Climb to the summit of Mount Le Conte to take in the panoramic views across the region and delve into the region’s industrial heritage while touring the historic buildings at Cades Cove.Adjacent to the Smoky Mountains National Park is the Nantahala National Forest. Its name translates from Cherokee as the “Land of the Noonday Sun.” There are several wilderness areas to explore and a whole host of recreational opportunities that range from hiking and mountain biking to fishing in the waters of Balsam Lake. Highlights include the 6,000-acre old-growth forest of the Joyce Kilmer Wilderness and the Mountain Waters Scenic Byway, which offers impressive views of Cullasaja Falls.Drive in the other direction from the Moonshine Creek Campground, and you’ll arrive at the Mountain Bridge Wilderness Area, which lies just across the border in South Carolina.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


How does check-in work?


Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
