See cascading waterfalls and explore the Blue Ridge Mountains at Shenandoah National Park.

Shenandoah National Park extends along the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia. The Skyline Drive runs its length, and a vast network of trails includes a section of the long-distance Appalachian Trail. This park is mostly forested but also features wetlands, waterfalls, and rocky peaks like Hawksbill and Old Rag mountains. Shenandoah is home to over 50 types of mammals, including deer, squirrels, skunks, bobcats, foxes, weasels, bats, beavers, shrews, and the elusive black bear. Bird enthusiasts should keep their eyes peeled for various hawks, eagles, vultures, ducks, hummingbirds, sandpipers, finches, doves, and other native bird species.

Shenandoah is a land bursting with spectacular vistas, fields of wildflowers, and quiet wooded hollows. It is just 75 miles away from Washington, D.C. With over 200,000 acres of protected lands, there is much to explore. This park is always open, but Skyline Drive may be closed during inclement weather. Most of the campgrounds are open from May to October and none of the sites have electricity hookups available. Shenandoah's Blue Ridge Mountains are covered by hardwood forests that are home to thousands of animals. Enjoy your visit to this mountainous paradise with your friends and family.
