Very nice wooded campground. Better sites are unfortunately reserved for seasonal campers, otherwise they would be rated higher. Camped in a 33' Motorhome, and length was pretty tight - sites ideal for smaller campers. Managers seemed very nice. - Knox Camper

Stayed in a popup. Beautiful campground on Tellico reservoir. Easy access, and our site was PERFECTLY level - no adjustments necessary. All the other sites looked level as well. All sites appear to be nicely shaded. WARNING: If you google this campground, most web sites spell the name "Notchey" (with an "e"), however the "official" site spells it WITHOUT the "e". - bentrider

We stayed here in Toqua RV park for two nights on our way south. We had a very spacious site with all the room we could use. The RV Park was full on the weekend as we arrived on Saturday night with families enjoying the lake and their boats. There were lots of rules but that's a good thing because there was no junk lying around and it was very clean. Wi-Fi was average speed and no cable TV availability. - Blowfishqueen

The Tellico Lake Campgrounds bill themselves as a "resort". That might be a stretch, but it does allow them to charge more. Yes, there is a gate with a pass card to get in and yes, gates are locked at night. We had good WiFi and over the air TV got all major networks. Spaces are large, level, and easy to maneuver in. Roads are paved and provide nice venue for bike or hike around the campground area. Biggest gripe was of the 76 spaces, only about 25% were for transients; all others are "resort" rented for season (March to November). That makes it hard to get a site for the casual visitor. But, it keeps them in business. Worth the stay if you can get booked in. - Too-wow

We stayed here 5 nights since we have friends in the area. We enjoyed our stay. The roads and sites are packed gravel in good condition. It rained once and there were very few puddles. There are no shade trees, so I imagine that it will be pretty warm during the summer. Breezes off the lake might help. Most of the sites are rented annually, meaning that the pickings are somewhat slim for spaces. We did have a waterfront back-in site. No cable TV, but the dish worked well due to lack of trees. Wi-Fi was somewhat spotty and often would disappear. The entry gate closes (and I do mean close) at 10pm so if you are running late you have to park by the office and hike to your site. You can leave after 10, but can't enter. Overall this is a good campground for either a stay or an overnighter. We will be back. - Scott Charlton

sites large but campgrounds roads fairly narrow. Very clean, stayed during the week so the campground not crowded. Dump station had no running water so bring your own for clean up. Sites have power but no water but water spitots periodically along the campground roads. Sites all back in. - susy1313

This campground is located approx. 13 miles east of Tellico Plains, Tn off the Cherohola Skyway. Sites are large and generally level. Water not located at every site with faucets located through out the grounds. Every site has electric, 30/50 amp. Most sites are shaded. TV reception is poor, no cable or WiFi. Fire rings at each site. There is a large lake nearby for tubing and swimming. Bathrooms were clean with plenty of hot water for showers. Campgrounds were very quiet and peaceful. Stayed here in a popup motorcycle camper...and would definitely return. Price was with Golden Age Pass. - mailman01

Stayed for a weekend for the first time and enjoyed the park. Roads could be a little narrow for a longer RV, but it can be done. Each loop has several water bibs and if you have enough hose you can fill your fresh water tank there. There is also a new loop for the dump station that appears to me much easier to use than the one it replaced. We will be back here, nice to be outside and have plenty of shade. - Helmsey

I love this place. It has been extensively upgraded, flowers planted, pavilion added, all sites have full hookups, boat docks all new, etc. The manager could not be nicer. Most sites are now seasonal, but there are probably 20 that are not. Some of these are on the water, as we were, and I mean right on the water, even with steps down to the water. Many people store their boats there for the season, and their is dock space for you to rent for your boat while you are there. It's a boater's paradise. The seasonal sites now all have matching canopies as outdoor rooms, and it looks very nice. - Autigerinnc70

Park now under new management. They have improved the boat docks (3) and improved bath houses. They still have lots of full season campers ($2340.00) for the season/260.00 per month ) for their season 4Mar - 27Nov. These seasonals (over half the sites) need to be monitored & required to cleanup their sites. The new management plans to upgrade the sites & make them all full hookup. Right now the water sources are shared & there are long hoses running thro the park. This park will be a 10 if all the upgrades take place. This park is located on Tellico Lake about 1hr south of Knoxville. - jwfoster

Pleasant country setting. About 20 min's. to town on a long and winding road. If you want to donate to god, there are 4 religious stations picked up by the batwing, that are 24 hr. fundraisers. No cell phone service, AT&T or Verizon. Wi-Fi up by office only. Rate reflects PA discount. If you want a quiet, removed from electronics CG this is it. If you want TV bring a Sat. dish or listen to the radio and have a fire, as we did. We would stay here again. - phnz1

If you like quiet this place is it. We were here on the Memorial Day weekend, and they had a number of vacancies. Some words about the approach to reach the campground. If you follow the map from the website and if you take the short way in, the road becomes very very narrow for a full width bus (102"). Our 36' MH used every bit of our lane and some of the on coming lane going around the tight corners. If you take a wrong turn and go off on a side road you will probably have to back all the way back out. I used our GPS and input the intersections for Joe Brown Rd and Hanging Dog Rd, , Hanging Dog Rd and Beaver Dam Rd, and Beaver Dam Rd and Horton Rd. all in Murphy, NC, and got there just fine. If you're driving anything longer than 36' you may want to take the long way in because the road is wider and not as many tight turns. However, it has restricted single lane bridges, and you might call and find out what the load limits are. We paid $31.50 for a 50 amp full hook up site with tax. The roads and sites are gravel and a longer coach may have trouble getting level in the available 50 amp sites. You are about 15 miles from the town of Murphy so have your provisions. Propane and gasoline are available on site. Wi-Fi works OK. Verizion MiFi and cell phone work poorly. Showers are great. All in all a good park that's a bit out of the way; make sure you call before you drive all the way in. The 30 amp sites are along a very small creek with good shade. 50 amp sites do not have any shade yet. Give it about 15 yrs for the trees to grow up. - pumper9x9

