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!

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.

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.

Always have a fabulous time here. Great amenities, fully stocked store, clean bathrooms and very friendly staff:)

While we liked the atmosphere that our tent site provided, we would have liked having bathroom facilities closer to our site. We also were disappointed that the magic show we were expecting to see was at 1:30, which was prior to our check-in time. Otherwise, we enjoyed ourselves at the pool, playground, and by playing mini-golf.

Nice pool area. Tent camped beside the river. Had a nice stay. Would recommend if you are in the area

People were very helpful and friendly. Bathroom modern and very clean. Pool nice. lots of extras for kids. Wish the Lodge was open for all to enjoy.

The only problem I had was having to pay a $10.00 site fee, the camping is expensive enough, and we have been coming (& bringing lots of people with us) for about 10 years.
Jun 16, 2014
My only complain is they pack way to many people into small camp spots. No privacy of any kind. The people that run the camp ground were excellent!
Jun 15, 2014
I've been going to the Westchester koa for 20 years and I can't say enough nice things about the people who run it. I guarantee my children will bring my grandchildren.I'll see you guys soon thank you

The riverside tent sites are awesome. Nice amenities, clean facilities, and a fun staff. It was a drag having to pay the full amount up front, but I think we only had to because it was a holiday weekend.

Great grounds and amenities. However, we were stuck by a group of Girl Scouts that screamed all afternoon and night. Their were several open sites further away, the front desk could have put us further away.

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.

We had a great time! It was very nice, fun and clean! We will be back! Thanks!

Clean, well managed with friendly staff. Really beautiful facility next to the Brandywine river. Not the largest facility, but a great experience!
May 15, 2014
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!

Great trip all around. Plenty to do and fun activities for the kids!

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.
