Once again Drummer Boy Campground did NOT disappoint!!!
My wife and I had a wonderful three days staying in Cabin 3 June 22-25! We really appreciated the cleanliness of the park on a whole especially the bathrooms! It was very quiet! Everyone we came in contact with was extremely nice and helpful!
We stayed at Drummer Boy for the 1st time back in 2002 with our children in the one-room cabin and had an absolute blast. In fact we were only supposed to stay at Drummer Boy for two nights and move on to Hershey. But we were having such a good time we decided to stay the whole week!
We vowed to come back sometime and we did. This time we didn't have any children with us as they are grown. We had just as good a time as in 2002.
So we thank you for making our stay a memorable one. And we hope to see you again!

Very enjoyable stay. Our granddaughter enjoyed the pool and game room.
-- Johnia Palmer June 11, 2015 at 11:17 pm
We had a wonderful stay at your facility and will be quick to recommend you to others. A special thank you to Ashley and the staff for their exceptional customer service. The cabin originally assigned to us did not have a large enough parking space for our truck & trailer. This was quickly resolved and we were provided another cabin with ample parking.
Again, we appreciate all the efforts that were made to accommodate our needs.

We just stayed in a 3 room deluxe cottage for a weekend and it was just what we needed. The cottage was clean and comfortable. We went fishing in the pond and had a nice fire at night. The kids had an amazing time and we will stay there again!
-- Darlene K April 30, 2015 at 5:57 pm
This was our second time there. Very large pull through sites as well as the staff being very friendly. Will return
-- Tom Jordan April 23, 2015 at 2:18 pm
Great place, the staff is very nice and helpful. this is my third year coming back.
-- Steven A February 25, 2015 at 4:19 pm
This was our first time staying at drummer boy. We slept in a cottage. It was super nice and very clean. We had a blast and will be returning again in september. Would recommend this campground to everyone.

my grandparents had rented a site for a year, before they found out about the seasonal sites. After that first year, they started renting lot 31 if i can remember. for about 3 years after that. those three years, were a blast! being there every weekend, there was new activities and new adventures waiting for me when i arrived! I made so many friends. my grandparents loved it too. it has been over a year since we gave up our site :( , however, my grandparents still talk about it. they miss it, and i do too. drummer boy is the best campground i have ever stayed at. i am going to one day, rent a seasonal site for myself when i get older. i hope to let my kids have the same experience as i had. Drummer Boy Camping Resort is nothing but amazing! the faculty is amazing. the activities are amazing. the sites are amazing. AND the people are amazing.
-- Hannah Hardman October 22, 2014 at 8:45 pm
Thank you for a great weekend ! The tent site was perfect, The staff was friendly and the restrooms were clean and well maintained. I am glad I ignored some of the negative reviews listed here. We will def. be back !
-- Mike M. September 7, 2014 at 2:20 pm
This was the first time we have taken our children camping and we had a amazing time!! The resort was so nice and very clean.The staff was very friendly and helpful. Can't wait to come back!!
-- Jennifer C August 11, 2014 at 4:13 pm
We really enjoyed our stay at Drummer Boy, our cabin P5, was perfect! Very clean and comfortable. We have not been to a campground in many years but I think yours is the best one we have seen and would certainly consider returning in the future and recommending to others
-- Lisa R. August 4, 2014 at 11:02 am
I just want to let you know we had just stayed with you over the weekend. It was our first time at your campground. I want to let you know we had the best time at your resort. We have two boys 11 and 13 and they said by far you have the best campground around. This was our first year camping and we have went to every campground in the area this summer. Your resort is the cleanest and well taken care of it is just a beautiful campground. The staff is so friendly and kind. We are planning another trip in August to come back and stay with you for longer.
Thank you again for a wonderful weekend,
-- The Cassatts July 22, 2014 at 9:31 am
We had a wonderful time! Your campground offered just what we were looking for. A clean, friendly place to relax with family and friends. Loved our camp site. Look forward to returning with more family next year. Not only were the people that camp their friendly but every single employee we came in contact with were great. I did not want to leave.
I want to thank you again for offering my son and his girlfriend a night in a cabin after the storm brought down some trees around their tent site.
Thanks for the memories! I will diffidently recommend your camp ground to others.
Have a great day!
-- Michele Oakley (& family) July 14, 2014 at 8:43 am
We really enjoyed our recent visit. While the rest of the family was on the go, I really enjoyed the peace and quiet!!! DB has something for everyone!!!!
-- P. Kelley July 12, 2014 at 12:21 pm
I live near a awesome state park in western New York, but always wanted to find a place to camp and enjoy the area attractions without needing to drive for many hours. I became interested in the civil war and decided 6 years ago to look for a decent camp site near the battlefields. For the last 6 years I've been visiting Gettysburg and camping at Drummerboy at least 2 times yearly. Its a awesome park with friendly staff, Its truly a living community with privacy and great "Neighbors". The recent 4th of july weekend we spent the week in one of the cabins. We did have some minor issues but the staff quickly fixed and made our stay comfortable and awesome! If your looking for a quality camp site take it from someone who lives in the backyard of one at home. These people who run this site have got it together
-- Lance A. July 11, 2014 at 1:54 pm
We stayed here on memorial weekend and rented a cottage. We were located up front by the front pool area and close to the snack bar and office. The campground is very large, we had to drive up to the other pool area where they had the slide. It was very nice that weekend and we enjoyed walking around and going to the pools and also snackbar. Our son loved getting Hershey ice cream cones everyday. Our cottage was nice and clean. We enjoyed making a fire in fire pit and roasting marshmallows and using the grill to make chicken kebobs for supper one night. We are locals and this was a 3-night "staycation" for us, it was fun because we had never been there. You do hear some road noise from route 15, but other than that it was pretty quiet.
