Pros: close to Dollywood,Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg attractions, shaded sites, strong WIFI, digital cable TV, nice pool, park with paved walking trail next door. Cons: No escort to sites, standard pull-thru sites very tight, some impossible to connect your tow vehicle before departing, these sites are 3-4 feet from your neighbor, very close camping, trees at end of sites make some turns impossible, deluxe pull-thru sites available at premium rate. I don't consider this a big rig friendly park. Because they advertize pull-thru sites that don't work. If you are towing a trailer and can't disconnect you may have a serious problem exiting some sites. Use Caution
Pros: newer campground, very close to Mammoth Cave National Park entrance, nicely landscaped, large level pull-thru sites, big rig friendly, satellite friendly, clean modern bathrooms and showers, modern laundry machines, owner resides on site. Cons: train noise from tracks adjacent to campground, no shade.
Pros: nice quite country setting, tall shade trees, clean & modern bathrooms and shower building, laundry on site, some large pull through sites, some sites satellite friendly, owner on site maintaining grounds, owner building attractive sheds for some seasonal campers, owner's wife cooks some meals for minimal charge, other campers talked positive about campground. Cons: 8-10 miles from grocery store, Limited WI-FI service. Would return and recommend to others.
Pros: gated campground, quite State Park setting, large pull through 50 amp FHU sites, back in 50 amp FHU sites, satellite friendly sites, 30 amp gravel sites in shade, laundry facilities, standard or deluxe cabins, large lake with rental boats, walking/biking paths. Cons: you must pay a daily Park vehicle fee of $3.00 or $10.00 annually, this is not included in your camping fees.
Pros: well maintained park, electric sites with 30 amp and 20 amp outlets, paved roads, paved sites, paved bike trails, grass and green plant buffers between sites, clean well maintained bath houses with showers, quite country environment, satellite friendly sites, Verizon cellphone and hotspot signal was excellent. Office with friendly staff, two dump stations & fresh water fills near office with wide access for all sized RV’s, air compressor on site. State Park has a large swimming lake and beach. Picnic tables throughout park some with pavilions. Restaurant in Lodge is nice but a little pricey for campers. Cons: no full hook-up sites, no 50 amp electric sites, using a Y adapter on the 30 & 20 amp outlets to get 50 amp service causes the 20 amp GFI circuit to trip instantly. One fresh water fill per camper road section.
Pros: convenient to falls, Pleasure Island amusement Park next door, grocery store, drug store and post office. Two swimming pools understand one is heated with tube slides, many nice cabins in pleasant settings some are new. RV sites near office available with concrete patios, furniture and grill but expensive. Many tent sites with picnic tables, electric and water. Cons: OVER PRICED, Bridge tolls, RV sites 601-640 are along noisy main interstate and narrow, mostly grass and gravel, small trees interfere with slides and awnings. RV Sites near office are mostly gravel/grass, old blacktop, warning many are double sites that you back into each other. This makes for very close neighborly camping. Laundry room had 12 washers but only 3 working dryers out of 6 machines. Office staff was mostly young and lacked knowledge of operation at times. Getting mail at campground office was a problem. I use FMCA mail forwarding service sent by USPS Priory Mail. Office staff stated NO mail was received and actually it was never picked up by KOA manager from the local Post Office. I drove to Post Office on Grand Island to get my mail that was sent to the KOA campground. I would not return to this KOA.
Stayed five weeks because of the location to Nashville and reasonable nightly rate. The campground is dated based on the electrical service and laundry room. There are some full timers living in the back section paying $450.00 a month plus electric. Pros: convenient to Grand Ole Opry and downtown Nashville Helpful, friendly office staff that assists in Show tickets and transportation. Well stocked store with all necessary food items level gravel sites, concrete pads with picnic tables nice pool with lounge chairs, limited shade, live karaoke Sunday evenings, some night security and garbage pickup every am. Good value for their nightly rate Pet friendly. Cons: Very limited 50 amp sites must reserve ahead to guarantee, most sites 30amp. No circuit breakers on sites must access main panels boxes to reset. Not all sites had sewer connections. Cable TV service is poor/fair quality, no HD reception WI-FI signal had two transmitters but I could never connect to either. Laundry had outdated machines that worked but dryers were .50 cents for 10 minutes of time.
