“Great place to stay to when visiting the smoky mountains.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

What a wonderful place to stay. Everything is so nice and clean. Plenty of things to do in the campground and in the area. The workers are an excellent group of people. The owner visits with everyone. Very large sites, plenty of room between campers and what a view. If you're in the area, stop and stay awhile.

My first impression of this campsite is how well loved it is. The grounds are very well maintained and the mountain views are spectacular. My parents stayed in their RV and my husband and I stayed in the cabin and we all loved it! We had dinner on the huge porch every night and would take in the beautiful sunsets.

We were there for Father's Day and the management had a huge dinner spread to honor all dads. We must've been invited by every staff member that we ran into that day. There is a real sense of community at this park and everyone was so friendly! Not to mention, it's a great area for pets - lots of dog lovers were there while we stayed there.

Room Tip: After walking around, I believe every site offers a great view! There's only one cabin now but...

This is a very nice campground, which the owners are diligently working to further improve. Pool, restrooms/showers, and clubhouse are extremely clean and well maintained. Laundromat and restrooms were superb. The sites are close together and trees are not yet mature enough to provide shade. Our gravel surface site was almost level. Propane refill was quick. As the landscaping matures this has potential to be a beautiful park. Owners and staff are friendly and attentive. We enjoyed our stay and are recommending to camping friends.

Room Tip: If you have a long travel trailer, 5th wheel or motor home verify the site is long enough to accommo...
