Tent Reviews

Stayed at a tent site right in the river. It was very scenic and peaceful there.

This campground is well maintained. There are lots of activities for kids, and the staff is very friendly!

I would absolutely recommend my stay at KOA, however I was disappointed in how much we paid versus what we received. The camp sites are not very large, one on top of the other with little to no privacy. As much as I LOVED the scenery and river, $80 seems a bit steep compared to what you can get at other campgrounds, which is half the price, a bigger lot and more privacy. Prices need to be lowered.

We had a great stay! We arrived late and our reservation was waiting for us at check in. It was easy to find our site and the Rangers were very friendly late at night when qe were setting up. The facilities were nice and well maintained. We wish we could have stayed longer, but can't wait to come again!

Always a nice time. Clean, pleasant and well taken care of. A definite stop to any camper that's coming to the area. Thank you

loved camping by the river, but i wish the tent sites had running water on them and not just electric.

We had a great time. We really enjoyed being able to stay right on the river. All the amenities were clean and comfortable. The staff was always helpful and friendly. We will be back next year.

The campgrounds were great and the site was bigger then expected. However, we were hit by heavy rain and our site (site 126) had water over our ankles causing us to pack up in the rain and leave a day early.

Only one in two to three campgrounds close to the Philadelphia area. The staff is generally friendly. Highlights are the cleanest public bathrooms ever seen in the area, well-maintained premises as well as the beautiful scenic location of the Brandywine. The crown jewel in my opinion, was the general store which has everything. Only drawback is that they need a small cafeteria / snack bar.

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.

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.

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.

We had a great time with family and friends. The staff was very courteous and were always around to help if needed.

Awesome staff! Very friendly and humorous.

Very nice tent site, #126. Our 1st night was a Thurs, w/only one site remotely close being used. Amazingly peaceful. Fri at 2, the peace and serenity evaporated due to every site being used, loud adult groups & huge groups of teens. We'll never stay on a weekend again. But, we'll very likely return & camp during the week. Clean hotel-like bathrooms. Fun activities. My 6 boys loved it! Thanks KOA!

An amazing time as always !

Clean bathrooms, shady sites and well managed grounds are attractive assets. The staff was friendly and attentive as well. Beautiful location!

Love this place! Loved the live music on Sat. Night and the gorgous views of the river from the campfire/tent site. Pool was fantastic too!
Jul 29, 2014
Had an amazing weekend at this Koa. Facilities are great, rates are reasonable, very pet friendly and the staff was outstanding!!! Who knew such a great escape is so close to my mundane city life!! Will be back for sure. Only complaint is the wifi only works near the store/pool area would be great if extended to river sites!!! Other than that this is a diamond just outside the rough!! Great job!

The only thing that I did not like was that the bathrooms were closed for an hour in the middle of the day. An hour is a long time for a bathroom to be closed when you have little ones. The other bathroom was a very long walk from our tent.

We love the campground, and this is our second stay there. This trip, there was a huge party of campers that were VERY VERY loud in the middle of the night (even tip past 4am). I was not sure what to do to handle it, and I did not sleep all night because they were so loud. That was the only disappointing aspect of the stay. The campground is beautiful and (usually) well supervised.

Great campground with the a very friendly staff!

The staff was great!!

I will make two comments which would have made our stay even more enjoyable than it was. The first is that our site was described as being "grassy", but there was very little grass on our site and the spot for the tent was slightly muddy. They did put some hay down after we requested it. Second - it would be much easier if there was a bathroom on the lower level - that is a steep hill to climb!

What an incredible staff. Camp was very clean. Our students loved their time there. We'll be back I'm sure.

The office staff was very friendly and they even take you to your site. Site was very clean and quiet. This was our first time there but we are planning our return trip now!

Facilities were excellent, staff were incredibly friendly, providing us with info about the area around and where we could get dinner. Due to it being early week we were allowed our pick of the no-hookups tent sites which was great. Best KOA we have stayed at (and we've stayed at a few!). Thanks so much to your staff for providing us with the best start to our holiday we could've asked for.
