We have camped at Harpers Ferry KOA several times. After reading the reviews, I felt compelled to write my own and say "take the reviews with a grain of salt".
We have had different sites each time we've stayed. Yes, there are some that are small and unlevel, but for the most part we have had good luck getting a good site to fit our needs. The bath houses, pool, and other activities are in a central location, with most of the camp sites surrounding them, making it good for people with children in tow (we sometimes camp with our grandkids). If you want a shaded site, request it when you make a reservation, because there are some on the right, coming in, that have absolutely no shade.
FREE pancakes every morning. Enough said.
Some of the reviews stated that quiet hours were not enforced. Every time we've stayed here, quiet hours HAVE been enforced. When we stayed a few weekends ago, we saw a staff member come by on a golf cart, stop at the travel trailer in front of ours and ask them to turn their music off. It was 10:05pm. Quiet hour starts at 10pm (stated online and in their brochures). The music wasn't bothering us, but we could hear it at our campsite. We were not traveling with children. Maybe if we had been it would have been a nuisance past 8:30-9.
Bathrooms could have been cleaner at times, but I blame that on unattended children sent to the bathrooms by themselves. Staff was regularly cleaning, several times a day.
We've also camped here during hard rains. No trees have ever come down anywhere in the campground that I've seen or heard about.
Overall, this is a great place for couples or families. Clean, a lot going on if you like that sort of environment. Worth a try, definitely.
