Verizon Cell Service

Does anyone know how Verizon service is in Shenandoah National Park? While I don’t want to be tied to my cell phone, I want to make sure I can contact family as needed!

Cell service along Skyline Drive is not great. There might be pockets where you can make a call, but there are many stretches that there is no service.

I have tried three different cell services over the past 10 years, and none provided me with call capability,

as soon as I headed to the area of Massanutten to Elkton, zilch coverage.

this includes Big Meadow. I had cell service AT & T in Luray.

Quite frankly, Verizon has the best coverage of all the service providers all along the Appaliachian Trail corridor.

It is along the ridge lines that reception will be the best, while it becomes less reliable when coming off the ridges.
