With 11 million visitors annually, Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the most visited National Park in the United States. Visitors flock to the park for its fog-enshrouded peaks, unique Appalachian culture and history, abundant wildlife, thick green forests, bubbling mountain streams and spectacular waterfalls. We take it all in this week, including Cades Cove, Clingman’s Dome, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Elkmont, and a couple of wonderful hikes, while staying at Honeysuckle Meadows RV Park in Wears Cove. Along the way we encounter a number of the park’s ubiquitous black bears, too — even in our RV park!

We’ve created some fun and quirky merchandise particularly for RV campers, including t-shirts, coffee mugs and more. Sales help to support Grand Adventure to keep bringing you outdoor adventure videos each and every week. Visit to browse our selection.


We’ve opened a Grand Adventure store on Amazon! Unlike other Amazon shops, every single item you see in our store is hand picked from things we use ourselves in our own Grand Adventures, from RV stuff to our dogs and even photography and videography. We’ve tried it, we’ve tested it, and we can heartily recommend it. No random stuff or paid product placements.

It costs you no more to shop Amazon with us, but by shopping our store a portion of each sale goes to bringing you more and better Grand Adventure videos! Thank you for clicking through to give us a look!

Welcome to Grand Adventure, a YouTube channel that focuses on RV-centric outdoor activities including not only of course camping, but also mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, skiing and more, always filmed in stunning 4K.

We’re based in Salt Lake City, Utah, and invite you to come along as we travel all around the western U.S. My wife Patricia and I, and dog Zoe are avid boondockers, so you’ll seldom find us in RV parks or even dry campgrounds. Instead, we’re usually camped in some of the most remote and beautiful spots that you could ever pull a travel trailer into. And unlike most other RV channels on YouTube, we’re not RV dealers or full-timers — we’re “long-timers” who tend to hit the road for weeks or months at a time, while maintaining a sticks-and-bricks home in Utah.

We’ll provide beautiful travel videos, as well as some tips and insight on trip planning, and equipping and maintaining your RV to make your next adventure a grand one indeed! So, subscribe to make sure that you catch every episode, and remember…life is nothing but a Grand Adventure!
