If you’re evacuating Hurricane Dorian by RV, the National Forest Service is offering reprieve by means of free camping.
We received this information from Smoky Mountain News. Campgrounds in the southern region of the National Forest Service is the only region providing this free camping service.
Here are the steps to take if this applies to you:
- Call the the National Forest, check availability & confirm your reservation (list of campgrounds at end of article)
- Let the camp host know once you arrive.
- Be safe & keep an eye on the Hurricane

These Pigeon Forge Campgrounds won’t be free, but they have high class amenties and full hook ups.
