Coming from North Carolina, a state with great natural beauty and state parks, but underfunded and neglected by state government, Virginia's state facilities shine forth. And this spectacular place heads them up with mountain terrain worthy of the Sierra Nevada, incredible and varied wildlife and wildflowers, a different look around every corner or bend in the trail, and spotless management...

Fall 2014 myself and 2 family members had the pleasure of visiting Grayson Highlands for the Fall Festival. This particular festival is held the last full weekend in September. I have been to the park for multiple visits but what attracted us most was the park "pony round-up and auction". The 2-day festival includes apple butter making, delicious food, music... More

We had a great stay here. We did some nice hikes, the visitor center was great. Of course, visiting the ponies was very cool! Our campground was great, and the camp host her very, very attentive. When there was a minor problem with the water pump, it was repaired within a couple hours. I highly recommend this park. It is... More

I went with my family and one of my closest friends and we all had a blast. the view is amazing, especially once we scaled an outcropping. we all loved walking and being with the small wild ponies (that weren't very wild at all). would definitely come again 😊

This was our first visit to Grayson Highlands, and a lot of folks we met were repeat visitors. I can see why--this area of the state is breathtaking. The views of the Blue Ridge Mountains from Little Pinnacle are awesome, and walking through the balds surrounded by feral ponies--how can that be anything but cool? The park itself is clean,...

We recently stayed at Grayson Highlands State Park to ride the Virginia Creeper and see the wild ponies. The hospitality couldn't have been better. The camp host checked on us and helped us build a fire in the rain, the Rangers were very friendly and helped my children make crafts, and our neighbors were very friendly. There was a lot... More

We have traveled all over the country and Grayson Highlands is by far one of our favorite parks. Truthfully the park is not very large but it packs a lot in a small package. The hiking trails to Mt Rogers are awesome with great views of the highlands and occasionally a pony or two. The picnic areas are nice and... More

We rode motorcycles here with friends. The views are beautiful. The grounds are well maintained. We didn't get to see the ponies, which was one of the reasons we came. We're planning a return trip with a picnic lunch so, maybe we will see them next trip. The museum is interesting with a lot of interesting memorabilia. Staff was helpful... More
