Usually, my family of 3 go to Cades Cove for tent camping. (No electric/no showers) We rough it for the weekend or three or four days. Our vacation was in the middle of October 2013 during the closing of all of the US National Parks. We are a stubborn family and really wanted to go tent camping, so we looking... More

We had a great time at Camping in The Smokies. We appreciated the spotless bath rooms and showers. We don't have a car so we took advantage of the trolley systems in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. There is a trolley stop right in front of the campground, and one on the other side of the street, which came in handy... More

This is a great place to stay. The bathrooms were always clean and I always had a hot shower! The owners were very great. We had a pop up, the weather was really cold one night, and the water froze. The owner came around to unfreeze our hose and all of the RV's whose froze. It is really close to... More

At check in the campground managers spent about 10 minutes reading us rules and then constantly kept an eye on us trying to catch us break a rule. Campground was almost empty and they tried to park us right in between two other campers. I didn't accept that and insisted on a more private spot. Maybe that is why they... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and would have left if it wasn't for their no refund policy (which I understand). Even though the camp was almost empty, we were wedged in between 2 other campers. So close we could hear them snoring. It is our fault we did not ask to be moved, but still. However, the facility is... More

Can't say enough about this campground...the owners are very nice and also helpful. The place is small but not at all crammed in like other parks in the area. The grounds are clean and many sites back up to a stream. Bath house, laundry, pool...all very clean. Great cable and two wi-fi transmitters...no problems with them. Pet friendly but there... More

First let me start off by saying this: We are from Michigan and our campgrounds are secluded and tree filled, not at all close to a busy road. While the owners are extremely nice and the bathhouse, pool, and grounds are kept very clean- this just wasn't what we expected. This campground is super small. Our kids had nowhere to... More

Me and my husband bought our first camper and took our first camping trip to Gatlinburg, TN. We found this very nice campground and we are so glad we did. It was great from the get go. Bob directed us to our site and helped my husband set our camper up. We truly appreciated his help because being first time... More

My husband and I stayed here after reading the review on here. So glad we did-the owners were super friendly and kept the grounds and restrooms immaculate. My biggest complaint was the location of the tent sites in relevance to the rvs. The area the tents were located was shaped like a "u" with the rvs being on either side... More

We tried this campground for the first time this October and LOVED everything about it! The owners are very friendly and helpful. Everything about the campground from the grounds to the laundry house is IMMACULATE and in good working order. Also a very pretty location and nestled down off the road next to the woods with a creek running behind... More
