Bring your own toilet paper, hand soap, paper towels and cleaner!!! the air conditioned bathroom only had one stall with a latch and one roll of toilet paper. There was no light at night to even show you where it was. The other bathroom never had more than one roll to share between three stalls but most of the time... More

It is difficult to go to the Smokies on a tight budget, especially in summer when everything is booked. I found this listing and read the reviews. I didn't send a deposit, just reserved a larger camping cabin over the phone. My requirements were: affordable, kitchenette with fridge, indoor bathroom, off the main drag, a/c,and space enough for two preteen... More

Its like this they cant call themselves a family campground. Since they cause more drama on a daily basis than a broadway stage has had from its opening. The old man who runs it don't do anything but yell at anyone for everything. The lady in the chair across from the office is quite older & it dont seem like... More

Have you ever made a reservation and regretted your decision? That is exactly what happened to us on our trip to the Shady Oaks Campground in Pigeon Forge. We experienced a dog poop-infested campsite with unsupervised, self-inviting children. Additionally, only a few of our neighbors were campers. Many were seemingly permanent residents of mobile homes or aged campers. After quickly... More

The website is very much false advertising, when questioned they said the company who created the web site should be contacted and questioned - WTH. The cabin we stayed in was infested with cockroaches,ants and spiders. We had to clean and spray before we would even think about sleeping. It isnt even a campground its a run down trash trailer...

Part trailer park part campground. May have been good back in the day but not now. Run down campers and trailers. Needs fixing up desperately. No leash and clean up behind pets enforced. Like a dump. Would stay in Gatlinburg but not Pigeon Forge.

We were checking out places to tent camp and stopped by. Office smelled of stale smoke and after getting some rate info we went down stairs to use the restrooms. That tells a lot. The bathrooms were filthy with brown filth on the toilet seats and not flushed. The mens room was just as bad with the urinal leaking and... More

We lost $50 because we paid before looking. They do not give refunds at all. We should have looked before paying. I felt very uncomfortable so, we drove around and found another campground that was a 1000% nicer.. I feel much safer and cleaner . Shady Oaks is very shady a lot of permanent dwellers that are very run down... More
