    We have been coming down to the Gatlinburg every year since 1979. We started with our two kids when they were small. We camp in Elkmont on a riversite. We love October. The colors are always good no matter what. The craftsman fair is unbeatable for variety and Tim Watson is the best! We have to make reservations in April and it is so worth it!!!
