Sleeping

There is one developed campground in Cades Cove. A half-dozen backcountry camping locations can be found along trails in the mountains surrounding the cove. Camping at a backcountry site requires a reservation and permit (www.nps.gov/grsm/planyourvisit/backcountry-camping.htm). The closest commercial lodgings are in Townsend, about 9 miles from Cades Cove.
