We arrived mid afternoon following the directions on the web page. Some tight turns for our 40'er from the highway onto frontage road and then again once in the park. We did have a good place to park up on the hill, but the park is very compact. Roads and sites were gravel; we did not have a table nor much of anywhere to put out chairs. Showers were clean but not spectacular. Staff was very nice and very helpful. We found some interesting places to visit in Waco and a great BBQ place a few miles north of the park.

We stayed here for a Rally so I don't have a nightly rate. The facilities are very nice although sites are close, the staff helpful and very friendly, and propane is available. Branson has one problem - hills and the drive getting to ABC can be a challenge. Worth a call to find out about road construction in the area before you drive up the road to this park. With all the plus that this park has, the drive in and parking once in the park can be interesting especially if you are parked, in a 40' motorhome, so you have to drive against traffic to get out of the park. That is my only complaint and why I downgraded the review. Branson is a great place and everyone will certainly have fun. Plan to purchase diesel in Springfield, it is easier than in Branson.

Rarely do we give a park a 10 but WOW! Beautiful facility, all cement site with landscaping. everything worked as it should, and the restrooms and showers were top of the line fancy! Clean is not the word. Immaculate is the word. Friendly helpful staff, bus service from unit to the casino, plenty to do in the area, and quiet for being near a 4-lane highway. We were delighted with this find and will certainly stay again.

We stayed at the Amana Campground last summer and enjoyed the area so returned for a few days this year too. The campground is nothing to look at, just row upon row of sites filled, if there is a rally, with RVs. The trees are tiny and the dust billows on the gravel roads and sites. Although there is grass between sites, it is not watered so pretty dry with no rain. Staff is efficient, guided us to our level site and answered questions as we had them. This is not a campground where you stay to do things but instead a place to park to enjoy the Amanas, Cedar Rapids, Coralville, and all the other surrounding cities with many things to do. Restrooms and showers were clean but older; the laundry is small but available and the price was right!

We continue to be amazed at the improvements made to this small northern Missouri campground. We stayed last year and were impressed. This years stay was no different. Our only problem is that television reception is spotty at best. Verizon, however, was excellent. Our site was a long level pull-through. Restroom, shower and laundry were clean. The campground is clean and neat, the owners friendly and helpful, and the scenic farmland quite beautiful. Payment is check or cash only, but the fee is very reasonable. We stayed for a few days to relax, but this is a great location for those traveling I-35 north or south too. We will stay again when in the area.

If you seek a quiet natural campground, this may be the place. Tucked back in a wooded area along the lake, KOA has found a great location with access to woods, lake, farm animals (including Molly), fishing pond, and many good sites to set up for an evening or longer. Our gravel site was almost level, very long, and had a table. Birds and farm animals led to the enjoyment as did lake access. Since we are birders we wished we could stay longer during migration. The staff was fun and cook a good dinner and breakfast for campers. We have stayed here previously and wished we could stay longer this time. If you visit, make certain you visit Molly, the newest mascot, and walk down to the lake. Rate reflects KOA discount, although a little pricey to us.

We stay here in the spring and again in the fall as we travel to and from the Valley so we have seen many changes and we have been placed in a number of sites in the park. This time we spent the night behind the club house and pool. We really like sites back here but they are narrow. Our 40 fter. just fit but we did have a table, flowers and grass on each side, and a level pad. So, trash dumpster is 50 ft down the road, big deal! The staff is friendly and courteous, as usual, and we found the location of our site to be easy in/out. We always eat a meal at Babe's Chicken House in Burleson. It's fried chicken dinner only so if you want something else don't go there but if you love fried chicken, Babes is only a few miles up the highway and a great fried chicken dinner. This is a convenient park for us and we have not always rated it this high but our stay this time was great.

