Harper's Ferry is a little town in WV nestled right next to the Potomac River. It's also a convenient halfwayish point on the Appalachian Trail. One of my friends and I stayed here while we were section hiking the AT. The campground is pretty nice, with cabins, tent sites, and RV sites. It's also got a lot of extra activities that you can do. Zip lining, tubing, rafting the Potomac, and even an adventure park, you name it. You definitely won't be bored wile staying at this campground.
Harper's Ferry is a pretty neat place too. There are some great restaurants, cool shops, and make sure to make a stop at the AT Conservatory. There you can see cool pictures of all the people who have through hiked the AT and learn more about it.
Speaking of the AT, there are great hiking and biking trails right around Harper's Ferry. You can even say you hiked all the way to Virginia from West Virginia. Just don't tell anyone that Harper's Ferry is right on the border.
The hike that leads to the lookout about harpers ferry was fantastic. This hike takes you well above the town settled in West Virginia. While some points are pretty steep don’t let this deter you from completing it. The trail is well maintained, marked, and exciting. It is filled with tons of history and when you walk across the bridge from the town be looking out for all the locks on the bridge that have been left behind by other avid hikers
Gorgeous spot on the river. Small campground with not a lot of amenities BUT THAT RIVER IS GORGEOUS. Lots of activities - tubing, zip lining, fishing.
Nice river front sites, and pool in the campground. Close to historic Harpers Ferry and lots of great hiking.
Great place! Lots to do on-site. Tent camped and really had a great time. Harper’s Ferry is a beautiful place to hike, camp and visit. Highly recommended!
This campground has an abundance of things to do. The campground offers adventures like rafting, biking, tubing and zip lining to name a few. If you would like to do some exploring, then you can walk the trail right next to the campground into the historical town of Harper's Ferry. From there you can grab a bite and drinks, visit the history of Harper's Ferry or continue exploring more hiking trails. There are train tracks behind the campground with a train going through day and night. It has never bothered us or our daughter who even as a baby slept through it. You can always bring ear plugs if you tend to be a light sleeper. There are cabins, RV hookups and tent sites. Bathroom and showers located nearby. There is also a groundskeeper to help you with anything you need. Overall it's a great family spot!
Such a beautiful place. As well as the people.
Wonderful tent campground. It is right on the river so you can go swimming right from your campsite! The only downside is you are directly next to train tracks but being from the city, this noise doesn't bother my husband or me. The camp ground is part of river riders which offers lazy tubing, white water tubing, zip lining, and great kayaking down the river. There is also great fishing right from you campsite as well. It's not the most private and serene campsite and I recommend using the portipotties not the toilets in the trailer. But honestly when it comes to getting away who really cares where the bathroom is as long as you have great water, sunshine, and wonderful company near by:-) have fun!
