We love camping here! Jerry is a terrific host! We have camped here twice and both times were great! We love seeing the animals in the pasture and the wagon ride to the barn! My kids cry when it’s time to leave!

We spent 3 nights there and loved it all. We had a premium pull-through site and it was long and wide we felt like we had plenty of room. The Llama-mat (laundry) is brand new and a pleasure be in. The owners are installing a bathhouse in this building as well. We were fortunate enough to get an extremely educational tour of the farm and meet the llamas-my favorite part. We loved our stay and will return for a visit!

We just returned home from a stay at Lazy Llama Campground. The owners and staff were so very helpful and did everything they could so our visit was enjoyable. Beautiful campground, relaxing, and the llamas were amazing. Our granddaughter fell in love with Iceman! We met some very nice people while we were there. Thank you for everything!!

We stayed here over the 4th of July weekend at a pull thru site. The campground was immaculate. The campground owner Jerry was extremely nice and helpful. He took the time to show us the new bathhouse he was building and explained their future plans. Jerry also took several campers on a tour to meet the llamas up close and personal. What beautiful and fantastic animals. We absolutely enjoyed our stay here. I would give 10 stars if I could.

We had a great time at the Lazy Llama Campground. We really enjoyed the activities offered on site. The spinning class was very interesting. She is so talented and her gift shop was really cute. I purchased a beautiful embroderiey denim shirt with a llama on it. The hay ride through the property allowed you to get close up to the llamas. This was a great opportunity for pictures. The owners are really putting alot of love into this place. We will definitely be going back.

You could not find a more hospitable owner. The camping spaces were wide and easy to access and the campground is quite and well maintained. It is located in a great location to get to places in eastern TN. It is just a couple of minutes from historic Greeneville and Jonesborough (both downtowns are must visits), 1 hour from Gaitlinburg, 45 min to Bristol, just over an hour to Asheville, NC.

The campground is just outside of Greeneville, TN. Entry is a fairly steep gravel incline. Pull-thru sites are tiered and face the llamas in the field. FHU, fairly level gravel sites, WiFi was good and so was OTA TV. Water pressure is high so you will need a regulator. Jerry, the owner, and the campground hosts Bill and Kelly are great and will ensure that your stay is enjoyable. This is a fairly new campground and improvements are being done daily. Bath house and Landry being built now. Scenery is lovely and campground is peaceful and quiet. Highly recommend this campground and would definitely return. We camped at Lazy Llama Campground April 29 they May 3rd for our 14th anniversary in 42ft Fifth Wheel on site 31.Jackie and Debi

Absolutely loved our stay at the Lazy Llama Campground! The owners are super friendly and very attentive. We didn’t have a water pressure reducer and they let us borrow and now we know to add that to our camping supplies. The art class was spinning and my grandson and myself enjoyed very much! My only suggestion would be for the host camper’s Site to be marked just encase there was an emergent situation. But we will definitely comeback to this peaceful and well running campground!

The Lazy Llama campground is fantastically fun and interesting place to camp. Jerry and Carolyn are great hosts and asked several times if we were happy and having a good time. They directed us to several interesting places to go see and suggested other places to visit at a future date. The Llamas are the topping on a great cake.

Great cozy & quiet campground to stay at, sites were very nice and accommodating for larger rigs. The owner/host Jerry was an absolute pleasure to work with, couldn't ask for a better host! Wish we had more time to take advantage of all the activities they offer, but we'll try again next time.
