“Okay park, but if you're looking for excellent go elsewhere.”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

We stayed here July 3-7th 2013 in a 27' trailer, on site #2. First the positives. The pool was sparkling clean when we were here. Kids enjoyed water slide and inflatables. TV reception was good and consistent. Now the not so positives. Our site was not large enough for our trailer and truck to fit without being in the road. Most of the people in office are friendly, with the exception of one woman and man. The woman sort of soured us on the place the first day. Be careful on the water slide if you are a grown up or teenager because you will travel faster, it's hard to control, and the concrete will scrape you. There aren't enough bathrooms, and what's there was very dirty in the evenings. They are poorly planned out, and there's nowhere to hang your clothes or lay them out of the water. While we were there our kitchen faucet stopped up and there was debris coming out of our shower. Our next door neighbor said he was having water pressure problems too, so the water must have dirt and gravels in it.

All in all, it want awful, but it wasn't great either. I've stated where the showers are clean and more convenient for getting ready, with hooks, shelves, etc. you can have a nice trip here if you have a good attitude, but there are better places out there.

We stayed in site 6. Most of the sites are not level, and the pictures you see where the road is paved is partially true, but more than half of the campground is gravel, and all of the sites are gravel and muddy. Most of the campground is on a hillside, so when it rains, be prepared for water running down hill. They do have a fair bit of trees, and it really feels like a campground. No seasonal trailers here, just a few newer campers that the campground rents out. They have good cable (68 channels), AT&T wireless is almost nonexistent, and Verizon has 4G LTE with 1-2 bars. The best sites are the electric / water / no sewer sites: so if you have a tote, bring it and dump your water as needed at the dump stations. It is worth it to hear the running water all night outside your camper. Most of the full hookup sites are not near the water. Could not connect to the WiFi, and the front desk staff is of no help. They have no tech support (1-800 #) to help with the WiFi. You either get it or you don't. I never could connect. The waterslide, and bounce houses are closed on Wednesday and open at noon every other day. Pool is pretty big, but the pool deck gets dirty quick with all of the gravel and mud being brought in from people’s shoes. I guess I had higher expectations for the campground, than what I actually got. Probably would not return as this campground is a good 20-30 minute drive to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Would probably find a closer campground and skip the waterslide and bounce houses, as we hardly spent any time at the campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Room Tip: Book an electric/water site and bring a tote to dump your water. These are the best sites as they b...

We chose crazy horse based on their price structure and variety and are so glad we did!! We were far enough away from the crazy gatlinburg crowds but close enough to enjoy the parks daily. We rented one of the rustic cabins, which worked out great with our family of 6. We had more space than tent or camper would have provided. We loved the covered porch and the babbling stream. The kids enjoyed the trout pond and had lots of luck fishing. The park had just opened for the season, so all the ammenities were not up and running yet. The bathrooms were close and clean. Our friends had a deluxe cabin with a bathroom which we will opt for next time. Although we were trying to have a true "camping" experience and really wanted the family to unplug, which we did. Very happily!!

Room Tip: Explore the website. They have many choices & are all good!

We camped here often this year, but next year will take a break from this campground. My husband and children love to fish the trout pond. The inflatables have been nice this year. I think it is time they get a lifeguard at the pool. Too many people are leaving young children unattended in a very overcrowded pool. Thank God over Labor Day a doctor and nurse were camping because they literally saved a three year olds life from drowning. We did not swim this particular weekend because the pool is too crowded. There seems to be some kind of water issue everytime we go. They need a new well pump or well. Not sure. Love the creekside campsites the best.

Room Tip: If you stay in campsite 141 be sure the tent campers next to you leave room for you to pull out of y...

When we pulled into the campground, I was a little disappointed because it looked old. So, I wish it were a little more updated, but the kids loved the pool and waterslide and the pool deck with all of the chairs is nice. We decided to add another day onto our trip, but had to switch sites. We were moved to another, very narrow site (rare at this campground) and nearly got our trailer stuck. The staff saw us panicking a little and came and helped us. We unhooked our trailer and they literally backed it into a site using a tractor. It was really so nice of them to help us so much. We had a creek site the first few nights, which was really nice. A lot of games in the game room are not working, but overrall the kids loved it and we did too. Not a bad trip into Gatlinburg. Definitely more roomy sites and better overrall than the other campgrounds near this one.

Room Tip: add a few feet to your trailer when making the reservation to make sure you are on a site big enough...

We stayed at site 137 for a full week and it was pretty great. Kids loved playing in the creek, fishing in the well stocked pond, going down the unexpectedly good waterslide, jumping in the bounce house and swimming in the good sized pool. Bathrooms were kept clean. Showers were good sized and clean although water pressure in the newer showers was poor. Employees were pleasant and helpful. We would definitely go back!

Three shower houses, the first one had ice cold water, they said they had a part on order, second shower house had 6 showers, 5 of which were locked, third shower house was actually one shower hidden in the main bathroom, no hooks no locks, no water pressure in any of the showers. The pool was big, the waterslide was fun, clearly stated that it was closed on Weds. however it was only open from noon until six the other days, store very expensive, $5 for a quart of milk. Employees super friendly. Arrived on a Saturday, it was packed, but by Monday it was quiet. The bathrooms themselves were marginally clean, there was a flip flop on the floor for 3 days, so questioned how often they were cleaned.
