This campground was wonderful! There were always tons of things to do for the kids and it was so peaceful for us. It was the quietest campground I have ever been to. The kids never wanted to leave to sight see because of the activities for them. They have a pool with a great kiddie pool for our 18 mth old. They have ping pong, basketball, mini gold, a playground, movies, a day camp for elementary age children, and a stream for the kids to play in. Everything was very clean and well kept. The owners were wonderful. I was surprised at how friendly they are and encouraged by their commitment to God. The only drawback to the campground is the sites are quite small. I was shocked at how small they are. But in the end it didn't matter. We didn't need a lot of space since the kids were kept busy with other things. I would definitely stay here again.

This is our favorite campground!! The park setting could not be anymore perfect. Your site backs up to a rushing stream that the sound is so relaxing. It is nestled in a wooded area so most sites have shade. Even in the very hottest part of summer, it is very comfortable. The bathhouses have always been immaculate as well as the campground. They have activities, mini golf, a swimming pool even some cabins. The new owners are absolutely wonderful. They help you to get in your site as well as being very personable and friendly. We travel there from Kentucky and it is actually easier to get to than the campgrounds in Pigeon Forge. You come in from interstate 40 through a residential area for about 12 miles. It is on the main road and only about 15 minutes from Gatlinburg. If you are traveling to this area, this is the best campground there! I give them an A++++++

We stayed here with 5 other families. I cannot say enough good things about the campground and its owners. We were backed up to a RUSHING creek which was so relaxing. Stone fire pit was near the bank of the creek. Plenty of planned activities for kids. Campground was spotless at all times. Owners escort you and help you get in your site. New owners took over May, 2006 and they are doing a super job. It is a great family friendly campground

We just got back from a 4 night stay at the Jellystone Gatlinburg. It was great! We were in site #47 backed up to a stream. The sound of the water flowing over the rocks was very relaxing. The fire rings are at the back of the site, so you are sitting around the fire by the edge of the stream. It was a wonderful setting. Our site was right across from the laundry and a set of showers. The new owners just recently bought it and are doing a great job! Our trash was picked up at our campsite each morning. They always had nice brush piles to use to start fires. Each night, Yogi is out to greet the kids followed by a movie in the pavilion. They are definitely there to serve their campground guests, as well as the Lord. It is a good family oriented Christian environment. We felt extremely safe and relaxed there. It was a little bit of a drive into downtown Gatlinburg, but that was not a big deal to us. They had a small, but very nice mini-golf course that we enjoyed a couple times. The pool area was nice. We had a great time hiking the trails around the campground. The owners gave us directions for a by-pass around Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg to get to the campground and that turned out to be a big time saver not having to go through the main parkway to get to the campground. I loved the drive through some of the local area. There was a Wal-Mart and Lowe's on the exit as well. If you are planning a trip to the Gatlinburg area we would definitely recommend this campground.
