The spots were very narrow for what we have seen at other state parks. Reminded me more of a KOA or Jellystone. Full hookups were a plus. The bathrooms were single unit shower / toilet so multiple people could not use at the same time.
No fire pit at the sites we had so you either had to bring your own or forego. The site we were at (28) had no shade. Other sites closer to the river had better shade.
If in the area might stay again, but wouldn't make it our destination. - MissAlaineous

We enjoyed our stay at Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park. The roads and sites were paved and level with partial shade. The sites are long and easily accommodated our 32' TT and truck. Most of the sites are pull-through, however I had to back in because of space limitations. The walking trails along the Nolichucky River are beautiful. There are excellent road cycling routes right from the campground. The host and other campers were very friendly. We will return to DCBSP! - JandJ TN Travelers

Campground gets very muddy and the lawn around the sites needs help. Campground hosts (and there seems to be too many for this place) park their vehicles on empty sites. Book your sites online or get what they want to give you. There are trailers there that look uninhabited and it downgrades the campground even further. Not all campground sites have sewer facilities. Most are pull through sites but the turn is pretty sharp. If you have a bigger rig you will cross the mud. Leaving the site is somewhat dangerous as there are large trees at the corner. Backing out could be a better option.
There is a pool a little ways away but does not open until summer.
Lots and lots of ticks....Use caution.
Walking areas outside the campground are nice. Went to Davy Crockets house and it seemed interesting until we spoke to a ranger. They are not sure if he actually lived there. Some years ago they found remnants of foundations in the area and thought one would be a nice place to build or move a structure calling it the Crocket family house. ?
At first it was a WOW factor. Then it was like who are they kidding. Made me laugh.
This campground is good for a night or two on your way to your final destination. Not a place to camp for more then that. The state should sell this area for development with a beautiful Walmart with sites that have sewer, water, and electric.
The Campground, with a little bit of money and effort could be a great destination. Right now to is not. - Edwardj

The park is located in a beautiful farm valley next to the Cherokee National forest. The park has shaded and open sites. The road and sites are gravel. Sites are medium to large. Rest room and shower facility is small but clean. The campground has a large activity building equipped with a wood stove, fireplace and refrigerator. The owner is very friendly. We will stay there again when we camp in the area. - dogwood96

A very quiet, peaceful park. Lots of squirrels, bluebirds, hummingbirds, and even wild turkey. I can understand the negative review of the person with a 40 footer. They need a lot of room to maneuver. Our unit is 30 foot, and we had no problem. The sites are level and have a lot of "breathing room" between them. Very friendly place. We would definitely come back! - Deck & Margot

Very narrow roads leading into this park with tree limbs banging on the top of the coach. We did not stay here after looking at what was available. Park appears to be mostly permanent residents. The sites we were shown were nothing more than connections in the woods. There was nothing to define where to park. Passport states this park can accept rigs up to 50ft. There is one very narrow loop road thru low hanging branches and close trees that made it a challenge in a 42ft motorhome. - Westside

We spent two nights here in the spring, on our way to Ohio - we were so impressed, we just spent two more nights here on the way back. We stayed in a river site (#29 - had #30 in the spring) which costs $10 extra, but to us, is well worth it. We would like to spend a week or more here next summer - it is a little gem of a park! The food in their diner is tasty as well. - rburckhart

We stayed here to escape the Heat in SC. It's a beautiful park on the Nolichucky river. Nice size sites. Maneuvering in a 40 ft MH was a little tight but manageable. The sites right on the river are worth the premium.
The wifi was above average. AT&T cellular signal was -110 to -120db...equal to 1 bar.
Maybe we just got a bad batch but the firewood was the most green we've had in a long time. I'd find someplace else locally to buy it. - DCRichardson

We decided to pay the extra $10 for a riverfront site; it was money well spent! We were in site #30 right next to the rapids - it was quite noisy (the water) but we didn't mind. We will stay here again on the way back to FL in the fall. - rburckhart

