Smoky Mountain Camping Made Easy

We have the biggest campsites in Townsend and the most big rig sites.

Even for the most seasoned drivers, navigating an RV or big rig through tight spaces can turn your relaxing camping trip into a stressful ordeal.  But at Big Meadow Family Campground, we believe a good host makes life easier for our guests.

That’s why we offer easy in, easy out pull-through campsites on concrete pads and patios.

We provide the largest campsites in Townsend, and the most big rig sites as well. Our full hook up sites include water, sewer, major cable, wifi, concrete pad & patio, and 30/50 AMPs to power anything you need.
