Do you want to camp in an RV near Jonesborough, Tennessee? Woodsmoke Campground offers a shady natural setting just off Interstate 26. Only a short drive from Jonesborough, rustic towns, and several state parks, this RV park is a convenient place to base your outdoorsy vacation. Some of the highlights of the region, such as Cherokee National Forest, are just a stone’s throw away, and on-site, you can take advantage of the campground’s facilities.
The peaceful campsites at Woodsmoke Campground are equipped with full hookups (30 or 50 amps, water, sewer), and there is WiFi available throughout the park. Families can dine alfresco using the campground’s picnic tables or gather 'round the firepits for an evening campfire. Guests can purchase firewood on-site, and there’s a supermarket within two miles. Other facilities include a laundry room and a bathhouse.
For campers who like to keep active while camping with an RV, there’s a hiking trail that begins opposite the campground. Plus, there are opportunities for other recreational activities in the great outdoors less than ten miles away.
You can begin your RV rental vacation with a visit to Tennessee’s only national forest, Cherokee National Forest. Spanning across more than 600,000 acres and offering a plethora of recreational activities, this is a fantastic place for all the family. Choose from gentle nature trails and strenuous day hikes or pack your backpack for a multi-day trek. The forest is home to a 150-mile section of the Appalachian Trail and over 600 miles of non-motorized trails. Mountain biking and horseback riding are some of the most accessible activities on land, but the forest also provides opportunities for OHV driving and cross-country skiing.
On the water, visitors can go whitewater rafting, kayaking, or tubing. With hundreds of miles of waterways, the forest is also a hotspot for motorized boating, tubing, and swimming. Nature enthusiasts can spot many species of flora and fauna, and the Cherohala Skyway Scenic Byway boasts some of the best outlooks for bird spotters.
Next door to Cherokee National Forest is Roan Mountain State Park, one of the most impressive state parks in Tennessee. This 2,000-acre park is nestled at the foot of Mount Roan, offering challenging hiking trails, such as the Chestnut Ridge Trail, and spectacular views from Roan High Bluff. There are adventurous routes for mountain bikers, and a winding river provides a cooling place to dip your feet in the summertime. During the cooler months, the slopes of Mount Roan are swept with snow and draw the attention of Nordic skiers. Throughout the rest of the year, Roan Mountain State Park is teeming with wildlife. The park is home to white-tailed deer, black bears, and box turtles as well as 174 bird species. Bring your binoculars, and you can spot owls, hawks, woodpeckers, and many more.
Before you head back into town, make a visit to Warriors' Path State Park. Here you can learn about the significance of this historic trading path during the Cherokee War while enjoying the natural setting. Threaded with a 12-mile network of hiking and biking trails, the park is a great spot for land-based activities. For watersports lovers, the park provides canoe, kayak, and paddleboard rentals next to Patrick Henry Reservoir, along with two boat launch ramps. Visitors with a keen eye and plenty of patience can also spot around 120 species of birds throughout the migration season.

Inside, exhibitions rotate but often include Jonesborough’s photo collection, a diorama of the town in the 1850s, and information on the golden age of Chester Inn. Plus, you can step back into the 1800s by walking through the restored Victorian-style rooms and parlor.
