Artillery Ridge Campground, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

We’re staying at Artillery Ridge Campground for a bit to explore the Gettysburg area and all that it has to offer. We chose this campground due to its proximity to the Gettysburg area ~ just two miles to the military park. It’s okay – nothing fabulous, nothing terrible. As with most things in this area, it’s expensive: $55/night. However they do offer Good Sam’s on Fridays & Saturdays and Passport America Sunday-Thursday, so that helps. We back onto a horse pasture, which is fine by us, especially since it’s too hot for open windows, so we can enjoy the view and not suffer the smell. :-)

ArtilleryRidge Campground offers free passes to the Gettysburg Diorama (largest in the world), a scale model recreation of the battle of Gettysburg.  We would never have gone had we not (1) been told that it gave a great overview of the battle, putting things in perspective as one tours the military park, and (2) we had free coupons.  It’s $7 per person, which we would happily pay if we are “diorama-type” people, but we’re not. So, yes, it did give us a nice overview, but it was a bit campy. Glad we went; glad we didn’t pay. :-)

Easy and affordable - no matter where you are!
