Learn and Explore

Ranger-guided programs give visitors the opportunity to explore the wonders of Shenandoah with a Ranger. Discover stories of Shenandoah's past, take a walk through a unique mountain meadow, or learn about the animals and plants that thrive here. You never know what you'll learn next!


Ranger Programs

In-person ranger programs are typically offered in the spring, summer, and fall.

Virtual Ranger Programs

Can't make it to Shenandoah? We've got you covered. You can still follow a Park Ranger as they teach you about a variety of topics in our series of virtual ranger programs designed to give you the full ranger program experience from wherever you are in the world.

Rapidan Camp Tours

Rapidan Camp tours are typically offered in the spring, summer, and fall. If you can't attend in person, check out our virtual tours of the Brown House and the Prime Minister's Cabin.

Rapidan Camp is the former summer retreat of President Herbert and First Lady Lou Henry Hoover. Starting with a shuttle ride from Byrd Visitor Center, Ranger-guided tours of Rapidan Camp include time inside both the Brown House and the Prime Minister's Cabin, as well as time exploring the grounds and gardens within this historic landmark. When offered, tours are available by reservation only; visitors may book a reservation up to 6 months in advance and up to 4 hours before the tour.
