It was like a dream! The campsite location has a beautiful view of the mountains. It was beautiful seeing the sun come up and shine down on the mountains. So amazing to see houses nestled into the side of mountains. Pretty easy to get to. There wasn’t snow, so we made it up the drive in a Mazda, but 4 wheel is def needed in snow season

Absolutely gorgeous spot- even after seeing photos, I wasn’t prepared. Stayed with two friends and our pups and we all had an amazing time.
Had strong service, but google maps does not know the area and we found the reviews to be more helpful than the map with directions.

What an amazing view! The campsite was a little tricky to find. But there was plenty of flat space. A nice fire ring and of course the view! Would highly recommend this site for anyone looking for a nice peaceful campsite with an amazing view!

I can’t even begin to describe how beautiful the view was! We hiked nearby all day Saturday, and got to our camp with enough time to relax and enjoy the UNREAL sunset!
There is plenty of space to park and choose your camping spot. Lots of logs to sit on, and a nicely placed and well kept fire ring made of rocks.
There is also a bucket with a privacy curtain for using the restroom, with plenty of mulch for compost.
We had a little trouble with directions, but once we found the spot, it was picturesque and just what we needed. Will definitely be back to camp here again!

This campsite offers an amazing Western view of the Smokie Mountains, a comfortable campground, a friendly host, and a wide open sky for star gazing. We would definitely come back.

There are three sites next to each other, Songbird on the lowest part, the owners camper on a middle level, and a tipi on the highest level. You cannot see the other campsites from each location, but they are stone's throw from each other. Despite the closeness, you'll definitely feel isolated!

Negatives: You will need a 4WD vehicle to get to the campsite. We made it in the rain at night with a 2006 Toyota 4Runner. The directions are bare minimum, but accurate. We tried to visit the waterfall, but couldn't find the trail once we made the drive there. The campsites were clearly dug into the side of the mountain, so if you're looking for super natural, this isn't it. HOWEVER, we love backwoods camping and found the campground to be backwoods enough for a great weekend experience.

Had a great time at Indigo Eagle. The journey up the mountain isnt bad. You are pretty secluded except for the traffic of those on the mountain. The only problem was the porta john was completely full and not usable.

Epic clear sweeping view of the mountains. Caught sunset and it seemed I was looking down on it. Then the stars showed up for spectacular viewing. The mountain road ramble was rugged going down to the creek and waterfall. I would recommend 4wd

While indigo eagle does have some good offerings, this campsite is a construction site with rusty nails. While the views from the site are good, the actual site is less than ideal. I believe the listing is being falsely represented through the pictures.
