DIRECTIONS:
From exit 407 travel south on HWY 66 and connect to 441. Once in Pigeon Forge you will turn right on West Mill Creek Road by the Toni Motor Inn/Texas Roadhouse past stop light #8. Follow for about 3/4 mile and resort will be on your left. Somewhat easy access for big RV/Motorhomes. Or, turn right at stop light # 10 and follow to West Mill Creek Road (bottom of hill) and turn right and resort will be on your right.

Mill Creek Resort is off the Pigeon Forge Parkway but close to Dollywood, Dixie Stampede, Splash Country and numerous dinner Theaters and shows. There are many outlet malls, shopping and restaurants nearby.

Pigeon Forge got its name from an iron forge built by Issac Love around 1820 along the Little Pigeon River. The river got its name from all the passenger pigeons that frequented the banks of the river. The forge was built in vicinity of the Old Mill along the Little Pigeon River. The mill can still be visited near stop light # 7. Due to Pigeon Forges location to the Smoky Mountains, it made it obvious to become a resort/tourist area. Dollywood theme park is one of the biggest attractions.

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.

Fuel Treatment, Save Fuel

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.
