Stayed here one night as an overnight on our way to South Carolina. First come first serve and we happened to get the last site with electric and water that was open. Nice setting, shade, close to the water. Mosquitoes were pretty thick at dusk, but all in all a nice site. I do think people are putting cheap tents on some sites to make other people think someone is already camping at the site. I saw at least 4 sites that were set up this way with nobody around. Restrooms were clean, did not use the showers. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Friday, June 21 – Douglas Reservoir – Douglas Dam Headwater Campground, Sevierville, TN This is a TVA self-service campground. Sixty five campsites and 61 with water and electric hookups. We checked in on a Friday afternoon. First, we had gone down the road to another TVA campground Douglas Dam Tailwater Campground but there was nothing available. Some sites at these TVA campgrounds almost looked like permanents. So we headed back up the road and checked this one out. When we crossed the highway we could see the campground just below the dam and it looked like it was full. We decided to drive down and check it out and we found a small site that we could have fit in but a large RV was at the dump station and had just left a nice site right on the river with hookups. So we stayed the night with a nice view of the dam and downstream. We were lucky to get a spot. It is a self check in campground so we had to fill out the form and put cash in the envelope to put in the box. With a Golden Age pass, the $22 per site was 50% off to make it $11. Nice stop, but we were in driving range of interstate 40, Pigeon Forge and Smokey Mts National Park that the traffic on the highways was busy so I don’t know if we would ever stop again. This is a tourist area and very crowded. The campground was full but it was very enjoyable and peaceful. The restrooms had heated showers and flush toilets. There was a dump station, picnic tables, boat ramp, walking trail, wildlife viewing area, bird watching and a swimming beach (I don’t know about swimming in the river because we found a lot of trash and dead fish in it right in front of our site). We camped here in a Motorhome.

The previous poster pretty much nailed it. For the most part the sites have plenty of space between them with the exception of the lake front spots. Most of the sites are level enough for a trailer or fifth wheel, but motor homes might have to use some blocks under their jacks to get completely level. Our biggest complaint was the quality of the electricity. It was real easy to pull the voltage down into the 105 to 108 range when loading it with 20 plus amps. I would be concerned about trying to use an air conditioner at this campground. We had one of the lake front sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.

A Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) clean, neat, campground on Douglas Lake impounding the French Broad River, the camp off to the north of the dam with electric power generation. Paved roads, with nicely graveled sites, but most not level, with water and 30 and 20 amp electricity, a dump station, and clean bath house with shower. Huge boat ramp and parking right by campground. Many ducks and gray herons to view. Great view of the huge lake. With a Golden Passport the $22/day reduces to $11, a real bargain. There is also a Tailwater section below the dam with 62 more level sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
