7 Parks near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

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

We stayed 5 days at a campsite with full service although we only needed water electric and cable. Nicely treed level lots. Sites and roads have processed stone and very little grass. Pitching a tent would be difficult. There is no real side privacey. We didn't use the pool due to our schedule but it appears adequate with separate hot tub. Things I didn't like was the site given to us on Confederate Dr was near RT 15 which was noisey all night. They rent golf carts and have a curfew of 10 pm but is not enforced. The store and pavilion hours are 9 am to 9 pm. If I come again I would stay to the rear of the store and the highway noise is quit loud at times. - niftysixty

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

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

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

Some of the roads are pretty tight for a larger rig. Not all sites are level - we saw several motorhomes with wheels off the ground. We had to drive up on blocks in order to get level. Wifi was very weak and slow where we were, although it was pretty good up by the office. No cable was a surprise, and we weren't able to get many channels using the antenna. On some of the sites you may need extra hoses for fresh water, as some of the water spigots were in unusual places. - tanstaafl

The park was a very nice place to stay. The employees that work there are so friendly and knowledgeable about the surrounding area. We stayed for three nights on trip points from Coast to Coast. When in Pa we will stay there again. It is one mile to the Battlefield and the trolly ride is free to the battlefield. - Walter Pfiitze

Stayed here two nights in July and one night in August on Coast to Coast reservations. Pull-thru sites. One FHU and the other W/E. One near the office was narrow and required leveling boards. The other was in the lower park, wide and level. This park is busy and the spaces near the entrance are subject to considerable noise from the coming and going of others. We will stay here again, but probably just for overnights. - Alworth

Over priced for the sites and amenities, which is typical for parks in tourist towns. This park is no different. Not big rig friendly with tight narrow roads and trees that get in the way when your trying to back in. Not many 50 amp sites so we had to settle for 30amps. Gravel pads which will require some leveling. Also hook-up are not the best laid out which required me to run 30' of sewer hose and another 30' of water hose. The desk host that I dealt with was friendly and helpful, but the guy next to him was rude and very condescending to other customers. Also, no one showed me to my site. They did have 24 hour security. - Msubulldawgnwaco

We have stayed at this park several times. Our site was a level back in, in the sundeck area. Power and water were both good. There is no shade in this area. They had some family activities including a d.j pool party, hayrides, crafts, etc..We will stay again. - mahill526

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

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

We really enjoy Granite Hill and go back every April as our first stop during camping season. We were there this year during their Chili Cookoff and really enjoyed ourselves. The staff is always very friendly and everything is always clean.
Be weary of the mud in some spots, but in April that is really just par for the course. - Katie219

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 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
