We spent 10 days here in our first real long term camping trip with our new Travel Trailer. We had a great time and can’t wait to return. We visited with three children ranging in age from 10 to 14 and they loved it. There were a ton of activities. The staff was friendly, helpful and informative. The grounds were well maintained. The facilities were kept fresh, current and clean. The campground was close to full capacity, yet we never felt like it was crowded. The sites were clearly marked and well maintained. The ready access to the bay was a bonus. The pools were well kept and always fun to be around. They have an onsite Water-Balloon Battle area that is just way too much family fun. The crafts were well organized and monitored. The entertainment was always appropriate and very good with the audience. All in all a great trip and place to stay.

We spent Memorial Day weekend here in 2007 and had SO much fun that we returned for July 4th. The staff was friendly, informative, knowledgeable, and helpful. The grounds were well kept and maintained. The facilities were clean and plentiful. Everything about Gettysburg is close enough to be convenient yet far enough away to keep the grounds quiet. The two weekends we were here they were very full, yet we never felt squeezed in. There were plenty of activities if you stayed on site and the area around Gettysburg is bustling with fun and historical things to do. We have three children from 12 to 16 years old and they had a great time, as did the adults. We will be back many more times, for sure.

While the park is generally nice, the management staff and owners are unacceptable. We spent a great many weekends here from 2003 through 2006 as we had younger children who enjoyed the grounds and facilities. They also made a great many friends. For us, it was extremely convenient for weekend “getaways”. Our last season here we accepted a seasonal spot for a number of reasons. However, the more we visited and the more information we gathered, the more we became disenchanted. The more we became acquainted with the staff, the more abusive we found the staff to be towards all the children, not just ours. There were many incidents in and around the grounds that management either chose to ignore, or refused to address. These included dangerous behavior such as drunken golf cart racing late at night (the owners and participants were known to the management, who double as security), equipment theft including one golf cart from a site twice in one weekend by the same drunken weekend campers, a broken security gate that stayed in the up position for more than six weeks, and more. While the bathrooms were generally clean, the last two years we visited it was often because the seasonal campers took it upon themselves to tidy them up as the cleaning crew visits became less frequent and the work done was poor and not monitored well. When contacted about these situations the owner chose to provide a curt response ignoring the details and information. A second communication was acknowledged and a promise to remediate several issues was made – and not followed through on that anyone could tell. Many seasonal campers, including ourselves not only left the campground, but like us have decided never to return to an Adventure Bound owned campground.
