Blackberry Cobbler a la mode - Shenandoah National Park For many Shenandoah National Park visitors, it’s all about the blackberries. Starting mid-summer, thickets of Shenandoah blackberries ripen in the open areas along the roads, trails and streams of the national park.

Blackberry Delight is an annual event that celebrates the sweet-tart fruit in all its glory. Skyland chefs create special blackberry-infused dishes combined with a full day of live music, dancing, local crafts, pony rides, and kid’s activities to make it a fun day for the entire family!

Stay at Skyland (mile 41.7 & 42.5) for convenient, in-park lodging closest to the activities! Or, there's also Big Meadows Lodge (mile 51) not too far down Skyline Drive. But, book now, because rooms fill fast!
