23 Parks near Gardners, Pennsylvania

This large, full service campground provides a pleasant and restful night while driving on I-81, and has possibly the most beautiful, modern RV park bathrooms I have ever seen anywhere. The office has good ice cream for sale, and those two things make me return and enjoy staying at this campground even though the price is higher than our usual overnight stopover. - NC Writer

Our site was not even close to level. Tried to use our levelers but had to settle for spending the night listing to port.
WI FI was pretty good but no cable TV and only a few OTA channels were stable enough to watch.
After dinner we thought we'd like to play some mini golf. I found out that it would cost us $6. After paying $45 for an uneven campsite with no cable TV I really do think charging for mini golf is over the top. - dhaney1944

Large, well kept resort type park. Roads and sites are well maintained gravel. Most sites are level. Convenient off of I-81. Our rate of $47 is for long pull thru, 50 amp, water and sewer. They have other options, e.g., back-in 30 amp, no sewer etc. A little pricey for an overnight but not much available in this area.
Many amenities such as pool, game room, shuffle board etc. All in tip top shape. Workers were very helpful. We will stay here again on our way through. - atwig

Office staff was very good and efficient. Ground crew was very good as well, cutting grass in the site that I chose prior to backing in. Overall the park was in very good condition and well maintained. Ice cream social was nice, as well as being on a Farm. Petting Zoo, for the younger crowd as well as the adults. The only "problem" that I found was the signage could be improved when approaching the campground. - md_procouple

We were assisted in selecting the best available site for our motorhome and in getting to the site chosen, and that was much appreciated. Older infrastructure overall in park, but well maintained. Lots of activities. Friendly & helpful maintenance staff. Very busy during fall season before park closes. Many sites occupied by longer term residents, thus not many sites to choose from for short-term stay. Most available sites grass and not level. Location is rural. Maybe the most important bit of info to report is the dangerous dropoff/ditch and poor pavement design at the right turn from Bermudian Church Rd onto Big Mount Rd when nearing the Park. - dndrv

Gettysburg Farm RV Camp ground. Appears as half the camper are permanent and the other half are "choose your site". Reservations mean nothing. We're reserved a full connection, with sewer. None of the remaining sites (over 40) had sewer, only electric and water. Sites are grass and soft clay. Motor home next to us moved 3 times before finding a level site where his jacks didn't sink. I'm glad we were here without rain. This appears to be normal reservation policy as none of the campers around us were told "choose your site" and you may not have sewer. Many nice camp grounds in the area. Would not have stayed if they didn't already have our full payment. Unfortunate that ethics are not part of the parks rules. WIFI is pay but couldn't get a connection to make my payment. Unable to review the bandwidth because I never made connections. - Metro Johnson

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

Rate reflects PA discount. Other days were higher. This campground is extremely handy to the battlefield and for going into town. It is excellent for biking to just about anywhere in the area including downtown Gettysburg. Battlefield entrance is less than a half mile away. Guided horse tours are available right at the campground. Front desk clerks were very friendly and helpful. Water pressure and supply were outstanding, each site equipped with 1-inch supply line. The main negative comment I can make is that the wifi struggled. It was usable most of the time but was often very slow or intermittent. Nevertheless we would definitely stay here again. The convenience and friendly atmosphere are too hard to find these days. - Edistobob

Just stayed for a very quick overnight while on the way south. Did not see the campground in the day light, but can say the bath house, while dated, was clean and well maintained and the woman I spoke to on the phone was very pleasant. I was also pretty dark and very quiet. Sites seemed close from what I could tell, but campground was not busy. Price reflects Passport America rate. - Cyclonic

Stayed for 3 nights just as place to sleep while touring Gettysburg. Biggest selling point is proximity to the battlefield and (if you're into it) horse ride tours of parts of battlefield. Store is pretty complete and sites have decent separation, but grounds are not kept as one would hope for a resort that has a base rate of $50. Front desk people seemed a bit flustered when we checked in, but could just have been having a bad day. Even so, their mumbling and complaining didn't set up a great first impression. But as we said, it was a place to stay while we visited the battlefield, and it was very acceptable for that. - Bill and Bev C

The roads and sites were made of poorly maintained gravel, with washouts and ruts along with dust. The sites were sufficiently long enough for our 45 ft 5th wheel but levelling was a challenge. Dumpsters were overflowing several times during our week long stay. Heavily wooded. Could hear highway noise. The facilities were old, tired and poorly lit. Notified the staff of a low hanging large tree limb that was over the roadway and they said they were waiting on their tree guy. It was getting lower when we left causing us to exit the park going out the wrong way to ensure it would not hit our rig. Staff (primarily teens) was just weak in their response to questions or when seeking assistance. Did not use WiFi. It does not appear as if the owners are placing any maintenance funds in the park. Park appeared to be heavily populated with full time residents. Some living in tents with lean to's. Though we love Gettysburg, we will not stay here again. - Field Trip

