Pigeon Forge is a great destination for large groups. The exciting Smoky Mountain town is home to dozens of family-friendly attractions, a wide variety of restaurants, and many great shops – all situated within the gorgeous setting of the Great Smoky Mountains. No matter why you’re here – whether it’s a family reunion, church retreat, girls’ getaway, or any large group getaway – you’ll find plenty to keep everyone entertained. You can take a tour of the Titanic Museum Attraction, check out hands-on exhibits at WonderWorks, spend a day riding roller coasters and playing at Dollywood, or walk around at The Island for a day of shopping, games, moonshine, and great food. All are great options for a large group looking for fun. Pigeon Forge also has many dinner shows that can seat a large group, along with the Tanger Outlets which are home to shops that offer something for everyone, from toys, electronics, and clothing to kitchenware, art, and sporting goods. The community calendar is also jam-packed with events year-round, including festivals, shows, parades, and more. And of course, just down the road from Pigeon Forge is the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which has more than 800 miles of trails to explore. There are endless opportunities for hiking, biking, picnicking, horseback riding, and scenic drives in the park, ensuring that no matter what size your group, you’ll find plenty to do for a weekend or a week away.
But with all that entertainment, you’ll also need a place to stay. Hotels are cramped, don’t provide many amenities, and cause large groups to break up. Everyone will have to be spread out across rooms and even floors, and there aren’t good places for getting together to play games, eat, or just hang out. That’s where our large group cabins come in. They’re loaded with everything you could want for a large group getaway, and they’re infinitely more comfortable than a hotel. Our large group lodges can sleep anywhere from 16 to 46, accommodating almost any size or type of group.
