The campground itself was clean, well maintained, and had a friendly staff! My only frustration was that it appeared from the description online and the photos that it was secluded and rustic, rather than in the heart of tourist-land in Pigeon Forge. Being awakened by the sound of the garbage truck each morning at 4am was not in my plan (though not the fault of the KOA, I recognize!)

The facilities are fine and it is centrally located for Pigeon Forge, but the location is too urban: bright and noisy at night.

The campground facilities were clean. The sites are a little close together for primitive tent sites. Good place to stay when seeing area attractions because there is a trolley that will take you on the strip, to Dollywood and to Gatlinburg.

The bathrooms were exceptionally nice, with soap dispensers and automatic paper towel holders. There were 3 showers and 4 stalls. There was a nice pool, hottub, and laundry area. There was also a kitchen area to cook food with a sink and picnic table. Compared to other campgrounds, this was the nicest one for us.

Pros: Convenient location Friendly staff Tent camping rates were reasonable Cons: We had site 30. Felt very cramped against the corner tent camping spot (31). Our picnic tables were approximately 5 ft apart, and parking was tight to allow them access.

The pictures of the campsite were very misleading as there is a motel on the other side of the sewage infested river. Not a peaceful site like we normally expect when we are camping. The advertised wifi did not work and the staff were not very friendly/helpful in fixing it.

The campground is nice and has a lot of extras. My 5 year old son loved the heated pool. The only draw back is that this campground is in the middle of the city. Not the middle of the woods like we wanted. But still GREAT!

It is very convenient to the heart of Pigeon Forge and to Dollywood. The people were very nice and helpful. The facility was clean and kept up nicely. The tent sights were well set up and the layout was pretty simple to understand. The only complaint I had was that it felt cramped. The roads were narrow and the turns were sharp. Anyone with a larger unit may have trouble getting in and out easily.

We stayed in a no hook-up sight next to the river and loved it! Convenient to attractions and restaurants. Perfect if you plan on going to the Old Mill or Patriot Park just steps away! We have already recommended the camp and booking our next trip!

Nice facility but if you want peace and quite this is not the place if you are in a tent you are right behind the main strip in pigeon forge lots of traffic noise and trash pick up at the motels is very loud at 2 am I will not be staying at this KOA again.

water and electricity would be nice for tenters.

Great stay other than the wasps, the poison ivy, and the ants covering our tent site. Friendly people and affordable prices. It seemed as though we just got the bad tent site, all the others looked great.

Very clean, all employees were helpful!

We didn't get to enjoy some of the amenities as we were mainly only there to sleep however the bathroom stalls were very small, showers dirty and tent camping by the river very noisy. Staff was friendly and quick to help upon making our reservations. Would possibly stay again but only in a camper.

It was good except when we had a tornado warning and needed to take shelter, there was only the restrooms and they were very crowded. I didn't like that no one from the campground checked up on the campground afterwards. Other than that it was ok.

Best aspect of campground was location next to Patriot Park with loop trail. Please remodel the toilet stalls in the bathroom. There is barely enough room to move around.

Should be rv only. And even then not boast about being on little pigeon river. The river is contaminated with "fecal matter". Didn't smell it but there were signs not to swim or fish. So don't know the point of it. Nice laundry, pool, playground, and bathrooms. Too small for all the sites they squeeze in. An price is too high for sites they offer.

The stay was horrible. I mean the campsites were way to close together and then we find out that the river were next to has fecal matter making the water useless. The trip was a complete bust.

Not a bad campsite but staff could use a little cheering up and better knowledge of area services bathrooms and showers could use updating and pool times need to have adult times only

friendly staff, clean facility but we were disappointed that the tent sites were across from streets & parking lots.

Tent site 33 worst location imagine able to place a late arrival guest. Sloping tent site facing a brightly lit hotel, no grass and all mud location. Tent slab falling away into creek and slanting at least 10 degrees downward toward creek. No adherence to quiet hours policy made for a horrible night. Non-existent customer service and no desire to make right.

Clean bathrooms....but our site looked out on hotel parking lot and convenience store....

Pro: clean, shady, maintained, close to attractions. Con: tent pads not level, city noise at night
