The Appalachian Pond Campground offers a variety of options when it comes to staying on site. If you prefer to rough it and truly become one with nature, you can take advantage of one of the 10 flat campsites nestled amid the trees. These offer the perfect places to set up your tent alone or with the rest of your crew. Three of the sites are big enough for larger groups.
The campsites themselves offer a variety of attractive natural views and points of interest. Some overlook the pond while others feature the intriguing sights and sounds of a running brook. All are ringed by towering trees and give you amazing opportunities to enjoy the flora and fauna of this Smoky Mountain region.
What amenities do the campsites have?
Despite the wilderness settings of these tent spots, they are all conveniently located within 200 feet of the shower house. This gives you convenient access to running water and a way to clean up after exploring the landscape. Your comfort is one of our most important goals.
Every campsite comes with a cleared fire pit suitable for gathering around both day and night. Sing campfire songs, roast marshmallows, or enjoy the snap and crackle of an open fire. Please use the firewood provided by the campground hosts only and always maintain proper fire safety practices.
None of the campsites come with cooking pots, utensils, lanterns, flashlights, tents, or any other items that you need to stay comfortable in the woods. You must bring in everything yourself and make sure to take it out again when you leave. If you forget anything, a quick trip to a nearby town will help you find everything you need.
Can you drive to the campsites?
While there are no roads or driveways directly to the campsites, you can get very close in your vehicle. This allows you to unload your tent, backpacks, coolers, and other gear with ease. Then, you must bring your vehicle to the designated parking area while you enjoy walking around the tent sites on foot.
