Take a Deep Dive in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley
The scenic Shenandoah Valley in western Virginia makes a great destination for RVers with its quiet wooded campgrounds, miles of trails, and historic caves, including Endless Caverns near the town of New Market.
At the foot of the Massanutten Mountain range, Endless Caverns is a 6-mile natural underground tunnel system with guided tours as well as an on-site campground. RVers can not only find peace and quiet in spacious full hookup sites, but also discounted tour rates in addition to many on-site amenities.
Explore local caves on a guided tour
Take one of their guided cave tours through the Endless Caverns tunnel system. Their knowledgeable tour guides explain the unique history and geology of the cave in great detail. The limestone solution cave, originally discovered in October 1879 as a deep hole covered by boulders, has seemingly endless tunnels and chambers. According to Endless Caverns, many areas of the cave have yet to be explored and remain completely untouched.
The tours are about a mile long and last about 75 minutes. They showcase several different cave rooms like the Yosemite Room and The “Curtain Room”, each with their own unique rock formations.
Tours are available to the public, but rates are discounted for campers ($15 for adults, $7 for kids). They also have group rates available for groups of 15 people or more.

We recently stayed at Endless Caverns, and thought it was a well laid out, nice camp ground even though everything was closed due to COVID. The Cave tour was one of the best we had been on in the area.
Well worth a stay!
Cool beans !

Endless Caverns Campground is a hidden gem. It’s easy to find right, off the highway. Large pull-thru sites with full hook ups. You feel like you are in the middle of no where even though you aren’t. Very woodsy, spacious sites. In the town, just down the road, is a great restaurant too! Also, the staff is great. Can’t wait to go back.
