For a state park, this 4-year old campground was better than we expected. We loved the size of the sites and the separation between them. We were on the upper tier of sites (#2) where most, if not all, are pull-through sites. The sites' patios are staggered, so your next door neighbor isn't peering onto your patio when he looks out his window. The lower tier had mostly back-in sites, but were much closer to the river access points. I was a little disappointed in the access points, thinking they would be more user-friendly, but that's just me. The electric and water utilities were flawless. Satellite access in the upper tier was excellent. As noted before, cell phone service can be a challenge. The visitors' center has a Wi-Fi network that you can access while there. It's a bit of a hike to get there, or just drive as most do. Otherwise, you need to drive into Front Royal, about 8 miles away. Our camp host was a tent camper, and a very pleasant one at that. Overall, a great, relaxing, and quiet campground. We camped at Shenandoah River State Park in a Motorhome.

Still the lowest priced 50 amp water hookup big rig sites in the entire area. Very large and beautiful sites. Back in sites are more level than pull-through sites. Only minus is that the power blinked out twice in one day on site 5. Someone needs to check the power distribution boxes again. The zip line is $84 per person, so we did not try. There is water access, but very steep and muddy. Camp host in tent was excellent & friendly. We camped at Shenandoah River State Park in a Motorhome.

Wonderful park. Large sites. This area offers lots of things to do, zip line in park, has several miles of river frontage, fishing, hiking, biking and kayaking! The only thing one could complain about is the absence of Verizon service, which is our fault. AT&T and Sprint work well. We camped at Shenandoah River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We spent the weekend here. The camp hosts were super friendly and helpful as we got to the campground late. The scenery is beautiful. Close to river outfitters for rafting, canoeing, kayaking, and a trail leads right to the Shenandoah River. We will be visiting here much more as it is so close to home. We camped at Shenandoah River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We loved this park. There is a place to put your kayak in the water and very nice hiking trails in a beautiful location. Fire ring, picnic table, spacious level lots. Showers were very clean. Only drawbacks are no Wi-Fi and no sewer on site. Would definitely return! We camped at Shenandoah River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is an excellent state park campground. Sites are huge & well spaced. The visitor center is nice & there are good walking trails. Restroom & showers were very clean. Camp host responded quickly to a problem that I brought to her attention. This is a good location for visiting the National Park. It is a very peaceful place to camp. We would stay here again. We camped at Shenandoah River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A wonderful park in a great location. This park was easy to get to and very well organized. At the gate we were welcomed into the park with a packet of information waiting for us. We went in and found a super large pull through spot with good electric and water service. The camp area was very well maintained and the camp hosts were friendly and quite helpful. After you pick out your spot you stop by the visitor center to drop off the paperwork they gave you at the gate. Fantastic and scenic trails with easy access to local attractions. One of my all time favorites. I would have given it a ten if you could reserve a spot (we saw a late arriving big rig having to settle on a tight spot while a tent camper was on a giant pull through spot). The family voted it a place to return to soon! We camped at Shenandoah River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great location to Shenandoah National Park and Front Royal. Clean dump station. Lowest priced 50 amp and water campground in entire area. Super large sites. Hiking trails. Very quiet and peaceful scenery. Friendly staff and hosts. ATT wireless and data perfect signal. Will always return. We camped at Shenandoah River State Park in a Motorhome.

Best 50 amp & water hookup park in the entire Shenandoah area in terms of price. Alas, no sewer hookups. But at least the dump station is very clean. Park is only about 3 years old. Incredible views of mountains and valley. Sites are not perfectly level, but level enough for levelers. They are huge sites. Excellent, friendly camp hosts. Very remote feeling, yet minutes from Front Royal shopping and national park. We camped at Shenandoah River State Park in a Motorhome.

