Elkmont Campgrounds Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Elkmont Campground is big, but so is the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Situated at the confluence of Jakes Creek and the Little River, deeply ensconced in the bosom of the Tennessee Smokies, Elkmont has been a destination for visitors since well before the park came to be.
Pre-park visitors stayed in cottages and camped where they could. Now we can camp in the park’s official campground where a national park–level experience awaits. Restrooms and water spigots are smartly spread throughout the campground. Elkmont fills during the summer months, especially holiday weekends. If you go when school is out, get reservations. October is busy too. Other than that, campsites are easily had."
