Vintage Camper Spring Rally in the Smokies 2014 May 16th and 17th, 2014
The weekend after Mother Day.
Vintage Camper Fall Rally in the Smokies 2014
Sept. 5th and 6th, 2014
The same weekend as the Shades of the Past car show in Pigeon Forge.
Come join in all of the fun.
The reason Misty River Campground host vintage campers is because we think vintage campers and the people who loves vintage campers are fun to be around.
The vintage rallies at Misty River Campground are not associated with any club or associations. You don’t have to worry about having to join a club for our vintage rallies or have to go to any meetings or pay dues or serve on a board or anything like that. All you are required to do is to have FUN! If your club would like to attend, you are more than welcome to come join us.
Misty River Campground started hosting vintage camper rallies years ago and this will be our 11th vintage rally!
The Spring Camper Rally in the Smokies 2014 will be held May 16 and May 17, 2014. It will always be held the weekend after Mother’s Day each year.
Vintage Camper Fall Rally in the Smokies 2014 will be held Sept. 5 and 6, 2014 and will always be held the same weekend as the Shades of the Past car show in Pigeon Forge.
We have had lots of great looking vintage campers of all shapes and sizes at our Vintage Camper Rally in the Smokies. Anything from an 8 foot tear drop to a 35’ bus. You can not believe what a good time we have at the rally's. What makes this event so impressive is all the great campers who took time out of their lives to attend. You will never meet a more fun loving and friendly group of campers than the ones who attend this event. This event will fill up fast, so book your site early.
We have set aside 35 sites for vintage campers for the rally. To get the rally discount and to be on one of the 35 sites you must have a vintage camper. If your friend is coming to camp with you, and only one of you has a vintage camper, we can only put the vintage camper inside of the vintage camping area. If you do want to camp together, we can still keep you together in a different area of the campground.
As much as we are going to try to have all the vintage campers in the same area, we do have some regular vintage campers that camp with us all year long and want to be on a certain site outside the vintage area. As always, we like to do what we can to make the customer happy and we are going to put them on the site that they want if we can. So you may find a vintage camper outside the vintage area also.
When started the Vintage Camper Rally in the Smokies, there was no other events in our area. Now days we have fishing tournaments, Scottish Highland Games, car shows and many other fun events the same weekend. So this will be a sold out weekend at most of the campgrounds in our area.
Each year someone cancels at the last minute for many good reasons. As a campground we do need to try to keep our sites full and if we end up with an empty site in the vintage area on Friday, we will not turn away a big white box camper if we have a site available for them. We will be happy to offer the site first to the any of the vintage campers at the campground that may want to move. If no one wants to move to it, we will open the campsite up to regular campers.
The Vintage Rally in the Smokies is open to anyone who likes Vintage Campers, Can Hams, Tear Drops and all the other great cool campers that are out there. You do know that one day even your new RV will become a vintage camper. So come join in the fun!

Friday: Most of the vintage campers arrive today. This is a great day to walk around the park, get the low down on how to do some new things to your trailer, hang out with old and new friends, do a little sight seeing, shopping, hiking or just relax! We will have a marshmallow roast at the big fire ring around sunset. I will bring the marshmallows and you bring the stick.
Saturday: This is The Big Day! After having your morning coffee, everyone will get ready for the Big Open House and Swap Meet. This event is the best part of the whole rally. We will invite the public, vintage camper owners and those who want to be, the Press and everyone else to come on down and visit with us from 1:00pm till 3:00pm only!
We will also hold a swap meet at the same time, so you can all drag out all of those great collectables and vintage trailer related items to sell at your site.
The Pot luck dinner in the club house is at 6pm for all the vintage campers attending the rally. Misty River Campground will fire up the smoker and supply mouth watering Pork BBQ, you get to bring something else.
It has been a great weekend but it is now time for us to start packing it in for the drive home.
With so many great things to do and see in our area, we do not over plan this event so you can have some free time to enjoy our area and spend time with the people that you enjoy seeing every year.
As you know some campgrounds don’t like vintage campers and only want RVs that are less than 10 years old.
Here at MistyRiver we LOVE vintage campers. Just look… we have one of the original RVs stop and spend the night with us. They are on the way to North Carolina and just spent one night with us.
