Pigeon Forge – Bear Cove Village (October 2015)
Check In: The process to check-in was excellent! There was a paved place to pull off the side by the office, get your maps and information, and pay in just minutes. A golf cart directs you to your RV spot and helps with backing in. The streets are slightly cramped due to people parking in front of their RV, however it is in the mountains so we didn’t expect there to be wide streets.
RV Spots: There are 102 RV spots and 18 cabins. There aren’t any flat or spacious spots because you’re in the mountains. The spots are concrete with a picnic table and fire pit. Everything was nice and clean!
WiFi: Great! We had no problems at all.
Amenities: This campground has two pools, a playground, dog park, fishing pond, and a wonderful camp store with such adorable camping decor! If I had more time in the store, I would’ve left a little poorer. 😉
Kids/Pets: This is a great location for both! With two pools, playground, and friendly neighbors, there’s plenty to do for those with kids and/or pets! I’m not sure if the pet area is fenced, so if this is a concern of yours, check beforehand.
Staff: The staff was very friendly and easy to work with during phone calls and check in. We have no complaints!
Local Area: Dollywood and Dollywood Splash Country is down the street, as well as Dixie Stampede. Gatlinburg, Ober Gatlinburg, and Wonderworks located less than 30 minutes away. We highly recommend Cade’s Cove which is a bit of a drive (1.5 hrs), but totally worth it for hiking and sightseeing!
**Special Shout Out: This campground is a Tents for Troops campground! An awesome way to thank military members!
Reason and Rating: Local Sights and Somewhere to Park – 7/10
