Beautiful location on the Brandywine River. Bathrooms are very clean. Staff is always around to help, but don't bother you. Nice pool and extremely well stocked store.

Too expensive - nickel and dime you to death. We're NOT very helpful when trying to keep our party together - said everything was booked and it was NOT - did not even TRY


Thanks for your comments. Unfortunately, your parties consisted of a riverside tent site and a 1 room cabin and those particular campsites are not in the same location of the campground.

Just not for us. big drinking neighbors right next door playing radio loud and arguing and crooning. a quiet river spot turned in to a place we wanted to leave.

Music was so incredibly loud at the remote tent sites that I was unable to enjoy the stay. I love music but feel that volume should be kept at a level so not to ruin other campers experience.

Would have been perfect if it wasn't for our neighbors 2 dogs going to the bathroom all over our site and not cleaning it up. With 4 children stepping in it was a little much. Other then that was great and very friendly staff.

This was my first tent camping trip ever & this exceeded all my expectations. I met Lori Levesque, one of the owners, & she was cheerful & helpful. I'm definitely going back & would highly recommend.

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

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.
Sep 15, 2014
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.
