If you plan to camp in an RV in northern Maryland, you’re in luck. Where history meets mountainous beauty, Greenbrier State Park is only one hour from Baltimore, 45 minutes from Gettysburg, and half an hour south of Frederick in a town called Boonsboro.
The park was created in 1963. Over the next 15 years, the state funded the further development of the park, building picnic tables, trails, cabins, and beaches. Greenbrier is now a very popular park due to its location and scenic beauty. The two main draws of the park would be the hiking trails through the Appalachian Mountains and the man-made 42-acre Greenbrier Lake.
Whether you're swimming, hiking, birdwatching, or museum touring, this park is conveniently located to take care of those needs. Rent an RV in Washington County to start planning your trip to Maryland.
Greenbrier State Park shares its borders with a portion of the Appalachian Trail, so you know the hiking trails are going to be great. Strap on your hiking boots because this park has 11 miles of wooded trails to explore. Make sure you know your limitations because the trails range from moderate to strenuous in difficulty. Enjoy the vibrant beauty of the Appalachian Mountains, where the scenery alone will give you moments worth remembering.
RV camping at Greenbrier is one of the best ways to discover the park. Tow in your boat or put on your swimwear and head down to Greenbrier Lake, perfect for any sort of water sport. It has 1,000 feet of sandy shoreline used for swimming. Motorized boats are allowed on the water, but only if they are electric.
Anglers love fishing on Greenbrier Lake. Every year, the water is stocked with tons of rainbow trout just waiting to be hooked. Anyone over the age of 16 must have a valid fishing license and follow the rules and regulations set by the state of Maryland.
Greenbrier State Park's RV campground offers more than 160 sites for campers. Of those, 40 campsites come equipped with 30-amp electric hookups. No water hookups are available here, but there's a water spigot and dump station nearby. All sites are back-in and come standard with a fire ring and a picnic table. Greenbrier State Park campers will be able to use the public restrooms and hot showers located within walking distance from each campsite.
Greenbrier also comes with a playground for the kids (or the children in us all) and a picnic shelter to host bigger outdoor gatherings. There's also a camp store which is a great place to stock up on camping goodies, firewood, and snacks. The park has no Wi-Fi; however, most major cell phone providers should have good service in the area. Maryland State Parks take pride in their effort to adapt to ADA regulations and do their best to make everything ADA-accessible. Make sure to contact the park ahead of time to ensure all your needs are met.
Under an hour’s drive north of the park, you’ll find the historic town of Gettysburg, VA. Visit museum after museum as you hop from a Civil War monument to a military park to a covered bridge to a heritage festival. This town has it all. Take guided tours from very knowledgeable locals or check it out on your own. See accurate historical reenactments the way they happened back in the 1800s. Interested in the supernatural? Gettysburg is said to be flooded with haunting tales of ghosts. Learn about all the famous battles and speeches made in this remarkable town.
Right around the corner from Greenbrier, you’ll discover Hagerstown, and you’ll be glad you did. Sit down to a fancy dinner at one of the cocktail bars, or grab something quick at one of the local burger joints. You can enjoy a night at the theater or bounce among the stars at the planetarium. If you’re fascinated by nature, there's a trout hatchery just up the road that's open to the public. Bring the family up to Hagerstown for a short evening trip or for the whole day. It’s close enough to the park so you won’t be too far from your site.
Greenbrier campers also frequent the town of Frederick. It's less than 30 minutes away and has enough activities to plan a day around. Check out the historic Weinberg Theater, built in 1926, and catch a movie, film festival, or play. Saunter down the wine trail which takes you through six different wineries set in the luxurious rolling hills. Or maybe you want to go on a safari? There's a wildlife preserve in town that's family-friendly and allows you to meet exotic animals from all over the world. Make sure to set aside a day to take your crew to Frederick and discover what this lovely town has to offer.
Greenbrier is centrally located between a few populated towns where gas stations and food are easily accessible. Make sure to fill your motorhome rental’s tank before you jump back on the highway, and while you’re at it, grab a bite to eat at any of the fun local spots in Frederick or Hagerstown. Then, you could take I-70 into Baltimore or north into Pennsylvania.
