  • I've rafted the Shenandoah with HFAC twice now and have had a great time on both trips. The process is well-organized and not expensive. The employees are professional and answer all your questions, b...  more »

  • I went tent camping here and can't vouch for any of the activities because I wanted to do the civil war hikes in the area. The staff was extremely helpful and nice. The bathrooms were the cleanest and best maintained that I've ever seen at a campground. There are a few things I didn't like about tent camping here though. First the tent campsites are almost on top of each other. At 10pm a family checked in they used​ their car's headlights to set up their tent blinding me. They argued the whole time and since I was right next to them I couldn't ignore it. If the sites were more spaced out or had vegetation between them it would have been better. Second, because they do so many activities, there is a constant stream of people walking through the tent camping area. If you want privacy or seclusion this is not the place. If you want to sneeze and not have the guy camping right next to you feel obligated to say "God bless you" because he's so close, this is not the place. Also I would not recommend biking to this location. It is not safe. The road is essentially a highway with little to no shoulder at times.
  • Well run adventure center. Staff is very nice and efficient. Had lots of fun. Enjoyed zip lining with Erin, Warren and Bigfoot and rafting with Chase and Terry. They were knowledgeable and adhered to ensuring safety while having fun. I have rafting with all of the local centers and have found HFAC is the best in this local area.
  • THANK YOU RACHEL!!! I rafted as a counselor last year 3 different times for a summer camp, I loved it! This year, I had to bring my family. Rachel was our guide and she was awesome! She knew Harpers Ferry's history. We'll definitely be back next summer, and we'll definitely be requesting Rachel!
  • Our scout troop had a great time here. We did the flatwater tubing. Staff is friendly and helpful. We ended up going down the river four times. Would recommend. Leigha was very helpful booking our group and Woody the bus driver was awesome.
  • Great rafting trip! The guides are very knowledgeable and fun. They do a good job of making the trip as exciting or as peaceful as you like. They keep you safe while also giving you a great ride. Steve was our guide and he was fantastic! The facilities were very clean.
