Smoky Bear Campground & RV Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 10, 2011

We have been camping for years and have stayed at many campgounds and this one is simply one of the best. You can't go wrong at this campground which was built and is owned by a former RV'ing couple.

We had an excellent stay at Smoky Bear! The owner is very friendly and accommodating! She was an excellent hostess! The grounds are very well maintained and nicely landscaped. The bathrooms are very clean and roomy. The showers are nice and hot too. There's a small store on site which is very convenient as well. Overall, everything about Smoky Bear was great! I definitely recommend it!

We stayed for a week at this campground and found it to be one of the best campgrounds we have ever stayed at. The place is very well kept, with flowers and decorations all around, the sites are nice, most shaded and of good proportion, and almost all are very level. The shower house and restrooms are very clean and allways kept up. We cannot say enough good things about the owners either. They were personable and offered to help in so many ways. The park is located about 10-15 minutes from the edge of town and directly across the road from the National Park boundary. We have camped for years and I can honestly say this was the nicest campground we have ever stayed at, and the price is very reasonable too.

We camped at this CG for the first time the second week of September, when activity is traditionally slow in Gatlinburg, the National Park and all the lodgings, so we were welcomed with open arms. My main interest was whether or not there was any 'pickin' offered and the owner, Chong, assured me that there was; in fact, she nurtured music in her CG by offering a free dinner and inviting local musicians to eat and jam on Thursday nights. The jam session was a big success and in spite of the rain, the activity center was filled by 9 PM, with a clapping, singing audience and 6 musicians. Chong assured me that there are usually many more pickers, as this was the first session of the season, but everyone had a great time. As for the camping, the staff was everywhere, cleaning, maintaining, chatting, answering questions and the grounds are lovely, shady and neat. We camped in a Roadtrek and found the sites spacious and the gravel firm and level. Most of all, this is a caring and friendly staff and we will be back!

It was one of the cleanest campgrounds my husband & I have found over many years of camping. Chong & Barry went the extra mile in welcoming us.it felt more like a bed and breakfast than a campground. The washrooms were with out a dought the cleanest that we have ever seen any campground after we left that campground we went to a koa the washrooms were so small that you could not move with no place for your stuff. I think KOA should go and see Chong & Barry's campground to learn how to do it right.

Campground is very, very nice, level, and shaded. Takes big rigs, tents, or has cabins. All grounds, laundry, pool, spa are clean and comfortable. Owners are on site and very friendly. Lots to see in the area. Highly recommend this one.
