We toured the Highlands State Park and visited the gift/museum on the top. Purchased some gifts. Learned a lot about the crooked trail in Virginia. Tried to see some wild ponies but didn't. The scenery was still worth it . By the way you have to go and find out about the ponies. They were really not wild. It was... More

This is serenity at its finest. It's so quiet there you could hear a pin drop. Make sure you wear your walking shoes! We hiked up to the huge rocks to get a great view. As soon as we walked through the gate we were greeted by the wild ponies! They are so friendly. It does cost a little to... More

I Rv'd here with my kids (teen and young), my parents, and friends. It was a great experience. The amenities were clean and easily accessible, the views were amazing and there were activities provided at the visitor center for the children. We well definitely be going back.

This is a terrific state park -- we had a great time during our camping stay. The campground facilities were very good -- very friendly staff and hosts -- and a good mix of tent sites and RV sites. We stayed at a tent site with two small children, and really enjoyed our experience. They offer fun activities for children... More

Our family recently visited Grayson Highlands State Park and its one of our favorites. We stayed in the park and the staff were fantastic. Our host came around often to check on us and offer firewood and ice. Each night we took the kids to a presentation by one of the rangers - both the bat and salamander presentations were... More

I love this park. First time hiking it, went to see the ponies, lots of colts at this time of year, went to top of mount Wilson, had a picnic lunch, it was amazing views of the mountain ranges. Would love to come back and camp. It is really worth the trip, take the kids. You will not regret it.