We spent one night at this park and were greeted by very friendly staff at check-in and in the park. Our site was under trees at the back of the park on a long, quite level gravel location. The park was very quiet other than whistles as trains passed through town. Restrooms and showers were clean. The park is a block south of I-10 and some local restaurants give a park discount. Stanzel Model Airplane Museum, Polka Museum, and the area painted churches are unique to the area. The smokehouse offers an excellent buffet and other restaurants offer a good variety of food. We will return to this park when in the area.

A nice park on 77 North with many shops, a Wal-Mart, restaurants, etc., less than a mile away. On-site manager was helpful and the checkin was very easy. Cement pads and shade trees lend ambience to the small park. The laundry, shower and restrooms are clean. This is not a park for tourists with children who need to be entertained. No play equipment or pool for kids. Permanent residents are coming into parks in the area due to the employment boom in the Victoria area, and they are coming to this park too. Reservations would be in order if you plan to use the park, as we do when we pass through Victoria again.

We were quoted a $40 rate but the $36 was a "discount". The park features cement pads and roads but the pull-throughs have extremely tight width. If there had been neighbors to either side we would not have been able to put out slides or awning. Check-in was fine for us and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Aluminum can recycling is available. No one has mentioned this but make certain to have liquid laundry soap if you use the machines as signs are posted all over the laundry room that only liquid is allowed. No provisions to get other soap unless you drive into town to HEB. The park was clean, even during the windy April days we visited.

The nightly rate reflects a week rate discount as we stayed a week. Cement pads, a small patio and small picnic table are nice but very windy while we were here, so we did not sit out much. This is a cement pad and grass between sites park, no sand. Many things to do in the area, especially Port Aransas, accessible by the FREE ferry. Also many things to do in Corpus Christie, only a few miles around the bay. Clean restrooms and laundry area are nice and the park is very clean. Camp host is friendly the camp helpers keep the grounds looking nice. Good local restaurants in town with seafood and Hispanic food excellent plus fish markets if you want to cook your own. We will stay here again if in the area.

This is a wonderful campground but seemed to have problems in the office. Do they know what's going on? We really liked the large site and the fact the everyone was so friendly. But, did not like some the the "new rules" enacted, apparently recently, that included restrictions on laundry usage, and on the state park through-gate usage that had attracted us to stop here. The park gate was an excellent place to get our dogs through to the park walking area but it was locked. For what we paid, we would have expected basic advertised park "frills". These were big disappointments to an otherwise top line park.

Rate reflects Passport America. An easy on and off RV resort just a block from I-35. If you have a big rig request a site on the hill rather than down in the main camping area. We have done this twice with good results. Our pull through site is level, has a concrete pad and small table. The grounds are clean as was the main area. The resort has a large cable TV hookup (free) with a wide selection of channels and Verizon (cell and broadband) worked just fine. Many fine restaurants in the area up and down I-35, plus a Camping World, and many shops. We will return here because of the convenience.

We have stayed here twice before it became Jellystone. While the new format will bring in families, it did not impress us any more than before, maybe a little less. The park is big enough for family friendly activities and a quiet area for those traveling through. Our site was level and we had a good grassy patch outside our door. Along with grass came a large hill of fire ants that moved everytime staff disturbed the nest. We did not have any problem with Wi-Fi, TV or Verizon. We did hear road noise from I-35, to be expected when the campground is on the interstate. If the owners want to promote child activities, the fire ants need to be destroyed and we downgraded for that.

The rate we paid reflects KOA discounts. We did not have very good satellite or Verizon reception but could get wi-fi from the office area. It is a nicely kept campground that was clean, including the trail to the lake. Bath and laundry were clean and we found a low fee in the laundry; a nice surprise. Many mature trees only partly mask highway truck tire noise but that did not bother us. Tenters might not agree. The campground is ten miles from everywhere so bring food or eat at the on-site restaurant. We cannot vouch for food quality as we are home cookers. The campground was quiet and we found the owners friendly. It is a good spot to stay without going into Tulsa.
