It's hard to rate this one. It's a parking lot in South Philly. Their primary business is as a park and ride for people going to the University of Pennsylvania Hospital, but there are about a dozen spaces with hookups crammed closely together on one side of the lot, and overflow parking for a bunch more. Shuttles run between the lot and the hospital 24/7. It's about a 5 minute ride to the hospital, then there are public transit connections to everywhere else (about 15-20 minutes to the tourist locations in the center of the city). Or it's a $10, 15 minute Lyft ride directly from the park to the center of town. The employees were all super friendly and helpful. Between the razor wire perimeter, bright lights, and the presence of bus drivers and other campers, it seemed safe enough. The lot has all of the basics, restrooms and showers that I never looked at (someone else said they were actually pretty good), dump station, dumpster. There's a small patch of grass by the entrance if your dog needs it. There's also a fair bit of trash around, and it's next to a train yard. Between the trains, buses, and a jerk who appears to be living in the last campsite next to the tracks with some loud motorized bike that he likes to ride around the parking lot in the evenings, it's not quiet. But it's very convenient for visiting Philly, and very cheap when compared to other big city RV parks. If you can pick your site, the ones in the front, farthest from the railroad tracks, are quietest. If I were visiting Philly again, yes, I would stay here again. But a lush state park it ain't. - AnnP

This park is Urban Camping at it's best. It is super close to all of fun and historical things to do in Philadelphia. Campus Park & Ride is essentially a commuter parking lot next to a warehouse that has electric and water connections at each site. It is a no frills place to safely connect your RV, camp and enjoy one of the best cities on the East Coast. Their staff is SUPER friendly and helpful with directions and recommendations. - ETCTA

Great option if you want to explore Philadelphia. Helpful, friendly staff. Free shuttle to bus stop. We felt safe and comfortable and will stay again! - mac2school

Nice and quite CG. Typical KOA amenities. Only 20min to subway. Only complaint is that our site didn't drain. After a rain there was a 6 inch puddle outside where our steps were. Would stay again. - newbies2016

I did not find our site to be small like other reviews. Our pull through site was plenty long enough with plenty of room on both sides and it was easy to get level. Park roads were good and we were escorted to our site. Power was good as was the water. My only issue with this park was the price. $63 for a site with no wifi, unless I walked to the office, is a bit pricey for us. This is our 3 time at this park and it will be our last due to pricing. I'll find another park or another route in the future. - RayN

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. - Iforget

Rate of $40.00 per night for full hookups, no discounts offered. Camping/parking here is akin to parking in a Walmart parking lot with hookups. Office hours are limited. Staff is friendly and willing to accommodate. As previously posted, all roads and sites are paved and level. Parking is parallel to the road and can offer a challenge to get into depending on the site and other units. Ambiance does not lend itself to outdoor activities such as sitting outside under the awning or BBQ'ing, although some did, zero privacy. All utilities worked as intended except the water was extremely murky, the color of weak ice tea. Maintenance had to come and purge the line. Every morning I had to run the water several minutes to get clear water. Although a convenient location, I would seriously explore other options before returning here. - ECM1

As the names says, a mobile home park with some sites for RVs. Sites are arranged so you must parallel park the RV. Our site was next to Koffel Road and had constant loud traffic noise. Had to sleep with ear plugs. The site was paved and level. They have a small laundry with 5 washing machines that take quarters only, $ 1.25 per load and 2 dryers. No change machine, you must go to the office for change. Really strange and old electric connection . No cable or other amenities, such as table, pool, playground, dog park, etc. The park is set up for permanent residents not travelers. Wi-Fi is advertised, but we could not get connected. We could not find any other good choice for visiting the city, but we would try somewhere else next time. - starwind

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

This is not a campground but has full hookup sites for people coming for service, trades and purchases. We traded our Country Coach for a Tiffin Allegro Bus. We stayed in their campground while our coach was getting additional items put on. So if you need good honest service for your coach, this is a good place. - Russell and Stephen

The woodsy environment in this park makes it a pleasant place to stay. Staff very friendly and helpful. A very nice place for an extended stay or overnight. - Roger H.

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
