If you are planning a Smoky Mountain vacation to introduce your kids to the excitement of camping, there’s no better place to stay than the Greenbrier Campground! Our family friendly campground offers a traditional camping experience where you can bond with your children and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the Smokies! Here are 5 fun things to do with your kids while staying at our Smoky Mountain campground:
1. Enjoy a Cookout
Every campsite at the Greenbrier Campground features a picnic table and grill so you can enjoy a fun cookout with your kids! You can pick up all the supplies you need at the grocery stores in nearby Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, or visit our Camp Store for snacks and other items. Prepare a delicious feast with hamburgers, hot dogs and other favorites, then sit down to relax and enjoy your meal among the backdrop of the Smoky Mountains!
2. Play Games Together
Another fun thing to do with your kids while staying at our Smoky Mountain campground is play horseshoes and other games! We have all types of recreational facilities for your family to enjoy, including volleyball, badminton, bocce ball, and cornhole. This is a unique opportunity to teach your children a new game or to create a tournament to see who is the champion of the family! You will also find outdoor ping pong and billiards, as well as a free game room for your entertainment.
3. Build a Campfire
One of the things that all kids love while camping is a campfire in the evening! While kids should be supervised at all times around the fire, they can help gather the sticks to use as kindling and help build the campfire. Once you have lit the fire, you can kick back under the stars to roast s’mores, tell spooky ghost stories, or just share loads of laughs with your family. We are sure that you will create many wonderful memories while camping at the Greenbrier Campground!
4. Go for a Scenic Hike
Take a hike with your kids to explore our Smoky Mountain campground and to walk along the banks of the Little Pigeon River. This is a fantastic opportunity to get some exercise and to enjoy the fresh mountain air that you just can’t get back home! If you prefer some extended hikes, you will be excited to know that the Greenbrier Campground is less than a half mile away from the Greenbrier entrance to Great Smoky Mountains National Park!
5. Take a Dip in the Swimming Hole
If you are visiting our campground during the warmer months of the year, don’t forget to pack your bathing suit for a dip in our swimming hole! The famous Flint Rock offers the best swimming in the Smoky Mountains, where you can splash around for hours with your kids, and cool off on a hot summer afternoon! A private beach area is a place where you can lounge under the sun and enjoy every minute of your relaxing vacation in the Smokies!
