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

We just returned yesterday from our stay at Smoky Bear Campground and we want to go back!! We stayed 4 nights at the Teddy bear cabin with our 3 kids. We absolutely fell in love with the cabin. It far exceeded our expectations! The kids loved the loft. The campground is so clean and quiet. EVERYONE who works there is... More

This is just a fabulous campground; can't say enough nice things about it and the owners. They truly make everyone feel like you are visiting their home; not just a campground. The bathrooms were the cleanest I have seen in a campground and the grounds were landscaped nicely. We had an ice cream social, games and dancing for the kids... More
