Harpers Ferry West Virginia

Harpers Ferry WV – Historic town in the Blue Ridge Mountains

Join the Travel Hags for a Family Camping weekend at Harpers Ferry West Virginia October 26-27, 2013.  We’ll be Camping at the Harpers Ferry KOA (cabins are available) where they’ll have lots of activities for the kids (haunted house tour, crafts, games). On Saturday we’ll head to the National Park which covers the historic town center, maybe hike part of the Appalachian Trail or climb to Jefferson’s Rock for magnificent views of the confluence of the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers.  This is a great opportunity to see Harpers Ferry when it’s most beautiful – in full Autumn color.

The town played a key role in the Civil War and has kept much of its historic integrity.  Saturday evening we’ll do a group meal at the campground, then head off to the Harpers Ferry Ghost Tour – the #2 rated attraction in Harpers Ferry and the #1 rated Ghost Tour in America (Trip Advisor).  It’s also the oldest continually running ghost tour in America.

Harpers Ferry is full of ghosts.
