We booked a two night stay, stuff was very nice and price was fair and reasonable. Lots to do for family's and very close to the local attractions. The campground was very clean-bathrooms and pools very nice. The only negative feedback, and I feel bad even saying because it is not at the fault of the stuff or owner of...

We've stayed here at the end of summer for years, renting different sized cabins deepening in how many are in our group. Cabins are always clean and have porches with a canopy, fire pits, charcoal grill, picnic table. Tv's in each room, kitchen, bathroom of the premier size and up, very cozy (our idea of roughing it) People are nice,...

Reviewed September 2, 2016

When we first arrived we were excited to see the nice sized wooded sites, but that ended as soon as we started setting up. The campground is right next to the highway, all night long cars and tractor trailers fly by. It was difficult to sit around the campfire at night because the noise was so loud. We also experienced...

Stayed 3 nights as a family in a nice cottage. Only negative was that the beds weren't very comfortable. Small kitchen, private bathroom, private front porch. Paid the same price as a hotel, but a little extra room (kids in a separate bedroom with two sets of bunkbeds) for our stay in Gettysburg. A short drive into town to all...

Only giving 4 stars due to the noise from US15 which is right behind the campground. Although access to and from 15 is very easy. Staff was helpful and pleasant, campground and facilities were clean and getting in-and-out my my 34' Class C were very easy. My family rode our bicycles into Gettysburg... the road in was a bit busy...

We have been camping at Drummer Boy for about 8 years now. This weekend we went for a quiet, relaxing time just my husband and I. However, we usually begin the camping season here in a "group" of campers with 3 to 4 sites. We live about 22 minutes from this location so its an easy travel time for us!...

We have been camping here for a few years now, in a seasonal site. The sites are spacious and there are plenty of choices of spots wooded or sunny. The bathhouses are always very clean. There are 2 pools both of which are heated and also offer a hot tub. There are 2 playgrounds which my 5 year old enjoys...

This place was great and clean. We stayed in the cabins, which were clean and had A/C. Pet friendly which was a plus. The battlefields are just down the road and the center of town is even closer! This place is a great place to hunker down for a few days and visit the great historic places.

Very disappointed to be kicked out of the pool with the sun shining bright. Staff said there was a threat of lightning in the distance but mid-August I think there will always be clouds in the distance... Even staff members had a difficult time keeping a straight face when they told us why we had to leave #notverynice

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, Kathy. Our policy is to immediately shut down the pool if there is thunder and/or lightening for the safety of everyone at the resort. We want everyone to have fun on their vacation at our resort but not at the risk of being unsafe. Thank you.
