23 RV Parks near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

The staff was friendly and generally helpful. However, the sites are literally on top of each other. The site we were assigned (E79) wasn't particularly level and had no shade what-so-ever. It was also right behind the main dumpster. At least while we were there, the campground was packed on the weekend. The camp store was well-stocked and useful. Good game room and playground for the kids, as well as a pool (didn't use it, but it seemed nice). Not a bad location for visiting Gettysburg, but we will likely check out other options on a return trip to the area. On a related note, we do not recommend the "Spirit of Gettysburg" attraction for which the campground gives free tickets. We thought the "fun house" approach to an event in which thousands of men died (Picket's Charge) was offensive to the memory of those soldiers on both sides who gave all. On the other hand, we HIGHLY recommend hiring one of the licensed battlefield guides for a personal tour of Gettysburg. The cost for our entire family to have a personal guide was less than the cost of going on a group tour. The tour was a highlight of our trip. - AF_Pilot

Staff very friendly and provided a great deal of information about the area. Especially useful was time required for the various venues. Used Passport America, $30/night included tax. Pool was spotless. Store seemed complete. Sites are fairly tight, typical of an older campground. But we got our bus conversion in the site without a problem. - Bill w/bus

Arrived in rain. CG couldn't help this. Said could accommodate big rigs. Put 8 Big Rigs in lower mud hole. New owners have had it for 6 years with no improvements. Area is full of pot holes filled with water. If get even slightly off gravel, you'll be in mud or stuck. Some places small gravel dumped but not packed so RV sunk into gravel holes. Worst CG have been in in some 20 yrs of RVing. Will not return. - trims

The site was a mudhole. The roads highly confusing and once down a lane, hard to turn the rig. Most sites are Park models or trailers, so there is little choice. - DustyBob

Trying to stay near Frederick MD, my usual favorite campgrounds were booked. Weekends in Oct are popular and we booked late, but we were able to get in here. I see why now. This campground is very tight, there were trailers within inches of the roads/stop signs throughout, and its a very uneven campground with all kinds of hills and valleys. The roads are very narrow bumpy paved, some gravel. Most of this place you can hear trucks thundering by, as its really almost right next to Rt 15. It is also full of permanent sites with sheds and junk thrown around. The "bathhouse" was a little tiny building, looked like cabin, 2 bathrooms, 2 showers. No hot water in one, and no paper towels to dry your hands except for the am we left. The only dumpsters were at the entrance and we were far from that. Glad we weren't staying a long time, would have had to keep hauling trash in our car. The only thing good about this campground is it's close to Gettysburg, but so are several other campgrounds. Glad we checked it out, but will never stay here again. - letsgorving

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

As others have said, this is a large park. We camped during Fathers Day weekend & it was crowded. There is a large section for "seasonal" campers who leave their RV at the campground for the year & visit it intermittently. We were assigned a large space (#410) recently vacated by a "seasonal" camper. This back in site has level gravel, easy access to hook ups, shady on one side, more than enough space for our Class A, 45' motorhome & tow vehicle. Note: It backs up to the interstate, so noise is constant. Dust on the roads from vehicles & golf carts passing by was annoying. There are a couple of tight turns to get to this area of the campground. We unhitched at the office & drove to the site to preview our route & turns to get to this site. We also found our route out prior to moving our RV out of the campground. Again, there is a variety of tight turns, wide turns, & narrow roads to leave the park. For the rate we paid, we will probably not return. These park owners need to visit a Florida "resort" to understand what the term "resort" means. Its not just about having a pool & playground. Our site was pretty clean, probably because of the recent change from seasonal. However we walked by several sites that were full of weeds & generally not manicured to the level you would call "resort". Several RVs required leveling blocks for them to be close to level. - 2SimsNanRV

This is a very large campground. We had a pull-thru "premium" site in the back section. We have stayed at this campground many times over the years and I still haven't figured out the difference between the so called premium sites and standard sites with the same hookups and size other than cost. Our site was level side to side and good sized. The hookups were easily accessed. The gravel roads need work. Also, the gravel they use is extremely dusty when dry and almost like cement paste when wet. It gets on everything! This is a huge detraction. The campground is well located for Gettysburg and surrounding areas. The value for cost is barely satisfactory. There are other comparable local campgrounds that are less expensive. - hunter7258

