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

Sites are gravel, two to a pull thru, back to back, and narrow. Our patio looked at the back of the rig next to us and their sewer. Only the riverside sites had concrete patios, the others did not. The restrooms and pool are older but very clean and sparkling, same with the laundry room. The campground is only 5 miles south of the Interstate so you don't have to drive the rig thru heavy traffic in Pigeon Forge. We were able to use our satellite and our ATT worked well. - SGF

We had stayed here several years ago and were not impressed but decided to stay while we were in the area this year. What a difference. Nearly a 180 degree turn-around. The campground was well-tended, the office staff very helpful, the restrooms had been cleaned up and painted and we really enjoyed our stay. The entire area has changed with its proximity to Pigeon Forge and The Great Smokies National Park. Exercise patience - the highway is under construction so you may be in traffic for some time, both getting to and leaving the RV park. We would return. - grandma0942

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

About 5 miles from I-40 at exit 407 and away from the Gatlinburg traffic. It's acceptable for an overnight but perhaps too far if Gatlinburg and the national park are on the agenda. The entrance road, Boyd's Creek Highway, is a little narrow but manageable. The office staff checked me in quickly and handed me a map. No escort. It's a large park, so some help would have been a plus.
Our gravel pull-through spot was somewhat level. Took a few adjustments with the levelers. Spot was narrow but we didn't have anyone on either side, so it was OK for overnight. Hookups were acceptable. Concrete patios were cracked from tree roots.
Cable was analog with a limited line up. WiFi iffy. Gave up on it.
Our section wasn't really attractive. There were some back-in sites next to the river that were shorter but scenic. I noticed some sites on the way to ours that were very close and very unappealing. People had to sit in their lawn chairs very near the main road.
Pool looked small for a campground as large as this one.
They had a church service on Sunday morning.
Propane was available, but the tank was on the wrong side for us, so we passed on it.
This resort wouldn't be my first choice, but it served the overnight purpose. - User3617

This is a very fairly priced campground in proximity of Pigeon Forge. Only true negatives were that the WiFi is pretty useless, the river sites aren't really scenic, and the concrete pads on gravel sites are not very well placed for modern day larger rigs. Big Rig friendly. There are quite a few seasonal sites here, but NOT of the park model / "trailer trash" variety. A ton of golf carts running around. Sites are pretty well maintained and very well spaced. More amenities than you'll ever need, including a Dog Wash booth ($10 fee). - Eagles Fan

This is a very clean park. The exterior (ring) road is paved but the middle streets are gravel. Most of the sites are grass/gravel. We had a premium lot which was a concrete pad, full hookups, a table and a tree for shade. There are several pools and a hot tub. There is a nice walking path along the river which is located to the rear of the property.
I took away one point because they do not recycle and I would have given a point if there was a fenced dog park on the property. - Michael47

Management has changed the Wifi and Cable carriers and the wifi is working most of the time and the cable is awful. Your better off using your antennae...We have camped here many times but really charging for services that aren't there is nothing but greed. They will say the cable is fine and its your system, but when you go buy a new cable and hook it directly to the TV and its still fuzzy, then its their system. - srbuynow

The park has pull through and back in gravel sites and cable. This is a nice park in the country and 1/2 hour from Cades Cove. Verizon good, Wi-Fi fair and road noise was at a minimum. Beautiful mountain views. Love this area. - Tim M.
Jul 2010 - $13.00
This is a nice, quiet park about 10-15 minutes outside of Sevierville. The people are friendly. TV reception was hit and miss, but we didn't go to the area to sit and watch television. No playground equipment or pool, but we are retired so not an issue for us. If you're looking for plenty of stuff to entertain kids with, this is not the place for you. But, if you just want a small, friendly park then this is a little gem. We would not hesitate to stay here again. Rate is for CCUSA. - AuntSmurf

We stayed here at Smoker Holler from July 3 - 12th and loved our stay. It is located 9 miles off the Parkway from Pigeon Forge and is in Sevierville. It is only 4 miles from Townsend and you can be in Cades Cove in no time at all. This is a very quiet park with beautiful mountain views. We really enjoyed this park because we loved being able to go hiking in the mountains and didn't have the traffic of Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg just to get there. We have always stayed in Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg and also visited those areas while staying here but found that we loved going to Townsend and Cades Cove on our trip. If we hadn't have stayed here we would have never visited all of these new areas. The owner is very nice and she will even walk over to your campsite to help you pull into your spot if you need it. She likes to make sure that she gives you the old fashioned service that you don't get anywhere else. We found her through our Camp Club USA membership and received 1/2 off for our stay. At $12.50 per night for my husband, myself, our son and our dog. You can't beat that at all. She welcomes you, your kids and pets. This was the only park that we have stayed at that has huge sites. The back ins and the pull through sites. It was nice not getting woke up in the morning when your neighbors are leaving. We didn't hear a thing! This is the quietest park! There is also a nice big pavilion to use for larger groups or just to go up there and sit under for shade or eat at the picnic tables. The work campers are super nice too and will let you know what to do in the area. It was a pleasure to meet everyone. Our son, who is 14, enjoyed staying here too. He liked riding his scooter on the paved road next to the park. This park is gravel and grass, but they are very level. There are many stores, gas stations and a laundry mat within a short driving distance. If you need to have a pool, concrete sites or noise then this is not the park for you. If you want a simple, quiet park with awesome mountain views then this is the park for you! We can't wait to stay here again! - Ladymcgyver210

