Harper's Ferry

July 19 was another travel day.

380 miles, got to Harper's Ferry KOA around 5 PM

July 20 Harper's Ferry KOA

Great weather 72 degrees this AM and the high was in the low 80's

The campground is your usual KOA no trees and lots of asphalt, and internet is so slow you will be checking out before your email loads, $62 per night plus a $10 per day resort fee. Pool is full of loud kids, great if you have kids. Rest of resort extras are of little use. They do have a pancake breakfast every morning and 1 bundle of firewood that is included.

If you want to be right in Harper's Ferry it is your only choice. If you are willing to drive a little there are a lot of RV parks within 30 miles.

Rode our bikes on the C & O Towpath this morning. We rode from milepost 60 to milepost 65 and back to the car for a total of 10 miles. We have a long ways to go if we decide to do all 184 miles of the path. At the pancake breakfast this morning we met a group of boys that started in Pittsburgh, PA and plan to finish 60 miles from here to Georgetown today. That will be a 300 mile plus ride over several days.

We went back to the National Park Visitor's Center to catch the park service bus down to Low Town Harper's Ferry. First priority was to find a restaurant for lunch. Then it was off to see a park service movie on the history of Harper's Ferry. Then home for a late afternoon nap. Since we were in camp early today we grilled chicken for dinner.
