“A+++ Experience-Highly Recommend this campground”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2010

I would highly recommend this campground to ANYONE traveling to Gatlinburg. The owners are amazing,down to earth people. The campground is the CLEANEST I have stayed at...the bathrooms/showers are so clean they make the ones at home look dirty! The park itself is very cute and quit. My daughter fell in love with this place. Chong and her husband (owners) are great people who actually care about the park and the families that visit there. It is close by Gatlinburg, but far enough away to be just the right spot for rest and relaxation after a long touristy day! Thank you Smokeybear for a wonderful stay!

My Wife and I recently spent 9 nights at the Smoky Bear Campground with our wonderful & superb hosts, Chong & Barry O' Leary. The "5 Star" rating isn't high enough.....there should be a "6 Star rating" for a place like Smoky Bear Campground because the intricate attention to detail is in everything that you use, see, or touch all during your stay. The bathroom/shower facilities are spotlessly clean, and nicely decorated, as is the laundry facilities, and the entire RV Park & Campground. The newly cemented pull through sites are indicative of the attention to detail because they are perfectly level and have just a slight taper on the left side of the pad, that allows for better drainage of fluids through the septic hose. My Wife and I have camped in KOA's and privately owned campsites from Alaska to Louisiana, from Michigan to Washington State, and we have never - ever been in a RV Park like Smoky Bear Campground. The personal attention that Chong & Barry give to their customers, and their ability to make you feel like their family is wonderful and something I have never experienced from owners/caretakers of any RV Park we have stayed in throughout the United States. If you have questions, please feel free to contact me. Sincerely, Dick

This is a great place to stay ! The area is beautiful, well kept, and the bath facilities exceptionally clean and nice. The owners are super, and we really enjoyed our 2 week stay. Chong and Barry made you feel welcome and like part of a big family instead of only a customer. We will definitely stay here again and again!!! Recommend
to anyone looking for a super clean, quiet place with all the basic ammenites and more.

We love this little campground! It's like home when we visit the Smokies. We've camped at most of the other campgrounds in Gatlinburg and now we call this one home. You are treated like family the minute you enter the grounds. Clean doesn't begin to describe the facilities. You can tell that the owners really care and we always look forward to see what they've done since we were last here. Our lab loves it here too! It's hard to choose which season we like best and there is so much to do, but it is also nice to hang out in our RV, sit by the fire and relax.

This campground is adorable and clean, clean, clean. The owners are super friendly and helpful. My husband and I are new with our travel trailer and the owner himself helped us back it in. The rest rooms are immaculate, well stocked with paper products and beautifully decorated. It's a little bit outside of Gatlinburg, but there's a great apple orchard just down the road that sells awesome apple cider in the fall. We loved this campground and will visit again.

We booked 3 nights at this campground. It was a bit out of town which is what I wanted to be out of the rat race at night. The campground is very well kept, the owners are friendly and made sure things were very comfortable for us. The bathrooms are exceptionally clean as is the camp itself. Would recommend it to anyone.

  • Liked — Fair price , cleanliness

Smallish very well kept campground with very clean bathrooms.
I would recommend it to anyone. The drive was a little inconvenient to get into Gatlinberg but if you want to be away from the crowds and tourism and experience the beauty of the area while having hookups and cable etc , this is the spot. We stayed here in a travel trailer.

  • Liked — Very pretty spot
