We stayed at Pine Mountain RV Park which is fairly new and very nice but expensive. Especially good for children because they have a splash pool next to bathhouse and arrangements with the hotel across the street to use the pool.
The previous weekend we stayed in the Maggie Valley / Waynesville area at Creekwood Farms. Very nice place but right next door is Pride RV Resort which has a pool and more amenities for children.
Good info... Thanks Jerry.. I lived in Knoxville for a while and LOVED driving up there in the pickup.. (before my rv days) drive around and try to get lost... Found a beautiful clearing on top of a mountian,,, no biggy for my "then " 3/4 ton Dodge 4x4,,, total peace up there... Anyway, still trying to talk DW into a trip back to The Smokies... I was close this time but "we" agreed to go to the Gulf instead... Next month hopefully....
