I understand what previous reviewers have said about this campground but my experience was very good. This campground has much others do not. It has a great walking trail, great beach and view. The Wifi is strong and free. It also has a great history going back to the Revolutionary War and is the location of a previous Coast Guard station. It is also the location of Gallows Hill where they used to hang offenders.

Date of Stay:

If you own a dog, do not visit this park. There are at least two sets of pit bulls owned by permanent residents who attack other dogs regularly. I witnessed a severe attack and the owner of the victim dog was taken off his feet and injured while trying to defend his poor pet. This is a relatively large campground with too many permanent residents. There are apparently no clutter limits at each site. At one site there was an old sofa parked outside as if it belonged. The roads are certainly accessible and most of the sites are level with adequate shade. Weekend activities load up the energy in the park for the kids.

Date of Stay:

This is not a "big rig" park. The first clue are the overhanging branches trying to knock off your air conditioner the last two miles into the park. If that were not enough, the bridge into the park has a labeled load limit of 6 tons. These are not reassuring hints. The park itself is fine except that the layout of sites is haphazard to say the least. No site aligns with another and are placed sporadically.

This is a great park but it suffers from infrastructure problems. The cable TV is fuzzy largely due to the cable running above ground and around trees throughout the park. The voltage is weak as well. Our average voltage with just one TV on was about 98 volts. They say they are "working on it." But it is a great park with lots to do and lots of forested sites.

Date of Stay:

This is a large, reasonably spacious campground. A fair number of permanent residents but nothing too rundown. Some very nice restaurants close. Staff here was not impolite but could benefit from a short lesson in charm school. There are some people who are reluctantly helpful.

Older park but lots of activities and nice sites.

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.

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.
