We absolutely loved the Wilderness @ the Smokies. We intended to go into Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, but there was so much to do at the resort, that the kids didn't want to live. We never left the resort our entire trip. Food was good and reasonably priced so no need to leave. The waterpark is EXCELLENT. We loved our... More

We took a chance on this resort even though my daughter who is 4 can be timid at water parks. Everyone had a great time. She loved the lazy river and the wave pools. The room was perfect size and having a full kitchen with utensils allowed us to cook healthy meals without eating out. We probably saved $200 on... More

My fiance and I visited the Wilderness of the Smokies with our 3 children and our sons friend the weekend after Labor Day. This time our room was at River Lodge instead of Stone Hill Lodge, which River Lodge is so much more nicer. We arrived late on Friday and checked out on Sunday. Our room was such a beautiful...

We spent the week here during Spring Break and it was great. It was pricey but if you buy food to prepare in the room as we did you never really have to leave. The kids had a blast. The slides were fun. They seriously have the best wave pool of any waterpark I have visited. We would definetly return.

The room was nice and neat, but the lighting in the bathroom and at the mirror for the min-bar was horrible. It was very dim and one bulb was out above the bathroom sink. The light fixtures were not good ones for putting on makeup by. The room was comfortable, but the thermostat was off by about 4 degrees to... More

My grand children just plain loved the Wilderness of the Smokies. There was so much for them to do. All the water rides were great. The arcade was very nice. They did not want to leave. Had to take them down to the candy store and buy delicious candy and ice cream to get them to go.
