“President Hoover's retreat”

Rapidan Camp is the former summer retreat of President Herbert and First Lady Lou Henry Hoover. The President's House has been historically refurnished and The Prime Minister's cabin is the site of an exhibit. The exhibit explains the Hoovers' choice of a vacation home in Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains and tells the story of their tumultuous presidency. Check the ranger programs schedule for directions and times to visit. You can hike (4 miles round trip or a 7.4-mile loop) to Rapidan Camp.

I'd suggest visiting on a ranger-led tour, that way you know the museum and house will be open, plus you get all that extra background info that adds important context to what you're seeing... otherwise it's just a bunch of old buildings. That being said, I'm glad they kept some buildings and they've done a good job of preserving it!
