My Husband and I decided to do a short camping get away for the 4th of July weekend. We heard Drummer Boy is a huge camp ground but is nice. I will say when I walked in the door for check in, everyone jumped to help me. They were very busy so this was especially nice. We made our way to our site. (50). The site is large and they have spread crushed stone on the roads and the sites. We had plenty of room to back in. Unfortunately when I jumped out of the truck I was immediately struck with the smell of septic. We also had some serious leveling to do.
Everything we were told about the size of the campground is true. You really need a golf cart if you have children and have one of the lower number sites. The activity pool is way too far to walk to with little ones. The activity pool is where the water slide is.
We encountered a few things that had more to do with parents allowing their teens to be unsupervised so they clogged the men's room and run around after quiet hours yelling and screaming. Although security did seem to take care of the loudness matter the next night.
I try to be honest with my reviews and give both the positive and negatives I experience. So to sum it up, we enjoyed our stay and I believe we will return. The staff gets high kudos! They are great! The camp grounds are clean enough with room for improvement in their buildings but the grounds are great. They have a huge number of seasonal campers from the general area.
