Campground Origins

Chilling in Nature has always been one of my favorite things to do! 

I’ve always enjoyed nature. Beach, lake, woods, mountains, waterfalls, wild life.

I’ve lived on a houseboat for the last dozen years on Percy Priest Lake in Nashville. I have found it a constant source of serenity, relaxation and refreshment.

As wonderful as lake life has been and is, a rustic wilderness of dense timberland, mountains, roughly hewn rocky trails and majestic waterfalls holds its own unequalled appeal. 

My favorite place to hike and camp in Tennessee is Savage Gulf, part of the South Cumberland State Park system.  After two hip surgeries I was fortunate enough, in less than a year, to embark on a 7 day/night hike there. Though challenging, it felt like a new lease on life.  Abundant vistas, waterfalls and trails galore. 

Consequently, when I retired, I decided to develop a campground adjacent to the western gateway at Greeter Falls. Amazingly, 3 waterfalls and a cool swimming hole are accessible within a short 1 mile walk!  So, I took my life savings and went all in.  “Buy  Dirt” as the song says. 

Return to the Woods

One of my favorite quotes by Emerson reads, “In the woods, we return to reason and faith.” I have found it so. Nature offers solace as well as inspiration. Waterfalls especially seem cleansing to the soul, mind and spirit.

It is my hope and intention that Greeter Falls Campground becomes a place like that for you. A place to escape to and maybe regroup. Gain a new perspective. Connect with yourself, a significant other(s) and perhaps deepen a spiritual connection.

By providing a wide range of nature-based immersions; from weekend get-a-ways to longer stay-cations.  

The goal is to provide a refuge.  To help you to unwind, regroup, reconnect, be renewed.  We hope you find it so.
