This site needs to be updated. Abram's Creek campground is NOT first come first serve. It is by registration only. Something I am not very pleased about. I drove there last weekend only to find a big sign indicating how to register for this campground. Such a disappointment. I snapped a picture of the sign, but unfortunately, it seems I can't upload images to this website.

I would love to know the general availability of the campgrounds in July. I’d just like to know the odds we would be sleeping in the car if everything is booked.

Question for any campground that doesn't accept bookings.. I'm going to drive hours to your location only to have you tell me you don't have an available spot?

First time camping in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The campground was beautiful and our site was right up agains the creek. Very quiet and secluded campground. Would highly recommend the day hike to the waterfalls!
