Family of four with 11 & 9 yr old boys. It was fun to walk the grounds and learn some things. Lots of wild life (chickens, turkeys, and elk). Bathrooms were clean and the people were super nice. The hike by the river is very nice and cool next to the water. Easy hike. Fun time.

This was not on my list of things to do and we only did it because it was beside a river walking path. It was very interesting. I loved it, my 72 year old mom loved it and my 10 year old loved it! It gave a great overview of what life was like on a farm in the mountains... More

Located behind the visitors center, the property is beautiful and rustic, and of course has an amazing view. The area is kept up very well, and is a nice stroll. There is a river there too, you can go in and a nice scenic path for walking.

Highly recommend a stop here as you enter or exit the south part of the Great Smokies. Beautiful, creekside walking trail; nice exhibit of old farm buildings with signage; great gift shop; clean restrooms; and I think there were picnic tables, too.

I would recommend going around 5 or so because there always seems to be elk in the fields around that time. The displays and barns are very nice especially if you don't want to take the drive out Cade's Cove. The stream beside the farm is very relaxing, great picture site or just set and relax.

This farm is a collection of buildings from around the Smokys, so it's not as "authentic" as what you'll find in Cade's Cove (Townsend, TN) or the Roaring Fork Motor Tr (Gatlinburg), BUT if you're looking for a more COMPLETE, one-stop exhibit, this is the place to visit. Unlike a few of the other settlement preservations in the area, this... More

We enjoyed our quick tour of this museum. It is right next to the Vistor's Center so made sense to swing by. These are authentic buildings that the Park Service brought from the GSMNP.
