Shenandoah National Park is located in Luray, Virginia and is the perfect spot to start your summer adventures on the east coast. Whether you are planning a cross country road trip, need a weekend getaway, or just want to explore a new National Park, Shenandoah is a must see place this summer. With tons of wildlife including black bears, bobcats, barred owls, and red-winged hawks, you’ll want to bring some binoculars to take it all in, and probably stay in a Roofnest to keep away from the Ringneck Snakes.
What to do at Shenandoah
- Overall Run Falls – This waterfall is one you have to see when visiting the park, standing 93′ tall it is the largest in Shenandoah. You will climb 1850 feet on your 6.4-mile roundtrip, but there are rock ledges to relax on at the falls to take in the views of the Shenandoah Valley and Massanutten mountain.
- Skyline Drive – If hiking isn’t your forte, take a cruise down the 105-mile Skyline Drive along the top of The Blue Ridge Mountains. You’ll wander through 200,000 acres of Shenandoah National Park and see some of the most fantastic views the park has to offer, all while sitting back in the comfort of your vehicle.
- Camp at Big Meadows Campground – There are 5 different campgrounds to choose from in the Shenandoah National Park but Big Meadows is our favorite. Located at mile 51.2 of Skyline Drive, this campsite offers everything you want when on an adventure. You can visit 3 waterfalls all within walking distance, take in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley from your Roofnest, and if you’re lucky you’ll also see some of the amazing wildlife this park has to offer.
