Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Ridge upon ridge of forest straddles the border between North Carolina and Tennessee in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. World renowned for its diversity of plant and animal life, the beauty of its ancient mountains, and the quality of its remnants of Southern Appalachian mountain culture, this is America's most visited national park.
Excellent park and no entry fees! You can spend days exploring park and trails. Amazing mountain scenery, water falls, wildlife, trails and much more. Visitor center/museum/gift store very nice too. Park rangers very nice and helpful. Roads and trails are very well kept up in entire park with lots of places to pull over to view scenery. Been coming here almost every year for past 35 years and still our family favorite vacation spot.
This place is absolutely amazing. You have to bring your family by to visit all of the fantastic things to do and see.God has truly blessed us with a gorgeous place to live. Plan your next vacation to visit us. There are so many fabulous things to do. I'm proud to be a part of the great piece of God's earth.. God bless you all.
How can you rate The Great Smoky Mountains any less than 5 stars? Amazing! One of the few national parks that has no entry fee. The land that is today Great Smoky Mountains National Park was once privately owned. Action by the Tennessee legislature would be required to lift this deed restriction if Great Smoky Mountains National Park ever wished to charge an entrance fee.
Very nice national parks. Great views and many historic sites. I have visited the National Park many times and during different seasons. During the summer many different wildflowers can be seen and of course in the fall the fall foliage is spectacular. There are so many interesting trails leading to historic sites and waterfalls. The 2 visitor center are also very informative.
Another incredible state park. So much history. So much to see. Great hiking, fishing, sight seeing. We just became Great Smoky Mountains Association members to support the work that they do. (We were informed that we will now have 10% discount at all state parks and many restaurants in the Smoky Mountain area. Such a deal.)
