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

What a find! Close to Pigeon Forge & GSMNP but in Wears Valley where it is peaceful & quite. We were there during "Rod Run" weekend and still felt "away from it all". Big rig sites with plenty of room - we could have parked another vehicle or two on our site. Power was good, site was level, restroom & game room extremely clean and nice. Cable TV was not the great but had a clear open view for satellite. It was a joy to stay here and felt welcome by the staff. Not a lot of places to eat but a short drive back to everything. Would only come to the campground from the Sevierville side with a large rig, the road (Hwy. #321 Wears Valley Road) I would not consider big rig friendly from the Townsend side. A joy to have stayed here a week and will return. - Bellman

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

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

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

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

We stayed 3 nights in a 5th Wheel. Sites are nice size with lots of pull through and level back-in sites. Campground was very well maintained and clean. Restrooms and laundry also clean and well maintained. The campground is located just off the main road. The office is easy to spot from the road and the campground itself is located slightly downhill, creating a fairly quit remote feeling. Roads and camp sites are gravel with concrete patios and picnic tables on sites. The office personnel and maintenance person were very friendly and accommodating. The WIFI was a little shaky, but okay for simple emails. The location from Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg was good for this visit. We would recommend and absolutely plan to stay on the return trip. - Travel Talk

Stopped for the night off I-40 and stayed for another it was so nice. Gravel roads and sites are level and well maintained.
Lots of shade but some sites are dish friendly...ask! This park is out of the crowds a bit further south...yet pretty convenient to all and Quiet! Good place to spend a week! - Camaraderie

Campground was infested with fleas and smelled horrible. There was sewage water right behind the campground. Owners were horribly rude. Laundry was outrageously expensive. The whole experience was horrible and I would never stay there again. Campers are packed in extremely right as well. No room to even move. - L34

Nice park close in. Rated them low because their WiFi was a joke. Stayed out most of the time. Gravel pads mostly level. Sewer connection was sticking up and the water connection was at the back of the site. - SMOKE665

This is a big park that has a river down one side of it. The people there are very friendly. We had a back-in, full hook site. The site was gravel with a concrete patio. Our site wasn't very level. We had to place pads under the back wheels on the coach to keep the wheels from being off the ground. The sewer hook ups stick up 8" or more making it hard to get your line to drain. There was some heavy equipment noise behind the campground but other wise very quiet. - chub
Oct 2015 - $31.00
Rate was for 50 amp with full hookups. Driveways are gravel, the pads are gravel, and patios are concrete. There was a shade tree on almost every site. Our pad was long enough to accommodate a 37 foot motorhome and a small Honda. Water pressure was 40 PSI. There were 59 channels of cable TV. There was essentially no Internet access. We had free Wi-Fi service with infrequent short episodes of a one page response. No password required. We tried an iPhone, an iPad, and a Windows PC. There was a picnic table and a fire ring. Sewer connections were screw in. AT&T phone service was 5 out of 5 bars; Verizon was 2 out of 5 bars, frequently dropping back to 1X. - RVTravelerToo

The campground itself was very clean and nice. Pretty lake to walk near. The bathrooms were disqusting. It smelled like a sewer, shows were filthy. This is my only issue with this campground. It is a very religious lication, fyi. Staff were personable. For being a gravel site, it was pretty level. - Danielle R

Traffic is horrible in Seveirville along the main road, so it a real plus that the access road to this CG has a traffic light.
Sites are level, with wide gravel roads. The sites are TOO close together, as is typical for private CGs. The sites with the most space are the back in sites along the river (on the higher numbered side) where there is a large lawn behind the camper. There are several fire pits and fishing benches along the river in this lawn area. Unfortunately, these sites are not long enough for even an average length camper and a vehicle to park in front of it. Consequently, your tow/towed vehicle ends up either on the grass or in the road. The pull through sites have enough length for another vehicle. The CG seems secure. The CG provides cable hookup which works reasonably well. The WiFi provided also works well (not sure about coverage over the whole CG). Power and water pressure were good.
This CG is a great place to use as a home base to do stuff in the area, but is not a "destination" itself. - Bama Camper

Nice campground. Sites were well maintained but were close and there was absolutely no shade. The showers and bathrooms were quite a distance away. They should really have some in the back campground area. The WiFi was spotty at best. Lots of difficulty in staying connected. Had cable TV but only about 25 stations available. - John Borajkiewicz

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.

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 lovely, small park, only about 50 sites. There are 2 rows of sites and the first row is right on the riverview. Beautiful new tiled restrooms and showers. Each site is very private with little hedges between them. Everything is very fresh and new. Easy to find from the highway. There is a Coleman's outlet store 5 minutes walk away, along with several other stores. There was major highway construction going on when we were there so we did not get out to see what else was in the area for our overnight stay. - asanal

This is a very rare opportunity to rate an RV park with a 100% positive review. They were so friendly and the park is spotless. The sites are large, concrete and grasss. Every site has considerable privacy.
It's hard to describe how nice this place is. We sat in front of our coach only feet from the river with grass everywhere. We didn't want to leave home to see the many attractions that are so close.
We found this place as a recommendation from a friend. We had reservations elsewhere and are so, so happy we changed.
We stayed for several nights. It's not likely we would ever be in this area again, but if you have the opportunity, don't think twice - stay here! They deserve more stars. - 02ROAM

Lovely park nestled on the shores of the French Broad River. We drive a 43' MH with a tow and had no difficulty getting into the park and our site. Manager waited on us upon arrival and he was friendly and helpful. Our site was directly on the river which created a lovely view from the front of the coach. The internal roads are paved while the sites are concrete and separated by a hedge row on the sides. There is grass to the front of the coach for the row next to the river. There is a doggy rest stop area and the open field next to the office made for a very nice walk with the dog. The park is very clean and peaceful given it sits quite close to the very busy Rt. 66. We did not use the rest room or laundry facilities. Wifi worked fairly well and we got good satellite reception. We would stay here again. - LvR
