Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park, Eureka, Missouri

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed with a large church group - about 90 middle schoolers and adults. Nightly rate I mentioned is not accurate since it was a group event. The park was great! Staff were attentive, helpful, and a pleasure to work with! Everyone was friendly, and made our stay an absolute pleasure! It's about 1/2 mile from Six Flags and a short drive into town for other attractions.

Now - the bad... actual sites for campers are very small and close together. They do however help with backing in so you don't have to struggle. No grass to speak of and after a rain, mud and dirt were tracked everywhere. If I had been there with our travel trailer, I'd have been spending all my time sweeping and mopping.

The park has a fabulous pool, great shop, and the cabins were immaculate... simple, but clean. Again, I can't say enough about the staff. They are genuinely there to make your stay great. I wouldn't hesitate to go back, but would prefer to stay in a cabin rather than deal with the hassle of cleaning up myself.

If you're approaching from the north, don't rely on GPS. You get taken through a very narrow, hilly, and winding road. Look at a map and take a few extra miles to stay on the interstate highway. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Cabin.

Walmart is 2 minutes away and a few miles down the interstate are MANY restaurants, grocery stores, and other resources. 18 minutes from Costco.

Pleasant Creek State Recreation Area, Palo, Iowa

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $16.00
Overall Rating:

The park itself was nice and overall the stay was good. Inconsiderate campers with dogs off-leash ruined it for us. We keep our dog on a cable at all times and others let their dogs run loose. DNR comes by and warns them but takes no action and when dogs ARE on a leash, they're dragging it behind them with nobody holding it. Ridiculous that people can't follow rules and DNR is either powerless or unwilling to enforce them.

Overall, the park is clean. It should be noted that the lake has been temporarily drained to complete work on the shoreline.

We stayed on Memorial Day weekend and although there were many campers, and all sites were taken, it didn't feel overcrowded. Sites are relatively spacious and the condition of the sites was good - grass was lush and healthy so no muddy footprints in the camper. We camped at Pleasant Creek State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Wilson Island Recreation Area, Missouri Valley, Iowa

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $16.00
Overall Rating:

Not much to do in the park. If you're looking for a one nighter or a base of operations, it's okay. Firewood is available but wet and rotten. Last night's first log still sits in the fire ring charred from the charcoal lighter we used to try and get it lit. River is dirty with lots of stuff floating in the water. Standing water everywhere so mosquitoes are truly a nightmare! 8pm and it was like a horror movie as the swarm descended. Can't sit outside even when covered in DEET and a smoldering fire going. I think they take it as a challenge.

Even after saying hello, we were ignored by the hosts.

The pads are level and electricity is close. Only a little shade from storm damaged trees. Grass is certainly still recovering from flooding. It's a somewhat pretty park from the inside of your RV, with spacious sites, but don't expect much for family or other outdoor activities. We camped at Wilson Island Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

We won't be staying the durarion of our reservation since it's a pretty sparse park for activities. Used it as a base for activities in the city but will be moving on mid-week.

Great park. Nice hiking trails. Our site had a nice gravel pad, but needed to use several blocks to level. We camped at Backbone State Park in a Travel Trailer.
