Rate shown is based on a monthly rate. This is our fourth stay in this park. We find it very convenient and picturesque when in the area. The park is on the quiet side of the Smokies (away from Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg) so you do not have all the traffic but still easy access to the National Park as well as a short drive into Knoxville. Sites and roads are dirt/gravel with grass and tress in between sites. Sites are sized nicely and they do have one row that has extra long pull thrus. Facilities are very nice and are well maintained. Wi-Fi is free but service can be spotty and slow. They have cable but we do not use it as we have satellite. I highly recommend the park if you want a peaceful Smoky mountain experience. We camped at Misty River Cabins & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Just an average campground. All roads and sites are gravel (with lots of potholes) Sites were rather close together and not much shade. Electric was barely OK (109) volts and water pressure only at 40psi. On the plus side, the scenery was beautiful with mountains close by and a river only 100 yards away. Wi-Fi was slow but it did work. We got there late (8PM) and office was closed but staff was friendly the next morning and helpful. We camped at Misty River Cabins & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We enjoyed our stay here for its proximity to Maryville and to the Smokies. The parking is a bit of a walk to the office and camp store. Friendly staff. Nice walks by the river. We would stay here again. We camped at Misty River Cabins & RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Quiet park with exceptional individual showers. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Sites were level, gravel, and plenty big enough for both our truck and trailer (52 feet). A good location for all local attractions. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Misty River Cabins & RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We love this campground. The sites are nice and roomy. You have mountains on each side and the view is great. We picked this campground because of the location; it is close to everything we want to do. Not far to the Dragons Tail or Cades Cove. The power is good, Wi-Fi OK. It has the best bath house we have been to. We will be back. We camped at Misty River Cabins & RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Clean showers and clean bathrooms. Wi-Fi was real slow and sometimes not at all. Our campsite was near the back and it was really muddy and the gravel pad lacked a lot of gravel. It is a Passport America park for $22 a night. They only take cash. We camped at Misty River Cabins & RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here for a couple weeks while on business in nearby Alcoa. It is a basic park with not much happening, which should be expected in the winter. No trees and the gravel roads and sites get flooded easily when it rains. Mud was an issue. Park is pretty much in the middle of nowhere and we usually camp at Townsend (10 miles away) when in the area, but thought we would try this to save some fuel. Wi-Fi was horrible or I may have rated higher and the owner tried to blame it on the cable company, even though my expertise is IT and knew better. I don't like being lied to. Didn't use the bathhouse, but the laundry was nice, even though a bit pricey. Will probably go back to Townsend next time as there are much better parks there for the money.

We stayed at Misty River over the Christmas holidays, and we loved the place. The campground is nice and open with lots of room. The bath house is the nicest for a campground ever! It has private bathrooms that are clean. I’ve not ever seen anything like this in a campground. It’s so cool; you get the room all to your self. We used the bath house a lot, so we did not have to add water to our RV as it’s winter time, and the bath house was clean every time we went in it. It makes things so nice when you have a clean bath house. The reason we picked Misty River was its location to Maryville where we had family and Cades Cove where we like to hang out and tale pictures. Both are easy to get to from the campground. The sites are big, and we had no trouble pulling right in. The pool was closed, but it looks like a nice one. Now we can’t wait for summer to get here so we can come back. We camped at Misty River Cabins & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

My wife and I camped in a campground in Walland, TN called Misty River. We had an enjoyable stay. We have a 41 ft class A. Our spacious pull through site accommodated us very well. The owner and his wife were very friendly and even provided a roast turkey for a Thanksgiving meal for the campers. Our adult children joined us while we were at Misty River. They were able to stay in one of the rental cabins at the campground. We would highly recommend Misty River as a very nice campground in a quiet, scenic setting.

