Our site was next to river with shaded trees. There is putt-putt for kids, a pool, lots of flowers. The gravel road was being repaired and level, it needed it. It was quiet and relaxing . We had family come to visit. The manager waived the fee the next morning . This was a good thing . - Chicabunny

1. Location is near a river/creek and very peaceful environment.
2. Staff was courteous.
now the reasons for only 2/3 stars.
3. showers never had warm water - 2 of us showering at various times of the day for 2 nights.
4. showers were the worst we have ever had. They look like someone said "let's add a shower here" and jerryrigged it to add it in both male and female showers.
5. Mens showers were outside and in a different room than the toilets.
6. Sites are real close to each other
7. maintanence needs to be done on the grounds. Sites are tired and weedy.
8. It's not really as close to Antietam NP as they would like you to believe.
9. We had a pull-thru site but to get out of the site with our tow car, you had to back down the gravel lane to exit area. Pull-thru obviously designed for trailers, not motorhomes.
10. Electricity box too far back on site. It also kept blowing the circuit breaker when we used any electrical appliance. - Ms Winnie

Campground was cramped with maximum sites in minimum space. Attractive plantings and common areas in riverside woodland. Pull-through site was not level. Utility connections were at front of coach and required every inch of our power cable and an additional 10-ft water hose added to our 25-foot. Campground wifi was satisfactory, and there was good Verizon 4G LTE. - jbrucemagon

Very clean. Great little museum for Appalachian Trail in the park. Pet area is somewhat restrictive. Lots of hiking trails, not so much for biking. - doghouse traveler

We really liked this campground for its remoteness. Trees all around the sites; hiking trails nearby; right next to the Appalachian Trail. Campsite hosts very friendly. General store 1/4 mile walk away. We would definitely stay here again. - Jolly Out There

This state park is close to Gettysburg, and we used it while touring the battlefields. The sites, while not as private as some places we have been, were adequately large, and the bathrooms were spotlessly clean. Showers are free. I have arthritis and have limited mobility, and the handicapped facilities here are some of the best I have seen. Camp hosts were nice and helpful. Store on premises had good burgers and fries. I would stay here again. - nativemainer

We inadvertently ended up in Gettysburg during Bike Week, so the campground was very full our first night. The campground itself is very well maintained and clean. There are a lot of sites; most are fairly close but some are a little more spaced out. There is a separate loop for tents in the back with a few porta-pottys. Most of the back-in sites are shaded, but most of the pull-thrus are open and sunny. The site we were in (#60) was right at the main intersection, with a lot of passing traffic. That wasn't fun, especially with a lot of loud bikes. Bathrooms/showers were clean and private, but a little crowded on a busy weekend. Location is great... Far enough outside of town to not be in traffic, but close enough to get to the sites fairly quickly. Staff was very visible and as everyone left on Sunday afternoon, they made sure each site was in good condition. The office let us borrow a DVD of "Gettysburg" free of charge. We would stay here again, but we would be sure to get a different site. - wanderfilledlife

We stayed 2 nights at Gettysburg Campground. For whatever reason they placed our 36 ft Class A on 2 sites and between several travel trailers. I am unclear why they did not put us in the motorhome portion of the campground. The site was cramped with small roads and so many campers I had major difficulty to get into and out of the site. It is more a kids' campground than those of us who travel as a couple. - Rdhjr

Would stay again. This is a nice facility with clean restrooms. Lot spacing is close, site surface is gravel. Lots have some shade and feature a fire ring and picnic table. - svcrews

We were just here for bike week. Very nice campground, not deluxe but clean, well kept and fun. They had live bands 3 nights in a row. Great crowd of campers. - gandb26

We've stayed here multiple times. As always, the campground and staff met our expectations. The only issue would be the lack of wi-fi at our site, but that was not a big problem for us. We enjoyed our extended stay and will definitely return in the fall. - Mike in NJ

We have been going to Granite Hill since 2001, several weekends per year. They have sites for every kind of camping, tents to big rigs. You do have to watch, some sites are more level than others. Not all sites have stone, and no sites are paved. Minimal number of sites with cable available. We camp spring and fall, not summer, but they do have a pool. In the fall they have hayrides and other activities for the children. They usually have some type of entertainment for the entire family weekend nights. You can contact them to see what's on the schedule for when. They have a small cafe that offers your standard breakfast items, hot dogs and ice cream. They also have their own Put Put golf. There is a decent store at the office. This campground is huge, and most of the sites are not on top of each other. It's very family friendly. There is a decent size, clean laundry room. It's only 20 minutes to Gettysburg, and there's plenty of restaurants and wineries to visit. There are probably more people there from Maryland than PA on any given weekend. The grounds are kept clean, and if you have any issues, stop at the office and they will help get them resolved. The staff is pleasant. We enjoy this campground, which is why we go every year. We take some of our grandchildren a few weekends. It's not fancy, but a clean and decent place to be with beautiful views. - JoppaFolks

