We ended up camping for two nights behind the renters house. They were very friendly and didn’t make it weird.
I was a little disappointed that we didn’t get to camp on the 70 acres but there was no way our new Travel Trailer would have made it over the small creek without dragging and my husband did not want to risk it.
Very quiet - yet near gatlinburg
I recommend this spot. So very close to the GSMNP, I wanted a spot near the Ramsey Cascades trailhead. The site is beautiful, it feels like you are in a "bowl", I was surrounded by green field and trees. Close enough to the Gatlinburg area, but not so close to have continual road noises; it is not located near a cross road which gets traffic, so it is very quiet! The farm road to the site was a little muddy, it had rained maybe one-two days prior to my arrival, but I didn't have trouble navigating. There is one creek to cross through on the farm road, but it is rocky on the bottom, so no worry about getting stuck in creek.
Welcoming and scenic location
Had a great time camping on William’s land. Well taken care of farm with plenty of flat space and helpful signage. The dirt road up to the campsite was manageable in a Honda Fit, so no problems there. Would camp there again!
Navigating the actual entrance to the farm took a little skill, but this piece of property is beautiful! Lots of wildlife in the area which caused some really neat sounds to fall asleep to at night.
Level ground, well kept grass, and plenty of space -- everything we were looking for in a site. Would definitely say a vehicle with plenty of ground clearance is advised, as there is a small gulley to cross at the entrance.
Close to the spots...yet secluded
I would definitely recommend Franklin Farm to those looking for privacy and a minimalist experience. Was definitely an adventure driving my buggy across the small stream and around the trails looking for that perfect spot which I found on top of the ridge. Well groomed and beautiful scenery. I recommend a 4x4 to get around. Very quiet and peaceful. Thank you William
