    • Shenandoah NP without a car

      Shenandoah Oct 17, 2016 at 11:58 AM

      Hi ! Im travelling from Washington DC, Id like to camp and hike in Shenandoah NP. There are some buses, trains, amtrak etc going to the skyline area, but I can't decide which city precisely I should choose as a start for my discovery of the area.
      I know that I can easily find a camping there, but I admit that passing by one of the visitor centers would be great before I start hiking !
      I haven't planned to rent a car, so I wonder if you know any entrance easy to reach by foot or by bus.
      Which of the 4 entrances do you think is the closest to beautiful siteseeing and can be reached without driving ?
      Thanks a lot for your anwers !

      Jamestown Festival Park

      by grandmaR Online Now Apr 7, 2012 at 6:47 PM

      There are two parks for Jamestown. One is the Historic Jamestowne jointly administered by the NP and The Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities and one is a Virginia State Park called Jamestown Festival Park. The NP has jurisdiction over Jamestown Island, but the location of Jamestown seems to be on the island also.

      Shouldn't the National Park have a separate entry?

      Should I put the NP tips on Jamestown Island (where there are no tips) or on Jamestown together with the Jamestown Festival Park?
