Set in the "Peaceful Side of the Smokies," we offer some of the best trail riding experiences anywhere. Come along with your horses and visit the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Orchard Cove is an 160-acre farm that borders the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and is surrounded by mountains. You can ride through our gates a short distance into the Park's miles of scenic trails without trailering or public roads. You can look at a trails map in our links section. We are a new facility and are constantly improving. We have a new 20-stall barn, a 90' x 200' covered arena, and a bathhouse. Stalls are 10 x 12 and bedded with shavings upon arrival. Additional shavings, ice, and firewood are available for sale as needed. Stock trailers are available for rent if desired..
We offer 30-amp service and water at each site (no sewer). We do have a dump station. The sites also have picnic tables but no grills. The bathhouse is near the trailer sites.
The barn is next to the trailer sites. You will need to bring water and feed buckets (not provided because of sanitary reasons). You are welcome to take your horse to your campsite to saddle up. Our barn is constructed to provide the best sanitary conditions we can. The walls on two sides are solid concrete and washed after each horse. We have stall gates on the front and rear (not panels), and the open construction provides excellent ventilation. We have one-piece rubber mats over concrete floors. You are responsible for cleaning your stalls daily and stripping them upon departure. We provide a muck bucket and take the manure offsite. Additional shavings are available for sale at our cost. The arena is located next to the barn and is available for your use at no charge.
We are located about 3-4 miles from town where you will find several restaurants and a decent grocery store. We are 30-40 minutes from Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, where there is abundant shopping, entertainment, and food. Our barn was built so you would feel comfortable leaving your horse.
We are a small facility and are constantly trying to improve. We live at the farm and try to help in any way.
