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

I didn't see anything here I really thought was worth buying. Cheap stuff. It's a pretty old building as well

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

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.
