Camping - It's Baaaaaccccckkkkk!

All but two of our full service campgrounds closed December 1 for the season, but they all reopen Friday, February 28th!

These campers at Westmoreland State Park are ready to go!

Normally, we open March 1, but since that date is a Saturday we figured opening Friday made more sense. 

Get the camper out and ready for 2014!

We have had some campers all winter at our primitive campgrounds and at Shenandoah River and Hungry Mother state parks, the two full service campgrounds open year round. This December Douthat State Park's Whispering Pines Campground will also start staying open year round.

4 p.m. to midnight only through April 30

Don't forget about the Statewide Burning Restriction. Open fires are prohibited until after 4 p.m. and until midnight. This includes our campsite grills. Propane and gas grills are ok as well as charcoal in grills raised off the ground (like we have in our picnic areas). The burning restriction lasts from February 15 through April 30 each year.
