    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.

When I wasn't guiding and riding as a participant I got to goof off like standing up in the raft was we went through rapids in attempts not to fall, which I did not accomplish. I also boat hopped into another guides boat just to surprise them and make the slow parts of the river ...

    ... all had for one another strengthened in those moments. Lisa, Pastor’s wife, chose to use the word “friends” to describe what we mean to her. One of the messages Pastor had in church Sunday morning was for us to realize that we may impact someone’s life without even knowing it. In fact we may never know. Today we were impacting our own lives as well as the others around us. In the herb’s small group, we like to call that horizontal ...

    Waking up in our cabins, feeling blessed in the beauty of our stay, our journey has officially begun. As we took off over the mountain for 11am church service at Living Waters. Pastor Jack and the congregation welcomed us with open arms and a sense of peace and serenity took over the room. A very small space with chairs lined up in rows facing one another Pastor Jack touched ...
