Great Smoky Mountains National Park General: 19 reviews and 32 photos
Favorite thing: Smoky has one of the better concentrations of black bears in the lower 48 states, with estimates sometimes climbing to 1,700 animals. Park rangers almost exclusively pin a visitor's best hopes of spotting one by driving the Cades Cove loop on the Tennessee side, which is roughly 30 miles west of the Sugarland Visitor Center just south of Gatlinburg. Unfortunately, though I willingly accepted their advice, the most commonly occurring animal in the Cove was the white-tailed deer.
