Clientele is made up by mostly seasonal campers - their sites are bit junky. Grounds are well kept, swimming pool looked clean and inviting. The camp host are friendly and very helpful. This is our second time and probably not our last - as we have friends close by. The Brandywine Creek is of a historical interest to some and beautiful woodlands surround the park. oWater pressure is on the low side but do-a-ble. We camped at Brandywine Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Many seasonal campers, but also room for travelers. Nice location along the Brandywine Creek. I saw ducks, geese, and blue herons during my stay. We camped at Brandywine Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The park has a beautiful country setting next to a creek. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The sites are pretty level. If you go absolutely follow the owners suggested route. You will still encounter many hills but not windy roads. Bathrooms had many dead bugs. We camped at Brandywine Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Don't miss out on BJS and Wegmans...both great shopping. Sams Club closed June 30, 2017. Downingtown and Exton are loaded with shopping and dining spots.

This campground has a nice location along the creek, with well spaced sites, good hookups and clean bathrooms. Convenient location to Marsh Creek SP for fishing, hiking and running. Property has fishing available in the creek and a separate pond. They have a pool, but was not open when we stayed. Good mix of seasonal campers and shorter term. All sites were well maintained.

Do not trust your GPS, take a look at the website for directions, before driving to the park. There is a very nice creek running along side of the campground. About three TV Stations are available "over the air", if you aim the antennae the correct angle. Sewer connection is a little different. The sewer pipe is horizontal at site 45 with a 90 elbow. The bathrooms are individual bathroom/showers. Good camping ambiance. The WiFi is free. There are two locations in the park. WiFi is good enough. The GPS issue might be that the internet has the town as Glenmoore but the receipt shows the town as Lyndell We camped at Brandywine Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

As you drive in, the office signage is on a tree, some what smaller than the 5 mph speed limit...we missed the office turn off, but the check- in man rode a bicycle and caught up with us. If you get lost, the lady answering the phone will give you good directions. Best way, from Highway 30 is Highway 322 called Manor Rd.

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. We camped at Brandywine Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Brandywine Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Brandywine Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Easiest way to describe this campground - two or three rows of mostly permanent trailers placed as close as possible to each other along deeply pockmarked gravel road. Rushing creek on one side, huge wide field on other side. (Are they planning to expand?) Wi-Fi worked, but cable didn't on arrival and I was told by neighbor that it goes in and out. It came back on later with a few channels only. We were placed in a site that had been vacated that day after what appeared to be a seasonal stay. Hadn't been cleared of debris from previous tenants. Spent one night only. We camped at Brandywine Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Boy, where to start, I had such high hopes after reading other reviews. First, we arrive and no one in office at all, after about 20 minutes, a guy mowing the lawn come up and then a maintenance guy who calls them and we find out from him what space we are in. They direct us to the site, only to find that it was the wrong way, had to turn around and that was a huge chore as there is no room. We finally find our space with the help from one of the full timers, they put is in the middle of some trees and the angle that I had to get turned around was nuts, I told them I had a 38 foot 5th wheel with a quad cab, so I am really long. I also told them that I wanted an open space as I have Direct TV satellite, well this spot was dead center of the largest trees with no view of the sky, so Satellite was out. There were other spots out in the open, but that was in an area where full timers are. Understand, this park is about 90% seasonal users, so very few spots for others. We were there a whole week, not once did I ever see the office staff, each time I went by the office, it was empty. We did get a call one time from them telling us that we drove to fast, when they say 5mph, they mean it.. I could walk faster, but it is posted, so I can not really complain about that. The spot we got was not anywhere near level and was muddy the whole time we were there, there is a pond, but it is scum covered, not very nice to look at. The creek is nice if that is what you want to sit by. The gravel road is full of potholes, maybe that is why they are so strict on the 5mph. Very expensive for what you get and we will not stay here again. Probably great for seasonal, and I think that is what they cater to. We camped at Brandywine Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We spent three nights here in a 35 footer and enjoyed it immensely. We were in site 57 which is the last RV site and has a bit more room than some of the others. It was a back-in site (pull-throughs were all taken when we registered), but we did not have any difficulty backing in. The staff was very helpful and very nice, and our 4 year old daughter loved the trampoline, pool, and playground, all of which were very well cared for. The road accessing this park is not the easiest to drive (curves and low branches), but by the third day, I was used to it. (We did not have a toad, so we had to use the MH to drive everywhere.) We would definitely stay here again, and hope to! We camped at Brandywine Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Getting to the park was tough! There are narrow roads and lots of low hanging trees. But, the owner was so helpful, helping us get settled. The pool was great and the tone of the camp was very friendly. We enjoyed our 3 night stay. (We extended our stay.) We camped at Brandywine Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Brandywine Creek. Very helpful staff. Level sites with plenty of shade and space for our dog. CG is not new, but has been well cared for. Nice pool, a playground for kids, easy to walk. Cable TV connection is "basic" but WiFi connection is excellent! The fishing pond needs a bit of work. We followed our GPS and had a long, winding route from I-76/PA Turnpike: should have followed the owner's suggested route. In a 35ft. 5th wheel we had no problem with the turn into the campground. Marsh Creek is a wonderful state park about 20 minutes from this CG. We camped at Brandywine Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice campground, wooded and very secluded. Owners are very friendly and helpful. The campground is about an hour east of Lancaster, maybe 45-minutes west of downtown Philadelphia and approximately 30-minutes from Intercourse, PA. The heart of Amish shopping. You've got to go to the Bird-In-Hand bakery! So you're not terribly far from what you came to this area for and yet you're camping under the stars with crickets for background noise instead of traffic noise. The cable TV system basically consists of the broadcast channels since Comcast recently switched everything else to digital requiring a decoder box (even if you have a digital TV). The Wi-Fi system is good with two nodes to choose from. We had 5-bars in site #32 with speeds ranging from 36-54 Mbps. Most of the time we were able to view TV programs and movies over the net with little-to-no buffering. About the only things that kept me from giving this park a 9 or 10 rating were: the spacing of the sites. They are a bit close together but still far enough apart so you can deploy your awning. The entrance to the campground is on a blind curve. If you have a larger RV (ours in 35') you might have to swing into the opposing lane in order to make the turn into the campground: this is not the fault of the owner's. On the plus side: the road is a lightly traveled country road, but it is a blind curve. And that brings up something you should be aware of. The campground entrance is located on SR 282, a narrow 2-lane country road with lots of curves and hills. Our motorhome is 11'8 tall but my radio antennas were banging against many of the low hanging overhead branches. A relatively better way to approach the campground if you're coming off of US 30 is to exit US 30 at US 322, go 1-2 miles north to Corner Ketch road until it dead ends at SR 282. Then turn left and the entrance to the campground will be about 1/2 mile on your right. US 322 is a very good road and while Corner Ketch is also a narrow, 2-lane country road with low overhead branches you'll find it a quicker than taking SR 282 all the way from US 30. We camped at Brandywine Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Very clean and quite park. Owners very friendly. Site was hard backing into with two trees on the corners. That was the only a minor problem. Campers very friendly. Great trout stream on the property. Will hopefully go back this year. We camped at Brandywine Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.
