Shenandoah River

Float and boat, splash and soak — spend a day on the storied South Fork.

Take in a different view of Page Valley from the middle of the South Fork of the Shenandoah River — the old meandering river of “Oh Shenandoah” fame. Renowned for its beauty and opportunities for fishing and boating, the Shenandoah River in Page Valley stretches for 55 miles. Public access points facilitate opportunities to plan a wide variety of float trips of varying distances for the thousands of visitors who take to the South Fork each year. Page Valley outfitters help river-goers plan their trips, arrange transportation, and rent equipment.
