The SMHC does not provide general Park information to the public.
To ask specific questions about trails, route planning, camping to help plan your outings,
please contact the Great Smoky Mountains National Park directly.
We are an all-volunteer group and do not have a staffed office to be able to answer Park tourism and use questions.

For information on current backcountry conditions,
the Appalachian Trail in the Smokies, and A.T. water availability updates,

on road and facilities closures and trails, shelter, and campsite closures and advisories.
