Day 23-25: Shenandoah National Park, Virginia

A travel blog entry by blakekelsey


We have entered what I like to call "the shin". This national park is gigantic. The land was originally owned by over 49 private land owners, now spread with hiking trails, parks and Skyline Drive with about 50 beautiful overlooks into the Appalachian Mountains.

Chris suggested we could stay another day while I rest but I was keen to keep to schedule and was feeling a little better after throwing up. So we soldiered on. Zach got to watch a lot of iPad that day while I slept in the back assisting Chris to navigate when I could. It was a long drive on the interstate system and we heading to Front Royal a …

Hard to find a site to fit a 32 foot Motorhome! The one thing this campground has are showers which we dont use. We settle in and read for the afternoon then walk around the …

Exploring Shenandoah National Park

A travel blog entry by h.o.t.


We woke up to a beautiful morning and rolled out of bed at 7am as the day began to warm up. A beautiful breakfast of sausages and pancakes was enjoyed by all before Tim dealt with a stove malfunction that took an hour to resolve. However, it was all solved and we set off from camp by 10 for a relaxing day touring the park. We stopped at the Ranger …

Day 16 - The Long and Winding Road

A travel blog entry by monahan


We slept in a few minutes late this morning, as we were out so late on Sunday night. We managed to get up in time for breakfast at the hotel, and then checked out at 10:30 AM or so. As there was no news of any terrorism in the city overnight, we got back on the subway and visited the Pentagon Memorial. On the way we even found a "Welcome to …

    This site is not as nice as Mathews Arm just up the road. Sites not as private and smaller and not as nice. Would recommend staying at Mathews Arm if you are deciding!

    A well kept campground with full time mowing crews AKA Rabbits. Also great walk in camp sites to a real camping experience.

    This park was well-used and tired. We had to try two sites to get something level enough so we could even camp. Quiet and peaceful and several short hikes nearby, by car. I'd stay there again, just because the drive through the park is so beautiful.
