Small but has all of the best conveniences of your larger 5 star RV parks. The owners and staff are friendly and eager to help in anyway. They escort you to your site and assist you if needed for back-in sites. Each site has nice picnic table and fire ring. Excellent bathrooms and showers as well as laundry room. Nice... More

My husband just got back to Canada from staying at the camp ground. We went based on the reviews here and were happy with the outcome. Only thing we didnt like was the gravel tent sites that popped our air mattress even though we had several layers between the stones and it. We would have like some sort of grass... More

Smoky Bear Campground and RV is a beautiful place for your RV! It is small but has everything you need. Paved pull-through sites were perfect for our 38 ft RV. Perfect place to come to visit Great Smoky Mtn National Park.

We booked our stay based on the reviews here, and we were not disappointed. We always take time to tour other campgrounds in the area no matter where we are staying. We went to 4 other campgrounds and I believe this is the best campground. The bathrooms are large and clean, the sites are well shaded and the staff are... More

From the first email to my last night there the Smoky Bear Campground owners/employees kept in contact with me. They gave me exact directions to get my oversized camper there with no issues. The campgrounds are extremely clean along with the bathroom facilities, pool and hot tub. There is also a nice camp store for some items you may need.... More

This is the First Ever RV plus Camping trip for our family and I'm so happy I found Smoky Bears to park. Perfect place for a first timers like us. Very helpful and understanding of our needs while booking. Due to traffic and slow driving (first time RVing), we reached the campgrounds only by 2am. Even at that hours, when... More

Lots of shade, very clean and well kept; very friendly and helpful staff; really enjoyed the pool and hot tub after long day of motorcycle riding! Easy to find location and central to many great locations in the ''smokies', but out of the congestion of the major destinations. Great BBQ nearby, and plenty of places to eat within a few... More
