7 Parks near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania
Apr 2016 - $30.00
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

We always stay here for Memorial Day weekend. Its a pretty nice park. There are A LOT of permanent sites though. Over all it isn't the most nicely, neatly manicured park, but it is nice and the pricing is very reasonable! I do like it here! There is a pool, plus the horse stables. Lot spacing is nearby and mostly shady. Site surface is dirt, featuring a fire ring and picnic table. - Stevensmith2859

We stayed here in a 43 foot motor home for a couple of nights. The rate is 1/2 price with the PA discount.
We were placed in a pull thru section on the top of the hill and the site was open to receive satellite so I was happy, but truth be told its just a parking lot. Power was good, bathrooms were clean but noting special.
The best part of this park is its location. If you plan to visit the Gettysburg national park and the battle fields, it's right in the middle of them all. In my opinion there is no way this park is worth $58 per night. - Camping USA

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

Great park for family fun and activities. Staff are great, park is clean and love the layout. Kids can be loud early, so rise and shine. - R Fox

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 visited Gettysburg for 4 days and 3 nights to view the battlefields and the surrounding area. The KOA was a great campground. Our site was the deluxe pull-through. It had the nicest fire pit of any campground we've been to. There was a very nice double wide glider chair. And the picnic table was clean and sturdy metal with a rubber coating on the table top. The site was incredibly large and spacious. The site was all gravel. And it was very level and flat. The campground doesnt have a lot of kids activities like some KOA's, but it was very clean and well kept all the way around. There was a bath house somewhat near our site. And there was a bath house in the camp store building. They were clean and functional. The pool was nice. There was a small mini-golf that was not great. They had a nice deck over by the camp store with checkers games on the tables, and a giant chess set. There was a small playground. There was no jumping pillow. The camp store was nicely stocked. The staff was super duper friendly. The KOA was only a few minutes away from the Gettysburg battlefields and the town. Overall this campground is super nice, and we really enjoyed out stay there. We will go back next time we visit Gettysburg. - Brad K

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

I really wanted to like this place more. It has a lot of things going for it. The staff is the high point, super nice and very helpful. No complaints there. It's very nearby local attractions and is clean. I also like the amenities like a big beautiful pool.
But there were some issues. One is that if you want to have full hook ups including sewage you need to stay in the sites closer to the entrance. The issue is these sites are VERY tight. Literally on top of each other. The sites on the bottom are much more roomy but you can't get sewage. And here's the kicker, they charge you for honey wagon service. They lack the sewage and you have to pay extra because of it.
Also in this day and age it's time for all campgrounds to adopt WiFi to the sites. - Riot Pat

A wonderful campground with the most friendly staff around. They arranged for us to take a bus tour and gave us maps and help. We have a back in site with full hookups and 30 amp service. It was fairly quiet at night and people did respect the quiet hours. We would come back here again and will recommend it to others. - rolling homeless

We've visited almost all of the Civil War battlefields but Gettysburg was always a bridge too far. Sadly, we should have missed this one as well. All of the battlefield locations are being allowed to get back to nature. In many areas the grass is as high and the cannon barrel. Florida may be considered a tourist trap but it pales in comparison to Gettysburg. The cable was poor and the Wifi was decent. The campground is still handing out old, outdated area maps. The staff was friendly and the site was clean, but we left it cleaner. - Mr. Camper

Stayed here for four nights, and couldn't have been more pleased with the grounds, staff, amenities and cleanliness of the property. When we arrived, the owner drove me in a golf cart to preview our site, and when I expressed concern about the width (we have opposing side slide-outs), he checked their availability and moved us to a more accommodating site. And did so pleasantly, without making us feel like we inconvenienced them in any way. This was our first trip (been camping three+ years) in our camper for over 3 days, and we were really pleased that we chose Gettysburg Campground over the other choices. The camp store is nice, also, and sells hand-dipped ice cream, too! Everything at the property is well-kept and clean, every staff member we encountered was pleasant and helpful, there are no 'junk' seasonals on the property (junk seasonals are one of the reasons we usually avoid private-owned campgrounds...), and it's really close and convenient to downtown Gettysburg and the battlefield areas. OK, so there's only one thing, and it's one of those 'first-world problem' things: the cable signal could have used a boost, as the picture on the television was pretty fuzzy, I assume from being too widely distributed without boost. That's the only thing I can find that wasn't just spot-on. Thank you, Gettysburg Campground for an excellent experience! - fastalker64

Campground wasn't really open yet. Showers not available, but office was open. One night the owner locked the gate when my wife was out doing laundry. Had to leave truck at gate and haul laundry ~1/2 mile. Staff helpful. Looked like a lot of amenities when fully open. No water service: too early. Lot spacing is nearby with a sunny/open exposure. Site surface was gravel. - FrankRogers

This has always been one of my favorite parks, even going back to when I was a kid and went with my parents. My favorite site is B35. Some of the sites aren't perfectly level, BUT it is camping after all, so if you have a thing about having to add a block or two under some tires, then this isn't the place for you. They always have great activities planned and the camp store is great, so is the staff for that matter. I usually stay here twice a season and I never get tired of it! - Stevensmith2859

The site we had was extremely slanted. We could hardly level with our level up system. I would suggest a retainer wall to level the sites in that area. Very few full hookups. The overall appearance of this campground is average. The cable did not work at all. Some bathrooms need updating. I feel the price is unreasonable for what you are getting. - Creative Camper

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 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
