Dump. This is an old run down campground. About half of the sites are permenents. Our site, and many others, was not level. The lady in the front office was rude. She looked like she just rolled out of bed.

The only redeeming value here is that it is the only campground close to Philly. We would not stay here again. We camped at Timberlane Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed 4 nights while visiting Philadelphia and Atlantic City. Easy in-out just off I-295. Front desk clerk efficient but not very friendly or welcoming. Offered no suggestions and didn't seem interested in giving us tips for getting around. Had to know what to ask. The site we had was nice enough, although nothing special. There were two sections in the campground, some long-term residents. Didn't use any amenities. The reason to be here is its close proximity and easy access to Philadelphia over the Ben Franklin Bridge, and we enjoyed that. Each site had a concrete patio and fire ring, along with picnic table. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Timberlane Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for five nights to explore the Philadelphia area. We had a pull thru site with FHUs. The sites were very narrow. I was thankful that our neighbor was not home while we were hooking up as I felt we were invading his space. The sites were some gravel and lots of sand. The bathrooms and showers were clean, but the showers were very substandard. There was no hot and cold knob, but instead a push button on about a one minute time limit. Then you had to push the button again. The water temp was preset at a lukewarm temperature. This might be expected in a park when you pay $15-20/night, but not for $44/night with a GS discount. While it was easy access to I-295, we would not stay here again. We camped at Timberlane Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Philadelphia is a relatively easy commute (12 miles) away so this campground is a mix of summer residents and short timers (like us) who were visiting Philadelphia. As other reviewers wrote: this is a busy campground and is full most nights (spring thru fall) so call and make a reservation. The office (understandably) puts the tourists at the front of the campground and the summer residents are in wider, more heavily-treed sites at the back. We were in one of the front sites (#2) and it was far enough off the highway that traffic noise was not a problem. Front sites are level dirt and gravel, have a picnic table, concrete patio pad, good cable. There is a dog walk area, a small camp store, game room and a swimming pool, Brochure says there is free Wi-Fi near the office, otherwise you must purchase Wi-Fi from a provider. (We have a Verizon hot spot and it worked well.) We will stay here again when we are in the area. The laundry room has 3 washers and dryers. We thought the $2.75 to wash and $1.75 to dry expensive so we went into town - only to discover that there the price was $4.00 + to wash and about $2.00 to dry. We camped at Timberlane Campground in a Motorhome.

The well organized lady in the office will give you a map and excellent advice on how to (most comfortably) navigate the (very popular) colonial attractions of Philadelphia: drive to the Independence Mall Visitors Center, pay $20 to park in the underground parking center and take the Big Red Bus hop-on-hop off tour (about $30).

We stayed here mainly as a base to visit Philadelphia, and it was a pretty fast and easy drive into the city. Our only complaint is that some of the sites, and ours in particular, are extremely narrow. Our neighbor's open awning was literally a few inches from our window. Our pull-through was very long, but the sewer hookup was at the back corner of the site so we couldn't pull up very far into the site. There are a fair number of full-time/seasonal RVs there but their sites were tidy. The campground was dog-friendly, and we regularly walked the entire campground including through their large field and around the fishing pond. Since the campground was small we tried to walk our dog in a nearby housing development but they had a big "no dog walking" sign at the entrance. AT&T and Verizon worked well. The campground offers pay-to-use WiFi through a 3rd party company, or you can go to the campground office to use the office WiFi for free (we didn't try either). Given the proximity to Philly, we were OK with the narrowness of the sites, but if it wasn't the "closest campground to Philly", the site size likely would have cost an extra point. We camped at Timberlane Campground in a Motorhome.

We chose this park because of the proximity to Philadelphia. It was a very easy drive and we made it often as we didn't see much to do in the area of the park. We did enjoy touring the USS New Jersey which is near by, however.
The park is located close enough to I295 that we could get to anything that we wanted (Shopping, Entertainment, Restaurants). It was secluded enough, however, that we could walk our dogs down the road without worrying about a lot of traffic. However steer clear of the neighborhood up the road as they have big signs prohibiting dog walking.
Our site was very narrow. So narrow that we didn't feel that we could use the fire ring or picnic table. In fact our neighbors had to move their picnic table under our slide just to get into their space. I had to re-position our rig several times and still had to use blocks to get it level. Our space had a tree in the way of our awnings that would drop acorns on our roof day and night for the whole time we were there. We noticed it happening on a lot of the sites.

The staff wasn't rude but I wouldn't call them friendly either. They were almost always busy as this park seems to have quite a few people coming and going every day. However, when we needed to extend our stay they were very accommodating.
I must say that if we were traveling back this way we would think twice about staying here again but from reviews of other parks in the area we would most likely end up here anyway.
At $42 per night, it just seemed a little expensive for the amenities. We camped at Timberlane Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If arriving in the fall ask for a site without trees as the dropping acorns are very annoying. Definitely tour the Battleship New Jersey, very well worth the admission price!

