Not worth the stop

This place has nothing to really look at. It looks like a left over flea market. Was a waste of time.

The people that work there are unfriendly and insulting. My wife picked up a stuffed animal and carried to another part of the store. She wanted to go to the back shop so she decided to set the stuffed animal down and went to the back shop. She decided she did not want to purchase it so we left. We... More

We went in there first thing looking for knick nacks and gifts to take home. Forget it; it's like an old sad flee market with over priced crap no one wants.

Went into to shop to look for some key chains that have Smoky Mountains on them for some friends back home. The guy working the register told my 3 year old daughter to stop throwing her little stuffed squirel because it would get dirty. My daughter continued tossing it up not hurting anyone and he then says to me, "sir... More

My husband and I used to go there as kids. We took our kids and now our grandchildren. The hillbilly exhibit out back is falling down. It has always been a favorite. I sure wish they would do some work on it. Also need more merchandise in store.

I've been coming to Pigeon Forge for years, but this was my first and last visit to the Hillbilly Village. Not much to see, mostly cheap looking souvenirs, way too overpriced. The "village" is nothing more than an old cabin and a couple of rusted looking stills. The women working there don't seem too friendly, at least that's the impression... More

This stop is a must when visiting Pigeon Forge! Yes, there are a lot of tacky impractical gifts and knick knacks here that some reviewers absolutely despise, but that's the whole point of this shop! If you were a kid vacationing here in the late 70s and 80s a trip through the front door of Hill-billy Village will send all... More

I love everything about the store, the still and the display outback. The kids got a kick out of the outhouse too. There's a reason they have been there 50 yrs. Keep it up so we can all enjoy it.
