Overall Rating:

The park is very clean, sites are fairly level (all gravel fill since they removed all of the trees), good wifi, ATT service and satellite reception. The voltage only registered 110 rather than 115 but there wasn't a problem and the water pressure is very good. The creekside sites are narrow but not a problem getting into them. There are only about 30 overnight sites all of the rest are permanent structures, the park indicates it has 92 sites. The pool is very small and no chairs or table around it. Everyone is very pleasant. The sites that back up to the creek also backs up to the busy highway behind it so there is a lot of road noise and trucks using their 'jake' brakes while going down the hill. We would camp here again if in the area but wouldn't stay long term. We camped at Fort Tatham RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a small campground that was recently purchased by Sun Communities. There are several permanents on two sides of the park with the transients bunched together by the entrance. The staff was very friendly and the facilities were all nice and clean. Good wifi and minimum ATT. We stayed here 4 nights. We camped at Fort Tatham RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The RV gravel parking sites are new this year. The pull thrus slant, need levelers. There is all underground utilities/wifi and room for larger rigs. Tho we kind of miss a shade tree or two. The pond w/ fountain and a creek is a plus. Gr8 to stay here for visiting that smokie mt. area. Don't forget to stop at the road side rock store up the road heading toward Franklin and Uncle Bills flea Mkt and one across from it heading toward Cherokee. Back at the camp..... The campground is surrounded on the outer sides with nicely built/kept personally owned cottages. New Tent sites will be constructed There are games to borrow from the Camp office , Very clean restrooms. Laundry room They have a big screen tv room for movie get togethers. Kids will love the fast grassy space & playground We were there just a little bit early ,the tiny pool was not up and running yet. Looking forward to them building a new, bigger, safer , user friendly pool. Can't be soon enuf. As for the park hosts they are very knowledgeable with campground experience and they don't come any nicer! We felt very safe here. We camped at Fort Tatham RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

This is a great campground. Some of the overnight/weekly/Monthly sites are close and there is some road noise from 441 which runs behind the creek, but the friendliness of the staff and other residents make up for these irritants. The park has a lot of owner residents who have enclosed rv's to make permanent cabins. These owner residents welcome the overnight guest so you don't feel like you are intruding on them. There are activities monthly where all are invited. We enjoyed a Chili cook-off in Oct along with several group bon-fires in the common area. The park has a catch and release pond, a playground which has a basketball and a small swimming pool. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We will return. We camped at Fort Tatham RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Dillsboro and Sylva are close for sightseeing and shopping. The fudge factory in Dillsboro is a must. Barber's Apple Orchard in Waynesville has the best apple cakes and apple turnovers to die for. We visit this area often and make special efforts to go to Barber's. (only open Aug 1 - Dec 24).

Paved and gravel roads, gravel spots. We needed to use our leveling blocks to help level our RV, but I have seen worse spots. Very friendly managers and residents. The park recently became a Care Free park and a lot of improvements are going on. There is a nice clean laundry facility available. There are a lot of activities going on and the full time residences welcomed us with open arms to join in on the daily trips, morning exercise, ice cream socials, and nightly camp fires. We will most certainly come back. We camped at Fort Tatham RV Resort in a Motorhome.
