13 Parks near Harpers Ferry, West Virginia
Jun 2016 - $54.00
-close to Harpers Ferry National Park.
-roads leading to park easy to navigate.
-they give you free pancakes in the morning. Since we are gluten free, this wasn't worth it.
-$10 resort fee NOT mentioned when reserving by phone
-This is not a "resort" facility.
-This place charges for a pet - the first place this entire summer to do so.
-internal roadways are too narrow. We saw a trailer trying to get to their site and they literally couldn't make one of the turns.
-they give you a coupon book for discounts at their own facility. Why not just lower the price??
-one coupon was for fudge - buy a pound, get 1/2 pound free. Since we were visiting daughter the next day for a week, we figured we would get some fudge to have for dessert several nights while we saw her. Went to the "coffee shop" to purchase some. All they had was a 1/4 pound of raspberry fudge. When will it be available? "Whenever the person who makes it brings it in."
-sites are DIRT! Most places that charge more than $50 per night have grass, cement, level sites, etc.
-Did I Mention A $10 Resort Fee?? Your KOA discount doesn't apply to this. - Ms Winnie

Think twice about reserving here if you are a big rig. Sites are tight, road turns are sharp. We made it in our 40 foot with tow but had to back up several times to make a turn. For $78, I expect good paved roads and patios. Roads were semi-paved or gravel/dirt with many potholes and there were no concrete pads. Check-in area was big, paved and well marked. There just are not many choice in this area for big rigs. - mhollis1

Fees: mandatory resort fee of $10 a person. Since we didn't have kids, the only thing we got for our $10 was pancakes on Saturday. Your coffee, sausage, etc. was extra. They also charge another $3.00 per pet/per night fee. Don't know why or what that got us. The short road leading to the campground is good, and is right off the highway. Note that the access roads in the campground going to the pull-through sites is gravel and very narrow. The big 5th wheelers around us struggled to maneuver and park. Because the sites are short, anyone parking their tow car or truck hugged the road. Reservations staff sent all in our group in the wrong direction. Sites are VERY close to each other. The group next to us sat at their table and grilled only 3 feet from our sewer hook up, right outside my window. We had no problem neighbors, and the lively group of 4 families with many children across from us were respectful of the quiet time. We enjoyed watching the kids all running from one campsite to another and having fun. Had trouble with our TV connections and a call to the office resulted in 2 very nice gentlemen arriving within 5 minutes to show us what we were doing wrong (it was us, not the campground). Kids across from us loved the pool. There is a shaded pet park with some agility equipment in it and benches. The mini golf is there, too. The grounds and buildings seem to be well maintained and very clean. - WMRamblers

The 3/4 mile long dirt, pothole, muddy road to the park seemed much longer. The constant fear that an RV might come from the other direction made it worse. We knew there was no sewer but I was very dissatisfied to find the dump station is at the end of a dead-end road with no place to turn around with any decent sized rig. One night and out of here. We do have a 40ft fifth wheel and the "D" section pull-through was plenty long enough and did have 50 amp. With all the rain it was very mushy so I popped the truck in 4WD to make sure I didn't get stuck. Would not stay here again. - cwier

There are no sewer hookups at this campground. There is a single dump station. The campground's website boasts that it is a "full service" campground, and nowhere does it say that there are no sewer hookups. I found this deceptive.
It's reasonable value based on the area, but sky-high if you're a fulltimer with the ability to pick-and-choose your destinations. We stayed one week just because we wanted to see DC. I can't imagine staying here otherwise.
We had a hard time getting our 35' travel trailer into the most spacious site in the campground. - JPen365

