**During the WINTERTIME** we recommend tire chains and 4-wheel drive vehicles in the winter months. Our area is officially named the SMOKY MOUNTAINS. You will be probably be driving on mountain roads if you are staying in a cabin. City roads and main roads will be plowed if there is snow but not all county roads are plowed on a regular basis. Please come prepared with snow tires or tire chains and 4WD vehicles. You could even add a bag of Ice Melt in you trunk; it will be very handy if you get stuck and you can always use it back at home. Baskins Creek does not have 4-wheel drive or towing services.
If you have any doubts about your need for chains in case of snow – buy them at home and bring them with you. When we really get a freak storm without warning every guest already in town will looking for chains at the same time and our local stores run out of tire chains long before surprise demand is met. Be a boy scout – come prepared!
We do not recommend arriving through the Great Smoky Mountain National Park using Hwy. 441 during the winter.
