What Locals Love
“The Conewago Creek is one of the most beautiful creeks I have come across in the area. There are plenty of areas in which it is deep enough to swim, but shallow enough to safely wade as well. There are great areas for fishing, as well as relaxing on the bank, or sitting in the slow moving water as well. It’s a wonderful day trip for those who enjoy a little piece and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of crowded Gettysburg and surrounding towns.” – Raelynn (Google Reviews)
