Annual Wilderness Wildlife Event in Pigeon Forge Bigger Than Ever


Nature lovers won’t want to miss the annual Wilderness Wildlife Week event in Pigeon Forge. This year’s festival is bigger than ever and will include lectures, workshops, exhibits, guided hikes and exclusive one-on-ones. This year’s event runs a full week, so Bear Camp Cabins invites visitors to reserve one of our Pigeon Forge cabins to be near all of the excitement.

This year, Wilderness Wildlife Week will be held at the brand new LeConte Center, a $45 million,  232,000 foot facility centrally located in the city. This is the 24th consecutive year for the event in Pigeon Forge, and it’s planned to be bigger than ever. Running January 25 to February 1, theKnoxville Daily Sun reported there will be more than 320 indoor programs and 55 hikes in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Also included will be guided tours of the National Park.

Education and entertainment were the driving ideas behind this event in the Great Smoky Mountains. This year’s program will have more than 200 experts on hand to lead the activities and offer educational sessions. Programs topics offered will range from photography improvements to mountain trout and fly-fishing. There will something for every age, and guests are welcome to attend as much of the program as they’d like.


Whether you want to attend one session or the entire event in Pigeon Forge, Bear Camp’s cabins will be a relaxing and restful place to stay while in the Smokies. We have many options located near the LeConte Center, so be sure to check out our Pigeon Forge cabins for a memorable mountain vacation.
