Camped here multiple times, with a 2-year lapse. Unfriendly staff upon check-in. We were in 57 and requested 55 when we pulled around to see the one we had stayed in before. We were told 55 and 53 were TENT sites.....C'mon, they have NOT listed them that way on the map, and were not tent sites 2 years ago. While we were there, they did not put anyone on those two sites. Seems they just did NOT want to do a little paperwork to make the change. And, we loved this place before when they had WOMEN and MEN facilities. Now they made them ALL unisex. They could have made the ones in the middle of both sides unisex and left the others, as, this would be safe for children and cleaner. Everything is NOT about political correctness. And why take out the playground BEFORE you build another? Not the friendly place it used to be and not the welcome feel it was. Did not feel "at home" or warm, friendly place anymore. $10.00 per day is way too steep to pay for an extra vehicle. Most other campgrounds do not charge that much. It's all about money now, clearly. We found a great little campground that we will make our stay when visiting next time.

We rented a 2 room cabin and found them to look brand new with great comfy beds and big thick pillows. The cabin is very small but have everything you need. Just not any room to hang out inside. It did look like fire pits and picnic tablets at each site. We did not participate in any of the kids activities but I did see a listing for them. I would come back because of the location and friendly staff. Almost forgot my kids favorite part - The back of the cabin area back up almost directly to Dollywood and you can hear the people scream while on the roller coasters.

You get the Jellystone price for your average campground. Very small and tight camping spots. Very expensive store and prices for any services. On the plus side the staff is extremely friendly and will do almost anything for you. Just over priced

Although we didn’t have a “bad” experience here, it’ definitely did not live up to our Jellystone expectations. I booked this without doing a lot of research only because of the Jellystone name, but I then found out it only recently became part of the chain of campgrounds. There is no where to park your camper at registration. It is a one way street with a small pull off. We traveled quite the distance and arrived early. Thankfully we were able to check in early because otherwise we would have had to leave and come back. If you pull a camper, you know that’s not always the easiest thing to do. As all others seem to say, the sites are small. We had a premium site and the concrete pad was nice, almost perfectly level, had a nice patio set, but there was barely any grassy space. Thankfully we didn’t have neighbors every night so our kids were able to ride their bikes on the empty pads. The circle driveway was rough and very difficult for kids to ride on. There are zero lights on the driveway either. We had some family staying in a rental camper a few sites down and you had to take a flashlight to walk there. Also people were parked everywhere. It would be very easy to have a hard time getting out with a big rig. The fire pit was on small amount of grass that there was, but a huge ditch was 3 feet from It. Couldn’t even sit a chair on that side. There wasn’t even a playground. It was on the map saying where it was, but when we asked the staff about it, they were rebuilding it because the other was about to fall down... well that’s great, but it seems if you’re going to be a Jellystone, you at least need a playground. They had a few activities posted, but nothing like previous Jellystone where we’ve stayed. The staff was very nice, we had no issues there. If you’re looking for a place to park your camper and sleep, this will work just fine, but don’t expect Jellystone quality just yet. Seems they are working to get there, but I just think the remodeling should have been done prior to the changeover. Kids at least need a playground and room to run and play. This is not easily done here. Pigeon Forge has plenty of activities to do outside of the campground so I wouldn’t exclude it entirely, but it all depends on what you like to do while camping. If it involves relaxing at your campsite, this is probably not the best place. Here’s to hoping they live up to the Jellystone name soon.
