This is my third trip to Drummer Boy campground, each one, slightly worse than the last. Let's start with the facilities: If you don't look too closely, they are maintained and safe. The cottages, for which a premium is charged, were dirty. It's as if they just change the sheets (I hope) run a quick rag over surfaces, and go... More

Erin, As we responded to your Facebook review, the poor behavior of your party required that our staff enforce the resort rules for the benefit of the other guests. It’s unfortunate that, as a result, you and others in your party have chosen to react with posts and reviews detailing fabricated conditions from your stay. Nonetheless, we wish you best... More

Camp here in a 37 foot 5th. Could be tight getting in to some of the inner sites but possible. Large facility, roomy sites. The large pool with water slide is nice, but the slide is pay to use and a bit over priced. The main pool/jacuzzi next to the office could be beautiful, but needs some work. Most of... More

Is zero stars an option? SEWAGE SMELL...HIGHWAY NOISE...RUDE STAFF We stayed for a week at this campground and would have left the first day of we could get our money back. First and foremost, the majority of the staff is rude and completely disrespectful in how they speak to their guests. I thought our group was being targeted, but soon... More

I grew up in what many people would consider a big family. For many years we have enjoyed family camping vacations and my father was happy that the camping experience helped to make a strong family bond. We are all married, successful professionals now with children of our own and three of my siblings have grandchildren. The great thing is,... More

Spent the July 4th week at Drummer Boy Camping Resort. As advertised it is big rig friendly. We were in spot 504. Others have complained about the expressway noise, but it seems to me a lot of these RV resorts are either next to the expressway or train tracks. However, they advertise internet access, which is very important to me.... More

I will start this review by stating that I am a tent camper only and can only speak to that aspect of this resort. Their cabins *look* beautiful from the outside and their water/electric sites *look* to be easy to access but since I haven't ever utilized them, I can't say for certain. I can tell you that the staff... More

This is a great campground!! We were able to book a cabin last minute and ended up with a higher model than I would have booked if I had planned and booked earlier. The unit was a loft unit and it was NICE!! Having (mostly) camped in a tent, this was luxury! This unit has a bedroom with a double... More

We booked a site here last minute for a Father's Day weekend away as a family. The campground is more expensive than we usually pay, but looking at the overall amenities offered, we thought it might be worth it. What we didn't realize is when we booked sight #52 we would be camping within 100 yards of rt 15. A... More

At first, I was bummed to be given a site way I the back of the park. BUT the bathrooms were the cleanest back there. And it was quiet. We had a nice stay. We loved the pools and playgrounds and activities. The big disappointment was the water slide. It costs extra :(
