Smoky Mountain Elkmont Campground, LeConte, and Fireflies 2012

Jump to last reply

Planning a trip for June 7 for long weekend trip to Smoky Mountains. We plan on camping at Elkmont 2 or 3 days and probably hiking/spending the night at LeConte Lodge one night there.

So, is there a best camping spot at Elkmont? We will be most likely tent camping. Do the fireflies congregate around the river area or do you have to hike a bit to see them or what? Is June7-12 a good time to catch the fireflies?

I have my name in the hat already for LeConte. I will reserve my spot at Elkmont the day it becomes available. I have contacted the Park Service, but they only answer my question with generic answers.
