Very fun family friendly getaway for the weekend. Close to Gettysburg Battleground.
campground was pretty crowded, but the tent sites were secluded and well kept. staff was extremely helpful. close to the battleground and all attractions.
It is a wonderful place to have Kids. tons of things for them to do. we were in tent sites which felt bigger than most and were right by river. not far to go anywhere walking. porta potties were cleanest I have ever seen even with a ton of recent rain. lots of history nearby .
Just as all the other reviews say it’s a great place to stay. Quiet clean and the occasional drop of nuts from squirrels but not a big deal.
We go for Halloween Weekend every year. Wonderfully organized, lots of activities for kids, and a fun costume competition/parade! They also hold a camp wide trick-or-treating session, and even a dance for the bigger kids in the clubhouse. A small campstore carries most if not all necessities you might need, and staff is knowledgeable and willing to answer any troubleshooting/general questions you may have about the camp and surrounding area.
This campground is a short drive from the battlefields and has nice enough sites, however being along the water there could be serious flooding. We had to evacuate after the first of our three night stay. Also beware of the elderly gentleman who leads you to your site. Don't let him guide you in as he backed three of our group into a tree.
This was our third stay here on our somewhat annual family meetup in Gettysburg. I always appreciate the near solitude experience of this campground as 90% of the sites are RV sites, that are kept away from the tenting area. The tenting area is calm and has a creek right next to it to listen to in the evening and morning. One of the drawbacks of this campground is that a lot of the trees are black walnut trees and the squirrels do not shy away from dropping the walnuts like bombs on your head, car, or table when you're preparing breakfast.
Gear Review: I won a pair of Treadagain sandals for one of my last campground reviews and this was the first camping trip that I took with them. When I initially bought them, they gave me an abrasion cut and I contemplated sending them back, but after wearing them more, they became more comfortable and I have found them to be ideal for walking around in all day since they have thick bottoms.
Gettysburg is a place that I could spend days in and learn all its history. The campgrounds were easy to find and had plenty of room. I was really pleased with the host and how kept up all the facilities were.
Stayed here in October while family stayed in hotels. This is a family campground and is mostly occupied by RV's who stay long term. Tent sites are spacious and fits 2 cars, sites fit 2-3 tents. The tent sites have numerous walnut trees, so there's a bit of a hazard there when walking around trying to dodge the falling nuts (cars are targets too!). The campground is pretty close to downtown Gettysburg if you're looking for restaurants/shops. It's in the heart of the battlefield access points and trails. The campground usually puts on various activities, parties, etc, mainly kid oriented. This is a nice site/area for base camping in the fall.
