Crockett’s Breakfast Camp

Our favorite breakfast place in the Smokies!

The skillet breakfasts are to die for. Bring a big appetite, it’s a ton of food. They are known for their cinnamon buns, once you walk in the front door you’ll see why.

Located toward the end of the strip towards the park entrance near Sugerland Distillery. Parking is sort of an issue, if the spots they have available are full there is a lot next door that you can pay to park. Totally worth it! The decor is unbelievable. A definite must visit!
