Peaceful Valley Resort & RV Park, Sunrise Beach, Missouri

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

Felt a bit mislead. 4 of us adults stayed Thursday thru Sunday 9/20 thru 9/23/18. We both had motorhomes and wanted to pull in and back in; so our patios faced. We stayed in sites 1 & 2 on the lake "front" area. Frank the owner met us and I questioned the lake front sites and the price as our sites were really "creek view" at best with views of the Cozy Cove mobile home area and their marina. He said we could stay at the campground if we wanted, but at $40 a night, we figured we'd stay by the "lake" for an extra $10. The hook ups were set so that you really had to back in to use them. Luckily for us, there was some PVC pipe laying around, so we were able to get in far enough to dump and then maneuver into place facing the "lake". Our friends who backed in never had a lakeview unless they walked behind our coaches and sat at the picnic table. We had a fire ring that was filthy and full of cigarette butts, plus an old bbq grill that looked like someone just left it, but at least we were able to move the fire ring towards the "lake". Luckily there were some good sized fallen branches that we could burn cuz I didn't know they sold wood till I saw and asked Frank on Sunday after it was too late. Also beware...there are a lot of neighborhood dogs that roam the area off leash AND beware that the lake sites are literally 4 to 6 feet off the main road. This could be crazy loud/annoying during peak summer season. Despite all this, we still had a good time here because we were with great friends. I would have given this place 4 stars if it wasn't so spendy for what you get (or don't get in this case). Will we ever stay again...probably not. Did we have fun, yes. We camped at Peaceful Valley Resort & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Big Creek RV Park, Annapolis, Missouri

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

We had a great time here at Big Creek. We were traveling with another couple in a motorhome and The staff was able to accomodate us in sites 121 and 122. One of us was able to pull in and the other backed in so our awnings faced each other and gave us a common area. We were here 4 nights. We got to visit the surrounding areas, participate in the rubber duck race at the campground (and won!), plus spend a day in the creek. The hosts are awesome and this is now our go to place when visiting this area. We camped at Big Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Cherokee Lakes Campground, O'fallon, Missouri

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Was excited to come based on the good reviews. Glad this place has 2 access roads because we passed up the actual entrance. It actually worked to our advantage when I called the park saying we were here. It just happened we were right down from the 50 amp site he assigned us, so we were able to pull right in. At first sight we weren't that impressed. We were next to an out building that had a couple equipment trailers parked out front and could barely see one of the lakes on the property. But then we met the new owner who came by to make sure we were ok, collect our site fee and see if we had any questions or needed anything. He explained that he was only 6 months into his ownership and told us of his plans to "polish this little diamond of a place". After set up we took the dog for a walk about the place. It's really very nice. The lakes are nice and we were told by a couple of people that the fishing is pretty good. There are paddle boats for rent by the hour. The pool wasn't open and was being prepped for renovation. The laundry rooms were clean but we didn't need to use them. The ladies restroom was also clean when I poked my head in, but again, I didn't use them. This place is convenient to O'Fallon and the surrounding areas. I thought the $30 site fee was a little high when the pool wasn't open, but then again, I love supporting family businesses and wish Mike and his little boy nothing but success...so I didn't mind paying that amount. We have camped at many a places and think this is an average campground with the ability to be REALLY nice. We wish the new owner nothing but a successful transition to campground ownership and making this an above average campground. If we are ever in this area in the future we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Cherokee Lakes Campground in a Motorhome.

Buffalo Gap Guest Ranch & RV Campground, Medora, North Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We arrived on a Sunday (late afternoon). When we turned off the highway and started heading towards the camp, there was a campground sign pointing to the left so I called to ask if that is where we should turn but the lady on the phone said to keep going straight. When we got there we didn't see an office but thanks to another review, we knew the bar was the correct place to go to register. When we got there, the bartender seemed to be ignoring us and was tending to the only guy at the bar. She finally asked another girl to help us, but apparently they were hosting some exchange students or something and this girl had a hard accent to understand and didn't seem to understand us either. Finally the bartender came over and basically told us we should go find a campsite since they were pretty much empty and then come back and register. I added this as a tip below that she should just tell people that if they call on the phone so we didn't have to block their entrance as much as we were. We drove thru their main road between the lodging and up to the campground. The sites all looked fairly new and were really long. This is mostly a horse resort but we thought it would be a different change of pace from the typical campgrounds. Unfortunately there was nothing going on. Plus, the resort had just had a 400 person wedding the night before which could explain why none of the staff were overly friendly (they were just tired :-). But we did get to pet a couple of horses and found out that the following weekend the ranch would be hosting a pretty big concert as well as camping. So we thought we lucked out since it was so quiet while we were there. The place is really nice despite the lack of trees. The cabins/rooms were nice too AND for those who don't necessarily like to cook, they have a restaurant along with the bar and a really nice patio overlooking the "not so Badlands!" If we ever have the chance to be driving past Medora, we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Buffalo Gap Guest Ranch & RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

To the Buffalo Gap guest ranch...you might want to have better signage that you are not affiliated with the first campground to the left so people (especially in big rigs) don't turn at the wrong place. Also, the entrance isn't that large so in order to keep RV's from blocking other guests, you might want to assign spots over the phone or let people know they should just drive to the campground, pick a site and then come back and register.
