      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.

By the time we got up to the top it was dark so didn't see the view so much and it was cold up there. There was a ice skating rink inside and some shops etc. Was a nice trip but if you go try goin when its not so crowded and start ...

On the second day we visited Dollywood, which was great! The weather was not the best but we decided to put up with it and it turned out being the right decision as we practically had the entire park to ourselves. The longest line we had to stand in was ...

The fried pickles were also a hit and were washed down with some local brews * Frothy Monkey - Coffee and Beer joint. Rumor has it, it's Taylor Swifts hangout. Great place to rest your feet for a few and get some caffeine in you before you go honkeytonking (yes, that is what they call it when you hit the downtown Broadway bars). * The Hop ...

      ... 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.
