As a life-long ''patron'' of Paint Creek, I can say I have seen it go through MANY changes. Aside from just the campground the main ''Coridor'' of the Park has several Picnic
 
    sites with rest-rooms, as well as 5 or 6 secluded, single group campsites, that arent in the campground itself. These are, in MY opinion the better places to camp, as they are all close enough to a picnic area to walk to use the restroom.
 There is also a relitively deep ''swimming hole'' and picknic area called Dudley Falls. It is located about halfway into the corridor. There are cliffs to dive from, for the thrill seeker, as well as Paint Rock, located at the emergence of Paint Creek into The French Broad River. Paint Rock is a 160 foot, Sheer vertical, limestone Cliff. PERFECT for rappelling, again for the thrill seeker in all of us!!

As a Greene County Native, I may be Biased, but I honestly
 
    think Paint Creek Recreational area is one of the Finest examples of what the Great Smokey Mountains have to offer. Says Josh

My husband, daughter and I absolutely love Paint Creek! It is so peaceful. The trees offer privacy
  not found in many campgrounds and the creek provides swimming, fishing, and fun for the family. We bike and have a wonderful time. It is so cool there all year around and a perfect place to camp in a tent, pop-up or larger camper. We love it! Says Amanda

I love Paint Creek--been going there for several years---I like the peaceful atmosphere-the friendly folks and the fellowship Says John Long

There are water hookups, and there aren't many conveniences at Paint Creek Campground because it is a primitive campground.
