This campground is probably wonderful for families. There are lots of activities, a lake and a pool, hayrides, etc. But not so much for old fogies like us, in a big rig. The roads to the campground are 10 miles of narrow, winding country lanes. The driveway into the campground is not quite one lane wide, with obstacles or drop-offs on both sides. There are few places for a small car to pull off to let an RV pass. The site we had (Lake-8) was so steeply sloped that we could not level the coach. It did not have 50-amp service or a sewer at the site. We had no trouble with the Wi-Fi. We found the camping cost to be very expensive – the second most we’ve ever paid anywhere in 15 years of RVing! We would not stay here again. It was my mistake to choose this campground. We camped at Colonial Woods Family Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a very different RV park from the ones we've been staying at for this past year on the road. We are used to well manicured, well furnished parks for older folks who are traveling. On the other hand, this very rustic park is family and kid friendly. Over the weekend, the place was crawling with happy children, running around unsupervised and seemingly safe. So, it depends upon what you are looking for. The place is tucked away in the hills and a bit of a challenge to find. Roads are paved and smooth, sites are gravel and fairly level. WiFi worked fairly well, though a bit slow at times. Our biggest gripe as full timers was the lack of sewer hookups. Our large tanks served us for five days before we had to leave. For families with small children, it is perfect. For Geritol Gypsies, it is less so. We camped at Colonial Woods Family Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Colonial Woods is a real gem. The roads are very wide at the campground, the sites are spacious, the group sites are excellent for get togethers. They have really good activities and a very child friendly atmosphere. Pets are welcome and were never uncomfortable. The store is well stocked and nicely staffed. There are a lot of permanent sites in nice locations, mostly well kept (by renter it appeared), and the overnite sites are nicely separated. The sites are mostly very level, with only one rig that I saw with more than two layers on blocks to get it straight. They have a great pool, nice athletic areas and well kept grounds. The mini golf is a little old fashioned but the lake and ponds are fun for any family looking to do a little fishing. The Delaware is nearby for more serious anglers. One issue - the main public restroom. I found that the stalls were WAY too small and I am only 5'10" and not overweight. Since we have a trailer it did not affect us much, but the one time I needed to use it I was pretty uncomfortable. It was clean, but it had an old fashioned door latch at the top of the door. They a have better restroom at the store but that is not very convenient to the camp sites. Considering they were upgrading the utility poles and had every site booked this last weekend, they could have aimed some funds at improving that facility. Hopefully it's high on their list of to-dos. Still, the rest of the park made up for that issue and I will return to this gem again. Colonial is a nice place to visit.

Colonial Woods is great in most respects. The setting is heavily wooded, quiet, and secluded. The staff is helpful, friendly and eager to please. The store is well stocked with reasonable prices. I have many kudos and compliments, but I also have gripes. 1. For a CG this large to have so few restrooms is surprising. And, when you add the fact that there are no sewer hookups it's close to unreasonable. (they do have "honey wagon" service). There are only three bathhouses with a total of only four showers for men and I assume the same number for women. 2. The pool is located across the lake in the half of the grounds that is reserved for seasonals and perms. 3. The lack of useable Wi-Fi. Sporadic Tengo Internet is a disappointing waste of time and money. The wife says we'll go back. I'm not so sure. We camped at Colonial Woods Family Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

This was a rustically nice campground. When I reserved my site, I was under the impression that I was getting full hookups, and 50 amp service. They only have 30amp service, and no sewer. So the start of my camping trip was off to a rough start. Probably my fault for not double checking. Keeping things in perspective, all the employees were very nice and helpful. I didn’t like my original site, so they changed it without hassle. They informed me that it was OK to let my Grey Water run into the woods, so the lack of sewer was no longer a major problem, and we just ran one Air Conditioner to keep the breaker from popping. The campground was clean, and they have several small streams running throughout. Roads in the campground are either gravel or paved. The store was well stocked (they even had the cap needed to run my grey out to the woods). The site was not level. My levelers had my rear wheels off the ground. We were disappointed to find that there were no chairs at the pool. You need to bring your own. My family and I had a great time. We would consider coming here again, just not in a heat wave. We camped at Colonial Woods Family Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice shaded family campground. Site was graveled, but not level. Had to block the front of the trailer to get it level, but not overly so. Electric and water worked fine, but the power and water went out for the entire campground on the last night we were there. Lots of activities for the kids. A very nice pool and lodge, well stocked camp store and very friendly staff. Would visit again. The rate reflects a holiday rate.

