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.

This park is a mobile home park with a few RV sites. Most of the mobile homes are dated and many are in disrepair. The interior roads are in bad shape with many potholes. I called the office twice and got the answering machine both times. While check-in was OK, I returned to the office with a question and although the open sign was displayed and the lights were on, no one answered my knocks on the locked door. The utilities worked well, although the wifi is $14.95 per week. This is the only park that I've visited where I felt the need to lock my storage compartments when I left for the day. If I were to return to Natchez, I would likely find another park, perhaps the one across the river in Vidalia, LA.

The rate shown is a 50% discount available Sun - Thur. The park is a fish camp with RV sites. There are several large ponds for fishing. The sites surround the ponds. Our site was a back-in with concrete pad. The park roads are gravel. The utilities worked well, but the sewer connection is at the far rear of the site, requiring a long hose. Also, the sewer pipe protrudes from the ground creating an up hill run at the end of the line. The entrance road has several large ruts and potholes, go slow. The route from I-49 is twisty and a bit rough.

This is a small park on Grand Isle. The whole park consists of a lot within a residential/commercial area. All sites are on concrete pads. The parking lot which the sites surround is comprised of gravel and broken shells. The office/owners residence sits atop the laundry facility. The laundry facility is available to the public. The rate shown reflects an Escapee discount. I'd have rated this campground higher but the wifi is non-existent. A router in the owners kitchen qualifies for their claimed wifi. There is no cable TV, although we did get a good Direct TV signal with our dish. And, there are no breakers on the site power connection.

Hollywood Casino RV Park is about the best park in the vicinity of Bay St. Louis. The area overall appears to be depressed due to damages from hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The RV park itself is very nice with concrete pads, good paved roads with plenty of room for parking etc. All utilities worked as expected and were placed well. The sites offer a good amount of space between each other. Landscaping is grass and the occasional tree. Cable TV is included as is electric. Wifi is advertised, although it was often unavailable. There is no on-site staff although maintenance personnel pick up trash daily and perform lawn care as required. A shuttle is provided for transportation to the casino although it is just a short walk from the RV park. We were assigned site 8 and a nearby two story electrical building produced a loud hum continuously. Bay St. Louis is an hour's drive from New Orleans, so it's location was advantageous for taking in the sights and the French Quarter. While I would likely stay at the Hollywood Casino RV Park again, I would probably not visit Bay St. Louis again.

Rainbow Plantation is an Escapees Park. The rate reflects the membership discount and the weekly rate. The park is very friendly. All utilities operate as expected and are well placed, although the sewer in at the rear of the site, so a long sewer line is needed. Sites are on grass and are relatively level. The park offers many planned activities. Wifi is offered thru Tangonet.

This was my second stay at A Big Wheel RV Park. I stayed three months at a monthly rate of $375 plus electric. The owner makes you feel like a member of the family with a Sunday night pot luck dinner and games nights on Tues and Thurs. The park is usually very busy in the winter, so make your reservations early. Our site was a back-in, although most sites are pull-thrus. All sites are on concrete pads with a patio and picnic table. The park is well landscaped with abundant trees and bushes, although there is plenty of room for parking etc., and even though I was in the back of the park, I still had a clear view for Direct TV. All of the utilities worked as expected and were well placed. Wifi is offered and was available with a strong signal. A Big Wheel RV Park offers a true sense of community without being pushy, something that is sometimes missing in RV parks these days. St. Marys offers plenty of nearby shopping and diversified entertainment and cultural opportunities. I will definitely stay at A Big Wheel again.

This was my second visit to Capital City RV Park. This time we choose a premium site at $150 per week. Full hook-up, wide and long gravel site with cement patio and metal patio table. Shrubs separated out site from our neighbors. Plenty of room for parking. Very comfortable site. The owner led us to our site upon our arrival. As always, he was friendly and concerned that our stay was excellent. He told us that he expected to have satellite tv installed the next week. We had a good open sky for our direct tv. The location is excellent for all Montgomery sites. Easy to get to/from. The only place I'll stay in Montgomery.

This is a nice campground. The sites are very large and well laid out. We had a pull thru which accommodated our 40' fifth wheel and truck without unhooking. There was also an additional area within the site where we could have parked if we chose to unhook. The utilities worked well. The sewer connection is near the rear of the site and above a curb, so some method of raising the hose is necessary. Upon entrance to the park the sign instructed us to pick any empty site and complete the registration available from the self service kiosk. After selecting an open site we were berated by the camp host for not stopping at their site first. After we explained that we followed the signed instructions, the host put duct tape over the instructions. Be sure to stop by the host's site before selecting a site.

Camping available to Elks members and their guests only. This is one of the best Elks Lodge RV parks where we have stayed. I would have rated it higher if the WIFI worked, however, it was useless. Sites are gravel with paved patio area. Friendly, active lodge. Monthly rates available. We would stay here again.
