Greenbrier is a place that most visitors don’t know about. You can wade through the river with water just to your knees or less. Its a soothing place to just spend family time. Vry relaxing and the whole family loves it.

There is no place like Greenbrier. It's so very beautiful. There are not regular bathrooms. Composting type toilets. And yes they are kind of gross. But the peace and beauty is worth the sacrifice of modern facilities.

We enjoyed the river and relaxing on the water. Great place for the kids. Almost any turn off is a good spot

This was an awesome place to have a picnic and hang out by the water. The kids loved playing in the creek. I am so glad we found it. I highly recommend it.

Even if the park is busy, Greenbrier is usually very quiet. Good place for a picnic, or to get near the river.

This is one of the local favorites with great places to get in the water and float with a tube. Many deeper pools for swimming as well. Take lunch and stay all day. Not too far from area eating places as well.

We rented an ATV and drove up to this location, it is a hidden gem outside of gatlinberg with beautiful flowing streams and a nice picnic area. There are trails to hike there but we didn't have time. It is an easy but narrow drive...More

We rented a side by side for a day and made our way to this entrance of the park based on the suggestion from our rental company. Very peaceful and well away from most of the tourists. What a beautiful part of the forest. The...More
