We have stayed at Shendoah Valley several times now while passing through Virginia on our way south. Each time we've been impressed with the cleanliness of the park and the care the staff puts into it. Our pull-thru site was more than long enough for our 34' coach and toad, and the utilities were well placed for an easy hook up. There are very few trees, so satellite reception was clear. Our Verizon signal was strong with good data speeds, but our T-Mobile signal was quite a bit weaker and slower. The park WiFi was fairly good, and didn't seem to bog down much as the park filled up. There is some road noise from nearby I-81, but we found tolerable for sleeping. There is a small snack bar in the store with a very limited menu, but the BBQ pulled pork sandwiches were tasty, as were the curly fries. We will definitely be stopping here our next time through. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

Our second visit. It was previously a Passport America park but they have dropped their P/A membership which, in my estimation, creates an over-priced park. There is a nice pool, a playground, and one can get meals, but that is available in many other parks for less money. The only thing going for it is its proximity to many of the tourist attractions. On our last visit, we didn't notice much highway noise but many of the trees that created a noise buffer zone between the park and the highway have been removed and it is really noisy with the truck traffic. Once some of the trees in the park have grown up it may be better but we are looking for another park as a stopping off point on our way north. We might stop again but that is not a certainty. Our site was level and offered full hookup and cable. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is near Luray Caverns and Shenandoah National Park, also some Civil War sites. The entire area is full of sites of historical significance. Shopping is a few miles away as are several restaurants.

Was guided to our spot by the host who was kind and helpful. The lay out of the utilities caused us to have to stretch our 20ft sewer hose to the limit. We were in site 12 which placed us very close to I-81. The noise from the road made sleeping very difficult. The park showed a movie for campers which ended at their quiet time of 10 but after 8 hours on the road, I did not want to hear it when it came time to sleep. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Travel Trailer.

One of the most well-kept campgrounds we have ever been to. Easy off/on Rt. 81. Pull through, back-in, tent sites & cabins. Grassy, gravel surface. Friendly & efficient reservation & check in. Escort to site. Full hook-up services well located & in excellent working order. Strong cable & wi-fi signals. Also strong Verizon signal. Immaculate bathhouse & strong shower. We didn't use the small pool, but it looked clean & inviting. Well stocked camp store & a snack bar. We had their breakfast sandwiches, made to order & they were delicious. It didn't bother us at all, but there is road noise from 81 which might bother those who are sound sensitive. Some comments mention non-level sites. We were in P-1 which was completely level & spacious. We stopped here to recover for 2 nights after dry camping in Shenandoah National Park. We didn't check out any of the many attractions the Shenandoah Valley has to offer, but due to our fine experience at this camp ground, we will definitely go back for a longer visit. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Clean newer campground on the side of I-81, have stayed before because of the friendly service, clean restrooms, and Passport discount. The generally level sites are tiered down the hill towards the interstate. Cable TV connection is good because broadcast reception unavailable. Expensive overnight stay when the pool isn't open without a Passport discount which they no longer honor. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

This was our 1st time here and we liked it enough to make a permanent change to our route in the future. It's a little south of where we usually stay but well worth the difference.

As General MacArthur said "I shall return." Lots have sunny/open exposures. Site surface is gravel and features a picnic table. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

The park is listed as in Mt Jackson but if you are using a gps to get there you must use QUICKSBURG, VIRGINIA 22847. Better yet, just use the simple directions on their website.

We stayed here one night to see the Shenandoah Caverns. It was a quick 1/2 mile walk, since we weren't towing a car. The people were very friendly and service was wonderful. Our gravel site was sunny/open, very close spacing, and included a fire ring and picnic table. Kids enjoyed the playground. There was an unpleasant smell in the air which made it so we probably won't stay again, but the road noise didn't bother us as some others have stated. It was good for a quick stay.

Shenandoah is an overnight stop for us on our way to Florida in January. The park was lightly occupied and the WiFi and cable services worked very well. The office staff was friendly and helpful. Our site was relatively level, well within range for our auto-leveling system. Verizon cell service is strong, and the open sites are great for satellite service. The park is an easy on and off for I-81, but the close proximity does lead to noticeable traffic noise. We will definitely be returning. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is extremely easy to find....just off I-81. It is only a few years old, as evidenced by the small trees. All facilities were very well kept and the managers were extremely helpful. Due to the time of the year, we had the pick of the camp. Roads and sites were crushed gravel and reasonably flat. Sewage, electrical, water, WiFi and cable all worked perfectly. We definitely plan to return at a future date. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Would have given a higher rating but the road noise was terrible. And I thought the price was high given it's just an overnight stop. Even with the noise I would stay here again while passing though. Excellent WiFi and OK cable. The sites were a little on the down hill side. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

There is not a level site in the entire campground. I was assigned to site P6 with a 37 foot Class A. Tried to level and with full extension of levelers it was impossible. After much pleading with office staff I was assigned a back-in site with 30 amp service (after paying for a pull-through with 50 amps). The cable TV reception was very fuzzy the first night and no cable the following two nights. The traffic noise from the highway made sleeping impossible. Had to be in the area for a wedding or I would have pulled out the first night. Worst campground I have ever been to in 40 years of camping. Never again!

We reserved campsite on Oct 7th, 2015 for the night of Oct 24th for one night and were told there were plenty of campsites available. Received an emailed confirmation that day with campsite #B22 shown on the reservation confirmation. When we arrived and had checked in, they put us in B16, stating they had the right to change sites at will (which is stated no where on their web site or reservation confirmation). We were escorted to our site, but then were stopped short and were told to pull into B5 instead (another on-the-fly change). We backed in, begin to hook up, and more problems began to arise. The campsite's utility hook ups were at the road, and the hook ups on our camper were at the back. We stretched our electrical cord all the way out (25') and were able to reach the utility pole, barely, leaving our truck in the street. Water was not a problem. Sewer, though was another challenge. Our bathroom is on the the back of the camper and the campsite sewer portal was at the front. With all 4 of our pieces and all the connectors we had, we were able to hook-up the black water sewer, but unable to connect the grey water because we ran out of sewer hose and connectors, which has never happened to us in our entire camping career. Same issue with cable hook-up -- cable connection on campsite was at the road, but cable connection on camper was on the back and not enough cable to reach (needed about 50 ft). At one point, just after we pulled into our campsite, we were asked to move our truck so another camper could get by. We had not even been given 10 minutes to get our truck disconnected from the camper!

This was a very poorly designed campsite, as most campers' utilities are either midway or in the rear of the camper. Several more campsites in the campground were designed like this as well. Very noisy campground - adjacent to busy highway. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here for 3 nights over Labor Day weekend and a plus for them was they did not "hike" the price as so many campsites do during holiday weekends. A nice campsite, grass and gravel and our site level and spacious. Nice swimming pool. It looks as though areas have undergone refurbishment with new looking cabins. Wifi very good considering they were almost full. Cable TV including golf channel. Easy access from I-81 and some road noise but not enough to be annoying.
