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.

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.

I love this souvenir shop. Been coming here since I was a kid. Pigeon Forge has changed a lot but Hill-Billy Village is still the same. Of course it's full of mountain trinkets and cheap crap actually made in Hong Kong.. But where else can you find this stuff? I bought my first coonskin cap here 40 years ago! If... More

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

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
