We bought this in 2006 when it was called Crown Park and owned by Burroughs and Chapin. We have yet to stay since HICV took over. (but we have been to South Beach resort in Myrtle Beach a week ago. Man , as nice as the resort staff was, the sales staff was hard sell hard sell hard sell).
You CAN fish in the creek that runs next to the resort, but there's really no point to.
Wired internet access. If you don't have a patch cable the front desk can lend you one. If you have more than one pc (as we normally do), you'll need to bring a switch so's you can share or set up an ad-hoc AP on one of the PC's.
Anyway, we love the location (just off the parkway and less than 1/2 mile from the door to the park entrance). We think the decor and amenities are just fine. The rooms are a bit smaller than other resorts, besides we don't spend much time in the rooms anyway, too much to do! Hiking, running, and disc golf. Hit up the Nike Clearance store. Grab a pie at Smokey Mountain pizza in Sevireville (cept closed on Sundays, sniff).
