We recently stayed in the Granite Hill Campground as our friends camped there many years ago and said it was a good location for our visit to Gettysburg. There were no discounts honored as it was a special event weekend. The site we were given was the most unlevel site even though we were told it was a level site. We backed into a very tight spot with our 20 foot travel trailer and were very close to trailers on either side. The bathrooms were horrific. They needed some serious cleaning and had probably not been upgraded in many years. There is a WIFI hotspot but in lieu of the premium price we paid there should be WIFI throughout the campground.
Great place during the day. I have a 43' motor coach put in a small site that was easy in and horrible to get out. We had a extremely noisy campers beside us . LOUD party till 11:30pm or?, at that time I called the office-no answer,looked for security-none. We went home for the night and returned the next day for the coach. I Camped here since 1967. Emailed the campground of this incident with no reply. GUESS They don't CARE! No return from me.
OMG. Showers/ restrooms might have been cleaned sometime but not sure when. Pull through site, in name only. Narrow roads, heavily treed, very tight sites. Sites not close to being level, ours was on a hill. Run down and ill kept. Nice old farm but needs tons of TLC. No kids so not interested in "fantasy golf" or paddle boats. WiFi available in office only. Save your money and go to Walmart parking lot instead.
Beautiful grounds but when we asked if my daughter, her husband and two kids could visit our site, they wanted 20 dollars - $5 dollars a person and they didn't care they weren't using the facilities - we were here for 5 days for a wedding and we can't invite friends and family to stop by our 5th wheel. This is highway robbery because now we can't go somewhere else - they have my money. Be sure to call first and asked detailed questions - by the way - no wifi unless you are in the office or sitting at the picnic table outside the office.
I have been coming to this campground since I have been born. My wife and I are now continuing the Family Granite Hill Tradition! We actually stayed at GH twice this year, once in April, and once in October. We usually stay up in the "B" area and love it up there. The facilities are wonderful and its only a quick jaunt into town. The sites are pretty large and relatively level.
Seemed like a reasonably well kept campground, it was rainy so we didn't use all of the facilities. The staff was friendly though we didn't see them much unless we went to the camp store(which I don't mind). There's a mini-golf course on site, paddle boats, fishing pond, arcade etc. The utility connections were functional but looked like they're dated and needed upkeep. Also not all sites have gravel parking pads, be sure to ask if you're arriving during wet weather. Overall an enjoyable stay.
The location is ideal for visiting Gettysburg, only 8 miles straight down the road. It's a beautiful old farm; however, two of the 4 showers were not working properly, The staff was NOT knowledgeable about the facility's history or shuttle service to the national battlefield. Looked overall like management was not on top of things at all. We give it a 2 overall, and would stay somewhere else on our next trip through.
