Wilderness at the Smokies --Tennessee's largest waterpark resort and family adventure center!

We recently returned from a family vacation to the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. It's where my family vacationed when I was little and Craig and I have loved  vacationing with our kids there over the last few years. Whether you love the outdoors or are a family that needs to keep busy with activity after activity the smoky mountains has it all. 
Today I'm excited to share our recent visit to the Wilderness At The Smokies Hotel and Waterpark Resort located in Sevierville, TN  with Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg nearby.

It's Tennessee's largest waterpark resort and family adventure center and is a must visit for families looking for fun with so much to do. There are 2 outdoor waterparks (seasonal) and 1 indoor waterpark that offers a see-through roof for year round warmth and sunshine no matter what the temperature is outside .

The waterparks feature everything from the Wild Vortex looping waterslide for thrill seekers to the more relaxing Cataloochee Creek lazy river and everything in between. My kids loved the basketball activity pool and trying their luck surfing on the Smokies Surf Rider which provides the sensation of surfing on a five foot ocean wave!

The fun doesn't stop with the waterpark though. We had a blast exploring the Wilderness Adventure Forest Family Adventure Center which offers over 25,000 square feet of indoor, hair-raising, DRY attractions including a 3 story ropes course for those brave enough, a multi-level laster tag arena, black light mini-golf, mini-bowling, a mega arcade and much much more!

The Wilderness is also a great place to stay and dine while in the smoky mountains. The resort features rustic mountain- modern charm and offers accommodations for both small families as well as those with larger groups. The River Lodge can accommodate up to 15 people and some suites are available with full kitchens and living areas. If cooking on vacation isn't your thing then you will love that the Wilderness offers full-service restaurants and buffets, a deli with made-to-order sandwiches, snack bars, a sweets shop and you will love that you don't have to leave for your fave cup of Starbucks Coffee which is available on site. 
We loved visiting the Wilderness at the Smokies and will definitely be returning soon! It's a great place to spend the day or the entire week with so much to do. We would highly recommend this resort and waterpark!