Once again I was very happy with this resort. They know how to keep their campers happy. We have been camping at Misty River for the last 5 years, and it’s the only place to camp at in this area. We live in Knoxville and use Misty River for weekend getaways. The post below sounds like the bum that was tossed out the campground when we were there. Talking about someone who could give all campers a bad name! What a piece of work! The campground is 1 mile from the Foot Hills Parkway to get to the Tail of the Dragon ( why we love it there), 5 miles to Townsend and 11 miles to the entrance to Cades Cove. The sites are wide, power is good and the bath house is GREAT! We camped at Misty River Cabins & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

A mid-grade campground at a premium price. I had to be in this area for 10 days and this was the only place I could get. It's not a bad campground, pretty standard. The best feature is a huge field that's great for dog walking. As others have pointed out, there are no services nearby, but it's a reasonably easy drive to Maryville, which has stores and restaurants. Power, water, sewer, cable all good. Wi-Fi service ranges from excellent on some sites to non-existent on others -- if you want Wi-Fi, don't stay on Row A. Verizon MiFi is usable as a backup, but we could only get 1-2 bars 3G service. Sites narrow. Tow vehicles and toads parked all over so maneuvering is a little difficult. Bath houses are nicely designed, but maintenance is questionable -- I found out the hard way that one of the toilets isn't solidly bolted to the floor. No enforcement of dog leash or pickup rules. The real downside is the price. They advertise $47/night for a long pull-through. That alone was high enough to make me think twice. But when you arrive, you learn that the local government is going to hit you with another 14.25% tax, making the price close to $54/night. A campground would have to be SUPER nice to merit a price like that and this place isn't that nice. I'll return to this area, but I'll find somewhere less pricey to stay.

Nice park that is on the quiet side of the Smokies so you avoid all the tourist stuff and traffic, but still can get to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg easily. Park is situated on a river with lots of trees around the park but not at the sites. Sites are gravel as are interior roads. Sites are level and long enough. Wi-Fi is free and is strong. Downside is price for sites. In my opinion the full price of $47 for 50 amp pull through site is too much for the area. They do accept Passport America which helped and if you stay a week the 7th night is free so for our stay of 11 nights it averaged to $35/night plus taxes.

Great place near the entrance to the "quiet side" of the Smokey Mountains. One of the nicest bath accommodation around, almost like home. Friendly staff, helpful at check-in. Park is layer out so it is pretty easy getting around, even though it looks a little tight. There is a nice large field for activities, and they do have a bonfire on occasion.

We stayed at this park for 2 months in the late fall. We had read on their web site about the many awards they had received so we didn't know what to expect but hoped it would be good. What we found was a very good CG. The camp roads and sites were graveled and level and the owners were constantly doing maintenance to make sure there were no potholes or any issues. The 50 amp service was flawless and the water pressure was excellent the entire stay. The staff was incredibly helpful and went out of their way to help with any question or situation. The Wi-Fi was fairly stable but when it rained there seemed to be problems. It would have been nice to have a stronger signal since we lost connection at least a couple times a day. Verizon 3G signal was also weak in the area so the MiFi hotspot did not work well here. The property was nice and clean with a large field and an area for group campfires. They had some nice frontage along the Little River but no real place for campers to do any extended walking. The small 2 lane road running alongside the campground had no shoulder and was a danger to walk on. However what really makes this campground a winner is the location. You are basically camping right next door to the Smoky Mountain National park and miles away from the Gatlinburg-Pigeon Forge traffic. You are also a very short drive from Maryville which has all the shopping you need. However by investing about 40 minutes and you can be in Knoxville with all the amenities. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Misty River Cabins & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a large, well maintained park. Everything was clean and organized. The bath house has several individual shower/bathrooms (2 or 3 are handicap accessible), so you can lock the door and feel secure. There were several laundry machines, games and reading materials available also. The owners are very accommodating. We got there a little late, but they waited for us. The park was very quiet and peaceful. We will definitely go back. We camped at Misty River Cabins & RV Resort in a Motorhome.
