As you walk down the main promenade, you’ll be sure to reach Dolly Parton’s Dollywood to your right, a Titanic museum to your left, an indoor snow park behind you, and endless shows and theaters all around you.

While I enjoyed my stay at the Camp Margaritaville outpost as a solo traveler, I think the property is better suited to families visiting Pigeon Forge, Tennessee by RV or car.
