Drummer Boy camping resort is a Beautiful, spacious, scenic, clean..extremely clean, fun campground for a family or anyone interested in camping. We arrived July 1st and left July 4th. This was the first time ever camping in Gettysburg. Check in/out was fast, and easy. There were always about 6 girls working the desk, helping everyone that came in or on the phone. The campground is huge, and because of the holiday time there were a lot of people, but it never once felt crowded or too busy. From the pictures i was worried because i saw a lot of gravel, but most sites all had a nice grassy area. We were at site 194 and it was great. There was a huge grassy area between us and the site next to us on the right, and to the left was blocked with trees so the ppl next to us did not bother us one bit. The bathrooms were a bit far we thought, and expecially with a potty training toddler it was a hike to get her there fast enough. But we got on our bikes, pedaled about 10 strokes and rode down hill the rest of the way. The campground is hilly, but not where you can't ride your bike up and down. Very little effort is needed, and I had a childs bike trailer on my bike. The bathrooms are fabulous. VERY CLEAN..i think even cleaner than my own! Large. Never had to wait to use a shower stall. My husband was speaking to a grounds keeper and he told my husband that they like to be in the bathrooms about every 2 hours to check up on the cleanliness. There are 2 beautiful pools. Very clean. Very large. The one has a water slide. Though we didn't utilize it (there is a small fee) lots of kids seemed to be enjoying it. The kiddy pool had a soft duck that the kids can climb on and the duck shoots water out of it's mouth. Lots of kids were having fun with that. One pool has a mushroom waterfall that kids enjoy. There were a few playgrounds thruout the resort. mini-golf, for a fee. And for as many ppl at the resort the mini-golf was never too busy, which suprised me.
The laundry room near us was not usable. All the washers were not working. Not sure if they hadn't hooked them up yet, or what so there was only one other laundry room i could find. It took 2 hours to wash and dry 1 load of laundry! Why, I don't know, that was the only thing that I found discouraging. It was 41 minutes for the washer and 50 minutes for the drier. I made nice conversation with other ladies doing their wash, while my husband and baby took a nap, so it was ok.
They have a mini-theater, where i saw them playing movies on a 25" i think, tv screen.
Overall I would recommend this campground to EVERYONE. This will be the ONLY place we ever camp at while we are in Gettysburg, and we go at least once a year. It was a 5 minute car ride into town. Next time we go, when it isn't such a busy time of year, we will actually ride our bikes into town, it's so easy to get to.
I actually look forward to going camping again there. There was nothing wrong, in our opinion about this place.
