I really did like the place but they need a bathroom down by the tent area its all the way at the top of the hill where the trailers are. Other tham that ot is great but they should really have a bathroom at the bottom

We had so much fun using the amentities with our three year old. There was so many things to do! We went to the park, used the jump pad, and swam in the pool. We had a blast. I was impressed by how clean everything was. I haven’t been to the campground in 10 years, and we will be returning soon!

Very nice staff, clean, well kept. need to check bathrooms for toilet paper stall ran out...kinda inconvenient. Firewood prices a little steep. I'll bring my own next time. WILL come back!

Not happy with camp site. Was told vehicle would be on site. Clearly false. We had to trek all our gear up a sketchy steep path.

Very crowded. Some of the staff was rude. My husband was charged for his Fathers Day breakfast

We stayed at a creek front site. Before we arrived they experienced rain. The drainage for the pond sites with electric were horrible. Wet mud and no grass. A simple one foot ditch between the sites could have made my stay perfect, however, dealing with slippery mud everywhere was bad. The staff was great, the campground was clean, the pool was fantastic. I am likely coming back, not site.

The campground was very clean and had nice scenery. It was very expensive, however. The price had increased between when I booked online earlier in the week and when I arrived to check in. Some of the other campers were noisy, as well (music playing, etc.).

I’ve been coming to this campground for over 25 years. It has done nothing but get better with each visit!

Reserved a site a few days before and it was ready and waiting for our late check in. No problems at all! So easy.

Campsite 114 is just mud and a drainage pass through from the hill to the creek if it rains. We made the best of it, but feel I should warn everyone else about site 114. All other sites looked fine. Clean amenities, store had anything you need to camp with reasonable prices. The pool, playground, and jump pad were just right for kids. A solar cover to warm the pool in early season may be nice.

Staff was incredibly attentive and the site was really clean.

We love this campground. Our stay was during Memorial Day weekend and it was very busy and muddy. The staff worked hard to keep the restrooms clean. The activities were fun. We left with some great tye dye. This stay we chose to tent camp and we made a wrong choice. The site was not private and it was very muddy. I blame myself for not realizing before hand. Next time we will be in cabin!

Great place, everyone is very friendly, polite and helpful, always clean and very organized when it comes to their activities.

Women's bathrooms were dirty the entire weekend, lots of noise and foul language Friday night into early Saturday morning - tried calling campground management but no answer.

We have stayed at KOA twice now and will definitely be back again! Staff is very friendly and helpful, the store has everything you need if you forgot something. The atmosphere is very relaxing and peaceful especially along the river where we stayed.

Campsites are not remote at all, even though we booked the remote site. Campsites are so close together and you can see and hear your neighbors, felt kind of uncomfortable. We brought a tarp for over our tent to tie over trees but there wasnt enough trees to even tie it to. Some trees/ plants in between sites would solve both of those problems! Bathrooms&hot showers were nice!staff was friendly :)

My wife and u had a great relaxing time. Staff is always great; very helpful and very informative in many areas. Help grounds were always clean. There are improvements every time we come.

We stayed at the Philadelphia/West chester KOA as a base camp for our Boy Scout Troop to visit the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall sites in Philadelphia. We were set up in two spacious tent sites right along the peaceful Brandywine Creek. The staff was extremely friendly, the campground is well-maintained, and the bathhouse is super clean. We enjoyed our stay and we'll be back!

My husband and I love KOA. This site not only met our expectations, it exceeded them! The staff was very friendly - they escorted us to our tent site, drove our firewood down to our campsite for us, and made us feel like we were on a week long vacation even though it was only a quick one night stay! A huge thank you to the team there. We will absolutely be coming back. Happy Camping!

Had a great time in the first nice weekend of the spring!

The staff was great and the facilities are clean. Nice fall party. I wish I would have been told that our site wasn't accessible via car at the time of reserving. Not ideal with little ones and I would have done more planning.

The best KOA weâve stayed at in PA. Friendly staff, clean facilities and nice sites for tent camping. Having the Brandywine river flowing through the camp is also a plus. Enjoying some fishing and canoeing is a big highlight.

I was extremely disappointed with the location of the site that we got. Not only was the location horrible. I ended up going to another campsite and camping at Brandywine Valley Campground. Then when I called to speak with a KOA rep I was told that I would get a phone call back from the owner because I wanted a refund, I still have not gotten a phone call. I will not recommend KOA to anyone I know

First time at this KOA location and in a tent instead of RV. Had a great experience. Super friendly staff. Clean bathrooms. Family friendly. Amazing location tucked away on the river. We will definitely be coming back.

We had a very nice time. nice scenery, clean sites, and facilities and met a lot of nice people who were both staff and guests. Looking forward to staying there again.

First-time campers with our daughter. We chose a site right on the river with electric hook-up. Nice staff, as well as the other campers. Very much a family atmosphere (we luckily brought our kid's costume for trick or treating). Bathroom was uphill from the river and generally clean. I did see staff clean up after someone left a lot of mud in a shower stall. A good stay and will be back!

Please see my thorough review on Yelp (Matthew F) posted on 10/09/2017. If is much longer than the 400 character limit on this page. I believe the information provided would be helpful for anyone interested in staying at this KOA.

Loved it & great fir kids

The staff was excellent and very accommodating! I had a tent site right on the river. If there was one thing I could have changed it would have been to been further away from the canoe storage and launch location, as only a fence separated it from the camp site.

We had a great stay and highly recommend this campground. Staff was very friendly and easy to work with. Grounds were taken care of and well-maintained. My family loved our riverfront campsite. Looking forward to going back again soon!

The KOA campground was well maintained. Bathrooms extremely clean and lots of hot water for showers. I think a Port A John down in the lower tent sites would be a great addition for those night time treks to the bathroom. Long, dark walk at 2 or 3 AM. Over all, stay was very nice and close to Chadds Ford and the Amish country. Thanks

A friend and I stayed one night at KOA Philly/West Chester, utilizing a tent site. We opted for this campground due to it's convenient location halfway between each of us and that it is dog friendly. It is beautiful and well kept. We already discussed coming back again for a longer stay!

Need bathrooms at the lower level. Too difficult to walk up the hill.
Aug 28, 2017
Our stay was great. We had a nice tent site in front of the river. We didn't use any of the amenities, other than the restrooms. The staff that we did encounter was very pleasant. We would definitely stay again! If I may make one small suggestion it would be to possibly have more recycling bins around.
