Out trip to Harpers Ferry pretty much centered around flatwater tubing. After a night of thunderstorms and folks coming back with safety issues, ALL tubing was cancelled by the local companies. We brought our kids, 10, 11, and 12 and we were not going to buck the safety recommendations of the local facilities. We considered Harpers Ferry National Park for the day instead but it was HOT, real hot. In my family, heat + history = unhappy, whining children. The KOA was WONDERFUL for them They could not get enough of the jumping pillow. We were at the KOA for a Sat and Sun. They woke up Sunday and said " Do you think the jumping pillow is open yet?" They also had great activities scheduled and a nice pool. We, the adults, enjoyed a little bit of wine tasting. We were also pleasantly surprised that our cabin was air conditioned! The KOA sort of saved the day for us. Sunday, we woke up early and hit the national park but the kids would have preferred to hang at the KOA.
On the negative side, the place was packed. I agree with other reviewers that it could be noisy at night. We were fortunate that our direct neighbors were not noisy so it was fine. However, a couple of other sites would have been rough to be sleeping next to. Also, we don't have an RV but those sites looked especially close together.
As an aside, the kids working at the tie-dye and children's activities were very nice and helpful.
