Clabough's Campground & Cabins . . . 800-965-8524 - Stay at one of our 310 large, shaded sites with 2 swimming pools, a lazy river, very clean facilities and even a market with complete grocery line and a restaurant on site! Family owned and operated

We like this place. Have stayed there a few times now.

We live pretty close to the area and frequent it often. The problem is finding a campground with both full hookups and space/privacy. In short, it doesn't exist in the immediate area. Your best bet is to find something in the Townsend area, but it's a good 45 minutes to the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area. Even then, you won't have much privacy, but it's better than other areas where you are packed in like sardines (like Claboughs). We've stayed at Tremont Outdoor Resort and like it fairly well, but again, not much privacy. I've also stayed at Up the Creek in Pigeon Forge and their sites are nice and a little more private, but no bath house, pool, etc. if those things are important to you.

I guess you must have stayed in the front section. The sites in the back are not bad at all.

Townsend is getting touristy but is still fairly quiet but we seem to go off season. There is a KOA there that is 1/2 hour from PF. Sites are kinda close bit I stayed in camps that the sites were closer.

We have stayed at River Plantation many times. Clean, and more space than some. Nice pool area. haven't stayed there yet, but Anchor Down seems nice after a drive through. A little further out, and roomier sites. But $$$. None of the campgrounds close to PF/Gatlinburg are very spacious. You can get more room, but with a 30-45 minute drive. Even using the back roads, traffic is bad on the weekends.

Wow, the more i hear, the less i want to visit. The whole reason for this particular area is its near family (wedding) and the wife wants to revisit tennessee. Anyone have suggestions for a days/half days drive from Charlette/Moorsville, NC thats quiet, family friendly (3 little ones) and enjoyable?
