Smokey Mountains RV Parks

Anybody found a good long term RV park up around the Smokey Mountains? Maybe in the foothills?

I found a couple but wonder if there are more.

We are thinking of that area since it will be about 4 hours out of Nashville.

thanks in advance!

There are a couple in Chattanooga. We lived in Raccoon Mountain (Tiftonia exit) long term and bounced between Chester Frost (28 day time frame) and Harrison Bay SP (until we could get back into Chester Frost) before moving into Raccoon Mountain. There is also Best Holiday Trav L Park and Shipps. But those two are very pricey. They took lessons from KOA. Shipps is so bad that we refer to them as Pirates.

Most of the regular campgrounds will be open all winter. Most will take long term (month-to-month) campers.

The problem with a lot of the year round campgrounds in tourist areas around the Southern Appalachians like in (NC counties) Swain County (Bryson City), Macon County, Jackson County, Clay County, Cherokee County, (GA counties) Rabun County, Towns County, Union and Fannin County, is that they tend to book up for the "season" well in advance. I spent most of my life in that area. I know of campgrounds in Macon county that have reservations booked up to 2 years in advance. You might be able to stay over the winter (if open) but summer starts getting iffy and when the "Leaf Looker" season hits you may well be kicked out. Make sure you ask in advance if you need to make reservations or pay a deposit for that time. Make sure that if you are staying long term, that you stop back in the office (once you decide if you want to stay long term) and talk to someone who can give you some real answers. You do not want to be stuck looking for a place to stay over a holiday weekend or during Leaf Lookers.
