“Good for an overnight stop”

We stopped here to break up our drive to Philadelphia. There was plenty of space available in that truck and RV area. We were the only RV in the midst of several big rigs. The lot is pretty sloped but we found a spot even enough to make it work. We did see a large grass field for more RV parking but it was much too muddy to drive into it after all the rain.

Quiet enough and cell good service. It’s only about 15-20 mins from Swatara State Park, which had some nice hikes.

“Convenient and free”

Reviewed Nov 27, 2017

Overall Rating

It's the fact that trucks also use this free place and therefore there is the noise of their engines and the fact that the area is mostly sloped that prevents me from giving this place 5 stars.

To begin with it's convenient to I-81 (and pretty close to where I-78 becomes 81). There is a huge casino on site where there are a number of restaurants. Being vegan I don't expect a lot of options on the road but the hummus and green salad I had for dinner at the Sky Bar there was plenty. Of course, if you want to try your hand at the casino there are plenty of options.

The parking for trucks and RV's is set off to the side of the casino complex. There are a number of spaces there that are flat, however when we arrived someone with a fifth wheel in tow had parked in all of them rather than in one of the slots. (Don't do that it's really not considerate.) There is a grassy area to the left of the paved parking that allows overflow and if it is dry that is an option as it is also flat. We didn't see it because we came in after dark. Otherwise the area is paved about halfway up the "hill" and then gravel. There is PLENTY of room so I would not hesitate to plan to stop at any hour.

Getting there: When you drive in the entrance to the casino turn left at the first stop sign and follow that road around until you see the one saying Truck and RV parking then turn left. When you leave you can either go back the way you came in or continue up the hill at the parking and turn left on Mountain Rd which will take you back out to 81.

Bonus: they have horse racing there and the parking is right beside the barns where they warm up the horses and not too long a walk to the track where you can watch the trainers working with them.
