The National Park Service (NPS) is working servicewide with federal, state, and local public health authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and using a phased approach to increase access on a park-by-park basis. Based on guidance from the White House, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state and local public health authorities Shenandoah will continue to monitor and evaluate our ability to increase access beyond Phase One.

We will announce additional openings as soon as we know about them. We cannot, at this time, predict when campgrounds, lodges, or other facilities will open.

The Best View!

What a great view from our front porch.  This morning we came into work and this was the picture.  The moon is actually a crescent moon, but unfortunately my phone camera did not capture the moment as clear as the eye can see.
