Looking for a little adventure? This is a great place to start. I am not terribly athletic so I chose the white water tubing adventure. The staff was very friendly. It started with a call to gather a little information. The clerk on the phone was very friendly, offered some tips and really tried to listen and accommodate our wishes.... More

Float along the Potomac River was relaxing and fun. We took our time and made a few stops along the way to chill out on... More

Took my nine year old river rafting today. The guides were all top notch, the equipment was in perfect shape and they took safety seriously. One great ride, not too fast nor too slow, If your in the area, visit this establishment. Spend two days away for the rat race and get on the river. Don't forget to tip out... More

We celebrated with Ziplining and it was great fun. Only wish the course was longer. Josh and Dave were great guides making sure that we were all safe and comfortable. I am not keen on heights but they were great and encouraging. Just do it!

Perfect location for a White-Water Rafting day-trip. We wanted to go somewhere that was close from DC- yet offered a variety from which to choose from. While we ended up only doing the rafting, there is a mirage of other outdoor activities one can take part in at the Harpers Ferry Adventure Center. I recommend you check out their website... More

I took our church youth group to go whitewater rafting. Everything from our arrival, the bus ride, launch, the awesome guides (SpaceBob & Mike), rafting, and departure was top notch.
