This is a difficult campground to review. There are things I really like about it, but their website is also a little misleading and their bathhouse is just terrible.
Start with the good, we were camped in the lower portion of the campground on a water/electric site. The sites are in a great location, well spaced, level, with large trees and a picturesque fishing pond. Water and electric were both in good working order. There is some light and road noise from nearby Rt 100, but it died down in the evening. The downside of the location, and what the map and website don't explain, is that these sites are on a different property, even in a different municipality, and more then ½mile from the bath house and the rest of the campground. There was a port-a-pot there, but you had to drive to take a shower.
The bath house was the other downer. It had nice showers that seemed to be recently renovated, but one of the toilets was clogged all weekend and the whole place smelled due to poor ventilation. There were no mirrors above the sinks, and it finally it was a struggle to work the lock to the ladies room, we could not open it at all the first night we were there.
We never ran into the crazy owner and in fact we only saw one staff member who checked us in when we arrived. She was wonderful, leading us to a site of our choosing and bringing down a large load of firewood which she helped unload.
In all I would return, but only if they resolved the bath house situation. - Cyclonic

Paved roads, gravel sites. It is on a hill and the sites are terraced. The first spot we were put into was a bit unlevel and we had a hard time trying to get level. We asked to be moved and the camp manager was very pleasant and found a better spot for us. We were here 5 nights, very quiet park for the most part. The rules are strict, but for the betterment of the park and provided a quiet pleasant stay. One neighbor had a noisy dog and when we called the park manager, she told us that a few other campers had also called her and she was on her way to check things out. Problem resolved. We were on the top of the hill and had a beautiful view of the area around us. No pool, playground or other amenities. The laundry facilities that are clean. There is a car race track somewhere in the area, so Saturday evening was a bit noisy. Nothing they can do about that. We will stay here again when in the area. - esta34950

We stayed here at the beginning of the season so there were few other occupied sites. We chose to stay in the lower part of the park, off the hill. Had a site with water and electric. The sites on the hill were mostly filled with seasonal/year round occupants. They also had amenities likw sewer that we didn't need. It is an excellent park and I would stay here again if the opportunity arose. - DXRFLYER

The road leading to the campground is narrow, but we were able to drive our 32' motorcoach to the campground with little problem. The campground is aptly named. Sites are wide with a gravel base and lots of boulders and trees. Sewer is not available for non-seasonal stays, but there are dump stations available and there is also a honey dipper service available for a fee. The campground offers different activities on the weekends and made announcements over a loud speaker about them occasionally, including when the quiet hours started at 11:00pm. It was noisy with children playing in the area we camped in (site 15).
One feature this campground offers is a deli that is open on Fridays from 4:00-9:00pm that offers dinner (this weekend was meatloaf - ask when making a reservation). This could be helpful when arriving in the early evening for a possible meal solution.
The owners are very helpful even with repairs, which we found out when one of our sliders stopped functioning. We appreciated Bill taking a look at it for us and helping us get it back in. - JC06

This is the first time staying at this campground and we were pleasantly surprised. It is tucked away on some back wooded roads and the campground is spread out on two sides of the road. We stayed in a section away from the main campground where the pool and activities were going on, across the road, but we liked it. Very spacious, wooded pull through site. It has a lake for fishing and lots of activities for kids and grown-ups were posted. We walked around to see what the other sites looked like: 90% are permanents, but they have 2 small sections dedicated pretty much to weekend campers. And both sections were shady and set up nicely. We went to Rice's Flea Market on Saturday, which is about a half hour away. The only reason I'm giving a 9: the two wooded sections for weekend campers, do not have any bathhouses. You would need to walk a pretty far distance to use the bathhouses. We were only here for 3 days, so it was ok that they don't have sewer hook-ups at any sites at this campground and we could dump on our way out. We will definitely be coming back here at least one or two more times this season. We just loved that it was tucked away from it all. - pokey

We stayed here about mid-Sept, and well, didn't get to try the pool (which was closed) but looked nice. The staff were helpful, but the roads and sites were small and rough. It was hard to maneuver our Fifth Wheel into the campground and our lot which is narrow. It's a pretty campground but a rocky mountain. We probably would visit again if in the area. - camp1984

Rustic style camping. Nice staff.
Would stay here again.
Quiet. Good for families as well. - Sir_Charles395

We enjoyed our stay here. Coming on a hot week, we told the owner we'd like shade, but wouldn't mind satellite too. She helped us pick a spot that was mostly shaded, but got us satellite. We were so happy. Being close to the office got us good internet too. We drove over grass to pull in, very easy, site was fairly level. There are tons of trails around to walk the dog. I went in the pool since it was so hot and it was very clean. There was a little playground for little ones. There was a small laundry room we used that didn't cost much, can't remember the price. My husband had to go to the Philadelphia airport, about an hour away. I was alone and felt perfectly safe and comfortable there. - dorcol

