Harpers Ferry National Historical Park is indeed one of the crown jewels in the National Park Service. Covering over 4,000 acres in 3 states (WV, VA and MD) at the scenic confluence of the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers and the Potomac River water...more

We spent a few hours at Harpers Ferry on a very hot day. We parked at the visitor's center and took the shuttle down to the town. The town is comprised of NPS buildings which operate as historical museums and small commercial shops and restaurants....More
Great place for beautiful views, great hiking and learn history. We hiked to Maryland Heights with ages ranging from 4 yrs. to 55 yrs. The view up there is amazing. I definitely would suggest packing some food since not many worthy options. Make it a...More
Whatever your interest is you're sure to find something to do in beautiful Harpers Ferry. John Brown's Rebellion, museums dedicated to Lewis and Clark, trains, and the local history provide much to consider. We hiked a bit on the AT but had an older family...More

Thank you Teresa for recommending hiring a Harpers Ferry Park Guide. In these days of dwindling resources for the National Park Service (this has been going on for many years) hiring a Park Guide from the Harpers Ferry Park Association, the non-profit arm of HFNHP,...More
History and FUN.
So much to see in this sweet park... and some folks only stay in town. Make sure you see it all. Storer College area, North and South School House Ridge, Murphy Farm, Maryland Heights.
Parking at the Visitor Center is both easy and convenient. For a $ 10 entry fee per car you can ride the bus to Lower Town and avoid the traffic and parking woes there. The nice thing about this park is there is a lot...More
