General Campground Information

Pet Policy

Some visitors enjoy sharing the pleasures of camping with their dogs or cats. To ensure that all guests have a safe and enjoyable experience, KOA has established some guidelines. Before You Go: Call ahead. Check with the campground about its specific pet policies. Some don't allow pets in Cabins, for example, or may have limited pet units. Others don't accept particular breeds that insurance providers have identified as having a history of aggression. Bring your helper. Service dogs are welcomed at all KOA Kampgrounds (Leash and aggressive behavior rules apply).  When You Arrive: Good behavior is required. Dogs of any breed that are hostile or aggressive will be asked to leave the campground, along with their owners. Bring the leash - dogs must be kept on leashes no longer than 6 feet when outside their owners' vehicles or rental units. Do not leave a tethered dog unattended. Remember manners - constant barking bothers other campers. If your pet is too vocal, you'll need to find other accommodations. Harpers Ferry KOA adheres to KOA's national pet policy. In addition, Doberman, Rottweiler, Pit Bull breeds including (APBT, AST, and SBT), and mixes thereof are not permitted at the Harpers Ferry KOA.
