We booked a Cabin for our Stay and Play at the Water Safari. The Websites for both could be better. I am a researcher and really only got the "insider facts" from reviews. Driving through Old Forge was great. It is a very quaint walking town. Check In was fast and efficient. The waiver you sign regarding the Bears is... More

My family of two adults and two teens stayed at this camp ground for two nights. The atmosphere was bustling and welcoming when I arrived to check in at the lodge in the rain. The woman who checked us in was patient and helpful as I weighed the option of changing from our tent site reservation to a cabin. We... More

This campground was wonderful. The staff was friendly and helpful, workers raked and cleaned campgrounds immediately upon checkouts, they came immediately when we called about an issue. The amenities are good - clean showers, nice store, laundry room, a pretty lake in the middle of the campground, though internet was only available at the office/store. Close to Old Forge, with...

Our family has been coming here for over a decade. The staff is friendly and courteous, especially Jim. The sites are clean and quiet. Water safari is within walking distance, or you can take a shuttle bus. Bears don't seem to be a problem if you keep food locked up, along with keeping your cars locked at all times. My... More

We camped at this "resort" this past weekend and boy we're we in for a treat. We checked in Saturday morning and set up our tents. After having an exhausting day of traveling to old forge, getting the camp squared away, swimming and hiking - we laid down to go to bed at around 11:00pm. That's when the fun begins... More

We stayed here 3 years ago for 2 nights and didn't enjoy it. However we were coming through, going to the water park and thought we'd give it a 2nd chance for 1 night. We booked a pull though and were given 332A. We've stayed at approximately 15 different RV parks in the last few years and this has to... More

The first night we stayed there we did not see any bears but heard other campsites scaring the Bears away from them. I've read... More

Thank you for the intelligent discussion about the wildlife here Clayton. The bears, although a nuisance at times, were here first. It is always important to remember that they are wild animals. We are all guests in their world and it is important that we all remember that, and try to respect them and their environment. Not keeping the sites... More

This is the second year we have rented a Cottage and we have loved it. The campground has any and all amenities you could ask for. Everything is kept very clean and it has proven to be a quiet place, the two times we've been. I have to shake my head when I read the complaints about bears! YOU ARE... More

We stayed 1 night,everything was Great , with the exception of the Bears. Didn't get much sleep on account of wondering if the Bears were gonna break through the Cabin. Had them on our Porch and running throughout the site. Kinda Freaky ! Think we will stay elsewere on account of this.
