The amenities are really what makes Camp Margaritaville Pigeon Forge stand head and shoulders above any other RV resort we’ve ever stayed at. We enjoyed it so much, the only time we left was to visit Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The rest of the time, we stayed & played at Camp Margaritaville.
- Laundry / Bathhouse – The bathhouse offers private showers and an adjacent laundry room. There is even a dog wash area.
- Barkaritaville – Our dog loved running around the large, off-leash dog park.
- Playground – Centrally located among the campsites is a large playground and game pavilion.
- Swimming Pool – The pool had a splash pad, waterslide, and hot tub. The bar opens to the pool so you can order food and drinks while you watch the kids play. When we were there it was open from 9am to 11pm, the longest pool hours we’ve ever experienced at a campground or hotel!
- Lazy River – The lazy river is located on the opposite side of the lodge. Both the pool and Lazy River have recorded music playing for your enjoyment.
- Entertainment center – The entertainment area has the largest arcade we’ve seen with numerous games, as well as duckpin bowling, billiards, darts, and a snack bar.
- Bar & Grill – This is one of the few RV resorts with a full-service bar and grill. The food was tasty American casual and the margarita menu is as long as the food menu. Each morning, they offer a fabulous breakfast buffet.
- Camp Store – In addition to camp items and souvenirs, the camp store has fancy coffee drinks, smoothies, and grab & go food items like sandwiches and salads.
