Smokemont


Smokemont was once a thriving lumber town with homes, businesses and a school.
When the logging camps in the Park played out people moved on and the area became a part of the National Park. Still remaining in the Smokemont area is Lufty Baptist Church and Bradley Cemetery. Smokemont once housed a logging mill, commissary, houses, a club house, and a hotel. Smokemont is now a campground maintained by the National Park Service.
