great place, isolated and quiet. everything looks so clean once you get there. getting there is a whole different story, take your time and have your vehicle in top shape before doing so since is quite a long ways. great locale with the lake, tons of wild animals, fresh air and very good for taking photos. this is the spot...

Nice spot once you're there and set up. The roads coming in were so narrow I was very grateful that I didn't have to pass another RV. I'm glad I arrived around happy hour because I surely needed a drink after the last 5 miles. The roads within the park were very narrow, tight, twisty and hilly, as well. We... More

We had a tent site along the river. Large site, shaded, and the highlight was a couple of deer watching us from the opposite bank. The drawbacks: water is a short walk away, down by the boat launch (unless the W&E site facing your tent site is vacant), and the washrooms are up a short but steep hill. The staff... More

Only reason I would not give it a five star is because of price. Holiday rates were high. It is about 10 miles on very narrow windy roads from main highway. Great campground though. I am in a truck and tent. I was glad they put me behind lodge. Down by the lake there are no restrooms. People either walk... More

a nice campground tucked away in the mountains. NArrow and winding roads to get to the campground. large diesel pushers can make it, just be prepared to take your time. the swimming pool was a hit with the children. from there we drove into Philadelphia for a day of fun. A nice stop over.

Only stayed 2 nights. Bathrooms were very clean. Staff was very polite, patient and courteous. They took us to our site when we registered. We took the tour to Philadephia. Berta, our tour guide to Philadephia, was very good. I would recommend this campground.

I have been camping for over 15 years and so I have visited many camp grounds. The first 10 years was tent camping, the next 5 were in a pop up camper and now an upgrade again to a 23 footer and with a camper ( for those who have one) you have to have certain things like water, electric,... More

KOA Campground, Coatesville, PA What I like about it? Just about everything, and we will explain later in detail. Being brief………….. - Very clean in all areas of the campground. - Well staffed, friendly, and helpful. - Really good bathrooms. - 5 miles from shopping malls, or 7 miles from Walmart (in case you forgot to bring something). - 5...

We reserved a cabin at this camp ground for Memorial Day Weekend from Friday till Monday. Arriving on Friday the weather was horrible. It was raining with tempertures in the low forties. Needless to say, we couldn't cook outdoors. The owners and staff were fantastic. They recommended a local place to eat called Hoodie for lunch. It was excellent and... More

This is our second year staying at this campground and have been pleased both times. There are very well maintained facilities and plenty of planned events to keep kids entertained who aren't happy hanging around the campsite. The firewood for sale at the camp store isn't completely dry, however, and is cut too large for the fire rings so plan... More
