RV Resort?? More like the LAST RESORT. What a pit. One (barely working) shower for whole campground. No laundry, no amenities other then a overgrown pond.
Only good thing I can say about the office staff is they're rarely there: so the abuse they espouse is kept to a minimum. AVOID THIS PLACE unless of course it's your LAST RESORT.
Lots are very close and have a fire ring. Site surface is dirt. - Jeff AP

This park is mainly privately owned RV lots, with park model units ( they look like log cabins). There are a few RV lots, but most are in disrepair. The developer is presently in a legal battle with the HOA, thus all rents have to be paid to the County Sheriff. Our rate is based on a monthly rate. I would stay away from this park until legal issues are resolved. The wireless worked well; TV is very poor; the cable is just an old fashioned CATV. - BillI

Laurel Pond is a money making scam! We stayed here in our RV in one of their "Luxury" sites. The website shows beautiful, clean, well maintained sites. In reality you get a dirty, muddy site over grown with bushes. The "president" or "manager" moves you in, collects your money, and is never to be seen or heard from again until he wants more money. There has been a huge amount of problems with our stay at Laurel Pond: 1) Most importantly, the owner did not pay the electric bill for 3 months, therefore causing the office, wifi, and water well pump to shut down. Meaning we were without water for 2 days with no end in sight. The Health Department then came through and shut the campground down and ordered everyone to vacate or pay fines. Some of these people had just paid $1600.00 to stay in the lodge for a month and will not be refunded. We paid $585.00 to rent an RV site for a month and were told to leave with two weeks still left on our rental agreement. 2) The water is nasty! It is untreated well water and will ruin anything porcelain or plastic in your RV! It is a simple fix, but the owner refuses to remedy the situation. 3) The Sheriff's Department showed up with a Writ of Execution stating that the owner owed money, and a lien was placed on the property; therefore all those who are renting will now pay rent to the Sheriff's Department. Shortly after this was served, the owner came by and demanded that we pay him and not the sheriff which is illegal. He was hoping to be paid under the table. 4) There are zero amenities; everything is over grown and not taken care of at all! We did not even have a picnic table at our site which is pretty standard at even the most basic campgrounds. 5) Owner will not answer the phone, even in the event of an emergency on site. 6) Owner tries to intimidate you with legal mumbo jumbo that doesn't make any sense at all to get you to pay him cash instead of doing the legal thing. 7) The lodges are gross! The laundry (linens) is washed inside and hung out to dry, sometimes for weeks or days and placed on the beds with ticks, hair (human and pet) and other gross things on them. The lodges also stink like mold or trash. 8) The owner has horrible record keeping skills and "guesses" the meter readings. Some people were charged $400.00 for one month's electric from the owner's "best guess" at meter reading. We took pictures of ours and wrote it down and our bill was still wrong. I could go on and on, but these are the most important things you need to know. Do not stay here unless you like to give away money! - HappilyUprooted

Very nice park. Rustic with sandy dirt roads, a little narrow but fine for our 33' mh. Sites were sandy, ours was shady, fire rings at each site, a little narrow but fine for 2 slide outs. Overall the campground is older and could use a little sprucing up, but had lots of activities for kids, two playgrounds, very nice clean pool, and a DJ on Sat. night. They had paddle boats for rent and fishing in the lake. Looked like several permanent sites. Staff was friendly. Pool was kept open another week because of hot weather. Visited family living in NJ, will definitely stay again. Close to Six Flags and the shore. - RockyRanch

Stayed for the weekend with very young grand-kids. They didn't notice the very small size of the pull thru site nor the fact that it was overgrown. Seemed like MOST of the sites were seasonal/permanent with many in great disrepair. Speed limit of 5 mph is a fantasy, no way to go that fast in a MH because of the many potholes/craters. Pool seemed very nice although not used. Many sites were WELL decorated for Christmas in July which the grand-kids enjoyed. While the campground is kinda rundown, the campers/guests were EXTREMELY friendly. Campground was chosen due to proximity to my kids' house. - Vrrmm Rydr

This CG is a bit on the old side. Dirt roads with ruts and uncut grass. There are some eye sore sites. - Michael47

