Making a trip to gatlinburg tn

Looking at a trip from north east arkansas to gatlinburg Tn. 7 hrs 36 mins trip says 500 miles. I am looking at hotels and $125 a night and taking the minivan prolly $90 in gas or pulling the camper( 5th wheel xlr 305) and staying at camp sights, prolly $200 in fuel, $20 a night in camp sites. Looking to staying 4 nights w wife and kids and tubing, skiing and site seeing. I'll save $300 by raving. My question is any campgrounds that are open in February someone would recomend.looking at camping in the smokeys. Another question is I have never used water, toilets, and dumping in the winter. I have the weather package where the pipes have heaters. What would I need for water hookups, I am assuming heated hoses. Thanks in advance.

It can be a real crapshoot in Feb...if it dips down real cold then all bets are off. I am sure some of the locals from right around there will weigh in.

I can recommend Anchor Down RV resort. It is on the pricey side though, but extremely nice. Not sure if they are open in February, but you can check their website.

Anchor Down is not near Gatlinburg. At least 45 minutes away. As nice as it looks, to bad it isn't near anything at all.

Sorry, I guess the driving doesn't bother me much as I live in Atlanta and it takes 45 minutes to get to the grocery.

We have stayed at Riverside RV park in Severville and enjoyed it. It is right on the river and close to everything. I would call before going to be sure they will be open and make reservations. Gatlinburg is small and has very limited rv space. Severville is 10 minutes away.

I live in Sevier County, and Mid February this year was the big ice/snow storm this way. Your trip that time of year would best be accomplished by driving the vehicle and staying in a motel/resort, check out the Wilderness in Sevierville, an indoor waterpark, so doesn't matter how bad the weather gets - once you're there of course. Safe Travels.