We stayed near the back of this camp ground to reduce the amount of noise from Route 15 - and it made a difference. The site was nice and spacious -did need a little work to level. Campground is large and we did not rent a golf cart or use the pool. There were plenty of sponsored activities planned that weekend so there were things for adults and kids to participated. This is the third time we have stayed at Drummer Boy and my first review. We would come back again. - dadseven

Unfortunately, due to rain and being assigned to a "grassy" site, I almost got stuck in mud! Luckily, was able to get out of the mess, but the whole campground was a muddy mess. I didn't know I"d be there during a bluegrass festival, so staff was more concerned about dealing with that then trying to service other customers. Lots of other campgrounds in the area I would have used if I had known. - Ronzo Rig

Location is why you would come to this park. It is very near Gettysburg and an easy drive in. The pool was closed for the season when we stayed, but the campground had lots of room for kids to play. We stayed in the Pull Thru spots near the entrance (B1 - B10) and they were only ~1" out of level. I did walk around and see many site further up the hill were way out of level (5" - 7", based on blocks under tires). - JFB1

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

We called to make a reservation (for a weekend) a few days ahead and all they had was a 30 amp with no sewer, which we were able to work with, as it was located in a wooded, shady section. The (pull-thru) site was kind of tight to get into, but actually kind of spacious once we got into it. No way to get in without disconnecting the car, which we do anyway. The office and grounds staff were professional and helpful. The campground was crowded on the weekend, but everybody was polite and quite. There is a lovely creek that runs the perimeter of the grounds (sites are adjacent to it, but you can still walk up in some areas). Seems to be a lot of activities for kids. Bathrooms were clean but in real need updating (parts held together by multiple layers of grout, missing and cracked tiles, etc.) Very close to all of Gettysburg activities. It is all stones - very little grass (the grass in the pics is all growing up through the stones) - at least paved roadways would have been nice. We would recommend this campground. There are a lot of different areas in the campground, thus if you have shade or no shade preferences, be sure to ask when you book! - Deb and Chris

As one of the closest campgrounds to Gettysburg, its convenience is second to none. Roads and sites within the campground are gravel. There are a variety of sites (back-in and pull-through): some are spaced VERY close together, with utilities overlapping into the next site; some have utilities placed very far behind the site, necessitating extension cords to reach power; still others are nicely laid out and have new concrete patios. There are also cabins available for rent. Definitely try to verify what you are getting when making your reservation. That being said, check-in was smoothly accomplished by very friendly office personnel and we drove to our back-in site...long, but very narrow. This is a sizable campground, with a large recreation hall and a huge activity field centrally located. The campground abounds with family activities, including movie nights. The swimming pool, mini-golf, and shuffleboard are located at the front of the park. Marsh Creek flows along one side and behind the park...prone to flooding in times of consistent rain...necessitating the evacuation of the park. Park personnel and owners diligently monitor the creek/flooding situation, and if needed, notify guests, giving all plenty of time to leave. If ever in the area again, we would return to this campground...however in a different site. - HRTravelers

Not first time in Gettysburg, but first time for us staying at the Gettysburg Campground. Check in was easy with plenty of room to unhook our toad. During our stay the temps were diving down past freezing, the cg had signs up and made sure to remind us that they would be shutting off the water a night (They went out of their way to make sure everyone knew this would occur and were great about it) Our site was along the stream that borders the property and was very nice and spacious. The cg is located right on the outskirts of the driving tour and was able to use it as a home base to tour the Gettysburg area. We would easily be able to recommend this cg if you are in the Gettysburg area. - SJEAGLES609

Nice park and close to Gettysburg NP. Utilities were good except wifi was very weak at our site. New gravel has been put on many of the roads and they are in good shape compared to our last visit a few years ago. - RayN

