Offering spectacular scenery and endless entertainment, the Great Smoky Mountains are the perfect place for a spring vacation! To help you make the most of your trip, the Oak Tree Lodge has put together five tips for an amazing getaway at our Pigeon Forge hotel on the Parkway.  

1. Walk to Local Attractions

One of the best parts of staying on the Parkway is being close to all of the best things to do in Pigeon Forge! When you stay at the Oak Tree Lodge, you can walk to a number of great attractions, including Five Oaks Riding Stables, Adventure Park Zip Lines, Tree Tops Ropes Course, and Ripley’s Old MacDonald’s Farm Mini Golf. Guests at our Pigeon Forge hotel will also be right across the street from the area’s largest outlet mall, one of the top destinations for shopping in the Smokies. Not having to deal with traffic or parking for the day will make your vacation completely stress free.

2. Take Advantage of Our Free Pigeon Forge Attraction Tickets

The Oak Tree Lodge is not only near all of the most popular vacation activities, but we also provide free Pigeon Forge attraction tickets for our guests! Every night of your stay with us, you will receive one complimentary ticket to the attraction of your choice.

The Oak Tree Lodge has partnered with Ripley’s, so you can get free admission to Old MacDonald’s Farm Mini Golf, Ripley’s Believe It or Not Odditorium, or Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies. Music fans can use their attraction pass to see an amazing show at the Country Tonite Theatre.

If you want to go rafting on the Pigeon River, you can save money with a complimentary ticket to Big Creek Expeditions, which offers guests a choice of two rafting trips. Other attractions that are part of this offer include the Rainforest Adventures Discovery Zoo, Lazerport Fun Center, SpeedZone Fun Park, and Sugarland Cellars, which offers wine tours and tastings.

3. Spend Some Time Relaxing in Your RoomThe Pigeon Forge sign near our Pigeon Forge hotel on the Parkway.

While there is so much to do on the Parkway, be sure to schedule some downtime at our hotel. With the Oak Tree Lodge’s convenient location, it is easy to stop back in your room for a quick break or even an afternoon nap. Our rooms come with all of the amenities you need to really kick back and unwind on vacation, including Queen or King-sized beds, free wireless high speed internet access, and refrigerators in every room, so you can store snacks and beverages. Your kids will love swimming in our heated indoor and outdoor pools and playing our vintage arcade games. For the ultimate relaxing retreat, consider booking one of our suites with a Jacuzzi and fireplace!

4. Experience the Beauty of Spring in the Smoky Mountains

Pigeon Forge is a great vacation destination any time of year, but it is especially appealing in the spring. With average high temperatures around 70 °F, the weather is perfect for being outdoors. East Tennessee really comes alive during springtime, with amazing greenery and spectacular wildflowers at every turn. When you stay at our Pigeon Forge hotel on the Parkway, you will be just a short drive from the magnificent Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Be sure to spend some time enjoying everything the season has to offer with a picnic, hike, or scenic drive in the national park.
