Elizabethtown / Hershey KOA, Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $62.00
Overall Rating:

A clean, well-run RV park with many spacious sites. Events for families scheduled throughout the weekend; and daily shuttle service to Hersheypark is available. The nightly rate is rather expensive and the 11:30 a.m. checkout time is earlier than most parks in the area. We called before making our reservation and were able to snag a site on the end of a row - you're unable to specify that on the KOA website. Utilities were solid and the staff was very friendly. We camped at Elizabethtown / Hershey KOA in a Motorhome.

Homestead Campground, Green Lane, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

If you want no frills at a low cost about an hour north of Philadelphia, Homestead Campground is paradise. The place looks to be owned and maintained by a mother-daughter combo - their late father appeared to be the "glue" and handyman who kept everything running. No longer. The grounds are beginning to wear down.

When I called to reserve a site, the lady said water/electric sites would be available. Didn't give me a site number, however. We arrived at 10 p.m. and the grounds were quiet. No message at the camp office. No map. Called the phone number on the door and left a message. We picked a site at random. The following day, we tracked down the daughter and paid for the site. While the folks are friendly, they appear to be overwhelmed or disinterested in operating anything more than an overnight rest area.

No camp store. No daily activities. The office is rarely open. The electric went off around 1:30 a.m. on Saturday and didn't come back until 9:30 a.m. We don't know why. A small unguarded pool is at the lower corner of the grounds. Water looked OK, but I wouldn't swim in it.

The permanent rigs are well maintained. A limited number of sewer sites are available. In the woods to the rear of the campground are dozens of water/electric sites - great for pop-ups or tents.

Stay here if you need to. There are better choices in Bucks County. We camped at Homestead Campground in a Motorhome.

Lake Raystown Family Camping Resort, Huntingdon, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

While 130 sites is an estimate for this campground north of Raystown Lake, all but seven sites are dedicated to seasonal campers. If you're lucky enough to snag one of their overnight RV sites, you'll find fairly sizable lots with adequate shade. Cabins and primitive tent sites are also available.

The seasonal rigs are well-maintained, large and modern. The campground's owners are quite friendly and presented us with a goodie bag for our dog upon arrival (with his name written on the outside and biscuits and a tennis ball on the inside. Very nice. We purchased wood at the camp office, which was delivered to our site.

The campground is the closest RV park to the town of Huntingdon and Route 22. Ignore advice on how to get there from Google Maps and instead follow directions outlined on the campground's website. Get lost on the narrow, winding roads around the Lake and you'll be sorry. We camped at Lake Raystown Family Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Located about 10 minutes from the campground is Huntingdon, along the Juniata River. Stop at the Wildflower Cafe at 516 Washington St., and enjoy a delicious lunch in the patio area in the back. The space features all sorts of artwork and eclectic patio pieces, including a baby grand piano converted into a working water fountain.

Pine Cove Beach Resort, Charleroi, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

Small and somewhat expensive, this solid campground about 45 minutes from Pittsburgh features nice, back-in sites large enough for big rigs, a massive pool and very friendly, accommodating owners. A Good Sam discount helps. A fair amount of RVs there are home to fracking workers in the area, but their sites are well maintained overall. Water pressure is solid and the sites are wide enough that you don't quite feel like you're right on top of one another. Young trees on site do not yet provide adequate shade. Campground staff allowed us to stay two hours after check-out on Labor Day. We camped at Pine Cove Beach Resort in a Motorhome.

For $10, they'll conveniently drop off a load of wood at your site by dinnertime. You'll have enough to make a good-sized fire that will last throughout the night.

Colonial Woods Family Camping Resort, Upper Black Eddy, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

A heavily wooded campground about 60 miles north of Philadelphia, close to the Delaware River and other northern Bucks County attractions. Difficult to find; watch out for narrow roads - plan ahead. Arrived late on a Friday night; "David" thankfully escorted us to the site, which was wide, clean and flat with stones. Permanent sites are separated from transients. Most permanents in good shape. An active campground with organized games throughout Saturday for children and teens. Camp store is well-stocked, with an indoor game area. Large lake for fishing and two pools with water play-features. A high cost for only water and electric - knocked down my rating. Charges $7.50 per adult guest. One dumping station means you'll be lining up to get out on Sunday. Be sure to leave an extra hour. Trash is picked up on site (didn't learn that until we drove around looking for a Dumpster). There's a honeywagon too, but the service isn't available on weekends, or wasn't well advertised. We have friends in the area and will likely visit again. We camped at Colonial Woods Family Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

When you RSVP, ask that you not be near the campground's sole dump station (sites CC2-CC4 and C30, C32, C33 or C37). Rigs line up in front of these sites on Sunday starting at 11 a.m. (we waited an hour to leave) to dump. People in these sites couldn't leave; the road is only wide enough for one rig and there are no alternative streets.

Whippoorwill Campground, Marmora, New Jersey

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

A heavily wooded campground conveniently located near Ocean City, NJ. Staff quite friendly, although male teenager who escorted us to our site was useless - didn't speak a word of advice or guidance while we parked the RV. A large quality pool, recreation area and snack bar are available. We'll be back. We camped at Whippoorwill Campground in a Motorhome.

If you've got a big rig or trailer, let them know in advance so they can get you a site that's easy to park. With so many trees, some sites are virtually impossible to park.

