Pets are welcome at camping site if leashed. We have a "No Pet" policy for all of our cabin sites that applies to the cabin camper and cabin visitors. Pets are not to be left unattended any time. We offer a dog walking service unattended; we will be happy to recommend a good, nearby kennel while you are touring. Please ask about our dog walking service or near by kennel facilities. Please make sure to clean up after your pets! Pets are not permitted in the pool area, buildings, or on the playground.
Check-in for all sites is 2:00 PM. Check-In for cabins is 3:00 PM. We cannot guarantee a site will be available until these check-in times. We recommend calling the office at 610 486-0447 prior to arriving at the campground before the check-in time. Check-out for campsites is 12:00 PM. Check-out for cabins, cottages and lodges is 11:00 AM. We CANNOT guarantee an early arrival or late check out, but if your site is available there is a $25 fee for an arrival prior to 1 PM for sites and 2:00 PM for cabins or a departure up to 4 PM. Any departure after 4 PM will be charged the full fee. You MUST check with the office to make arrangements for these options. Thank you.
Trash is picked up daily around noon. Just leave your trash at the edge of your site before noon, and it will be picked up for you. Please do not leave your trash out over night. All other times, take trash directly to the dumpsters as identified on our site map.

The campground facilities are for registered guests only. All visitors must register at the office and pay a visitor's fee. The registered camper is responsible for visitor fees, and management reserves the right to limit the number of visitors per site. All day visitors must leave the campground by 10 PM. If a visitor stays less than one hour, we will refund the fee.
When people come to our West Chester campground, we want them to engage in camping, participate in fun activities together, and relax.
Gary and Lori Levesque bought their KOA campground in 1991, but not before getting a heavy dose of company life. Lori worked as a system analyst for a large mortgage company, and Gary worked on structural dynamics in the aeronautical industry. Their careers began to require more and more travel, and Gary's company struggled with layoffs. "It wasn't fun to go to work," he said.
His parents were the first to come upon the idea of owning a campground. Gary's family did a lot of camping when he was growing up. "My mom was set on the idea of buying a campground," Gary said. "Originally I thought it would be going backwards, but we ended up buying it."
The Levesque's were attracted to the campground setting and area and are still proud to offer it to campers today. "The campground is located on the Brandywine River, in a beautiful and quiet area known for being horse country," Gary said. "It is full of rolling hills and is peaceful."
After 26 seasons of camping, they continue to build a wonderful camper clientele and provide fun and engaging camper activities. They have three grown children. Two are currently following their own adventures and one is on the KOA Management Team.
In their spare time, the couple still likes to camp and go to the beach. Gary is a Flyers fan, while Lori is writing a book. They volunteer in many different capacities, in their community and church, and in their off season they love to visit family, travel, and explore the many awesome places that exist in the United States and beyond.