Just spent 5 days at the Brunswick campground and had a wonderful experience. Very friendly and helpful staff, clean restrooms (newly painted) and right on the C&O Canal Bike Trail, which is why we were there anyway. PLUS they had dry wood for campfires and they'll even deliver to your site.
Are trains running close by? Yes! Didn't bother our party of three a bit. We stayed in a pop-up and had water and electric for about $45/night. Reasonable for the area!
Will we return? Absolutely!!! - JeffKruzic
Jun 2016 - $35.00
This is a no frills campground. The sites are reasonably level and have water, electric, and sewer hook-ups. The water pressure is it great. There is no bathhouse... No toilets or showers. Most sites do not have a picnic table. There are no trees/shade near the sites. The campground is located just off a main highway, so there is some road noise, but it's not too bad. Overall, the campground is reasonably clean and well kept, but there are some junky areas. For the price, this campground isn't bad, but don't expect much more than a place to park & hookup. - wanderfilledlife

This is a very utilitarian campground. The owner (a former UK citizen) inherited the farm from her grandfather and turned it into a campground. Campsites are very spacious. Hookups (30 amp, water, and sewer) worked well although the water pressure was very low. There is no wifi and cell phone didn't work in the site either. There are no amenities here. This site is convenient to all the major attractions in the area. - Melodycthomas

To me this is almost the perfect campground. It's no frills sites on grass with full hookup. I'd have rated it higher, but the water pressure is poor. I used my on board tank and water pump while staying there. It's location is great - close to Martinsburg, Antietim Battlefield, Manassas Battlefield, Harper's Ferry, Shephardstown and an easy day trip to Gettysburg. Easy access to I-81. I'd certainly return if in the area again. - 15243

We were the only vehicle being used. There were a number of abandoned trailers. The swimming at the river was closed and is a hike away from the park. The advertised "museum" is run down and with unused equipment around. The caretaker was helpful. Would not recommend. - User2759

Stayed here one night again, as it is about halfway on our annual NC to NY pilgrimage. Went with a 30/50/W/S/E this time. Site was nice and level, with easy in and out. Love the easy access from I-81, friendly helpful staff, large store ,and propane. We should probably try other campsites in the area, but why fix something that isn't broken. - BounderPounder

We stayed for two nights because it was close to Fort Frederick, Maryland, which is why we were in the area. Easy on/off from I-81. We were given site #47, which does not get Internet service at all. This may be due to the self-storage building between us and the office. We were in a different location than most of the campsites and it is really just a gravel parking lot. Our site did not have a fire barrel but since we were in a parking lot atmosphere, I did not want to sit outside.
The staff were excellent and they loaned us a Comcast box, which is the only way you can use their cable hookup. It appears that many of the campers live here permanently but that was not a problem.
My husband used the restroom and said it was clean and looked updated.
A word to the wise - there is no Verizon cell service in this whole area. AT&T does work but that didn't help us. Not the campground's fault but something to consider if wanting to stay here.
I would not stay here again. I thought the price was too high for what we got. We paid the same as those down below who did receive Internet service. - CraftCrazy

Great for easy on, easy off for a night. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Would not stay again unless I needed a place to sleep for a night. - 4950

Great state owned campgrouond. Easy to get to from the Interstate.
We stayed in Cedar Loop which is the only loop with electric.
All back in sites. No water hook ups, no over the air TV.
The best part about camping here were the campground's hosts who were parked next to us.
They quickly solved an issue with another camper who was in our assigned site. Then they helped us with good suggestions on avoiding the beltway around Washington, DC. Lastly, they came over with freshly baked banana chocolate chip muffins!
We would definitely stay here again. - thetravelkids

There are two areas: a day use lake, picnic area and a camping area. The camping area has 4 loops, only one loop has power (Cedar Loop), this loop is the best geared to RV camping, a big portion of the other loops are for small units and tents. This is not a big rig friendly park. Few sites will accept big rigs. It is clean and well run. Cell service is good TV antenna service is fair. Satellite service is spotty, hour in the mountains. Overall a nice park. We were hosts here for 3 months; hosts have full hookups. We were in a 42' rig. - rmckee

Talk about camping in the wild! This park is literally in the middle of nowhere. No Wi-Fi, no cable, no water, no sewer...just electricity.
Still it was a pleasant change of pace and very quiet. - dhaney1944

Great place. Extensive recreation team to keep everyone busy, as there should be for the price. Some issues: many of the sites are not level at all. Grass not cut for two weeks on preferred spot. For the money, would expect a bit more effort for site upkeep. Overall, great place. Granddaughter loves it. - Pirate

