Outdoors Information

Pigeon Forge Campgrounds


Campgrounds are a perfect Pigeon Forge lodging option for visitors looking to be as close as possible to the great outdoors. Campgrounds in Pigeon Forge are located near the beautiful and majestic Great Smoky Mountains National Park and are still only minutes away from the outlet malls, dining, and music theatres that downtown Pigeon Forge has to offer. There are a variety of campgrounds available, from the campground operated by the national park, to independent campgrounds.

Many of the campgrounds in Pigeon Forge feature a full range of camping experiences. Aside from the traditional tent sites, most campgrounds offer RV hookups, small recreational vehicle accommodations, rustic cabins, and more.

Most Pigeon Forge campgrounds can accommodate recreational vehicles up to 40 feet in length. Other amenities can include on site swimming pools, laundry rooms, game rooms, snack machines, fishing ponds, bath houses, and playgrounds for children. Of course campers looking for a more rustic and natural experience can stay on the tent sites, which are surrounded by beautiful trees and are near hiking trails and waterfalls.

Another advantage of Pigeon Forge campgrounds is the trolley system. Most campgrounds are connected to a trolley that runs through the town, giving campers a quick and fun way to reach all of the shopping malls, gift shops, arcades, music theatres, and theme parks that Pigeon Forge has to offer.

Travelers looking for Pigeon Forge lodging who want to be as close as possible to the natural beauty of the wilderness are advised to check out the campgrounds. Anything from a secluded tent in the woods to accommodations for a comfortable and luxurious 40 foot RV is an option on these campgrounds.

Pigeon Forge Cabins Info provides detailed information on Pigeon Forge cabin rentals, chalets, hotels, motels, campgrounds, vacation packages, attractions, restaurants, real estate, and more. Pigeon Forge Cabins Info is the sister site of Gatlinburg Cabins Web.
