Best swimming hole and fishing in the Smokies, a few hundred yards from national park boundary. The owner is very strict but that keeps out the riffraff. There are no paved patios, arcades, pools or camp stores but you won't find a more beautiful natural spot. Bring your tubes and fishing poles.

Called to get information the lady was extremely rude would not stay here just because of the attitude she had on the phone. Never been treated this way asking for information about a service they offer to the public. Obvious why they have so many bad reviews. Need new owners!!!

We just completed a week stay. We had no issues with camp mgmt. The c/ground is SPOTLESS. The swimming hole should be advertised better, it's basically where three creeks merge into a small river - bring tubes bc you can walk up stream a little and tube down! I will go back and stay!!!

We have never seen such rude people as we did at this campground. Be warned, do not stay here. The day we were there,hardly anybody was there, know I know why. The other campgrounds we went to had plenty of campers in them. Do yourself a favor and stay someplace else!!!!!!!!

My wife and daughter and myself just completed a two day/2 night stay at Greenbrier Campground in Pittman Center, TN. Of the 28 or so reviews we read of the campsight 10 gave 5 star reviews and 12 gave 1 star and a couple were in the middle. I can tell you the manager was wonderful and very helpful. She's... More

My wife and I stayed 3 nights in September at Greenbrier. The location is beautiful. It actually is an island. Most of the sites are near water. The area is flat, making camping easier. It's clean. Now, that said, we had been warned about the manager, and had read the awful reviews mostly about her, so we went there expecting... More

I gave it 4 stars because of the memories I have there... The service is not very friendly. The woman is always on the defensive and is quite rude not to mention they charge you 25 cents per five minutes in the shower (slot machine is in the shower). Never been to a campground that charges you for showers separately... More

The campground is quiet, grounds well maintained, and pretty. The woman running the place is hands down the rudest and most obnoxious I have yet to encounter. She is a control freak. Small pets are not allowed in the grassy dog walk because the traffic is close and that is where she takes her two big dogs. Instead you have... More

Our initial plans were to stay in the GSMNP but the government shutdown put the kibosh on those plans. We found a wonderful substitute with Greenbrier. No matter how many negative reviews I read about this location, it will never tarnish the amazing time my husband and I had when we did our tent camping adventure here. Darlene was absolutely...
