The Great Outdoors RV Resort

Our resort is located in Franklin (Macon County) in the Smoky Mountains of Western NC. We are happy to be here, and you will be, too.

The park is surrounded by the Great Smokies and the Blue Ridge Parkway. We are located about two-hours north of Atlanta, an hour south of Asheville, and close to Cherokee. We have EZ access, big rig sites within a wooded setting with beautiful mountain range views and spectacular sunsets.

We are proud to be named as one of the top 100 parks inspected in the US by Good Sam’s for 2017. Our Good Sam’s rating is a stellar 10/10*/10.

We are well-equipped for rallies, and many rally groups have visited us numerous times. Our clubhouse features two full kitchens, restroom facilities, wide-screen TV, WII entertainment system, rocking chair porch, and fabulous mountain views.

We are excited about a major renovation to our park: our WiFi was upgraded from a 1.5 MG to a 50 MG. This renovation allows visitors who are staying at our campsites or cabins to easily connect to cable and WiFi, and enjoy all the comforts of home. Our new WiFi speed is unheard of in this part of the mountains. These extra amenities are included in our campground prices. Our prices are very competitive for such an upscale venue.
