Summary:

Gettysburg Farms RV Camping is like no other campground we have been to. There is a working farm right on site and it is accessible at all times. We were lucky enough to visit in spring and were there the week three sets of baby goats were born. The baby sheep were born the week before we arrived!

There are designated “petting zoo” hours but anytime you would like, you may go visit the animals. There is an abundance of fresh grass for feeding the variety of animals. Alpacas, llamas, sheep, goats, donkeys, rabbits, chickens and a cow are some of the animals that will greet you during your visit to Gettysburg Farms.
