The Great Smoky Mountains are very kid-friendly. This is a place where you don't see kids on electronic devices (no cell-service in the park!). You'll see kids being kids. You'll see them in the river swimming, or floating down the river in a tube. You may see them skipping rocks in the river or riding their bikes down mountain roads. In other words, it will take you back to another time. It definitely brings a smile to your face!
The GSM has wonderful programs for kids during the spring, fall, and summer. They have a Junior Park Ranger Program that offers wonderful things for the kids to do to learn about the Park. They have paired with UT to offer a "Smoky Mountain Field School".
