Smoky Mountain - Gatlinburg


Junior Member
Any recommendations for campgrounds in/around Smoky Mountains near Gatlinburg. We're hoping to find a campground that feels like we're in the mountains and not in an RV park, where we can hike from the campground. Of course, we'd life full hookups too. Any suggestions are very much appreciated. Thank you.

Our home in the SC foothills is just a short drive up into the Smoky Mountain area of NC & TN so we often travel up there. We park our trailer in one of the RV Parks/CGs in the Cherokee area. Our favorite is the Flaming Arrow CG in Cherokee. (By the way, there are no taxes for parking fees in NC campgrounds).

As you can see in the CG link its close to a lot of attractions including a full service grocery store.

From the CG itÂ’s a nice drive thru the Great Smoky Mountain National Park to either Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. The roads are in great condition with lots of pull-outs for the shutter bugs. Just before entering the Park there is a place to go onto the Blue Ridge Parkway for a nice drive up to its tallest point.

Here are a couple of pictures we took at the CG when last there.

I see this is a Passport America cg which means you can get a full hook up site for about $22 instead of $45. I have never camped near the National Park but it looks like a great destination.
