Excellent Location with peace and calm. Lots of games to play with mesmerizing light music on Saturday evenings. The tents are amazing and Deluxe Tent is the best. Will sure stay at Under Canvas again.

My daughter and I wanted to get into nature to soothe our minds. It was the perfect setup. Close enough to fun and far enough out for relaxing. The staff were great and very accommodating. I will definitely consider this again. Decreased cell service was a plus in our case.

Great concept but just way too expensive for this area by GSMNP. Once you are on the property, there is not much to do - no creeks or water features, no hiking trails, no yard "games". Food was good but pricey. OK my positive feedback: Staff was very helpful, enjoyed the entertainment at dinner, as well as the complimentary s'mores at the communal firepits.

Thank you gmcRoswell for you honest feedback from your time with us. I apologizes that you did not find the creeks on property, cornhole and other yard games to your liking or the few smaller paths on property to take a least a walk on. We will take your feedback and make sure it is crystal clear for future guests what we do offer at camp. As for the food, my apologies you believe it was pricey for this area. We all hope you were still able to create lifelong memories while you were here. Thank you still for choosing to stay with us at Under Canvas Great Smoky Mountains.

This was my first time glamping and I loved it! I usually travel solo, and I really liked the community that is created by Under Canvas. What better way to connect with other people than roasting marshmallows around a fire? The tent was spacious and the bed was very comfy. I had a hard time starting my fire the first night, so I asked for help and the staff was great at giving hands on instruction - I was able to do it myself on the second night. It was definitely a chilly night but the fire really helped (and you are in a tent, so it'll be a little chilly). I was in a safari tent so I had a shared bath and shower - they were all clean and provided plenty of towels. You pull a chain to turn the water on in the shower, so that was a little tricky to maneuver but it's camping! The food and local beer selection was delicious and a nice change from what you can find in the town. It is a little bit further to get into the Smokies versus staying down in Gatlinburg, but it's nice to get away from the crowd and see the stars! There was live music one night, and of course s'mores. (Oh - and unlimited coffee, tea, and hot chocolate which helps to warm you up!) Staff wore masks which was a nice change from the rest of town. Highly recommend and I'm excited to check out other locations!
