With all the hustle and bustle just moments away in downtown Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge, it would be easy to miss this hidden treasure on the Gatlinburg Bypass. If you are in town, make sure you steal away a couple moments of your vacation to take a short ride on the bypass. If you get on just inside the National... More

We have visited this park at least once a year for twenty years. Cabins have ben by Mountain Rentals, and this year by Amazing Views Of the Smokies. We love the area, all the attractions, the smells. This trip includes the Knoxville Zoo. The Smokies are God's masterpiece.

This place has so much to offer from breath taking scenery and motorcycle rides that will blow your mind. The city itself has great shops, food, attractions and is a stones throw from Pigeon Forge Tennessee. Highly recommend making this a place to visit.

The Gatlinburg By-Pass offers magnificent views of the Smoky Mountains and Gatlinburg. Sometimes the view is clear as a bell and at other times you can see mist rising from the valley into the mountain peaks. At night time, you can see the lights of downtown Gatlinburg.

I enjoyed shopping and it's hard to find locations I wish the had a map with alphabetical types and menus of all the attractions. However we did not go the visitors center. A list and map of all attractions,... More

We were very, very disappointed as we drove through Pigeon Forge and Gatlingburg on our trip to the Smokey Mountains, but once we drove up to the overlook (6,000 ft!) it was worth it. Next time, I would stay away from the tourist trap areas and maybe drive a little for this fantastic scenery. Too bad they had to make... More

We stopped here on our way to go on a hike to see the Gratto Falls. Definitely worth the stop. The view is breath taking.
