Camp Hill PA Overview

The town has a wealth of public, nature and recreation parks, as well as being a short distance from the County's best hiking, biking, skiing and canoeing.

Camp Hill is a thriving modern community that's proud of its Civil War heritage-being the northernmost engagement of the Gettysburg campaign in 1863. Learn about this Civil War spot and more on the Civil War on the West Shore Driving Tour.