-- Suzy S. July 7, 2014 at 2:04 pm
My entire family truly enjoyed our stay at your campground. We stayed in a one room cottage which was handicap accessible for my father. It was beautiful. My sisters also rented cabins, and a deluxe cottage. My children, nieces, nephews and us adults all had a wonderful time. Your staff is absolutely amazing.
The only downfall was having to pack up and make the long journey back to Mexico, NY. Thank you again for the wonderful hospitality. My father has not been on a vacation since my mother, his wife of 42 years, passed away. It brought joy to our faces to see him smile again. It is nice to know that we have a whole year to start planning and saving money for our next vacation with you all.
We even made "friends" with some of your permanent campers, their first names were Todd and Larry and they camped somewhere around my sister who had the deluxe cottage 5. They invited us to their camp and made us all feel as if they knew us for years.
Thank you again,
The entire LaBarge Family.
-- LaBarge Family June 30, 2014 at 1:23 pm
Been there twice...ground area and bathrooms are well kept and clean..Impressive!
-- Mary N. June 28, 2014 at 9:56 am
Super clean, Lots of room for activities, events are organized for kids almost every weekend and the wifi is faster here than at my house!
-- Daniel R June 28, 2014 at 9:51 am
My wife and I along with our 4 grandchildren just left after spending 4 nights in a loft cabin. The kids had the best time especially at the pool with the slide. Our cabin was very nice and clean. We had a problem with the cabin when we got there, but they went out of their way to make up for it. Such a great place and we will stay there again.
-- steve wesley June 20, 2014 at 4:20 pm
My wife and I just completed a 4 night stay at Drummer Boy and we can attest to a wonderful experience. The park is clean, trouble free, the staff excellent to work with, the washrooms are top notch compared to most any other campground. We pulled a 31' toy hauler in to a clean, level site with easy hookups and ample space between other campers. Camp roads are in excellent condition. We would highly recommend this campground to any RV'er.
-- June 12, 2014 at 1:37 pm
Absolutely Amazing time and place to be with family!
-- Shawn M June 6, 2014 at 9:10 am
My family had a wonderful experience at Drummer Boy this (2014) Memorial Holiday. We stayed 7 nights in 2 premier loft cabins side by side on the fishing pond. Could not have asked for a more friendly, clean and beautiful accommodation. We are not “campers” and the cabins were spacious, pristine clean and provided all the amenities needed to house and feed all 16 of us. Outdoor space was pleasantly appointed with enough privacy and access to all activities. We spent many hours fishing (and catching fish) in the pond. We highly recommend Drummer Boy Camp Resort for families to just get away or to enjoy the Gettysburg Historic experience. Perfectly located, close and yet not too close to get away from it all. Thank you for a vacation to remember.

Fabulous! Clean restrooms that are air conditioned. One mishap--last night after most people had showered, the shower drains got clogged up....eeeeuuuggghhh. They ought to look into that. The swimming pools are beautiful. The regular pool is a nice size, architecturally pretty to look at, and there's a hot tub there for the adults. The activity pool is really big and an AWESOME time, especially for kids. The campsites are spacious, and you can choose a wooded site or an open site. Very family and doggy friendly. Fishing pond is stocked and gorgeous. We will definitely be back.....this is the type of place you could rent for the whole summer with an RV and not be upset that you aren't at the shore!
-- Maria W. May 11, 2014 at 10:39 am
Every year I come up and try to stay at a different place although I was favoring artillary ridge until I stayed here from the time of reservations to check in the staff all of them have been excellent even let us check in early and very accommodating the cottage number 6 was great clean and lots of room. The grounds are kept nice. I give it a ten and definitely coming back again. Also give a shout out the the maintenance crew we sat and watch them bust their asses to get all the cottages and cabins together for people checking in. They take pride in their work. Great job
-- April 18, 2014 at 10:41 pm
We are seasonal campers at Drummerboy and this is our 3rd year. We love it!!! We have met so many new friends.... Again we love it and wouldn't go any other place to camp seasonal.
Debbie & Jeff Childs
-- Debbie & Jeff Childs April 15, 2014 at 12:18 pm
Very nice well kept campground. Very friendly staff. Strict on rules and quiet time, that is much appreciated when you have a little one..
-- Kendra B. April 12, 2014 at 12:18 pm
Awesome place to camp! Kids had a great time!
-- Tina S. April 12, 2014 at 12:16 pm
Big. Well run. Clean. One of the best campgrounds we've ever stayed at.
-- John L. April 12, 2014 at 12:16 pm
This park is amazing. The staff is super friendly & very helpful. It is much more affordable than other surrounding campgrounds in the area as well. I love the fact that you are allowed to take your own golf cart and the fact that they take quiet time seriously. Can not wait to go back this year!
-- Kendra B. March 18, 2014 at 12:57 pm
Sad to say, We no longer live in Maryland but in 2002 and 2003 and 2004 we did camp at the Drummer Boy camp grounds and I truly miss our stays there. Everything was always so clean and welcoming. I bought a red and black jacket with native American designs on it at the store in 2003. I wear it all the time and have had hundreds of people ask where I got the coat. Everyone wants one like it. Your staff was wonderful, friendly and very helpful to us. We miss our stays at the Drummer Boy grounds.
-- Donald and Mary Williams February 16, 2014 at 10:05 am
We had such a great time this weekend. Could not believe all of the fun activities that were offered. We loved your haunted house. Tons of fun the whole evening!
-- Evan D October 29, 2013 at 7:57 am
Had a good time the weekend of October 25th 2013 even though it was cold. Hopefully many people do read this section of the website. Be carful not to leave anything behind in a rest room as not all campers are honest as I found out when I left my black Harley jacket hanging in the bathroom stall on Friday evening and when went back to get it and it was gone. I thought someone found it and turned it into the office but as of Sunday had not been turned into the office. Hey so I gusess for this dishonest person Merry Christmas I hope you can wear this jacket without a guilty concious, I know I couldn't. oh by the way this is no fault of the campground my own mistake.
