Since the day we called to make a reservation we were treated like family, but the not too smothering kind! Chong and Barry helped us register and get set up at camp when we arrived. The campground is a nice size and is laid out on the rolling hills. It was relatively full when we were there but it never... More

This was our third summer staying at this campground... Barry and Chong always go out of their way to accommodate our requests and treat us like family. The facilities are immaculate and I would say to those who don't like the cable, stay somewhere else. But, you'll pay a whole lot more to watch TV when you're supposed to be... More

This is a lovely campground just outside of the main Gatlinburg hustle and bustle. It is one of the cleanest and prettiest campgrounds we have been to. There are flowers and bushes throughout the campground. The owners are very helpful and concerned about making your stay a good one. We stayed for a weekend this July, and would love to... More

We have been traveling for a month so we have stayed in many campgrounds..from state parks to "luxury"campgrounds and this has been one of our favorites. Very clean and well-kept, nice shaded sites, incredibly nice, helpful owners, Barry and Chong. They gave us great recommendations forlocal sights to see and they were very accommodating. We are traveling in a 45ft... More

It was our first time visiting the Smokies, first time towing our camper. We arrived quite late almost around midnight, but Patrick was still there at the gate house and guided us to our site. I had a tough time backing in the camper, thank Patrick's great help, we made it without hitting a tree or falling into the ditch.... More

Smoky Bear Campground is a clean, family friendly place to stay near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The owners are accommodating in handling requests, knowledgable of the area, and genuinely kind. We stayed in two cabins (because we made reservations so late and close to our arrival time, we had to change cabins after the first night). Both cabins... More

My husband, grandson, 4 Chihuahuas and I took our new camper on a trip to the Smokies. While searching for possible places to stay that were pet friendly, we came upon Smoky Bear CG's website. We are certainly glad that we decided to stay there...it was wonderful! The owner is so nice to deal with. We asked for a site... More

Great, great place. Small AND intimate little campground with all the amenities of larger, more crowded, campsites. The owner and her son are such good people. If I may, here is some advice for the first timers to the area. Make sure you visit their website. There is a lot of good information there. I-40 is under construction so pay... More

Quaint RV part outside of Gatlinburg. 1) Cleanest restrooms I've EVER seen! 2) Owner, Chong and son, Patrick, were wonderful and very helpful with information on local area activities--every recommendation was spot on. 3) Yes... 20 min outside of Gatlingburg but it's part of its charm... after a busy day of activities it was nice to get away to a...

Our family enjoys tent camping, but there are few options near Gatlinburg outside of the National Forest. Most everything in the vicinity is much too commercial for our tastes. The Smoky Bear Campground offers the perfect happy medium between the primitive National Forest sites and the flashing neon RV villages. We love to stay in site 8, since it is... More
