A group of friends and I stayed at this campground. We booked an RV site because of the number of people and tents we had. We stayed at the first campsite when you enter into the campground. There was a very friendly guy who was in charge and helped us get settled in. The campsites are right by the river... More

I wish the person that organized this camping trip had read these reviews prior to our visit, but oh well! We learned the hard way that there is a VERY active railroad system very close to the "campground," which I quote because it feels more like we just pitched a tent on the side of a road. I will give... More

First time taking our family to an RV campground so can't compare to anything else. Staff were all very nice. Bathrooms were not very clean. River access was great. Loved the beautiful scenery. We stayed two nights. I didn't hear the train night one but heard it quite a bit the second night. Our kids loved exploring the creeks. The... More

My family and I stayed at the campground for 4 days. I found the campsite to be very nice, the river was wonderful and easy to access, The train is close but not 50 ft away and honestly after a while you don't even notice it. Also they tell you when you reserve that there is noise, so if you... More

Camped here for 2 nights and it wasnt a very restful stay. In fact, it was the most noisy campground I'd ever been to: freight trains coming through campground multiple times per hour, people on zip line passing by overhead, every car honking horns as they passed through the bridge underpass just outside the campground, and multiple large groups of...

The train noise is absolutely horrible. I will never stay at this campground ever again. This site is 20 feet away from 2 heavily used tracks that have freight trains pass by every 45 minutes or so. The sites are crowded and look very unnatural. I would be embarrassed for renting out sites with this much noise pollution. There is... More

if you are content with a very austere site, no wash facilities or anything else within a few miles and are content to sleep with earplugs then this is a good site, very close to the beautiful river. There must be better nearby without the noise and I can't believe this is the best in Harpers Ferry.

Located on a stretch of river right outside harper's ferry the Potomac and hills are lovely. There os a train track that is active close to the camping spots which can be noisy and affect sleep if you are a light sleeper. The accommodations are rustic, bare bones. This is camping, nothing more.