Well kept state park with a large campground. Electric loop is one of the older loops and sites are not all that level. We stayed in one of the H/C sites with electric in a tenting loop because access was easier. Each loop has a host site but only one of the five hosts was present. Campground is uphill from everything at the park and plan on driving down to the lake or trail heads. Within the park hiking available or just across the road to the larger Catoctin National Park with plentiful trails and rock outcroppings to visit. Lake has a couple of nice sand beaches and the falls were running due to recent rains. Park tends to get a lot of day use at the beaches but the campground is secluded and access restricted. Restrooms were clean and serviced daily. We camp here two to three times a season. - HR52

The reason for the 5 rating is mainly because the trees in the park need to be trimmed and pruned back. There are too many low branches, and limbs sticking out into the road. Extensive problem in this park. They recently poured loose gravel alongside all the interior roads, blocking access to even the campsite driveways, had to shovel it away, just to get our RV into the site. Thirty amp power breaker switch was weak, tripped easily, even while using less than 30 amps, breaker switches on pedestals simply need to be replaced. Otherwise park is beautiful. Be careful and drive slow on 77 into park, windy road with many sharp curves and tree limbs. Do not arrive in the dark. - univmd

In my 40 years of camping I have never felt so unwelcome as I did when entering this park today. Not only were we not permitted to access a perfectly open site until the 3 PM check-in time, but also we were directed to take our 30 foot motor and just go park it somewhere until it was time. We went to the lake, and the person there was seemingly unwilling to let us take our camper into the beach parking area, the only place there was decent parking anywhere around. Some training in public relations is in order. - SilverOtter

This is about the most well equipped KOA you will ever encounter. Everywhere you stroll, there are activities for children. And, there are the sights of Gettysburg nearby. The staff was helpful, responsive, and kept the campground organized. There are lots of trees around the park, flowers, and water features that make the camp an ideal spot for families on summer vacations. - JBick

We have stayed a few times in this campground.As always it is clean, and service was great.Staff was very nice. we stayed on site 53, which is a gravel pull thru.Site was level and required no extra boards. Power and water pressure was great. WIFI is a hot spot, and we had no trouble staying connected to it. Cable, which is extra $, had several channels. This is early in the season so camground was not full.There are not alot of activities for kids, as you may see in other KOAs. The biggest problem remains the lack of many spaces for a larger rv. This campground can be tight getting in and out of, and getting around the campground itself. - mahill526

This was our fifth year here for Halloween, and I can't say enough good things about this campground. This year our group expanded to six families (14 kids under 11 and 12 adults), with two RV'ers and the rest in tents. The staff made sure we were booked in the same loop and adjacent to each other. This campground has a whole weekend of activities planned for Halloween, most of which are geared for younger kids. No worrying about too much downtime here. Everyone decorates and the costume trick-or-treat parade happens right after dark. For safety they close off the camp entrance to all traffic, and forbid driving inside the campground which I appreciate. After trick-or-treat there is a magic show and a 'haunted trail'.
The campground itself isn't huge but it does sit in the woods off a side road. RV sites are on the small side, but we stay in the loop without sewer hookups, where the sites are larger. There is a nice and surprisingly steep nature trail that goes to the top of the hill behind the camp.
The atmosphere is quieter here than at the other Gettysburg area campgrounds we've been to - no late night partying. No DJ dance parties either, as I said their program is more suited for younger kids. - MattFromPA

We have stayed here a couple of times as it comes at a convenient stop time in our itinerary. The place is really an RV dealership with some campsites in the back. A trucking company is adjacent which has noisy all night operations that can affect some sites. Our last visit occurred when the dealership seemed to have an overstock of units. Most sites and access roads were being used for storage. We arrived around 2 p.m. and only one site was available. Staff was friendly and diligent in making sure we could fit into the space before we paid. No sewer at site and the dump station was positioned on the passenger side of the rig on exit. We didn't bother to try to use it. We would strongly recommend that anyone planning on staying here, call ahead to be sure there will be sites available. - halfdimes

Sites and common road were somewhat tight for our larger RV and is a muddy mess after any rainfall. Appreciate being able to stay for free to have some service work done on the RV but truly felt like it was only adequate for the price (not) paid. If I were paying to stay here I would deduct a rating point for every dollar per night they charged me. - Snidely Whiplash

I stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. Not many places honor the Passport rate over a holiday weekend but they do. Lots of noise from I-81. The campground is in one part of the storage area for new and used RV's. I did not see any units that could have been considered used for parts. A short walk found a dumpster to dispose of trash. There is a complete RV parts and service dept. It was an adequate place to stay. I didn't feel like I was locked in or unsafe at any time during my 3 day stay here. - mrracechaser

We arrived to find they had the wrong dates on the reservation. They had 6 sites unassigned and were able to get us a W/E site. The water had low pressure, power was OK but low. We were guided to the site but not assisted in backing in, sort of pointed to the site. They had several activities planned as this is a member park and it appears that most people know each other. - A hitch and hop

