Nice park. Everything worked as it should. Convenient location to lots of shopping, dining, etc. Stayed three days and will return when in the area.

Very few sites for large RV's, but #121 worked out ok for our 37' Class A. We drove through the park before reserving since we live within a half hour or so, then called the park office directly since they show a maximum length of 28' at most sites on the Reserve America reservation website. Overall, not a bad place, and considering the price, we were pretty pleased during the three nights we stayed here. There are even a couple of sites that larger RV's were allowed to park perpendicular to the parking area, instead of in it, as it was designed. The Falls are beautiful and there are lots of hiking trails in the area.

Nice, family oriented park. Owners have and still are working very hard in the little over a year they've owned it to make improvements. They're doing a great job as they continue to add amenities. Mostly paved, pull-through sites in our section. Not a lot to do in the immediate area, but it's less than an hour in virtually all directions to plenty of off site activities. WiFi worked extremely well. We would return if in the area.

Nice wide sites. Security patrol. Playground for kids. Nice relaxing campground. Already made reservations for a return trip. Plenty of hiking and biking trails.

Nice park just before you get to all the Pigeon Forge heavy traffic area. Within a mile or two of Walmart, outlet shopping, great restaurants. Park wasn't nearly filled, and it was nice that they didn't put us all together in one section. Nice to have some space between vehicles, and nice of them to provide it since many parks don't. Stayed here in a 37' motorhome and had plenty of room on a level site. Will return. Good Sam rate.

Continues to be one of our favorite stops. Lots of space between sites where children can play. Would be a ten if there were sewer hookups instead of just dump stations.

Very nice park with great owner/operators. Driving range adjacent to park. Peaceful setting just off I-81.

Very tight quarters in the pullthrough section, but as has been posted before, if you're going to Hershey Park this is the place to stay to take advantage of the free shuttle and to get the discount on park tickets.

Formerly a KOA. Needs some work, but it was ok to use as a base for visiting the local area. Stayed five nights. Site was surrounded by tall pines, but was open enough to see the stars at night. It was all grass, fairly level, w/picnic table and fire ring. Campground shower area was private with each of the shower areas having its own entry door. Didn't see or hear anything about the thefts as mentioned in the previous post. We were near the front of the campground and therefore close to the office so that may have provided some protection. Interior roads were rough in some areas, but not bad enough to do any damage.

Just needed an overnight stop. The park was really crowded, so we felt fortunate to get any site at all since other parks on our route couldn't take us. Very friendly staff and decently stocked camp store. WiFi couldn't be accessed since so many others were online already by the time I tried. No cable on our back in site near the cabins, also these sites were really crowded. Pull through sites looked pretty decent though. Lots of activities going on for the weekend. The pancake breakfast gets a "thumbs up" from our group. We'd probably stay here again, but would definitely try for another site.

Nice enough, but nothing spectacular for the price. The sites are a little close, but that could be said for just about all parks in this area. Nice pool and playground for the kids. Close to Dollywood, the Old Mill and Patriot Park. Our site was level, but not all of the sites are so you might want to ask if you don't have auto levelers. No real complaints, but there are parks just as good or better for less money.

Nice park, very quiet, very rural area on Lake Thurmond. Motorhomes should avoid small loop camping area since all sites I saw slope downward to the lake's edge and it would be very difficult to level your vehicle. Sites on campfire loop were mostly level although perhaps a little narrow for slides and awnings. Dump station located near entrance/exit. Cell phone service worked OK. Built in roof antenna picked up four local tv stations. There is a line of sight for satellite dishes on some sites. Park has a beautiful public golf course along with several other outdoor activities. Staff very friendly. We stayed in a 30' motorhome and would stay again if in the area. 45 miles from Augusta, GA.

Arrived late so took what was available. Most level sites we saw were on the side of the park that offered only electric/water. Full hookup side pretty full anyway. Fine for an overnight stop. Camped in a 30' motorhome pulling a Jeep. Would stay here again.

Gets an extra point for location. Full hookups, excellent cable tv, shuttle pickup nearby. We'll definitely stay here again if the opportunity presents itself. Site had room for our 30' motorhome and Jeep.

Nice campground with enough space between sites to allow some room to breathe. Lots of trees which provided plenty of shade, but also blocked TV reception and except for a very few sites, using a satellite dish was out of the question. They have converted 45 sites to full service. Staff was very helpful. Restrooms OK unless you had to visit them after the beach crowd began to return. We stayed here in a 30' motorhome and had no problems, but larger vehicles might. We'd stay here again.

Nightly rate is for a river site. All extra people cost $3 extra. Son and granddaughter spent one night, pushing the cost to $48 plus tax per night. Lots of improvements being made at this park. It is the closest commercial campground to Cades Cove. Cell phones do not work here. Might stay here again, but will probably look at some of the other area campgrounds a little more closely before deciding.

Plenty of space between sites. Everything in excellent shape. Very enjoyable stay. They also offer an electricity-only option in their overflow lot if the main campground is full.
