Going to Gettysburg PA on Thursday, can anyone recommend somewhere to stay?
We want to visit the park and museums.

Granite Hill is a really nice park. Think there are closer ones to the attractions though, like Gettysburg Campground. Never stayed there though so I can't say how it is.

We have stayed at the KOA. Nice Campground. What I will say is DO NOT stay at Drummer Boy unless you like a lot of Highway truck noise.

Definitely Granite Hill...I agree it is a little farther out but very nice campground. As to Gettysburg campground...some sites are very tight. It is a nice campground...but tight. Been at the KOA also years ago...that one is nice but we had a smaller trailer so not too sure how tight that would be if you have a good size rv.

We stayed in the area. Found it hard to locate CGs there, and some pricy.
If you can, visit the Harley Davidson plant nearby. Free tours, and interesting too.

We've stayed at Artillery Ridge and liked it. Check out their reviews. If you're a Passport America member it becomes very reasonable.

also know you are hitting part of PA known for apple growers, and we had a great season. Mine are very sweet this year. There is some wineries around the area as well.

We stayed at this campground also several years ago and enjoyed it. We did the horse back riding tour that left right from the campground and that was a lot of fun.

Stayed at Granite Hill this past weekend. It's not too bad and I was not jammed in like I saw at Gettysburg Campground down the street. I did not go by the KOA, but it is also close by.

We are now waiting on Hurricane Nate to pass thru the Ohio and Pennsylvania area before we can leave northern Indiana. We may miss out on the Gettysburg plans.

If it helps, Nate is just supposed to be rain Monday into Tuesday in PA... no winds associated with it.
