Easy friendly check in. Escorted to site. Interior roads are tight. Shady. Gravel. Level. Good Verizon. Cable. Some sites are very close. 163 and 165 are awning to awning. We couldn't both put our awnings out fully or they would have touched. Picnic tables literally next to each other. Electric boxes are stacked so we couldn't use our surge protector or it would've blocked site 161 from plugging in. Management lets people park however they want to park on the sites. When we arrived we were the only people in our section. When we left the campground was full. We had to ask other campers to move cars and picnic tables so we could get out. We camped at Gettysburg Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park and very convenient to the Battlefields. We were very surprised how nice this park is. It has all gravel roads but everything else is top notch. Would go back again. We camped at Gettysburg Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park and would use again if in the area. The Gettysburg National Park is not to be missed by any American as what happened here changed the country forever. NPS does a great job with the park and information center.

This campground was most enjoyable to visit. We were along the stream in a good sized site. The site is paved with gravel and is fairly well level. Lots of trees. Easy access to the restroom/showers, etc. The staff is friendly and most helpful. The park is clean and in good repair. The security crew was making rounds to ensure visitors safety. Repair crews also made rounds to ensure sites were well maintained. The store was well stocked with items necessary for camping (such as ice, etc.). Facilities include a play area for kids, a miniature golf course, laundry facility, horse shoes, and large grass area for playing ball, etc. This was our second visit and will obviously be more visits in the future. We highly recommend this campground for and enjoyable camping experience. We camped at Gettysburg Campground in a Travel Trailer.

A reasonably good place with quick access to much of Gettysburg battlefield attractions and town. The pull-thrus on Stuart Cir. are set up to be tail to the nose of your neighbor. This puts the water/power bay sides of RVs pretty close to each other when the slides are out. The site was level and long enough for us. However, when it rains this place becomes rather muddy and has lots of standing water in the roads. We camped at Gettysburg Campground in a Motorhome.

We wish we had used a private tour guide instead of the bus tour of the battle field. When we heard the guides for those using them we felt they got more info.

Nice park, lots for kids. Easy access to Gettysburg Battlefield. WiFi needs help. Laundry room pretty small. Roads and sites are gravel but level. Staff helpful in moving to a better site at checkin. An on site rev service tech helped with some fridge maintenance. We used as base camp for overnite trip to DC, about 2hr drive. Worked well. Would stay again. We camped at Gettysburg Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for 4 nights during a camping rally. Site was nicely shaded, fairly level and enough room for our 32' Class C and the car. 30 amp only, no 20 amp. Our site was full hookup. Verizon signal was good. Cable connection not the best. Work camper was quick to respond when we asked for helped with the cable. Camp store is fairly well stocked. They have hand dipped ice cream cones which were very good. We had only one day with a little rain but was told our area will get a little soggy if there is a lot of rain. Will stay here again as long as we can have a similar site. Looks like the 50 amp sites on the other side of the field have zero shade. Campground staff was friendly. We called ahead before arrival as we expected to arrive a little bit prior to check in time and was told that would be no problem. We camped at Gettysburg Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice campground IF you get the right spot. (We did. #183 30A FHU backing up to Marsh Creek). I will definitely come back if I can get the right site. The majority of 50A premium sites were not impressive. The vast majority or wooded sites here are 30A W&E. Very well staffed, well maintained facility. Pool, mini golf, large open sports field. We camped at Gettysburg Campground in a Motorhome.

If touring the Battlefield, hire a guide to travel with you in your car. It's more intimate than a bus tour, and actually less expensive.

we made reservations 3 months in advance for our 44' MH. when we arrived, late in the afternoon we were given our site - site 85. there were too many trees for use to even pull into the site, the site was far to short for our MH. one of the grounds men came by and help us wont the office staff. the office staff were not well suited for camp ground work, as they didn't ow what sites we open and didn't even know the size of our site. we were finally moved to site 77. our MH fit, but we have absolutely no yard, it was all dirt and hard rocks. maybe 8 feet of space. the fire ring was on a slanted angle not really safe or useable, and far too aloe to our MH. the picnic table was good. we would not stay here again. no apology from the management. the grounds man was great though. We camped at Gettysburg Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice place, spots are pretty level.
They could plant some trees in the area we stayed so that some day there is some shade for those 100 degree days.
Like the location close to everything.
Would stay again. We camped at Gettysburg Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Plan plenty of time for the battlefield.

For the RVers if you are new to it Rv’s ask for help. There should be no reason to start a Motor coach that is hooked to shore power every morning.

The staff at this campground were very friendly and helpful. The sites were very large and shaded. Nice level places to go for a walk. They had lots for the kids to do. They had an ice cream shop and a well stocked store. They were located very close to the Gettysburg battlefield area and downtown Gettysburg. We took a Washington D.C. tour from this area. We visited the Amish countryside,the National Civil War Museum, and Hershey Chocolate World. They have a on site RV repair shop. Please visit our Rvacationer You Tube Channel for a video.

This is a very nice park and very reasonably priced compared to most in the Gettysburg area. We spent a week here while visiting the battleground and other historic sights. Staff couldn't have been more helpful and everyone was very friendly. The pool was exceptional! Our site was fairly level gravel, with full hook-ups which all worked well. We were able to get quite a few channels, both on cable and by antenna. They have an on-site RV repair which came in handy when we needed a small repair to our rain gutter thanks to apparently brushing a low-hanging limb somewhere on our trip there. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Gettysburg Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Large family friendly campground with roughly 250 back in and pull through gravel RV sites, 21 tent spaces and 6 cabin/cottage rentals. Sites are a mix of FHU and W/E 30 and 50 amp sites with cable, picnic table and fire ring. We stayed in site 5, a premium FHU back in site at the front of the park which was very spacious but slightly unlevel side to side. Some sites are very close together and there are a lot of "buddy" sites here. Refer to the campground map before booking and choose your site carefully. Some of the premium sites at the front have little to no sitting area or trees that would impede slides/awnings (please see photos). Site 6 was the worst since there was a large dip that held water and our connections were next to their picnic table. Interior roads were gravel, but paved and wide at the front of the park. Restroom/shower area behind the office had three toilets and 2 showers per gender and although dated were clean. Laundry room had 3 washers and 3 dryers. Park has nice amenities such as a pool (open Memorial day through Labor day), shuffleboard, mini golf (they are currently renovating), playground, basketball court, volleyball, game room/arcade, horseshoes, pedal cars, large rec hall, and even an onsite RV repair shop. Office was nice with generously stocked store including RV supplies, snacks, drinks, gifts, milk, eggs and hand scooped ice cream. There is a large stocked creek that runs around the property which you can fish with a PA license. Staff were pleasant and informative. Propane sold onsite and they recycle. Utilities worked well and Verizon service was very good. Free wifi but we didn't use. Excellent location. We enjoyed our stay here and would return.
