Nice park. Easy to navigate, level sites, clean, and quiet. Sites are long but narrow pull thrus or wider back ins. Nice pool. Great proximity to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and Great Smoky Mountain NP, yet you are out of the heavy traffic zone. We camped at Riverside Campground & Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Pros: The roads are wide and easy to navigate. Located about 4.5 miles from I-40. Cons: The sites and interior roads are large gravel which make a lot of noise as trucks, cars, and RVs pull in and out. Many of the sites are quite far from the bathhouse(s). In our case, we were 0.25 miles one way. Sites are very close together such that you are very close to your neighbor's septic. Most picnic tables are severely warped and in need of repair / replacement. This is an extremely busy area and it is difficult to get anywhere without waiting a very long time at lights. We will not come here again. We camped at Riverside Campground & Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice park. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a pull thru (205) and the utilities were within easy reach. The sites are pretty close and I think we would only have a couple feet between our awning and the slides on the camper next door. They have a nice fenced dog play area. We camped at Riverside Campground & Resort in a Travel Trailer.

There are many things to do in the area. The traffic was comparable to a major city during rush hour. It took us about 10 minutes to get thru two traffic lights about 250' apart.

This is one of the nicest campgrounds we have ever stayed in! It is close to Sevierville & Pigeon Forge, but it is far enough away to be quiet and somewhat out of the congestion. The grounds are beautifully kept. The sites are gravel with concrete pads. Ours had shade as do most in the front section. The sites are all pretty close together, but that doesn't bother us. In fact, we enjoyed meeting and visiting with our neighbors! There is a section on one side that has their seasonal residents. The back section is huge with lots more pull-throughs. The sites on the river are back-ins. The office staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The bathrooms are immaculate! We camped at Riverside Campground & Resort in a Motorhome.

Excellent RV park. They have lots of spaces and an entire section of pull through's that are very long. Campground was very easy to navigate with our big rig motorhome. The owners are very nice, very christian and even have a Sunday worship. They kept the park very clean. There was always someone cleaning, mowing or regrading the roads. The roads are gravel but easy to use. This park is closer to I40 and not in the crazy Pigeon Forge area. We found is easy to drive down when we wanted. Its less noisy and much quieter than the parks closer to the Smokey Mountains National Park. We went into the National Park several times. Great bear sightings in Cades Cove. Highly recommend a drive through that area. We will stay here again and the price is very competitive for the area. Hopefully they will keep it this way or eventually it would make sense to stay closer to Pigeon Forge. We camped at Riverside Campground & Resort in a Motorhome.

We were initially assigned a site that was barely long enough for our 43' 5th wheel. When I checked in, the nice lady noticed that, and gave us the coveted site 196, which is at the end of a row of back in sites next to the river, with plenty of length to accommodate our trailer and our F350 dually. We were a bit close to our neighbors, which seemed to be standard for most of the RV campgrounds in Sevierville. It wasn't much of an issue for us though, since they faced our street side, where we don't have many windows. The only thing that let the experience down is the wifi. The signal was generally good, but when we first got there and the campground was pretty full, the wifi was painfully sloooooow. Also, there was no dumpster nearby, which required a drive to dump trash, and there was no nearby bathhouse/shelter in our area of the campground . Other than those small items, it was a very enjoyable stay. We camped at Riverside Campground & Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Large, well maintained park with a mix of 30 and 50 amp FHU back in and pull through sites with cable. There are also 35 mobile homes and 24 cabin rentals. Sites are gravel, but very close together with a strip of grass between campsites. Interior roads are gravel, wide and easy to navigate. We stayed in site 46, a level, pull through site with concrete patio and very small picnic table. Laundry area had 4 washers and 4 dryers. Bathroom/shower area was newer and clean, and consisted of 3 toilets and 3 showers per gender. Office has a few rv items and sells ice, sodas and ice cream. The park has nice amenities such as a pool (open seasonally), dog park, basketball court, playground, small arcade for the kids and propane sold onsite. They also have a large pavilion where they have non-denominational service on Sundays. Utilities worked well and Verizon service was very good. You can fish Little Pigeon River that runs through the campground, but a fishing license is required. Staff were nice and friendly. Park is about 4 miles from the interstate. This was our second stay here, and is a convenient stopover for us when traveling through the area. We camped at Riverside Campground & Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Fantastic campground. Most all types of campers would fit in here and be able to find something to do. The spaces are long and wide in the section we are staying in, and we also have enough room to park our truck in our site. They now have a dog park for your furry friends as well. If you like a campground in the shade, they go you covered, and if you like wide open spaces without the trees they got you covered on that too. I highly recommend this campground.

