Greenbrier Bicycle Ride. Follow the beautiful Green Brier River through the most scenic country our nation has to offer. We’ll offer a 12, 25, or 50 mile bike ride. This will provide an opportunity to cover many of the requirements necessary for the bicycling merit badge. Greenbrier River Trail

Greenbrier Camp Grounds - Outfitter providing the canoes for our day on the water.

Greenbrier State Forest. Talk about having plenty of room! Our camping area is HUGE and the field up above our area is also HUGE. Cloudless nights will be filled with stars as we are far from any major light source. Nothing commercial here, just wide open spaces. We’re locating rented portable restrooms on site but fear not, porcelain is right across the road at the regular campground including showers. The pool down the way will also be open including a bath house.
