“Good campground near Gettysburg”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

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.

Stayed September 2013, travelled with family

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 a day. But was soooooooo fun. The kids LOVED it. Would definitely stay here again.

I was a little nervous after reading some of the reviews but overall we had a good experience.
Pros:
-Fun pools with fountains and sprays and nice landscaping
-Bathroom was clean and modern
-Having a snack bar was nice.
-Roads and sites were in good condition
-Sand volleyball court was nice

Cons:
-Additional cost for water slide that wasn't mentioned on website
-Very little staff/security presence golf carts were running all over the place with rowdy people in them. Staff didn't seem to care.
-Road noise was annoying but not a deal breaker.

Overall we had a great time. Our kids are young and easily amused by the pools, volleyball court and playground. The road noise was annoying but after awhile I was able to tune it out. The bathrooms were clean every time I used them. It seemed like most people used the bathroom in their trailers. We had absolutely no interactions with staff. It wasn't a friendly feeling place.

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.

We booked this campground with two other couples for the Gettysburg motorcycle rally.our site was near the highway so we got some road noise but we didn't mind. They told us this upfront. 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 onto except early morning and late night. We didn't use the bathrooms as we were in a motorhome. Grounds were clean and staff pleasant. The place is huge. It was a nice stay, good location and friendly people. Lots of golf carts. We would stay again.

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!!!!!
