If you are coming from the east do NOT go through Pigeon Forge unless you want to stop and see the attractions. There will be a LOT of traffic and the road is very windy. Take exit 432A and at Sevierville continue straight on the 441.

Since half of our campers come from the greater Raleigh area we are offering a charter bus from RALEIGH to/from camp for only $75 per camper.  Seats are limited so let us know if you want to reserve a seat.
