An overlooked gem of the area, it was the first tourist trap in Pigeon Forge, back when hillbilly was popular (think Mountain Dew, Green Acres, Lil' Abner). One of the employees told me it was first built from a bar and dance hall in the 1960s, pointing out the original linoleum in the back of the store, the rings where... More

This is one of the original gift shops left in pigeon forge. Although we don't stop every visit we try to stop at least once a year for a sentimental visit. I can remember stopping there when I would visit as a child with my parents. They don't have as much inventory anymore but it's still fun to visit out... More

Ok didn't expect too much enjoyed this place more when the kids were small they could find some little trinket that didn't cost much and made them happy it's just a junk shop kinda fun to browse but it is old and could use some updating

I cant stress enough to you just how rude the owners were and how dirty this place was. I was very disappointed its run down and is a eyesore to the Pigeon Forge Strip. Please do not waste your families time even pulling on the parking lot.

Been here several times, great place to walk around and browse but it's not like it use to be. It needs some updating or something. Most of the people are very nice though.

When I was young this was a really neat visit for the family. Things have changed since then, the village out back is run down and looks very much in disrepair. Such a shame, the novelty of the place used to be great. I don't know if it has changed ownership over the years or what but it certainly is... More

Stopped here on a whim, just to take pictures of the sign, yet ended up with lots of affordable souveniers to take home from our trip! Large and full of interesting items. Junky, tacky, cheap and fun all rolled into one! Our kind of souvenier stand!

This is what the Smoky Mountain gift and souvenir shops all resembled in their earlier days, quaint little shops with very unique one of a kind souvenirs and the small little village out back that consists of a cabin, outhouse and moonshine still. For my sister and I it's a step back into time in the early 70's when we... More

When we were kids we used to visit Hillbilly Village as one of our stops in the Smokes. It was always a good time and the recreated village and moonshine still. It was kinda animated controlled by motion. For instance when you walk up to the out house there would be a voice recording of someone telling you to stay... More

I have been here in the past and it was better. Seems the economy might have taken its toll here. But still a cool place to walk around and see all the cool stuff.
