This is a beautiful state park. The sites, while gravel and some not completely level for a long-rig, they are more than adequate with clean and raked "patio" areas. While the sites are heavily treed, they posed no problem for us, even tough we require a 12'8" clearance. Over-the-are television reception was a bit spotty but cell reception excellent. We would definitely stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nightly rate reflects senior discount. A wonderful campground.Well maintained and layer out. 90 percent are wooded sites. A well defined level parking spot with about a 100 ft between campers. Our cellphone worked and we found several local TV stations with the antenna. The location was great near I-70 on Rt 40 between Hagarstown and Fredrick Md. A short drive to Antietam battlefield and Harpers Ferry. A great spot for exploring the area. A 10 in my book We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Be careful on what length you declare. It is dumb; the reservation people say the maximum length is 30 feet, but there are 10 or 12 sites more than 60 feet and probably at least as many that are 45 feet, in the power loop. Lake is shallow with poor swimming. Antietam and Harper's Ferry are less than 15 minutes away, and if you're a civil war buff, these are very interesting places to visit. Nearest town is about 15 miles west, but get on Interstate 70 and go to far west side of Hagerstown to other north-south interstate highway, and this is where all the large stores are. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects half price senior discount with the free MD Golden Age pass issued on site. We stayed in site C-6 with 30 amp electric, $26.74 per night plus service charge. One night was free and the two day service charge was $8.78, $3 per day plus $1 out-of-state and tax. Our total for two nights was $35.52. Overall a very nice CG, camping pads are level but small. So the driveway is very important for larger rigs. We are just over 35' and the pad appx. 24' x 24'. So most of our front was in the drive, but long and level so we had a good site. Many sites work for larger rigs but you really got to pick and choose as some drives have pretty steep grades and some sites are backed by trees preventing you from backing up too far. Dump station is very nice, but two double 90 degree turns to the very close gate makes the exit a bit tricky. Overall we had nice quiet stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Maryland and nearby Virginia state parks are among the best in the country and this one is no exception. The grounds are wonderfully maintained. The staff is friendly, and they have great activities for kids, including nature shows in the amphitheater and ice cream socials in one of the buildings. The lake has a nice sandy area and there's lots of hiking. If you're in decent shape and can handle some hills, the biking is great too. The heavily wooded sites are spaced out differently but, unlike commercial campgrounds everywhere, you'll never be right on top of your neighbors. (That's the main reason I stay in state parks most of the time.) No Wi-Fi, of course, but my Sprint broadband worked decently (three of four bars). Other nice SPs in the area include Shenandoah River State Park (near Front Royal) and Rocky Gap SP (near Cumberland). We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great place to stay, best in the area by far. Stayed a few days and enjoyed the ambiance of the park. Decent sized spaces. Facilities are older but the same is expected for state parks. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped in the Dogwood loop because it allows pets. The sites were all very clean and the crushed gravel was raked out and the fire pit was cleaned out. We backed into the site and found there was no electric on this loop but since we had our dog we had to make the best of it. The restrooms were very clean and even had soap to wash your hands with at the sink! We took our bikes but the hills are pretty steep. Up in the far corner of the Dogwood loop is a play field with volleyball, badmitten, soccer, frisbee, and a picnic area. There are lots of hiking trails and a lake for swimming. The loud speakers at the lake were kind of comical and annoying. If you go on the weekend you need to be at the lake very early to get a table. This was our second time camping here and I'm sure we will be back. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Excellent for a state park.. Has nice shady sites with great pads for tents. Hosts were very nice. Has nice clean bathrooms with hot showers. Only downside is that they have a beautiful beach with amazing landscape in the background, but if you are not staying the "A" loop, you have a good, long hike to get there. We camped here in a Tent.
