The campground is open year round. We highly recommend using the reservation company.

The campground fee is $16.00 per night. We will be increasing our camping fee to $20.00 on January 1, 2017.

There is a 50% discount ($8.00) for America the Beautiful Senior Pass and America the Beautiful Access card holders.

Greenbelt Park is proposing its first increase to fees since 2007. The proposed fee changes are for both the campground and reserved picnic areas, and would not go into effect until January 2017.

How Fees are Used
The proposed changes in fees will fund projects that directly benefit our park, like campground improvement projects starting this fall using fees collected in 2016. Planned projects include camp site refurbishment, replacing worn out picnic tables and grills, visitor center upgrades and the addition of new campfire circles.

Fees collected are to be used to fund projects that address deferred maintenance needs, provide new visitor programs and services, protect resources, and improve and rehabilitate facilities for visitors. The majority of funds used for national park management come from Congressional appropriations. By using collected recreation fees, visitors help the National Park Service cover part of the cost of their visit.
The fees also help the National Park Service improve the condition of the picnic areas, and respond to increased demand for visitor facilities and services.
