Due to a fire at the entrance gate, Thornton Gap - one of the park's busiest entrance stations - will be down to one lane. Please plan accordingly.
You may also pre-purchase your park pass online at recreation.gov, which will make the overall entrance station experience go quicker.
With the exception of select holiday and special events, reservations are not taken and service is provided on a first come, first served basis. For groups of 15 or more, please contact our Group Sales department at 540-217-6131, Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. We do not make group reservations, but we will alert the property that your group will be coming on a specific date. It is still first come first served.

Outdoor terrace seating at Big Meadows provides fresh mountain air and breathtaking valley views (weather permitting). And because we love pets, you can bring your four-legged pooch with you. Plus we have a special Yappy Hour Menu just for them. It's a "pawsitively" great way to spend time in Shenandoah!
Our terrace seating is an extension of the Spottswood Dining Room and operates with the same hours and menus.
