Yesterday the Great Smoky Mountains National Park celebrated it's birthday. On June 15, 1934 the park was established and has since preserved both historical landmarks and a diverse wildlife population. We are proud to live near what has become the most visited National Park in the United States. Join with us to help promote and preserve this national treasure!

We love getting visits from our elk friends!  This handsome guy paid us a visit yesterday and posed for some photos.  The guests and the Joey's team loved him of course.  The elk were reintroduced to our area back in 2001.  Only 25 elk were released but their numbers have grown and they continue to thrive.  Visitors to Maggie Valley and Joey's Pancake House are often treated to a view of these magnificent creatures.  For more information about the elk in our area click here.
