The Great Outdoors

Camp in an RV near Gettysburg and head west to Michaux State Forest, which is named after a French botanist, André Michaux, who was dispatched by King Louis XVI in the 18th century to gather plants for the Royal Gardens. It sprawls across more than 85,500 acres and was the site of the first forestry school in Pennsylvania, Mont Alto. After decades of industrial use, the area is now a thriving second-growth forest where locals come to hike, fish, and mountain bike. Follow a section of the Appalachian Trail as it winds through the Blue Ridge Mountains or cast a fishing line in the Long Pine Run Reservoir to see what’s biting.RV parks in Gettysburg also make a good base for visiting Tuscarora State Park, which is named for the Tuscarora Indian tribe who once inhabited the area. It centers around Tuscarora Lake, a popular local fishing destination that’s well-stocked with bass, yellow perch, and trout. Hikers can stretch their legs along the former logging road that ascends to the summit of Locust Mountain, with panoramic views on offer across southern Pennsylvania.Gettysburg / Battlefield KOA can also be used as a base for exploring Codorus State Park, which sprawls across 3,500 acres to the east of Gettysburg. The artificially created Lake Marburg lies at the heart of the park (fed by the Codorus Creek) and is a favorite spot for local anglers to lure largemouth bass, yellow perch, northern pike, and bluegill. Explore the Mary Ann Furnace hiking trail that leads through pine plantations and wetlands or follow the lakeshore along the picturesque LaHo trail. Aside from its natural beauty, the park is also home to two 18-hole disc golf courses and a nine-hole miniature golf course, together with a swimming pool.

Exploring the Area

RV camping at Gettysburg / Battlefield KOA is popular for its easy access to the Gettysburg National Military Park, which celebrates one of the turning points in the Civil War - the Battle of Gettysburg. Begin your visit at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center where you can find information about what to see and do, as well as delve into the history of the battle itself while browsing the Civil War artifacts on display. Watch the short film, A New Birth of Freedom and witness the Battle of Gettysburg Cyclorama painting that’s longer than a football field.Pay your respects at the Gettysburg National Cemetery and visit the memorial that marks the site of Abraham Lincoln’s famous 1863 Gettysburg Address. You can see where Lincoln made the finishing touches to his address while touring the historical museum at David Wills House, then visit the former home and farm of President Dwight D. Eisenhower at the Eisenhower National Historic Site. Gettysburg is home to a couple of supermarkets where you can pick up grocery supplies, as well as gas stations if you need to fill up your RV rental. There are also plenty of eateries for dining out, ranging from fast food restaurants to cafes and Italian bistros.Motorhome camping in Gettysburg is also ideal if you want to visit Harrisburg, which serves as the capital of Pennsylvania. Don’t miss the National Civil War Museum to see the perspective of both sides during the conflict or coincide your visit with one of the regular re-enactments that take place here. Harrisburg is also home to the State Museum of Pennsylvania where the region’s natural, cultural, and industrial history are showcased, with more than three million objects that date from pre-history on display.Whether you want to discover the Civil War battlefields or hike the Appalachian Trail, book an RV in Adams County and start planning your next vacation.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
