Parking in downtown Gettysburg can appear challenging at first glance - but we have some insider tips to make it easier.  

  • We have a parking garage! The rates are the most economical and you don't have to move your car every two hours! Find out more about its location and rates here.

  • If you don't have an endless supply of quarters, we offer a pay by phone option with Passport Parking. We recommend downloading the mobile app. Find out more about this payment option here.

  • The VIP meter spaces located within Lincoln Square and one block out in each direction are the priciest spots in town at $1.50 an hour. The other metered spaces are $1 an hour.
