Campground Amenities and Facilities



We have electric and water hook-ups at all of our RV sites. In order to get our water to the sites, however, it is under pressure. The pressure to the RV sites is up to 70 psi which may exceed manufacturer recommendations for pressure to your unit. We recommend a pressure regulator!

  • All RV sites are back-in.
  • We have no pull-through sites.
  • Sites 30 - 35 have 20 and 30 amp hook ups.
  • Sites 20, 21, 22, 25, 26 and 29 have 20, 30, and 50 amp hook ups.

The campground office is located at River Riders' main base. We offer snacks, firewood, bug spray, and other common campground needs.

Lovely surroundings make for a perfect place to unwind with a swim or a snooze under the sun. We have shady waterfront sites. Some sites have concrete patios and feature fire rings.

In addition to the boat ramp, you can tie your boat off at your site. River Riders offers rafting, tubing, kayaking, canoeing, and biking trips.

The campground is in a beautiful / unique location. Because of that it is a mixed use site. The last zipline in the Harpers Ferry Canopy Tour passes over some of the Cabin/ RV / Deluxe Tent sites. The boat launch is used by River Riders to drop off some of their guests. There are train tracks up the hill behind the campground and a tunnel nearby where you may hear horn honking at some of the sites, so if you're a light sleeper, it will help to bring ear plugs for the occasional trains at night.Our RV sites are back-in only, we do not have any pull-through sites.

Please park your car in your designated parking location and not on the public gravel road nearby. 1 parking space is available per site.


Check-in begins at 3 pm at our campground. Our office hours vary from day to day, so if you will be checking in after we close, then you will check in at the Clarion Hotel.

The above address is to River Riders and to the Clarion Hotel. We do not recommend searching our campground location on google, as it typically will not take you to our campground. It may also try to take you through a tunnel that only has 10' of clearance, which is very hazardous for guests with RVs.
