25 acre woodland playground in Greenbrier County, WV. The best of two worlds for a location! Relatively remote, but also within 30 minutes to two lovely towns... Lewisburg and White Sulphur Springs. Some trails on the property, but within 15 minutes to Greenbrier State Forest and the amenities and activities they provide (feel free to Google it for more information). The park has disc golf, too! Our land is unimproved, but there is a fire pit and a picnic table, which can be converted into a pair of benches.

The woods are home to abundant wildlife: deer, turkey, grouse, black bear, and all the critters you'd expect in the wilds of WV. In season, there are blackberry and wild blueberry bushes to complement your breakfast! The road is gravel from the main road to the lot, and is well maintained so 4 WD not needed in the warm months.

Due to the freedom from basic amenities on site, experienced campers are recommended. Unfortunately, there is cell signal (AT&T at least). The property is part of a "development" but the nearest home (there are only four on the 2.5 mile stretch of gravel road) is a good ways off.

Bring some kayaks! The Greenbrier River is a popular spot for kayaking or canoeing, and the nearest access point is about 20 minutes away. Same goes for bikes! The Greenbrier River Trail begins in Caldwell, WV (20 minutes to the trailhead) and is almost 80 miles long, ending in Cass, WV. Due to last summer's flooding (June 2016) the trail is still under repair and is impassable in some locations near Caldwell.

I just returned from an overnight camping trip to Mountaintop Solitude. It is located nearby the Greenbrier. However the experience is way more special.

I rode my motorcycle down from Columbus Ohio. At times it was raining and I thought maybe I should turn back. But when I got to the campsite I realized I had really made the right decision. It is a pristine campsite sitting up on top of the ridge looking down into the valley overlooking Lewisberg, WV--allegedly the coolest small town in America

A road takes you up about 2 1/2 miles past the Greenbrier State Park. Upon arrival my host, Joshua, had left a container full of dry kindling along with a big bucket of water to douse the fire. The fire ring is a plus. The picnic table doubles as a bench that you can lean back against while enjoying the view and the fire. The setting for my tent was perfect. There was extra firewood stacked beside trees for me to use. It was perfectly quiet – – ergo solitude.

My host met me at the exit off interstate 64. He gave me all the information I needed along with the key to get up the private road that has a gate keeping others out. He gave me all the information I needed and sent me on my way.

I woke up first thing in the morning to the magnificent sunrise, packed myself up and got on my way. Could not have been more perfect. Thank you, Joshua.

Our retreat to Mountaintop Solitude started in the valley below at Great Greenbrier State Forest. Joshua met us by the picnic pavilions and we followed him up the mountain. As a flatlander, the drive up the mountain got my heart pumping. Once we made it up to the top, any worries were shed. The site is perched over the state forest with views of Lewisburg in the distance. Joshua, pointed us towards the best trails, provided us with firewood and was on his way. We spent the evening traversing the mountainide; finding babbling brook at trail's end. At sunset all of Lewisburg was lit up, which reflected off the overcast skies. The site features a perfectly primitive setup of a picnic table and fire ring under the forest canopy. The picnic table even converts to two benches for your camp fire tales. Don't worry, the drive down is much easier, but you'll want to extend your stay atop Mountaintop Solitude any ways.

Lovely private campsite with a great view in total solitude. I went with my partner and dog and we really enjoyed our night checking out the mountain and relaxing at our tent site. Joshua was so helpful and reassuring too so it just made for a wonderful experience all around. I’d love to stay at the mountain sometime in the future and would easily recommend it to future campers.

Fire ring with a view. Time to get cooking.Spotted this cool dude while we were exploring.Peace, quiet and s'mores.One very content camper.

I had a wonderful experience camping here with a group of 4 for two nights in mid-August. This large private campsite is in a gated community that was isolated enough that we could be loud until the wee hours of the morning without disturbing any neighbors. (In fact, we didn't see any other people or vehicles the entire time we were up there.) Because it is located on a mountaintop, there were great views during the day and the nights were temperate, with relatively few biting insects (compared to other places I've camped out East, that is--but you should definitely still bring bug spray). During the day, the canopy provided enough shade that the temperature was pleasant even though there wasn't much wind. We also saw some cool wildlife and a bunch of shooting stars, which was fantastic. The only two very small negatives I can share were: the terrain at the campsite is slightly uneven (although Josh is building a platform which should remedy this issue for future campers) and making arrangements to drop off the keys took us a bit out of our way before we headed home to DC. Neither of these things very minor issues should dissuade you one bit from booking here, however. Our host (Josh) was friendly, communicative, helpful, and gracious in accommodating some schedule changes we had to make on short notice. All in all, this was a 5-star experience that will make it difficult to go back to car camping at a traditional site with neighbors, quiet hours, and the like. In sum, I highly recommend camping here if you're in the area.

This was taken with my back to the site's view of the valley and should give you a good sense of how large the place is.  (The picnic table, fire ring, and platform were situated behind me.) There's plenty of room for multiple tents.