-- J Harris October 28, 2013 at 3:39 pm
Wonderful, wonderful weekend. We had so much fun at the haunted house!! I don't think I have screamed like that since I was a kid! Thank you!
-- Jane P. October 28, 2013 at 9:40 am
LOVED the haunted house! Thank you for the screams and laughs! What a great weekend!
-- J Rand October 25, 2013 at 8:52 am
We attended the Halloween weekend at your campground. Our family is big on the holiday so we were pleased that there were so many activities offered. The haunted house was unbelievable. We were expecting bales of hay and corny decorations. When we went to attend we were pleasantly surprised. Not only was it better than we expected, it was so much fun we went through both nights. Thank you!!
-- C Piolia October 23, 2013 at 8:43 pm
Thank you for the great family fun last weekend! We saw the haunted house being built a few months ago and had to come back to see it. Glad we did, we had a wonderful time. Great job!
-- J. Abmae October 23, 2013 at 4:01 pm
I went to the haunted house on the advice of a friend and could not have had more fun!!! I spent the whole time running and screaming. I will definitely be back next year - it made me feel like a kid again! Thanks for a howling good time!!!!!
-- Cynthia B October 23, 2013 at 1:47 pm
The haunted house was fantastic! Each year it just seems to get better and better. Those folks really know how to scare! I look forward to returning to your beautiful and fun campground.
-- J Meredith October 22, 2013 at 10:55 pm
Great weekend! The haunted house was incredible!
-- Tyler October 22, 2013 at 5:43 pm
What a great stay! We had so much fun this past weekend at your campground. It was our third year attending Halloween themed weekends. We were not disappointed. The haunted house had become a must on our fall camping trips. We are still talking about it! Great job!
-- D Inet October 22, 2013 at 12:01 pm
Wonderful weekend stay. We attended the haunted manor and could not believe have great it was. We have attended other Halloween activities at other campgrounds but have never experienced such of an elaborate one at a campground. We loved that it was suitable for kids but more importantly also enjoyable for adults. We went back through the second night because the first night was so much fun. We appreciated the chance to have such an evening of entertainment. We will definately see you next year.
-- T Friar October 21, 2013 at 7:39 am
Just spent 3 nights over a Halloween celebration weekend- but we had no kids, just 4 adults coming up to see the trees from our motorcycles. Loved your campground, enjoyed seeing the decorations and the kids, dogs and adults dressed. Maybe next year we can borrow some grandkids! We will be back!
-- Sharon K October 20, 2013 at 10:33 pm
Loved the haunted house. Thank you so much. Reminded me how much fun Halloween can be!
-- J Reary October 18, 2013 at 10:29 am
Second year attending Halloween activities at your campground. Had fun last year but had a blast this year. The haunted house keeps getting better. Thank you for offering such a fun activitiy. Loved the hayride as well. Nice way to see the campground. Thank you again. We will see you again soon!
-- Dana Ruce October 17, 2013 at 12:08 pm
Had so much fun at your haunted house! Thank you for offering such a fun event. What a great way to end camping season. Hope to see you next year
-- Jen stahl October 15, 2013 at 6:57 am
Had a great time last weekend. We went through the haunted house and it was AWESOME. Great addition to our stay. The folks there did an amazing. You could really tell they put a lot of time and effort into making it so good. It definitely added a huge bonus to our stay and we will be making sure to do it again next year.
-- Stan Shultz October 14, 2013 at 5:12 pm
Thank you for a great stay. Though the weather was unpleasant our first night, we has a great time last night. We attended the haunted house and were amazed at how elaborate it was. It was far better than we ever expected at a campground. Thank you to your staff for offering such entertainment. We will be sure to tell our friends.
-- Richard Tempe October 13, 2013 at 10:43 am
We camped last weekend and has a wonderful stay. The kids loved the hayride to get cotton candy. What a wonderful surprise to be able to attend a haunted house at no charge. We appreciate the activities your campground offered for all she groups. The hayride was perfect for the young children while the older ones in our group looked forward to attending the haunted house. Great job at making our wekebd memorable without breaking the wallet. We hope to return soon.
-- S Wheire October 11, 2013 at 7:10 am
Loved the haunted house! Excited to see what these talented folks pull off every year, AMAZING!
-- FNM October 7, 2013 at 5:49 pm
Great visit this past weekend! We were there a few weeks back and saw the haunted house being built and couldn't wait to come back. Glad we did, it exceeded our expectations. Hoping to bring some friends back before it is over. Our whole family had a lot of fun.
-- D Stal October 7, 2013 at 3:10 pm
SAKATS is fantastic...
-- Chris October 7, 2013 at 8:01 am
Our first stay at Drummerboy was this weekend, we will definitely be back. Beautiful large sites and friendly staff. Very clean and spacious campground.
-- Kathleen Thompson September 29, 2013 at 7:56 pm
We had a great time. Elvis rules!!!
-- Jim R. September 16, 2013 at 10:17 am
On behalf of the Cardinal Club I as the North East Regional Leader would like to thank everyone at Drummer Boy for making our Rally a success. Special thanks to Burt and Diane. They all loved the park and their sites, so once again I thank you.
-- Illona and Bud Lucas September 16, 2013 at 10:16 am
I was there for the 150th Anniversary and loved the campground so much, I wanted to return before moving out west.
-- Danielle R. September 15, 2013 at 9:54 am
I just wanted to say thank you for making our week at Gettysburg wonderful. Everyone that we met on staff was positive, helpful and kind to us all. When we had an electrical issue with our camper this week, your staff was most helpful in finding help for us. We appreciate this so much. This was our second visit to Drummer boy and are talking about our return visit.
Thank you so much for your campground.
