Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"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."

The site is great for those who want to have a family environment. I personally just use primitive sites on the river but again for a family environment you can't beat the campsite. Make sure that you check with the VGIF regulations for fishing in the Jackson because this area I'm pretty sure is single point artificial hook only but make sure to check with the regulations.
