The park offers several different types of campsites:
Campground Rules and Regulations
Includes food storage regulations, generator use and quiet hours
Firewood Regulations: Only heat-treated firewood that is bundled and certified by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) or a state department of agriculture may be brought into the park. Campers may also collect dead and down wood found in the park for campfires.
Certified heat-treated firewood is packaged and clearly marked with a state or federal seal. Heat-treated wood is available from a growing list of private businesses in communities around the park. Concessioners at Cades Cove, Smokemont, and Elkmont will provide heat-treated wood for sale during their operating season March-October.
Many local stores and businesses sell certified firewood. Select the campground above you'll be camping in to find nearby businesses. Additional information about this regulation.
