This is a no frills park. No staff. Register at Antique Mall Depot in Whistle Stop Antique Mall. Sites are all asphalt and level. All sites have full hook-up. There was only one trailer here when we were here for 5 days. Right on Georgia Rd. in Franklin. Very convenient. Easy in and out. Convenient to restaurants and shopping. We will stay here again.

We are Escapees members and often travel this way going to Kentucky. Invariably we have very little success staying at this park. When we are able to get into a site it is usually a 30 amp site. While this is OK during the fall and winter it is difficult in the summer. There are always lots of "permanent" looking rigs in the park. Relatively no or very few improvements to this park in all the years we have stopped here. We, on several occasions, have had to stay down the road at another park. The staff at the Escapees park told us this time that if we could back our rig and we arrived before dark then we could go into dry camp area.

We have stayed here several times and we appreciate the helpful attitude and friendliness of the owner/staff of this park. The park has quite a few "permanent" residents but we have always been able to get a site...some have been back-in and some pull-through. There are a lot of trees which can make it tricky to park and sometimes difficult for a roof mounted satellite. We had a very helpful staff help us navigate into the site. Very helpful!! There is a wonderful cable TV system and the Wi-Fi is adequate (depending on how many users at any given time). It is provided free by the park so no complaints from us. This park accepts Passport America which certainly helps in this day and time. We appreciate the consideration. We would recommend this park and will call ahead to stay again.

Nice, quiet and friendly campground. We are fulltime and this was as nice a campground as we have visited. We felt very safe at this campground. We visited some of the others in the area while we were there...this is by far the one we will visit again. Nice pull through sites. Well designed and maintained park. Cost is high (we felt) even with a weekly rate so you will just have to evaluate whether the advantages balance out the higher cost. Park is convenient to interstate and once you know where it is it's easy to get into and out of from the Interstate and other highways.

This is an excellent park for an overnight stop. It is conveniently located just 1.7 miles off I-20. There is a real lack of RV parks off I-85 and I-20 from Montgomery through Atlanta and east to Columbia. This park was easy to get into and the sites were fairly level and long. We camped here in a 40' Motorhome with a tow car. The campground had excellent 50 amp power, water and sewer. Friendly folks and while this is not a resort it had a nice pool and was very convenient for us. We were led to our site to make sure everything was good for us and that we were able to go straight to our site.

One of the friendliest campgrounds we've visited across the country (and we are fulltimers). Worse right now because of construction at I 65. The campground is owned, managed and maintained by a family who do so with care. We appreciated their friendliness and welcoming spirit. The campground is conveniently located off I 65 at exit 168 just across the road from a TA Travel Center. The only drawback here is that it takes patience to get back across the highway if you are going to go onto I 65. The park has large pull through sites that are graveled and pretty level. We had quite a bit of rain so water was standing in spots. The WiFi service was wonderful. Cable TV with great stations. Nice park. We will definitely be back. Would recommend to all.

This was a very convenient park. Easy on and off from I-65. The park no longer accepts Passport America. Though the park was supposed to have Wi-Fi, we had no signal. Nice long pull throughs gravel and level. Clean little park. The owner operator was very friendly. We would recommend the park and would stop again if in the area.

This park provides easy access from I-65 and has nice pull through sites which are gravel and level. The park is well maintained and looks very appealing. Our only complaint was that there was essentially no Wi-Fi even though the park said this was available. The 30.80 was after application of discounts. This was high we felt. We were also blocked somehow and could not get our dome satellite to receive a signal. The park had an excellent cable system, however.

We stopped for 3 nights in the rainy season so it rained all three days over the weekend. The sites are long. There are pull throughs that are elevated and long enough for the bigger rigs. The owner was very friendly and helpful. There are lots of trees in this park so we had difficulty getting satellite with our dome. We fortunately had a portable dish. The exit back onto I30 going toward Missouri is directly across from JB Baxley Rd and the entrance to the park. You just pull across 69 and onto the entrance ramp. This is not marked so can be tricky. We would certainly stop here again. No WiFi and no cable.

Good Escapees Park. Sites are small. Even though they offer a weekly rate if you have a 40 ft. or more and you can not fit on one of the smaller back in sites you will have to pay the higher daily rate. Great staff and we enjoyed the meals and entertainment that staff arranged to come into the clubhouse. The tickets for the shows that you can order with a discount rate were wonderful. They were delivered to us at the park. All of the seats were excellent. This park is conveniently located to Branson yet out of the hustle and bustle. Just a note that the nearby College of the Ozarks has a restaurant in the Keeter Center that is staffed by students and has absolutely wonderful meals.

We have stayed at this park several times before. We got reservations in advance.There were no 50 amp sites available. The office staff were very friendly and helpful. The park is convenient to the Vicksburg Military Park, the casinos and their buffets. In fact, you will receive free breakfast vouchers for 2 at the Ameristar Heritage Buffet. These were very nice. Our trip was marred because of an accident while we were there. One of the employees of the contracted lawn service ran into the side of our Motorhome with one of the large commercial mowers and we sustained considerable damage. We are in the process of getting estimates. So far over $3000 plus other expenses. As we live fulltime in our Motorhome this poses some very difficult logistal problems for us. Quite an inconvenience. Could have all be avoided with the exercise of due care by the lawn care crew!!!

