The photo below contains GPS coordinates to a free campsite in the Nantahala National Forest in North Carolina, very near the Great Smokey Mountais National Park. Check out the location in the image using the iOS Photo Investigator App. There were a variety of places to choose from in the vicinity, and only a few people drove by.
This is definitely a bargain campsite to check out the National Park. Although the park was shutdown during my visit, as a result of the Government shutdown. How annoying to be passing such an amazing place, and to be unable to enjoy it to the fullest. Fortunately, the highway through the park was open, and we were able to park and walk over a gate to check out a few beautiful views. Ironically, a man with a bumper sticker that read "Repeal Obamacare" was also locked out. Cheers buddy!
