The Great Outdoors

Encompassing over 520,000 acres, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is one of the largest parks on the east coast. Although the park gets around 11 million visitors annually, due to its sheer size, it’s quite easy to achieve a sense of remoteness and solitude, particularly if one veers off the beaten track. There are several hundred miles of hiking trails, not including the Appalachian Trail, which cuts through this park on its very long journey from Maine to Georgia. Some of these trails are shared with horseback riders, though there are trails that are strictly for horses only. All put together; equine riders have over 500 miles of trails to explore on their steeds. Though bikers are welcomed in this park, there are no trails open to mountain biking. All bicyclists must share the roads with vehicles, though there is one road in an area called Cades Cove, which is closed to vehicles.There are hundreds of brooks, streams, ponds, and small lakes scattered around Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and depending on which waterway a fisherman chooses to ply their trade, catches range from smallmouth and rock bass, rainbow, brook, and brown trout, chain pickerel, and catfish. Accompanying these creeks and brooks is the pleasant background of gushing waterfalls. There are dozens of named waterfalls, many of which are accessible from the road or with a short hike.On a quiet morning, it can seem like wildlife outnumber humans. The habitats are especially robust, hosting a wide variety of critters, including white-tailed deer, elk, black bears, raccoons, turkeys, coyotes, and more.The high, rugged cliffs and crags are popular with rock climbers. It’s not uncommon to spot a climber clad in colorful garbs slowly inching their way across a sheer rock slab, somehow finding handholds where there are none.Opportunities for recreational fun abounds both above and below. Tuckaleechee Caverns is one of the largest cavern systems on the east coast. In addition to unique rock formations made by millions of years of calcite-laden water dripping steadily, there are underground rivers with blind fish that live nowhere else in the world and a small underground waterfall. Visitors should come prepared with sweaters, closed-toe shoes, and enthusiasm. Heads up: this cavern system is not wheelchair and stroller accessible, and the steep paths may be challenging for people with physical conditions.

Exploring the Area

Although RV camping near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a major draw for many, there are several other attractions in the area that may be worth exploring. Pigeon Forge, which has strong associations with famous singer and actress Dolly Parton has a couple of museums highlighting her history. The town also is the site of the Titanic Museum, which has several genuine artifacts recovered from the doomed ship.Ripley’s Aquarium in Gatlinburg was voted the best aquarium in the country. Its tanks are host to a wide array of aquatic and marine life, including sharks, rays, and penguins. Visitors can opt for unique experience encounters like swimming with stingrays, hands-on experience with penguins, and behind-the-scenes tours of the facility. Ripley’s Aquarium also holds sensory-friendly nights, designed to accommodate children and individuals with specific needs.Hop into a rental airstream and hit the road on one of the scenic byways. Explore the twisting mountain roads that rise and fall at a gentle rate, rewarding people with beautiful, constantly changing scenery.Rent an RV to embark on a camping trip of a lifetime and make new memories when you head out on your perfect RV camping adventure in Tennessee.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

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.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

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.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

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.
