General Guidelines

Peak season runs from Memorial Day Weekend – Labor Day Weekend.

Camping is an outdoor experience, therefore we do not give refunds due to whims of Mother Nature.

The management reserves the right to refuse service, limit length of stay, and the number person/vehicle per site and/or evict any person or party without refund. Park staff are not allowed to work on guests’ RVs or other personal equipment.

Yogi In the Smokies is in a rain forest, the mountains and the woods. The cabins are treated by a pest control company. Despite every effort, we cannot prevent bugs, insects, flying creatures, etc. from entering inside. To avoid attracting insects, please keep the doors and windows closed on the cabin. Avoid leaving food and sugary drinks outside the cabin. We are in a rural area.  Nature’s insects and bugs are all around us. There will be no refunds due to crawling bugs or flying insects inside or outside the cabin.

The following are prohibited on park property: fireworks, firearms, BB guns, Airsoft, pellet guns, drones, and metal detectors.

Personal golf carts are not allowed. No battery operated vehicles, motor driven cycles, bikes, or scooters allowed.

Children must always be supervised by their parent or guardian.

Any guest who willingly or negligently defaces, injures, destroys or removes resort property, or equipment, shall be held liable for the full replacement cost.

Absolutely no littering will be tolerated.

The gathering or cutting of live trees or other vegetation including flowers within the resort is prohibited.



Loud or offensive noises, rowdiness, or ill-mannered conduct will not be tolerated at any time.
