Shenandoah Valley Campsite?

We are going to New Hampshire in late May or early June and will want to spend some time in the Shenandoah Valley (never been but it is on my list). Will probably want to stay 3 - 4 days toward the southern end first then go up in the northern portion for 3 - 4 days.
We are in a 34 ft. class A MH with toad. Coming in from the south on I-81. Looking for recommendations of campgrounds and some sights to see.
Thanks for you help,

Thanks for you help,
You might consider looking at the Shenandoah National Park. Although the campgrounds aren't 'big rig' friendly, there are a couple that will easily accommodate you. Here's a link to some info: https://www.nps.gov/shen/planyourvisit/campgrounds.htm They're typical NP sites (no electric/water/sewer with somewhat restrictive generator hours).

Be aware that the Marys Rock Tunnel is a vehicular tunnel on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Located at mile marker 32.2 on Skyline Drive, the scenic byway that traverses the length of Shenandoah National Park, it is the only vehicular tunnel in the park and has a 12' 8" limit.

The Harper's Ferry National Historic Park (https://www.nps.gov/hafe/index.htm) is worth a visit, too.

Take care,
Stu

We just needed an overnight stay but want to return as a "destination". It was, still is, a Passport America campground.

On that trip the previous night we stayed at what is now a KOA

Stayed at the Harrisonburg/Shenandoah Valley KOA in October 2019. The KOA is ~30 minutes to the Shenandoah NP allowing us to spend time at the northern portion before heading farther south. The campground was very nice and, although we were staying in a 17' Teardrop Camper, there were quite a few large rigs there.

We booked 3 days in May at Spacious Skies campground in Lurray VA. We stayed there quite a few years ago when it was a KOA and liked it a lot. We have stayed at the Harrisonburg KOA several times and it was nice. However you do have to cross a stream to get there and it was flooded with 2 feet of water last summer. We had to drop the toad and back up for half a mile to get out. Endless Caverns is in that area and that campground is nice as well.

Another vote for Spacious Skies (formally Luray KOA). Get a back in pergola site and you will have magnificent views of the Blue Ridge and Appalachian mountains. Seen some really spectacular sunsets there. Relatively close to Luray Caverns and some nice easy hiking trail heads.

I agree with others about Spacious Skies. Minutes to Skyline Drive and Luray. Close to some caverns as well.

Thanks all. We are now reserved at the KOA at Natural Bridge and then at Spacious Skies.
On the way up I will try to stay in Lazy Llama Campground east of Knoxville. Looks interesting; has anyone ever stayed there?
Also am checking out Axhuelot River Campground near Keene, NH. Any experience there?
Thanks,

Thanks for the tip about Spacious Skies. We stayed at Endless Caverns several years ago, liked the campground, didn't have enough time to enjoy the area.

We stayed at Spacious Skies, when it was a KOA in 2019. We really enjoyed it. The Pergola Sites are nice.
