Oconaluftee offers both a visitor center and the Mountain Farm Museum-a collection of historic log buildings gathered from throughout the Smoky Mountains and preserved on a single site. Buildings include a house, barn, applehouse, springhouse, and smokehouse.
At the visitor center, rangers can answer your questions about the park and there is a bookstore with a broad selection of guides, maps, and other products.
With 276,000 acres in North Carolina and 244,000 acres in Tennessee, the park is the largest protected land area east of the Rocky Mountains. This national treasure is home to variety of plant and animal life, recreational opportunities, hiking and cultural history. The park preserves historical structures of early European settlements.
There are no admissions charges.
