Camping Policies | Other Campgrounds
The campground is open April 10 - October 31.
Campsites include a fire ring with cooking grill and a picnic table; tent sites include a tent pad. Reasonable generator use is allowed. Only 20 sites are available by reservation -- the remaining sites are available on a first come, first served basis. This is a nice campground that tends to be underutilized due to its distance from tourist attractions in the Gatlinburg area. If you're looking for a peaceful place to camp in the park, this is a great option, especially when the more popular campgrounds fill up on holiday weekends. There are great hiking and fishing opportunities in the area.
Convenience stores and fuel are available in Cosby; medical facilites are 19 miles away in Newport, TN.
