We pulled into Harrisonburg / Shenandoah Valley KOA at 2:00 pm on Wednesday. At 4:00 pm, all hell broke loose. Severe storm warnings until 9:00 pm. Lightning and thunder rolled through for five hours straight. Then came the winds as we sat in our rig watching the trees bending over in the strong winds. All I kept hearing out of hubby’s mouth was: “Holy Shit”. Storms do not phase BooBoo, but Bella and Benji are scared of the storms and they shake from the first clap of thunder until the last.
The park workers are spending the day cleaning up the debris from the damaging winds.
It’s a crap shoot when you reserve a site “online” at an RV park that you’ve never been to before. You never know what you are going to get until you arrive and someone leads you to your site. We’ve been lucky in the fact that we’ve always seemed to make it work. Our site is Full Hook-ups, gravel, level and just long enough for us to fit even though we had to park the Big Boy Truck along side of our rig with rocks near making it difficult to get in and out of the Big Boy Truck with the pups.
Don’t know where you’re going inside the park? No problem.
Everywhere there’s signs.
I took a walk and found this little gem. This babling stream is behind tent site. I thought, how tranquil it would be to have a tent on this site and be able to listen to the waterfalls. Who needs a sound machine?
Their swimming pool is larger than most KOA campgrounds.
All KOA campgrounds have cute little cabins. I never saw the inside of one so I can’t comment on how nice they are but I do like that swing on the porch.
Mornings in the park are quiet. The Harrisonburg / Shenandoah Valley KOA is a nice campground close to Skyline Drive. Skyline Drive is a 105-mile National Parkway that runs the entire length of the National Park Service’s Shenandoah National Park in the Blue Ridge Mountain range. The speed limit is only 35 mph, so It takes about three hours to travel the entire length of the Park on a clear day. We hope to drive some of the Skyline Parkway during this stay.
God Bless, Stay Safe, Be Kind to Every Kind and no matter what you do in life, have fun doing it.
