BENTONVILLE, Virginia - November 14, 2018 - Caroline, Penny and I got in a moderate 2.3 mile hike along the Shenandoah River today checking out this park. This state park is another of Virginia's gems. Well laid-out and maintained with an exceptionally well planned section for RV's. Put in on your list if you're coming this way!
