Welcome to Deer Springs RV Park!

“Welcome to Deer Springs, the Best RV Parks near Franklin NC and the Smoky Mountains. We offer unique RV Sites with a touch of outdoor luxury not found at other RV parks. 

It is important to note that as of August 18th, 2023, all visitors to Deer Springs RV Park must be 18 or older.

Deer Springs is a privately owned and gated RV park located in the Smoky Mountains, 13 miles West of Franklin, NC. Moreover, we are a pet-friendly RV park with a focus on providing large RV Sites in a comfortable and unique setting. Our park has been designed for ‘self-contained RV’s,’ and as such, there is no separate bathhouse on site.

Deer Springs offers a tranquil and nature-centric experience for RV enthusiasts everywhere.”

Internet and Cell Phone Service

Being remote, there is no cell service in the area.  But we have good Internet service, so if you set your cell phone to “WiFi calling” you should have no issues making normal cell phone calls. 

What is Wi-Fi Calling?  Wi-Fi calling routes your voice calls and text messages through a Wi-Fi network rather than a cellular network. Wi-Fi calling is ideal in situations where cellphone service is unavailable or unreliable, and typically provides higher-quality voice calls than cellular networks.

Like to Hike?

Deer Springs RV Park is uniquely situated between two Appalachian Trail entrance points, giving you access to a moderate 3.5 mile hike, or longer, if you prefer.   

Leave your vehicle at one end and we’ll drop you off at the other end.  When you end your hike your vehicle will be waiting where you dropped it off. 

We hope to see you soon, and thank you from Deer Springs RV Park in Franklin NC.

Coming soon - The Wilderness Loop!