Camp Swatara, Bethel, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

A very family friendly campground affiliated with the Church of the Brethren. Sites are widely spaced and there are fields for all sorts of sports. A spash pad and quality, reasonably prices mini golf course are also available for family fun. Excellent hiking trails surround the camp, including the Appalachian Trail. Convenient access off I-78 and near attractions such as Cabela's and Roadside America. No cell service (text or voice) for AT&T customers. Verizon service is weak. We camped at Camp Swatara in a Motorhome.

Madison / Pittsburgh SE KOA, Ruffs Dale, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

A nice park about 45 minutes outside Pittsburgh not far from the Turnpike. A convenient staging area for those coming from the east visiting Pitt. Sites are on a hill and the tiered arrangement makes for some narrow spots. Staff is very friendly and helpful and accommodated a last-minute scheduling request that allowed us to visit family in the area for a longer time. The park improved over last year, where construction to expand the campground was a nuisance. For early in the season, the complex is looking good. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh SE KOA in a Motorhome.

Delaware Seashore State Park, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

A basic RV parking lot with full hookups within walking distance to the ocean. Renovations completed this year make the north campground more appealing. South lot bathrooms renovated and clean. Could use new picnic tables. Not bad for the price. We'll be back. We camped at Delaware Seashore State Park in a Motorhome.

Tohickon Family Campground, Quakertown, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

A rather small campground with half of its sites dedicated to seasonals. Could be the only location in Bucks County to offer sewer - a big plus. Contrary to previous reviews, we found most sites too narrow. My slideout extended over to my neighbor's site. Several sites dedicated to tent camping; convenient unless you mind rampant goose poop. Staff was super pleasant, the campground's lush trees kept the air cool throughout the day, and its location is close to Philly, Allentown, and Trenton. We camped at Tohickon Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Muddy Run Recreation Park, Holtwood, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Built in the late 1960s, this is a very spacious campground with tight, short campsites. Big rigs can fit in an overflow area with electric and communal water. Water outlets in short supply, so bring several hoses - when we registered, the office told us how far we were from the nearest faucet, so we were ready. Campstore well stocked. Great place for biking, boating and hiking, as the park contains a 100-acre lake surrounded by 700 acres of wood and field areas. Has a boat launch with electric and rowboats available. The campground's snackbar serves excellent meals and ice cream at reasonable prices. Over the years, the campground has allowed more seasonal campers, some of which are either trashy or own dogs that bark incessantly. Further incentive to go hiking, biking or boating... We camped at Muddy Run Recreation Park in a Travel Trailer.

Red Run Campground, New Holland, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

A nice wooded park in the Amish/Mennonite countryside of Lancaster County. Park was about half full. Clean park overall, pool looked in great shape and staff was friendly. WiFi service was limited, but free. Had a free ice cream social on Saturday night. Didn't have problem with electric service, as reported in a 2013 review. Nice, fairly spacious sites available along a quiet stream; most of the permanent sites are along a public road that bisects the campground, or segregated around a large pond, away from the rest of the campground. Would camp here again. We camped at Red Run Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Elizabethtown / Hershey KOA, Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: April, 2014 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

Clean park and pleasant, helpful staff nearly overcome the high price paid for a back-in 30-amp site. Bathrooms were very clean. Park is adding up to a dozen sites, but it does not look like it would impact existing sites. The sites with gravel have no shade to speak of, but that's what an awning's for, right? Check-out time is 11:30 a.m., which is unfortunately early, but the park staff no longer sits, waits, and demands your exit at check-out time. We would camp here again. We camped at Elizabethtown / Hershey KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Philadelphia / West Chester KOA, Coatesville, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $70.00
Overall Rating:

I can't recommend this campground. We were treated rudely by a member of the staff and received no apology from the park's owner. Called ahead two weeks before arrival and a staff member said we could stay up to three hours after the traditional noon checkout on a Monday. We agreed to pay the extra $3/hour fee for the privilege of staying late. On that Monday morning, to confirm that we would need to stay after noon, a different staff member rejected the promise made by her colleague. She demanded we leave by noon. Unfortunately, we were committed to visit a local college and could not return until 2 p.m. The staffer repeated her demand that we leave be noon, suggesting that the site would be immediately occupied at 2 p.m. Note this was a Monday - 75% of the campground was empty. We returned at 1:30, packed the trailer fast in 95 degree heat, and were able to leave before 2 p.m. We received no thanks or acknowledgement of our efforts by said staff member. Three days after I called the owner to complain, he acknowledged that our site remained vacant after we left and the rush was unnecessary. Despite this, the owner never apologized and never acknowledged the inconvenience and stress his staffer put us in. You can expect the same treatment for lesser issues. We won't be back. Ever. We camped at Philadelphia / West Chester KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Cherry Hill Park, College Park, Maryland

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $63.00
Overall Rating:

A good, large campground with easy access to Baltimore and Washington, D.C. A Good Sam park, which helps with the higher site rental fee. Staff is knowledgable, camp store is well-stocked with reasonably priced RV supplies. Sites a bit tightly packed, but staff offered that, if we didn't like the site they picked for us, we could pick another, open site, and call them to say we moved. Very nice. We went from a site that had two big rigs on both sides to one with only one "neighbor." No difference in price. If I need to camp again in the DC area, I'd stay at Cherry Hill. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Travel Trailer.
