    Few places on Earth can inspire as much as the diverse landscape found throughout the Appalachian Mountains. Greenbrier State Park is no exception, nestled right on the 42 Acre man-made Greenbrier Lake. Campers that visit will be greeted with white sandy beaches and family-friendly recreation. Camping here is an experience to remember, thanks to the multitude of options available to entertain yourself.

    The lake provides a great location for practically any water activities you can think of. While you’re not allowed to put a motorized boat in, you can use a a small electric motor boat, or even paddle boards. There’s areas to rent Canoes, Kayaks, Paddle Boards, and more nearby. In addition, fishing is another extremely popular activity here. If you bring a rod out, you can find Trout, Bass, and Blue Gill. For anyone over 16, a Maryland Angler's License is required, and all Maryland fishing laws apply. There is also a 500 acre hunting area, where general hunting is permitted.

    Perhaps most notable is the various hiking trails found throughout the park. More than 11 miles of trails wind through and twist around the local geography, revealing the various quirks and features of the land. On the eastern edge of the park, Bartman Hill can be found, which is also where part of the Appalachian trail passes through. Aside from hiking, there is also an ADA accessible visitor center. What’s more, there’s even a beach wheelchair!

    Throughout the park, there are 165 campsites available for reservation. 40 of these campsites even have electric hookups. Furthermore, there are bathhouses located throughout with hot-water showers. There’s also a dump station for those planning on staying here in a van or RV. Fires are allowed on all campsites but must be kept within the fire rings. According to the state park website, pets are allowed in the Cedar and Dogwood camp loops with a few conditions. For one, Pets are only allowed on trails outside day-use area. Additionally, pets are allowed in day-use area and lake from the day after Labor Day to the Friday before Memorial Day.

    Nightly rates for campsites start at $21.49. If you choose to reserve a campsite with electric, expect to pay $27.49. Lake Front Gazebos (capable of sheltering 32) are available for day-use rent at $100. Other fees and fares may still apply, so check out the Maryland State Park website for more information before booking.

    There are 165 campsites offering conveniently located bathhouses with hot showers. Forty sites have electric hookups.

    Sky Meadows State Park Campground, near Delaplane, VA, is a fantastic spot for those looking to dip their toes into backcountry camping without straying too far from civilization. This place is all about simplicity and nature. You’ll need to hike about a mile to reach the campsites, which are tucked away in the woods, offering a real sense of seclusion and peace.

    Each campsite comes equipped with a bear box, fire ring, picnic table, and a tent pad. The park has done a great job of making sure you have what you need without overloading you with amenities. There are vault toilets available, and while there's no running water, you can find a non-potable water pump near the restroom. Just remember to boil the water before drinking.

    Firewood is available for purchase on the honor system, so bring some cash. The campsites are well-spaced, giving you a bit of privacy even when the campground is full. The park rangers are friendly and keep the place clean and stocked.

    The trails here are a highlight. You’ll find yourself hiking through beautiful rolling hills and wooded areas. Some trails can get muddy, especially after rain, but the views and the experience are worth it. The park also has some historical areas and open fields where families often picnic and fly kites.

    Wildlife is abundant, so keep an eye out for deer, owls, and even the occasional bear track. If you're into birdwatching, you'll love the variety of birds you can spot during the day.

    Overall, Sky Meadows State Park Campground is a great spot for a beginner backpacking experience or just a peaceful night under the stars. Just make sure you're prepared for a bit of a hike and the rustic charm of backcountry camping.
