Winter Road Status
During winter, roads in the park may close due to snow and ice, especially at night when water from melting refreezes on roads. For road status information please call (865) 436-1200 ext. 631 or follow road updates at http://twitter.com/SmokiesRoadsNPS. More »
Elkmont Campground Water
Due to water line construction in the Elkmont Campground, drinking water will not be available in campground sinks. Containers of drinking water will be provided to campers upon check-in. We expect full water service to be restored by March 19.
Job openings are listed at http://www.usajobs.gov
You must apply for a specific position as it becomes available, rather than sending a general resume to the park to hold for future openings. The forms necessary to apply for positions are listed in each individual job announcement. All forms, and directions for completing them, are also available at the website.

If your resume or application does not provide all the information requested in the job vacancy announcement and in the following list, you may lose consideration for a job.
