We stayed there, it's clean and neat. Full hook up except for cable. They sites are tight.We had a site on the creek and across from the pond. The staff appeared to be young but knowledgeable. We'll go back.

I really enjoyed staying at Fort Tatham! It was close to Sylva, close to Franklin and so many other fun places. The bathrooms were decent, but staying by the creek was the best. It was close to the highway, which was a little noisy, but not bad!

My Partner and I always make it a point to make it to Fort Tatham from the NC coast each year. The staff is always so polite and we love staying in an RV they have onsite and hooked up. Cant beat it for the price and is in close driving proximity to many attractions

Listed on AllStays as having a dump station, but according to telephone staff they have NONE. Really? Uh, there is a 200 character minimum on this review so what else can I say? What RV Park doesn’t have a dump station????

We stopped for 2 nights while in the area on business. Place is clean, staff is friendly. Wifi worked well. Too close to the highway for us, and constantly hear semi engine brakes. No fire rings at site. Overall it was ok, but not worth the price. The noise was a huge factor for the rating.
