Long before sharks moved into downtown Gatlinburg and moonshine was legal in the hills of Tennessee the community that attracts millions of guests every year today, was a small and simple place known as White Oak Flats. One of the residents back then was a man named David C. “Crockett” Maples. A family man that served not only served his country but also his community. After receiving an honorable discharge in September of 1865 Crockett returned to his Smoky Mountain home and worked to provide for his family by running a supply store at the foot of the mountains with the assistance of his wife Mary. The couple were known at that time serving up the best mountain man breakfast in the area to travelers passing through. Today, their family continues their legacy at Crockett’s Breakfast Camp and since opening it’s become one of the hottest breakfast spots in all of the Great Smoky Mountains. Why should you eat there?
