I like it in the winter when less people are there.
I love everything about Shenandoah National Park. The views, scenery, landscapes, and the people we meet while enjoying the park are the reasons I love it so much.
If you haven't been to WHITE OAK CANYON, just past Syria,VA, you are missing something excellent. Should be on every parent's short list of easy day trips. Relatively easy trail through giant trees, The views are inspiring, and the swimming and playing opportunities are wonderful. Get in the car and go!!!
Our favorite part/thing about Shenandoah National Park is meeting there 18 years ago. We both worked for the National Park Service, I in Shenandoah and he on the BRP. We just celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary back in June.
I really like the bugs, heat, and humidity.
Great for bow hunting!
And, Shifflett, let's not forget the great jack-lighting. Man, you can just about take a stock trailer up there and lead Bambi right up the ramp.
