Stayed the weekend and the Campground Rules WERE NOT enforced-Dogs were allowed to run free and were urinating in our campsite, campers were still loud and rowdy after the "quiet time" curfew, cars driving way too fast inside the park. I complained to the management and nothing was done. Most campers had NO campground etiquette and management did not care. This was not an enjoyable camping trip for us and will not be returning. My suggestion is that is you are looking for a quiet campground, stay away from Hot Springs Campground. - site reviewer

"Campgrounds - mud hole, no wifi, no view of river"
Great place for events. If you know everyone else, you won't mind being jammed into this mud hole. Getting off line here is a snap; no cell or wi-fi service. Dog-friendly campground. Very few rules. The staff was nice and did the best they could with what they had to offer.
Campsite was tiny, unmarked mud, with very little space, and no privacy between it and the next unit. So close that our neighbors had to move their truck so we could have a campfire inside the ring. Mud surface to park in; NO gravel. Roads full of pot holes. No landscaping.
Your "view" is the side of the next camper. No or direct access of the river from the RV sites. Had to go thru another person's site to find a long trail down to the river.To call the RV sites riverside is false advertising.
To say they have Wi-Fi is false advertising; maybe SOMEWHERE on the property it was working, but not in the campground. Staff admitted they'd "been having trouble". Our opinion is the owners (in Chicago!) need to invest more $ into more band width for a business. Either that, or advertise "spotty wi-fi".
Used to be one of the best chef's in NC at their store. Not so anymore :(.
This place has a corner on the market, and its obvious the way they keep it. - Major Quilter

What a poor value. First the campground is mostly dirt. Very little grass to be found. The roads in the campground are full of holes and are mostly first. When it rains so it did yesterday they turn to mud. At $40 per night a totally overpriced campground. It was hard to know where your campsite ended and another one started. - GLL

We camp here often and it just keeps going down hill. Since new management has come aboard they have dirty bathrooms. Mowing isn't done. No garbage pick up. Kids are running the office. The whole place just needs support and help. - AngieB

The camp ground is well established with trees but the buildings have not ben updated in years. Looks dated. Great for kids and has friendly campers who maintain their individual sites year round. - vols_24

We visited this campground in late April. The bathrooms were below par. We stayed for a week, and the staff did very little to maintain the bathrooms during the week. Showers were below average. Sites were mostly rock with very little shade, not very level. The staff people were nice though, and willing to help out when asked. - dschwark

This is a fairly remote campground located right at the base of the Appalachian Mountains 12 miles east of Greeneville, Tn. There are no pull through sites, however most of the sites are large, have shade, and a beautiful view. There is a fishing pond that is open to campers. Managers/owners are very friendly and helpful. This park is a "destination park"; it is too remote from the interstate for an overnight stay. The only negative is the narrow winding roads to get there and are truly a pain requiring slow speeds and caution on the curves. We have a 36 foot 5th wheel and it was very scary at times meeting traffic. There is cable available, but only in one section that is taken up by "long stay" campers. Overall a very good campground that deserves a 10 but we had to give an 8 for a lack of cable to all sites and the narrow winding roads. We would stay again. - sweetandlocker

this place has no class at all, but you do park right next to the river, and that says a lot. It also is only 6 miles to downtown Ashville, which says it has a good location. there is only one way in and one way out, so depending on which site you get you need to plan your escape. The location of the train tracks was however, extraordinary. I've never seen tracks that close to a river. Thankfully it was on the other side of the river, but the tracks must be ancient because the trains ran slower than 5 MPH, screeching all the way. loud, but only several times a day & night. The place was at capacity and the kids in the water were having a good time, so, it was a good location. - Gerry9

