A small RV park located behind the motel of the same name at 4077 Soco Road (US 19). Sites are small but each site has a concrete pad and each also has full hookups including sewer for only $20 total including tax. We had a great stay and although the park is a little dated it is clean and well kept. Most campers are seasonal. The park is family owned and operated. The family lives next to the park and has an active role in daily operations. Very friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This is a convenient RV park for self contained units. There are no restrooms or showers and the Wi-Fi works well at the laundry/pavilion but is weak or non working at sites. All sites are level with crushed rock pads and grass and a small tree between sites. Creek front sites are all permanent residents. We are spending a month here for $425 in a fifth wheel enjoying the fall foliage and many craft festivals. We will camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very friendly & helpful staff with interesting store. Great central location in Maggie Valley--walk almost anywhere for local dining/retail, but street is extremely wide & busy--kids & pets beware. Campground is about 50% seasonal/full-timers & sites are fairly small but level. Will probably return--love the area & the $24 includes all taxes, etc. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It was a nightmare! We arrived to find the smallest campsite we ever saw. We couldn't even get in to it. The neighbor on one side had his awning out which came over on us at least 3 feet. On the other side there was a camper with about three big tents that had eased onto us a couple of feet. Even if we made them move and the guy took down his awning, it would have been tight. We did not stay here. We went down the road and found a beautiful, shady place that was 3 times the size. Anyone we talked to knew of that park's reputation. We were told they changed their name from Jonathon's Hideaway to Somers Cream. There are many other options for Maggie Valley. Choose Wisely. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Sites were very small. Need gravel at sites only bare dirt/mud. Bad road noise constantly from Hwy. 279 Nice stream. Shady locations, Decrepit permanent residence travel trailers, and weird people in them. Their are a lot better sites within 3 miles. Would rather stay home than go back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We booked this place sight-unseen. When we pulled in, it was much smaller than I expected. We checked in and proceeded back to our site, which was directly on Jonathon Creek--beautiful! The entire campground is shaded, so it was wonderful in July. All the sites had fire rings and a picnic table; although, they were all tight. Thankfully, there was an empty site next to us. We were directly in front of the bath house. We used it--the women's and handicap were clean and nice. The men's looked like they forgot to finish it when the built the building--unfinished, bare studs, crowded stalls. And nasty! So, for the rest of the time, I used the handicap bathroom. There was 90% seasonal; in fact, I don't think anyone else checked in the three days we were there. Loved the shade and creek, love the area. We would stay here again. The price was right! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
The campground is certainly dated and needs a ton of work. I did not see any sites that were not needing new gravel. The sites have not been updated for several years. We found rusty screws at multiple sites that appeared to be the same as used on the picnic tables. I requested and moved from our first site because of a ditch that had been dug to repair a water line and not properly filled back in. This hazard was right out our door, and I could just see the wife tripping and falling. The campground sites are short in length. Our rig is 37.5' long and needed a little play to get positioned well on the site. Some of the other units we were camping with were even worse. There is no camp store. The advertised breakfast cafe was not open, no propane, no ice or anything else available. While clean, the showers and restrooms were certainly dated and needing work. The campground is right off a major road, and there is a lot of road noise all night long. Cable worked well, internet connection worked well, but that was about all. The water pressure was at best around 20# according to my gauge. This would not be a place I would want to stay for many nights and only as a overnight if nothing else was available. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate reflects Passport America discount. We stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed our stay. The Management/Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The woman who checked us in felt that we might have trouble with the site assigned to us so she had us drive around and look at some alternates. We ended up selecting a different site. The roads are gravel and drain well (we had 1 day of rain). Community fire pits are convenient to the 50 amp sites. The laundry was very clean and well-maintained. Nice Clubhouse, too. Several of the amenities were unavailable. We had to go get a picnic table from where they were being cleaned/re-stained. We felt there should have been more of an off-season price, but they were the only RV Park offering PA discount in October and for more than one day. Overall a nice park. