Good for an overnight stay. Long level lots. Cable tv is a plus. One block from a C store and VA Hospital. Friendly staff. Some highway noise.

Date of Stay:

Good overnight place close to interstate and a Harley dealer. Great cable, limited wifi. Level gravel spots. Friendly manager. Call ahead and he'll meet you and guide you in. Very busy during snowbird travel.

Date of Stay:

We arrived after a good rain and our site was pretty soupy. We saw some with standing water. All sites are "parallel" pull-through which put our rig, particularly the awning, in danger of being snagged by trees. The site was not level.

Date of Stay:

Although well off the beaten path, this campground is usually full because of its proximity to Monticello, Thomas Jefferson's plantation. This is in a beautiful mountainous area of Virginia near the Blue Ridge Parkway. The campground is wooded and most lots are "parallel" pull-through. Our lot was level and quiet. Our sewer was not conveniently located so we skipped using it.

This is a popular park that offers many weekend activities which help attract folks. It is well off of US 11 on winding roads. They have many pull-through FHU sites which were long, paved, and nearly level. The large tent area and the back-in sites included fire rings. The campground borders a rapidly running river. It is about midway between Johnson City and Greeneville.

Date of Stay:

We arrived at dark, not our usual M/O, so the driveway into the park besides being odd was pretty tricky. The park itself is fine. We did not want to unhook and we able to achieve that by sticking into the road quite a bit which no one complained about. Sites, though not long, were spacious enough. I got the idea they double them up when needed on race weekends. They have four water spigots grouped together in the rear, an odd arrangement which meant that, had we used water, we would have had to string our hose(s) under the rig. Elec and sewer were at the back of the sites as well, not the best location for many rigs. We were off a busy street but we didn't notice traffic noise.

Date of Stay:

This park is very far off the beaten path and therefore very quiet. We stayed in a back-in overflow area with water and electric only because a weekend event had filled up the rest. The pool looked inviting. The mini-golf needed some TLC. We will stay here again if the others are full.

Date of Stay:

The back-in sites here are excellent but I give it an 8 because wifi was very poor and there is no sewer. Taking showers in their shower room saves on the grey water situation. All sites are level and are conveniently located to the well-stocked store and refreshing swimming pool. Making reservations through Reserve America worked well.

Read my previous review. Price has gone up, but their attention to detail has deteriorated. A park ranger comes by in the early evening to collect your payment. This is still a great place if you need to be in Moberly.

I've reviewed this park before. We stay here yearly to visit grandkids. I've never been as impressed with it as I am today. The new owners have taken it from an acceptable place that had some maintenance problems to a showplace. Pool is very good, playground is excellent, electricity during a very hot A/C kind of stay, was flawless and the newly opened Rec room is a good addition. I'm pleasantly recommending this park to all.

This park is near the highway but surprisingly quiet. It has mostly wooded level sites. Cable TV was very good but WiFi, for which they give you a password, was mostly non- existent.

Date of Stay:

This park has easy pull-through level gravel sites that are long enough for most. Each site has a picnic table. The bathrooms were spotless. The park was well-organized and had several trees for shade. The owners were helpful and busy. I recommend calling ahead as the park filled up even on a week night in early May. There is some interstate noise. This was a good overnight stop for us.

Date of Stay:

This is in a city-owned park. Beautiful setting. We stay here while visiting family. They have a new bathhouse. A drawback is that the whole area is open to the world. Sometimes the place is filled with traveling construction workers, another drawback. But it is our first and most convenient choice for the Moberly area.

We stayed one night. We were one of 2 rigs in our area. If there were full hookup sites, we missed them. We had a 30 amp pull- through that was not level but plenty long. We had no water or sewer. There was a pump and pit toilet nearby. I think this would be a fine spot to stay if you are interested in the Latter Day Saints (Mormon) sights to see. For an overnight it worked well too. I believe one can make reservations which would help find those full hookup sites mentioned in another review. And the drive out of here into Keokuk along the river was great.
