The 150th anniversary of the battle of Gettysburg will be celebrated in 2013 during the week of the 4th of July. We attended the outstanding reenactments 5 years ago (the 145th) and have been told that the 150th will be many times bigger.
I called a nearby private campground and found that they were selling sites with a 6-night commitment for over $800! However, the Pennsylvania State Park system has just begun accepting reservations at near-by Caledonia State Park. We booked 5 nights for $145 in site #171, (Hosack Run loop – pets permitted) arriving Wednesday , July 3rd and staying 5 nights. If anyone has interest in meeting up for this spectacular event you can reserve a campsite at:
or call 888-PA-PARKS (888-727-2757)
I am sure that reservations will go quickly for this popular event, but keep in mind that cancellations can be made up to the close of business seven days prior to the arrival date with just a $10 cancellation fee.
