Campus Park and Ride® is an 11 acre urban RV parking facility with 24 hour transportation making the city of Philadelphia your campground. Campus Park and Ride® is the only year round RV parking facility within 30 miles of Philadelphia offering a clean, level, paved lot
When you want to go to Philadelphia and camp close by the historical sites, this is about your only option. It is literally a parking lot enclosed with chain link in the middle of the city.
Campus Park and Ride is a fenced/gated lot that adjoins a US Customs building.. There is water and electric connections plus a dump station.(I use that term very loosely) There is a pvc tube running by wall of building with no hose or anyway to clean out your tube. It wasn't capable of holding much because it backed up quickly…GROSS!
There is a bath house/trailer and office on site. No one was ever in the office while we were there. The shuttle bus driver had to let us in and out as well as take our info & credit card info on a form to leave on the desk.
At $49 per night, this camping was a little pricey. Strangely enough, as urban as this was… I felt safe.
The best part about this campground was the people we met camping next to us. They were helpful in getting us to our site-seeing destinations by way of bus instructions and even gave us tokens to ride. On the other side of us were vendors from Comic-Con that was in town that weekend. They gave us free entry tickets. Awesomeness for the teenagers who wanted to roam.
No designated check-out time meant a full day in Philly. We headed to Independence Square by way of the free shuttle and a city bus. Touring Independence Hall, seeing the Liberty Bell, going to China Town and eating a Philly Cheese Steak were our objectives. DONE!
