16 Parks near West Chester, Pennsylvania
Oct 2010 - $1.00
This is not a campground but has full hookup sites for people coming for service, trades and purchases. We traded our Country Coach for a Tiffin Allegro Bus. We stayed in their campground while our coach was getting additional items put on. So if you need good honest service for your coach, this is a good place. - Russell and Stephen

The park is in a very picturesque location far from any road noise. Access to the park is somewhat difficult, but is only 15 minutes from Philadelphia metro. Park could use some upgrading, particularly site pads and bathroom facilities. Too many weekenders with children and dogs. - Altoflyfisher

Campground is a KOA Holiday level site. Facilities are top-rate. Restrooms and facilities were clean and well-equipped. Used campground as a base to explore the Philadelphia area. Campground provided good maps and tips to the local area. Took commuter rail line from Bryn Mawr to downtown Phil. Could use closer station, but trains more frequent closer to Philadelphia. Pool and recreation building was newer. Getting to the campground was a challenge - narrow roads, out in the middle of nowhere. On the positive, no freeway noise - it is out in the country with lots of horse farms. - Al Z

We have spent every summer here for the past five years. There is no comparison. The space is beautiful, the area of Brandwine Valley just lovely. Fabulous shopping and site seeing nearby. Canoeing on the creek available. The rapids on the creek give a wonderful sound. Dog friendly. The positives outweigh the few less than stellar issues. Getting here is accomplished on a narrow road with untrimmed bushes sticking into our path. Some of the employees are taken with a grain of salt. But those minor things can't tarnish the sparkling swimming pool, great gift shop and rolling hill views. Excellent. - nickypoo

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. - Glendaj

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. - Casper2011

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. - phnz1

The check-in process was very painful/slow - it is clear they cater to seasonal site folks, and do not have many (if any) weekenders. 98% of the campground is seasonals - some are OK, most are very dirty, run-down, and trailer-park-ish, very few are nice. Their cancellation policy is the worst I have ever seen - basically forcing you to lose money if you need to cancel. Kids activities were OK, folks running them were rude, and you could tell they cater to seasonal folks. I would not go back. - Lspajm

Arrived after office closed - no instructions for late arrivals but all 'visitor' sites empty (site seems to be mainly residential)so no trouble setting up. All sites have sewer connections despite some being marked 'water & electric only'. Very old shower block: cold and drafty. Showers have to be held on constantly to get water. Wi-fi might be available but password required at additional charge! $44/nt for very basic provision. There are better, smarter RV Parks in the area - better positioned for exploring Amish country. - UK RV'ers

Spent Labor Day weekend here and had a very nice time, they are slowly fixing the place up still some rough looking seasonals that need some cleaning up and the bath house is not that large they could really use an upgrade there but things take time. They did upgrade some of their sites with upgraded electric and also sewer and also graded some other sites so in time I am sure things will improve. We will return. - DBLR

This is my second weekend stay here and I will be back. I took advantage of the new "virtual full hook-up" and it worked well. I was able to use a site that did not have sewer, which expanded my possibilities. They do not have a lot of sites with sewer hook-ups, I imagine because the place is built on rock. They come around daily to take gray water and on Sunday to empty both gray and black tanks. This went off without a hitch.
The campground is in the woods. The sites were decent size and gravel. Hook-ups were well-placed. There is no WiFi, but I had no trouble using 3G, and in fact is was as quick as the WiFi in my house for my usual Internet surfing. The site and campground in general were quite clean. It is fairly quiet and relaxing.
The only con was the shower, which is very low flow and makes showering quite lengthy and unenjoyable. Attention campgrounds! It takes a certain amount of water to rinse. You can low flow it or you can low pressure it, you can have faucets that constantly need to be turned back on throughout the shower, but it's still going to take the same amount of water to rinse my hair!!!
I will be returning here. - Driver25

This CG has the friendliest owners and seasonal campers of any private CG we've ever been to. It's the only private CG we go to. It's a peaceful happy place that we hate to leave. Everyone you see says hi. It's sites are wooded on stone roads it has a small pond for fishing and a large pool staffed with a lifeguard. Ice cream at the store is awesome. There's a couple trails including one that is about 2 miles to St. Peter's where you can play old pinball machines in a retro pinball arcade. - iamcorky

Warwick Woods is certainly in the woods. The sites are scattered up and down a hill that is in the woods. We had to have a lead car take us to our site in order to find it. The desk clerk gave us hints about the tight turns and trees so we got through without any problems. Fortunately, the site was very level and all the hookups worked just fine.
The campground was very busy on the weekend but there was never any noise or loss of privacy. We were there for six nights so we could see the differences from mid-week to the weekend. - Pennimanman

Overall a good CG and well kept. Although we had a very good stay, I took a couple points off for minor annoyances. All sites are gravel with lots of trees and grassy areas for tents. The pool is only open 10-5 which I thought was silly if a person is out doing tourist stuff during the day and wants to relax by the pool in the evening. Most of the roads are narrow and curvy so you may want to walk to your assigned spot first to ensure you can make it. During the weekend there are a lot of tent campers, kids, and dogs but everyone adhered to noise hours. There are a lot of full-timers and some of those spots look rather trashy which initially cast a negative outlook to our decision to stay there. - Goodcruisin

