There is a pretty nice RV resort in Pidgeon Forge right on the main road..River Country I think is the name. Clean and reasonable...bathouses are nice...they have cabins that are really reasonable esp. in off season!!!

creek side rv park in pigeon forge

nice sites, spotless restrooms, on the trolley route, clean pool, easy in and out

I don't think there are any campsites in Gattlinburg. Don't take your RV into Gattlinburg (it's like being at the beach but in the mountains). to much traffic and only a couple of streets.

Must do's: Ripleys aquarium, Hollywood wax museum, Buba Gumps

Were giving some heavy thought to a cabin for this xmas in TN. Ive done alotta web searching, and the views from some are unbelievable, and the prices are do-able.

Before we bought the TT we had a great cabin connection, I will see if I can find them if they are still around.

Townsend, TN nearby has some great camping from what I understand. I've stayed at the KOA there. It's pricey, but nice. There are several other campgrounds in the area also.

Coming into Gatlinburg on 321 there are several campgrounds. Twin Creek is closest to town and has a trolley stop.

I prefer Pigeon Forge. We've camped at the following and can recommend!

River Plantation - Best hands down in my opinion
Kings Holly Haven
Creekside
Brookside

I just returned from that area. We stayed at a hotel though in Townsend. I was up there for the Tenn State Harley rally. I saw tons of campgrounds in every city. I think it depends on how close you want to be to the action and how much amenities you want in the campground. I did notice Creekside in Pidgeon Forge and it looked nice from the road. But thats the only name I noted. I would suggest researching the area and considering what your gonna be doing. Then focus on camping closer to that area. Heres a picture to get you excited.

Ahhhhh those Smoky Mountains!!! And to think I gave up some property right in the midst of them in order to live closer to WDW.

I'll repeat myself from another thread....WHAT WAS I THINKING????
