We've camped here for our family reunion several years in a row. The beauty of this place is the wide range of options; tent sites, trailer sites, cabins and cottages, all offering different price ranges and levels of amenities. Some of my older aunts and uncles have no desire to camp, so the full service cottages serve them well, while others of us prefer to tent it. The larger cottages are nice. We have always found them clean and well cared for. The camp sites are ok, but not exactly large by any means. The bath houses are average, slightly grimy toward the evenings but this seems typical for most campgrounds. There are two pools. One with a slide (you have to pay extra to use the slide). The one pool offers a nice gradual incline wadding feature which is great for little kids. They loved it! There is also a little playground that the kids enjoyed. Fishing is also available although not a ton of fish were caught.
The location is very convenient to downtown Gettysburg and the memorial museums.
The staff is readily available and have always been friendly. I didn't notice a large amount of golf carts "flying around" as other reviewers have stated. Just usual maintenance driving around to clean or check things.
Our only real complaint and reason for looking into a new location for our next reunion is the price. It is a little pricey to stay here but if that's not a factor for you, come and you will enjoy your stay!

Stayed at one of the cabins. Have been boing so for five years. The staff is great, the cabins are very nice. I plan on going back. Great place to stay. Never had an issue. The staff was very nice and take the time to address concerns.

Very clean, quiet spacious campground. Yes there are a lot of golf carts but that is because the resort is so large. Everyone is so friendly! Very close to all attractions in Gettysburg.

We were in the far back of the campground, site 333. Could barely hear the highway & so quiet.

Only drawback is the store and cafe are way in the front of the resort. But, we like to walk and see all the units so not a big deal for us.

They had ghost story tellers, pool party and reenactments while we were here. Very enjoyable!

We camped in a 5th wheel. This was well worth the money!

I grew up camping but my husband did not so we don't. How to camp without having to buy all that gear? You go 'glamping'. We rented a cottage at this campground that was as if they dropped a hotel room in the woods! Kitchenette, full bath, flat screen, heat/AC in a log cabin small house. We had a lovely front porch complete with bench swings. Being in a campground, unlike a hotel, you get out walking and sitting outdoors by the fire. You have access to all activities the campground offers including 2 pools.
The ONLY drawback were the beds. Basically they took a slab of wood, framed it with logs and placed a mattress the thickness of a stadium cushion. ☹️ Bring a foam top or air mattress and schedule a chiropractor visit for after. Other than that it was an awesome weekend and everyone should go if just once.

I want to thank management and front desk for your assistance this past weekend on accommodating Sisters on the Fly. We had to bug out from our location because of high water. They gracefully accommodated our needs and thank you so much from Allegheny River Campground. It is awesome too know that as a PA campground you could help out another accommodate my sisters so what we could finish our trip. Thank you , thank you.
