Tent Reviews

Jul 11, 2020
Setup for tent camping was very, very disappointing. Over $40 for a rocky sloping pitch, with a tree sap-covered picnic table. Terrible value.

Very small tent spaces, really small, the ground uneven, full of rocks, not flat- hard to find an area where to put your tent and not feel that you sleep an a slope. The bathrooms were mediocre, not clean, old, rusty and moldy. For a private camp X3 more expensive than state parks camping , the amenities were x3 worse. Go comping in a state park.

I was very disappointed with our stay here especially for a KOA assoc. All staff I encountered outside the office staff were unpleasant. The bath house was horrendous. For a time where cleanliness should be increased H F KOA failed. There is no way the bathhouse were cleaned PROPERLY daily. There was feces on women’s bathroom walls for days. There were ants and mildew the shower stalls.

I don’t like the fact that you guys forced me to reserved three night when I only needed to stay two. That is very abusive. And of course since I needed I had to do it.

We always enjoy visiting your campground, and hope to visit again in summer after the dog days of summer pass. Keep up the good work, Gary Bernhard

Giving the constraints placed on you You did a good job working with the campers I was pleased with how everything went

Most of the stay was great. We enjoyed having the pool available to cool off in, but we were disappointed that a ticketing system was activated for July 4th that we were not aware of until we walked up to the pool and learned that we could not go to the pool because we didn't have tickets. This is something that should have been shared with us at arrival or at least the day before.

Campground mid week was very empty - quiet - kids enjoyed mini golf and peddle bikes. Temperature check upon entering the pool area which I appreciated - no chairs and they’ve taped off 6x6ft blocks where people can cop a squat. Water in the pool was refreshing however the water was cloudy and the pool is in need of a PH check / shock. Great proximity to old Harpers Ferry. Clean campground.

I wish the use of face masks in the store and restrooms was more heavily encouraged/enforced. If the staff were practicing mask use it would encourage more from others. The comfort station needs some basic maintenance - sink faucets need tightened, aerators need replaced. Overall it was pretty great! Thanks!

The campsite was clean and my family had a great time.

What we like: Friendly workers; wide selection of amenities What we don't like: Camping sites bare way too close to each others and boundaries are not well defined. tent sites are not leveled for setting up tents and tables. Young campers making noise until 2:30a.

The tent sites are all on a hill except for a few. Personnel running the registration are rude and uninviting, with the exception of the manager. Social distancing signs were available, but besides that, no one would ever know there is still a global pandemic occurring. I will not be tent camping at this location ever again.

My second time staying at a tent campsite here. Amenities are great, but I was disappointed the free pancakes had been discontinued. It was pretty crowded and despite signs about social distancing and mask-wearing, a lot of fellow guests were not complying. Also, the group at the tent site next to ours was parting and making noise until 3am.

Very nice facility and people running the KOA. COVID-19 had most of the activities and breakfast closed ;(... But the pool was open so we were happy! I was a little disappointed that the lot was not sand like it was advertised, but it was better than all gravel.

Great place to take your family

It was really great for the most part , the tent sites seemed a little disorganized and close to each other though

I had a great time! Bathrooms were clean and staff was friendly and helpful! Loved my tent site :)
Jun 29, 2020
Overall my stay was wonderful. Here's what wasn't -being told pool was open until 10, but only open until 8. - quiet hours not being enforced - registration desk doesn't answer phone - wine/coffee shop has conflicting prices. Otherwise, everything was good. Wish the website would've told you certain things were closed due to COVID. But had a wonderful time!

Staff was very nice, friendly, and helpful. Restrooms were clean and kept stock. The reason why we will most likely not return is due to the overcrowded tent sites. We were stacked up on top of our neighbors with no personal space. Also, our tent site was on a hill, making the experience quite unenjoyable.

We reserved a tent site for 2weeks(the reason we chose your campgrounds)We had to move out of our house and was transitioning,so we were without a home.we checked in,due to Covid 19, we were told we could only stay for 1 week.the evening staff was very pleasant and tried to accommodate. Daytime staff was rude,demanded we leave.We left 3 days early.We were charged for amenities,they were not open.

Clean and good service

Very few campers in the park which made it more pleasant for us. the camp sites are very close together and fortunately there was no one beside us. Due to covid, a lot of the amenities were closed but we still had fun. The staff were very accommodating. We will stay again.

My wife and I came with our 2 dogs and had a great stay. Great environment! Can’t wait to go back

The tent sites are incredibly toooooo close to each other! We had a tent less than 4 feet from us in every direction.

We paid full price, but had way fewer amenities given the time of year. There were no water spigots turned on for the season, so we had to walk around for ages for water. It was great that the camp store was open, but it was only open during prime hiking times, so we barely got back in time for the couple of things we needed. I would have expected an off-season discount.

The hot water at the lower bathhouse was not the greatest but overall everything was clean and staff were friendly.

Camp sites are way to small

All of the workers and managers go above and beyond. The facilities are kept in great shape. There is tons of things to do for children and adults alike. We tend to stay at Harpers Ferry in the spring and the fall. Their fall festivities are awesome. from hayrides to haunted houses to costume contest to pumpkin carving, and as usual the free pancake breakfast!

This was our first time here. Our family ( 2 dogs and 20 month old) came during KOA’s Halloween weekend event. We enjoyed our experience and all the activities available during the weekend.

Had a great time

The site was nice and had what we needed (water/electric and good space). The amenities were clean and convenient. We would have preferred it if the sites were a little more spread out so we weren’t so close to our neighboring campers, but otherwise it was great.

So much fun, great staff! The kids have a blast every time and it’s really great!

One niught campoing at a tent site. Bathrooms were convenient and clean. Like many KOAs, Harpers Ferry used toilet and sink and separate rooms for unisex showers. We only took advantage of one amenity: miniature golf. The check-in representative let us out of a second night reservation with no penalty which was much appreciated.

Very good experience, our 3rd time camping at KOA love it!
