Front Royal Area:

Front Royal, Warren County and the surrounding area are rich in history and natural beauty and offer many unique and varied year round recreational and leisure activities sure to satisfy our visitors. It is also known as the Canoe Capital of Virginia. thanks in part to the 39 miles of scenic waterways better known as the North and South forks of the Shenandoah River that meet just west of the town of Front Royal, and the main river that continues toward Clarke County, northward. The North and South forks of the river meet at Riverton, west of Front Royal, where it heads north to Clarke County, and ultimately, Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, where it meets the Potomac River. In Warren County the river offers calm waters for a leisurely canoe ride and rapids ideal for kayaking. Boating, rafting and tubing also are popular.

The areas provides numerous opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors by canoeing, tubing, kayaking, hiking, horseback riding, fishing, zip lining, wine tasting, golf or visiting of the two wonderful National or State parks whose entrance are only 6 miles from our cabin.

Skyline Drive / Shenandoah National Park:

Skyline Drive and the Shenandoah National Park bring more visitors to Warren County than any other attraction. The park and drive extend 105 miles over mountain tops from Afton in the south to Front Royal in the north, and parallel a 95-mile portion of the Appalachian Trail. The park draws more than 2 million visitors a year; about 500,000 of them enter at the Front Royal entrance on US 340, about a quarter-mile south of the town.

The 195,000-acre park combines protected mountain land with trails and beautiful views. The park's trails, varying from short walks to 12-hour hikes, intersect with waterfalls, streams, old home sites and scenic vistas. Wildflowers, more than 205 species of birds, white-tailed deer and black bear abound.

This park is on the South Fork of the Shenandoah River and has more than 1,600 acres along 5.2 miles of shoreline. The park opened in June 1999. In addition to meandering river frontage, the park offers scenic views of Massanutten Mountain to the west and Shenandoah National Park to the east. A large riverside picnic area, picnic shelters, trails, river access and a car-top boat launch make this a popular destination for families, anglers and canoeists. Ten riverfront tent campsites, a campground with water and electric sites, cabins, camping cabins and a group campground are available.

Virginia Canopy Tours

During the canopy tour, participants will enjoy stunning views of the Massanutten Mountains and the gorgeous hardwood forest of the Shenandoah Valley. Guests will learn the rich history of the Shenandoah Valley, native plant species, and the wild inhabitants who make the woods their home.

Participants will soar through the Shenandoah hardwood forest at speeds which can exceed 40 miles per hour and at heights reaching 90 feet above the forest floor - all while attached to two steel cables. The canopy tour finale is an adrenaline pumping 1,035’ zip down the face of the ridge to our rappel.

Allow approximately three hours for our canopy tour, which consists of: ground school, UTV trail ride, 8 zip lines, 1 sky bridge, 1 air stair bridge, 2 nature walks and a rappel.

All participants receive individual safety and braking training and are accompanied by two certified eco-trained guides. Participants are attached to our cables by lanyards whenever above the forest floor. All safety equipment is handled by our guides 100% of the time. Virginia Canopy Tours™ reserves the right to exclude anyone from participation.

Shenandoah River Activities:

There are three boating companies in the area which offer numerous options for floating down the river. The South Fork of the Shenandoah River is one of the nation's best for smallmouth and largemouth bass, rockbass, redbreast sunfish, bluegill, muskellunge and channel catfish. The North Fork, meanwhile, offers anglers smallmouth bass and redbreast sunfish, and the mainstream offers all species except muskellunge.

State residents age 16 and over are required to obtain a fishing license before fishing on inland waters. Nonresidents over age 12 need a license. All persons needing a license also need to purchase a National Forest stamp when fishing in waters within the boundary of the Washington and Jefferson National Forest, except on the North and South forks of the Shenandoah River. Licenses are sold at authorized agents located throughout the county, but not at the county clerk's office.
