Let me start by saying that I've been spoiled. We just stared camping again this year and every time we camped before it was in Townsend, Tennessee. To be fair, I am comparing two different animals here so take it how you see it. The great thing about this place is location. You are just minutes away from all the attractions in the Forge and the campground is nice, clean and kid friendly. My only problem is that there is zero privacy. The campers are parked in such a way that you essentially share "backyards" with people. In our site the fire ring was mere feet from the neighbors. This is due to the campground being so large/filled with sites. I like my camping just a little more private so we'll only come back for a weekender here or there but if you don't mind about that this is the place for you. Excellent, convenient location at a fair price. Townsend is more relaxing and private but the cost is over double and you're a decent drive from any attractions.
