Group Fees and Reservations

All organized groups planning to visit Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, including educational groups, should make reservations a minimum of three weeks before the scheduled arrival date. Teachers, please see our Field Trips page for more information. Unless the group has been granted an official fee waiver, all fees apply.

It may be possible to accommodate shorter request periods, but it is not guaranteed. If an official fee waiver or education reservation is not made within the stated three week period of advance notice, the group will be subject to paying normal park entrance fees upon arrival.

To make a group or education reservation, please contact us via email.

Group fees are assessed at the time of reservation. National Park Service employees will determine group status as commercial or non-commercial. The following is provided for informational purposes. Please contact the Entrance Station at (304) 535-6299 for additional information.
