Campground Reviews

We tented by the creek, it was pretty, but lots of geese-so noisy in the morning. By 6am the geese are extremely loud. July visit- cool and damp by the creek- bathrooms were super nice, pool very nice with life guard and the staff were very friendly.

My only issue was that there weren't enough bathrooms for all the kampers. The main restroom has 2 toilets and a urinal.

When I made reservations, we were told we would have site 29, but when we arrived we were told we would have site 52 instead. Site 52 had no shade and our trailer was very hard to level in this spot. We were not as happy with site 52 and it is not fair our site was changed without our approval. The staff were very nice and helpful though other than changing our site back to 29.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We guarantee site types and not site numbers unless a site guarantee fee is paid to keep a particular site number. Many people ask what their site number will be, however, they are not guaranteed mostly to provide us the ability to maximize the use of our campground with varying lengths of stay.

Pool was great, site was small. Hills were way to much for this old man.
Jul 23, 2016
Kids enjoyed the pool very much. Our cabins were clean and comfortable. Great!

Very expensive campground for our needs. Electrical power was not adequate, but not entirely CG's fault. Steps were being taken to upgrade as we left. Lots of activities for families that were not beneficial to us. Pleasant and competent staff - they did a good job. Location was very remote and off the beaten path. Stayed to be near Philadelphia, otherwise probably would not return.

Nice campground & getting better. We stay there several times a year.
Jul 22, 2016
I believe the man and woman running the campground were not very pleasant at all. There was a girl training and doing a good job but the man was making disapproving face gestures behind her. Everything else was great

IT WOULD BE ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO RATE THIS KOA LOCATION AS THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH NUMBERS AND STARS TO RATE THEM. THIS KOA HAS BEEN OUR HOME CAMPSITE LOCTION FORT ALMOST 20 YEARS AND THE OWNERS ARE LIKE FAMILY TO US EVEN THOUGH WE SEE EACH OTHER ONLY ON THESE TRIP. WE LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PLACE AND WOULD AND HAVE RECOMMEND THIS LOCATION TO ALL WE COME ACROSS! GARY AND LAURIE ARE GREAT HOSTS!

Campground was staffed by very nice, very accommodating people that went the extra mile every time. I felt like I was at home. The grounds were immaculate and extremely well maintained. The operations moved along like a well oiled machine. My hat is off to this KOA!

Beautiful campground with spectacular view of the river. Friendly, helpful staff!
Jul 18, 2016
The staff at this KOA were all delightful, bathrooms were clean, the life-guarded pool was fantastic, and the dog-walking service was an added plus. But, the wooded sites were so narrow we barely got our 32-foot camper in due to a tree where the slide out was. And when our friends came to join us for a campfire dinner, the KOA charged $5 for each of them just to be on property. Disappointing!

Such a beautiful campground! Great cabins and amenities! Love the pool, all the kid activities and the beautiful Brandy-wine river. I will definitively be back! Best camp site I have been to so far!

Very clean,nice shady sites,friendly staff!

Stop telling people to come up 169 from the south. The right angle turn on the bridge DESTROYS RVs and the one lane single lane turns are no better. Also You scrape trees and bushes that does scratch up RVs. A better route is 100 to 202, get off at Rt. 3 over to 169 and come in from the north. You are correct GPS sends you on a merry-go-round. You have a wonderful camp ground and a great staff A++

The staff were so hopeful! Thank you!!!!

Loved your campground! My granddaughter cannot stop talking about camping and canoeing 😊🌞

My family and I really enjoyed your KOA Campground this weekend. The staff was great, friendly, courteous, and accommodating. The amenities especially the pool was great and very clean.
Jul 18, 2016
Overall a nice campground. The staff is friendly and helpful. The access to the river is great but the entire campground is on a hill so be prepared. This was not a detractors for us and actually provided us with a lot of privacy as they have some sites set along a ridge. My son enjoyed the night time lollipop hunt and I thought it was a great activity to bring multiple campers together. We wer

Management staff was very friendly, campground is small and everybody seems stacked on top of one another. Pool closes for lifeguard breaks, no amenities like a microwave or coffee available throughout the day. Thought I'd give it a try, but it was just not my type of camping.

Thanks for your comments. We would like to know what we can do better to serve you. We offer a microwave in the store and coffee all day long. Our deluxe cabins are equipped with a full kitchen if that is more appealing.

Lady didn't know how to operate computer. Also failed to give me my 10% discount.

Cavalier attitude, unhelpful personal and poorly maintained facility.
Jul 14, 2016

Everyone was friendly and made our trip more enjoyable. We were told where we should go in the Amish country one day and it was perfect. The next day we booked a tour through the campground for the Philly tour. It was a little pricey but completely worth every dollar. One of the best tours we've ever had in any city anywhere. Cable TV worked great but wifi was spotty.

The staff were truly genuinely interacting with our children and dog. Makes for a meaningful camping experience!
