Return to summer camp at the Harpers Ferry/Civil War Battefields KOA! Remember when vacations meant spending time outdoors in the sunshine, often with the entire family, enjoying all the great things that nature and summer have to offer? Well, at the Harpers Ferry/Civil War Battlefields KOA, we’re bringing back good old-fashioned summertime fun.
A resort fee* of only $10 per night per site allows everyone in your group to enjoy many of these campground amenities:
- Jumping Pillow
- Mountain O' Sand
- Giant Chess/Checkers
- 18 Hole Mini Golf
- Bike Rentals
- Cannon Shooting
- Re-enactors Museum
Family summer fun begins with a splash in our heated Junior Olympic-size pool. Find a spot on the deck in the sun or in the shade under an umbrella while you catch your breath. The wading pool for the smaller set is located nearby.
A cross between a trampoline and a bounce castle, the jumping pillow offers a new experience for all ages. With a shade cover, the family can spend hours flying through the air!
Enjoy a family movie in our renovated 60-seat theater. The popcorn is always freshly popped!
Mountain O' Sand
It’s like a day at the beach! Bring your pail and shovel for some good old-fashioned fun making sand castles and playing king of the hill.
Giant chess/checkers set
Checkmate with pieces that are 2 1/2 ft. tall, or move checker pieces that are larger than a foot in diameter to win.
Challenge each other to some competition as you attempt to toss horseshoes around a stake 10 feet ahead.
Basketball and Volleyball
Weather won’t keep you from challenging your friends and family to a game! Choose from our indoor or outdoor basketball court, or have fun on our sand volleyball court.
18 Hole Mini Golf
Challenge your kids to a round of "putt putt." Our mini golf course is the ideal activity for some light competition in the sun.
Rent a banana bike, a 4-seat pedal bike or a 4-wheeled pedal bike for a half hour or an hour. Available at Polly’s poolside concession.
Are you up to shooting our cannon? Register when you arrive during any of our summer and fall theme weekends, and you may be selected to fire our cannon. Every Saturday from Memorial Day through Halloween we fire our cannon twice at 5 p.m. After you shoot the cannon, you have your photo taken and receive a one-of-a-kind gift to take home and display.
The National Civil War
Browse our historical building filled with Civil War and re-enactors memorabilia owned by Tom and Marsha Wood. Observe the loading and lighting of the replica civil war cannon, then cover your ears and experience the black powder sensation. Open Saturday 10:30-5:30 during the summer. Meet hosts dressed in periodic costumes. Learn more about the authentic Civil War artifacts on display and the history of re-enactments through the years.
