Dixieland Music & RV Park includes an enclosed pavilion, making it an excellent site for music festivals. We stayed here for a week surrounding a bluegrass festival. The park has hosted bluegrass festivals for many years, and has recently come under new management and been restored and improved. Sites are sufficiently wide for RV's to have slides and awnings out. There is a part Wi-Fi system as well as a cell tower fairy near with reliable 3G service for our My-Fi device. The rest rooms are kept exceptionally clean and the grounds are, too. All permanent sites are clean and well cared for. People coming to Waldo should remember that the town, located on U.S. 301 is a notorious speed trap, providing almost all the income for town management. Drivers should remember and drive appropriately. The park is an excellent venue for small-medium music festivals as well as a good stopping over place for sno-birds heading in either direction.
Dumplin Valley provides a quiet, country setting just off exit 407 of I-40 in East Tennessee. It is a simple quiet campground that provides few amenities and all the necessaries. The restrooms are spotless, the grass neatly mowed, and The hosts are friendly and helpful. It is an ideal spot for an RVer to stop for a night while heading across Tennessee or to visit the sites in Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg if you're not looking for a resort setting. While there is no cable TV, over the air TV from nearby Knoxville is excellent. We have stayed there three times during the Dumplin Valley Bluegrass Festival and for an additional week because we like it as a campground.
We used our Sr. Access Card to pay for our stay at the very nice Bandit's Roost COE campground convenient to Wilkesboro, NC and Wilkes Community College where the annual music festival Merlefest is held in late April. The site is on W. Kerr Scott reservoir, and has large, well-shaded sites as well as closely stacked lakeside sites on a peninsula. The showers are kept reasonably clean, except on weekends when heavy use makes this more difficult. Internet access via cell towers is strong. There are a number of sites offering satellite shots. We stayed there about a week this year and plan to return.
