Hey there everyone, Dalton Maddox here!
As I approach far more days of camping than likely any reasonable person would, I thought it might be handy to talk a little about the joys of backwoods camping. While we here at Coonhound focus more on vehicle accessible campsites for our business, we greatly enjoy getting off the grid now and again.
Backwoods camping requires a little more work and planning, and certainly isn't for everyone. Still the effort is well worth it. There is something magical, if not surreal, about becoming nearly isolated in nature. Being able to truly relax and take it all in can be a deeply peaceful experience that will almost certainly relieve the work day pressures of day to day life.
Not sold yet? That's alright I enjoy a good challenge.
For me personally one of the biggest advantages to hiking, backpacking, or canoeing to one of these backwoods campgrounds is the privacy. As my counterparts have mentioned, and I am sure many of you have experienced, summer camping gets busy. The Smokies are an absolute hot spot for warm weather fun. While this brings in a ton of great opportunities for enjoying your days off, relaxation can often become difficult. Well getting a little further into nature can alleviate this and allow for a more peaceful and private approach to camping.
While I fully understand this won't be for everyone, and I wouldn't dare think that one must backpack to enjoy amazing camping, keep these options in mind next time you're planning an excursion. Plus, if you think this sounds fun but just don't know what would fit your style, contact us and we will work to find the right campsite for you regardless of if you decide to camp with Coonhound.
Lastly just remember the great quote about "choosing the woods less camped" ... or something like that anyways.