At $42.00 a night for full hook-ups, one would think this would be a well maintained, clean and properly staffed campground. Think again! The sites are so small and so close together and the road is so tight that I had to partially back the trailer into the site, disconnect my truck, reposition, reconnect and finish backing the trailer into the tiny spot. I was forced to park perpendicular to the trailer in order to get my one vehicle off the main road through the park. I found the site to be poorly maintained with a rotted picnic table, a fire pit made of landscape edge stones piled up and broken (with trash from previous campers left there), and seemingly dead tree limbs hanging over my new travel trailer. I stayed 2 of my 3 booked nights before leaving. My site was right on the river, which was nice, but directly across the river a train runs almost hourly, especially at night. It actually shook my travel trailer enough to wake me many times during the night. The campground apparently allows long term or permanent residents there as well. Beside my camper was a neighbor who had a much older camper that was badly in need of repair with a tarp on the roof. It looked terrible. I took a ride through the rest of the campground and noticed there were several seemingly long term guests with junk piled on and round their trailers. One camper at the end of the park had a jeep in front with at least two flat tires. On the 2nd day, it was explained that they would be bleaching the water system out and the water would not be safe to ingest. I asked if I could still shower and the owner said to "smell it first, then decide". I decided to leave early only to learn the sewer connection was clogged. So! No potable water, no working sewer connection, Wifi so slow it was unusable, trash and poorly maintained equipment and trailers all around. At $42 a night, save your money and go somewhere nice. - Travelforlife2015

A little hidden rustic gem right on the French Broad River with great proximity to Asheville. It was recommended to me by a friend on a F/B RV page and I'm so glad we took it. The campground sets right ON the river. It's a little tough getting in and out, narrow driveway but manageable for our 31' Class C rig. I wouldn't recommend it for anything larger. Sites were a little close but not too bad. They sat on cement so they were level. The ducks floating by are a plus, a train goes by occasionally across the river, kids beside us got a big kick out of it. Owner was a friendly guy. I called early in the day and he said he has one spot left and would save it for me which he did. Not the Taj Mahal by any means but a nice little basic campground, not your typical cookie cutter type you see in most places. We would stay here again if in the area. give it a try. - Banditoman60

Campground is set in a river valley farm and has riverfront sites. However, these sites are occupied by "permanent" campers with a waiting list and are angled back in sites. Most all other sites are parallel to the roadways. Sites are roomy enough with most having some shade. Only a few sites have 50A service. Campground roads are not paved but are easy to maneuver. Campground is about 10 miles off I-81 located about 20 miles from Morristown, Greenville and Newport. No nearby shopping. Swimming pool and picnic shelter are nice. Owners are friendly and helpful. We would stay again only for 1 to 3 nights, but not a destination stay of one week or more. - igor2brvn

We loved this park! Sad thing was its off exit 15 and no signs showing how to get there! its out in the middle of the smokey mountains.. We love it here.. wonderful place.. its so peaceful.. Only bad thing is if you have any cell phone service other then Verizon you won't have cell phone service.. I myself have AT&T and it said "no service". My hubby has Verizon and he had service.. Its about 9 miles off I-81 and is a great RV park... I will come again! so glad i have Verizon for broadband internet! - trvlnfmly99

We stayed here in our smallish TT in October. Hard to get to on a very windy and narrow dirt road, but if you take it slow it was easily doable. Wooded and pretty campground. One side of the campground is right on the water. The other side is close to the main road into Cataloochee. The first night we had tents all around us which was great. The next night we had a large 5th wheel on one side and another one behind us. Kind of lost the ambience for the second night. It is NOT generator free so that was a little bit of an issue as well. We like nature and quiet and even intermittent generator use is bothersome to us. The ranger was a lot of help and very friendly. There were hikes within easy walking distance from the campground and the elk were an easy bike ride away. Traffic could surprisingly get pretty tight in the afternoons when the elk are out and about. - Marciekaputnik

Reservations are required. The road to the campground includes a narrow, steep, winding and exposed section of a couple of miles of gravel road over a mountain. Large RVs and large trailers might find it difficult. There is no electricity, water, or sewer hookups at the sites. There are flush toilets and cold water sinks but no showers. The sites in the center of the loop have little privacy. The sites on the outside of the loop have somewhat more privacy. The campground is along side Cattaloochee Creek. - Teardrop11

This campground has become very popular in recent years due to the elk herd in the nearby fields. This campground does not have a dump station or shower house. It does have a small bathroom facility with flush toilets and a small sink to dump gray water. There are a few potable water spigots located throughout the campground. - Lance-a-Lot
