Whispering River is a wonderful campground for tent/rv campers or cabin rentals. They offer spacious sites, an excellent bathhouse, laundry facilities and a great pool. The river is a short walk away and is the best place to cool off on hot days. I would highly recommend giving them a chance, you won't be disappointed. New owners are very friendly... More

Initially booked a 3 night double campsite at the Tremont outdoor resort, but was willing to lose the over $400 non-refundable cost, to find a pleasant place to camp and enjoy the smokies. What a wonderful find this was. We were looking for a quite tent camp site on the river which is near impossible to find around Tremont, except... More

My boyfriend and I go camping with another couple and all our kids often. This is the second camping trip this summer and we LOVED this place. The owners were super nice and friendly. The bath house was very clean and has individual bathrooms/showers. The pool was also clean and very relaxing. We are already making plans to come back... More

This is a great place to relax and enjoy yourself. Though you are not far from the highway you cannot see it and you rarely hear it; I forgot it was even there. It's like a secluded little paradise for RVers. Management is friendly, the sites are well maintained, the bath house is clean, and the showers are hot! It's... More

This haven is a true gem of a campground perfectly situated between Maryville and Gatlinburg. The facilities are in excellent condition and well maintained with plenty of space between sites. The staff is very knowledgable, friendly, and eager to make your visit a personable experience. I'm an avid fisherman and the river is not only beautiful but full of wildlife,... More

We've camped here on and off for the last six years. Currently we have been here for six weeks and love it! The views of the mountains are unparalleled and everyone is friendly and easy to get along with, which includes all the staff. Yes, there is a rooster here. I've named him Rocky. He walks around the campground and... More

The area is beautiful and rural with great views of the mountains. You pull in and think that you are going to have a nice and relaxing vacation with spectacular views. You stay up late your first night with a fire going. Awesome right? NOT! At 2:30AM a rooster started crowing. Then again at about 4:30 then it went on... More

We certainly want our guests to enjoy all that the resort has to offer. We are lucky enough to have 40 Acres surrounded by mountains and wildlife. On any given day you might see flocks of Geese, Rabbits, Deer, Birds, and much more. We have farms near the campground so you might even hear a Cow. The Rooster does not... More

Great campground. Clean bathrooms and showers. Full hookups with free cable. Mature crowd. Pool was great and they are working to update jacuzzi. The cottages looked very nice although we did not stay in them. River frontage and great place to walk and explore

It is also apparent that they do not maintain electrical system. When I left I noticed plug had been melted (but a loose connection ).

Mr. McPherson, we are sorry you experienced electrical problems at the campground. Our number one priority is customer service from the moment you book your stay throughout your entire trip. We cannot achieve this goal without proper maintenance of the entire campground. I have stressed this throughout my 25 years in the recreation business. We have had thousands of RV's... More