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed at Pride RV Resort under our Coast to Coast reciprocal agreement under our membership with our home park. The first time we stayed here was in 2000. We noticed several amenity upgrades since that first visit. There were nice level gravel sites, 3 point full hook-ups as well as creek side and mid-park pull throughs. There is located in the park a church building with resident pastoral family, laundry facilities, club house, pavilion, and a seasonal cafe and pool area. The park overall is a very nice place with many amenities; however, we did not enjoy our visit this time. We were charged $94.50 over and above our advanced payment with our Coast to Coast points and when we questioned the charges telling them we didn't need a 50 AMP site nor did we need a pull through creekside we were told it was a mandatory charge. Be advised that Pride Resort will apply these charges to Coast to Coast members. Upon calling Coast to Coast member services, it was agreed that the charges were exorbitant and the management was going to be contacted. Furthermore, be advised when we disputed the charges the manager became angry and was extremely disrespectful. I understand this isn't the kind of review that is welcomed but indeed it is a fact and fellow campers and potential guests at Pride Resort need to be made aware of these extra mandatory charges in addition to your Coast to Coast point charges and the angry display of management to a guest is inexcusable. I recommend as per the Coast to Coast member services representative that you contact the RV Park in advance and ask what the extra charges are going to be before you make your reservation. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We tried to stay here but were unable. First, the park did not answer our email. We drive an rv with auxiliary trailer for our motorcycle. The park would not let us keep our rig together on our site, even though it fit easily on a pull-through site. There fore, we decided to leave. They insisted that they were "motorcycle friendly" but we do not consider this to be the case, considering this policy. We did notice that the sites were very narrow, and jam-packed together. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one nice RV resort. Located next to a beautiful flowing creek, so relaxing. Lots of entertainment and things to do for all ages. Been here several times and plan on future visits. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground. Sites were a tad close together for my taste but overall the park was filed with amenities, clean, and in a good location. And, you can't beat the PPA discount. We stayed for 3 nights and would have stayed a few more, but they didn't have room. Will certainly stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a nice park. We checked in under one of our memberships at $10.00 a night for a weeks stay. By the time they tacked on cable, 50 amp, and G-row it came to $164.50 ($23.50 a day) for the week. That still is not a bad price, but when you expect $70.00 and it jumps that high, its a shock to the purse. Will inform my membership office that they need to warn of the extra charges. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I would have rated higher but the highway is right next to it, and the water kind of has a hose taste. The staff was great and our site was level and shaded. There is a lot for the kids to do and it is set at the base of the Smokey's an exit away from the parkway. I would return if in the area again! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here one week, parked in water front site (G area). The park is very nice with many amenities including a dance hall and Sunday morning non-denominational services. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Pool and spa facility was unavailable as it was the beginning of their season. But the area looked very inviting. Sites are gravel and grass, some with concrete pads. Saw mill across Johnathan Creek fires up at 7:00 AM. So, if you're a light sleeper, don't pick a water front site. Pets are limited to dogs under 30 pounds. Overall, a very nice stay with easy access to the Smoky Mtn Nat'l Park, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Asheville (Biltmore). We camped here in a Motorhome.
When we made reservations they did not tell us that they had no hot water for the showers and laundry. We assume it was turned off for winter months but no one could give us an answer. Also, we were surprised when they told us we had to pay an extra $3 per day because we had 50amp. This was not on their website and they did not tell me when we made reservations. Across the stream is a lumber company and the smell of this and manure was unbearable at times. We would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here two weeks using our AOR membership. Hated to leave. Great park and very friendly people. A lot of seasonals that live a few hours away and come here for the summer. Since the season was winding down, a lot of the activities were over except for bingo and "holey ball?". Beautiful laundry in the club house so you could sit in comfort while doing that wretched job. I would give this park a 10 except for...We were charged $13/day for AOR (usually $9) and $3.50 for "Amenities/cable TV". I asked why the extra AOR fee and was told it was because we were on the G row (creekside). We didn't ask for that row but it was pull through and very nice. We have satellite TV and it would work on that row so we didn't need the cable TV but had to pay for it regardless. AND if you didn't use the water for awhile, you need to run it a few minutes because it is brown and needs to be cleared out. Asked a few seasonals about it and they said that it is only that way on the G row. Talked to the manager and he said "they" were doing some work down the road and hit a water line so just "run it for a few minutes". I used to work for a water company and I know that if a water line is compromised and fixed, there can be muddy water for a couple of days, not 2 weeks. I think they have a problem on G row. Maybe the extra fee for that row is so they can afford to fix it someday?? All in all, a wonderful place to stay AND a great area with the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway and just awesome, beautiful, Jeep and motorcycle roads. Can't wait until we can make it back someday. