smokey mountains

Planning a trip to the smokey mountains this summer with the family. We have two young girls. Looking for a nice campground that has amenities (pool playground etc) for the kids. We like one that has alot of activities.

Any suggestions?

Probably a KOA in the area.
In Gattlingerg activities are never far :-)

Were you looking for a c/g with activities on site? Or just one in an area where there are things to do locally? What area are you looking to stay close to in the Smokey Mtns?

Hard to beat Rivers Edge in Pigeon Forge... Great camping spots and location is just inside Pigeon Forge coming in from the East side from Gatlinburg. We always enjoy our stay there. We have also stayed at their log cabins a few times as well. Great Gatlingburg/Pigeon Forge location...

We stayed at, the bear cove village, in Pigeon Forge, TN. last April, great place and just 1 mile from Dollywood!! www.bearcovevillage.com
In April 2011 we stayed in Gatlinburg, http://abcamping.com/abgatlinburg/
We liked the bear cove village better because of its location. Both places were great, with plenty of stuff to do.

We love "Up the Creek RV Park". It is a small CG but the sites are very nice and easy to get into.

This past summer we stayed at the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg KOA, it was ok at best. If we ever go back we'll look elsewhere for a campground.
The good thing about this campground was its location, its right beside Patriot park which is the main hub for the trolley system. Easy walk from our site, the trolleys can take you just about anywhere in the area.
