Cade's Cove is a classic spot to camp in the Great Smokey Mountain National Park. It is the most visited National Park in the US for a reason! Stunning waterfalls, breath-taking hikes, and gorgeous views are but minutes away from this family friendly camping site. Growing up only a few hours from this plethora of hiking, my family would backpack in the fall and enjoy the beautiful cove in the summer. Hidden conveniently near the edge of park gives you quick access to "civilization" but also to some of the most diversified fauna in the United States. If my memory serves me correct most sites are priced around $12-18 a night for tent camping and offer everything you might need to enjoy your getaway.

We spent a few nights here while exploring the park over Memorial Day Weekend. It was busy, but the campground was still very quiet. The facilities are nice, but there are no showers available anywhere in the park. It was not cheap... $22/night, but it was a really convenient location.
