We rented 4 cabins, and when we arrived they charged us $60 for the sheets and towels. We had rented for three consecutive years and had never been charged for towels and sheets. By last! We handed the keys to the four cabins, and they charged me $ 22.45, for a key to one of the cabins that they themselves... More

Spent a week at Bear Cove. Staff were ready for us upon arrival, very welcoming, park is super clean and very well run. So convenient to Dollywood and Pigeon Forge attractions. Enjoyed the level concrete pads, nice landscaping, steel fire rings, and garbage pick up at each site in the blink of an eye. Premium site well worth the $$.

We rented the Bear Essentials cabin (small ones) for 2 adults/2 kids. Normally, hotel rooms don't work out the best bc the kids want to stay up until we go to bed. I really liked that the kids have a separate tv and there is a door to our room so they can get some rest, and it was more... More

This was our first time ever camping, as it was a long overdue promise to our son. We ended up having a great time camping at Bear Cove. The bathhouse facilities were especially nice and CLEAN. I felt safe in our location. The grounds were close to Dollywood and the main Pigeon Forge attraction area. We had no trouble making... More

This location is wonderful! So close to Dollywood that we could hear the screams and train whistle from Dollywood. It allows you to visit places like the Island without fighting the parkway traffic. As for the campground itself, the spaces are a little tight. I think that is typical of this area. At least here, no one is behind you.... More

My family and I have stayed here three different times. Nice and quiet. Has hot showers, nice swimming pool. Office people are very nice and friendly, willing to help if you ask. Know the area and things to do. They have nice cabins and a fishing pond.

Very tight sites with little room to park your vehicle. Our site was so small we could not have an outside living space unless we wanted to park our vehicle in the overflow parking. We also could not extend our awning completely. These sites are far from private as stated on the website.

The staff is exceptional! While the spots are close together, the landscaping is wonderful, the resort is clean! We had an original spot of 63... our coach is almost 41' and we couldn't get level without a lot of concrete blocks (which they brought to us asap). We ended up moving to 38. Much more accommodating for our big rig!... More

We just returned from a 10 day stay, our first, with Heather and John at Bear Cove Village. I can't say enough about their Tennessee charm and friendliness. They couldn't do enough for us while we were there. They are two amazing people The facilities are up-to-date and very clean and comfortable. The campsites are great, with grass and new... More
