This is a decent park. Hookups work well, but 50 amp sites are minimal and are mostly by the road. Cell service is extremely poor, and you have to use the park's Internet. Over all, we felt it was overpriced at $60 a night. There are a couple of things you may want to be aware of before considering this park. First, our GPS advised us we were over weight when we crossed their bridge, and we only have a 32' class A with toad. Second, management has a no refund policy period. My mother passed away in Colorado, which necessitated our leaving a day early. The manager, apparently the only person who can waive the no refund policy, refused to talk to us. Finally, do not expect guests to visit while you are at the park unless you want to pay $3 per person for the "privilege" of entering the park. We will never return to this park, although we will return to Townsend. We camped at Tremont Outdoor Resort in a Motorhome.
Our site was next to the river and was large enough for our 43'motorhome. It was a little noisy when the motorcycles travel by on the main road. The lady who made our reservation and checked us in was very nice, but there was one male employee who gave himself the title "parking pass nazi." One afternoon we had friends drop us off near our site. They stayed long enough for us to get out of their car and say goodbye. The male employee immediately pulled up on his golf cart and took this opportunity to interfere with our goodbyes to flaunt the micro power his employer gave him to tell our friends they had to move their car because someone needed to park their RV in the space next to us. He was certainly right. Someone did come in - two days later. I know every RV park needs rules, but the operators should make every effort to insure their guests feel welcomed and not treated like they are either not wanted or a problem. I think it has been eight years since we last stayed at this park. This definitely left a poor impression for a return visit. The only other negative was the poor cellular coverage (Verizon) which was not the fault of the park. I would give them one more chance. We camped at Tremont Outdoor Resort in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and the Cades Cove area.
Came here to visit Great Smoky National Park. We were very happy with our stay and the accommodations. We did a lot of research before booking our visit and decided to stay in Townsend instead of Gatlinburg. We were not disappointed. We stayed in loop A and the sites were shaded and peaceful. Tremont is minutes from Cades Cove and 30min from Gatlinburg. The campground was quiet and family friendly and free wifi was strong. If we ever make it back to this part of the world we will stay at Tremont again. We camped at Tremont Outdoor Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
Newfound Gap/Clingmans Dome is about a 45min drive. We would not drive the river road to Gatlinburg at night again.
The road was loud and the place that housed the picnic table was full of wasp and yellow jackets. We couldn't set up to cook outside. Sites were so close they weren't private enough to sit outside. We camped at Tremont Outdoor Resort in a Motorhome.

I love this CG and it's nice river sites. Especially during the offseason when their rates are very affordable. I've seen negative reviews in the past about the staff, but don't understand them - I've stayed at this CG on and off for 15 years and the only hassle was poor cable service (which is now fixed, and had nothing to do with the staff). Seems pricey during summer season, but it is nice, and very convenient to The GSMNP. We camped at Tremont Outdoor Resort in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Cookout... Most of the local restaurants aren't worth visiting.

We arrived at this park with high expectations. We were greeted very friendly by a lady in the office. We got all setup on our waterfront site and began exploring. There are No grills in this park so you need to bring your own. They had little covered decks out by the water on your site that was covered in nasty spider webs. I am thinking when they do the site check it wouldn't hurt them to take a broom and clean these off. The road noise is horrible. It is so loud that you can't hear the water running in the river nor can you watch TV or listen to a radio outside. We did not use the bath houses but were told by some friends that they were very clean. The pool was open but we did not use that, it looked to be nice and clean. The posted speed limit in the park is 5 mph and that is not enforced. If you are camping with children just know that people drive very fast in this park. They have a small play set for the children to play on that is in very poor condition. It has broken steps on it and the plastic that makes the tunnel that the kids crawl through has come unattached and is a danger for children to get cut on very badly. The cable TV works great but the WiFi is literally non-existent. You will not be able to do anything unless you are up by the office/camp store and then it is like a dial up connection, so don't go thinking that you will be able to use the internet because you won't. I will not camp at this campground again, I will try another one that is close by. We camped at Tremont Outdoor Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Twenty five years ago, we camped here in a pop-up. This time we went back in our 5th wheel. We enjoyed our stay since we had a back-in right on the creek with a covered porch at our disposal. The camp is getting a bit older, as are we, and could use just a little more TLC. The road to our site needs some new asphalt and it can be a bit tight for a larger rig. It is, however, very convenient to Cade's Cove and the Smoky Mtn Nat Park. The Wi-Fi was not very good at our site, but we had cable. I would return to Tremont CG but I would also look at some of the newer parks first. For the value, I believe it was just a bit overpriced and they give no discounts unless you stay for a week.

