The main parking lot at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park is located at 171 Shoreline Drive, Harpers Ferry, WV 25425 and can accommodate several hundred vehicles. At this location is also the park’s visitor center and starting point for the shuttle bus service to Lower Town.
While other parking does exist in Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, it is extremely limited. We recommend that visitors who plan to explore museums and exhibits or are hiking a trail that begins in Lower Town utilize the main parking lot and shuttle bus. Doing so reduces vehicle congestion in Lower Town and provides for pedestrian safety.
For information about parking areas at battlefield locations within the park, please visit the visitor center or Lower Town Information Center for a map.
