  • We brought our family here to camp for the weekend .The kids had a blast there is even a nice playground for them to play on returning again some day.  more »
  • We haven't been here in years, and glad we made it back. The campground is quiet, most of the sites are well spaced out. Most sites are well shaded.  more »
  • I love going to greenwood park on a super hot day the water is always is so relaxing and quiet the days i have been there. You can have a picnic too.  more »
  • Great place for outdoor adventures for all ages. Hiking, swimming, canoeing and other activities in a beautiful mountainous setting. Also is a historical site telling/showing the Greenwood Furnace facilities.
  • This is a really nice place to come and while away an afternoon. There are hiking trails that range from an easy 1/4 mile or so loop around the lake to, well, as long as you want to walk really. From here you can string together hikes staying almost entirely on trails (rather than dirt roads) that are pretty much as long as you want to go. If you're really hardcore you can through-hike the 68 miles to Cowans Gap State Park. For a more leisurely time you can sit on the beach and soak up some sunbeams, or just take a gentle amble around the park and enjoy the wildlife.
  • Very cold water, nice picnic area. And museum.
  • Beautiful place for a wedding whether it's in the park or at the small Stone Church. Dayze Gone Bye Carriage Rides of Allensville PA we're on standby to transport the bride and groom to the Pavilion after the wedding. The park ranger was wonderful and assisting.
  • What a great little place, swimming in a lake with a sand beach, lots of grills and picnic tables, nicely marked nature trails and easy hikes. some awesome scenery. A Historic village to explore. A really great place!!!!!
