The wife and I had a very good experience with this campground. It is very organized and clean. The owners are very nice and if you need something they will try to provide it.
If you are going to the Smoky Mountain's National park this is the place to stay.
Hope to go back in the next couple years.

I found the park to be excellent. Blacktop roads, concrete pads, easy in and out access, very clean, owners are very friendly. The only negative is that is a little far away from all the Gatlinburg / Pigeon Forge activities. Still one of the nicest parks I have ever been in.

We made our third trip here last week with our grand daughter. We absolutely LOVE Smoky Bear Campground. The staff is excellent, the grounds and facilities immaculate and best of all it is out of town, quiet and peaceful. After a long day in bustling Gatlinburg it is an oasis of relaxation.

Although we are not hikers, we have seen many others getting advise from the staff on where to go in the Smokys Nat'l Park. They are really knowledgeable about the area and the best places to go and see.

We highly recommend Smoky Bear Campground to anyone visiting the area.
