Harpers Ferry KOA

We are at Harpers Ferry KOA for the weekend. Perhaps the most expensive fee I ever paid but we feel it is well worth the money. There are soooo many activities for the kids. We brought our grandson but unfortunately he got sick so he isn't getting to participate. As I write this, we are awaiting the trick or treaters. Scoped out all the spaces and know where we want to camp next year. Awesome weekend.

We are wanting to do the DC area to see the Vietnam Wall and other memorials next year. Were you close enough to do day trips to DC and what were the rates.

Harpers Ferry KOA is really a nice place but I believe way to far out for DC touring. I live about 45 min west of DC (depending on traffic) and Harpers Ferry is about and 1.25 hours further north west so I would guess about 2 hours with no or little traffic...good luck on that one. Here is there web site: Harpers Ferry | Campground | Washington DC | Civil War Battlefields. The cost was over $60 per night which is ok if you have young children with you. I would use the KOA to visit other Civil War sites like Antitam. Another option is where I store my camper...Bull Run Regional Park. Not a lot of activities but good camping and about 45 min from DC. Here is their web site: Bull Run - Camping Fees As you will see, their rates are a little better. Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

I felt the same way but we took our grandson to the spooks ulnar, not knowing what to expect. They had constant activities for the kids. It was really well done. If viewed as a mini vacation it was well worth it. We are planning on going again next October.

Hi Mustang,

If you want to go to Dc to see the sights then I would recommend Cherry Hill Rv Park which is right off I-95. They also have shuttles into DC and is the closest campground to DC.

Enjoy!

We went to the Harpers Ferry KOA when the kids were younger. I remember they had an indoor basketball court where the kids played for hours. So no fears about entertaining the kids when the weather is bad!

We were also able to ride our bikes to the Harpers Ferry bus terminal and take the shuttle into the town.
