5 RV Parks near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Oct 2016 - $64.00
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

This is a really nice park. The staff and other campers were very friendly. This is a big place and not your typical parking lot although there are spots that are parrallel but with a little more than normal space. There is plenty to do for kids. There are sensonal campers, old and new campers. Most are 5th wheels. It looks like they are expanding the park. If you take exit 16b on 195 get ready for a 2.5 mile ride on a rough small road. Take exit 16a alot nicer shorter ride to the camp site. My site had two dump ports, I used the wrong one, lucky I tried grey water first. - Vanslam

This campground is converting to KOA. Prices reflect that. It is very easy to access and convenient to Philadelphia. Sites in the front section are back in and close together. Sites in rhe back section are pull through. We travel in a motorhome towing a car. The pull through sites have the services all the way at the back of the site. You will not be able to leave a car attached unless you have and use long extensions. The pull through sites have picnic tables on concrete slabs. They are narrow to pull in and most concrete slabs have been broken up by folks driving across them to enter their site. Verizon connectivity was good. Cable was great, extensive set of stations including sports networks. - Pktva

Recently became KOA, so they have an upgraded store and were almost finished remodeling the bathrooms. New tile floors, new shower fixtures, very clean. OK pricing for the location. Easy access to Philadelphia. Sites are very close together and open. Parking lot style, but with some grass and a few trees. Easy access to Philadelphia using PATCO (train) from New Jersey. Be sure to call PATCO first - they will tell you which station is best, and notify the local police so that you don't get ticketed or towed. We were told to park at Lindenhurst, and there was plenty of room at the far end, and no objection to taking up four parking stalls. Entry to the lot was a little narrow, but doable - OlderGoat

This campground looks great. There are lots of trees, but also sunny sites. We watched cows nursing their babies in the pasture, and you can buy farm-fresh eggs at the campground store. So why the low rating?
(1) The electricity fluctuated. It spikes up and down. First you'll have 120 volts. A few hours later it'll drop to less than 110. (2) The water pressure also fluctuates. You'll have good pressure, then in the middle of your shower it slows down. (3) Ants, lots of them, invading our RV. This problem probably could have been alleviated somewhat if they cut the grass more often. It was over my ankles. (4) The trash cans were overflowing. Apparently, it is picked up on Fridays. Which means that the trash generated by the many weekenders sits here for a full week. - mrpeepers

This campground was clean and quiet, and the campsites were fairly level. My only complaint was that, contrary to what I was told, you could not get a view of satellite from the 50 amp sites. I then moved to a 30 amp site and was given a refund for the price difference with no problem. I then had to deal with acorns dropping on my motorhome and car. I could have move again but decided to stay in that site. I would stay hear again but I would chose a 30 amp site with no overhead trees. - TomG100

We read a number of reviews and decided we'd chance this CG. We are very happy we did! This is a very nice quiet CG. We took a walk around Sunday morning and all we heard was the wind in the trees, a couple bull frogs by the ponds and the chirping of birds. No traffic, no trains!
The roads inside are gravel. The sites are mostly all grass, some are gravel, most all are pretty level and good sized. The swimming lake is not the place it may once have been, but the new pool has made that a moot point. The pool is a relatively new addition, just a couple years old. Electric was good, water pressure was good, there is no cable. In truth we did not miss cable, we had a handful of air channels but didn't bother with TV. WiFi is spotty as was Sprint phone. There are a couple sites that will allow two units to face each other, nice if you are traveling with another family or a friend. I will definitely return here. - blues traveler

This campground has a nice wooded section (the 400's) We were there midweek in July,not crowded. There is a nice little pond,no pool. However they do not stay in office/store past 3pm. For no good reason they kept the Game room locked up except for weekend. Worst part was the small bathroom with single shower stall,smaller than a phone booth. The faucet is set, NO control of temperature! - Bill Fin

The park is wooded which is nice but the roads are poorly maintained. We camped in site 428 near a shower. Unfortunately, the only a single shower for men an women was open, it was not clean, the hot water went from cold to hot to cold. This shower served about 45 sites. Other showers and baths were locked. When we complained the next morning, they were unreceptive and acted as if we should be grateful we were able to get a shower. Clearly they did not have customer service in mind. Additionally, the bathrooms had no towels, dryers, or soap dispensers. Many of the sites are permanent and rundown. Recommend skipping this campground if you have other options. - EUSJNM

I did not expect much when we were able to make a holiday reservation 1 1/2 week prior. This campground could be a nice place if the owners made needed improvements. The entrance tells the story. They have too many old seasonals with decks and outbuildings in disrepair. We stayed In the 400's section which was nice (no seasonals). The water supply was little more than a trickle. The site was wooded and large. The bathroom which was a newer bathroom was very dirty There was no bench or a place to hang clothes. Several toilets were not working. The camp did not have pump out service. We chose this place because it was close, and it was the first time for a first time RV owner trying to camp on a holiday. I only wish the owners could see this place with the eyes of a camper. This place could be nice, but a bulldozer and dumpsters are needed. - shakieg

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