We love this campground and have camped here several times. The sites are fairly private, wooded and spaced apart nicely. It is a beautiful area. There is a great beach and lake for swimming. There is a nature center and activities on weekends, such as movies and ice cream socials. There is a camp store on the beach area. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Absolutely spotless, beautiful state park with nicely sized, wooded sites. Like all Maryland state parks, everything is top-notch (rich state!). Personnel are friendly and helpful; LOTS of patrols at night give you a good feeling of security. Bathrooms are a little dated, but certainly acceptable. As long as you're in reasonably good shape, the biking on the hilly roads within the park is great. On weekend nights they have wonderful ranger shows. One night we saw a comparison of camping gear from different eras, from civil war times to modern times. On another night they brought out some animals (snakes, huge horned owl, and a falcon); it was awesome. The lake is very nice, with a fairly large, sandy beach area, lots of tables, and a big pavilion. One word of warning - the lake area can get absolutely packed on summer weekends from day use visitors. My son attends a "Hooked on Fish, Not Drugs" fishing camp here every summer and loves it. Also, be advised that they close the main front gate (from Route 40) after a certain time and don't open it up until a certain time in the AM; plan accordingly. The camping area has a barrier that prevents day-use folks from driving around the campsites, which is nice; you need a pass code to operate the gate. Finally, a Sheetz convenience store is about two miles away and tons of shopping, including restaurants (Outback), movie theaters, etc. are about ten miles away in Hagerstown, in case you need some last-minute supplies or you pick a rainy weekend and need stuff to do. State parks don't get much better than this. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is located in northwest Maryland, and the Appalachian Mountains pass through the park. It has a freshwater lake that was manmade, boating and fishing. They claim that the lake is the nicest in the area. There are trails in the park for hiking. Electric hookups are available in the just the C loop. The loops are hilly but you can get your RV level. Nice sites and the bathrooms are ok. The swimming area is nice but a good hike away from the camping loops. Nice rangers and workers at the entrance station. There is a visitor center in the park with exhibits about the area. Nice stay We camped here in a Motorhome.
Hiking trails of varying difficulty, a well-equipped camp store, a lovely beach, family-oriented weekend activities, good security, boating and swimming in delightful Greenbrier Lake ... if only the restroom facilities were improved! Still, all things considered, this state park campground is a gem. We camped here in a Tent.
Since our last stay, several years ago, we have seen both improvements and declines. On the positive side, there are a greater number of family-oriented, planned activities on weekends (ice cream socials, bingo, ranger-naturalist programs, scavenger hunts, children's craft programs). Other positives are a number of scenic hiking trails; a nice beach and swimming area, most easily accessible from the Ash Loop; paddle boat and rowboat rentals; and the rigorous enforcement of nighttime quiet hours. On the other hand, the rest room and shower facilities were inadequately cleaned and are in need of some serious updating. All in all, though, our family liked this campground a great deal, and we plan to return again soon. We camped here in a Tent.
We love this park! We have stayed here many times and love the huge wooded sites and lovely lake. The bathrooms are adequate but do have some bugs. There are camp hosts that are there to help if needed. There are no water hookups but we use a jug for washing needs. We love this place because we don't get that usual packed in feeling as with many campgrounds. We feel like we are really camping and enjoying the outdoors! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This was a great place to stay. We were in the Dogwood loop. The park is clean and quiet. We had a pull-through site that was not level, but we were able to make it work. Most of the other sites are level, however. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This excellent state park includes a beach and lifeguard-monitored (lake) swimming area, canoe and rowboat rentals, a nature center, and a number of hiking trails. Sites are gravel, with lots of trees, and arranged in loops: Ash Loop is closest to the swimming area (and most convenient for those with small children); Cedar Loop has (20 amp) electric hookups; and Dogwood Loop is the quietest. There are planned activities (including an ice cream social and ranger-naturalist talks) on weekends, and security/noise control is provided by the quite available and generally friendly campground "hosts." This was our family's first campground, and it remains one of our nostalgic favorites. We camped here in a Tent.
