Elkmont began as a logging town with the Little River Logging Company having its base in the community. Only a couple of years after the establishment of Elkmont, the logging company began to sell parcels of land. Thus began the "Resort Era". Soon after that, a hotel was built (the "Wonderland Park Hotel "). After the founding of the National Park Service, the ownership of the cabins eventually fell into the Parks' hands.
Today the main attraction in Elkmont (besides the nature!) is the campground. The facilities at Elkmont are much like Cades Cove: no water or electricity at the campsites. This is one place we haven't camped yet, but I hope to sometime soon.
