Beautiful campground close to Gatlinburg. A bit removed but very nice and what camping is or at least should be (in my opinion) all about. The 11-mile loop road around the campground is beautiful. Great place to see a wide variety of wildlife including bear and hundreds of deer. Elevation is low so it can get hot in the Summer but it is the perfect destination in Spring and Fall. Great in campground store and you can also rent bikes. Get's extremely crowded on some weekends. Best to visit during the week so the loop road is not so crowded. One of my all time favorite campgrounds.

Very nice campground, as with all the campgrounds inside the National Park there are no hookups at the sites, a dump station and water is located in the campground. No showers but flush toilets are located in each section of the campground. This campground is one of two in the park that remains open all year and is not used much during the off season but during the spring to fall seasons you will most likely need a reservation several months in advance. One of the biggest attractions to this campground is that it is located at the beginning and end of a 11 mile auto/bicycle loop that tours Cades Cove, a must see if you visit the smokies and enjoy great views and wildlife. This campground is located about 7 milse from the main entrance to the National park and is a good base camp for touring the mountian. For those who like to eat at restruants, the community of Townsend is also located near the entrance of the part. If you elect to cook at the campground, you must keep your food in you car or TV as this is located in a area that may have visits from brown bears. you would be considered luch if you should see a bear, but they can visit if they smell food. Campgound is used by tenters and Motorhomes as well. If campground has hookups it would be a 5.
