Welcome to Clarke County Tourism

Clarke County has become an oasis for the Washington, DC and Northern Virginia traveler. We are just 60 miles west of Washington, DC, 12 miles from Hollywood Casino and Race Track and 16 miles from historic Harpers Ferry. As soon as you crest the Blue Ridge Mountains into Clarke County you will know why Clarke County is referred to as the oasis. At the foot of the mountain is the Shenandoah River and beyond this famed American river are miles of gently rolling hills. This planned open space community provides not only scenic beauty but hiking on the Appalachian Trail, fishing, canoeing, rafting, and kayaking on the Shenandoah River and award winning wineries where you can choose the view of the mountains or a view of the valley below. Dining experiences range from a 5 star country inn and restaurant, to down home cooking at its very best. Entertainment of all types are around practically every bend and includes anything from art shows to music venues to hot air balloons and last, but hardly least, the many historic sites and museums.

Clarke County was the home of Lord Clarke, Revolutionary War General Daniel Morgan, George Washington’s daughter Nellie Custis and the birthplace of Robert E. Lee’s wife, Mary Anna Randolph Custis. With only 14,500 people living in the entire county, Clarke County’s rich history can still be viewed as it was 200 years ago.

Whether your interest is outdoor adventures, cultural and historic, arts and entertainment or just a relaxing sight seeing tour of unspoiled countryside, Clarke County is the place for you. Though Clarke County is only one hour from the Metropolitan Washington, DC area, we are a world away!
