21 RV Parks near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania
Jul 2017 - $30.00
Excellent location to explore Gettysburg and with the use of Passport America, the price was reasonable. It's not a value at the full price. Two caveats - the skimpy gravel pads at the sites don't reflect how RV's are built. When I placed my RV with slides relative to the the pedestal, I had to add blocks to raise the front 7 1/2 inches before I could start extending the levellegs. Two nearby sites were also that bad, and one rig had wheels off the ground. That could be fixed with proper grounds care. Do NOT use auto level in this park (well, we never do anyway). The second is TWO sets of parallel speed bumps on an angle that require you to cross a 1 MPH. I could not see the first set because it was a sunny day and they were hidden in the shade, before you stop to register. I politely explained to the staff that I paid $2000 to re-seat a windshield last year due to a campground pothole. Be cautious when entering. I would stay here again even with the above caveats. Just bring leveling blocks with you...I used all of mine, about 40, on this site. - cherib

This park was a fine choice for a big rig. They have an extensive horse boarding / trail rides/stables operation. The original campsites are older, shorter and in the trees. There is a new section that is out in the open with long, long pull throughs that are reasonably level. OK - this is rustic - just a gravel base and lots of green grass. No patio, no curbs, just some long sites in a field with full hookups, and a picnic table. The satellite works and the Verizon signal is OK. For us, this was GREAT - a great value using Passport America, and a great location. There was a pool here, and some other activities for kids, so it was reasonably family friendly. - MerBee

This is a nice campground. Nothing fancy, but everything worked on our FHU, wifi was excellent, picnic table was the best we've had this year! Lots of horses, but no odors detected. Quiet and spacious site. Very convenient to downtown Gettysburg. They do have a pool, laundry and mini golf. Lots of stuff going on to entertain kids. We camped here in a 40' motorhome with truck tow. - Lucky Lady from Florida

Our site is right beside a major highway. We were NOT told that at the time of reservation (in my opinion this should be disclosed at time of reservation).
Prior to arrival and at time of reservation I asked if sites are level multiple times! I was told yes. Get here, front wheels are off the ground. I asked to move sites. So they gave me 3 other options. All too short for us and even more unlevel (for our 40 foot motor home). I see at least 20 sites that would have worked for us that are open, and have been open our entire stay.
Most sites are not level.
Grounds are un-kept. Grass is up to my shin. Were told their lawn mower is not working (no excuse in, my opinion when one can hire landscaping help).
Sewer connections are uphill; therefore not draining properly.
Bathhouse is not air conditioned or heated, not even ventilated. Semi clean.
Some permanent sites are unattractive ("junky"). Others are well-kept.
Had to pay in-full at time of reservation, no refunds. Now I see why! Lesson learned!
Thankfully we are out and about being tourist and not at the CG often. We will not return. Found several other campgrounds nearby that looked like a better fit for us. - JohnsonFam

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 camped here with friends who have a seasonal site. This is a very large park! You will either need to bring or rent a golf cart here, over a mile long. Very large easy to navigate sites. We camped in the "front section" and the only thing you can hear is Highway 15 running right by! You will most certainly want a site in the back. Also, there was a slight noticeable sewer odor at times. Overall, the location is within easy distance of all Gettysburg has to offer. Very friendly staff, seasonal campers very nice, and park has alot to offer. Good internet and cell service. We will return. - Chieftain1986

We were in a pull thru at the back of this very large park. Hook ups worked well and were placed well. WI FI was non existent in our section, a call to the office explained they were having internet issues. There was a lot of trash left in our site from previous campers. Cable worked well.Themed activities were well thought out. We will stay again. - mahill526

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

If I had young kids the $59 they charge might be worth it as they have a pool, ball field/courts, horseshoes, a fishing pond, nice fast food café and ice cream. But $59 for me is way too much. This is an older park and it is showing its age. Showers were not clean and needed repairs. Toilet/sinks were OK but room needed some repairs. I could never figure out the shower water controller so my water temp was always on the hot side. Take a look inside the laundry room and you will see years of plumbing repairs. Most drive thru sites in my area were uneven so bring your leveling blocks/wood. Site signage almost nonexistent. I had to drive around until I found mine. Park is huge, a former farm. It has several separate sites so it is not crowded. Mature trees in my area. Overpriced for the rate they charge. Electric is above ground (this tells you this is an old park). It was convenient to Gettysburg though so it met our location needs. Roads between sites were tight, mostly one car wide. Would not stay there again. - Camden12

