Cades Cove in The Great Smoky Mountain National Park

Cades CoveCades Cove is 6,800-acres nestled in a beautiful isolated valley located in the East Tennessee section of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It is a representative sample of this Park’s natural and cultural history as well as its recreational opportunities. Open fields lap against 5,500-foot mountain peaks. With more than 2.5 million visitors annually, it is the Park’s most popular destination. Most people come to Cades Cove to observe the wildlife such as white-tailed deer, black bear, raccoon, turkeys, woodchucks, and other animals. Cades Cove offers some of the best opportunities for wildlife viewing in the park.

I have been to Cades Cove and only seen one Elk the entire time I was there. But, there are ranger talks, homesteads, cemeteries, etc. I have also been to Cades Cove and seen 4 different bear sightings. Also see my blog post on Odis Abbott. This place is a definite for me every time I visit the area.
