There's something special about camping that you simply can't get from staying in a hotel room. Give yourself the chance to reconnect with nature and the people you're visiting with by living simply, away from all the commotion of everyday life. Whether you're here for a week or just a few days, you'll see why people come back to camp in the Smokies time and time again. To help you plan for your trip, here are 4 of the best RV resorts and campgrounds in the Smoky Mountains that you are sure to enjoy.
Riveredge RV Park offers 175 beautifully landscaped campsites with the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg, and Sevierville all just minutes away! Get your morning routine in full swing as you get ready for the day in one of two 5-star bathhouses. Your kids can have a blast on the playground, and you can all enjoy fishing in the Little Pigeon River or playing in the arcade, fully equipped with more than 30 games!
Riverbend Campground is conveniently located just a half mile off the Pigeon Forge Parkway! You'll be within walking distance to shopping malls, restaurants, and attractions.

You can also feed the ducks by the creek with food from their special feeding station. If you visit during the warmer months you and your family can stay cool in the lazy river. Although camping is all about connecting with people, not devices, technology is needed in today's world. For this reason, they also offer free wifi and great cell phone service.
