"Camp Smoky has been such a blessing to the Children's Ministry at Woodland Park Baptist Church.  We began coming to Camp Smoky in 2015 and would not consider anywhere else for our annual Summer Kidz Kamp.  The staff do everything within their power to make our stay there comfortable.  They even chase the bears away for us.  Lol.  If you are looking for a great place to take your kids, teens or adults, check it out.  You won't be disappointed."
