If you’re planning a trip to the Great Smoky Mountains, check out Honeysuckle Meadows RV Park. It’s located in picturesque Wears Valley in Sevierville, TN about ten miles from the main drag in Pigeon Forge, TN. Not only do they offer RV sites, but there are also cabins for rent, some of which are pet friendly. We’ve stayed here a couple of times and enjoy being close enough to join in the crowds and excitement when we want, but away from it when we want or need peace and quiet.
This is a beautiful, dog-friendly park with the largest lots we’ve seen in over two years of full-time RVing and the lovely folks who run it are friendly and helpful. Many of the lots have amazing year round mountain views as well. In season, there is a very nice pool for guests and a deli and grill that serves a variety of burgers, sandwiches and salads. They offer full hookups (30 and 50 amp) including cable and wifi. Speaking of wifi – there are repeaters located throughout the park and provide the best service we’ve experienced anywhere in our more than two years of full-time travel. The parking pads are nicely graded gravel and are level, have picnic tables and firepits. A few lots even have decks. The park is somewhat hilly, so if you enjoy walking through campgrounds, you’ll get plenty of exercise. For those who like to fish, there’s a small on-site lake that is catch and release. It’s also pet friendly, so bring your furry family members. There’s no separate dog park and no baggies available (make sure you bring your own) but there’s plenty of space for walking dogs of any size.
Overall, Honeysuckle Meadows RV Park is a wonderful, relaxing home base for exploring all that the Great Smoky Mountains have to offer. In my view, the only downside to this park is that there is no bathhouse or laundry facility here so you must be self-contained.
