“Peace and quiet with excellent hiking in the vicinity”

Reviewed Apr 16, 2018

Overall Rating

Our visit in April 2018 coincided with some great weather and also a forecast for rain and snow, so we were able to see just how quickly the campground fills up in good weather and vacates in bad weather. We loved the mostly-empty campground but found the site separation and privacy to be acceptable even when the campground was busier.... more

“Excellent no frills unplugged camping”

Reviewed Apr 14, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed 3 nights at site A13, the perfect site - large level site, maximum tree privacy, right next to a branch of the creek which provides the soothing water sounds. It does lie adjacent to the tent section, but we were there in the off season with no tenters. The campground itself is great - a couple basic flush toilets and a shel... more

“Amazing nature experience!”

Reviewed Sep 28, 2017

Overall Rating

We loved Elkmont. Tall trees, quite forest, amazing bike and hiking trails. Streams throughout and wonderful scenic drives. No internet whatsoever, however, if you go to the overlooks, you can get cell service/data. Campground is well kept, no showers, but clean-ish restrooms. Leaf blower woke us up almost every morning though. T... more

“Pristine but Crowded National Park Campground”

Reviewed Jun 22, 2016

Overall Rating

We have stayed in this campground on numerous occasions. There are no hookups but the sites are mostly shaded. The best sites are along the Little River which meanders through the campground. The campground is a pleasant oasis from the crowds that can swell at Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The closest town is Gatlinburg if you mu... more

“Great location to explore GSM National Park”

Reviewed May 21, 2016

Overall Rating

Rustic campground with no hookups and dump station 6 miles up the road at the visitors center (tho it's one of the prettiest dump stations you'll ever see!). We didn't snag one of the really pretty sites on the creek, but opted for another with some limited solar. Just 5 mins up the road from the popular Laurel Falls hike, and whil... more

“Great riverside spot”

Reviewed Jun 10, 2015

Overall Rating

We stayed to see the annual synchronous fireflies and couldn't have been happier. Well, maybe if our neighbors hadn't run their generator for the full 12 allowed hours, but all you had to do was step down to the creek and sit in your hammock and all other noises faded away. The sites were clean and easy to access, although primit... more
