Staying at Artillery Ridge was a fabulous experience. The campground is actually located on a civil war battlefield.
Artillery ridge has a very well-maintained mini golf course.
They also have a very nice well-kept heated pool. Sorry there is not photo of it, but it was a great addition to this lovely park and a great way to cool off in the summer heat.
The park offers a huge group tent camping site. Several groups of boy scouts were there for the weekend.
The RV camping area is well kept with adequate room between RV’s.
Along with that they provide cabins which are unique as they are built with cowboys themes.
Horse riding is very popular at Artillery Ridge There are stalls, round pens and trails to enjoy horseback riding.
A great number of RV’ers travel with the furry friends. When we are on the road for some time we look for a dog groomer. We found the Yankee Doodle Pet Spa. If you are ever in Gettysburg, PA and need your pet groomed I definitely suggest this groomer.
The owners were very helpful and they did a super job on my Lhasa Apso, Nala.
While at Artillery Ridge, there are many sightseeing opportunities. If the civil war interests you, you definitely need to take advantage of these tours. We took one which was free. The guide was very informative and was able to answer any questions we had.
This is one of many rows of those unknown soldiers. The graves were marked with numbers. In some instances, their were so many casualties, that the soldiers were buried in mass graves.
By Gods will we are able to recognize the heroes and champions of our country.
The statues and monuments tell the story of the civil war and are a great reflection of our history. History CANNOT be changed and may these monuments never be removed as an effort to erase history!! Some states have already removed statues depicting persons who took part in the making of our history. This is unacceptable. We should learn from history not act like it never happened.
