We also stayed here at the end of last year's fall trip in late October. See my 10/15 review for a fuller description of the sites, facilities, and amenities. This is definitely a week or weekend get-a-way for locals during the season. Many sites are taken for the entire season. At this time of year, you press a "call button" at the gate, they respond, open the gate, and meet you at the office. The office is not staffed except when someone needs something. This year we had a back in site at the far end of the lake. Since there is no cable TV, we had requested a satellite friendly site and this site did appear to have a clear view to the south. I decided to scan for local antenna channels and was able to get over 40 Chicago area stations. I settled for using just the antenna. If you are concerned about no cable and lack of channel options, there are a lot here just with the antenna. The site had a grass/gravel entryway but the cement pad was just long enough for our wheelbase. I did need to do some leveling due to a forward to rear downward slope. Like last year, although there are still 100+ RVs in the park, less than half were occupied the night we were here. We had no problems with the Wi-Fi for our minimal ( e-mail and web surfing) needs, but that may be different in a fuller park. There are 2 bathhouses ) with a strange combination of different rooms - shower only, toilet and sink, or all three. There are also bathrooms in several other building in the park. There is a laundry (about 10 machines) in the bathhouse building closest to the entrance. The cost was only $1.50/$1.25 per machine. I saw no sign of recycling. We had little contact with the staff. I can't imagine being here in season, but, at this time of year, getting a FHU site in a nice park for just $35 is fine.

Date of Stay:

Once you get this far north in early November, it get hard to find a FHU park. This is our first time here and we had a level, gravel, pull through, FHU site in a treeless row on the southern edge of the park. As requested, our site was satellite friendly. This satellite friendly row, however, does not have cable TV. Most sites are in the trees and are gravel, pull through, FHU with 12 channel cable TV. There is also some antenna reception (their listing shows a dozen channels - some of which duplicate the network channels on the cable). There are maybe 20 back in sites, plus a dozen or so primitive tent sites and a large open area for group tent camping. There were maybe 30 RVs in the park and many of those appeared to be unoccupied the night we were here. As a result, the Wi-Fi worked fine for our minimal e-mail and web surfing needs. The main bathrooms (3 sinks, 1 urinal, 2 stalls, and 3 showers) and a laundry room with 6 machines are in the basement level of what appears to be the owner's residence. This is just passed the office, pool, mini-golf course, shuffleboard, and a fire ring at the park entrance. There is a satellite bathhouse in the middle of the park that is near the recreational (pool, playground, pavilions, a fire ring, basketball (terrible rims) court, horseshoes, etc.) amenities. This bathhouse was already closed for the year. According to their park map, there is a dumpster marked "recycling" across from the office, but I did not check it out so I do not know what kinds of recycling are accepted. The couple I dealt with were friendly and helpful. They may have been the owners. I am guessing that this is a really busy and booming park in the summer and especially on weekends. They probably have sites taken for weeks, months, etc. $40 is a bit high for this time of year, but just finding a FHU site made the cost bearable. Limited cable and not knowing how well the Wi-Fi works when the park is full keeps the rating down a bit.

This park has become our go to stop in Missouri's Boot Heel area. It is a very good overnight stop. Most sites are level, gravel, pull through, FHU sites that can accommodate a toad in front or back of the RV. They are of decent length and width. There is good 30 channel cable TV and I have found the Wi-Fi to be very reliable for our modest (e-mail and web surfing) needs. With the exception of a dozen or so back in sites in the trees, most sites appear to be satellite friendly. Unfortunately, the park has nothing recreational and there is no recycling. There is a small, reasonable, 4 machine laundry in the area between the two bathrooms in the building with the office. Even for this small, all FHU park, just a sink, stall, and shower in each of the bathrooms is not adequate. I have always found the staff/owners to be friendly and helpful.

Once again, the cost is the only good thing about this park. The RV park office is still unmanned and it is still a hassle to check in at the hotel. The hotel check in staff is clueless about RVs and the sites in the park. Except for one pull through row in the back of the park, all the sites are back in. These site pads are cement and the roads and most of the rest of the park is asphalt. My site and most of the ones I saw was not level and would have been very tight to back into if there had been RVs and toads on each side. Fortunately, the park was (once again) only about 20% full. All sites are FHU with decent able TV but the Wi-Fi was useless. The bathrooms are inadequate for size park and are not cleaned often enough because there is no RV park staff. The laundry cost is still reasonable but, again, there are not enough machine for this park. There is nothing recreational in the park. This is the 6th or 7th park in a row as we traveled through OK, TX, La, and MS on this trip where the park has no recycling.

