The mountain peaks are dusted with snow, and chilly weather has set into the Smokies. For families visiting this winter, sometimes the best way to appreciate the area is to stay in and relax. If that’s part of your plan, Bear Camp Cabins has simple ideas for family time on snowy days in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge cabins.

Chill Out

If there’s snow on the ground, guests can get out and enjoy it for a little while without having to travel far. Even if it’s just chilly without snow, most families love exploring the area around their cabins. Not only are there spectacular mountain views, but there are also brooks, streams and woods to see during the stay.

Thaw Out

After spending time outside, families can thaw out in the cabin with a warm meal and a hot cocoa. Since the whole family is together, prepare a hearty soup or other meal. The kids can learn new tasks in the kitchen, and this will shorten prep time for parents.

Cold weather is also the perfect excuse to indulge in foods the family doesn’t eat everyday. Having a snow day in the Smokies is a great reason to make everyone’s favorite treats and cookies, we think. After warming up and filling your bellies, you can spend time together without an agenda or schedule.

Lounge Around

Snow days are all about relaxing and getting time off from the usual schedule, so we recommend you spend time just lounging around. If the kids get bored easily, just choose one of our Pigeon Forge cabins with a game room. We offer rentals with pool tables, air hockey and arcade games, so everyone can be entertained while spending time together.


Piling up on the couch as a group is another one of the most fun things to do in Pigeon Forge cabins with a theater room. Pick a family favorite, and kick back to appreciate the giant screen inside and the magnificent views outside.

With snow covered mountains and year-round attractions, the Smoky Mountains are one of the best places to travel in winter. If you’re dreaming of a snow day in the Smokies, be sure to look at our current Pigeon Forge cabins’ specials. See you in the Smokies!
