We booked a spur of the moment weekend getaway to this campground. We weren't able to get a river front site, but we ended up with a nice-sized full hook-up site (#59) toward the front of the campground Like another reviewer mentioned, the driveway leading up to this campground definitely looks questionable and we were a little concerned what we'd...

Great and friendly staff easy check in and out, are site was a great size with water and power. Straight across from bath house but right on the river which you can fish,swim, or tube in. Great fun all weekend. Loved it. Not far from shops in Cherokee as well. Plenty for kids to do pool, activities all day, game... More

We booked this trip last minute. Arrived July 7th and was surprised at the amazing spot we had. Close to the bathrooms and right in the middle of everything. We saw lots of staff members cleaning the camp grounds constantly. They would always stop and talk very helpful. The bathrooms were very clean and the grounds were well lit at... More

I made my reservations 6 months ago. The reason coming to the Smokies was to go tubing down the river. When I initially made my reservation I was told I would be close to the river or on the river but when I arrived at the park we received two spots as far away from the river as possible. I... More

Thank you Michelle for taking the time to leave us a review. I apologize that you didn't like the deluxe site that you booked. If riverfront sites were available during your stay we would have gladly moved you. Riverfront sites are usually booked a year or two ahead of time during the fourth of July Holiday. We were unable to... More

We have camped at Yogi several times. The staff working the grounds and cleaning bath houses are very nice. It does get very crowded during holiday around the 181-188 spots. Best spots are along the river. They have a lot of activities for the children. WiFi doesn't work well unless you are near office.

Prior to going to this camp ground, I read some of the reviews that were from people that were not happy with their experience. From what I gather from reading the reviews is that apparently the campground has had a change in management/staff. I had already booked so I figured I will just see for myself. I will tell you...

There are tons of beautiful campsites, private showers/toilets are available, all sizes of very nice cabins are available. The staff are all extremely nice and helpful!! They offered to come help my mom and her friends set up their tent before we got there! A very family "feel". Bathrooms are clean and grounds are well maintained. Lots of fun stuff... More

First time visiting this area. This campground is obviously set up for kids. Since it was just me and my husband we did not use many of the amenities. We did have a great site on the creek and the staff could not have been any nicer. However we spent most of our time in the mountains and surrounding towns... More

Great Location with hiking, fishing, and wading. Waterfalls are nearby. The last day of the trip, we even found a nearby casino. This is a nice location for families with children. There are peddle-carts and floats available, as well as a game room, and more. The restrooms are well placed. The cleaning schedule always seemed to be when I needed... More

Thank you Adrian for the nice review. We definitely are a family oriented park with a lot of activities and fun things for the kiddos. In the summer season folks do tube the river a lot. Most of the serious fishing happens in the spring and fall. Our local hatchery drops fish a couple days a week, but the days... More
