We spent a few days in Walland TN when we were traveling to the Gatlinburg area. The resort was clean (the cleanest bathrooms/showers we have EVER used), people were friendly, and there was a lot of room between RV sites. An excellent place to park the RV and cruise over to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Maryville, or ride the Tail of... More

My husband and I stayed for one week, for my husband's job. The park is nothing fancy, but it was clean and the spots were mostly pull thru. There is a very large grass area that leads down to the Little River and is very pet friendly. The sites are all gravel, but ours was level and had no problem... More

I'm sorry I'm so late in reviewing this campground, but I tend to put things off (LOL). To celebrate my retirement and to enjoy our brand new 5th wheeler, we took a 6 week trip to Tennessee, staying a Whispering River. When we arrived late October 2014, it was still Misty River Campground, but ownership changed while we were there.... More

First I will say I am not one to post all negative comments regarding visited places. I would like to inform future visitors of my experience, because one may not experience the same. The campground is nicely located between both families of my partner and I. So, we felt staying in this location we would be regulars, as we travel... More

We are sorry that we failed to meet your expectations. As you pointed out, we were in a transition period regarding the sale of the property. Now that the sale is behind us, we have focused on making the property and customer service exceed expectations. More

Misty River Cabins and Rv Resort is a great quiet place to stay and unwind. I rented a RV and stayed as well as rented a cabin for several nights. The cabin had great views of the river with a spa on the balcony. Private and nice place to relax. The RV Resort has a clean bathhouse that makes you... More

I have to say that the previous negative reviews made me a little nervous. But the campground is clean, quiet, and friendly with beautiful views and a nice trail on the river. You do need to pick up a cable box at the office (a previous review noted that they do not have cable) and the office does close at... More

We have been here before....but it has been taken over by the bank ....we will not come back until services are reinstated. The sites are unlevel gravel sites and heavily rutted. It always seems to rain when we are there and then we end up on an island because the water does not drain readily...and stays muddy when it does... More

In 2013 this rv park was pretty good This year it seems you are now that n a waste land! Still good location but all else has sunk to the bottom( if the rain pits ) Until the bank finds a good owner it will continue to deteriorate because the bank WILL not invest any money for upkeep. We will... More

Eight of us stayed for a week in the "Lodge". Cabin was very big and right on the river. Included a hot tub on the back deck and a pool table we did not see in the pictures, so nice addition. Very quiet, close enough to Townsend and Maryville for supplies and restaurants, but far enough to feel secluded. Management... More
