Welcome to Greenbelt Park, NCP-East.
We are located at 6565 Greenbelt Road in Greenbelt, Maryland.
We are just twelve miles from Washington, D.C.
For our neighbors who live and work in the Greenbelt area, we are their "backyard" national park. The places where they camp, walk the dog, picnic, go for a run, or bring their kids to explore nature and a taste of the trails.
The park also attracts visitors from across the country and around the world, which are drawn here by the recreational opportunities, stunning natural beauty, and the campground which is open all year round.
