“weekend trip”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

My husband and I stayed here after reading the review on here. So glad we did-the owners were super friendly and kept the grounds and restrooms immaculate. My biggest complaint was the location of the tent sites in relevance to the rvs. The area the tents were located was shaped like a "u" with the rvs being on either side of the tent sites and the tents in the middle. The rvs were loud at times being early in the am or later in the evening. The camp sites were very close to one another and when you are trying to sleep at midnight and having someone set up a tent right next to you that can be very aggrivating. I am not sure what their "late check in" policy is, but midnight is ridiculous! Yes there was traffic noise, but it personally didnt bother us. My husband was pleased with the wifi speed, which is something that is important to him. There was more than enough tent sites avail, why they had to be next to us i dont know. But we would definately stay there again-just hope for a better tent location.

We tried this campground for the first time this October and LOVED everything about it! The owners are very friendly and helpful. Everything about the campground from the grounds to the laundry house is IMMACULATE and in good working order. Also a very pretty location and nestled down off the road next to the woods with a creek running behind our camper. Nice quiet campground that is just a few minutes from downtown Gatlinburg. We rode the trolly mostly and loved it. Trolly stop is right at the entrance to the campground. Price for the campground is nice as well. Also, a convenience store is located right next to the campground which came in very handy. Will definitely stay here again.

Great campground and location. Friendly staff, WiFi worked fantastic, and the bathrooms, showers, laundry room and swimming pool are kept very clean. The trolley stops right in front of the campground and there is a small grocery store right next door which was convenient. Very reasonably priced too. Will definitely stay here again.

Cleanest bathhouse I've ever seen. Right off 321 so you do get traffic noise. Earplugs fix that. Most of the campgrounds we considered staying were right on the road too.
Someone commented that the lights were too bright. Usually, I sleep with an eye mask. One night I forgot it but the light didn't bother me at all.
They explained the rules to us when we got to the site. They acted like they would be strict but people parked on the grass and one campsite had two tents. The campsites were long and skinny.
The location was very convenient for going to Gatlinburg, especially with the trolley ($8 parking in town compared to $0.50 each way). We didn't try but I think you could jump trolleys in town to go to pigeon forge as well.

Managers Bob and Bonnie were Great!!!! They directed us to the nearest places to get items we needed. After we settled in Bob and Bonnie came to the site and asked if there was anything we needed. They went far to ensure we had a wonderful time. This is the cleanest campground I have ever seen. I would recommend this campground in a heart beat. I can't wait until next year to go back!

My husband and I stopped at another campground before coming to this one. The price was extremely high, so we drove to this campground. It is quiet but still close enough to town. The trolley stops here every 30 minutes and will take you into town.
The restrooms and showers are extremely clean and nice pool!

We really enjoyed our 5 night stay and it is very reasonable ($25 water/electric, $35 for full hook up) compare to the others in the area this was the cheapest!

We will be back!

Room Tip: This is a campground, the fitness center is the mountains!

The campground is clean. The pool is clean. The boxes are doubled so I almost needed an extra cord. Close to downtown but far enough out that we did not have to be bothered. Nice place to camp. My son loved the creek. Will stay there again.

Room Tip: Dollar General next door has some food. Food City west of campground by a mile. There is a great str...
