Rapidan Camp Tour
Rapidan Camp was President Hoover's weekend retreat. It was a precursor to Camp David in Maryland. It's now part of Shenandoah National Park where you can either hike or take a van for a tour. The tour meets at Big Meadows Byrd Visitor's center.
The van ride has some pretty good shots of the Big Meadows.

Rapidan River: Exploring the Rapidan Wildlife Management Area PART ONE
The Rapidan Wildlife Management Area is a very large area of mostly forested, rugged mountain terrain located primarily in Madison County, Virginia. Many parts of the Wildlife Management Area border the Shenandoah National Park, and outdoor adventure opportunities are numerous. If you are 17 years old or older, you will need an Access Permit, unless you possess a valid Virginia Hunting or Fishing license. There are a few other exceptions as well depending on your circumstances. Hunting and fishing are the main uses of the Rapidan area, but wildlife viewing, hiking, primitive camping, and many other opportunities also exists. There are numerous streams and creeks draining the area, including the Rapidan River that is highlighted in this video. Thanks for watching!
Lower Falls on Staunton River in Shenandoah National Park, Virginia
Graves Mill area in Shenandoah National Park, Madison County, Virginia. This is another short hike in one of my favorite places to visit in Madison County, Virginia. I stop here almost every time I'm in the area. I start my hike at the Graves Mill access area of Shenandoah National Park, a small parking lot along the Rapidan River near Wolftown. The hike begins on the Graves Mill Trail, which runs parallel to the river. I continue this trail until it reaches the confluence of the Rapidan and the Staunton River, which despite the name is more like a creek than a river. It is a short hike upstream following the Staunton River to a nice cascading waterfall with a pool below the falls. As far as I know the falls themselves are not named. There are numerous cascades, waterfalls, and swimming holes all along this creek; however, today I did not have much time and I turned around after viewing the first waterfall. Thanks for watching!

Follow along as the Lively Legz Crew takes on native brook trout fishing in Virginia on the beautiful Rapidan RIver.
Three Trout Bums... er... Marines from Quantaco.
These guys rolled into the 2-Fly Tournament after camping and fly fishing on the Rapidan Wildlife Area. They immediately pitched a tent on Rose River Farm by the pond.
They are fellow members of the Project Healing Waters - Quantaco Program.
They sound like Trout Buns to me, but don't be fooled. They are United States Marines!

Big Meadows and Skyline Drive Shenandoah
Kaytee and I took a slight look at Big Meadows while driving around Skyline Drive.
Big Meadows is a recreational area of the Shenandoah National Park in Madison County and Page County, in the US state of Virginia. The meadow is located on the Skyline Drive at Milepost 51 and contains the park's Harry F. Byrd Visitor Center, a lodge, camp store, and camping area. Several hiking trails can be accessed from Big Meadows, including the Mill Prong Trail which leads to Rapidan Camp on the Rapidan River, the fishing retreat of President Herbert Hoover from 1929–1933, which is now restored to its 1930s configuration.
President Roosevelt used Big Meadows in 1935 as the site for dedicating Shenandoah National Park and Skyline Drive. In 1962, during the Ash Wednesday Storm, Big Meadows recorded Virginia's greatest 24-hour snowfall with 33 inches, and the total storm snowfall was 42 inches at Big Meadows. In the Blizzard of 1996, Big Meadows recorded Virginia's greatest storm snowfall accumulation at 47 inches. Big Meadows Site was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.

Historic Corbin Cabin in Shenandoah National Park
The Corbin Cabin is a log structure built by George T. Corbin in 1909 in the Nicholson Hollow area of what is now Shenandoah National Park. Corbin was forced to vacate the land on which the cabin sits in 1938, when the land was added to Shenandoah National Park. The cabin is unique in that it is one of a small number of buildings located in Nicholson Hollow spared during the creation of the park, and still remains standing despite recent forest fires. This is a link on the area and the trail and there are a few ways to get where I was -
Please note that this cabin can only be used by reservation only. See this website for details -
