At Little Arrow Outdoor Resort, we’re much more than a campground – we’re a community! When you visit, you’ll feel a family vibe – we love getting to know our campers, and helping them get to know each other. That’s why this Thanksgiving we’re pleased to continue a beloved tradition started years ago by our Tremont Campground predecessors: a gratitude-filled “Campsgiving” meal for all of our campers and glampers!
Around lunchtime on Thanksgiving Day we turn over the “Closed” sign on the Little Arrow Camp Store window, and our staff and the entire campground is invited to enjoy a family-style Campsgiving meal. With the majestic Smoky Mountains as our backdrop, we gather to say grace, and then the delicious buffet line begins. Little Arrow provides the turkey, dressing, and drinks, and our guests contribute their favorite side items. Because our campers come from all parts of the country, the feast becomes a sampler of regional dishes with many of the recipes passed down through generations. (We try to take note of the ingredients, but all too often they’re a secret!)
This year will be our first Campsgiving using our new Pavilion, and we’re looking forward to a relaxing meal with lots of laughter and story-sharing. Most of all we’ll be giving thanks for friends new and old, good health, and this cherished time to come together. It’s a tradition we were happy to inherit, and have no plans to conclude!
If you’re ready to get away from it all this Thanksgiving holiday but don’t want to give up turkey with all the trimmings, you won’t miss a thing when you stay at Little Arrow Outdoor Resort in scenic Townsend, Tennessee. We hope to see you at Campsgiving with your own special recipe!
