Which is it? Smoky or Smokey?
We spell it both ways on this web site. So, if you're searching for real estate, land and homes and in the "Smokey" mountains, you'll be sure to find us. Both are common spellings. But if you want to be correct about it, spell it the way the National Park Service does — the Great Smoky Mountains. Smokey the Bear, on the other hand, spells his name the other way. And if you're wondering about "Smokeys", "Smokys" or "Smokies," they're all correct.
