Campground Reviews

Jul 30, 2013
I couldn't be happier with our recent trip to the KOA in Harpers Ferry! The online reservation and check-in process was a breeze. The facilities were clean and the staff was extremely helpful. The campground was a little crowded but we had our own space and our neighbors were very friendly. Definitely coming back again!

Had a wonderful time and enjoyed all Harpers Ferry KOA had to offer Would recommend this campground to all of our camping friends

There seemed to be a lot of things for the kids to do. The store had a lot of cool things in addition to camping supplies. Main complaint: sites were too close together. We barely fit with the camper & we barely had enough room to be outside. Definitely too many people.

This is great place to stay with children. They have activities for them every 2 hours.

Branding is excellent, employees all wear yellow, super friendly. Our site was level. But many sites with the big rig premium patios were super sloped, needs to be fixed.

Overall we enjoyed our stay. Some facilities are ready for an update.

The site I was given was sloped downward at a bad angle with no good place for a tent on the grass. It was only 15' from the giant dumpsters that were piled so high the lids couldn't be closed. It smelled and attracted skunks and other critters at night. Nothing against the staff, but the site I had should be retired from active duty.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry that you were unhappy with your site. On most weekends we have tent sites available, the front desk will gladly assist you in finding one that works for you.

We had a group of 3 rv's and 4 cabins reserved since the end of February. One couple was told that they had no reservation. They had not brought any paper work with them to show otherwise. The KOA clerk was quite snippy with them. Told them the only available cabin was one which slept 8 people. They were forced to take it at a higher rate. This is just wrong! They will take it up with KOA.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry that you had a poor experience. A reservation deposit is required to make any reservation and an email confirmation will be sent. Unfortunately, we only had an 8 person cabin available for your reservation on that particular weekend.

The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. When the campers next to us departed they left a huge mess in their site and the staff responded quickly to clean up the garbage. We appreciated the multiple age appropriate ammenities for our children (ie: playground, bounce pillow, pool etc). It would be great to see a no smoking policy especially on the playground and all group areas.

We had a great time at Harper's Ferry KOA. The staff - wonderful! The Summershine staff were the best group of young adults - very friendly & helppful. Looking forward to our stay there in October!!! Only problem-too many day visitors. It made the pool area very crowded.

Friendly staff, good pancake breakfast.

As usual, this is a nice place with plenty of activities for the youngest up to young teens. The theme weekends are fun.

The stay was very nice, workers are the best. I do think the price is a bit much. You shouldn't have to pay an additional price for your 2 children. Base price of the spot should include at least a family of 4.

We stay there a lot and have recommended and have brought groups. I think there should be a discount or some perk for those who organize groups there or recommend. Just a suggestion.

Nice Place.
Jul 29, 2013
We love it, lots to do, clean, I would suggest updating the grass playing areas on the mini golf, they are pretty torn up.
Jul 29, 2013
We love going to KOA in Harpers Ferry. We live 45 minutes away, and love going there and relaxing.
Jul 29, 2013
This was our 2nd time here. Had a great time. Lot 163 was great for our size trailer. Mini golf needs repairs but was still fun.
Jul 29, 2013
Great location. Family friendly. Some tent sites need more dirt or grass - lots of rocks and roots. A few things missing or broken : horseshoes, ladder ball. Very friendly staff - made a difference in our stay. Thanks.
Jul 29, 2013
Excellent campground!! Thanks.
Jul 29, 2013
Staff is always friendly and available. I come her a few times a year, we love this place!
Jul 29, 2013
I go to this KOA several times a year, we always use a KOA when we travel but this one is close to home and is our go to when we want to camp, we love it! The only thing that changed is they stopped keeping the store open 24 hrs on weekends, which was a life saver sometimes, but that is not a deal breaker!

This kampground had the facilities to be one of the best KOAs, but one hardworking cleaning lady was not enought to maintain the bathroom facilities, and a lazy, condescending manager paired with blase employees who only humored us when we vocalized our complaints soured our visit.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our cleaning staff works very hard to keep up with our very busy weekends. We are sorry that you felt like you were not heard. We work diligently to respond to all campers in a timely fashion.

The tent sites are not very well layed out or maintained. The first site I was assigned did not have a level area to pitch a tent. There was no grass. The surface was covered with rock fragments. Bottom line...the sites need to have tent pads constructed. They also need garbage recepticles.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have both primitive and deluxe tent sites at the Harpers Ferry KOA. Most of our deluxe sites have a tent pad along with water and electric hookups. Our primitive sites are more remote and rustic.

It was a very busy weekend and lots to do. I have always made reservations before and received VIK, but this year we didn't get any firewood or table cloth. I asked at the front desk but kid working there really couldn't help.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our VIK program allows for campers to guarantee a specific site, utilize express check-in, they also receive a bundle of wood and a table cloth. There is a $20 fee for this service and must be requested at the time of reservation.

The first 2 times we had a very bad time because our sites were extremely small. This time we decided to give it 1 more shot and we booked a large site in a wooded area. I received a phone call from KAO saying they wanted to put us in a delux site. When we got there of course there was no record of KOA calling me and they put us in site 96. not the site we were expecting. Not large like we booked

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Site 96 is a Water and Electric site designed for larger RV's up to 50 feet. We recommend making reservations at least a few weeks in advance for optimum site choice. Also, making reservations online does not allow for specific site requests, it is best to call the campground directly.

We booked our stay early in the year and booked 4 cabins. And 3ttailor sites all together as we are a group of 30. When we arrived we were given (no choice) a cabin for 8 (we are 2) . Woman who checked was very nasty and it was a "take it or leave it) attitude. Others were also scattered around the facility. We do this every year and have never had this experience. Won't be back there for sure.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry that you had a poor experience. A reservation deposit is required to make any reservation and an email confirmation will be sent. Unfortunately, we only had an 8 person cabin available for your reservation on that particular weekend.

Facility was good. Campsite was not the best as there was no adjacent parking.

It was very nice. Really enjoyed our stay. Lot to do there & plan on going back to stay in a cabin.
Jul 28, 2013
Staff was very helpful and attentive. The 4 person cabins with bathrooms were clean and neat. Loved the activities for families. Great location.
Jul 28, 2013
The quiet hours were not enforced and it was very noisy between 10-12pm.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our night patrol is available all evening to enforce the quiet hours. We are sorry that other campers disrupted your stay.
Jul 27, 2013
The arrangement is perfect for our family.The amenities (showers grills, picnic tables, pool, moon bounce, mini-golf, pancake breakfast, store, staff, etc.) are great. We feel welcomed & safe in this rustic, attractive, well-maintained campground-with-cabins.
Jul 27, 2013
Stayed for six weeks. Only weak area was losing the WiFi after a rain, but office responded quickly to reset.
Jul 27, 2013
Well kept sites and property. Surprised that there were no bugs after a couple of nights loaded with mosquitos elsewhere. Pleased to meet Mr. Bergeron, I know he must have played hockey...lol.
Jul 27, 2013
My entire family had a great time. We enjoyed the warm, clean swimming pool. My youngest child (7) enjoyed the bounce pillow. I liked that they had full time supervision there. The staff member on duty kept a watchful eye on everyone. It ran a lot smoother having that member there. Both the kids (7 & 12) enjoyed all the planned activities. This is one of our top choice campgrounds.
Jul 27, 2013
Great campground.
