Shenandoah Valley Trip

Saturday, May 19: Start vacation and drive out to the Shenandoah Valley south of Strasburg, Va. After driving through the town of Woodstock [Rt #11 parallels the North Fork of the Shenandoah], choose to spend the night in Edinburg.

The Creekside Campground is a smaller [under 40] campground with electricity and water at all sites, and sewer and cable TV at others. The owners are very friendly and conscientious in their efforts--wonderful landscaping and impeccably clean bathrooms and showers. Pets on leash are welcome.
Our campsite was less than 12 feet from Stoney Creek, a tributary of the North Fork of the Shenandoah River. We could see the creek and hear the sound from the riffles nearby--very tranquil.

As a bonus, we were able to see a setting moon with Venus immediately adjacent to it--quite a sight! From the campground you can walk across a one-lane bridge [Stoney Creek] and into the historic district on Edinburg!
