Enjoyed the comfort and friendliness of Harper's Ferry Hostel. I lucked out on free pizza night. Also very historic HF park.

Site manager Loretta was again most gracious and accommodating. This site is a great location once the twists and turns are navigated once or twice. View of Potomac River from the bluff was both refreshing and relaxing; place for a good read.