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a really neat park... miniature golf course, pavilion with square dancing and lots of fishing spots. There were geese that bedded down right on the shore of the pond near our space each night. There were a whole lot of full-timers there, and it was a very friendly community. The spaces were very close together, and there was no shade in the row we were in, but the folks on either side of us couldn't have been friendlier, so we didn't mind. The reason I rated this a 7 is because it's right off of the main highway and the truck traffic is so loud it kept us up at night. We stayed here for 5 nights - and had planned to stay 7, but just couldn't stand the traffic at night. The office staff was not overly friendly about it, but did give us a refund for the nights we had paid for, but didn't stay for. If you're a heavy sleeper, this is a wonderful place to stay. We're used to the quiet of the country, so parks that have a lot of road noise aren't so enjoyable for us. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Check in was quick and easy. Our original site had no water available due to a break somewhere. So, we were upgraded to a stream side site without extra charge to us. The only negative we found to this park was the large number of permanent residents whose sites were junky and very unattractive. Some had two or three tents that were open over onto the next site. It was not even pleasant to walk past those. We do not think we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very very clean and neat. Stayed at site G-9 "stream site" across the road. Pool, laundry, clubhouse and bath/showers etc. were spotless. Great activities for all. Putt putt was the best we have ever seen from west coast to east coast. I was surprised we were not charged extra to use any of the activities like the other "campground." I don't like to be nickled and dimed for everything. We had a lot of fun. Another plus is you are in the middle of Waynesville and Maggie Valley. OK, the mill across the creek does have a smell. Most of the time you will smell a mild cedar/pine/mulch smell. On our 4th and last night, we did smell the manure smell; it was very thick and lasted for approximately 45 min. Do not pass this one up because of this. This campground has been the best one for all of us so far. Only reason for not giving a 10 is that the sites on "G creek front", are not really creek sites since the creek is across the road and the sites are not level. Everyone had to block and jack the front off the ground approximately 6-7 inches. This might be normal for the water shed. We will absolutely be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate for RPI. The Park is well maintained and neat. The clubhouse and pavilion, office and laundry/restrooms/showers are all immaculate. Our only contact with the staff was at check-in and they were friendly and helpful. We noticed a slight odor (compost maybe??) but the noise others suggested was not evident during our stay. There is a mill across the creek and a topsoil business across the highway but not offensive. The interior roads are all gravel and sites are crushed rock, drive through with full hookups. The site I was assigned (D-8) required two leveling blocks on the left side, not really unusual in a lot of parks. The issue which lowers the score is the lake which develops at sites D-7, D-8 & D-9 in heavy rain storms. The water does drain eventually but is really a mess when you step out of the RV into a puddle 3-4 inches deep during or following heavy rains. Other sites did not have this problem. There are lots of activities here, for family or specific age groups. This park hosts square dance and line dance classes and also books entertainment groups. The group which entertained during our stay was a vocal quartet and three piece band. We thoroughly enjoyed our stop here and would return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Clean park and nice location except for two things: 1.Directly across the creek is a mulch grinding operation that ran all day long. Very Noisy! 2. Smell from manure / compost, not sure where from but you are surrounded by farming. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found the staff to be friendly although we did not come into contact with them after check-in. The sites were adequate enough and the campground was very quiet. The WiFi did not work in that we were too far away from the office. The other disturbing thing was the logging operations that were going on across the creek: noisy all day long. Although they did not honor any discounts, if we were to return to Maggie Valley, we would consider this campground again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The lot sizes are extremely well-spaced and the campground is very neat. Our site was along the creek but within site of the pool and laundry facilities. The pool water was sparkling clean and heated which made evening swims very comfortable. The laundry facilities were well-maintained and clean. The employees are very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed our stay there immensely! We will definitely stay there again! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great park, the staff was helpful and friendly. Very quiet with mostly older couples like us, a plus to me. It rained 3 times and roads had some water but not a problem. They have some type of square dancing every night. I would give them a 10, but Wi-Fi would not reach our campsite but club house was nice. The rate is the C2C rate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here in a 40' 4-slide motorhome using our AOR membership. The resort is very nice, well maintained and has friendly/helpful personnel. We had 50 amp and table. We were in site G10 looking at the stream. The park is quiet and within distance of The Great Smokey Mountain National Park and Ashville: Biltmore Estate. We had to use blocks under the front jacks to get enough lift to level out our motorhome. Otherwise, the stay was great. We would return again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here for 4 nights with this being our second time this year and will be back again as we love this park. It has all the amenities you could want. We have had sites facing the stream both times and enjoyed them. The staff is friendly and efficient. Entertainment was good also. