We just returned from Elkmont campground and we had a great time! This campground is conveniently located near pigeon forge downtown. The campground really is as pretty as the pictures. Being there in mid-August we were treated to beautiful river.

Sometimes you can call but mostly like you are doing. It is so hard to get any site on the river. Our has always been across the river. If you live in / the area you could drive up. One thing I get discouraged about they... More
