November in the Smokies

Fall in the Smokies is far from over at Halloween. The temperatures may be dropping, but there’s still plenty of fun to be had in the Smokies! Since Camp Riverslanding is nestled away just minutes from the excitement in Pigeon Forge, here are some points for your to-do list if you’re visiting us in November:

1. No Pigeon Forge to-do list is complete without some mention of Dollywood, so let’s kick this off right! Dollywood is amazing year round, but absolutely magical during the holiday season. The price of admission is the same, but you and yours can experience Santa’s workshop, incredible light displays, and (of course) the rides, crafts, and food! Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Christmas starts November 4th and lasts through January 1st.

2. Every year, all of Pigeon Forge twinkles with holiday spirit, thanks to Winterfest. This year’s event begins November 4th and runs through the end of February 2018. The whole city is covered in dazzling Christmas lights which can be viewed via trolley tours and there are plenty of other winter wonderland activities to take advantage of during Winterfest!

3. Make this year’s Thanksgiving a Smoky Mountain Thanksgiving (you’ll be thankful you did!) Skip the stress of making your own 5 course meal for the whole family, and take your pick of incredible restaurant options in Pigeon Forge, including all the “dinner and a show” choices! Dolly’s Dixie Stampede has shows on Thanksgiving.

4. If a little cold weather doesn’t dampen your camping spirit, bundle everybody up and hit the trailhead. Hiking in November gives you incredible views of the world-renowned Fall colors of the Smoky Mountains, and that might be our favorite November opportunity! There’s nothing more rewarding than snuggling up around a campfire after a long day of hiking.

If you want to do something a little different this Fall, head for Camp Riverslanding. We can’t wait to spend November with you! Check out booking options here:
