Abandoned Town In The Smokies

There’s a story going around with a misleading title. It says a hiker “discovers” an abandoned town in the Smoky Mountains and photographs it. That’s like saying he discovered the visitor’s center or the park itself. The abandoned town (actually a club) is well known. A section of it can be driven through by the Elkmont Campground in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The rest of it can very easily be hiked/walked through.

Its a very cool area to explore and I did so myself (most recently last year). Check it out yourself the next time you’re in the area. Be respectful of the area so that others can explore it as well and keep in mind that the park would rather you didn’t enter the structures- both for your safety and the safety of the buildings.

  1. Some awesome photography…I feel like I was there. I believe I drove through the area but was on a tight schedule and didn’t have time to stop and explore the “park”. Thanks for “sharing”. Ruth Ann
