I almost wanted to give up on this trip, since after we arrived we got hit with a seriously huge, huge storm! It just sat right on top of us for about 45 minutes pouring buckets and slamming us with thunder and lightning. The trail down the hill was a river. Our treehouse (Eagle) started leaking right away, all down... More

I stayed here with my son for 3 days from June 8 to June 11. Check in was 2 but we got there at 1 and everything was fine. The office is clean and they have sodas and snacks for you to buy if you want. The road to the oriole is a little rough but not as bad as... More

I booked a quick mid-week getaway for me and my wife. We had an amazing time from the time we stepped on the property until the moment we pulled off. The grounds were serene, peaceful and relaxing. We loved the Willow Tree Cottage, the bunk was surprisingly comfortable. We loved the wood stove. We can't wait until we can return,... More

This is a really awesome campsite. I booked for our Girl Scout troop, and we had one tent and several cabins. All of the sites are clean, they each have a charcoal grill and a fire circle. The staff are very friendly and keep the bathrooms clean and well-stocked. There are a combination of treehouses (no insulation), tree cottages (insulated,... More

Hello, I am so sorry to hear you had that experience! The majority of the time our nights are very peaceful and campers are respectful of one another. We have a system for enforcing the quiet hours, we walk between 11 and mid-night to let people know if they are being too loud, and encourage all campers when they check... More

We stayed in the Cypress cabin for a 2-night mini escape with our two dogs... this was our first time staying in a cabin here (before, we utilized the tent camping spaces). Again, we had an excellent time. The cabin was cozy and clean. The staff were nice and accommodating. And the location is great, right there near Harper's Ferry... More

My friends and I had our "girls' weekend" trip at Maple Tree Campground. We stayed in one of the tree cottages (one of the not-so-new/but still really fantastic ones). There were 6 of us plus one special needs dog and we were all able to comfortably coexist/sleep in this cottage. Everything was in great condition and the owners really do... More

I was so looking forward to a peaceful weekend away camping in the woods. Unfortunately I picked the wrong campground! I spent two nights at Maple Tree and it was the most unsettling camping experience I have ever had. The camp hosts large groups of children (Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, Youth Camping) in close proximity to regular campgrounds- so, you... More

Hello, I am so sorry you had a bad experience. Last Friday an inexperienced girl scout group arrived very late and were loud. Joeanne escorted them late night and tried to help them get settled, and it took her to mid-night to get them quiet. 99% of the time Scout leadership is very excellent and Scouts are well behaved and...

We spent one night in a tree house -- and it was definitely a unique stay. We stayed there with our 2 kids, who also greatly enjoyed their time there. The property is beautiful, but is very hilly -- make sure you have SUV/Truck and preferably 4WD. We stayed in early July, and the cabins can get a little hot... More

Absolutely awful. Looked like a great location to hike to Harper's Ferry and Antietam, but the facilities were haphazardly set up on a knoll in the proprietor's front yard. No flat spots to pitch a tent -- between shrubs & weeds that aggravate allergies and provide a haven for orifice gnats. Surrounded by tweenage girls labor day weekend, quiet hours... More

It is very true our weeds were too high on that week end. Sorry, that was my over-sight due to a family medical emergency. This past week end we had a team of 5 weed whackers and brought it back to normal. So, thank you for your true and honest feed-back regarding that, we are open to that, and encourage... More

My husband and I stayed here on one of the tent sites. When we checked in, we were informed that the campground was nearly full, but we had no issues with noise. The location is great - the dense wooded area gave our site a very private feel while still being close to the office (and the bathrooms!). Driving in... More

Thanks for the feed-back. We have wood delivered once a week from a local saw mill. . It is mostly Oak, and a few pieces of Poplar for starting. Oak is very dense, and not the best starter wood, but burns a long time once you get it going. Poplar is light weight and good for starting. A little dampness... More
