This campground was closed in May of 2016 by order of a federal judge because of ongoing crime, drug dealing, theft and violence. All occupants were evicted. "This place was completely corrupted with alcohol, drugs, crime. Just two days ago in the middle of the day my wallet got stolen out of the front seat of my truck which was...

This place was not far from the main strip. It was very quiet and everyone was very nice and helpful. Not the cleanest but ok for tent camping. Be sure to bring all bathroom things you need. They do not supply theses things.

It was trashy...and no pull thru sites...it had some mobile homes and rv that needed to be burned. We only stayed there because there was no other park available. It could be a nice park with clean up. The office people were nice but the office was nasty and smelled like a cigarette. Will not go back till park is...

This is not what is shown on the website. My husband went to check in and could not believe his eyes. There was a mattress laying outside that had been in the weather for awhile. There was runned down trailers all around. When he got the keys and looked inside the "cabin" the bedclothes were nasty, the bed was set...

Let me start by saying - the other reviews are pretty accurate. This is indeed a trailer park. We stayed in a cottage which consisted of two queen sized beds, an AC unit, a mini fridge, and a microwave. Since we had read other reviews we knew to bring our own TP and linens. Despite the no smoking sign on...

Yes, this was probably the last campsite I would have booked if I had driven around and looked at all of the ones near by. The website had made it appear to be sunny, happy and friendly. It appeared to be "shady", with some interesting looking residents walking around but the few people who spoke to us were very nice....

My family and I booked this "campground" for a recent trip to the Smokey Mountains and the east coast. It turned out to be a trailer park you only thought existed in the movies. I will let our pictures speak for themselves, but please find any other campground in the area. We left in less then 12 hours...

The nastiest, scariest place I think we have ever stayed. Dirty screaming kids running amuck. We would have left had we not been exhausted and needed to sleep a few hours. That's all the sleep we had because screaming kids were out until after 1AM. We also saw the owner and a "local renter" get into an argument and the...

This has got to be the worst campground ever, the cabin smells, dirty, no curtains, bugs, unclean bedding, no towels and we went into town and came back and strange people in our cabin, they rented it to others thinking we had abandoned which we tried to but no where else had vacancy, the smell of cat urine all over...
