How would you like to spend time in the Smokey Mountains breathing in nature at Pigeon River Campgrounds, where the adventure begins? Here, living is easy among the trees in a private setting with modern facilities and RV hookups to electricity (20/30/50), water, and sewer. Access to the internet is available at the camp pavilion so you can stay online even in the Smokies.
Roads and sites are gravel with grass all around and an uneven surface for tents and RVs. All campsites have a picnic table and fire-ring for cooking outdoors. Tenters can choose to camp out in the open or sleep among the trees.
If your preference is a cozy cabin, you’ll find fully furnished, rustic retreats at the campground fitted out with a microwave and fridge and a relaxing porch view of Pigeon River. Spend leisurely hours soaking up the serenity while fishing for bass on the river bank or go white water rafting with friends.
Restrooms and showers are modern and clean with a large, heated swimming pool and general store. Camp activities include volleyball and horseshoes although extreme adventurers will be looking to challenge the hiking trails in the nearby Great Smokey’s National Park.
Go zip-lining through the Smokies for a unique adrenaline rush or mountain bike on exciting, pre-ordained trails. The beauty of staying at Pigeon River Campground is you're a stone’s throw away from all the outdoor fun. You can relax by the pool or be inspired to try horseback riding through the scenic mountains.
It's good to know that dogs are allowed and it's important all owners keep them on a leash measuring six feet or less and clean up their waste. Pooches are not allowed on the Smokey Mountain trails where wildlife roams freely, but they do have access to areas of the Cherokee National Forest. Dogs are not permitted in the camp buildings or rental cabins.
A little over twenty miles away is Gatlinburg, the entry-way to the Smokey Mountains and a town buzzing with family things to do. Kids will be amazed at sea-life swimming overhead in Ripleys Aquarium of the Smokey while feeling on top of the world during the sky lift ride to Annakeesta theme park.
