Grayson Highlands was a wonderful July respite from the heat and humidity of the Washington DC area, at least 15-20 degrees cooler than at home. Standard tentsite #012 was perfect for us with our 10 x 14 tent. We arrived early and drove around to...More

Wow! Great hikes with amazing views! Take the rhododendron trail to see the ponies. Great views from the giant rocks just off of this trail. Greatest view of mountains is from the twin pinnacle trail.

Hiked a few trails in the park. Breathtaking views of the mountains! The wild horses were a bonus! And the ladies in the welcome center were so very helpful in getting us directions on how to get home, since we had no phone service.

Yes, We were there recently this spring and we brought our dog with on the Rhododendron Trail and the Appalachian Trail. As far as I could tell, dogs were allowed on all trails, but keep in mind some are strenuous for pets... More
