Episode 63: A Fairy Tail in the Forest

On this episode we talk about the Synchronous Fireflies that that live in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park – congregating in one of the most historical towns in the Southeast. In fact, this town is now a campground. Elkmont campground.  Elkmont used to be a logging town and was located where the existing Elkmont Campground now stands and was owned by the Little River Lumber Company. In about 1910, the company began selling land to individuals for the purpose of creating a private social club. The Appalachian Club. The Appalachian Club House was used as a lodge at first but soon members began building their own vacation cottages. Today, many of the cottages still are standing. Which makes for a amazing backdrop for a Fairy Tail in the Forest.

What we talk about:

  • One of the most memorable visits into the woods you will ever have
  • Rich in history and great hiking
  • Ten’s of Thousands
  • Reserve early
