Shenandoah River State Park

We love camping with our kids. It’s one of our favorite family activities. But there is also something really special about mom-and-dad-only camping trips. We don’t do it often, but every once in a while we will do some romamping. I totally made that up. But it’s basically when we celebrate our anniversary with a romantic camping getaway. 

This particular trip was back in 2019 when we celebrated our one-year anniversary at Shenandoah River State Park. 

This park is gorgeous. With mountain and river views, as well as picturesque dining options in a quaint nearby town, Shenandoah River makes for an excellent romantic getaway. 

However, the adventure-seeking family will have much to explore here as well, and we look forward to returning with our kids someday! 

*I did not take many notes or photos during this visit, and this park is at the top of the list of parks to revisit! Much to explore here.
