Campground Reviews

my friend and I were very impressed with the camp gound, esp w/ the amount of items stocked in the kitchen. We would really like to see the internet connectivity beefed up.

Beautiful location. Philly tour availability a double +. Roomy sites.In the middle of nowhere,but that's a plus.Lacked 4G not KOA'a fault but limited me. Come to this place, you won't regret it.

This was our HQ for visiting Philadelphia - highly recommended, particularly for seniors, who get a $1.00 train fare each way on the hourly commuter trains from nearby Thorndale. It saved us $100 at least in parking and gas to take the train in 3 days instead of driving. Great city to visit, we're coming back when the ICA opens again. Great site, well-maintained grounds, beautiful local area.

This is one of my favorite campgrounds ever. The owners and staff are extremely nice and always go out of their way to make our stay great!

Facilities are very good but the proximity to several major metro areas keeps costs high.

The staff was respectful and super friendly. The whole campsite was immaculate and super clean. I definitely would recommend this to any couple, family or individual for a getaway.

Even though it poured rain during our weekend, we still had a great time and loved the Wine & Cheese tasting. This KOA was also one of the cleanest campgrounds I have ever camped at. A muddy weekend, yet, crystal clean facilities. A friendly staff too. Thank you!

Extremely friendly staff showed us to our campsite. Very well kept grounds with lovely landscaping. Lots of activities to do for the whole family. Everything you need is in the campground. Very clean, flushing bathrooms - although the walk from the tent sites is up a very tiring hill. We were a little concerned that our neighbor's dog was not leashed and kept barking.

very disappointed we couldn't take the guided tour even though it was described in the book, main reason we chose your camp, and we were placed in the middle of 5 campers with lots of kids and dogs, even though we didn't have our kids or dogs with us, so it wasn't a relaxing time ended up leaving two days earlier than inteneded.

Pas pu tout apprécier (in & out de 10 hres), mais bien boisé et accueil très cordial à la réception, un peu carré pour l'escorte au site (nous ne l'avions pas attendue). Chemin pittoresque mais sinueux à la fin, il faut être prêt à sacrifier 1 hre pour faire le détour de Philadelphie cependant.

The park is a little hard to get to with a 40ft towing a car. But well worth the drive! Friendly and helpful people. Very clean park.

The cabin we stayed in was awesome. Customer service I felt was lacking. I went with my 2 daughters and they each brought a friend. After I had checked in I was told I shouldn't have been allowed to check in because the cabin are for families only. Asked if I could get 2 extra mattresses as there was enough room in the loft for them. Was told she would check into it and never got back to me.

This is our 4th time staying here and every time we come, we bring someone new with us. Everyone loves it there. What I love the most, is that its a very clean place and the employees are so nice. Thank you

Check-in went very smooth, and we were directed to our site along the river, great view! Activities for children were good, could have been a few more. Great relaxing time all around. Did not like the way I was told if I check out 15 minutes late, it would cost me. Could have used better customer service we'll say. Will return though. Know your spot, some sites on hills.

nice. Not spectacular.

We loved our back-in, full hookup spot with patio furniture up on the hill. Great proximity to exceptionally nice showers and toilets. Beautiful creek. Nice clean life-guarded pool. Great store. Extraordinary tour to Philadelphia in large comfy van. So nice to let someone else do the driving and to have a knowledgeable guide. We highly recommend this campground and their tours.

I stayed there 2 nights, complained to the administration for "used toilet paper" about 15 feet from my tent site on my arrival... they did nothing about it for 48 hours, I left tand the "mess" was still there...I usually stay there on pre-season and is generally an OK stay... the crew was clearly overwelmed by the amount of visitors. Horrible experience.

It was a great site that we were on #61. My only comment would be to move your bathroom cleaning hours to 12:00 since your check out time is 12:00. It was hard to be ready by 12 and not be able to use the showers or bathroom from 10-11.

This was our first time camping in a tent with our 4 children ages 2,3,6&7. The site and employees were completely child friendly and welcoming!! We're looking forward to coming again!!!

Le personnel très sympathique et courtois.

Overall nice campground, but our confirmation said 2:00 check in, and we made the reservation just 10 days prior. They had changed it to 3:00, w/out changing their emails, and did nothing to compensate our make up for the error. Housekeeping was great, but it wasn't their fault - mngmt should've dine something other than make us, the customer, feel guilty for showing up early.

quiet, beautiful and well maintained campground. A little off the beaten path, but well suited for city tour Philadelphia, Outlet Center visit and relaxation days at the campsite.

Very well organized and had a great stay. Clean and well maintained. Owner is a no nonsense man and took care of some issues with other guests and was very much appreciated by everyone. Staff was very helpful and enjoyed their jobs. We were there for 5 days and will go back at some point.

We came for our first test run with our camper. We ran into several issues with the camper and hitch and the staff was so friendly and helpful. It is such a clean and fun place to stay. We will be back again soon!
