    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.

    ... fast food restaurants and others proclaiming to be the best In barbecuing. Think of that one section in Niagara Falls where families gather. Yep even here there was a Ripley's Believe it or Not and a wax museum. The town is hopping with families on spring break and you could hear the cash registers clinging away. Craziness. We also know that a lot of them are hikers, fishermen, photographers who will be embracing the mountains they see from this location in ...

    ... of the most beautiful views I've ever seen in my life. I usually start my day at around 6:30 so I'm able to see the sunrise everyday, and in the Smokies the sunrises are magnificent. Me and Stealth were able to make it through the Smokies in 4 days and we are on our way to Hot Springs, North Carolina. 275 miles down, a lot more to go. ...

    ... park is crossed by a number of paved roads, which make loop roads one of the most visited attractions. As of March a few of the park's attractions are still inaccessible, as the roads do not open until April. Still, most of the park is open and I was able to get a number of pictures from these loop roads. On the park's southern border runs the Blue Ridge Parkway, a very popular road for ...

    Menu Item: Ham & Hash brown Omelet

    Notes: Came with onions and 3 buttermilk pancakes also

    Comments: It was good but not as good as I hoped. There wasn't enough substance to the omelet. The pancakes were just average.

    Overall Impression: Below average omelet with average ...

    ... little something extra that you're always looking for in every meal. And what looks like a scoop of ice cream on the side (how glorious would that be) turns out to be enough butter to drive a Cadillac through a dog house.

    Overall Impression: Most amazing pancakes I've ate in my entire life. Wish I lived closer so I could partake more.
