The Smokies has a primitive 211 site campground called Elkmont. Nearby is an old set of buildings that were used in the early 1900's as a weekend retreat. Some buildings are being demolished due to collapse and rot. There are about twelve that are being saved. We took a drive to see it. When the leaves are off the trees, you can see a lot more of the mountains and things that are hidden in the trees. Another plus is the lack of traffic and tourists that are here in the summer.
