    We are visiting Virginia in October. The first half of our visit is planned, but I would like input to any park that you found especially accommodating for a large rig.  We have a 45′ bus with no slides and we tow a Dodge Ram pick-up. Also, please mention any places you visited that were interesting and any that we shouldn’t bother to visit. Our favorite activities are hiking and visiting other natural wonders. We also like to tour places with historical significance.  We do not drink beer or wine, so those places would not be very interesting to us.

    Hi there –

    I went to Va Tech and daughter played 4 years of soccer at Lynchburg College (NCAA Champs in 2015!), so I have a little knowledge of the state, although none as an RVer.

    I-81 is quite scenic especially in the southern half of the state.  Lots of great hiking along Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Pkwy, and in Shenandoah National Park.  Foliage in Oct should be beautiful, too.

    Be sure to hike and gape at Great Falls National Park along the VA/MD line just west of DC. Spectacular!

    Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyline Drive may not support large rigs, so be sure to confirm that roads in the parks can handle your rig.

    Thanks for the info. Shenandoah and Skyline were on our list, but I wasn’t sure Great Falls would be worth the trip.  We will definitely add it to the list! We are planning to visit DC, as well. We know to avoid some roads CB of our size. We look for RV parks nearby and go trekking in the truck.
