Pebble Mountain Family Campground

The Pebble Mountain Family Campground is 15 miles to the south of Greeneville, nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. The campground got its name in the 70's when the original owner made a reference to a lot of pebbles in a nearby creek bank. There is no pebble mountain, but there is a creek. The place is far off the beaten path and their motto is "a peaceful coexistence with nature." There is a pool, a playground, and a pavilion with a fireplace. Spring and fall are the most beautiful seasons here, but in winter the nearby mountains are covered with snow. There are full hookups for RVs and campers. There are also several primitive tent camping sites.
