The Battle of Gettysburg was fought July 13, 1863, in and around the town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The battle with the largest number of casualties in the American Civil War, it is often described as the war's turning point.  Between 46,000 and 51,000 soldiers from both armies were casualties in the three-day battle.  That November, President Lincoln used the dedication ceremony for the Gettysburg National Cemetery to honor the fallen Union soldiers and redefine the purpose of the war in his historic Gettysburg Address.

We have 15 sites saved in our block but you can book any site in the campground and both recieve the discount and join the group.  Just let the campground know that you are with the returning Canvas Campers group when making your reservation.

Back by popular demand, we are going to have a beer/wine festival at this rally.  It will be after the potluck dinner and is completely optional.  Bring your favorite 6-12 pack or bottle of wine to share at a tasting.

The double-decker bus tour here is great.  There are also options for a self guide car tour, sagway tour or even on horseback.

We will be bringing back the Beer, Wine and a little Moon Shine event at this rally.  On Saturday evening at 8pm, after the normal 6pm potluck dinner, we will be having an adult beverage tasting around the campfire.  If you are interested in joining please bring some of your favorite, funny or local beverages to share.  We will provide sampling cups, ice trays, cork screws, etc.

For anyone not touring the battlefield, we will have card games, mini golf, corn hole and ladder golf around at the campground.

This is a family event with camping, the campfires and potluck dinner so don't hesitate to camp with kids.

There is an arcade, a movie room, hand dipped ice cream, and a lovely creek to play in too! You need a PA state fishing license to fish in the creek.
