Mile High Camping Trip

This was our second year to camp at Mile High Campgrounds in Cherokee, North Carolina. It is a very primitive campground with no power/water hookups. Mile High is located on the Cherokee Indian reservation and has some of the most beautiful views of the Smoky Mountains.
We like to go in July/August because the weather at Mile High is incredible. It feels like a perfect fall day up on the mountain ! The campground closes mid October so the summer months are the best time to go.
We camped out with lots of family this time and had fun just hanging out by the fire, playing the guitar. We brought our camper, but others brought a tent.
Hammocks are a must when we camp.
We saw lots of Elk at the campground. They usually show up around dinner time and gave us a big show.
We loved to just hang out at the campsite, but there's a lot to do around Cherokee. One of my favorite things to do is visit the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

We hiked to Clingman's Dome, visited the Historic Mountain Farm Museum in the park and hiked to the historic Mill.