Stayed in C loop. Large roomy site, shaded but still got satellite signal. Camp hosts were very friendly, nice quiet place. Road into the park is a little tight, but not that bad. Would definitely camp here again! - bgg

There are four loops that are available, only one loop is available for those with pets. It appeared some loops were better maintained (restrooms and landscaping, etc) than the other loops. We stayed in C and it looked a little sloppy as the grass was long and not mowed. There is not a separate area for tent campers and during our stay, over 60% of the spots were occupied by tents. The park itself is nice with two lakes, beach area, pool, frisbee golf, boat rentals, hiking trails, etc. - TheRestlessYoungs

This park has three loops, one of which is for hookups. We stayed in the for hookup site. It was pretty quiet, so, even when the loop was full. The staff was always helpful. We could not get Internet or cell phone service. - Nibot

This is a good place to overnight. There are no utilities. Probably the worst part was we were parked on the north end and a train is right behind the trees there. Next time we will park as far south as we can. We felt very safe as there was security driving around all the time. We visited the casino and was surprised to find it was non-smoking....YEAH!! - jacknpeg

We were looking for a place near Wilmington but couldn't find one. So, we decided to "boondock" at the race track. It was very convenient and the weather cooperated and was cool. They don't mind if you camp in their parking lot, but want you to use the back parking spaces. There were quite a few truckers who overnighted too. I had to put a price, but there is no charge. - har-fl

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

$60 per night was for a level concrete-all-around site with full hookups. There are only three full hookup sites (the first site is kept unoccupied to be used as a dump station); the remaining sites have water and electric. All sites are first come, first served. This parking lot (many hospital employees park here) campground is located about one mile from many of the Philadelphia medical facilities including the VA Medical Center and UPENN Hospitals. In addition, all the amenities are close by. It's not much for looks (there are trees along the border fence) but if you're looking for a convenient-to-everything-place to camp and you're going to be out all day, this is the perfect location. Free shuttles are offered to the hospitals and bus stops. The dispatchers, who are the go to people, were very helpful and full of information. AT&T and Verizon cell service were full bars of 4G LTE. We used our Verizon jetpack for internet access as the campground Wi-Fi didn't provide enough speed for our needs. We received 43 over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. - DD Rolling Ranch

We had stayed here about 10 years ago and when we had to visit Delaware again, we again found that this is the ONLY place to park an RV in Northern Delaware. The price is extremely high because there is no other place to go. Very difficult to get into the park as highway 40 and the Dupont Highway split right in front of the building and there are large traffic walls. We had to go North on the highway, do a huge U-turn in driving rain and rush hour traffic before we could reach the entrance. Also, the name on the sign is different. It's supposed to be Delaware Motel and RV Park but the sign says "Delaware Autocourt-motel and trailer park" Also it says "build to suit" indicating to me that the place is for sale as well. I had trouble calling them for reservations but finally got through. We had a large dumpster next to space one, where they put us but told us "it had just been emptied." One of the big surprises was "the siren". I had read about this in reviews of nearby motels. It seems that the fire department is two doors up and whenever they get a call, even at 12:30 a.m, this enormous civil defense siren starts wailing. I thought it was for a nuclear attack the first time I heard it. It is so loud, its beyond belief, and hard to comprehend that they still do this activity in New Castle, Delaware.
The site we were at had reliable 50 amp service, water, and sewer, and I would have to say, even with the abandoned semi trailers scattered about, the people staying there were very nice to us, didn't bother us, and the maintenance fellow checked us in during a huge rainstorm, and waited out by the site to help us hook up, and he was sopping wet, but took it all in stride. It's just too bad somebody doesn't spend the money to whip the place in shape. They have a nice large area for the RV's, but it seems that there are mostly monthly or semi-permanent residents. There is a motel to the East of the RV park which you drive past to get into the spaces. - elduque

This place was way over priced for what it offered , but it was about the only thing available along our route - there aren't many campgrounds in Delaware. It's along a very noisy road, and the fire department right next door adds to the chaos several times a day. As previously mentioned, this is a place for an overnight stop only. There is a lot of junk sitting around from the hotel, and some rather unsavory-looking folks walked through the park while we were there. Nothing more than a gravel lot behind a motel, but the full hookups worked well with strong 50-amp power and water. We don't plan to return. - LowesTravels

Good place for and overnight stay. When verifying directions with MapQuest use address 259 S. Dupont. And in the Woodalls book it says 50 Ft. where US 40 and US 13 divide, it is really right at the actually divide. There is a Walmart just down the road on the right, you could walk there. But when leaving if you are headed east and want to get on I295, just go down to the WalMart, pull into the parking lot, go out toward Wilton (the street that runs in front of WalMart) turn left onto Wilton, go to the light, cross over US 40/US30, you'll be turning left on to US 40E this will take you back up to I295. - Travelin Jenkins
