Whether your idea of camping entails “roughing it out” or simply enjoying being outdoors while surrounded with creature comforts, we have a feeling you will have a great time at Gatlinburg’s new campground experience, Camp LeConte Luxury Outdoor Resort.

We should clarify that calling this campground new is a bit misleading. The park was built in the 1960s as a basic campground, but closed in 2007 and is now undergoing extensive renovations to become a luxury resort with all the trimmings.

Patrons can currently choose from RV sites with complete hookups, primitive tents with¬†access to shared picnic tables, grills and fire pits, and the newest offering: luxury safari tents with covered porches and beds for children and adults. Beginning in the 2014 season, Camp LeConte will also offer fully-furnished luxury treehouses reminiscent of those found in the Australian Outback, as well as a secluded cabin. Check out the resort’s website for rates.

Amenities at Camp LeConte include free WiFi, vending machines laundry, bathhouse, convenience store and a heated pool.
