Campgrounds in North Carolina outside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park

[ Tennessee ] [ South Carolina ]

Campgrounds – Casual and inexpensive, campgrounds cater to those of us still longing to pitch a tent and sleep out under the stars. This includes your tent dwellers and RV owners, or a combination of both. In Rod's Guide to the Smoky Mountains, you'll find a local directory that pertains to all three types of campers, and also includes a special section adapted from Johnny Molloy's new guide "The Best in Tent Camping: Smoky Mountains". Average cost per night: $8 for tent sites.