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here for two nights in our forty-foot motorhome after having our reservations totally botched at another campground next door. Pride Resort is extremely nice: large sites, large interior roads, very well maintained and very well managed. Everything about this location is extremely positive except that some of the sites are not level. We had to move from one pull-through to another and still our motorhome had great difficulty leveling. Otherwise, we would have rated Pride as a "ten". We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here under AOR which is $9 a night and had to pay $3.50 for cable TV even though we have a sat. dish. Still the best buy in the area (place next door is $39 a night). Very friendly staff - lot's of activities and great breakfast buffet in the restaurant. Near enough to town for shopping. Very quiet area and parked next to the stream made it nice. I would recommend for small children as a lot of things for them here also. Sign at checkin list dog breeds (pitbull, etc.) not allowed and I only saw a few small ones around. I guess they really enforce that rule. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a private resort campground. We stayed a week in a motorhome. We have a nice stream side pull site with a gravel pad and full hookups. The park was neat and clean and everything was well maintained. The Wifi is transmitted from one location at the clubhouse. We were too far away to connect. Nice park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A clean pleasant park. We enjoyed the stay and would return. It is close to so many areas and activities in Western North Carolina. Our rate was $8 because we are AOR members. Our two small (12 lbs) dogs were not an issue. (800) 926-8191 We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here for one night. The campground is very nice and clean with excellent showers, pool and spa. They have a cafe' that serves breakfast at a reduced rate for guests. Were asked not to return because our dog was over 30 pounds. I could understand, if you have an aggressive or barking dog. My dog is a professionally trained hound dog and is well behaved. She didn't bark and was only out twice to go to the bathroom (I did pick up after her) and walk up the street and back once. Will not return. Taking pets along is the main reason why I camp. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We camped at a creekside site. The park was very well-kept with lots of amenities that kept our kids entertained. Some seniors who stay in the campground also work there. They are very friendly and take great pride in their campground. The cafe has a wonderful breakfast offered to campers at a discount. The pool is very clean. We enjoyed watching the square dancing and attending the Sunday morning church service. The only disadvantage was the lumber mill across the creek that started up very early and woke us up. But even with that, I would give this campground a ten. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful camp ground and nice location. Stayed there three seasons and last time was reprimanded by management for washing off love bugs from front of camper. I just sprayed the front of camper, not an entire wash job. Walked down the street and the same person was washing their entire camper. Inconsistent rules for all campers. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Some of the sites facing Jonathan Creek are difficult to level. Large sawmill operation across the highway is quite noisy at times. Otherwise, this is a great destination for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We will definitely return to this park. Less that half of the sites are satellite friendly but cable and WiFi are available. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found this to be a very pretty well kept public campground that was also a Coast to Coast park. They had pull thru sites although we had a pull "in" site facing the stream, with full hookups and cable TV Were charged a surcharge of $6 for Cable TV for the two days. Had to pay for cable even though we didn't want it. We did have free Wi-Fi that we didn't know about or anyone mentioned. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wonderful park. Clean. Free putt-putt, Hillbill golf, heated pool, hot tub, beautiful stream, stocked fishing pond (catch & release), playground. Friendly staff works hard to keep park clean. This is one mile off I-40 with a well lit entrance. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is the roads are gravel as well as the sites but they are in great shape. They also have park model and cabins for rent as well. There are activities almost daily. They are about 40 minutes from Cherokee, and a little over an hour from Pigeon Forge. They are part of C2C, AOR, Passport America and RPI. I'm not sure about the nightly rates for public, but if you're part of AOR it's only $9/night. What a deal! We will camp here again and probably on a regular basis We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The price noted is the monthly rate. This is not an overnight-stay campground: only 6-month seasonal or year round. It is an adult only campground, although children are allowed for short visits. We first found this park in 2008; advertised as seasonal only, which greatly appealed to us. We started staying here part time from May-October 2009 and