Rippling Waters RV Park and CampgroundRippling Waters RV Park and Campground in Sevierville, Tennessee
We visited this park on September 30, 2014, and stayed for 2 day(s).
We returned to Rippling Waters Campground for a two-night travel stop because our earlier experience was pleasant, and once again, it was on the way. This time we stayed in a pull-thru site. There was plenty of room between each pull thru. Cable TV is still included in the full hook-up, and this time our reception was much better.
We opted for the riverside site because it wasn’t that much more in price. The river fluctuates constantly and on occasion you’ll get to hear and see the rippling waters the campground is named for.
Sites are a bit close together. Our site featured 50amp service, water and sewer.
One complaint on the water access. Our supply faucet was low to the ground. In fact, a pit was dug around it so you could connect the supply line to the faucet.
Cable/Satellite television provided also. Reception at our site was poor. We got better reception using our antenna picking up local stations with nearly as many channels to choose from.
The park is quiet, with the occasional sound of helicopters flying around as they land and takeoff from their scenic tours site across the road from the campground. They are not overly loud, so you probably won’t notice them much.
If you’re going to arrive late, you need to call ahead for site assignment and instructions as no one will be around to escort you to your site after 5ish.
The pull through sites are nice and long, the Park is definitely big rig friendly. The roads and pads are gravel so drive slow, it can be a bit bumpy in places.
When you depart, you can only exit by turning right onto Hwy 441 towards Pigeon Forge. Fortunately this stretch of road is six lanes wide, so you can do a U-Turn at the next set of traffic lights. Heavy traffic on this roadway, so be patient if attempting this.
If you’re planning to travel east towards North Carolina, chances are your GPS/Google/MapQuest might route you along Hwy 441 east to join up with I-40. I suggest unless you are comfortable driving narrow winding roads, you opt to go north from Sevierville to get on I-40 then take it east. Time wise it’s probably even faster. However, if you do take Hwy 441 out of Sevierville, you will pass the Bush Beans facility and Country Store.
