Camp location help

In late Aug this summer we are looking to camp for a week at either Lancaster or Gettysburg? We only have the week then on to Washington.

Which is the better destination for a family of 2 adults and a 16 year old?

As an example: we really like Pirateland, Old Orchard beach, and Normandy Farms. So you can see we like to visit places that have lots of things to do.

Thank you everyone

I've been to both on day trips without the RV and both offer some great stuff. In a day or two your done the Gettysburg battlefields while Lancaster you have some more options like PA Railroad Museum, Strasburg Railroad, Dutch Wonderland Park, Sight and Sound theaters and Amish Markets, etc. Why not do both by staying in between. York PA is about half way between both and while you are there you can tour the Harley Davidson Factory on one day. A quick check of Google I found Ben Franklin RV Park in York Ben Franklin RV Park in York, PA near Gettysburg, Hershey, Lancaster from the website it looks fine and the reviews are above average. Just a thought.

Since it's my home, I'm prejudiced, but I like Lancaster. There are more great campgrounds here than you can shake a stick at, and there are really wonderful family attractions, as Robmat already mentioned.

Gettysburg is great, too, but may not have quite as many attractions as Lancaster. The Gettysburg Battlefield is not to be missed, and it's only about 60 miles from Lancaster.

Good luck, and we'll look forward to seeing you!

Roger

You might also want to consider Hershey as a half way point. If you do you'll have access to Hershey Park as well as the other sites mentioned.
