I grew up camping but my husband did not so we don't. How to camp without having to buy all that gear? You go 'glamping'. We rented a cottage at this campground that was as if they dropped a hotel room in the woods! Kitchenette, full bath, flat screen, heat/AC in a log cabin small house. We had a lovely...

I want to thank management and front desk for your assistance this past weekend on accommodating Sisters on the Fly. We had to bug out from our location because of high water. They gracefully accommodated our needs and thank you so much from Allegheny River Campground. It is awesome too know that as a PA campground you could help out...

The camp is clean and was very convenient to all the places I needed to go outside of camp. I found the golf carts to be annoying. People were honking their horns and were speeding on the road with them later at night. I think the store closes too early. I was surprised by the amount of traffic on the...

As we responded to your husbands reviews, we always appreciate constructive feedback from our resort guests. We are lucky to have a lively campground with many young families - and we offer golf carts as it is the most efficient way to get around our resort! We wish you good luck in your future camping endeavors. Thank you.

I am reading the reviews about the rude staff, noise and smell. I honestly must say that this was NOT MY EXPERIENCE. My son attends Gettysburg college and I needed a place to relax and spend time with my son and his classmates. I have only rave reviews for Drummer Boy. Not only are the staff super friendly, courteous and...

It's a nice campground with flat opened sites. Roads and sites also had blue stones which made it hard to walk small dogs. Some shade trees and very quiet at night. Close to all the activities of Gettysburg. All in all, OK

huge campground. very spreadout but some sites have highway noise. facilities could use a little updating. a lot of annual sites and a hand full of seasonal sites. most of the weekenders are in the back of the resort but it works well. they are my favorite sites anyways. already have plans to return in the spring.

I used to go all the time as a kid and finally got around to coming back. We rented a cottage and loved it. Very clean and adorable. Yes you could here some traffic nearby, but it wasn't loud enough to bother me at all. I will most definitely be back.

Check-in was friendly, super-fast and very efficient. The camp store was very well stocked. The sites and roads are well marked with signage. Our stay was in October for 4 nights. No-one on golf carts or otherwise harassed or bothered us (just a note for the reviews that said they were harassed by campground management). 1st off, I would have...
