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

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

The rate I noted is based on monthly. This is my second summer at Oak Grove; I call it "my little hamlet". It is a mobile home community with a large area for RVs in the front. Most of the RV spots are full timers or seasonal but if you are lucky you might just get a spot for the season or however long you choose to stay. It is nestled in an old oak grove--thus the name-- with pasture land on two sides of it. The park itself is well maintained--extremely well maintained. Several maintenance crew members are working five days a week supervised by the park owner. It is close to shopping and more shopping and dining and the post office or anything else you might want. Super clean restrooms and showers and the same for the laundry room with plenty of washers and dryers and bargain prices. There is a sparking clean swimming pool. My only complaint and it of course does not reflect on the park or its management, are the bugs--I hate bugs. But what can you expect in a humid grove of trees? They happen to be in abundance in my spot--other residents tell me they have no problems. The cool of the evening is the best time to sit outside but it is mosquito time so I do not spend much time doing that. But it does have great streets for bicycle riding so bring your bike. And of course, with the bugs come birds--song birds in abundance in early summer. If one is parked by the road the street traffic could be a problem but my spot is three rows in and it is generally not an issue. Site is reasonably level but I had to level a little on one side--utilities easy to access and cable is available. You will need cable for internet as they no longer offer wifi. Of course Verizon wifi works well here. People come back here season after season. It is a lovely, lovely park. Make your reservation early. - nanzhere

This is the second time we stayed here. The sites are back in but easy to negotiate. We used our antenna to get all the major TV channels. They do not have cable service. WiFi is available near the office and worked well. The drive to many of the local attractions is about 40 to 50 minutes. Some nice local mom & pop restaurants and pizza shops. Try Vinny's just down the road 5 minutes. - RVBill1063

We were so very disapointed. We wanted to tour Valley Forge and found this campground to be too far from the park. The cable did not work, the office was not open, the park is not dog friendly at all. The rate of $38.00 (cash only) was unacceptable. It is a $22.00 park at best. We stayed only one night and left as early as we could get the car hooked up. - bugs53

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
