Twenty acres of beautiful wooded campground, backed up to the Appalachian Trail on South Mountain provide an ideal setting for year-round camping, hiking and river rafting fun. The seclusion, peace and quiet of our campsites offer a relaxing atmosphere to slow down, escape from your busy schedule and enjoy the surrounding nature. A perfect choice for a rustic wedding venue, romantic getaway or an affordable weekend family vacation.
Maple Tree Campground is located near Harpers Ferry, West Virginia and is close to Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, Maryland. Our unique lodging includes our NEW Hobbit House, cozy Tree Cottages, rustic Tree Houses and Tent Camp Sites. All are equipped with fire circles, picnic tables and charcoal grills. Our campground facilities offer indoor bathrooms, private outdoor hot showers, indoor heated winter shower, multi-use pavilion and a camp shop stocking firewood, charcoal, ice, and other food and camping items you may have forgotten to pack. We are also pet friendly!
We’ve been here more than a dozen times, and have never had a bad experience.
Location is great, very close to Va/WV border. In fact, the AT runs directly behind the campground and is only a 6mi walk into Harper’s Ferry southbound. Backwoods site 3 mi south on ridge line is also a nice place for a beginners backpack.
From groups of 2 to 20, backpackers or glampers , Treehouse camp has a site that will work for you. We have stayed in all four of their site options at one time or another:
1) Cabins- Small houses on stilts with windows, mattresses, and a wood stove. Perfect for glamping, year round availability.
2) Treehouse- very similar to the cabins, only these are screened in and open air, with no windows or stove. A little tougher, but still very comfortable
3) Group/Tent Sites- Walk-in sites with fire pit, grill, and picnic table. More space and privacy than most public forest campgrounds
4) 4x4 sites- the road up South Mountain gets a little tricky as you go up, and these sites require a 4x4 vehicle
The staff has always been friendly and accommodating.
We specifically picked a campsite that was secluded because we just wanted a quiet getway. We got a spot that required 4 wheel drive but we were all for it since we have a Jeep and it was secluded. Well, the Jeep still got roughed up because of the GIANT boulders going up to the site- not cool. Also we get up to the top and we have neighbors that we could see quite clearly only about 15 yards away, and every time they squatted to go to the bathroom in the woods we could see them which was kind of awkward. It wouldn't have been as big of a deal if we weren't specifically told it was a secluded spot which is why we went there. We walked around and it seems like the majority of the sites are right on the driving path. The people who run the place are super nice and check in to see if you are ok and have great stuff at their general store that don't rip you off.
This campground is family owned and operated. The family lives right on the campground and the showers and bathroom are actually attached to there house. The family is nice and makes you feel welcome, they come by every so often and check in on you and ask if you need anything. The campground is quite and well kept. There are tree house cottages and cabins that are awesome! We only tent camped but can’t wait to go back and stay in a cabin on day!
The campground is also pet friendly which is a huge plus for us!
