Gatlinburg's Top Three Campgrounds in Gatlinburg, TN


Although Gatlinburg has many fantastic hotels, inns, and resorts, sometimes it's refreshing to camp out during your vacation, and with so much Smoky Mountain scenery in Gatlinburg, camping proves to be a fantastic option in this area.

  • Frontcountry Camping — Located more in the front of the park, these developed campgrounds are close to the park's parking lots. All sites here are complete with picnic tables, fire grates, cold running water, and flush toilets. Some of the campgrounds within frontcountry camping allow RVs.

  • Group Camping — These larger campsites are perfect for groups of eight or more. These sites only permit tents and not RVs or trailers.

  • Horse Camps — At these campsites, campers are welcome to bring their horses. These sites have hitch racks, and auto-access sites have picnic tables, grills, and parking spaces. One of the campsites within the horse camps have flush toilets and cold running water, while the others have portable toilets and no running water.

This was more than wee expected. Without a doubt, one of the cleanliness places we have ever been. One of us was in a wheelchair and it was easy to get around in the buldings, as well as the grounds. This was a beautiful place to spend an entire day with family members of different ages.
