We stayed here for thanksgiving weekend. This is a smaller campground about 20 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg. Staff was very friendly at check in. We did have to do a bit of leveling since we had a gravel spot. Restrooms and showers were very clean, plenty of hot water and good water pressure. Unfortunately when we visited we were unable...

We were meeting family for Thanksgiving weekend and chose Gatlinburg. Our family joining us doesn't have an RV so we came here since it has cabins to rent for them and is a highly rated RV campground for us. Such an excellent choice. They had a wonderful community Thanksgiving meal for all campers, something we love doing. The family who... More

Small, clean, quiet campground. The hospitality afforded by the owners was some of the best we have ever experienced. We are living in an RV, and traveling to all 50 states this year, we have stayed in hundreds of parks along the way, and this was one of our favorites.

Nice smaller campground, staff was very friendly and area was very clean. We would stay there again if we are in the area. If you enjoy hiking there is a trail not too far from the camping area where you can see an old barn and some very interesting rock walls.

We loved the campground, location, clean bathhouse, and short drive into Gatlinburg! The staff was friendly and helpful. We visited in October and the foliage was beautiful! We will be sure to return again!

We just returned from a week at Smoky Bear Campground. The campground is quiet and clean. Laundry facility was great to have. Owners were very attentive to any problems! We have stayed in campgrounds over in Pigeon Forge and we much prefer the HWY 321 area for camping, it is much more peaceful. To be fair I must tell you... More

Will most definitely stay again! Great people and very very clean facilities. The parking is gravel but rv was pretty much level without putting anything down. We backed up to a nice forest. Very quiet at night.

We stayed in one of the beautiful cabins for 4 days. It was awesome. The cabin had a living/dining area, full kitchen, master bedroom, bath, and loft. It was spacious and had everything we needed to cook our own meals so we didn't have to eat out so often. The campground is secluded, beautiful, and peaceful. Wifi was available in... More

A very simple RV park with a few cabins scattered around. Not too big or commercialized. Bathhouse very clean, nice level spots, easy to navigate, free cable tv, wifi, and fire pits at each site. Staff very friendly checking in and made you feel like they really wanted you to stay with them. Very impressed at the cleanliness of the... More
