While our campsite (51) was small and awkwardly setup (the hookups were by the road preventing me from backing as far as I like), the facilities, activities, Brandywine River, and camp ground employees were superb! thank you.

A GREAT PLACE TO STAY VERY FRIENDLY AND VERY HELPFUL.

We've been coming on and off to this KOA for over 20 years. We have come in groups of four families. This time it was just two families.We stayed in Kabin 1. It needs a step from the top level to the next. I almost fell three times. Other than that our stay was fine, i really liked that site. The view over the houses was wonderful. This site is closet to home and allows us to get away to destress.

Didn't like our site. With our slides we really didn't have much room for the picnic table and fire ring. Wish our site was bigger.

a little difficult to get to

Memorial Day week-end. Found road back to campground very narrow in spots, with a big camper, not real convenient. Price seemed a bit high, maybe because of holiday? Site was nice and large, had activities for the children, which is always good. Staff helpful and courteous! Nice place to stay to visit Philadelphia or Lancaster.

Very small campsites with little space between units. Compared to other KOAs, this campground is expensive. Roads were not maintained. Wifi does not reach all campsites. KOA staff was nice and bathrooms were kept clean.

We really enjoyed our stay at this KOA. It's nestled into a great location in SE PA - close enough to civilization, but far enough away to feel like you're really "camping." We look forward to the next time we visit.

Very friendly staff and owners. This campground is extremely well run and managed. Bathhouses are clean and the grounds are spotless. We had a very enjoyable weekend with all the planned campground events. The pool was crystal clear and there was a lifeguard on duty.

Great stay, friendly staff, clean facilities and my family had a wonderful time!

We had a wonderful stay. The owners had so many activities planned for the kids. We would suggest leaving the restrooms open until after checkout -- the restroom was closed for cleaning when we were getting ready to leave and the other restroom was inconvenient to go across the camp to get to at that point. Overall, the experience was fun for our entire family!

While there isn't much seclusion offered at this fairly dense campground, the convenient access to the river and very well maintained facilities make up for it. Quiet hours were fairly well followed by the campers and everyone was extremely friendly. The major downside is the firewood sold at the camp store is not fully dried and is cut too long to fit in the fire rings.

Myself and my family really enjoyed our stay at your campground. We found it to be very well organized, clean and everyone was very nice. We will definitely return for our next camping trip. thank you

We had a lovely time and enjoyed the ice cream and pancake breakfast

Sites are not level. Staff had mixed up our group reservations. Access to campground is challenging. VERY expensive for what you get.

Friendly staff but internet had connection problem both on speed and reliability. This was a business layover and it caused some issues.

We love staying at the Philadelphia/West Chester KOA! The staff members are so friendly and hard working. The facilities are always clean and my pooch just loves the new dog park! See you next time!

We love the West Chester KOA. Lovely campground and lovely owners. Canoeing on the Brandywine River is gorgeous. This was our third year in a row camping here and it has become a cherished family tradition. A trip to Longwood Gardens--which is about 10 minutes away--is also a must if you visit.

We had a great time. We loved being able to pitch our tent right next to the Brandywine. The folks were very friendly and helpful. The shower and bathroom facilities were extremely clean.

Enjoyed most everything about our stay.

This is one of the most beautiful campgrounds I've ever stayed. The bathrooms are spotless and the personnel are very helpful and friendly. The only improvement would be better control over hot/cold water in the bathrooms. I bring a number of people along with me and when men and women are in their respective showers, the volume and temperature of the water varies considerable.

The pancake breakfast on Mother's Day was especially nice.

We had a great time - staff were friendly and very hlpful. We got flooded out the first night and had to go to a hotel, but when we came back the next day staff let us move to another campsite that was less likely to flood. The kids had a ton of fun and there wer a lot of activities to do. We will be back again soon.

What a great campground! Excellent staff, clean bathrooms. Large campsites. Peaceful.

Our stay was great, as usual. We have come back to this KOA for 3 years now. This location is always top notch. However, the corporate on-line reservation system is really poor. Both times we came here this year, the reservations were not accurate. We will just call for reservations in the future. Too bad, the on-line reservation system "could" be very convenient.
May 13, 2013
LOTS OF THINGS TO DO. GREAT PEOPLE THAT WORK THERE. VERY CLEAN PARK.

already booked for next year. great place nice and clean