-- Margaret and John September 15, 2013 at 9:54 am
I had a great time at the campground this past labor day. I really enjoyed the monster meet and great. We plan to be back this October.
-- jack September 11, 2013 at 9:00 pm
We enjoyed your campground tremendously. We have been camping for approx.20 years and your campground was by far the nicest we have been to. Your Surf and Turf Saturday was outstanding. I wouldn't think twice about doing it again. We will be making our plans to visit your campground again next year. Thanks!!
-- Deb and Eric G. September 6, 2013 at 9:25 am
Great stay this weekend. Thank you for all of the family events offered. Especially enjoyed the haunted house preview. The kids lived the cotton candy and I enjoyed the laughs from my wife being spooked. Great job. What a unique experience. Our family will return to your campground soon.
-- Doug Alle September 4, 2013 at 8:39 am
Had a wonderful visit this weekend. Loved the show at the haunted house, and can't wait to go through it. Wish it would have been open. You all did a great job!!
-- Clark T September 3, 2013 at 2:08 pm
So sad to be leaving after a wonderful weekend. Had an action packed stay And perfect weather. Enjoyed the pool all day Saturday. Well kept and clean for such a busy weekend. The kids enjoyed the dance and then we all went for the free cotton candy. Was unaware of the haunted house events. Hoping to talk the husband into a return stay in October. Thank you for a great weekend at your wonderful place.
-- Janice Schuty September 2, 2013 at 11:39 am
I loved my short stay at your campground! Super friendly staff: very accommodating, flexible, knowledgeable and just plain nice. Be sure to give my regards to Carolyn and Sherri(sp)!
Wow! Gettysburg was a life-altering experience. To be able to see the actual ground the brave men trod and sacrificed was humbling to say the least. My only regret is that my two sons weren't along. I will be back: two days is barely enough.
Thank you for your kind hospitality.
-- Grace T. August 26, 2013 at 10:27 am
Thanks for the wonderful time we and our friends had coming over this past weekend. I have to tell you how helpful your maintenance people were in helping us with our camper both when we arrived and when we were leaving. My husband and I hadn't used the camper in over a year and were rusty in some areas. Their help really made our stay wonderful. Thank you for having such helpful and friendly staff.
-- Pat H. August 20, 2013 at 3:56 pm
I was excited to see that drummer boy camping resort hasnt done nothing but get better. Your staff in the office was a total 10! I also would like to thank you personally for allowing us to place our haunt flyers with your resort as well. I was so pleased with our stay we are already planning a return trip there next year. One of you employees stood out above to me and that was Carolyn, she was on the mark with every question I had and even encouraged to apply for a job with you as well. On behalf of myself please thank her for as she was off today. And thank you sir for your service.
-- Mike Toms August 12, 2013 at 9:15 am
We arrived late Sunday night and used our car headlights to set up our tent-we killed our battery. The wonderful crew at Drummer Boy jumped our car and then cleaned the batter corrosion for us so that we didn't have any problems! Also, the pools were wonderful and the lifeguards let each of our children do the slide one time for free to make sure they liked it before buying a wristband- our kids are 6 and 5 so this was a great solution! We had a great stay despite it raining 8 days in a row!
-- Mary August 11, 2013 at 5:49 pm
We arrived on a Monday and left on a Friday and have already picked out what week we will return, hopefully with more friends, next year. Perfect space, we had a 3br cabin on the lake, for two families totaling four adults and three kids, two of them small. Cabin was comfortable at night and amenities suited us perfectly. We had a great time and are sorry to have to return home! Thank you!
-- Lesley L. August 9, 2013 at 8:17 pm
Thanks for the wonderful time we spent at your park. Very clean, quite, and friendly. Reasonable rates. Will return.
-- Tom Jordan August 5, 2013 at 6:42 pm
Our experience was wonderful. We found that issues presented to staff were taken care of immediately with courtesy, politeness and understanding. We will definitely be back to vacation there. I found it a blessing that there were no mosquitos or bugs to ruin a good time. We are from NY and the bugs here prevent a great camping experience. The cabin was clean and loved the fact that we had air conditioning. The bath house was clean. It all shows us that your staff takes pride in their work. Drummer Boy Camping resort will highly be recommended by us to our friends and coworkers.
-- Kathleen J. August 2, 2013 at 2:20 pm
We are very much thinking about becoming a seasonal resident. We live just a hour away and we love you campground. We were just talking together about coming 1 more time before both pools close.
Mark and Carolyn
-- Mark and Carolyn July 22, 2013 at 5:12 pm
Burt et al;
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the hospitality of your staff.
We were ablel to stay in space 200 (normally reserved for seasonal RVs). Gifted by the grace of God, there was a Robin who was sitting on three eggs where she had built a nest on a water hose reel mounted to a tree next to the electric panel box. Unfortunately, we were not able to stay log enough to see the eggs hatch even though we watch her every day.
If you have the time and energy, please stop by the nest and if possible, take a picture when the eggs hatch and send us a copy.
Thanks again for a wonderful stay.
-- Phil Carroll July 22, 2013 at 5:02 pm
Thanks to all of the Drummer Boy staff for providing us with a wonderful vacation experience in Gettysburg.
The cabin, # 22 was perfect & we are already planning for a return trip in the fall.
Thanks again & have a terrific summer season.
-- The Hogues July 11, 2013 at 10:07 am
I just brought my family to Gettysburg for the reenactments. We used the bus shuttle. It made it easy for us to get to the events. The camp was located close to everything. The kids enjoyed the pool and water slide. The cottage and cabin were very nice. They were clean. The bath house was close to my cabin. The staff was helpful and very pleasant . I have been planning this trip for 2 years. It was great. Thank you.
