What an amazing family vacation! Absolutely lives up to all the hype. My family and I visited the campground October 2014. It was during the week so we missed any weekend traffic. From the moment we arrived we immediately felt like family coming for a visit. We stayed in a yurt. I can be known as a bit of a... More

My family and I went this past week for a little getaway before school starts and we just bought our camper. We couldn't have chosen a better place for our first trip! Have visited the area and stayed with family or in hotels but this was by far my favorite experience and I'm hooked! Campsites have plenty of room. Clean... More

The campground provides plenty of activities for the entire family. The sites are so nice and the whole campground is clean and well kept up. We stayed at site 33 which is a premium site near...

We chose this campground based on the many things they offer kids for entertainment. My son loved the mini-golf course. However, I thought it was a little pricey for a simple tent site in the back. Be forewarned, there is no privacy. And especially since there were so many people when we were there, the bathrooms got a bit messy.... More

There is a pool, FREE mini gulf, playground, arcade room and there is a small creek that runs around the entire camp site. Overall it... More

I have spent different times of year at your campground but this last week was a disappointment. Every time we went to the bathroom it was nasty. Floors so wet you slipped when you walk. Didn't feel like taking a shower as they were the same. My son said men's restroom was the same. We started using restrooms behind store... More

As the owner, we would like to address the issues you had with this recent trip. The bathrooms being too wet were a result of the weather and also the vent fan that was down at the time. It was difficult to keep the floors dry between these two issues. We have had the vent fan fixed and we've been... More

We have camped at other Gatlinburg and Cosby campgrounds, but this one remains our go to place in that area. It has the right amount of amenities and activities to keep us occupied and yet enjoy ourselves and relax . We always have a good time camping there. The Campground owners and staff are friendly and efficient. The campground offers... More