This is a newer park opened in late summer of 2010. There are level gravel sites with a concrete pad and picnic table. All sites have full hook-ups with 50 amp service. The TV service is Direct satellite and you are provided a receiver when you arrive. I have my own satellite system so never used theirs. The internet Wi-Fi signal worked well during my stay. There is a section of wooden fence between the sites that helps provide some privacy. All sites are back in and located on the river or backup to the Great Smoky Mountain scenic railroad. The store provides goods to campers and local residences. There is a meeting room, large modern clean showers and bathrooms for men and women. The laundry has new modern machines and gas dryers. There is a large pavilion with picnic tables and a roof by the main store. There is no swimming pool or play area for children. One of the nicest amenities is a walking trail along the Tuckasegee River that is well maintained. Some people swim, tube, and kayak on the river. You will get some noise from the highway but this was not a problem for me. The trees are small and provide no shade for your RV. I enjoyed watching the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad pass the park twice daily. The park is very pet friendly since the managers have two small dogs. The on-site managers and provide excellent customer service. Be advised this Campground and sites are For Sale by the owner. I understand only one site is sold in the park.
Twin Creek is a family owned and maintained campground. The owners live on site and do most of the maintenance in the park. All sites and roads are paved and have concrete patios with picnic tables. The pool area is nice with an adult pool, children’s pool and in ground Jacuzzi. The bathrooms at the pool are very clean and there are shade umbrellas and nice lounge chairs. The main office has a small store, laundry room and a women’s boutique. The park has mature shade trees on most sites and many campers have been returning here for years. All sites have full hook-ups including 50 amp service. The internet Wi-Fi signal in the park was excellent and fast. The TV cable service is excellent with many HDTV channels. There are two new cabins that can be rented for those without RV’s and automobile rentals. The location is very close to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. The park is located on the Trolley line with a major grocery store within walking distance. My only negative was a female office staff hired for the summer that was rude to several campers. The owners were very polite and helpful when I approached them. I honestly believe they get negative reviews because of camp workers that staff the office some during season. This is sad because this is one of the nicest campgrounds in the state. Also be aware there are lots of rules and signs around the park. They allow pets, but will warn you not to allow them to mess without cleaning up. I will be returning there this October for the fall colors.
This is by far the nicest Campground I have stayed in. There are large rig sites with 50 or 30 amp service in the upper section. There is a separate section for only tent camping along Deep Creek with convenient bathrooms and showers. There is a third section with sites along the Creek for RV’s and additional sites just off the creek. This section also has its own bathrooms and showers. The bathrooms and showers were cleaned daily between 11:00am & 12:00 noon. The laundry was clean and the machines all worked well. The Office and General Store was nice and stocked well. The playgrounds had a volleyball court, swing sets and a large wooden fort several feet above ground. The grounds are extremely well kept with landscaping work being done daily. The trash is picked up twice a day from your campsite. The Campground also rents a lot of tubes to campers and to anyone for use on Deep Creek. The location is excellent within a mile to Bryson City and less than a mile to the Deep Creek entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I would definitely return and recommend it to anyone. Note: they also have cabin rentals for those not choosing to camp.
I arrived planning on staying for three weeks. My site was #82 and was just wide enough for the motorhome. After connecting the 50 amp shoreline I noticed low voltage below 100. My surge guard protection kept shutting down my RV’s electrical system. There were no circuit breakers at the 50 amp posts. The office was notified but did not understand my problem. So, I started using my generator for a few hours. The owner said don’t worry everything will be fine in a few hours. After some discussion I moved to site #8. There was another motorhome on site #9, and soon they told me about the septic system overflowing during July 4th weekend. They rented cabins for their children and grandchildren that had ants and mouse droppings. The laundry room had very few working machines. After realizing my TV satellite could not get a signal, I decided to cancel. The lady in the office called the owner who honored me a full refund of $580.00 for a three week stay. Interesting the RV’s owners on site #9 where only charged $400.00 for a month including July 4th weekend. As, I was leaving the office, the owner arrived and verbally attacked me and showed hatred. The park has about 2/3 of its sites taken by seasonal and annual rentals. Don't stay here you have been warned.
