Highly recommend staying at the Luray KOA. Huge beautiful clean sites, great views, full hookup. Ten minute drive to the Thornton Gap.

Visiting Shenandoah NP is GREAT and time of the year and in any weather. On clear sunny days the view is awesome. On cool foggy days its a treat watching the fog roll up the mountain.

We are thinking about visiting Luray again this year in the Sept/Aug timeframe.

Enjoy your trip.

Great time of year to see bears and April is fine weather. Heck we had 77 degrees today. I used to live 6 miles drone the northern entrance. Now I live closer to the middle of the drive. It is a great to,e to go. I second KOA in Luray.

It's a **** shoot, at best. Yes, SNP is lovely, and yes, I understand that you have hats and mittens. But you won't get electric hookups at any of the SNP campgrounds. And if you opt to stay at a campground outside the park, you'll be doing a lot of driving up and down the winding mountain pass roads every time you want to go up into the park.

If you look at the weather forecast 7 to 10 days ahead of your trip, and it looks like it will work for you, and if you can bring a generator or do without electric for the duration, then you'll probably have a great time. I like the Big Meadows campground for a lot of reasons. Lurray Caverns will be a great day trip for all of you.

But, I'd have a "Plan B" for poor weather. You could get a solid week of low 40's, upper 30's and rain, rain, rain. Who needs that?
