The staff here were not the friendliest or most accommodating we have ever come across, but luckily we did not have any contact with them after check in. The facilities were old and somewhat run down but were clean and served the purpose. The environment was fantastic with almost all of the sites completely hidden from any neighbors. The beach is just across the street and the views (especially the sunsets) of the intercoastal waterway were fantastic. We will definitely stay here again
This campground has a great location for visiting the beach at Tybee. The bath houses are old but certainly adequate. Some sites are tight but ours was on the end so it was larger. We would stay here again.
While this park was a bit dated and needed some repairs we found everything to be in working order. The number of things at the park for our grandson to do was the reason we choose it and we were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and helped us in every way. The park was sold out but the size of the sites made it seem like it was not too crowded. We will be back when we can.
Cades Cove Campground is in the heart of the Smokey Mountains and far away from the neon world of Pigeon Forge, Sevierville and Gatlinburg. It is a great place to get the feel for the mountains by going on a hike or swimming in a clear mountain stream. The camping experience in this campground is being closer to nature than in a more sophisticated campground. Don’t miss the ‘loop’ road around Cades Cove where you can loose count of the number of deer you’ve see on an early morning or late evening drive. Note that the “loop’ Road is only open to bicycles on Saturday Morning (which you can rent at the store). And be sure to stop at the grist mill at the halfway point. The camp store is well stocked. This is one of the best places to enjoy family and the true camping experience in this part of the country.
We enjoyed staying here for 4 nights. The park was quiet and had a lot of shade. This is a great location to stay and explore Western North Carolina. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only negative is that it was raining and the sites could use more gravel to cut down on the mud. If you turn right out of the campground the drive through the mountains was some of the most beautiful scenery we have seen.
This is a very well run campground. The owner was more than friendly and responded to our every request. He has a great collection of military memorabilia and took a lot of time to show it to our grandson. We will definitely stay here again.
