Nestled in the Shenandoah Valley of Northern Virginia, the Cedar Creek and Belle Grove National Historic Park offers deep American history coupled with breathtaking outdoor scenery that simply shouldn’t be missed. These national park grounds served as a home for Native Americans, pioneers and soldiers that fought in the Battle of Cedar Creek. If you haven’t visited the Cedar Creek and Belle Grove National Historic Park in Virginia yet, you’d better start planning your RV getaway today.
Things to Do at the Park
The Cedar Creek and Belle Grove National Historic Park serves to protect the Belle Grove Plantation, the site of the Battle of Cedar Creek and the gorgeous Shenandoah Valley. Visitors can enjoy the Cedar Creek and Belle Grove NHP Visitor Contact Station, the Belle Grove Plantation Manor House, the Hupp’s Hill Civil War Park and the Cedar Creek Battlefield Plantation Headquarters.
Rangers conduct a number of regular programs to teach visitors about the rich history of the area, and a number of movies, tours and orientation programs are open to the public. The extensive list of events for the fall of 2014 are listed on the national park’s website, so you can plan your trip according to your interests.
Park Hours and Fees
The Cedar Creek and Belle Grove NHP does not charge any fees to its visitors, and the numerous ranger programs are open to the public as well. Non-park visitor facilities like the Cedar Creek Battlefield Foundation and Belle Grove Plantation are not part of the national park’s non-profit organization and may charge a fee for entry.
The National Historic Park is open daily from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., but it is closed Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Day. The Belle Grove Plantation and Cedar Creek Battlefield Foundation may operate on different hours than the national park, so check their individual websites before visiting.
