Abrams Creek Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Campers don’t just stumble into this well-kept secret, hidden at the end of a gravel road off a meandering valley road. But those who find it make it worth their time.

Located at the extreme western edge of the Smokies, Abrams Creek Campground may be off the beaten tourist path, but nearby there are plenty of footpaths, as well as a few other activities. Located in a wooded flat along a tranquil section of Abrams Creek, this intimate campground provides a relaxing setting not found in most national park campgrounds. The 16 sites are usually filled only on weekends and holidays."

If you’re looking for a spot to camp in a tent or VERY small RV (12-feet max) near the Smoky Mountains, this campground is an excellent spot. Located just off Foothills Parkway, this campground is conveniently located near Townsend, TN. It’s very small (with just 16 campsites) and it’s not fancy, but that’s part of the appeal. This isn’t the campground to go to if you’re looking for amenities. It does have flush toilets and running water – but that’s it. There are no water hookups and no shower facilities. You should only head here if you’re looking to get back to nature and away from the crowed without actually going into the backcountry. Dogs are allowed as long as you keep them on a leash. Don’t take a large vehicle back here – the road is narrow and there isn’t a lot of room to maneuver. Reservations are not accepted – this campground is first-come, first-served.

I went camping and hiking at Abrams Creek Campground opening week this year. It was a great time. The Campsite is nice, kinda small areas for each site, but we were able to set up 3 tents comfortably. We hiked the trail towards Abrams falls, but unfortunately forgot our map so we ended up going the wrong way. Still lots of fun though, the trails are pretty simple, with only a few spots that were difficult, mostly crossing streams. I definitely recommend this spot for those that are looking for a small peaceful campsite, with some good hiking. Abrams creek is quite lovely as well. Definitely worth stopping for a night if you are in the area.
