3. The Great Location

Crockett’s is in the perfect location if you’re planning on exploring more of downtown after your meal. Situated on the Gatlinburg “Strip”, there are tons of fun activities to participate in around Crockett’s Breakfast Camp.

You’ll also be close to some awesome Ripley’s attractions while you’re downtown. Explore all the oddities at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not or spend some time with the sea creatures at Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies. Another great perk of dining at Crockett’s is that you’re just a short walk from our Gatlinburg hotel!

4. Crockett’s History
