Pigeon Forge is located along the Little Pigeon river in the Eastern part of the state of Tennessee. It was named after a forge erected at the present-day location of the city center in 1810. Pigeon Forge is one of the best places to base yourself while you explore the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This is the largest protected land area east of the Rocky Mountains and the most visited national park in the American park system. From hiking and white-water rafting to birdwatching walks and rock climbing, every flavor of outdoor activity is represented in or around Pigeon Forge. A vibrant arts and culture district as well as a burgeoning culinary scene also make for exciting days and nights. Known for its theme parks, including Dollywood, owned by legendary country musician Dolly Parton, Pigeon Forge calls itself a family vacation hub, and with good reason!
