7 Parks near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania
Jul 2015 - $30.00
Definitely an older park, with many sites. It rained during our entire stay, so we had quite a few puddles to contend with, but that can happen anywhere. Our site, #54, was in a row of pull-throughs, although we unhooked. We were told that we would have great Wi-Fi service, but that didn't happen. The staff was helpful and friendly and also gave us tickets to some of the attractions in Gettysburg, which we used and enjoyed. The best part of the CG is its close proximity to the Battlefield and cemetery. Try to get to this park by coming up US 15 from the south, or else you will have to maneuver thru the town of Gettysburg, and that could be quite tricky. We would stay here again. - Gus the Fireant

We enjoyed our stay at Artillery Ridge. It was very close to all the things to see at Gettysburg. The owner of the campground also owns some of the museums and activities in Gettysburg and we received free admission tickets to three of them. The camp store even has a small museum from his collections. We received tickets to The Spirit of Gettysburg, Model Train Display, and Gettysburg Diorama.
With the Passport America discount and free admission to three attractions, we felt Artillery Ridge was a good value.
A big worry came up one night when there was a tornado watch in the area. I went to the camp store to ask about their emergency response to such a threat. The desk clerks never heard of such a thing. We were on our own. Luckily all we got was heavy rain. - Pennimanman

Great location for seeing the Gettysburg area. Our site was a level pull-through with full hookups. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Looking forward to returning to the area and will stay here again. Found the campground using Passport America. - Wingn1

Located in a very convenient area to visit the sites of Gettysburg. This is a very large campground in area. It was 7/10 of a mile from the office to our site. There are many seasonals, but that had no impact on our stay. Our site was a nice length pull through with vegetation and boulders separating us from the neighboring sites. Site was fairly level and W/S/E were excellent. The one downside of our visit was the total lack of WiFi. We were told that they were having an issue with the provider and the only reception was at the office. (7/10 of a mile away). We would have no problem returning if in the area. - demoon

We were going to stay here for a couple of nights while visiting some of the sites nearby as they were identified as being “Big Rig” friendly. Not! The park has easy access to & from US-15. The interior roads and sites are gravel. The roads and sites were narrow with some tight corners and vegetation encroachment. The pull through sites were not long enough for larger coaches with their toads attached. The sites were NOT level! We could not get level. There is an extensive tree canopy so access to the southern sky for satellite reception is poor. We were unable to get reception. From the standpoint of a big rig owner, this place deserves a rating of 1, but the rating given was for a more general use by other types of RVs. - bsb814

This is a very large park - needs some work on sites for large rig pull thru. The pool w/slide is accessible from the big rig area and the road in front of our rig was a freeway from noon to 6:00. Speeding autos as well as golfcarts (some of which were being driven by underage kids. The campground personnel REALLY speed. They need to figure out a way to curb/control the speeding to and from the pool. The big rig sites need some leveling work and make all the same price. Four sites on our row were considered premier sites and it wasn't any better than our site. ??? The management are very friendly and helpful - just need to work on roads, sites, speeding issues. I don't agree with their policy of increasing the price of sites for weekends. We would stay here again probably. - werunamuck

Stayed for 6 nights. Very tight to get in and out. Small country roads in and out but passable. I have a 40' Class A and it was very tough into and out of the site. Nice trees all around and would be great for kids with pool, etc. - sd1209

Well maintained. Heavily treed. Beautifully landscaped. Most sites were spacious. Staff very friendly. Pool area looked inviting. Close proximity to the battlefields and downtown Gettysburg. - motorhomey

They had put down fresh stone and graded the roads so mud and dust were not a problem. The sites are pretty close together with little or no privacy. On air TV reception was good and our AT&T signal was strong. The park wifi was so slow it was useless. Park is a good location for touring Gettysburg and the surrounding area and the operator was very helpful with maps, info and ideas that facilitated our visit. - VtLee

Forested campground with a small river running by it for fishing and play. Sites are well spaced and trees provide the feeling of being a little more isolated. Gettysburg Town (and battlefield) is nearby so makes for quick visits. Nice park and activities for the kids. Great location and nice campground. Will certainly go back! - RV-1

One of our favorite campgrounds in the area. Lots of kids in summertime, but good programs and great pool for them. Most sites level, although some in back where we were need leveling. No full hookup sites in back, which requires moving to the dump station if staying long. Full hookup sites are usually for Resort members. Good laundry and very good bathrooms/showers. No cable, but reasonably good antenna reception. Rate is for Coast to Coast. We will definitely return. - Faun

Full hookups are only available to resort members. There are two dump stations. TV reception (antenna) was fair. Wi-Fi was available at the clubhouse. Still, this is a very nice campground. Lovely swimming pool and nice windowed room in clubhouse to sit and snack, or use Wi-Fi. Great showers. Park is well maintained. New sites since our last stay were more level. Lots of kids when we were there and outside movies for them some nights. This campground is in the heart of the battlefield, on the outskirts of Gettysburg. Easy to get to. We stayed there with our Coast to Coast membership, and will definitely go back. - Faun

