So, I stopped in here the other day knowing full well that this is your typical roadside tourist trap. They advertise that you can see the moonshine stills out back for FREE. To get to the stills you have to walk through their outdoor & indoor souvenir/gift shops. They are nothing special. In fact, they are kind of beat looking.... More

This place I will never come back to or park my car for the rod run.. I came to drop my kids off 4 and 1 with their dad and got told I need to move my car or they will call the cops. As soon as I pulled up they started taking pictures of me walking my kids to... More

I wanted to stop here because they have one of those penny machines. Well let's say the name perfectly describes this place. It was not very pretty, very country. The items they have in the store looks like cheap little trinkets. Nothing extravagant really. It wasn't really something I was into and the worker watches you like a hawk. Makes... More

Last time we will ever visit this store. I have been coming to Pigeon forge my whole life and have never been treated like we were at this place. We were visiting with my wife's grandmother which is on oxygen and has many health problems. My wife took her grandmother out to sit down and get her medicine and a... More

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
