Back in the woods of the just outside of the Central Region of the Shenandoah National Park on the eastern side of the Blue Ridge mountains is the massive Rosser Lamb cabin (but really a house).

Rosser Lamb is a great spot for a large group of campers. It has THREE porches including a covered porch that is great for sleeping, eating and chilling.

Inside there is a large kitchen area, with ample counter space and a wood burning stove. However if you have a lot of people in your party I recommend bring a gas stove to this cabin. Also downstairs is a room that works as a bedroom or a living room.
Upstairs there is a "master bedroom" with one large bed. Also upstairs is a large loft like room. There are several bed frames, and mattress pads.

Entry Run trail runs just pass Rosser Lamb. A quick drive will take you to Old Rag and White Oak Canyon hike.  Both are moderate to intense day hikes, 7+ miles that require you to bring in plenty of water. Old Rag, is especially intense because at its peak is a half mile rock scramble.

Sprout for water and creek

As always, leave the cabin cleaner than you found it, leave more fire wood than you burn, never leave food, Be Safe; Have Fun.
