Planning trip to Smokey Mountains late April and want to avoid the Gatlinburg/Dollywood area. Have a 34' fifth wheel and looking for clean campground (prefer full hookups but open to other options) where we can enjoy the mountains and have easy access to the park where we will spend most of our time. Appears North Carolina campgrounds offer a more "mountain" experience but concerned about access entry to park. Suggestions?

Try Maggie Valley. Jonathan Creekside Campground should easily handle your rig. MV is quieter and oh so much nicer to base camp and see the Smokies. Don't forget to do breakfast at Joey's Pancake House.

I would look at Smokey Bear campground. We have stayed there and like it when we stayed there. They have noce pull thrus and they are not so commercial.

You should try the Peaceful Side of the Smokies and go to Townsend TN, there are several CG's in the area that you might like, we always stay at The Mountaineer. You can pull up Townsend on the Web and they list the CG's. The Mountaineer is a small CG and I think they only have 1 pull thru site. However, they are very family oriented and there is lots to do in the area. If you like the outdoors, you would have to go to Cade's Cove. The Townsend area is just over Wear's Valley Road from Dollywood and the surrounding towns, about 18 miles if memories serves. Hope this helps. Anne
