We are locals who camp often in the area. We value friendly staff, cleanliness of campground, sites, and bath house facilities. All of these rare excellent at Big Meadow. Some campgrounds call themselves "family" campgrounds. These folks set the standard. We have already booked to return again. This is the best overall campground in Townsend in my opinion.

Stayed: August 2017

Great campground, people are always friendly and accommodating. We have camped with Big Meadow for over three years and leave our camper there for storage. The grounds are always clean and well kept. The bathrooms are spotless as well as the laundry facilities. I highly recommend camping at Big Meadow. I recommend the concrete sites for long term or in rainy weather.

Room Tip: quite recommend concrete sites

One of the most immaculate campgrounds we have ever visited! Easy check in and extremely friendly and helpful owners. Yes there are rules but the owners work hard to keep a clean and comfortable campground. We travel in a 36' 5th wheel. We were in a site that required us to back in....no problem. Some sites are pull through. We had plenty of privacy and did not think the sites were unusually close. We have been in much tighter. We will visit this campground again.

We have camped in many campgrounds. This is by far the very best. Malcolm and Barbara were very friendly as was everyone. Had plenty of suggestions for things to do and places to eat. Make sure you have lunch at Elvira's.
Everything was clean, grounds well kept. Nice playground and splash pad. The way the pads are laid out makes each pad private, no looking into your neighbor's living room from yours. Plenty of room for opposing slides.with slides out we are 18 feet wide.

This is a nice campground, however we probably won't be back for a few simple reasons. First and foremost, the riverside sites are on a road, not the river. This road is traveled by locals and most of them drive very fast. There are 2 man showers and bathrooms as well as 2 women showers and bathrooms that cover the entire campground. This is not sufficient for the number of campers when the park is full. The toilets stayed dirty a majority of the time. When the campground is full extra time should be taken by the staff to ensure restrooms are clean and supplied. The "really nice" dog park, as it was put to me, consisted of a tire partially buried in the ground and dog poop everywhere. Although the dog poop wasn't directly a staff problem, daily scooping should take place to ensure a clean dog park. The good about the park is that it is right next to the tubing activities. Close access to Wears Valley Road. Plenty of things for the kids to do. The staff was all hands on deck while camper were checking in and were very accommodating when helping campers to the site. There were more good things about the campground than bad but we probably won't be back.
