Looking for dog friendly campground we have 2 labs. looking for a campground that will allow us to leave dogs in our trailer when we go vist the local tourest traps and have a place for them to swim.They sometimes bark when someone comes to our trailer.Our trailer is a 28 footer 1 slide.
Not sure just where you are planning to visit in the area, but if you get down in to NC, you may want to check out 4PawsKingdom.com, as it's geared towards dogs (and even frowns on kids) They have Agility rings and lots of dog activities.
Nothing but positive reviews, except for those folks with young kids....hey, it's for dogs, not kids!
Very few Campgrounds have strict laws concerning dogs being left alone or barking. That is usually the domain of RV parks etc. Without knowing where in the Smokys you're planning on going hard to recommend a particular one.
Good luck / Skip

We camp in the Pigeon Forge area quite often. Most are dog friendly. Never read any rules as to swimming in the streams. Strict rules are, to not leave pets unattended, outside or even inside if they are barkers. Everyone carries their poop bags for disposal. The only problem we've had as some folks let their pet wonder off course and pee on the grass by our unit. That's no big deal. We just stay off the grass in that spot.