The campground is clean as were the showers. We have been here before and really liked it. The staff is great and really friendly. Some of the dog breeds they allow are a concern even though they have a leash at all time requirement. We did not want our small dog in with the very large and barking dogs in the pet area. One thing that detracts from this campground is the derelict campers parked at the storage area near the pet walk and the derelict campers up at the business near the entrance of the campground. Also a detraction, there appears to be some campers which may be workers/permanent residents that are unkempt sites. While the site was just long enough for our 36' fifth wheel, there was not enough area for our truck. We had to park in the back of the fifth wheel and were partly in the road. - sassien24502

We arrived late at night. Found our registration in the late arrival holder outside the office. As we arrived at our site some fellow campers came over to aid in backing into the site at night. Nice shaded site with full hook ups. Very helpful staff in and outside the office. Large clean pool was very inviting after walking around Gettysburg all day. Overall a great stay. - Bower72

This is your old fashion KOA - a destination family park: kinda rustic, kinda modern, kinda quaint and very woodsy. Staff very helpful and friendly. We had a problem with enough voltage to run our ac (site 24). They found a site that had plenty of power and we moved. This is not only an entertaining destination but a place to stay while visiting a very popular historic sight: Gettysburg National Military Park. They serve very reasonably priced and delicious breakfasts on the weekends. - Roger H.

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
Aug 2017 - $26.00
Mostly small no hookup sites, roughly 20 with power. Roads okay. Many sites far from level. Great pool for an extra $4 a head. We were here on a Sunday night in early August, many open sites. Ok for a stop over, longer if you have kids. Bathrooms very dated, in need of maintenance and a lot of tlc. I'd stay here again, but not on a weekend. - padlin00

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

$32 for 30 amp, no water, no sewer. I was reluctant to pay it, but nothing else nearby seemed better. The roads are very, very tight. Many sites long enough for our coach would be impossible to back into due to trees, large rocks and narrow roads. About half the loop is closed to dogs, even dog walking. That really is obnoxious in my view. No ATT, no OTA TV. Sites are all gravel, partially or fully shaded, fairly level. #35 was easy access because the dump station driveway is right across from entrance. Showers were hot but had to press a button every 20 seconds to keep water flowing. Appalachia trail Museum and the camp store were closed during the week; season doesn't start until mid-May. - bobcovey

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
Oct 2017 - $40.00
Beautiful scenery here, convenient to Gettysburg and Harrisburg. The playground and creek were nice for the kids. Honestly, the main reason for the average rating is the amount of seasonal/permanent residents. Many RV's were old and their sites were dirty...it left me feeling very unsafe. Also, the sites are extremely close. We only had a neighbor for one night, but while we did, I could rest my back on his RV while sitting at our picnic table. We won't return. - lg_77

If this park wasn't almost 10 miles I would give it a 9, and if it had been mowed, a 10. Good OTA TV channels, electric and good water pressure. We didn't have sewer at our site, but there are 3-4 dump stations very conveniently located as you leave the park....or I read they have a honey wagon that comes twice a week. There were a lot of amenities, but the pool was closed when we got there. The lot we had wasn't officially a pull through, but we pulled into one to get to our lot, and the lot was huge. It's very pretty there. There is a weak looking bridge you have to drive over with your rig to get to your sites, but the clerk assured me that big rigs do it every day. It was very quiet at night, even though we crossed over a train track close to the park. Pretty trees and a nice little store too. Looks like a place we might come back to and stay if we weren't in a hurry to get home. Lots to do if you have kids. Wifi was weird...worked for a short while then you would have to pay. Even when adding site and password it kept saying OOPS when we tried to get back on. New picnic tables were nice. - Ginny H

We found this park to be a really nice place especially for campers with kids. There is a creek that all the kids loved to tube down. Plenty of activities, mini golf, large pool, hay rides and music on Saturday night. The store is very nice and fully stocked with lots of things a camper might need. Hand dipped ice cream! The only issue you should be aware of is if there is a lot of rain, the campground will flood in spots and be very muddy and soggy in others. We have almost 4 inches of rain on Friday night Our site seemed to weather it well but others had puddles that lasted through Sunday. Some of the tent campers had to vacate their spots and others got stranded by water surrounding their tents. There are a lot of seasonal campers here too. Most sites are water and electric. A honey wagon will pump you out for about $13. There are few 50 amp sites. Its a really great location in spite of the rain issues. I'm sure we will be back! - Karen Fredrickson
