With everything we have to offer here, you’ll never hear the words “I’m bored” during your vacation. In addition to all of our amazing on-site attractions, there’s even more fun to be had right around the corner! Keep reading to learn all about one of our favorite nearby attractions that is a must see when visiting the area.

Shenandoah National Park is one of our all time favorite attractions near Jellystone Park™ Luray. The Thornton Gap entrance to the park is only 9 minutes away, making it a must-visit during your vacation! With over 200,000 acres of protected lands, there are endless things to do and see here!

There are over 500 miles of hiking trails at Shenandoah Nation Park. Grab your hiking boots and head out for a day of beautiful mountain views and exciting wildlife. We recommend packing a map, plenty of water, snacks, and emergency gear (first aid kit, flashlight, & a whistle – we love being prepared for any situation!). There are all kinds of beautiful hikes that are sure to keep your family entertained for hours!

What better place to hike than to a waterfall? The park offers multiple different hikes to their various waterfalls, making waterfalls accessible to all hiking abilities. Hikes range from 2.6 miles round trip to South Rive Falls, to 5.1 miles roundtrip to Overall Run Falls. Other popular hikes lead to places of historical interest within the park. The most popular of these are run-down pioneer homes, churches and cemeteries, treating you to a bit of early Americana history during your hike!

One of or favorite ways to experience this national park is horseback riding! Sign up for a 1 hour guided ride with the Skyland Stables and enjoy a ride thought the Limberlost area & an old apple orchard. Looking for a longer ride? Graves Mountain Farm offers 1 hour, half-day, and full-day rides! If you kids are too young for horseback riding, check out Fort Valley Ranch for a similar experience! They offer horse drawn wagon rides along the area’s back roads – perfect for families with young kids.

If hiking or horseback riding aren’t your cup of tea, don’t fret! There are many other ways to enjoy the park. Fishing is one of the most popular activities at this park. Shenandoah National Park has over 90 mountain streams, making this a fisherman’s paradise! Brook trout, brown trout, & rainbow trout are the most common fish species in Shenandoah’s streams, though over 40 fish species can be found here! These lakes are a fantastic hot spot for fishing, so make sure to grab your pole and cast away. Please note, fishing licenses are required for ages 16+, license can be purchased online here

Rock climbing, guided bike tours, camping, and stargazing are just a few other activities that guest like to enjoy here. Shenandoah National Park also features 2 visitor centers, a few exhibits, multiple dining options, and 7 beautiful picnic locations. We hope you make sure to squeeze in some time to enjoy the local nature during your vacation!

If your vacation is still in the works make sure to begin planning your family vacation ASAP – you don’t want to miss out on this summer’s best memories! Whether you choose to experience our favorite nearby attraction or remain at the park with us, we know your vacation will be one to remember. So pack your sunscreen, bug spray, and, of course, your hiking boots and get ready for the best vacation ever!
