Great Smoky Mountains and the Blue Ridge Parkway

Great Smoky Mountains

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park straddles Tennessee and North Carolina and is the most visited of all America’s national parks with 9 million visitors per year! And it certainly felt very busy when we arrived mid week slap bang in the middle of summer holidays in July. Don’t despair, even though it was busy we still managed to secure a place to set up our tent, spending the first night in the north west section of the park at Elkmont Campground and the second night at Deep Creek Campground in the south. There are ten developed campgrounds – some reservable and some first come-first served as well as plenty of backcountry camping. The many tourist towns surrounding the park also have accommodation options.
