Yes, it can hold two tents, as long as they're both not huge! There are four campgrounds in Shenandoah National Park: Mathews Arm (mile 22.1), Big Meadows (mile 51.2), Lewis Mountain (mile 57.5) and Loft Mountain (mile 79.5)

Keep in mind that this website is a service of American Parks Network, publisher of official guidebooks for the parks, not the Park Service itself (either national or state). It's likely that noone on the question board is a ranger in the AWW area, but I found the following contact info that should help you find the info you need:

Allagash Wilderness Waterway

c/o Bureau of Parks and Lands Northern Region Headquarters

106 Hogan Road

Bangor, ME 04401
