    'natural diving board' and fishing for all you Trout Lovers. Says Sallie (see picture)

We just finished our 6 day sentence at the Greenbrier Island State Prison. I should have known right away when we got there that the owner
 would be a problem. We arrived and opened up the doors and let our dogs out. It was all of 2 minutes before they were chained up. She came huffing over and told us that she received two phone calls from people complaining about our dogs being loose. Two minutes. I would like to know what cell phone service they have, because I had no service. We immediately were scolded and told that we have to follow the rules - no dogs on the grass, use the dog run at the entrance to the park (watch out for the 60 mph cars coming around the corner), short leash, etc, etc, etc.

I also like the fact that even though we are paying to stay there, we have to pay to take a shower. That a first. Oh
 
yea, there are no signs telling just how much it costs. I was told by our neighbor that it was a dollar to start and a quarter to keep it going. I was actually in the shower, and the owner lady knocked on the shower door while I was in there and started scolding me for putting in too much change ''Do not do that again - Only put in one quarter - Don't put in another one until the water shuts off!!!'' Apparently since she's the owner it is ok for her to come into the Male shower areas. Oh yea, want to use your electric shaver or hair dryer? Bring more change because this cost too. Not sure how much, because it's not posted.
The next day, I was walking my dogs on the gravel as she outlined and she chased me down on her bike and scolded me again for being by the pavilion. I never left gravel, but apparently I was wrong again. The dog run was joke. You can't get to it without going into the highway. My 12 year old retriever was scared to death.
Thirsty? No alcohol allowed. I'm 40 years old and I can't drink a beer during the 95 degree weather. Yea right. I'll just pretend I'm in high school again and hope the warden doesnít catch me.
Big sites? Not here. We had the privilege of having our neighbor's sewer hookup right next to our picnic table. That made meals enjoyable. And the flies, that was a real treat.
One night, my 14 month old daughter was very tired. Like any baby will do, she cried. Again, the magic cell phone service yielded not two but three complaints to the Gestapo. So donít bring you babies either. Everyone there must have satellite phones or maybe they run land lines to each camp site that we didnít know about.
As far as the laundry, if you can get in there, be prepared to spend 15 minutes reading the signs with all the rules. ''do not open the washer while its running'' ... ''Do not do this and do not do that...'' blah blah blah. And in no circumstances allow your laundry to run past 8:00pm. This will interfere with the owner washing her Mercedes Benz. Too bad the owner doesnít spend half of the time she spends on her car, cleaning the bathrooms. If she did, maybe the downwind sites wouldnít have to deal with the constant urine smell.
You like dumpsters. This is your place. We were lucky enough to have one about 30 yards from our site. This along with the smell from the bathrooms brought a nice assortment of flies.
All in all, this was easily the worst campground we have stayed in. I could keep going with the complaints I have, but I thing you get the picture. Very rude and controlling owners. I will never return. I would definitely not recommend it to anyone. As a matter of fact, we were in Pigeon Forge at a Wal-Mart, and was approached by a gentleman with an RV looking for a place to stay. We told him to stay away from Greenbrier Island. Says Chuck (Mon, 29 Jun 2009)

The owner/host of this campground runs it like bootcamp. Not friendly. We were gong to camp there but at the check in decided it was not going to be a place we would enjoy because of the host attitude. You would think they would be a little friendlier considering the campgrounds were more than half empty. Says Camper (Sun, 26 Sep 2010)
