Checking in to Front Royal RV Campground puts you just a bone's throw away from epic outdoor adventures at Shenandoah National Park, only a 10-minute drive from the campground.
RVs can drive onto a gravel or grassy site and enjoy hook-ups to electricity (30/50 amp) with sewer and water. You might need to pull out the level blocks on a few sites, and internal roads can be challenging for the larger motorhomes. Sites are cozy with grass either side and a choice of pull-through and back-in access. Each site has wi-fi plus a picnic table and fire ring for a daily rate of $38 to $49. Backpackers can set up a tent in the woods for $30 to $34. Peak times are summer and holidays.
This is a rustic, country setting with well-established trees for shade and no traffic noise as you drive along a dirt road to enter the camp. There are options to reserve spaces for extended families or clubs needing a base camp, as well as a selection of comfy log cabins with bunk beds and stylish amenities. An inviting swimming pool keeps campers cool under the summer sun, while a game of horseshoes and a round of mini-golf appeases the grown-ups as the kids play in the playground.
The idyllic location allows energetic folks to indulge their love affair with the great outdoors, and a 3-mile walk to the inspired offerings at Shenandoah National Park includes the famous Rag Mountain Trail, where dogs can stretch their paws on a 6-foot leash.
Front Royal RV Campground is pooch-friendly and insists that tail-waggers stay on a leash and that canine carers supply litter bags and pick up their waste. They also offer an area for daily doggy exercise.
A 3.5-mile hike or drive takes you to the enchanting town of Front Royal, home to the original Virginia Beer Museum showcasing various ales from the 1600s to the present day. Take your canine chum to Eastham Park for off-leash fun, and if the kids need to burn off some steam, introduce them to Fantasyland Park, a paradise playground for children. This is a popular campground so make sure you book ahead!
