My family is vacationing in Pigeon Forge & of course wanted to stop by Hillbilly Village to look around & grab some souvenirs. We got out of the cars & were taking some pics around the little carousel & the owner/ manager came out & accused us of making it go around. That was silly all in itself because a... More

Entire place is a missed opportunity. Poorly stocked. Nothing tempting to buy. The games were mostly out of order. The back moonshine exhibition had no historical value...and wasn't even kitschy.

The Shoppe is well maintained, the prices in line with the area. The fun part is the small village behind the gift shop. It has seen it better days, but the 100 year old cabin is worth a look, and the outhouse is a blast too. A bit of a tourist trap, but still funny and an inexpensive (FREE) way... More

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

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
