Year after year campers say the best place to camp is in the Great Smoky Mountains. Whether you wish to camp in your RV with all the amenities and hook ups including High Speed WIFI, electric, water and sewer, or rough it in the rugged wilderness in the most primitive conditions possible, you can find the just camping experience you are looking for in the Smokies of Tennessee or North Carolina.
Camping in the woods is good throughout the North Carolina and Tennessee Smokies
Camp in and around the Smoky Mountains National Park with either tents or your RVs
Most of those we surveyed told us that they considered the Great Smoky Mountains national park to be the best place to camp in the Smokies as long as you do not need electrical, water, or sewer hookups.
The Great Smoky Mountains national park has Frontcountry campgrounds, backcountry campsites and backcountry shelters throughout the national park. If that is not enough, you can even camp in the Great Smoky Mountains National park with your horse in one of the drive in campgrounds or if you wish camp with your horse in a backcountry camp site. Either way you and your horse will have the time of your life.
