Historic Rapidan Camp Tour in Shenandoah National Park
Visitors to Shenandoah National Park, located in the stunning Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, can visit Rapidan Camp, President Herbert Hoover's rustic and beautiful summer vacation home. President and First Lady Hoover established Rapidan Camp as a summer retreat during his administration (1929 to 1933). The camp features three original buildings including the President's Cabin, the Prime Ministers Cabin and The Creel.
Access to Rapidan Camp involves traveling in a Park-operated van on a seven mile unpaved administrative road. For this reason, visitors must join a Ranger-guided program to travel to the site. Ranger-guided programs to Rapidan Camp are offered Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays each week between late-May and late-October. A Ranger-guided tour of Rapidan Camp includes time inside both the Brown House and the Prime Minister's Cabin, as well as time exploring the grounds and gardens within the Historic Landmark.
Rapidan Camp tours are available by reservation only. Tour space is limited.
