What is the Campground like?
Greeter Falls Campground is a rustic environment. It is not a manicured concrete parking lot. We attempted to respect the environment and terrain and hence it is rough hewn within previously undisturbed timberland. Remember we are guests within the Mother Natures embrace. Therefore, please note there are bugs and critters and fallen branches throughout. We do our best to spray the site pads for ticks and spiders, but please take preventive action – like bug spray. Also be alert for poison ivy, snakes, bees and other typical wilderness inhabitants.
Are the Greeter Falls Hiking Trails Safe?
The trail to Blue Hole and the upper trail to Broad Tree Falls are relatively easy and generally safe for children. However, the trails to Upper and (especially) Lower Greeter Falls can be dangerous, particularly when wet. There are shear drop offs. Use special care, especially with small children.
How far is it to the Falls? The Greeter Falls Trailhead is less than a 1/2 mile from our Campground down Greeter Falls Road. From the trailhead there are 4 destinations to choose from. Many campers choose to walk from their campsite, while others choose to drive down and park in the provided lot. Here’s a map.
Where nearby services? The city of Altamont is less than 2 miles down the road (Route 56). There you will find the Dollar General (Market), local gas station, 2 restaurants, hardware store as well as city & county government offices.
What are some things to do around the campground? There are many recreational options available – here’s a list of a few. Many folks are interested in attending the latest music venue at the Caverns. If you’re planning on an extended hike and overnight camping within Savage Gulf, please make reservations with the Park Office directly.
Can I check in remotely? If you make your reservations through CampSpot, you can check-in online by submitting payment and signing the terms and conditions. Just follow the link provided in your email. If you are unable to check in online, please follow the procedures for late check in below.
Can I check in after hours? If you arrive after hours, please go directly to your site. Thereafter, you will need to come to the camp office (not campground store), located at 180 Greeter Falls Road North – at our main campus (Area C) to sign the terms & conditions, retrieve your wifi password and personal access code to the campground bathhouse and activity center. You will find all the information in an envelope with your name and site number on it, within our after hours check-in box.
How is Phone Service there? AT&T works great. Verizon is good too. Sprint & T-Mobile are poor, spotty at best.
Can I get Wi-Fi everywhere on the campground? Google Fiber Wifi is available at our central campus location, throughout Area C (RV, Car Camp & Yurts within the #30s and #40s). Generally, RV and Car/Truck Camp sites in Area D (sites 61-71) can also access Wi-Fi, but it is not guaranteed. Primitive Tent Sites within Areas A & B do not have access to Wi-Fi.
