River & Trail has 4 Locations
Harpers Ferry & Millville WV, and Knoxville & Brunswick MD Locations
Shenandoah and Potomac Riverfront Access!
River & Trail Outfitters offers four convenient check-in locations in and around the Harpers Ferry area. This helps you get closer to your river or trail experience faster. Two of our destinations are located right on the shore of the Shenandoah and the Potomac Rivers. At these locations, cars are conveniently parked close by for easy access to your change of clothes and whatever else you may need. The other two destinations are only minutes away from the river put-in or take-out. All four locations check-in only one trip or a few trips, which allow for a more efficient and less crowded check-in experience. For your convenience, retail items such as water shoes, glasses straps, snacks, drinks, cell phone cases, t-shirts, etc… are available at each of our outposts.
