Round Top Campground
Reviewed March 9, 2007

My husband and I had stayed at this campground in June. We were very upset by the managers of the campground at the time. Their over all demeanor was horrible, and they didn't seem to care at all about us. We had already booked another reservation there in September and were unable to cancel it. Reluctantly we stayed there again on our way back to Florida in September. I was amazed by the wonderful staff we were met with when we arrived. They were very courteous and treated us the way we deserved to be treated. We enjoyed the activities they had that weekend including a magic show and bonfire with those good family feelings. We had a wonderful time! To top it all off the new manager of the campground was out there talking to people and assisting with the food and other areas. She was a delightful young woman and really made us feel right at home. When we stayed with them again in February, the young manager and maintenance staff helped us get into our site, gave us a great deal, and spoke to us as though we were all old friends. Round top should be commended for turning their park around and hiring such an intelligent and caring young woman to manage their park!! We will be visiting them again and often!!

We have been camping in Gettysburg for several years and, in particular, at Round Top for the last four. We were there when the former owners (2 young couples) worked fervently and constantly to make that campground and camping there an enjoyable experience. They subsequently sold to an outside investment group who clearly paid no attention to anything but the bottom line, until the bottom line went down the drain. There is nothing positive that I can say about the on-site managers, who, I am happy to say, are no longer there. The new management team has met with the seasonal campers and has made many promises, many of which are scheduled for this winter. I will withhold judgment for now, but I am heartened by the positive additude being displayed. The campground itself has many fine assets, including a great pool. RV and trailer sites are reasonably sized. Fully equipped and nicely appointed cabins are also available. Tenting sites are so-so but definitely OK for boy scouts. Fees are good considering the proximity to a major tourist attraction.

It was my first camping trip. I was very excited. We get to the campground and my excitement left. The campground is located right by a major highway..so much for peace and quiet. Somehow we got lucky enough to get the 1 campsite without grass and after the rain we had the day before,we had a muddy mess! We paid for 2 nights but only stayed one. Of course there was no refund, but we really didn't care. It was just flat out horrible!

Hi! I've Been camping at rountop for about 9 or 10 years. the previous owners: Ken, judy,steve,and wendy... were so polite... they were like family to me.... they treated me as if i was part of their family..... they were the best ever!!! The managers that are there now, are rude and inconsiderate. they never answer the phone so how in the heck are you supposed to get ahold of them. i still love the campground very much, its just the managers i don't like... they are nothing but a bunch of money grubbers. The campground was always kept clean but not anymore... it is so dirty.....there are two people however that i do get along with... they work in the snackbar... they are the best out of the whole bunch....... And whats up with this pool ordeal!! they closed it to the public! What the heck is wrong with them....that was one of their biggest money makers. There is poor customer service!!!!!! I Want Ken,Judy,Steve, and Wendy back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm very upset with the new owners of round top. We have been camping there for serveral years and loved it. The old owners made you feel like family. We tried to make reservations for halloween weekend. they won't let you they say to call back. Well myself and several family members have tried to call and left messages and no one returns the call. It is ashame to lose such a nice campground.

We had such a wonderful time at this park. We had read the reviews people had given the park before hand but decided we'd make our own judgements on this park. We had great service, and the staff went out of their way to make sure we had a pleasant stay! I would definately go back there again. To me it sounds that the poor reviews are from campers in the past who are afraid of change. Way to go Round Top, see you next year!

All positive reviews (under this advisor page)were submitted and published before Diversified Investors took over ownership around Nov. 2004. Round Top was one of the most sought-after campgrounds in the Gettysburg, PA area. We have been camping there for over 10 years. It is sad to see a wonderful place fall apart in such a short period of time. In Nov. 2004, the company bought the campground and the nightmares began. Immediately, negative changes started---DECREASES---in social activities for adults as well as for children; roads are breaking up; no lifeguard on duty during pool hours; grounds/office area not as neat and maintained; snack bar reduced open hours dramatically (couple hours a day); bathroom are not as clean as they once were; unable to resolve any issues with the staff because they are "clueless" and "out-of-touch". While walking around the grounds, we noticed that there were quite a few RVs up for sale (indication that there is a problem)and some Perm sites were not keeping their site's clean. BUT now lets talk about the positive aspects---INCREASED RATES!!!---The positivly raised the rates. Diversified Investors took a good thing, operated on a shoe string for 2005,only repaired/maintained what was necessary and raised rates for overnighters, weekenders, and Perm sites. Some individuals who have Perm sites are on fixed budgets and are unable to pay the $400.00 a year increase. So Diversified raise the rates and took away all the benefits at Round Top Campgound. Beware---stay away from Round Top Campground.
