Older park but lots of activities and nice sites.

Date of Stay:

This is a very nice park. Sound from associated theme park is not a problem. Staff responded in a very professional manner to my request to add road signs to assist campers entering so as to not get lost in the crowd. They created and installed signs within days. It is obvious they care when approached properly.

Date of Stay:

This is a more than adequate campground with wide spaces and plenty of room. The Wi-Fi leaves a lot to be desired. It is both slow and intermittent. It is reasonably convenient to town, where there is plenty to do. Do not forget to take the tram ride to the top of the mountain.

Date of Stay:

I hardly know where to begin sharing the disappointments this campground has to offer. Should I tell you about the $6.00 Internet charge or the dog that barks all night long on the neighbor's property to the west or rather oddly designed sewage dump holes which emit the foulest odors. I will finish off by letting you know that the is inconveniently distant from the strip.

This park is not quite so bad as others say but I would like to add a topic they have not touched upon. The "cable TV" they offer requires one of the staff to disconnect various antennas and wires in your RV, then hook up a converter box. They don't bother to tell you this when you check in so you spend a half hour troubleshooting the problem before you think to call the office. They should hand you the converter box when you check in, then ask if you are an electrical engineer and able to do it yourself.

This is a great place to stay for an evening or two. Close to the Interstate and close enough to nearby Hays to do some shopping. Very relaxed town but the restaurants are limited.

This is not a bad campground and I only downgraded it because it is definitely not big rig friendly. If you do decided to venture into campground, do not drive up the hill to the office. It is a dead end road and difficult to back down. Signage would have been helpful.

One of the best campgrounds for hundreds of miles around. We explored St. Louis from it but it does take a while to get to the city from the campground. Hosting staff are very helpful and the rangers are relaxed. Nature presentations are given on the weekends.

Date of Stay:

Blue Spring has easy access off the interstate. Reasonably close to Truman Presidential Museum and only an hour from historic St. Joseph. Staff could not be more friendly and helpful.

I hate to downgrade this campground because we have stayed here before and been happy. It is definitely close to Philly and convenient. Unfortunately, for the 3 days we stayed this time, the constant noises from pressure washers, lawn mowers and equipment was unbearable. There should be some quiet time at least for an hour or two. On top of that, the place seems to be more or less all permanents. The big guy next to us had a big dog who he let poop on our site without picking it up. I did not complain until I was leaving for concern over having a "misunderstanding." We should not have had to tolerate that kind of behavior.

What a beautiful campground, close to Washington, D.C., to be ruined by management's decision to put a skateboard park at the edge of the camp. Gone is the quiet serenity in the woods while you sit in your lawn chair. Swish, bang, slide all day long. Wow! They even have lights for nighttime skateboarding. Forget those peaceful evenings too.

A nice clean park near the Interstate, but without the noise. October visitors can enjoy a fairly sophisticated Halloween adventure adjoining the campground. With campground street names like Spooky Lane and Monster Way, it is obvious the owners are committed to the holiday. Very enjoyable.

Date of Stay:

This park is reasonably close to the Interstate but requires a double back in the other direction when leaving. In other words, you end up wasting time going the wrong way just to get started in the morning. Sadly, there is also significant road noise from the local road and sounds of hunters all day which makes this anything but a relaxing place to stay.

Clean. Quiet. Level. Those are the most outstanding points of this campground. On the other hand, no one could proclaim this place to have any shade or be generous on space between sites. Overall, pleasant but no beauty spot. If you come, be sure to visit the Giraffe Ranch a few miles to the north. It is a very rewarding experience.

Date of Stay:

I give this campground such a low score because of the painful stickers everywhere. They are painful and disabling when they stick in your pets' feet. It is sad to watch. If you do not have pets, it is a fine, reasonably quiet park. You can visit George W. Bush's boyhood home here.
