Discover Camping In the Smokies


Looking to spend time in one of the United States' most visited vacation destinations, high up in the mountains of Tennessee? Camping in the Smokies lets you do exactly that. This amazing RV park outside of Gatlinburg is one of the area’s oldest, and an enchanting place to stay when exploring the wide-open swaths of wilderness in the Great Smoky Mountains. Camping in the Smokies is close to places like Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, two legendary sightseeing areas in the American South, and not far from the city of Knoxville to the north.

Camping in the Smokies campsites can accommodate tents and RVs. Cleanliness and privacy are important tenets of this family-friendly campground, so guests can expect spacious and quiet campsites during their stay. Restroom and shower facilities are also provided by the RV campground.

Camping in the Smokies is nestled along a mountain stream, just minutes from national parks and forests and the mountain town of Gatlinburg, where tons of exciting entertainment options await. But there is plenty to do within the campground too, like having a barbecue or swimming in the refreshing pool. Satellite TV, wireless internet, laundry facilities, a campground store, and a playground provide even more comforts and activities for people of all ages, and the Gatlinburg Trolley is a fun way to travel around town for some shopping and sightseeing.

The Great Outdoors

There are so many reasons to go camping at Camping in the Smokies, and it certainly doesn't hurt to have one of America’s most beloved national parks a few miles away. Consider checking out some of the smaller state parks in the vicinity while you're here, too. Seven Islands State Birding Park is a special place designated for birdwatching, with nearly 200 species of birds calling it home. This birdwatcher’s paradise alongside the French Broad River has more than just birds, though, with hiking trails, kayaking spots, fishing areas, and plenty of other woodland creatures to see.

Big Ridge State Park is a great place to spend a day, with recreational activities adjacent to Big Ridge Lake. Soaring eagles, massive trees, and spectacular landmarks dot this gorgeous state-run park, and there are a whole lot of ways to make use of your time there. Winding nature trails are a blast to hike or bike, and there is a large campground on-site, too. The park hosts a few fun events throughout the year, like an Easter Egg Hunt for children and a large Bluegrass Music Festival each August. Panther Creek State Park inhabits a slice of land next to the Cherokee Reservoir, with lovely beaches, swimming areas, hiking trails, camping areas, and more. Guests can do some birdwatching, fishing, horseback riding, cycling, hiking, and boating during their visit.

The biggest draw to the region is Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the country’s most popular national park by a long shot. Each year over eleven million people travel to the park to see the spellbinding views from high atop the ancient mountain peaks. Jaw-dropping foliage captures the hearts of park guests each fall, and stretches of the famous Appalachian Trail run through the park, making it a thru-hiker's dream. Nature centers, observation decks, and great campgrounds are part of what makes Great Smoky Mountain National Park so special, but there are lots of other ways to enjoy the great outdoors while you rent an RV near Camping in the Smokies.

City Sightseeing

You’ll have the pleasure of being close to both Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg when you stay at Camping in the Smokies.

Gatlinburg's Ripley’s Believe It or Not! is part of a national chain of bizarre museums where you can learn about the oddities and unexplained mysteries of the world. Tour aquariums with strange fish, see unique crystal formations, and learn about strange phenomena happening all around the globe at this one-of-a-kind place.

Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park & Ski Area can be visited any time throughout the year, with epic ski slopes in the wintertime for snowboarders and skiers to ride down, and a great indoor ice-skating rink. In the summertime, splash pads, waterslides, pools, and lazy rivers provide hours of endless entertainment for children and adults when the temperatures soar.

Over in Pigeon Forge is one of the biggest amusement parks in the world. Inspired and created by country superstar Dolly Parton, Dollywood is a legendary park with thrilling coasters, water parks, resorts, spas, restaurants, live concerts, and the Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame.
