Shenandoah National Park Camping

Fire Ban

Due to exceptionally dry conditions, Shenandoah National Park has implemented a complete fire ban. Building, attending, maintaining, or using an open fire anywhere within the boundaries of the Park is prohibited.

Shenandoah's four main campgrounds are operated by the National Park Service and are open spring through fall and feature spacious tent, trailer and RV sites.
