The Great Outdoors RV Resort is Primo!!! The Great Outdoors RV Resort was primo! We are new to RV Camping and the staff was welcoming and very helpful in helping us back our teardrop up onto the site. Exceptionally clean bathrooms and grounds Incredible wifi, never had a problem connecting and never slow. If you are working from the road, this place is perfect!!! Friendly staff and visitors Oddly enough… there were very few bugs in general and we didn’t get one mosquito bite. Interesting layout of campground Well manicured sites with keeping a woodsy and camp-like feel. A lot to offer in terms of amenities Private bathroom with showers Big and clean laundry room Workout room with up to date equipment and nicely maintained clubhouse with two kitchens A stage in the clubhouse and one outside for entertainment Full hookups including cable Trash pickup daily, at site. Well maintained pool Live music!!! Area: Franklin is a quaint town with shops, restaurants, cafes and live music. We loved the Rathskeller Coffee House!!

This place is immaculate. Literally the nicest campground we have ever been to. The couple who run it are exceptionally nice and helpful. The area is gorgeous. If you like rocks and crystals definitely go to this area and check out Cherokee Ruby Mine in Franklin. There is a huge grocery store just a few miles up the road and some restaurants.

Great Resort in a Great Location This is an excellent RV Park. We camped in a 40-foot fifth wheel. We would fit on most sites at this park. We have stayed at this park several times in the past and loved it. Everything is squeaky clean and well maintained. We observed a couple of things on this trip. The road noise from the main highway going through the area is excessive and takes away from the peacefulness of the park. The Cable Television service to the RV sites is the worst I have experienced. Although the brochure provided at check in lists many TV stations, most of the stations were of very poor quality. We could not receive any of the main network television stations. Some stations had no audio. Additionally, they say "no streaming" on their internet although they are not providing useable cable TV. Very disappointing that at resort like this does not have a decent internet system or cable television system. I reported the problems with the cable TV but the staff seemed disinterested. They really need to fix their technology-based systems. Also, there is a nice pool, but it is not heated. Few people will want to get in 74-degree water.
