Absolutely no driving or parking in the grass unless it is a designated parking spot. Vehicle hang tags must be visible on your rearview mirror or dash at all times. Vehicles parked without a valid hang tag are subject to towing at the owner’s expense.

When booking your site, please pay close attention to the dimensions of the site so that you have plenty of room to park your vehicle(s) in addition to your RV.

**We do not have an overflow/visitor parking lot. If you are bringing a utility trailer, tow dolly, or an additional vehicle than what is allowed and you do not have room in your site for it, you will be required to book an additional site or find parking off property.


All visitors must register at the front office and obtain a parking pass. Day visitors must leave by 10:00pm or will be considered overnight visitors and will be charged a fee. We do not have a visitor parking area, so registered campers must have space in their site for the visitor to park. Registered campers are responsible for their visitors and will be held financially responsible for any damage to our property. Please make sure your guests are aware of campground rules.

Fires, Fire Pits, and Grills

Fires are allowed in designated fire rings only and must not be left unattended. Do not move the fire rings. If your fire ring is too close to your camper to safely burn a fire, please alert the staff and we will move your fire ring. DO NOT burn plastic, glass, or garbage. Do not burn logs that are larger than the fire ring. There is a charcoal grill at each site. These are for charcoal only. Firewood, charcoal, and related items are available at the office for purchase. Fires must be extinguished before leaving for the day and before final check out.


Please keep your site tidy! DO NOT leave your trash out overnight. The dumpsters are located near both main bath houses for your convenience. The dumpsters have chains across the top to help keep bears out and there is a small latch on one side. Please latch the chain back in place after disposing of your garbage. If management must clean up your site, there will be a $25 fee.

Tent Camping

All food must be stored in your vehicle overnight and any time you are not present at your site due to the possibility of bear activity. Make sure all garbage has been taken to the dumpsters prior to leaving for the day and before dark. ABSOLUTELY no tent camping on grass. Tents must be on gravel pads. NO ARRIVALS DURING QUIET HOURS.

RV Camping

Pressure regulators are recommended. All sewage connections must have an airtight seal by use of a rubber collar or elbow adapter. If you do not have one, you will be required to purchase one. If your camper is equipped with outdoor LED lighting, please be courteous to your neighbors and turn off those lights once you go to bed. These lights can be extremely bright and disruptive to both the nighttime ambience of the campground and your neighbors’ sleep.

Swimming and Tubing

Swim at your own risk. Children under 12 must be supervised by an adult. Water shoes are recommended. Do not cross through an occupied campsite to reach the river. River depth and speed can fluctuate very quickly, even if it is not raining at the campground. If you suddenly notice the water turning muddy, exit the river immediately as this is a sign that flash flooding is imminent. Management will alert guests to any possibilities of flooding or inclement weather. We have a PA system throughout the campground and in case of emergencies, we will make an announcement. Life jackets are strongly recommended for all ages when swimming or tubing in the river. All persons, including visitors, legally agree to release Greenbrier Campground and its employees from any and all injuries or damages incurred while swimming or tubing.


Children must be supervised by a parent or guardian at all times. Guests are liable for any damages caused by children that are not supervised. Please advise children to respect the privacy of other campers by not walking through other campsites or disturbing their belongings. Children under the age of 8 must have an adult with them in the restrooms. Please caution children to not approach unknown dogs unless they have owners’ permission.
