The Carolina Canoe Club hosts their Week of Rivers the week of July 4th every year at Smoky Mountain Meadows. During this 9 day event there are several hundred people present at any one time. Sites are available for RVs (full hookups or electric with water). There is a dump station near the office. Sites are available for tents as well. The bathhouse is kept clean and hot water is present at all times even through the heavy load during Week of Rivers. There is a small covered pavilion with electricity. Games and toys are in a storage shed nearby. Ice and firewood are sold on site as are a washer and dryer. Alaska Creek runs through the campground and will lull you to sleep. The campground hosts are pleasant and very helpful.

The creekside sites down at the end by the barn are nice, especially on the back side of the creek across the bridge. Portapotties were clean. My reservation was a good idea, it was very busy that week because of the week of rivers event. Most of the sites lack privacy so don’t expect to have a secluded spot. There is a dump station by the entrance if you need that for your stay. Overall we were very happy and enjoyed relaxing by the small creek in the evening after a day on the river.

Loved this campground as long as we were near a picnic table. Particularly liked the coffee machine on the office porch. The bathrooms were exceptionally well maintained. Not too many bugs (well cared for landscape). Also appreciated the outlets where we could recharge our phones. A great experience! Thanks!

More wifi signage to download maps. I didn't know there was free wifi until a camper mentioned it. Lots of us have never driven in the mountains, nice to know we won't get lost:) I would recommend to a friend!

This is where EOTD has been hosted since last year. Plenty of space for tents and car campers and a separate space for RVs. I believe the owner of this site also owned the five log cabins down the street. The bath house was very pleasantly clean. Five toilet stalls and four showers in the ladies room, I'm ASSUMING the same for the men's. Outside the building there is an available microwave and outdoor sink and electrical plug. There is also a net setup for volleyball and a covered seating area with tables and a TV. Only thing you need to be aware of is phone service. It goes in and out... wifi is super iffy.

We were there as part of a large group for Elements on the Dragon (May 2024) & this campground is wonderful! It is nestled in such a gorgeous spot w/ the mountains surrounding it. It was clean, the facilities were attended too promptly & the staff was great. Susan, the camp host hit it out of the park. It was our 1st time there, but I can assure you, we will be back; not just for our EoTD meetup, but for our own little vacay!

Second year attending an axe meet at the campground and decided to stay this year. The little cabin was clean and furnished nicely. The bath house was very clean and kept up. I’ll definitely be staying again next year!

The campground was exactly what we were looking for. It was quite and we had a great site that was private where we could enjoy some great family time. The campground was located near Smoky Mountain National Park and other attractions. Susan was extremely helpful and never seemed like we were bothering her when we needed something. I highly recommend this campground if you are going to be in the area.

By far the best little campground in the Smoky Mountains. We have our annual get together there every year, and the staff is on the ball and friendly, and the amenities are well worth the modest cost of staying there. The bathhouse was recently renovated and is amazing for after a long day of hiking, paddling, or fishing. I'll be back later this year for rafting, and our group looks forward to our get together there on 2025!

I love staying at Smoky Mountain Meadows! It's a beautiful place with a nice bubbling creek, hot showers, and friendly staff. It's my favorite campground in the Nantahala gorge area. Off the beaten path yet convenient to Bryson City restaurants and grocery stores.

Place was very clean and organized. Bath house was super clean and well maintained. They clearly care about the property and appear to be making some updates. Easy access into and out of the campground and camp sites. Staff was available, friendly and very helpful. Highly recommend this campground.
