This campgrounds greatest plus is it's proximity to Gettysburg and its battlefields. It's drawbacks are as follows: 1. close to highways, road noise all night. 2. quiet hours are a suggestion, but not enforced (tent campers had generators running past midnight) 3. golf carts and pickups cruising the park at all hours. This campground would be best for groups who... More

This is one of the WORST campgrounds I have ever experienced. We made reservations weeks in advance and yet were placed on site 114 which had a CONSTANT sewage stench as it's by the septic system. When we contacted the office, the first response was that 'it (the smell) is part of the camping experience'. Then we were offered to... More

The campground has some nice campsites;but, it stops there. There is NO security. There is speeding traffic through the grounds at all hours. More to the point, Golf carts with drunken drivers cruise the grounds at all hours with no lights on. Quiet time is only a concept. It appears to be all night partying on some sites. Even with...

This was our second trip in our travel trailer. Check in and set up were very easy. We are glad we got a golf cart as the campground is very large. The pools were fun and perfect on the hottest weekend of the summer. There was a shaded pavilion at the slide pool for us to take a break and... More

Drummer Boy is a relatively nice place to stay - felt safe. There is a nice "activity" pool with a great water slide and splash pool for the kiddies. The highway noise is distractive in the part of the campground we were on (site 503). I don't see what is a "resort" about this one. It needs some TLC -... More

We reserved a pet friendly cottage. (Cottage 3) When we arrived at our cabin the first thing we noticed was the horrible smell. It was located right next to the sewage station. We walked into our cabin and noticed that it was not clean. Floor was not swept there was a ring around the toilet and it smelled dirty. By... More

We visited the Gettysburg area in July 2015. Drummer boy camping resort came highly recommended by friends who stayed a few years ago. I was disappointed in the cleanliness of the campground. The sites had no grass, just unmowed weeds. I had to pick up trash from the site so our dog wouldn't eat it. The resort is definitely dated;... More

The campground was large and our pull through site was in the back of the campground. We were at site 302. It was nice to be able to pull through but site was on a slope and fire pit was at the bottom of the slope. The grass was high so we tipped someone on a golf cart to weed... More

We stayed at Drummer boy during 4th of July weekend. The amenities were great and the staff were friendly. The kids enjoyed both pools, camping store, and the cart parade! We have stayed there in the past and always have a good time. We will return!
