This primitive campsite is located 5 minutes from the Abrams Creek Ranger Station at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It is private, shaded, and next to a small stream that will lull you to sleep at night. There is a bathhouse with a composting toilet and cold shower available. An old concrete picnic table stands as a testament to the enjoyment and relaxation of several generations and is now glad to be uncovered and open for many generations to come. There are numerous species of wild flora and fauna right there in your campsite! Across the fence is an old barn and field that will remind you of mountain living from days gone by. You will have access to miles of backcountry hiking once you take the 5 minute drive to the GSMNP and you can come back to your campsite and enjoy your privacy! You may also enjoy motorcycling on the dragon which is 5 miles at the end of Happy Valley Road. Or...maybe you just want to hang up the hammock and listen to the frogs and watch the fireflies. Whatever your hobby is, this campsite is the place to call home.

The campsite was exactly as described. It was clean and ready for us. Access for one vehicle was easy and right off the road. That being said remember that you are right off the road so if motorcycle and car noise bothers you it is constant throughout the day. It did settle down at night and didn't bother sleep from 11pm-7am. You are nestled in the valley and the horse in the field was really cool for our 6 yr old. Very friendly and came up to fence and allowed to pet multiple times!
Kind people and cool critters
This site was amazing! Nice and secluded and the bathroom was great. Sharon and her son are so incredibly kind and supplied us with dry firewood and a tour of their many critters!
Camping with our pups
The host was very kind and helped us figure out directions the next day! It was also super helpful that they offered their wifi from their house since there is spotty cell service in the area! We had a lovely fire and the table was large enough for many more than just us! We also appreciated how clean the composting toilet was as well! And the horse was super sweet too! We loved that it was dog friendly!
Great place to stay near the park!
This is a lovely camping spot with a fancy outhouse, picnic table, etc! It's right next to hiking in the National Park, a mountain pass with a fabulous view and pullouts/lookout spots, and all the roads around are beautiful drives. Sharon was very helpful and communicative as well. Definitely a bargain and way more peaceful than you'll find in the big campgrounds.
Quite the mountain experience
My first experience with Hipcamp and I was not disappointed at all. Beautiful piece of property right outside Smokey Mountains National park. The hand built outhouse was a nice touch, outdoor shower by the creek was really nice. Their son , Matt greeted me and gave me the run down, couldn’t have been any nicer. Matt and Sharon made sure I had what I needed. Loved it, nice and private. My mini van did get stuck in the mud and they applied every resource and got me out
