The Gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains

Nestled in the lush, wooded forests of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg is Tennessee’s premier mountain resort destination.
Noah Bud Ogle Cabin and Walker Sisters' Cabin will appeal to history buffs. Step out of the city life by going to River Rafting & Tubing and Roaring Fork. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Gatlinburg: Raft Outdoor Adventures (in Hartford) and Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Clingmans Dome & Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail). And it doesn't end there: cruise along Newfound Gap Road, putt your heart out at Ripley's Davy Crockett Mini Golf, take in the exciting artwork at Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community, and admire the sheer force of Ramsey Cascades.
