For k$34 for a riverside barebones (fire ring, table, shade trees) this place was quite enjoyable. An active train track nearby was basically "white noise" (nobody in our party was annoyed by it, but then we are all accustomed to "sounds that go "bump" in the nite". We could see the C&O canal towpath across the river from our campsite,... More

Very pretty, on the river. Activities are close by if you want to take advantage of those. A train goes through at least once a night and it's loud. The bathrooms are the worst I've ever endured. I have to say, I'm one who will create both positive as well as negative posts. I don't like to harp on the... More

I was nervous about our trip to Harper's Ferry campground after reading the bad reviews here. To say the least, the train noise is very bad. It's loud and when you're in a tent at night, it feels like you are about to be run over by the approaching train. We took our dog with us and she was startled... More

This campground is horrendous. Save yourselves and do not stay here. In order of "most likely to ruin your trip", the reasons are: 1. Freight train: The campground is about 70 feet wide, from riverbank to steep hill. 30 feet up the steep hill (right over your heads) is an active, 24-hour freight train track. The train starts blowing its... More

While it is a pretty site (next to the river), I would never stay here again. The trains going by the site (literally right next to the grounds) multiple times per hour and throughout the night made for a horrible night sleep, even with earplugs. Given how much they charge for the site ($37 for three adults!!), one would expect... More

Wow! Great place to camp! Views are fantastic right on the water. They have a campground manager named Petey who made our trip. He meets and greets everyone there and makes sure everyone is happy and has what they need. If you have a big rig you do have to go around a 11 foot bridge which adds a few... More

Wow, we pulled in with our brand new camper late on Friday evening. Petey was there to help us and offer guidance and advice. There was a mix up with electric service and Petey along with River Riders made things right. There was noise but after the 1st night we all were used to it. Petey and his wife were... More

The campground is right on the river and the views and river access is amazing!! The caretaker Petey was the nicest and most engaged caretaker I've ever experienced. From check in to when we left he was always available and went above and beyond what you would expect, he definitely made the trip easier. The bike riding is also great... More

Decided to camp at River Riders, river front camp sites for my birthday for two days. We ended up staying a extra four days because this place is awesome. The sites are located right on the Potomac river, some with small piers, 1 ramp to launch from. So much to do tubing, fishing, kayaking, biking, white water rafting, zip lines.... More