We have stayed dozens of times over the last 2 decades and the cost is suddenly becoming an issue. There has been a change in casino management/ownership and the cost has gone up $5-10 in the past year. The park has cement, pull through, FHU sites with good, 60 channel cable TV. Unfortunately, most sites are seriously not level. Many are sloped from front to back and/or have a side-to-side slant. The Wi-Fi was a bit slow in the late afternoon, but constantly disconnected once it got dark. This was with only about 30 RVs in the park. The pool used to stay open this late in the year but the new management had it closed as of 10/31/16. This is another example of the cost cutters doing things that will simply antagonized long time customers. The laundry is still two of each machine and the price is reasonable at $1.50 per machine. The bathrooms are still inadequate (2 showers, 2 sinks, and just one stall) for this park. The office now closes at 5 P.M. The staffer I dealt with was terrific as usual. Typical for the region, there is no recycling.

We stayed here at the beginning of our fall trip at the end of September and near the end of our trip in late October. I have been here dozens of times for 300+ nights over the past 20 years. It should rate as and 8 or 9 because of its long, wide, cement sites, the good hook ups, 60+ channel (some channels are fuzzy at some sites) cable TV, and usually (except when the park is fairly full) acceptable Wi-Fi, the fine recreational amenities (pool, playground, adjacent golf course, etc.), and so on. The staff is fine, the bath/shower facilities (one in the lodge and a satellite bathhouse) are clean, and the 8 machine laundry is cheap (@.20 a load). The problem is with the management and how they FAIL to enforce Safety Rules. Kids driving golf carts, all types of vehicles zooming through the RV park, and golf carts on the sidewalks, etc. I've been here when a stabbing took place at the pool, a woman was mugged in the parking lot, and a customer died suspiciously in his RV. All if those incidents were "hushed" by management. They felt that their customers had no right to know about these incidents that could put them in a dangerous situation. Obviously, customer safety is not important to management of this casino resort.

We have literally been here dozens of time totaling over 100 nights. This will almost be just a rehashing of my last (5/16) review. My 5/15 review gives a good description of the sites, facilities and amenities. I still say the sites are NOT level and the sewer is too far forward in the sites (exacerbating the sloping problem). We were here for 2 days because we called ahead and they gave each of us a free night. My value rating is based on the normal rate - OK on weekdays and expensive on weekends. The big problem on this visit was that the Wi-Fi was down. You could not get it at the RV sites but, they said, you might get it in the lodge. Since the lodge is a 4-8 minute walk from most sites, this situation is not acceptable. As I've said before, the facilities and amenities should make this at least a 8, but the management of the casino resort keeps making "customer unfriendly" decisions regarding the RV park. I saw no sign of any recycling.

We were here a couple years ago and were happy to return. There are 3 sections of the park: Surfside down by the lake and pool is all back ins, Bridgepark by the lake and large boating parking area is also all back ins, and Tall Timbers in the terraced are away fro the lake by with great views is mostly pull through sites. There are also 4 cabins in the Surfside asrea. We had a FHU, gravel, pull through in Tall Timbers. Our site was right next to the main bathhouse (there are other bathrooms at the clubhouse and near the office) and laundry (only 3 of each machine) but that was not a problem because there were only about 20 RVs in the park. The cable TV is over 60 channels but we are still in the TV channel censorship area of the country - so no Comedy Central. Many sites appear to be satellite friendly. The Wi-Fi provider is the hated Tengo but it was worked OK since the park was fairly empty. Unfortunately, the restaurant was closed the day we were here. The staff I dealt with was friendly and helpful. I saw no sign of any recycling. The price is a bit high but this is a very nice, well run KOA.

