“Beautiful campground but We Had Some Issues”

Reviewed Aug 09, 2018

Overall Rating

We only spent one night here and loved the campground. We ended up in 3 different sites due to the confusion imparted upon us by the staff. Our first site was right on the river and was truly stunning. It rained a ton up in the mountains and thus the river started rising. One ranger told us we could move and after we moved another ... more

“Excellent campground”

Reviewed Jul 19, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a great campground. Large sites, good shade and a wonderful river running through the campground. Tempature was bearable at night even in July.

Great location in the National Park to base yourself out of.

“Peaceful overnight spot”

Reviewed May 20, 2018

We were only here one night while traveling to Maine, arrived on a Saturday afternoon and the "D" loop only had a few campers so it was very peaceful. Older park with narrow roads but layout and access to sites is easy, bigger rigs would have difficulty, website says 40' max. Our site was a small drive-thru which was level and had a p... more

“Beautiful relaxing campground ”

Reviewed Jan 07, 2018

Overall Rating

Well maintained and a great campground. Easy access and level sites. Great hiking trails leave from the campground as well.

If you visit in the off season with a bigger rig you may have challenges with having a big enough site in the only section open though.

“Generator noise ruins what could be a pleasant campground ”

Reviewed Dec 23, 2017

Overall Rating

Smokemont is a large campground located within the Smoky Mountain NP which makes it pretty and convenient for sightseeing in the park and surrounding areas. We stayed in the camper loop where sites have a little more space in between but there isn’t much undergrowth so privacy is still lacking. Other sections and creekside spots are e... more

“Beautiful, spacious, wooded campground in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park – only ding is the lack of showers in a campground with no hook-ups. Oh, and no cell service either.”

Reviewed Oct 27, 2016

Overall Rating

We loved this campground – it is just beautiful. The sites are large and well-spaced, with lots of mature trees (don’t count on solar here). In some areas there is vegetation between sites for privacy. We stayed in the RV-only F-Loop, but there were many large pull throughs in the D-Loop that would have accommodated any sized rig. Our ... more

“Nice Setting In The Smoky Mountains”

Reviewed Aug 28, 2016

Overall Rating

I really enjoyed camping here. I wish I could have stayed longer. The weather in mid August was very pleasant, and I was amazed that the only bugs that were a minor nuisance were gnats. I did not see one fly nor mosquito! There were not any campers on either side of me so I did have some privacy. On the early week nights that I stayed ... more

“Unpleasant staff and unkempt”

Reviewed Aug 12, 2015

Overall Rating

Last time I stayed at Smokemont was about 20 years ago and my experience was in complete contrast to my latest visit in July 2015. The facilities where in bad shape, unclean and neglected. No showers here, not that I would have used them if they had them based on the condition of the facilities they did have. The staff was overzealous ... more
