After Drummer Boy was highly recommended to us by close friends, we booked a three-night stay there in one of the cottages. There are many different categories of accommodations (from a camp site up to a large cottage with multiple bedrooms). We opted for the 'Business Class Cottage', as it was just the two of us but we wanted a...

Drummerboy advertises Big Rig Friendly. If you have a motor home over 28 to 30 ft long, you will not be able to level up in this park unless you get one of about 6 spaces. Trailers and fifth wheels have no problem. Do not go in this park with a motor coach over 38 ft long, you will be...

My family and I stayed at a tent site, we enjoyed it very much. The only thing was the tent site was a little small, but besides that it was awesome.They have different activities for the kids which my grandchildren loved.Very clean bathroom and laundry facilities. We plan on returning many times.

We spent a few nights at Drummer Boy during a visit to Gettysburg. The bathroom facility where clean and plentiful. We were bummed with the extra price to use the slide, would like to have known about that in advance.

We stayed here for only 2 nights. Very nice. The entire campground is huge. We stayed in #29. Nice spot but lots of traffic noise from the highway. Didn't hear it from inside the camper. Only if sitting outside. I am thinking that it would be less towards the back of the campground. THE SLIDE IS AN EXTRA COST. $10...

The staff were friendly and competent, the store nice, lots of amenities but rates poorly on cleanliness. At this point I would not recommend it because it's fairly expensive. If they can clean up the showers, laundry room and remove the homemade signage plastered all over then it would rate much higher. Campsites clean, nice setting.

It is convenient to the highway, Our electric was good and strong and water was too. The pool was nice but crowded. Wifi was impossible to get...

Over priced, hidden costs, and bathroom facilities are rarely in usable conditions! Staff/security is not friendly at all! Highway noise all day and night from nearby four lane highway! Will not be returning!

Water service stopped and ran dry and no clean bathrooms were provided! Management is worthless and rude! Bathrooms were filthy and cleaning crews were just sitting around in golf carts doing nothing! Park needs updated and for the prices they charge it is ridiculous they haven't!!!!! Stay away from this park!!!!!
