Quiet Spot on the Creek

We stayed here Memorial Day Weekend. This spot is a hidden gem on a busy mountain during a busy weekend. The campground is off the old road right after Smoky Bar, and is along Big Smoky Creek. All weekend the campground was quiet and still had plenty of sites left over. We drove down the road into Featherville and the whole place was packed. It was amazing our campground still had room. We stayed in Sites 4+5, we had plenty of room for a 21' trailer and a 32' motorhome in site 5 and 2 vehicles in site 4
