We stayed in group site 3 for a weekend. This is the smallest group site of the four, but was big enough for 2 large tents and several hammocks. The group circle is away from the standard sites, and it was nice feeling a little more secluded. Parking spaces for 5-6 vehicles.

We spent two nights at the campground. We had a campsite right on the river on the G Loop. Beautiful sites, with plenty of space to move and hang hammocks, and shade. Bathrooms were clean and staff friendly and helpful. They gave us info on a great hike.. We did see a bear with three cubs and throughout our stay,... More

We camped in G Loop in mid-July 2014. It is difficult to evaluate Elkmont campground because it has both strong positives and some negatives--and sadly, most of the negatives could easily be fixed. First the positives: The campground is in a perfect central location to explore most of the park and the area is beautiful. Many of the sites are... More

We have been using this campsite for 4-5 years and love it! We are tent campers and this place has great level sites and clean bathrooms. The staff are friendly and informative. The bonus is the ghost town within a 5 min walk! We love it! If you stay here you have to check out the old town of Elkmont,... More

Loved the campground and national park. Sites had shade and space, and many were along the river. No electric hookups or showers, but bathrooms were well equipped and clean. I was there with a group, and we rented the clubhouse. The fireflies were outstanding.

We love Elkmont. Its so close to Gatlinburg yet so far removed from everything. Be prepared for no power or running water and you'll be fine. Fairly large sites with lots of very private tent sites in some of the loops. Its also close to Cases Cove and Newfound Gap rd. This campground is loaded with history also, if your... More

We had a site right on the river. It was absolutely stunning. The sites are large and spacious. Ours had a fire ring with grill and also a place to hang your lantern. There was a nice big loop for the kids to ride bikes on and the weather was fabulous. Keep in mind that you can't use your generator... More

This campground was a great place to stay in the smokies. It is centrally located fairly close to cades cove and even closer to Gatlinburg. We had to buy a new battery unexpectedly and it was easy with a town so close. Roaring fork trail is just outside Gatlinburg. It has a 3 mile round trip trail to grotto falls.... More

Awesome safe family-friendly environment to camp with park ranger presence. Love to stay on sites by river to sleep while listening to gentle running water in river just few feet from site. Bears can be present at night, so rangers demand bear proofing your site at all times and will fine if in violation.