PROS: Beautiful setting outside Gettysburg. Easy entrance and short trip to Gettysburg. Outstanding setting and good amenities. We hope to come back someday during one of the twice-yearly Bluegrass festivals. Nice stage. Lots of different camping sections. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is that the bathroom was not very clean when I used it. Also, dim and unheated, with shower temp at lukewarm. Brrr. - Paul and Jeannette

We enjoyed the location of this campground, the many playgrounds and the staff was super friendly. The restrooms/bath houses were older, so probably hard to get a nice clean look/feel. They're useable, but not as nice as many others we've been to. The kids loved playing putt putt. We'll definitely come back! - pw77

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
Aug 2016 - $1.00
Told that full hook-up sites were not available to visiting ROD members; no cable and no satellite reception on original 30 Amp site which was f to a 50 amp water/ 50 amp site. Next to us was a pop-up camper n a 50 amp site and an extension cord to a 20 Amp outlet!! This while motor homes were being assigned to 30 amp; non-level sites (there were several of us). - Happy Motorhomers

We had a very large, shady, pull through site. The staff was very helpful. The dog run was pretty large and clean. It's a short drive to the historic Gettysburg sites. - JCJ1

Love this campground but my only complaint was: My husband is hiking the AT and I drop him off at 7:00 in the morning. This is the first campground that charged me early arrival. Kinda cheesy I thought. We have stayed at campgrounds now from Georgia to PA and this is the only one that has charged me an early arrival of $25.00. - Lynn Barlow

This the third time we have camped in the Gettysburg area and this, by far, is the nicest campground (we camped at Drummer Boy twice before). With only about 70 sites, it is small enough to not feel crowded but has all of amenities you would expect at a larger campground. It was not difficult to get my 5th wheel into the campground or back in, and we were escorted to our site by staff. The bathrooms are some of the best we have seen; trash is picked up daily right from our site. The only downside to this campground is the WiFi leaves alot to be desired, if that is important to you. We would camp here again. - dadseven

This is a family owned Campground and it shows. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is a nice pool and well maintained mini golf course. The dog area was not fenced. Our site was spacious and open, which we prefer for satellite reception. There are quite a few permanents. - Tennis gal

Great park with just as good staff, all very friendly and helpful. Site large enough for our class 8 truck, 42' 5th wheel and Smart car. Was here for a rally with 41 other units. Some sites looked close together but on the awning side was where all the room was which was nice. Very busy campground and probably one of the most popular ones in the area. - DBLR

Our previous stay at Gettysburg Campground was in July of 2011. The park is essentially unchanged; a little bit of maintenance (fresh paint) would help appearances. Sites needed to be raked to get rid of small twigs & branches that had fallen out of the trees. Campground is still VERY well-managed. Example: There was significant rain the last night of our stay and in the morning there were a fair number of sites that had standing water in them. The campers that had arrived over the previous two days had all been assigned to sites that were still dry! A good selection of shaded sites. Staff very personable and campground store adequately stocked with food, supplies, RV items, and souvenirs. This campground is our top choice in the area, and we will return. - RamWagon

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

This is a great park for visiting the Gettysburg/Harrisburg/Hershey area. Very rustic, huge sites, lots of trees. The AT museum is in the park which is very interesting. During the week, there is very few people in the park. Weekends pick up a bit, but you don't feel crowded and noise level is still very good. We will definitely stay here again when in the area. - lc47

30Amp only; no water. We were able to reserve a site across from a water spigot. There are only 3 spigots in the park. Restrooms appear modern and well kept from outside. Site was large and quiet. Entrance road is narrow, long and curvy. Roughly 6 miles from I-81. Far too costly for electric only, hence the 6 rating. - singpj

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

Nice park, everything worked as advertised. Grass site by the river was W/E only but they do have a pump-out service. Pump out service twice a week. I think it was $13. Site was grass, level, and huge! Campground was very full with several groups arranging their rv's to set up party areas. I loved it and made some new friends but others may like a little more privacy and quiet. Once the weekend was over things really calmed down.
One warning: the bridge over the creek scared most of us with large motorhomes. There are no signs about weight rating and I almost wasn't going to cross it. I spoke to two other families in large class A's and they said the same thing. Would help if there was at the bridge advising about weight rating. Nice store, pool, and mini-golf. - z32k12

Really enjoyed camping at this campground. The people that worked there couldn't of been nicer or more helpful. Large beautiful pool, clean showers and restrooms. Clean Laundry Room. Near Pine Grove Furnace and the AT. - Lynn Barlow

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