would rate the park a 9 for that year. The following year (2010) gets a rating of 8. Our final year here (2011) was not as enjoyable as there was a lot of tension in the air and new unwritten rules. This year’s rating is 2. As soon as we showed up in May, we could see the signs that the park was moving away from being an RV park and moving towards full-time trailer park living. Needless to say, we were not happy about that, and as it turns out, other campers are quite concerned as well. Several decisions made by management this summer reinforce the direction of the “RV Park” moving to a “trailer park” environment. For example, campers are now allowed to have permanent building sheds, remove portions of the fencing along the street, and erect canopies to extend their living space. Some of the sites resembled a tent city with all the add-ons going on in their site. The sites are VERY close to each other; one open awning almost extends to the next unit. Generally, this is not an issue, but there are some owners who insist on leaving their dogs alone in the unit to bark and yap the entire time they are away. As others have said, the noise from the street is very heavy during the day; however, traffic noise really calms down around sunset. The town of Maggie Valley is no longer attractive to families as most venues geared toward them have closed (many before the economy went south). With people living so close together comes a lot of DRAMA. From almost every site you can see and sometimes hear what is going on in the rest of the campground. The park manager adds to a lot of the drama. Enough said. The bathrooms are very clean as are the common areas in the clubhouse. My low rating of 2 for 2011 in no way reflects uncleanliness. This year, the park owner seemed detached from his investment even though he lives on the premises. A couple times this summer, we practically had to beg to have the grass mowed. Outside maintenance around the park has dramatically changed from our first year here. The park is in the heart of the town and within walking distance to several restaurants and shops; this is a big plus. Concrete patios are available at some sites because current or previous owners purchased them. We bought ours the first year here and it was well worth it. The park puts on a July 4 cookout; it is not only a good way to get to know your neighbors, but the food is fantastic. Another feast not to be missed is the annual fish fry. The park buys the fish and one of the campers spends all day cooking the fish and hushpuppies. Everyone else brings a dish. If you're looking for a seasonal spot with lots of activities, this is not the place, as it is a small park. We didn't need scheduled activities but some people may want that. In good conscience, I could not recommend this campground to a friend, but you make up your own mind. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice campground. Like the others that have posted have said, the road noise is annoying during the day if you hang around the campground. Bathrooms and clothes washing facilities are very clean and rated a 10. Sites are a little close but is an excellent location for your base of operations while touring the area. The camp host is very friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
I completely agree with the post from May 2006. I would give this campground a 10 but there is some road noise. It is very quiet at night, though. The wireless internet was strong and fast. The owners and camp host were very friendly and eager to answer questions about the area. They handed out a welcome package with brochures on the area when we checked in. Our site was roomy but next to the street with the picnic table next to the sidewalk. Some of the other spaces looked close together with slides out but it looked this way in all of the other campgrounds in the area too. The laundry was very clean and moderately priced. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We really enjoyed our stay here over the Memorial Day weekend. This is a small campground in the heart of Maggie Valley. It's close to everything. Even though it's on the main road (all of the other campgrounds are as well), it really quiets down at night. The wireless internet signal was strong. A nice trout stream runs right through the campground. It's actually stocked from the bridge on the campground property. The bathrooms are great. They are not your typical campground bathrooms. There is a house on the property that serves as an office, the owners residence, game room, coffee/tv room and houses the bathrooms as well. The owners keep them spotless. Speaking of the owners, they are new owners since the prior two reviews on this board and they make the campground what it is. From the minute we stepped in the office, we were made to feel at home. They let us know that if we had any needs, they would take care of them and you just have this feeling that it's not just lip service. They are really people oriented. If this campground were more isolated (in the woods) I would give it a 10. The owners still get a ten though. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Well maintained park with exceptionally clean restrooms and showers. Excellent hookups with firm, graveled sites but most require significant leveling. Very tight, small spaces. Park was full over the weekend and between trailers, motorhomes, tow vehicles and toads everyone was literally on top of each other. If you want much outdoor space and a modicum of privacy this isn't the place. Very friendly, helpful management. Centrally located and convenient to area attractions. We camped here in a camper.
[ 8 / 10 ]
Clean location on main street of Maggie Valley - close to ALL of Maggie Valley. Beautiful stream with truly rippling waters. Although we used a pull thru, the sites are a bit tight, but accessible. Owner is nice and accommodating. We camped here in a camper.
