We visited the Spacious Skies Shenandoah Views Campground when it was the Luray KOA. Nestled between Shenandoah National Park and George Washington National Forest, it has fabulous views all around the campground, not to mention all the recreational opportunities.
Watch the short video review below or continue reading for more details.
We love KOAs because they offer so many different types of sites to suit any budget or preference, and this one was no exception. In fact, the Luray KOA had some of the most unique site offerings that we’ve seen.
- Deluxe Patio Sites – These are full hook-up pull-through sites with a dining table, extra seating area with lounge chairs, umbrella, and fire ring. We stayed in these sites as you can see from the image above. We loved how the fire pit area had its own little patio too.
- Standard Pull-Thru Sites – There were standard full hook-up pull-thru sites that come with a smaller concrete patio, picnic table, and fire ring.
- Back-In Pergola Sites – These sites were so cool, we want to stay in one next time. They have a picnic table under the pergola, which is situated at the rear of your RV. Then just below the pergola, there is an extra seating area with lounge chairs, a fire ring, and mountain views.
- Other Back-In Sites – As usual, there are a variety of back-in sites based on RV length to accommodate small campers and big rigs. The extra long back-in sites were probably the longest I’ve seen! Another bonus of the back-ins is that they are all situated around the edges of the campground so you have greenery and views behind you — not other RVs.
- No RV? No problem! They have tent sites, cabins, and yurts to enjoy.
This campground has all the amenities you’d expect, but we thought they were nicer than most. For example, they had two swimming pools, a playground with a large open field for the kids to run around in, and the largest dog park we’ve ever seen.
Another great amenity was a camp kitchen with sinks and a long counter behind the bathhouse. This is a terrific place for those staying in the tent sites to do their dishes.
Luray Caverns boasts the largest caverns in the Eastern United States. They have well-lighted, paved walkways that lead visitors through cathedral-sized rooms with ceilings 10 stories high, towering stone formations, and natural wonders at every turn. With so many fabulous formations, I can’t name them all, but here’s one of my favorites: Dominating Giant’s Hall at 47 feet in height, this column is the tallest and one of the most spectacular formations in the caverns. The Double Column is a classic example of the two basic cave formations the stalactite and stalagmite coming together as one massive wonder of nature.
Hawksbill Greenway consists of two miles of trails along a quiet creek. It’s a great place just off downtown Luray to ride your bike or go for a stroll. Downtown Luray has several shops, restaurants, and a great little ice cream place. If you’re looking for an inexpensive afternoon, do some window shopping, ride your bikes on the Greenway, and treat yourself to an ice cream cone.
Shenandoah National Park spans nearly 200,000 acres of protected land and provides a diverse array of activities and amenities for tourists. The park’s Thorton Gap Entrance Station is located a short 9.5 miles from the Shenandoah Views Campground making it a “must-see” destination. Whether you want to enjoy the beautiful views along the scenic Skyline Drive, explore the park’s history at the Big Meadows Visitor Center, or take a hike on one of 514 miles of trails (with plenty of options for all fitness levels), there is something for everyone.
