Best views on the east coast

Get ready to spend the days and nights with about a hundred other people! The hike up is about a mile but once you're finally up, you'll never want to go down.

About This Campground

View from Appalachian Trail on Big Firescald Knob

Most of the area is remote backcountry, including Bald Mountain Ridge Scenic Area and Sampson Mountain Wilderness.  Roads are limited, but forty-plus miles of trail access the forest.

The area is known for its diverse populations of wildflowers and a number of waterfalls, including 60-foot fan-shaped Margarette Falls and Sill Branch Falls.  Try fishing Nolichucky River, Horse Creek, Dry Creek and Clark Creek.  Horse Creek and Old Forge Recreation areas offer picnicking, water play and camping.
