Whether you arrive by car or train, bike or motorcycle, or even by your own two feet, come to the HI Harpers Ferry hostel for both relaxation and adventure. Perched on a hill above the C&O Canal Rail Trail and Potomac River, HI Harpers Ferry is an ideal place to pitch your tent or just put up your feet.

You’ll find travelers from around the world camping out on their way along the Appalachian Trail and Washington, DC urbanites getting away from it all in our Great Room. We’ve got free breakfast and Wi-Fi, but also a grill and fire pit for you to use. Tubing and kayaking are just a short distance away, but if wine tastings and history tours are more your speed, that’s not far either. We’re open to the public from May to October, but the entire hostel can be rented by groups year round. We hope to see you at HI Harpers Ferry soon!
