“On the Peaceful Side of the Smokies”
118 Stables Drive
Townsend, TN 37882
At first I was attracted to this campground because it was less than a mile from the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the closest private campground to my newest obsession, Cades Cove. I loved how having a home base here means that on a spur of the moment whim I can head out of the Tremont driveway, be in the national park in less than a 1/2 mile, arrive at Cades Cove loop in another 7 miles, drive through to see the sunset, and still be home before dark. Then I get home and the same sounds of the running water greets me when I get home and I get to listen to it all night from my bedroom window. This is Tennessee heaven, I swear.

Best amenity – the Little River runs alongside the campground in both Loop A and Loop B. Besides being great for relaxation and tubing, it is one of the top 100 trout streams in North America.

Malia’s 2 Cents: Besides the beauty of the park itself being enough to just enjoy staying put here, the best thing is its location “On the Peaceful Side of the Mountain.” This is definitely my preferred style of camping, especially for exploring the incomparable Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
