We are in the process of selling our home in Virginia and moving to Adams County to be nearer our children and grandkids in Md. Are there any shooting clubs and public hunting and fishing areas west of Gettysburg?

No replies at all? About 25 mi West of Gettysburg is Caledonia St Pk. Some fishing but not great. York County-Hanover PA supports Codorus St Pk which has great fishing(for this part of PA). Bass, Walleye, Northerns and panfish.
Where in PA relocating to?

Curious, is Adams county rural and country or is being too developed?
I hope it's not another case of sprawl engulfing the area.

Adams county is very interesting. The western and northern fringe are mountainous and very forested and have a much colder climate with more snow then the rest of the county (elevations 1500-2000'). The rest of the county outside Gettysburg is almost entirely rural, with some small towns and a few small suburban clusters. There has been a noticeable increase in Mexican immigration due to the fruit orchards. There are even little Mexican shops and general stores along the rural roads in Adams county, something you don't often see outside of California and certainly not anywhere else in rural PA. Gettysburg is a medium sized town, which is engulfed on the eastern side of suburban development. The western side which has the battlefield has been spared much development, but there are still a lot of homes going up.

My son will be going to Gettysburg College next year and I am relocating with him. What is the cost of land there? Costly to build or still reasonable? On the battlefield side or the other side? I just wanted to build a nice cottage on a wooded piece of land, seems like a nice place. What say you?

I will respectfully disagree. People travel from all over the country to fish this area. The Conocoheague Creek is known to be some of the best trout fishing in the country. There are also state game lands that are some of the most plentuful around for White Tail Deer and plenty of camping and hiking too. I suppose it depends on what type of fishing you want to do.

Also, further up I-81 is the Yellow Breeches Creek and offers even better- world class- trout fishing. If you like fly-fishing that's the place to go.
