Didn't seem that this campground was very well taken care of. Now, I know that it has been raining quite a bit around the area, but then it may be best to close those areas off rather than stack all the campers in there like they did and people getting stuck. So many ruts everywhere! Cost, I thought, was extremely high for what you got - not much and just seemed dirty. A shame as it is close to many attractions, but there are certainly much better campgrounds in the area on Rte. 116 too. Just thought that with a name like Granite Hill Camping RESORT you would think differently - it certainly is NOT a resort. Although maybe if you are part of the Blue Grass Festival, that is extremely over the top advertised everywhere, it may be good, but we will not be recommending this campground to anyone for anything!!! Tremendous disappointment!! - Happy Camper2009

The grounds are not well-maintained. The grass is not mode. The playgrounds are extremely old and covered in rust. The bathrooms are dirty and full of bugs and mildew. The pool is falling apart and full of cracks and in bad need of repair. They are charging the rates of a very nice resort however they lack to maintain the overall campground. And they're only name to fame is the large bluegrass festival but they have one weekend a year. For the price that you pay and the way that there are sites are laid out there are much better values in the Gettysburg Pennsylvania area right down the road. This campground has the potential to be very nice and I think it was at one point in time but in the past several years it has really fallen by the wayside and is not as nice as related to the price that you actually paid to stay here. Water pressure was terrible all weekend long even when I route moved my pressure reducer. - Lspajm

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

Lots of rain and leaves, but that is this time of year. Park was small and seemed quaint and like being in a forest. Laundry facilities were ok. We were in sight number was 53 which was a great pull thru site. The staff was very helpful on what tours to take of Gettysburg. - Vipermanden

Walk-in for std pull-thru site for 3 nights. We were placed in site 15. FHU with good connections. Site was just big enough for our 30ft. motorhome with tight space to park car in front. We had to unhook the tow dolly and tuck the tongue under the RV to fit in the site. Park is pretty with lots of trees and boulders setting the boundaries of the sites. Sites are tight and close to but trees provide privacy. This is NOT a park for big rigs as turns are tight although there are a couple of longer sites that are pull thrus that exit you onto a different road that could work. The office staff was great to make sure we were satisfied with the spot. - pmoke

When we arrived, we were immediately escorted to our site before checking in. They had a nice system to keep new arrivals from piling up on the entrance road because there wasn't much space to park and go into the office to register. The staff was very friendly and even waived a cancellation fee (!!!) when I had to cut my stay short by one day due to travel issues. As a previous review mentions, we were in the section of 65-69 and did have some traffic noise on the road behind the site but it wasn't that bad and we were eventually able to block the noise. The site I had was W/E only and was probably the most level gravel campsite I have been on, I did not require any leveling of my motorhome. This CG is very well maintained and they use the natural trees, landscaping and boulders for site borders and fire rings. The pool and activities area were modern and well maintained. The putt putt course even had civil war themed holes. The camp store had the basics for camping supplies and souvenirs. There are plenty of cabins and a nice section specifically for tents that have level pads. Most of the sites had the typical amount of space between sites, not overly spacious but not stacked on top of each other either. The restrooms and showers by the main office were nice and were clean each time I used them. This was one of the few KOAs that I actually did NOT have WiFi connectivity issues. There are tours available to both DC and Gettysburg. Overall, you can tell that this is a well cared for campground. I would stay here again. - Big P-Daddy

We stayed at GBR as part of a promotion when purchasing our camper. Even for free, it was a bad experience. Making allowances for the weather and time of year, the roads were gravel and strewn with potholes filled with water/ ice. The worst part is the sales pitch for the time-share. It wasn't as high-pressure as I expected, but they have zero respect for you and your time. The "gifts" were insulting and perhaps had a total value of zero (including an Olive Garden $10 gift certificate). And look hard at the paperwork. It shows a picture of a $50 Olive Garden gift certificate, but fine print reads "up to". 21 free camping nights turns out to be 5-6 nights and you will probably not get full hookup. Worst experience ever at a campgrounds. A more truthful invite might have read "waste a half a day and get insulted". Stay at one of the many decent Gettysburg campgrounds, skip this one. - deewalttoolguy

