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. We camped at Ripplin Waters Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg within about 8-12 miles. Food fest, ice cream, fudge, taffy, buffets, touristy food places, lots of T-shirt shops etc. Lots of souvenir shops, "resort wear etc" if your into that sort of thing. Good value for the location and good condition of facilities as a whole.

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! We camped at Ripplin Waters Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Worlds largest knife store nearby!

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. We camped at Ripplin Waters Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here four nights in November. We backed up to the river and the nearest occupied site was six away. Campground was clean, staff helpful in leading us to site and helping get backed in. Was a little tight because of the trees but sites are good size, although with a large unit on either side, it may get a little close. There are a large number of apparently at least semi-permanent residents along the row nearest the highway but they are well maintained for the most part. Park is handy to I-40 and the tourist sites in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg if you take the trolley; pick it up at Walmart. Staff gave recommendations for places to eat that were great. Down side was spotty internet and the fact that you have to make a right turn out of park, meaning you have to find a place to turn around to get back to I-40. Not a problem in November but would not want to try it in July. Rate was with GS discount. We camped at Ripplin Waters Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park, very friendly and helpful at the front desk. We were met at our site and again were made to feel welcome. We soon realized that location was a big plus. It's just off I-40 before you get too far into the horrendous traffic through Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg. Tough enough sitting in traffic in your car, but navigating that congestion with an RV would be much worse. Park was clean, and with our Good Sam card the price was good given the heavy tourist interest. Folks were friendly and we went to a church service at the pavilion sponsored by a local congregation. Only problem was with spotty Wi-Fi performance. I wouldn't be in a hurry to go to that area again, but if we did I'd definitely return to Ripplin. We camped at Ripplin Waters Campground in a Motorhome.

Following a last-minute decision to take the camper out on a long holiday weekend -- and to a typically crowded "tourist spot," to boot -- we believe we made a good choice with this campground. Thanks to a cancellation, we were able to get a riverside site (our rate reflects Good Sam for this type site), which proved to be very pleasant. The staff was very friendly and helpful on the phone and at check-in, and a staffer in a golf cart led me to our site and helped me back the camper in, which is always greatly appreciated. Our site was level and plenty spacious for our 29' TT w/ slideout. This campground was generally very quiet (tho it is across the highway from one of the local helicopter tour operations, which is a sound we eventually got used to while outside), and appeared to be well maintained. Our grandson greatly enjoyed the nice pool (well, we did, too), and the adjacent bath house was very clean with good upkeep. There's also a small playground which we didn't visit. The free Wi-Fi was hit-or-miss while inside our camper (perhaps a function of being near the far end of the property), but no issues while outside. A big plus in my (i.e., the driver's) view was this campground's general location -- close enough to the various local attractions, but not "too close" as to be a traffic hassle, and close enough to I-40 to beat much of the departing traffic at the end of our stay. Should we opt for this trip again (we live ~90 minutes away), we would definitely consider returning here. We camped at Ripplin Waters Campground in a Travel Trailer.

My family loved the park. It was clean and quiet. The river site was great. It needs a better playground for the kids, but overall it is a great park for the money. We camped at Ripplin Waters Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The staff was friendly, but the campground is not very well maintained. The grass immediately out our door was tall and needed to be cut. All the grass surrounding our site needed to be cut. Other areas that had been cut were full of dried grass clippings. As a result, taking pets out was messy. The sites are gravel, and ours was not level. This is a nice place for an overnight, but not longer. May be better if you have no pets. We camped at Ripplin Waters Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a water front site with nice grassy area. The office staff was friendly and helpful. The small store was well supplied. I would have given a higher rating but the location was very congested due to the main road construction. There was a constant problem of getting in and out of this park. We camped at Ripplin Waters Campground in a Motorhome.

Good campground we were backed up to a river friendly staff nice level sites. With construction you can only enter the park from one direction and the helicopter rides across the street are noisy. Showers and laundry are not close to any campsite. We camped at Ripplin Waters Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Lots of construction on road out front. It’s a real mess right now but should be much nicer when completed. When leaving you must turn right out of the campground and find someplace to make a U-Turn to get back to I-40. Lady in office was kind of sour and yelled at her son while registering us. Sites are cramped but fortunately the park wasn’t full so nobody was next to us. The full-time/seasonal sites are packed on top of each other and some are messy and dirty. Too steep to access river. Level sites, steady electric and water pressure. Small pool, looked clean but a long walk up hill from sites. Only one dumpster for the entire park which was also an uphill walk. Good for an overnight stop off I-40 but too far out and too much traffic and construction to battle to make this a good place to stay if you plan to go to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Dollywood or other attractions. Think we would try another place next time. We camped at Ripplin Waters Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful RV park, right on the river. The park is well kept with beautiful trees and grassy sites. The roads and parking are gravel but the gravel is tightly packed making for easy driving and walking. The management was friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again!

This is a large park situated on a stream and they have a pool. We managed to get in here just before a major thunderstorm, so I was hooked up before the rains came. There is cable TV but we found the All Stars game using the antenna so we left it that way. There are many stations you can get with an antenna. The internet and TV came and went but I have to blame that on the storm. When it back up and running, both ran well. We are going to stay here 3 days.

We had reservations at another park, but the ownership changed hands and the new owner's were rude. We contacted Ripplin Waters Campground and they agreed to let us hold our Good Sam Chapter campout here. The staff and the park could not have been any better. Campgrounds were great. I would like to see them add an enclosed pavilion at some time. I will also be glad when the road construction is finished as it is a little hard to return to I-40. Was it worth it? YES.
