We had a wonderful trip. My only compliant is that when I called to book the reservation, I was quoted the wrong price ($72, I believe) instead of $54. When I questioned why the rate was higher than the internet quoted me, I was told that it was holiday rates. Then when we checked in, we found out the lower rate WAS correct, because our 2 kids were very young. Minor glitch.

Clean, well managed with friendly staff. Really beautiful facility next to the Brandywine river. Not the largest facility, but a great experience!

We had a great time except for the rain chased us away. Our site was a muddy mess and large puddles everywhere.

Enjoyed our stay. Clean bathrooms and nice showers. Come here every year for the river site fishing!

had a great weekend with you and my family loved your ice cream social. The only thing I would recommend is that you have more tent sites with electric and water on them!

The site was clean and well maintained. The staff was extremely friendly, and placed us on an isolated site at the end of the grounds. We had a fantastic experience and would certainly camp there again.

We had a great time at KOA Philadelphia/West Chester! The staff is super friendly and helpful. The grounds are well maintained and the bathrooms are kept immaculate. My puppy loved the fenced in dog park area! My group had so much fun and we will be back next season for sure!

We had a fabulous time. This is our most favorite KOA. We've stayed at a few all over the country. Loads of activities for our boys. Clean and well kept. Very friendly and helpful staff:)

Very nice staff. Went off season so didn't do pool, but enjoyed the playground and Saturday social. Mini golf isn't great but good enough for 30 min of killing time.

I was so dissapointed in the way I was treated by one of your team members, I had made a mistake misinterpretting your rule regarding the Kayaks - I was yelled at and embarrassed in front of my children and other campers. I will not be returning to your site and feel sad about that as I have been there on 4 other occasions. This will also result in my group not coming back which is 4-6 campsites.

A wonderful riverside spot but a large rowdy Saturday night crowd was disruptive.

Our large group of 20 had a lovely time here- the campsite is beautiful, spacious, and clean. However, the male staff member who came to hush us started off on the wrong foot. He told us that he doesn't do second chances and when he tells you to be quiet, he expects you to DO it, not TRY. We're mothers, over 30. We get it. He really could have been kinder from the get-go. That wasn't cool.

We had a great stay, and the free pumpkin pie and ice cream was a nice surprise!

Staff is always friendly and helpful. We pact a cell phone and they are going to mail it to us. We camp here every year and it just keeps getting better!

It was easy to reserve a site for my first time camping, and alone, online which made it very easy. The KOA in coatesville is very clean; the employees very helpful and frespectful. The site was private and close to the river. It was a very enjouable experience. I will return. Thank you :)

We come every year this time. Staff is always friendly. Camp store is very affordable. Pool was closed this year, which was a bummer but the creek provided a place to dip our feet.

Great amentities and friendly staff. Only downside was that we found the tent sites very small with undefined borders. We had 4 adults (2 tents) and rented 2 sites. Set up both tents on 1 site used the other for hanging out. Snoring from the guest on the site nest to the hang out site kept us awake.

This KOA is close to the train into Philly. It was the most expensive campground we stayed at at $47 for a tent sight with no services. There was a storm our first night and the rain quickly flooded our tent site and we ended up sleeping in our truck. We were not warned that this might be possible. Staff were not too concerned the next day either. Pool was nice. Area quiet.

We had a very bad experience, the site next to us had an all night drinking party with loud vulgar language. I was up until 2am due to the noise. The "quiet time" of 11pm was not enforced and neither was the "access for registered campers only" The partiers next to us (not campers) had 3 or 4 car loads of people come to there site until close to midnight.great vacility but awful experience!

It was our second year in a row and will continue to be.We have our favorite site and cannot wait till next summer.

Beautiful place, be sure to reserve a campsite next to the river!

Staff is WONDERFUL and helpful. Campground is always well kept and they have everything one could need for both RV and tent campers. Can't w ago wait till we visit again.

This KOA location was easy to get to, staff were helpful. Campsites by the river were WET - flooding has been an issue with such a rainy summer. However, we were happy in our hammocks! Bathrooms were clean and not crowded. Many fun things for kids to do.

We had friends who were able to camp the same time as us at the last minute. The staff was able to get us neighboring sites and that extra effort did not go unnoticed. Thank you for making a memorable trip, we will be back again.

Your hospitality was wonderful. Loved the Sat. nite music and ice cream. The dog run was great. But most importantly, appreciated the cleanliness of the whole camp. One item to suggest: a bathroom down by the sites on the river. The walk up the steep hill, esp. for older people, is too much!
Jul 26, 2013
It was very nice, quiet and clean. The pool was great. And the bathrooms were very clean.
Jul 22, 2013
Friendly staff. Clean facilities. Kids had fun. Beautiful location right bu river - fished from tentsite. issue was with camper noise until 2.30am which was not controlled or stopped. Will try campsite again as everyone deserves a second chance !! Hope it is a far better sleeping experience :-)

We were in a tent site on the river's edge. This campground was run pretty well. Bathroom/Shower facilities were very clean and the staff was attentive. Only real draw back was that the tent sites are at the bottom of a fairly steep hill and all the bathroom facilities are at the top. I think having Port-a-Potties down on the lower level would have been beneficial. Overall a good experience.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

KOA does not allow Port-o-potties.

They welcomed us, showed us to our site, offered us other sites since ours were very muddy after a rain storm, and were very hospitable. The bathrooms were clean and the entire campground was well maintained and kept us very nicely. Some campers even bought our fife and drum corps ice pops after we performed for them in the campground. Terrie Lamb, Director Nutmeg Fife & Drum Groton, CT

The owner and his staff went out of their way to help us. It had rained a lot prior to us arriving and rain was expected again that night. He voluntarily upgraded our stay for three nights (free of charge!) from a river front no water or electric site to a cabin with beds and AC and during the 4th of July holiday! Awesome place!

Staff was very friendly and helpful! The river (tenting) area was beautiful! Our site was great, more secluded and even prettier than the rest of the sites so we didn't mind the steep climb to get there. Bathrooms were clean, bug-free and without the porta potty smell! Loved them! Lots of fun activities going on for 4th of July weekend. We had a wonderful time! We will definitely be back!
