We have participated in a few pot luck dinners, but we haven't made to the Dutch oven day. Thank you for the beautiful place to enjoy family  memories for now and years to come.”

“Amazing views! Peace and quiet! Wonderful time surrounded by nature!

This was our third year at Mile High Campground and we plan on returning every year. The hard part is deciding which beautiful sight we want to stay in. 

The views are spectacular- like no other campground we've ever been in! We especially like the piece and quiet in the campground and the fact that we are surrounded by nature.  

It's a bit of a drive to get there but so worth it.”

“The views are breathtaking.” 

Sherry Rogers

“I fell in love with the smokies when I camped there as a kid and have camped in these old mountings dozens of times and I believe part of my soul lives there now. I travel there as often as possible but I’ve only stayed on the TN side. Last year at Labor Day I had a weekend from work and wanted to camp. I called over 40 campgrounds and all were booked. Mile High had a cancellation the hour before and I took a chance on something new, NC Smokies camping. 

I checked in late at night but all the stars, so many, easily making out the Milky Way. In the morning the view took my breath away and I immediately booked a long weekend for this Labor Day. The people are awesome and kind, the rustic camping is just modern enough to satisfy the toughest critic. The water is some of the best I’ve ever had. I can’t wait until I get up there again. 

The last morning I saw 4 elk and one fawn walk through the campground, 30 feet from me. Wow. A place from heaven.”

Jeremiah Patton

“Mile High Campground is the best! My family and friends have made many incredible memories there. It is truly the most beautiful, peaceful and, relaxing places I have been.”

Lisa Wheeler

“We went here a couple of years ago n loved it. We tent camped for the week and everyone there was so friendly. It's so hard to find tent camping sites anymore and we loved the view from our site. If we ever venture down there in the future we will def be staying here and "roughing it" again. Thanks again!”

Jamie Schenk and Ryan Henion

As we call it… our happy place

“We discovered Mile High the first year it opened in 1998 while out riding around. We were camping in Cherokee and immediately went back and packed up and came straight back up the mountain. We camp at Mile High at least 3 times a year and happy to share it with our grandkids now. So many new friends we have met over the years at MH and so many memories we will always cherish.”

Cindy and Jon Rochester

“To me, it is the #1 campground in the world. Every time I leave I always leave a piece of my heart and always dream of my next trip….My little piece of heaven.” 

Ken Wheeler, Decatur Ga

“We've been coming to Mile High for over 10 years now and have to say, this is the absolute best camping experience in the Smoky Mountains! MHC has wonderful and very friendly staff, reasonably priced and roomy sites, spectacular views and some of the best wildlife close-ups available. We've never had a negative experience while camping at Mile High!! Even the weather can't bring you DOWN once you get UP at Mile High. We have recommended MHC to everyone we know and even some we don't know.  

Thank you for every wonderful visit and please continue to keep up the amazing work. Joe would be so proud! Your hard work and dedication to his legacy are paying off for everyone!

We love you MHC!!!”

“The website is great.  Best job yet.  Will see you all in August.  
Great pics by Scott Ramsey.   I hope to get some in August.  I have been using Balsam Mountain Campground in the past but my conversation with Scott Ramsey at your campground last summer convinced me to give it a try.   I have suggested it to those hiking with me this year to consider it also.   I shared your link on a couple of Facebook pages..”

Dale Potter


“I brought my daughter here for her first camping trip last fall. It was cold. It rained. We forgot our frying pan, but she is now hooked on Mile High Campground! The views were amazing! The neighbors there were great! We will definitely be back for more views and adventures!”

Jim Davies

“This is by far the BEST campground ever! It doesn’t matter if it’s in the middle of summer and 100° everywhere else. It’ll be nice and cool up at that elevation. The views are spectacular!  I come up here often, even in between camping trips, just to see the views. And of course, the icing on the cake is the elk. Such majestic creatures. I so enjoy their presence here. Hot showers are a bonus too. Won’t find any in the National Park, but Mile High is just a few feet outside the park boundaries. You will not find a campground which such roomy and private sites anywhere around. They are #1 on my list.”


“We can't wait to visit in August!”   

Nicole Thompson
