As others have stated, this is a quiet campground, about 3 miles off the strip at light #3 in Pigeon Forge (Wears Valley Road). There are no bathroom facilities, no pool, no laundry, no playground. We are fine with this, but families with small children may not be. This is a quiet campground. Paved interior roads, gravel sites. Sites have either fire pits or stone fireplaces, picnic tables or iron table and chairs, depending on the site you choose. Our site (#21) was a pull forward site facing the creek. Booked this when reserving for something different. Would not choose this site if we were to return. Site was just long enough for our coach; our tow car had to be parked across the end of the site at the end of the patio, making us feel a little closed in. In my opinion, the best sites are the back ins along Cove creek (#'s 2-16) or the pull through sites (#'s 3-5) although the pull throughs have minimal shade. Sites 15 and 16 are especially long and spacious. We had trouble with our cable and it was fixed the same day we reported it. The trolley comes into the campground throughout the day, each ride is 50 cents. Sites are checked/cleaned each time someone checks out. We would stay here again when we return to the area. We camped at Up the Creek RV Camp in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Lots of touristy things to do in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg...musuems, alpine coaster rides, go carts, mini-golf, etc. For something different, try visiting the Bush's Baked Beans Musuem in Chestnut HiIl or ziplining at Foxfire Mountain. Both a Kroger and a Publix are at light #3 in Pigeon Forge, convenient to stop in on the way back to camp.

We stayed here for two nights as per a recommendation from a fellow camper. This is our second time in Pigeon Forge but first at this camp ground. Very cute. Small but clean and off the main drag but not too far. No bathrooms or shower or pool which was fine for us at this stay. Very pretty setting. Would recommend this to friends and would stay here again. We camped at Up the Creek RV Camp in a Travel Trailer.

Smoky Mountains are near by. Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg are must sees. We also went to see the Dolly Parton statue along with her home town and her home town cemetery. Very interesting. Lots to do.

This is a wonderful small quiet park about 3 miles off the strip. You will have a short trek down a two lane road which is easy with no low hanging trees. My space #6 was a premium on creek side with a fire pit that was CLEAN. Pad was gravel and reasonably level. Site was VERY clean. The trolly arrives hourly so there is no need to drive into town. Wifi was marginal. Thats the biggest bummer about this place and why I didn't rate it excellent. Best part about this park is that it IS off the strip and quiet. It is also located so you can go in the backside/frontside/some side of the park that doesn't require you to deal with the strip and Gatlinburg traffic. Would totally stay here again.

This is one of my most favorite campgrounds in the area. This is the only place we will stay. We choose the Deluxe creek sites in the back with the fireplace, because the sites are so spacious, plus a long back in driveway. There is a creek that you can walk down to, to wade in or let your dogs play in. There is a dog park that is kept very clean. This campground is about 5 miles out from the strip in the country. Very peaceful and quiet. Staff very friendly. All units must be self contained as there are no restrooms or shower facilities. Big rig friendly. Round Table and 4 Chairs on a Patio Pad. We have camped here 3 times and will continue. We camped at Up the Creek RV Camp in a Travel Trailer.

Overall Rating:

Very nice campground tucked away in Wear's Valley just a couple of miles from the Pigeon Forge strip. There are several different types of sites and we had a back-in site on the creek with a patio with a table and chairs. A fire ring is included at each site and the most expensive sites have an outdoor fireplace. The check-in was very pleasant and informative as the office staff answered my many questions on sightseeing the local area. The tram comes through the campground but April, being the off season, we opted to drive to the different locations including Gatlinburg which has paid parking. All utilities work as expected including wife and cable TV. Be careful of the large rocks along the road. We actually struck a rock making a turn which was my fault but worthy of sharing. When making reservations I suggest calling to ask about the available sites since some are smaller than others and a few have a slight incline to get into such as the back-in creekside sites. One downside is that the campground will charge $5/day for all adults beyond the first 2 which is one of the reasons why I can't give Up the Creek 10 Stars. We camped at Up the Creek RV Camp in a Fifth Wheel.

The Old Mill is a great place to start your visit and make sure you have lunch or dinner in their restaurant. There are actually dozens of attractions along the Pigeon Forge strip so do your homework and plan your trip.

Although this campground is small, it is well maintained and clean. It was nice to be able to walk beside the creek with our dog and feel like we were not invading anyone's privacy. Creek sites are worth the extra money. Lots are spacious and mostly shady. Site surface is gravel and features a picnic table. We camped at Up the Creek RV Camp in a Motorhome.

A wonderful campground. It was very quiet and peaceful. We had a site creek side and the running water could be heard from the camper. The camp staff was great and very helpful. The back section had a gravel road, but everyone pretty much drove slow to reduce the amount of dust. The campground was away from all the traffic and crowded areas of Pigeon Forge. The campground was only a few of miles from all the activities. We camped at Up the Creek RV Camp in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here two nights. It is a very nice campground right next to a small creek. Nice distance between campsites. Everything was extremely clean and orderly. Staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. A great place to walk your dogs. We would definitely stay here again. Don't count on your GPS, you will need directions.

Lovely, clean park away from the maddening crowds. Spend the extra money to get a deluxe creekside site. #3 was wonderful! Lots of birds and squirrels that taunted my cat with their antics. Spacious sites with trees and shrubs planted to give more privacy. Internet was adequate. No laundry room. The appeal of this park is the natural beauty as opposed to structures. No pool. We would definitely come back if we are in the area. We camped at Up the Creek RV Camp in a Fifth Wheel.

An absolutely beautiful park and setting at the junction of 2 creeks. It is tailored to the 'senior' set as there are no activities for kids. We have visited extensively in the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area and, as a result of using local transit a few times - we have visited many of the other parks and, without reservation, I can say that this is the nicest. Less than 10 minutes to Pigeon Forge and around 20 mins to Gatlinburg. Spacious sites, friendly staff - GREAT experience! We camped at Up the Creek RV Camp in a Fifth Wheel.

New to camping, and loved it. The staff was great, helped with getting us setup and answering numerous questions on camping. Park is close to tourist traps yet far enough out to give the feel of being away from everything. Beautiful setting between two streams, front of park has plenty of shade trees. Firewood is available for purchase, I brought my own with no problems about not purchasing from park. All hookups worked great with no problems, including WiFi ... but who needs TV and WiFi in such a relaxing setting. Our first week long trip camping was awesome due to being in such a great park, looking forward to a return visit. We camped at Up the Creek RV Camp in a Fifth Wheel.
