Can hike to watch tower but camping is closed
This campground is now closed.
The campground has been closed for the last few years. The views are great but the hike to the tower is very short. for some good bouldering walk past the tower through the wood to some fun small bluffs.

This place has so many gorgeous camping spits and hiking trails! In the fall there is just so many different hues of oranges reds and yellows
Simply beautiful! Amazing look out views! Can't wait to return.
A smaller and less popular site in GSMNP, so it's quieter. Great birding right by my tent! Nice clean site with the expected simple amenities from NPS. Lovely wooded sites. Lots of views and hiking really close.
Great place for views and not too over crowded. Can be secluded and awesome date place. Temperature fluctuations can happen throughout the day by 20° or more. Storms czn pop up and bring heavy rain and wind to this area so be prepared. Sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking from this area.
If you haven't visited the Smokies, then do yourself a favor and book a trip. The mountains are gorgeous, and the temperature is usually JUUUUST right in the fall.
If you go before Thanksgiving, the traffic in the area isn't too bad.