Top notch! This is very quiet and secluded. The view is outstanding! We have stayed here several times and will again until our park is finished here. Note: if you have an emergency and have to leave early, as our friends did, you will not get a refund! - Debbie t

Lovely exclusive park for class A only. Privately owned sites, not all of which are available to rent. Very quiet. Easy to visit Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and even Knoxville if you don't mind a relatively short drive. There are no bathhouses or showers - not needed, but there is a lovely pool at the clubhouse at the top of the hill. Only negative was that our chosen site was not quite as depicted in the online pictures, however we were quickly moved to another site which was spacious and very nice. Several owners were there during our stay - wonderful people. Highly recommend. - 2retiresoon

The Dell is a small very exclusive motorcoach only resort and many of the sites are privately owned - some of those (and others) are available for rent and the entire park is managed by Hidden Mountain Resorts - Very nice people. The park is gated and most sites are paved and very roomy. You can visit their website and see pictures of the sites that are available for rent. Rental fee depends on how developed the site is. Owner sites have much privacy, pavers, large patios with cooking areas, fountains and stonework. They offer less expensive sites with concrete, grass or gravel pads. Each site has a small storage building, but they are not available to renters. Not all of the private site amenities are available to renters. Check with management. The park has lovely ponds, extensive manicured landscaping and is beautiful. They are dog friendly and management can tell you of other places in Hidden Mountain where you can walk your dog. The Dell is not far from the main road that runs to Gatlinburg (10 minute drive weekdays-longer on weekends and holidays.) It's very quiet and away from the chaos of Pigeon Forge, yet close enough for access to all. It's very near to Apple Valley Farm for dining and shopping. Two caveats: there is little shade, and the sites are subject to a very hot west sun in the afternoons. We stayed for a couple of weeks in Aug/Sept. and ran the AC round the clock. Also, there are no restrooms, showers, or laundry on the property. You must be self-contained and use your own facilities. That said, we really enjoyed this peaceful and charming park and will stay here whenever we are in East Tennessee. - pengman

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

This park tho small, is one of the nicest, prettiest, best kept, friendly (including the staff) campgrounds ever. There is a pool & playground, mtg room in the office & a gazebo on the river for anyone to use. The staff tho older (70s), are pleasant with a good sense of humor & knowledge of the area. The rules, no one w/o a drivers license to drive golf carts, no hanging laundry outside, pool closes at 8, no bikes or skateboards where people typically walk. Contrary to an earlier review I appreciated being able to walk in the pool area w/o having to dodge bicycles or doge golf carts driven by someone not licensed, not looking at someones laundry or trash (you take it to the dumpster). Good to know the staff was on top of things. The street is paved & the sites concrete with picnic tables, grass in front or in back of site, beautiful crepe myrtle trees, and hedge between each site make this an outstanding park! If you don't like the rules, or don't think they were made for you, then don't stay here. This is a GREAT park! - MamaD

Don't blink or you will miss this place! You'll be sorry if you do. The pull-in sites overlook the river. Bald eagle, herons, various ducks and other flying creatures.
There is decent spread between sites and a hedge to add some more privacy. There are trees along the river that provide afternoon shade. The back-in sites are equally nice with not quite as good view. The whole place is manicured and the upkeep seems quite good. Our Tiffin group looks forward to returning.
The is a pool and a meeting room available. Within a short walk, the is the Knife works, Tool Stoe (aka men's day care), a Coleman outlet, gun range and more. It is right in the middle of all that yet it feels private. You can hear some road noise but it never disturbed us.
Don't blink! - jubilee32

Stayed 5 nights. Ground by water sewer and electric stayed wet and muddy the whole time. sudden drop off on site so had no choice but to be in the mud. Site was not level. No showers or bathrooms. Good Wi-Fi and Cable. Lot of seasonal. Owner trying to sell. - Biggyrat
May 2015 - $21.00
Stayed 1 month (nightly rate based on monthly rate). Very large site with lots of space between sites. We pulled our MH straight in and hookups were on the left side which was fine for our hookups but if you had a trailer or fifth wheel and backed it in the hookups would be on the wrong side. There were other sites that had the hookups on the correct side so make sure you ask about the site. Our site was so long that we could have probably gotten 2 motor homes into it and it was easy to get into from paved road. There was a mix of seasonal, monthly and nightly. Very well maintained and mowed regularly. WiFi was standard campground speed (sometimes medium slow and sometimes agonizingly slow) and signal was good. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
I don't think they had a shower/restroom building but we almost never use them so I never looked.
Would recommend staying in this park. - Ramblin On

