Original Greenlee Campground

We are a family-owned and operated business located on Cherokee Lake in Rutledge, Tennessee. Greenlee Campground was built on the Greenlee family’s farmland in the early 1970s and has been in our family since the late 1980s.

This ‘original’ Greenlee offers only long-term (Seasonal) Campsites. Please see either Greenlee of MAY SPRINGS or Greenlee of FALL CREEK for short-term campsites. We also offer cabin rentals, boat rentals, full-service marina, and boat sales & service featuring Sylvan, Starcraft, and Viaggio Pontoons powered by either Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, or Mercury outboards.
