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.

At first I think its an old Civil War cemetery, but no. A plaque states that these are the tombs of Indian students who came to study at boarding ...
... We head for the car to start the auto trip. It is now about 12:45pm. In the car and we are off. We actually start with stop 16 because it's the nearest to our starting point - it is the National Cemetery, where all the union soldiers were eventually buried and Abraham Lincoln made his famous 'four score and seven years ago '. Then, we cross town to find stop 1, where the Battle of Gettysburg started. Please don't think that this is a 'drive to the stop - get out - see ...
