Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

huge campground. very spreadout but some sites have highway noise. facilities could use a little updating. a lot of annual sites and a hand full of seasonal sites. most of the weekenders are in the back of the resort but it works well. they are my favorite sites anyways. already have plans to return in the spring.

I used to go all the time as a kid and finally got around to coming back. We rented a cottage and loved it. Very clean and adorable. Yes you could here some traffic nearby, but it wasn't loud enough to bother me at all. I will most definitely be back.

Very nice campground. We were there for Halloween 2015 and they had lot of things for the children including trick or treat, very cool. Everyone was friendly including staff. Quiet at night, very relaxing

Check-in was friendly, super-fast and very efficient. The camp store was very well stocked. The sites and roads are well marked with signage. Our stay was in October for 4 nights. No-one on golf carts or otherwise harassed or bothered us (just a note for the reviews that said they were harassed by campground management). 1st off, I would have...

We camped here last year for the wine festival and again this year. Nice campground, but not many activities. Was very excited that the pool was open this year, really nice! We will be returning next year!

My visit hasn't happened yet... I booked a cabin for my family the second weekend in October 2016. The online rates didn't indicate a holiday price for this weekend. In fact online it clearly states the 2nd weekend in October is a seasonal rate. After booking the cabin I realized I was charged the higher holiday rate. When I inquired...

We just got back from our long weekend here and overall this is a nice place to stay while visiting Gettysburg. Our spot was very large, private, and had a ton of natural shade from tall trees, something I really appreciate at a campsite. The price was reasonable and being we don't have any kids I can't give too much...

We've stayed here at the end of summer for years, renting different sized cabins deepening in how many are in our group. Cabins are always clean and have porches with a canopy, fire pits, charcoal grill, picnic table.
