Visiting the world’s largest gas station: Buc-ee’s at Sevierville, TN

Buc-ee’s travel stops have always been popular among RVers for their wide variety of goods and reasonable fuel prices, but the company recently outdid even itself when they opened the world’s largest gas station in Sevierville, Tennessee.

And what a great location to put the world’s largest gas station! Sevierville is a family tourist hub and gateway to all kinds of must-see attractions including Dollywood, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and, of course, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

When the 74,000-square-foot facility recently opened, the “Today” show was there to document the occasion. The video below gives a quick tour of the most massive Buc-ee’s of all.

So what’s inside (and out) of the world’s largest gas station?

A whole lot more than fuel. Although, of course, they do have both gas and diesel fuel, dispensed through 120 fuel pumps. And, of course, the world’s largest gas station would have to be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Buc-ee’s says this location will never close!

This location employs over 350 people so, in theory at least, service should not be an issue. And, in fact, Buc-ee’s has won recognition for their friendly staff.

Beyond that you can expect to find the following and a whole lot more at Buc-ee’s Sevierville:

  • House-made fudge
  • Texas-style BBQ—YUM!
  • Photo ops with Buc-ee Beaver himself
  • An enormous selection of snacks, foods, souvenirs, and merchandise. Prepare to spend some time shopping!

As great as all this is, Sevierville is not expected to hold the title of the world’s largest gas station for long. Buc-ee’s is currently under construction for an even larger one in Texas. That only makes logical sense as everything is bigger in Texas!

Thank you, Cheri! I went by the Sevierville exit Saturday afternoon and did not see an unusual amount of exiting or entering traffic. I wonder how close to the interstate it is? In any case, thanks for the information. My fuel stops are in-and-out, minimizing the time away from the road. Fuel stations aren’t my idea of a destination, particularly those of Texas-interlopers adding to the crowding of east Tennessee.

Stopped in twice. Place is like a Walmart on steroids. People and vehicles everywhere. Many not watching where they are going.
Lots of stuff.
CLEAN bathrooms…Best feature I found.

Hope they built a comparable or more parking lot! Never enough parking at stores where we’ve stopped. Wouldn’t even think about it with MH and car attached.

We discovered Buc-ee’s on our first trip to Houston. Holy cow! It then became a must-stop on both the trips down and back (to Reno). Yup, it’s touristy for sure. But good touristy, in my opinion. I seem to have to buy some sort of Buc-ee’s souvenir every time we go there. I even have a picture of me standing with a Buc-ee’s character (like a Disney sort of thing). However, never go there on a holiday weekend. It’ll take forever to get in, and then it will be almost impossible to GET OUT!

Love Buc-ees. Son and wife visiting from Brooklyn, this is a mandatory tourist stop. Hint- take your RV to the 2nd entrance, and fill up on the back row. Less hectic.
