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

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

We were here with our RV club with 28 rigs. Staff is very friendly, helped us back in. We had a BBQ Kentucky Derby Party and used their meeting room which was excellent. We were able to bring TVs to watch the race. They have a very nice, clean dog park. We were in Site#2, across road from the river which is very nice. This is our 2nd stay here. WI-FI was strong when we first got there through Saturday. It slowed a bit, but it was better than most places. The grounds are neat and clean. Unfortunately, it rained every day, but still plenty to do. - TJ traveling

While this cost more than we would normally pay for a campsite, the extra cost was worth it. They have internet that actually functions which saved us money on our Verizon Jetpack. The sites are spacious and several have a concrete pad. They are placed so that you are not looking in your neighbors window and you have a sense of privacy. The staff is very helpful and I would recommend if you are coming to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area and what to get away from the crowds. It is definitely the quiet side. - RebeccaLynn

Great place to stay. Anytime we are near we make time to spend a few days here. The owners are terrific and the facilities are to our liking. May seem a little pricey but the super sites are concrete, level and just super. We like it peaceful and this fits the bill. It tends to be more adult than some. - Steve Clark

This campground has changed owners. It is not the same as when the previous owner had it. I was quoted 34.00 per day over the phone six weeks ahead of my reservation which is the same price it showed on the web site. When we arrived for a six day stay, he overcharged us 60.00 stating ownership had changed and the rates had gone up after we questioned his total. I feel I should have been notified of this since they had my contact information. He also has posted no trespassing signs on the trees on the river. Every person that comes down the river on tubes, floats, or boats he calls the law on the for trespassing since they have to step on his property to go around the little damn. I have watched 8 people get tickets from the law for trespassing in two hours this afternoon. - Denisesharp

We have stayed at this campground in the past and were treated very well. The campground is small but very clean. The bathhouse is also very clean. It is right on the river by the dam which makes fishing excellent. We will stay here again. - campingaddict11

Close to Smoky Mountain NP, Cades Cove area, within biking/walking distance to grocery, restaurants, Smoky Mtn Heritage Center (check schedule for concerts). Most sites are too small for our Class A RV but we did have a couple to choose from when we arrived mid-week without a reservation. Nice location by one of the small dams on the river making it easy to swim or wade in the river from the campground. Tent area and sites along the river looked very inviting. - hahnderosa

The sites are really close to each other. Had to work around personal vehicles to get the camper pulled in. Then all the water hookups were being used by the perminate residents. They did not even offer to give us a refund. - Hkerns85

My husband and I stayed here about 5 nights. The sites are VERY close together. They are packed in here like sardines. They do have a few sites close to the river, but only a few. There is no walkway to the river. You have to walk through someone else's site to get to the river. It is a very small park for as many sites as they have. Some of the parks employee's are nice and a couple that are NOT! You are only allowed one vehicle per site. If you have more you have to pay $6.00 to park on the grass in front of the park. There is no dog walk, just the gravel road that goes around the park and the walking trail in front of the park put there by the city. You have to walk your dogs to the front of the park and use the grass there. There are kids here on there bikes always in the road.The Internet is NOT good. I was only able to connect a few times. When I was able to connect, I kept losing the connection. Finally just gave up. The playground, well I have a better set up in my back yard. There is a pool which seemed nice, water was really cold. We would have left except there are NO refunds no matter what, they will just reschedule your visit. (Like I would come back!) There are lots of shades trees. That's the only good thing I have to say about this park. I was VERY VERY disappointed in this park, I booked in advance just from the web site it seems like a nice park, but once you get here it is nothing like the web site says. We will NOT return. - Melabeem

This is a dated campground that could use an updating of facilities. Poorly run. Several full time/long term residents and as such you get the typical full time site "clutter". Sites are close together. If both sites have campers with slides there is only a few feet between. If both have longer rigs it can be a real problem where to park your tow vehicle at your site. We were able to squeeze our truck between our 5er and the trailer next but it left our bumper only a foot from our step and just enough room to walk between our truck and 5er. We pull a 40 ft 5er with 4 slides and only a few sites are accessible due to length of sites and trees between sites. The bathrooms are fairly clean but dated. Now for our personal experience. We made reservations by phone several days in advance. I made sure to notify the place we have a 40 ft 5er with 4 slides and we were assured they could accommodate us. When we arrived the owners had left the 15(?) year old in charge. She couldn't figure out how to operate the credit card. No way we would fit in th assigned site due to length and trees on the sides. The 15 yr old gave us a list of sites that were available and told us to pick one of those and then let her know. We found a site on her list where we could fit and it was just long enough. We informed the girl we had moved to the new site. She replied "That site isn't available." I showed her the list she had given us. She replied "Someone else called in and reserved it." She didn't know how the site had gotten reserved. Suggestions to the owners: Don't leave a kid, especially one who isn't all that bright, in charge of your business. She was representing your business and not doing a very good job of it. We won't be staying there again. There are better campgrounds in the area which are better run and more accommodating. - Wadcutter

