Hi Jim,
I have not stayed at the CG you ask about. However, I have visited Gettysburg many times. Consider going to the new National Park Visitor's center (for the battlefield). Allow the better part of a day for the visitor's center. There you can get all the maps and suggestions for the choices on how you might want to see the battlefield and Gettysburg area. The battlefield and surrounding area can easily take a week. On our last trip, I took our Gkids thorough the battle as it actually happened. There were two high points. One was we walked the Confederate solders route they took when launching Picket's charge (from the Confederate to the Union line). The other high point was we took the Confederate soldier's route as they left Devil's Den and headed up Little Round Top. It gave the Gkids a much better understanding of what the foot solider went though as they made their attack. I guarantee if you do this for Picket's Charge, you'll come away with an understanding of the charge that very few people have.

One can also take a day trip to Lancaster (a bit East of Lancaster) and learn about the Amish.

We stayed at Drummer Boy Campground site No 69 and a lot of the others were not level. It is located beside a major highway and was very noisy. The plus it is near everything and has lots of shade and is very pretty. The employees were very nice. If you go there plan to stay in the back, sites appeared to be more level and not as noisy.

We left Gettysburg about 3 weeks ago. We stayed at Artillery Ridge CG. It is a PassportAmerica CG if you are a member. It is also the Natinal Riding Stable so if you get reservations ahead of time you can take a trail ride on the battle fields of the Civil War (nothing Civil about it). Artillery Ridge CG has a Diorama that is free to camping guests. A great starting point. We also purchased the video "Gettysburg," at a local shop and watched it after the Diorama.

We have taken the self guided "Auto Tour." The CD is about $20 and will guide you around the different battle sites and memorials. The visitor meuseum was good and at the end it has the "Cyclerama" (sp) which is a combintation mock-up and mural of the battle fields.

As stated, a trip to the "Amish" countryside is a very scenic trip.

Happy trails.
