Come enjoy the scenic Shenandoah Valley—from hiking, fishing, and river activities to local festivals and events! Everywhere you turn, there are loads of exciting outdoor activities for the whole family and amazing area attractions within driving minutes of the campground.
Garden Maze – This stroller-friendly and handicap-accessible one-acre hedge maze—comprised of more than 1,500 individual evergreens—is the largest in the mid-Atlantic region. Fountains and a cooling mist will fend off the heat while umbrellas are provided during light rains to allow maze runners to work their way through the eight foot-high, half-mile path in most weather. Forty divergence points complicate the search for hidden goals that reveal to the victorious the secret of the maze. Located next to Luray Caverns (you can park in the same lot!), the maze is just sixteen minutes from the campground and fifteen minutes from I-81 at New Market, Virginia. Visit the maze's website for information on hours, directions, and cost of admission (group rates are available).
Luray Zoo – A rescue zoo that takes on animals in need of a good home, Luray Zoo funds itself entirely through admissions, gift shop sales, donations, and outreach program fees. With a petting zoo to enjoy and one of the largest venomous snake collections on the east coast to experience, guests have every reason to visit more than once! Reserve a personal Discovery Tour to receive a guided tour with one of the zoo's owners, plus a chance to interact with some of the zoo animals. Located just eighteen minutes from the campground and only a few minutes from Luray Caverns, Luray Zoo is a fun learning experience. Visit the zoo's website for information on hours, directions, and cost of admission (special educational shows during summer weekends are included in the admission price).
Skyline Caverns – Enjoy hours of fun all in one place! Home to anthodites that are a rare formation the world over, Skyline Caverns can be found on the outskirts of Front Royal. Right next door is the Enchanted Dragon Mirror Maze, where dragons and fairies wait to greet visitors. Not far away is the Skyline Arrow, a miniature train that offers a ten-minute ride to adults and children alike. There's even a half-mile nature trail to introduce visitors to the beauty surrounding the caverns. Each of these attractions is priced separately (the nature trail is 100% free), but group rates and other special discounts are available, as well as an online-exclusive coupon; the website even has a special cavern scavenger hunt checklist for children to complete and earn a small reward. Located just seventeen minutes from the campground, the caverns and mirror maze are open year-round while the miniature train is open from spring to autumn.
Luray Caverns – A world-renowned U.S. natural landmark, Luray Caverns is the largest in the eastern United States. Home of the stalacpipe organ that covers three and a half acres—the only one of its kind in the world—the caverns also boast a handful of other unique features. Next door is the Car & Carriage Museum, a garden maze, and a fantastical universe in the miniature world of Toy Town; nearby is the "singing tower" recognized as one of the nation's major carillons, the rope adventure park, and other attractions. Located about sixteen minutes from the campground, the caverns are open year-round. For information on the other attractions and admission prices, please visit the website.
