Beautiful park with nice tent camping sites. Bathrooms were clean (for a campground) but each had only one shower for about 15 tent sites. The have a tick advisory. This really needed to be an emphasized tick warning. Ticks were everywhere. Wear bug repellant!

We tent camped in the scout circle at Greenbelt park. It was very shady. There was plenty of room for tents, and some nice open areas for group meeting, but the ticks were horrible. They were everywhere, and unavoidable. The small bathrooms were crawling with incredibly large daddy long legs spiders. I know they don't bite, but smaller kids were... More

We stayed here 5 nights in a 30 ft class C camper with a tow vehicle. It is dry camping so if you are an RVer make sure you have a good generator during warm months. The price and proximity to DC were a huge draw for us. Four out of five days we were in DC sightseeing and one... More

We hiked the Dogwood Trail just before sunset on a Sunday evening. I love the fact that there is a place to go that is so peaceful and just down the road from where we live. It really felt like I was some place far away from home. The trail was clear, easy to hike, there were lots of trees/canvasing.... More

Decided to stay over the weekend for the Cherry Blossom festival in DC. Since this is rather close we popped in for the weekend and proceeded to regret it. Besides the never ending police and fire sirens and over whelming interstate noise there were locked bathrooms, we never did find the showers, inaccessible staff. To top off our not so... More

We decided last minute to head to DC for the Chery Blossom Festival ans was really surprised to find a NATIONAL PARK very close by. Sites hadn't been cleaned for the season, trash dumpsters were all very full. But other than that place is clean, staff very friendly and helpful. And as a senior can't beat the 8.00 a night...

Our family camped here for two nights during spring break. Only 10 min to Greenbelt Metro station. Park police station at park entrance, it does take a few minutes to get back to the campground. None of the sites have electric or water, which we knew, so it was ok, as long as your prepared. Not all restrooms have a... More

Greenbelt National Park is one of the smallest and least-featured National Parks in the U.S. However, that doesn't mean it's not a nice place. Basically, it was created to provide a National Park campground that wasn't too far from Washington, DC. For being situated inside the Capital Beltway, it is heavily wooded and green. About the only feature it has... More

Okay, Greenbelt National Park doesn't have waterfalls or cliffs or geysers, but given the location it's a nice place. If you're visiting the DC area and want to camp, this is a good choice. And if you're local and want a nice hike in the woods, this is a really good option - they have a six-mile perimeter trail as... More
