“Perfect place to relax.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2013

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.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013

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 The only thing we thought wasn't perfect were the bathrooms - they are a bit outdated and not particularly clean.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.

My wife and took a vacation to Gettysburg for Memorial Day. We stayed in one of the kamp kabins as my wife was 6 months pregnant. The kabin was very clean. The area was nice and full of woods. My only complaint and its a small one was the cabins are a little closer then I would have liked and the fire pit was almost on the road. If there was more then 2 of us we would have not been able to fit everyone around the fire. Overall it was a very pleasant time and the camp ground was full. I would stay again

Came here with a Boy Scout Troop and stayed in the primitive camping area. Excellent facilities and very, very clean bathrooms with showers. The cabins look great from the outside and my kids want to come back and try them out. The thing that sets this KOA apart for me is the activities that were available at the campground. We were here close to Halloween and there was camp-wide trick-or-treating, a "haunted house" and a magic show. The pancake breakfast was yummy and filling (huge, huge pancakes). Definitely recommend!
