Close to the highway and close to Philadelphia. My only concern was that the sites are very close and our awning almost hits the camper next to us. Additionally each site has a two plus foot metal pike at the entrance of each site. This made it very hard to position our camper and slides. This is like almost all NJ campsites that were built years ago. I'm just hoping we can pull out easily...as these sites are very close. There are a couple premium sites close to their pond though. We camped at Philadelphia South / Clarksboro KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground was recently acquired by the KOA system. It was previously known as Timberlane Campground. For that reason it is laid out differently from typical KOAs: The sites are somewhat smaller. They had to reassign me a different site, when the one I originally had was way too small; the site I finally got into was oversized and comfortable. The lanes have a lot more bends, and I never got to the point where I could find my way back to the park without my GPS. That said, it's a lovely, well-wooded park, with a large pond with a fountain and an island with a picnic table. The staff was quite helpful and friendly. There seems to be ample support for onsite family activities, and that's good, for its suburban setting means there is not much to do in the surrounding community. And they were actively building new cabins and play areas. Of course, it's an easy day trip into Philadelphia, for a $5 one-way toll across the bridge, and that was my primary reason for choosing the park. We camped at Philadelphia South / Clarksboro KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

After reading many positive reviews about this campground we decided to make it our season opener. We were very disappointed. Our site was extremely narrow. Our picnic table was literally right next to the trailer next to us and about 10ft from their sewer drain. Also, much of the area was plain dirt and under construction. The staff was very friendly but the camp store was almost non existent. I hate to be negative, but we were a little shocked at how narrow the site was. We will not be returning. We camped at Philadelphia South / Clarksboro KOA in a Travel Trailer.

There aren't too many options to visit Philadelphia. This seemed like the best option. The new owners are investing in this older campground and have already installed about 10 new gravel sites and we observed another 10 or so under construction. Would recommend you request one of these sites. While there is no shade, they are plenty wide, you'll get satellite reception and there's even extra area to park your tow car adjacent to your RV. The older sites are very tight and tree covered. We stayed one night in site 4 and then moved to 102 which we loved. By next Spring I would imagine the new sites and the typical KOA amenities will all be in place and we'd stay here again. Cable was adequate (although not yet installed in the new sites), Wifi was good and AT&T service was excellent. We camped at Philadelphia South / Clarksboro KOA in a Motorhome.

There are limited options for diesel fuel & eating at this exit. Everyone has an opinion on Philly Cheesesteak. We tried several and enjoyed Tony Luca's the best. Don't try a cheesesteak without the Cheez Wiz. Makes a big difference!

We used this park for a one night stopover so we did not see much. The site we had was at the front of the park and was very tight. The hookups were all okay and in the right place. Site was level and gravel. The worst were the roads getting in and out, very tight turns and lots of parked trucks and cars. Might stay again after the improvements are completed just to see if they get better. We camped at Philadelphia South / Clarksboro KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed for one week. Daily rate was $58 minus 10% with KOA rewards. Check-in was easy. However, the office person put us in a site we couldn't get into due to trees and turning radius. She should have known better. We called the office from the proposed site. The office person called the manager who ultimately moved us to one of the newly created sites. There was significant construction underway - enough that I feel they should have disclosed it ahead of time and offered discounts to their customers until the work is complete. We had full scale dump trucks, tractors and backhoes either passing by our rig or working nearby along with accompanying noise, clanging and beeping (except on Sunday). Hook-ups worked well. No wifi available at site. We obtained satisfactory Verizon cell and wifi signals. Although there are lots of trees, miraculously we were able to receive DirecTV sat signal in our site. The pool was covered but it looked like a nice area. The small lake is pretty. Campground is easy on/off the 265 yet is very quiet. It was quite full on the weekend so suggest advance reservations. If we returned to the area, we would evaluate all options first but would be willing to stay again. We camped at Philadelphia South / Clarksboro KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Use the train to get into Philly. $6 per person round trip. Parking at the train station is free if arrive after 10am and all day Sat/Sun. It's easy and safe. The Eastern State Penitentiary is quite interesting. Longwood Gardens is spectacular. Give yourself the entire day there and don't miss the water fountain show. National Constitution Center is a bit overrated.

