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.

The family and I went camping there June 27-29 2014. We had lot 27 in the cedar area. The park is just okay to me. I like Cunningham Falls much better especially the bathrooms. The bathrooms at Greenbrier are clean however there is no privacy once you get out of the shower. Opposed to Cunningham falls where you have a... More

We go camping every Father's day weekend with our neighbors and family. If you have a large group with children I recommend this place. Our group has children aged 8 to 18. It's also pet friendly but not allowed by the lake area. The lake area has snack bars and picnic tables. There are a lot of activities for the... More

Just wanted to add a note for the people who visited last November and found showers without shower curtains. There are shower curtains for each stall and one to divide the shower area. They are all removed once a week and washed with bleach, but there is an extra set that should be in use while one set is being... More

So glad we stopped here on our from West Virginia. We will be sure to come back, as the facilities are beautiful and maintained well. A lovely place for a picnic, and a Barb B que, and a dip in the lake. There are lifeguards in season. Not to be missed, as parking is easy, and makes a refreshing stop.
