Very nicely maintained facility with a railroad (PRR) motif (the office/store has trains on display as well). Gravel roads and sites, with fairly level sites (campground is on a gentle downhill slope). Campground abuts a private lane with several houses, and is located about 300 yards off of Plank Road (major 4 lane road between Altoona and Hollidaysburg), road noise is minimal. Owners live on-site and will assist in pulling in (sites are tight, and the owners know where the wells/sewer lines are so they can guide you as to what grass [yes, there's actually grass] you an drive on). Laundry available, although we did not use it ($1.25 per machine). The owners host monthly socials (we were a week late for the May event), check their website. We stayed during Memorial Day weekend (5/25 through 5/30) in a 32' Class A with a 14' toad w/tow dolly and everything fit easily on the site (we did disconnect the toad at the WalMart/Sams just up the road before arrival). We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Wright's Orchard Station Campground in a Motorhome.
Campground is located within walking distance to a WalMart/Sams, a Primanti Brothers, and within a short drive of other restaurants/stores (I recommend the Prime Sirlion Buffet [~1.5 miles] for an AYCE breakfast buffet on the weekends [Fri - Sun]). Easy access to/from I-99 via Plank Road. The Logan Valley Mall is right at the I-99 exit. Not too far away from the Benzel's Pretzel factory store, the Boyer Candy [Mallo Cup] factory store, world famous Horseshoe Curve, Railroader's Memorial Museum, Altoona Curve stadium (minor league baseball), Lakemont Park, and a short [~ 1 hour] ride to the Flight 93 National Memorial.