-- Mary Ann Peterson July 9, 2013 at 5:36 pm
I would personally like to thank Peg and Sherri for their help during my stay there. Our beloved dog Lady passed away while we were at your resort. Both Sherri and Peg tried to help find a vet and also were there to console me when we realized there was nothing else we could do to help Lady. They then left flowers and a card at our site.
Please let them know how much I apprecitate what they did. Thank you to you and your wonderful staff.
-- Bonnie H July 8, 2013 at 10:12 am
Hi, we just stayed with you over the last week and I just wanted to say thank you so much for a fantastic week. I loved the campsite. My favorite parts were that it was SO clean (I loved how you kept the bathrooms clean, on the hour -- it made a real difference; and the cabin was perfectly clean when we arrived) and that all of those representing Drummer Boy were so friendly, helpful and just generally pleasant. You all made sure we felt welcome wherever we went around the campground and during campground events. Thanks so much for making our family vacation wonderful and memorable for all of us, from adults down to the littlest kid. We will miss our cabin home.
-- D. Buckman July 8, 2013 at 10:09 am
We enjoyed our stay with you very much.Thank you. The cottage was perfect. Close to all the attractions. Beautiful place to stay. Would come back.
-- L Griebel July 7, 2013 at 3:59 pm
We have been coming to Drummerboy for about 5 years. We love it there. The sites are a great size, and you have lots of activities. We love coming for Halloween. Every year our group gets bigger expanding to the cabins now too. Recommend this campground tremendously!!!!
-- Carol C June 27, 2013 at 6:02 am
Thank You so much for having us. We had a nice time. When we come back to visit the battlegrounds, we'll look you up. The pizza and Ice cream were great!
-- R. Little June 24, 2013 at 12:17 pm
It was a pleasure staying with you, we absolutely love the place and will be back. Your staff is so accommodating and friendly.
-- A. Lehman June 24, 2013 at 12:16 pm
We had a great time as always. Staff is always so helpful and courteous. Everything is clean. We are coming back in November and may have to schedule something again this summer. Thank you for making it so relaxing to come there
-- J. Pampuro June 24, 2013 at 9:41 am
The place was amazing. Clean,well kept and great people staying in area sites. The bathrooms far exceed any campground I have ever stayed in your area. We will be back.
-- Streett May 6, 2013 at 1:45 pm
We visited Drummer Boy first time last yr 2012and loved it. The staff and people there were very nice and the camp ground is clean.
-- John&Stacey Few May 3, 2013 at 11:32 pm
The campsites are clean and level and they had good access for our 31 foot travel trailer. The bathhouses/restrooms are also clean and there are many of them through the campgroundThis campground, unlike others we have stayed at, has ample sized lots. You don't feel cramped or that you are on top of your neighbors. There is a good balance between the number of seasonal campers and those visiting for shorter timeframes. We have found that most everyone has been extremely pleasant, and that is one reason why we became seasonal campers for this (2013) season.
In summary, we've been very pleased with Drummer Boy. This year, it will be very busy, since it is the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. Be sure to book well in advance if you are going to stay here.
-- Tom H. April 29, 2013 at 1:43 pm
My husband and I were referred to this campsite by a seasonal guest at the campground. We were amazed at how friendly the staff were and how clean the cabin and campground was. It is such a beautiful and amazing place to go. We will definatly we back soon!

We attended the haunted house in Octoer. LOVED it! When will the dates be announced for this year? Great job Drummer Boy!
-- Thomas February 9, 2013 at 9:41 pm
Attended the haunted house back in October. What a fantastic time we had! We have been checking back for future dates to be announced. We plan on attending again. Our family had a wonderful weekend with you and plan on returning. Thank you.
-- Monica J. December 29, 2012 at 8:17 am
Thank you for a wonderful stay at your campground. We loved all that you offered over the halloween weekend that we stayed. The children loved the activities, and we loved the haunted house. We will be coming back next year to enjoy them all over again. Thank you!
-- Renea Wonal December 9, 2012 at 8:55 am
We had a wonderful weekend. We did attend the haunted house and very much appreciated the FREE event that you offered. Kudos to your staff for offering such a wonderful event free of charge during our stay. We are so used to camping at areas that like to nickel and dime families for events while they camp. All of the halloween events that we attended during our stay were free of charge and kept the children more than entertained. We will be back!
-- Sara Pleza December 2, 2012 at 9:29 am
Loved our visit. We had a few families that camped together. We attended your haunted house with the children. We appreciated that you gave out glow sticks for the kids so the actors knew not to scare them too badly. Great idea. We also enjoyed the trick or treat event. Nice family weekend.
-- Jean n November 29, 2012 at 7:08 am
Thank you for an awesome time at the haunted house. We have been through two years in a row and found it better than one that we paid 25.00 a person to attend! We saw it being built early in the season and came back to attend again. It keeps getting better. Great job drummer boy!
-- Mark Walker November 28, 2012 at 2:56 pm
Wonderful visit! Enjoyed the haunted house very much. We have been to other haunted houses that campgrounds have done, and it was more of an event that you could tell that was put together the night before. Not the manor! It was very well done. We appreciated something so organized to be offered for your guests. We appreciate the page with all of the pictures and were able to find some that we were in! We have been checking the website for next years dates. We hope to see you again in October.
-- Sue Knott November 28, 2012 at 7:46 am
Than you for the awesome haunted house. It was great to see my friends have such a good time. The tall monster scared my girlfriend. We all had a blast.
-- Paul November 27, 2012 at 2:51 pm
OUR FAMILY HAD A GREAT TIME THERE LOTS OF KIDS AND THINGS TO DO. WE WILL DEF BE BACK ITS OUR NEW VACATION SPOT EVERY YEAR. THE STAFF WAS AMAZING AND VERY HELPFUL.............SEE YOU SOON GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!
-- ann November 27, 2012 at 1:53 pm
Had a great visit to your campground and the haunted house was awesome. We got to meet the zombie the one night! I will be back with friends next year!
