Yes, I'm sorry another Gatlinburg area thread. I've read through them all and I'm not sure I got a great answer for my situation, so thought I'd ask specifically. I am thinking about planning a trip (5-7 days) in Gatlinburg next summer. What I'm hoping to find is the best compromise campground. If it were up to me I'd pull into Cosby or Elkmont, survive without electricity for the stay and never step foot outside of the national park. There is more than enough entertainment for me in the NP to keep me occupied for weeks. Unfortunately my wife's idea of the Smokies is a trip around the scenic drive and to the visitor center in the NP, and then spend the rest of the week playing hillbilly golf, dollywood, Ripley's, etc. Basically she enjoys taking the kiddo to all the parts of the area that I think look like somebody took a giant dump on one of the most beautiful areas of the Eastern US. So with that in mind the national park campgrounds are definitely out. She will never agree to a stay that long without electricity. Our PUP has a casette toilet that we don't use, no need for sewer hookups, water is fine but not a deal breaker either way. If the park had a shuttle stop to go into Gatlinburg that'd be a bonus. Things in the park for the kid to do are always a plus. But I still want something that feels like a campground; trees, river, at least a little space, etc. Close to the NP for hiking is a must. Thus far I'm thinking the Greenbrier Campground might fit the bill for us, but I'm not sure if there are better options that might be better for what we're looking for?