If you want no frills at a low cost about an hour north of Philadelphia, Homestead Campground is paradise. The place looks to be owned and maintained by a mother-daughter combo - their late father appeared to be the "glue" and handyman who kept everything running. No longer. The grounds are beginning to wear down.
When I called to reserve a site, the lady said water/electric sites would be available. Didn't give me a site number, however. We arrived at 10 p.m. and the grounds were quiet. No message at the camp office. No map. Called the phone number on the door and left a message. We picked a site at random. The following day, we tracked down the daughter and paid for the site. While the folks are friendly, they appear to be overwhelmed or disinterested in operating anything more than an overnight rest area.
No camp store. No daily activities. The office is rarely open. The electric went off around 1:30 a.m. on Saturday and didn't come back until 9:30 a.m. We don't know why. A small unguarded pool is at the lower corner of the grounds. Water looked OK, but I wouldn't swim in it.
The permanent rigs are well maintained. A limited number of sewer sites are available. In the woods to the rear of the campground are dozens of water/electric sites - great for pop-ups or tents.
Stay here if you need to. There are better choices in Bucks County. - Lancaster Camper

We only had the opportunity to stay at Quakerwoods one night, however we thoroughly enjoyed it! We arrived later in the afternoon, so we didn't have the opportunity to try any of the amenities. The campground is wooded, clean and well kept. The staff was helpful and friendly. The only thing that was disappointing was that the sewer drain was higher that the gravel pad we were parked on making it more difficult to dump our tanks. - krmihalk

Found this site on Passport America website. Called to see if they could accommodate 42 ft., was told yes. Drove about 5 hours to get there and then was refused the P.A. discount because the lady said we were too long. She said she only gave PA dqiscount up to 39 or 40 ft. We only took one space and our tow vehicle was still behind the RV. Don't understand how she can advertise as PA and refuse the discount for PA. We were there on a Tuesday night. The park was almost 100% permanent units and was very unkept. Would NOT recommend this campground to any one. - Lenox

First of all, there is a covered bridge that you probably should not try to use. Unfortunately, no one at the camp knew how to direct us around the bridge. Very nice people and we got the last spot they had. Oak Street! No numbers on spots, no one knew where the running water hook up was, and the area was dirty looking. The best spots are in the center. The restaurant is not operating, camp store very limited, and whole place hilly. Long term rigs filthy. We didn't stay the night. - DrSheilaHereNow

Stayed in C loop. Large roomy site, shaded but still got satellite signal. Camp hosts were very friendly, nice quiet place. Road into the park is a little tight, but not that bad. Would definitely camp here again! - bgg

There are four loops that are available, only one loop is available for those with pets. It appeared some loops were better maintained (restrooms and landscaping, etc) than the other loops. We stayed in C and it looked a little sloppy as the grass was long and not mowed. There is not a separate area for tent campers and during our stay, over 60% of the spots were occupied by tents. The park itself is nice with two lakes, beach area, pool, frisbee golf, boat rentals, hiking trails, etc. - TheRestlessYoungs

This park has three loops, one of which is for hookups. We stayed in the for hookup site. It was pretty quiet, so, even when the loop was full. The staff was always helpful. We could not get Internet or cell phone service. - Nibot

This is my second weekend stay here and I will be back. I took advantage of the new "virtual full hook-up" and it worked well. I was able to use a site that did not have sewer, which expanded my possibilities. They do not have a lot of sites with sewer hook-ups, I imagine because the place is built on rock. They come around daily to take gray water and on Sunday to empty both gray and black tanks. This went off without a hitch.
The campground is in the woods. The sites were decent size and gravel. Hook-ups were well-placed. There is no WiFi, but I had no trouble using 3G, and in fact is was as quick as the WiFi in my house for my usual Internet surfing. The site and campground in general were quite clean. It is fairly quiet and relaxing.
The only con was the shower, which is very low flow and makes showering quite lengthy and unenjoyable. Attention campgrounds! It takes a certain amount of water to rinse. You can low flow it or you can low pressure it, you can have faucets that constantly need to be turned back on throughout the shower, but it's still going to take the same amount of water to rinse my hair!!!
I will be returning here. - Driver25

This CG has the friendliest owners and seasonal campers of any private CG we've ever been to. It's the only private CG we go to. It's a peaceful happy place that we hate to leave. Everyone you see says hi. It's sites are wooded on stone roads it has a small pond for fishing and a large pool staffed with a lifeguard. Ice cream at the store is awesome. There's a couple trails including one that is about 2 miles to St. Peter's where you can play old pinball machines in a retro pinball arcade. - iamcorky

Warwick Woods is certainly in the woods. The sites are scattered up and down a hill that is in the woods. We had to have a lead car take us to our site in order to find it. The desk clerk gave us hints about the tight turns and trees so we got through without any problems. Fortunately, the site was very level and all the hookups worked just fine.
The campground was very busy on the weekend but there was never any noise or loss of privacy. We were there for six nights so we could see the differences from mid-week to the weekend. - Pennimanman

Most sites are level or close to level and are on gravel. All sites include water, electric, and sewer. Cable is also included for many sites.
This park is located between Route 78, a busy highway, and old Route 22 which also has some traffic. Depending on your site (we were in B2), your noise level may be more significant than ours as we were closer to the park's entrance near old Route 22.
Our site had plenty of room our 32 foot motorhome and our car. If you want a fire ring, you may need to ask for one. The campground delivered ours early the next morning (we arrived after dark). - JC06

This is a very nice RV park, just off the hwy, so great for an overnight stay. HOWEVER, it is right next to the highway, so there is a lot of noise. - alm

This is a well-maintained campground with nice, roomy, gravel sites in a lovely area. It is very convenient to I 78, although our GPS told us to get off at the wrong exit and sent us the long way. (Take exit 40.) We had a pull-through site with full hook-ups. They have wifi and cable. The restrooms are clean and well-maintained. We will definitely stay here again. - Lyn T

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

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