We have camped in this campground several times over the past 6 years, and it has definitely gone downhill since we were here 2 years ago. The swimming pool was torn out, and the hole has never been filled in. It is an eye sore and a water-filled hazard and poorly fenced. There is a charge for the WiFi, but the staff person warned me that it works off and on. You can sit on a hard bench with no shelter outside the office and get free WiFi, but it is very uncomfortable and exposed to the weather. We had a back-in site on the creek, and it rained constantly for 2 days straight. The creek rose, and we were told that we might have to move to higher ground. Fortunately, it finally stopped raining, and we didn't have to move. There was standing water throughout our site, and the rain wasn't heavy, just constant. There are big tree stumps all over the park, and they make it harder for big rigs to maneuver. The staff are very nice. We stayed there because we got 50% off the rates (which made it $21 a night), and because we like the location, in-between the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Cataloochee Valley. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is very tired. The full hookups worked well but the sites need new gravel. We had mud and puddles when it rained. The pool is torn up. The bath houses are very old and filthy. I could not use them. There were a lot of seasonal residents, many with old, dirty tailors that looked messy. We had to pay $5 per day for WIFI. No security. We were right by a highway which was busy and noisy all night, making sleep difficult. We will not return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I agree with the previous post. We were there a year ago and returned this year. When we got there the place was a mess. Hole in the office roof covered by a tarp, shingles still laying on the ground. What used to be the pool was now just a mud pit. The Wi-FI did not work. In the 2 weeks we were there, the men's room/shower was never cleaned as demonstrated by the same debris on the floor that was there on our first day still being there 2 weeks later. The interior walls and floor were covered with black mold. The office would not honor Passport America. The place has really gone downhill . Only positive is location in the valley on a nice creek We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here in 2011 & found this to be a very clean, well run park, so we returned here in April 2012 & found the park had gone down hill since a year ago. The Wi-Fi didn't work, the office building had a hole in the roof from a storm, the grass was 2 feet high, and the pool was torn up for repairs. We thought that maybe they just haven't had time to get things repaired, so we returned there one month later. EVERYTHING was the same: the hole was still in the office roof (with the new shingles still there on the ground to be used), the Wi-Fi still didn't work, and the pool was still not opened, but they had mowed the grass. (At least they did do something in a month). We will not be back to this park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a large campground with a variety of sites. We were in a long pull through in the "E" section that provided plenty of length for our motor home and tow. While the spaces next to us were vacant there was plenty of space. Not so when those sites fill. They are very tight. The site was dirt but level. There was no real hope of picking up Wi-Fi there. The campground resides on a busy road and the entry/exits have a relatively sharp drop off to the road. These can be a little rough on a motor home. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground was clean and pleasant. While we were parked on grass, it was level and dry. We were there for a 1 night stay and it was more than adequate for our needs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wonderful campground, great for visiting Maggie Valley. While it is true that there is a $5.00 charge for your guests, I can imagine that with their free NASCAR and movies at night on their giant outdoor big screen would draw people who are not staying at the park. In any event we really enjoyed staying here, we had a 40ft RV and a long 24' trailer with 2 big trikes on it, all fit on our site without disconnecting. We only had 30A but it was OK. I highly recommend this campground, I don't give out 9's usually. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for two weeks, the last of June. Busy place, good weekly rates ($210) was very family and dog oriented. The sites vary a great deal, some large and long, others are too small and shouldn't be used IMHO. As we were staying here this summer, the campground was in the process of changing it's name to Nascar Resort at Stonebridge. Same corporation owned and operated as far as I could tell. Some of the large trees and newly installed light posts make it difficult to back into some of the sites. The park is set up into two sections, one for seasonal/permanent and one for transients. Overall our favorite RV park in the area. Most of the RV parks in this area have been in business for many years and the sites can be smaller than needed for today's slide RVs. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
When we arrived at the campground we were escorted to our site. We were squeezed in between 2 other campers to the point that we had to choose between using our slide (a necessity) or our awning. We could not walk between the slide and the other camper on that side. The campers on both sides of us left early because we had been sandwiched in between them. The sites are too close together. A member of the office staff reprimanded my niece (age 11) for picking up a water shooter in the office to look at it when she had done nothing wrong. This same office person was rude to my mother-in-law on the same visit. Also, my nieces parents had to pay to visit the campground every time they wanted to see their children. The fee was in my opinion excessive. We were supposed to stay longer but we were so uncomfortable that we ended up leaving early and cutting our vacation short. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