We have been here several times in the past 5 or 6 years and, once again, were not as impressed as many other reviewers. Depending on how you count the sites (pull through sites can be used as 2 back-to-back sites) the sites are about 50/50 between pull through and back in. Others have described the extremely long, cement sites that, when the park isn't full, can be entered from either end and used as one site even though they were designed as back-to-back sites. Our site was NOT level. There is NO cable or antenna TV but most sites are satellite friendly. The Wi-Fi was pathetic. Right after checking in, I connected on about 3 P.M. By the time I was finished setting up, the connection was lost never to be connected the rest of the day. The next morning, I got on about 8:30 AM. and checked the day's weather. Once I did that the connection was again lost. This level of internet service for a big park at a big casino is NOT acceptable. There are two separate bathhouse/laundry buildings. The laundries have 5 washers and 8 dryers each. Each machine is only a buck, but it took $2 to dry a load. Each bathroom has only 2 sinks, stalls, urinals, and showers. That is not enough for a park this size even if all the sites were FHU. In fact, there are 7 tent sites in the north eastern corner of the park. The staff I dealt with seemed a bit clueless concerning some things about the park. There is a pool, a playground, and an in/outdoor pavilion. This park could be a 9 but the lack of cable, pathetic internet, and non-level sites lowers my ranking. Also, there was NO sign of any recycling.

Date of Stay:

We have been here before and knew what to expect. As I detailed in my prior review, there are 3 main sections of this park for RVs: There a couple dozen W&E, back in sites in the heavily treed section of the park, a line of 19 VERY narrow, FHU sites right in front of the office, and a dozen slightly roomier FHU sites in front of those. The sites in the trees are best for smaller RVs and those who don't need FHU. Almost all of the 19 VERY narrow sites are taken by what appear to be area workers. Some of the better FHU sites were also taken by extended stay customers. We had one of the dozen "better" FHU sites. The sites also have cable TV with almost 40 channels. Unfortunately, although the picture was good, about 1/3 of the channels had NO audio at our site. By the time I realized the problem, the office was closed. Many of the sites in front of the office are satellite friendly. The Wi-Fi worked well enough for our minimal (e-mail and surfing ) needs. In addition to the bathrooms and laundry in the main building, there is a fairly modern separate bathhouse building by the end of the FHU rows, but it is still not quite adequate because of all the non-sewer sites. There are also 8 cabins/chalets plus numerous tent sites. The cabins are near the lake. There is a pool (closed for the season), bounce pillow, game room, and playground. In addition to the kids stuff, the playground area actually had several pieces of metal, adult exercise equipment that was painted colors to match the kids playground equipment. I've never seen that before. The staff I dealt with were friendly and helpful. I saw no sign of recycling. This is a decent spot to stay for an overnight if all you want/need is FHU, cable, and decent Wi-Fi.

I think it has been 5 years since our last stay here. This continues to be a very good park. All sites are FHU with 40+ channel cable TV and are reasonably long and wide. There are some shrubs and small trees but most sites appear to be satellite friendly. There are about 35 perimeter sites on the north, east, and south sides of the park that are back ins. They abut the walls of the park. Most of these sites appear (large propane tanks, wooden steps, skirts, etc.) to be area residents or workers. Most of the remaining sites are in 9 rows of pull through sites. Some of these sites also appear to be extended stay customers. Finally, there are also 11 back in sites behind the office. All the roads are asphalt and the site pads are a combination of asphalt (entry and exit) and cement pads in the center. As a recent reviewer mentioned many of the pull through sites have the sewer connection too far forward. From my tour of the sites, this appears to be true of most of the pull through sites in the northern half of the park. The sites in the southern half seem to be longer giving you more room to move a motor home far enough forward to reach the sewer more easily. The park was maybe a little more than half full and we had Wi-Fi that was OK for our minimal needs. The clubhouse,pool, and spa facility in the north east corner of the park was closed for the season. The office has the check in desk, a nice sitting area, a small park store, and the kitchen that serves the pizza and wings. There are 3 stand alone bathhouse/laundry buildings throughout the park. Each has 5 individual bathrooms and a laundry with 4 of each machine at $1 per machine. The staff I dealt with were young and did not seem to be particularly adept at customer service. I saw no sign of any recycling.

