Beautiful Anthony Creek with good size swimming hole and plenty of fishing spots. Walk over the swinging bridge and hike the mountain trail. Nice campground with some spots right on the creek. Children's playground area and the best picnic spots, including a shelter.

What's not to like? It's open, available and part of the great park system. The camping areas are kept clean. The swimming area is usally clean. The water is on the cold side, but it's still worth it. The hiking trails are maintained very well....More

Plan for a picture, picnic and peace. Beautiful swimming hole with fresh, cold spring water throughout. It a “anytime of the year” retreat, kid tested and grandmother approved-take the whole family!

I hikes the Raven Rock trail from the Greenbier. The trail was well maintained and easy to follow. There was a couple of spots with views but mostly you are in the forest.

Other than deep in the eastern mountains there are few easily accessible wildernesses like this. It has it all, beautiful wooded areas, rivers, lakes, ponds, brooks, meadows, flora and wildlife. It is simply a magnificent wonderland of nature that once covered most of the eastern...More
