Some sites are full hook up but most aren’t. Very nice park one of our favorite local getaways! We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

So quiet...wonderful to get away here. Bathrooms were great, clean campgrounds, park employees drove around often to check on things. Many miles of trails to walk, run or hike around. Outlook points to the lake that you can take advantage of. Beautiful views. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Tent Trailer.

We've camped here several times and it has never disappointed us. Love the trails, the campfires, the quiet. The only negative comment is they could mow the grass around the campground more often. My wife got a tick either on a hike or at the campsite. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We arrived for a one night stay without a reservation. The park ranger was great and gave us a nice site. Very clean state park with the pool and other recreational activities in a separate area which allowed for a quiet campsite. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We have stayed here twice. Both times were wonderful. The campground is small, but nice. Some of the sites have full hook ups. However, the larger sites (along the creek) do not have sewer hookups. Not a real big deal, but a deal none-the-less. That is about the ONLY detractor. The park itself is AMAZING! The are many things to do here, camp, see the sights, hike, run, bike, photograph, bird watch, horse ride, boating, swimming, etc., etc. There are nice things to do in the area, also. Plenty of good restaurants, good shopping, and other things to do. Pigeon Forge is only 40 minutes from here. If you have never been to any caverns, go to Forbidden Caverns. Wonderful tour and excellent sights! Be careful, the roads into here are still narrow. They are working on most of them (seem to have been working on the roads for over 4 years!), rerouting, widening, etc. Therefore, your GPS may go crazy. Just follow the signs. A restaurant called the Family Farm is about 20 minutes away. It is worth the drive for the excellent comfort food. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Camped in a Class B. Check in is at the Visitors Center. Park is clean and well maintained. Two clean bath houses each with 4 bath pods (showers, toilets & sinks). Small laundry (1 washer and dryer) 75 cents but no supplies. Each site has a BBQ grill. Sites are paved but you WILL NEED LEVELERS. I used a four stack and was no where near being level. Don't believe the "slight incline" it is more than slight. Most sites are scarce on shade and not very private. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Site 46 and 47 had mud daubers, can't say if any other sites had them or not. Once the park cleared out a little the female Ranger was very helpful in getting us moved to a more level site, which made our stay much more pleasant. All sites are back in. The class A's seemed to like the premium sites.

Free 200MB WiFi at sites but it's very slow. You can buy "coupons" for more data or for slowdowns. I don't know how that works because I didn't do it. I would go back but only if I could get a more level site. There are 2 covered picnic areas for the campers. I would have rated the park much higher if the sites had been more level. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Take a picnic lunch/dinner to the Smallman picnic area (will need to drive there). Good views of the lake. Lots of well maintained hiking trails but they are not marked very well.

I will confirm what others have said. When we were there the bathrooms were spacious and very clean. The laundry was only $.75 to wash and $.75 to dry. If you have not been there in awhile they have spent over $1 million in updates and it shows. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This campground was clean, and very well laid out with plenty of space between sites and convenient access to all things Panther Creek. It had fine water pressure, electrical, and a convenient dump station. And some of the views from the picnic / overlook area seemed too good to be true. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Might be cause it's very early in the season and I do not see any hosts here, but the shower/bath stalls are not clean at 3pm on a Sunday. Fairly new bath houses, maybe in the last couple years, will be nice when cleaned, still, they are usable and better then many. Easy site access although many sites are a bit to close together. About half are full hookup, the rest electric/water. New asphalt pads. I think all are backin. About half could handle a big trailer or class A, small ones are in the 25' range. As of this writing, access from the south off I-81 is kind of convoluted, looks like they are putting in a highway from 81 to here abouts. GPS had no issues. They have wifi, not using it as it looks to be prepaid at checkin. Verizon in campground but it's kind of weak, much better using a booster. Beautiful park, well used by the locals on the weekends. That's a positive statement. I'll be back. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was recently renovated and the grounds are not the best. Washout areas that are bare and rocky and rutted can be hazardous for those with m0bility issues. The sites are somewhat level and are blacktopped but be prepared with some leveling blocks as they will be needed in most of the sites. The park itself has many walking trails and programs and its a nice quiet park. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Campground loses points for closeness of sites. But It was very quiet, even though it was spring break and Easter. Great trails, beautiful scenery, Great Lake. Lots for kids to do. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground was wonderful. We called ahead and reserved a spot but upon arriving wanted to change sites due to closeness to bathhouse. The employee was wonderful moving us to a better spot. Lots of open space, easy to set up and very spacious. Because we use the bathhouse for showers and bathroom facilities, I was extremely pleased with their cleanliness. Not only that but they were private allowing to lock the door, this is wonderful especially with small children. Lots of hiking opportunities, pool, and shopping. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Tent Trailer.

This is a beautiful little park nestled in the Smoky Mountain region. The sites were small, but not on top of one another. They were shaded and fairly level. This was one of the quietest parks I have stayed at and every site was full. The people there were friendly and respectful. We camped at Panther Creek State Park in a Motorhome.
