I have to agree with the above review. Very run down. Water hook-up leaking right onto an electrical box. My sewer hook up was a hole with no cap, almost couldn't find it. Stunk real bad too. Cable picture unwatchable with interference. Sights were confusing in most spots. Hard to tell exactly where you should set-up. Had 20+ college kids in tents across from us playing beer pong and blasting music until 1 AM. Camp store smelled horribly. Didn't bother looking in the bathrooms. Playground was in bad shape. Was nervous that the equipment would break. Pool was in OK shape. Be very careful with big rigs. Try not to arrive at night. HOWEVER, with all that said, we camped with 3 other couples and all of our sites backed up to each other so we all were close together and had a cozy central location for food, fire and sitting around. Spent most of the day in nearby Bethlehem. Great restaurants, nice shops, very walkable. Just an old steel town that preserved that old town feel. We camped at Quakerwoods Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Sorry a year late! I've stayed here twice. CG is the closest to the battlefield and as the name implies, Union cannons actually were stationed here. The Gettysburg Battlefield Diorama (on the CG site) was surprisingly great and well done. Sites and roads were gravel but well maintained when we were here. As far as horse manure mentioned by the above reviewer, YES! It's everywhere, but like the other reviewer said, it is a National Riding Stable and caters to those with horses. Battlefield Horse Tours also leave from here. Kind of like complaining of sand when you camp at the beach. Reminds you to do your homework before pulling into a CG. I didn't mind the horses or their waste for that matter, and I'm not a horse person. It's just a great CG for those who want to be close to the battlefield. It's not a resort like other CG's in the Gettysburg area but does it job nicely. We camped at Artillery Ridge Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I generally agree with the above reviews. However, our site backed up to a farm junkyard. Not all that horrible though. Worst part was hearing the traffic from Route 30. Truck traffic very loud. Would have preferred it a little more quiet. Great store and very clean park overall. Didn't have the kids on this trip so can't comment on being kid friendly or not. Did see an awful lot of kids smiling and playing though. Very convenient to shopping in Lancaster. Would probably stay there again but would choose a site farther from the road. We camped at Country Acres Campground in a Travel Trailer.
