Glamping was a great experience. Tent was clean and comfortable and staff was helpful and friendly. The food was excellent! In addition, the bedding was comfortable and warm. We will definitely spread the word about glamping to our family and friends.

My husband and I had a great time at the Great Smoky Mountains location of Under Canvas. The staff were all AMAZING (especially Carly and Morgan)! The food is also above 5 stars, but is also pricey. The campfires at night are so fun and a great way to meet new people (and enjoy FREE s'mores)! Each night there is a free activity (live music, painting, trivia, etc) which also makes it super fun. The tents are nice - we stayed in the deluxe and really enjoyed it. Took us about 25-30 each day to get into the Park but that wasn't bad at all. Horseback riding nearby was fun as well. My only complain and reason for 4 stars is the price - ours came out to be $428 per night with tax and all which is very pricy for a tent / camping trip. Food is not included in that cost. However, the overall experience, staff, and food was above 5 stars. Would like to visit more locations if the price ever drops or there is a sale!

We just returned from Under Canvas in the Smokies and were a little disappointed. We visited the Under Canvas at Mount Rushmore in august and we absolutely loved it which is why we booked this trip. We had tent 12 which was in the back in the woods. Nice location- very isolated but we couldn’t believe the lack of exterior lighting! Every single light along the pathways was not functioning and it was quite treacherous returning to our tent in the dark- especially as you have to climb up a path to it. Would have also appreciated a broom for the outdoor deck as it was totally covered with wet leaves that made it extremely slippery- especially in the dark. Tent also smelled very mildewed- the tents in the woods do not get sun- and it just didn’t feel or smell very clean. The climate in the area is often wet and misty- so some gravel pathways to the tents would really help with the mud. We were shocked to learn this was one of the newer camps- it just felt older and run down. Sadly- it just didn’t live up to the expectations we had after visiting another camp.

4th location- always impressed

I Highly recommend under canvas. This was our 4th location staying with them and the hey are all so wonderful. I am not a camper but I love that this gives you the camping feel/ community without all the hassle. And there’s great food and wine and s’mores!!!

Had a great time exploring the Smoky Mountains. Great weather in late October. Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge are both very commercialized, over crowded and full of traffic jams. We avoided the towns and headed to the National Park every day we were there. We saw a bear and several herds of elk. We hiked and enjoyed beautiful scenery.
