Yes, if the tent isn’t considerably larger than the tent pad. Keep in mind that the tent pad is bordered by landscape timbers so you may be uncomfortable in a larger tent. If your tent is considerably larger, then you will need to reserve a tent friendly RV site.

You will need to book an RV site. If your tent sits on the ground, it will need to be a tent friendly RV site. If it’s a rooftop tent, then you can stay on any RV site.

When you book a site, you are primarily booking a site “type” such as Premium On-River or Standard Off-River. However, if you want a specific site number, then you will need to lock your site. If you do not lock the site number, then it is possible that the system will change your site number. It will not change the site type, nor will it give you a site that is too small for your RV. Our staff does not make these changes, it is an algorithm within our system that makes these changes. * If you are with a group of three or more RV sites, there is no charge for locking sites so that you can be next to each other, but you will need to let the staff know so we can add a group status to your reservations. For a list of site numbers and their type, click here.

We do not, but if you or a “buddy” have a Class A, B, or C and your hookups will reach, you are welcome to pull into your site as opposed to backing in. You’ll need to have longer hookups to reach the same pedestal.

We do not. We are surrounded by the Little Pigeon River and there are several areas around the campground that are well over 8 feet deep and perfect for swimming.

We do not. We sell or exchange 20 LB tanks. The closest place that refills propane is ACE Hardware and it’s about 5 miles from the campground on the way to Gatlinburg. Do keep in mind that ACE has a very small parking lot, so you will need to take your propane tanks there without your RV.

Yes. There is no charge for visitors, but please have them stop by the office to get a car tag and for instructions on where to park. Vehicles without a car tag are subject to towing at the owners’ expense.

For guests who have not arrived by the time the office closes, we will automatically leave your late check-in packet on the table in front of the check-in window at the office. Office hours vary throughout the season; please do not rely on Google or Facebook for accurate office hours. Quiet time starts at 10pm, so please try to arrive prior to that time to allow for set-up without disturbing your neighbors. If you arrive after quiet hours, please do a very minimal set-up until the following morning. TENT CAMPERS: No arrivals after 10pm. Please plan to arrive and be set up by 10pm.

Security personnel can be found in the game room between 10pm and 2am.

Yes, guests may fish around the campground. You will need a TN fishing license and an all-species license, also known as a trout stamp. Please do not walk through occupied sites to access the river. Children ages 12 and under do not need a license.

Thankfully, not often. Rarely do we have any issues with bears being a nuisance around the campground, mostly due in part to the staff keeping the dumpsters bear proof and our guests doing their part in keeping food and garbage out of their reach. To help keep bears (and other garbage loving critters) wild and away from your campsite, please observe the following:

  • Do not leave garbage outside at night. Dispose of all garbage every evening in the dumpsters and re-chain the lids.
  • Do not leave food unattended at your site. Store all food and drinks inside your RV. If you are tent camping, the best place is to store it in your car.
  • If you have any food or garbage inside your car, be sure to LOCK your doors. Bears have learned to open car doors. We hear numerous stories every year of bears entering cars, getting trapped when the door closes, and destroying the interior.

Almost. We close for about 6 weeks between January and February. We usually close down a few days after New Years and reopen the second week of February.