My husband and I spent three nights here so we could explore the Gettysburg Battlegrounds. The site that we had, #66, was very level.
The property sits on the Marsh Creek and is very well laid-out, quite large (260 sites) and offers both shady and sunny RV sites (pull through and back-in), full hook-ups (water, sewer and 50 or 30-AMP service), cabins (up to 4 people), cottages (up to 6 people), and a primitive tent area along the creek. An RV repair facility is located on site as well.
The campground is located approximately 5-miles from the Gettysburg National Military Park/Visitors Center and is conveniently located to restaurants and shopping downtown.
The grounds of the campground are very well taken care and the staff is extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the surrounding area. Check-in was quick and professional. Amenities at the campground include a rec hall with lots of scheduled activities, playground, shuffleboard, mini-golf, swimming pool, store, laundry facilities, showers/restrooms, dump station, free WI-FI, cable TV (26 channels) and LP gas. Discounts for AAA, Good Sam, Active duty military, police, and firemen are offered.
This is a campground that we will defiantly stay at again when we return to the area and would highly recommend it to others. - The Diesel Gypsies

Enjoyed our stay here. Large, level site. Clean restrooms and showers. Friendly and helpful staff. Great washing machines and dryers in the laundry. Nice pool. Property is superbly manicured. RV repair shop on site. Will definitely stay here again. - Savannah Sam

The park seems very popular as there were a lot of people here and a lot of in and out activity. There seemed to be a few long-term campers near the front. Lots of amenities for kids, pool, playground, mini golf, rental bikes and even a baseball field. There's a creek nearby but because the sites back up to the creek there's no access to walk by it.
Many of the sites are very close together - when we pulled in our slide was within 2 feet of the neighbors slide - we could actually wave to each other through the window! The owner said they were working with a company to review some of the sites for that reason.
Very convenient to town and in a quiet area. One odd rule was that you are not allowed to accept US mail while staying here - you can get packages from Fedex or UPS but not the US mail which didn't make a whole lot of sense - kind of put a damper on my husband's father's day since we booked here for a week so he could get cards from our kids before we knew that wasn't allowed. - Catsinatrailer

This is a big park with all types of sites, tents are mixed with pop-ups mixed with trailers and motorhomes. I am not complaining, I like the diversity. I love all the grassy areas and places to walk. The sites are gravel and few look level and even fewer have sewer hook-ups, just water and electricity. The bathrooms are clean but old. Interesting mix of people. - sara158

Nice campground . Some of the sites are not level at all, some are within very dense trees, so tough to swing out a 35' trailer. Original site we booked was not desirable to us (with kids) so the owner was very nice to try and get us a new available site. Camp store is very nice, campground restaurant is nice - and reasonably priced. Playground equipment is quite dated and needs upgraded. Very few seasonal sites, which is nice for those of us who do not like camping in a "trailer park". - Lspajm

We stayed for their opening weekend in site B9. Our site was level and power was good. Water needed to be shut down due to the extremely cold temps that weekend. We used the bath houses which were clean but dated. Staff was friendly. We would stay again, but only in the section near the office. The other sites can be extremely unlevel. - 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 selected this campground because it was the only one available in Gettysburg with multiple sites to accommodate a last minute family get-together with multiple travel trailers. The previous reviews were mixed so we were a little nervous about what to expect. First, this campground has the cleanest bathrooms I have ever seen at a campground, not so much as a cobweb in a corner. The pool was very clean but really cold. We didn't stay in long but that was due to the unseasonably cool temperatures. The office staff was very friendly and helpful. The campground seemed well maintained in the common areas. There were little to no bugs either which was great! However there were a few negatives to the campground which is why it received a six. The playground consists of 1 slide, 2 seesaws and 4 swings. It could definitely use an upgrade. The mini-golf was $5 per person. The cost was way too expensive given the condition of the course. I would rather pay $7.50 per person for the awesome mini-golf place up the road. The firewood was very expensive for the few little pieces of wood that you get. We drove around and found a better deal on wood. Lastly, we were given a site in the Devils Den area. We asked for clarification on what the tank sites were. We were assured that they were the same as a sewer site but just above ground. When it came time to empty our black and gray water tanks, it was a pain in the butt to say the least. We would not pick a site like this one again. This campground would be great if you have no children or plan to spend very little time at the campground. Pick a regular sewer site as opposed to one of the tank sites. We stayed here for 4 nights. - CWG Wife

Not a bad campground, but not great. We camped here next to friends in their pop-up as a shake down for the coming summer. The campground was clean and fairly quiet even though it is just off of Rte15 highway. There was some occasional road noise, but not too often. Lots of seasonal sites as well as an attached mobile home park. Other campers were friendly, as was the camp staff. The pool is large. The mini golf course was old but neat looking, though not yet open for the season. Large clubhouse was showing its age as well. Bathrooms and showers were clean. I could get WiFi at the site but it was an up charge. Would stay again. Rate reflects a free night's stay. - Cyclonic
