RV park located at a working horse ranch about 6.5 miles from Interstate, somewhat out of the way in the country but a good place for a quiet stay or base to explore this section of the Appalachians. No problem with our 36' Motorhome plus Pickup Truck toad. Gravel entrance road that needs a little work on the potholes. Both back in and pull through sites available. Sites are grass and mostly level. Simple park in an open field. Small but clean bath house. Nice camp store on site along with fishing pond & small playground for kids. The owner was very nice and accommodating. He checks visitors frequently so the park is secure and he makes sure you have what you need for a nice stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is a hidden gem! We pulled in for a week and stayed for a month. Beautiful mountain views and great staff. The blueberries were ripe and we picked our own. The apple orchard was not yet ready for picking but we enjoyed walking through it. The camp mascot is a pot belly pig named "Miss Piggy" and the campground dog is a little Jack Russell mix called "little man." If you want a different experience in camping try this place: large sites (all with 50 amp) and easy in/out in our 42 ft motorhome. It is about 6 miles off I-26. Park has great hosts!

One of the most unique experiences we've ever had RVing! This is a working horse ranch with an adjacent RV park. You have beautiful 360 degree views of the Smokey Mountains. You can back right up to the lake, and watch the horseback riding events, etc. It's wonderful to see all the animals, including a 27 year old horse who roams free and never wanders off, and a family pet named "Miss Piggy", a cute as a button pot-bellied pig. This is a real camping experience and one not to be missed if you're in the Bristol/Johnson City area of eastern Tennessee. The owners were wonderful accommodating hosts...we will be back! Oh, and the cleanest bath house I've ever seen...well worth the money! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
There are very friendly and helpful staff in this family operated campground. It is a heavily wooded campground just off the interstate. The access road is a bit tight for larger rigs. The sites are pretty close together with few or no trees or bushes between many of them. We stayed for 6 nights while visiting family so we were gone almost all day. Since it was pre-season, the campground was practically empty except for us and a few long term rigs. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Owners were very nice and location was very convenient for a one night stop over on our way south. Not somewhere I would go for a vacation. Some of the sites are close together but the other campers were very quiet and the vibe was good. Although it is close to the highway, we did not notice any road noise. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is a very convenient stop-over. It is very fast off and on the interstate. They have very woodsy, shaded sites. Some sites are close together, most sites could be very private if hook-ups had been placed on the opposite side(?!) I have found this lack of foresight in other parks, very friendly owners. Our site needed quite a bit of leveling but had a nice yard and creek side rushing water sounds were soothing. A nearby restaurant (meat & 3) was worth multiple visits, food was delicious. (We had dinner and breakfast). Unpleasantly well-lit and no charm however. Still, the best choice I have found in the immediate area. Quiet. Good dog-walking, it smells of forest and moss. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Absolutely beautiful place!!! Very friendly people. We got in well after dark and everyone around my site turned their headlamps on so I could get parked. This park is way back in the woods so there is no light at night, no highway noise, and most likely no place with a good view of the sky for a roof mounted satellite dish. I am in site 18 and have no signal. Wi-fi is good and people are very friendly. If you are in the area, this place is a must!!! For $25 this is the nicest place I've stayed for any amount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stumbled onto this place by accident and loved it. Super nice folks that own and run Woodsmoke, one of the nicest cleanest places we have stayed at. If ever in the area again will make it a point to stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is one of our favorite campgrounds. It is most appropriate for those who truly enjoy the outdoor experience, not for those who are expecting to be entertained nonstop. It is very quiet, beautiful, clean and well maintained. Woodsmoke is an excellent value for the area, approximately one half the cost of the closest KOA campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
They have wi-fi and about 1/3 of the sites can see a satellite TV from your rooftop. The other sites would require a portable dish. The restrooms and showers were very clean and the water was hot. Ample trash cans. Sites were well separated and level. Leaves raked and trees pruned. The price is as low as you're going to see in the area in a private campground. Gravel road going into the place is narrow, but effectively is one way. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Campground was over priced, it would have been a nice $15 a night campground. We don't always visit/use the campground restrooms but they did have the cleanest ones we have ever been in. The sites are small,hard to back into, we could not drive directly out from our site but had to drive into an area, back up then pull out! There was also nothing for children,and only 2 local tv stations. We attended a rally and there was no shelter or even a campsite big enough for our group to meet and eat. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was probably the quietest and most relaxed campground we have ever stayed at. Management was very helpful. Although close to the interstate it was very quite. Will surely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
