We spent our honeymoon on Dogwood loop in 1975 which was also our 1st camping trip ever ! After 9 days of BIG FUN, we are lifetime campers . Was our faverite campground till we bought our own lot and travel trailer in VA. Haven't been there in 8 years... but we're taking the 6 grandkids this summer !

Sadly this olace has gone very downhill since I was a child. They let anyone in, literally anyone. People hang their roasting pigs in trees, change their babies on the sand and then throw their diapers into the lake, cat fights and teenagers screaming and slipping fingers into unattended bags, criminals who hang around in packs and assault young women,...

We loved how convenient the park was located by the Appalachain Trail. There was a wide selection for pet friendly camp sites. There were many campers in the fall and there was even a race of friendly runners there that weekend. One park ranger wasn't as friendly as the rest,but that wouldn't deter us from camping here again. The campsites... More

Camped here for a weekend in September. Camp sites were nice, although we'd inadvertently reserved an accessible site, which meant that the fire ring was elevated about 3 feet off the ground on a concrete pad. Easy on our backs, but the heat went up and over us. Our main issue was the highway noise. We didn't realize that, although... More

The beach is nice. A little crowded with Non-English folks on holidays. The camp sites are nice with private gate with code, the bathrooms are nice, the camp hosts are very friendly and helpful. There is expensive ice and firewood to buy. No camp store. We too got the militaristic initiation for talking past 10 pm with beer. Four rangers... More

On the face of it Greenbrier seems like a nice park - it's right next to the Appalachian trail, with other nearby trails. It's clean, with well kept bathrooms. There's a large man-made lake. All of these things originally attracted me to this campground, which is why I drove here from DC past other, closer campgrounds. When my friends and... More

Stayed here for a weekend of family camping. Nice quiet sites although he sites could be larger - could not extend the awning as it would have hung over the camp fire ring (not a recommended thing to do). Bathrooms were clean. Lake swimming area was very full - seemed like every 45 minutes everyone had to get out of... More

Brought family visiting from out of town and they absolutely loved the park. There are plenty of areas to set up some chairs and blankets and enjoy the scenery and the water. Our family could not get over how we are lucky enough to have the cool water to swim in while having the beautiful mountains as a backdrop. We... More

We headed to Greenbrier State Park this past weekend to get a break from the heat. The park was packed, to the point that no one else was allowed in past 1pm. It was 4th of July weekend so I am not sure if its like this every weekend. Despite the crowds the park was clean and everyone was very... More

The campgrounds are great and the lake is lovely. There are areas for grilling both within the campground and by the lake.
