  1. Smokemont Campground is not in Tennessee. It’s in North Carolina. The map coming up on your website clearly shows this.

  2. Martha Jones says:

    We camped 6 nights in Smokemont Campground August 2017. The soothing sounds of the water running in the creeks could be heard throughout the campground. Highway sounds can be heard in section A.

  3. Tim Mathews says:

    Wanting to reserve group site for 16 people. Trail life troop sleeping in tents. I can’t get an answer at the number provided, only a fax tone. Can’t make reservations on the website. Any help would be appreciated. Date needed – Aug 2-3. Leaving on the 4th.
