Drummer Boy - Gettysburg

Made a last minute reservation at Drummer Boy in Gettysburg for this weekend. Anyone have any insight to this CG?

We live 40 min away and have camped there a few times our self. It's easy to get to, very clean and close to other attractions.
The campground had changed ownership a few years ago and the price to camp there went up......like everything else, they have a nice store, pool and a water slide that was add as well, as far as the size of the campground it's a nice size and they have annual sites. The last i heard they will allow only two pets

It has been a while since we have camped there so i don't know any more then that, most of our camping is done in the Hershey area.

Was there about ten years ago. Very nice place and I would return without hesitation. It is/was well maintained, etc. However, I seem to recall that some of the sites are very close to an exchange on Rt. 15 and come equipped with a bit of road noise. Suggest you view a satellite image and, maybe, request a site accordingly.

One very patient wife and one furry child who travels with us. Forty-two years of trailering and camping, and I still have a blast.

The road noise is considerable ..... We stayed close to the road and the trucks did wake me up quite a few times. best to be on sites away from that busy road.

Other then that, an excellent camp ground, thumbs up !

Oh yes Route 15 has it's share of truck traffic and they love using the jake brake at that Route 97 exit. We used to camp there frequently when we had our pop-up near the lake. It definitely kills a nice quite evening and resting peacefully from time to time. We haven't been there for a while but my brother-in-law still tent camps over there.

As others posted the road noise is pretty bad... You feel like you are camping on the median. But the facilities were decent and your real close to attractions. Was a fun park to bike around with kids passing the lake, etc. If you can find a spot further(est) from the road it probably be better. But many of those seemed to be seasonal sites.

Just got back from there. Not a bad CG. Decent facilities. Unfortunately we were stuck up along the highway - very, very noisy. I know it was a holiday weekend, but the rates were way too high. Will probably try another CG in the area next time.

Was just there in July. Have to agree with high road noise, high price. We had some power (30 amp) issues at our site-kept tripping ac because of low voltage (finally checked with meter)=drawing too hard. People were friendly, though.
