This one's for the hikers

You can access this campsite by various means, but do your research and save yourself as many steps, because make no mistake, this is a serious hiking trail (a mile to a mile and a half, depending on route) up to the Fire Tower. 

Part of the Appalachian Train, once you park your car or…

No vacancy! Sorta

Very beautiful place but slim pickings on the open spots. We found site 2 empty the only site not on the lake. Seems like people setup tents to hold sites and don’t return for days it was the week before Labor Day so maybe I’ll have better luck next time

Small but nice

Smaller KOA about a mile or so off interstate. Small road coming in, but our spot was “too big” for our 40’ towing with two pedestals on each end. Very nice hosts, very clean, small fishing pond, and great location to some attractions.

Great rustic camping by a creek

Wonderful dispersed camping site, up a winding mountain road. Each site is far enough from the next to give you a feeling of being alone, and includes a fire pit (with swing-out cooking grill), a picnic table, and a metal post with two hooks to hang gear on.

The mountain stream next to each site…

Great year round! Pack warm layers in winter.

There’s a little something for everyone here. Fishing in the lake, renting paddle boats, putt putt, short hikes, long hikes, MTB trails,… you name it! The area has had lots of bear sitings so keep that in mind. We had our marshmallows snatched right off of our picnic table 2ft behind us one night!!…

Small park, big sites

Camped with my daughter and our two dogs for 2 nights and really loved this park. We had a large, multilevel campsite that was just perfect for tent camping. Very woodsy and quaint but the rangers office had lots of small gear/tools in case you forgot something, ice, they are open 7 days 12-8pm and…

Good for a quick weekend

We went for a quick weekend away. The camp sites are too close for our liking. It feels like everyone is in your business here. I guess the positive for the proximity is access to bath houses. We just didn’t like how everyone can walk through your camp site.

Best campground in the Great Smoky Mountains NP

We camped in our multi-purpose enclosed trailer. We stayed in the ‘C-section’ which is generator free, so a bit quieter than the B-loop. We camped 3 nights and saw coyotes and deer in/around the campsite every day. The last day, Sunday morning, as we were packing up to leave, a mother bear and her…

Very nice campground

I would give it 5 stars if it had sewer connection on site. We stayed here 4 nights, and we loved it. The campground is not crowded, there is plenty of space between sites. Most of the sites back into a view of the water. Showers were clean and bathrooms as well. We will probably be coming back…

Ever Evolving Wonderland

Less than a mile from the heart of Helen, Georgia. This campground is a one woman show. Liz, the owner, has done it all and theres no sign of stopping her - to the cabins, the decor, and expanding campsites.

There are three cabins on this property that are fully set…

Right on the River

The campground is along the little River. The primitive campsites boarder the River and are easily accessed. We book on a slow day where there were only 2 tent campers along the run of primitive sites. The website shows all other spots vacant. Upon check-in we asked the lady at the office if we…

Scenic Site

Beautiful campground with great hiking and incredible views! West rim is more secluded and quiet but East Rim is more convenient access to the visitor center, trail head and other activities. Wonderful camping here… we can’t wait to go back.

Amazing Weekend Getaway

This is a great, cozy campground! Major canopy coverage provides shade and seclusion. Many great family activities available at the visitors center. These were the CLEANEST bathhouses I’ve been to in my life.

Beautiful location that needs better management

Beautiful grounds with a great wadding river, waterfalls, hiking, mountain views & fun little farm. Could be or maybe once was a great camping park, but it’s sorely lacking management, staff, repairs and cleanliness. We loved our stay and would go back. It’s a gem that just needs some…
