Site was very shaded, and quite secluded. Camping pad was nice and level, although the driveway was slightly sloped. Nice amount of space in between sites. Very short walk to bath house. Campground was relatively empty our first night (Thurs), but filled up the next day. Still, heard hardly any noises from our neighbors. Camp hosts were very friendly, and came over to introduce themselves and go over park info shortly after we checked in.
Facilities/Overall Park: Bath house was centrally located. Pretty average as far as cleanliness goes, but everything worked, and the showers were hot. Great recycled tire playground, and awesome nature center w/ turtles and various birds of prey on site in the Manor Area. If you head over to the Houck Area of the park (about a 15-20 min drive), you'll find the lake, falls, and another campground. The Houck area definitely tends to be more crowded. I can't speak to the campground, but the lake is nice, and the falls are beautiful. The hike up wasn't too strenuous, either; my husband, dog, and 5-year-old handled it just fine. - Jenventola

Campground loops were at the top of a hill away from the rest of the park. sites were good sized with lots of woods behind most sites. High power line did run through nearby. Cell phone reception was good. Day use area at lake was free to campers, but parking filled up on holiday weekend and it was a long, steep hill to walk down to the lake and back. - direwolf2001

Well kept state park with a large campground. Electric loop is one of the older loops and sites are not all that level. We stayed in one of the H/C sites with electric in a tenting loop because access was easier. Each loop has a host site but only one of the five hosts was present. Campground is uphill from everything at the park and plan on driving down to the lake or trail heads. Within the park hiking available or just across the road to the larger Catoctin National Park with plentiful trails and rock outcroppings to visit. Lake has a couple of nice sand beaches and the falls were running due to recent rains. Park tends to get a lot of day use at the beaches but the campground is secluded and access restricted. Restrooms were clean and serviced daily. We camp here two to three times a season. - HR52

This is a beautiful retreat from busy city RV parks. More like a state campground than an independent, which is far better. Plenty of space between sites. Privacy guaranteed. Not sure why the one person complained about WiFi; if you're camping, that should not be a priority, and if that's what prevents you from returning to the park, you should probably just stay home; why travel out of your "comfort zone"? - TNorton

We only spent one night here and it was a long way from the highway--through the town of Chambersburg--not easy to get to! The owner was very accommodating and gave us our pick of pull through sites on a large treeless grassy field. (No sewer; 30 amp.) There was a creek and wooded area near our site. The wifi was awful and there was no cable TV. I doubt we'd return. - Lyn T

Very neat and well maintained. It is an events site. When you call, they say you do not need reservations other than for special events. We pulled in with no notice and they had lots of level spaces for our RV on a well mowed grassy field with choices of 50A or 30A sites with good water and it seems no Sewer hookups. Friendly manager. A great overnight stop just a few miles off the Interstate. - srfox

We camped here in February and there was only one other camper. It was quiet except for the faint noise from the highway. The sites are pretty big, and they have a fire pit, picnic table and a little bit of a workbench for some reason. We paid $18 through self registration when we arrived by using the provided envelopes. A Ranger checked in with us A few minutes later to see how everything was going. Lots of hiking trails here but not much else to do in the winter. We stayed at site 20 which was very close to the Porta John that we used since the bathroom facilities are closed during winter. - The Bees

I used this campground for a quick overnight stay. This campground recently reopened after a long closure following heavy storm damage, and unlike the other campground at Cunningham Falls, is open year round, but with limited winter service, no reservations taken, and a lower fee charged.
Roads are paved and in excellent condition, but are tight, as are most sites. Sites are gravel and mostly level, but many can be a challenge to get into, this is not a big rig friendly campground. Picnic table, fire ring and lantern post are provided. Sites are spaced well, some closer good for groups, but many are spacious and well apart from other sites. Power at my site showed reversed polarity on the 30amp, and the outlet itself was installed upside down. The 20amp was good. No water or sewer hookups, water is available from spigots throughout the campground.
Shower house was closed for the season, a portapot was provided, but I did not use it. Campground was very dark but there was a good deal of road noise from Rt15, which continues all night long, but this was not an issue inside the camper. I saw no staff, and the campground was otherwise empty. It proved to be a good place to overnight with my small travel trailer. - Cyclonic

We camped in the Manor area which allows pets. While the sites were relatively close to the road - short driveways - they were nice and fairly level with stone dust pads, fire rings, picnic table and lantern posts. I easily fit my Roo 23SS on the site and oitched a tent for my son and still had plenty of room. It was a short drive up to the Falls and lake area. Park people were friendly. - DaGrinch

Let me start by saying that the campground itself if beautiful and the staff was accommodating and friendly. However, there seems to be no "quiet time" even after midnight at this campground. We were tenting so we were more sensitive to the noise. There was a very vigorous volleyball game and loud party going on way past midnight. It was very hard to get any rest. Most campgrounds have a quiet time (11 pm or midnight). I realize it was a holiday, but it was excessively loud and made it hard to get any rest. I felt sorry for the people camping closer to the partiers.
The showers were difficult to use (had to pull a string to keep the water flowing) and also the tenting sites were not level. I would not return to this campground without a camper with thick walls!!! - Stacynpaul

