What about primitive camping? The Great Smoky Mountains National Park has you covered. Which type of primitive camping do you love most? They offer backcountry, frontcountry, group campgrounds, and horse camps.
If you just love hiking miles to your campsite then Backcountry is the way to go, but you do need a permit and advance reservations for overnight stays. Backcountry is suited for smaller groups, but you can get a special permit for groups with up to 12 people. Frontcountry camping is great for camping close to your car. There are 10 developed campgrounds in the park with restrooms, cold running water, and flush toilets. You can make reservations online and each site has their own restrictions, open/close dates, and fees. Similar to picnic grounds, they also provide a fire grate and picnic tables. If you’re planning a group campout, they offer groups of eight or more, located in Frontcountry. The horse camps are small campgrounds, accessible by vehicle that offer hitch racks for horses and primitive camping. If you want an accessible horse campsite with potable water and flush toilets, reserve at Big Creek.
