Harpers Ferry Tent Sites

<Back
Experience the only waterfront camping in Harpers Ferry! River Riders campground offers a tent site to fit every need. Choose from river front sites, trailside and hike in island sites, cliff top, as well as deluxe tent sites which have electric and water.

Tent sites are meant only for tents. Popup campers or car camping would require an RV site. There is a handicap accessible bathhouse with 3 showers as well as a portable restroom trailer with running water.

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 our guests.

A 1.5 mile walking and biking trail leads directly to Harpers Ferry from the campground to the town of Harpers Ferry. Canoes, kayaks, paddleboards and bike rentals are available on site.

Give us a call at (304)-535-2663 for further details or to make a reservation.

Prices subject to change but general prices are listed below, call for current rates.
