Yes, this was probably the last campsite I would have booked if I had driven around and looked at all of the ones near by. The website had made it appear to be sunny, happy and friendly. It appeared to be "shady", with some interesting looking residents walking around but the few people who spoke to us were very nice.... More

My family and I booked this "campground" for a recent trip to the Smokey Mountains and the east coast. It turned out to be a trailer park you only thought existed in the movies. I will let our pictures speak for themselves, but please find any other campground in the area. We left in less then 12 hours...

The nastiest, scariest place I think we have ever stayed. Dirty screaming kids running amuck. We would have left had we not been exhausted and needed to sleep a few hours. That's all the sleep we had because screaming kids were out until after 1AM. We also saw the owner and a "local renter" get into an argument and the... More

This has got to be the worst campground ever, the cabin smells, dirty, no curtains, bugs, unclean bedding, no towels and we went into town and came back and strange people in our cabin, they rented it to others thinking we had abandoned which we tried to but no where else had vacancy, the smell of cat urine all over...

This is a horrible campground. It is basically a trailer park with rowdy long term residents. They drive in and out of the campground until the early morning hours and lots of late night verbal altercations. The bath-house is in disrepair and quite disgusting. We arrived late at night and were not familiar with the area, the better campgrounds were... More

Don't stop, not for families. This place use to be great but not anymore. But thankful the old man did make them stop fireworks. Mostly year around people with no jobs. I'm a country person but these people are past countryfied. Women showering with men, loud music, driving fast in campground, loose cats an dogs. Just go someplace else

This is a run down trailer park with some places to camp. The wifi and cable did not work. The owners were very rude. The bathrooms were never cleaned or stocked. I'm glad we were in a camper. The pool was very dirty and there were no clean or functional lounge chairs by the pool. The police patrolled regularly. Do... More
