We've camped here on and off for the last six years. Currently we have been here for six weeks and love it!
The views of the mountains are unparalleled and everyone is friendly and easy to get along with, which includes all the staff.
Yes, there is a rooster here. I've named him Rocky. He walks around the campground and brings great character to this place. In six weeks I've never heard him crow at 3 am. Mornings and early evenings yes, but not the middle of the night. That's when he sleeps.
This ain't Disney World. If you want an antiseptic visit with nothing to disturb you, this place isn't for you. It's not a concrete jungle. It's the country! If you want to get away and enjoy the quiet of the countryside with the birds, etc., then you'll love it here.
I'd much rather hear the rooster, the geese and other birds than the sirens we used to hear in town. Residents and visitors here are great about observing quiet hours and respecting each other's space.
The sites are good sized, the bathroom and laundry room are cleaner than any I've seen. The entire campsite is well maintained and the owners and camp hosts are always available in case of a question or a problem. We camped at Whispering River Resort (formerly Misty River Cabins & RV Resort) in a Motorhome.
Whispering River is close to Townsend and Maryville with all their amenities. The Great Smoky Mountain National Park is about 30 minutes away. Knoxville is about 45 minutes away, so there is something here for everyone.