I have read many positive reviews about this campground, but we will not return. The sites are small. To give you an idea of how small, we were in a 21 foot travel trailer and felt very cramped. While setting up I was essentially intruding on the folks next door that were sitting outside. We arrived just after dark. Check-in was fine and off to the site. You cannot see the site number after dark but since the campground is small we found our "spot". Once there, I literally had to back around a tree to place the camper where it was needed. The 30 amp hookup had duck tape on the front of the box and is ground level on a pole at the rear of the site. Did I mention the pole also holds for some reason a full size unlocked breaker box. The water hook up is sticking out of the ground with a small stump between the outlet and the inlet on the front side of my camper. Don't worry I only tripped three times. Even though we camped there in September, it seemed like the Chinese New Year. There were bright green lights on the camper to my left that I think I could have reached out my window to change the bulbs. On the other side, they were of the multicolored variety. And then there were the fire pits. With the sites being so close, you may want to bring a breathing apparatus for use when going outside. It was a beautiful evening, but due to the smoke from both sides we couldn't open the windows. And the list goes on: the Wi-Fi is essentially unusable (good router signal but 75-80% of the time will not load) additionally all of the local cable channels are fuzzy (the others were acceptable).
Now the positives: the campground is close to Cades Cove and my emails were answered promptly when inquiring about reservation space.
We will look elsewhere next time in this area. - Briggsaln

Extremely nice owners and very helpful. Nice pool, very shaded and peaceful. Only complaint is spots are very close together. - Campinrob

This is a great independent campground. Several of the sites back up to the river; we were fortunate to have one of these (site 13, maybe the best one in the park). The staff was fantastic, and there are several great restaurants in the area, one of which you can walk to. Great Smoky Mountain National Park is just down the road. The only down-side is that the sites are pretty tight, and there is not a lot of extra parking for tow vehicles or cars. However, we heard from several other campers that other parks in the area are actually tighter! We would definitely stay here again. - barrettjl

We pulled into this campground without any reservations. We checked in for 3 nights but enjoyed it so much we extended our stay for 7 nights. The staff was so friendly and helpful. They assist you into your campsite. The park is very shaded and located on the Little River. Our first site was a gravel site on the river and it was crystal clear and so peaceful. Our second site was in a lovely landscaped gravel site. The campground rented tubes so you could float down the river. What a great way to spend a very hot weekend with a group of young guys (nephews)! The only thing that keeps from from giving this campground a "10" is the price for gravel sites. Although several sites do have pavers with patio style furniture instead of a picnic table.
Hot Labor Day weekend included lots of mosquitos! Bring bug spray. - Driftin tin

This is a two part rating. We camped in a 45 Ft. RV with tow vehicle. This is an older facility that is NOT big rig friendly and anyone thinking it is should be VERY careful. We had to make 2 very tight 180 degree U-Turns with lots of trucks sticking out onto the road and back in. Not sure where the pull-through big rig friendly spots are but I never saw them. Once in our space with patio was nice. Very expensive - but well thought out. Utilities worked fine and where convenient. No satellite due to trees - cable worked fine.
On the other hand if you have a smaller rig this is a fantastic place for families and kids. Great playground, movies, right on the river with tubing etc. It is only 15 minutes from Cades Cove and definitely a much quieter alternative to Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg. With the right camper this is a great choice. With a large rig that you want to comfortably get in and out, not so much.
Staff was fantastic. Our rig is very tall and I asked them to cut a tree limb we would touch when exiting - did the next day with no problem. They guide you to the site - helpful staff. So overall - good marks if you have an appropriate size RV. - Zoey and Reba

This place is one of, if not the most beautiful campgrounds we have been too. Location if you are a nature lover can't be beat. So close to the park. Cades Cove is 20 minutes, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge are about 35 minutes. Only negative thing I can say is the staff tries to keep it "too clean." We were there at peak fall colors this year, and they literally blew leaves with gas powered blowers every day we were there from about 9 until 5. It is rather annoying. I understand what they are trying to do by keeping the grounds clean, but its too much. Don't fight mother nature. Otherwise its perfect. - 6.4 tow rig