-- David November 25, 2012 at 8:54 pm
Our family attended your campground during the month of October. Our cabin was a real treat for our family. It was spacious and comfortable. The kids enjoyed the halloween activites very much. Trick or treating was a hit, especially when we went by the haunted house. We couldn't convince them to attend the haunted house that evening, but they loved music and decorations during the day. We are hoping that they will go through it next year! We went through the one night and enjoyed it very much, and are sure that they will like it next year. Thank you!
-- Meg Collins November 23, 2012 at 12:46 pm
Great place to stay. Close to town. The cabins and cottges are a nice home away from home.
-- MIchele Stahl November 22, 2012 at 7:17 pm
We will be back for at least one of the halloween weekends. LOVED the haunted manor! Second year attending, we will be back! Thank you!
-- April Tanod November 18, 2012 at 9:29 pm
Thank you for a wonderful visit during the Halloween Season. We came to the campground on a suggestion from someone we met over the summer to experience the activities that were offered. We were told to come to check out the haunted house, and are we glad we did. It was a great time for us all, and since it was all adults camping, it was nice that there was something for the adults to enjoy, on top of all of the other activities offered. We enjoyed the golf cart parade (though we did not enter) and the costume contest. Most of the other events were geared towards kids, which made the visit to the haunted house our favorite part of the weekend. Thank you to the folks at Drummer Boy for offering such a great entertainment factor for adults. We enjoyed the large site that we had and appreciate security being present for the evening hours, to keep things quiet after dark on such a busy weekend. We are hoping to make a return visit, from what we were told, the haunted house changes each year. See you all in October 2013!
-- Chris Budwer November 18, 2012 at 1:02 pm
We went to the Haunted House you had at your camp ground with some friends that were staying there. It was cool that crew that puts it on did a great job. With more room and time this can be a big draw to bring more folks like myself back year after year. Give that crew a big thanks from me and my family and cant wait to see what next year brings.
-- Chad R November 14, 2012 at 11:58 am
Thank you for a wonderful stay at your campground. We always come during October for the last trip out for the season with our family to camp. This was a third year attending the Sakats manor. We always look forward to seeing what you come up with every year and are never disappointed!! Our family enjoys Halloween very much and you never let us down. Already excited for next year. See you then!!
-- Alli Martin November 9, 2012 at 3:33 pm
We camped in October and had a wonderful stay. We went through the haunted house both Friday and Saturday. Thank you for a great weekend.
-- Tiffany November 9, 2012 at 8:21 am
Halloween weekend was a pleasant experience. The kids spoke of the cotton candy and the pumpkins that sang for days. We had never taken them to a haunted house before, and it was a good experience for them. We were surprised it was a good time for the kids as well as the adults. We appreciated the events that Drummerboy offered for the holiday weekend.
-- Michelle November 7, 2012 at 8:46 am
We absolutly love staying at the campsite. Staff is the best. love to come because I can actually relax for my entire stay. I tell everyone I know how great it is there.
-- Frances M. November 6, 2012 at 11:52 am
We atteneded your campground during October. We were told to give it a try to come check out your Halloween activities. Were we in for a treat! Not only did we enjoy the wonderful weather for trick or treating, we attended the haunted house for the meet and greet with the Helicopter Zombie. It was the highlight of our weekend. The gentleman was very friendly and our teenage daughters had their picture taken with him. We knew there was going to be a haunted house, but we had no idea what we were in store for. It was amazing, well done! Thank you for a wonderful weekend at your campground, it is hard to find things to do with children ranging from 5-17 that makes everyone smile, and we left with many smiles from our stay.
-- Tina S November 6, 2012 at 6:58 am
I just wanted to thank the gracious Crew 165 for including me as part of this year's Sakats Manor, and to thank Drummer Boy for encouraging and assisting these hard-working and dedicated folks with the hautned house.
As a first-time guest, and featured "zombie" personality, it was a great opportunity for me to see first hand the selfless and heart-warming efforts of the Crew 165 volunteers. I also was able to meet families of those afflicted with cystinosis, some of whom traveled many miles to be there. God bless them for their spirit, their community-mindedness and the friendship they extended. I hope my small contribution to the cause made it worthwhile for all the work they did just setting up a nicely lighted "booth" in front of the haunted house. It was great to meet the fans, of course, but even greater to help support this cause. Thanks to all who helped!
-- Jim Krut November 5, 2012 at 8:38 pm
We camped over the last Halloween weekend at Drummer Boy. Previous years we have camped elsewhere for another campgrounds activities. It was our first stay at the campground and we were impressed. The campground was clean and the staff very friendly. The activities were wonderful. We enjoyed the trick or treating followed by a hay ride. We especially liked the haunted house. Thank you for offering many family oriented activities for the weekend. Our stay exceeded our expectations and we will be returning next year. Thank you.
-- Steven Greter November 5, 2012 at 12:09 pm
We stayed here over one of the Halloween weekends this October and had an amazing time. We went through Sakats Manor, which was awesome! The people who built it did a great job. It was very well done, scary, and good for even the the youngest kids in the line. We will definitely be coming back to go through it next year and to support their cause. I think this is a new family tradition for Halloween. Thank you Drummer Boy and the crew at Sakats Manor for showing us a great time!
-- Stan Morgan November 3, 2012 at 11:54 am
Spent the weekend and had a wonderful time. Sakat's Manor Haunted House was very exciting. Can't wait to see what they do next year.
-- Shirley Rozik October 31, 2012 at 1:15 pm
I did have a great time, the haunted house was great. It was nice to camp with friends who have seasonal sites. The lots were a good size and checking in was a breeze with having a person out front. Thanks again, I will camp again a Drummer Boy.
-- Thanks Ann October 29, 2012 at 11:38 am
I was at Sakats Manor haunted house this past weekend and thought it was fantastic! And for such a needy cause! Crew 165 are so hard-working and have done a fantastic job!
