We arrived at Cades cove on Sunday afternoon, May 7. The gate house was closed but we were able to find a site and self register.
There are no hook ups. There is water at the dump station.
Most of the sites have been recently repaved with concrete and are nearly level. Some of the sites are short and would be tight for larger rigs. All sites have a picnic table and a fire ring.
The B loop of the campground was about half full. The C loop was nearly empty. Probably due to generator restrictions.
Reservations are not accepted until 5 15.
The road to Cades cove is narrow and winding. Be patient.

Cades Cove can get crowded in the summer, but this is one of the best places to see wildlife in the east. We saw half a dozen black bears and cubs, elk, deer and more.

There are no showers nor hookups here, but the facilities are well kept, the staff friendly and helpful and there is lots to see and do in the area. One of our favorites is tubing. Head towards Townsend and for not much money you can rent a tube and get free shuttles all day long to tube down the river.

No cell service.
