Very little was easy about being a frontiersman in American’s heartland in the mid-19th century, but one thing was for certain: A hard day’s work could never be done on an empty stomach! Legendary frontiersman David C. “Crockett” Maples knew this better than almost anyone else, and once he completed his military service in 1865, he set out with a dream to create an establishment that would ensure no trader or frontiersman in the Smoky Mountains would ever be without a full stomach. Thus, since 1875, Crockett’s Breakfast Camp in Gatlinburg, TN has been providing incredible breakfasts to travelers from all over while maintaining a unique, home-cooked feel. Crocketts Break Camp is for everyone!
