Day 236 - Cedar Creek Rd in Townsend

Crystal's T@b Camper

While the rest of my photography group took naps, I went for my walk along Cedar Creek Road.  What drew me to this road was a wood carving shop that has most of its work outside on display.  There were all kinds of bears, eagles, and assorted seriousness alongside assorted whimsy. 

I parked at a tubing shop that was closed and walked along the road, coming soon to a campground.  Besides the usual RV's parked there, the campground was having a T@b camper meetup.  What darling little campers these are!  Shaped like a teardrop, these vintage-inspired campers come in a variety of colors and have a variety of accessories.  I talked with one woman, who was sitting outside a baseball cap style camper.  Her camper, which was not a T@b, was painted to look like a library, with a pencil for a back bumper.  She told me all about the T@b campers, and I instantly fell in love.  I want to seriously consider one of these for my future!

Continuing down the road, there were homes on both sides of the street, and those on the river side had backyards set up with fishing patios; all you had to do was step outside your back door and fish.  The water in the river was so clear.  It appeared to be less than four feet deep in most spots.

Wild Ride!
I ended my walk at Captain Dave's Artistry.  The carvings were amazing; most were done right there on the property, with a chain saw.  Someone obviously had a sense of humor, judging by the various faces and poses on the bears and Sasquatch.

This walk was full of fun and whimsical things to see.  I definitely want to come back to the Smokies.
Privacy, please!

  1. I truly appreciate this post. I’ve been looking everywhere for Eagle Cap Campers.

  2. Just desire to say your article is as surprising. The clarity in your post is simply excellent and i could assume you’re an expert on eagle cap campers.

  3. Great answers! My friend has recommended your blog On Eagle Cap Campers and this is superb. After a glance I find a solution to my question. I am proud of your efforts that made a difference.
