Date of Stay: Wednesday August 8 - Sunday 12, 2012 (4 nights)
Website: River Plantation RV Park
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.