We stayed as part of a Promo for membership. Check in was pleasant & quick. We unhitched from our 45' motorhome to move thru the park to our site. Roads are a mix of narrow & wide streets & turns, but manageable. Some paved roads & gravel sites. Some sites are shady, some completely open. We had a camp volunteer lead us the best way to the site. Our pull thru was plenty long enough for our rig & parking our F150 tow vehicle. Wifi was pretty bad & kept popping me off, so I used my Verizon set up without problems. We had partial shade that blocked satellite reception, but sometimes shade is a nice tradeoff. Our site had elec & water only, no sewer. Fire ring & picnic table at each site. There is a "honey" truck that is available in the campground if needed. Pool, kids activities, fishing pond are available in the resort. On weekends there is a cannon firing reenactment. The park is located on the edge of the battlefield, a few min from downtown Gettysburg & the Visitors Center. Quiet at night, no trains or highway noise. There are a few areas where campers appear long term & their sites are cluttered. Gave site #200 three stars because no sewer available. The site was pretty level and in fair condition as far as the gravel. - 2SimsNanRV

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

We were here for a club camp out. Our club has used this CG for around 10 years. We've stayed here a couple times before on our own. The CG is a nice place to stay, no trains, no expressway. It is just outside of town with easy access to everything you might want to see and do. Our site was a back in, very close to level, gravel. We had a very heavy rain the day we arrived so there was some mud and while the sites were dry there was pooling water between them. This was not an issue for us. Since the temps were at or below freezing, we did not take advantage of the picnic table or fire ring. Since we were here as a part of our Club Camp out we had use of the Rec Hall. A very nice facility. They apparently have a hayride, although it was not in use this weekend that we saw. Pool obviously closed. Playground looked to be in good repair although we are past that stage. The store has a decent selection of camping needs. Two dump stations, propane at an attractive price. Easy to find. I have no issues recommending this CG. We will be returning both solo and with our club. About our rating. I actually would give this CG a 10 rating for being just that, a CAMPGROUND, only reason I didn't is that I feel some would mistake this level of rating as representing a Resort type of place. Gettysburg Campground is a Campground and as such it is VERY NICE and if there were a place to differentiate the tow, resorts and campgrounds, I would have done so and rated this CG a 10. - blues traveler

Superb CG. Well kept in every respect, huge pool but it was closed of course in October. Many of the regulars were in Halloween mode even though it was 2 weeks later: decorations, lights, and a candy trick or treat.
Friendly staff and fellow campers. Excellent amenities with dumpstations, pump out if needed, good roadways and plenty of room for our 30 footer.
I dislike timeshares and will never buy in, but we would go back to this CG some year if time and space permits. Nice cabins available too.
We enjoyed several ranger talks: all excellent, and those filled in all understanding we could take in. - Fredhogbristle

We stayed on site 227. It was a back in and Marsh Creek ran behind us. The campground was clean. Our site was a nice size. It was quiet and very relaxing. We had w&e. They have 2 dump stations, LP, bathrooms and a laundry room. I did not use any of these. If you have children, they have a pool, putt-putt and a small and very clean arcade room. We did play putt-putt, however did not use the pool. Didn't have the greatest weather. The one day it was nice, we went to Gettysburg Battlefield. We felt it was a great location, not far from Gettysburg Battlefield or Downtown Gettysburg. Some sites are closer together than other sites. They also have double sites you share,where one is a pull through and one a back in. We are going back again this fall. Couldn't get the site we had, however we are getting a corner site and it is another descent sized site. The owners are on site and very nice people. The store has the basic's for everyday use plus gifts and a snack bar. I would recommend staying here. - vacaaway

Terrible roads- narrow and winding- very confusing signage. Occupied sites are littered with cars, junk, etc. place is dirty! Only nice thing is pool which looks new! Too busy touring to use! Will NEVER return. They need to spend some of their high priced rates they pull in on updating and cleanup! - Nhgallup

We stayed in the "resort" for days to visit the nearby historical. We did not use facilities in the park. The pool and tennis court looked nice. For us the $70 fee was a little high as the "resort" roads and general appearance are in shambles. Very hard to navigate the rough narrow roads. Would not choose this park again. - bobbodean

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

No problems at all with electrical hookup or use. A few sites have uphill sewer hookups. This one did not. Short run. Always stay here when in the area. Biggest reason is Passport America discount. 2nd reason is the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. 3rd reason (a big one!) is LOCATION! Definitely the closest to the battlefield, Visitors Center and downtown G-Burg. Pros - mostly level sites; clean bathhouses with changing area for showers; adequate space between sites (remember, this is the Northeast, not the rest of the country! Our MH with 2 slides and toad fit easily); new pool; activities for all family members Cons - fewer 'bells and whistles' than other CG in area; dirt and stone roads and sites - none paved; muddy when it rains; difficult left turn when leaving (although you will mostly go right towards the Battlefield and almost everything else in the area!) Location, Location, Location and the people here make this a good choice for almost every camper. Nothing 'upscale' or 'fancy', just a friendly, comfortable place to use when exploring the area. - pamhyatt1

