Campground reopened with soft opening April 1 2014! The lake has reopened; the place is looking real good and has many improvements to the sites both completed and ongoing! A great place located in Stuarts Draft, Va. A good alternative to Sharando Lake which while nice is small. There is water, electric, and sewer available. Also your cell works here so a pro and con! New owners seem very upbeat and seem to really want to make this place as good or better then it
 
    was previously! Well worth checking out! Says David Tressler

I miss this. This was our family vacation spot when I was growing up. My Moms work always had their annual picnic there. I was lucky enough to fall off the cable,
 however went back for a second trip and didn't fall. My family camped here every Memorial and Labor Day weekends for years. Occassionally other times also. We loved it and miss it. Please keep me informed as upgrades are made. Do to my Great neices and nephews, we must have a pool. Says Janet

I stopped by Shenandoah Acres Today to find it closed. I called the # on the door and asked them if they were planning to open again. He said he hopes to open
 
    again for the 2013 season. People are renting the cabins currently 6 months at a time. It seems like they are apts now. I asked if the campground was for sale. He said all things were possible... (Input submitted February 1st, 2013).
  Says Jim

Shenandoah Acers will reopen it gates this summer! As of July 1, 2011 the campground will be open year round. Altho the lake will not be open this year, the new managers are working somthing out that will take its place for this year... Says Kagome

Please, please, reopen the resort.  There are many, many families that I know who spent their vacations there and all would like to do so again (one being my 90 yr. old mother).  She asks me every spring if you have reopened the resort.

Never got the chance to go but looked like tons of fun, so sorry I never got to go. Says Scott C

SHENANDOAH ACRES CAMPGROUND re-opened in the Summer of 2009….. (See picture attached) Says Mike Desper

SHENANDOAH ACRES CAMPGROUND re-opened in the Summer of 2009. It is NOT the Old Resort; that portion remains closed and is unsafe for use. The campground offers several nice amenities and has made arrangements for swimming locally as the lake remains closed. Horseback riding is also available nearby and is run by the family who used to run it at the Old Resort. Please call for information: (540) 324-1031. Says Mike Desper (see picture)

When are you going to have horse back riding again? Says Anonymous

I went to this camp ground when I was younger with my Grandparents. They took my mom there when she was little, so I was hoping it would all be open, so my children could enjoy the great experience like I did as a child!!! Says Natasha

My family and everyone miss it miserably and I haven't seen it in 3 years but when we rode by it was very depressing and I remember everything from there and how it was.. even made me cry and ruined my day. My family had the best times there and wish they would re-open and soon a lot of the memories are there. The biggest part I miss is the game shack. We all would love to pitch in and help even donate if they would re-open it. Says Kayla Kennedy

Me and my whole family has been going here forever. My parents have been going since they started dating, and a lot of things have happened there. Some of my family members have been kicked out once or twice for having too good of a time. Says Anonymous

I AM SO SAD TO SEE THAT IT IS CLOSED I CAME THERE ABOUT 20 YEARS AGO AND HAD SO MUCH FUN WITH MY HUSBAND,BEST FRIEND AND HER HUSBAND  I WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO BRINGING MY KIDS THERE THIS SUMMER TO FIND THAT IT CLOSED.  I COULDNT STOP TALKING ABOUT THE TOWER AND CABLE THAT TOOK YOU FROM ONE SIDE OF THE LAKE TO THE OTHER.  I HOPE SOMEONE BUYS THIS PLACE AND RE OPENS IT FOR FAMILIES TO BE ABLE TO ENJOY.  WHAT A WASTE IF THAT IS NOT POSSIBLE.   Says MARCI

I've been going there every year till they closed even when my mother was pregnant with me I hope it's still kept somewhat the same. If they needed any help getting it going I'd be there. Says Levi Pogue

Shenandoah Acres Campground is OPEN!!
We were there over the July 4, 2009 holiday. Had a great time. Very clean, friendly, quiet. The lake and other stuff are not open now but they are looking at next year to make improvements. Met a couple of the owners and the Manager - Mike, VERY nice guy. Listened to Bluegrass music Saturday, ate some awesome food. They are just starting this back up. WE can help them by going there to camp. Tell everybody. Mike said a website will be up soon as they have just opened a few weeks ago. Says Doug

It is open again- at least the campground is, not the lake (too high of liability).

