We received a free week promotion so we stopped in on our way to FL from WI. The site layout is great the way the lots are tiered and staggered really makes the sight lines off the lot towards the lake very nice. The owner is very friendly and while we there on a promotion, he did not put a hard sell on. The club house is very clean, and a nice touch that they do was to post from the local papers the activities that were happening in the area that week. The area offers a lot: if you like boating, the campground has its own marina; there are some Revolutionary War sites in the area along with some nice golf courses. The people that already own were also very friendly, coming and introducing themselves and offering to take us out on their boats. With the discounts on the lots, I think he sold two during the week we were there. We enjoyed are week here! We will stop again when we are in the area.
We were in town while the leaves were changing so it was very crowded. We had a back in site, and it was very tight swinging the coach into the site. Our biggest issue with this campground was the road noise from the highways that are on at least two sides if not three of the campground. It was easy to get to because it was right off the freeway, and easy to get to the Biltmore, which is why we came in the first place. Most likely would not stay again.
The park has a beautiful view of the mountains. They have an up charge for the concrete sites, so we took a back in gravel site. Nice and long, no problem parking the toad in front of the RV. Very close to the back entrance Smoky Mountain National Park. Went in the back way and was shocked at the line of traffic that was coming in front entrance out of Gatlinburg. Glad we were able to miss the long lines. Park was clean with nice club house and wash house. Front desk did not seem to be very friendly; ask about what to see and where to eat, and they seemed a bit put off. Is a ways from town if you think you are going to it often. I think we would try another place next time.
The owners are very friendly and took time to informed us of the area on our arrival. The location is great for exploring Mamonth Caves. Our site was very nice with shade tree and a nice view of the pond. No problem with the coach leveling itself and the internet was good. Park was basic but clean, would stay again.
The location to downtown is excellent. The campground area that was open when we arrived was on the edge of the large parking lot that required the you back the rig over a curb and up against the fence. The sites were all sloping forward and even with blocks under our front jacks we could not get level. Also the sites are very narrow, but given the number of campers they allow each to take two sites. There was another campground area that looked nice, level and shaded, but it was gated off while we were there. The fair grounds are great to walk or ride bikes around, and there looks to be activities going on most weekends. They had a National Fly Ball competition and model train show going on so we went to both. Unless I had a reason to be close to downtown I will not stay here again.
Check in was real quick, with only our name given when calling in a couple of hours out from the park the owner had looked up to see if we had visited in the past, we had, this was going to be our third visit, he had all our info and only needed to swipe the card. The park is just off the highway, easy to in and out, but the road noise is not an issue. They have a stocked private fishing lake that requires not license, so bring your pole. Park is treed but the owner knows what sites you satellite will work at. Will stop here any time we are passing through!
As mentioned before, the campground is part of the cafe in town and closes are 2:00 PM. We arrived after this time and took a site, plenty open. Paid for the site the next morning when the cafe opened. Did not use the bathrooms so can not comment on their conditions. Location is great for exploring town, just walk up the street. Brewery has move out of town, up on the hill. During summer months there is a shuttle from down town to the brewery for tours. Would stay again for a night or two.
We stayed here for a month, and really enjoyed ourselves. If you get bored at this park there is something wrong with you. I built several projects in the wood shop, my wife attended the knitting club several times a week. My parents came to visit and stayed in the hotel (clean, basic. a little pricey, but very convenient). She took the lapidary class and enjoyed it. Would suggest a site back in the park models if you are staying for a month or more. The sites up front seem to give the parking lot effect. Next stay will be for 3-4 months!
The park is right off the highway so it is convenient place to stop, yet you do not hear much road noise because you are on top of a hill. We were welcomed by the owner who had a bag of popcorn popping for us. It was a nice warm snack after a long day of driving is cold weather. The campground had nice long pull-throughs, so we did not have to disconnect our toad. Place was clean and well maintained. Would stay again!
Location is very convenient when transitioning from I 40 onto Hwy 54. Owner was very friendly and took into consideration our desire to be on the road early the next morning, giving us an easy in and out site away from the other units. The park is part of the old Route 66 that is always interesting to see. Would stay again.
