Great Smoky Mountains National Park 

The legendary ridgelines painting the horizon in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park has been likened to the completely natural wilderness of the Canadian Bush. So where exactly in Appalachia does a Chattanooga driver find the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains National Park? Formally, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park encompasses over 800 square miles along the border of North Carolina and Tennessee, though the mountain range continues beyond the park established in 1934. 

Lodging at the Great Smoky Mountains

Those from the Ooltewah area looking to make a long weekend out of exploring the Great Smoky Mountains will find there are many ways to stay. From classic Smoky Mountains camping to even Airbnb Smoky Mountains options, your family can choose to have a rustic and secluded experience or a cozy and comfortable one.

Of all the Smoky Mountain getaways, a really special spot is the only lodge inside the park, the LeConte Lodge. As the name implies, it’s situated at the top of Mt. LeConte and is the highest guest lodging option in the eastern U.S. It is only accessible by foot— so avid hikers are encouraged to check out this remote sleeping shelter. But since you can’t get there in your Lexus SUV, the LeConte Lodge may be a bit more rustic than you’re looking for on a quick weekend trip. Know there are many Smoky Mountains Airbnb options and hotels in the surrounding towns.
