When the sun sets after another action-packed day in the Smokies, this doesn’t mean the fun has to stop! In fact, the evening hours are often some of the most memorable times when you stay at our campground! After cooking up a delicious dinner on the grill at your campsite, wind down in the evening with all types of fun activities. Here are just 4 fun activities to do at night at our campground in the Smoky Mountains:
1. Gaze at the Stars
One of the fun activities you can do at night at our campground in the Smoky Mountains is stargazing! Since we’re miles away from the closest city, there is no light pollution to affect the night sky, allowing you to see the stars sparkle as you never have before, so keep an eye out for shooting stars, constellations, and other celestial wonders! You can bring a star chart with you to help identify the popular constellations or try to find them on your own. Don’t forget to bring along a pair of binoculars too. You’ll be amazed at how the moon looks on a clear night!
2. Make S’mores
Lets face it, no trip to our campground in the Smoky Mountains is complete without making s’mores at night! This popular treat is a camping tradition, so bring along plenty of graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate bars for everyone in your group! If you happen to forget anything while packing for your trip, just stop by our convenient general store where you can pick up food items, camping supplies, and any other goodies you might need!
3. Tell Ghost Stories
After preparing your campfire for the evening, gather your family and friends around to tell ghost stories! After all, there is nothing like hearing a spooky ghost story as the fire crackles and darkness creeps over the Smokies! You can read up on some stories before your vacation or use your imagination to come up with some of your own! Of course, you don’t have to worry because there have never been any real ghosts spotted at our campground.
4. Share Laughs with Your Family and Friends
You don’t always have the time to simply relax with your family and friends, so take the opportunity to kick back around the campfire and socialize! In this era of modern technology, it is easy to be distracted by the temptation of cell phones, iPads, and other technology. Our campground in the Smoky Mountains allows you to disconnect from the rest of the world for a few days and focus on your time together as a family. Spend the evening laughing about a favorite memory or create some fantastic new memories while staying with us!
