14 Parks near Harpers Ferry, West Virginia
Nov 2016 - $18.00
The park is very nice, with nice people and the sites are wide.
I liked the store.
The only reason I don't give it a 10 is the park needs some work The electric boxes need to be painted and also straightened up. The cabins (so I call them) have alaskan roof material which is a tarp. Some of the sites need leveling. For the cable tv they ran wire all over the top of the ground. I would stay there again. - excel14

An older KOA, it's in need of site improvements. Some are OK, some are terrible. We had a three night stay in a nearly empty park and was assigned a lousy site when there when numerous sites in better condition available. The site was not level from front to rear and side to side. Dirt was the main site surface and gravel had not been added in a very long time. Mature trees also had exposed roots throughout many sites making walking difficult. Ask to see your site BEFORE accepting. - Finder9

Book 2 nights get 3rd night free deal by calling on phone only. Rate can be tricky because they have so many fees for people and dogs, and rates/deals by phone are different than online, some rates do not allow KOA discount. Every person and every dog wears a paid paper band. Our site was level but most sites are unlevel and almost impossible to get to for big rigs. Do not try to pull through our site, even though pull through site, it is much easier to back in. Do not arrive at night, interior roads super hard and unlevel to navigate. Wifi actually worked most of the time, speed was good, it took awhile for iPad to lock onto signal though. Att wireless signal 1 or 2 bars. Trash in fire pits and on campsites. Pay $20 extra to pick site, bundle of wood, and elastic picnic table cover. Otherwise they pick your site number. - univmd

The road to the campground is narrow as everyone has said. The sites are on grass, very little shade. Some are pull through & some are back ins. The utility pole is far but if we pulled up, we'd be too close to the road. The road inside campground is very bumpy. Only one bathhouse, not convenient for everyone. Port a potties around though. The sites are long but neighbors are close by. Fire rings & picnic table. Playground & volleyball net. Hiking, biking trails. OTA TV local channels. Dump site use inconvenient. - jcpjane

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

My review is not with staying here as due to a family emergency I was unable to. This is about the excellent customer support that they provided. We had made the reservation about 5 PM the evening before. At about 10 PM we found about the family emergency that had us change our plans. Even though they have a no cancellation policy that is say more than 24 hours, they fully refunded our complete amount. This is customer service at it's best. I will be back through this area again and will stay with them every chance I get. - Jack&Wanda

If you want playgrounds and swimming pools, this is not the place. If you are looking for a great spot to call "base" and use your time visiting the many historic places nearby, then this is a fine campground. Great freeway access, close to level spots, plenty of room to move around, not stacked with your neighbors slide-out almost touching your patio awning. Plenty of shopping nearby. restaurants, Harpers Ferry, even a casino. Good water, electric, and sewer. Just no "amusements". - scooterrooter

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

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

Really nice campground and we liked it that we could bring our doggy. The WiFi was decent and the site was good. Only reason I gave an 8 instead of 10 was there is no place to dump! only 20 sites out of 50 or so have sewage. Ours did not. We stayed two nights. - ClassA_DANandMARIE

If this park had sewer on more sites or even a dump station, I would give it a better rating. However, we were happy here and the office people were very helpful. We stayed here 3 nights and were very comfortable...just no place to dump. The sites are set up different than any other park, but we were near a small creek and felt lucky to have the site we did. BTW, the restrooms were very clean. And there is a well equipped RV store on the premises.
People advised that you can't turn left to get on I-81 when you leave, but turn right and it's only 2 miles down to I-81 south (or north). - Ginny H

Gravel roads & sites in a treed gully. Sites are very close together with no privacy and most sites won't allow satellite reception. Had good wifi with full hookups but no cable. Friendly management gave directions to a free boat launch on the Potomac. Close to I-81 good for an overnight stop. - Appleknocker

Site was partially shaded, more private than many others in the loop, but still not very secluded. Nice and level. Hardly any space between sites. Definitely the tightest MD state park we've camped at by far. Luckily, we were there during the week, so it was not crowded at all, and reasonably quiet. Had we been there on a weekend, I can only imagine that the crowds and noise would have driven me crazy.
Facilities/Overall Park: Bath house was fine; very average as far as bugs and cleanliness. Only 2 or 3 shower stalls, IIRC; never a wait while we were there, but I imagine the lines are long on weekends. There was a relatively easy hiking trail from the campground down around the lake, with some nice, quiet little spots for fishing. To get to the sandy beach area of the lake, we drove, since we had 3 kids and a ton of crap to transport. The lake area is very nice, with tons of picnic spots in the shade. However, every single picnic table was in use, and the beach was pretty crowded, and we were there on a Wednesday! I can only imagine how packed it would be on a weekend. Despite the moderate crowds, we really enjoyed ourselves, and I think I liked it even better than the lake area at Cunningham Falls. - Jenventola

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. - fulltime5er

This is a family destination park with many activities. We just used it as an overnight stop. We were in the 200's, and the front of the rig was a bit low, but easy enough to level. I do think the 700's are leveler. That said, both 200 and 700 are satisfactory. Wifi was not usable in 205. Wifi might be better in the 700. 3 bar Verizon signal. FHU are in a good position. We had a preferred site with a bit more room. End sites have the most room. If you want a better site you can reserve on line, but they hit you with a fee for reserving a particular site rather than a type of site. We were here at the end of the season, and the pool and stores were closed. Propane fill was tight to get near. I think there may be a two night minimum during the high season, but on the shoulder seasons it makes for a good one night stop. - wtravlr1

Kind of expensive for Hagerstown. We paid extra $10 to pick site & $25 to checkout late 6pm. The 700's sites are more level than the 200's. Visually sites look level, but when parked, front is lower than rear. Front tires almost off ground. Sites are not level, but at least they are as flat as can be for the land. Laser tag $5 day, $10 night. Zip line similar charge. Water slides free. Clean resort. Nice pool and playground and activities, store, and restaurant. Not much to do in Hagerstown outside resort. - univmd

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

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
