SHENANDOAH NATIONAL PARK FACILITIES SCHEDULE
The park’s facilities open for spring on a rolling schedule, with Skyland the first to offer food and lodging, scheduled to open today (March 22). Big Meadows Wayside opens next week (March 29), and Elk Wallow Wayside opens the following week, March 30. For those itching for a trail ride, Skyland Stables opens April 6. Big Meadows Lodge doesn’t open until May 9. Further south in the park, Lewis Mountain Cabins and Campstore should be open (barring weather issues), with Loft Mountain Wayside opening March 29.
Of the two visitor centers, Byrd opens first, on March 23, followed by Dickey Ridge, on April 6. Weather is wreaking havoc with the schedule this year. On Tuesday, the entire park was closed because of hazardous conditions.
