Shenandoah River State Park Professional Review and Guide
"Just down the mountain from the northern entrance to Skyline Drive is the 1,604-acre Raymond R. “Andy” Guest Jr. Shenandoah River State Park. This park, named for the late Virginia local delegate, lies in the shadow of nearby Massanutten Mountain. Planners have learned a thing or two since the first six Virginia parks were created in 1936, and they put this knowledge to use before opening Shenandoah River in 1999.
The park’s picnic areas, trails, overlooks, boat launch, and campground are all designed to protect the environment. Even the campsite lantern poles have an au naturel look to them. Access to the riverfront is limited. Garbage must be removed by the park visitor. All facilities, including trails, are universally accessible."