Upon entering Riverside park there is not a lot of curb appeal at least not in November. There is a slightly steepish, turning entrance and you pull up in front of a small building. We had reserved ahead, and the check-in was quick and functional. They give you a map and off you go to your site. There are back-in sites along the river but they are rather short. We witnessed a long 5th wheel trying to get into one of these sites, and he used several opposite (luckily empty) sites to back in. And his back end was almost over the river. A small motorhome could pull in but would have to run utilities underneath. Our pull-thru site was narrow and flanked by trees so we had to jockey a bit to get situated. It would have been a challenge with the tow hooked up. The site left little room for our tow vehicle even with parking it sideways. If you want an overnight and don't want to unhook specify a pull-thru without trees. The sites are all gravel and pretty level. There is no privacy just a little grass space between sites with a picnic table. It was raining when we arrived and there was lots of standing water in most sites and the interior roads. It was not crowded when we we here and it was quiet. Internet works pretty good although it slows down here and there. Directv would not lock in due to trees in our site but would have in the pull-thrus without trees. They do have cable. Verizon was strong with 4g - 3 bars. We found it to be pricey, even off season, for what you get. Although they advertise that the park is strictly a nightly vacation park there are permanent double-wides in the middle of the park. And yes, the park is located near Gatlinburg but the traffic to get there is horrendous. We attempted to go into Gatlinburg which would have taken 1 ½ hours to go 18 miles! We passed on that! BTW if you like to consume adult beverages come fully stocked - there are only a couple of liquor stores in the area. We camped at Riverside Campground & Resort in a Motorhome.

This was a very nice RV Park. Though we were only there for an overnight traveling through to return home, we were very pleased with what this park offered and will definitely be back. At another time when we can enjoy all that this area has to offer and the weather is not so cold, I'm sure that we will stay for awhile. The staff were very friendly and courteous, both when calling for a space and at check in. Our site was easy to get into and out of, was on an end cap with no one next to us, and was level. WIFI worked well. Actually, given the time of the year and the weather, there were only a few other RV's. A river runs beside the campground and some of the cabins with decks were right over the river. The campground has all the amenities needed. We camped at Riverside Campground & Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice place to stay while exploring the Gatlinburg/Smoky Mountains NP area. The park was clean, the staff was friendly and professional, and sites were level. There are pull through sites, but we selected a back-in site that gave us a nice backyard on the river. The sites are a bit close, but that's to be expected in a "resort" area, and they weren't too close to be uncomfortable. The roads in the park are very wide and easy to maneuver for any size rig. They are gravel and are well maintained. We liked that this park is close to I40, so you don't have to drive through all of the high-traffic tourist areas to get there. And, you're not that far from Pigeon Forge and the National Park to enjoy those areas. It was nice to be in a more quiet area when running to the store or to get gas. Verizon cell phone service was good. We used the cable somewhat, it had limited channels. You should have good satellite service given the park layout. Hookups were in great shape and within easy reach of the Motorhome. We enjoyed our stay, the view of the river, and would definately return the next time we visit this area.

There is so much to do in the area it can be overwhelming. If going to the National Park, be sure to use the bypass around Gatlinburg. We had a great meal at a new place called The Local Goat. Recommend the Roaring Fork Motor Tour in the National Park, not as used as Cade's Cove.

Nice, large, campground. Well laid out and super easy for big rigs. Large pull thrus are available. Utilities are solid although we did not try the cable as we used our satellite. Wifi is surprisingly good for a packed house on Saturday night. Seems to be lots to do for families and it is a short,( but not fast) drive to Pigeon Forge and all the touristy stuff.
