Roundtop Campground, Gettysburg, PA

Looking to camp near Gettysburg, PA? Check out Roundtop Campground! We started talking about going to Gettysburg in early spring and MeMe started to research different places to stay.  Almost everyone campground was booked. We were able to get 3 sites at Roundtop.

Roundtop Campground is very popular and therefore busy.  I would suggest calling early. We ran into a couple who called everyday for 3 weeks to get a site.  There are also a lot of seasonal sites at the campground so not every site you see on the map is open.  Talk to the friendly front office staff to see what is available to fit your needs.

No only are the office staff friendly but so are the camper.  Being that we about 60ft long it was going to be tight for us getting the camper into the site.  The guy next to us was nice enough to move his truck and the guys from the site behind us came over and helped Jamie move the camper closer to the electric and water so that we had a little more living area.

We loved that this campground was only minutes away from Gettysburg. I mean one of the stops on the auto tour is less than 2 miles.  We also loved how quiet the campground was, especially with three kiddos who needed naps. You didn’t see many golf carts zipping up the roads.  

We did not like the fact that our sites were very small.  We weren’t able to put our awning completely out, nor were we able to spread our mat out completely. We didn’t have this problem but the MC and Uncle Ron/Aunt Nancy kept tripping the circuit breaker.

With every trip we learn something else about camping or find something else we would like. On this trip we…

    • Saw another camper who had led lights on the outside of their awning.  We really liked how this lite up their whole outside area. We will be looking into adding that to our camper.
    • New foil meal: Herb Butter Salmon and Asparagus, very YUMMY!!
  • New vacuum (Dyson handheld) was awesome. Especially for cleaning up all the gravel that we kept tracking in.
  • best kid equipment we brought with us was the wagon.  They boys loved to be in it and we were able to feed them in the wagon instead of taking their high chairs from site to site for meals.

    • Sheetz up one exit on route 15. We went here for ice and fountain soda. Jamie also went for gas because we did a lot of driving on our Gettysburg Auto tour. (I will do another post about our day trip to Gettysburg in another post)
  • Walmart Supercenter with a nearby Lowes or Home Depot, about 30 minutes.  We visited the Walmart because the kids had too many blowouts and I was afraid we were going to run out of baby wipes. The Walmart was big and had a decent size camping section. Uncle Ron and Grand-dad visited the Home Depot because grand-dad and meme were having electrical problems and needed a new meter.
