TravelPod Member ReviewsElkmont Campground Gatlinburg
Elkmont Campground is located between Gatlinburg and Cades Cove on the Tennessee side of the park. As these are some of the busiest parts of the park, Elkmont provides an opportunity to be near both attractions while being slightly less crowded. The campground is in a beautiful setting with Little River running through it. Elkmont is also the largest campground with more than 200 sites, most of which can be reserved and about 20 first-come first-served. Amenities at the campground include tent pads, fire pits, flush toilets, cold running water, and bear-proof dumpsters. There are no showers or electrical hookups at this campground or any within the park, however. Remember that this is bear territory, so dispose of all trash properly and keep all food and similar items safely locked in the car. The rangers strictly enforce these rules. There is also a small store on site that sells ice, snack food, basic camping supplies, and firewood. The best amenity of this campground, however, is its central location. Close to Gatlinburg, Sugarlands, Newfound Gap Road, and Cades Cove, yet far enough away to forget about the traffic and crowds.

Nice day today. Headed off after lunch on hwy #276 to get onto & drive a loop of the Blueridge Parkway. Stopped at just about ...
