Elkmont Campground is the largest and busiest campground in Great Smoky Mountains National Park and is only 8 miles from Gatlinburg, TN. The campground is at an elevation of 2,150 feet and offers campsites by the Little River and Jakes Creek.

Trailheads for Little River Trail, Jakes Creek Trail, and Elkmont Nature Trail are located adjacent to the campground.

Historic Elkmont is an attraction which features remnants of Little River Lumber Company’s logging camp and old buildings from the Elkmont resort community, offering a glimpse of life at Elkmont nearly a century ago.

Campers can experience high-quality backcountry fishing in the waters of the Little River and countless other streams and rivers that run through the mountains.

Elkmont Campground has 200 tent/RV campsites with paved driveways, gravel tent pads, fire rings, and picnic tables. Although most sites will accommodate tents or RVs, extreme slope or length of driveway make certain sites more suitable for tents than RVs.

In addition to these sites, Elkmont has 20 walk-in sites for tents. Campers on these beautiful wooded sites will have a short walk from their parking area to their tent pad.

Nine of Elkmont’s campsites are wheelchair accessible ADA sites. These sites have wide concrete driveways, raised fire rings, and wheelchair accessible picnic tables. All of these sites are located near accessible restrooms. Three of the sites provide 5 amp electrical service for medical equipment.

Restrooms at Elkmont Campground have flush toilets, cold running water, and utility sinks. Potable water is available at spigots near each restroom; use of hoses is not allowed. Elkmont Campground does not have electric, water, or sewer hook-ups. For RV campers there is a dump station across from Sugarlands Visitor Center. There is no dump station in the campground.

Elkmont is strictly an overnight campground; there are no day-use facilities. The nearest picnic area is Metcalf Bottoms Picnic Area, west of Elkmont on Little River Road.
