Smokies camping?

What would be a good park in the Smokies for a fall stay of about a week?

Maggie Valley is a great place to "headquarter". The Blue Ridge Parkway is just up the mountain at one end of the valley, Cherokee is about a 30-minute drive across the mountain, and Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge are about an hour's drive. It's a little laid-back town, doesn't even have a large grocery store, but Waynesville is only a 5-minute drive for everything you need. We love it!

We spent 4 nights at Smokemont campground in the last week of October last fall. It was a nice park service campground, with no hookups, but has bathrooms and a dump station. There were a variety of campers there, everything from tents to motorhomes. We enjoyed our stay.

We always stayed at Cross Creek on Moody Farm Rd. Family owned and they live on site. No pool or bath house so not many kids. We used to stay for 4-6 months until last year we bought a cabin just down the street from the park.

After living in the area for over 40 years, I would say where ever you can get a reservation. It's a very popular area in the summer. In the fall, the leaf-lookers pack the place. Last time I was there in the fall (Oct 2021), I stayed my Mom's yard. The reservation I made for a single night in the middle of the week up at Indian Boundary (Cherokee NF) was made in April. It's a popular area but wasn't quite as crowded due to the COVID, thank goodness. I managed to get a spot for one night and that was all I needed.

Which park in Maggie Valley do you frequent?

I stayed there for a week at the beginning of this month. Nice park, but fairly noisy with the highway traffic on the other side of the river. The bathroom could not have been any cleaner.

For Maggie Valley area, we enjoyed https://www.visitnc.com/listing/SUTd...ily-campground.
It's a short drive into Maggie and near Cataloochee for elk viewing.

This is from their website.

No RVs older than 10 years, unless approved by management. Please call office for more info. All RVs must be factory manufactured.
When I stayed there, one Class C motorhome was on a Ford E350 or E450 older style cab that Ford stopped producing in 2007. The MH was a nice looking unit.

In the past we've stayed at what was Tremont Outdoor Resort in Townsend, which I understand is now Little Arrow Outdoor Resort. Really liked the CG, and especially it's location for access to SMNP. Was FHU in a beautiful setting. Not sure impact of new ownership, but certainly worth a look see.

We have stayed at Cross Creek RV Park for about 8 years until a year or so ago when we bought a cabin just down the street from the park. Family owned and they live on site. Very clean and quite, no pool, no bath house. Not many kids and most folks there are very friendly. It is right in the heart of Maggie Valley and easy to get to about anywhere.

EDIT sorry I just saw that I had answered earlier, I guess I like the place lol

In the fall, in October? You should not need AC. We dry camp in the park at Elkmont. We have been there in October and had snow at night. The days might get into the high 70's - low 80's, but the nights you will need your blankets.

If we're there for 3 nights or less we do the no generator section. If we are there greater than 3 nights it's generator section.
