Daughter #5 will be starting her 1st job out of Grad School in Philadelphia in October. We anticipate a number of trips up that way and would like to hear the good, bad and ugly for any campgrounds in the area.
We stayed at the West Chester/Philly KOA in June for two weeks. Cl;ean nice camp ground. About 20 minutes from train station then another 50 minute ride into Philly. Worst part was the tight winding roads to and from the cg.
The bad: For the most part the campgrounds in the mid-west/eastern U.S. are poor. They were opened years ago for campers to park a trailer for summer get aways. They are often off the beaten path and usally situated on a old stinky lake miles from the nearest city. The good: Last spring I stayed in Lancaster, Pa at the Country Acres RV, fullhookups with cable, $36, and it was a nice campground. However, it was about 80 miles from Philadelphia. They did have a great little diner about 2mi West of the Park. We drove to Philidelphia for a day trip and I don't remember seeing another RV park along the way.
