Gatlinburg, Tennessee, is a popular destination for hikers, fishermen and women and outdoor enthusiasts of all stripes. Its location adjacent to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park puts it near the park's 800 miles of trails, including the Appalachian Trail. The Pigeon River, a 10-minute drive from Gatlinburg, is a popular spot for rafting and kayaking. While there are plenty of spots in the park to pitch a tent, the area also has an abundance of lodging, including several resort cabins.
