We stayed at the Yogi bear in Cosby TN (outside of G-burg). very nice place that backs to the Smoky`s, they have very nice creekside sites. it is a bit of a ride into town, but well worth it for the quietness. they have a very nice video on Youtube that showcases the campground.

Better to have a bad day of camping than a good day at work!

Hockeytownmom, we are also going to visit Pigeon Forge for the first time and have been trying to decide on a campground. We think we have chosen to go with Twin Mountain RV park. I have gotten some good reviews from others. We are going to stay here 4-5 days and will then find a quieter place closer to the national park for a few days.

This is the link for Twin Mountain.

I live in Tennessee and frequently visit the Smokies. If you wish to take your RV, I'd recommend staying in Townsend, Tennessee (billed as "the peaceful side of the Smokies"). There are several nice RV campgrounds there, but the best is Tremont Resort. It is the very last campground in Townsend before you enter the National Park. They have several sites that back up to the Little River and all those have covered decks. They have full hookups (water, sewer, 50 & 30 amp electric, cable TV, and wi-fi) and the people are friendly and easy to deal with. You will need reservations for riverside sites. There are a number of places up and down the drag, which runs parallel to the Little River, that rent tubes for tubing the river. Most of them rent for $9 for all day and have shuttles that will carry you back and forth. It is good, cheap fun. Townsend is only about a 15 mile (30 minute) drive through beautiful Wears Valley from Pigeon Forge and has the nearest improved campgrounds to Cades Cove. If you want to be where the action is, stay in Pigeon Forge. If you want to have a nice visit to the Smoky Mountains, stay in Townsend. We go two or three times a year and love it. Happy Camping.

We have stayed at two campgounds in the area and recommend both. The first is Adventure Bound ( and the second is Riveredge (Riveredge RV Park - Pigeon Forge camground and cabin rentals). Like someone posted earlier, if you stay at Riveredge STAY AWAY FROM THE CREEK but at Adventure Bound get as close to the creek as you can. Both are really nice and we would go back to either in a skinny minute. Adventure Bound is probably about 10 to 12 miles outside Gatlinburg which makes it really quite while Riveredge is between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge were Pigeon Forge really begins. More traffic on the main road and a little more noise but really nice none the less (and the Pigeon Forge trolley has a stop in the camp ground).
