Why you’ll love Lums Pond State Park

Within the park there is plenty to keep the kids busy. For the younger kids there is a nice playground, and the older set is sure to enjoy the Go Ape Zipline and rope course through the tree tops. There is a nice lake with a boat

First time staying here, and certainly not the last. We stayed for one night on Thanksgiving weekend and were amazed how many other people were camping here. It was full! When you think State Park, you think of very basic camping. For the price, it’s incredible. Full hookups, paved sites (recently renovated). Very modern, and easy to navigate. Feels like an RV resort! Camp Hosts on sites, small store, and the property is beautiful. Only downfall was no firewood available for sale on site. We can’t wait to go back! So much to do and see here.” – Chieftain1986

Reviews of the Philadelphia/West Chester KOA

“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, RV Park Reviews

“We stayed at this campground for a few days while visiting the area. For our tours of Longwood Gardens and Hagley Museum, the campground was very conveniently located. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, providing good directions and maps. The location was quiet and pleasant. The campground had a nice swimming pool, miniature golf, and rental canoes. Located on a very narrow, hilly, curvy byway, notice that an approach from the south is recommended. Even so, care must be taken on the narrow, sharp curves, especially around the Embreeville mill. Campground roads are basically gravel, and sites are dirt and gravel.” – tnyankee, RV Park Reviews

Reviews of Woodlands Camping Resort

“This park is run by the seasonal campers. They are very welcoming and keep the place well maintained. The sites here are huge with a lot of trees and shade. The seasonal sites are well established with stone work and displays. The pool is great for the kids- there are three sections one at 1.5 feet, 3 feet, and a 5 foot section. There are no life guards, but the seasonal people keep a good eye on you. There is a great pond for fishing and make sure you check out bingo night. Watch out for the golf carts and make sure you have time to talk to the locals ( they want to know who you are, because “you ain’t usually here” was the most common conservation starters).” – hammermill2003, RV Park Reviews

Reviews of Yogi Bears

“This campground is very nice with mostly shady sites and dirt/sand roads. Some of the sites are tight. The campground has a very nice pool and a small splash park for the kids. The pool does have a slightly cloudy appearance, but is very clean. Not being a pool guy it almost appeared that they kept it that way for some valid reason. Staff was also checking the balance of the pool and adding water very often. They also have 2 inflatable water slides, one being a pretty good sized.

They also have a nice store with hot food and ice cream. Overall the entire property was well maintained. There was a large number of scheduled activities for campers which was great. They also have a small fishing pond. Golf cart rentals are available and most golf cart users where courteous, there were a few kids riding around on small electric mini bikes which were a little out of control. The restrooms & showers were very clean.” -Jacdanboy, RV Park Reviews

Reviews of the Clarksboro KOA

“This is a really nice park. The staff and other campers were very friendly. This is a big place and not your typical parking lot although there are spots that are parrallel but with a little more than normal space. There is plenty to do for kids. There are sensonal campers, old and new campers. Most are 5th wheels. It looks like they are expanding the park. If you take exit 16b on 195 get ready for a 2.5 mile ride on a rough small road. Take exit 16a alot nicer shorter ride to the camp site. My site had two dump ports, I used the wrong one, lucky I tried grey water first. We camped at Philadelphia South KOA (formerly Timberlane Campground) in a Motorhome.” -RV Park Reviews

Reviews of Hidden Acres Campground

“My husband and I stayed in a popup camper on 4th of July weekend. Arrived late, they were fine with it. We got a pull-through site. We forgot a few things but their little supply store had everything we needed. They do have a $10 minimum for cards though. The sites were nicely spaced and clean.

The “quiet time” was 11 pm. We didn’t hear a peep after then which was very nice. They had plenty of activities to do so you weren’t bored. The fireworks on July 4th were AWESOME! The downsides were the narrow roads, WiFi was only available at the Office area and the map was a little hard to read at first but other than that it was great. We will definitely be back! We camped at Hidden Acres Campground in a Tent Trailer.” – NKatieA, RV Park Reviews

“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. We camped at Hidden Acres Campground in a Motorhome.” – Goodcruisin, RV Park Reviews

Reviews of Old Cedar Camp

“Just finished a long weekend here. One of the better campgrounds we’ve enjoyed. Full hook ups, two fishing ponds, a swimming lake and a swimming pool. Wooded sites, clean facilities. The camp store wasn’t outfitted with the most modern merchandise, nor was there a lot of merchandise. But the basics were there (including ice cream treats) and there was an arcade connected to the store. Another reviewer mentioned mud appeared in the sites when it rains- which tends to happen when you’re camping in the woods! All in all, no complaints about this camp, and we will definitely return to it.” – Good Sam Reviews

Reviews of Spring Gulch Resort Campground

It was just a quick get away for us. We have been there one other time and had a great time so we wanted to go back. We stayed in site 703 next to the pond. This was a great spot. Everyone at Spring Gulch was very friendly and helpful.

Site

Our site was perfect. We had a great view of the pond, easy to get in and out of. There was plenty of room on both sides so we did not feel like we were on top of each other. Looking at the map of the park, most spots look good. If you are on the upper level I don’t think there is a bad spot to park a camper. Some sites are not as wide or deep as others, but when you call to make your reservations they should be able to help navigate you to the right size spot.

Sites 200 to 400 on the lower level are nice for trailers but again ask about the size restrictions when you call. Navigating around some of the roads can be tricky. I took the wrong way to get to my site and had a difficult time getting my trailer over the bridge. There was an alternative route that was much easier had I asked the best way to get there.

Playground

The lower play ground was small, more geared towards younger kids. We road by the upper playground and there seemed to be more for kids there. My kids love a good playground, but with so many other things to do this was not an issue.

Pool

There are two, one in the upper campground and one in the lower. – Campcation, CampingRoadTrip

“Campers would be hard pressed to find a camping environment to equal the quality of this facility. Add to this the most wonderful, kind and giving owners, Connie and Glen and the extremely friendly atmosphere. Situated in the heart of Amish Country with rolling hills, beautiful Amish farms and close to Lancaster and un-ending tourist attractions. On most day’s, a family of Amish with their beautiful traditional dress bring vegetables, picked fresh from the garden, along with home crafted Amish wares. We called far ahead for site reservations because word of this great campground is spreading quickly.” -David T, Facebook