This RV park recently became a KOA Campground (formerly Timberlane Campground) and is undergoing some site renovations. As such, fewer sites were available for short-term stays. The rear portion of the park seems to be occupied by long-term residents. The roads and closely-spaced sites within the park are gravel with a wooden picnic table and a very small fire ring. Although we asked for a satellite-friendly site, and there were several available the entire length of our week-long stay, we were told by the young lady who checked us in that "none of our sites are satellite-friendly," and were given a tree-shaded site near the front of the park...thus no satellite. We used their cable, which could just be considered passable. Amenities at the park include a small convenience store within the registration office; laundry and restroom/shower facilities are also in the same complex, a nice pool area with spa (closed for the season), a pond with a water feature, and an enclosed dog park. While staying at the park, we visited Philadelphia, Atlantic City, Valley Forge, Trenton, Titusville (Washington Crossing State Park), and Washington Crossing (Washington Crossing Historical Park). We camped at Philadelphia South / Clarksboro KOA in a Motorhome.

Stayed 3 nights to visit Philly. Easy on-off from xpressway. Check-in was efficient and staff very friendly. Interior roads paved. Our site, #56 PT FHU, was in partial shade, level and comfortable space between coaches. A lot of const., expanding, adding new sites, roads kept clean. Very easy to use Metro train to go into Philly. All utilities worked well. Nice dog park with bags upfront. A lot of space for walks and fishing pond. Grocery store, Shoppers, within 2 miles. We camped at Philadelphia South / Clarksboro KOA in a Motorhome.

At the time of our visit, park had just become a KOA and was undergoing a facelift. Sites were muddy and messy but its unfair to judge because of the extensive mods that were underway. However trees in around campsites had large broken branches that were one windstorm away from coming down and hurting someone or damaging property. We reported this to the front desk but we observed no action during our stay. Also we lost water for the better part of a day. One of the workers told us it was a planned outage for a tie-in. The front desk told us that workers hit a line. Hopefully they will get things under control after construction is complete. We will be back in NJ this summer but it will be a long while before we return to this campground. We camped at Philadelphia South / Clarksboro KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This was a two night stop for us to see a ballgame in Philadelphia. Park is very convenient to drive into the city or you can also get there by train. Our site was very close but it looks like the new owners are adding some very nice sites with lots of room and well planned. Some of the turns are tight. Wi-fi is available at your site for a cost or free in the office/game room. If they upgrade the old sites after they finish with the new, this will be an outstanding campground. They staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We camped at Philadelphia South / Clarksboro KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed in a 45' bus with a tow. Campground is near 295 but far enough away from the noise. Nice place and will only get better. They are investing in more spots and fixing what they have.

If you are a class A or bus, disconnect your tow before going in. It is tight getting around some trees. We camped at Philadelphia South / Clarksboro KOA in a Motorhome.

This is our 2nd stop at this park. It is convenient to rt 295. The park is clean and roads are good. Ther staff was friendly and helpful. I gave this park an average rating due to the cost. $54.00 is very expensive for an overnight stop. Wifi only works at the office. Water and electric worked OK.

As in past, we used this campground as an overnight stop over before heading north through New York to New England for which it is perfect. Was undergoing upgrades and adding new sites but roads are very tight and not the easiest to maneuver through. Likewise given the tight space of our site, we were not able to use our slide outs and awning. Staff is always friendly and helpful. We camped at Philadelphia South / Clarksboro KOA in a Motorhome.

Park is packed tight with units very close to one another. Level sites but muddy with any rain. Good cable ...awful internet. Pool was clean as were poolside furniture pieces. Very convenient for overnight heading north & south...would stay here again considering the other transient choices but felt like they were less than a good value.

Tips for other Campers:

Truck plaza before getting back on 295 is about 1 mile away and has fuel, DunkinDonuts and McDonalds. Near that is Chinese Restaurant Dragon Nest which is a throwback to older time when you actually ate IN the restaurant and had a pot of tea. (yeah you can take out too!) Great fresh food and lots of dishes you don't see on most standard menus. Give the Jumbo Chile Shrimp a try if you like hot & spicy. Great service.

This new KOA is a pleasant place to stay to enjoy a woodsy environment or to tour the Philly area. Distance from the freeway is close enough to make access easy yet far enough to silence the noise. Wifi is unreliable: either too slow or nonexistent. Staff is helpful. Satellite reception will be a challenge because of the trees. We enjoyed our stay here while visiting the historic Philadelphia.