First off, this park is nestled into the forest and right up against the river. It is probably the most scenic park that we have stayed at. However, I would not say that we had an overall positive experience. I do think that this park is geared toward tent campers much more than RVs. We have a 42' rig and the drive in was pretty scary. I am still kind of surprised that we didn't damage anything. There are dogs that run free in the park, that are not picked up after. There appeared to be full-time resident tent campers which I didn't even know was a thing. One of the cabins had a Confederate Flag flying from the porch. We ended up leaving early. - glanotte

Before school started back, we stayed in the heart of the Applachian Mountains at this truly gorgeous campground right along the Nolichucky River. Our kids were able to swim and fish right out the front door and we're so happy to have found such a lovely place close to home for a mini-vacation. Since it's such an easy drive from Knoxville (only 1.5 hours away!), we plan to return next summer a few more times and we even went whitewater rafting while we were there! The Noli is just a hidden gem for families to get away. (I almost hate to review it and tell others to go since we really loved the low-key, non-crowded facility!) The road was freshly paved and very easy to navigate our RV into the campground and into our slot. We quickly made friends with our neighbors and a few other families there that weekend that had kids the same ages as ours, so they all want to plan a trip together next year! I'm so glad to have found such a wonderful place for quick weekend visits! - PeachyCreative

We stumbled upon Woodsmoke Campground because our original choice was full. The reviews of Woodsmoke sounded good, so we decided to request a site via their website. Usually when we request a site online from a campground, we do not hear from them for days. Woodsmoke was a pleasant exception, as they replied within an hour of our request. I was able to call the following day to confirm our reservation. The lady I spoke with was extremely nice and accommodating.
Our initial reaction was that this campground was too close to home, as it is 30-35min. As soon as we drove into the beautiful private entrance, we realized that we were badly mistaken with our initial reaction. Just a half hour from home, we felt we were hours away.
The owner met us at the office and politely guided us to our spot and assisted in getting us perfectly positioned in our wonderful, private site. Our site backed up to a small stream, which added to the wonderful ambiance of our experience. The sites were large and well spaced. The bathhouse was extremely clean. It is obvious that the owner's take an exceptional amount of pride in maintaining this campground.
At the entrance to the campground is the trailhead to the Pinnacle Tower Trail. This is a 4.8mile hiking/biking trail. The views from the tower are beyond words! I mountain biked this trail two times during out stay and thoroughly enjoyed it. This is a must for anyone able to make the trek!
Within walking distance (or a very short drive) are a Dollar General store and a package store with all of your liquor, wine and beer needs. The package store had a great selection of craft and high gravity beers as well as the yellow fizzy stuff.
Woodsmoke is great whether you are coming from near or far. The owner's are exceptional, the facilities are phenomenal, and the location is convenient. We have ruled out return trips to other campgrounds after a wonderful weekend at Woodsmoke Campground! You must experience! - JandJ TN Travelers

This park is clean, well maintained and simple. We stayed for 2 nights. Did not use the bathhouse, but did see them on site. No on site laundry. No activities for children, but my kids enjoyed just being outside. Sites are gravel and well spaced. Roads are a bit tight, as stated previously. Our travel trailer is 36' and we found some of the turns to be tight, but doable. The real gem here is the staff. They were amazing. Very knowledgeable, helpful and hard workers constantly on the move bettering this park. The scenery is nice being this close to the national forest. The park is wooded and natural. If you're looking for a quiet, simple place surrounded by nature with full hookups- this would be for you. I would stay here again! - Brownsonthemove

There are very friendly and helpful staff in this family operated campground. It is a heavily wooded campground just off the interstate. The access road is a bit tight for larger rigs. The sites are pretty close together with few or no trees or bushes between many of them. We stayed for 6 nights while visiting family so we were gone almost all day. Since it was pre-season, the campground was practically empty except for us and a few long term rigs. - RichT