After leaving a real bad campground down the road a ways, we pulled in here, dead tired and in need of a place to go. The people in the office were just wonderful. They treated us like family and we had never met them before!! They helped us out and gave us a very nice private site. They even told us a good place to eat!! We liked it so much we booked it for the season!! Would highly recommend this campground. It has 72 cable TV channels, good strong Wi-Fi and very good people!! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was my first experience since I was a child camping with a camper in a campground, so I consider myself new to this. All in all, we enjoyed our visit. The outside edges of some sites along the roads in the park were muddy, but the sites were fine, considering there had been a lot of rain. The sites were pretty small, however we lucked out and got a site near some trees, so we could not be crowded by another camper. However, I had to pull straight into the site, unhook, pull up, then back out of the site to avoid having to have the back of another camper with there septic line as our "front porch view". Another couple that went with us got double booked, so they had to share a site with another pop up. You could literally stand between their two campers and touch each with out having to reach far. That is just too close ! The next day he helped the man push his camper out so he would not have to break down everything. So, this was a negative about the place. The showers were fine, and the water was nice and hot. The bathrooms were littered with toilet paper and paper towels. A man came in to empty the trash, but the toilets were never cleaned or trash picked up in them. This was the Mens' restroom, and most of my species are probably messy anyway, so I guess this should be expected ?!?? My wife said the Ladie's restroom was fine. The stream was very nice and I caught one trout. The staff was fairly helpful. I did talk with one employee on the phone prior to the trip who was unprofessional but she got me what I needed. The campground was running a special with sites at $ 19.99 a night, so that was a plus ! In a nutshell, this was a good place, and I would go back, because I can deal with the little things that were not nice. If you want a perfect place, don't go here. If you are not picky this place will be just fine. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
A very beautiful location with large, shady lots in a convenient area. Campground is clean, well maintained and very quiet. Management is very professional and friendly. Had a great experience. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We camped here in a Class C motorhome with our two pugs. The first site we were given literally would have touched awning to awning with the other site meaning we would have all been basically eating together with the other site's occupants. This would have not afforded either campers any privacy whatsoever. We asked for a different site and were given a pull-through that afforded a little more privacy. The staff is friendly and there are planned activities for all ages. The bathrooms are very old and need updating. We would probably choose a newer campground next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for over a week, so we became very familiar with this campground. It is in a good location, and the staff was very friendly. They had lots of activities, and the stream is really beautiful. My biggest complaint and warning to other travelers is that if you don't get a stream side site, you are pretty much going to have no room at all. This makes getting into and out of your site quite difficult unless you have one of the few pull thru sites. They cram everyone in so close that if you put your awnings out, they touch the awning of the person next to you. We literally had our awnings overhanging the awning of the rig next to us. There is just no room. It gets very frustrating no matter how good your neighbors are. Other than that, it is a decent park that just needs updating. I don't think we will visit this park again if we are in the area. I go camping to get away. At this campground, you feel like you are living in New York city. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Just received an unsolicited phone call from this place. They call it a resort. The word is used very loosely on this one. Heated pool was unheated. Large fuel tank at base of entrance belonging to the gas station at the top of the road. Wi-Fi not! No planned activities to speak of. A few bands come in on the weekends. The sites have been developed so RV's face each other. Sites are so tight that awnings will actually hit each other. No privacy on any sites. There are much nicer camps in the area then this gem. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here over the Labor Day weekend. We made reservations and were given a site but when we arrived, they had assigned us another one. We happen to be staying in the 'buddy section' of the park. The site was rather small and you could hear and see everything your neighbors were doing. It was a grass site which was nice but had poor fire rings or should I say just a circle of rocks set up to be a fire ring. We got lucky in a sense as we were next to some real nice people who have taking to the roads full-timing. Next time we will definitely reserve a stream side site. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stone Bridge is a large park set next to a small stream/river in Maggie Valley. Many/most of the sites are occupied by elderly seasonal campers (who were wonderfully helpful to us) from Florida or other far-removed places. As a consequence, it’s very quiet and you’ll often have the campground bathroom to yourself if you don’t have full sewer on your rig. The bathrooms themselves are OK but could use some updating. Lots of shade. We had a creekside site and our kids played in the stream quite contentedly (we never made it over to the pool) when we weren’t off hiking in the Smokies or going to Ghost Town in the Sky (just up the highway). They do have a large grassy area where the kids can play and a game room if the weather doesn’t cooperate. They DON’T have wi-fi, contrary to what I read in the prior reviews. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Excellent campground in excellent area. We had a stream-side site. The kids loved it. They would have played in it all day long. Nice and clean. Also had a fire ring. Site was nice and big. Hookups were good. Lots of shading on the campground. Definitely would come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