We have not been here in years. I can understand why several recent reviewers have made negative remarks about the owner and/or the check in person. When I was in the office, I found the man to be ill mannered and rather "gruff" for someone dealing with the public. Most RV sites are FHU, side-by-side, gravel and pull through Our site was all that plus short and narrow. I believe that we were assigned a shorter site because we do not tow. There are many reasonably long sites. There is also a group of 8 back-to-back sites and another 6 sites in the southwest corner of the park. The back of the park has about a dozen tent sites. I think all the RV sites have cable TV with about 35 channels. Unfortunately, there is no Weather Channel but it does have the Weather Nation channel. There appear to be some sites that are satellite friendly. If you want one of those you should make that specific request one. The RV sites were about half full with most folks just there for the night. There did appeared to be a couple dozen extended stay customers. We had decent Wi-Fi for our minimal (e-mail and web surfing) needs but lost the connection a couple times for a few minutes. The laundry was in the main building behind the office/store and had about 6 machines costing $1.50 and $1.00. That building had fairly large bathrooms with 4 or 5 showers stalls. There was a second bathhouse toward the back of the park with another 4 showers. Unlike most parks, these bath facilities are adequate for a park this size. There is a pool (already closed for the season) and a small playground behind the office. I saw no sign of any recycling.

We stayed here once before and the main thing that has changed is that you must check in at the hotel. This is always a pain. The RV park building that used to have a check in desk still has the desk but it was not manned when we were there. This building also contains a nice lounge with a large screen TV and the bathrooms and showers. They were clean and adequate for a park with all FHU sites. The roads in the park are asphalt/gravel and all the sites are pull though with long (maybe 60-70'), 12' wide gravel pads. There are 3 rows of sites and they are separated by a large (about 60'X20'), curbed gravel filled island that contains the hook ups. The cable TV is about 25 channels and the listing in the check in area does not match the channels. There are no trees of any size, so it appears that all sites are satellite friendly. Our site in the middle row was reasonably level and the others looked level. There were only about a dozen sites taken the night we were here so the Wi-Fi was pretty good. We were disconnected a couple time but could usually get back on within minutes. I seem to remember there being at least one washer and dryer in the RV park building but that is no longer the case. They have built a laundromat over at the travel center/gas station. It is a long walk or a short drive. Don't plan on doing laundry here - just the washers were $3.75! I saw no sign of any recycling. There are no recreational or other facilities/amenities in the RV park. Evidently, you can use the casino hotel's pool and some other facilities there. If all you want is a cheap FHU site with OK cable TV and Wi-Fi, this is a good overnight stop.

We have been here before but were unable to get a site here a couple weeks ago during the Albuquerque Balloon Fest. This time the park had only about 20 customers. So, the Wi-Fi was pretty good with only one short disconnect about 10 P.M. We had a level, gravel, pull through site with 50 channel cable TV. I believe that describes all sites in the park. There are 4 rows of sites. As others have said, the sites are side-by-side and narrow but, because they are so long and the hook ups are well placed, the rigs are not right next to each other. The bathhouse, which is on the west edge of the park, could be a bit of a walk if your site is on the east side. There are just 2 men's and 2 women's bathrooms in this building. Even though all sites are FHU, such a limited bath facility is not adequate. There is nothing recreational in the park. The office has a small store and serves coffee and muffins in the morning. The laundry is in a building near the bathhouse and has about 15 old machines costing $2.00 and $1.50. The staff I dealt with were friendly and helpful. This is a good overnight park at a reasonable cost right off I-40.

The facilities at this park are actually OK. The park was less than half full. We had one of their premium, FHU, pull through sites with minimal (less than 20 channels and NO weather channel) cable TV. Our cost was less that previous reviews because the season is winding down. The Wi-Fi was OK with just a couple short disconnects. The big problem for us was how un-level the site was. For the most expensive sites, the drop from right to left was the worst I have experienced in years. After 20 minutes of trying to find a sot on the sites where we could possibly get reasonable level, we gave up, We went back to the office and got another site. The new site had the same slant but was doable with a couple boards. The fact that they even assigned us the first site and then seemed put out that we found the site unacceptable, lowers the "service" ranking. 2 hours later they put a rental RV in the site we rejected. All you had to do was look at their Class C to see that it was on a terrible slant all night. The bathroom and shower facilities are completely inadequate for a park that is often full during the height of the season and has so many many non-sewer sites. In addition to the usual bath facilities in the main building there are several satellite bathhouses, but they are small and not all of them have showers. They did have a dumpster for recycling.
