Shenandoah River State Park's trail system consists of multi-use trails open to hikers, cyclists and equestrians. The trail system is generally wide and not very technical compared to the surrounding George Washington National Forest and Shenandoah National Park.
Camping and Lodging
The park has an RV campground, primitive campground, and cabins (really nice). This is a fantastic family camping destination!
There is a zip line in the park which is pretty fun. There are various canoe outfitters that will rent canoes, kayaks, or tubes. Fishing here is great.
