My family and I rented 3 of the 2 room cabins for Aug. 5th-8th for a family gathering/Vacation. When we booked the rooms 2-3 weeks in advance we were told we could rent golf carts upon check in. We showed up at 3 pm on the 5th checked in and asked about golf carts, none were available. This resort is...

In response to your review, we unfortunately remember your first - and last - visit to our resort. We spoke with you several times regarding the bad behavior of some people within your party. You agreed & mentioned that you had been removed from similar resorts in the past due to these anti-social behaviors and you apologized. Valid critiques are...

Everyone there acted like if you weren't there then they didn't have to work. They ride around in golfcarts looking for the smallest thing to yell about. It seems like they make up something to find wrong. It was no fun time. I would never go there again. There are several other campgrounds near there.

We really enjoyed our stay. We traveled in our 37 foot RV and had such a lovely campsite. Very peaceful and quiet. They also rent rustic cabins throughout the campgrounds. Close to all the sight seeing in Gettysburg. Lots of activities for kids, pool, waterside. Friendly staff. We definitely will be back. Highly recommend.

My husband and I went here for our 10yr anniversary. I booked a cabin for four days. The campground is quite large and there is a lot of things to do. They are a short ride to downtown gettysburg. The cabin was fairly clean. My only issue was with the bathroom. The floor was rotting out some due to the...

I read many of the reviews. This is a campground! If you want luxury then go to a hotel. We went during the week so it was quiet. We stayed in a basic cabin and used the bathroom/bathhouse which was clean and worked out fine. We swam in the pools and rode our bikes @. Perfect location to Gettysburg which...

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...

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...

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...

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....
