This is an old truck depot with an attached parking lot. RVs back up to the old loading bays. It sounds unappealing, but it's actually pretty nice. The sites are flat, paved, and easy to back in. Power and water are convieniently located. No trees so satellite works very well. No sewer but dump station nearby. Your neighbor might be 3 feet slide out to slide out if the place is busy. The area is fenced with a security gate and 24x7 shuttle drivers. The parking lot is an overflow lot for the U of P Hospital. Around 6:30am cars start showing up and you will hear some doors slamming and horn honking when the cars lock. A train yard is close by and you will hear trains too. But, a free shuttle to the hospital and a $2.25 bus (#42) gets you to all the downtown sites. Being in Philly as opposed to a long drive outside the city is great! Staff are super friendly and helpful. Price is a little high but when the location is considered it's fair. Keep in mind tow vehicle is an extra charge. - Bryanmsi

If I were touring downtown PHL, I would stay here again!
Good service, very unique. Shuttle to U of P Hosp complex. Take the 42 bus to Historic area, $2.25 per ride.
Only negatives were traffic noises from nearby train and highway system. This is a former truck transfer warehouse, thus the location. Felt very secure with fencing and shuttle drivers on duty 24/7.
Good job! - Sir_Charles395

Basically this is a parking lot. The location is good (particularly good if you are wanting to be near the hospital as they provide a free shuttle). It is noisy with trains nearby and a highway also. No place but tarmac to walk a dog so not pet friendly. It is also quite expensive. On the good side, the people we dealt with were very friendly and helpful and it was easy to get downtown using the shuttle and a bus. - rolltide19

Smaller campground. Lots of year rounds sites. Access to location was good.
Easy access to Phily by train. Lots are mostly shady. Sites are dirt and feature a picnic table and patio. Power and sewer connections all worked fine. - G and L

Our 2nd time staying there. Lots of 'permanent' residents but for those of us coming in for a short term stay, the sites were easy to access and level. The CG is GREAT when traveling either north or south on I-295 through the Philly area. Reservations were easy to make. No real ambiance but that was OK based on we were only there for 3 nights and just slept in the camper. - FordTruck

We stayed in an overflow site because the park was full. Overflow site was very good level gravel site with water and 50 amp. Satellite worked good and wifi was OK. Although it was not real convenient to the highway it was not that far away. We would stay here again. - RayN

This campground looks great. There are lots of trees, but also sunny sites. We watched cows nursing their babies in the pasture, and you can buy farm-fresh eggs at the campground store. So why the low rating?
(1) The electricity fluctuated. It spikes up and down. First you'll have 120 volts. A few hours later it'll drop to less than 110. (2) The water pressure also fluctuates. You'll have good pressure, then in the middle of your shower it slows down. (3) Ants, lots of them, invading our RV. This problem probably could have been alleviated somewhat if they cut the grass more often. It was over my ankles. (4) The trash cans were overflowing. Apparently, it is picked up on Fridays. Which means that the trash generated by the many weekenders sits here for a full week. - mrpeepers

This campground was clean and quiet, and the campsites were fairly level. My only complaint was that, contrary to what I was told, you could not get a view of satellite from the 50 amp sites. I then moved to a 30 amp site and was given a refund for the price difference with no problem. I then had to deal with acorns dropping on my motorhome and car. I could have move again but decided to stay in that site. I would stay hear again but I would chose a 30 amp site with no overhead trees. - TomG100

We read a number of reviews and decided we'd chance this CG. We are very happy we did! This is a very nice quiet CG. We took a walk around Sunday morning and all we heard was the wind in the trees, a couple bull frogs by the ponds and the chirping of birds. No traffic, no trains!
The roads inside are gravel. The sites are mostly all grass, some are gravel, most all are pretty level and good sized. The swimming lake is not the place it may once have been, but the new pool has made that a moot point. The pool is a relatively new addition, just a couple years old. Electric was good, water pressure was good, there is no cable. In truth we did not miss cable, we had a handful of air channels but didn't bother with TV. WiFi is spotty as was Sprint phone. There are a couple sites that will allow two units to face each other, nice if you are traveling with another family or a friend. I will definitely return here. - blues traveler

This campground has a nice wooded section (the 400's) We were there midweek in July,not crowded. There is a nice little pond,no pool. However they do not stay in office/store past 3pm. For no good reason they kept the Game room locked up except for weekend. Worst part was the small bathroom with single shower stall,smaller than a phone booth. The faucet is set, NO control of temperature! - Bill Fin

