Sunsets and Restrooms
May 2021
With Covid, VCs are not exactly what they used to be. However, this one is particularly good for two things, restrooms and sunsets. First any National Park that is primarily a 35 mph road for more than 100 miles needs a place to go, and the restrooms here are the nicest in the park. The detached restroom facility appears to be recently built with sufficient capacity to handles numbers of people.

Why do people congregate here? Besides the VC, this has a great sunset view and it is very close (3-4 miles inside the park entrance) to Front Royal where we stayed our last night. After eating in town, we drove up here to watch the sunset facing west behind the VC.

Finally, this is only minutes from the premier Shenandoah National Park sign if you like getting pictures of those.

North end of the park
Oct 2020 • Family
Just about five miles into the park on the north side, Dickey Ridge is well-placed for those who had to wait in the long line of cars to enter the park. Plenty of parking, good bathrooms, a great view, and a gift shop all combine to make this a great start to the trip!

the folks at this visitors center were very helpful and informative on the surrounding trails and gave a little insight as to the history of the families that lived there.

You can find information, gifts and help at this location. Large parking lot. Spacious field with a view of the valley to the west of the Shenandoah. Good bathroom facilities also.

Orientation
Sep 2019
This visitors center is a very good way to orient yourself to the NP if entering from Front Royal. Worth a stop to pick up maps and talk with the rangers. Museum is small; the Gift Shop is almost as big and well stocked. Buy something to support the NPs.

Easy Parking for a 23 ft RV but I did not see specific bus or RV parking spots.

Clean bathrooms.

Mile Five
Jan 2020
I had not been on this northern end of Skyline Drive for over forty years and was excited to take advantage of the Fee-Free day on MLK Monday. The park is clean, the rangers are professional and nice, but at mile five the gate was locked and sorry folks that's all.
The visitor Center looks nice, but it was locked too. They did have restrooms open.
The views looking west are great, just wish we could have gone further south to see some of the eastern views as well.

Nice pitstop
Oct 2019 • Family
This is a nice place to stop and stretch your legs along Skyline Drive. They have restrooms, a gift shop and snack foods. Also if you have a National Parks passport, they have a cancellation station here for your stamps.
