We stayed at Simple Life the night before a big trek through the Smoky Mountains and were impressed with the quality of the facilities and proximity to the park. Alan, the owner, was incredibly helpful, professional, and accommodating. We will 100% stay here again if we're in the area and in need of a cabin or tent camping spot.

Always my first choice for lodging when visiting the Smokys with my motorcycle. Alan has always been an amazing host and does a fantastic job keeping up with the property. The cabins are always clean, comfortable, and have wifi. The bathhouse is always clean with readily hot water, and he has dedicated covered motorcycle parking. You can't beat the location either! Right outside Robbinsville, so you're around the corner from gas, food, and coffee. You're also near some of the best roads to ride from the Cherohala Skyway, Wayah Road, the Tail of the Dragon, Moonshiner 28, and the Foothills Parkway. 10/10 would recommend.

We had a wonderful time staying the weekend. Our group was spread out among three cabins, and we all loved our stay. Alan the owner was funny and greeted us as soon as we pulled into the property. He made sure we were well taken care of the entire time. The grounds themselves are well taken care of, and there's plenty of amenities and helpful resources at the main cabin. We loved our stay and will absolutely be coming back next year.

Thos place is gorgeous, great location, and a wonderful host! This place is super cozy. Great log cabin. Place to park trailers or bikes. It's a nice spot in a safe area and close to a tavern for dinner, a small city area, and not far from the Tail of the Dragon. Great place! We will definitely be coming back!

I just got home from staying at Simple Life for a week. This was my second stay there, and the host Alan was amazing. He's willing to do whatever he needs to make you comfortable and feel at home. Alan has worked hard to build his dream here, and it shows in his enthusiasm and commitment to his guests. I stayed in the Dragon's Lair cabin, which was very comfortable and had everything I needed to make my stay comfy. The view of the rest of the campground from the cabin was spectacular, as it's nestled high up. The ride up the hill to the cabin was daunting at first look, but once I did it, it wasn't a big deal. The campground is conveniently located just outside of town, and anything you need that Alan can't provide can be found after a 5 minute drive into town. I will definitely be back to stay at Simple Life again.

This is THE place to stay if you are planning a motorcycle trip to the Smoky Mountains to ride all those great roads (Tail of the Dragon, Cherohala Skyway, etc.). This is a great place to relax after a day of riding with comfortable beds, a clean and easily accessible bathhouse (if you opt to get a bathroom less cabin), and a great place to meet likeminded riders. A super affordable place that is close to everything, and the owner was a tremendous help with any issues I had and just overall friendly and good to chat with. Plenty of covered parking too. Can't wait to plan my next trip there!

We tent camped for two nights. The sites are nice and large, our six man tent fit with plenty of room. The facilities are great and the owner was very friendly and helpful. I was really impressed with everything and will probably look at booking one of the numerous cabins next time. Being able to have the dogs there was also fantastic

Wonderful host and a beautiful place. Allan was very helpful and kind. We had everything we needed and more. He has a little shop where you can purchase firewood, fire starters, coffee, ice and many more things you may need. He even has his own honey. When we will be in town, this is the place we will stay for sure.

My girlfriend and I stayed for a little under a week. You will find your host, Allen, to be both knowledgeable and helpful. Cannot recommend staying here enough, it is 1/4 the price and 4x as nice. Very quiet and calm area, not a biker party ground. Minutes for the Dragon, this is the spot to stop for rest, if available. Depending on the room and length of stay, you will need a cooler or ice chest.
