Shenandoah Valley Campground

The Shenandoah Valley Campground is one of our absolute favorite places in all of Virginia. It is a great, small, family owned campground. We went last year for their Halloween festivities and plan to return this fall. The best thing about SVC in the summer, however, is that it is up in the mountains, so it is mucho cooler that down here on the Peninsula. Plus, the river is a' flowin! We spent a good bit of time on the river this trip. It was nice and cool and we only saw one or two snakes, who very much wanted nothing to do with us.

I guess we are official RVers now. We bought our first piece of camper yard art. LOL.

One of the best parts of Shenandoah, is that there is plenty of time to relax!

Friday nights are Karaoke Night at Shenandoah and there is a DJ on Saturday nights. These are Summer's favorite part of the campground. Little miss loves some karaoke and line dancing!

This is Al. He made our camper sign and then wouldn't let us pay for it. Al spent 30 something years in the 101st Airborne. (I think) When he heard that Den and Bryan were both in the Air Force, he absolutely refused to take their money. Al is quite the Jack of All Trades at Shenandoah. During the Karaoke and DJ nights, he makes some of the best funnel cakes I have ever eaten AND homemade pork rinds, which the boys can't seem to get enough of. Then on Sunday morning, Al puts on his pancake making apron and serves up all you can eat pancakes.

There is lots more fun to be had at Shenandoah. There is a small miniature golf course, a pool, which, come to think of it, we have never gotten around to using, and of course, a fishing pond that they stock with rainbow trout twice a year. We didn't catch any this time, but when we were there at Halloween, we caught our limit.

One of the kids' favorite things about the campground are the tame free-range bunnies that live there. You can buy a generous bag of food for 50 cents at the camp store and some of them will come right up to you. This one in particular was none too interested in being friends with me, so I just had to play bunny stalker and take his picture from afar.

We had an amazing time here as always. See you in October!
