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

It is a very nice campground - clean, quite and well kept. The owners are super nice and helpful. We stayed in one of the cabins that the camp offers. It was a Baby Bear cabin - the smallest cabin they have. Just like advertised on the website, it is pretty small and doesn't have a shower - only toilet... More

Stayed there last weekend for a small rally and totally enjoyed my stay. The owner gladly honored my request for a site near the bathhouse upon reservation. She was welcoming and helpful upon check in. The campground itself is immaculate, especially the bath house. Since my little camper doesn't have a bathroom that is a primary concern for me. The...

Loved this park! So pretty in the fall. We did get a surprise snowfall and had no power for a day or so but it was still a great experience. Wifi was good and the management is very helpful. We travelled here in a motorhome and our friends in a 5th wheel, sites were big enough to accommodate the size... More

My husband and I enjoyed Smoky Bear Campground very much! We've been to many campgrounds in the past and I have to say they could all learn a lesson from the owners of this campground. There is not one single bad thing I can say. Owner and employee's very friendly and helpful, bath house/restrooms the cleanest I've ever seen and... More

We arrived after dark in the rain. The owners went out of their to help us get to our site and make sure we were settled. They came around the next day to check if everything was good. What a wonderful place to stay. We will be back
