Lots of shade, very clean and well kept; very friendly and helpful staff; really enjoyed the pool and hot tub after long day of motorcycle riding! Easy to find location and central to many great locations in the ''smokies', but out of the congestion of the major destinations. Great BBQ nearby, and plenty of places to eat within a few...

We enjoyed our stay here so much we added two extra nights, and still didn't want to leave. The sites are nice and shady, and the location is great. It is close to all of the attractions in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, but away from the traffic and noise. It is also located close to several of the National Park...

This was our first experience camping with our new travel trailer. The time we spent at the campground was very peaceful. The grounds were beautiful. I loved all the flowers around the camp sites. The next time we go to Gatlinburg, we will definitely book our vacation here.

This is by far the best campground I have experienced. I usually go to State Parks and felt that I was taking a chance on a private campground. What a delight! Most impressive: air conditioned bathrooms, clean as my own home, not a bug or spider or cobweb in site! The campground has only 50 sites. Extremely well maintained. Even...

We are a family of 4 from Illinois, stayed here for our week's vacation. I think the staff was excellent and tried their hardest to make us have a great time. The grounds and pool area were very well cared for and clean. Our site had poor wifi , so I would invite smoky bear to upgrade that but overall,...

We stayed 6 nights in this spotlessly clean Campground. Close to the attractions & but far enough away from the busyness of Gatlinburg.The owners are very friendly & helpful. They had a list of things to do in area which was very helpful. The kids had a nice time in pool when we came back to unwind. I would definitely...

Just far enough away from all the traffic in Pigeon Forge and downtown Gatlinburg to be able to relax in peace.Close to the Great Smokey Mountains. The staff is friendly, the campgrounds are clean, the bath house is very,very clean. I can see why it was one of the best campgrounds in America. We will go back !!!!!
