Visitor Information for the North Carolina
Jackson County - Wonderful Waterfalls
Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Jackson County serves as the eastern gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which attracts the most visitors annually of any national park. The 800-square-mile park, shared by North Carolina and Tennessee, is considered one of the most ecologically diverse of the parks in the national system.
The Great Smoky Mountains get their unusual name from the mist-like blue haze that often covers the peaks. This haze is produced by the moist environment of streams and waterfalls interacting with the thick vegetation. The Cherokee name for the area, Shaconage, means “place of blue smoke.”
The park provides many of the highest peaks in the Eastern U.S., with 16 mountains exceeding 6,000 feet. The Cherokee Indians were the earliest settlers in the Great Smokies.
Hiking, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, camping and rock climbing are very popular in the park, which is also the only one in the national system that does not charge an entrance fee.