We had several conversations over a month or so with managers at this park. We made reservations as we were looking for a months stay due to medical appointments in the area. We drove for several hours and arrived as scheduled. When we arrived the person who greeted us acted surprised to see us and advised that they had had "a lot of people come in" and didn't have too many options for us. We could park in an overflow site which was located in one of the gravel roads. As we were leaving, we saw a long pull thru site that would have certainly accommodated us. The other sites were small and not acceptable for our 40 foot Motorhome. The prices changed a couple of times during our discussions with park personnel, always a little more each time. The prices quoted included cable but neither of the sites we were shown had cable connections. We ended up leaving and driving to another town to find a site. This park is crowded and sites are small. Many of the rigs are very old and look like many long term renters. We would not stay in this park nor would we recommend it. If you plan to stay apparently you will need to have your reservations in writing.

We have stayed here several times before and will stay here again in the future. The park is convenient to I20 and US 45. Clean park with gravel roadway and cement pads. Owners are very friendly and have been very welcoming each time we have called. We used Passport America and asked for this consideration when we called for reservation. We would recommend this park to all and wish the owners well during these stressful economic times.

We stayed at the park for two months visiting with family in the area. We have stayed at the Barnyard over the past several years and have always found the staff to be very friendly and the service excellent. The park is conveniently located to everything in Lexington/Columbia. We would recommend the park to anyone wishing to visit the area. The sites are long and convenient pull-throughs!! We look forward to our next visit!

Nice Park. Friendly owner/operators. We had a problem finding the park originally and ended up in a neighborhood with a very difficult time getting out. When you come to this really nice park just be cautious, and follow directions exactly. Get off I-26, go north on 221. Trust us! Once you arrive at the campground it is a nice park that will make you want to stay around!!

We stayed one week on 50 amp site for $181+. The site was a pull in and back out, but not that difficult to maneuver. Wooden patio. Hookups were convenient. WiFi did not work. It connected and disconnected immediately. Speed bumps are always too much. We appreciated that the Gray Line tours served this park and the park personnel made our reservations for us. Very helpful and courteous staff at the park. We also filled up with propane and it was very convenient. Price was comparable with Flying J propane prices and more convenient. We would recommend this park.

This park is very nice. Staff very friendly and courteous. We stayed one night at Escapees rate and 3 nights on Passport America rate of $13.50. Very helpful in light of diesel costs these days. We were on site 22 up front. Very convenient pull through. WiFi was very fast. We appreciated this park and would definitely recommend it to others!

We arrived on Saturday afternoon after having called ahead for a reservation. No one was in the office (not that we knew where the office was in the park). Previous reviews we had read told us about the narrow roadway so we were not surprised. We drove in and stopped to call the office on our cell phone. All we got was an answering machine. Another camper came out and suggested an area where we could park. We proceeded up another hill and found a large area with side by side sites. It was open and we proceeded to get set up. Later in the day I called the office again and found the manager in. I went into the office and discovered that in fact the manager had set a cone with our name on it in a site where we could have parked. She was fine with us where we were parked and we stayed for two nights. A very nice park, very quiet even though Highway 100 was right behind us. We would highly recommend the park and we will definitely stay again if in that area. Easy turn off from Interstate 20 and located less than a mile north.

This park would not be a bad overnight stopover BUT the road leading into the park was covered with HUGE potholes which were filled with water following rains. We entered VERY slowly but still the holes were so horrible that we broke a connector on our hot water heater because of the rocking of the coach in the holes. There was no one there the 3 nights we stayed (no staff - no owner - no workkampers). We left our money in an envelope. There were many other available sites other than the main row we stayed on but (as we understand it) the water had frozen over the winter and they had never been repaired soooo no water on any of those sites. We learned from another camper there that if we went out the "back" way we could avoid the potholes which we did when we left.

We appreciated most the courteous welcome of the owners and staff at Cedar Rail. We were led to our site (which we appreciated). The view is wonderful and everyone there was so friendly and helpful. We stayed two weeks and now wonder why we didn't stay a month. This park is right up on Raton Pass, was cool and the view is awesome. We look forward to being able to go back again!!

I concur with previous reviews. Very unfriendly owners. Same experience with Shaun leading us to site. Didn't say a word...Just got on cart and drove away. Power in park low even though 50 amp. Noise from Wal-Mart parked trucks and reefers. Most notable was the lack of courtesy and borderline rudeness of staff (owners). Her only comment to us about the Escapees offered discount was that she hoped they wouldn't continue to accept this much longer. Soooooo...maybe Escapees need to consider not staying at this campground. We certainly wouldn't stay again unless ownership changes. This will probably happen.
