Outdoor Adventures In Tennessee's Great Smoky Mountains

Gatlinburg, Tennessee has become the backbone of Tennessee’s tourist industry, thanks in large part to its location – nestled right in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountain Range.  An array of activities are available for guests and visitors, from horseback riding to whitewater rafting, golfing, and nature trail hiking. 


Camping In The Great Smoky Mountains

The three best-known local campgrounds in Gatlinburg to choose from are: Twin Creek RV Resort, Camping In The Smokies, and LeConte Vista RV Resort & Campground. Amenities such as electricity, water, cable TV, hot showers, and pools provide comfort, convenience, and variety to campers and vacationers. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park has several campgrounds, including Cosby and Elkmont, where visitors looking for a more “authentic” camping experience can pitch a tent and “rough it” in the wilderness. Although some campgrounds accept reservations, most are accessible during the spring, summer, and fall months on a first come, first served basis.
