Shagbark is a well kept secret in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. A private gated community only minutes from Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg or the Smoky Mountains National Park with about 1300 acres of woodlands, foothill ridges, meadows, waterfalls, creeks and spectacular views.

Begun in the late 1970's there are only 245 cabins scattered throughout the 1300 acres of wooded hillsides and valleys that bring you the seclusion and privacy you expect to find on the Townsend side of the Smoky Mountains.

Here you will find an assortment of deluxe cabins with crystal clean HOT TUBS, Fireplaces either wood-burning or gas, Pool Tables or Air Hockey or Foosball Tables, Grills, comfortable beds, multiple TV's with satelite receivers in the gathering space and bedrooms, access to in-cabin washers & dryers and completely outfitted kitchens.

Located just 15 minutes from traffic light #3 on the Parkway in Pigeon Forge off Wears Valley Road you will leave your cares behind as you enter this special nature sanctury where the traffic noise is blocked and the night sky is full of stars.

A very friendly gate staff person will welcome you at the entrance on N. Clearfork Road no matter when you arrive at Shabark as the gate is manned 24/7. Auto passes are REQUIRED for all visitors and guests so let me know how many cars might visit a cabin during your stay. Shagbark Community maps highlighted to your cabin will be mailed in your welcome packet which includes your autopass or they are available at the Security Gate.

Enjoy the TENNIS COURTS with a BASKETBALL GOAL and the Meadow by the mail boxes year round or the Shagbark Community SWIMMING POOL Memorial Day through Labor Day at no charge by the Community Center.

If you are having a gathering and need a larger space or parking area than what is offered by your cabin/cabins, it is possible to make arrangements for the Shagbark Community Center Meeting Room for $50 per day.  



Wild turkeys wander the meadows and wooded lots of Shagbark providing unforgetable memories from your stay in the Shagbark Community.

 Midway back along the creek is a wide meadow area   where you can play ball, fly a kite, explore the creek or chip golf balls. You may park by the mailboxes.