Planned this as a weather stop over but was surprised we could get anywhere in Philly from here. Be advised they are stopping service at this location end of December 31 2018. Even though it is simply a parking lot and does have water and electric available and a central dump station. It was a great location to base your RV and visit Philly. - Art Goldsmith

It's hard to rate this one. It's a parking lot in South Philly. Their primary business is as a park and ride for people going to the University of Pennsylvania Hospital, but there are about a dozen spaces with hookups crammed closely together on one side of the lot, and overflow parking for a bunch more. Shuttles run between the lot and the hospital 24/7. It's about a 5 minute ride to the hospital, then there are public transit connections to everywhere else (about 15-20 minutes to the tourist locations in the center of the city). Or it's a $10, 15 minute Lyft ride directly from the park to the center of town. The employees were all super friendly and helpful. Between the razor wire perimeter, bright lights, and the presence of bus drivers and other campers, it seemed safe enough. The lot has all of the basics, restrooms and showers that I never looked at (someone else said they were actually pretty good), dump station, dumpster. There's a small patch of grass by the entrance if your dog needs it. There's also a fair bit of trash around, and it's next to a train yard. Between the trains, buses, and a jerk who appears to be living in the last campsite next to the tracks with some loud motorized bike that he likes to ride around the parking lot in the evenings, it's not quiet. But it's very convenient for visiting Philly, and very cheap when compared to other big city RV parks. If you can pick your site, the ones in the front, farthest from the railroad tracks, are quietest. If I were visiting Philly again, yes, I would stay here again. But a lush state park it ain't. - AnnP

This park is Urban Camping at it's best. It is super close to all of fun and historical things to do in Philadelphia. Campus Park & Ride is essentially a commuter parking lot next to a warehouse that has electric and water connections at each site. It is a no frills place to safely connect your RV, camp and enjoy one of the best cities on the East Coast. Their staff is SUPER friendly and helpful with directions and recommendations. - ETCTA

We only stayed a weekend, barely used the restrooms, but saw enough to know this place has seen batter days. It's like it has the bones of a very nice resort: guard house (unattended for years), nice fences, large pool, wide sites, large grassy play area (used to be grassy), huge gathering hall, but now everything is in disrepair or needs maintenance badly. However, the staff here are super nice, eager to please, and helped us out when we got into a jam and had to leave early due to a family-related issue we couldn't control. That offsets a lot in my book. - ObjectsInMotion

Rate reflects 8 nights. No discounts. I did not use any of the facilities. The pool is large and there is a wide open play area for children. They gave me a pull-through that wasn't quite ready for an occupant. They are updating the sewer lines so the connection pipe was quite high making it difficult to use gravity to empty the tanks. I opted to just use the dump station on the way out. Site numbering is a bit wacky. When looking at the park map, I counted five #1s. So each section has a #1. Confusing to say the least. The roads need some attention but overall, I think they are trying to overcome the previous bad reviews. The park was close to empty except for the long-term guests that pretty much had their own area. I did have some difficulty getting the Wi-Fi. Pretty quiet. - RVingMe

This is a very busy camp ground. The spots are shaded and some, like mine was hard to level. The staff was nice to a point. - Vanslam

This is only 20 minutes from our home and it has taken us 2 years to get here! I wish we had come sooner. We biked the tow path to Stockton and crossed the bridge to Dilly's Corner. What an amazing weekend skipping rocks on the Delaware and hiking & biking the beautiful area. We cannot wait to come back. We choose site 15 as other reviewers said it was spacious. We agree. It was near the bath/shower house and was close to the path to the river. We will come again. Most everyone was friendly, no rif-raf. Great family camping! Finally a place in Jersey we would venture back too. - Rkidsluvcamping

This is one of our favorite campgrounds. It sit on the Delaware river. It might be a little tight with a big trailer 40'. We had a 21' fifth wheel toy hauler and had no problems. We had site 15 which is a huge site and we parked 2 RV's on it. Site 44 is also another nice site. - Jodee

This place was excellent! Level sites, mostly quiet. Sandwiched between the DNR canal and the Delaware River. The bathrooms were very clean and the showers had loads of pressure and space. Plenty of cheap firewood for sale around the park. Frenchtown is nearby with some great shops and places to eat. We will be going back in September for another kayaking trip. - kleoette
