Need help with a location to camp.

With the 2016 Fall Colors a few months out. I was looking for a camping location in the Smokey Mountains to use as a base camp for photography. Any and all assistance would be much appreciated.

In return, I'm willing to offer photographers the advice of locations in Southwest Florida during the winter months.

How long will you be staying? The closest state park which will be the best rate by far is Panther Creek State Park outside of Morristown, TN. It has been remodeled and they have some full hookup sites now. Also you can make reservations on line for up to a year in advance. Another nice state park is Day Crockett Brithplace State Park outside of Greeneville, TN, again full hookups and an online reservation system. Did you want TN or NC?

Assume you meant '2015 Fall Colors a few months out' but nonetheless, that's just plan cruel. At this time of year, fall colors and the impending winter can never, ever be far enough away!

Blue Ridge and Smokey Mountains

We are Canadians/Winter Texans and are always looking for different ways to head to Texas in the Fall. In 09, we decided on the Blue Ridge/Smokey Mountain route. Since we had a 38' Class A, we found campgrounds along I81 and used the toad to tour the area. One of our favourite campgrounds was Mayberry Campground in Mount Airy, NC. Beautiful area, great touring roads and fall colours. There are also several good campgrounds around Asheville, NC. When travelling we most always use PA and Good Sam parks after having checked them out on RV Park Reviews. So far, so good. Have a great trip.

Last year we stayed at Indian Creek CG in Cherokee, NC and enjoyed it. Near the park, towns & TN.

Enjoy. From a PA photographer

Camp Sites

You may want to check out the KOA in Cherokee,NC. Great mountainous area around the Smokies.

I would suggest staying on the East side around Maggie Valley, Cherokee, and Bryson City. I have stayed many times in Creekwood Farms RV park and once in Bryson City at Smokey Mountain Meadows. Close to the Park, Blue Ridge Parkway and several good mountain roads with old farms and such for back drops. Better make reservations early as they get booked up. October is the peak in that area.
