This is a gem of a facility in an area where there is much to do, but no CGs.

When I discovered this place in my research, I called and like our check in, the owner / staff were very helpful.

The only problem is the place is very small and is not designed for big rigs. Our 37' A is probably the limit and there are only 2 to 4 sites that might accommodate you. It's a tight turn past the storage facility up the hill from the office. No toads.

We had site #2. Not much room but it was dead level. Good utilities and cable.

This CG is very well suited for C, B and TT units. Smaller 5'vrs but not the big units.

The access is hidden / shares a drive with a storage facility (their business too) and a car wash. It's at red light which is valuable in this traffic corridor. We camped at Wright's Orchard Station Campground in a Motorhome.

Very tight layout of the park. If you need to unhook tow vehicle, do it before entering campground near storage units. Lady in the office never suggested it. Hilly park. Probably wouldn't stay here again. We camped at Wright's Orchard Station Campground in a Motorhome.

Quaint and well groomed RV park. Everyone including owners were very hospitable. Nice model train museum in the office. Wi-Fi was speedy and spot on. Every type of shopping was available, Field and Stream, Walmart, Target, Sally's Beauty, to name only a few. No problem leveling our trailer with levelers we always carry. We camped at Wright's Orchard Station Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We've been in better parks but also worse. It is close to interstate 99 and served our purpose for a weekend. The staff and owner were friendly and accommodating. My largest complaint is there are very few level sites. With some effort, this could be corrected. We camped at Wright's Orchard Station Campground in a Motorhome.

Small campground close to everything. CG is behind a self storage area on a narrow, dusty gravel road. The CG is the only acceptable CG in the Altoona area.
Most sites are NOT level. Wi-fi works but signal is weak. Cable is available and provides analog and digital channels. Satellite signal can be received in lower numbered sites that aren't blocked by trees. Little road noise except from the neighborhood next to the CG. We camped at Wright's Orchard Station Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Internet works great and fast from the pavilion down to the office. It will fade as you go uphill. Yes, the campground is up hill. Rates vary with cable, sewer etc. add on. There are a lot of seasonals. Sites are all on stone. Bring blocks and wedges. You will need them. Campground staff is friendly and welcoming.

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 camped at Wright's Orchard Station Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was well past its prime. The camping area is on a hillside, with narrow roadways and turns. The sites are small, unlevel and difficult to back into. Wi-fi was nonexistent at our site. For the price, we expected more. We would only stay here again if there were no other choices. We camped at Wright's Orchard Station Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Quiet little campground right in town. Most sites are back-in, but there is a short row of pull-throughs in the center (these have 30 amp service). Sites are level, some are best for smaller vehicles. Lots of trees provide nice shade. A small camp store and a laundry room are on site. No other amenities. Restrooms very clean. Wi-Fi is good. Strong cellular coverage (AT&T, Verizon). Owners are very friendly and helpful. We would stay here again. We camped at Wright's Orchard Station Campground in a Motorhome.

Clean baths, and our site was level. But this camp is up a hill, behind businesses, and it seems more of a trailer park than a campground; lots of permanent residents. We camped at Wright's Orchard Station Campground in a Motorhome.

A beautiful, funky surprise of a campground, secluded between a residential neighborhood and self storage units, and a steep hill behind the campground. GPS is 40.45240 and 78.41200. You take I-99 (what genius numbered this interstate?) at Exit 31 and go one mile south of the interchange on Plank Road in Altoona. When you get to Convention Center Road, turn right (which is west on a GPS), go between the self store building and (get this) a car AND dog wash, bear right and up the gravel drive, and look for the rail crossing sign on a fence. You've arrived. Campground has a railroad theme. No campsite is perfectly level, but you can get your RV leveled on the gravel/grassy pads. Water and electric worked fine. Five bar AT&T service. Bathrooms indescribably clean. Great showers. Dump station a bit higher than your RV, so I had to manually elevate the hose in order to get gravity to activate. Owners were friendly and cheerful, check-in efficient. Fantastic wi-fi service. Picnic pavilion was available. Not the place to bring kids, nothing for children to do. Ask owners about rail history around Altoona; they are knowledgeable about local history spots. We would intentionally route through this area again to camp here overnight, even if I-99 is misnumbered! By the way, I-99 is in much better condition than I-81. We camped at Wright's Orchard Station Campground in a Travel Trailer.

A small campground tucked away behind a storage lot, but in a good location. Maneuvering into the sites is a bit tight, there's a few trees too many, and they lean over so watch the height. We were pleasantly surprised by how nice it was, with really excellent Wi-Fi and immaculate bath-house. Cable TV was a bonus too. It's quiet and ideal for mature campers like us! Nothing for kids to do, so take them to the excellent Altoona Railroad Museum and Horseshoe Curve. We camped at Wright's Orchard Station Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed for three days and two nights. The purpose of this trip was to go to Lakemont Amusement Park and to an Altoona Curve ball game. The campground is small, well maintained and with good customer service. The bathrooms and showers were spotless. There are no activities (pool/playground) for kids, but we had a great time and definitely will be staying here again. If you are looking for a no-frills, safe and clean campground in the Altoona area, this is the place for you. We camped at Wright's Orchard Station Campground in a Tent Trailer.

With a pool and activities for kids this would be a 10. All 50 amp sites are back in; the pull thrus are 30 amp; lots of trees on the side of a hill. To access the campground the entrance looks like you are going into another type of business and not a campground. You drive past self storage units, up a narrow gravel road ,make a sharp turn at the top, and you are in front of the office. All in all, quiet clean and relaxing place.

Basic facts don't tell the whole story. PULL THROUGH SITES AVAILABLE: YES. (If you have a car with tent in trunk or a small van. Everything else is back in.) 50 AMP SERVICE: YES. (If you are one of 4 seasonal, all other sites are 30.) SEWAGE HOOKUP: YES. (Again if you are one of the seasonals. Otherwise you have to use the dump station which is on a one lane road so if you stop to dump you completely block the road.) BIG RIG ACCESS: YES. (But only if you are really really good at backing.) I changed some of the "yes" answers to "no." Must be the owner filled out the last one. Would I return? Never. Would I recommend this site? Never. We camped at Wright's Orchard Station Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