I reserved the 2 night stay by phone with an employee at the camp ground. Stated I wanted a 2 night stay with my escapee discount @50% off. I would not stay here at full price. Was quoted the price and made the reservation @ the 50% off rate. The lady on the phone was very nice and gave us info for RV wash by a fellow camper at the resort and info on LP filling in the area. Elec, water and sewer, no cable. Our antenna picked up 18 channels. Wifi is ok, att was 3 bars. Cons: Arrival Tip: You will be charged 25.00 if you arrive before 3 pm, so the line of campers was long and in the main road @ 3pm. After a 15 min wait, I went in to the office @ 315 to check in. Large store and lots of people on deck ready to check you in. As she is ringing me up she tells me she can not give me the 50% off I was quoted unless I stay 3 nights instead of 2. I was stuck as we had reservations for the next am for Guided Battlefield Carriage Tour. She already knew I was given the 50% off price for 2 nights, said I didn't have to stay if we didn't want to but not in a mean way. On to your site: You are given a map to your site, we were in between two horse trailer campers, our site was a small gravel hill, 9 foot by 26 feet. No room for your tow vehicle in front. It was level but the bottom step of the RV was 19 inches above the ground. Could not put an extra portable step down as you where on a gravel hill that sloped to the grass. The picnic table was placed over the fire ring before we got there as there was limited room. Our neighbor had loud music from am to 10 pm both nights, off at quiet hours. The first night the electric went out for awhile during the rain. I think everything was against us on this campground! We did have a nice time touring and the carriage ride was amazing with a guide telling you information about the battle. Pros: close to the battle field and restaurants. I would not return to this camp ground as they are dishonest. - hiker13

We stayed for 2 weeks, $440.00, to take in all the history. Sites are mostly grass and dirt. Somewhat level. Loved the horses out my back window. Quiet. No cable FHU all worked well. WiFi pretty good most of the time. We would stay here again. - milodog

This is almost the perfect park, beautiful wooded campgrounds, large camp spots, plenty to do. The camp spots were level and very clean. We stayed in site 15 for 5 nights and 18 for 1 night in the Addison run section the only electric section with pets allowed (1 old cat) electric only, water was close by. So level we didn't need to do anything. We booked on line and when we checked in the agent at the gate asked how old we were and then promptly gave us a Maryland Park Service Golden Age pass holders ($10) and refunded us 71 from our booked reservation, 1/2 price camping for 62+ Sunday thru Thursday. ATT did not work at the camp ground section we were in, but we went 1/2 mile up the hill to another section, took lunch with us and was able to get cell service. The antenna TV was also pretty bad, so plan on outside time. The hiking is great, swimming, fishing and canoeing, lots to do. At the front entrance is a book exchange. The only downside are the conditions of the bathhouse in the Addison run loop, and they are pretty bad. Enough for me to take 1 star off for this perfect park. A razor and garbage stayed in one shower stall for 3 days. A broom to knock down cobwebs and other debris would help, mop the floors or clean with a hose, just to mention a few things. - hiker13

The site we stayed in "#25" was very level and had a water spigot right next to it. There are lots of trails to hike in and around the park. A very nice hike down to the falls (a couple of steep and rocky parts, but very doable for us 70 year old, out of shape) . Wear good shoes and you will be in good shape. Hiking poles come in handy as well. A very nice setting provided a great spot to play during a heavy rainstorm. There was a lot of activity down at the lake during the weekend, but things quieted down nicely during the week. There was a "Teardrop" rendezvous going on while we were there. Great folks who seemed to really enjoy their little trailers.
The roads were easy to navigate, but that is in reference to our rig of 28'. The road in was curvy and narrow (highway 77) and the road up to the campground loop (Addison) was pretty steep. I wouldn't recommend it for a big 5th wheel although there were a couple of large motorhomes there - they did unhook their cars before they came in . - Capt Gerry

