Plan your visit to
Virginia National Parks
Virginia is one of the oldest states in the United States. It was one of the first established colonies and since that time the people of Virginia have embraced their rich heritage with gusto. One way they have done this is with the Virginia national parks. Within Virginia there are many national monuments depicting battles of the past, but there is only one established national park. Shenandoah national park is almost 200,000 acres of beautifully preserved landscape that calls to almost a million and a half visitors each year.
The reasons that people choose to visit Virginia national parks may be many, but the bottom line is that they want to see a depiction of what true wilderness living may have been like before technology and progress took over the nation. The park is full of history and beauty like no other place. It is true that you can take a stroll through many places throughout the United States during the fall season and see the foliage, but within Virginia national parks you are right in the middle of it with the leaves falling all around you. It is a truly unmatched experience.
There is no better way to experience all that Virginia national parks has to offer than with a little rest and relaxation under the stars. Campgrounds are found throughout the national parks for those that choose to camp with a few amenities, but if all you want is you and the great outdoors, then backcountry camping is for you. It should be noted that no matter how you camp, you should always keep in mind that you are residing on protected land and it is not just the ranger’s responsibility to keep it clean. Therefore, you need to ensure that whatever you bring in is what you bring out so there is no trace that humans were even there. That is good for the animals as well as future generations looking to visit Virginia national parks.