The park is wooded which is nice but the roads are poorly maintained. We camped in site 428 near a shower. Unfortunately, the only a single shower for men an women was open, it was not clean, the hot water went from cold to hot to cold. This shower served about 45 sites. Other showers and baths were locked. When we complained the next morning, they were unreceptive and acted as if we should be grateful we were able to get a shower. Clearly they did not have customer service in mind. Additionally, the bathrooms had no towels, dryers, or soap dispensers. Many of the sites are permanent and rundown. Recommend skipping this campground if you have other options. - EUSJNM

I did not expect much when we were able to make a holiday reservation 1 1/2 week prior. This campground could be a nice place if the owners made needed improvements. The entrance tells the story. They have too many old seasonals with decks and outbuildings in disrepair. We stayed In the 400's section which was nice (no seasonals). The water supply was little more than a trickle. The site was wooded and large. The bathroom which was a newer bathroom was very dirty There was no bench or a place to hang clothes. Several toilets were not working. The camp did not have pump out service. We chose this place because it was close, and it was the first time for a first time RV owner trying to camp on a holiday. I only wish the owners could see this place with the eyes of a camper. This place could be nice, but a bulldozer and dumpsters are needed. - shakieg

Beautiful campground, well maintained. Most spaces are filled with full time campers. Very nice and quiet. Road into campground is very narrow and curvy. Difficult turn in into campground. Owner is pleasant and easy to work with. No outside lighting makes it hard to get around at night. Not far from transit, Amtrak. - Glendaj

Nice park. We arrived on Saturday night, looked like bathrooms and laundry room had not been cleaned for several active days. Pull-through site, overlooking stream. Had pool and playground, no store or other facilities that we saw. Thought it was a little expensive at $45; no AAA, AARP, military, Good Sam or other discounts available. - Casper2011

This was our second stay at this park in 2 years. How quickly it has gone downhill. The good: WiFi and clean bathrooms. The bad: well the list is too long. The owner/manager seems to think travelers are too much trouble as this park caters to the seasonals. When I went to office to complain about no cable, I was first blamed for having an old analog TV. (It works fine at all other cg's.) Then told Comcast had fixed everything weeks ago. (Hello, I'm a cable contractor, you don't have cable!) Apparently they have Verizon TV at the house and others will have to make do. Second, when your laundry equipment won't shut to run, the problem is yours, not mine. Was told to keep slamming the door and it should work. Third, when told of being stung by wasps at the dumpster, manager acknowledged they had an issue with them, but no concern about my welfare as I stand there (hand swollen). This should be a $20 park and go stop at best. From Florida to Maine: this was the park where I got the least for the most $$$. We have spent our last penny with these Yahoos. Get out of the business if you don't care about your travelers. We definitely won't be back. - phnz1

very nice KOA, but sites are tight together, ours was up on hill behind store, which was great for WIFI but it was just dirt..no grass or gravel on doorway side..so tracked in a lot of dirt and mud going in and out. our awning was 3 inches away from next sites awning. staff was very nice. stream at bottom of campground , but no fish were caught. the new patio sites are very nice....but way too expensive. road going in was tight, but we had 25' so no issues. - yorky

The park is in a very picturesque location far from any road noise. Access to the park is somewhat difficult, but is only 15 minutes from Philadelphia metro. Park could use some upgrading, particularly site pads and bathroom facilities. Too many weekenders with children and dogs. - Altoflyfisher

Campground is a KOA Holiday level site. Facilities are top-rate. Restrooms and facilities were clean and well-equipped. Used campground as a base to explore the Philadelphia area. Campground provided good maps and tips to the local area. Took commuter rail line from Bryn Mawr to downtown Phil. Could use closer station, but trains more frequent closer to Philadelphia. Pool and recreation building was newer. Getting to the campground was a challenge - narrow roads, out in the middle of nowhere. On the positive, no freeway noise - it is out in the country with lots of horse farms. - Al Z

Easy in and out for 32 foot motorhome. Utilities easy to access. No cable TV. A bit of road noise if you are parked too close to the road which runs all night. Would avail ourselves of this park again. - Forest Woods

A quiet mobile home park with some RV sites. No ambiance, but a decent location for the Philadelphia metro area.
Asphalt access roads (main road good size, secondary roads relatively narrow, but "one-way" - not always paid attention to). Asphalt sites, mostly level and very narrow. Some sites can be somewhat challenging for a big rig. No picnic table or fire ring. Minimal to no shade.
Power, water, sewer ok, wifi rather sluggish, Verizon good signal and speed, Tmobile good signal and speed. Satellite access ok.
No recycle on site. Ok bike riding around the campground, no adjacent bike trails.
We'd stay here again when in the area. - SeaLandSkyPhoto

This is a mobile home park, with sites set up on pavement for transients. No shade. Parallel parking. Power was good, water fine. Wifi was pretty good. Really nice large grassy areas for dog walking. Nicely located to explore Philly about an hour or more away. Valley Forge was a nice trip also. - Motorhome girl
