I can't get the one for Shenandoah to work. It sends me to their facebook page but there is no mention of this anywhere that I can find.

Is membership on Facebook required to enter the contest? The rules say an e-mail address is required, but seem to assume membership in Facebook without stating that it is required.

Never mind....I can't read!

Rule No. 3:

3. How to Enter. If applicable as part of entry, “Like” Shenandoah National Park Lodging on Facebook, and any additional partner(s). Fill out the required entry form, limit one entry per person and per e-mail address. Entrants must have a valid e-mail address.

It would seem inapplicable to "Like" a national park on Facebook if one is not on Facebook. However, the instructions seem to assume membership. Since I do not have a Facebook account, am I unable to enter the contest?

You ask a tough question, Will. Your logic is sound, however. Here's rule No. 12:

12. This promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Facebook. You understand that you are providing your information to ARAMARK Parks and Destinations and to National Park Foundation, not to Facebook. The information you provide will only be used for sending subscribers updates, announcements and deals.

That would seem to indicate you don't need to have a Facebook page, but I can't find any specific language that mentions whether you need one, or what to do if you don't have one.

Hi All,
I represent ARAMARK Parks and Destinations. You will be able to enter the contest for Shenandoah between 8/15 - 8/21, that's why there's currently no mention of the contest on the page. While there is no direct mention of having to have an account on Facebook, part of the contest requirements are that you have to "Like" Shenandoah National Park Lodging's Facebook page. In order to do that you have to have a Facebook account.
