Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA, Jonestown, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

A beautiful well-established park, with lots of grass, trees & landscaping. Like other KOAs these days, they are geared for families with lots of activities: boating, bicycling, "gem mining" (screen a bucket of dirt for pretty rocks), arcade, a huge ground-level trampoline and so on. The sites are spacious & shady, and despite the large number of campers, there is some breathing room. We stayed mid-week in late August & the campground was nearly full by 4pm, so reservations by noon are recommended. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Motorhome.

Oxbow Campground, Deering, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Oxbow Campground is all about families, with a range of activities available & planned weekend events. About 20% of the sites are designated for short term (3 days or less); the rest are seasonal. Campers leave their RVs set up & return on the weekends. Golf carts were commonplace, as the campground is fairly spread out.

The weekend we were here, passing through one night on the way north, there was a Halloween celebration (in August) with full blown decorations, the kids in costumes, hayrides, a DJ. This made for quite a lively & noisy campground. The kids, including the teenagers, seemed pretty happy, and nary a cell phone in sight (no service!!).

Our site (90) was nearer to the front, and so we had a lot of traffic around us, coming & going: cars, golf carts, pedestrians, Halloween celebrators, maintenance workers, people walking dogs, etc.

We had low hanging branches on our site that looked likely to damage our motorhome on the way out of the pull-through. The owner was very responsive to our request & immediately took them down.

There are tight turns, some large rocks on the edges of the driveways & lots of branches throughout the park.

The wifi is limited to the area in and around the office. We camped at Oxbow Campground in a Motorhome.

Benner's Meadow Run Camping & Cabins, Farmington, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

This park is rural, and our stay (on a Monday) was very quiet. Absolutely no road noise here! The park looks well maintained. Most sites are occupied by permanent & seasonal residents, with lots of add-ons like porches, outdoor furniture etc. We have a big rig & tow & it was a little tight getting through the turns in the park, but nothing too serious. Sites are a mix of grass & gravel. The park gave us a very long pull-thru, which was actually two sites combined (but charged us for only one). WiFi was very good (we were near the office).

The only negative for us was no where to park upon check-in. We blocked the entrance gate ( which requires a code) & someone in a car had to wait behind us while we registered. We camped at Benner's Meadow Run Camping & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Louisville North Campground (formerly Louisville Metro KOA), Clarksville, Indiana

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Wow, is this place tight! With my arms outstretched I could easily touch our rig and our neighbor's slide-out. There's not much room for towed vehicles, so most stick out into the road. So, with obstacles like trees, RVs, toads, and really tight turns, negotiating this place is a white-knuckle adventure in a big rig with a toad. But we did it without kissing anything, my husband yelling yahoo with each successful turn with inches to spare & me with breath held gripping the arm rests. So be forewarned--take your time & a deep breath & you'll (probably) be fine!
Yep, as others have said, this is a parking lot with amenities, and you'll pay well for the privilege of having them. Even with our KOA discount, it's about 25% higher than the average RV park rate we've seen throughout the Midwest.

Fortunately, the trains that rumble through next to the park (close enough to feel the rig shake) were quiet after about 8pm, and the construction noise on the roads above didn't start until about 8am (Sunday morning). Speaking of construction, Louisville is a cone-zone nightmare with confusing signage. Avoid rush hour!!!
On the positive side, the park is clean & seems well-managed. Staff was friendly, the store well-stocked. We filled up with propane for less than $3 per gallon. The wifi was good. We didn't use the cable, but had at least a dozen stations OTA. Water pressure was very strong, so use a regulator. We camped at Louisville North Campground (formerly Louisville Metro KOA) in a Motorhome.

Avoid Louisville rush hour! Cone Zones & poor signage here are stressful even under the best of circumstances. Coming in from 64 headed east, we had to take the 264 loop around to 65 & then go south to the park.

Big Springs RV Camp, Van Buren, Missouri

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

We almost didn't stay in Big Spring RV Park, from the impression we had from other reviewers that it might be problematic to find/get into/navigate within the park. I'm glad we went--What a shame if we had missed this nice park!

If you're heading east, you've got a simple right turn onto 103, go 1/4 mile, turn left on Chicopee, and the park is 1/4 mile up on the left. Heading west, you'll have to cross the two lanes of Hwy 60 from the left hand turn to get into 103, but traffic (when we visited anyway) was light & should not present a problem. (Summer weekends might be a different matter though).

