Very clean, great amenities, located conveniently; I recommend to stay at the Smoky Bear Campground which has super friendly staff. We stayed for four days in the middle of May while we visited Smoky Mountain National park, TN. This was an excellent campground with pull through spaces, shades, plenty of room between them. After we read several positive reviews about...

We traveled here with my friend family to visit the Smoky Mountain National Park, the Lost Sea and Gatlinburg. After reading previous reviews of the campground, I chose Smoky Bear and reserved a back in site number 20 and 19. What a beautiful park! This campground is an excellent park near Smokey Mt. National Park with plenty to do for...

We stayed 4 nights and had a great time. The staff members are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The facilities are wonderful and up to date. The location is out of the way of the hustle and bustle of the touristy traffic. We will definitely stay there again.

Want to stay at a "CLASSY" campground? This is it. We enjoyed our stay at this campground. Very nice sites, clean amenities, and the best campground owners ever. Very professional and accommodating. When we are in the area again this campground will be revisited. A special thank you to the staff at Smoky Bear.

This is the second time we have camped at Smoky Bear Campground & RV Park and we love it. Far enough out of time not to have much traffic, but close enough to the Park that you are there in no time. They have a top rating from one of the camping organizations and for good reason. Looking to come...

The campground was exceptional. Clean bathrooms, sites were very accommodating, water and sewer hookups worked great. We were too early in the season for the pool but the pool looked very well kept and clean. The internet worked very well, too.

This is a very clean, well maintained campground. The operators are very friendly and helpful. The sites are gravel and pretty close together, but we didn't have any trouble backing our 31' RV in. The sewer hookup was so far back on the site that we would have gone down the embankment if we backed up that far, so we...

We stayed at this campground in early March, before they were even officially open. They were very accommodating, though, and let us camp there anyway. The water hadn't been turned on so the bathrooms weren't open yet, but we checked them out and they were very nice. The grounds were exceptionally well kept. The staff was wonderful, even helping us...

We stayed in our motorhome for a number of days just prior to Easter. We were very pleased with our campsite and the amenities of the campground. The pool had yet to be opened for the season. The restrooms were immaculate as were the grounds. We will be sure to recommend this campground to our family and friends.

Claire could not have been more accommodating and helpful. We will most assuredly stay there if we are ever in the vicinity. The bathrooms were excellent and the showers had an ample supply of hot water. Laundry was very economical.
