River Plantation RV Park, Sevierville, TN

Date of Stay: Wednesday August 8 - Sunday 12, 2012 (4 nights)

Rate:  $37/night

Website:  River Plantation RV Park
   1004 Parkway
   Sevierville, TN 37862

Description:  Gravel roads and parking pads with FHU (50A) and cable.  They do offer Signature sites which have concrete pads on the Little Pigeon River that borders the park.  A rock quarry is on the other side of the river but not noticeable due to the trees on the bank.  We stayed on site 165 which is a pull-thru in the middle of the park.  Laundry is in the bathhouses.  Swimming pool and LP tank fill also near the office.  They have a nice Conference Center for rallies.   The park is between Sevierville and Pigeon Forge which leads to Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountain National Park beyond.  It is a very commercial area with lots of restaurants, shops and live entertainment.  The park itself is relatively quiet.

Activities:  This is a busy area and anything and everything is close by for entertainment.  We have camped here several years ago in Gin’s parent’s Winnebago and again in April 2011 for an RV-Dreams Rally.  In 2011 we spent a day at Cades Cove which is part of the Great Smoky Mountains.  This time we enjoyed a ride on the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail.  It was like a leisurely hike in the woods without leaving the car.  A young black bear even strolled right in front of us and ignored our presence. 

Trash and Recycle:  A few dumpsters throughout the park.  No recycle bins in the area.
