When it’s summer in the Smokies, the weather is usually sunny and warm. You won’t have to worry about being cold at night because the temperatures usually stay in the 70s. During the day, it stays in the 80s and 90s, making it the perfect weather to be outside! While the occasional thunderstorm will come in, you’ll find plenty of fun things to do when it rains at our campground!

2. Enjoy the Outdoors

Another perk of booking a summer trip to our Great Smoky Mountains campground is being able to spend time outside. This area of East Tennessee is known for its beauty, so you’ll want to plan to spend some time outside! A great outdoor activity is to have a picnic or a prepare meal on the grill since they are available at every camp site. We also have volleyball, cornhole, and other fun outdoor games you can play together. Our campground is also close to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park , so you’ll be able to easily go hiking on different trails!

3. Swim in the River

One of the popular amenities at our campground is the swimming hole at the river! We are located right next to the river, so you can watch the water rush over the rocks, dip your toes in, or jump right in and swim! Many people also get a fishing license so they can fish up and down the water line during their vacation. Spending time in the river is a great way to cool off in the summer heat!

4. Close to the National Park

A huge perk of staying at our Great Smoky Mountains campground is being so close to the national park. It doesn’t cost anything to visit the park, making it one of the most popular places to visit in the area! You can go hiking, take a drive, or have a picnic at one of the picnic areas in the park. No matter how you want to spend time with your family in the park, you’ll love how close we are to it!

5. Plenty of Camping Options
