For Air Travel/Hotel....
Lewisburg, WV is about 15 -20 minutes away. Although, I dont think there are any hotels outside of the Greenbrier.

You may want to consider Roanoke, VA it should be about 1.5 hours away and for people traveling on the same dates I can offer a car pool.

Beckley, WV is about 1 hour away but may be a more expensive flight

Charleston, WV is about 2 hours away

Covington ,VA is about 20-30 minutes from the Greenbrier an about 1 hour from Roanoke, VA

There are hotels in Lewisburg. I am not sure if there are any open rooms left though. Lewisburg is a great little town that the whole family can enjoy in the evenings after camp. Great restaurants and an awesome Irish pub.

I live in Charleston, WV (about 2ish hours away), I will be down for camp on 7/25-26 and 8/5-6. I will be staying in Lewisburg on 7/25 and 8/5. I might also get to drive down for the scrimmage. If you all need any Lewisburg infor I might be able to help. Plus I will be partaking in a few beers in Lewisburg on the evenings I'm staying if anyone would like to join.

Me and the family are in Lewisburg for the weekend of the scrimmage. It looks like a really cool little town. They have something called "First Friday", which seems to be some kind of street festival each month, which is that Friday before the scrimmage.

Yes you can bring items for autographs, however they may not allow you to bring a backpack to keep it in. I will be there the first day of camp and hopefully can answer questions from experience after that.

I'm just outside of Charlottesville, VA and will be attending the July 25 afternoon session and the July 26 morning session. We were only staying Friday night but are finding so many cool things to do in the area, we are staying Saturday night also. Rooms are getting hard to find. Our hotel couldn't extend our stay, that one is just a few miles from the facilty. Had to book a roach motel in Lewisburg for Saturday.

We're looking at visiting a cavern and possible taking a train ride on the Cass Railroad. Will be stopping in Covington to see Humpback Bridge and Falling Sprins waterfall.

Super excited about this because my dad is here visiting :)

We'll have to make sure to meet up :) We'll be looking for a place to have supper Friday night. Will take us about 2.5 hours to get there, but worth the drive :)

Here's my facebook address if anyone wants to send a friend request.

Lewisburg was voted coolest small town USA in 2011. Cass scenic railroad is close, Greenbank observatory, the bunker at the Greenbrier is interesting, and Snowshoe ski resort has a lot of outdoor activities going on in the summer.

You can't go wrong eating anywhere in Lewisburg. Food with friends is my wife's favorite.

I was originally planning on staying in Lewisburg, but I decided to just make the drive up a few times since my family is not attending.

Unfortunately I can not make the scrimmage (my daughters B-Day)

I will probably go up for the sessions on...

I will be staying at the Lewisburg Comfort Inn, Aug 1-2. I'm a BPOE officer, and there is an Elks Country Club (1758) about 1 mile from there, and that's where I will be playing golf -- rather on the cheap. I anyone would like to be my guest, I can get the guest pricing -- $20/9 holes and a cart.

I will also be touring the bunker at the Greenbrier, but no discounts there.

I'm still unsure on where to park for the Greenbrier.

From some maps it looks like the Public Access parking lot should be on the East side of the Greenbrier just off of Route 60 (Sam Snead Blvd/ West Main Street).

From the map it looks to be just across from the main gate. It looks like it doubles as Amtrak Parking.

I will send an email to verify on Friday.
