Camping near Harpers Ferry, Md

Our son and DIL are hiking the Appalachian Trail this summer and we plan to hook up with them and her parents in Harpers Ferry Maryland. Other than the $75/night KOA, are there any rv parks or campgrounds that can accommodate a 40' fifth wheel.

I believe Harpers' Ferry is in West Virginia if that is the one to which you refer. According to rvparksreview.com "it is the only game in town and they know it". We plan on making it a day trip from Gettysburg.

You might want to try Candy Hill in Winchester, Va. Much better price and only about 40 minute drive away. Down rt340 to rt7 west and around the north end of town. Going around the south end means having to stop at the Camping World but it is just a little longer. The KOA will add extra charges for being a resort, $2 a day per dog etc.

We made a reservation at Candy Hill. It's a little farther than we wanted but I'm sure it will be more peaceful than the KOA on 4th of July. Thank you all for your input... it's appreciated.
Now, to find a reasonable place near Charlotte N.C. for the week that NASCAR has their all-star race.

Foe camping near Harpers Ferry I would try Greenbrier State Park, it's 21 miles away from Harpers Ferry. Maryland state parks are very nice.

And for camping at Charlotte there is camping right at the track. We have stayed outside the track by turn three.

Best of luck with your decisions.
