Wilderness at the Smokies - Smoky Mountain Waterpark Resort

Wilderness at the Smokies is a new upscale waterpark resort including condos, hotels, and nearby event center and golf course. The indoor waterpark is the first of its kind in the East TN area and provides year round entertainment and fun. The owner of Wilderness at the Smokies is waterpark industry leader Wilderness Development Corporation - the owner of the popular Wisconsin Dells, WI waterpark resort named Wilderness Hotel & Golf Resort which includes one of the nation’s largest indoor waterpark.

Wilderness at the Smokies is located in the new Bridgemont Development Project in Sevierville, TN. Wilderness at the Smokies is part of the 1,000 acre development that includes the new Sevierville Events Center, Eagles Landing Golf Course, resort housing, cabin rentals, and various shopping opportunities.

The success of the Wilderness Hotel & Golf Resort combined with the approximate 12 million visitors to the Smoky Mountains are likely to make Wilderness at the Smokies one of the Smoky Mountains top attractions, if not one of the top attractions in the Southeast! Condos are available for this project and can be placed on the overnight rental program to create income from your investment. The Sevierville Events Center is already 50%+ booked through the year 2010, creating a need for many condos/hotel rooms nearby. The 1,000 acre Bridgemont Development is a large enough project it could be a destination itself. The full sustaining development will consist of everything one could need, luxury and affordable condo, hotel, and cabin accomodations, shopping, several restaurants, golf course, outdoor and indoor waterpark, and much more! All of this located within minutes of Pigeon Forge & Gatlinburg with a view of the Smoky Mountains.

The condos offered for sale feature uspcale furnishings, access to the indoor waterpark, and luxury amenities. The “River Lodge” is the first phase of the condos. River Lodge consists of four stories of condominium homes, many of which overlook the amazing indoor waterpark and playful outdoor water features. A variety of balcony views range from that of the waterpark, events center, golf course and Bridgemont retail locations.

Golfing At Bridgemont - Eagle’s Landing Golf Course (18 Holes) & Championship CourseThe golf courses located in the Bridgemont development are the already existing 18 Hole Eagle’s Landing course owned by the City of Sevierville as well as a new 18 hole course to in conjunction with the Wilderness at the Smokies waterpark resort and condos. The golf courses have earned top recognition by Golf Inc. Magazine. One course will have a designation as resort course, while the other will be the Championship Course.

Shopping At Bridgemont - “The Shops At Bridgemont” and “Bridgemont Commons ”The Goodman Company of West Palm Beach, FL will be developing the Bridgemont Shopping Center area called the “Shops At Bridgemont” which is located in the Bridgemont Development Project just South of the Wilderness at the Smokies. The Shops at Bridgemont includes 531,000 square feet of shopping, dining, and entertainment.

In addition, the Goodman Company will be developing “Bridgemont Commons” located on the other side of the Parkway at the proposed (2010) bypass location which connects to Dollywood.

"Bridgemont Commons is a proposed 200,000+- square foot power center located on the east side of Hwy 66 at the intersection of the new Hwy 66 Bypass that is expected to be completed in late 2010. This location will be an extension of The Shops of Bridgemont, a 531,000 square foot lifestyle center, directly across Hwy 66. It is projected that this new intersection of the Hwy 66 Bypass and Hwy 66 will be the preeminent intersection within Sevierville, TN.

With over 12 million yearly visitors to Sevierville, almost all of them exit off I-40 six miles to the north and drive south along Hwy 66. It is expected that the new Bypass will divert almost 40% of that southerly traffic which creates a highly synergistic intersection when including the Shops at Bridgemont and the 1000 acre Residential/Hotel /Events Center development across the street.” - The Goodman Company

Sevier County Roads & Developments

Sevier County is experiencing tremendous growth. Within the next five years, several major projects should be completed. Among those currently under construction are the Bridgemont Project (which includes the Sevierville Events Center and Wilderness Resort & Hotel) and the Dumplin Creek Development.
Along with these large scale developments comes the need for road expansion to a highway system that is already clogged during busy weekends as tourists travel from I-40 to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and the Smoky Mountains through Sevierville and the Highway 66 corridor. The state has begun acquiring properties for the future expansion of Highway 66 from four lanes to six lanes in the near future. The department of transportation acquisition includes properties from Boyd’s Creek Highway (Rt. 338) to downtown Sevierville.…TO BE CONTINUED….

This setting in the heart of the Smokies offers easy access to the peaceful Wears Valley area as well as attraction and excitement filled Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.