Big rig friendly with level sites. Easy access to I295. Philadelphia was a 20 minute drive and one hour drive to Atlantic City. Swimming pool was nice. Cable was good. Wi-Fi only available at office. Water pressure was good. Showers were small but plenty of hot water. Laundry facilities were good. No dog park but two large fields to walk dog. We camped at Timberlane Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed 5 nights to see the area. There isn't much to choose from in the area. They DO NOT respond to email inquiries so call. Once you've made reservations, they do communicate by email.

The park has easy access from Northbound Interstate 295 but is a little bit of an adventure from Southbound Interstate 295.

The interior roads were paved. The roads were very narrow with tight 90 degree turns that were encumbered with posts at the corners. The sites were gravel, narrow but generally level. The sites were very close to each other so there wasn't much privacy. The utility connections were about mid way down or towards the end of the sites which required some long runs. It seemed most of the sites had an outside table and fire pit.

There appeared to be A LOT of long term residents. They seemed to be spread out all over the park.

The trees in and around the park made satellite reception hit and miss depending on site assignment and your dish configuration. The park brochure showed 9 broadcast channels. There was an extensive list of cable channels.

WiFi reception was only available in the office. Paid WiFi reception was available around the park.

The designated pet area was an open field near the front entrance. There was a bag dispenser and can to collect waste. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park roads and in other open fields around the park. There were no bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste and only one dumpster for garbage which was located near the front of the park on the way out.

For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter.

Would only stay here again if traveling through or visiting the area for a short duration. We camped at Timberlane Campground in a Motorhome.

Over night stop returning to Florida. The pull through site assigned was level. Paved roads, but sites are gravel and dirt. There is an abundance of grass where people don't walk. All services worked correctly and were easy to reach. ATT and Verizon both data and voice were strong. Very quiet surroundings. Did not use bath facilities, so can't really comment on their cleanliness. We camped at Timberlane Campground in a Travel Trailer.

You'll pay for electric as well as the daily charge, or at least we did for a week stay. Roads are paved, sites are gravel and pretty level. Sites are not well spaced. Some are very tight, others are better. Fire rings nice idea but in tight sites the fire ring is about two feet from slides of neighboring rig. We didn't appreciate the flames and smoke so close to our rig. We couldn't get satellite and it's really hit or miss depending on what site you're in. Our fire ring was full of corn cobs and cigarette butts and we needed to ask office to clean it out. Restrooms were clean but soap dispensers didn't work in men's room. Nice pond and fountain. Staff was friendly. Quiet for the most part, tucked way off residential road and over a mile from interstate. WiFi was really bad. Cable was good. We camped at Timberlane Campground in a Motorhome.

The rate is based on a monthly stay. This is our second time staying at this campground, and I'm sure we'll be back again. Timberlane is a nice, quiet, relaxing campground. It's right off I-295 so it's easy to get to, and it's the closest campground to Philadelphia if you want to go sightseeing. It's also near to grocery stores, a mall, and Camping World. The gravel sites are large and level. When we first checked out the laundry, I thought they were expensive. Then I checked out laundromats in the area, and they're even more expensive. So I stuck with the campground laundry. It was very clean and all of the machines worked fine. We camped at Timberlane Campground in a Motorhome.

Closest campground to Philly - that is why we chose it. Level rock sites, mostly grassy, table, fire pit, decent WiFi and cable were provided. We had a lake view site which was nice. Not much for walking but there is a town home development about 1/4 mile away that you can walk in. This campground was expensive and you'll also pay for your electricity if you have a weekly spot as we did. But it has location, location, location. We would stay again.

Tips for other Campers:

You can drive your own car and pay $20 to be in the heart of Philadelphia or you can take the train for $6.00 (round trip) and leave the stress at home. It might take a bit longer but the cost and stress level are much lower. Please put the Secret Garden on your list of places to visit and eat at Reading Terminal Station (we recommend Bielers for the donuts - wow)

Near Philadelphia. Heavily wooded and lakes in the campsite. Comfortable, spacious plots, but tactless and some public phone service as we didnt need and were not able to say: use ours ..
Large plots. We camped at Timberlane Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is clean, well kept and attractive. The people we dealt with were helpful and accommodating, but not overly friendly in the process. The things we did not like were that the sites were a bit too close together, the washing machines were very expensive, and the Wi-Fi (although free) really wasn't good most of the time. We might consider staying here again if in the area. It did have close proximity to Philadelphia. We camped at Timberlane Campground in a Motorhome.

Paved main and site roads. All sites grass, some with concrete patios, not so wide, and not so long but OK and level. Have both back-in and pull-through sites and all full hookups. There are sites with trees for shade and open sites for good sat signal. OK TV signals, free cable, free Wi-Fi at sites. Park has small pond, a pool, small rec room, large playground and mini golf. Good Verizon cell & 4G signals. The staff was friendly and helpful. 15 miles from Philadelphia. Would stay there again. Rate for Good Sam members on a holiday. We camped at Timberlane Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