There's no resort here just a RV Park. Staff is helpful, sites are quite large but not very level. All sites are gravel. No laundry or restrooms. They do take Good Sam although it's not noted on their web site. Several of the sites have the hookups on the left side requiring you to pull in instead of backing in. Nothing exceptional just average facilities except size of sites. Nothing much for kids to do. Cable TV requires an adapter box be installed in your TV coax input to access all the cable channels. If you only have HDMI connections then you're going to have problems. - lllkrob

Stayed here for six nights while vacationing in the Great Smoky Mountain national park. The views from the RV park are wonderful. Wears Valley is just enough off the main parkway to still have the "campsite" feel. The main office is in a beautiful building and the staff is ready and waiting to help any way they can. The bathhouse and laundry were impeccably clean. The pool area was smaller than anticipated, five feet at the deepest end, but that didn't bother us much since the entrance to the park was only 12 miles away. The kids still enjoyed it. We did most of our swimming there. The rec room had air hockey and foosball that occupied the kids. The site we were on was a creek side gravel site. It was roomy enough for our 35 foot trailer and our Chevrolet 3500 truck. Ample grassy area for the kids to play behind the camper. The creek is very small, don't expect a big rocky creek bed, it's probably 3 feet wide at the widest point. The "fishing pond" was more like an old cattle pond and there was quite a bit of litter along the banks on the water. The premium and paved sites are nice and level, however if you spend a good amount of time outside your rig you may want to get the gravel sites. They are cheaper but a little nicer and more roomy in my opinion. Cable hookup wasn't the best in the world, a bit fuzzy on most stations. The WiFi was above average for parks that size. Not strong enough to stream movies but adequate to check emails etc. Overall we had a wonderful stay and we will definitely consider staying here if we ever make it back up that way. - AGCampingCrew

This is a very nice campground in a picturesque valley about 10 miles from the crowds of Pigeon Forge. Clubhouse-style bathhouse is spotless and modern. Very good laundry facilities, exercise equipment and an apparently nice pool which was closed for the season. Roadways are wide, some are paved and some are smooth gravel--same for the sites, which are wide and long. There are a variety of prices because of the variety of sites. One BIG WARNING, which has been mentioned in other reviews (which we ignored). Do not bring a big rig to this park from the Townsend side. The road is very narrow with very steep and sharp switchbacks. In fact, on our way in we saw police assisting a fifth-wheeler who had slipped off the pavement on the way out. No injuries and I didn't see much damage, but a tow truck was needed to get the trailer back on the road. No problem coming in from the Pigeon Forge side. Also, I'd suggest reserving by phone rather than their online res service. We booked on line for a mountain view gravel site and on arrival the system had put us in the group camp kitchen. The friendly manager switched us to site 35, and when we got there found it occupied. He then told us to go to site 31, which was fine. - DrLewie

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

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

Stayed here one night as an overnight on our way to South Carolina. First come first serve and we happened to get the last site with electric and water that was open. Nice setting, shade, close to the water. Mosquitoes were pretty thick at dusk, but all in all a nice site. I do think people are putting cheap tents on some sites to make other people think someone is already camping at the site. I saw at least 4 sites that were set up this way with nobody around. Restrooms were clean, did not use the showers. - tjsprinter

Friday, June 21 – Douglas Reservoir – Douglas Dam Headwater Campground, Sevierville, TN This is a TVA self-service campground. Sixty five campsites and 61 with water and electric hookups. We checked in on a Friday afternoon. First, we had gone down the road to another TVA campground Douglas Dam Tailwater Campground but there was nothing available. Some sites at these TVA campgrounds almost looked like permanents. So we headed back up the road and checked this one out. When we crossed the highway we could see the campground just below the dam and it looked like it was full. We decided to drive down and check it out and we found a small site that we could have fit in but a large RV was at the dump station and had just left a nice site right on the river with hookups. So we stayed the night with a nice view of the dam and downstream. We were lucky to get a spot. It is a self check in campground so we had to fill out the form and put cash in the envelope to put in the box. With a Golden Age pass, the $22 per site was 50% off to make it $11. Nice stop, but we were in driving range of interstate 40, Pigeon Forge and Smokey Mts National Park that the traffic on the highways was busy so I don’t know if we would ever stop again. This is a tourist area and very crowded. The campground was full but it was very enjoyable and peaceful. The restrooms had heated showers and flush toilets. There was a dump station, picnic tables, boat ramp, walking trail, wildlife viewing area, bird watching and a swimming beach (I don’t know about swimming in the river because we found a lot of trash and dead fish in it right in front of our site). - gsnakehill
