At the edge of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park in North Carolina, Pride RV Resort sits among some of the most rugged and beautiful country in the Eastern United States along one of the most scenic routes in the world.

            Nestled in the heart of Maggie Valley, Pride is perhaps the perfect camping vacation destination. The simple drive itself along the Blue Ridge Parkway will be one highlight of your trip you’ll hardly forget.  The gently winding road skims the mountains for more than 250 miles between the Virginia border in the north and the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park near Cherokee just a few miles west of Pride resort. Here you’ll also find Qualla Boundary, the 56,572-acre Cherokee Indian reservation, home of the eastern band of Cherokee Indians who graciously offer legendary trout fishing on their reservation. Welcome to a time and place well-preserved.

            Many say that the Maggie Valley area is the most beautiful part of the Great Smokey Mountains. Only 25 minutes from the east entrance to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and Harrah’s Cherokee Casino. Thirty miles east is Asheville, NC, the home of the famous and fabulous Biltmore Estate that must be a part of your trip.

            Maggie Valley is the center for clogging, the mountain dance that evolved from old Scotch and Irish reels and jigs. Visit the Stompin’ Ground dance hall here and you won’t be able to keep your feet still.  In addition to it’s natural and singular beauty, Maggie Valley has a special charm. The feel of a small town sitting among the presence of a giant range of mountains. Stroll, shop, go antiquing—do whatever it is you like on your time. If you’re feeling sporty instead, visit Cataloochee Ski Resort just minutes from Pride Resort.

            History buffs can visit the Museum of the Cherokee Indian or the Oconaluftee Indian Village, a live re-creation of an ancient Cherokee community  only 25 minutes away from Pride Resort. Also in Cherokee, a summertime outdoor drama called “Unto These Hills” relives Cherokee Indian history.

            Another must for visitors is a trip to Clingman’s Dome in neighboring Swain County. It is the highest mountain in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, second highest in Eastern America, and the highest point on the Appalachian Trail.

            And there’s more. More than you could ever imagine until you visit us here in the Smokies. Please see our Friends of Pride links at left for a world of entertaining options all only a short drive from Pride Resort.
