Default camping/backpacking around Shenandoah Valley

My friends and I were planning on going camping/backpacking around the Shenandoah Valley area this weekend. We're looking for somewhere that we could park our cars (safely!) and camp out at. We want to be able to be decently close to our cars yet out of sight of other people. Most of the camping areas are full this weekend anyways.

I also heard that Shenandoah park has some strict rules, so I'm open to any places around that area in WV or VA.

Thanks

The Cove in Gore, VA
This is a good place to go, its not in the Shenandoah Valley but it is private camp ground with tons and tons of acres. I was there about 3 weeks ago. They have 3 lakes that you can fish on (no license needed) and use/rent canoes. Lots of dirt roads and trails.

thanks for the suggestion, but i'm looking for something a little more in-the-wild with lots of hiking trails and such.

GW National Forest. You could also make the drive to Dolly Sods in WV.

I've been to Dolly Sods and I loved it. I'm trying to talk my friends into going there.

I'm kinda paraniod about leaving my car out there for 4 days. Do you think I should put a car cover on it or just not worry about it?

Why would you need a cover for 4 days? I've left cars out for weeks at a time and they just get dusty.

I would try Old Rag, it could be very busy though. It's probably the best hike i've done on the east coast, there are also numerous campsites in the area.

Old Rag will be packed, as will all the connecting trails like White Oak. Go further west....Mt Solon and Stokesville VA, go west to FR86 that runs along the VA/WV border. We've got a favorite camping spot up on the ridge....half way to Reddish Knob as you drive north on the fire road. Room for ten cars and out of site from the main road.

this is another spot nearby, close to Little Bald Knob:

If you have one, you may as well use it, right?

Anyways, I ended up going to Shenendoah. It was nice, but I would not recommend it. No camp fires sucks. Not to mention the park rangers came 3 times and asked for our permits and such. It was kinda annoying. The place was beautiful, but I'd rather go somewhere else for backpacking. Skyline drive is a very nice road though even with all the bicyclists and wild life there.