This is a standard "parking lot" style campground. However, they handle big rigs. Sites are VERY close together. Sites were not level, we saw campers with wheels off the ground to get level. They were full on the weekends and it felt like the campers were sitting on top of each other. Power was a significant issue. Our power went out several times; we had to find staff to flip the breaker. In talking with other campers, power fluctuation and loss is a normal occurrence. They were also working on the water lines throughout our 2 week stay. Multiple times our water was shut off-with NO NOTICE. Campground sponsored weekend activities-mostly for kids. We left to get groceries, when we came back they had the entrance blocked and we couldn't get into the campground. We told the staff member that was "guarding" the front entrance that we had been given no notice of the closure and had groceries that needed to get into freezer. His response: "Oh, Well. Bummer". Gravel roads through the campground, but they were well maintained. Each camp site is gravel. Some of the campsites had a small patch of grass. Sites are all very level. Each site had a fire ring and picnic table. Only 30 amps available. No sewer hookups, there is a dump station to use as you exit. They also have a honey wagon available for an additional cost. There is a nice laundry room, but it was more expensive than most we have seen. Good Verizon coverage. We had DirecTV satellite, but about ½ of the campsites could not have gotten satellite due to trees. Bottom line for us: communication between staff and campers is pitiful at best. We would stay here again, but understanding what we may experience. Know what to expect here: poor power, possible water issues, small sites, and rude staff. - GLPColorado

I am a TRA member, and a Coast to Coast member. My home group for TRA is in NC. When I joined TRA in March of 2008 Gettysburg was part of the NC parks and I would make my reservation online and pick my site and length of stay.
However this time I had to go through Coast to Coast and pay them and Gettysburg picked my site for me. Of course I got the non sewage site. I just want to thank TRA for not taking care of one of their own, because I have not upgraded my membership.
I did enjoy my stay and will be back because of all the history of Gettysburg. The RV park itself is located on one of the battle fields which makes it a desirable place to visit. All sites are gravel, uneven and close together. Overall a good place to visit. - ray wyatt

This park needs some serious TLC. First of all check in was very pleasant. The gentlemen behind the counter was friendly and welcoming. The store offered lots of items and there's a great sandwich counter. The hook ups at our site worked fine. We were close to our neighbor, who thankfully was alone and quiet. Restrooms and laundry need updating badly. The overall look of the park is old and needs a lawn mower and some sprucing up. Needs to get rid of the junk hanging around. It's very close to the highway and we found it extremely noisey. This park has real good potential but don't see myself staying there again. Not worth the cost. - Buckie

This campground is worth the stay to see the Old Grist Mill and there is a good selection of deli items and groceries in the store. My site was level and utilities were easy to access. WiFi is excellent. Stayed right after Memorial Day holiday so very quiet. There is some highway noise but could not hear it from my rig in the middle of the park. Just what I needed for an overnight stay and happy to stay another right when rain delayed my leaving. Back in sites have shade. - nanzhere

We have been coming here for years before the owners that are here now. The store has everything you need. We can grab a sub when we get back and if I don't feel like cooking. What we love is they now have sewer; especially, where your going to be here a couple of months. Don't have to pull off or pay to be pumped. I don't know if it's me or what, but the site width seems smaller. They have enlarged the campground and it seems we are awful close to our neighbor. I asked and was told no but I think they have. The WiFi works when it wants to. I have a back up but it still is frustrating when they advertise WiFi. Anything negative will not prevent us from coming back. These folks go out of their way to do their best. It's just off the turnpike, so snowbirds give it a try. They turned things around and you don't even hear the turnpike anymore.
This is a no frills campground and it's nice to just relax. - C and C

This is an older State campground. There are about 12 sites that would work for a big unit: we have a 40' fifth wheel. We live close and use this park so our grand children can visit. The rest rooms, showers are OK but very outdated. The sites are good sized for the most part, the main road is paved but sites are really dirt for the most part, need restoned badly. Not bad unless it rains, then there is a lot of mud. We camp here with friends a lot as there is a group circle for about 7 units, that is big and open. Pool is about 1 mile away at the main park, there is good fishing and lots of hiking trails. Our price reflects a resident and senior discount. - rmckee

This is an older state park. There is a large public area with picnic tables and large pool. Campers get discounts on the pool. Park was just okay, however, you have to consider the age of the park. Bathrooms/showers were older but kept clean by staff. We stayed in the Hosack area. A little overgrown in some sites. Not many spaces for large rigs. We were very close to the next camper. Smaller sites were nicely spaced between campers. - cosmotaf

Stayed two nights. Rate is with the senior discount. Park is very well maintained. Bathrooms were cleaned early every morning and then checked later in the day. Bathrooms are old but are slated for replacement in 2012. Sites are neat with no excessive weeds. You will hear some road noise from route 30 because it is nearby and the campground is on the side of a hill above the road. Would definitely stay again. - beemerphile1
