It's hard to believe, but the Shenandoah Valley was once a floor of a great inland sea. Centuries ago, as that sea receded, the forces of Nature carefully etched out an awe-inspiring formation of solid rock. The Natural Chimneys tower as much as 120 feet above the pastoral terrain of the Shenandoah Valley, offering onlookers a sight unrivaled in majesty.
Natural Chimneys Park offers more than simply the splendor of towering limestone formations. Both day visitors and those who choose to stay overnight in the seasonal campground find plenty of space and opportunities for recreation, relaxation, and fellowship. There is a Junior Olympic size pool and a tot pool at Natural Chimneys. There are four picnic shelters available for rental at Natural Chimneys. A thirty by twenty-eight foot performance stage is situated on the south end of the lawn of the Natural Chimneys and creates a dynamic environment for performances and special events.
Natural Chimneys has a 145 site family-oriented campground with water and electrical hook-ups. The campground also has a separate section for primitive/tent campers with rather large, spacious sites. Camping is available in season, on a 'first come, first serve basis' by advanced reservation or walk-ins/drive-ins. Advanced reservations can be made on the Augusta County Parks and Recreation website.
- Family Friendly
- There is no fee to enter the park as a day visitor. Camping reservation fees vary depending on the type of site.
