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. We camped at Dumplin Valley RV in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Do NOT turn left out of the campground. The road gets even more narrow and winding.

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. We camped at Dumplin Valley RV in a Fifth Wheel.

Visited this CG twice in 2015. Both times for the bluegrass music. The camping area was a dairy farm so it is what it is. Be prepared to do some leveling. When there is little demand they spread campers out using every other site if not wider. For bluegrass festival it is chock a block & nobody cares. Best venue for bluegrass we have ever been at. The old barn & milking shed have been converted for event use. Wonderful owners. As laid back country as can be. Could be used as a base for Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg etc. where prices are higher & amenities more plentiful. We camped at Dumplin Valley RV in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Good for a stop over on 81. Bass Pro nearby. Did I mention a bluegrass festival? Nice size. Not too big but not small. Great sound in that barn.

This is a great find. We love going to the smaller parks as they are so personable, and this is no exception. The owner came out and met us and the sites are huge, its in a large grass field with full hook-ups. Water pressure very good, electric good. VZW mifi not great, we only had 1 bar, but that was same in Nashville too, so maybe just VZW. We wll be back here again.. We camped at Dumplin Valley RV in a Motorhome.

We found this delightful park online and stopped for a quick overnight respite. The park had Lots of sites available. We tried a few sites to find a pretty level one, but made some adjustments and were quickly settled. Our dogs enjoyed exercising in the grass. It is close to I-40 but there isn't the expected highway noise. We would definitely stay here again.! We camped at Dumplin Valley RV in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a beautiful grassy park that evidently gets very little use except during the bluegrass festival. The owners really should advertise this park. Sites are spacious, long and level. The park is very quiet. I will certainly be back. We camped at Dumplin Valley RV in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The bluegrass festival is very popular. If you want to attend, you will need to book your site a year in advance. Dollywood and Sevierville are nearby.

We were the only campers here tonight, other than what looks like one permanent. The owner came out and visited - super nice. Full hookups - easy to get in/out. Good AT&T phone and MIFi service. Picked up about 24 stations on antenna. Good clean water and good pressure. Quiet. Would like to come back during the bluegrass festival in September. We camped at Dumplin Valley RV in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Great for a one or two night stay - very friendly folks.

We love this park! The owners were just outstanding, helpful and friendly. The park is a former dairy farm with big silos on the property and all grass sites, about 1 1/2 miles from I-40 interchange to Great Smoky Mtns NP, Dollywood, Gatlinburg, and Pigeon Forge. All utilities worked fine and satellite dish had a clear sky here. No laundry, but several in the area, if you need one. Plenty of room to maneuver, with both long and wide sites. A wonderful find in the area was the Bush Beans factory and visitor center! If we are ever in the area again, we will stay here! We camped at Dumplin Valley RV in a Fifth Wheel.

This is basically a large former pasture with RV hookups. Everything is grass and not a tree for shade anywhere. We stayed here for one night and it is a great overnight. Easy access and pull-throughs but not much else. Area was clean and staff friendly. Would use this for an overnight stop any time. We camped at Dumplin Valley RV in a Motorhome.

This a nice quiet campground with lots of grass and no trees. The setting is beautiful. The host are just super. Very hospitable. Near and convenient to I-40. Close to Bass Pro Shop and McDonald's. I had no internet at my site. I will go back again. We camped at Dumplin Valley RV in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful setting on a farm with a barn and silos on the property. Sites are level grass with gravel underneath. Utilities worked well & bath house was clean. No cable TV, but roof antenna received all major network channels from Knoxville. Owner was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again when in the area.

While traveling back and forth through Tennessee, I was able to call ahead and reserve a pull-through spot for my motorhome and towed vehicle. On my first arrival at 7 PM, in the dark, the owner met me at the office, checked me in, showed me to my spot, and turned the on the water main, as nighttime temperatures were below freezing. It was hard to find this RV Park on my 2010 Garmin maps, since coordinates and addresses are somewhat wrong for this area. Fortunately, the owner's wife gave me directions by phone before I arrived. For future stopovers, I took a GPS reading just in front of the Park and saved it; the reading will bring me in at the correct exit from I-40: N35.99221 and W083.58291. I hope to stop over here again. We camped at Dumplin Valley RV in a Motorhome.

We stumbled across this park looking for an overnight stop and ended up staying the full weekend for the Bluegrass Festival that is held here every year. The place was actually packed and everyone had to share sewer facilities but that was not a problem. We had a great time. The area is all grass but level and easy to get in and out of.

My husband and myself have stayed here 3 years in a row during there legendary Bluegrass festival. The park is fairly quiet as it's not directly on a main highway, but it is so close to shopping and restaurants that you get the best of both worlds. Easy to navigate campground even for your larger RVs and pull behinds. It is a lovely farm turned campground with the iconic silos and barn / gathering hall giving Dumplin Valley a rustic charm. All in all a great place to camp and hosts are such super nice people. We camped at Dumplin Valley RV in a Travel Trailer.

We spend time at Dumplin Valley RV Park each September and have stayed there at other times when we're passing through or staying in the area. Dumplin Valley is neither a destination campground nor a high amenity place to stay along the way. It is, however, a very well kept, clean, and comfortable place to stop for a night just off I-40 or to use as a base for visiting Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, the Great Smokey National Park, or Knoxville. Hosts are friendly people who do their utmost to make each stay a comfortable one for RVers. While amenities such as cable TV, park Wi-Fi, or a swimming pool are not directly available, the open grassy sites make finding a satellite TV signal easy, and there is strong 4G cell service for RVers who own their own connection devices. Knoxville is close enough to make over the air TV easily available. Sites are grassy and level, access is easy, and the park is never filled except during the September bluegrass festival. Dumplin Valley is a delightful place to stay. We camped at Dumplin Valley RV in a Travel Trailer.
