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.
