Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
August 7 Family fun times by Faythe Africa-Ward
Ive been coming here since I was a little girl with my family & now I take my own family here & it has become thier favorite place to visit during the summer. The people are friendly & camp sites are clean. They have plenty of activities for the whole family to have fun with & fishing hiking & swimming. The only bad thing is during the weekend the beach area is over crowded with picnicers only coming for the day. Other than that we love this park!
August 17 nice camping by Yearly Camper
I have always camped in state parks. This is first year at greenbrier. The camp grounds were really nice. Bathrooms clean and nice hot water. The lake area was not all that. The bathrooms were dirty and the beach was so crowded with picnicers there was no room to play with grandkids. I really think a area should be set aside for the campers.

August 17 GREAT by Newbie
I have not been camping for long, just a year. I have been to many state parks though where camping is available and this place is great. The sites are awesome, great people, and the activities are fun. The water in the lake is the most crystal clear and clean water I have swam in. This place is great and I recommend in to everyone.