It's a decent park, but it's really expensive and not really near anything. Not the river, not the battlefields, no mountains. nothing really. The only exception is the C&O canal but you have to bike about 3-5 miles to get on. I grew up in this area and to visit friends and family we stay here, usually in the off season when things quiet down and it's cheaper. No way you get me to pay $100 a night in a CG in Williamsport MD. Ok, all that said, it's a nice campground and well maintained. The staff are pretty friendly although when I had to get LP once I had to actually do it for the fella cuz he had no idea what he was doing. If you don't mind crowds and a very expensive park but have young ones that enjoy the water park and other kiddie stuff then it's a nice place to stay. They must be doing something right because they are booked solid in the summer. However it's really the only game in town. - Way2Roll

We stayed off season when pool slides were closed and still price was outrageous. Site is very very narrow and unable to have fire as other camper right there. The sites are in a big field with no trees or anything. The entrance was awful for a big rig with narrow drive, and low trees. Overpriced and will not stay here again. We usually would stay on our way to Florida from NY, but there is no value at this price for really nothing open on site. - BOBDEB01

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

The river was beautiful. Mike was great. Staff was friendly. The tubing was AWESOME. The campsites were the biggest I've ever seen. Nice, wide, more than enough room. We arrived on a Thursday and left on Sunday and also had some tent people meeting us there. For us, the stay was nice. For the tent people not so great due to the bath houses being completely disgusting. You also have to bring quarters with you to use the showers which the website doesn't disclose. A certain nationality of people showed up Friday night, by the hundreds. Things went downhill from there. They were loud, dirty and I think the bath house situation was because of them. They played loud music, left their trash everywhere, sped through the campground. Border patrol was all over the place and cops frequented the campsite over the weekend. On Sunday, they all packed up and left. They left garbage EVERYWHERE. I felt so bad for the owners to have to clean up such a mess. This is such a beautiful place to camp. I hope the owners can figure out a way to deter the illegals (I'm assuming illegal with so much border patrol officers around). - Leslie C.

Don't trust these people, this used to be a great campground that our group stayed at for several years in a row. USED to be friendly and worked well with us. We always came with a group of 20-100 people. Then things started going downhill. A bad element of people started coming in, in spite of complaints by us for a couple of years in a row of campers from other sites/groups coming into our reserved areas disrupting our functions and items coming up missing nothing was done by management to curb it. Although management lives right across the road, once they are gone for the day that's it, you're on your own. The last straw was when we made our usual reservation at our usual group rate, something happened and the lady that used to handle our reservations was no longer there. ONE WEEK prior to our event we were told that neither the space we had reserved nor the rate we were promised would be honored. They doubled the price, we did get our space back, but not without a lot of hassle. This same thing happened to another sister group earlier. We won't be back. - luvmyhp
Oct 2008 - $30.00
I read the reviews here, and decided to take a chance. Here's what we found: This park is relatively far from a main route. Getting there requires navigating a windy, hilly road for a few miles from RT 340. We had no trouble, but this campground is not close enough to I-81 to be useful to folks moving through. We arrived after dark to find the gate manned. We paid and were told to pick a site. Because it was dark, it was very hard to see where the sites were. Even during the day, it is hard to see where the sites are. Some of the marked sites have broken electric. We set up and found it was difficult to level the RV, given the sloping nature of the grass. If you plan on staying here, you should know that the sites along the river are nice, but lack electricity and tend to attract noisy groups. There was no effort to quiet down the loud music on Friday night. Bottom Line: This is a chill-out park that would be great for a few days in an RV. This is not the best park for thru-travelers due to the distance from the main roads. There are no facilities other than a dump station and water/electric. - outsid4evr

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

Not close to the highway and only 3 sites had sewer. No 50 amp service (30 amp only). However, clean restrooms and showers, nice views and beautiful property. Would have loved to do more than an overnight. Would stay here again - next time for a couple of days. - bbnh2000
