The wife and I took the dog and her new pop-up and we thought the camp site was awesome. It was very friendly, clean, and quite. Nice tall trees and despite it being 90 degrees out of the site, it was very comfortable.

This is our regular getaway. We hike and bike and visit in all seasons. I wish we had bathrooms open even in winter. Beautiful and you never know what you will see.

We had a great time on motorcycle traveling on the parkway from Townsend to Cherokee. We viewed black bears close to the road along with several deer. Best time to travel is early in the day since it is a popular place.
