Great hikes right from the campground Comfortable and clean and away from the mobs in town. We hated to leave Great source of lesser known walks in the park and local walks. Would stay again, very quiet

Campground is very clean. Big rig accessible. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The owner stopped by to introduce himself shortly after checking in. We stayed in spot 48 which is a long pull through capable of our 45 motor home and SUV tow vehicle. Connections were easily accessible. Pad was concrete, level and shaded with a picnic table...

We stayed at the cabin and we loved it. The cabin was super clean and cute, all wood, with the wonderful scent of raw wood. Campground is perfectly clean. Te owners are very friendly and beyond helpful. Highly recommend!

We felt comfortable from the start with a clean park entrance and warm and friendly welcome at the office. Stayed in #44 which is a pull through and 50 amp service for $45. We traveled from Massachusetts to Florida and we are on our way back to MA. This is definitely one of the best overall parks. At the front... More

We loved the people at this park. They were so friendly. Nice paved roads on level concrete pad is what we picked. Tucked away nicely in the forest right off the main road. There are cabins and back ins but we did not use either. There was a nice little valley to run our dogs in the park and that... More

My mom and I stayed here for one night this past weekend. We called on our way and were delighted to hear there was availability. The owner gave us directions over the phone and said there would be a site waiting for us. We got there several hours later with our brand new camper. The owner of the campground checked... More

Very clean and well maintained. Stayed in site #21. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Only complaint was a very weak cable television signal with 5 channels. Take the owners advice and take advantage of the free sites at the park and stay way from the commercial stuff. We originally planned to go to Dollywood for 2 days but instead went... More

Smoky Bear Campground is an excellent family campground near Gatlinburg. The sites were large. Restrooms, laundry, and entire campground was very clean. Staff was very friendly. We felt comfortable having our small children because it was safe, clean, and quiet. It is located a short drive outside of the busy town of Gatlinburg. So you can enjoy a nice quiet... More
