Great Smoky Mountains National Park

America’s most visited national park, and for good reason!

We came in last minute and the host and owner were able to accommodate us. Good space between campers. Very cute place. Super clean super quiet (except for some traffic) perfect spot to stop. Handy gas station / market walking distance.



Hidden Gem! Close to everything but feels private! Very clean!

This campground is one of the best hidden places to stay! Our friends from VA brought their trailer, we stayed in the Bootlegger cabin. Hadn’t ‘camped’ in years and have to say that the entire experience was wonderful! Cabin is beautiful (and super clean) inside, basically all brand new with all you’ll need to enjoy the area and River just steps away. Camp Host was welcoming and around if needed. Store and pavilion are well thought through and adds to ease and joy of being tucked away down from all there is to offer just a short drive away.!
