Reservations are required. The road to the campground includes a narrow, steep, winding and exposed section of a couple of miles of gravel road over a mountain. Large RVs and large trailers might find it difficult. There is no electricity, water, or sewer hookups at the sites. There are flush toilets and cold water sinks but no showers. The sites in the center of the loop have little privacy. The sites on the outside of the loop have somewhat more privacy. The campground is along side Cattaloochee Creek. We camped at Cataloochee Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There are a number of meadows within walking distance where you can see elk and turkeys in the evening. I saw a mama black bear and cub one afternoon and evening.

This campground has become very popular in recent years due to the elk herd in the nearby fields. This campground does not have a dump station or shower house. It does have a small bathroom facility with flush toilets and a small sink to dump gray water. There are a few potable water spigots located throughout the campground. We camped at Cataloochee Campground (NPS Campground) in a Truck Camper.

This Smoky Mountain National Park campground is located at the end of Cove Creek Rd. which is an extremely narrow and winding road. This primitive campground does not offer any showers or dump stations. Reservations are not available. The area does offer several hiking trails and buildings to explore. Elk have been released in the area and may be seen grazing in the fields. Peaceful, no crowds, and beautiful scenery. RV size limit is 27'. We camped at Cataloochee Campground (NPS Campground) in a Truck Camper.
