Artillery Ridge Campground Resort ~ Gettysburg, Pa

Description:  OK ~ I am not a hard person to please... When I call for reservations I ask for a few things ~ that is if I am traveling with friends or meet up with someone I know we'd like to park together and we would like to be able to receive Satellite TV if you don't have cable in the park.  This is what I asked for when we made our reservations at Artillery Ridge RV park.  The lady who was at the front desk started out defensive since she knew we wanted 2 sites together and wanted to get satellite... she blamed it on the help there and when I said it wouldn't work for us since the sites were very unlevel too she said she had some sites in the back we could be happy with... well we weren't.  Yes we could get satellite but the sites were so unlevel our coach wouldn't level out... right across the street were sites that had gravel and were somewhat level.  Now there were sites up front that were nicer but she told us they were not available however no one ever went in them... We were in the back right near all the horses in water soaked sites...  after asking not to be near the horses since my husband has allergies to Horse fly stings.  We still had fun and enjoyed our time in Gettysburg but if I ever come back we will NOT be staying in this park.  I am sure some people have stayed here and liked it but the woman's nasty attitude did me in.  There were others who worked there that were a lot more friendly. You may like it... On a positive note they are really close to the battlefields and town.

    Date of Stay:  May 8th, 2012 ~ 4 nights

    Weather During Stay: Mostly rain and cool

    Favorite Sites: We stayed on site 405 and it was OK... 406 was better but we were way in the back of the park

    Rate: $31.28 with Passport & Good Sam

    Phone/TV/Internet: Both AT&T and Verizon worked well.  No cable TV but we did finally get a site where we had good satellite with roof dish (Direct TV)

    Elevation/Landscape:  Uneven sites & trees.  It was part of the battlefield and that was very interesting

    Lighting/Noise:  It was definitely quiet and dark in the back and we did sleep very well.

    Hiking/Walking/Biking:  You could walk around the park and visit all the horses.  Also the town and Battlefield are an excellent place to get out and walk.

    Things to See & Do:  There are many things to see and do while in this area.  The Gettysburg National Battlefield is the main attraction but also Dwight D. Eisenhower's home & farm are also here.  Plus many other related sites ~ click here to find out more.  While you are here definitely go to the 235 year old Dobbin House & Tavern for their famous Onion Soup.  You will not be disappointed

    Rating: (5)  I would not stay here again ~ there are many RV Parks in this area and I would try another.  It may have been the rough start with the lady at the desk but I would never come back here.  There were a lot of tents here and permanent people.

    Have Fun & Travel Safe

    thanks for your review. we wanted to visit Gettsburg a couple of years ago when we were traveling thru Pa but could not get reservations at any campground and the RV Park Reviews for this campground support your own comments. Have you ever stayed at the KOA in the area?
