We bring our scout group here every year. Management is wonderful to work with. The resort is convenient to Cades Cove and many hiking trails. They understand the need that we have as a scout group to have a safe place in case of hazardous weather and has offered to let us use their banquet area for our group to...

This RV park and campground is very close to the Smokeys, and on the river. It also has a bath house with individual private bathrooms with showers. Those are the good things. There is a lot of noise from traffic as the place is right off the highway. The woman that works in the office (she is married to the...

Thank you for the review. You are correct, the lack of leaves during the winter will not produce much shade, and does impact the barrier trees across the river by the highway. Our sites are 45% larger than the industry average. There are no permanent residents, and the 10pm noise ordinance is strictly enforced.

We had a pull through RV spot. This resort does rent cabins. Although the cabins are along the river, there is a major highway just on the other side of the river so if you are seeking a peaceful quiet cabin, this won't be it. However, the noise does not affect the RV spots since they are set back from...

We enjoyed our stay here, the area is close by everything and the scenery is quite beautiful. We travel FT and have been on the road now for 1 1/2 years and have loved this journey and all the people we have met. I understand that most of the people in the office are work campers and usually friendly as...

Thank you for your review. I own the issue with the puppy. We are extremely pet friendly and had just rescued Cooper and I wanted to see if he was office friendly. He is a yapper and I apologize, obviously he wasn't "office ready". I discussed your issues with the office. The lawn was getting mowed when you checked in,...

We stayed here over the Labor Day holiday. The campground was extremely busy, but we found it to be very quite. Would recommend limiting people coming in very late at night, after midnight. Location is nice to maryville and the smokies.

Whispering River is a wonderful campground for tent/rv campers or cabin rentals. They offer spacious sites, an excellent bathhouse, laundry facilities and a great pool. The river is a short walk away and is the best place to cool off on hot days. I would highly recommend giving them a chance, you won't be disappointed. New owners are very friendly...

Initially booked a 3 night double campsite at the Tremont outdoor resort, but was willing to lose the over $400 non-refundable cost, to find a pleasant place to camp and enjoy the smokies. What a wonderful find this was. We were looking for a quite tent camp site on the river which is near impossible to find around Tremont, except...

This is a great place to relax and enjoy yourself. Though you are not far from the highway you cannot see it and you rarely hear it; I forgot it was even there.

It's a dream come true for a romantic getaway. Enjoy log cabins on the side of the Little River in the Smokey Mountains. From your bedroom window you can count the trout in the river and when you have a warm fire in the fireplace and your loved one by your side as you listen to the river just outside your window; nothing in the world could be better. ... more   less
