Artillery Ridge Camping Resort & Gettysburg Horse Park is one of the most unique RV parks and campgrounds in the United States. Located in historic Gettysburg, PA on some of the most hallowed ground of the battle of the Union Artillery Reserve of the Gettysburg Campaign in early July 1863. It is one of the few parks where you can camp with your own horses. Experience a unique equestrian vacation with direct access to Gettysburg’s scenic horse trails. You will find covered box stalls, open stabling and outside paddocks as well as riding and exercise arenas for your pleasure.
And if you don’t have your own horse, you can take a tour of the battlefield with the National Riding Stables, adjacent to the Artillery Ridge Camping Resort. And if you don’t have an RV, why not stay in one of the unique “Western theme” cabins, designed especially for all you pardners.
Where in the world can you find mini-golf like this one at Artillery Ridge? It is brand new, and ready for all of your family to enjoy. Just don’t get scalped by the Native Americans who guard some of the holes. You should be okay with all the cow-pokes watching over your every shot.
