One of my favorite parts of Virginia. This place is great because they have a bus to bring you back up river after a day of kayaking. Clean facilities and a nice little store. Not recommended if you are looking for solitude.
I really liked this campground. Everything was clean and very well maintained, and the sites were actually pretty large. But the campground itself was smaller than it looks on the map.
Bathrooms were clean and never had an issue with having to wait for one.
This was a second trip to this campground, solely because I was hosting another group hiking/camping/tubing trip. The campground is solely for tents. Each site allows up to 10 people at a cheap rate of ~$8/person per night. Even with a full campground, bathrooms and showers were always available. The campground also doubles as a water tubing outfitter on the Shenandoah River. It's also in the heart the valley between prime east coast hiking areas (Shenandoah National Park and George Washington National Forest). From the campsite, there is a 1/4 mile hike down to the river for a late night dip, which we all did under the full moon. Each site comes with a grill, table and fire pit.
