We really enjoyed how quiet and peaceful it felt during out whole stay at Cosby. The location on the northwestern edge of the park makes it not ideal for traveling to other parts of the park, but there's plenty of hiking right there. Try the Hen Wallow Falls Trail hike, it was one of our favorites in the park. The... More

We camped here from Friday July 17th until Monday July 20th. The campground was very nice and definatly gives you a secluded feel. I had gotten one of the reservation sites (B89), which was OK. My only complaint about this site is that you and your neighbor are right next to each other. When I stay here again I will... More

Since my husband and I tend to not like crowds, but wanted to stay in the Great Smoky Mountains (the most visited national park in the US), I was looking for a place where we could find some quiet. I was somewhat successful in choosing Cosby. Coolest part of our stay here: we couldn't figure out what the high-pitched noise... More

We recently spent 3 nights camping at Cosby Campground in the Great Smoky Mountains NP. The campsites all had a tent pad and picnic table. Parking was conveniently close to each site. A few of the sites were a bit close for my taste, and the quiet hours were not really enforced. It would be nice for a campground host... More

The campground is shady with heavy tree cover and the campsites are spacious. We camped here with tents and not an RV. It's fairly quiet although one time we heard noise from people at a nearby campsite late into the night. Bathroom facilities are well kept and clean. Both A and B loops have nice campsite options. Some sites have... More

We didn't realize we were in a small rain forest at the camp ground. It was never mentioned about the amount of rain they receive. Lets just say we had 2 mini monsoons and decided to call it a day. The camp sites are amazing and the bathrooms stay very clean! My only complaint (besides the rain, lol) is that... More

We camped here in a pop up camper. Mostly a tent site campground but there are a few sites that are camper capable. Very quite and peaceful. Hiking trails nearby. Gatlinburg is nearby but far enough away so you are off the beaten path. be advised there are no hook ups here.

We did not stay at the campground but my daughter and I drove to this campground from Gatlinburg to go on this trail. It was about a 40 minute drive. We drove back a different route to sevierville and it was also about 40 minutes. Beautiful drive. The trail was so lovely with the sound of rushing water. Restrooms were... More

We have camped in the Cosby campground several times. The campground can be reached from I-40 without needing to travel through the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area. The tent camping sites are spacious, with tall trees providing shade. I love the sounds at night as the high winds blow the tall tree branches. The hike to Mt. Cammerer is right out of... More
