August 31st we had the pleasure of enjoying a really nice afternoon floating around the river and after calling several companies in the area we decided to go with Harpers Ferry Adventure Center.
Locating this place was a snap, it's right across the bridge and make a quick left and up over the hill to the complex. Parking was perfect and the layout of the complex was just as good.
We took 4 young guys with us serving in the military and will be getting deployed at the end of September, they had a blast ! I prepaid for the outing and just took my emailed receipt and it worked out very well.
After getting checked in and our wristbands they told us where to go and we went down to the tent and a gentleman explained the procedure, we got our PFD and TUBE and got loaded on the bus, they move you right along, you might have a few minute wait but no biggie, we played corn hole for a few monutes, when we got on th ebus our driver explained a few items and off we went, the drive up to the drop proint was nice and the scenary was nice as well. They got us to the point and off loaded us quickly and explained the rules and such, we all tied our tubes together and off we went, we hit some small rapids mixed with some calm water, plenty of large rocks to stop at and get out and chill ...... The end point was perfect and we opted to just walk back up the hill which was about a quick walk and we did the ride again, the 2nd time was better than the first .... Very quick loading and unloading ....
I would recommend this company .... I noticed they had nice crowds for the zip-lining as well, our next trip back down we will do the zip-lining ...... Looks like fun !
Very friendly staff, pricing was reasonable and what they offer is perfect !
** On A Side Note **
After our first float down the river, we went back to our truck to head down the hill to get something to eat and refill our cooler we made the mistake and stopped at this little roadside BBQ place, the food is below average and to charge $8.00 for a pulled pork sandwich was a complete ripoff, so please take our advise and find someplace else to eat ...
This has nothing to do with the Adventure Center ... I think the name of that roadside place was Catoctin Popcorn ... Horrible !!
