This is a good close spot just down the road from National Cemetery and Visitors Center. If you want to just hang out at camp, you have your fire and radio. Internet was so bad, I would say NO internet. We were 30 yards from office and only got online for 10 mins a day. Also avoid being right next to main camp rd, can be noisy with dog walkers and vehicles. Overall would stay here again if I had my own hotspot and Satellite. - phnz1

Very pleasant and helpful staff. EXCELLENT proximity to Gettysburg attractions. Our site was by the horse pens so our view out the window was of a beautiful rolling countryside and beautiful horses grazing. They also have many campsites that are surrounded by tress if that's your desire. On premises horseback riding stables if you want to tour the battlefields on horseback. We had a very radiant stay here and would come back again. A bit expensive. - BigGuy82

I stayed for three nights. The park was clean and pleasant. I thought the price was high for what it is, but I recognize that it's in a tourist attraction, which was why I was willing to pay it. It was perfectly located to tour Gettysburg - the NPS Visitor Center is very close to the campground.
The staff in the store/registration area were friendly and helpful.
The wifi was terrible, and there was no cable TV.
The showers were exceptionally clean. The washers and dryers were plentiful and reasonably priced.
I would definitely recommend it and would stay here again if I wanted to tour the Gettysburg National Military Park. - CamperChris4

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

Stayed 3 nights here, beautiful park with great sites and lots to do. Pull through easy with lots of room for slides. Nice to not camp on top of other rigs. Love this site.
Lots of activities in the park for all. A little pastry, fresh vegetable cart came by with lots of fresh corn, onions, zucchini and homemade pies to buy, just wonderful. - D'art campizard

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

Great Park. Shaded sites, Very clean restrooms and grounds. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Easy commute to restaurants, grocery stores, and Gettysburg Battlefield National Park. Definitely would stay there again. - Bobster43

Gettysburg is a busy place and the nightly cost reflects that situation. Site wasn't very level and maxed out my landing pads. Nice and quiet and no major complaints. - senator47

I was was extremely dissatisfied by this campground especially for the money. We were parked in an open field with no road or pad with water and electric only for $49.00 on weekends and $44.00 Monday through Thursday.
The young lady that directed us to our site apparently never walked or drove the property. She directed us to use a road that did not lead to our site and was not fit for motorhomes. Actually most of the interior roads are very poorly maintained and few are worthy to drive on with a car much less a motorhome or trailer.
The restrooms are very old and as poorly maintained as the roads in the campground. They may have been as clean as can be expected but smelled old and musty.
The fact that they have bands on occasion does not excuse the poor condition of the property. We would never stay here again. There are too many other options. - TexL23

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 accidentally got in a bad spot so I can't really speak on that. The place is "ok" I guess. The people who work there are nice enough but they didn't have ice and some other things. There was no real space for the dogs but there were some trails in the woods - full of seeds that stuck all over the place. The internet worked well. - Candalee

Told us coast to coast members could not have full hookups. We had to share a site with my sister. Shared the water and elect. Again, no septic. Site not level, but long. - KGail

This is a members only facility. The restrooms are mold covered and smelly. Not nearly enough full hook up sites. Very limited hot water in the showers. Stay away from the sales pitch. - Aidens Nannie
Oct 2016 - $64.00
Very rustic campground with plenty of woods around the sites. We had a premium site that was a back in. The site was a good size and was positioned so views of our neighbors was limited. Hookups were in good places. The patio was very nice with newer table and chairs and a nice sliding double chair.
Roads were a little tight for bigger rigs but we still got in and out with no problems.
Very good location for visiting Gettysburg city and park. - John Borajkiewicz

Gettysburg KOA is located about 10-15 minutes away from Gettysburg attractions. Entry road is very small, upon arrival there was a backup of other rv's and vehicles trying to check in on a Friday afternoon; had to unhook TOAD on roadway as there was not enough room to disconnect inside campground with others arriving to check in. The site were given when we booked was changed to another site upon our arrival. Site 6 was very narrow, but level gravel base. Verizon signal was not good at all at the campground, trees blocked satellite signal, hook ups were all very close. If you have a tall rig stay away from site 6 as the electric running over head was low on this site. Roads in the campground were very narrow. Many of things for kids to do in the park including bounce pillow, large connect four and jenga, and were able to rent pedal cars. - SJEAGLES609

