Roamstead is a brand new luxury campground that has opened outside of Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The accommodations were founded after Shannon Connolly and her family went on a camping trip through Utah and Colorado’s National Parks, where they found themselves disappointed with glorified parking lots or dirty campgrounds without amenities.

As an attempt to bridge the gap between “traditional campgrounds” and “boutique hotels,” Roamstead is a place for new campers, with a view to “reinvent roughing it.” Amenities at include a heated, saltwater pool, spa-style bathhouse, daily chocolate chip cookies, chef-prepared meals, cocktails, and regional beers. As well as offering tents, cabins, camper hookups, and yurts.
Roamstead strives to be an inclusive site for the seasoned adventurer or those who have never camped before, as well as being a safe space for LGBTQ+ individuals and other minority groups. They also offer educational opportunities for newer campers to better understand how to protect the planet. A portion of the money you spend on your stay goes to local nonprofits in the area.
