Dirt lot next to visitors center. Shade with full Verizon. Next to active train tracks. Spent one night in van and moved along!

Stayed here one night, got in late and left early. We didn't hear any trains pass this night. Good spot for one night while traveling through Shenandoah NPReport Check-In
Safe spot at a historical train depot in a historical town right up against an active rail line. Had 3 trains go by throughout the night but no big deal. It was fun being able to walk to town from this location. Bonus - Brewery 2 blocks away!Report Check-In
As described. We had 2 trains pass in the night but it was no big deal. About a 15 minute drive to access Shenandoah national park via the Thornton Gap EntranceReport Check-In
This is actually a nice place in the center of Luray. The town seems pretty decent and we didn't experience any problems. The gravel parking lot is to the right of the Luray Visitor center which is the old train station in the center of town. The train line active and actually pretty cool. Norfolk Southern hauling about 100 cars of truck containers of goods, a few box cars, some coal, some oil, and lumber. (There's nothing wrong with trains hauling the cargo that keeps America rolling...) There are some restaurants and a convenience store within walking distance. This is a fine spot to boondock for one night and then continue on your journey.Report Check-In
This was as others described - a gravel lot by the Luray Visitors Center & truly right next to train tracks. Only 1 train came through while I stayed which to me wasn’t bad at all. I’d stay here again - it felt safe & has great access to Shenandoah NPReport Check-In
It’s directly in front of train tracks so don’t expect to get a good night sleep. There’s a row of houses directly across the street. Good for a night but that’s itReport Check-In