We picked the KOA over the other campground in town because of stellar reviews. Nope, fooled again. I wouldn't say that this is a bad KOA, there was just nothing special about it. When we made the reservation a few months ago we requested a deluxe patio site, and one that was not too heavily treed. Well we didn't get either when we showed up. It turns out that there are only 3 patio sites in the park, and all are long term seasonal people. And there is no such thing as a "lightly treed" site in the park either. The whole park is kind of "tropical" looking with large trees blocking out the sun (and breeze) and foliage between most of the sites. Kind of a good thing/bad thing kinda feature is that the whole park is heavily graveled, which keeps the dust down. The bad part is that every car or person that passes by the rig sounds like they are going to drive right into the living room. Getting to the park is a bit dicey as Knox road is on a blind corner. So making a left onto Knox road requires a great deal of attention to any traffic that may suddenly appear. Our deluxe site ($60.00 a night) was FHU and came with a new glider style rocking chair, and a fire pit (the 90 degree days insured that it was not going to be used). Our Verizon air card struggled to get signal among the heavy trees, but it was still miles ahead of the free Wifi offered by the park. In fact their campground brochure stated "the Wifi may not be reliable, but it is free". That usually means a small personal size router in the office with a guest channel. One positive of this park is due to its location, the nights were dead quiet. The upper bathroom was handicapped accessible, but getting there through the gravel would have been a chore. Satellite was also impossible from anywhere in the park so we reverted to cable. Unfortunately the cable signal had most likely been split so many times that all the channels were fuzzy at best. There are better places to stay in the area. - SargeW

We stopped here on a busy Columbus Day weekend and an apple fest in the area and they squeezed us in last minute with our small trailer. Nice staff in the office, clean bathhouse. Our site was large, wooded, with a fire pit. Even though there were many campers there it was surpringly quiet. Firewood was dry and a good deal. - Patnal

We stayed here for the 5TH annual Mid-Atlantic Titanium Rally. We always enjoy our stay here. On Saturday an Amish vendor tours the park in the afternoon with vegetables and pastries for the campers to purchase.. The staff is easy going and quite helpful. A honey wagon makes the rounds daily to evacuate the holding tanks of campers in need for $8.00. There is much to do in the area with countless attractions, tours, & historic sites to choose from. - SCClockDr

This was our first camping experience so we don't have much to compare it to. We were in site 111 on a Friday and Saturday night. We had no immediate neighbors. All the sites in our area had at least a few trees. Everyone was very respectful of quiet hours. The roads are rather narrow but we saw some pretty large 5th wheelers navigate them without much effort. The opposite end of the campground was more family oriented and much more crowded. We will definitely be back as this is an easy weekend get-away for us. We will look for a creek-side site in the same area next time. - BeagleDad

Older state park, in need of updating. Only a few sites are adequate for size 32 and larger, and those tend to be closer together...the ones near the bathhouse are very close together. Electric only. Water near the dump station, but placed in an awkward place. Also water near the bathhouse...if you have enough hose! We used the camp as a cost effective way of visiting Gettysburg NMP. The camp host was exceptionally outgoing and represented the park well. - tom&kathryn

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. - fulltime5er

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

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

Spacious, friendly staff, and quiet. We were here November 1, 2017, so the Fall colours surrounded us. Close to Gettysburg. Camp staff were super helpful in advising how and where to get started in our exploration of Gettysburg. Totally loved this campground. - dave398rls

Large park with an obvious following. The weekend we were there it was packed. We were given one of the last sites available for our size rig. Services were on the wrong side so we had to get closer to our neighbours than we like; no room for picnic table. Site was level, no problems backing in. Did not have sewer but the park had an excellent dump station.
There are some really nice sites for those who plan more in advance than we did.
Park is a nice 30 minute drive from Gettysburg. Lots of orchards & markets along the way. - Our-Wandering-Casa

This is one of the busiest parks we have ever stayed in. There are more children than we've ever seen in an RV park. That is probably due to the fact that they have children activities every weekend of the summer. We were given a slot for one night on a Friday even though they required three night minimum. And we had to except 30 amp since they were so full. The park was quiet even with all the campers. Easy access to the park and very handy to Gettysburg. Well-kept park with every amenity a child could want. And they really pack the campers in. - durham4926
