When you want a live view of the Smoky Mountains – whether you’re checking in on traffic, weather conditions or cute animals – there’s likely a live webcam that can fit your needs. With modern technology, live cameras make it easier than ever to “be there” without really being there. So whether you want to spy on some baby eaglets at Dollywood or see the view on the top of Clingmans Dome, these live webcams will transport you right to the heart of the mountains.

Many attractions in the Gatlinburg area offer a live look at the Smokies with a webcam. These attractions include Anakeesta, Ober Mountain and the Gatlinburg SkyPark. The National Park Service also offers a live view of some peaks in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. These views will provide a live look at Gatlinburg and beyond.

Eagles at Dollywood

6. Dollywood Eagle Cams (Pigeon Forge)

Dollywood is home to the largest exhibit for non-releasable Bald Eagles in the United States. The eagle cams at Dollywood are one of my personal favorite views around the Smokies because if you’re lucky, you might just be able to watch a baby eaglet grow up before your very eyes. The Dollywood eagle cams are presented by the American Eagle Foundation. If you plan to see these eagles in person, remember you can book ahead of time with Tripster.

Penguins at Ripley's

12. Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies

If a penguin cam doesn’t bring a smile to your face, I’m not sure what will. Watch these flightless birds play around in the water at Ripley’s and check in on your friends if you can’t make it to the aquarium in person. If you visit them in person, be sure to bundle your Ripley’s tickets and take advantage of the combo passes.

  1. VERY disappointed in the web cams – I would like to see live views of the car-lined streets during Rod Run and other cars shows. I am fearful of being there in person because of Covid. I would have thought that Pigeon Forge would have been forward-thinking enough to have made sure that there were live web cams catching the action!

  2. You made some good points there. I did a search on the matter and found the majority of people will agree with your blog.

  3. Whenever I need a Smoky Mountain “fix,” I come to these cameras often. Much appreciative of those who have these cameras for all to see. My favorite place in the world is the Smokies, and I go there to visit as often as I can. Thank you for the cameras!

  4. I would like to see a cam for people watching the streets of Gatlinburg.There used to be one close to one of the downtown bars. Dont know what happened to it.
