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 .
Although the campground has a great location and has kids activities, I probably will not return as the staff never smiled and spent most of the time harassing the adults about noise, speed limits, where to park bikes and charging for everything including the kids. Unless you don't mind a campground charging you for kids, and plan on going to bed by 10:30, don't bother going. But for those who do, this place will suit you fine.
The campsites on the hill were private and spacious and worth going for alone, if you didn't have any intention of going down to the main campground area. The seasonals have totally taken over the main campground, and it looks like a red neck who can out do who.Other than the privacy of the campsites the other pluses are the employees were nice and friendly, the site was level and no problems with water and electric. We would go again in the fall for the wooded feel of the sites in the back.
We had a great time at the campground, nice, level and roomy spots. Took the advice from someone on this website and camped on Lakeview Circle and they were right, very nice location with the Lake right behind us. The playground was small and no activities when we went but the Amusement Park keeps you busy. Knoebels Amusement Park was a lot of fun and affordable. Pick the route to the area carefully, we came in from the east which was very hilly and left to the west and was a much better way home to York Pa.
Nice campground, clean with lots to do in and around the campground. The campground has something going on about every weekend. Gettysburg offers a glimps at the Nations formation and has nice places to eat in town. I would recommend staying around the pond as that is a little more roomy and less traffic noise from Rt. 15.
Friendly staff, but that was about it for me. We stayed in the front of the campground it was too crowded and a lot of traffic noise all night. Campground was clean and has a large play area for the kids. Would not revisit.
