Greenbrier State Park

Greenbrier State Park is a multi-use park located on South Mountain with plenty of recreational opportunities. The 42-acre man-made lake and beach draw many visitors who enjoy swimming, canoeing, hiking, picnicking, fishing and hunting. The lake is stocked with trout, largemouth bass and bluegill. A connector trail to the Appalachian Trail is located in the park. Hiking trails meander through a variety of wildlife habitats and afford a view of the area's geological history. Picnic tables, grills and playgrounds are available in the day-use area. Four lakefront gazeboes are available for rent. A wide variety of birds, animals, fish, turtles, frogs and snakes can be found in the park. Visitors can also spot many different species of wildflowers and trees. A visitor center is open year-round and a nature center near the lake is open during the summer.