New bath house (with showers)nothing fancy but it is a great alternative to Sherando when it is full- 10 miles away.
Says Jeff

Look in the News Virginian (waynesboro paper 6-26-09). The campground is opening up. Says Becca

OMG!  My dad took us there and we camped.  We had the time of our lives as kids.  I came onto this site to get information so that we can take a family trip w/ my kids and now I learn it's GONE!  This is just so very sad for me.  Says Karen Va Beach VA

I grew up with going there as a child and then with my own children now I want to take grandchildren only to find it CLOSED.What is this world coming to - no wonder the younger generation gets into so much trouble - they don't have places like this anymore. Says Wanda Cooper

I'm sooo sad to hear that Shenandoah Acres has closed.  It was such a fun place for children.  I was hoping to come visit with my family and friends.  It's just not another place like it in Virginia that I know of.  Really do miss it !!!! Says CarolWoodson

I used to love going to the acres, me and my brothers used to save all winter for spending money and man did we have a ball... the giant slide, the dives, the beach house, the general store, the arcade the late summer nights sneaking into the lake after hours with the new friends we met Man would I love to reopen this wonderful place ........... Says Terry L

It is really a shame that this resort has been shut down. Soon there will no place left to take the family for a real down home outing. Says Judy

Sorry to hear shenandoah acres has closed?It has always been a fun place to visit and all of the campers seemed so happy..I hope it will re-open in the future. Says Anonymous

I grew up near the ''acres'' and lifeguarded their for 5 summers during the mid to late 70's.? The original family owners sold after the liability insurance forced them to remove all the pieces that made the acres what it was i.e., cable, diving boards, big slide, the top.? They put ina big slide on the backside of the tower called the Pink Zipper the year before selling, but that did not work as far as drawing crowds. Says Anonymous

Gosh! I don't beleive it. That is where my dad took us in the summer for our vacation with him. I had fond memories there. Why did it close? was it family owned? is it for sale? What, I hope it's not gone forever. Says S Boggs

Closed, you've got to be kidding. I have been looking forward to taking my family for years. The kids are finally old enough to enjoy the trip. I am down. Very sad, my family used to travel to this area often. When did it shut down? Says Anonymous

Wow, this is a SHOCK!! I haven't been there in a while but I never thought it would be closed. I remember when I was little me and my sister used to pay to ride the horses like twice a day I loved it. I also loved the big slide and I waited so long to be tall enough to ride on the thing you hang on to and glide down til you let go it was awesome. I'm really gonna miss it I wish there was some way to have it reopened...:( Says Chrissy

We really miss it alot and dont get up that way to see if someone has reopened it as campground or time share dose anyone know Says JEREMY

Did not know that it was closed until I read so on this site. What will become of the property now.....and does anyone know why it was shut down?? Says Scott:

I am so disapointed!My father brought me to shenandoah acres many years ago 1955-56.I found pics from that trip last week and wonted to revisit a happer time.so sad that I didn't get there at least one more time. Says diane busch (bowers)

I was so sorry to hear it closed. My ex-husband and I took our kids every year. Was hoping my boyfriend and his daughter could enjoy it this summer, since we finally got a camper!! Sorry to see you go. Says Pam

I read a review of Shenandoah Acres on here. I was shocked to hear that it was closed. My parents use to take my sister, brother and myself there every summer when we were little. It really was a great place. I was now hoping to be able to go there with my husband, who has never been there and to one day take our children, but I guess we will have to find a new safe place to take our children....It really is a shame to know that it is no longer open! Says The Stewarts

Shenandoah Acres closed down about 2 years ago. I am going to miss it. I went there several times a year for over 45 years. Says Debbie Bush
