Hi. I am new to the message board, although I have been lurking for good info. We try to camp in the GSMNP a couple of times a year. Always trying different places because my brother and I want to fish every stream we can. Our wives love to hike to all the different falls. This year we are headed to the Tennessee side for the first time. First week of May for about 8-9 days. We are wondering what the consensus is on the campgrounds. Abrams Creek to far away? Cades Cove to crowded with small sites? Elkmont is huge but could we get some privacy? We like shade and quiet but don't really want to have to trek every morning to get somewhere. Any help would be appreciated and we look forward to stopping in to LRO for some local flies. Thanks in advance.
