A Smokey Mountains Week in NOV

My wife and I were supposed to spend the last 3 weeks of October in the Smokey Mountains. Events conspired against us, and the planned 3 weeks in October trip turned into one week in November. We still had a great time!

We stayed at the Tuckaseegee RV Resort. Camping in the Smoky Mountains | Tuckaseegee River Campground

It was out first time there. The campground is in a super location (on US 74, 2 miles east of the US 441 exit to Cherokee. We loved staying there and will go back.

The pluses: location, friendly staff, good rates, beautiful views, super clean restrooms, good campground store, Tuckaseegee River Access, walking trail, large lots.

The minuses: internet coverage poor, Verizon only cellphone coverage, all lots are back-in.

The pictures:

October is supposed to be leaf season in the Smokys. We missed it. November wasn't too bad - there was still some color.







The leaves were down at higher elevations. It is a different kind of beauty.

we love the smokies. Elkmont is in the park and is probably one of the prettiest places we have stayed ever.

Thanks for the kudos. We are in Gatlinbug this week. Not camping but still having fun. It is the first time I have been to Gatlinburg when it wasn't crowded. We have had some cold weather. There was some snow higher in the mountains. I took a few pics....
