People would stop complaining on this website about the cameras if they had somewhere else to complain to.
Hello Lorie Glad to hear that you appreciate our list of web cams.
We just left Gatlinburg yesterday and I was telling my wife that it’s obvious the economy isnt that good yet because the people that originally had the money to invest in the cameras, no longer do.
Wonder why my comments of a few days ago weren’t posted?
God Bless All the down cameras have been down for years. People want to see the weather, traffic , and crowded it is. Here is a list of all the webcams that are not working and have been down for awhile.
If anything the park needs one at newfound gap to see true beauty of the smokies. Me and My family are going down there in A Few Months. If you are not going to fix them then just take them off your list.
I have been coming to GB since 2009 and since the first I knew that is where I was going to retire.I”m willing, too, to pay a small fee each year to have webcam use.But, as someone else said, they (Gat./PF) take in a lot of money (look at the taxes they collect) and the money that tourists spend there to justify using the webcams for advertisement and tourist information.And as you stated we have created this list for the sheer convenience of having all the cams listed in one place.Note to all of the dedicated Gatlinburg Web Cam fans: as always we(GSMVRO) do apologize for the cams not working but this is out of our control and we have no information regarding when any of the cams will be up and running.the tourists want to be able to look at Gatlinburg when they cant be there… It’s lovely to see new growth and the forward direction of recovery from the wildfires. We miss our friends and family in our smokey mountain home, but we’ll be there soon.I pray in time that funds will be available to replace those cameras wiped out by the fires.Gatlinburg has a tax on all businesses in town taking a percent of the stores profit.They put flowers around and such…would think they could put up some quality cameras and keep them working.I do realize though that the mentality of some of the people in charge there don’t really understand it so that’s why the webcams don’t get fixed. We visit Gatlinburg and the mountains several times a year. I love seeing the ones that show snow, fall colors, events that go on downtown and many other things. Thanks We will be visiting Gatlinburg for the first time on Dec.In all honesty, its a disservice to all who visit there and those who wish to come! 2014, and I’ve been monitoring the weather since two months. It’s been of great help, since we are from Costa Rica.