Management at the park was wonderful to deal with. This was our first stop after picking up our new RV. The site was right on the river and quote possibly one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever spent. Tremont is definitely on our short list of favorite sites. You will not find a nicer RV Resort in the area. We camped at Tremont Outdoor Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

First of all I've read some reviews and I strongly feel the person that wrote the sites are too close together or tight, they must be speaking about another Resort.??? They must have been up the road at some of the other RV Parks. I have stayed at 2 of the 3 parks that are down from here and They ARE extremely close, but NOT at Tremont. Tremont is very spacious and a Lovely Park/Resort . It's Extremely well maintain . A Very Secure & Family Resort. The restrooms & The True Laundry facility are immaculate . (Just as the grounds were) we had Resv. For 2 days extended for 2 more. Enjoyed it SO much Resv. For a wk. for Mothers Day and will make Resv. For June and will also Resv. One of the many Beautiful Cabins for our dear friends to stay in at the same time. Note we where Work Kampers /Managers at a 5 Start resort on the East Coast for a few years , so we have True Knowledge., of how a True Resort is to operate. The staff is extremely nice. The price is Well worth it, they are in the same price as the other parks. Resv. At Tremont and you'll ENJOY the nice sites and Security of the Beautiful. Surrounding .

Nice waterfront sites with covered decks at each site overlooking the Little River. Sites were clean and well maintained. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Roughly 7 to 8 mile drive to Cade's Cove. We always stay here when visiting the Smokies. We camped at Tremont Outdoor Resort in a Travel Trailer.
We booked Treemont several months prior to arrival because it was a good experience for us. Evidently management has changed and rates are going up! Very pricey for what you get. In addition, very tight for big rigs to maneuver and sites are poor quality. We won't go back to this place. Too many other campgrounds that are better quality. Bathrooms are clean and there is a nice pavilion. Wonderful river area and access. But if you want safety for kids and room to move- this is not your campground.

The environmental ambiance of the Tremont RV Resort is phenomenal, e.g. the babbling brook, the proximity to the Smokey Mountains, and the weather. However that’s where the term Outdoor Resort comes to a screeching halt. I don’t mind paying top dollar ($32.00 per night) for a top dollar site, but I certainly did not expect to pay top dollar for a less than average facility. My first impression of the facility is that it resembles an RV parking lot... The sites are packed within inches of each other, no privacy between sites, no BBQ grills on any of the sites, my site was unpaved, uneven and sloped, the fire rings are rusted through and the majority were filled with water making them useless. The hot water in the showers was warm and nowhere near hot. The attitude at the main office was abysmal at best. This was my first and quite frankly it will be my last visit to this location. Even with the 20% discount it was less than favorable. I would have been madder than a hornet had I paid the $60.00 per night fee during the season. Plenty of other commercial facilities available which I am almost sure are a better value. Two words to describe this place: RIP OFF!!! We camped at Tremont Outdoor Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Spent a week at this park and enjoyed it very much. Off season rate plus discount for 7 night stay made it very reasonable. I don't think I would pay the season rate but then I don't think I would enjoy a visit to Smoky Mountain Nat. Park during season either. It was very busy in November - can't imagine what it would be like during summer holidays. Townsend is a convenient location to Cades Cove, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville attractions but a nice quiet community to escape the commercial traps. Campground was spotless, staff very friendly, sites had space between them and services provided as advertised. Would stay at this location again when in the area.

We stayed for the first time at Tremont this past weekend. Overall, the campground is clean, well maintained and very convenient to Smokey Mountain NP. We were in a 30 amp site on the river and it was nice to have a covered porch at each site, but I questioned myself if it was worth the price and all the noise. I was well aware of the price before we arrived, but the longer we were there, the more I questioned the $65 a night rate. We have stayed at many nice resort RV parks in the Southeast and this is one of the most expensive considering the amenities. This was also a very noisy campground on the "30 amp" side because it fronts a busy highway that is the main SE access into SMNP. After a few days we got used to the road noise, but I would definitely try to get on the "50 amp" side. I have heard negative comments about the management, but we had very little interaction with them. The only time we saw anybody was the morning we were leaving and we were running late. It was 10 minutes before check-out and they came knocking on our door to remind us check-out was 12:00. It was pouring rain all morning and I was running in and out of the rain to put everything up and was waiting for the rain to let up before we hooked up the truck. There is no leniency (even though they were half full) on the checkout time, so be sure you follow the rules. We camped at Tremont Outdoor Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tremont Outdoor Resort is our favorite Campground in the Townsed/Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area. This is our second trip and we stayed in the same site (by chance) that we did the previous year. Nice wooden covered decks on the river site, no issues with power, wifi or cable - but the water pressure is somewhat lower. You can not reserve a particular site (unless you book for a week), but we request a river access site and have not been disappointed. The pool is very nice, although chilly, and they cleaned it every morning. The bathrooms are very clean, but you need to remember a code to access. The staff does a good job of monitoring the camp ground as we watched them run off some rowdy teenagers that parked in the campground to drink beer and jump of the bridge into the creek! Easy access to Townsend and Cades Cove. Make sure you take your bikes as there are great opportunities to ride in both places. Although the price is more than we like to pay, it is typical for the area. We will be back for a full week next year. We camped at Tremont Outdoor Resort in a Travel Trailer.
