At Econo Lodge Pigeon Forge, the sprawling beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is yours to discover and just a short distance from the hotel. Receiving over nine million visitors annually, the park is America’s most visited, boasting a landscape that combines natural and cultural history. Created on June 15, 1934, the park features lush forests and rich lowland valleys and separates Tennessee from North Carolina.
In over 500,000 acres of natural, undeveloped land, the Smoky Mountains is home to 124 species of trees, 1,500 flowering shrubs and plants, and 30 varieties of orchids and grasses. During your Smoky Mountain vacation, all of this is yours to discover via various walking trails. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park gets its name from the combination of two separate climates within the forest. The conifer forest on the mountain peaks combines with the deciduous forest in the lower elevations and the resulting collision of vegetation and pine tree oil creates a vapor that resembles smoke rising from the trees. Witness this majestic beauty for yourself while enjoying Smoky Mountain lodging with Econo Lodge Riverside.
Also bear witness to the abundance of wildlife within the park, comprised of over 60 species of mammals, 200 species of birds, 80 kinds of reptiles and amphibians, and 70 kinds of fish. Around 400 to 600 mighty black bears also live within the park.
