“Very nice camground in a nice shaded setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

We stayed in for two nights in a nice shaded tent site while visiting the battlefield. The campground is very tidy, quiet at night, and very close to Gettysburg. Civil War buffs: I strongly recommend taking knoxlyn road north from the campground to US 30 on your way to visit the battlefield. At the intersection of the two roads is a much overlooked monument marking the spot where Marcellus Jones of the US 8th Cavalry fired the "first shot" of the battle--the spot is not marked on any of the National Park maps or guides and none of the guided tours go near it (it is too far west of town).

you stayed in hundreds of KOAS, this would be in our top 5. beautiful trees and maintain sites. the local activities with Gettysburg well have you riveted for days on end. the campground has nice clean bathrooms and a nice swimming pool. every evening there is a movie for the kids. do you want to take a tour of Washington DC? if so the tour bus will pick you up right here at the campground. not too many pull throughs a lot of back in sites. will come back to this one.

It is far enough from town but close enough. We sat around our fire listened to nature. The staff were very friendly, helpful, and informative! They are very pet friendly, they even have pet playground! When we come back to this area it is now our home away from home!

We had cabin number 13, it was located a few feet away from the bathrooms/showers! It was perfect. The staff were very friendly and happy. The pool was amazing it ranged from 3-6 feet. The only problem was the mattress, it was extremely uncomfortable. Overall it was the perfect place to relax.

We took our newly acquired hybrid trailer to the Gettysburg KOA for it's first time out. We were pleased with how close the campgrounds were to the town and battlefields. The campgrounds are beautiful - very wooded and hilly.The paths are gravel and although it rained the first night, it did not get muddy. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The only thing we thought wasn't perfect were the bathrooms - they are a bit outdated and not particularly clean.

KOA Gettysburg is a perfect getaway, not far from home. The campground is beautiful - very well taken care of. All spots, whether tent, RV or cabin are perfect. We always rent a cabin and have never been disappointed - other than when it's time to leave. The staff is always eager to please and their facilities are spotless. They have many activities on the campground or you can drive into Gettysburg & enjoy learning about history. We'll be back real soon!!

We had a nice level site in a quiet section. Good camp office with friendly staff. Very helpful attendants seemed to keep an eye on things and answered our questions. We rented cd from office and toured historical sites at our leisure. Grocery store about 4 miles away. We would recommend this campground if you are visiting the area.
