15 Parks near Ottsville, Pennsylvania
Aug 2015 - $42.00
This park is mostly for seasonal campers. They do have one loop of daily sites available. The sites are mostly level, but getting into them could be quite tricky. Some are only tent friendly. The roads are narrow and not at all big rig friendly in the daily loop. They do have a nice field option that would be for great big rigs.
The bathrooms are dated and the showers were okay. The camp store is packed and the arcade will keep the little guys busy for a little while on a rainy day. The pool is this parks crown jewel. It has a couple of fantastic water slides. It is very well kept.
The Wi-Fi is only available by the office, not throughout the campground. You also need to get the password from the store. It did work, but only if there was not a lot of people using it. It would slow to a crawl. The campground has a gate so you will need to get the card at registration. A/C is a $3.oo add on. - 4njcampers

We stayed at a corner site that was level, and nice size. It had a good amount of privacy with densely wooded areas on all sides (view at back of site through sparse vegetation: well maintained seasonal site and transient tent/pop-up sites, to the left through thicker vegetation; transient site), directly in front of site playground and rally field. Site was fine stone, campground roads/walking paths rocky terrain (watch out for random ankle breaker sized rocks). Site was nicely wooded with large mature trees that offered shade throughout the day. Nice pool with clean bathrooms and hot showers just a short walk away. Good high efficiency washer and dryer. Mostly seasonals here. No Wi-Fi or Sewer, pump-out service Mondays and Fridays, $3 extra per day for air conditioner and a few extra random charges. No recycling containers-carry out cans/bottles/paper. Staff were somewhat helpful. Seasonal sites hit or miss-a lot of older/ weathered RVs.. Be sure to follow campsite directions, roads in the area are very curvy and narrow. Close drive to nice state parks. - ryjackopher

Nice, quiet, wooded campground. Sites are are little tight to get in to, but plenty of room once you're set up. The roads leading to the campground are narrow and curvy. Office people are very friendly and helpful. - bgg

Nice campground, good location, nice grounds. Was crowded when I was there. Pool area looked really, really busy (did not go in). Overall, a good choice in Bucks County area. - jmelaw

Very accommodating for late arrival. Very noisy and active at 11 PM on a Saturday night - people (teens, children, adults) walking all over the park - no curfew? The site was not level, the water source is a bunch of hoses laying all around on the ground from one site to another with taps available here and there. The pool(s) were nice - large heated pool, two kiddie pools with sprinklers and water buckets; whirlpool not very warm and not very bubbly. Lots of trees and rocks. A nice covered bridge walkway from store to lakefront, then to pool area. Mini-golf course is a hazard yet they still charge for use: broken and sagging boards, rusty nails sticking out, uneven ground and play areas. Not impressed. - Forrest Woods

A heavily wooded campground about 60 miles north of Philadelphia, close to the Delaware River and other northern Bucks County attractions. Difficult to find; watch out for narrow roads - plan ahead. Arrived late on a Friday night; "David" thankfully escorted us to the site, which was wide, clean and flat with stones. Permanent sites are separated from transients. Most permanents in good shape. An active campground with organized games throughout Saturday for children and teens. Camp store is well-stocked, with an indoor game area. Large lake for fishing and two pools with water play-features. A high cost for only water and electric - knocked down my rating. Charges $7.50 per adult guest. One dumping station means you'll be lining up to get out on Sunday. Be sure to leave an extra hour. Trash is picked up on site (didn't learn that until we drove around looking for a Dumpster). There's a honeywagon too, but the service isn't available on weekends, or wasn't well advertised. We have friends in the area and will likely visit again. - Lancaster Camper

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

Very clean and well maintained park. Lots of seasonals, but everyone was very friendly. Store is smaller, but stocked nicely. Pool looks brand new. Is on the smaller side, but was comfortably warm and clean. Small baby pool with a fountain also. Daily activities geared for families and kids, we did not take part in. Good place to just hang out and relax. Our site was across from the playground which had a light that was on all night. That was annoying but understandable. I would recommend a site further down from R-4 if you have a choice. - gandb26

Stayed for a month. Restrooms are clean during the week but get trashed during the weekends when the campground fills up and there is only one restroom (mens and womens has 3 toilet stalls and 2 showers each) in the whole place. Owner and staff nice. No sewer hookups, honey dipper service was weekly and additional $. Seasonal people were very nice and friendly and welcoming, they have events for kids every weekend. Pool was nice, got crowded with people and their oversized toys sometimes. No lifeguard. Cute baby pool. Wi-Fi in clubhouse worked well. Location is great and we would stay again. - sbrigga315

Good for families who want playground and pool and events; pricey and a bit too much activity for full-timers who just want a nice, quiet campsite away from it all. Approach from south, not north, as roads wind and are difficult from north. Restrooms clean enough, but dated. With lots of seasonals and local families with kids staying here, it was not one of our favorite campgrounds. That said, if you want to be in this area, which we did, this will do just fine - just expect a lot of activity in the summertime. - Jolly Out There

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

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

Wow! This was a refreshing twist to RV camping. Way off the beaten path we saw some amazing old houses on our way to this site. Trees and fields, plenty of space for kids to run and play, loads of wildlife including deer, beavers and chipmunks. Bathrooms were shocking clean for such a rustic location. These owners definitely aim to please. Located just outside of Easton this was a great pit stop on our way to Crayola Experience, I only wish we could have stayed longer. Millions of stars and fireflys at night.... No lights anywhere near this camp ground. If your looking to rough it with electric and water this is the place to go! Cash only. - GMC_STRIPES

Nice quiet park, even on the weekends! This park is VERY out of the way. They do not have a lot of amenities nor activities, but they are close to a lot of attractions. They do not have a pool, but do have a swimming pond. It would be nice if they added just a little bit to their playground area. If your are looking for amenities, this is not for you. If you are looking for peace and quiet, and real camping, then stay here! - grim509

This is a nice park, actually a farm/campground run by a very friendly family. We had a hard time finding it, but we came in the 'back way'. It would be easy from the direction that we exited. The shower house was dated, but clean. There were a lot of bugs, but that's because we were way back in the trees, very secluded. Overall, a nice park in an area where there aren't many. - Mo_Camper

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

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
