While visiting Gettysburg June 4th & 5th during a cross country drive, we thought it'd be fun to break up the hotel stays with a couple days in a cabin at a campground. After researching several area campgrounds I settled on Drummer Boy mainly because of the amenities such as the water slide and mini golf. Unfortunately, at no time in any of my communications prior to our arrival or during check-in were we told that the water slide would not be open! It wasn't until we rode our bikes to the pool with great anticipation that we discovered the slide did not open until later in the season. While making the reservation, I had to indicate that I'd be bringing 2 children; a representative from Drummer Boy even called me to confirm the reservation but never brought it to my attention that the water slide and all campground concessions (except the store) would not be open at that time of the season. Despite this, their high season rates begin Memorial Day weekend. Upon check-out I asked for a discounted rate because the amenities we were interested in were not available however I was rebuffed by a very rude Manager who would not budge on her stance and instead gave me a lot of attitude. We were also yelled at by another staff member for allowing the kids in the hot tub even though the pool was freezing and we were the only ones at the pool.
