Platform Camping

Mountaintop Platform Camping in Harpers Ferry

Our mountaintop platform sites offer all the amenities of our mountaintop campsites, but with the added bonus of your tent being off the ground and on a dry, level, wood platform. Platform sites are smaller than our other sites and can hold tents up to 10 ft x 10 ft. Located on our scenic mountaintop property near the Potomac River and within easy driving distance of old town Harpers Ferry, these campsites are a great spot to pitch your tent and relax under the stars near a crackling fire in the great Virginia outdoors.

Each platform campsite comes equipped with a picnic table and a grill/fire ring combo, and our nicely appointed bathhouse with hot showers and indoor plumbing, is only a short walk away. All our campsites are located on our private mountaintop property, secured each evening at the gate with access only to campers and cabin guests.

Reserve your firewood now and pick it up after you check in. Fire starters are not provided, but are available for purchase at our Bear Mountain Market.

Each site accommodates 1 tent with up to 4 people. For groups of 5 or more, choose the booking option below that matches your group size.

Please don’t bring firewood with you when you camp. If you find or buy wood, please don’t take any back home with you. Burn it all or give it to other campers. Foreign pests can travel with wood, and carrying firewood from one area to another can be detrimental to the local forest. We have firewood to purchase, or you can collect wood / kindling on the ground if found near the campsite.
