Outstanding State Park!

With large, private sites this campground is perfect for camping!  We never heard from the neighbors and I don't believe our constant activity created a problem for them either.  The sites were made of crushed rock, very flat, and the RV sites included water, electricity, a picnic table, poles for hanging whatever you need hung, and an awesome fire ring!  

The bathrooms are up to date with free showers.  A sink for washing dishes is part of the bathroom complex, along with a laundry room.  The campground host sells campfire wood which proved to be well seasoned and provided us an excellent fire experience.

In the Shenandoah State Park there are hiking trails, biking trails, horse trails, and places to put in and take out of the Shenandoah River.  The river is shallow, but provides enough water for canoeing, kayaking, and tubing.  Wading is allowed but there is no formal swim area.  Our 3 & 6 year old grandchildren absolutely love the park and can't wait to return soon, even after we took them on a steep but interesting 3 mile hike (which included stops at a great viewing platform and an awesome Visitor's Center).

  • Plenty of wildlife including deer, rabbits, snakes, and a multitude of lizards.  Not too buggy at all!
  • The Shenandoah River from a great view point in the park.
  • There are a couple of awesome fields that are very busy in the early morning and at dusk.
  • There were many hiking trails to choose from and to customize a trip for your particular crew.
  • The River Trail was excellent and provided many view points along the way.  We recommend bringing your bikes to cover more area of this awesome park!
  • Rule #12: All campers are required to catch and cook their own food.
  • A happy hiker!
  • Excellent camping sites... large, flat, and very private.
  • View of a RV site from the top of the hill.
