We give an optimal upper bound for the maximum norm distance from a vertex of a knapsack polyhedron to its nearest feasible lattice point. In a randomised setting, we show that the upper bound can be significantly improved on average. As a corollary, we obtain an optimal upper bound for the additive integrality gap of integer knapsack problems and show that the integrality gap of a 'typical' knapsack problem is drastically smaller than the integrality gap that occurs in a worst case scenario. We also prove that, in a generic case, the integer programming gap admits a natural optimal lower bound
