Looking for info on a nice campground in Gettysburg, PA. Must be able to accommodate a 45 ft MH with 4 slide outs.

In May we stayed at Artillery Ridge near Gettysburg and it can accomodate your size RV. (They are Passport America if you happen to be a member but two nights only I think or weekends excluded but I don't remember which) Staying there provides you free tickets to the diorama of the battlefields. At the diorama we purchased a battlefield CD that explains the areas as you drive the battlefield tour. Very informaative and we'd recommend the CD unless you have a formal tour. Artillery Ridge also has horse riding if you are so inclined.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

I agree with Artillery Ridge if; you don't mind being out in the sun with no vegetation, you're ok with lots of dust, especially in these dry conditions. Don't get me wrong, great campground, diorama, horseback, and location to battlefield is superb and folks are great. On the other hand you can try the KOA which is a little "out of town", by a couple of miles maybe. We went last September and we were very pleasantly surprised at this campground. It is built right into the side of a small mountain or large hill, take your pick. It is extremely well shaded, gravelled, and extremely well maintained. Having said that, you want to be sure they know you're coming with a 45' as there are only a limited number of sites that will accomodate you comfortably. We are 43' really and I would guess I saw 10 or 12 sites, all back in by the way, that would accomodate us. Check it out, we'll go back for sure.

We used www.gettysburgcampground.com last fall in 40' w/3 slides (lots of room) Near creek so lots of trees (shade). RV mechanic on site with good rates.

I should have added that I need a place that is satellite friendly. I need to be able to keep in contact with my office. Therefore I would prefer fewer trees.

Drummerboy worked or us. Given the choice I would suggest the "back" section. Less traffic noise. Just not sure about satelite freindly. You may want to ask.
