“Cute deluxe cabin...but pricey.”
Reviewed 27 September 2012

I was very skeptic about our upcoming weekend getaway because of the bad reviews I read. We went with two other families (11 total) and stayed in one of the 3 bedroom deluxe cabins. The cabin was clean, the kitchenette had all of the important and useful kitchen items except for an oven, the bedrooms were clean. We did have to bring sheets for the bunk beds, the bedrooms were clean and tidy. You could tell that the corners of the bedrooms were dusty and had cob-webs so it may not have been cleaned as often as I would have preferred. The living room did have a small TV, an uncomfortable pull-out couch and a dinning set for 6 people. We were surprised that the RV camper was right outside of our cabin- as much as we paid, I thought we would have just a bit more privacy but their RV was next to our cabin. The outside had 2 picnic tables and the fire pit along with an outdoor grill.

We had a great weekend visiting the sites in the area and the campground was very clean and all around quiet. The people who rented golf carts were a bit crazy and kids were standing and hanging off the sides. The pool areas were kept nice and clean, however the price for the slide was ridiculous. I think that if you rent a cabin for 3 nights/full weekend, as expensive as the cabin was, it should at least include tickets to the minigolf and the slide. During our time there, I only saw about 3 people on the slide. I believe that the campground should really remove the fee for the slide and mini golf as it is an amenity of the campground.

The activities that the campground promoted were obsolete and we did not get hear or get much information about the activities they had for kids- plus there was an extra fee for the activities.

All around- it was a nice, clean campground. Our cabin was nice and tidy. I would recommend that the campground change the policy on having guest pay for a slide that many did not use, remove the costs for the minigolf as it should be included and clean the public restroom. The golf cart rentals were also pretty astronomical and someone should really consider bringing the cost down for that. We were very lucky having our own bathroom in our cabin but one of our friends had to use the public restroom during a walk and it was horrific. He said that he could tell that it hadn’t been cleaned in days. Those public restrooms should be cleaned regularly for sanitary reasons and the fact that they are near other cabins and tent areas. Basically you are paying for either a cabin, tent spot or RV spot and nothing else is included. It should be called “resort” if most of the amenities are not included.

Room Tip: Request handicap 3 bedroom deluxe cabin- adds a little more room with a ramp to help with strollers...

This camping resort was a very peaceful, relaxing place to put your feet after walking the battle field all day. We rented a golf cart, which made going from the two pools, hot tub and our cabin alot nicer. The cabin was very nice, and very clean. It had a full set of dishes and cookware. The porch on the cabin made sitting and eating outside a joy. The Camp ground was only mins from the battle field and the town of Gettsburgh, which ment that we were able to come back to the cabin for lunch and dinner. A big plus! All in all i would stay at the Drummerboy Camping Resort again, and hope to very soon! {A} rating

We went here the week of Easter. We have an RV and LOVED the space each spot had. We took our 8 & 11 yr old to the make an Easter bag. First of all the activities lady was RUDE. She DID NOT have enough supplies for everyone and started yelling in front if the kids that had she of known how many kids were coming she would have bought more supplies. Well when u ck in don't u have to tell if u have kids coming? The Easter Egg hunt for the kids was awful. They used real eggs and all the kids didn't get prizes unless u got a special egg. Well of course the older kids got the special eggs. We were so frustrated by the activites director we left early. It was a huge issue for me as a mom and we will not be back which is a shame since the place is huge.

My wife, two teenage children, and myself love this place. Soooooo Relaxing and Enjoyable. You can do a lot here or do very little here and have a blast. Very friendly and helpful staff. This is the second summer in a row that we vacationed here, and will return again and agian. Keep up the great job. A great place to sit back and unwind! We love the entire Gettysburg Experience.
