There are no restaurants within the park (other than at the remote LeConte Lodge on the Tennessee side). Picnic areas, however, provide amenities such as restrooms and pavilions. Most picnic areas in the park have raised grills for cooking. All picnic areas have restrooms, some with pit toilets and some with flush toilets, but not all have running water in the bathrooms (bring hand sanitizer) or potable drinking water.
