This is just the most amazing campground there is! Now warning to everyone who wants to go camping with their hairdryers, and make-up and extras (this isn't for you). If you like to tent camp, walk up throw on a sweatshirt, and sit by the fire and drink hot chocolate, then this is for you! It's a precious little campground,... More

The campsites are clean and shady, The tent-pad is level and flat. The restrooms are in good working order and clean. The campground was fairly quiet. It was not crowded at the time we visited. There is access to many hiking trails into some of the most beautiful parts of the Great Smokey National Park here. Self check-in worked well... More

We spend 3 days at a group site in Cosby campground, the the tent sites and picnic table sites were perfect. The restrooms were immaculate and cleaned every day. Rangers were very helpful and informative. Can't wait to go back!!

We didn't actually camp here. We drove to it early one morning as a day trip from our vacation cabin to hike and picnic.It was a lovely drive, and we say about 20 wild turkeys on our drive in. The campground is beautiful. There is lots of water that the kids threw rocks in, looked for critters and just enjoyed... More

This is a great campground for tent camping. Unlike many of the other campgrounds in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, most of the sites here are tent-only, so there are not dozens of RVs, and traffic is light. We came on Friday afternoon of Labor Day weekend and 90% of the spots were available - we were able to take... More

Cosby Campground is easily our favorite place to car tent camp! It's clean, usually quiet, most campsites are private and it's almost never full even in the summer. There is great hiking and trail running available and multiple places to jump in the creek for a refreshing swim/bath. We have always had good luck at getting a private campsite that... More

Stayed at this campground twice, once just before its season ended (obviously it was quiet) and then this June(2013). We were prepared for it to be very busy, but it was nice and quiet again. There had been a tornado and Loop B was completely closed. We arrived on a Saturday, and by Sunday afternoon through Wednesday there will only... More

Love this campground! Nice sites, most are peaceful and large enough for privacy. A picnic table and fire pit are provided and now that my backpacking days are on hold, love the availability of a clean bathroom (with cold water) within a reasonable walk. Many great trails off of the campground and the sound of the Cosby creek is music... More

We decided to camp for 2 days in smokey after reading the review. When we got there, it was around midnight. Since we already paid the reservation, we just went to our campground and the next day, the campground host handed us the permit. The campground host was friendly, knowledgeable about the area and helpful. Check in and check out... More

This is one of the best kept secrets in the Smokeys! I almost hate to share it because I don't want it overrun with people. Campsite probably fills up quicky so call for reservations. But this is also a great option if you are staying in Knoxville and are wanting to hike for the day without having to go through... More
