2 Reviews of Smokey Mountain Campground
Not really a remote back country campsite

We where on Fontana lake at site #86 was my first time there and it was supposed to be a remote area primitive camp site. What we found was a huge area with 6 or 7 big group camp areas. The rangers had also built a house back there and ferried in vehicles and four wheelers. Then we found out they run a ferry service back there dropping people off and picking them up several times a day.

First to Review
Next to the Smokey Mountain National Park

The campsite was just outside of a cute town with restaurants and shopping. The campground has a well stocked store with a great selection of ice cream. The owner and staff were friendly and helpful. The also had tubes for rent. This was a great area for tubing down the river which our RV back up to. They had several bath houses and they were clean.

if you camp here make sure you get a spot on the river. Other spots didn’t have much of a view.
