3. Great for Cooking Dinner

Of course, all of our cabins in Gatlinburg come with fully equipped kitchens. For something a little different, however, you can cook dinner over an open flame. A fire pit is perfect for roasting hot dogs, preparing kebabs, making popcorn, or a variety of other tasty dishes and treats. For fresh ingredients, swing by a local grocery store or visit the Gatlinburg Farmers Market on Saturday mornings at 849 Glades Road (mid May thru early October).

4. Campfire Fun for the Whole Family

Having a fire pit on vacation will give you the chance to do some traditional campfire activities with your family. Telling ghost stories, singing songs, and playing games like “telephone” or “twenty questions” are all great ways to spend an evening during your getaway in Gatlinburg.

5. Make S’mores the Old Fashioned Way

While making s’mores in a fireplace or on the grill can be fun, nothing compares to the real deal. Roasting marshmallows over a fire pit is an integral part of any summer vacation, and your kids will have a blast doing it just steps away from their cabin. You can’t go wrong with graham crackers, but if you want to try something new, consider putting the melted chocolate and marshmallow inside of an Oreo sandwich cookie to make a “s’moreo”!
