We are sorry but we can no longer allow dogs to come tent camp with us.
While camping anywhere in the Great Smoky Mountains, remember that the animals are wild. Even in the Townsend TN area.
Never feed the animals, or get close enough for the animal to be disturbed. Keep all food items and garbage safely stored following the recommendations of the campground’s office.
Our tent sites have a fire ring and picnic table. They do not have power or water at them.