We have stayed in this campground for almost 10 years. It used to be a fine campground. It has gone down progressively since then. Our visit started with having to run parked vehicles out of our site. The campground staff did not properly police other campers parking habits. The 30 amp outlet was too old and would not hold the cord unless it was "jimmied" into place. The campground advertises internet service but it was too limited for the number of campers. The shower houses were not being cleaned regularly and the womens was flooding from the floor drain being clogged. The shower heads and controls were very old and did not work properly. Some of the campers were rude and were yelling and creating a lot of noise during quite hours. This situation was not addressed by staff.
The campground does have very nice sized sites. The sites seem to be pretty well maintained. There is a camp store that is usually well stocked although it was not stocked well for our October trip. They do offer ice and firewood as well.
As I said, we have camped here for about 10 years. The staff used to be really good at keeping a handle on the campers and their habits. It was always clean. Continued maintenance of the shower house has been a problem for some time. - thegrinch

Overpriced for the amenities offered. The pool was closed and their reason for closing it was "ran out of chemicals" (chemicals are easily purchased anywhere). It was still hot (90+ degree heat) and it would have been nice to take a dip in the pool. Our site was beside the river, but the highway noise across from the river was unbearable. The sites were too close with zero privacy. We could not enjoy the fire ring without feeling we were in the neighbor's campsite. Although the employees were pleasant, we will not be visiting this campground again. - Laura WG

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. - F4phantom

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

***Park is now marketed as Honeysuckle Meadows, but signage still says Cove Mountain. We spent a very pleasant 2 weeks here. Sites are very large with good drainage, fire pits, and picnic tables. The park is built on a hill - there are no sharp turns in the road, but be aware that not all sites are level (mostly front/back). Most sites are gravel, a few have covered wooden structures for the patio. The drive is big rig friendly, and a number of spots can accommodate a Class A & toad. With our semi truck pulling a 43' 5th wheel, site #2 was perfect for us. Casual country hospitality here - no big rule book. Great place to stay to be away from the noise of Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. There are also rental cabins on the property. No laundry, but there are laundromats in Pigeon Forge, about 15 minutes away. There's a great grassy area just behind our site where we could play fetch with the dog (important for us). ***If you're driving anything larger than a Class B/C, make sure you drive in from the Northeast, from the Pigeon Forge area. Wears Valley Road (321) is very twisty but it's much worse if you come through Maryville and Townsend. - a_elkins

Very nice park in close proximity to the National Park entrance. We stayed in Wears Valley to get away from the congestion in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Staff is very friendly and laid back. No problem washing the rig and toad while we were there for a week. We arrived after hours and they left a welcome packet at the office for us. We had site 2 and it was very spacious. It was a bit unlevel but we managed OK. Hookups worked great including the cable TV. - RoadtripImages dot com

We stayed in site 55. Very spacious sites. Full hookup. Excellent water pressure. We were fairly level. The campground seemed very well maintained .
Biggest drawback was probably due to our particular site location which was right next to edge of property including a house and a road so lots of motorcycle / truck noise when outside. Drove around other sites and they were much further removed and would have been much quieter. For a night or two this site was acceptable any longer and we would have asked to be in one of the sites on the large loop . - MissAlaineous

An absolutely beautiful park and setting at the junction of 2 creeks. It is tailored to the 'senior' set as there are no activities for kids. We have visited extensively in the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area and, as a result of using local transit a few times - we have visited many of the other parks and, without reservation, I can say that this is the nicest. Less than 10 minutes to Pigeon Forge and around 20 mins to Gatlinburg. Spacious sites, friendly staff - GREAT experience! - Vaughn Horton

New to camping, and loved it. The staff was great, helped with getting us setup and answering numerous questions on camping. Park is close to tourist traps yet far enough out to give the feel of being away from everything. Beautiful setting between two streams, front of park has plenty of shade trees. Firewood is available for purchase, I brought my own with no problems about not purchasing from park. All hookups worked great with no problems, including WiFi ... but who needs TV and WiFi in such a relaxing setting. Our first week long trip camping was awesome due to being in such a great park, looking forward to a return visit. - Sub Vet

Nice quiet park. Fairly close to major Pigeon Forge attractions. Creek sites are worth the extra money. Nice creek burbling over rocks just off the back of your site. Extra grassy space between you and creek. Office staff are friendly and accommodating. Enclosed dog park area. Trolley pickup in park to take you into Pigeon Forge. - STBRetired
