Welcome to Harpers Ferry Campground

Only one hour from the Washington, DC and Baltimore Metro Regions, River Riders now offers primitive waterfront camping on the Potomac River in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia where Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia come together.

Campsites and cabins are available on a beautiful deep water section of the Potomac River near Harpers Ferry in Jefferson County. A four mile section of deep water runs from our campground to above the Dargan Bend Boat Ramp in Maryland. Pontoon boats, fishing boats, water skiing, wake boarding, and jet skis are welcome. Pitch your tent and tie your boat up out front. Bring your RV as well. There are electricity and water hookups for RV sites. For those willing to rough-it, it is a beautiful unique location. We also offer beautiful, River Front Cabins that offer heat and AC, as well as their own full bathrooms. 

Our finished bathhouse is now open so our overnight guests can take showers & our dumping station is available for our RV guests, who can now dump their sewage before leaving the campground! The bath house does have handicap accessibility; please let us know when booking so we can answer all your questions.

Please be aware that in the event of flooding or potential flooding, Harpers Ferry Campground may cancel reservations with refund as only liability.