What a beautiful park! We stayed in Addison Run Loop pet-friendly with electric, site #15. Fully shaded, quiet, very secluded, level, clean and NO bugs. The weather was cool so we could leave our camper doors open..until the torrential rains came on Saturday afternoon...about 3" worth! Wonderful hiking trails down to the Falls and the Lake, a little difficult so glad we had hiking shoes and poles. Didn't use bathroom facilities this trip but peaked inside and they looked clean with nice shower stalls. We have a 21' Class B campervan so size was not an issue at our site, however, I could see that larger rigs may have trouble with site size. Our loop had more tent campers than RVs, and with the rains I was reminded how nice it is to be warm and dry hunkered inside our camper! The park is quite hilly with lush old growth forest and rocky outcroppings. We also hiked part of the Catoctin Run trail, crossing mountain streams which swelled with the heavy rain. We will definitely be back to this lovely place. NOTE: One of the tent campers took a plastic tub filled with firewood from our site while we were out sightseeing in the van. When we found the tub missing and went to retrieve it, the thief said "Sorry dude, I thought you were gone." We usually leave miscellaneous items out when we daytrip, never anything of value, to let folks know the site is occupied. - Debbie Collison

We have stayed at this park several times over the years. With this stay we noticed the park is looking rather scruffy. There appears to be more permanent (seasonal) sites and with that comes some sites that are becoming eyesores. There is a RV where the slide out came completely out of the RV and is busted up laying on the ground. No idea how long it has been that way. Some rigs look like they have not been cleaned since they were parked. The grass (and some trees) need cutting throughout the park. The wireless throughput was poor, fluctuating between .21Mbps to 2.40Mbps. If you need to get some work done, don't count on this network. Cable TV had a lot of signal noise. Not something I'm used to seeing. Water pressure was a bit low running between 30 and 50PSI, surprised by that. It would have been nice to see a consistent 60PSI but that did not happen. Power was excellent. Not exactly big rig friendly with some tight turns and like I said trees need to be cut back but it's do-able. Staff is friendly and professional. Overall I guess I'm somewhat disappointed. If I was staying for $30 a night I would just roll with it but for what we paid to stay I hold the park to a higher standard and it fell short. - The Man with No Name

First the good, friendly staff, lots of activities and amenities, excellent cable TV. The not so good, paid for a"premium"site, there was no where to place picnic table on level ground. Fire ring was almost in the next site and the grass is nearly knee high. Just expected more for the premium price. - Mgee

Have been here twice and we do see a rough edge building here. Fairly tight roads, lots of weeds, tons of trash built over holiday week (4th of July), dusty roads, road noise...but also friendly people, activities and lots to do in the area. So I'm somewhat conflicted. So is it a good campground or not? I do think that it is a good place, but one that needs an overhaul to bring it up to current standards in order to draw folks from outside the local area. - Randy L

We camped here in February and there was only one other camper. It was quiet except for the faint noise from the highway. The sites are pretty big, and they have a fire pit, picnic table and a little bit of a workbench for some reason. We paid $18 through self registration when we arrived by using the provided envelopes. A Ranger checked in with us A few minutes later to see how everything was going. Lots of hiking trails here but not much else to do in the winter. We stayed at site 20 which was very close to the Porta John that we used since the bathroom facilities are closed during winter. - The Bees

I used this campground for a quick overnight stay. This campground recently reopened after a long closure following heavy storm damage, and unlike the other campground at Cunningham Falls, is open year round, but with limited winter service, no reservations taken, and a lower fee charged.
Roads are paved and in excellent condition, but are tight, as are most sites. Sites are gravel and mostly level, but many can be a challenge to get into, this is not a big rig friendly campground. Picnic table, fire ring and lantern post are provided. Sites are spaced well, some closer good for groups, but many are spacious and well apart from other sites. Power at my site showed reversed polarity on the 30amp, and the outlet itself was installed upside down. The 20amp was good. No water or sewer hookups, water is available from spigots throughout the campground.
Shower house was closed for the season, a portapot was provided, but I did not use it. Campground was very dark but there was a good deal of road noise from Rt15, which continues all night long, but this was not an issue inside the camper. I saw no staff, and the campground was otherwise empty. It proved to be a good place to overnight with my small travel trailer. - Cyclonic

We camped in the Manor area which allows pets. While the sites were relatively close to the road - short driveways - they were nice and fairly level with stone dust pads, fire rings, picnic table and lantern posts. I easily fit my Roo 23SS on the site and oitched a tent for my son and still had plenty of room. It was a short drive up to the Falls and lake area. Park people were friendly. - DaGrinch
