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!

We just finished our 4th of July weekend here and had a great time. Not sure what all the bad reviews are about but we found the staff to be courteous, the grounds to be beautiful, and our stay to be pleasant. It would be nice if they stocked the pond because the kids were excited to fish and there... More

In July of 2014, I took my 4 children and nephew to Drummer Boy Camping Resort for three days. We had taken advantage of a coupon that allowed us purchase two days in a cottage and get one free. The package also included golf cart usage, miniature golf, ice, firewood, and waterslide access. This was the first time my children... More

This was our 3rd consecutive year camping Memorial Day weekend & we've already booked our weekend for 2016. We really enjoy this RV park a lot. We like the proximity to where we live & of course historic Gettysburg itself. Lots for kids to do. Enjoy the large fishing pond a lot! Great biking since its so large. And 2... More

This is on a four-lane highway and impossible to sleep at night. Worse road noise in all of our camping in over 20 years. When we arrived we were told our site was a mile away and we asked if someone could escort us on a gulf cart, and we were told "you can rent one." She was clueless until... More
