          The Cosby Campground is one of the nicest and least crowded of the campgrounds in the national park, especially compared to the nearby Greenbrier which is just off hwy 321. It is open seasonally (April 10- Oct. 31) and is far enough away from Gatlinburg...More

          Is the owner always a miserable and ride wretch? I stopped in to inquire about a year round campsite he had placed on Craigslist,that was available in June, and was so rudely talked to and screamed at! He answered the door 'what do you want lady?? We are closed!" come back in May, you and I could both be dead by then, why would I want to talk about something available in 6 months?? Oh I don't know maybe because YOU just placed an ad for something that would be available in six months?? I wouldn't give this rude owner a dime of my money!! Look elsewhere!!

          The NP website says there are showers available outside the camp, which I assume means somewhere in town (or another campground) offers to let people shower for a fee. Is this actually the case or am I misinterpreting the NP website?

          There are no showers in any of the campgrounds in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. There are many campgrounds outside the park you may shower for a fee.

          Are the hiking trails at the Cosby campground a part of the Cherokee National Forest or Smokey Mountain National Park? Are dogs allowed on the trails at Cosby Camp ground?

          Trails are part of the Smokey MT NP. Snake Den Ridge Trail is Beautiful, Awesome views at the top. Dogs on leashes ok.
