Beautiful campground in the smoky mountains with lots of hiking to three waterfalls. The tent-only camping does not look like a lot of fun. You have to park your car in the lot and walk your gear to your pad. The pads are almost on top of each other with no trees or privacy to separate you. But you are right by the creek for a dip anytime. Book next to friends and it will be a good time.
The drive up camping is better, more private and wooded for hammocks and fun. My group all brought their own and HUGE tents. I’ve never seen 4 tents crowd onto one pad, but we did it. It was the only site available in Labor Day weekend and I snagged it. It was a great site too 44. Bathrooms were nice and clean, no showers. Hiking was great, didn’t see any wildlife. The creek is so refreshing.
