“literally 50 feet from the railway, chemical toilets”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

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.
