This is a pretty nice park, clean and neat with good hookups. The roads and sites are stone, and level, and each has a wood deck. They advertise Wi-Fi but it went out a while ago and apparently there are no plans to repair it, so if you depend on internet access for banking, etc., you'd better bring your own with you. There are no pull-through sites for overnight stays, and this is more of a long-term park. There is a "clubhouse" available, which is actually a small ranch style home with a couple of washing machines and a single bath tub and toilet, but no shower facilities. This is a pretty nice park, but would get a much higher rating if they had Wi-Fi, cable TV, and a restroom/shower building. - wetsuitwarrier
Most of the shortcomings that had existed have been eliminated by the new resident manager who answers the phone and is present almost all the time. He is exceptionally helpful and motivated. This has always been one of the most pleasing physical campgrounds with lots of room, established sod everywhere, level concrete pads and streets, excellent hookups, and a choice of shady or open sites. The WiFi has been improved and upgraded, so that it now works; it's good, not great. Propane is available. - MSTraveler
I must say the previous post almost scared us away from this gem in the country. Yes, I will agree the person answering the phone needs to keep it on their person but she was very friendly and helpful and accurate with directions to the park.This resort once the new expressway gets finished will be very convenient. The park is immaculately kept. Sites are spacious and all utilities are up to par. If they proceed with future planning this will be an exceptional resort. As for fire rings and picnic tables I believe it would take away from the looks. I would definitely come back for a longer stay. The rate reflects a Passport America and Good Sam discount. - Colette
This is an exceptionally nice park that has concrete roads and pads with lots of trees and wide spaces in a park-like setting. It's not like most campgrounds which are lined up in a row, close together. Verizon cell worked great. The park's Wi-Fi was Ok; the owner's has plans to upgrade it. We planned to stay for 6 weeks and ended up staying 3 1/2 months and plan to return next winter. This park is so quiet and peaceful, we really didn't want to leave at all. It's a short drive to Foley or Fairhope where there are lots of stores and restaurants. It's a new park with one section done and two sections to be finished. This park is a work in progress that is very nice now and will be great when done. - Tim M.
Rate reflects Escapee membership. This is a typical Escapee park, management is shaky at best but there seems to be a lot of it. This is a park with a mixture of stick houses and RV's. Park is kept clean by the workers; they have a very nice little memorial garden to Escapees who have passed on. Events are planned regularly and the club house is very nice. Most people here are long term residents. They do have both a storage area as well as a 'dry camp' area. Utilities work well and are steady. Water pressure is good. Washer room appeared clean. New reservation system seems to continue to elude office staff. You are not "guaranteed" a specific site, but if you want to extend your visit, you may be moved to another spot because someone has your site reserved. That sounds pretty site specific for some. Spaces are grass and dirt. Lots of shade trees. No train noise, some road noise but not at all disturbing. Speed limit in the park is a suggestion only, most residents completely ignore it and speeds can reach dangerous levels if you happen to be out walking and not paying very close attention. There are both the ERPU leased lots here as well as "yearly leased" lots which are leased at a significantly different rate than the ERPU's. There was one space in the RV section with 2 RV's on it which we found odd. Most of the resident lots are kept clean and neat. Lot of things to see and do within the area. 30 min from Gulf Shores, Mobile, and only about 45 minutes to the Naval Air Museum in Pensacola. - Fixn2gocamp
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. - 15243
A pleasant Escapees park at a low nightly rate for five nights. FHU on dirt and grass under an oak tree that dropped acorns on the roof at night. No cable, but good OTA and good Verizon cell/MiFi coverage. - Dave51
