VERAVISE OUTDOOR LIVING
Yes, the Smokies can be crowded, especially during the peak season
Smoky Mountain is at its busiest during the summer months (June, July, and August) and fall (October)
If you want to avoid the crowds as much as possible, visit during the winter (January & February) or spring (March) before everyone else visit for spring break.
Go before 10 am, much better if you can go before dawn. Also, wildlife are more active than later in the day, and the weather is a lot nicer and cool.
There are plenty of lesser-known spots and hidden gems in the park that offer just as much beauty and tranquility as the more popular areas.
Cabin rentals in the Smoky Mountains are the perfect way to avoid the crowds and enjoy some peace and quiet.
To avoid crowds, it is best to avoid visiting the Smokies during the holidays and big events like Christmas, Thanksgiving, Memorial Day, and 4th of July.
