Staff was super friendly and accommodating! Lorelle and her team have done a great job. Camp sites were clean and organized and well kept!

It was spur of the moment, and I had a great time. I enjoyed the decorating for Halloween and the kids trick or treating.

A VERY nice campground, pretty and convenient location, VERY friendly and helpful folks, and VERY nice bathhouse, I would say the best we have stayed at and we have been camping on 30 day trips 2-3 times a years for 3 years now since retired- seen lots of campgrounds, and this one is not just a good as the best we have seen, its better than any other.

We were at a nice tent site with electric. Very level tent pad and 2 20 amp hook ups to run our heater and lights.

They had no bottled,water to sell, the bathrooms were not only run down but many things broken. A toilet. Air dryer. Plug in. Not cleaned properly and way too many things maintained. Just one girl at checkin and she didn’t seem to be too concerned. Our site needed better garbage pickup. Bottle caps, cigarette butts. Very disappointed. Our trip has been all koa. In our seventh week

Excellent accommodations and very pleasant staff. The hours of the store are great and firewood delivery to your campsite is a plus if you’re on a motorcycle as I was. The restroom/shower room was always clean during my stay which is a big plus in my book.

I had a great stay! The grounds & facilities were well maintained and the staff was wonderful. My drive in was longer than anticipated and I pulled in minutes before the office closed. Rather than have me fill out the after hours forms the ladies in the office waited and got me checked in. I know what it's like to have a last minute customer so I appreciate their help!

Gettysburg KOA is beautiful & the tent sites are very nice! Would've been perfect, except our tent site backed up to an RV site & Sun. night, after the campground emptied out for the wkend, the office put a van with a LOUD a/c RIGHT BEHIND us. Felt like I slept in a refrigerated truck. Don't understand since there were plenty of sites avail. If I didn't leave sleepless, I would've given 5 stars.

The Gettysburg KOA is a favorite of our family. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The facilities are clean and well taken care of. After a day of touring, battle walks or shopping, it's a great place to come back and relax.

I arrived early to go to the bluegrass festival .. I got there at noon to check in because the festival started at 2 pm. and they charged me an additional 25 dollars for earl. I had the discount card which should be a discount and they didn't even do that. I already paid for that day plus a 25 dollar fee. it would have been cheeper to not have a reservation and just come in and pay for the day


David, We have an early Arrival fee for anyone arriving before 2 pm. You arrived at 11:30 AM, which is why you were charged the $25. You did receive your VKR discount. We hope you enjoyed your stay as well as the Bluegrass Festival.

Gravel tent pads are great until the gravel gets wet and tracks.

I loved the entire experience. The staff was friendly and entertaining for young children with the binoculars and rocket crafts time. Night time was peaceful and calm. My boys are 5 and 3 and have now fallen in love with camping and the outdoors. This will be something we do again multiple times a year. Thank you.

Was an amazing weekend. Prices were reasonable and there was plenty of events and activities. Bathrooms and Pool were very clean and nice.

Have been a camping family for 30 years but first time campers at this KOA. Really enjoyed our time. Had 2 sites. Lots of things for young kids to do & grand babies had a great time. Loved the putt putt. Friendly staff. Will be back with the entire family. Only suggestions would be a small snack bar & maybe a small game room for older campers who are kids at heart. Thank you for a great time!


Sandy, We are so glad you had a great time at the campground. We will look forward to having you come back with your family. Thank you for the suggestions. We are planning to add a snack bar when we rebuild the pavilion. See you soon.

This is one of the nicest campgrounds we have ever stayed at, and there have been decades of many. The sites were level, tent site pads were perfectly level and they matched my tent and dining fly to the right size site. This is a smaller campground but the sites were roomy, definitely for tent camping. Staff was friendly, awesome and attentive and the entire place was super clean.

Cabin had bedbugs and the water had a bad smell, very metallic.

Great site and facilities
Aug 01, 2019
The sites are tight. There is no grass at all. It's okay for a quick stay, but I wouldn't enjoy it long term.

Barking dogs all the time Horrible

My stay was excellent. I just wish there was something KOA in general could do about the lights that shine at night. I realize their purpose, so everyone can walk safely to the bathrooms and back however they shine right through our tent all night. The Gettysburg KOA was clean and fun. I would highly recommend it. But many KOA s have those lights. What can be done?

Working with Nicole for my group reservation was wonderful. She's very competent and super friendly. We will be back next summer!

My husband and I stayed at site G tent camping. Nice site and very convenient to the bathroom. Staff was very friendly and helpful, we would highly recommend and if ever back in the area would stay again.

We have stayed at Gettysburg KOA 3 times and have enjoyed our stays, unfortunately for the campground their recreation hall burnt down while we were camping out for bike week 0530 Sunday morning. But the staff remained calm and focused on the work at hand. The firefighters were able contain the blaze although several campers did panic, grabbed their gear and left in a in a hurry.

Although the weather did not cooperate with camping in a tent, heat index in the 100s, the campground was very nice. The restrooms and showers were always clean and neat. The pool was refreshing and relaxing. The staff were very nice and friendly. We wished it was about 10 to 15 degrees cooler but KOA cannot control that.
Jul 23, 2019
We had a wonderful time. Had awesome neighbors that lent us a fan for our tent when it was so hot and humid. The only downfall was the electric went out in the bathrooms but it was fixed pretty quickly.

It's our third year coming back. Great, safe and convenient environment and great staff! Thank you for providing a quality campground for us. :)

Very nice and friendly. Coffee in the office available, was great and not needing quarters to shower, was awesome!
Jul 16, 2019
Super friendly staff, really well kept campground. I hope the campground recovers from the fire that burned down the pavilion that occurred during our first night staying. We hope to come back soon!
Jul 16, 2019
Very friendly staff, easy to locate, free showers, laundry and camp site was nice size for our tent. Bathrooms were fairly clean and conveniently located. Nice size pool. Only issue was the quiet time didn't include the bikers as they revved their engines late at night...partially my fault for not realizing it was "bike week".

We stayed here for Memorial Day weekend just as PA was re-opening from Covid-19. Some of the campgrounds in Gettysburg are open fields, but this one is shady, which we loved. The staff is friendly and made the social distancing guidelines clear so we felt safe during our stay. There was even a live band on Saturday night, We would definitely stay here again.

As we pulled into the campground I new that it was a winner. It’s a beautiful, well kept, and nicely planned out vacation spot. However you camp they provide great amenities. There are cabin rentals, activities for the kids, pet friendly, a store and I’m sure I’ve left something out. It was very nice just to walk around at night. The owner and her niece help us find our dog who pulled out of his collar and was lost for two hours. We are forever grateful for their help. We look forward to going back. Touring the battlefield was a eye opening experience. There’s a audio tour that takes you through the park and informs you of events that happened. Should be very informative to students who will be studying the civil war and the battle at Gettysburg. Gettysburg has a lot to offer. Highly recommend the town and the KOA on Knox Rd.
