This resort area falls just outside of the Gatlinburg city limits, but it enjoys a prime location in the heart of the Smoky Mountains. Some of the best assets of this area are the number of main roadways you can access.

  • The Spur – The main road that connects Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge – US Hwy 321.
