“A gem of an old Army Post”
Reviewed 19 June 2013 via mobile

If in the neighborhood, visit the post and walk around and take in the history. It is small and flat and historic buildings have placards that detail their history. Carlisle was once an Indian School and the famous football player Jim Thorp attended school here.

“A lot of things to do”
Reviewed 14 May 2013

Spring Carlisle show event was great this year, especially with the nice weather. Plenty of cars for sell. A little crowded, but a very good experience

“Beautiful Barracks”
Reviewed 23 April 2013

Spent five years on the War Collage staff - visit every time we visit Carlisle. There is a lot of history being Jim Thorps college and at the time Indian College. You have the smartest people in the military based there. Loved every minute I served the Collage.

“Good value golf”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

On April 9, 2013 I golfed at the Carlisle Barracks Golf Club ($18 for 18 holes) that welcomes the public. For the red tees, CR:68.6/slope:113. It is easy to walk the flat course with a pull cart in 3 to 4 hours. I used a new club pull cart ($4 for 18 holes) with nice areas for sweater/purse, balls, drink, etc. A riding cart is $13 for 18 holes on hot summer days. Although the rather plain course had recently been aerated, the fairways and greens were in good shape - better condition than expensive landscaped golf courses I played in March in Florida and Georgia. There was cold drinking water on the course and well maintained ball washers. I golfed with the Tuesday morning ladies league that welcomes the public: just sign up with the pro shop (717 243 3262) for a T-time each Tuesday you want to golf. The course also has a practice area; a LPGA for lessons; and a snack area for lunch.

“Small Base”

Not much there. Small PX, Ok sized commsery and a ATM. A small subway inside the PX but not a whole lot more. Did not spend much time on the base.
