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.

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.

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.
