We had a great time camping on the farm. Nice and secluded, lots of land, and felt safe and secure passing through multiple gates. Very convenient to anything you would need just down the highway a few miles. Great stop to recharge our batteries on the road home!

Staying so close to all the cows was so cute and such a great experience! They were very curious and came up to fence where we were able to pet them! We got some awesome film photos we are excited to develop! I would heartily recommend staying here any time you want to visit the smoky mountains!

Rustic but also reassuring. Plenty of privacy but close enough to a main road that you don't feel too isolated, and if you need anything it's a short drive away. The cows are awesome and curious!

Camping spot was awesome. Everywhere in Gatlinburg and pidgin forge was full and we still managed to last minute book with them. It’s on top of a hill with a decent view. Very primitive so make sure you bring anything you lol need for your stay but that was what I was hoping for so it worked out great!

Stayed by campfire ring next to the barn. Cows were in a different pasture when we arrived but in the morning they came up to the fence and seemed very curious.

The road was barely noticeable but the coyotes started howling at night which was wild because one coyote was so close you could clearly hear all the chatter of the howl. This location also has an amazing view.