This is a fairly remote campground located right at the base of the Appalachian Mountains 12 miles east of Greeneville, Tn. There are no pull through sites, however most of the sites are large, have shade, and a beautiful view. There is a fishing pond that is open to campers. Managers/owners are very friendly and helpful. This park is a "destination park"; it is too remote from the interstate for an overnight stay. The only negative is the narrow winding roads to get there and are truly a pain requiring slow speeds and caution on the curves. We have a 36 foot 5th wheel and it was very scary at times meeting traffic. There is cable available, but only in one section that is taken up by "long stay" campers. Overall a very good campground that deserves a 10 but we had to give an 8 for a lack of cable to all sites and the narrow winding roads. We would stay again. - sweetandlocker

Rock Creek National Forest campground is located in Cherokee National Forest in Northeast TN. Roads inside the campground while paved are fairly narrow. We had no trouble navigating the roads with our truck and 31' toy hauler trailer. Sites are gravel and many are large and deep. The larger sites can easily hold the largest RVs. The old growth trees and thick understory provide privacy for the sites. One loop, C has 50 amp electrical service while loops A and B have 30 amp service. This is a beautiful area and it is usually 10 degrees cooler than surrounding areas. Fees are $20 or $15 with a golden age pass. If you tent camp, there are 5 walk in tent sites with pea gravel pads at the top of loop C. The swimming area is unique. It is a large rounded cement pond with creek water glowing through it. Numerous hiking trails nearby. No reservations here and it is a very popular park. I recommend you arrive mid week to improve your chances to get a site. - linnemj

Well-shaded and very private sites in this lovely, quiet campground. Verizon signal very weak but usable with antenna. Beautiful trails and rhododendrons everywhere. It's probably spectacular in the spring! Ended up staying six days. - mockturtle

Beautiful NFS campground. Roads are paved, sites are gravel, level, huge, and well-spaced for privacy. Campground is shady and cool, nice for family camping. Restrooms/showers could be cleaner. Rate reflects senior discount. We would stay here again. - tnyankee

The park is neat and clean. Gravel sites with grass between, plenty of space between with slides out. They have activities on the weekend, showed a movie at the outdoor common area. Pool looked nice, we didn't use it. Plenty of open space and a designated dog walk area, although some were too lazy to walk the extra 20 yards to use it. The park is just off the freeway about a mile, with two truck stops at that exit for fueling. It was far enough that we didn't hear freeway noise. We stayed in our new 45' 5th wheel and HDT truck, and didn't have to unhook. - Denise and Glenn

A hidden gem! We were here for an overnight stop but will make it a destination in the future. Excellent location. So quiet! Enjoyed the pool and acres of grassy areas. Owners were exceptionally nice and helpful. Very nice landscaping. - User1292

This was a nice quiet park, gravel roads, spots are grass and fairly level. They have a huge pond with ducks, geese and swan. The park looks very well maintained. We only stayed one night, but it would be a good one to return to. Leave your credit card home, he only takes cash. - esta34950

Lovely, lovely park; spacious sites are well maintained with level, gravel pads. Park is convenient to I-81 yet far enough that road noise was not a problem (and we slept with the windows open). As others mentioned, many of the sites are occupied long term but the park is well managed and there was no noise or debris about. The park features a beautifully landscaped, two acre pond presided over by both white and black swans (it had been decades since I'd last seen a black swan) and Canada geese were migrating thru when we were there. The pond has catch-and-release fishing and there is a small playground nearby. The laundry has 3 and 3 washer/dryers ($1.50 each). We received 6 television stations over the air so we did not try the cable service. WiFi was fine for email/Facebook; we did not attempt to stream video. We did not use the bathrooms but I peeked in just for this review. Bathrooms were clean but, as other reviewers mentioned, there was no toilet paper.
We definitely will stay here whenever we are in the area. - Mom_of_Two