We have camped here many times and enjoy this campground. There is lots of hiking, kayaking, and biking to do here. The view from the upper campground area is breathtaking. The bathrooms and showers are always clean. The hosts have always been friendly. My only complaint is that they have stopped mowing the grass between sites, and this has increased the bugs, and also the campground doesn't look as we'll manicured as it used to. Not sure if this is a budget cut issue or what, but it was nicer when they mowed the whole thing. We still love it and will return many more times I'm sure. We camped at Shenandoah River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Our site (29) was a "Y" with site 30. We camped with friends who were in a motorhome-- they pulled in forward so we could camp "awning to awning." We were lucky to get these sites together since reservations are made first come first serve. Sites were level, partly shaded and very roomy. We were easy walking distance to the Shenandoah River where we tubed on our own. No need to use an outfitter if you bring your own tubes, kayaks, etc. Some issues with electric when we first arrived, but it was very hot and the loop was full. The bathhouse was close, and very clean with individual showers-- good water pressure and plenty of hot water. Overall, this is a beautiful park. We are looking forward to camping here again. We camped at Shenandoah River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We are regular users of this park and normally love the place. This weekend we were infested with ticks that were carried in by our dogs. For some reason the park has decided to let the tall grass grow in the RV park and is cutting the bare minimum around the sites. On our normal walks around the loops our dogs would pick up ticks just walking in the grass. They don't seem to be small deer ticks but no tick is a good tick. If you have young children, I would not let them run around or play off the gravel sites because of this problem. We camped at Shenandoah River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful park and location. Sites are mostly level, but not perfectly level. Millions of mosquitos. 50 amp power and water hookups are nice. Very large sites. Choose your own site upon arrival. Many hiking trails. We camped at Shenandoah River State Park in a Motorhome.

Lowest priced 50 amp & water hookup campground in entire Shenandoah & Luray area. Dump station available. Strong AT&T & Virgin Mobile signals. Road to campground is not steep. Yes, it is downhill, but very gradual, you will not drag. Open year round, even the water is on year round. Laundry room on site. Many hiking trails start on site. Online reservation excellent. We camped at Shenandoah River State Park in a Motorhome.

This was our first visit to Shenandoah River State Park and we very much enjoyed our time here. We stayed in site 8 in the E/W campground, a gravel back-in with a tent pad (smaller gravel). We had a neighbor on only one side, which was nice. All sites in this campground have hookups for water and electric (50/30/15). There are no sewer connections except for the campground hosts' site, but there is a dump station available at the top of the hill. Some sites along the outer perimeter have a nice view of the hills: sites 9, 10 and 12 especially. Sites around #25 back to trees. There are several huge pull-through sites that would accommodate about any size rig. Funnily enough, one of them was occupied by a little pop-up at the time we were here. Camping cabins are available in a variety of sizes: from a little camp cabins with bunk beds and a table and chairs, up to a six bedroom lodge with all the luxuries of home. The bath house was very neat and clean. There are 4 private showers with lockable doors in the rear of the building. The water was always hot enough for showering. There are also a washer, a dryer and a dish washing sink at the bath house. Reservations made on line are not site-specific, so you just choose whichever site you want from those available when you arrive. There is a $5 reservation fee tacked on when booking via ReserveAmerica. The park attendants were not finicky about check-in time and allowed us in several hours early. Those arriving after normal business hours will have their reservation information left in an envelope with their name on it at the attendant station. Our TracFone (using the AT&T network) had 4 bars at our campsite and we were able to use our VirginMobile MiFi for Internet access without problem. This park has lots of hiking trails, equestrian accommodations and river access for inner-tubing and kayaking. (We didn't see a launch ramp for boats, but weren't really looking for one.) A ranger at the Visitor's Center told us that they were organizing a float trip on inner-tubes for the next day: only $5 per person. We were sorry we had to miss that. At other times of the year there are also ranger-led canoe and kayak trips. There is quite a lot to do outside the park as well. Skyline Drive and Shenandoah National Park are not a far drive away. (We saw a bear!) Skyline Caverns is just down the road a bit and there were a couple of outdoor-type businesses that take groups out on canoe trips and such. Several other posters noted that the road into the campground is a steep and winding, but it really isn't all THAT bad. We did hear a couple of train whistles, but they were off in the distance and not loud and rumbling. There was no traffic noise to speak of. All-in-all, this is a wonderful State Park with a little something for just about every type of camper. We camped at Shenandoah River State Park in a Travel Trailer.
