What’s New in 2020 at the Wilderness?!


The Candy Cabin – NOW OPEN!

If you love sweets (and who doesn’t!), stop by our new Candy Cabin now open at the Wilderness at the Smokies!  The Candy Cabin is located where our party rooms used to be near the Thirsty Miner Restaurant.  It features all sorts of heavenly hand-dipped delights and more types of candy than you can imagine!

Our candy experts and chocolatiers make to-die-for caramel, fudge and other delights right here in the Cabin!  You will be able to stop by and watch us whip up some delights while you pick up some of your favorite treats, including:  chocolate covered bacon, white and dark chocolate almond bark, chocolate covered gummy bears, truffles, covered pretzels, toffee and far too many of your favorite candies and snacks to mention!


At Yukon Yogurt, you can build your own sweet, frozen treat! Grab a cup, choose from the many flavors of frozen yogurt or sorbet, add your favorite toppings such as crushed candy bar, nuts, fruit and chocolate or caramel sauce!  It’s never the same treat twice.  Yukon Yogurt fills the space formerly held by the Thirsty Miner bar.

Looking for dairy free? Our sorbet fits the bill.
Going gluten-free? No worries, most of our flavors do not have gluten.
All varieties are clearly labeled whether they are non-fat, low fat or no sugar added.
