We come to Creekside every year for our anniversary get away without the kids. We stayed in the super site which was $45 instead of the regular site at $30. But well worth it as our awning opened directly to the stream and we had our own private deck on the creek. Very friendly laid back campground. We recommend dinner at Sal's and lunch at Garden of Eden restaurants: both walking distance!

This is a nice campground if you're looking for a no-frills place. There are several seasonals, but very friendly folks. The sites right on the creek didn't really appeal to us because your awning opens to the creek, but about 5 feet from the steep drop off to the water. There's literally no room on the site except for the slab under the awning. We didn't camp on the creek and our site was quite spacious. (Some are not though.) The staff was very friendly. I wouldn't order from the campstore restaurant though. (Our food wasn't what we expected at all: a 'cheese steak sub' was really chicken with salsa on a hotdog roll.) I would rate this higher if there were better access to the creek, the food we ordered had been at least decent, and the facilities were updated. It was clean and nice though. I'd consider camping here again if we were going to go to Hershey which is a short 25-minute drive.

The staff was very friendly and this is a great campground if you have a horse with you. But our site was not shaded at all and had a nice view of the laundry/bathhouse which was way to bright at night. The game room smelled moldy. The only activity for the weekend was Ghost Stories at 8pm on Saturday. Many of the seasonal sites are really rusty and cluttered with trashy yard clutter. Felt more like an old trailer park than a campground. It is very convenient to Gettysburg downtown, the battlefields, and the new visitors center.

This is a great, "do nothing", campground. The creek is beautiful. The campground is privately owned and very clean. You feel like family here. We enjoy it very much. Don't follow your GPS direction. When you come off of I81, follow the campground signs.

This is a very large park. I'm more fond of the smaller ones, but that's personal preference. It was clean and well maintained. The staff was friendly and helpful. In the 300's section, I could hear a lot of traffic noise from Rt 15, but the campground can't stop that. If you don't mind big and if you don't mind a bit of traffic noise, Drummer Boy is AOK.

We stayed on the full hookup Tulip Loop, and loved our site. It was large, level, and extremely private. It was difficult to tell we were at a campground at all when we were at our site. The park is fabulous for family bike rides to the lighthouse, and the Perrywinkle path is a great deal of fun. The bugs were out of course, but bug spray did it's job. We would certainly recommend this campground to anyone who has full hookups or anyone to doesn't mind the roughness of the bathrooms (not very clean and lots of spiders and bugs to keep you company.)

Fabulous park. It's hard to believe it's a state park considering most private campgrounds we've been to are not kept as nice. The sites are large and provide a good deal of privacy. The lawn was well manicured. The roads were paved. The site was very level. The bathrooms were immaculate! The campground hosts were very friendly and pleasant. Even the port-a-potty at the lighthouse was clean and pleasant! Very easy to get to: 10 miles down off I-95 exit 100. You'll hit a bit of traffic going through the quaint town of North East and drive carefully for a few of the sharp turns, but even big rigs will manage it well. We made it just fine! We completely love this campground!

We love this campground! It's wooded,but the large MHs we saw had plenty of room. The deluxe sites are very nice with wood swings and metal picnic tables. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The amenities are great. The location to Gettysburg is fantastic...close to it all, but still camping in peaceful setting. This is hands-down one of our favorite places to camp.

This is a very clean, nice campground. The staff was fabulously friendly and wonderful. The site was large and level. The COMPLIMENTARY pancake breakfast was a very nice treat. The pool, fishing pond, pier, and even exercise cabin were great. Our only complaint was that our "riverview" site really didn't have a view of the river.

The campground was clean and well kept. The site was very large and very level. We would have liked more shade on our site (31), but were very pleased with the location and size. The staff was not rude, but also not very friendly. They seem to want to nickel and dime you. They require a $10 cash deposit if you plan to leave the campground for an access card to get you back in the gate, a $2 deposit for a bundle of $5 wood because they are in milk crates and they'll give you $2 back when you return the crate, a $40 cash deposit for the McCook's beach pass that must be returned that day before the office closes or you forfeit the $40, and the shower's required quarters to use. For $45 a night, I shouldn't have to give them the extra money. Have me sign a slip that says if I don't return the access card or the beach pass, my credit card will be charge. For the other fees, come on: cost of doing business! You got my $45 a night and my credit card number.

This is an absolutely fabulous, relaxing campground. We spent the weekend here without our children to celebrate our 16th anniversary. The owners are wonderful and truly made us feel like we were their personal guests. The creek is beautiful and peaceful. We enjoyed Sal's: the local Italian restaurant and horseback riding near by. This campground is a small, family run place with a whole lot of charm. There are no activities and the only playground is nature itself. The evening before our departure, the owners made a trip to our site just to thank us for staying with them and welcome us back in the future. Very wonderful! This will be a must for us every year, if not more frequently! My favorite campground so far!

We had a great weekend in Harpers Ferry. We love this area and as far as we know, this is the best campground in the area. We were not happy with the site sizes. Many of the sites are too narrow and most of the RV sites in our area could not accommodate the RV and the tow vehicles. Tow vehicles were squeezed in so tight, it was hard to drive around in my Tahoe, much less get an RV through. The WiFi was completely unavailable all weekend which caused major concerns for me and my needs for that particular weekend. When I asked about it at the camp store, I was told it's was a hit or miss kind of thing. Please don't advertise Internet access unless it is reliable! The staff was very friendly and other than the site size and WiFi...we love this camp ground. We will camp here again (although not in the smaller sites!)

This is a fabulous family campground. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The grounds are well kept and nice. The facilities are great. The activity list is extensive. The price is high due to the $7/person/night in addition to the cost of the site/night, but I was happy that all the amenenties were included in that price. Our biggest complaints are: (1) our site and those around us (127-131) are extremely un-level. We had to get help from the CG staff because although we had some wood and 20 lynx levelers, we couldn't get level. The bed in the front of the camper felt like a penthouse suite because it was so high. (2) They rent far to many golf carts and they are the gas variety. This causes too much traffic and too much noise! Electric carts are must more conducive to the campground environment. That being said, no place is 100% perfect and we will certainly camp here again (but in a different site)!

The best thing this campground has going for it is the boat ride available across the bay right from the campsite. The rest rooms were clean, but the pool, camp store, and meeting room were old and smelled of mold. When I called a day before I was to arrive to inquire about a local grocery store, the person answering the phone was extremely rude because I had dialed their 800# which is apparently only for reservations, not information. The people camping in the cabin next to us had a terrible carpenter ant infestation in their cabin and in their bedding when they returned from a walk. There is nothing of interest in the area except the water, but not much access to that unless you bring your own boat. We will not camp here again.

I love this campground. It has fabulous wooded sites, very clean cabins, excellent, friendly, helpful staff, family fun, a quite location, and the security/staff were always carting around to make sure all was okay. This is one of our favorite locations!

This was an excellent campground. We truly enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly. The facilities were clean and well kept. The location is great. The free parking lot at the beach was a huge bonus. Our site backed to woods and was a great size. There were several activities each evening. The only reasons for the 8 rating and not a 10 are the lack of fire rings on the site, the over priced firewood at the camp store, and the fact that only 3 of the 4 pools where open when the campground was fully, if not over booked.
