If you are trying to decide between camping in the Smoky Mountains or staying in a hotel, the answer is actually quite simple. There is no better way to fully appreciate the beauty and splendor of the Smokies than camping outdoors at the Greenbrier Campground! Here are the top 4 reasons why staying at our Smoky Mountain campground is more fun than staying at a hotel:

1. Feel Immersed in the Environment

The Greenbrier Campground offers the perfect way to feel completely immersed in the environment of the Great Smoky Mountains! While it is true that hotels may have lots of fancy amenities, you will feel disconnected from nature in hotel accommodations. After all, we are sure the whole reason you are coming to the Smokies in the first place is to enjoy the great outdoors! While staying at our Smoky Mountain campground, you can camp out under the stars and wake up in the morning to the crisp mountain air. You can also take advantage of such traditional campground activities such as grilling out and having a campfire each evening!

2. Pets are Welcome

While it can be extremely difficult to find a hotel that allows pets, you will be delighted to know that Greenbrier Campground is a pet-friendly campground! We know that pets are part of the family too, and we would be delighted to welcome your furry companion to our Smoky Mountain campground! We only ask that pet owners respect the rules of the campground and their fellow campers so that everyone can enjoy a pleasant camping experience. If you want to take a hike with your pet, check out the Gatlinburg Trail, which runs from the Sugarlands Visitor Center to the outskirts of Gatlinburg. This is one of the only trails within the Great Smoky Mountains National Park that allows pets.

3. Affordable Rates

There is no need to spend a fortune on hotel accommodations in the Smokies when you can stay at the Greenbrier Campground for affordable rates! Whether you are traveling solo, with a family or with a large group, you will find that our campground offers the best deal for your stay in the Smoky Mountains. Our rates include your campsite and all of our wonderful campground amenities, including recreational equipment, a private swimming area, wireless internet access and a modern bathhouse.

4. Away from the Crowds

While downtown Gatlinburg is a fun place to enjoy some shopping, dining and entertainment, it can also get quite crowded. Many of the Gatlinburg hotels are situated along the Parkway where there is traffic, noise and other issues. The Greenbrier Campground is situated away from the crowds so that you can enjoy the peaceful ambiance of the mountains! When you do want to explore downtown Gatlinburg, you can take comfort knowing that it is just a short drive away.

Make sure to reserve your camping site at our Smoky Mountain campground today to enjoy the fun of camping in the Smokies! We hope to see you soon at the Greenbrier Campground!
