This park was recently renovated and the grounds are not the best. Washout areas that are bare and rocky and rutted can be hazardous for those with m0bility issues. The sites are somewhat level and are blacktopped but be prepared with some leveling blocks as they will be needed in most of the sites. The park itself has many walking trails and programs and its a nice quiet park. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Campground loses points for closeness of sites. But It was very quiet, even though it was spring break and Easter. Great trails, beautiful scenery, Great Lake. Lots for kids to do. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground was wonderful. We called ahead and reserved a spot but upon arriving wanted to change sites due to closeness to bathhouse. The employee was wonderful moving us to a better spot. Lots of open space, easy to set up and very spacious. Because we use the bathhouse for showers and bathroom facilities, I was extremely pleased with their cleanliness. Not only that but they were private allowing to lock the door, this is wonderful especially with small children. Lots of hiking opportunities, pool, and shopping. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Tent Trailer.

This is a beautiful little park nestled in the Smoky Mountain region. The sites were small, but not on top of one another. They were shaded and fairly level. This was one of the quietest parks I have stayed at and every site was full. The people there were friendly and respectful. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice little campground. We enjoyed watching the deer come out and graze on the empty sites early morning and late evening. Bath houses were exceptionally clean and well maintained. Limited sites with shade, looks like they cut down a lot of trees. They tried to do some work on the campground and made a mess of it. There are huge drainage problems. Stay at the top of the park because if it rains you will get flooded at the lower part. I would stay at the campground again. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

I just overnighted here and did not get a chance to explore much. Restrooms and showers were clean. The site I picked was pretty short, but fine for the car and my tent. Tow vehicle would of had to have been disconnected if I was in a trailer. I arrived after hours and noticed many of the sites had tags on them indicating they were occupied despite being empty. I finally got out of my vehicle and looked at one and noticed it was left over from the previous weekend. This place fit me perfectly. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 3 weeks and really liked the campground. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The washrooms/showers were very well looked after. Campsites were well spaced with trees for shade. We were pleased to find out that the campground is environmentally friendly with their recycling program. We would come back and stay here again. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The sites are spacious and most are level. They are not all deep enough for larger RVs. The restrooms were not clean. There is a lot of day use of the playground and pool so it is very crowded. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park lots of shade problem is getting a spot. They are a first come first served park. It's kind of out of the way to get there and nothing avialable. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I would have rated this campground much better if not for the lousy condition of the bathrooms. Otherwise, the campground was decent, but not quite nice. The sites were well spaced apart and had a lot of shade trees. Many sites were long enough for our friends' 38' fifth wheel, but the paved pads were not long enough to have the whole trailer off of the dirt, which became mud when the rain came. Even our 24' trailer was off of the blacktop pad. As a Tennessee State Park campground, no reservations were accepted and the park filled up quickly on Friday night; with many locals from what we were told. The campground was pretty much unattended; you picked an open site, set up, then paid in a self-pay station. The ranger did drive through a couple of times in the three days we were there and I did see the bathroom attendant twice. Still it would be better to have someone that you could contact in case there was a problem with the site, the bathrooms, or just an unrully neighbor. The park pool is not within an easy walking distance, probably like a quarter mile uphill from the campground entrance. It's open to the public and even campers have to pay for admission. We didn't visit it. We did ride a bit on some good mountain bike trails; that's a big plus for this campground if you're a single-tracker. Also the boat ramp was just a mile or so away if you had a boat. There was ample shopping available just a few miles away on the Andrew Johnson Highway and several restaurants as well. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a lovely Tennessee State Park. The sites are not huge, but very adequate for our 35' Motor Home. We enjoyed our stay and enjoyed the deer in our yard every morning and evening. The park was only about 40% full on the weekend and about 20% full weekdays. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

The campground is adequate for a short stay but not extended. The bathroom could use a fresh coat of paint to brighten it up. I didn't use the shower - didn't look clean. The sites vary in size and leveling was required. I stayed in the upper sites, lower sites were full so maybe they are in better condition. Park in general is popular for biking but I didn't see many hiking trails. Picnic areas were popular as well. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

I have camped here for almost 25 yrs. The campground is nice and clean, lots of hiking trails and wildlife. But this year I have seen some things going on I didn't like. People were putting out little "pup" tents and registering their friends "saving" sites for them. This is a "first come" first serve" campground. But a week before Memorial Day 2007 we counted 12 little pup tents at one time, and the worst part is..I seen a park ranger put a note reading..."do not use" on a handicap site after a camper that had been there longer then the 14 day stay. The reason was the ranger was saving this site for their friend. So if anyone plans on coming to this campground better come early in the week, or all the sites are "reserved" when there isn't reservations made at this park. Other then this corrupt way of the reserving of the sites by other campers "friends and family" and also by the park rangers, this park is really nice, But I just hate to see this going on here. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was great. The deer would just about come right up to the camper. The sites were laded out well. They were not to close and very well maintained. The whole park was clean and well looked after. The men?s bathroom even had one of those plug in air freshener things. The check in was smooth (it was a self check in). The site we had was level. This park offers a lot of thing to do. We just went there to enjoy our last camping trip of the year. We do plan to return! We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.
