I’m not sure we will stay here at Little Arrow Resort in Townsend again. I would never recommend staying on site A17. We had our first camping trip at Little Arrow this past weekend. Although we had a wonderful time with family, we had to leave our campsite a big part of the day to do it. First of all, starting early in the morning and lasting until late afternoon there was a horrible stench that emanated from the main septic tank riser. Because of the smell, it was difficult to get our breakfast
cooked outside, and we had to retreat to the inside of the camper to eat. Because of the horrible odor, our campsite was swarmed with black biting flies, which made moving around the campsite miserable. We had to keep our camper and ourselves sprayed (including our one year old grandchild). Although I reported the terrible odor to a nice lady riding through the campground on a golf cart, nothing was done or could be done (maybe?). The smell and flies would subside by late evening, and we were able to be outside around the campfire. The other issue with campsite A17 is that other campers and their children use that campsite as a pass-through to the road to ride bikes or go to the other campsite loop. We tried everything to stop them from moving our vehicle to block the access to directly (and
politely) asking folks not to walk through the campsite. There are designated paths for campers, but judging from the trails, the practice of cutting through that campsite is a long-standing tradition there. We had kids ride their bikes or run through up on our paved patio right next to the camper although the entire campsite behind us was empty. So...my advice is if you stay at this campground, please be sure to avoid this campsite or any other located next to a popular non-designated path and one of the septic tank risers.

What a fantastic place!
We are LOCAL - drove 15 miles to just ‘getaway.’ We found a community of other campers who were just awesome, so many kids and dogs, people playing games, a food truck. Management is what sets the pace for a facility like this. The river, a bear visit in the night, it was all so neat. Our GLAMPING tent was well worth the price. Coolest shower I have ever been in. We will come again.

we spent 4 nights there and loved it. Unfortunately is was during the Corona Virus. The sites are larger than average, covered picnic table on the river sites and built in fire pits. The river sites are great.

We spent 3 nights in one of theri priener cabins last weekend. It was very warm, clean, comfortable, and quiet. The staff was super. A fully functional kitchen but there is also lots of good eating at local places nearby if you dob't want to cook while you are on vacation. A scenic, and not too long, drive to Piegon Forge or Gatlinburgh if that's your thing. Very convenient to Cade's Cove. All in all, a very nice place to spent some quiet time. Staying in one of these cabins was the perfect combination (for us) of the joys of camping with the conveniences of home (bed, tv, electric heat, etc.).

Just sent 2 nights in TH6
We just had 2 adults and 2 teens in Tiny House 6 for 2 nights. Totally cute house. Great amenities. Clean and well kept grounds.
- TH6 has basically no neighbors
- The Tiny Home had everything we needed
- The store had lots of things, and the staff was very friendly
- The grounds were nice, with a cool tree house for little kids and a huge Teepee
- The cost in winter was reasonable for the Tiny Home novelty
- This is the closest you can get to the Park entrance - convenient
- Late check-in was very easy
- TV was nice. Heat was good. Hot water fine, etc...
The not so good:
- The cabinet where a laundry facility would be in another model of this home smelt like grey water. We ended up draping a towel over the entire cabinet to block the odor. This eliminated it. I forgot to mention it to the staff at check-out.
Overall, a very nice place.
- Rooms: 4
- Sleep Quality: 5
- Service: 5
