After a catastrophic wildfire broke out throughout Gatlinburg a couple weeks ago, Westgate Resorts has been working around the clock to pull its Smoky Mountain Resort back together. The first phase of the resort reopened this past Saturday, December 10th after 652 units and 70 of the 90 buildings were destroyed. There were, however, 352 units that went untouched, as well as most of the resort’s signature amenities including the 60,000 sq. ft. Wild Bear Falls Indoor Water Park, Marketplace, fitness center, swimming pool, and original check-in building.
