Rainbow Plantation is an Escapee Park. The sites are all back-in on level grass or sand and very spacious. Roads are paved and there is plenty of room to navigate into sites. Utilities work well although only half of the 97 sites offer 50 amp elec. No cable TV is offered and internet is thru Tengonet. I found the internet to be useless. I was not able to get a signal in the trailer. I did get a good signal from Dish Network. As with all Escapee parks, there is plenty to do with many planned activities and functions. This is my third visit to Rainbow Plantation, but I doubt I will return due to the sandy/no grass sites. For my future visits to Lower Alabama I'll look for campgrounds with better sites.

This is one of the best state parks that we have visited. We had our pick of sites and chose one that backed up to the lake. Beautiful site and surroundings. There were few neighbors in November. Site and roads are paved and well maintained. Utilities worked well, as expected. Good Verizon and excellent Direct TV. This was our second stay and we would certainly consider spending a month or more during the winter months in the future.

The Cape Girardeau Elks lodge has a campground with 11 full hook-up sites. Six sites back-up to their private lake. The campground area is quiet and situated in a partially wooded setting. The lodge is very active and has a popular club room. The lodge is located just off I-55 at Exit 99.

Nice park. Friendly and helpful staff. Long pull thrus. Full hook-ups including cable TV. Great wifi. Good location to visit Shiloh NMP. This is my second visit and I will certainly return.

This park is closed for the season and will not reopen in 2016. The owners plan to remove the park facilities put the land up for sale.

This is a great state park. VERY family orientated. Nearby CCC constructed Lodge offers bar and restaurant services. Campground is adjacent to the Great River Road bike path. Close to Grafton wineries & tourist activities and ferry to Calhoun County, IL - go for lunch. Park also offers hiking trails, horseback riding in season and marina on IL river. Half of sites may be reserved, other half first come, first served. But, if you want a weekend site, get there by early afternoon on Friday or you're out of luck. Go and enjoy the experience.

We camped in the Northwest Camping area - all 30/50a elec, water and sewer. All utilities at rear of site. Sites are gravel and grass. Great free wifi. Most sites are open, but some have limited shade. Nearby active railroad. Close to RV service centers and manufacturers and Amish culture. Staff is very helpful - extensive local info with maps provided at check-in.

Small basic campground. Twenty sites on gravel, but realy only seven or eight rigs would fit comfortably. There is a full time host. Good utilities and easy in and out for big rigs. Easy access from US-127. A hidden gem. I'd certainly return.

To me this is almost the perfect campground. It's no frills sites on grass with full hookup. I'd have rated it higher, but the water pressure is poor. I used my on board tank and water pump while staying there. It's location is great - close to Martinsburg, Antietim Battlefield, Manassas Battlefield, Harper's Ferry, Shephardstown and an easy day trip to Gettysburg. Easy access to I-81. I'd certainly return if in the area again.

If you want a resort campground with lots of activities, golf carts and Sat night bands, this is for you. I'd have just as soon been in a trailer park. But, we needed a full hook-up site for our two week stay and they are few and far between in this area. I thought the cost was excessive especially for a site that slopped down both sideways and front to back. Many motor homes had their front wheel off the ground. Most other site areas are level, but the Resort East Pull Thrus are not even close. The utilities worked well and even the wifi was usefull in the early AM. Busy on weekends. Watch for small blue signs between I-81 and campground on PA 443. the entrance is easy to miss.

This is one of the best parks I've found. As full-timers we don't need a lot of activitities for the kids or a flashy resort. This campgound is relatively small, but I had no problem getting my 40' fifth wheel in or out of a space. The owners who live onsite could not have been nicer. All the utilities worked well. The sewer hookup was simple and ran directly from my trailer to the inlet. Perhaps some campers need to familiarize themselves with donuts and other new fangled sewer components. I would have rated the campground a 10, but the advertised wifi was useless. Although, I have come to expect useless wifi from campgrounds. The campgournd is an easy on/off from I-99. Shopping is almost at your doorstep. Easy access to Altoona, Johnstown & State College. I would definetely return to Wrights Orchard Station if ever in the area again.

We didn't notice any of the ruts as mentioned in other reviews. There are two speed bumps, one on the entrance road and one at the entrance to the transient camp area. Neither are unusual. Our site was very nice with plenty of room. It slopped back to front and right to left, but we were able to level with out too much effort. Good cable TV. Bad WiFi. Given the overall lack of full hook-up sites in the general area, this campground is a gem. We would return if in the area.

Red Barn has a few monthly sites available at $440 plus metered electric. These sites are at the front of the park, so the road noise is constant. The pull-thrus are shorter and more narrow than the daily area and the sites are closer together. The park no longer offers WiFi. The park is a little tight for big rigs, but it is manageable. Given its location and general lack of other monthly sites in the area, the Red Barn is a good choice. But, call early to reserve. Cash or checks only. The owners are nice people, very friendly and helpful.

This is a great casino RV park. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The check-in was fast and easy. The sites are all long pull thru's, although a bit narrow. The utilities are well placed and worked well, including the wifi and cable tv. The park is located just a few miles from the Vicksburg Military Park and just down the road from the visitors center. I would definitely return to Ameristar Casino RV Park .

This is a great park, one of the best ever. Most sites are wide pull-thurs with plenty of room for our trailer and truck. All of the utilities worked well, including the wifi, and were well placed. Sites are spacious with grass, a patio and picnic table. There are two pools, one for adults only with a hot tub. The fitness facility is awesome with three treadmills, two elliptical, free weights and a multiple position weight machine. Everything was well taken care of including daily trash pick-up at the site. The only quirk was that they ask you not to put hoses or wires on the grass. I suspect this request is for lawn care.
