Gatlinburg CG Recommendations?

Two trailers headed to Gatlinburg, TN in August. Any recommendations on where to stay for two families with a total of six children (3-12)? We would appreciate a scenic spot with family activities, yet not too far from the tourist traps.

We stayed at claboughs last year and enjoyed it so much we are headed back there in about 4 weeks we cant wait. Nice full hook up campground with a game room,pool and lazy river. Only about 15 minutes from dolly wood and all the tourist trap spots.

We spent several days at Smoky Bear Campground last year and really enjoyed it (with kids 3-6). Playground, pool, and hot tub. Depends on how close to "town" you want to be. It's roughly 13 miles outside of Gatlinburg so there will be a little drive to the "tourist traps".

gatlinburg

There is a brand new park, Anchor Down about 20 miles from the traps. We are going to stay there the week after the 4th of July. Every review I have read says its a great place, right on the water has a pool. Check it out online.

Happy Camping

Adventure bound campground is 12 miles north of gatlinburg! We stayed along side a mountain stream couple of years ago for spring break and really enjoyed it!

Thumbs up

The best campground in Gatlinburg is Twin Creek hands down! It is rated 10-10-10. It is all paved with concrete patios and it is the cleanest best maintained campground in the Smokies. We have been camping there since 1990 and they just keep getting better. The owners, Mary and Duff live on site and there are never any problems. We were there two weeks ago on our maiden voyage in our new Jayco Eagle TT and loved it. They have a trolley stop and you can ride all day for $2.00. Food City across the street.

Stop the press! You have to check out the KOA in Townsend! We have been camping here for over 10 years. Tie Die t-shirt classes, movie night, playground and pool for the kiddos. Campsite is on a beautiful creek. General store on site. Oh yea, wagon rides too! We love this place. It is about 20 minutes from Gatlinburg and best of all it is just a few minutes from Cade's Cove. Check it out. http://koa.com/campgrounds/townsend-great-smokies/
