“Nice campground.”

Greenbrier State Park
Ranked #2 of 13 things to do in Boonsboro
Attraction details
Reviewed January 19, 2012

We enjoyed our stay here. There was a group of young people in the next loop who were pretty noisy but they seemed to be having a good time. The campground is hilly but the sites are shady and each have a large level space for the picnic table and a gravel tent pad. The restroom facilities are clean and well maintained. Don't go to the lake area after sunset- you are not allowed to be there! There is a really nice nature center near the campground and behind it is a steep trail that leads to the AppalachianTrail.

If you are staying near the Antietam battlefield, this is a great place.

Our church group had 10 camp sites. Beautiful park. Nice beach. Great layout. HOWEVER, the camp host and park rangers had it out for us from the moment our campers started arriving. They didn't know we were all together until the last night either. They were hawking every move we made as though we were criminals, starting with being told we had illegal firewood. Mind you - the website says it is SUGGESTED to not bring your own wood. SO, we brought our own wood - LOCAL WOOD - from 30 minutes away. We were told to remove it from the park. Oh, and if you do buy your own wood, you get 3-4 pieces of milled wood - that is, the bark edge piece that's left over the log goes through the mill FOR $6.50!!!!! At night, while drinking a soda, all of a sudden a flashlight beams on the can while a voice says IS THAT A BEER?? We were not loud or rowdy. In fact, at that point, we were all at our own sites because most of us had sleeping children. The next night there were a few families fellowshipping quietly at the site next to mine. They were quiet enough that I didn't even realize there was a group there. They were reminded about quiet time (an hour before quiet time) and TOLD that everyone needed to go back to their own camp sites. Another memeber of our group had a golf cart in the back of their truck to take on their next camping excursion where golf carts are permitted. Of course, they were drilled as to why they have a golf cart and made VERY AWARE that no golf carts are permitted at Greenbrier (what do you think the camp host and park ranger drive around in?) Less than satisfied.

We were looking for a quiet, secluded, lake for a brisk winter hike. Greenbrier was the perfect spot. A smallish, clean, frozen lake with an easy, wooded hike that allowed our dog to sniff out new smells and allowed us almost complete solitude. The park is pristine and looks like the perfect swimming hole in summer...although probably more crowded. There is no camping in the winter, which added to the peacefulness of our hike. There are also no ammenities in the winter except the ranger station/gift shop. We look forward to a summer visit.

This is an excellent state park. It has great camping sites in the woods, a great swimming lake, paddle boat rentals, and several great trails for all skill levels. This is not a hidden gem though. They had to close the park both days (a weekend) I was there because so many day visitors came to use the lake. The lake, by they way, has a long beach, but they do not let you go out very far. I would say the very deepest part was 4 feet. Finally, this is only a little over an hour from Washington, DC, making it a great park for someone trying to find a campground reasonably close to DC.
