This is a beautiful park with mature trees and impeccable landscaping. Underground utilities and no street lights. We did feel it would be difficult to arrive late because of darkness. It is true that many of the RV sites are occupied by seasonal RV's, but because of our late (in the year) visit, we felt very comfortable. Also, we were told that there is most often room for the daily and weekend visitors. Not much cellphone signal for us. Bathrooms very clean. Staff very kind to us. We definitely will return.
This was our first trip to Townsend and Mountaineer Campground. We really enjoyed our trip. This is a small family owned and operated campground right on the Little River and only 2 miles from the entrance to GSMNP. Our site (12) overlooked the river and we had access to the river to cool off and tube. The pool is very nice - not the newest, but CLEAN and maintained. The bathrooms have a code pinpad for access and security. Any time I went into the bathroom and shower - they were very clean. I really appreciated that. Beautiful mature trees provide shade. We love being outside when we camp, and we all agreed we want to return.
