“Staff GREAT! - owners - Terrible!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2012

Had an experience with the owners of this facility - their reception staff were courteous, helpful and due to a simple oversight - we were able to upgrade to a cabin, which unbeknownst to us, did not allow pets. Well into our 2nd day of our trip, putting our children to bed and 2 people on a golf cart paid a visit to our camp and berated, me while my husband was inside the cabin getting our 4 & 8 year old to bed. She was implying that I did not report our dog, which I was able to prove we did and make us feel so unwelcome with our pet that we ended up packing up at 10pm and heading home - completely ruined our first "family" camping experience. The owner even suggested that I tell her employee that she "was in big trouble" for letting our dog in this cabin. The owners never would call me to apologize for the mix-up and I had to go to the Attorney General for them to refund any our $$. Still to this day, the owner nor the wife have issued any sort of apology, written or otherwise. If you are taking your pet, be sure to check which cabins they are allowed to stay in. I would not recommend staying here, due to the unprofessional actions of the owners - Lorelle & John. - What may have been the perfect family get away turned into a true nightmare for our family!

Our family has been camping at this campground for 12 years. Our kids were little when we started camping and even though 2 are adults now, they still enjoy camping here with us. We have the same spot for 2 of the weekends in a row we camp there during the season and when we suggested getting another site for those weekends our kids were against it. They like the spot we have. The campground is nice and clean, staff is friendly. The owners are very nice, they go out of their way to accomodate any needs you may have. Lots to do for the kids. We love this campground and will continue to go there.

We have been camping here at least twice a year for almost 20 years and it is like coming home every trip!! Owners and staff are always wonderful and the campground is always clean and a fun place to stay. My kids have grown up there and feel like it is their "home away from home".

We have been staying at the Gettysburg KOA since about 1995. Ever since our first day there they have treated us like family. The staff is always pleasant and very eager to help in any way. We have never had a bad stay with them. We spend all holiday weekends and any other weekend that we can find the time to go. The sites and facilities are always kept very clean. They provide activities for the adults as well as the kids. We will continue to stay at the Gettysburg KOA as long as the Bergeron family continues running it the way they do. We are truly Happy Campers!
