Can u go see & see the fireflies anytime ? I have read they come out mostly at the end of May / first couple weeks of June. Can anyone go ? Thanks !
We're staying in a cabin close to the Elkmont campgrounds in July. We'd love to go tubing on the Little River at Elkmont, but I see that the gov website says that they are exclusively an overnight campground, with no day facilities. Is there a prohibition on parking at the camp and tubing down the river for awhile?
We didn’t make it in via the lottery but did get a campsite during the fireflies week (June 7-14). We have one large tent and we’re hoping to have 2 families go (5 adults and 4 children.) I saw that the campsite reservation page said we CAN have 2 cars but supposed to have 6 people total. Are they strict on the number of people? We’ve been wanting to see this for years and years! Help
How strict are they about having all of a tent on the tent pad at Elkmont? I have an oddly shaped larger tent that is unlikely to fully fit on a tent pad. The policies section on recreation.gov suggest they are very strict, but pictures of individual sites on recreation.gov sometimes show tents off pads (e.g. site G14), so I am not sure what actually is allowed.
We have been trying to book a river site in D section for the last 3 years (in July). We have friends helping at 10:00 the day the site comes open. We are ALWAYS too late. We start trying at 9:59 but we never have a chance. It comes up reserved everytime. Are we doing something wrong? We go to Recreation.gov.. Any tips would be really appreciated. Thanks
Have never really been camping, planning on tent camping here for Thanksgiving. Any tips, suggestions, etc. will be appreciated. Also, since it's a holiday and near the end of the camping season for Elkmont, will anyone else be there? Don't really want to be the only ones there. Would be a bit spooky. : -)