All sites were tight, many set up for awnings to face your neighbor. Had "buddy site",but would not want a buddy site without a buddy. Power was an issue when sections F&G were full. Management knew about the issue, but did not get a licensed electrician in to fix it. Repeat customers say this is a known issue. Pool was small for size of campground. Did not see any security patrol after dark. Probably would not return unless we were guaranteed a larger site and are assured the power has been updated. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had so looked forward to this trip and staying at this resort. We made our reservations back in December of 2007 knowing that the reservation had to be paid in full and were non refundable so we, and our friends, could have adjoining sites. We arrived at the resort just after dark and checked in. Travis, the manager, escorted us to our site on the creek. When I saw the site I knew this was not going to be good. The sites in this resort are the tightest I have ever seen. After positioning several times we were finally able to get both the slide and the awning both open with a couple of inches to spare. Our view from under the awning was the pvc sewer hookup from the permanent camper next to us. Our friends were to arrive the next day so we just decided to make the best of the site we had. After doing some shopping we returned to the campground to find a fifth wheel set up in the site that was reserved for our friends. We talked to the manager (Travis) and he did apologize, but other than offer us a coupon for half off at a local restaurant, he put our friends in a site down the street from us. The heated pool was a joke. This pool is no where near big enough for the size of this resort. The big problem was the cloudy water that we felt was unsafe because you could not see the bottom. The gameroom should have been marked out of order. The pool table did not have any balls, the air hockey table had no puck, and the change machine worked when it felt like it. When these issues were reported, the staff was unconcerned because they said the games were operated by and outside company. This resort is more a haven for seasonal and permanent campers in my opinion. The creek; I will say; was beautiful. We will not stay at this resort again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was our first visit to this campground, and I have to admit, we were pleasantly surprised. We stayed along the creek, which was nice. Our kids tubed in the creek all day. The sites were very close with very little gravel. Some creek sites have a few trees. The bathrooms were very clean. The roads are paved which made it nice to ride bikes on. The campground was very quiet despite the tight sites. There were some scheduled activities, but not the children's activities as we expected from the internet schedule. They are getting a new activities director so hopefully they will have some more things for the kids to do. There is no playground, but there is a nice pool. We will come here again We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was our first time to campsite and we were spoiled! Park was incredible...clean, decorated for Holiday, attendees very attentive. Only issue was that "heated pool" was a brisk 70, if that. They told us they were waiting on a propane delivery. It was unseasonable warm, so kids didn't mine but few adults would swim. We plan on returning every July 4th. Visit Butts on the Creek restaurant down the road (walking distance)...it was delicious and a change from camp food! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Spent a long weekend here with my brother & his family. We had a "buddy site" away from the creek which suited us well. The Shriners were in town for the weekend, but even with a fuller campground it stayed pretty quite. Bathhouses & pools were clean, they even had a band play on Saturday night up by the pool. My only negatives would be the place is a bit dated, and a lot of the sites are "buddy sites" (which can be good or bad). We will return again, as this campground is only an 1/2 from the house, and makes for a close weekend get way. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
New managers were exceptionally friendly and helpful. In fact, the whole staff, everyone we met were friendly and ready to do whatever they could to help us enjoy our stay. We camped on the creek and loved listening to the sound of the water as we drifted off to sleep. The bathrooms were very clean. The campground was decorated for Fall. It was beautiful! We especially loved the swing area. We felt like we were on a movie set it was just so perfect. Definitely we will be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

My family has camped here for 3 years now. I love this area of the Mountains. This campground is really nice , my only complaints are that the sites are pretty close together and lots of the sites along the creek have drainage problems. When it rains water puddles in places. Other than that it is a great place for bike riding and walking as all streets are paved. Close to town and Great Smokey Mountains National Park. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice and shady campground with the beautiful mountains as a backdrop. Attendees were super nice. Luckily, we stopped in for the night and got a site backing up to the rippling creek, even w/out a reservation. Perfect. Everything was clean and well kept. We'll be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stay at Stone Bridge Campground a couple of times a year. The park has a lot of seasonal or permanent residents, but all sites are exceptionally maintained. The campground sites are level and the pull through sites can accommodate any type of rig! The only thing negative is the older bathrooms could use some updating. My biggest complaint is that they do not have any hand soap or towel in the bathrooms! I would think this should be required. The staff has always been very friendly and helpful. You can walk to restaurants from this campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is one of the most relaxing and quiet RV parks we have visited. We parked on a creekside site on Jonathan Creek. With the windows open and nothing but the sound of the water flowing in the creek, the sleeping was great. Fire rings are located on the creek bank for those that want a campfire. We sat during the day next to the creek for meals and reading/relaxing. Non-creekside sites are available for $5 less. The sites are very small so not sure how big rig friendly they are. Our rig is 33 feet plus toad, and we had to be careful in the interior roads. Also be aware that there is a drainage problem on some of the sites, so after heavy rain there may be some standing water for a bit. It looks like trees and light poles were left or placed with no regard for RV manuvering. Our assigned site was fine, but next time I will check out the other open sites and request a change if the assigned site does not look suitable. There are several pull through sites but not right on the creekside. The staff was brief and to the point, and we did not see any of them after registering. This park is in the middle of Maggie Valley so it is near all of the shows, close to Lake Junaluska, and a few miles up to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Asheville is only about a 30 minute drive. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Maggie Valley area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground for the money, smallish sites, had a tough time getting awning all the way out because of a tree. Saw some people have a little bit of trouble with getting a site big enough for the slideout, but management moved them to a bigger site to accommodate them. I will go back in July of 2003 for a few days. It's a very quiet campground for my family and our dog, a good family enviroment. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