We stayed in the back in a level pullthru site. The power was good, but water pressure was a trickle on the day we left. Cable was good. Some foliage between the sites. This campground is right off RT 15, and you can still hear road noise, even in the back section, though not nearly as bad as the front of the campground. It was early in the season, so the restaurant wasnt open yet, and the store did not have alot either. This is a huge campground so bring a bike or golf cart. - mahill526

We asked for a site way in the back away from the highway. The sites were well spaced. If the leaves were out on the trees, the cover between a lot of sites would be good. Despite being in the back corner, the highway noise is pretty loud, but that didn't take away from our stay. Water and sewer were well placed. Water pressure was 70 psi and the electric stayed steady at 122v. Cable provided 75 channels. Site 314 was perfectly level.
The reason I rated the park as an 8 was the value. We paid $59 + 10% tax each night for a "premium site". Our fire ring was a rusted out, moveable 18-wheeler rim, while other sites had nice fire pits with a BBQ grill on top. We would stay again but may be more apt to just get a non-premium site. - teamfour

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

We stayed for 3 nights in site 237. The utilities were fine, but for that price I don't expect to get gouged for wifi. The site was level with grass and some gravel. Many of sites appear to be seasonal or long term. Many were fixed up nicely, but some looked like a junkyard! The pool needs cleaning and has broken cement and tiles. I consider this campground overpriced for the condition and would not stay here again. - cooktr

We stayed in a pull thru site in the front of the campgound. It was unlevel, gravel . Utilities worked fine. Nice amount of cable channels.The sites are very close in most places. We were supposed to have a back in near the back of this campground, that was extremely unlevel and had standing water due to the recent rain, Alot of the back ins looked this way. I doubt i would stay here again, unless everthing else was booked, and then only in a pull through. - mahill526

We stayed here on a Halloween weekend at 64.00 a night. Pretty steep, but Gettysburg campgrounds are high for whatever reason. They charge a $25.00 permit fee for golf carts, which when I inquired about with the manager he became dismissive and invited me not to stay but having paid already with no refund I could not accommodate. Sites are very tight, hookups are all the way to the back of the sites where we were, a lot of abandoned campers in permanent sites. The good, they had some activities for the kids,a dog parade,the desk staff was very pleasant and helpful,and no overbearing staff policing the grounds. Rating is due to high daily rate, golf cart fee, not a lot of activities considering the cost and it being a Halloween weekend. Would not stay here again . - roo camper

We stayed at Codorus State Park campground the first week of July 2016. We stayed over the 4th of July weekend, so pretty busy as you might expect. The entrance to the campground can be challenging to find and google maps never seemed to get it right for me, so be sure to check your directions carefully. The entrance to the campground through the checkpoint is a bit of a mess and can be a bit difficult to navigate with a larger rig. We have a 35' RV and were able to manage OK, but I can see where it could be a bit hairy for larger rigs, 5th wheels or trailers. Plenty of the above in the park though, so they seemed to have managed as well.
The showers / restrooms are centrally located in each loop of the campground with garbage dumpsters nearby. The showers / restrooms are old, but very clean and there was plenty of hot water.
The campground has both non-electric and 30amp electric sites. There is no water or dump facilities at the individual campsites, though there is both fresh water and dual dump stations at the entrance to the campground.
In general, I don't think there's a perfectly level site in the campground. You can find some that are close to level and others that aren't even close. I saw a lot of blocks being used at some campsites to level rigs and trailers. I saw one motorhome that has nearly 6" off the ground on blocks. I'd say that about half the sites have asphalt pads and half have dirt/stone pads.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the park as there is lots to do at this park, especially if you like the boating and fishing on the lake (though there is no swimming in the lake). - lazyjourney

We've been coming here the past few years in the fall. It's a great state park and nice campground. The water park is closed when we come so I can't comment on it, but I've seen it and looks great. The lake is beautiful and we've rented canoes and had lots of fun. There are a few trails to hike. It's a very peaceful here with varying site types from wooded to full sun. - Way2Roll

Codorus State Park has a nice campground. However, there are not many sites that allow pets, and even fewer pet-friendly sites with shade. I wish I had known that most PA state campgrounds don't have water hookups before we got there, even "modern electric" sites. If I stayed there again I would get site 44 due to its proximity to the water spigot in case we needed to refill the tank. If you don't have a pet, site 57 is also close to a water spigot. - Lori and Larry

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
