Experience Philadelphia with a big dose of fresh air! Just 16 miles from the city center, Ridley Creek Park Campground can offer large camping groups a rustic alternative to a hotel or a handy escape from urban life. As part of the package, you get open rolling green meadows, shady wooded areas, and miles of hiking, biking and horseback riding trails. But lest you feel you’re roughing it too hard, you can explore some of the more fancypants civilized areas like the formal gardens around the Hunting Hill Mansion. Break out the instant tea!
