Just Outside Our Gates...

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park Has It All

With thousands of miles of always-amazing, scenic views—now the world’s most visited vacation playground, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park has it all. It was here that America’s leaders of the 1920s-1940s fell in love with the sprawling majesty of our “Manifest Destiny” and decided that this was a National Treasure to be valued, preserved and open to all. The beauty found here was the spark that formed the first National Park and led to “America’s Best Idea” according to PBS’s acclaimed “The National Parks” documentary series.

From Maggie Valley, just outside the tree row of pines leading your vacation party out of the grounds of Pride RV Resort and Family Campground you’ll find endless “Stay and Play” options, rain or shine, spring, summer or fall. Pride is “Nice. Next to Nature.™” and we’re close to it all…
