Woke up to a delicious breakfast of ham and cheese omelets by Chef Marcus, who don't need no spatula to flip some eggs.
We broke camp leisurely and headed south ...
After DC we hired a car from Knoxville and headed to the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. We stayed in a town called Gatlinburg and the only way I can describe it so that everyone understands.... It's like being at Disneyland without the rides but all the attractions and fast food restaurants that you could think of. It had so many mini golf places, Ripley's believe it or not attractions, cars from movies, old fashion ...
... on a twisty trail covered in rocks and roots in the dark surrounded by dewy branches that you don’t want brushing up on your nice, dry night clothes? So, with some trepidation, I turned around and walked about twenty paces back up the trail toward the shelter. Standing about as close as I could get to the shelter without being visible by somebody (as if anyone was up and looking), I stopped. I checked behind me. Nothing. No animals. No noises. I decided it was safe and did ...
... take a fake shower near the top.
This one was still a little of a climb but much less torturous. There were tons of people at the top waiting for their Kodak moment behind the falls so we joined the queue. Got our romantic snaps and Chris got a quick head cool off.
Then we descended a steep bit near the river/falls and dipped our bods. Chris made a ...
First night of camping in a National Park complete, we got up early to find out what we would be doing today. For the next few weeks we have handed all the planning over to Marc and Louise and basically hijacked their vacation. Marc informed us that today we would be hiking to a waterfall "Ramsey's Cascade". Great i thought as me and Les have become expert hikers over the last 6 weeks (I just hope the Sach's can keep up with our pace!).

Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn & Suites Pigeon Forge On The Parkway
Super Hotel. Freundlich, höflich, heimisch
Kamen am 6 November als Reisegruppe der Central Baptist Church in Warner Robins, GA an. Hatten über die Steve-Ellis-Agency gebucht. Eine super Leistung. Kamen ca. 10 Stunden zu früh an und es stand gar nicht zu Debatte, durften sofort auf unsere Zimmer, wenn diese schon fertig waren. Tolle Leute. Jeder hat sich überaus bemüht, was unseren Aufenthalt um so besser gemacht hatte. Vielen Dank für den tollen Aufenthalt.
This was a great place to stay. Friendly, courteous, homely.
We arrived on November 6th as a group from Central Baptist Church in Warner Robins, GA. We were booked by the Steve Ellis Agency. They did a fabuluous job. We arrived about an hour early and there never was any discussion if the rooms were ready. What a great bunch of people. Each one went a little beyond what was expected to make our stay much better. I appreciate it personally and believe my entire group feels the same. Thanks for a great stay.
Hampton Inn Pigeon
The grounds for this hotel look great from the road. Rooms are okey but not what I find at other Hampton Inns. Lobby is very nice as is the breakfast. Our room had one of the older mattresses which was in need of upgrade. Hotel was fairly clean. Hotel staff was friendly. Parking is excellant.
Not quality of most Hamptons
I have traveled for ten years. I always choose Hampton because of the high quality. This Inn does not rate up with other Hamptons. The carpets in the halls are dirty. The entry areas for the rooms were not clean. The rooms are clean but need updating. The furniture looks like a Holiday Inn.
The pool area looks old.
If you're a Hampton lover of the very high standards you will not love this one. I was disappointed because the lobby and eating area was great but not the sleeping areas. That's the old bait and switch tatic of hotels.
Although this may be one of the "cleaner" properties in Pigeon
You won't be disappointed
Hampton Inn River Road in Pigeon Forge was near the show we wanted to see. We have never had a bad experience with Hampton Inns (we often stay at the one on the River in Pigeon Forge).
The Hotel has class. It's lobby is gleamingly clean, it's staff cordial and accommodating, and there is no parking problem. They have all the amenities you want in a higher end place...complimentary newspaper, nice (hot) breakfast, and the rooms are great. You have lots of plump pillows, extra fluffy, soft towels, beautiful decor, light, airy, ..and it is spotless. A sign on the front desk guarantees satisfaction or you don't pay! The price was actually cheaper than one of the mediocre hotels down the street. We'll be back!
Enjoyed our stay
Our family stayed at the Hampton Inn and Suites for our summer vacation. This was our first trip to Pigeon Forge and it was a wonderful experience. Hampton Inn has the best beds of any place we have ever stayed. Where can I buy a set of those wonderful pillows and duvet! The kids loved Dollywood and we enjoyed shoping at the Tanger Outlet next door. My thanks to the staff for helping with a tiny problem we had during our stay. They made us feel like we were staying with relatives. Thank you for a great time.
We were very pleased with our stay at this Hampton. I search for hotels on a pet-friendly site, then read reviews before booking rooms.
Had a Fantastic Time
We stayed at this Hampton Inn during the week of July 4th. The room was wonderful. The beds were very comfotable and clean. Very quite surroundings. The Inn was within walking distance of most of the attractions in Pigeon Forge. The breakfast was wonderful! Great service!
We stayed at the Hampton Inn and Suites in Pigeon Forge as part as a Time Share attraction. The hotel was centrally located in PIgeon Forge and all attractions were easily accessible. The pool area and hot ub were clean and the staff were over all very friendly. If you are looking for 1st class accomodations this is not the place but if you are looking for a clean, comfy and average amenities then this place is it.
