DIRECTIONS:
From Exit 407 travel south on HWY 66 and connect to 441. Once in Gatlinburg you will turn left at stop light #3 unto Hwy 321 and will be on left hand side 13 miles from Gatlinburg. Or, you can take the Newport Exit #440 from I-40 and follow the signs for Hwy 321 and is about 17 miles to campground. This is known as the "back way" into Gatlinburg and will be faster then taking Exit 407. Easy access for big RV/Motorhomes.

Arrow Creek Campground is only 13 miles to the main Parkway for Gatlinburg. There are many attractions such as the Ripley's Aquarium, Ober Gatlinburg, Craft Loop, restaurants, gift shops, and museums.

Gatlinburg is rich in history. The first settler to the area was William Ogle. His log cabin can still be seen at Arrowmont Campus across from the Aquarium. In 1856, a post office was started in a general store owned by Radford Gatlin. Thus, the name "Gatlinburg" followed. This area is known for its natural beauty because it sets at the base of the Great Smoky Mountains. Ober Gatlinburg is a ski resort and amusement park on top of Cove Mountain and is accessible by road or aerial Tramway.

The main attraction for this area is of course the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. On June 15, 1934, Franklin Delano Roosevelt set aside 814 square miles of the Appalachian Mountains. It is the largest and most visited Park in the United States. The highest point is Clingman's Dome at 6,643 feet above sea level. Horseback riding, hiking, nature trails and scenic overlooks make this area so popular. Black Bear, Elk, and deer are a common site.

The mountains get there name from a natural haze. Hydrocarbons produced by the trees and vast vegetation combined with the high humidity and rainfall produce a bluish/smoky cast. Thus the Great "Smoky" Mountains.
