Shenandoah National Park is always open, however, portions of Skyline Drive, the only public road through the Park, are periodically closed during inclement weather. Visitors may still enter the Park on foot to hike even when Skyline Drive is closed. Subscribe to Shenandoah's alert system for the most timely updates. Alternatively, call the Park's recorded information line: (540) 999-3500 (option 1, then option 1) for the most current Skyline Drive status.
*Fuel at Big Meadows Wayside is available year-round; however, the gas pumps can be unreliable, so you may want to enter the Park with a full tank.
Concessionaire hours vary. For current hours visit our concessionaire's website.
Campsite reservations begin May 5th and can be made up to six months prior to the date of your arrival.