Our enthusiasm for this park was not dampened (pun intended) even by the torrential rains that muddied the Current River into flood stage, and scrapped our plans for a float trip. (The RV park is a concessionaire for the National Park Service, for tube rentals & shuttle service to float this federally protected wild river). We took our toad to explore the beautiful rivers by land--get a map from the office or Ozark NRR Park Headquarters in town. The RV park itself did not flood or seem in any danger of doing so, as it is significantly above the river. A ramp at the side of the office gives easy access for launching tubes or kayaks.

All hook-ups worked well. Water pressure is very strong & you'll want a regulator.

WiFi at our site was spotty, although I managed to get my internet needs met by sitting in the comfortable porch area of the office, where the WiFi was excellent.

Owner was warm, friendly & seemed genuinely interested in making our stay a pleasant one. We are eager to return & have another chance at a float trip. We camped at Big Springs RV Camp in a Motorhome.

Cooper Creek Campground, Branson, Missouri

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Cooper Creek RV Park is a great base camp for exploring Branson & vicinity. Well-managed, quiet, next to a wildlife preserve & right on Lake Taneycomo not far from the dam, the location is also close to many shows & shopping, & is off the Yellow Route.

The park is well-maintained, with basic food & fishing supplies & gifts at the office. Doing laundry there was trouble-free, with quarters available, 8 machines & clean; the laundromat also houses a book exchange.

Water pressure was very strong. Bring a regulator.

We were able to pick up 1/2 dozen tv stations over the air, & cable is available. The office has cables to loan if you need one.

WiFi was awful, though apparently not for a lack of effort from the park. Based on the number of Wifi locations in the park, our position in the campground, as well as the relatively few campers, we were really surprised at the consistently poor wifi.

We used the ticket delivery service suggested by the park & it was reliable.

A highlight of our stay was using the fishing guide based here. Excellent guide, we caught lots of trout, & we learned a lot. We would definitely stay at Cooper Creek again. We camped at Cooper Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Call ahead for a reservation & to get your site number (especially if you have a big rig) so you can pull in to your site immediately and the go settle at the office. The office is located at the back of the park, near the lake, rather than the entrance.

Ozark Trails RV Park and Campground, Linn Creek, Missouri

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This is a decent park, a bit rustic, with some great & not so great aspects. First, there is enough of a distance away from the hubbub of Osage Beach (about 10 miles) to be quiet, but still close enough to enjoy the activities there. We were at the back of the park (site 63) so road noise from 54 was not a factor. Our site was way out of level, but the park management provided leveling blocks. Our pull-thru had a pleasant view of the surrounding forest, but unfortunately our neighbors were too close (about 20' on one side, 30' on the other). The picnic tables sit right on your neighbor's sewer hookup. Other sites in the park did not seem so close. There may be tight u-turns getting into/out of the park, depending on your direction. We camped at Ozark Trails RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Binder Park, Jefferson City, Missouri

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

We enjoyed our 3 nights at Binder Lake Park, our second visit to this quiet, wooded park. Our site (16) was very private, so our close neighbors on either side were barely visible through the leaves. The host was helpful, loaning us an extra length of hose & a splitter (as the water is shared between two sites, and was about 80 feet from our site). You might bring your own though, as he may not have enough to go around. The park has a limited number of sites, so a reservation in the summer is recommended. Also, as you come in on Business 50 to turn onto Binder Lake Road to the park, there is a very low electrical wire across the road. At 12'8", we fit under just fine, but it did cause a bit of a concern when we first encountered it. We camped at Binder Park in a Motorhome.

Wallace State Park, Cameron, Missouri

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

Wallace State Park is a lovely, tranquil place, a really sweet discovery. There is a small lake with swimming. Two of the campgrounds have electric, mostly 30 amp, with 50amp available in two sites (by reservation); the basic sites seem more suitable for tents, but OK for smaller rigs. If you have never stayed here before & especially if you have a big rig, I would recommend calling the park before making a reservation online. Some of the sites are easy pull-thru & very level. Some are gravel, some paved. The back-ins tended to be very private & attractive (nestled in the trees), but also many were not level. One electric site had a pretty steep drop-off with a lot of overhanging trees that we would not have attempted. (Ok if you're small, but no way with a behemoth motorhome!) We camped at Wallace State Park in a Motorhome.

Double Nickel Campground, Waco, Nebraska

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

Well maintained park with lots of amenities, including a very clean swimming pool, mini golf & playground, arcade, laundry, decent wifi. Well-maintained lawn & trees, with many porch swings throughout the camp gave it a peaceful, friendly atmosphere. The owners live onsite & are very friendly & caring. Our big rig & tow had ample room in the generously sized pull-through, with 50 amp & water. The park has very easy access off I-80, but that also means highway noise. We camped at Double Nickel Campground in a Motorhome.
