We camped here for 3 nights with our little dog in July and were pleasantly surprised. First, there were no flies or mosquitoes--occasionally a gnat or two. Secondly, there were... read more

This is the place to come in the summer with your kiddos. It's inexpensive and clean. Ive never had a problem getting in during the week, but it often crowded on weekends, so call ahead before heading out so you don't get turned away at the gate

We camped here for 3 nights with our little dog in July and were pleasantly surprised. First, there were no flies or mosquitoes--occasionally a gnat or two. Secondly, there were very few campers, so it was very quiet. Also, it was much cooler here in the mountains than in DC area. We took our dog hiking on the trail that... More

This being our first visit was a lovely one. The lake was calm and skys blue. There are 3 lifeguards on duty at all times. At one end there is a volleyball net and the other pontoon rentals. There are numerous places to grill and plenty of picnic tables for having lunch. Having a concession stand, first aid station and... More

I've been here 3 times with my 5 and 3 year old. Our first visit during school year (I homeschooled) the beach was practically empty save a few families. Mt kids loved it especially trying to catch little fish that swim there. It's not overwhelming at all in terms of depth and size of Lake. I advise to bring beach... More

A friend and I brought our four young children to spend the afternoon at the lake. Greenbrier has a lovely calm lake with a wide sandy beach and a grassy area bordering the beach for play. There are plenty of grills and picnic tables spread across the area. We didn't grill, but it looked fairly busy for a summer weekday.... More

We wanted to look at the camping area but it was full so we couldn't drive through but the parts we could see looked great. there is a separate beach for campers from... More

My family went to the beach and found it very crowded. It was just not what I expected. There was frequent loud announcement just like a swimming pool in the city. We left without doing any grill. I heard it is better during the week.

Great for camping! We visited this year for our annual family camping trip. The campground was sold out. Although, the campgrounds were full it didnt seem crowded, the campers werent rowdy and the bathrooms were clean. We hiked a few of the trails to burn energy off the kids. The park is popular as the lines to enter were long... More

Greenbrier beach lake is our family's favorite summer spot. The lake is very clean. We always enjoy our day there every time we visit. I can't comment about the direction since I always take the back road to get there. The back road I take is very beautiful- passing through shepherdstown and Antietam battlefield. It's nice and beautiful lake that... More

A nice setting for camping in the mountains. Each wooded campsite is equipped with fire pit and picnic table. There is a lake with a beach to cool off in the hot summer days. This campground is close to historic areas such as Antietam, Harper's Ferry, etc. A very nicely run and clean campground.
