour to the visitor center for Great Smoky Mountain National Park.
The bath house, dog park, and courts are nice but not conveniently located.
The staff were friendly and professional.
Folks this isn't cheap but it is very nice. We will stay here again!! - Moe and Flo are on the go

This place is amazing. Very clean , friendly staff and stunning views. I've seen others complain about having to use jack pads but I understand the reasoning of preserving the concrete. Yes it's a walk to the lake and quite the walk up but nothing strenuous and you can rent a golf cart if you choose not to walk. Good exercise if you ask me! The owners did a tremendous job when designing this place. No bad campsites, good space for backing campers. Love the different unique fireplaces. Well manicured. Yes not many trees but that would impede the view!!! Can't say anything bad about this place. Camp host are very friendly and helpful. Good deal on firewood. $5 for a large tub they deliver to your site can even text to have more delivered after office hours!! Highly recommend! - Navybrat

This was a large park. We make have appreciated the site or park better if it was in warmer weather. During the day there is a large Quarry behind the campground which the really large trucks are really loud. Our biggest complaint was wifi. Since it was winter there were not as many camper or things to block your signal. We have to say the wifi was the worse we have ever had. They say they have free wifi, but I am really not sure they have it all all. We had to use our phones as hotspots. This wifi issue is a deal breaker for us. I think we may have really liked this if it had not been for the wifi. - flipper

The park is very nice and has lots of amenities. One bonus is that it backs up to a nice river and has a huge area that you can let the dogs loose to fetch a few balls. There are a lot of attractions around (very touristy place) too, even a ropes/zip line course on the property. The people there are very nice but the only complaint I have is that the internet worked only about 20% of the time. This is just not acceptable to me. The spaces are also VERY small. Very little space. Get a space against the river. They are not pull through obviously, but if you can back it up it's worth it. - Candalee

This park is extremely clean and well maintained. The pool was closed for the season but looked like it would be fun when open. We don't have a dog but I found it interesting that there was even a dog wash, for a charge. There is even an RV wash on site. One problem is making the left turn out of the park to get to most of the attractions in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and the Smokey Mountains. Traffic is heavy and there can be a long wait for a break. - MarkandMarty

Nice clean quiet park. Near the action, but no road noise. Nice size spaces. We had a back in, but there are some pull throughs available. Cable tv, but some sites are open to the sky for sat reception. - steved44

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

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
