You can get real-time views of several areas in Shenandoah National Park from web cameras!
Our Air Quality webcam is a view from the Pinnacles area (near mile 36.7) into the valley to the northwest. This link takes you to an NPS air quality site that has live air quality data from Shenandoah, as well as links to webcams and data from other national parks.
The Mountain View webcam is also a view from the Pinnacles area into the valley toward the town of Luray. Use this to check the weather in the park or to track the fall color!
Big Meadows webcam looks south from Byrd Visitor Center at milepost 51. It's a great way to check the weather on the mountain, which can be very different from lower elevations. You can also monitor the changes in the meadow after the annual spring burn, or watch the wildlife that frequents Big Meadows!
There's also a Traffic Cam at Rockfish Gap at the southern end of Skyline Drive where it connects with the Blue Ridge Parkway near Route 64. This camera is operated by the Virginia Department of Transportation. This area on Afton Mountain can be treacherous when it's foggy, so use this camera to check weather and traffic.

Did You Know?
Although it’s native to these mountains, much of the beautiful mountain laurel you see blooming along Skyline Drive in June was planted by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s.
