Pride RV Resort Maggie Valley
At the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina, Pride RV Resort—Maggie Valley is located among some of the most rugged and beautiful country in the Eastern United States and one of the most scenic routes in the world to get you there. A simple drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway is worth the visit to the resort and area. The gently winding road skims the mountains for more than 250 miles between the Virginia border in the north and the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park near Cherokee just a few miles west of the resort. This is also the area where you’ll find Qualla Boundary, the 56,572-acre Cherokee Indian reservation, home of the eastern band of Cherokee Indians. Outstanding trout fishing is offered on the reservation. In the town of Cherokee, travelers can visit the Museum of the Cherokee Indian, a tribute to the Cherokee culture and history, and the Oconaluftee Indian Village, a live re-creation of an ancient Cherokee community. Also in Cherokee, a summertime outdoor drama called “Unto These Hills” relives Cherokee Indian history. The town is also home to Harrah’s Casino. Just a few miles west of the resort is the town of Maggie Valley. This mountain town is the center for clogging, the mountain dance that evolved from old Scotch and Irish reels and jigs. Visit the Stompin’ Ground dance hall here, and you won’t be able to keep your feet still. A “must” for visitors is a trip to Clingman’s Dome in neighboring Swain County. It’s the highest mountain in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, second highest in Eastern America, and highest point on the Appalachian Trail.
