So next month I'm taking a week off to hang with 2 of my daughters and 2 of my grandkids in Pigeon Forge Tennessee. They have a dance competition there that my daughters dance studio is competing in. We will be doing Dollywood and the aquarium as well as a few other fun things. My question is do I park at the nearest large truck stop (pilot I believe) for 7 days or does anyone know of a better parking situation in the Sevierville, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge area? Having never parked that long are there any issues I should be aware of parking at a Pilot truck stop for a week? I of course can't get the truck to the cabin rental and won't be going back to the truck at night.

My first thought would be to go into the truck stop, ask for the manager and find out if you can park that long without issues.

I've parked for two days without questions.

The nearest truck stop, the pilot on the east side of Knoxville is a hike. There is little to no truck parking actually in the Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg area. I know of one paid parking, tiny dirt lot across from a Pilot gas station. (It is NOT a truck stop). It is on the north side of Sevierville. It is on the west side of the main road heading into the area. I don’t have a clue how much it would cost. I go to Gatlinburg at least once a year. But I just park at home and drive my car to Gatlinburg..


There a ton of shopping plazas and large parking lots in the area; however, I don’t think any of them would allow a truck being parked there. TBH, Sevierville or pigeon forge wouldn’t be too horrible to maneuver around with a big rig. However, you couldn’t pay me to go anywhere near Gatlinburg in one.

Wish you the best of luck.

Btw, the Pilot gas station doesn’t own the dirt lot. Don’t know who does.
