I am bringing Gaintfish up next weekend. I tried to get the company chalet but the owner may be using it. Gaintfish is fresh off a broken leg (he is doing well, back to running on pavement but no trail running yet) so backcountry camping might be pushing it. I tried to reserve a cmpsite in Elkmont but the online reservation system is not working. What are my chances of getting a campsite coming in thur evening?

Vern, call RIGHT NOW and try to make a reservation. I had to cancel and it might still be available as I JUST got off the phone for the cancellation. The reservation started Thursday evening and went through Saturday night. It was for Elkmont... Phone #1-877-444-6777... Hope this helps!!!

Oh yeah, I can almost guarantee that there will be no sites available w/out a reservation...

You might get lucky and get one of the walkin sites up against the road....if you are in a tent these are not so bad and can be had without a reservation.

Tell ya what, it's busy all around....the leaf peakers. I couldn't get a room at our usual place in Maggie Valley for next weekend - had to go all the way to Franklin, N.C. Next year, I'll introduce the girls to camping - one year older.

I would prefer to stay in the Chalet. full size beds, warm showers, dish washer,color cable, and free. But even if I do get the chalet Gaintfish wants to camp. Oh well when I was a teenager I would do the samething. And I do enjoy camping as long as there are not a loud party crowd net door. PLus I can get up and be on some of my favorite streams in a few minutes.
