Things to do:

 Viewing Elk-
The best times to view elk are usually early morning and late evening. Elk may also be active on cloudy summer days and before or after storms. Enjoy elk at a distance, using binoculars or a spotting scope for close-up views. Approaching wildlife too closely causes them to expend crucial energy unnecessarily and can result in real harm. If you approach an animal so closely that it stops feeding, changes direction of travel, or otherwise alters its behavior, you are too close!

Most of the elk are located in the Cataloochee area in the southeastern section of the Smoky Mountains National Park. The easiest way to reach Cataloochee is:  turn right leaving campground, just before I-40, turn left onto Cove Creek Road and follow signs 11 miles into Cataloochee valley. Allow at least 45 minutes to reach the valley once you turn onto Cove Creek Rd.

Wheels Through Time Motorcycle Museum-

62 Vintage Lane, Maggie Valley, NC

This museum hosts the world’s premier collection of rare American motorcycles, memorabilia and a unique collection of custom motorcycles.  There are over 300 motorcycles in this collection.  The museum is located just a ten minute drive from the campground. Directions:  From campground, turn right on 276 and as soon as possible U turn to opposite direction toward Maggie Valley. In approximately 5 miles Bear right on US 19.  Watch for signs.

Church Street Art and Craft Show-

This is the 35th annual art and craft show sponsored by downtown merchants and the town of Waynesville.  The show, which runs from 10 AM until 5 PM on Saturday features a juried art show and art and craft sales.  There will be an art and craft marketplace, food, drinks, music, clogging teams and two stages featuring mountain music.  This is just off Main Street in Waynesville which is about 15 minutes from the campground.
