      Cosby Campground in Great Smoky Mountains National Park is located on the northwest side of the park on the Tennessee side. There is a group campsite and over 150 individual campsites. A few of the sites takes reservations, but most are first-come first-served. Amenities include parking for 2 vehicles, a good size tent pad, fire ring, picnic table, restrooms with flush toilets and cold running water, and bear-proof dumpsters. The area is bear habitat, so all waste must be disposed of in the dumpsters and food must be kept in a closed car. The rangers strictly enforce this rule. You should also put anything else that might smell like food - deodorant, toothpaste, medicine, etc. - into your car. There are a couple trails that can be accessed from near the campground - the Low Gap Trail that leads to the Appalachian Trail, the Lower Mount Cammerer Trail, and the Gabes Mountain Trail that leads to Hen Wallow Falls. Just outside the campground is easy access to Cosby and Hartford, Tennessee. There are a limited number of gas stations and restaurants in the area as well as some attractions like whitewater and zip-lining.

      ... for Pigeon Forge / Gatlinburg, Tennessee. We had hoped to be able to make it in one go, but that was not to be. We had to overnight in the NW area of South Carolina and the following morning made the final road trek to Pigeon Forge.

      We were very fortunate that Vera's boss offered us his wood lodge in Pigeon Forge. It was a very cozy 2 bedroom lodge with a fire place and Jacuzzi on the screened in terrace.

      Met some people here at Cove Creek RV Resort who told us we needed to take a ride up to the Preserve Resort. It's some really beautiful cabins up on top of the mountain. Turning into the road going up it says must have snow tires or chains to access it during snowy weather.

      It was very steep climb goin up but the view and the cabins are beautiful.

      ... recommend this campground if coming to see Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.

      The camp ground is in wears valley with mountains pretty much surrounding the valley. It's secluded enough to relax but only 10 minutes from Pigeon Forge and about 20 minutes to Gatlinburg. Less than 30 minutes to Cades Cove.

      We will stay here again if we come up this way.
