We decided that we wanted to stay on the "Quiet Side of the Smokies" and tent camp near the Little River. After arriving in the area we checked out Tremont and found it virtually empty. We looked at the tent sites first and found them to be not shaded but found a wonderful little spot in the back corner near the creek. Again, since it was almost deserted this was an easy pick.
Trying to register that site, we were told that they do not allow tent camping on sites with hookups. I explained that I was certainly willing to pay the camper/RV price even if we did not intend to use the electric/water/etc. We were again told in no uncertain and quite rude terms that it was their policy that there was no tent camping allowed in that section even though the whole campground was virtually empty. I guess they did not want my money.
We went just down the street to a three letter campground and had a great time...by the river.More
