Grindstone versus Beartree Campground


I was hoping someone could give me there opinion on these two campgrounds. Since they are on federal land there isn't a whole of information on them. We have a 7 and 4 year old and will be tent camping in July.

We've been to Grindstone Campground but not Beartree. Grindstone has some nice walks around ponds, if I remember correctly. They are both in a beautiful area of Virginia - we hike in that area quite often. Another option might be Grayson Highlands State Park - lots of families tent camp there and enjoy the easier access to hikes and walks along streams, waterfalls, mountains and views of the wild ponies. Hope someone has been to Beartree and can give you some insight.

Beartree is a beautiful camping and family venue. It offers fishing inside and outside of the park. It has a lake with a beach. Is pet friendly, and has clean facilities with hot showers. It is located close to the Virginia Creeper Trail, as well as many other trails and fishing streams.
