Are you looking for an escape from the traditional vacation experience, so you can enjoy the simple life in the Smokies? At Pigeon River Campground, we invite you to take part in the simplicity of seeing the beauty of the mountains, pitching a tent (or choosing to stay in one of our cabins!) and sleeping under the stars for a few nights.

At the campground, we have 17 campsites available as well as 6 riverside camping cabins near the Smoky Mountains. Our tent pads are 12’ by 12’. Our riverside camping cabins sleep 5 guests in one double and three twin beds. Dogs are welcome at our campground, but a pet fee of $20 applies. There is a 2 dog limit.

We are located on the northeast side of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, so we’re only a couple of minutes from all of the beautiful hiking trails in the Great Smoky Mountains as well as Pisgah National Forest. If you’re traveling from Knoxville, TN or Asheville, NC, we’re only about an hour away from both locations. Our campground is away from the hustle and bustle of the city but close enough to get to Knoxville, Asheville, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville or Gatlinburg in an hour or less!

When you’re planning your Smoky Mountain camping trip, you should know we are easily accessible by I-40.

Want to get out and explore for a little while? We’re also only a short drive to all of the entertainment in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, for those days you want to see a show or visit some of the other area attractions.
