TravelPod Member ReviewsGettysburg / Battlefield KOA
We have stayed at this KOA 2 times in the span of 5 or so years and would always return when we visit the Gettysburg area. Clean bath houses, friendly staff and nice sites. We travel in a 32' motorhome.

There's a country market that hasn't quite woken up... a church with a sign "You are Now entering the Mission Field" as its exit. I guess a reminder to the parishioners that they have a duty to try and convert the heathen whenever off church property... Off ...
... camps, the sheer number of men fighting and the loss of life in just the Gettysburg fight of three days, not to mention the 4 year fight.
The battle at Seminary Ridge took place on the first day of fighting, July 1, 1863. On this building is a cupola in which General Buford utilized to look out over the nearby fields to help in directing his ...
... With ammunition very low, he gave the order to fix bayonets and they charged down the steep ridge. The charge pretty much finished the men from Alabama, and earned Chamberlain (a college professor before the war) the Medal of Honor.
There were 100 or 1,000 other men on both sides just as brave, but he certainly represents the amazing sacrifices of the three day battle. I cannot remember any historical place I have enjoyed as much as Gettysburg.
