Campgrounds

There isn't a Park Service campground at the Greenbrier area of the Smokies. There are, however, private campgrounds nearby. The Cosby area has a park service campground nearby but it is a 30 minute drive from Greenbrier. Here are a couple of URL's for private campgrounds that are located in Gatlinburg TN.

Primitive

There are a few back-country sites in the park that require a hike to get to your campsite.

Campsite 31

My favorite campsite in this section of the park. At the end of the 3.7 mile Porters Creek Trail, this site is nestled in a grove of Hemlocks. It has good water source and a primitive trail that climbs up a steep mountain-side to junction with that A.T..
