Located just 3 miles West of the center of town, our Gettysburg Campground is bordered by beautiful Marsh Creek, with both shady or sunny RV sites, and a primitive tent area along the creek. We offer 260 sites, accommodating everything from a tent to literally any size RV. Gettysburg Campground is also the only campground in Gettysburg with an on-site RV repair facility. We also have rustic cabins and full-facility cottages
Campground has so many activities for active families. Pool, swing sets, hosted events and theme nights and weekends. Sites are large enough for 2 tents, many Rv and seasonal rentals one main bath house and very clean potable potties scattered throughout the area. Small creek runs at the end of the grounds.. Very close to so much history, close to downtown Gettysburg with sight seeing tours offered for the battlefields, shopping and dining close by.
This is a great campground - quiet. The stream around the perimeter was very nice. We had a primitive site for tents, but wish we had gotten one with water and electricity. There were portapotties that were clean when we got there, but they didn't dump out after the weekend. We were right across from them, so we could smell them. In laws stayed at a full RV site which was only a short walk for us to get to them. Both sites were nice, but again, I wish we could have gotten a site with hookups closer to them to make the family camping experience more enjoyable.
The pool was quite refreshing, the store was nice, but quaint. The mini golf was very very basic, but the fact that it was free made up for it. It was about a five minute drive to the downtown area which was wonderful to walk around when we got there. Also a couple of blocks from the battlefield which was really cool. We had a couple of day drives to lancaster while we were there.
Because we left most days, it didn't bother us that they only had activities during the weekends. That might be an issue for some. We also brought our dog and they had special bins and supplies installed for poop bags.
One of the evenings, we had a large rainstorm and they filled in all the deep puddles and holes in the driving roads with crushed stone. They are on top of that upkeep making it easier for those hauling campers to not have any surprises on their way out.
All in all, I would definitely stay here again.
Great spot. Nice creek with ducks. Close to battlefield.
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.