A true hidden gem that you should not miss at this PA price! 12 miles of curvy, narrow (but extremely quiet) road takes you to the CG. CG roads well maintained and wide (no problem with maneuvering our 29' MH with Ford Ranger in tow). Camp sites range from full RV hook-ups (no pull throughs) to primitive tent sites. All sites have picnic tables and fire rings, and are adjacent to creek that encircles the CG. Sites are large and immaculate. Clean facilities and 8 private bathrooms! Huge grass areas and playgrounds for the kids as well as a run-through fountain for the hot days. A large pavilion and cabins are available. Cabins look very nice (we peeked through the windows). A workshop is available for rent (didn't check it out, but supposedly fully equipped) at $20/hour. Gasoline and propane are sold here. We will definitely be back! - Full-Time Roamers

This is a large campground near the Cades Cove Loop Trail in the Great Smoky Mountains Park. It has NO CELL service at all, but is a beautiful getaway, with loads of families and scouting groups enjoying the park. - JBick

Primitive camping with a big helping of nature. There are no showers, no electricity, no cell phone service. They do have bathrooms, which due to high traffic are never very clean. The place is pretty crowded. All this is made more than tolerable by the beauty of the park, the many things to do, and the abundance of wildlife. We saw deer, coyotes, rabbits, even a bear. Will definitely be returning. - Rebbil

I have mixed feelings about this campground. It is in the middle of the forest yet there was lots of traffic coming through the area to drive the circle around the campground.
Our site was smallish but adequate. The site had not been blown off and so there was lots of leaves and tree debris, looked unkept. The worst part to us was the cement logs and barriers along the road, the sides of the sites and the back of the sites. I think this deters from the ambiance of the park as well as making it difficult to park into some sites.
It has no services so we brought our own water tank full, empty gray and black tanks and a generator. We also came w a full refrigerator and freezer as a large grocery is not convenient.
The circle road is only closed to traffic on Wed/Sat early mornings. I think it should be closed more for bike traffic, suggest Sun. There were a great many bikers when we were there, along w many walkers. The Visitors center is half way around and does not have any drinks so make sure you have your own with you. With all the stops we made, seeing historic cabins and other sites, it took us about 3 hours to do the loop, getting off just as auto traffic was approaching. More info in tips... - twotimes

This park is 7 miles off I 75. It is clean with paved and large grassy areas. We had a full hook up pull thru site It was level grass and gravel. Attendant is super sweet and helpful. Office is a bit odd location. She met us pulling in though. Many staying here are extended stay burn not trailer trash. Things are kept nice. The park is quiet. I would stay here again. - petendoll

Gravel interior with a wicked angled speed bump-watch your cabinets-they will fly open!! Large beautiful, spacious and shaded site with lounge chairs and grill. Good cable but Wifi is a bit slow. We stayed one night in a motor home-would stay again. - runamuka

Level grass sites with level well maintained gravel pads and roads. Good WiFi and cable, clean laundry. Park boarders the Little River across a large grass field. Some sites have shade. They have a very noisy rooster!! The new owners are pleasant and helpful. Stayed a month-would stay again. - runamuka
May 2016 - $45.00
The sites are well maintained. Each one has a picnic table and a fire pit. The management was friendly and helpful. Campground is close to highway but you cannot see it and rarely hear it. The view of the mountains was lovely, and they have walking trails along the river. The bath house was kept clean, the showers were nice and hot, and best of all -private shower/bathrooms! The pads and driveways are gravel. We were in a 21' travel trailer and the pad was long enough for our trailer and truck to fit comfortably. - Rebbil

Don't plan on getting any sleep at this campground. Evidently there is a rooster that lives there and it starts crowing at about 4:30AM and goes incessantly for three to four hours strait. Lot spacing was nearby with a sunny/open exposure. Site surface is gravel featuring a fire ring and picnic table. - LoveCamping2000

Our stay here was good. Big Meadows was very clean and well maintained. The turns in and out of the aisles are a little tight for a 45 footer. This is the only reason for the 9. The proximity to The Smoky's & Pigeon Forge is excellent. It's close enough to be handy and far enough to be on the quiet side. Everyone was friendly and nice, the staff was always out working making the place look good.
Beware, if you are out past curfew, the gates lock and you have to park outside and walk in. It's a little weird being locked out of the place if you are not back before curfew, but we're not out after midnight anyway.
Will definitely stay here again. - -Stony-

Arrived on Friday, departed on Sunday for a 2 day stay. It is not a large campground although was clean and orderly. Rules and regulations are strictly enforced. Must have a pass code to enter--very secure. Extra auto costs $3.00 extra per day. Campground is adjoining "River Rat" tubing and hundreds of people take advantage of the river tubing-especially on hot days. Therefore, during warm months, expect lots of people-particularly on the weekend. I recommend going through the week, if possible. Townsend is a very quiet town with not many things to do for entertainment; therefore, I suggest using this campground for R&R through the week if that's what you are looking for. There is no swimming pool -- just a kids small sand playground and wading playground. No tents allowed. Owners were nice and kept the grounds clean and welcoming. An ideal place for a couple looking for R&R or if you have kids and you like river tubing. - CJfromTN

Our experience was very pleasant. Staff was very helpful.
Was very easy to back in. No limbs in the way. Was left clean from previous camper.
View of the small river across the street.
This was our first trip ever in a travel trailer and our first trip in our new unit. I would recommend this park very highly. We have already made reservations for next year!! - TJ traveling
