2 acres hosted by Jonathan And Julie F.
7 lodging sites · 4 tent sites
Near Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Within a 60-minute drive from the Gatlinburg Welcome Center.
As a two time hiker of the Appalachian Trail, my wife Julie and I have a dream of helping fellow hikers and those that wish to experience the outdoors in various ways. The area is close to many points on the trail as well as access to water sports. Julie is a great resource if you are interested in a short day hike or long-distance hiking.

This was such a friendly nice place to visit! It was my daughter’s first camping trip and they had such a good time. I wasn’t expecting to be in someone’s front yard, but it was amazing. Our host was super kind.

Beautiful space with views of the Smoky Mountains. There was a nice field to run and play for the kids. The hosts Julie and Jonathan were very welcoming. Hot water for the shower and water spigot that was filtered so easy to fill up bottles or use to make food. Would definitely stay here again.

Hiker's Rest - Bunkhouse
Stunning Stay
The bunkhouse was perfect us! My friend and I stayed here for one night, and we had the place to ourselves! The bunkhouse has 2 queen beds on the lower level and 2 twin beds as the top bunks. We each had a queen to ourselves! There was coffee and snacks for a cheap price and frozen dinners too! We enjoyed the sunshine and looked out over the amazing views of the Smokies from the hammock. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely stay again! Julie and Jon were incredibly nice and accommodating. The laundry was done by Jon in their home at no cost, and pur clothes smelled amazing when they were done! We enjoyed the hot water and shampoo, conditioner, and soap in the outside shower. For the price of this stay, it was a steal and I highly recommend staying here! Thank you Jon and Julie!

Absolutely phenomenal. Jonathan and Julie exceeded every expectation we had, to the point we will never camp another place while in Tennessee. Julie had amazing recommendations on hikes. Jonathan greeted us as soon as we pulled in. Their sweet dog Stella played with our kiddos. Everything was incredible. The views in the morning were breathtaking. I can not recommend Hipcampers enough. We WILL be back, soon!
