The grandchildren liked the area that had a number of buildings fairly close together. The ranger presentation was especially good for them.

It was nice viewing all the surroundings around Cades Cove especially seeing it was free. The view of the mountains were amazing. We would have loved to see some animals but I'm guessing it was still too hot at 4:30. It took us over a...More

The scenery was pretty cool, but each attraction had at least half a mile walk in, so my little brother and two-year-old nephew couldn't even do the whole thing. The map came in handy, but it was still hard to navigate. The whole one-way road...More

Hard to imagine a more beautiful setting for nature lovers. Saw two bears close up (from the car). You cannot be on a hurry to get through here. It takes time. Worth the trip.
