Great Smoky Mountains National Park has a reputation, somewhat undeserved, of being overcrowded. Sure, some places can seem a bit peopled, but if you know the right places to go, your time in the park can be a relaxing getaway. Big Creek Campground is one of those places. It is the Smokies’ smallest campground and its sole tent-only campground. This walk-in campground is set deep in the woods adjacent to the pure mountain waters of Big Creek—so deep, in fact, that when you come to the campground parking area, you’ll wonder where the campground is. (For your information, it’s between the campground parking area and noisy Big Creek.)
