Pigeon Forge Campgrounds

We are looking to tow to Pigeon Forge next summer from around STL. Is there any places better or worse than other to stay? Looking for any advice. This will be our first tow with our new to us 5th wheel.

Thanks

We are going to Twin Creek CG in Gatlinburg next month. It is our first time I can give you some information then.

We just came back from PF 2 weeks ago, and stayed at Up The Creek RV Park.

They have a page online...and yes, it *is* this nice;

Pigeon Forge RV- Up the Creek RV Camp, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Smoky Mountains

Low 30's ($) per night. We stayed there nine nights.

Awesome quiet place, small, 35 spaces, with a mountain creek coming down both sides of it. Some spaces have outdoor kitchens.

FULL hook ups but no public restrooms, showers, playgrounds etc. Kids played in the creeks, and had a great time. (other kids, not ours, they've all got kids of their own now)

It's about 5 miles off the main drag, out Wears Valley Road, turn right on Walden's Creek, left on Little Valley Rd. cross the bridge and you're there.

Quiet setting, no city lights or noise, lots of stars, tree frogs and crickets.

We'll be back there next year, for sure.

VERY dog friendly.

If I wasn't so lazy I'd have already posted *tons* of pics I took at that site to my album here.

AND, they have designated space to store your trailers. Had a few folks come in Friday for the Labor Day weekend hot rod/classic car show and brought their 'rods in on trailers behind their MHs.

Look up Townsend Tn. Its not far from PF and costs less to stay then some of the ones in PF or Gatlinburg. Check out CampTownsend and Tremont Campground. You can tube down the creek that runs from the park all the way through town.

We second "up the creek" RV park...very quiet yet accessible....no playground may disappoint some but the quiet atmosphere more than makes up for it! We had teenagers with us so they had the "pigeon forge playground" to enjoy! Have fun!

Bear Cove Village - RV's and camping information

Stayed here for 5 days this past June, 5 minutes from Dollywood and downtown Pigeon Forge. Has beautiful level paved pads and is nice and quiet.

I always tell people to check out River Plantation RV Park. It is a larger park and can accommodate any type of rig. They are about the most reasonable on the rates and are some very friendly folks running the place.

We stayed in Servile, Tn on the outskirts of PF. At the River Plantation RV Resort. Great place, roomy spaces. We were there for the car show. Will use this park again and again. Like Helmsey said very friendly folks.

We stayed in Sevierville outside the mayhem of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Those are fantastic places to day trip to, but a bear to drive downtown thru.
