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 KOA (formerly Timberlane Campground) 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.

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 KOA (formerly Timberlane Campground) in a Motorhome.

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 KOA (formerly Timberlane Campground) in a Motorhome.

This was a nice park. It's just recently converted to a KOA and there's work being done. We had a really nice shaded pull-thru site right at the front of the park. It was easy to access, level and the utilities worked well. They have a wonderful fenced grassy dog park that our dogs loved and was ver convenient. Convenient location to Philly also, maybe a 25 minute drive with traffic. It's in a quiet location so there's not any road noise to speak of. We camped at Philadelphia South KOA (formerly Timberlane Campground) in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

We booked a pull through for an overnight for our 43ft. MH and tow vehicle. There is no way we could have gotten into our site without unhooking our tow vehicle and then because if the trees that block your turn into the site, I ended up backing into our site. There are a LOT of full time residents here and lots of junk outside. First impression when you pull in is junky and dirty. We stayed in the back section, which seemed a little bit better. There is a nice pond and some grassy areas for walking the dogs and the dog park is big enough for the dogs to run and chase a ball or frisbee (if you know how to throw is to keep it in the fence) but it's a nice grassy dog park and our dogs enjoyed it. So, for the dog walking it rates high, but just be aware of the other issues. It just turned into a KOA, so maybe they are making some changes for the better now.....although lately, I'm not sure what is up with the KOAs that we have stayed at. They have all been pretty rough, so much so, we are now trying to avoid them if we can. Which is sad, you used to be able to count on the for some standards, but not so much anymore. We camped at Philadelphia South KOA (formerly Timberlane Campground) in a Motorhome.

Adequate facilities, rude staff. not expected from KOA; definitely expected from previous employees. Many, many full-time seasonal residents. funny as NJ says no full timers in rv parks. When you see trailers with extra large propane tanks and skirting, one wonders how cold the summers really are. yes, it is convenient to Philly. we've tried this place twice (2016 non-KOA; 2017 KOA). don't like rude staff.

We have used this campground on numerous occasions, traveling up and down the east coast. Our stay was the first under koa, and generally speaking, we're not fans of corporate owners, preferring "mom and pop" campgrounds. The price for a site has soared, so much so, we will find other options. There are some cosmetic changes, all well and good, but certainly doesn't justify high rate. Our brief encounter with the manager was unpleasant, she is very rude, odd for a position of dealing with customers. The other staff was polite and helpful, thank goodness We camped at Philadelphia South KOA (formerly Timberlane Campground) in a Motorhome.

Typical campground with the usual amenities that had just been switched over to KOA, so it may be on the verge of having improvements. That being said, it was not as neat as it could have been (i.e. - we had debris in our firepit, an old door matt embedded into the dirt, and they did not pick up downed branches after a storm). It also has many long-term residents, although their sites were clean. Their Internet was fair, but you needed to pay for it. Sites are a bit tight as I believe it is an older campground (we could not extend out awning due to a tree) Our cable was also not functioning, so I call it in, 4 hours later, I asked about it, but they sent a young staff member to look at it as the "official" cable technician had left. He was of no help. I ended up connecting to my neighbor's cable since they used satellite anyway. The campground was pricey, but I figured that was due to its proximity to Philadelphia. We camped at Philadelphia South KOA (formerly Timberlane Campground) in a Motorhome.

This is a really nice park. The staff and other campers were very friendly. This is a big place and not your typical parking lot although there are spots that are parrallel but with a little more than normal space. There is plenty to do for kids. There are sensonal campers, old and new campers. Most are 5th wheels. It looks like they are expanding the park. If you take exit 16b on 195 get ready for a 2.5 mile ride on a rough small road. Take exit 16a alot nicer shorter ride to the camp site. My site had two dump ports, I used the wrong one, lucky I tried grey water first.

Stayed four days while visiting Philly. Close to Philly, so you pay the price as I considered it to be high. If you are headed north on NJTP, take exit 18. My GPS had me get off at exit 17. Check in was easy and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Will stay again. We camped at Philadelphia South KOA (formerly Timberlane Campground) in a Motorhome.

Recently became KOA, so they have an upgraded store and were almost finished remodeling the bathrooms. New tile floors, new shower fixtures, very clean. OK pricing for the location. Easy access to Philadelphia. Sites are very close together and open. Parking lot style, but with some grass and a few trees. Easy access to Philadelphia using PATCO (train) from New Jersey. Be sure to call PATCO first - they will tell you which station is best, and notify the local police so that you don't get ticketed or towed. We were told to park at Lindenhurst, and there was plenty of room at the far end, and no objection to taking up four parking stalls. Entry to the lot was a little narrow, but doable We camped at Philadelphia South KOA (formerly Timberlane Campground) in a Motorhome.

This campground is converting to KOA. Prices reflect that. It is very easy to access and convenient to Philadelphia. Sites in the front section are back in and close together. Sites in rhe back section are pull through. We travel in a motorhome towing a car. The pull through sites have the services all the way at the back of the site. You will not be able to leave a car attached unless you have and use long extensions. The pull through sites have picnic tables on concrete slabs. They are narrow to pull in and most concrete slabs have been broken up by folks driving across them to enter their site. Verizon connectivity was good. Cable was great, extensive set of stations including sports networks. We camped at Philadelphia South KOA (formerly Timberlane Campground) in a Motorhome.
