You’ll love this unique experience, and each tipi has a different story you’ll appreciate. Here are 4 reasons why you should stay in the tipis at our campground in the Smoky Mountains:

1. Unique Stories for Each

Dancing Bear Tipi explanation

Each tipi has a different name. There is the Dancing Bear Tipi, Little Deer Tipi, and Big Fish Tipi. They all have different animals woven into the material so you can easily tell which tipi is which! On a rock near the tipis, there is a sign with information about the connection of the name to the Smoky Mountains. For Dancing Bear, the sign talks about how the Cherokee thought of black bears as a spiritual guide, but they also used the black bears for several practice things, such as clothing. For Little Deer, the sign talks about how Little Deer was the protector of the deer. When the Cherokee killed a deer, they needed to pray and thank the Deer Spirit. If they did not, the Deer Spirit would give the hunter arthritis so they could not move. The Big Fish tipi sign talks about how fish for the Cherokee symbolized life.

2. Cool Experience

Not only will you have fun camping at our campground in the Smoky Mountains, you can have a brand new experience when you choose to rent one of our tipis. Where else can you go in the area and say you stayed in a tipi? Your whole family will love this new and unique experience. You won’t find camping like this anywhere else in the Smokies!

3. Awesome Interiors

The inside of the tipis are just as impressive as the exteriors. These tents have a pillow top queen size bed and a leather couch where you can hang out. The couch converts into another bed, so two adults and two kids can be comfortable in the tipi. Worried about being hot and sticky? Our tipis also have air conditioning so you stay cool during the summer. Plus, you’re shielded from the wind and rain!
