On this episode of Campground of the Week, we have a review of Timberlane Campground which is the closest campground to Philadelphia. Located in Clarksboro, New Jersey, this is what we like to call a base camp: a great place to park your rig or pitch your tent when exploring an urban destination.
Timberlane is a private, family-owned campground and offers a surprising amount of natural beauty considering its proximity to the City of Brotherly Love. The amenities are not fancy, and some things could use updating, but they are sufficient for relaxing after a long day of enjoying the food and historical sites that Philadelphia has in spades.
Listen to hear Keith and Tia talk about booking, prices, and the dreaded kid tax. Plus they describe the various sites available–pull thrus, back ins, and options for big rigs.
Then onto the important things, like exploring one of the greatest cities in this country. Philadelphia is an amazing travel destination, and you will have to decide between all the different regional offerings. Some of the attractions mentioned in this episode include:
- Independence National Historical Park
- Penns Landing
- National Constitutional Center
- Valley Forge
- Philadelphia Zoo
- Franklin Institute
- Please Touch Museum
- Sesame Place
And of course we talk cheesesteaks. There is a heated discussion of the following popular options:
If you are driving north toward popular New England destinations, you may want to consider stopping over for a couple of days in Philadelphia. The history, walkability, and thriving culinary scene make this a fun and vibrant urban destination.
So book your reservations at Timberlane Campground, and then decide…wit’ wiz or witout?
