Glamping KY or TN

We have a 24 ft class c camper and love basic state park camping in warm weather. But since our camper is winterized- I am spoiled after going to an awesome campgrounds in smoky Mountains that was an upscale campsite with heated bathrooms and showers with wifi that was so enjoyable in cooler weather.
Does anybody have names of campgrounds(or glamping grounds) within a 3 to 4 hour drive from Cincinnati Ohio
Thanks

I hear a lot of good things about Anchor Down RV Resort in Dandridge, TN. It's a fairly new campground that gets great reviews. We haven't been there yet but have plans to make reservations soon. It is also close to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and Dollywood.

Anchor Down is one of our favorites! Take a premium site with an outdoor fireplace and enjoy!

$%&^

Just looked for sites in May next year and it's booked solid for a week long stay. PLace looks VERY NICE and they are very proud of it too $$$. Makes me want to find a piece of property and build a glamping campground in NC on a lake somewhere, lol. All these campers being sold, it's getting hard to find a spot in a really nice place unless you plan it out as soon as reservations open up.

Glamping

Yes I heard of Anchor Downs too but it is almost impossible to get a camp reservation there.
We also had a hard time finding an RV storage. Had to ask everyday until somebody left.
I guess camping must be a hot trend.
Thanks everybody.

Anchor Down

If you want Glamping in the Dollywood / Gatlinburg area, Anchor Down is the place to stay.

They are, however, closed in December, January, and February.

The Signature sites with the custom fireplaces and awesome views are well worth the $69, a definite bargain when compared to some of the RV parks in California that we have stayed at that have higher rates without near the amenities.

We didn't have any issues getting reservations there last year and got to pick our site when we reserved, but we did plan well in advance.

Gorgeous park, extremely nice staff, beautiful area. Well worth a visit.

Sportsdad12. We are in Ohio too. Stay a little closer to home and visit Cross Creek Rv and campground by Alum Creek State Park north of Columbus. Very friendly and pretty campground. And their festival of lights at Christ.as is wonderful. Whispering Hills in Georgetown Ky is nice. You will like their nice bathrooms too and they are close to the bourbon trail. We hope to see you around sometime!

I too stayed at Anchor Down this fall, we made our reservations in the early spring for OCT. I paid $59.00 a night for my spot up on the hill, did not have the fireplace but did have a wonderful view of the lake and campground.

If you think that $69.00 a night is high try staying at a KOA Resort. We spent 5 nights at the KOA Resort in Nashville after leaving ANCHOR DOWN. We spent around $82.00 night for a pull through site with hook-ups, I believe Saturday night was $89.00 a night.

The KOA site was smaller and was not paved, just a gravel site. With a lot of road noise from the interstate.

I would take and pay the Anchor Down cost anytime for a will maintain campground.
