Sites are a good size, and shady. Park location is great for touring battlefields and visiting the museum. WiFi is poor, and park can be very smokey as campfires are allowed. We camped at Gettysburg / Battlefield KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed in site #68, to the left when you enter the campground. We were in the water/electric section, and saw mostly other pop-ups, smaller RVs, and a few tents in our area. Our site was very spacious, beautifully landscaped and wooded, but right next to the road. There was a buffer of trees, but unfortunately that didn't make much of a difference with regard to noise. I live adjacent to a busy local highway, and the noise was worse here at the CG, even though this road seemed like a smaller, rural road. There were vehicles loudly whizzing by at all hours of the day and night. If we were to return, we would definitely avoid sites 65 through 69, as they all back up to that same road. Site 74 in the same section caught our eye as being very private, tucked away, and backing thick woods, so we would request that site for sure. The whole water/elec section was a bit further from the bath house than we usually like to be with little kids, but not a deal-breaker of a walk by any means. Bath house was decent. Showers were very nice and looked like they'd been updated recently, but the overall bathroom earned about a B- for cleanliness. It was kept reasonably tidy (other than the trash overflowing on one occasion), and the countertops stayed wiped off, but the whole bathroom (minus the showers) just seemed a bit old, drab, and didn't smell great. I know it's a bathroom, but this wasn't a one-time smell; it persisted throughout all 4 days of our stay. What impressed me most about this CG was the landscaping and use of natural surroundings. There are tons of really nice boulders everywhere, bordering each sites and most of the fire rings. The grounds are also very green and wooded, so it really does look and feel like a natural, rustic setting - much more so than any other KOA I've visited. We camped at Gettysburg / Battlefield KOA in a Tent Trailer.

You'll never lack for things to do in Gettysburg. Obviously, the national battlefield is a must-do. I'm not a history buff by any means, but I really enjoyed the auto tour, and was taken aback at how vast and beautiful the battlefield is, with varying scenery. I also highly recommend the nature hike within the campground!

Overall the campground was clean, quiet and staff and service were excellent but, we did experience over and under voltage's on our site first night camping. We thought at first it was our EMS surge protector and had the staff come to our site late Friday night and they replaced the 30 amp breaker and receptacle but the voltages were fluctuating all week. If you decide to stay here we would advise to have some protection between your rig and their electrical. We camped at Gettysburg / Battlefield KOA in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Gettysburg / Battlefield KOA in a Motorhome.

A park volunteer recommended an orientation at the visitor's center (Movie, Cyclorama, and Museum) before taking the driving tour. It was good advice as it established a framework for understanding the events at Gettysburg.

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.

After seeing a few of the other campgrounds around Gettysburg, we felt we had made a good choice by staying here. The amenities were excellent, plenty to do for kids, and easy access to laundry room which we used. Check in was quick and efficient, staff friendly. My only complaint was that there was no grass at all, just gravel. We had our elderly dog with us, and it was not practical to walk him down to the doggy walk area. They did have a nice pet playground, but we did not make use of it. We camped at Gettysburg / Battlefield KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Gettysburg / Battlefield KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Gettysburg / Battlefield KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Gettysburg / Battlefield KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Gettysburg / Battlefield KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here on a very rainy night. The campground is completely tree covered. Probably a relief in the summer, but dark and dank on a cold rainy night.

The bath houses were typical KOA - an out-building with a combined bath and shower room. All in all acceptable but not special or nice in the least.

Very handy to the Gettysburg Battlefield and convenient for our overnight trip here. We camped at Gettysburg / Battlefield KOA in a Motorhome.

Sites are well designed, with boulders separating. Bathrooms are clean and air conditioned. Borders an intrastate highway so stay away from the outer edge to avoid traffic noise. First time at a KOA so can't compare. Great for families as they have tons of amenities. 10 min from Battlefield and other historic sites.