I'm glad that we stayed in our small camper and didn't bring our 39-foot 5th wheel because the sites available to those who are not seasonal campers are small and unlevel, and tree branches are low. I watched one 5th wheel break a small branch off a tree. Be prepared to be out of service for outside communication. Cell service is very poor, and my phone's data service wasn't strong enough to pull in the Internet. The park has Wi-Fi for $3.95/day, but I was not able to connect. One of the seasonals told us that it doesn't work well. They do have cable TV. The speed limit is 5 MPH. Cars were going much faster than that. There's a trail that connects to the Western Maryland Trail about a mile away. Walk your bikes on it! It is full of ruts and rocks and is very muddy if there has been any rain. We took the road to the trail. However, it's a long hilly ride back up to the campground. The store is well stocked, but it is open only until 5. The staff is friendly. Be prepared to pay extra for miniature golf. (We weren't interested in playing it, just mentioning this FYI.) I don't know whether or not there is a charge for the pool. It was not open when were there. They were draining it, I guess for some sort of repair, and the water was running down the road. People there were friendly. It was okay to stay a couple nights so that we could ride our bikes on the trails in the area. However, I would not return. - bhg

Review on AllStays seemed nice so we booked an overnight stay on our trip. We were given alternate directions on phone because of low hanging trees on the GPS route. Thank goodness for that. Even with the improved directions we hit leaves and branches about seven times but no damage. The campground is in the middle of nowhere so would never use for an overnight again. When we arrived we were offered two spots to choose from. After a tight tour around the campground we went back to office as both were really not very level. The gentleman said to my wife, "Oh, you are in the ginormous rig." We are 35' feet, hardly ginormous in the motorhome world. He told her about a couple other sites, both of which were fine. We had a great night. Electrical (30 amp) was fine, water fine. Did not use sewer but hookup was convenient. The staff was quite nice though they should have warned about the lack of big rig facilities. Area was quite rural and very full with campers having a great time. Lots of four wheelers. Lots of families. Lots of long term residents. Several of the long termers had really improved their lots with decks and cookers and tables. If you are looking for a longer stay with a fifth wheel or a camper, this would really be nice - certainly a four or five. I could receive no Wi-Fi but did not ask about details. Bathrooms were older but pretty clean and adequate. We were really concerned about the noise from the carts and four Wheelers but by bedtime all was nice. Evening was quiet. There was even a wedding that day along with a reception. We walked by the area while to reception was going on and thought the music was a bit loud until we realized the door was open. When the door shut, we could barely hear it. I guess I have a bit of a problem with campgrounds that want to be everything to all people. They should have let us know about the tightness of the spots. Our slot was a pull-through but we had to back out to keep from running over short stumps. I guess that is why I chose a three instead of a four. We enjoyed the people and the place but the initial hassle was not worth it. - jubilee32

We stayed at this campground for an overnight stop on our way home. The campground is located in a forest, with paved roads and gravel sites. Sites are large, well separated, shaded, and private. RV/trailer sites have electric hook-up only. Water is available at a number of locations in the campground. OTA TV is limited, Verizon signal is good, and there is no WiFi. Restrooms and showers are clean and well maintained. There is no traffic noise. A dump station is located near the campground entrance. We would stay here again. - tnyankee

Nice State Park in Maryland! Pleasantly small camping area, with only 34 sites. It was an enjoyable 5 night stay! The weekend nights were busier, which apparently had the drive by female campground supervisor needing to check on every site very often. A few comments and suggestions were a little unnecessary. The weeknights were a bit better with the male drive by campground supervisor(s) simply driving by and waving! The camp host was convenient and helpful when needed for information. Pet friendly park and campground! Shower/Restroom facilities were well lit, clean and in easy access for all campsites! Beautiful shaded campsites! Each site has a large well built picnic table and fire ring with grill insert and 2 lamp posts which were quite handy! All roadways in very good condition! Lots of wildlife everywhere you look, helping to make our camping trip an enjoyable one! - patti&charlie

A great little campground. It is centrally located to many historic areas and Maryland State Parks. There is a small pond to fish in and trails to hike within the park. The only sad part was that the park host is leaving this year and she not only kept the entire park clean, but assured that it was safe and quiet. - electrician549

We stayed in their brand new pull through sites with concrete patio and hand laid stone fire pits and Adirondack furniture. The site was beautiful. But the site layout is too tight to pull through. Much easier to back in. Entry and exit from sites must be carefully planned because of narrow interior roads, tight turns, steep terrain, pot holes, untrimmed trees, and interior road layout. WiFi was super duper Uber slow. T-Mobile service was 1 bar. Rate above reflects fact that 3rd night is free. However dog charges and per person resort fees are still charged for 3rd night. - univmd

