There’s no better bonding activity than spending a weekend ‘roughing it’ with your family at Tennessee’s best Smoky Mountain campground! Whether you camp in a tent, cabin or RV, you’ll have a blast spending quality time with your favorite people building campfires, telling ghost stories and laughing away the stress of life!

1. Tent CampingTent pitched at our Smoky Mountain campground.

The most classic camping experience of them all is sleeping in a tent under the stars. Our campground has 17 campsites available for renting, and we also have group tent pads available to rent. When you choose to spend a long weekend camping in a tent with your family, you’ll experience the beauty of the Smokies in a way you’ve never experienced before. You’ll feel close to nature when you sleep in the woods like the local critters, and you’ll wake up feeling refreshed because of the clean mountain air. Plus, you’ll be a short distance away from some wonderful area hiking trails. For a truly peaceful vacation, we highly recommend this type of camping experience.

2. RV Camping

Another way to enjoy the best Smoky Mountain campground is to book a few nights at our RV campsites! This is a great option for people who want to enjoy nature but also want the comfort of the indoors. Pack your RV with food to cook on the campfire or a grill and swimming suits to wear in the site’s swimming pool, and prepare for a weekend the whole family will enjoy! Our campsites also include a pavilion, wifi, private bathrooms, a convenience shop and water/sewer hookups for your RV! We’ve provided everything you’ll need. And when you are ready to enjoy some city life, our sites are conveniently located near both Pigeon Forge TN and Gatlinburg TN!
