Very clean and friendly. Really enjoyed the creek view and the peace and quite of the surroundings. Far enough from the attractions of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg but close enough to enjoy it. Really enjoyed being minutes away from all the wonderful trails of the Smokies.

We could have used a heads up about water spickets being off for the winter, we were u sure if the blue ones were safe to drink from. The wifi worked on one side of the cabin, at least that side worked well. Other than that, the staff were friendly and helpful, had a pleasant stay.

What a wonderful campground. We stayed in a deluxe cabin and we had much more than expected. Even watched some wildcard NFL games on ESPN. Cooked some steaks on the grill and had a fire outside. Firewood was even delivered after purchasing it at the local store. Can't say enough about your place. Very pleased.

We are already planning our next trip. The campground was wonderful and right on the river!!! It is just seconds from the Smoky Mountain National Park and in a quiet, laid back town. We LOVED it!!

The deluxe cabin was great. Only suggestion would be to include a sponge mop and a deck broom as it was hard to keep floors clean with the rain etc.

This is a beautiful campground with a great staff. The location is perfect. Great for both families and/or couples.

We have always stayed here multiple times in the past and always had a great experience. This time they mixed up our reservation and didn't give us the cabin ee reserved they gave us a smaller one where we were very cramped. the shampoo dispensers were empty and our bed linens were dirty. We always bring our own no prob. told us we could leave we had nowhere to go all full new years.

Beautiful location and close enough to the major attractions but still feels like you're out in the wild a beautiful river runs right next to the campsite and you're surrounded by mountains we loved it

Stayed in lot 82 for 6 nights. Great staff. Beautiful spot. We loved our stay

The campground is very nice, very neat. If I was going to camp somewhere and sight see all around the site, this would be the place to go. My only "dislike" was that you're neighbors are really close! Most of the State parks are a bit more spread out. But a very nice campground!

Everything was GREAT, except the fold out couch mattress was molded and just disgusting in general. It was full of stains and smelled.

I love this campground. You really feel like you are in the Smoky's. No hustle and bustle, just quite and peaceful camping.

Beautiful campground. The only thing I wish were different, is the early time that the game room closed. Should at least we 10 pm.

The help was great. Very nice area we had. Love the view of the river. Very clean park and friendly staff. We will be back to stay again.

Campground was clean, well kept, maintained and staff was very friendly and helpful. Location is perfect close to Cades cove, Gatinburg, & Pigeon Forge but with more of a quiet laid-back atmosphere!
