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

Very pleasantly surprised. Not far north of Philly. Convenient for us to visit relatives. Excellent interior roads, good power. Nice area, good shopping and restaurants nearby. Cash/check only. Had to mail a check to hold a site. Will stay again when visiting the area. - MissingLinc

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

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

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

This park is difficult to get to. Do not approach from the north if over 11'6" as there is a covered bridge of 12'1" just before the park entrance.
From the south (Hwy 563 and Covered Bridge Road), the road has some low hanging limbs but we made it at 12'7" by going in the opposite traffic lane occasionally.
Owner is extremely friendly and helpful.
Park has many permanent residents, but the RV section is separated from them.
Might not stay again due to difficulty getting in and out. - durham4926

The campgrounds is an older established park that has many seasonal campers. The seasonal sites have some units with a lot of junk outsides and many RVs have seen better days. The shorter stay sites are in a lower area near the creek. These sites are a mix of pea gravel, dirt, and grass. These sites are narrow with hookups behind. Most units needed sewer hose extensions to reach the outlet. The pool area is very nice and there is a nice playground for younger children. I thought the campground is not a good value since it is pretty worn and basic. - linnemj

Rate depends on length of stay. Seasonal sites are separated from the transient sites. Room for my 36' 5th wheel and tow vehicle. Only campground in the area with full hook-ups. Staff is very nice and will work hard to accommodate your needs. Historic mill and covered bridge on site. Tohicon Creek runs through the campground. Very quiet during the week. Fills up on the weekend but folks have always been nice and followed the campground rules. Lots of activities for the kids on weekends. Nice clean pool. Play area. Would definitely stay again. - Smokeyfl

Check in was friendly, pool was OK. Site was level, but electricity at pole was reverse-polarity (and fried my surge protector). When we complained, the maintenance guy said it was our issue, not theirs - they had never had a complaint of this magnitude before. They offered to move us to another spot but that proved to be open-neutral at the pole. We requested a refund of our money and departed quickly - were 'shooed' out by the maintenance crew. Not impressed. - Forrest Woods

Nice gravel sites, good WiFi, friendly people. Only downside is poor water pressure. - wpagejr

Little Red Barn is really nice. Upper Bucks County can be pretty busy so being out of the way is a good thing with this location. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The sites are roomy and not challenging to get into. There is plenty of open area for family fun and the store and pool are really great. There are a couple of local restaurants that have great food and great service. - ArEfBee

This is only 20 minutes from our home and it has taken us 2 years to get here! I wish we had come sooner. We biked the tow path to Stockton and crossed the bridge to Dilly's Corner. What an amazing weekend skipping rocks on the Delaware and hiking & biking the beautiful area. We cannot wait to come back. We choose site 15 as other reviewers said it was spacious. We agree. It was near the bath/shower house and was close to the path to the river. We will come again. Most everyone was friendly, no rif-raf. Great family camping! Finally a place in Jersey we would venture back too. - Rkidsluvcamping

This is one of our favorite campgrounds. It sit on the Delaware river. It might be a little tight with a big trailer 40'. We had a 21' fifth wheel toy hauler and had no problems. We had site 15 which is a huge site and we parked 2 RV's on it. Site 44 is also another nice site. - Jodee

This place was excellent! Level sites, mostly quiet. Sandwiched between the DNR canal and the Delaware River. The bathrooms were very clean and the showers had loads of pressure and space. Plenty of cheap firewood for sale around the park. Frenchtown is nearby with some great shops and places to eat. We will be going back in September for another kayaking trip. - kleoette

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

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