I would like to thank you for allowing them to do this for the Cystinosis Research Network year after year and for allowing the public in for the first time this year. Please continue to make this available for the public in future years so that they can raise the maximum amount possible.
Thank you so very much,
-- Jeff Leinbach October 22, 2012 at 2:07 pm
What a wonderful week we spent with you. We were there for the Samoyed 2012 Nationals. Everything was perfect and the cottage was so comfortable. Thank you again.
-- Bobbi Davis October 2, 2012 at 4:29 pm
We were at Drummer Boy for 9 days in July 2012 we had our 3 geansons there. We had a great time the place was very clean and the staff couldnt have been any better. There was one not so nice day at the activity pool a group of not so nice people were doing some fowl things, ( they were adults) the life guard went over and spoke to them right away and with in miniutes the Mgr. was there also. I think that was great they didnt want anything inaproate going on in their campground. It truly is a family campground. We are going back this weekend. We will continue to camp there.
-- Illona Lucas October 2, 2012 at 4:27 pm
What a wonderful time my family had at the Drummer Boy Resort. We are hoping to join you guys again next fall for another Family Reunion!
Your place is just awsome!
-- Debra Foster September 24, 2012 at 9:54 am
Our 3rd visit to Gettysburg but our first stay at Drummerboy. Very pleasant relaxing campground. Very clean and well maintained. We loved the "real" bed after a long day at the battlefield. The small fridge was a pleasant surprise. We will defintely stay here on future trips.
-- D Bradshaw September 23, 2012 at 8:59 am
I wanted to thank you for being very accommodating during our stay (9/7-
9/9).I very much enjoyed myself and had a wonderful visit with my family. I found your campground very clean and the people (both staff and visitors alike) were very pleasant.
-- Peggy Smith September 18, 2012 at 9:21 am
We stayed at Premier Cottage 3 and we had a great time. The staff were helpful and the place was clean. It was a wonderful experience. We'll be back!
-- Victoria August 29, 2012 at 3:55 pm
firts time staying at your campground, was very clean, alot to do wonderful place to stay many things for kids to do and close to many attractions. Staff was very helpful and friendly will come again.
-- Sharon Konnerth August 25, 2012 at 3:10 pm
Just wanted to say we love Drummer Boy! I joke that we don't camp but rather we "glamp" (glorified camping). Our very first visit was in a regular cabin and now we stay in the premier cottages on the lake. We love having the beds and kitchen and still have the outdoor feeling with the big deck, fire pit and lake out front our cabin. We are coming back for our third visit this Oct and cannot wait. The cabins and campground are always clean, guests next to us have been great. Counting down the days until we return! Another plus is how close they are to "main street" and all the activities.
-- Lauren August 24, 2012 at 11:22 am
Just wanted to say thank you for a great week for us at the campground we really did enjoy it, we are planning on this being a yearly tradition for my family. Thank you so much for all your help and we loved the cabin by the pond .
-- Terrie Mabe August 20, 2012 at 1:24 pm
This has been our second year as a seasonal camper here at Drummer Boy and we have been very happy. Before choosing a campground, we searched all over northern VA, northern and eastern MD and southern PA. No other campground even came close to Drummerboy. They were not as clean, nor where the sites as nice. The weekly activities just sweeten the deal. We will be at Drummerboy for years to come.
-- HE August 16, 2012 at 3:59 pm
It has been years since I had been at Drummer Boy. My how things have changed. The park is very large now . The loft I was in , was super clean and the Staff was amazing. I was losing air in my tire and one of the housekeepers who's name was Scott was cleaning next door to my loft and he stopped what he was doing and asked if he could help .It was so nice to not have to search for someone to help and have a staff member offer with a smile on his face.I highly recommend and will return next season. Thank You for a wonderful time and a beautiful park.
-- Betty C. August 13, 2012 at 2:29 pm
We found everything as advertised, wonderful accommodations, pleasant and knowledgeable staff, and very easy access to both the reunion site and, for those so inclined, shopping. This is a great place for families. We have recommended Drummer Boy to family and friends. We would most assuredly chose Drummer Boy should we return to the again.
-- MIke & Connie - Kars ON, Canada August 9, 2012 at 1:08 pm
We had a wonderful time.
We do a reunion every two years, have never returned to the same location, BUT would seriously consider returning to Drummer Boy.
-- Dean Shaw July 30, 2012 at 3:14 pm
Just wanted to let your staff know how we enjoyed our stay in one of your cottages. It was very comfortable and clean, also well equipped. We wished we could have extend our stay, we found it close to the Gettysburg battlefields. The staff was very friendly and promptly responded to any of our request. What a wonderful place for families to meet and as we did with our grandkids. I would give this camp a 99%
-- S A from Clearwater Fl July 26, 2012 at 12:15 pm
Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for all of the planned activities for the Christmas in July weekend. My grandchildren enjoyed it emensly. Especially the snowball battle. It was very creative. Please send our appreciation to the ladies who planned the events.
We will be back soon. We love the campground!
Thank you again,
-- Tim & Deb Golletti July 25, 2012 at 9:27 am
i want to thank your staff for all the help they gave us. When we got to your place we were in one big mess. the control to our lift for my wife got destroyed. Your staff took is a minute to help find the company an number to get the part, we had the part in our hand in less 36 hrs. Againt thank you for everything to make our stay great.
-- Doug & Ann Dingle July 25, 2012 at 9:26 am
Thank you our experiance was wonderful. We will be back. Thank you again.
-- Carol Jackson July 18, 2012 at 9:37 am
Dear Mr. Maki:
THANK YOU for having such a great place to visit! Your staff was incredibly helpful, the cabin incredibly clean, and my time at Drummer Boy incredibly awesome! I fell in love with Gettysburg, its history, and its friendly people. I felt most welcome. I will recommend Drummer Boy Camping Resort to anyone traveling to Gettysburg. It was absolutely perfect!
