I choose to stay at this KOA after spending 4 days in Philadelphia. The trip from the city was nice - not too far. I picked this location for it's proximity to Longwood Gardens (which is wonderful btw). I stayed in a tenting spot. The spots are all down along the riverfront which was nice. Most had at least some... More

This KOA is the best yet! We stayed on a new patio site a little pricey but definitely worth it! Site was very very large and level it was up a mountain and overlooked the campground so pretty. Stores are about 12 miles away so try and bring what you need, camp store has lots of supplies but you will... More

On final approach to this campground it was a little bit hairy in our 38-foot motor home, which was towing a Saturn. The road is very windy and goes up and down hills, which pretty much describes the campground, too. But that's what's so lovely about it. We were there for a graduation at Temple U. in Philly, and were... More

Clean, up to date cabins, great staff and location, would definitely recommend this KOA to families with kids. Cabins 13 an 6 are especially nice, the waterfront tent sites were also a plus. Will be back again soon! The river side location was great, canoes for rent are a nice bonus.all within 45 miles of Philadelphia.

Okay campground west of Philly. Tight roads getting back to the RV campground. Friendly hosts. We had a pull through site. Unfortunately it was not very level and we really had to jack up the rear to get our coach leveled. Very limited Verizon service back in this area. WiFi was so-so.

This was our first time taking our grandkids camping to a KOA site . The 5 year old had a ball. The 14 year olds were a little bored. Not much too do if your older . Very clean. Nice people reasonable priced. Fishing, golfing canoeing and swimming . We rented a 2 room cabin. The only negative thing I... More

We found this beautiful campground while visiting relatives in the West Chester area. It was a little difficult to find but once we did we were very pleased. The staff were nice and everything at this KOA was clean. Restrooms were beautiful and it had great amenities. You can play mini golf, fish, swim or just relax in this beautiful... More

This campground was a bit more pricey than most KOA's we have stayed at. The sites were rather unlevel and required a lot of blocking to level the camper. Close to many attractions and easy to get to from the Philadelphia area. Was guided to our site and helped to back in by the owner of the campground.

Surly, rude and uncalled for. These employees have no clue about customer service. And it wasn't just me...I watched how they treated other customers. Our site was against a hillside - we had only enough room for two chairs. And to get to the back of our coach we had to walk over the bench of the picnic table. All... More