I selected this park because it was little more than an hour's drive to DC and the Smithsonian, and there are few decent campgrounds any closer. I generally choose to camp away from big cities. The staff was very helpful and friendly. However, Harpers Ferry KOA was a disappointment, especially given the resort pricing I had to endure. The campground itself, only slightly larger than the parking lot in front of the office, was basically a gravel hill, divided into tight, barely large enough sites, with such poor drainage that the week's spate of showers littered the grounds with perpetual puddles. The power supply for my site was poorly located, forcing me to use an extension cable. When I arrived, and when I left, the campground was mostly empty, except for a few units parked in a row apparently reserved for long-term campers. But that week bracketed Easter weekend, when the park was packed to the gills! There was so little room in the sites that campers plunked their play equipment down in the lanes, so that when I returned from errands, I had to wait on the site-holders to move the equipment out of my way. Clearly it's a popular park for weekenders and holiday campers, who can return home to brag about roughing it. But for a traveler like myself, who lives in his RV in constantly changing locations, this is not a park I will choose again. When I return to the Smithsonian, I will look elsewhere. - Jim Fulton

We booked two sites online for our favorite area of the campground that is wooded. When we checked in we were told that part of the campground is closed for the season so we were assigned sites in an open area with many other campers who were there for the Thanksgiving holiday. It was like a parking lot. Cable TV and wifi reception were poor. Rate shown reflects a "Buy 2, Get 1 Free" campground deal. We would have been even more disappointed if we paid the full rate for sites we didn't want. - ms5002h

Out of the way - 9 miles off I-81. Very quiet at this time of year. Friendly, small town privately owned park. Appear to be developing to family focused group camps. Converted farmland. - pwaygood

We were the only campers in this gem overnight stay. The campsites are in a huge grassy field with water and electricity hook-ups. Dump and dumpster at the entrance. We spent part of our evening under a covered patio type protection attached to a huge old (1800) barn, because of a tornado alert and then a thunderstorm alert. We were able to pull our Class B RV in under shelter in case of hail (there was none, but a huge rain).
The showers have plush carpets in front of the stalls. Spotless washrooms. And the campground is on a creek. - skidiver

This is a very hard campground to rate. It is very rustic and beautiful, however the interior roads are minimal and the majority of the sites are grass only, without any stone. We were concerned that we would not be able to get our motor home out without getting stuck if it rained. They have three full hookups sites that are basically in a circle with PVC pipe cobbled together to one sewer hole. On the up side, the water pressure was good and the 50 amp electric reliable. The owners were friendly and helpful. We were visiting friends who live in the area and this was the closest option near their home. Due to the size and weight of our 40 foot motor home, we would probably try another campground further away if visiting the area again. - D&K

Stayed in a popup camper on site 120. All gravel, site was VERY level. In the sun, backs up to a hiking trail so you do have visitors cutting through your site. Quiet area because there is no through traffic. It is in a culdesac.
Plenty of room in the park, even on Labor Day weekend. People were all pleasant and answered questions. They have wood available for $8.00 per 60lbs at the store. I would stay again. - ThePouncingCats

What a treat to find this only 2 hours from home. Our camp hosts were the BEST! Like meeting up with old friends. These are electric only sites, with dump and water in the loop. Paved roads. Beach, but no lifeguard. Paddle boats and canoes for rent. Not all loops allow dogs.
The Cowan's Park website itself has very detailed information about each of the sites, much more than what you find through Reserve America. We reserved our spot 3 days before we wanted to arrive and thought we would have a bad spot. Not so! The website said the parking pad was 15 feet wide, so I thought we would be on top of other campers. We were parked in the center of our pad, 3 slides and an awning were open, dog's x-pen set up (actually 2 pens hooked together), and we STILL had about 15 feet before the start of the neighbor's parking pad. Some of the sites in loop A were BAD - small, on the road, or had the water spigot in their site and would only be suitable (if at all) for a tent. But since those sites did not show up in my filtered search for an RV site, we didn't have those offered as optional ones to choose from. There is a close-by parking lot for 2nd vehicle parking.
There is a small fishing/boating lake to walk around - 1-1/2 miles around, but use caution if you have a large dog. There is a 25-foot metal bridge in one part that a dog cannot walk across. You could carry a small dog easily, and it is no problem for people, or even bikes, but dog feet - no way. No real way to describe it. My husband's bad back struggled to carry our 75-pound dog across. The next day we just back-tracked and did not walk the whole circle. - WMRamblers

We stayed for 2 nights during the week, and it was pretty chilly, so the park was sparsely filled. The area is absolutely beautiful. 6 miles off of the main road to the park entrance, and no cell service, so it is ideal to get away. The bathroom and shower facilities are top notch. Very clean, tiled, very nice. We stayed in the "B" Loop. Its sites are less close together, and fewer of them, so it is more private. Also, the entire B loop is dog friendly. We stayed in site 190. It was about as far from the bathroom as any site in the loop, but was across from the water spigot. There is a beautiful lake in the middle of the park. Canoes are available for rent or you can bring your own. - hmmmm