-- Carla M. Kirker July 18, 2012 at 9:14 am
Just returned from a great, first time at Drummer Boy. We stayed in a Cottage and the kids had a blast. The staff was very friendly, grounds were kept clean and the activities were great. Kids (2 boys and girl) were always kept entertained with all the activities. The location to Gettysburg Battlefield is great and loved being able to tour there as well. Will definetely be going back again very soon!
-- Mike A. July 9, 2012 at 8:03 am
We stayed at your campground in 2010 and liked it very much. Very close to the town and points of interest. Everything was clean and well-maintained. We would like to stay at your grounds next year during the 150th celebrations...not sure of exact dates but do know they would take in the 1st to the 3rd for sure. Would be staying a week or more. What is your availability? How soon would we have to book? And do you know approximately what your rates would be?Please let us know. We do not want to miss out on such a historical milestone. Thank you do much...kind regards,Sally
-- Sally June 30, 2012 at 1:47 pm
We have been going here for 3 years now and we love it. Very nice people and atmosphere!!
-- Shafer Family June 15, 2012 at 9:01 pm
I just recently went to drummer boy with my girlfriend and her family and it is the cleanest and most friendly place to go camping. I'll defenetly be returning very soon!!!
-- Ryan June 10, 2012 at 2:04 pm
We had an amazing time at our stay two summers ago. we hope to have the same experience with your wonderful and professional staff.
-- June 4, 2012 at 9:33 am
We have been camping at Drummer Boy for years. We started taking our children about 20 years ago and now taking the grandchildren. It is a great place with lots to do. We feel it is the beat in Gettysburg!
-- Shelley Head May 23, 2012 at 3:48 pm
I just wanted to say thank you for a beautiful park. My husband and I, and our 4 year old greyhound Monty were down for the weekend of Greyhounds in Gettysburg from Allentown, Pa. And most of my greyhound owner friends asked me what I thought about the camp. I told them the pet friendly cabins were beautiful, (although, my dog was afraid of the steps, but that was ok my husband picked him up and took him up and down to go out), lol. I just wanted to let you know we had a great time, and I'm sending you a picture of my husband and our greyhound Monty who enjoyed his walk around the park. Again, thank you again and we will come soon with our dog.
-- Jennifer and Matthew Rader May 7, 2012 at 11:35 am
We were part of the Road Trek Rally and the library was a rescue from the cold rainy eves. (We don't have a TV at present.) It was a pleasure to be @ your campground - a great facility. You and your staff made things purr right along. Of course the Seamon gang worked very hard to organize! Together you were fabulous.
-- Charlotte May 5, 2012 at 2:29 pm
Stayed Thursday through Sunday October 20 - 24, 2011. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice everything was. We took up tent sites 87, 88, 89, 91, 92 and cabin D6. We were not aware of the fun goings-on that occur this particular weekend as it relates to Halloween. The staff were quite busy, but polite enough. The bathrooms were clean, and stayed clean through the weekend. The tent sites were dirt and grass, almost no rocks or stone at all, near level. Not too bushy, with semi clipped trees that offered shade without vines or errant branches. The sites drained well even after torrential rain Thursday night. The pond is quiet and clean with a neat path that invites you to walk around it. The only downside was the population, which seemed full to bursting at times, although it is probably more a reflection of what this campground seemed to us; clean and fun. Lots of children, plus the Halloween parade made us feel a bit guilty that we weren't better prepared for this particular weekend.
-- May 5, 2012 at 1:55 pm
Dear Drummer Boy Staff:
A BIG thank you for making our get together there in the deluxe cottages an enjoyable one. Your staff is very friendly and dependable. We enjoyed our stay so very much. A special thanks to Diane for all the accomodations. A wonderful sense of "community" within the campground. Thank you
-- Sharon Patterson April 23, 2012 at 1:34 pm
We had a girls getaway in one of the cottages on the lake. Everyone had a Great time. The cottage was wonderful. The view was awesome. The staff was so nice and helpful. Planning on doing it with my kids and grandkids this summer. Can't wait.
-- Pat H. April 22, 2012 at 10:43 pm
We had a mini family reunion with myself, my husband, 3 sisters, a brother-in-law and my mother, and we wanted to visit Gettysburg where our great-great grandfather fought during the Civil War. We picked Drummer Boy Camping because they had affordable cabins close to the park, and we weren't disappointed. The cabin was super clean, and right on the pond. Nice adirondack chairs to sit in at night. The only thing I could "complain" about was the bullfrog that croaked all night...but he just made the trip that much more fun. I would recommend the cabin in lieu of a hotel any day of the week
-- April 17, 2012 at 2:04 pm
Great Campground! Had a wonderful time.
We had such a good time at Drummer Boy in Gettysburg, PA. We stayed there during the Wine and Music Festival. Campground staff was pleasant, freindly and helpful. This campground has hundreds of sites, beautiful cabins, individual private restroom & showers that are kept well cleaned, & lots to do for the kids! They have a couple of swimming pools and a huge water slide.
-- April 17, 2012 at 2:03 pm
Love Drummer Boy, nice place, had a big truck rally there a couple of years ago. We will be back!
-- April 17, 2012 at 1:59 pm
Dear Drummer Boy,
"Thank U". You all are kind, respectful, caring, accomodating and you all love what you do! My son had the best 13th b-day ever! We felt very safe! See u again.
-- April 16, 2012 at 9:54 am
Thank you for the pleasant stay. I am having a gift sent to your staff at the camp site. It should be delivered tomorrow. Could you kindly make sure the staff receives this gift. They were so deserving.
I used this address for delivery: 1300 Hanover Road, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, 17325
YOUR STAFF WAS THE BEST EVER!
