Creekside RV Park Pigeon Forge TN

We spent a week at the Creekside RV Park in Pigeon Forge, TN.  The park is conveniently located off the main Parkway in Pigeon Forge.  It is a quiet little park and well taken care of.  The spaces are fairly close together and that makes it hard to back into your space.

We had a time backing in.  A couple of things that made it difficult:  1. Narrow lot 2. Utilities (The way they are spaced makes it difficult to place the trailer with slide outs.) 3. Narrow street between campsites and vehicles parked in front of where your vehicle needed to cut.  Once the people across from us moved their vehicles out of the way, we were able to back into the sites better.  It was probably one of the roughest parking places we have had to park.

Other than the parking issue, we enjoyed our stay.  The campground was very quiet and friendly.  The pool was small, but there wasn't many using it.  The laundry facility was nice.  Three washing machines and dryers.  The cost to do laundry was reasonable and the machines worked fast.

We enjoyed going down to the river that ran beside the campground.  Little Man enjoyed wading and skipping rocks.  The night it stormed the river went from a quiet little stream to raging.  It must have raised the water level by three to four feet that night.  The campsites sit high up from the river, so there was not issues of flooding.

Word of Caution:  When we camped, it was the beginning of August and the school behind the campground was holding marching band practice in the morning and football practice in the evening.  You could not hear the noise inside the camper.  However, outside during practices it could be loud.  Most of the time we were gone and this did not bother us.   So, if you don't like noise and want to sit outside in the evenings beware.
