Luray Caverns

Discovered by men that set out in the late 1800’s to find a cave in the hopes of developing a tourist attraction, people even back then came by the hundreds to see what was called the “Discovery of the Century.” Today, half a million people per year take hour-long tours of the caverns where stalactites and stalagmites abound. The dripping water in the cavern continues to form these natural wonders at a rate of one cubic inch every 120 years.

Distance from Camp-Resort: 5.3 miles

Shenandoah National Park

Shenandoah National Park has something for everyone. The most popular hike leads to the area’s 14 waterfalls. Other hikes lead to places of historical interest within the Park. The most popular of these are old, pioneer homes, churches and cemeteries. Many of these homes are in ruins, but enough remain intact that hikers are treated to a bit of early Americana, and a taste of days gone by when they come across these relics of the past. You can even retrace the path that Confederate General Stonewall Jackson and his troops used to cross the mountain from west to east, on his way to Fredericksburg. Some of the trails are easy enough to hike through with most family members. They’ll be amazed at the panoramic views, the deep canyons, the amazing sights, and general beauty of the area.

The Center also offers the Airbus IMAX® Theater and the Donald D. Engen Observation Tower, which gives you a 360-degree bird’s-eye view of Washington Dulles International Airport and the surrounding area!

Skyline Drive

Through the Shenandoah National Park runs the 105-mile-long Skyline Drive. It is a magnificent, scenic two-lane highway that winds its way through a true camper’s paradise. Enjoy the breathtaking views and amazing wildlife. Skyline Drive roughly parallels about 101 miles of the Appalachian Trail, the 2,100-mile-long footpath that stretches from Maine to Georgia. Hikers say that the portion running through Shenandoah is one of the most beautiful sections of the Appalachian Trail.
