The River Life

17 sites · Lodging, Tents9 acres · Cosby, TN
Our location is phenomenal we are an hour from Knoxville and Asheville and just about 1/4 mile off I-40. Right at the foothills of the Smoky Mountains and 35 minutes from Gatlinburg about 40 minutes to Pigeon Forge (Dollywood), also about 45 minutes to Sevierville and one of my favorite Tanger Outlets!! The beautiful Smoky Mountains the National Park is filled with hiking trails and horse stables and trails. Some of the best white water rafting is less then 5 miles up the road along with zip lining and a lil taste of moonshine here and there. This property is primitive with no electric and has a camping style bathhouse. IT’s recommended for outdoor lovers and people that are not to needy. Site 7, 1 and 9 are the only direct riverfront.

Twin Valley Horse Ranch

5 sites · Lodging100 acres · Walland, TN
My late husband and myself bought the property in 1983 and it was all just overgrown land!We worked, cleared, built horse shelters/barns, cabins, cut trails, built the outdoor chapel for our wedding and of course fenced it all in for the horses! Started sharing with guests in 1993, so we have met so many amazing folks from all over the world!  Pass thru our gate into another world and leave all your worries and tensions behind. We are all about getting back to what is real -- nature, animals/horses and each other. Complete privacy!There are many mountain trails leaving right from our property! Lots to explore. You can even hike to the outdoor chapel with the pretty view of the Chilhowee Mountain range.  It is a short hike to the barn area for those who want to spend time rubbing the pot belly pigs' tummy, walk the mini horses, groom the love bug~Junebug (donkey), pet horses, cuddle with bunnies and feed chickens!  Every morning and night we set a time for all those who want to become involved with the care/feeding of petting animals and horses!

Roamstead

77 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents6 acres · Cosby, TN
Roamstead was born on a family RV trip across the country. Our founders noticed their glamorous plans often ended in glorified parking lots or dirty campgrounds without amenities or thought regarding design. Alongside that, many campgrounds seemed unapproachable to those who hadn’t been before. A vision was born to reinvent 'roughing it' in a way that could welcome all adventurers to experience the magic of the great outdoors. We believe the beauty of nature should be experienced by everyone. It's good for your health, and the more we connect with and learn about the outdoors, the more we'll feel compelled to protect it. Whether you've been camping all your life or this would be your first trip, we're here for you. We aim to build a bridge (you know, a metaphorical one) to the great outdoors, where all adventures can truly feel welcome. Roamstead is committed to making our outdoor spaces accessible to everyone. At our Smoky Mountains location, we're partnering with Friends of the Smokies to do just that. Friends assists the National Park Service in its mission to preserve and protect the Great Smoky Mountains National Park by raising funds and public awareness, and providing volunteers for needed projects. They restore trails, build handicap accessible access points, and provide urban youth educational opportunities in the park, to name just a few of their many projects. A dollar of each stay at Roamstead Smoky Mountains is donated back to Friends of the Smokies to help continue their mission.

Skip A Stone Farm

6 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents3 acres · Cosby, TN
If these mountains could talk… This historic homestead is alive and well. Mountain families and moonshiners passed this family farm from one generation to the next since the 1800’s. Primitive stone walls were built by farmers as property lines and served to keep farm critters close to home. Walk these hills and listen to the wind. Feel the pride and perseverance left behind by folks from long ago. Wake to a rooster’s crow and dewy fog in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Scenic views and mountain air create a peaceful escape.

Keira's Kabin

1 site · Lodging9 acres · Friendsville, TN
It started as a simply place to get away for the family but then family and friends started asking to use our Kabin so the rest is history.

We do hope you enjoy the peace and quiet you'll get when staying at Keira's Kabin.Learn more about this land:If you want to get away from the hussle and bussle of today's busy schedule, this is the place.  Surrounded by woods, nature and lots of wildlife.  Keira's Kabin sits down in a very quiet area on the property along side a spring fed creek.   It's very easy to get to and can accomodate up to 4 people.  The bunk bed allows 1 person to sleep up top and 2 people to sleep on the bottom.  There's also a lounge chair that folds out that another person can sleep on. All the bedding is available at the cabin, but if you want to bring your sleeping bags, you are more than welcome to.  There are some eating utensils available as well as a variety of cooking tools (frying pan, tongs, spachulas, etc). You can choose to use the campfire to cook or you can use the propane camp stove if you choose.  We also have a hot dog and hamburger holder, popcorn maker, marshmellow spears and sandwich makers that are used for cooking over the campfire.  There is great cell service at the cabin but no wifi.  Other area services include, Kengo gas station near the entrance of the property and within 7-10 minutes you can be in town to get anything you need.  Please let us know if you have any questions and we will be more than happy to help!

Cabins near Knoxville guide

Overview

Deep in the Smoky Mountain foothills, Knoxville is a big city with a knack for nature. Camp here to discover the birthplace of the Tennessee River, rolling hardwood forests, and six national parks. Whether you're paddling or exploring on horseback, it's easy to find solitude just outside the urban hustle. Big adventures await in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Here, forested peaks invite you to explore the Appalachian south. Spend an afternoon hiking to the summit of Mount LeConte. At night, marvel at the light show from 19 firefly species. With developed campgrounds, horse camps, and backcountry camping available, the Smokies have something for everyone. Are you traveling during the summer? Beat the famous Tennessee heat at Norris Dam State Park. Just north of Clinton, this park on the Norris Reservoir is your gateway to cruising nearly 700 miles of shoreline. From the two campgrounds with RV sites and rustic tent sites, you can reach the marina. (Pontoon rentals are a go!) For a taste of the diverse camping options near Knoxville, explore the cozy RV parks of Pigeon Forge. The amusement parks are a hit with families. In the Cherokee National Forest, you find wilderness cabins near prime whitewater rafting spots. By the way, for the best adventure weather, consider planning your trip for spring or fall. The snowy winters and muggy summers might limit your hiking time.