We have camped at Colonial Woods 3 times in the last three years and it is a wonderful camping area. The first year we camped there we were put in an open site near the pool that we weren't sure we'd like. It ended up being a great place because the pond was just across the road and we could let our kids go to the pool on their own and be comfortable that we could watch them. The bathrooms were clean and the campground had activities such as a movie, ice cream sundae party and archery for families. There is a nice playground and camp store. Our children specifically asked to go back to this campground as we traveled through the area. We camped at Colonial Woods Family Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Very nice park and we had a great site (FS3) that was nicely treed with privacy between the sites. The ground is crushed stone and very level. Lots of things in the park - pool, tennis, fishing pond, nice store, mini-golf. The staff is very friendly and helpful - we had a pretty big mechanical issue with our camper and they were very helpful in assisting me. About 1 hour north of Philly with several things to do nearby. Nice campground, nice sites! We would definitely stay again. We camped at Colonial Woods Family Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Very nice campground. Seasonal sites are separate from the 'transient' sites, but the 'seasonals' have to drive their golf carts through the 'transient' sites to get to the campground store. Pretty much all of the sites are shaded by trees, and most of the sites are spacious enough for tents/PUPs/and most travel trailers - there's not many sites that would be comfortable for a big-rig motorhome. Bathrooms are relatively clean, but the only showers are in the bathrooms adjacent to the campground store/office. The store is well-stocked with RV and campsite supplies, as well as kid's toys and some clothing. The campground's ponds are great for fly or light-tackle fishing, and the swimming and splash pool areas are nice (but very little shaded) - the pool area is actually located in the seasonal section, so it gets well-used by those folks. While we were only there for three nights, they seem to offer many activities for kids and adults alike, including movie night for kids, bingo for older kids and adults, and they have a mini-golf course and shuffleboard courts on-site. There are quite a few attractions in the nearby area (we went to Crayola Factory, which is about 25 minutes north of the campground), but if you are looking for a nice, peaceful place in the woods to relax for a while, Colonial Woods is an excellent option. One of my 'wishes' though is for them to install showers at the bathhouses. Other than that, we were very pleased. We camped at Colonial Woods Family Camping Resort in a Tent Trailer.

We booked a week here after enjoying a stay for Mother's Day Weekend. We reserved site R6 (best in the whole place). It definitely fills up on the weekends. Not all sites are as private and quiet as ours. I can see some sites being noisy and on top of each other which is nice when camping with friends but not with "strangers". All staff and seasonals very friendly and their children included mine in the daily activities. We will book a week again next summer, maybe even two! Honey wagon (pump out) service was $5. Can't say enough about this great campground. We camped at Colonial Woods Family Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We had high hopes considering the reviews for this place. But, we won't be back. It wasn't terrible, just not enough to get us back. Our site was VERY UNLEVEL and close together. The pool was nice, but far away from the transient sites (over near the seasonals). If you have small children, it's a bit of a hike, especially at the end of the day when they are tired. There is only 1 dump station on the transient side of the campground. Needless to say: on Memorial Day weekend it was backed up! We drove over to the seasonal side, and were told we couldn't dump there even though no one was there. We ended up driving home with a full tank. It's unlikely we'll be back.

Just returned from our second stay at Colonial Woods. We LOVE it here! We were in a spacious, creek side site (R6). Everyone very friendly. We camped at Colonial Woods Family Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We camped here on our maiden voyage. The pull-through site was an interesting variation of the standard pull-through. Think of a horseshoe driveway. It worked out very well, the site giving us allot of privacy on the awning side, though that cut down on the people watching. Friendly staff and clean bathrooms (though the stalls were a bit tight to the knees). Good fishing pond for kids (catch and release). Nice pool and tons of kids on bikes/scooters/rollerblades. The roads are a little narrow, but the areas where you need to make a turn (maneuvering into the dump station for instance) were well laid out. Some seasonals were a bit snippy about unmarked 'private drives. ' We were walking on the road, not on their site, but that was really the only negative. We were looking for a nice place to go for a short weekend without leaving the campground, this fit the bill. I would definitely go back.

My biggest gripe is that the staff here is incredibly rude. Rudeness is something that can completely ruin your stay, and it is what made me rate this campground so low. The site we stayed in wasn't level and was very awkward to get into. The pools were not opened when we visited, but they looked very nice. They had some fishing lakes which looked very dirty (as in littered, with trash). The playground was very modern and updated. The bathrooms are spread very far apart. Also, be prepared for a very treacherous drive on your way here. We camped at Colonial Woods Family Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here for Heroes Weekend and had a great time fishing in the lake and attending the activities that weekend. The only problem we ran into that weekend was that the site we were assigned was extremely difficult to get into with our trailer because of the trees in the site. It took some help from friends, but we were finally able to get into the site. The positive thing though was that the sites were "stone" so we didn't have a problem with mud after the rain that first evening.
