This is a beautiful, shady, peaceful campground. The folks who run the campground are very friendly and helpful. We stayed in a back-in site and had plenty of privacy. It's about a half hour drive or so from the "touristy" areas, but it was nice to be away from the hustle and bustle. Great stay!

Love this place! The owners make sure you have everything you need. Mature trees with lots of shade. Great for a couples getaway. Away from crowded areas of Gatlinburg, but just a short drive into downtown.

We had a wonderful stay at this campground - it is beautifully landscaped, has a playground that provided plenty of entertainment for my 3 year old, basketball court, horseshoes and cornhole as well. Staff was friendly and helpful, they picked up trash daily. Bathrooms very clean. The campground is a little away from some of the main tourist attractions, but...

From the time we pulled in until we left this is one of the best campgrounds we've stayed at Easy to see how they have earned their 5 star rating. The whole park is maintained very well and very clean too

Met up with my husband's family for a quick trip. This location is about 20-30 minutes out from the action, but the drive is pretty and beautiful. The campground has a nice little store to get some basic with information on everything to do in the area. The people that own/run the grounds are friendly and helpful. The place is...

Reserved a 30-amp gravel site approximately 3 weeks in advance. Received a friendly greeting upon arrival and friendly service during our stay. Due to a cancelation and to our pleasant surprise as towers of a 25-foot Flagstaff 25KS, even before our arrival, we had been relocated to a 50-amp concrete site, usually reserved for "big rigs" at no additional charge....

Clean, well kept, friendly and helpful staff, quiet campground. Shrubs/trees between most sites; spacious sites for a commercial campground. Fire pits. Our only complaint was the wi-fi, which is typical for RV parks: quality depends on day of the week, time of day, and proximity to the office. They had an event each of the Saturday nights we were there,...

Spent a long weekend tent camping at this small but incredibly welcoming campground. We actually had a back in site with water / electric and sewer and not a primitive tent site. The site was very roomy and level with a crushed gravel base. The sites for the most part offer shade and a nice, quiet stay. Our hosts and...

It is not a large campground. We prefer the smaller ones. Very clean. The staff werer very friendly and accommodating even though we asked a lot of questions. The pool and spa were well maintained as were the grounds. Trash pickup each morning in front of your site. Overall great stay.
