Tiny Houses, RVs, and ‘Glamping’ at Ridge Outdoor Resort

There is a new place to stay overnight in Sevierville with ‘tiny houses’ and RV sites. Soon, there will be ‘glamping’ Safari tents too. Come along and take a quick look at the Ridge Outdoor Resort on Middle Creek Rd, across the street from Sweet Frog Yogurt and Smoky Mountain Espresso.

This property once was a church, then it belonged to the Holston Methodist Conference.

You may recognize the building from those previous incarnations. It has since been purchased and quickly becoming a camping destination in Sevierville. The main building can be used for weddings, events, and fundraisers. Inside, one can also find a coffee shop and internet cafe. They are also planning a camping store and a fitness center.

Each RV spot has a nice set-up. I especially like the round fire bowls. Each RV site will have a picnic table, fire bowl, water, sewer, electric, cable and Ethernet.

The RV area is spacious and has a nice view of the mountains. It is only a small walk to the main building. A resort style swimming pool should be open by June 1st. It will be 116 feet long and will also have a swim shelf.

There is a playground for children to enjoy during their stay. A pickle ball area and a basketball court are also in the plans.

I was especially interested in the ‘tiny houses’ on the property.  I have seen them on HGTV and wanted to see one.

There was an ‘Open House’ on a Sunday so I was able to look around and take several photos. I can see how campers would enjoy sitting on the deck with such a view and a fire bowl.

Doors open wide to a mountain view. The owners’ dog was enjoying the afternoon sun.

Love the view!

The dog is posing pretty in the kitchen area.

This will be a nice view from the kitchen sink.

The bathroom is bright and convenient.

The bedroom did not feel tiny; rather, it felt compact and comfortable.

A flat screen TV is located at the end of the bed.

As I strolled back toward the front door, I noticed the nice little table for dining. I think that these tiny houses are manufactured by Clayton Homes. They are extremely nice!

You can see that the campground is located conveniently across the street from Sweet Frog Frozen Yogurt and Smoky Mountain Espresso Coffee. It is also in view of Middle Creek Road and the larger Veterans Boulevard, very close to Dollywood properties.

I can’t wait to visit again when they put up the ‘glamping’ (glamorous camping) tents soon. The ‘safari tents’ may be ready by July. They are waiting for the orders to arrive from Norway. That is going to be fun!

It is getting even more fun to camp in Sevierville.
