Artillery Ridge Campground, Pennsylvania

For our trip to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, we decided to skip the hotel stay and try the camping facilities around the park.  In a previous trip, we had discovered the Artillery Ridge Campground, located just east of the Round Tops, while we were signing up for a horse back tour.  The tour is  offered by the National Riding Stables, which is located within the campground.     

The campground is one of the largest ones we have visited over the years.  It has facilities for those who wish to bring their own horses, sites that are available on a seasonal rate, cabins and trailers for rent, laundry facilities, recreational rooms, and play grounds.  There is a section for those who which to tent camp, and most of the RV sites have water hookups, and a number of those sites also offer sewer hookups as well.  There is also a nice general store for basic supplies, as well as a good sized gift shop.  One feature we really enjoyed is that the southern portion of the battlefield is only a short hike down a trail to the west, and if you are really feeling ambitious, it is only a mile hike into town.
