Beautiful park and very nice campground. We went here in mid October and it was wonderful for fall camping. As we have little kids we only hiked the short hike around the pond but it was a very nice one for us.
The actual camping area was nice and hilly and felt secluded and cozy. We were two families and had sited 19 and 20 and one was not too close to the road but nice and smooth and flat and the other was very nice and secluded but had too much of a slope. We ended up putting all the tents on one and sitting around the fire on the other. It worked out nicely for us but would have been problematic if we didn't have two sites.
Beautiful. We hiked up the paved path but took the AT and Clingman's dome bypass trail back to the parking lot. The hike back was awesome! I would absolutely recommend it to the crowded paved path although it took a while longer.
Fun even for little kids. A bit too shallow in some places. We got stuck a lot. All in all it was definitely one of the most fun things for everyone on our 10 day trip and I'd do it again.
Higher, faster, rougher and colder than we expected but a fun and exciting experience. Not for little kids. Make sure to wear shorts or pants. I wonder why they don't do tubes?
Fun and different. I was hoping for fresh veggies but they didn't have any. It was mostly dry food. Lots of good pantry things like flour, dried fruits and candies.
Wonderful, fresh and delicious food, nice place and friendly staff. A bit off from the touristy area and almost too quiet but worth going to.
We had a lot of fun with the kids climbing around and ringing the rocks. We only had one hammer but even using other rocks to knock with worked pretty well. It was a good stop on the way and the surroundings when we drove in were very nice.
