The only reason this received an 8 was because it did not have pull thru's. All cement, extra parking for your automobile, street lights, down right friendly Seniors running the place. Would recommend this place. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. (We never give a 10, so a 9 would be our top for any campground.)

Date of Stay:

You have to be traveling South to enter this park. All grass site and when it rains, well, good luck. I sank 8 inches and left ruts about 30 ft trying to get out of site #2. We finally stayed in #E4. This park is more or less an open acreage with some hook-ups. Not very professional at all; campground or manager. A one night shot and that's all it was worth. Would not recommend this park and we will not stay here again.

Date of Stay:

We made a reservation over the phone about a week before we arrived. When we arrived 12:30pm on a Monday, there was no one in the office. A sign on the door said to "Use the Nighttime Check-in" rules. I found an envelope and followed it's instructions and found a pretty decent site. Gravel, level, no trees, FHU. TV Cable good, WiFi good (although could never get my phone to connect but laptop was OK. The check in paper said their office hours were 1 - 7pm. At 1:30 I filled out the papers and returned to the office. Still no one. I left the papers in the drop box. Never saw any campground personnel. There were no instructions about check in/check out times, instructions for trash, etc. This campground has the potential to be a very good campground but needs better management and communications. Noise from I-30 was a little loud at times, and there was a faint odor of sewage in the air. I marked the veteran rate. I gave this Campground a 5 because of the lack of communications and lack of any one operating the park. Would probably recommend this place to others, and we would stay here again if in the area (knowing the lack of communications.)

We stayed here in 2011 and loved it. Our campsite was right next to the sand dune #H7. Friendly folks all thru the park. Spring breakers were coming in on March 8th so we left. It was gonna be getting busy. Loved this place and will recommend it to others. We would definitely stay here again. (The rate reflects a 30 night stay of $580.00)

In response to a previous review. Yes, highway 376 is very steep (19% grade), but it does not lead into this campground. Highway 376 comes out of Branson up the side of a mountain to highway 265 and from there it goes to other campgrounds and also many other places. I would avoid highway 376, if I were in an RV, pulling or otherwise. Branson View Campground is built on the top and the side of a mountain and has, in my opinion, the best view of Branson you can find. Their brochure tells you of the driving and walking conditions in the park. After all, you are in the hills and mountains of the Ozarks, so different driving conditions will and do exist, you're not in Kansas, Toto. We have stayed at this campground many times and keep coming back and will continue to. The restrooms have recently been upgraded, water supply has a new filtration system, and the managers are very nice as well as informative and helpful. I only gave this park a "9" rating as I don't give 10's out very often.

GPS would not accept the campgrounds address, but we knew it was in the area so we watched for the KOA signs on I-44. Found it easy enough. Managers were very nice and guided us right to our site which was very long and accommodated our 34ft Class A and toad with room to spare. There is no cable TV but with our antenna we found 17 local stations. WiFi is excellent. Six Flags is almost straight across the interstate and very accessible. Lots of authentic train sounds, almost too much. Level gravel sites. We would stay here again.

Easy to get to off I-70. We like KOA's because you can almost always count on them to have very clean restrooms and camping areas. This park was no exception. Nice store. When I checked in, they asked me if I had a pet and I said yes, a cat. They immediately gave me a small bag of "kitty treat" and then they gave me a sack with two chocolate chip cookies. They were warm and fresh - excellent. Setup was fast and easy. Cable TV was great, Wi-Fi was great. They have a cafe on site called "The Krossroads Cafe". Good food, good prices, and a very warm fireplace. Open for breakfast and late for supper. They also had propane available. If we are in the area again, we will definitely stay here.

Date of Stay:

Easy to find off I-75. Rather tight turn into campground and when you come out of the park the view to your right is very compromised. The manager was very nice and friendly. Cable TV great, Wi-Fi great. Water was turned off for the season, but I was told this when I called a week earlier so was not surprised when I got there. We were visiting an Aquarium in Newport so we stayed for 2 nights. It is a 30 minute drive to Cincinnati. Great park and friendly folks. Rate reflects Good Sam. We will stay here again if in the area.

Overnighter is all it's worth. It's a place to sleep. Easy to find, but tight turns into and out of the park. Workamper manager was nice enough, even when she charged my credit card twice. The park was advertised as "Cable TV & Wi-Fi". There is no cable TV. It is either your satellite or antenna and the local TV channels come from Chattanooga, some 60 miles away. There are only 3 stations - all PBS. The Wi-Fi is from HughesNet and not usable because it is slower than dial up. Sites were gravel and not very level. Lots of full time locals. Water was turned off and no rate adjustment. I gave this place a 2 simply because it was a place to stay off the road, and the manager was nice. Rate reflects Good Sam.

Easy to get to off I-75. Very nice well kept park. Checked in and the manager was one of the nicest guys I have met in a long time. Very knowledgeable and friendly. He showed us on the map where we could park and gave us our choice of 5 different sites next to a very pretty lake. Set up was quick and easy and enjoyed the evening very much. We will stay here again if in the area. Rate reflects Good Sam.

Had read a comment about this park being "New" so thought we would try it. Am I ever glad we did. The managers are the nicest folks you would ever want to meet. They will guide you to your site and, if you want, will help you hook up. FHU's. The park is about a year old and they are still upgrading it. HUGE campground, Lots of large trees, lots of space between sites, fire rings, Direct TV cable connection free, WIFI is free and it works. They will give you a code to enter on your computer. If you need more than one computer code, just ask, they'll gladly give you as many as you need, we needed 5. . They will even supply wood for that "campfire" that you might want. Very easy in and out. Our GPS would not allow us to enter the full address of the park but the manager had told me that the park was "North" of Old Town on Hwy 349 on the East side of the hwy. We will definitely return here again.

Easy pull in off Hwy 98 for our Class A towing a car. Very friendly lady in the office and very helpful. Gave us a waterfront site which meant we had to unhook the car. Still can't believe we are camped nose in to the gulf with the water 15 feet from us, for a measly $33. Sand pads with FHU. TV works with more channels than you can shake a stick at, and the WiFi comes and goes. Planned to stay for one night and are still here after 3 nights. Great little campground. We'll be back.

Date of Stay:

We have actually stayed at Navarre several times before. Arrived at 5:30pm and it was dark and raining. Manager met me at our RV (a Class A, towing a car), gave me our checkin papers and said we were in #82. Wish she or someone had guided us in as we had a very hard time finding the space. FHU's but slow account hard rain. Packed sand pad pull through. TV had lots of channels but once again WiFi was almost non-existent. Sites are rather close together which made it harder to pull in when you are towing a vehicle. Exit was very slow because of very narrow roads and other campers parking their cars next to the road. We will stay again sometime as we like this area.

Date of Stay:

Our second Jellystone park in as many nights, in a Class A towing a car. Lady at the office was very nice and knowledgeable. Quick checkin. She said if we didn't like the site she gave us, just pick one out: we did. Lots of rain had flooded several sites, so we moved down a couple. Cement pads. Pull through. No TV where we were and WiFi was non-existent. Next morning when we left, the heavy rains had flooded a lot of the rest of the campground. We liked the campground and would definitely stay again.

Date of Stay:

The entrance to the park is great, makes you think you're entering a amusement park or the like. The folks in the office were great and very knowledgeable. And, WOW, if you like camping in the woods, this is the place for you. Our campsite was down near the lake, back up in the trees. Pad was gravel dirt mix and somewhat level. No TV, not even over the air. WiFi was non-existent. Good thing we had a DVD player. Rained like crazy that night and getting out was a little slippery. We would consider staying here again. We camped in a Class A rig towing a car.
