River Riders - Family Adventure Resort

Outdoor Adventures near Washington DC

Live in Washington DC and love the outdoors? Love sharing memories while doing some wicked fun outdoor activities? You have found the right place!

River Riders Inc. in Harpers Ferry, WV, located just an hour away from Washington DC, has fun-filled activities for all to enjoy. We offer a variety of water activities, such as white water rafting, tubing, kayaking, canoeing, and fishing adventures on the beautiful Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers. The Shenandoah is always a great option for beginner to intermediate paddlers, while the Potomac River is for the experienced rafters.

We also have great activities to do outside of the water. Our canopy tour/zip lining, aerial forest adventure parks, mountain biking, and hiking trails are perfect for land lovers. During the 2-3 hour guided Canopy Tour thrill ride, you'll fly high above the ground and next to the river along 8 zip lines from 200 to almost 800 feet in length, along with some belayed ladder climbs and a 25 foot free fall.

Just in case you don’t feel like driving back to Washington, DC after your Harpers Ferry rafting adventure, we also provide lodging options, from our campgrounds, cabins and vacation rentals. Enjoy the outside fully with our campground experience, or relax and unwind in one of our comfortable vacation home bedrooms.

As your family adventure resort, we provide the opportunity to have remarkable experiences in nature with your family and friends within a short drive from DC. We are open all year round, so you can always enjoy a relaxing getaway.
