Campground Review: Fla-Net Campground
As we began to plan our trip toward Maine for our workamping job, we realized we might have to look a bit harder than we initially thought we would. We found out that several campgrounds in the Northeast don't open until May 1st and even some until Memorial Day. This makes the ones that are open, a very popular destination for local weekend campers. So when we came across Fla-Net Park Campground open year around about halfway between Phoenixville, PA and our next destination in Connecticut, we booked two nights. Since our stay was short, its location close to I-80 worked well for us.
Fla-Net Park Camgpround does provide a fairly rustic feel considering its proximity to New York City (about 45 miles). It certainly isn’t rural, but trees, ponds, and gravel roads give you a bit of that traditional camping feeling. However if you are more into urban camping, never fear you can walk to two restaurants that are just beyond the campground (Macaroni Grill & Chilis) and several retail stores are less than a mile away! The road leading up to our site was a bit tight, but nothing careful driving and good mirrors couldn’t combat. The sites were pretty close together, but considering all three of our vehicles fit on the site, they were a decent size.
The bath houses left a bit to be desired. The wifi was decent during our stay and the site was somewhat satellite friendly. The pool was not open yet for the season. It appeared to be a small round cinderblock pool. There was a tetherball pole & playground.
Fla-Net Park Campground was certainly nothing flashy, including their hand drawn map. We wouldn’t choose to stay at this campground long term, but it did the trick for a place to stay for a couple nights on our journey North.
