We LOVED it!!!! Very peaceful and they were really nice. Loved that elk was walking around the campground. The views was awesome!!! we will be going back. I recommend it to everyone. Though down off the mountain it was 90+ degrees up on the mountain it was 75 degrees and a good breeze. I could sit up there all day.... More

We've been here 3 times and just booked another long weekend stay. There are no "bad" spots at this place. There are enough rules to keep it nice but it's not overly restrictive. There's just something about mountain tops! Great energy.... Keep this place a secret unless you want to share it with someone very cool with a good soul.

We had no trouble getting a reservation the Monday before Memorial Day, which really surprised us. The views were absolutely amazing and the sites were spacious. It was actually quite cold our first night, so be prepared for cold nights and a strong wind at times. Although the sites don't have water or electricity, there are bathrooms available throughout the... More

I was looking for a campground to replace Balsam Mt campground and thought I'd check Mile High out. I wasn't impressed and the owner was cold cold cold so I left. He didn't even acknowledge that I was standing there for several minutes. My truck was full of camping equipment which I'm sure he saw but he certainly wasn't interested... More

This is our third time staying and always enjoy it. Friendly staff and Sammy is a hoot, always make you feel welcome. The only place we ever consider staying when camping in the Smokies And cant beat a hot shower at a primitive campground!

Simple campground - which is what camping is all about, in my opinion. It is primitive, with no electric or water hookup. I like that too, in that it attracts folks who really enjoy nature, rather than big rig travelers. The location of the campground is a bit off the beaten path, but not too hard to find if you...

Staying here was a highlight of traveling through this area. I truly felt the presence of God at two points while enjoying the view from our campsite. We did get to see a couple of elk on our last morning there. While the bathrooms could use better cleaning, I would definitely stay here again!

For 5 years, my son and I have camped at Mile High. I have seen complaints of the facilities, remember, this is a CAMPGROUND. Mile high has hot showers and a place to use the loo. The views are great, close to NOC and fishing. This is a great place to camp.
