Destin Fl to Look Rock Campground in Smoky Mt NP TN

I am going to be heading from Destin Florida to Ohio and am thinking about stopping for a few days at Look Rock campground in the Smoky Mt National Park on the way back to Ohio.

I am looking for some local knowledge of how to get from I-75 to the campground while driving my 38' long motorhome pulling my Jeep. The real problem is that my motorhome is 14' tall since it is a toyhauler with a loft above the garage. I have enough horsepower to get over just about anything that the Smoky Mts can throw at me but I worry about switchback roads and bridges that I can't drive under.

Can anyone out there give me an idea of the best way to get from I-75 to the campground?

On the map it looks like I can take 321 into Lenoir City all the way into Maryville and then pick up 336 to the Foothills Parkway to the campground, but I know that 321 can be a very twisty road...

Thanks for your help...

Hi Jemc02,
You will be off the beaten path with your choice of CG. Height clearance all depends on TN DOT maintenance cutting the trees. Your best bet is to call TN DOT at 615.741.2848.

Look Rock may be one of the first come first served CGs. Call the GSMNP ranger station for information about getting a site. Their number is 877- 444-6777.

If you have your heart set on this CG, the chances you'll take may be worth it. For me, I'd find a CG more in the mainstream and drive to the GSMNP for recreation.

If you are looking for a RV resort with peace and quite yet only a mile from the Parkway in Sevierville, consider The Dell at About the Dell

Thanks Gary. Based on the projected temps being in the 80's with a high of 90 each day we are going to head to Townsend and stay in one of the campgrounds there that has 50 amp service instead of roughing it in the NP campground.
