“Beautiful, quiet and the ideal campground. ”

Overall Rating

Cosby is an absolute gem of a campground in the national park. It's the postcard campground for those that don't have to have hook ups. It's never busy, it's quiet, spacious sites and great hiking trails all around. It's the typical amenities for the park with shower less bath houses and water spigots along the road. We were there in the middle of summer and there were not many people camping. If you reserve online and it says no sites available, call the park. Most likely there are plenty of sites since only 28 I think it is are reservable online out of 165 sites.

There is a dump station that is easy access on the way in to stop and fill water tanks at. It's a little tricker turning into it when leaving and depending on your length you might want to plan on going through the parking lot and exiting out of it and across to the DS.

Access to the campground is easy from I-40 and it's paved two lane roads the entire way.
