Discover Croydon, PA
The Croydon township was originally a part of a plantation owned by the Barnsley family through several generations from late 1700s till early 1900s. Though the name of the plantation was Tatham Plantation, Major John Barnsley often referred to it as Croydon, a reference to a town in England where he was born.
On the outskirts of the Tatham plantation, Andreas Everardus van Braam Houckgeest purchased a little over 400 acres in 1797 to create what he called the China Retreat. Van Braam Houckgeest was a Dutch entrepreneur who visited China often while working for the Dutch East India Company and fell in love with the country. With a burning desire to share the country with Americans, he imported thousands of artifacts, art items, and furniture. Some of his notable guests included President George Washington and Revolutionary War hero Marquis de Lafayette. Van Braam Houckgeest exhausted his funds, sold the property, and died in obscurity. The property itself changed hands several times over the year, and in 1970s, was quietly razed to create what is now the Neshaminy State Park Marina.
Though a quiet town, Croydon’s proximity to one of the arteries into Philadelphia and the Delaware River makes it a terrific place to visit.
The closest large town is Levittown about seven miles northeast.
The Great Outdoors
Rent a camper in Croydon to escape the constraints of hotels and motels. The nearby Neshaminy State Park, which is only about 350 acres, offers a few miles of trails. Its main appeal, though, is the easy fishing and boating access to to the Delaware River. Fishermen can catch a number of warm water fish like largemouth and smallmouth bass, muskellunge, catfish, and panfish. In springs, striped bass makes it annual run down the Neshaminy Creek. Boats must have a current boat registration, and owners must obtain a launching permit. The nearby tidal marsh is also an excellent birdwatching spot, offering opportunities to photograph avians like bald eagles, owls, hawks, woodpeckers, kinglets, and several other species.
The nearby Pennypack Park and Preserve near Bryn Athyn is a local gem. The mature woods are well established and, it’s easy to overlook the fact that you’re the heart of the suburbs. Glimpse the flash of white as small herds of white-tailed deer fly past. Otters and muskrats make their dens at various points along the Pennypack Creek. The charming critters are photogenic.
Seeking solitude and true wilderness? Head out of town. French Creek State Park and the adjacent parks combined is the largest in southeastern Pennsylvania, encompassing nearly 70,000 acres. Well over 150 miles of multi-use trails gives adventurers plenty of hiking, camping, horseback riding, geocaching, and rock-climbing fun. Hunting, during the appropriate season and with permit, is allowed, as well. The fun doesn’t stop in winters. Cross-country skiing, ice skating, and fishing are all popular activities. RV-camping is permitted, too. Go “glamping” in a Croydon motorhome rental.
When renting travel trailer in Croydon, don’t forget to find a place to park overnight. This close to Philadelphia, options are limited. The KOA in West Chester may be a candidate. In addition to full hookups for your RV, it includes WiFi and has a play area for kids, and bike and canoe rentals.
Across the Delaware River, the KOA in Clarksboro, NJ, offers oversized lots able to accommodate rigs up to 73’, fishing access, a dog park, and a play area.
Exploring the City
One of the main advantages to booking an RV in Croydon is the easy access to Philadelphia. Hop onto Interstate Highway 95, and head straight into the heart of the city: Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Franklin Institute, and National Constitution Center. Imagine what it was like for the venerable founding fathers to debate the policies and laws that would eventually shape this country. Explore the historic districts, too. There are several homes dating back to early 18th and 19th centuries still standing today.
Philadelphia isn’t all about history, though. It’s also known for great art, food, and the night scene. The Philadelphia Museum of Art is home to thousands of excellent artists, including a few better-known names like Diego Rivera, Claude Monet, and Vincent Van Gogh, and there are several other smaller art galleries and museums in the area, too.
Trying a Philadelphia Cheesesteak is practically a requirement when you visit Philadelphia. The question of where to find The Steak is hotly debated by both locals and visitors alike. Among the top contenders is Jim’s Steaks, a steak shop a couple blocks south of the downtown area. Another strong contender is Pat’s King of Steaks, the owner of which claims to be the original inventor of the steak sandwich. This shop is a longer walk and may warrant grabbing a taxi.
Wrap up a long day of sightseeing and adventuring in your Croydon RV rental by knocking back a cold brew. Neshaminy Creek Brewing is an award-winning craft beer maker, pouring German-style beers and ales. Hop into your rental RV and go adventuring in this historic part of Pennsylvania!
