Located in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Balsam Mountain campground is a 9 mile drive up off the Blue Ridge Parkway. The road climbs from Rt 19 in Maggie Valley about 2500 feet of elevation on a beautifully paved two lane road with plenty of turnouts to view the mountains and valleys. In the spring and early summer, the road is lined with wildflowers, and flowering trees. There are many places to stop and hike short and longer trails into the woods and underbrush.
